Margi - I think it's ridiculous that they make you wait! I would freak!!!

Lou - 10 eggs is awesome! My DH hurt his back so it's definitely been over 3 days since any activity. I bet his sample is crap too and we will need icsi!

Ester - I am doing AF dance for you too!!

Tiger - my bad experience was that the FET worked and I finally got a line on my HPT! Then I got a low beta that kept rising but stopped doubling. I never miscarried so I had to have a D&C. Lol now I am against the frozen! Good luck with your IUI!!

Tammy - I have to go back tomorrow and they said I will most likely trigger tomorrow for ER on Friday. This is the longest I have ever stimmed!! Today is the 14th night of shots! Funny that Friday is 2 weeks before my cruise so I will probably get the beta result right before the ship sails. I will either be vary drunk that night or very excited lol!!!

tammy- i'm cracking up right now!!! :lol: get this...i'm so slow w/ jokes...that i had to re-read what you wrote several times in order to get the joke. i'm such a dork....but you're too funny...that made my day!

margi- i second tammy's suggestion...CALL!

lou- yay for 10!!! your pma should be up there since that is the most you've ever had...that is a great sign! rest up & can't wait to hear your fert report tomorrow & when you'll be doing your et.

sher- great news! so happy for you!

lauren1171- thanks for the af dance! good to hear that you'll most likely be triggering tomorrow. where are you going on your cruise? will they do your beta earlier if it falls after you leave for your cruise? i hope you're the only sober one on the cruise & the happiest one there!!!

w/ so many of you wonderful ladies cheering me on & doing the af dance, you'd think she'd be here by now...ugh! but good things come to those who wait :-)

Lauren1171...Perfect timing for your trip. Sorry...but you wont be drinking this trip. lol :wink: I think it is pretty awesome that we will likely be having ER and ET the same days. Makes me feel not so alone in all of this. Any numbers to share from your SnS today? lol :wink:

Margi...I just read on the June cycle group that you did just call and they still dont have your results?! Ridiculous! Did you have your blood work done at your RE's office or somewhere else...if somewhere else...call them too. It's 3:35...I'd also be calling your RE back. This just makes me mad.

I posted a whole essay here and it's gone? UGH!!!

I'll try to write again, I guess. Totally lame.

Tammy - thanks :) Yesterday's numbers were from Day 8. Yeah, I'm assuming I've still got a ways, but I'll be right on your tail!! Also "outcome" - hysterical.

Sher - WOOHOO!!! Preggers!

Lauren - 17?! Look at you, fertility goddess. That's nuts. A close friend of mine got pregnant on her first FET and attributes it to not having to do all the drugs and deal with all the stress. She had beautiful twins now. I think this round will work for you though.

Fitzjr - holy crap. What are you people drinking and can I have some?

Cakes - WOW! 10 is incredible. You should shove a picture of Octomom in your DH's face. :P

Chili - um, you're getting rid of my entire diet. Perhaps I should check myself?

Franny and Anna - back on the horse. I'm thinking of you.

Tiger - all i do is shop now...i say what's $100 when you're paying $20,000. hahaha.

kbillsly - YAY!! It's gonna happen.

moorebaby - unfortunately in doing pgd for a x-linked disorder, numbers do matter. the odds are that 50% of my eggs have the disorder, so once you take into account how many will mature, how many with fertilize, and how many will make it through the pgd process, the more the better, but it's still possible! I'm gonna start dancing for you , but you know if it happens soon, I deserve major props :)

Lou - 10 rocks! I wouldn't worry about the ICSI. If anything, I think it'll help out. We have to do it for DH's poor morphology. Rest up and let us know how you're feeling later.

Margi - CALL!! It's your life and your money. CALL!

Kbillsy - What did you buy? It's all about quality! 2 is awesome and you'll be pupo soon!

Tammy - you are so funny! hahaha...I sure hope so!

Moorebaby - You are so sweet. Oh my gosh, WHEN I am pregnant that's going to be the hardest part for me! Not buying everything that is super cute...because everything is super cute! Yes, back for the 2nd IUI tomorrow at 9:45am...more swimming :D I am so hopeful that this will be my time! Seriously, where is AF. This is not the time for a vacation. Didn't she get the memo?

Cakes - What an amazing fert report! haha..i love what comes out of our DH's mouths...see, they are there to make us laugh! Could you imagine if they put 10 in there? yikes!

Sher - see, I knew it! I'd be taking 2 tests a day too! So, is DH ready to celebrate now?

Lou - my dear friend lou - I am so glad that everything went well! Even though slightly painful. 10 eggs! You are an egg making machine! Can't wait to hear your fert report!

Margi - CALL!

Lauren1171- Thank you for sharing your bad experience...I'm so sorry that you had to go through that. How exciting that you are almost to trigger! And so many great eggs to choose from!

Lauren391 - that was my thought exactly as I was purchasing last night. $200 that actually makes me happy vs all the money I have spend TTC with nothing to show for as of yet! I needed something tangible to enjoy :D And man, I look great in my dress today :D Look at your wonderful picture! So cute!

Lots of love to all!

Lauren319...You wont be too far behind me at all. Soo exciting.

Tiger...Good Luck tomorrow! I just know that this is your time. Are you doing bedrest?

Ester...Awesome...off to check out your blog. I started one last week...I got as far as coming up with a title. lol :roll:

I've got a TMI question for you all. I've been having alot of egg white CM for the past 2 days and now what feels like ovulation pain (which I have been getting every month for the past few months). Did everyone else have egg white CM toward the end of stims too? Also, do you think it's possible that I could ovulate before it is time?

tammy- what's your protocol again? i know that the ganirelix is what's given to me after i've been on follistim for a while, & the ganirelix is what finishes the maturation of the follicles/eggs & stops ovulation from happening. i do remember that i had similar symptoms as i got closer to triggering. i bet what you think are ovulation pains are just your ovaries reacting from being so much bigger.

lou wow 10!!!! thats amazing! its gotta make you feel good...even though you are in pain right now. hopefully DH's lil guys know how to charge!! i have everything crossed for a great report tomorrow! get some rest, and i hope you are feeling better!!

tiger awww hun i missed you a lot!! i'm so glad you are back at it!! are you using the same donor for this IUI? sometimes it just takes a few tries, but i have a great feeling about this for you!! when will your beta be??

es i'm sneaky...i never told my new RE that i went back for a "secret" cycle with my old RE. ya see after my last BFN my RE told me she didnt want to do another cycle with my eggs, but she would talk to the other Dr.'s and see what they thought. while i was waiting for her to get back to me i made a 2nd opinion appointment with another RE, and he said he had a new protocol for poor responders and he thought we had a good chance doing it, but they needed a bunch of tests done on me and DH that my other clinic never needed that took a while to get done. while we were getting everything going with the new RE, my old RE called and said they would let me cycle again...so thats what i just did. once i found out it was BFN all i had to do was call the new RE and say i was ready to start.
seriously i am trying to get rid of AF for you, but she is a crazy ***** this month!! grrrrr!!!

lauren it sounds like you are cookin some great follies this cycle. it is wicked long though...you must be out of poking places!! good luck tomorrow..i hope you get to trigger!!

tammy you should be triggering soon too i would think! i'm excited for you!!

afm tomorrow i am going on vacation for the next 2 weeks! i am excited to get away and out of this house. i will have my laptop with me, and will be checking in often!

Ester...I am on 20 units of lupron 2xs a day and 225 units of follistim 2xs a day. You're probably right...if it isnt ovulation than it's just my ovaries reacting to everything...ugh. Cool blog!

Franny...Where are you going? Have a great time! I should be triggering tomorrow night.
