Good morning!

I'm having a lot of fun this morning! :? For some reason both dogs are acting like lunatics. The puppy is tearing around the house like its some sort of racetrack, just took a fast turn & knocked over both dogs food & water bowls! What a mess! how convienent that we just put down a new rug in the dining room 2 days ago! Sigh!

johannanita - I lived in Fl for a few years, I hear you! Storms arent to be taken lightly down there! I do miss never having to shovel snow! Good luck with stims! Did I hear you right? Did you say that menopur starts on stims day 2? Which protocol is that called?

gi -My fingers are crossed for you being in the 2ww soon!!

cheeky - Dont be nervous! A new RE means new methods & new ideas!! - let us know when you're done! - xoxo

ladybug - YAY! see, IM injections not so bad! Just make sure you move afterwards to help disperse the med into the muscle, a heating pad after helps too!

michele -We miss you!

AFM - I should be over on the other thread since I'm officially Sept / Oct now, But I'm too attached to you guys! I guess now I really will be a typing fool! :D HUGS & PRAYERS TO US ALL!!

faith -I know how it feels, hon. try to hang in there. Raising your dosage should help. Also time is on your side - day 7 they still have time to catch up! Not everyone stims for the same amount - some women need a little more stim time -have faith! Dont get bummed yet! - xoxo

Faith9455 sometimes theses nurses have no tact how can she say what you can and cant feel!!! I always felt some action in my ovaries around day 3 of stims. A friend of mine had very small follies at day 7 scan also and was told she was prob. going to get cancelled but she went on bedrest and on day 10 they turned around. You just take it easy its still early days and some people take longer to stim. P.S rant and rave as much as you want you deserve it xxx

johanita thats a long hurricane season! Just rain rain and lots of rain here in ireland but i love the winter season!

katie - you HAVE to stay here because we love you and are attached to you too!!! I guess we can occasionally allow you to go visit the "other thread", but remember, you were ours first! :lol:

gi - my 2nd sono is today at 11:30. :shock: I'm trying to be positive, but I'm nervous.

ladybug - YAY for you, I am so proud. I had no doubt you would be master of the shot! :D

Faith - hang in there hon, you WILL get the follies you need!

AFM - My 2nd sono is today at 11:30.
In the middle of the night last night, my husband rolled over, and his elbow came down HARD right on my left hip where the PIO injections go. OMG I thought I was going to DIE. He felt so horrible, poor guy, and kept apologizing over and over. :shock:

Katie - I'm doing a microdose protocal. I'm assuming it's because they think they might have over suppressed me last time. So this is diluted lupron. I start 20 units of the microdose lupron on day 2 of my cycle in the am and pm. Then on day 3 I start my stims of menopur and follistim which is hopefully next week. I can't wait!!!!!!

gi - Yes, it currently 8:53 here, so less than three hours to go!

Anyone else in here on PIO shots feel like you have rocks in your hips? Ugh. I've been on these for just over 4 weeks now and it's building up back there!

Oh my goodness guys, I am soooo sorry to have neglected this thread for a few days, but I am paying for it now trying to catch up. I know I will miss a bunch of you, just know I am thinking about you all and praying. And if something needs fixing on the list, just let me know!

Babydust- I am so sorry to here you were cancelled. I think maybe it would be good to get a second opinion, I think second opinions can't ever hurt, right?

marymeg- I remember feeling bloated all the time on progesterone, and felt like I was starting to show at only about 6 weeks pregnant. Hang in there, it will ease up once you end the progesterone.

katie- ella's teething is going about as good as it can, one tooth did break through, and even though she is a bit fussy, she is handling it really well. I am sorry you got cancelled too, trust me, I know how you feel! The two of us have been trying to cycle for months now...don't worry girl, we will get there eventually!

I have to go back and read more...I am taking notes while I read so I can catch up!

We have ourselves a heartbeat ladies!!! :D My progesterone actually dropped, so they are having me stay on the shots. Can I get ALL good news for once? :shock: I know I should not worry because everything looked perfect today, and my progesterone isn't too low, just lower than they want. I'm confused on what made it go back down after it shot up so nicely!!!

Hi Ladies,

I am going so crazy during the 2WW. Ahhhh, I just wanna know already.

I do have a blood test Monday but it will have only been a week. I wonder if that will tell me anything.

I feel normal, I did have mild cramping but I am fine now. Plus, I have been looking for implantation bleeding and haven't seen any.

The thing that keeps me going is that since they gave me a 65% cance, it is more likely that it will be successful than not... but still, the suspense is killing me.

Sticky dust, baby dust, (((hugs))) and pregnancy prayers to all.

Hi All,

I had my transfer today. They thawed two blasts and they thawed out 100% and looked perfect so we decided to only transfer one because we REALLY do not want multiples, and they refroze the remaining one. I have three frosties for later this way. I feel pretty good - just woke from my nap and DH will be taking care of our 10 month old all weekend so I don't have to lift him much. Keeping my fingers crossed!

I will do personals later, but take care everyone!
