Thanks so much everybody for all of your messages of support! They are greatly appreciated. I have more of a prospective this evening. They finally decided to call with my results and it looks like the progesterone protocol that my doctor changed from last cycle had no effect. My progesterone level was .08. I was taking endometrium 3 times a day. Last cycle that I got pregnant with Aimee I was taking the progesterone in oil shot. He changed the protocol since I was alone and assured me that the 3 times a day was equivalent to the shot. My last IVF my progesterone level at 9dp5dt was 142. So I guess we can all do the math! How disappointing!

moorebaby I hope everything is ok. Ive been praying for you!

So DH comes home next week. I said what the heck and threw caution to the wind and bought a new puppy (Presa Canario) that DH has been begging for. He's only 2 weeks old right now and will be ready the beginning of June. He was cute and sweet and BIG and gave me much needed smiles and giggles today that Ive not had in the last year. So that gives us time to get DH home and go on a nice muchly needed vacation and then come home and scoop him up and have some puppy fun!

Personals later! Its time for a top shelf margarita LOL Prayers and best wishes to you all! Lots of baby dust coming your way!

I will be anxiously awaiting my call in the morning at 7:30am. They will let me know whether or not to come on in for my 3dt or wait 2 more days. I am very anxious to "go pick up my babies", but I know a 5dt will be best!

My bff gave birth to her son yesterday, he was 6 wks early. Both are doing good. I just cant wait til its my turn. I will visit them both tomorrow. I feel like this is my time, Im not even jealous, I really thought I would be. I am very happy for her.

It seems like ever since I decided to go the donor route that everything has just fell into place. It seems so right, and everything has worked out so well. I just hope I am not getting my hopes up, just to be disappointed once again. I just dont see how if everything has checked out so well for me and "Bunny" that I wont get a BFP. Trying not to get too worked up and excited, and just stay calm and neutral.

Im in NC and praying for all of those who are victims of the numerous tornadoes we have had over the last 2 wks.Hope everyone is safe.

Sorry to hear the sad news Heather. I am very sad for you, especially since you don't have DH with you. Glad you will have a new best friend to keep you company soon. We're here for you.

Moorebaby- Praying for you. I used crinone last cycle and had no issues, didn't start for several days after I stopped taking it. Hopefully its implantation!

Indigofire- So excited that you are PUPO. You have done everything you can to prepare a perfect home for your embie. Sticky vibes to you!

Welcome to all the new people. This is a terrific group of ladies and we are thrilled to have you. There is great strength in numbers.

AFM- UPDATE!!!!! You can move me to the injectable category. I started stimming tonight. Feels great to finally be going. Estimated FET day is Mother's Day. I will know Tuesday for sure.

Everything looked good today. So funny- I had my u/s at a university hospital in Lansing Michigan three hours away from home because I was there on business this morning. Next week I will have my u/s in another different town away from home because I will be there on business. My transfer will be in YET ANOTHER town three and a half hours from home. Glad my RE has so many partnerships with other Doctors throughout the state or I would never be able to get this done as much as I travel.

I am getting a kick out of the fact that it feels like every Doctor in Michigan will have seen me naked from the waist down by the time this is all said and done. :lol:

Stranger still- my Beta will be in South Carolina when I am there for banking school. You know you are becoming a pro at IVF when you can do it and not miss a beat while traveling all over the U.S. :-)

Moorebaby -- Thinking of you. As others have said, it ain't over, 'til it's over. Hang in there. Keep the PMA. I know it's hard but as others have said -- LOTS of the women over on the pg after treatment board have had bleeds. It doesn't mean it's over until the doctor tells you that. Praying for you.

Ladies (Lee, Lynzee, Ryann, Nancy, akdelp, Blissful, Heather, riogirl, deftonesmo, nicksgam, Amanda, easley),

Thank you so much...I'm overhwelmed by your support & encouragement. I had my blood drawn at 8:30 & gave them DH's cell phone # to call w/ the results. I can't bear to hear the news. If it's a positive, it will be a true miracle, which I know miracles have happened. I hate to sound so negative, but it's not hard not to be when i have a full flow of bright, red blood (sorry, tmi). I already set up a WTF appointment for next Thursday afternoon. It was sad b/c when I was pulling out of the parking lot, I saw my RE parking his car & getting out of it & when he saw me, he waved & smiled. So, I guess when I see him next Thursday, he'll probably undestand why I had such a sad expression on my face. It's so frustrating b/c we achieved such milestones w/ this cycles...having a fertilization that was about 70% (it's always been about 20%), getting to a 5dt (we've NEVER had that). I know when we did the ET, they were at the cavitating/compacted morulae stage & not quiet at the blast stage, but we were so hopeful! Especially, w/ putting in 3, we thought our chances were much better this time! I have NEVER started bleeding before my BETAS, so I'm thinking the Crinone didn't give me as high of a progesterone level as the PIO used in my previous cycles. I told DH to ask the nurse what my progesterone levels are. Who knows? If it's low, maybe that was the cause, maybe not??? Unfortunately, there are some questions we'll never have answers to.

So, assuming that the result is a BFN, we will cycle again in July. We could do it again in May/June, I guess. That is a possibility, but I think I might need a little bit of a break. Since I'm a teacher, the end of the school year (our last day is June 21st) is hectic....the last 2 months (May & June), so I don't want to stress & overwhelm myself. So, it looks like July will work better. We are going to Georgia (Lake Sinclair)...DH's mom & stepdad have a beautiful house on the lake & are building a 2nd house on their property for family visits, so we'll be driving down there...we'll leave the Friday before July 4th (I believe it's July 1st), so we can spend the holiday there & the rest of the week w/ lots of family & friends, & then we'll be leaving Georgia on Saturday, the 9th to head up to VA Beach for a week (we exchanged our timeshare w/ a condo there right on the beach...cannot wait!) & then back home to CT on Saturday, the 16th. So, as soon as we get back, I can start. I will probably start w/ the Lupron while we are away. School won't start until the last few days of August, so it'll be stress-free & more relaxing to cycle then.

Sorry for rambling, but thanks ladies so much for your support & concern. I'm going to kill some time...retail therapy is calling me :-)
