Lyd- woo hoo! Congrats, you are PUPO! So, when will you start POASing? Do you do it everyday? I could totally see myself doing that everyday...Yesterday was the first day that I haven't done it, but I guess it's ok since I got my blood test. I still haven't been back to the store to buy more, so I'm totally out of them anyway. And on the baby aspirin, my clinic has never recommended that, but that may be because I can't take any type of aspirin, ever, since my stomach surgery last year. I can only take Tylenol type stuff and so that wouldn't work the same. Now that I'm thinking about it, my friend that went to the same clinic as me never mentioned being on aspirin, however, I don't think any 1 clinic has all of the answers. If it is something that sounds like it could work, then totally do it.
Ninde- So, you didn't like the Sherlock movie? We saw it last night and we actually enjoyed it. I also want to see the Mission Impossible movie, but I haven't seen the first few, so I'm trying to figure out when to watch those so I can go see the newest one. I really don't like Tom Cruise, I don't not like him, but I don't get all goo goo over him like a lot of people do, but I think he's a good actor. My favorite actor of all times is Denzel Washington.
Neffi- Don't lose hope, some show negative until their beta day....I've seen some get a positive super early and then some super late. It's crazy!
Bonnie- I've read that extreme thirst can be an early sign of pregnancy. I can't get enough to drink either. So I've forgotten, are you on PIO shots? and estrogen patches? What is crazy about this IVF journey is that we are so overly aware of everything our body is doing throughout this whole process, from when we are stimming all of the way to our beta's. You can drive yourself crazy with all of it. I would say to keep a diary of your symptoms, and realize that some of them could totally mean you are pregnant and some of them may just be your body doing weird stuff- who knows. AND, you will never know, even if you get a positive, you'll never know if that was your body reacting to being pregnant or if that was just your body being your body.
Gina- I was sorta diagnosed with PCOS, but it was over a year ago. We are doing the IVF because my tubes are tied(17 years ago) and my husband has a low sperm count, not super low, but low enough to where they said that it would be a waste of money to get my tubes untied. That was a different doctor that reviewed that. I think my clinic does a pretty standard protocol regardless of your issue, they just maybe adjust the dosages. Then, if you have to go to a second cycle, then they go more agressive.
AFM- I'm finishing up my baking this morning. We (DH, DS, DS) are meeting my ex in laws and ex husband for a lunch down on the riverwalk here in San Antonio. It's a yearly thing that they come down to my neck of the woods and we exchange Christmas gifts and hang out. My ex in laws LOVE my current DH and he enjoys being around them. So, as part of their Christmas gift, I baked some lemon squares, brown sugar squares and fudge. I'll have to post some of the recipes later. Anyways, the buzzer on the stove is beeping at me, so I better run. You guys have a great weekend!
