Hello ladies,

Tomorrow will be hectic at work so I won't be able to post like I normally do. I didn't want to be silent for too long, especially with what is happening to rio and kiz.

Rio sweetie,
Boy, you got the rollercoaster ride pretty hard this time... (((((((((((HUGS)))))))))) You poor thing, I'm so sorry that it happened like that. We all prefer to see a big fat number coming with a BFP. What a screw up at the clinic though... :( I'm glad to see that you're keeping your PMA, after all your dr is keeping it too, but at the same time I understand how emotional it must be for you. Take it easy, one more day and you'll have more info to rely on. I hope your little sleepyhead in there will get all excited and grow a LOT for his mama's beta tomorrow! :D I'll come back to check for news hunny.

Kiz,
you're supposed to be PUPO now, where are you girlie? I miss you! and I'm worried!!! Thinking of you *hugs*

purple,
hehehehe let's hope you don't OD on the progesterone! Boy your breasts must hurt, you have all my sympathy! ;) How are you feeling otherwise? Have you told other people the good news?

To all the others, I'm sorry I don't have time for more personals. I give a big hug to our 2wwers, a big hug to all our stimmers (grow follies!!!!) and a big general hug for all those who are not in those two categories!

AFM I'm doing very well. I'm sorry I sounded so dramatic on Friday, I was hurting a lot. BUT the next day I was feeling much better and I see now that DH made the right call. We will definitely stop treatments, and I'm happy about that. I realized that I could have enjoyed my pregnancy and maternity leave WAY more than I did, and for that I'm grateful. Now, we can move on in our lives, we can stop making plans B-C-D just in case we have a treatment, a pregnancy, a miscarriage, a difficult pregnancy, a maternity leave, and so on. We were incredibly lucky to have our little boy, and I realized that now, all we have to do is ENJOY our time as a family and have as much fun, and love each other as much, as we can. With the money and time and emotions we'll save, we'll spend our time together doing fun things. We'll be able to afford private school, classes, trips, and so on. I know a little bit better what I want to do at work for the next few years (which is a HUGE relief) because I don't have to make complicated plans involving a maternity leave that could happen God knows when... or not. Knowing that we won't have to pay for another tmt, with our money, bodies, emotions, and time, is a HUGE relief too. I feel liberated.

Basically, everything is falling into place, and I like it!!! :D I am madly in love with my husband and my son and our two dogs right now, this is our family, and this is perfect. This is where I'm the most happy right now, and I'm thankful for it. Of course I still have to complete the grieving process of not having more children, but I think the worst part is behind me (Friday eve).

THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the support you have given me. It has made such a difference, knowing you were there and being so kind and gentle with me. THANK YOU!!!!! *HUGS*

Lots of love,

Sophie xxox

Hello ladies,
I've read a ton of these message boards while looking up info but when I came across one for fellow May cycle buddies I got really excited. A little history...my husband and I live in Italy and we originally went to a clinic in the states as we thought they were going to have to go in and do a surgery to retrieve sperm from my hubby but he has since started producing low amount but enough for IVF. So we transferred to a recommended Italian clinic right here in Naples and I just had my day 5 ET on Friday May 21st. My ER was pretty crazy as I had a LOT of swelling and was so uncomfortable I thought I was going to pop. Now I am just anxiously awaiting for next Monday (Memorial Day) for my Beta HCG. It is our first IVF cycle and it has definitely been an experience, especially having it in an Italian clinic. My husband and I both speak Italian but it is a lot to take in and many words that aren't commonly used in everyday conversation so that makes it kind of difficult plus they are decades behind on healthcare here and do more of a need to know basis than a knowledge is power type of thing so I get most of my info from searching google. Anyway, good luck to everyone in their cycle no matter where you are. I am so nervous and can't get it off my mind waiting for next Monday!!

bei - yay! your day is finally here. I am so happy for you. I will be saying lots of prayers that things go smoothly and you have lots of great eggs.

kitty and eshepard - good luck! I am sure it will go great!

PMA - I am glad that you are positive. I am sure your family will have a lot of fun adventures together. I actually am not having side effects from the progesterone, I just hate the ickiness of the suppositories.

pep - good luck tomorrow! I am sorry you are going crazy. If it makes you feel better than POAS in the morning, just remember it could be wrong. Unfortunately AF can feel the same as pregnancy -- not very useful I know. I have my fingers and toes crossed for you!


It is funny, I don't really feel pregnant I feel normal, but I am sure that will change soon enough.

Evening ladies :)
Just took my Ovidrel and my ER is Wednesday. I have taken the progesterone supp's before and like someone else said they are yuckie !!!!! I was wondering if anyone had used the Vivelle patches in addition to the supp's?

Good luck to those going in for US & BW tomorrow.

Good luck to those going to have their ER tomorrow hope that you all get nice eggs just begging to be fertilized :lol:

Rio-thinkning about you hope you are hanging in.

Sophie-Glad you are feeling an little better.

Bei-Good luck Wednesday it appears we are only a half hour off from our ER schedule! Glad to know that I have a 2WW partner :D If all goes well looks like my 1st BETA will be on our wedding anniversary.

Purple-Nice #'s :)

Best of luck and Baby Dust to all. Good night.

It's officially over. Got a 37 today so it was a chemical pregnancy, they test me again next week to make sure it goes to 0. I thought I was prepared for the news but I wasn't. I am pretty devastated. Thank you girls so much for your support and prayers, it really means a lot to me.
:cry: it will be ok.

We are probably going to try again, not sure if we are sticking with the same RE or trying something new. Problem is there is no one close by except for him. How much did you girls pay for an IVF cycle? Mine was 10,000 with ICSI, the blood and U/S out of pocket and not included in the $10,000.

Oh dang it, Rio. I am so so very sorry. Please know that I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. From what I hear 10,000 is on the lower side of the price range. Sorry I cant help more...(I feel guilty saying this), but my DH's insurance covers IVF. I am just sooo disappointed and heartbroken for you. Big Hugs. :cry:
