tohavefun oh sweetie my heart is breaking for you! i am so so sorry. what crap!! there are no words...i am thinking of you and dh! :cry:

supergenius hahaha thats awesome!! you have superembies haha i just might start calling you that now!! that is amazing! i am so happy for you sister!! :D :D

karen hang in there hun...its not over till the beta....and hopefully you'll have to wait 9 months for that wine!!

afm like i said earlier i had b/w this morning and they usually call between 12:30-1:30...soooo here i sat pacing all day (i never did this the first cycle..its from being canceled out of the blue with no warning that has made me a ball of nerves) and they JUST called....really??? really??? they are only open until 430.....geeeee thanks for that!! so i kept going back and forth in my head..."its bad news..they are waiting for the doctor to talk to me but shes busy and it will be later in the day" and "dont be silly...they are just taking their time because its fine and no big deal so they dont need to rush"
hahaha i called DH and made him bring me home a frosty from wendys cause i needed to be soothed! (there goes the diet!!)
well i guess i should just tell yall what they said....i'm just staying on the same routine as before...10 units of lupron microdose am and pm and 225 units of gonal-f am and pm, and then i'm back on saturday morning for bw+us.
i wanted to ask about how my e2 levels looked, but by the time they called i couldnt think to ask any questions....grrrrrr i'm so mad at myself for that! i am taking it as a good sign that my doses are staying the same because last time they kept raising my gonal-f and lowering my lupron so i knew i wasnt responding too well....with them keeping it the same that seems like its a good thing right??? i dont know..i think i have things figured out and then i really have no idea!
as for the roof...thank you everyone for thinking of me...of course i have to have this stuff going on during my stims haha it couldnt have happened when i was waiting 40 freakin days for AF to show up last time or the 25 days i was sittin around on BCP's waiting....thats not my style haha
well they are still pounding on my head as we speak (that has NOT helped with the waiting today) they will be done tomorrow, and it looks really good...i'm just going to ignore my credit card bill until after the new year haha..denial is a great place to be.
as for the chimney i had another guy come out and he said they just needed to put some support brackets from the chimney into the side of the house and it will be fine!! wooohooo so my bill went from 2000 to 200 over night!! yay!!
ok so now that i'm calm i'm gonna go buy myself a lobster and hope its the last one i'll be able to eat for 9 months!! (why cant we have lobster when we are pregnant?? i dont remember, but it has something to do with shellfish right??" damnit) but soooo worth it!! haha
much love and baby dust to you all!!!
:D

Hi ladies! It's only been 3 days of Lupron...r u serious??! I'm light headed and crampy..seems like she's about to come soon. Good, so I can hurry up and start my stims!

Katie, I gave DH the silent treatment, so when we got home yesterday...tell me he did not wash the dishes..hahahah. I should ignore him more often, maybe the bathroom floor will be scrubbed.

ToHaveFun, sorry to hear your news. I feel you. But still have hope. The time will come.

Franny, I know how stressful it is being a homeowner. Shoot, my tenant only has to pay $65 a month...and she's always late! Sometimes she doesnt even pay me until the next month. (She's my mother!) So when she doesnt have money to pay, I'm her daughter, but when she wants things in the house, I'm her landlord and she becomes a true tenant, complaining about needing this, needing that, this dont work, that dont function, i want a new bathroom, i want new tiles, etc...WTH lady! You needs to calm down!

Hi all,

My Beta comes back is BFN as expected. We kind of expecting that already. So I stop all the progestron today and hoping AF comes soon that I can go back to my normal cycle.

We probably will try again in Jan/Feb and will consult with my RE again. Since she did not find out what went wrong this time, we need to seriously consider staying with her or go to other clinic.

Thx

10bear
So so sorry for your results. Very glad to know you will be able to try again. That is great! PMA! PMA! It is still very hard to get a BFN after all we go through so good for you to be so positive! If this time doesn't work for me my husband absolutely refuses to give it a third try so best of luck to us all as it gets so emotionally and financially straining!

syanna you can tell your mom that i will switch places with her, and with the money i save i can redo that whole house!! i'm sending AF your way!!

10bear i am so sorry hun!! that sucks! :( please know that you are in my thoughts....

2010 yay for ER on friday!! woooohoooo :D :D i'm so happy for you! i already feel crazy on all these stims and cant wait to get to my ER...wherever that will be....

claud we mustve been posting at the same time last time cause i didnt see your post until now....WOOOOHOOOO for stims!! grow follies grow!!! i also got AF the first day of stims this cycle...oh joy!! now i'm on day 4 of AF and stims and i cant tell which one i'm feeling crampy/bloated from....not fun! but its exciting to start! haha look at what we get happy about doing to ourselves...totally worth it!!! :)

cheeky i agree with claud that antibiotics are ok to use. i would double check with your RE and not just your normal dr. but i think it would be much worse to have the infection getting worse then taking the antibiotics. a few of my friends and my SIL were all on antibiotics while they were pregnant for one thing or another...i know this is really early for you and you are more concerned about the implantation part, but if RE says ok i think your safe!! good luck and feel better PUPO girl!!!

afm...i know its only been like 2 hours so theres not much of an update, but i just wanted to put out there that the bottom of my feet are sweaty/clamy feeling and its wicked gross!! also i feel a little bloated/twinges and was wondering if 4 days of stims is too early to start to feel follies growing? last cycle i felt nothing, and it was a bad thing...now it might be AF/ crazy meds/ stress...IDK...the feet sweat is super gross though!

OK its now 6:40 -where is UPS w/ my meds? I've been waiting all day for them! I'm starting to get annoyed. Usually I get fed ex who always shows up by noon. What a waste of a day. I'll update the list tom. afternoon, hopefully w/ some happy news!

cheeky -I'm pretty sure that you're ok with certain antobiotics. Start drinking lots of cranberry juice too. I hope you shake it off fast, those UTIs are really annoying! feel better! -xoxo

Supergenius -wow 13 fert! ET on sun? I'm betting a 5 dt cause they'll have lots to choose from!

jenice -Pucker up! You should have said you'll kiss the horses nose!

claud -yay for stims! yay for AF? No yay for a crampy week :wink: grow em girl

Franny -he he superembies - its true once you get cancelled you're always afraid of it happening again. Remember when Ghost said that you could cycle the same woman 3 times on the same protocol & get 3 totally different cycles & results? And besides to be feeling those twinges on only day 4? thats fantastic! just wait a few more days til you feel like a popcorn maker! :lol: You got me on the sweaty foot thing though, thats a new one on me. I think shellfish is a no no due to risk of high mercury levels. i know that sushi is a no no due to risk of bacteria. Go get pizza :lol:

Syanna -Girl, you're killing me, i burst out laughing at your post & shot sprite out of my nose. OW!, it burns! late on rent just means free babysitting, doesnt it? :wink: oh, so thats how you get men to clean...
Now what makes them stop making messes in the first place?
When are you starting stims? Your DH is gonna walk lightly around you during stims! Mine mysteriously started working loads of OT last cycle
almost as if he was doing that on purpose, i asked him about it and he asked me if it was far enough into stims that he should just agree with everything I say yet! :lol:

Where are my meds? its 7:00 now - really??

Had m ET today.

So only 3 out of 6 embis were doing ok.

for a day 3 report:

the best one was an 1.) 8 cell grade 2 2.) 5 cell grade 2.. (they had looked at early in the am and right before they trans the 5 cell JUMPED TO 7 CELLS with in a few hours!! still a grade 2) This is the time i broke into tears of happyness!

and the last embie was a 4 cell but a perfect grade 1.


so the others 3 they didnt feel that they would do well or make it to day 5. but they were gonna let them attempt to grow out to day 5 and freeze any that would make it. But they were not hopefull for the other 3


SO, after long and hard decisions, they sugested we trans the 8 cell grade 2, 7 cell grade 2 and the 4 cell grade 1

grade 1 is their best rating, and 2 grade being the 2nd best and so on!

So i was a bit worry about 3 (and im only 33 years old), but since i didnt really have any 8 cell grade 1 rock starts, they figured give the 3 best embies a chance. They figured they had the best chance IN me than in the lab in the freezer!

Ok so that's my story! I got 3 transfered and lets hope one STICKS!!

Ok thanks for your support to you all!

many hugs!

10bear and to have fun I am so sorry about your BFN, When i lost 7 of my babies each time, I laid in a dark room with my dh and cried my eyes out, I cried so hard my throat hurt, but it helped a lot. It helped a whole lot. I hope everything goes well with both of you and your dh.
If you feel in your heart your not done try another time, we all will be here to cheer you on.

Karenthescorpio miracles have happened so i am keeping everything crossed for you hopefully a late implanter

oh turtle gosh you have so much goings on in your life haven't you my dear damn roof people probably was their fault to begin with didn't check it out properly we'll i hope everything is fixed before the snow settles in so you can get back to the real business of getting preggo's. :wink:

katie yeah it really does suck thinking of the extra pressure of wondering if this is it with your own eggs it's a big stress on it's own. It really does freak me out wondering the next step anyway my friend thats all going to be a distant memory we just have to believe we are going to get what we want most

AFM your never going to believe this 1 day into my 2ww i started having busting peeing sensations like you got to go and u can't we'll went to the doc and it's a bladder infection crap crap crap I have to take anti biotics to clear it. I don't want to take them cause it might hurt implantation but at the same time urinary infections not good either. does anyone know if this can hurt my chances gosh just so bummed at the moment. If it's not one damn thing after another maybe i'll ask ghost. my doc said the anti biotic is not harmful but not 100 percent sure thanks for that doc.
what a time to get that ok ladies enough ranting from me

Heaps of pma to you all and know that i'm thinking of you guys keep up the faith everything does happen for a reason :D

hi i too got an UTI after my ER, so i had my ET today and they gave me meds for my UTI... they said stay hydratated and drink cranberry juice and take my meds.

they said it was fine to take!!
