I see you figured it out! Yayy! I think everyone should put a picture up now, lol. Such a cute couple! And, yes...you are rocking the list! I love it!
Awww...look at how adorable you both are! Yes, it does get easier keeping up with everyone, once you get to know everyone. I also think it helps alot to use our first names and to see pics. We started this in my April group and it really helped alot. Midwest Fertility Centers sounds really familiar to me.
Good Luck today!!! Hoping and praying for good news today! Give us a quick update, when you are feeling better from ER, but get some rest first! Cant wait to hear how it all went.
Great story of hope...I have seen so many miracles...and hearing stories like these keep me optimistic. I am worried now that I am 42. My FSH wasnt too bad 3-3.5 years ago (when last tested) and we did get 12 follies 2.5 yrs ago with 6 good ones to work with and 1 resulting in a baby...but I wonder how much things have changed now that I am 42. Where did the years go? I am pretty sure that I have entered early menopause now with all the symptoms that I am getting....so I guess we will see soon.
Hi and Welcome! Your almost there...sooo exciting! Keep us posted on everything. My first IVF worked after 3 failed IUI's. My FET also worked even though I miscarried. So 2 for 2 and I am older, too. I count myself as very lucky as we have a multitude of problems, yet nothing major to really pinpoint, just alot of little thing that add up to 1 big problem for us. We had a 1% chance on our own. Here is a list to put in your favorites. SnS is not on there...it is Stick and Spin for bloodwork and ultrasound. Ask if you dont know what something is...there are lots of girls who dont know and feel dumb asking...dont feel dumb. HTH. http://www.fertilityplus.org/faq/acronyms.html
What a rough weekend...now losing power? Geesh! I would have been panicked with the meds, too. I was spoiled too...my first RE was 8-10 minutes away...and now 45 mins. lol I loved being sooo close. We changed due to insurance. At least where my RE is now...they have some great outlet stores there to check out. lol
I hope your week is terrific to make up for such a rough weekend...the last thing any of us need is any extra stress in our lives. I wonder the same thing as you...is the animals, chemicals? What is going on with all this infertility and other problems with everyone these days? I just read that if your husbands mother drank during pregnancy (some may not have known they were pregnant at the time) that there is a good chance of male infertility. Cant remember where I read that now...but does make you wonder if there is something to it. My DH has morphology issues...and his mom was 40 and had some drinks early on...not knowing she was pregnant (she thought she was done years earlier). I am betting that those 13 follies will catch up...hoping and praying anyways! Keep the faith! Good Luck tomorrow...and keep us posted!
I also felt implantation...though for me it was a burrowing feeling. lol I know that most people dont feel it ...so if anyone here does not feel it...dont get discouraged...very few women do feel it. Very few. Heck, it may have even been just in my mind, ya know? lol I think you should poas on Monday the 19th, too. Anything earlier, would likely be too early. They're doing your beta earlier than most docs do them. Mine isnt till 14dp3dt so 17dpo...yours is only 12/13dpo. Yes, visual thinking is an awesome thing to do in all of this. I do it, too. Glad to hear that your friend is okay...your story had me on an emotional rollercoaster. lol Have fun camping this weekend.
Yayy for getting started today! How did everything go?
I understand about the mood swings...and I'm only on bc pills right now. I think the stress of everything and him working overtime making me feel like a single mom...has me a bit on edge right now. So I ended up apologizing last night for just being plain mean the last few days. He is so sweet and acts like I havent when he knows that I have been. lol Glad the shots are going well for you. How old is your DD? 3 weeks at camp...sounds wonderful for her! Yay for being done with bc pills today. I have 8 more days. Sounds like we are about 8 days apart in our schedule.
Safe travels tonight...hope you get home earlier than last week. Yay for family coming and making the week go by fast. Keep us posted when you can on everything and have a great week.
Good Luck today!!! Looking forward to hearing the results!!! Hoping and praying for a BFP for you! Glad to hear that you have the day off...enjoy it! Lots of prayers going out to you today! Keep us posted.
You are a stronger woman than I, lol. It is way too early for symptoms. I never even got any...no morning sickness, nothing, with Zach. Unless you count the few seconds on 2 different occasions of nausea. I was very lucky...but at the time it made me sooo nervous, too. Most people dont feel real symptoms till closer to 5 or 6 weeks from what I hear. So no worries!
Are you using the link with [img] around it and putting it in your signature line...and not avatar line? Dont use the avatar thing...it doesnt work.
Just curious...when did everyone give up coffee and wine/drinks? My first IVF I gave it up really early. This time...I am on bcp and still enjoying my morning coffee and am planning on giving up wine and coffee on July 19th after an evening out to our local winery for a picnic and music with friends. Dont get me wrong...I only have drinks or wine 2-3 times a month on average...but not sure if I should skip the winery or just skip drinking on the 19th now. I start stims on the 23/24th. I've heard people say before bcp's, during bcp's, and before stims. What did you do? What did your doc recommend?
