Kynlee...that sounds much better than what I was thinking that you were saying. If they froze them on the 2nd day when they were 4 cell and thawed for 1 day and they are 6 cell...that is "okay". You ultimately want 8 cell embryos on day 3...but 6-7 and 9-10 cells are good too. If you froze them on day 2 and they thawed 1 day then they are 3 cell embies. Most clinics freeze on day 3 and thaw 2 days or freeze on day 5...so that is where the confusion came in. I would still be researching, making a list, and asking questions at your next appt. I dont blame you at all for wanting to use your frozen embies...they ALL deserve a chance. I have even put some back that were almost deceased (not sure of the right term there). You did the right thing. Again, I am just sooo sorry that this cycle didnt work out for you...but know that it WILL. Have fun shopping and painting today!
Amanda...We decided to start the lupron only tonight and stims in the morning...since I saw that that is what we did in the Sept cycle when I got pregnant...vs just starting everything at once tomorrow morning like this last cycle when it was a negative. Not much difference...but maybe it will be THE difference. lol
GOOD LUCK today on your ultrasound!!! I cant wait to hear how many babies you are going to have!!!
Rio...We need a picture of you! ::taps foot impatiently:: This one will do for the moment though.
How's that Cheri? lol How was your line this morning Rio? How is the OHSS?
Margi...Yayyy for a great IUI and great counts/motility, too. Awesome news!!! You're PUPO!!! Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers for a BFP!
Kelly...Yay for starting lupron with me tonight. I'm doing it at 9pm est...so we may even be doing it at the exact same time...depending on where you are, lol. I then start stims tomorrow morning. Anyhow, It's kinda funny cause I was sitting here writing that you need to have the lupron stored cold on ice in a thermal lunch bag...when my big box of meds showed up at the door (talk about timing)...and I had to sit here and erase what I wrote...because my lupron also said "room temp" on the bottle for the first time ever. Soooo I just called the pharmacist and he said only during the summer months do they write refridgerate on the bottle. He said as long as it isnt over 77 degrees. What's the temps like in Cali right now? Hope that helps...in case your were worried at all. lol A very happy birthday to DH.
Leora...AF is really bad here too. Sooo embarrassing this morning during SnS. I usually only go 3 light days...but not this time. Hope yours gets better soon. Can you have your iron checked? That worries me. Did you call your doctor? And, law school?! Ugh. Just love the picture!!! Such an adorable couple!!!
Stephanie...So happy to hear that the bleeding has stopped and that your pinto beans are doing wonderful. I hope it stays away and you have a drama-free pregnancy from here on out. Looking forward to your u/s report on Tuesday! Love the picture! Such a cute couple!!
Krys...Sorry I cant help with the picture thing on iphone...hopefully, you can figure it out.
Ester...How are you feeling?
Lou..Sending more hugs.
Anna...So sorry again. Glad to see you sticking around. Hoping and praying that IUI works for you while you are waiting to try IVF again. Keep us updated and Good Luck!!!
Sonya...Love that picture of you two. So pretty. So give us all the details from yesterday...did they let David in the room?
Angela...Thankyou for checking in on us and your kind words, too. Your ticker was the same as mine...so you are and I would have been 35 weeks and 1 day today. Zach was born at 35 weeks 3 days. Weird to think about. I hope all is going well with you and that Gabriella plans to stay put for awhile longer yet...I know you've been worried this whole pregnancy (and for good reason), but looks like you are in the clear now, girlie! Sooo happy for you!!!
To everyone...WOW! I am sooo overwhelmed with all of your responses ...you all made me cry. lol It's funny how you guys only know 1/1000 of what my brothers have done and yet you seem to have them pegged all the way. Nailed it. And, you're right...I am not going to let it bother me...or at least I am going to try. Thank you for all of responses and making me realize that it is NOT me. I do feel a ton better talking to you girls...and I appreciate it sooo much.
AFM: Starting lupron tonight and stims tomorrow morning on a high dose and then lowering the dose on Sunday morning and going in for my next SnS on Monday morning. I am guessing that I will trigger on Friday the 26th...give or take 1 day. PMA!
