Wow mamaboo...I am so sorry that you are going through this big scare! I too am hoping that it is pneumonia. After all we go through to expand our families it would seem downright wrong if something were seriously wrong. Lots of prayers and love coming your way from our house tonight. Keep us posted, and take care of yourself.

Your protocol sounds a lot like mine. I was so not happy to see those intramuscular shots for the estrogen on my calendar; however, if that is what will get us a baby, then so be it.

Bliss- Dancing as much as I can for you!! Hoping AF comes as soon as possible so you can get things started. Did you try the cinnamon tea pumpkin recommended?

Mamaboo- what a night. Sorry you ended up in the ER. Hopefully things start clearing up and you feel better soon.

Lyd/nancy- even though the estrogen I.M. Shots aren't fun they are ten times easier than the PIO. And like nancy said- as long as you get that baby it will all be worth it. Good luck to you both.

AFM- already nervous/anxious about tomorrows follow-up beta. Hoping things have doubled as much as they should have and that the baby/babies are still stuck in there and growing like they should.

Nancy and Blair - so the estrogen shots are into butt. i see. my clinic just switched recently from patches dont know why. so why are estrogen shots easier then PIO? do i still need to warm it up or not?

Lyd- I think the estrogen is just much thinner and didn't leave knots as much as the PIO. I would do the estrogen any day over the PIO- it already looks like I have golf balls on my hips after only a few weeks. I did the estrogen shots when I was on an increased estrogen protocol with the pills and patches.

Nancy - my transfer will be the week of 5/30 hopefully as well! right now we are planning to thaw on monday and transfer on tuesday.
Blair - thanks for the 411 on the estrogen shots. glad they are not as thick as the PIO.

LYD10,
So cool that we'll be doing transfer around same time. If I understand correctly my transfer will be the same day as thaw.

How many frosties do you have? We only have one.

i have frosties from 2 fresh cycles. my clinic freezes pretty much everything - so i have 9 frosties of questionable quality: 3 day2 embies and 3 day3 embies and also 3 PN1 embies - which most likely are not viable at all - because there was only one nucleus there when there was supposed to be 2. like i said my embryologist freezes everything! in most other clinics they have stricter policies on freezing - the embies have to make it to day 5. not at mine - dont know why. my clinic likes to freeze them as early as possible. on this last fresh cycle she wanted to do a day 2 transfer just so she can freeze the rest on day 2. i hope there is one good embie amongst the 6, just have to find it.

how many days is your embie?

Oh that's good that you have so many. Certainly out of all of those, one is your "winner" Our one embie is a day 5. Our doctor said it's a grade B (in our clinic they grade them by letter and A is the best then B etc...)

Praying this is THE cycle for both of us.

Mama boo-I'm sending up prayers that whatever you have will go away without incident. It's tough enough trying to grow and nurture this young life into existence anyways so you don't need anything else stressing you out. I hope you get better soon so you can get back to just being preggers. Hugs honey.

Blair-My very pregnant mama-to-be it seems...what a heck of a first beta! Cheers. I can't wait to hear that ur having multiples. :shock:

EOE-good luck on all the upcoming FET's. Sending out baby dust. Oh! Bliss I started dancing for u girl.

crissy- Thanks. Im really hoping it stays that way and the numbers have gone up all weekend. Im of course freaking out since we have had relatively good betas before (beta #1-314 /beta #2-940) and then ended up miscarrying. Just keep your fingers crossed that they call before too long with great news. Of course then I will be nervous for 2 wks since they make me wait for the first Ultrasound.
