...Good Luck tomorrow!!! Sooo exciting! I hope you are getting your rest right now and have a terrific outcome tomorrow morning. Let us know how everything went...when you are up to it tomorrow night. Your story about Sydney...made me cry.
Such a sweet story. I think you should name your first future little girl Sydney. lol
My acupuncture doctor also follows the German protocol. I'll have to get the title of his book and send you the link...sounds like something that you might like. He also has a radio show on Sundays and has been on talk shows. He's pretty cool and I never even knew till recently that he was just down the street from me...and here I was driving an hour to an acupuncturist 2 yrs ago. lol Thanks so much for the offer...I sent you a PM. And, hey like I said...no worries...you have enough on your plate tomorrow morning than to worry about little ol' me. Good Luck!!!
...Gosh girl, I am just sooo sorry. That really sucks. I hope AF arrives quickly so that you can jump right back into the game again. Big Hugs.
...Still dancing here for you! Hope the ugly witch arrives soon.
...As of right now you are pregnant!!! Congrats! So try not to worry about the numbers right now. It's all about the rise in numbers. They actually dont say double every other day...they only want to see a 66% increase...and even then...I have seen increases of less than 66% still make it to a healthy baby. I honestly think the 2ww has nothing on the beta waits. It just plain stinks. Big Hugs and PMA.
...Scary, but soo exciting that things are moving right along with a new RE. You will be pregnant in no time. Yayy!
...Good Luck on those beta numbers today...let us know!
...Love your attitude. WTG on the PMA! Sending lots of prayers for a BFP on Wednesday.
...11 is awesome!! WTG! Get some rest now! Looking forward to your fertilization report.
...Good Luck with your new diet, tea, and everything. Sounds very promising and exciting. I need to watch my fertility diet too...as far as cheese, potatoes, sugars, carbs...starting now...as I've heard great things about it.
...I'm so sorry to hear that it is the end of the road for you. Best wishes!
...Wow! Sounds like you have alot going on in there! Sooo awesome! Good Luck on Wednesday! Keep us posted.
...Soo good to hear from you. PMA girl!!! Good Luck today and tomorrow! Sending you lots of hugs and prayers! PMA!!!
...How did everything go today? Hope to hear your update soon. Get some rest though.
...Go to photobucket and shrink a picture first...then copy and paste the img code to your signature line. Let me know if you need more info. Everything looks good so far for you...it is early still, right? When did you start the meds again? If you want to get an acupuncturist...I'd do before and after the transfer...on the same day. Look for one that specializes in fertility...your clinic may even have a suggestion for you...and just follow their recommendations. I always have pineapple slushies...and it has always worked...so sticking with it this time too...and they're sooo yummy. But, really who knows if it really helps...it is possibly just a myth. lol
...That is just nuts! I am so very sorry that they are putting you through all of that. It's really unbelievable and the system needs to change. Big Hugs to you.
...Good Luck on your SnS tomorrow. I dont go back till Wednesday...and we are expecting trigger then. I am doing acupuncture 2xs on the day of transfer for sure...and then maybe 4-5 days later...when implantation is expected to happen. My doc really agrees with the German protocol of doing it just before and right after transfer, as Lou talked about. You're right...my doc is a very infamous and intelligent doctor and I do trust him and his opinion...so I need to just quit worrying about the numbers and relax a bit. Really, I am just more interested in the process more than anything though. Funny that you should mention that you dont care if they only get 6 eggs...because that is exactly what I have been saying, but for a bit of a different reason. I had a 50% ratio going from 12 retrieved to 6 good ones to put back in on transfer day and to freeze in Jan '08. We put back 3 with Zach and got 1...froze the other 3...and then put those 3 back in last April and 1 took even though I miscarried. So if I get 6 eggs retrieved ...I am hoping that we will get 3 good ones and put them all back again...with nothing left to freeze. I will even be happy with 4 good ones to put back. I just dont want any to freeze again. Why? Cause I have issues...with feeling like my babies are frozen in time. I only want 2-3 kids (if twins)...due to finances and my age...so...I really dont want to donate them to science, leave them suspended forever, and it would just kill me to give them up for adoption...knowing that my children are out there. I would search every face on the planet ...trying to find them again. None of that really hit home or made sense to me...when going through IVF the first time...till we had Zach ...and saw for ourselves what these embryos (babies) turn into. They are more than embryos to us now. Bill feels the same way. It is difficult to explain, really. So really my disappointment in my numbers has more to do with me realizing that my ovaries are getting old, that I am getting old, that it may be too late for me to get good quality embryos at this point, and that menopause is just around the corner...than it does with trying to get lots of embryos for freezing....if that makes any sense...and dont make me sound crazy. lol
...Cant wait to see pics of the new house, it sounds wonderful. I hope and pray yours sells quickly. I love that you are soo proactive and are on the ball with getting things done. Goo you! Sorry that DH made you feel crummy about it not being him. Men. lol
...SnS went okay today. Looks like 6 are in the running and 2 more lagging behind. Not great news...but really it is all about the quality for me at this point, as I was just saying to Lauren. I now have an E2 level of 878 (started out as 5 on baseline day). My lining is 13mm...which is perfect. I did have to go pick up more follistim...stupid nurse just cost me another copay...cause she didnt calculate enough for me in the first place. Thank God the fertility pharmacy is just down the street from the clinic. I go back on Wednesday for another SnS and will most likely trigger Wed night...maybe Thursday. I will know more after my E2 levels come in Wed afternoon.
I have follies on both sides of:
19x15 (they average this to actually be a 17 and so on for all of them)
another less than 10
Cardiologist appt went just fine...I knew it was nothing. Blood pressure was terrific, too.
