Anton - lol i surely must ask my friends if they have health insurance, since i myself don't know what i put into the food i prepare :P i start mixing anything i find available in my kitchen :P
i wish u all the luck tomorrow, go have this u/s and come back with the great news :D
don't worry about the PGD, im sure everything is gonna come back normal since u already done the chromosomal tests and found nothing, maybe it is a receptivity problem so u can ask ur RE about ur endometrial thickness and E2 levels.... (it is a concern of mine lately, dunno maybe it can help u..)
im glad we're gonna spend our 2WW together :D maybe u can give me some cooking lessons hahahaha :mrgreen:
best of luck for tomorrow :)

Fruit- Thank you for your wishes and believing that all will be good my friend! about the chromosomes test, even though the chromosomes both my DH's and mine are OK, the PGD might find that the combination of them might not produce normal embryos and thus No implantation so far. this is what we are going to find out with the PGD...but I am positive that test will turn out fine! about my endo, my lining so far is mostly varies between 11-15 and I have done Labaroscopy and Hysteroscopy with ALL looking good..I would love to give you cooking lessons! ...you will pay me back with your BFP!!!! :wink:

Anton - nice to hear ur lining are doing this great U GO GIRL!! and will b praying for ur PGD to come back normal.

AFM: bad news, i just got the call from my nurse, she said that the blood work showed that my E2 levels are very very high (didnt say the numbers but i will definetly ask on wednesday) and they reduced my stim shots from 150 to 50 for only today and tommorow (today my eggs are 10mm and 11mm and i dont know if 2 another shots of 50 ml are enough to make them grow :( )and on wednesday i have to go and re-do the blood test to see my E2 levels and i also have endometrial thickness of 7mm which i think is not good enough for the receptivity and im afraid that from now till the hcg trigger the endometrial thinckness will reduce :(
dont know what to do, i guess i have to wait till wednesday to see my RE opinion and to see the E2 levels..... :(

any thoughts anyone???

Anton & Fruit~ I am praying so hard for you ladies! It's crazy how bad we can want this for each other. :lol: Try to hang in there and keep up the PMA. You both have been through so much and so deserve this! It will happen for you, all these BFP just have to overflow into next month. :mrgreen: Please keep us updated. Sending you bucket loads of prayers and babydust!!



Oh, and you both have inspired me to do some cooking. I'm going to grab my two DD and head to the store. What to make...

Anton and Fruit-I am also praying for you both this week. Everything is going right into God's hands and I want you to know His plan is going to be THE perfect plan. We have suffered so much already but if it brings us closer to HIm it's going to be all worth it. Time is all we need and maybe a little patience, but we will have His blessings.

Fruit- Glad you dinner party went over well, you and Anton had me laughing over "the insurance"... but my driving to the store alone requires that...Remember the movie "My Best Friend's Wedding" and Kimmie's road rage?

AFM: Still no sign of ov but dh has given his "best" effort for this cycle and I think he is trying to give me the best birthday gift this year, yikes it's this Friday. Turning 35 is so surreal but I'm working all day so maybe it will fly by. Been trying to find every distraction in the book to keep my little mind occupied yet this is all I can think about. Think I'll call the clinic this morning to ask more questions about when I need to have the meds (coming from California) ordered by.

Hey Everyone,
Thanks for the congrats across the board. Went for my 2nd beta today (11dp5dt) and its at a 135. It did not double from the 79 of my 1st beta but my RE said anything more than a 60% increase is good. I have my u/s and another beta scheduled for next Monday. Keeping my fingers crossed that my beta goes up a lot in the next week.

I had my ER today. They retrieved 10 eggs. I was hoping for me but I keep telling myself I only need 1.

I am in sooo much pain since the ER. Not sure why??? I don't remember hurting like this the first two times. Any suggestions.

I will find out tomorrow how many of the eggs fertilzed and then I plan to talk to my Dr about a 3 day vs 5 day transfer.

tryn4#2~ Way to go girl! 10 eggs is great :lol: I only had 4 and transfered the 2 that made it and it worked for me. So no worries, 10 is an awesome number!!! I was also in much more pain with this last ER, tons more cramps and even a little brownish discharge :oops: Sorry if to much TMI. But all worked out great!!! You are gonna be PUPO before you know it. I did 3dET both times with mine, I just prefer to have them in me as soon as possible. But I know 5det is suppose to be great too, it's totally what makes you feel most comfortable. Sending you tons of prayers and stickey vibes!!! :mrgreen:

Jerseygirl~Yay for your 2nd beta!!! :D When is your U/S? I can't wait till mine :roll:

Well DH would like to say thanks to all you lovely ladies that got me in the mood for some homecooking. He came home to pecan pie and lasagna, 2 of his favs!!!

Hi everyone!

Today is day 7 of stims and so far so good! :D I went for U/S and blood test this morning. On my left ovary I have 4 good ones and another 2 small ones and on the Right side the same. So total of 8 good ones and 2-3 smaller. Size of follies varies from 10-11mm. My lining is 15. And my RE is pleased with all that. :D My cyst hasn’t grown since Saturday and that is also great news. :D My RE subscribed me Follistim 150 I.U and Merional 75 I.U for three days starting tonight. That is same meds and dosage since day one of stims. He also subscribed me Orgalutran (Ganirelix) 0,25mg/0,5ml. The nurse will call me in the next couple of hrs (she said at noon) with the blood test results (Progesterone and LH) and to let me know on how to proceed. If I am taking the Ganirelix as of tonight or tomorrow and to also let me know when to go in for another U/S the final I guess prior to the ER. When I asked when my ER is going to happen, my RE was a bit sceptical as Monday might be too far and maybe Sunday...he told me to wait for the b/t results later today and then to let me know. He was SO kind today, he told the nurse to charge me only one test and not both (Progesterone & LH). And also told me that if at the end I am not going to need all 3 packs of Ganirelix the clinic will take it back and pay me the amount it cost me. That also I found very Kind of him. .....Just got a call from my clinic, my progesterone level is a bit high and my RE wants me to go in tomorrow morning for another blood test (with NO charge the nurse told me!!) So I am today and tomorrow I am on the same dose as previous days (same as mentioned above) and at 22:00pm I am taking the Ganirelix and also tomorrow night at 22:00pm. On Thursday morning I am going in for my last U/S where I will find out if I am ready for the ER and when are we going to do it. I am excited girls!! :D Another cycle is heading towards the end and the agony is getting bigger and bigger as I am getting closer to the PGD day!! I keep telling to myself to keep up my PMA! PMA! PMA!


Fruit- I am not an expert honey, but you should stop WORRING! More or less we both have same measures and according to my RE everything looks fine! He was very pleased with all the sizes and # of follies. What did your RE told you?... We are a step closer in getting that BFP girl! :D Stick to that and keep up your PMA! Image


Easley- Thank you So much for your prayers and kind words mama! :D I am glad we inspired you to go grocery shopping and cook your DH his fav dishes!! I am proud of you! :wink: Image


Sunshine- I agree with you about God’s plan...THE perfect plan for each and every one and I agree that we need time but I don’t agree on the “little” patience! We need A LOT of patience to go through this and come on the other side sane! 8) ...Glad your DH gave his best shot! :wink: When will you know if something happend! I have a good feeling about this! You just never know sometimes! ...Yay for turning 35 this Friday! I am happy for you! I love birthdays!....heres something funny for you and DH to make you laugh... Image


Alleykittie- YAY for 2 HB’s!!!!!!! Surprise twins sound such exciting news!!!! I am SO happy for you!! :D Image


Lauren- Thank you for your kind words honey! :D I am doing the AF dance for you so that you can start your meds ASAP and get that BFP!!!
Image


Jerseygirl- Well done for a great 2nd beta mama!! :D I wish you a healthy pregnancy for the following 8 months! Image


Tryn4#2- Bravo for retrieving 10 eggs! I wish you a great fert report!!!! :D ....And sorry you are not feeling well, take good care of yourself!! Your babies are coming home in a couple of days!!! Image


Wishingandhoping- Thank you so much for your kind words! :D And YES! This is going to be our cycle!! Are you ready to be a mama!!! :mrgreen: Your snow babies are coming home any day now!!! And you are definitely a POAS addict my friend!!!! I wish you to see those 2 lines SOON!! Image

:lol: Anton- Awesome embibaby report and a 15mm lining is perfect! Sounds like they are really monitoring you this time and your RE is working hard and determined to make this work! :D Cannot wait to hear how the results go today and find out more about ER, sounds like they are going to be retrieiving a good bit of embibabies! I'm praying THIS is you cycle so much! Thank you for the personal, you have me laughing over here, I definately need to save that one to my favorites... All this babydancing has got me addicted you know but last night he had to push me away and I was like but I'm ovulating! :lol: He was like I have to wait until it builds back up :oops: but I gave him the guilt trip so he will be coming home from work earlier then usual this afternoon. Thinking about spicing it up a little and sending him a naughty text lol.... Anyway got to make it fun, right? Maybe make him a nice early candlelight dinner before he has to head back into work. That is if he makes it back into work tonight, he might be too exhausted by the time I'm done. :mrgreen:
