Leora, maybe you can say you have to take your husband to the doctor for 2 of those times and your dog to the vet for the others 2?

I hope everyone is doing well. We ve had some ups and downs on the board. WE, I can't believe this happened to you 2 times in a row. It really sucks. This year I went thru ectopic followed by BFN followed by miscarriage. But at least I had some variety, so to speak.

Lauren, I am glad you have at least four follies growing. Maybe they can work with that!

aFM, nothing new. Still waiting for AF after my miscarriage. It's been 3 weeks already? I loose count. Work has been busy which makes the waiting easier. We ve been trying on our own too. But I doubt I ovulated this cycle or if I did I have no idea when. So just working and waiting for AF and the holidays to come.

aKdelp, I think you'll be just fine. Bleeding and clots is ok. Especially since you saw your earthy bean today.

Most of you probably don't know me but I cycled on the boards a few time and eventually had our baby girl last November and still try and catch up on the boards once in awhile! I just wanted to quickly pipe in and say when I was pregnant around 5 weeks I started to bleed very heavy bright red with a lot of large clumps and was convinced I had miscarried:( luckily my bean was fine and I bled/spotted my entire first trimester so please keep up the PMA! Good luck on your journeys and we will probably be doing a FET in January so maybe I will see some of you in a winter cycle thread!

akdelp- I am so sorry. I cant imagine how stressful this is for you and DH. What a horrible thing. I am so sorry.. I will be praying for you. Please let us know... I am thinking of you and I pray that everything is still going strong!

I am thinking of you all. I am an emotional wreck- DH and I are back and forth today-he just came home from being out of town for a day/night. He just does not understand me and it frustrates me so much. He talks with out thinking and I just cant take it right now. errr..... I am just going to sleep and pray that things improve for us tomorrow as well as you all! I am thinking of you all!

Praying so hard for everyone that is struggling with this emotional rollercoaster. Thankfully we all have each other to lean on and talk to.

AFM - had my u/s today and lining measured 6.14. So we are set to rescan on Monday and see how I progress. It's just a waiting game right now, I guess.

Leora-blame it on something else all together. Like migranes and you have to go in for monitoring or cat scans, or severe back pain so you are getting a cortizone shots...or allergy testing/shots (and you can say the drs want you to stay later to make sure you dont have a reaction the first month then after that you can get them and be to work on time). Im praying this one little embie will be nice and snuggly for you.

akdelp-im saying lots of prayers for you. fingers crossed the your little one is in there growing big and strong.

we-i admire your courage. I was always so bitter about pregnant women...I still am when they are naturally pregnant. my best friend didnt tell me she was pregnant for 3 months because she didnt want me to hurt inside. I have always told everyone at work, but Im a teacher so it is not competative and I have to explain why im gone to serbia for weeks at a time too. Im trying to think of advice but i cant imagine your pain. maybe a mini vacation. im still praying God gives you strength...even though you already have a ton!

AFM: Dh has been in austria for 2 weeks and comes home on the 28. I cant wait! im so glad that i had a natural AF. I go in next week for all b/w and hysterogram (sp). Hopefully all will be well and i will be left waiting for AF in november. Serbian dr want to do bcp, lupron protocol...im guessing i'll do progestrone too. She never gives me a direct answer...are all RE's so vague about details?!? Im lurking and praying for you all a lot!

AdKelp, thinking of you. I really hope your re is wrong. Saying prayers for you.

Maria, I'm sorry you were faced with the difficulty of someone elses joy while your heart is breaking. We are all here for you.

Lauren, tell those ovaries to get busy. How frustrating! Will your cycle get cancelled?

Leorira, tough call with the job thing. I'm in the same boat. Nobody at work knows. I start work at 7:20am so getting to the ckinic before is not an option. I just say I have a dr appt and go. It was a problem last time during our fresh cycle but I didnt really care. The FET is so much easier so the dr visits are less.

AFM-I'm fine. The spotting has stopped and all I see is very faint brown on the tissue. I am def crampy, dizzy, dont have an appetite, am super gassy, and had a huge headache today. My sleep is different too. Hpt continues to look good and is getting darker. My beta is sunday morning and I will get the results later that day.

Goodnight from rainy Seattle!

Leora: oh yes they were good movies too. Im with the other ladies, can you try saying you have another appointment or you will be a bit late because you are waiting for a service provider or utilities provider? Its really stressful isnt it.

Akdelp: I cant imagine what you are going through. Im hoping that the fact you saw your little one yesterday means things are ok. Please tell me your dh is home now? If not can you ask someone else to come over? Being on your own is not good at this time.

Lyd10: I know things can go nuts after the d&c but the hospital said to meaf can also come on time. I was two weeks on thurs and I thin you were well over a week ahead of me time wise?

Blessed: I hope you managed to get some sleep. And i hope dh ges you a bit better today. The older I get im afraid more I believe the whole women are from venus and men from mars. It often amazes me that my girlfriends can finish my sentances and know what im trying to explain. And hhoe dh and male friends have no clue what I mean whnn I tell them the same things. So just go gently on yourse
Kala: i hope you get some answers
Blue: im glad to hear the spotti g has stopped. Roll on tomorrow

Afm: have just had a cal that my uncle who was also my go father has passed away. It was his birthday and he o ly turned 66. So today I will continue to light candles for everyone and keep you allin my thoughts

We- Continued prayers for you. I share some of your ladies stories with DH. He asked about you last night. He's so happy I have found this place for extra support. We may have a while to go before we can start IVF but this has been great for me!

Akdelp- Praying for you! I'm hoping your RE is wrong and everything is ok! Can't believe you haven't heard anything yet. I'd be on pins and needles too! (HUGS)

Leora- Hope everything goes well with work. With my DH's job here in Germany (totally different from being on tanks) they have to schedule a month in advance on days/hrs they work and when they are off. Love it though but sometimes it can be difficult with something pops up. So sometimes we have to fib! Do what you need to do!

Lauren- Come on follies and grow, grow, grow!!

Blue- So glad the spotting has stopped! Can't wait to hear tomorrows Beta results!

Ninde- I'm so sorry for your loss. He was still so young. Many prayers.

This seems to be a rough time on the boards. I'm praying for all of you during this time. I pray for peace for you and your DH's.

AFM- This wait is really bothering me. I'm so glad I have found all of you but I wish I was joining all of you in the IVF process. It will be sometime late next year. I'm just ready to jump in full force and begin.

Akelp - praying for the best news today!

Julia - keep those follicles growing!

neffe - when is the transfer?

Blue - good news. What a relief and can't wait to hear your beta numbers tomorrow. Our symptoms sound similar :)

AFM - called my nurse and begged her to let me come in for another beta test today. I can't wait until Tues, not with my history. Hope to get the results later today.

Gina-i know exactly what you mean about waiting. I'm the worst when it comes to something I really want. Patience is not my strong point and all of this sure helps one learn it!

Akdelp- I would be exactly as you are right now, I don't understand why they're not acting faster?! Everything for a reason but dang! I guess when I get my md license I can make those decisions. :wink: I'm praying for you, I truly hope God shows
you just how strong He is thru this trying time. Don't tell God how big your mountain is, tell your mountain how big your God is.
Leora, what a perplexing dilemma, I'm an active member of A.A. so I can't really say go ahead and fib, that's all I did for years so I won't condone that, do what your heart leads you to do! I'm fascinated that you live in israel!DH and I plan to visit there at some point. Are you military or there bc of work?

Lauren- I pray that your follies shock you and triple in amount and size! I feel like stress could have a negative effect on our bodies. I've stressed so much before that AF didn't cine until later as a result, so I know it can happen! Do I have any stress relieving tactics you could look into?

Blue- definitely keep us posted! I'll be stalking the boards for an update! Prayers for you.

have a great day girls, praying for all of us!

bodie-- my transfer is scheduled for Nov 2

Leora-- I think I took 8mg last time and my lining was barely good enough. RE requires a 7 for lining. So this time I take 12 mg. My lining is 9.1 now and I am still 10 days away from transfer. Has your lining always been good for you FETs? I think my transfer will be on CD22. But AF came late so it should have been CD26.

Just realized that I wont have enough Estrace to continue 12mg until my transfer. I really hope they can cut it down a bit so I don't have to refill it. If my lining is already good enough, I don't understand why I have to continue on such a high dose anyway, but RE called yesterday and said I am suppose to continue my meds on transfer day.

I know someone asked me how much CoQ10 I was taking, when I was reading the boards on my phone yesterday but now I can't find the post again to know who to address!

I started by taking 600 mg a day for a few weeks, then 400 for a few weeks, and then went down to 200 mg a day for about 2 months prior to my last stimulation cycle. Then I went off it for a little while, and then started taking 200 mg a day again before starting the FET and now I'm just continuing to take it because I figure it can't hurt! I also take 4000 mg of folic acid a day and fish oil, plus my pre-natal. Thats my recipe :)
