Hi All,
Boy, lots going on with everyone this week. I had to take notes to keep up with all the latest news. Thanks again for all you well wishes. You're doing wonders to keep my spirits up. Had lunch with the ladies. Got lots of good teacher gossip. Just entertaining for me because I'm a florist. Great stories though.

Sonya- I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed for you.

Tiger-Thanks for the advice. I'm trying to stay positive. The words "it's because of your age" keep ringing in my ears. How did you choose your donor? Not sure how that works.I'm also not sure how they determine the maximum donor age for eggs. That's very generous of you to offer up your eggs for those who are egg challenged. Good luck to you both. Looking forward to hearing about the "twins". :wink:

Annashope- So sorry about the cancer. You're lucky to have a great Dr. I'm keeping everything crossed for you. They keep telling me it only takes one.

Ryann- Congrats on hubby's new job. Have a great trip. Relax and Enjoy!!! :)

Moore- Thanks so much for the wishes and advice. Big hugs to you too! Have a great time in Florida. :)

Amanda- Follie dancing for you!!!

Lou- My accupuncture was also on top of my head and in my ears. The last time she had a pulsing one in my belly. :roll: Whatever works.

Franny- 2 eggs...double happy for you...Whoohoo!!! :) :)

Didi- Congrats on the progress!!

Karin- Thanks! Unfortunately I'm not as strong as you think. I was a big mess till I spoke to my RE. We were grateful to hear his cautious optimism.

I know I missed a few but it's getting late.

Love, Hugs and Baby Dust to All,
Chili

Wow...it looks like I missed alot while I was on vacation! I will be able to sit down and read to catch up after I unpack the car and get laundry going. We just returned home from a 12 hour drive and I am exhausted. I am glad that hy DH and I took the opportunity to relax at the cabin for the last week before all of the shots and waiting begins. We had beautiful weather in Minnesota and I actually got some color from the sun. The rest of my family will return tomorrow, but we had to return early so my husband could return to work. I hope to return to the cabin next summer with a little one of my own...

While we were away I did receive a phone call from the pharmacy. My box of meds is set to arrive on Tuesday then we go on Wednesday to learn about injections and sign consent. I also have written down that we will be doing a sounding at this appointment, but I cannot remember now what the means. Any ideas???

I told my DH when I started bcp on Saturday that it is all starting to feel real now. I'm sure once all the meds arrive I'll start to get anxious.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Will catch up soon.

Franny - congrats on doubling your number at your ER! Hoping for a good fert. report for you!

Amanda - glad you got your pic to load (I'm loving everyone's pictures - so nice to put faces with names!) Good luck tomorrow with your ER!

Sunshine - great 2nd beta! I probably missed it as I caught up on posts, but when is your u/s scheduled for?

Didi - great fert report! Hope your ET goes well this weekend!

Annpage - sending positive vibes for your beta tomorrow!

Sonya - glad you're feeling more preggo symptoms now and this time next week, we'll all be waiting to hear from you on your u/s results.

Annashope - wow, you've been through a lot the last few years! I'm so glad you had a good doctor to help you! Question for you - will you have to do anything special once you are pregnant since you do not have much cervix left? I know after having 2 LEEPS and a Cone biopsy my OB/GYN said there is a good chance I'll need bedrest/cerclage since I have so little cervix left. So just curious as to if they had some kind of similar plan for when you are pregnant.

Wishing good luck to you everyone starting their injectables, BCPs, or just waiting, waiting, waiting to get to the next step!

AFM, still waiting for the 19th to come for our next consult. There is a chance we may have to push our appointment out if all of my b/w isn't back yet. Apparently some of the tests they ran can take a few weeks to come back so they told me to call back again this a.m. and Monday a.m. to check and if they still aren't back by Monday morning, we'll reschedule the appointment. Hoping we don't have to reschedule, but then again I wouldn't want to do the consult without having all of the results back. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Klinger You are absolutely correct about needing a cerclage after I had my LEEP my cervix was already shorter and so with the radical tregelectomy where they removed another big portion the doctor put in an abdominal cerclage. I currently have an abdominal cerclage which is the only reason I am told this is possible. Even with the cerclage I may need early bed rest but I know in the end it will all be worth it when we bring our little miracle home.

Annpage oh no! Maybe it is not a period, I mean people get cramping and bleeding with pregnancy too. I will be praying for you. Please stay positive!! Hugs and baby dust :)


AFM Finally got the nerve to take a digital one today and hubby and I burst into happy tears when we saw the words PREGNANT!!!!! I still can't believe it. I can't wait for the beta tomorrow.

Franny: I am so happy for you!!! Enjoy your day. I will be thinking of you tomorrow morning.


AFM: They finally called!!! :evil: So much for first thing in the morning! I was a bit freaked at first because this was a different nurse and she started with the worse ones first (and the nurse yesterday started with the best).

But good news. 2 at 4 cell "good", 2 at 6 cell "good", 5 at 8 cell: 2 "excellent", 2 "excellent-good", 1 "good." I am waiting till Sunday (day 5). I asked about tomorrow because I was told they only do d3 or d5 and she said that they always let them rest on d4.
