Tammy- I did a FET both times ( eggs were frozen I believe at 3 days possibly at 2) and thawed for 1 full day, would that make them 5 day embies??? I am asking cause you said 5 day embies should be 32 cells but I dont even no if thats what it was, My Dr seems pretty clear on things and she did say this last FET she was not confident with but I still wanted to try and not waste the embies I had frozen ( so I guess its my fault on that one) I will definitely be asking questions since now I am getting my head around the whole process, it sucked to be so new going into it I really had no clue and have learned so much from this forum...

Lauren- Its great you are keeping busy & what better way then shopping and pampering yourself :)

Rypell- I will be praying for your dad I know how you must be feeling.. Its always tough to have a parent sick or going through surgerys... Your family is in my thoughts and I will be praying everything will be ok... (hugs)

Sonya- SO HAPPY for you and David..Congrats on your babys heartbeat... enjoy every minute of your pregnancy your baby will be here before you know it ... :)

AManda- Cant wait to hear about your U/S :)

Annashope- so so sorry about your BFN :(

Tammy- Your Brothers are really mean and heartless, I would not pay attention to what they are saying, I cant believe they would be so hurtful... You are a great person and I dont think you are looking for sympathy... I would block them from your FB post, they can still be on your page without seeing what you are posting, if they dont like what you are posting to bad, its your Journey not theres... I believe God wants us all to have Familys, so keep your head up, dont let anyone bring you down... You deserve this as much as anyone else... You are a strong person dont let your family tell you otherwise... :) (hugs)

Riogirl- COngrats that definitely looks like your pregnant :D :mrgreen: :D As for ohss I had it for weeks I drank lots of gatorade, and it worked... I gained 10lbs in 4 days and looked huge but it all went down before I new it.. You will be ok:)

Jennieswa- Good luck Monday :)

AFM- I am just trying to get my mind off the bfn and starting to look forward.. I am keeping busy... Today I am painting Then out shopping for the rest of the day... :) I have a DR appt Dec3rd to talk about the next step for next year, I am leaning towards Feb :) Thanks to all of you for all the hugs and support :)

Margi sweety yay and yes you are PUPO. Good luck!!!!! Thank you for your sweet message and I do feel like we are kindred spirits and I really appreciate the hugs :) Your message made me feel so good cause I was so upset and had to stay strong not to ruin DH's bday

I think your picture is adorable I just love it!

Thank you girls for all your warm words it really helps and I just don't know where I would be without this board. We are thinking of possibly doing a few rounds of iui but as far as IVF it will probably be late spring/early summer. I will be here in the meantime cheering you all on :)

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.
Image
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!

So far it looks like TWINS for us!! We saw 2 gestational sacs in the uterus and each had a yolk sac. At first she didn't think the 2nd sac had a yolk sac, but then when she looked at it at a different angle she said yep, both of them have yolk sacs. Since I'm only 6 weeks today the RE wasn't worried at all about not having more to see yet so we'll go back Wednesday night for u/s # 2 and should see heartbeats by then. I'm soooo happy with what we saw today but I'll relax even more once I see the heartbeats.

Here's a pic (excuse the yellow circles - I'll be posting the pic to my blog later and I know that some of my blog readers aren't used to looking at u/s pics like we all are.)

Wow! There's so much going on! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures! What a gorgeous group of ladies we have! :D The blinkies are fun too! Tammy totally nailed Rio's! :mrgreen: That's exactly how I picture Her in my mind. You guys really make this process so much easier to cope with. I just got home from my getting my shot.....SUCKS....SOOOOOO BAD! :evil: My ass is so sore that I' m limping. It way worse than last time. Of course, this time it's 2cc instead of 1. I have to go get them from the nurse because DH is out of town. He travels 3 or 4 days a week, which is why we want to move. I want to apologize for the short or lack of personals...so much going on....plus still on the IPAD and it takes forever to post anything. I am so excited and afraid of being excited....does that make sense? I feel like we're so close and don't want to jinx it. My RE is supposed to call with a time for ET. I'm hoping he can give me a report too.

ONE more sleep for me! :D

I hope that All of you ladies have a wonderful day! :D

Amanda - double the fun!Imagethat's you by the way tandem nursing. You will be topless for months!!!!!!!!! DH might love it! Congratulations!

Tammy you crack me up! If I could pee, I would pee on my pants laughing but due to OHSS I have no pee! Heck - I wish I looked that good right now! Alright you girls are motivating me to get in bikini shape, after this baby of course! Awesome you start lupron tonight!!! I am so excited for you!

baby-blu - love your pic- so adorable! congrats on posting it! I am so glad the bleeding is gone and I pray it is gone for good! Don't feel guilty about not fully enjoying the US, you were scared! There will be plenty of time to make up the excitment!

Karin - move on up here neighbor! Keep the PMA and don't be worried about being too excited, give me some of that excitment! :) you will be PUPO soon! Any other tips on how to get some relief?

margi - awesome news! PUPO!!! care to be co-mayor now? 5 weeks of OHSS? F***** how did you survive?

kynlee - how many weeks did you have ohss for? 10 lbs ouch! Have you thought of DHEA? Yeah I know, call me DHEA pusher now! :)

Sonya - you wanna trade moms? ;)

angela - you are so close now hun, I can't wait for your good news! Do you have a name picked?

Leorira - sorry this is a tough AF for you. Your mom sounds baout as supportive as mine.

AFM - Still feel horrible this OHSS is kicking my butt. Can't sleep cause everything is squished in there. 12DPO and I POAS again and had a bit darker line (I think) but not as dark as the control line, but a definite line, so I hope everything is still awesome in there, I got a little nervous it didn't get darker. I guess POAS does that to you right? But then again my pee is all screwed up from the OHSS. I am miserable for a good cause right? How in the world did you girls survive this thing? I am having to hide my belly cause I look 8 mos preggers and don't want people asking. I hope it goes away quick!

Thanks so much everyone! We are so happy but I don't think it's really sunk in yet! We're still walking around talking in "ifs" - like "if both have heartbeats" or "if it really ends up being twins" LOL. I guess it's happiness mixed with not wanting to get too attached to the idea of 2 until we see a pair of beating hearts. But I tell you, DH & I have stopped to stare at that picture hanging up in the kitchen a few dozen times already today. It's love at first sight! :D
