ahhhh...i got my 2 lauren's back in action!! haha i'm gonna have to come up with nicknames this time so i dont confuse you guys!!
welcome back!! i'm so sorry about your BFN! trust me, ive been there, done that, and its not cool at all! i'm glad you are getting a chance to try again, and i cant wait to cheer you on! if this cycle in june doesnt work i will be doing one more cycle at a different clinic and they will be using the estrogen priming for it. from what i understand is once you detect your LH surge you start on the patches, and then add cetortide to stop your body from ovulating that cycle. you then wait for your next AF, and start the stims. the thought process of doing this is to kinda make a stock pile of follies from the first cycle, and add them to the actual IVF cycle so you hopefully get more mature follies. its supposed to be good for people like us who only end up with 1 or 2 eggs to help us get more. <shrugging my shoulders> its all new to me too, and the more i try to research it the more confused i get, but i've read some past posts on other message boards and it seems to work for a lot of people. I figure you will be doing an antagonist protocol with the estrogen priming right?? if this cycle doesnt work for me, i am going to try to get the next one started asap, and that will hopefully be in august...so hopefully i wont need it, but most likely i will be with you in august if you have to wait till then!!
how are you feeling today?? thinking of you always! (you are beautiful btw!!)
what day are you in your cycle? i hope you can get a cycle in before vaca! its so hard to plan your life around IVF. trust me i know all too well. there have been so many things i've had to miss out on this past year because of never knowing where i would be in a cycle. (ive been cycling back to back since last august). people have no idea what we all have to go through, and its even harder when you dont tell friends and family about whats going on. it can make you feel very isolated, and alone. thats why this board is sooooo special. we all get it! we are all here for each other, and its such a great place for support. i know the waiting is horrible, but this whole process is a hurry up and wait type of a situation. it stinks. stick around here and we will keep each other company ok?
oh and my DH is a teacher. I've met so many wonderful woman on here that are also teachers, and i find it very ironic that so many people who dedicate their lives to help and educate our children have such a hard time having a family of their own. it breaks my heart.
i loved the finale, but i wont give anything away! of course i dont even know where to begin to give away any spoilers haha
how are you doing?? thinking of you!
nothing really new to report. just in my BCP phase that is always annoying, and never seems to end. (its hasnt even been a week yet, and i'm already ready to get on with it!!)
my RE office called me back this morning saying that they had to close the office unexpectedly yesterday, and that they were sorry. so we have to go back tomorrow, and they promised they would be open when we get there!! grrrrr they better be!!
oh and its like 90 degrees here today...WTH? i'm melting, and i'm trying to NOT put in my AC's today because its way too early for AC's..i live in new england...this is so not right! haha and its not like i can go hang out at the beach because the ocean is like 45 degrees up here.
oh well...me and DH are heading to our friends house tonight for the american idol finale, and i hope they have their AC's in!
have a great day everyone
much love always***
