Cricket – Welcome! Don’t worry about the abbreviations. They become easier to figure out. There is a ‘sticky note’ on the General Forum that has them listed, too. Congrats! You are PUPO (pregnant until proven otherwise)!!!!

Katie – I agree with you about the going mad during the 2ww! I considered cramping and pinching a good sign that the embies were digging in! We need twins!!!!

J&C – that is incredible! I’m so happy for you!

Sancap – You will be here sooner than you think! YAY!!!! PIO is progesterone in oil. It can come in different kinds of oil (olive oil, sesame oil, ethyl oleate….). My clinic says either take one shot per day or 3 pills and 3 suppositories. I take the shot because my insurance covers it and I save about $200 every 2 weeks!

Iamhopeful – I have heard of that in passing, but never researched it. I say try anything!

Michele – I’m so sorry! You will stay in my prayers. Keep your chip up! HE will help you find a way! It's not over yet!

Hey ladies!
I had bloodwork done this morning, and yup, a 3rd shot coming. So now Lupron 5 units in the morning, Repronex in the evening and 150 Gonal F at night, and then bw and us on Thursday. I am so hoping it'll just be for this week so next week i can start the next stage!
I had a dream about a gold necklace..then all of a sudden, another gold necklace appeared right next to it! (in my culture, dreams of gold means baby boy, dreams of diamonds means baby girl) So...according to my dream...2 boys!!!! But i dont want to get my hopes up. Im just very anxious and excited. Hope all of you are doing well!

syanna i see you are in boston. i was wondering what RE you go to? i am in new hampshire and i am with the fertility centers of new england. their main office is in reading, ma. but i go to one of their other offices in NH. they are all really great RE's from harvard and all of them are ranked top fertility specialists in the country!

shelby woohooo on the awesome 2nd beta!!!

sancap how are you?? i'm keepin my eye on you and you are always in my thoughts! us endo girls gotta stick together!

katie i'm sure i will be the same way about every twitch, but thats nothing new for me...ever since me and dh have been TTC every month i read into everything. so after almost 2 years of feeling things i might be used to it..but probably not....haha and now i am rambling!! i just wanted to say hi i guess! :D

((((((((((((((((michelle))))))))))))))))))))) we are here for you always!!!!

AFM- well i feel really silly and out of place still being on this board. i am nowhere near anyone anymore. it's been a little hard the last few days just because if my cycle wasnt canceled i would know if i was BFP by now, and well as we all know i am very very far away from that point now. i took my last dose of provera today so man oh man i hope AF shows up this week!!!

teachermom woooohoooo on stims!!! i am so happy for you. you are so lucky to get to start without going through BCP. i have to admit i am jealous. i am soooo far behind everyone on here that i really wish i could start now, but my RE said because of my endo being on BCP first has much better results...but still!!!!! not fair!!! good luck with the first shots today!

Two Week Wait Sucks

Post by BoenBaby » Mon Oct 05, 2009 11:15 pm

New to the site but glad to have "wait buddies." I am 2dpt. We had 3 excellent 8 cell embies transferred at 3day and found out today that our last little guy to make it is now officially a snowbaby. This is our second round of IVF and we are so hopeful. Of course every little twinge and feeling of neasua makes me jump with excitement that this could be it. I so hope. We only got one egg out the first round and transferred at 3 day as a weak 3 cell. It obviously did not take. I have mild PCOS and my husband has MF issues. We're both 35.
I'm still currently on Crinone gel tubes one per night, 10mg of Byetta twice a day and 2000mg metformin daily. At least the worst is behind me. PLEASE GROW LITTLE EMBIES....GROW!!!!!!!! :lol:

Hey guys - it's been a long day. AFM, beta at 8am, then out to celebrate our 3rd anniversary with a visit to Mammoth Cave National Park (our tradition is going to a national park each year!). I confess to taking a couple of HPT's this weekend...but I can never trust those things after the chemical last time...so they finally called at 3:30 - BFP!!!!! Beta #1 is 567!!!! What do you think? Twins??? Possible triplets????? Anyway, I think I'm still in shock!!! I really can't believe that I am actually pregnant....eeek!

I'm sorry I don't have time to catch up on personals until tomorrow. Just a quick shout to Shelby - your second beta looks great! Thanks for the PMA and it looks like we will have that lunch date!!!

And Michele, my cycle buddy since I joined the boards - I'm so, so sorry to hear your news. My beta last cycle was 12, and I would have rather it just been 0 so I could have been done. You'll be in my prayers tonight - my clinic says those low numbers make it sometimes!

Stats - OMG!!!! Congratulations, Mommy to Multiples!!!! What a beta! I am so ready for lunch!!! Maybe we can plan on it after our u/s and can compare pics! This is great! :D . I hope you had a marvelous anniversary, too! WE both had incredible anniversary gifts!

BoenBaby - Welcome! Glad to hear about your ET and your snowbaby! I'm sending you 'snuggle dust'. Welcome to the 'sisterhood'!

Akowens - Got my fingers crossed for you tomorrow! Good Luck!

MLB - Hope you are out celebrating your BFP!

AFM
- I have not been able to get on this site for hours and it has driven me mad! I didn't know what to do with myself. I'm so pitiful! I go back on Monday for my 3rd beta and I hope they schedule me for my u/s next week. My beta should be over 5000 by then. I am (not so) secretly hoping for twins, but will be perfectly happy with a singleton. Have a good evening.
