leorira- oh my gosh i see a line. i even showed dh and he can see the line to. go girl you will get a nice beta come thursday.

Qita- what do they mean early lh? is that when the lining is out of phase? hung in there. you will get good eggs tue.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2654938/
look at that study that suggest otherwise in regards to canceling a cycle due to early LH.


Margi- Ca i hope you were not snowed in today. go girl thos follies are really taking of. what did they measure today?

Anton- how are you today?

lyd10-you are definately pregnant. enjoy

lauren- that sucks big time, maybe you should carry the bill to the doc and tell then yoy will pay the amount insurance pays them and see what they say? you have proof of everything. tell them they are the once that screwed you up. that will be interesting to know what the doc says. hey try it for me for the heck of it.

Yep, lining out of sync. They have cancelled the cycle as the lining means implantation will be unlikely. No egg collection for me :cry:

Leora! I told you that you would see a line on Sunday! Well it was Sunday for me! LOL I could n't be MORE excited! You are headed in the right direction! YAYAYAYAYAY!
:D

I started stimming last night... I feel horrible still - massive head cold, can barely breathe, nauseated, vomiting - its okay to be injecting hormones feeling like this right?

I've been stalking you Leora.... and so happy to see your pink line. I wanted to shout out "GET A FRER!" so we could see some earlier results but if you're showing a line on a IC that's got to be a good beta coming up. Congrats, kiddo. :)

Leora- I believe I also told you that you'd have a visible line by Sunday. I totally see it! You are most definitely PREGNANT!

Qita- I'm so sorry you are canceled. Is there any way to do a freeze all instead so you can still have ER?

Margi- You are an egg making machine! I think you will trigger tonight. So excited for your updates.

Tammy- I think waiting one cycle will recharge your ovaries and you will have a Margi-like response next cycle. This will be your BFP cycle!

CJ- I'm sorry you feel crappy. I don't think a cold interferes with stimming though. Someone asked Ghost recently i believe.

Lauren- I'm going to Bon Jovi next week in Chicago! You'll have to tell me how the show was. Have a great time.

AFM- Went our to eat last night then back to a friends house where I proceeded to barf up my dinner. I kinda had to tell them I was pregnant then. So weird how it comes on fast and then i immediately feel better. I feel worse after I eat.

Good luck everyone! Have a great Sunday.

Thanks NWQuiz- much appreciated. The study is really interesting. I don't know whether freezing eggs is legal here (Dubai). I know for sure that freezing embryos isn't. Am not due to have an appointment with RE for another few days but will call them tomorrow (closed here now) to try and discuss further with them. I am not sure whether that would make it too late as last stim drug yesterday (day 10 of stims). Thanks again, I am really grateful.

Hi guys -

Congrats, Leora! So happy for you! You are on your way, girl!

AFM, Tammy and other HPT experts - I need your advise!!!!
I took another HPT this morning and it was definitely lighter than the one last night :( no question about it. So i am thinking This might be a chemical afterall. Why would my morning pee produce a lighter result than my night pee from the night before? no reason, except if HCG went down in my system :( I think i better prepare myself for a chemical on Monday.

Leora...That line looks beautiful!!

LYD...After what happened to me last week...I just dont know what to think about lines getting lighter or darker now...especially when the difference is not that much and it is very early on. Remember how my line went from NOT being able to see it on camera to nice and dark in pics? And...my beta didnt go up, after all. It went from 7 to negative. So dont let it worry you any, seriously. Hang in there!

SD...Have a great trip! Will you be checking in at all? When will you be back?

Qita...If they can freeze...I would definitely do so. I am soooo very sorry...how horrible. How did they know about the problem?

Lou...So sorry about dinner. What did your friends say? Feel better soon.

Carol...Yayyy for stimming. Feel better soon!

Margi...I am soooo excited for you. Lou says trigger tonight...I will guess tomorrow night (just for fun). lol Keep us posted!

Lauren...I would be bitching up a storm to both the doc and the insurance company. First of all...I dont see how they can charge you for an IVF cycle when you didnt have one. This whole situation is bull crap! Get on them!! I hope and pray that you and I end up together again after all...it will make the wait for me, anyhow...much more worth it. :roll:

AFM: I decided to start taking the DHEA and CoQ10 again for the next few weeks. Why not. I'm not sure if I told you all about the results from when I was on the DHEA for 5 days and my levels were 500 and some...and the doc thought that was awful high for only being on it for 5 days...so I went off of it and got new bloodwork done without taking DHEA it was in the 100's...so looks like it is okay to take some again after all. I just think I will stick to 2 pills rather than 3 this time. What do you DHEA experts think? Just the 2 weeks I was on it before seem to yield a few extra follies on AFC day...so being on it 3 more weeks or so now...eh, maybe it will help some...maybe not.
What were your levels of DHEA before and during for those who had it tested?

Leora.. waiting for another hpt pic! You need a better hpt! Can you get another brand? I am living vicariously through your BFP right now and I need you to feed my obsession! LOL

Tammy, I would like to know more about the DHEA dosage as well. I have been taking the minimum dosage for the last few months - just from AF to O, and I am not sure if it is from that or the royal jelly, but I have been producing more follicles it seems. I would love to know what a good dosage is. I only take the royal jelly once a day too. Can that be taken the whole cycle?

SD/Nicole - Have SOOOO much fun in Hawaii! We'll miss you, but say hello to the beach for me!

Qita - what? That sucks sooooooo much! You can't freeze embryos in Dubai? Why not? Religious reasons? You should check and see if you can freeze eggs. Eggs don't freeze/thaw as well as embryos, but it's better than nothing. Does your doctor have any idea what the heck happened?

Anna and Sonya - thanks for stalking me! I'm a little hesitant to move over to the pregnant side with nothing but a faint BFP, but I'm hoping that soon I will!

nwquiz - thanks! If husbands are seeing it, it has to be there! Mine makes fun of me about how much I 'see' on HPTs. But this one is really here! How is your 2ww going? When do you start to POAS/beta?

Carol & Lou - y'all win! Sunday was the BFP day! :D

Carol - feel better - being sick sucks in general, but on top of the ickiness from stimming - poor honey! Have your DH make you some soup or tea! Have you gotten your 'gift' yet? Clearly my 'karma' idea worked!

LYD - maybe it's just the concentration of your urine or the dye in the test. Not all hope is lost. Try to keep your chin up until your beta tomorrow.

Sherry - thanks! I hope you see yours really soon.

Tammy - 'bionic eyes' lady - you were right! My problem is that if I focus hard enough on even a blank piece of paper, I can see a second line once I'm 10dpo or so and desperate! Now DH sees it too - so it's real now! No ideas at all about the DHEA - maybe PM rio?

anton - good luck at the RE appt tomorrow! I hope that blood test was awesome!

AFM - no, I haven't taken another pee stick yet. I'm waiting for tomorrow morning :lol:

I just wanted to say to all the BFN ladies and those waiting in the 2ww that I'm so sorry if my news is hurtful to you. I know how much it sucks when someone else gets that BFP and you don't. I'll keep posting here to keep y'all updated, but I'll try to obsess a little less. I wanted to apologize for my outbursts over the last few days - I was just so shocked and excited that I wanted to share my news and I didn't think much about how hard it is to hear. I'll keep things a bit calmer from now on.

Now for the next 2ww..... my clinic does a beta at 17dpo (or 16 for me this time since 17 would be a Friday and they are closed). Then they schedule an u/s for one week and two weeks after that (the first to check on how many embryos took and the second to check for a heartbeat). So hopefully, if all goes well, I'll have a beta this Thursday, and u/s the Thursdays after that. Thursday is my new favorite day!

Leora, no need to apologize. I know it was not directed toward me and there are others that are desperately waiting their bfp... but from my experience, as jealous as I may be at other's good fortune (and it is only human to be jealous), I am still happy that you and others have succeeded. I don't think I have ever been happier for another woman's BFP than I am for yours! You have every right to be excited and posting your pics! You deserve this and I just pray that this is just one step in the right direction toward motherhood! I will be stalking you every step of the way! :mrgreen:

Ahem.... old timer POAS junkie stepping in here.. any really early testing can be seriously compromised by the dilution of the urine. I took FRERs in the morning and the evening and my morning tests were ALWAYS much lighter than my evening ones. I pee a lot at night, drink my liquids usually after 4 pm, and tend to not hardly pee at all between 10 and 5 pm. So I took my evening tests when I had super concentrated urine in my system. Even then, you can sometimes get no difference from day to day or even a teeny bit of lightening between tests. It's like alcohol.. also depends on what else is in your system and how you are metabolizing things that day.

Check out my blog if you want to see photos of my test strips. Good luck!!!

Tammy: I am guessing you are right about trigger tomorrow, but we shall see soon when I get my call ;-) Regarding DHEA, I agree. I didn’t get my levels checked--probaby should have, but I was more conservative as well--took 2 pills (50mg) a day instead of where I see most suggest 75.

qita: I am so sorry..that totally stinks! :( Do they have any idea why? And no freezing allowed?! :evil: I am so sorry for you...what will they do to prevent it next cycle? Image

Leora: I am totally with Carol--no need to apologize. Your “obsessing” helps many of us. Really. We really truly live vicariously through each other--the good, the bad and the ugly. BUT we especially love the good. Especially to such an exceedingly deserving, fabulous woman such as yourself!!! Bask in it!! And let us bask with each moment too. Please!! Congratulations to you...so happy for your:Image and how are "we" going to wait until beta on Thursday?!?!?

Carol: I hope that your illness goes soon...I wouldn't worry about stimming while sick. By the time you are ready to go you should be feeling all better. Take extra good care of yourself though. And make DH pamper you...

Lyd: Hang in there. As Tammy said, it is hard to really know levels from HPTs. Try to stay positive and I will be saying extra prayers for you and your bean tonight.

AFM: Getting closer and closer....my guess is trigger tomorrow, but we shall see when I get my call here in a couple hours with my E2 and progesterone levels...here is what I am looking at:

Left: 19,16,16, 15,15,13,12,11 +smallers
R: 19, 18, 18, 17,17, 14, 13, 12, 12, +smallers

I am wanting to get some site-seeing in while I am here, but these ovaries aren't enjoying long walks at the moment. We shall see. DH arrives in an hour, so maybe we will take a bus to Hollywood...
