Hi ladies

Reading your up and downs helps me to understand the process and to prepare me for my own ups and down. Tess and Teresa congrats, its good to know that all the stress can result in a happy ending. This is my 5 day of down reg injections. Not getting many side effects just tired and moody. I started to cry for a stupid reason the offer day. My AF is due next week and an frighten that it will be late and delay me going on stims.

I have a two weeks work training course at the end of October, so I am hoping to finsh this cycle by then. successfuly of cause :)

Krys - Congrats on your FET yesterday and for being PUPO now!!! YAY!! :D When is your beta scheduled for?

karenthescorpio - Welcome to our Fall Group! I am so very sorry for your loss, I absolutely cannot imagine, but I'm glad your TAC is in place and will be wishing you lots of luck on this next cycle!

Ryann - Glad to hear your Dad made it through the surgery well. What a long day you had! Hopefully, he'll keep improving daily.

Franny - Wow, you have so much going on there you poor thing. I hope everything goes well with DH's surgery - keep us posted on how he's doing (and how you're doing!) Hoping the spotting you saw was from implantation. I've got everything crossed for you Franny! :D

Brandy - Hope today's SnS goes well! Have they also been calling you with your E2 levels after your appointments?

Lauren - How goes your stimming? Any update on when you'll be triggering?

Hi All,
Just have a few minutes. Ok! I'm getting a little nervous! I'm still not feeling much. No spotting or discharge just sore boobs and butt (from PIO). :? I just think I should be feeling something! Nurse said this is normal. Hope she's right! Trying not to torture myself by poas. Trying to keep that PMA but it's getting more difficult. Personals later. Best wishes to everyone!!
Love hugs and baby dust to all,

Franny - Right now the plan is to thaw 2 and see how they do with the plan of transferring both. I asked if you go to MGH for your IVF because that's where I go. I was just there on Wednesday afternoon, couldn't believe it was so busy the Fruit St. garage was full!

Klinger13- beta is 10/07/2010
and I forgot to mention that they were day
three embies. The doctor said he was really
happy with the one, it looked like it was from
a fresh cycle. Maybe it's the winner!!
Thanks for taking care of this huge list, it's so
good to see who you can relate with each month.
Enjoy your weekend!

I just got back from my SnS and I'm feeling pretty sick about it. Weds I had 5 follies and this morning I only had 4. Why would this happen? I never expected this. She said I have 4 and only 3 that are really in the running. Today I had two on the left that measured at 10 and 8 (Weds they were 8 and 7) Today on the right I had only two and they measured 12,and either 10 or 8 I can't remember, but Wednesday I had 3 on that side that measured 10,8,8. I lost one of the 8's? I feel like I'm on my way to being canceled. In all the reading I've done on the different message boards etc, I have never read anything about someone losing follies. :cry:

Klinger- Wednesday's estrogen was 177. They'll call this evening with today's number.

Krys -- congrats on being PUPO!

BLang4d -- You didn't lose a follie.... it probably just stopped growing. 8mm is pretty small, still the size of an antral follicle. Once they get over 10 is when you can really count them. You follies are still pretty small and you still have quite a few days left to stim. Your 8's could catch up. Do you know how many antral follicles you had to start? Those are the ones that are capable of being stimulated and typically counted on your baseline u/s. If your eggs are good quality, then even with three you have a good chance for success. I would do ICSI if you aren't already to increase your chance of fertilization. It only takes one!

LisaB -- Welcome. Yup, you're in the right place!

Chili -- Totally normal, spotting isn't the norm. Don't give in to the sticks!

Tammy -- Oh no hun. I'm so sorry. I was so happy thinking that you were so right with your theory and there was a late implanter growing in there. What is the plan for you? Are you having another beta "just to make sure"? When can you diagnose an ectopic? Gosh I hope it's not that. Let me know if you need anything.

AFM -- Just leaving work for the race track here in a few mins. While I'm thinking of IVF, I think I will take my mid-day estrace tablet. Three times a day is a killer. I've got a bit of a cold/sore throat but it's a little better today over yesterday. Still kinda sucks though.

Lou- Thank you, my AFC was 9 at my baseline U/S. I had 4 on left and 5 on right. My E2 was only 177 on Weds and I'll find out tonight what is today. I have low AMH and elevated FSH(DOR) so I'm worried fewer follicles means little or no chance for good quality eggs. I'm just going to stop freaking out because I am worrying about something I have no control over. Maybe things will look better at my next appt. :?

Tammy- I'm so sorry.

Tammy- I am so very sorry I thought everything was going to be ok since it went back up. Does the Dr think it is an etopic? When can they find out for sure? My heart breaks for you guys :cry: :cry: Hold Zach close and know that we are all here for you too.

Chili- Try not to worry. I read that implant spotting only happens in like 30% of cases. I didn't have any symptoms other then sore breasts. Just try to stay positive for your little ones.
