Good morning everyone~ I only have a minute because I want to take advantage of my free time while my son is in preschool. Just had to comment on the waxing. I did lasering (only left a small patch) and I love it. Gone for good (mostly). Even did my armpits. What little growth that comes back, I definitely prefer sugaring over waxing. Much nicer to my skin. I'm very anti-hair.

I was so sad and discouraged yesterday. The reality of possibly not having another baby is starting to catch up with me. I've always thought it would eventually happen but now I'm not so sure. My DH has been 100% anti-adoption but I was a little excited yesterday when I mentioned the possibility of maybe getting a girl from India (he's indian) and he said he would think about it. Gave me a little hope.

Still hoping this cycle works and we have our own baby in 9 months. Fingers crossed.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Hi Jayne - just noticed that you are from san diego. me too. what clinic to you go to? I go to IGO. i am also trying for #2 and its proving to be a battle. we did 3 tries this past year and all failed in various ways. And i even weaned my DS early so as to get going again.
Its been 4 weeks since my D&C and still no period. i am waiting for it to start the next cycle. my doc says that's normal to take that long - could be another couple of weeks. cant believe its taking this long.
i am also coming to terms with the fact that if this next cycle doesnt work my DS might be the only child. i am turning 40 in a month and i ve been feeling old. my body aches in various ways and work is so busy. i definitely have it in me for one more try - it will be round 6 for us - but not sure i'll keep going after that. if we have frosties then i'll have to give them a try - that will be #7, but if not - i might just call it quits.

LYD - Thinking of you and hoping AF comes soon and you'll be on your way.

Jayne - Continuing to send you lots of good vibes that this cycle will be a success and that your embryos are snuggling in tight.

JenMink - So sorry to here about the accident. Your 2ww symptoms sound very promising…good luck!!

Blessed - Hope you had an easy and successful transfer…thinking of you and sending lots of luck your way.

Leora - I hope you have reason to start thinking of baby names again soon, too!

amanda - Lots of good vibes that something is sticking and that you'll have great news soon.

Julia - French onion soup sounds delicious…enjoy.

Tomorrow bright and early I go in for ER. I am so anxious. I have such a hard time staying positive…I always start off with so much positive energy, but as things progress and don't go perfectly, my optimism slowly dwindles. I guess it's good to have realistic expectations - I have never had the experience of being surprised by a negative beta, but I also wish so hard this could be the time things ends differently. It is really hard to not think this cycle will end the same as my last fresh IVF since my response has been similar (nicely rising E2 followed by E2 that doesn't do much such that my E2 becomes really inconsistent with my follicle growth, also 2 dominant follicles). My E2 is even lower this time and I think I might get fewer eggs which isn't so good since this time I am really hoping to attempt a day 5 transfer. I really hope I have some good news to report next time I write!

Sorry gals, but I need to vent right now. I just got the tears under control. I'm at work...I know, bad for monitoring forums, but whatever. A co-worker brought her new baby in to show her off to all of us which is fine...she's cute and very sweet and just absolutely perfect. This woman knows my situation and is always very supportive.

Next thing I know another women from a different department comes walzing thru the door to my office w/ her new baby. So they proceed to have a 10 minute ooh and ahh session over each other's bundles and I'm sitting there just thinking are you kidding me?! I just got up and went to my private restroom before the tears came. I could handle one baby, but 2 in my small office w/ all the "oh she's sleeping thru the night now and wow look how much hair she has"...I couldn't take it.

When I came back a few minutes later, the other woman whom I don't know well at all says "does this make you want to have a baby?!" I simply said, "a little bit" and tried to smile. I excused myself from my own office saying that I needed to go to a meeting and just left.

Pinkboots- A big (((HUGS))) to you! It can be so hard being around babies for me too. I do have one son but I still get choked up about it. Our best friends have a baby and it was hard being around him at first but it doesn't bother me any more.

Even though she didn't know what you are going through, I think it's rude of her to say that. That's like when people would always ask Dh and I are we having more. If they only knew......

Thanks, Gina. I really appreciate your kind words. It's just so frustrating. 3 of my very close friends have all gotten pregnant and had their babies (all girls which is my dream) since we've started trying. Now the gal I work out with every day is pregnant and of course she's so excited, but also tries not to monopolize the conversation about all things pregnancy. As so many of us know, it's so hard to be surrounded by pregnant women - ones who aren't even trying, ones who don't take care of the kids they have, ones who just don't seem to deserve the gift.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for knowing exactly what to say to make me feel better. :-)

Love that I can pop on to this forum anytime and find a woman with the exact thoughts, symptoms, sadness, hope... Such a nice support group. Thank you.

LYD~ So glad you reached out. I go to San Diego Fertility Clinic. One of my friends went to IGO and she was happy (got pregnant). It sounds like we're so similar. If this cycle doesn't work, I will try only one more time too. I'm starting to feel unhealthy on all of these hormones. I am blessed with a beautiful son and I don't want to keep pushing myself. I am starting to get a little excited about possibly adopting a foreign baby. That is a new energy/idea for us. I live in Encinitas.

Rosie~ best thoughts for lots of healthy and mature eggs tomorrow.

Pinkboots~ I get it. I was just shopping next to a mom who was grumpy and ignoring her two kids. If she only knew how lucky she was to have them...

Jen~ hope your back cramping is a good sign bc I'm having some too. Glad you were OK in the car crash. Geez. What stress.

Leora~ your responses always make me laugh. Looking forward to hearing the results of your SnS after your 3 (4shhh) tablets. What if they see the tablet with the ultrasound?

Amanda~ I really hope your HPT is + soon. The wait for the urine to saturate that dang stick is agony.

Julia~ how is my same day embryo transfer buddy hanging in there? French onion soup? I didn't do bedrest so I made some chili yesterday. Yum. I've been thinking of you.

Sunshine~good luck with the turkey. 60$ for groceries. Wow. You did well.

Blessed~stick embies stick! good luck.

AFM~ boobs are sore. I like it.

Jayne- I'm hanging in there. My boobs are killing me and I don't like it lol. Why do u like it? are you thinking it means preg? Og I hope so. If that's the case I'm super mega preg! The clinic had me come in today thinking I might be ohss but I'm in the clear. Don't go back now till the 14th. For beta. God help me. How are u aside from the breast pain?

Pink- I'm so sorry you had to go thru that honey. I know that was painful.

Evening ladies

Amanda: you must stand a very good chance with 4. I really hope so :D

Julia: take as much rest as you can. And I know the wait is awful.that's great you dont have ohss

Maria: how are you doing? Please forgive my ignorance but will you have to use the algebra in your work?

Blessed: congratulations :D How are you feeling?

Pinkboots: oh what an awful experience for you. Its horrible then when someone makes a comment that they dont even think through, she had no clue about your life and what your hopes and dreams are around children. I. Really sorry

Jayne: oh I chuckled about your boobs. How aareyou doing? I dont think I know sugaring? I have had some lasering done on my lip and think its brilliant

Lyd10: the wait for af is totally crap isnt it. I thoughtit might be coing last week because I was so irritable but nope. I didnt realize you had already done 5 ivfs, you are really strong

Rose: the very very best of luck tomorrow. Crossing my fingers and toes for a 5 day transfer :-)

Sunshine: go easy with that bowling ball!

Afm: long day today 12 hours but thankfully better tomorrow. Like lyd if anyone feels like doing the af dance that would be great :-)

Ninde & Lyd-doing the AF dance for you.

Ninde-I won't really use the Algebra in my job although to calculate IV drip rates the old fashioned way you do use algebraic equations. But no a days we have IV pumps that calculate everything for you but fo the purposes of exams they make you calculate everything out by hand. The issue is that to start the nursing bridge program which will allow me to get credit for my current nursing license they are going to make me take a college math entrance exam. This is what I am currently reviewing for.

amanda-- looks like a positive to me! Congrats!

Blessed-- glad to hear your transfer went well. I was hoping we would get our BFPs together but I will just be a month behind you.

AFM-- finished Provera two days ago and I started spotting this afternoon. AF will probably come Saturday. I am guessing baseline u/s and bw Monday or Tuesday and then we go from there. RE recommended Viagra vaginally, but said it costs $500. I am not sure I am willing to spend $500, maybe I should just try a lower dose of Estrace first. I don't know what to do. This FET wiped our saving so more expenses is not really an option.
