Hey girls, I was gone for 2 days and there is a lot of catching up...I hope everyone is doing good. Sancap and Katie thanks for cheering for my follies. :D I have 12 today, and they increased the dose and I go back tomorrow. The doctor estimated the retrieval for the weekend and I can't wait, I feel so bloated. Now I'm going back to read.

stats CONGRATS to you!!! What an awesome beta!!! :)

Michele You are in my thoughts and prayers.

shelby thanks so much for taking care of everyone's progress! It's so nice to see where everyone is.

AFM- stimming away. B/w and u/s tomorrow morning to make sure my little follies are growing growing growing. More later...................

Turtle - I do go to the FCNE in reading. They seem to be good. But sometimes I just feel that im in the dark...they're not really telling me whats going on except on what shots to take. Maybe when I get to the next stage...

Shelbyrn - ahahah...try to remember you previous dreams... did it had anything to do with jewelry? A few years ago, I dreamt about all these jewelries..rings, bracelets, was put on me or given to me, but I didnt want it, so I gave it all back! (should have taken it then, probably would of had many kids by now!) But this time, I took them 2 gold necklace..shoot...aint giving those away hehehe.

Sangria - Please don't give up, Hon. The nurse @ my clinic says she has gotten + betas with women having a -HPT @ home the same morning. I know it may be hard, but please keep the PMA!

Syanna - I don't reckon I've dreamed of jewelry. If I have I don't remember. I'll go to bed thinking of a long of bling-bling this evening though!!!

michaelajt73 good to hear your line is staying strong! Must be very exciting!!!

statsgoddess- INSANE beta number!!!! Congrats mama to multiples!!

BoenBaby- Welcome! I am 4dp5dt (wow, I'm finally getting the hang of this) and had 2 A+ embies transferred and trying to wait patiently for my beta Oct. 12th. Awesome that you have a snowbaby too! My RE hasn't called me back yet to let us know how many they could freeze, I'm pretty sure they got one and they were hoping to get another within the coming days. Are you going to POAS or do you think you can hold out? I'm trying to hold out until at least Sat. or Sunday, I just don't want to see another negative...eeeek. When is your beta scheduled for?

kiwi- AWESOME beta numbers :D :D I'll bet on multiples too!!

katie99- Where are ya today crazy girl? How are you feeling? Pretty much all day yesterday I had little pinching feelings and then some cramping last night but who knows what it all could be?? You know what though?? I think I actually miss bed rest lol. I went home last night from work, made dinner, cleaned up, then got into bed and started reading again, it was actually very nice:) I even dozed off for a few minutes (with Remy next to me of course) lol. Hope your embies are implanting nicely![/b]

Hi girls -

I hope that you all are having a good day so far! I dont have anything new going on, just trying to survive the 2ww or shoot myself, whichever comes first! :lol:

shelby -sending you more doubling dust!

stats -CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! x2? :D :D or 3? :D :D :D

sancap -I'm wondering if your P4 (progesterone levels) were high? is that why you're only on 1 supp per day? I thought the "rule" was 3 supp per day or 1 supp + shot? Anyway, how are you feeling, hon?

franny -You are a part of this thread, hon. Please dont feel funny!
You just had a delay is all! I hope you stay with us!

karen -GL with your ER tom!!

kiwi -YIIPPPEEEE!!! I dont know how many smileys to put - but totally more than 1!! :D :D :D

teachermom / jaydntd -Keep growing those follies, ladies! best luck for your u/s too!!

sancap -We were typing at the same time! I feel pretty good, that pulling, crampy thing has stopped, though. So of course now I kind of wish it would start up again! Yes, its true, I've lost it!! I hear ya, girl. Back to life as usual, except it seems that my mind has been hijacked by "did it work this time?" "or Good Lord, i dont want to have to go through this again!" I go back & forth - ALL DAY! Now I get why people wish you patience dust during this 2ww! feels like mine flew out the window! xoxo

stats holy cow mama!!!! amazing!! :D :D :D :D :D
i cant wait to see what the next beta's will be!!! i love mammoth cave! me and DH went there a few years ago. its so beautiful and crazy how big it is! there is a 4 part special on PBS right now all about the history of the national parks, and it makes me want to make it to every one of them!

syanna who's your doctor? thats so cool we go to the same place! i havent made it down to the reading office yet...but thats where i will go for the ER/ET. during my first cycle at first they would just call with my new instructions, and at first i was ok with it, but then after reading these boards i got more curious as to what was happening so from then on when the nurses would call i asked alot of questions and they were very nice at answering things for me. when i had to cancel that cycle i went back to see my re (dr. vitiello who is AWESOME) and i told her that i kinda felt in the dark about what was going on. she was very understanding and told me never to feel strange to ask questions and if i wanted i could call and talk right to her for my next cycle. she said they try to keep things simple by just giving the next step so that people dont stress about every single number. i totally understand that....they are the doctors...i believe they are doing everything they can to allow us to be successful without the stress. but sometimes NOT knowing is just as stressful. my advice to you is if you ever have any questions or want to know more info call your dr.'s care team and ask. i called so many times last cycle i'm sure they were all sick of me, but i dont care....thats what i'm paying for! i also call dr. vitiello's office here in NH all the time because i know i can get my dr. on the phone right away that way. i am routing for you!!!!! :D

akowens i am on pins and needles!!!!

katie, shelby and teachermom thank you all for not giving up on me...there is a new thread for NOV/DEC and i was considering going there because i felt out of place here, but i just cant leave you beautiful ladies. all of your support means the WORLD to me!! :D

Hey ladies. You guys won't believe the last 16 hours. So after my nurse calls wtih the good news of moving forward to ER on Wed, my doctor calls me an hour later and says he wants to retrieve but freeze any embies that develop b/c my progesterone is high at 1.9. So, I"m like...ummm....ok. Whatever you think. Apparently, the uterine lining can develop toooo much and make implantation difficult (they rely on progesterone ready for this as well as visual). I'm like...ummmm...ok, I thought thick and fluffy was good, but ok. So we hang up and like 30 minutes later he calls back and says, you know, the more I think about it and review the pics of your ovaries I think we need to cancel. The size of each follicle looks good but their shape is worrying me. I'm like, ok, this is weird. Are you even paying attention to me when I'm there. Then I remember he has been OUT for a week and I've been rotated between 4 different doctors in the practice when I have my ultrasounds this past week (my doctor had arm surgery). He asked me to still do the trigger so that I ovulate and wants me to come in for one last ultrasound/bloodwork before he cancels me for sure. So I get there this AM and he's like, wow...things look great. And I'm like, in reference to what????? :?: And he says, your ovaries look great...size and shape. :shock: I take back what I said last night about your follicles. And your lining looks great too even though your progesterone is high. I'm literally speechless....half happy...half pissed b/c I feel like this is bordering on schizo behavior. So I'm getting a bit concerned with all this back and forth...I'm either ready or I'm not. You do this enough to know. I can't take this back and forth. I feel unsettled about what is really going on with my body and unsure you guys know what you are doing. So he says...things look great. I want to wait for your blood work and I'll call you later today. But right now, I am inclined to move forward. So here I sit...waiting for a call. Unfricking believable. I'm so confused...and don't want to get my hopes up again. Has anyone ever had this happen? :?
