bei I'm so sorry. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

wolfie PMA- baby's just playing hide and seek! And like Katie said- every pregnancy is different. I hope this week goes by quickly for you.

kala0704 - I am on Lupron in the morning (5 units) and Gonal F at night (225).

So is the next step the egg retrieval if my follicles are good?? Is that how it goes? I guess I should be asking my Dr more questions. I really dont know what's going on...just waiting to get directions and going for bw and us....

I'm back from ER and rested up a little. I'm pretty sore right now. They retrieved 9 eggs and 8 were mature. This is the exact # of mature eggs that we had last time, so we'll see what the fert. report is tomorrow. Last cycle, we had 4 fertilize. I'm hoping for at least that many this time.

katie - My beta will also be on the 16th (unless you change the date...I don't know why you'd want to do such a thing :wink: ). Can't wait to see our BFP!!!!

wolffie - That is so strange. I'm hoping you see a sac next time. I think this just shows you from the get go that this little baby is going to be onry. :D

kala - Yeast infections are the worst!!! I didn't know that I had one when I was pregnant. I drank lots of cranberry juice, and they put me on an antibiotic too.

shelby - Congrats on the official news!!!!! WHEW-HEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!

statsgoddess - You go girl on holding out. You are stronger than I. Can't wait to hear your BFP on Monday!!

sancap - Alright - you are PUPO!!! I wish my RE gave pictures of the embies. I just think that is too cool. An embie picture is something that those that conceive naturally never get. Seems like a wonderful picture to me. :D

prayin - Good to see you, and I'm so glad your Mom is doing better. You're on my prayer list too.

bei - I am so sorry that it's another negative result. I can't even imagine what you're feeling right now. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

michaelajt73 – YAY!!! I hope your line gets darker!!!

Rali – YAY Rali!!!!! Boo for the reaction for YAY for PREGGERS!!!!! Congrats Hun. I hope your next beta is through the roof!!!

turtle0619 – Hello My endo sister!! You have been a little MIA. Glad you’re back. WICKED!! LOL. I had to look and see where you were from. I’m originally from Boston. Not too many people use that term. And yes, I couldn’t sleep last night. I woke up 3 times last night. I was so nervous this morning. Everything is perfect. I am so sorry that you haven’t gotten AF and now you’re being delayed. I could image your frustration. I cried and cried when my cycle got canceled. Your time will come too.

J&C – Is is very weird. Very glad that you got better real soon. GL today.

katie99 – WOW, that stinks. You won’t be able to POAS! Well, loads of PMA Hun!

Miyaya – PMA Hun. I’m praying for you.

Wolffie – I hope the baby is just hiding from you. I can’t wait for next u/s. I’m sure you can’t wait either. Why would they schedule your u/s so early. I’m 6wks 1 day today and I just had my first u/s.

kala0704 – too bad on the yeast infection. Yuck is right. I hope it clears up soon.

shelbyrn0214 – YAY!!!! What a beta #!!! CONGRATS!!!!!

sancap14 – You’re PUPO Girlie. Go home and relax now.

Bei – I’m am so sorry. We will be here for you.

AFM, I was SO nervous this morning!! I was so happy to see that we have 1 little bean cooking!!!! The doctor said everything looks great so far. Bean measured 6wks 1 day, which I am today. I couldn’t be any happier. We go back in on 10/12 for our second u/s. I am having mixed emotions about both not sticking. That would have been a REALLY big blessing, but I’m kind of relieved. I was getting really scared there for a minute. I’m feeling much more at ease now. He said everything I’m experiencing is normal. He can’t explain the spotting and can’t make it go away. He said about 30% of his patients get it.

Sorry for any ladies I’ve missed. I’ve had this typed up since this morning but I’ve been so busy all day. I updated it as best I could.

What high highs and low lows in just the last few pages. Congrats to all those that got that darker line or an official beta.

BEI - Hang in there. It will happen eventually. I hope you are feeling more yourself soon but it is ok to be mad and sad for a while.

My beta is Monday and I have little signs that I think I remember from the early days of DS...but it could all be in my head. Had a faint line on a HPT this am and (well duh) am hoping for a darker line tomorrow. My good friend is on this IVF roller coaster as well and just had a neg result - so I feel like if this cycle works for me I'll feel guilty and it will be hard to tell her. Crazy because she will be excited of course.

I am a big liar. I am not doing personals right now. I will tomorrow. Just wanted to let you know ER went well they got 12 eggies. We will get fert report tomorrow. Biopsy is monday and ET is Wednesday around noon.

J&C - glad youa re doing well! I hope they all turn into beautiful embies. Are you doing a 3 or 5 day transfer?

Feeling great as long as I lay around. Tummy is really crampy and hurts to peeeeeeee. Hope everyone is doing good. Thinking of you all.

Oh and I am planning in on cashing in on the salsa!!! =)

J & C ... Rest up!!! Sounds like great numbers. Good luck with the fert... I'm sure it's going to be great. Keep us posted.

Katie... BFP!! BFP!! You just take it easy... the wait sucks and there's nothing you can do... try NOT to think about it. (yeah, right)

Kala... feel better.

Shelby ... YAY,YAY,YAY!! I am so happy for you... You deserve good things. Thanks for taking such good care of all of us on here.

Wolfie ... PMA to you. Please keep us updated... My prayers for you.

Statsgoddess... I hope the weekend flies by for you... Monday ... good things on Monday!

Suncap... Good luck on PUPO... enjoy your pictures... try not to go crazy waiting.

Miyaya ... Lots of PMA to you.

Johannanita.. Sounds amazing. I'm so happy for you! :)

Malya ... Good numbers!!

Bei ... I know exactly how much you are hurting. I am so sorry. It sure doesn't seem fair, does it. It's okay to cry and hurt and ask why... but, when you feel better -- and you will -- try not to give up. Sometimes we have no control over what happens, but a positive spirit and incredible will can take us places we never knew we could get to. I'm holding on to that and I hope you do, too.

AFM ... I am still sad about my BFN, but forging on. I got my period today and it was extremely difficult for me. I know you guys can probably understand that. It made it all real. It's also VERY painful.
I am starting again right away and I am trying to stay positive. My DH has been so amazing. I've never loved him more.

I'm sorry if I missed anyone... Good luck to all and for those who are hurting, may you find peace. Thanks to all of you for helping me get through the tough times and realizing that getting back up and trying again is possible. :)

Congratulations to all PREGO MAMA'Z!!! :D I am extremely elated when i read wonderful positive news...

Shelby - i am so happy for you (hugs hugs hugs)!!!
Wolffie - i love hide & seek...your baby is already playing tricks on you!
Statsgoddess - can't wait to shout big YAY for you...GL
Kiwi - i love ur new ticker, up to now i dont know how to do it!
Sancap & Katie99 - GL...prayers sent for you for your BETA's

To the other're all included in my prayers and novena.
Cheering for those little Follies & Embies to grow!!!

Bei - i am so sorry :cry: I sent an arrow prayer for you that you & DH will be comforted. Just keep your faith - and it will happen in the right time.

To all the ladies in the 2ww w/ me - prayin for strength & patience as i am gettin very anxious too...I think i am gettin the Michelle bug and holding my peesticks now, but it's still too early!!! DH very supportive and more loving even when i am gettin way beyond crazy :wink: (While i can still get away w/ it!). I too, had a late reaction to PIO in cotton seed. I am on my 13 days now and my small butt is already swollen, tender and bruised. If not for alternate cold and warm compress, i would be in more agony. And i started dreading my next last shot tonight. They will change me in Prog. suppository with Crinone tomorrow. I remember some of you posted before that it works for you? Any tips on how it's being done? I will have to go back in the clinic tomorrow again for the meds and instructions. I was cramping and extremely exhausted when i got home today. Is that how it feels when the baby is implanting? Or is it the Estrace & Progesterone effect? I am on 7dp3dt. All i know is that my butt is very painful now and can't sleep on my side anymore. Ouccch!!!
