Sabi—12 fertilized embies that’s WONDERFUL, grow little embies grow. Just a few more days until your ET, how exciting.

Sarah--- it’s official you are PUPO, the 2ww will be over before you know it.

Julie--- Congratulation on your positive HPT, are you going to test more over the weekend.

Kushka---13 follies is a good number, good luck with your ER on Sunday.

Rosario---3 that is amazing, it must have put your mind at ease to see the gestational sacks. Sorry to hear about your DH’s car, maybe it is a good opportunity to get a bigger car for your triplets.

Katie---hope your injections are going well, not too many bruises.

Carolyn---how is 2ww going?

AFM--- So I started POAS 10dpo, and there is a faint positive line. Again on 11dpo still positive (maybe the line is a little darker). I plan to POAS for the next two days; I figure why not it makes me smile. Can’t wait until beta on Monday.
Everyone have a great weekend, and PMA,
03/11~2ndIVF(ICSI)m/c @ 7weeks

so much to catch up on!

sabi ~ Good luck tomorrow!

Rosario~ OMGOSH! Wow triplets! whoo hooo!

Stay positive~ Funny! I guess when we eat, sleep, and think, we become!

I started my provera on Friday, and AF is here already! I hope this is just spotting, but kinda hard to think that when it is pretty heavy.. My baseline isn't until 6/23?? Is this ok? I thought I was to take this Provera for 10 days and THEN wait for AF. She has shown her face earlier. LOL..

to have fun~ Have you started the Provera yet?

I will get to personals later but just wanted to post a quick update on myself.

I went in for bw and an us yesterday and today and have about 25 follicles cooking.

I take my trigger shot in about 45 minutes, I have to go to DH's work and we'll barricade ourselves in a conference room to do it :D

My retrieval is set for Monday and than transfer on Wednesday. I'm so glad everything is here, I'm so ready to be PUPO!!

belle - love the trigger scenario -can you imagine what someone would think if they walked in .. prob assume you were shooting up drugs .. which is true in the strictest sense but no the type they would assume :lol: Good luck for monday xx

Sabi - we need news on transfer date xx

Julie - hope the migrane has gone and excellent news on darker line :lol:

Rosario - keep the faith.. xx

Debbie - can't help you with provera - maybe worth speaking to RE so it does not mess your schedule up xx

we are still in Prague - its red hot today and i love the sunshine but too scared to lsit in friends garden in case I fry my embies :shock:

DH gone with friends to american football game so I have had a little snooze, eaten some more and will go and finish reading my book - we fly back to Uk tonight and then not back to work till wednesday and then it will be only one week till beta :roll: :roll:

Hey Everyone, hope you all are having a good weekend.

Rosario - OMG TRIPLETS!!!!! Are ya scared to death yet. I think it is good to be cautious, until you see the heartbeats. Like you said a lot can happen in the next couple of weeks, but Congrats for now.

Debbie - I also started Provera on Friday. I actually had a little spotting on Thursday. I figured it is the estrogen messing with my body. Like you I thought we wouldn't get AF till after stopping Provera.

Michelle - I am so sorry to see that you are being delayed again. I know how much it sucks. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Belle-02 - Hehe shooting yourself up at hubby's work. Last time I had to do my trigger shot during a hockey game. That was so much fun. Good luck for your ER. Hope you get some good quality eggs.

EYCI - CONGRATS on your positive HPT!!!! This board is starting out really well.

Wishful - Good luck in the 2ww, hope you don't go too insane. Enjoy being in Prague. When are you supposed to be heading back home?

nicksgam - Can't wait to see what your BEta # will be. Congrats on the positive HPT.

Hope everyone else is doing good. Good luck to you all.

AFM - I have a consult on Wed to get my schedule. I started Provera last Friday and I guess start Dex on Wed. Should be going in for my baseline sometime next week. Gosh i still need to order all my drugs. YEAH!!! i am trying to stay relaxed for this cycle so I am not going to worry about anything. I know easier said then done. Sorry I am MIA most of the time. I try and check up with everyone but part of my relaxing is trying not to get wrapped up in the boards.

Hi Everyone, Just a quickie from me..

There's so many exciting things going on on this board right now. I'm thinking of all of you and praying for success all round. You are all an inspiration!

Just wanted to let you all know I had my ER today. All went well and they told me the clinic will call tomorrow to let me know how many eggs they got. I asked RE (who is a personality free zone!) when I'd know how many will have fertilized and he told me, as though I was stupid for asking, that they'd tell me tomorrow. I just have a question in my mind though - we hadn't made firm decisions on whether to do ICSI or not and we said we'd wait and see how many eggs we had before doing so. But now I'm thinking that he's going to decide this on his own 'cos I'm pretty sure they'll have set it all up by now. Does this make sense? Am I going mad, and do any of you have experience of this? (I'm having to do it all in French which doesn't make things any clearer!)

Lots of hope, happiness, strength and PMA to all of you.
Me: 38 & DH: 38 - unexplained
TTC for 5 years
2 x failed IUIs (many cancelled IUIs)
1st IVF: 3 eggs, 2 fert, 2 transferred - BFN
2nd IVF: 14 eggs, 7 fert, 2 transferred - BFP (m/c at 8 weeks)
3rd (FET): 2 transferred 7 April. Beta = 21 April

Kushka- I am surprised they did not tell you the number of eggs today and discuss icsi. Most clinics do call the day after retrieval with a fertilization report. But they will be doing the fertilizing today, whether it is icsi or putting the spermies in the tray to let them do their thing. If you are not going to talk to them again today, then it sound slike they will be making that decision for you, but I am sure your clinic knows what is best. I didn't have a choice, because we are male factor with extremely low count, we had to do icsi. But I have seen lots of success both ways, so I wouldn't worry too much.

Hello Everyone!

There is so much exciting news going on here! It makes me so happy. I had to go for b/w this morning so have been up since 4:30 ( oh how I love the 2hr each way drive!! :shock: ) they finally call at 5pm to lower the bravelle and tell me they need to double check can I come tomorrow too ( they said a labeling issue) So why even bother to lower my dose if they had a label mix up? Send me some patience dust ? i need it this week ladies. I am starting to have that bloated tender abdomen feeling but other wise just looking forward to ER/ET. You ladies are in my thoughts & prayers....
