Good morning ladies,
Well, I definitely spoke too soon yesterday about this time being better than last time and feeling good. What a mess last night. I stopped taking percocet because it was upsetting my tummy, and switched to extra strength tylenol, and the pain increased. Then last night I woke up at like 1:30 in the morning in pain, and ended up on the couch for a few hours with a heating pad, which helped. Then this morning, I was about to post to you all and instantly felt tummy sick. And it happened, I haven't gotten stomach sick in a long time. I went back to sleep for a few hours and seem to be a bit better now. Dh is still really sore too. We both said this is going to be a long day, since neither one of us is really in a good enough condition to keep Ella very occupied, we just hope she takes lots of naps today.
I am going to try and catch up, but I apologize if I miss anyone, my brain is mush today.
waitingfor4- I put you in the 2ww. If i understand correctly, you ovulated on your own, did the bd (babydance...lol) and are now in your 2ww, right? Good luck, we are keeping everything crossed for you!
stats- sounds good. What day of stims are you on? Smaller follies can definitely bloom in time, and more may pop up too. At my first u/s (stim day 4) they saw a toal of 12 follies, and the next day they saw 12 just on one side, I was up to a total of 22. I think when follies reach between 17-22 mm, you can expect close to a mature egg.
neffi- I switched you to fresh cycle coming soon. Sorry about that. Maybe a protocol change is what you need. How exactly does RE eval your uterus??
ianmichael- we would try to laugh about it, but it hurts to laugh...lol it hurts to cough, sneeze, laugh, pee, almost everything! I am sure someday we will look back and laugh though.
dys- you have very similar symptoms to my first bfp, bloating sore tummy, and nauseous by smells and what I hate. I didn't have a ton of morning sickness, but nothing seemed appetizing to me, I just didn't want to eat, I think I lived off of bagels and mashed potatoes for a month or two.
kline- sorry to hear it was full af, I was holding out hope for spotting or implantation blood. I do hope you get to cycle again soon, and I will be watching for your eventual success story. I am really considering starting to accept stories for my book. I have to look into how to publish something like that, but even if it takes me years to do, I really want to do it, and I plan on donated some of the proceeds to onfertility research.
hazel- we are jealous of the sun you have, it has been crummy hear for 2 days like dys said, but it is supposed to be a nice weekend, maybe even too hot, like 85f on saturday and 90 on sunday!
amfm- welcome to our lovely thread. I am not lying when I saw this is one of the nicest threads I have been a part of over my years here. I am sorry to hear about your aunt, it must be a very tough time for you and your family. I can not imagine dealing with ivf on top of that. Let us know when you start stims, I will add you to our waiting to start ivf list.
mel- I am so sorry to hear your news. I am glad your RE is going to test, if you have perfect ferilized embryos, then I would think it is an issue with implantation. I hope you can start again soon. As far as success stories, I suggest you go over to the parents after treatment thread and post a thread for success stories for people with failed attempts. You will get a lot of responses and hopefully inspiration. They may take a while to post since that side of the boards is slower with little ones at home, but they are such an inspirational group of people.
Ok, I think I got most of you. AFM- Just waiting for the fertilization report phone call, and I will update you as soon as the call comes. I had a dream that they called and said none fertilized....ugh, I hate waiting for phone calls.
