nicksgam/Nicole - how lovely to hear from you! So happy that all is going well with your little bean.
Rosario - sweetie, you've been in my thoughts and prayers since your post on Saturday. How are you and the triplets doing??
vicky - how's the 2ww treating you, are you still analysing every last twinge? I so remember that from my last cycle during the 2ww, and I'm sure I'm not to be any more relaxed this time around! Sorry to hear about your argument with DH - I know what you are feeling with him starting to relax back into old ways. My DH was brilliant through my first cycle and really supportive, especially with not drinking and changing his diet to improve sperm quality, but I kind of feel that this time because we're doing an FET and he doesn't have to produce a sample, he's more detached, so I feel more alone this time. He's also drinking (albeit in moderation) on and off, and I'm trying not to be annoyed by it because although he doesn't have to give a sample this time, it's really hard when he has a drink and I can't. So I'm pleased that you managed to talk to your DH about it, and he understands how you feel. I should probably do the same, but in all likelihood I'll wimp out until it I get really upset/emotional and I burst into tears one day, lol...
KayCe - praying for a great result from your beta today, so excited about your HPT results!!
truebeliever - not long until beta on Friday!
katie99 - not long until stims...
KJGrant - keeping my fingers crossed that you've escaped any worse symptoms for OHSS. Did you have a smooth transfer yesterday morning? Wow, 18 fertilised eggs, that's incredible. How many did you transfer and how many did you freeze?
angieinhull - so many 2ww ladies at the moment! Hope you manage to keep busy this week, but also rest well. I laughed at your story about the weekend - quite a role reversal on the usual scenario, huh, the man wanting to go round the shops while the woman just wanting to have a sit down?
marymeganb - hope ER goes smoothly for you tomorrow, report in when you can with the news...
prayin4BFP - (((((hugs))))) I hope you get better soon.
wickedwheel - honey, I'm so sorry that the HCG levels still aren't good. Please let us know how you get on today at your next b/s - you're in my thoughts and prayers.
Debbie - I'm so sorry, I was so looking forward to reading about your transfer. Do they know what happened with your embryos?
lw918 - hope those follies are still growing nicely. Are you still on for ER the middle of this week? If so, I guess you must be doing your trigger around now? I was a bit confused about your having to decide how many eggs to fertilise - were you only going to fertilise some and then freeze the rest of the eggs unfertilised? I had heard that embryos freeze better than unfertilised eggs, so I didn't quite understand, but hey I'm a relative newbie to the crazy world of IVF!!
katieg - how's the BCP's going? You're due for FET early August, correct? When will you move onto the estrogen pills?
to_have_fun - so sorry that your embies didn't make it to blast, (((((hugs))))). Has the clinic been able to tell you why that was, and what they can do differently next time?
Michele - sounds like you've had your hands full this past week, what with getting over the trip for your brother's wedding and being ill. Good luck with starting Lupron this week, I'm so happy to hear that you can start an August cycle, September seems like such a long time away! I will be keeping everything crossed that those e2 levels behave themselves. And I loved the ABC News story, what a great outcome for them. As you say, it gives us all hope.
sabi - twins, yippee! My best wishes for a healthy and smooth pregnancy. I hope to be able to join you over on the 'moms to be' side soon, but in the meantime, please pop back now and then to see us all and cheer the rest of us on...
AFM, I'm pleased to say that my dog came home on Thursday night after being on a drip for 36 hours, and is now on the mend (katie99 - what she and my other dog managed to eat is still a total mystery, but having researched the disease (hemorrhagic gastroenteritis) online, it seems that it can come out of the blue for dogs and be quite serious, so we are just counting ourselves lucky that she made it though). So now that I'm not panicking about her any more, I'm back to counting down the hours to my FET! I have a scan on Friday afternoon to check my lining and will then know more on timing, but we're still expecting FET next Monday or Tuesday. Only a week away now - eeeek, so excited!! P.S. Michele, if you get a moment, could you move me up to the 'on estrogen for FET' area please?
