OK - I'm still bouncing off the walls, but forgot to do personals, sorry!

miyaya -So they dont plan on giving you a fert report? HUH? between that & lost bloodwork I'd be over there raising a stink! When will they let you know whats going on? I hope its soon! hang in there, hon - hugs to you!

sancap -thanks! I'm sure your supp mishap is fine, but no more forgetting, ok? Are you super excited for Fri? I'm thrilled to get a 3 day instead of a 2 day like last time! Fingers crossed for us!

j & c -They are growing & thats all that matters! I know you are stressing, but theres no reason to! as long as they're growing, relax. Yes, I know, easier said than done! sending you loads of PMA! when is your next appt? 3 tries for a bloodwork stick? that would have pissed me off too! OW!!

stats -thanks! You had the best fert rate ever! You raised the bar too high!

shelby -Yes, maam - DH used up a vacation week for this, kind of had to since we have large strong dogs that LOVE to jump all over you!
besides, after paying for 4 ivf in a years time, who could afford a vacation anyway? maybe a tent in the yard! :lol:

michele -a line is a line - it will get darker!!

you are all in my thoughts & prayers! - xoxo

Thank you all for the kind words...but now I am getting nervous maybe I spoke too soon...what if I was seeing things? I don;t want to have to be the bearer of bad news tomorrow or the next day...ugh, even with things looking up, it is still torture!

Katie- So glad both fertilized, that is awesome news! I am praying that your embies grow great for your transfer.

Washingtonda- Thanks girly! I know I am being stalked by many of my ivf sisters out there...and it is flippin' fabulous to know that so many people care! I see you put a countdown to your next try...how exciting to be planning on trying for a sibling for Michaela. I will be watching for you!

sancap- I think you will be fine, I wouldn't worry much about the progesterone. Are you doing crinone or something else? I am doing crinone twice a day, but that is just for my FET, when I did a fresh cycle, I only did the crinone once a day anyway and I was fine.

Tammy- OMG tammy, everyone was saying the same thing to shelby yesterday, about an early line meaning possibly twins...that would be crazy! I don;t even want to get that far ahead of myself, once I get some beta numbers I will start analyzing. i know my first beta is going to seem like a high number, but that is b/c I am testing 2 days late b/c the office is closed on saturday, so my first number will be like most peoples second. I can not even imagine having 3 kids under the age of 2, but I will be blessed with whatever is in store for me...and I can handle anything!

syanna- if you go to the genral forum there is a thread for the acronyms, that will help a lot. If you don't know one, just ask and we will help. The frequent ones are:

DH- Dear Hubby DD/DS- Dear daughter/dear son
BFN/BFP- Big fat negative, big fat positive
POAS (My favorite right now- Pee on a stick (Home pregnancy test)
ER- Egg retrieval ET- embryo transfer
2ww- 2 week wait, time from your retrieval to your test
Beta- blood test for pregnancy
PUPO- Pregnant until proven otherwise (what you are on the 2ww!)

katie - I am SO happy to hear you have two growing well!!!! Our first day they told us 3 had fertilized, but the next day they said we had 4...the last one caught up overnight. Ironically, the one that was playing catch-up was one of the three we transferred - one of the initial 3 wasn't doing as well and, not surprisingly, did not make it to freeze. I will be thinking of you and can't wait to hear your transfer update!!!!

sancap - I would think you would be fine. I almost forgot my PIO shot the other night but remembered at the last minute. Somehow I'm not as sore this time as the last time, so there is less of a nagging reminder that I should be doing something in the evening :)

CT-Michele- I am on crinone once a day. I just figured it was supposed to be at night (that makes more sense to me I guess) but then I read my instructions and it was supposed to be in the morning. I didn't miss one, it was just about 9 hours late...I'm sure it's fine.

Thanks everyone!

Hi Ladies!

I am reading a lot more than posting lately. I want you to know that I am still thinking and praying for all of you everyday!

Michele - yay for a faint faint line. It will get darker! I'm sure you are not seeing things!

katie - SO thrileld that you have two embies growing nicely! Soon they will be back with their mama and SO much happier!

syanna - nice to hear from you! I hope everything works out on Friday. Keep us posted.

Sorry for those that I missed. I am thinking about you!!!

AFM, just waiting.....I have my first u/s tomorrow. I will be 5weeks 2 days. It's early so they will probably just see a sac (or sacs - fingers crossed).

Sending lots of sticky, growing, doubling, dividing dust to everyone!

Hi, I didn't want to POAS but DH suddenly got excited so we did it this morning. I was sooooo nervous but we got a faint second line. I don't wanna get overly excited so I am waiting to do another one tomorrow maybe the line will get darker. Hopefully it is not a mistake. :twisted:

katie99 - I am so thrilled for you!!!!! That is great news. I hope they continue to do what they're supposed to. I'm super excited for you. I'll be praying for you.

washingtonda - I did the same thing, but I think I purchased 1 of every HPT out there. lol I had two digital ones and I did one after my second faint line and one right before beta.

CT_Michele - YAY Michele!!! I'm going to be happy for you because you're a POAS Pro enough to know a line from a shadow. :D I have faith!!!

wolffie - I'm sooo jealous!!! I want my U/S to be tomorrow!!! I only have a few more day left til Friday. I hope you see everything you're supposed to see tomorrow!!! Can't wait to hear back from you.

kiwi - YAY!!! Another faint line!!! I hope it gets darker and darker!!! Congrats!!!!

Goodluck on Friday, i am cheering for you! By the way, I had my FET 9/26/09 and beta on 9/9/09. And thank you for sending me warm thoughts before my transfer...greatly appreciated!

Hi everyone!

Sangria I too was in love with my multi cell embies! I looked at the picture they gave me of them over and over! And yes, waiting for AF is absolute TORTURE when you need it to get here!

AKOWENS sorry to hear about your 2 little embies. I'm sure they are doing much better now that they are where they belong- comfy cozy for the next 9 months!

sancap 8 fertilized! WOOO HOOO that's awesome!! thanks for the AF dance! :)

rayofsunshine Thanks for the info. If AF doesn't come this week, I'm going to ask my RE about the PIO shot and Prometrium. I'm praying for your BFP from your successful IUI!

Marya I'm so sorry. I know there is nothing we can say to make the pain go away. We are here for you.

Shelby YEAH!!!! COngrats!!! Thanks for the AF dance! :)

Katie You are in the EXACT situation I was in. I, too, had 3 eggs retrieved, and all 3 fertilized, but when we went in for the transfer only 2 had made it. They transferred them both after 3 days (since there were so few, they didn't want to wait to risk a 5dt) and I now have my beautiful DD Samantha who is 13 months old! Good luck!!! :)

miyaya so sorry about the mix-up at the RE. I would be LIVID!!

Johannanita Thanks for the AF dance. I keep feeling like she's on her way, but she never shows! :(

j&c I'm sure it's taking long cuz you're making the perfect eggies! :)

kala I'm still waiting on AF. Could you send her this way please! GL hon!



CT Michele I'm praying for your dark line! :)

If I left anyone out, I apologize. You are all in my thoughts and prayers!

hi girls. well my RE called and only one made it to fertilization. I am surprised I got one. He said that as long as it divides he thinks we should transfer tomorrow? what do you think? Is there success with day 2? He said embryos are happier in the womb and we need to give it a shot. He said they found my blood. Mix up I guess with the OR and nurse team. He is waiting on my results. He thinks we triggered too early and I am one that needs larger follicles to contain a mature egg. He also thinks we will use Pregnyl for trigger next time if needed at a higher dose.

So it looks like we will transfer tomorrow. Not sure how I feel about it but feel like its the only chance we have this cycle.
