KayCe - Congratulations! I am so happy for you. Hope it goes well on monday.

Rosario - How are you doing? Any update? I hope its all good news.

Sabi - Twins! Fantastic news and good luck. Roll on March.

Debbie - so sorry to hear that. I hope you are coping alright honey. We are hear for you if you need to let it all out.

lw918 - do you have a set date for ER now? You made me laugh with the shopping trip. I was like that first time but not this time. You must be exhausted. Will you be travelling back anf forth for transfer or staying over?

KJ - 57 eggs. Woah! Are you feeling ok? Any update on your wonderful 18 embies?When is the transfer?

Vicky - hope you had a great anniversary and are enjoying your short break.

AFM, I am slowly going mad. I hate the 2ww and I had forgotten just how much! There is a whole week to go til we know one way or the other. I keep thinking that its going to work and then think there is no way it could. My boobs are not tender at all. I feel rubbish and am sleeping a lot but dh was not too well either. Ahhh....

Hello ladies...well as I am sure most of you figured out my cycle was cancelled even before it started. My estradiol levels went through the roof and my ovaries grew to the size of grapefruits...all without stims, I was only taking Lupron which should have supressed my ovaries not stimulated them. My RE said he has never had a patient like me! :shock:
ANyway I am on bedrest now and am sidelined until my ovaries return to their normal size. I am guessing my next fresh cycle will start in September or somewhere around there. I am sad.
My mom is doing better..thanks for all your well wishes for her.
I am going to take a break from the boards for awhile until I am ready to start up again. Many prayers to you all.

Debbie- I'm so sorry to hear about your embies :( Keep the faith, though, and don't give up.

PrayinforBFP- Bummer about your ovaries. I've never heard of someone's ovaries doing the opposite of what they're supposed to do on Lupron! That's the craziest thing I've ever heard. Get well soon so you can hop back on the IVF train!

AFM- I finally get to take my trigger shot tonight at MIDNIGHT! WOO HOO! The only bad thing about taking it at midnight is that I have to get up at 5 AM to go in for bloodwork. My ER is officially scheduled for Tuesday! YIPPEE!!

Hi everyone!

Sorry I haven't been posting as much as I use to, but I am still recoupong from the long weekend last weekend, and with being sick the past couple of days, I just haven't had the energy. That being said, I am starting to feel better and can hopefully post more, but I am still reading and thinking of you all.

marymeg- congrats on trigger, and I will be keeping my fingers crossed for lots of eggies on tuesday. Why do you have to go for bw tomorrow?

prayin- I am so sorry to hear about the canceled cycle. I think I may have had a similar reaction to lupron, my e2 went up and I had developed a cyst. I am about to start lupron again this week and I just pray that the same thing will not happen, canceled cycles really do stink. I am glad to hear you mom is doing better, and I will watch out for you cycling in sept...if I get delayed again, I may be right with you.

angie- hang in there...I know it goes by soooo slow. Try to do some things to relax and get your mind off things. I know BB is helping a little at least.

debbie- I am soooo sorry to hear about your embies. I can't believe that happened to you and chris. Let us know what you decide to do next.

sabi- congrats on twins, I figured your numbers were multiples! And it is not "Farewell" or goodbye, it's "See you on the other side." Hopefully we will all join you on the pregnant side of the boards soon. No matter what, I will see you on the parents side soon. :D

Nothing new for me, I will start lupron on Wednesday, and I will go for supression check on july 30. For now, I am trying to stay stress free to give my body the best chance possible this time around.

Hello Ladies, how are we all? Hope you've all had a nice weekend :)

Ange - I'm the same as you - slowly going mad! I had a bad day yesterday, just couldn't stop crying. Feeling better today though. How are you?

KayCe - congrats! Hope your beta results go well - keep us updated!

Debbie - sorry to hear your news. Look after yourself.

Prayin4BFP - so sorry about your cancelled cycle. Take care. You know where we are when you feel up to talking x

Well I didn't have the greatest of anniversary - we argued! :( My DH isn't the most romantic or best at showing feelings etc... Anyway the way I was feeling I felt I need pampering, spoiling, wanted etc... and he was very grumpy on Friday and just didn't seem bothered about going out for a meal so I said not to bother and didn't feel I wanted to be around him. I've felt that everyone has been praising him for his increased sperm count (which is fantastic and I am very proud of him) but seem to be forgetting that I've been the one that's gone through everything and produced 17 eggs, had the ER and ET and the one been in pain etc.. I've felt that DH thinks "just get on with it". I said it'd be nice when one of our friends/family praise him for his increase sperm count for him to say "but Vicky's done really well" Plus I was annoyed that DH went out on the town drinking on Saturday with the lads - I felt that now he's "done his part" that he can go back to his old ways of drinking alcohol every weekend and dragging his sperm count back down. Plus when DH said "I've done my part, my job's over now" How I didn't bounce on him I don't know! Grrrrrr He was a good lad and was in early on Saturday night (especially as he still has to help with my pesseries) but I was still mad.

We had a big talk yesterday which I spent most of it crying. He said he hasn't realise he's been the way he has. I said this is our 4th cycle and he still hasn't realised how to be around me during this 2ww! He said about praising me that he feels he doesn't have to because I always do well with producing eggs but I said it'd be nice to hear it from him time to time. He said he knows (apparently!) that it's worked this time and he doesn't have to worry about his sperm count as much. But I still neither of our job is done until we have our baby in our arms! Well he had a good talk and we're ok now! This is the worst part of the whole IVF process - emotions and trying to deal with them!

Sorry for the rant ladies, but I do feel a bit better now!

Since ET last Wednesday all I've had is period type pains. Been having a lot of twinges, not as bad as my normal period stomach cramps but I'm having them nearly every day. Then one day my boobs will hurt and the next they won't! Everytime I get a few cramps I'm expecting to go to the loo and AF make an apperance! I don't know whether it's from the medication I'm still on or if it's from ER on the 10th or because my ovaries are still a little swollen! I'm trying not to read too much into it but I can't remember if this is how I felt during my last 2ww on my 2nd fresh cycle in 07!! Suppose all will be revealed on 29th!

Post by TrueBeliever » Mon Jul 20, 2009 12:50 pm

Good Morning Ladies... How is everyone doing? I have noticed we are reaching the end of teh month, some have left to go over to the pregnancy boards, some have moved over to the August thread and some of ours are still waiting it out hoping to end our journey here on this board with a BFP!!

I have been feeling pretty good. I had some mild cramping the first 3 days after my FET, other than that I have not felt anything and have absolutely no symptoms. My DH and I was trying to remember how I was feeling with my last transfer, it was a year ago and of course I remember nothing...LOL I am just keeping my fingers crossed, and hope to receive some good news in 4 days... WOW 4 days, time is moving pretty good. I am thinking of POAS, if I do it will be the day before beta to try to brace myself of what's to come. Continue to pray for me and send your well wishes, it means so much.

ct_michele-

I think the reason our clinic sends us in on the morning after our trigger shot is just to continue to monitor estrogen levels.

carolyn- aaaah, morning sickness! I think us ivf'ers are the only ones in the world that look forward to it. I hope it gets better for you soon. 2nd trimester is right around the corner. I will be starting lupron no matter what on wednesday...I just have to pray that e2 stays low and I can start estrace after my supression check on the 30th, so keep those fingers crossed for me!

truebeliever- only 4 days wow! Let us know if you give in a POAS.

Vicky- rant on! I can understand your frustration. I have always looked at this ivf thing as "our" fight, even though I have no reporductive issues myself and it is 100% male factor. I never looked at it as DH's problem, and neither one of us looked at it as "his" or "her" part...so I think once your dh realizes that he will understand more. Hopefully after your discussion, he is more sympathetic to your feelings now and things will get better. IVF is such an emotional roller coaster, you definitely don't need anything else affected your emotions.

Hi

Vicky - so sorry to hear about your weekend! It must be very frustrating. DH has been trying to keep me entertained but does not understand I just want to rest and give it everything. We went to Brid on saturday morning and after an hour I said I was ready to sit down for lunch and then he was wanting to look at more shops, and wander along the pier. I felt sorry for hime yesterday as he was really bored just staying at home (like thats not what we have to do all the time!). Take care though and hopefully all is working.

Truebeliever - wow 4 days. I will be thinking of you. I so hope it is a BFP and we can end the board with 4 BFP's!

KayCE - Have you got your official result now? Good luck honey.

Michele - Sorry to hear you have not been well. It wont be long til August now. I have started to do my family tree to keep me distracted and it has been fascinating. So this has kept me busy to some extent and I was doing really well til Friday and it got too much. I have had a better day today. I have visitors tonight and then on Wednesday.

This 2ww seems really different to the last one and I just don't know if every one is different. I have had bad stomach cramps and keep expecting AF so I think that is half the problem. The progesterone is making me feel sick every time I eat so that hasn't changed. Oh well, I best tidy a bit before my visitors arrive.
