Been busy trying to visit with people before we leave. I will catch up on personals soon. Sound like lots of roller coasters here.
Just wanted to let you know that I POAS'd 3dp5dt (yeah Im a physco I know) 4dp5dt and today 5dp5dt and everytime it has been negative. I've starred it the test so long that my mind starts playing tricks on me and a line appears. Im going POAS crazy...they should officially call it an illness. Otherwise Im a mess from no Zyrtec and flonase for allergies and no steroid cream for eczema on my face. I pretty miserable and cant wait to go home soon! Thanks for the well wishes!! I wish all you the best!

Blue - i am so glad you had a bast in vegas! you needed that! the rides look terrifying to me - but i am scared to death of the rollercoaster and wont go near one - now that i am an adult and dont have to succumb to peer pressure :) ahh - the perks of being old :)

Jayne - i know what you mean about PMS and junk food - its like my body craves everything during the times of high progesterone. and its like my stomach forgets how to feel full even when it is stuffed to teh gills. rediculous. i know what you mean abut hormones - i worry a bit about connection between high E2 and cancer. urghhh. but what can we do. but you only have a few more cycles left before you can leave it all behind you! and the good thing is the hormones are elevated only during a relatively short period of time - maybe for 3 weeks or so - afterwards they drop down to normal range. and although we feel crappy because hormone changes are hard on psyche - the actual hit to the body is hopefully small. anywa - i am not a doc - but i am going with my theory.

Leora - with my ectopic it was methataxete as soon as they could see it in the tube - which was at about 6.5 weeks if i remember correctly. my HCG started with 20 at 14dpo and kept rising very slowly ( 70 hour doubling time) - the doc let it go for a while - but once he could see it on the u/s he did the meth shot that very same day.

Yes - i am 5 weeks today - thank you for noticing! i dont know if my siggie can fit a ticker anymore - something about too many characters. and i dont want to take out any of my 6 IVF results in case people have questions about my epxereinces.

As for the OHSS - in the ER i was told that my bloat does not technically qualify as OHSS. in order to be OHSS - even the first mild stage - the ovaries and cysts have to be greater than a certain size. mine were still below it. nevertheless i did gain over 10lb of water - so whatever you call it - its not the best experience. but i was monitored very closely during the stimms. and it was a perfect cycle from the egg quality and quantity perspective. we got our best emrbyos yet. and for my age there is really no other protocol to use - antagonist is way worse for my age. so the only other option was to freeze all. but at the time i was feeling perfectly fine. the water gain started after i got the positive HPT. but my water gain is thankfully down to 5.5lb this morning. so it is receding. now i am back to obsessing over how come i am not feeling more nauseous - and cant wait for my beta on thursday. i just hope it goes up appropriately!

Rosie - you are funny - compalining and being self-aware of it at the same time :) i also have those days when i am just in a crappy mood. especially if the house is a mess. we are lucky to have a clinic lady come once every two weeks and she is coming tomorrow - and i cannot wait for her arrival! why is it so hard to fins someone to clean your place on a regular basis if you are willing to pay them?

WE and Kala - i hope you get your positives soon! i kno whow you feel - i have stared at so many white strips - its the worst feeling at the bottom of your stomach.

Indigo - good luck on your beta!!!!

Happy New Year ladies!! :D

Leora- I am so sorry and frustrated that you have to go through all these. These things are not to play with or experiment. :evil: I would ask for a second opinion...even though I HOPE that provera does its magic on you! You guys definitely need to take a vacation and a cruise sounds wonderful. I hope you guys make it. ...as for religion interfering with personal matters...it sucks..! thankfully we don’t have to deal with this too! ...isn’t it enough that we have to go through all that infertility stress! I hope you guys figure it out soon.

Lyd- Huge Congratulations honey! I don’t remember telling you congrats and if I already did then you deserve to hear it again and again. :D I hope you feel better soon and start enjoying your pregnancy! When are we going to find out how many babies you carrying? How exciting!

Rosie- I am sorry you are having a crappy day. Tomorrow is going to be a lot better. Congrats on passing the 10 week pregnant! :D Focus on that and everything else will feel less important!

Ninde- I hope you lose the weight you want SOON and everything goes well for you! :D

Barbara- Glad everything is going well with your pregnancy! :D Keep up the good work girl!

Indigo- I am keeping my fingers crossed for a positive beta for you! :D/

Maria/we- Poas! Poas! May this be IT for you this time! ...the cruise ship looks amazing! I am sure you guys are going to have a hell of a time! and you sure deserve that. The only cruise I’ve been (ages agooooo!) was from Cyprus to Egypt and another one again from Cyprus to Israel (visiting Holy Land) 3 day trips. I am more of a get into the plane and get there kind of person 8) I LOVE travelling! :mrgreen: So far I’ve been to more than 15 countries and more than 30 places/towns. My list of travelling is endless! Of course I am still 37...and a half :lol: so I guess by the time my time is up I am going to visit a lot more places together with my DH and our children :wink: ...

Blueeyedreamer- Vegas baby! Vegas! sounds like you had a blast! Good for you honey! Vegas is definitely on my wish list. I Love extreme rides and I am the first one among our friends that will say Let’s Do That! ...you know, jump off a cliff or jump on a crazy ride. My best ever where the ones in Disney Land in Orlando/Florida and in Germany/Colone in a place called “Fantasia Land”...something like but Disneyland of a smaller scale. Adrenaline to the max! I love it! :mrgreen:

Sunshine- The program sound very good and I hope you guys are given the chance to go for it. I am also glad that your DH started seeing adoption as an option. All the best to you honey! :D

Jayne- I hear you! My opinion exactly...I am over the “genetic connection” idea. The minute you bring home a baby that baby is yours and your DH’s BY DEFAULT. End of story. :mrgreen: Good Luck with everything!

Amanda- Hey girl! April is not that far! Right! :wink: Every obstacle is just meant to be. Don’t fight it. Your BFP is there for you to get it in April. :D Good Luck!

Kerri- YAY for getting closer to your ER! :D Good luck girl!

Kala- is too early for a BFP! Hang in there! I hope you feel better tomorrow and keep up your PMA!

AFM....I’ll have to write about me tomorrow! No time now! ...is 20:30pm and I am watching a documentary of BBC on “Virtual Revolution” (I highly recommend it...if you like that kind of documentaries that is..) with DH while typing this and is going to finish now and then we are watching “THE HELP” so, got to go for now...

...and again, Happy New year ladies! ..as I posted on my Facebook wall, may this be the year that everyone’s wishes come true!!! And we girls share the same wish here! Babies! Babies! Babies! in our lives! :D

Baby dust to us all!!

Also, I don't think that the line is that faint. It's pretty easy to see and at 9dpo, it's a great line.

Hi LADIES!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ive been stalking some of my girls on here and I apologize that I have NOT posted in a long time...HOPE you all can forgive me?? DH and I have been exploring options while I have taken on a NEW job and have been VERY busy!!!

Hope everyone has had a FABULOUS new Year and is ready for some 2012 babies!!!!!!!!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Dh and I are attempting one more round of IVF...Prlly in MARCH, We decided to start taking vitamins like MACA, ROYAL JELLY etc...thought we would do all our best!!! To help improve egg health and sperm quality! We had a second opinion and really its just down to LUCK....The other RE suggested possibly doing a Flare protocol but everything else the same! IDK...DH and I decided after this last try we will prolly move onto DS....IUI at least then we can afford to do so! As you ladies know this is such an emotional roller coaster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have TONS of catching up to do and stalk some of my girls who have moved onto the Pregnant Board!!!

I cant say ENOUGH about you girls!!! I THANK each and EVERY one of you for being here and supporting me thru all Ive been thru!!!!!
