Katie- Just signed on to check on you and a couple other girls and I am so bummed to read you got cancelled again! But happy they cancelled for you and didn't waste a cycel, but still bummed you have to wait some more. Girl, you have been through so much and I was really hoping for a Christmas bfp for you! I will keep stalking you as you continue your journey. :D

Hazel- I am hoping for a bumper crop for you! ER is not that far away now, here's to hoping to find out soon and you get lots of eggies. :D

Hi everyone,

I don't really know anyone on this board, but I wanted to say hello and say, yes, indeed, I started on Thursday!

I am taking 450 gonal-f, 150 menopur, and two clomids per day. I am doing acupuncture as well.

I really hope this works (insurance covers only three cycles). Last time, I was on a lower dose without clomid. I only had seven eggs and two viable embryos. The doctor really wants more eggs, given my age.

Warm wishes to everyone!

syanna: i didn't have discharge during transfer. can u ask your RE?

justwannabamom: sorry for the disappointment! but like everyone said, you only need one to get pregnant! crossing fingers for you!

Franny: i guess you have found a good acupuncturist! u're really lucky! maybe this is your turn to get bfp! congrats! how's your basement! about the donor, the other couple wanted to think for one more week before they can make up their mind.

katie99 as always, thank you for doing the colorful chart and update for us! xoxo

hjw: i don't feel heavy when I had the cyst.

Happy Friday!! I am so happy this week is over with!

Katie99 - I am so happy for you and bummed at the same time. Like everyone else, I know that you wanted to be cancelled. I really do hope wonderful things for your next cycle. At least now you can spike your eggnog for the holidays :-).

Claud662- Glad your spotting has stopped. Do you still go in for your beta on Sunday? Please keep us posted!! Think BFP!!

Justwannabeamom - Congrats on 5 fert! It really is a great number although I know we always want more. I hear stories of all ferts making it to day 5 so you could still end up with some great blasts!! Remember, it only takes ONE!

HJW/Hazel - Glad to read that your follies are coming along and the trigger is soon. I am so excited for you!!

AFM - Well, one week from today I will know if I am BFP or BFN. I havent decided if I am going to POAS or not. I dont want to but I think most of us get pretty tempted to do it anyway.

We got the results back from our lab and out of the 9 fert, we had 2 put in and 4 frozen. We are so happy and grateful for the 4 frosties which is more than what we expected.

We decided to only tell 3 friends about this IVF process and 2/3 are out of town. There are consequences to not telling people - I feel in so many ways that I have become isolated to many of my friends and family. We've just decided that this process was something that we wanted to manage privately but it comes at a cost.

This board has been a great support network. I just get bummed when I see so many BFN's on this cycle. I know that the rates for BFP's go up with mutiple cycles so I am so happy to see many of the BFN's hopping back in next cycle. The next board is so happy to get the support of you guys. Your time is coming ladies!! If I get a BFN I'll be there too :-).

We need some more BFP's on this board so I hope the rest of the month brings lots of them for us!!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Crossed for you to get a happy follie count. Good luck to you! let me know when you get your ER dates, so I can update the list - grow em girl

Dodo - did you figure out facebook yet? I'm going to set it up this weekend.

TC-Whew! Now you're down to a 1ww! these become the longest days ever - hang in there, you're so close now!

Claudia -How are you feeling today? I'm so glad that your spotting has decreased - I'm still crossed for your beta!

Franny -Yippee for 8 crazy nights - I LOOOVE adam Sandler too
the "turkey song" it kills me, i think I know all the words!

Hazel -How are you feeling today? I cant wait to hear what your RE will say tomorrow. you poor girl, I can imagine how uncomfortable you must be! Good thing its for the absolute best reason - your BFP!
Good luck at your u/s & b/w - let us know how it goes - xoxo

AFM - I joined over on the Jan/ Feb thread, I'll be on both for a bit, but dont worry, guys I'm not going anywhere - hee hee you cant get rid of me that easy - I've got to see my girls get their BFPs! xoxo

katie99: I'm in facebook now. do you have it? i'd like to add you if you have!

tc4474: Glad to hear you've 4 snow babies! I hope my next donor can give us if not 4 but 2, we'll be contended! DH and I also didn't tell any of our families. I mentioned to 2 of my friends before but didn't tell them the transfer day nor the result. BTW, I only told my acupuncturist who is a trustable person and she knows how to treat me.

Hi everyone, sorry I haven’t posted in a while… was trying to stay away from all the ivf stuff … although I was lurking around the board to check on you…

Claudia – I hope your beta will still be ok

Katie – if you feel right about the cancelation then it was the right thing

Cheeky and Supergenius – so sorry about your news after the initial excitement…

Justwannabamom – I don’t know girl… I think the stats are on your side this time… look at this board! I think from now on all we will have are BFP’s to bring the board to the average success rates of IVF :-)

All stimming ladies and in 2WW – it has to be positive for you!

AFM – AF showed on Monday and I have been bleeding since then… hope it will stop soon… on Monday I have my “complimentary after BFN” appointment with RE and will know when we can do FET… for now I will try to focus on xmas tree, xmas dinner and our vacation for new years… I am not sure if I will join Jan Feb board - probably… sometimes I think it brings additional pressure but then there is so much support out here… I hope I was able to support you a little too… LOVELY LADIES I WISH YOU ALL HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND THAT YOU WILL GET WHAT YOU WANT THE MOST IN 2010! THANK YOU FOR BEING THERE FOR ME!

Hi ladies, I had my day 12 stims u/s and b/w today. The final tally is 10 follicles, ranging from two at 25mm, one at 16mm, and the majority somewhere in the middle around 18-19mm. I got 6 eggs when I did my first fresh cycle in April so I'm hoping and praying for 8 or so mature eggs, and any more will be a bonus. The cyst is still there, it looked about the same size as Thursday (30x40mm) but it's squashing into the follies on that side and out of shape as a result so it's difficult to tell and they didn't bother trying to measure it.

The clinic have just called with final instructions now that my b/w came back (they don't ever tell me the results, btw, so I don't know any of my levels). I guess I'm already where they want me to be, or slightly over, as they want me to reduce my last dose of Gonal-F tonight from 225iu to 150iu. I will then trigger tomorrow night (or, more precisely, 1.00am Monday morning, it's going to be a late night), with ER on Tuesday 15th @ 12.30pm UK time. It's all starting to feel very very real now - eeek!
