Blue, just reading about your day made me tired :)

How are you guys so good at losing weight? Do you use a program? I always try to lose 5-10lb but I have no discipline to count calories.

Lyd: its completely understandable that you are freaking out. I hooe your ultrasound today puts your mind at rest. My mum didnt know she was having usntwinsnuntil 6 weeks before because she had no bad symptoms (she knew she was
pregnant just thought it was one) so it doesn't mean there is something wrong. Also your cold will make you feel worse. Try some breathing and allow your breath support you.mits an anxious time. Good luck today

Nicole: you sound exhausted. It s a fine line between pushing yourself and doing too much. You are amazing to push through with all of this but try and take it a bit easier - if thats possible? Would you have time to get a massage to help your body?

AlwaysAngel- the lab I was using had a "quality" issue with the air/pressure system. The air wasn't being filtered (and was being drawn from the parking ramp) and it was not good for a lot of people. They offered free cycles to all of us who would have been impacted by thier error. Still doesn't help that we lost two...

Leorira11 - you know, we thought long and hard about what we should do. I even talked, at great lengths, to the lad director about her thoughts. They won't outwardly admit fault but in order for us to get our money back, we have to use all of our eggs. Bull crap when it was thier error! So, that is kind of where I am at. Kind of.

Ninde - Thanks!

AFM - AF arrived in full force. Got my schedule. I will do a 5 day FET on 2/13. I am being very cautious with this one, knowing aout the issues in the lab. God will let it be if it is meant to be....Have a great day ladies!!!

Hi ladies,

There are so many people on this board, but I think I'm in the right spot...? Any one else doing their cycle in February?
I just started Lupron for a fresh cycle; trying for #2! It feels so amazing and surreal to say that.

Supergenius-good to have you! congrats on starting lupron...how exciting!!

Kerri-I dont understand. Are you doing another FET? Why dont you demand that they do a free fresh cycle for free since you embies were compromised. Im so sorry you have to go through all this.

Nicole-Im a teacher too and it seems like some days never end. Make sure you rest rest rest. Take a sick day if you need to a take care of yourself.

Lyd-Im praying for you. I hope you get to see your two beautiful beans today!!!

Felicia-congrats on your beautiful baby boy growing in your belly that is soooo exciting!!!!

Gina-Im so glad you are making progress towards starting your cycle. Last time I used Shlafts and this time I used The Apothecary Shop out of Pheonix. Arent you in Europe? Meds are so much cheaper in Serbia and you dont need an Rx. Good luck.

Anton-Bahahahaha...you are so funny. Yea, 1200 sq ft is way to small especially when we are dealing with a wheelchair. You crack me up. I hope all works out and you get the job!

AFM-I still need to email Serbian RE and see if it is worth transferring the last 2 or should we do a fresh cycle. Now Im wondering if we had lab issues. Its amazing how everyday I end up asking myself what went wrong. I feel like I need to give those last two embies a chance but it is just so much work going to Serbia. I wonder if we should transfer fresh with frozen. I think I read about that online. DH did really bad in Italy now he is off to race in Spain. I hope he does better so all this single momminess is worth it. Happy weekend ladies!!

Well I figured after playing phone tag with my IVF coordinator, the best way to stay in contact is to just give her my work number, although my boss doesn't know. lol I told dh tonight that it was perfect b/c today I spend the afternoon on the phone with customers so when she called in I was connected instantly. My plan is to always treat my coordinator like a customer while I'm at work so I can run to the stockroom to have a conversation on the days my boss is there. :lol: Anyway she wanted to confirm that my RE did agree it would be good to go ahead and start the CoQ10 meds as soon as my next cycle starts. Sometime mid April dh and I will come in for more screening to rule out any possible infectious diseases that even I didn't know about. (I only have thyroiditis and my doctor says my killer antibodies tend to fight off everything- even the good cells, but other then that I am very healthy). Apparently this is routine for the program, and the screening is all paid out of pocket. Get this, it expires in 6 months so.... if we test too early and if one of my cycles was cancelled THEN we would have to go through the screening all over again. Definately don't want that, already a pincushion as it is!

With all the screening, I was trying to get everything done over Spring Break (mid March) just for dh's convenience with working his 2 jobs more then anything, I guess i just need a timeline to help make everything come together! Let's see there's the IVF Attain orientation class, the Thyroid level check in March, then dh's S/A (sperm), and now I'm being told to wait until April for the infectious disease screening test since it expires in 6 months...I was trying to get the class/testing done in one week but I don't see that happening. All I know is to call them when AF shows herself in March and maybe by then everything else will fall into place, who knows?

Have to head to the gym in a few but wanted to jump in to say hi.

Lyd- I'm happy you have one healthy little one in there. I'm sorry about baby #2.

Ninde- This will by my 3rd half marathon. I've also done a full marathon but have no interest in doing that again. Yes, I am exhausted but I do take a break when I can.

Others, I will check in later tonight.

I am hoping my training session goes well. He usually kicks my butt. I had a great run last night. It was my best so far.

Lyd-Im so sorry for your loss....it is so bittersweet. Thank God for your little sweet baby growing big and strong though! Your mother's intruition is already very strong, always trust it.

Ninde-He fell and then finished 14th. This is his first year on the U.S. Paralympic team so he really needs to impress his coaches. It has been a hard season because he hurt is shoulder last month. He is on his way to Spain now...hopefully things will go better there.

I think I just lost my best friend of 24 years. She has been having so many issues lately and doesnt return my phone calls for up to 5 months at a time. Any time I put my DD first, she calls me selfish and doesnt understand what it is like to be a single mom. She is still in school and has a boyfriend. But Im tired of being treated so badly...so Im done. I have to put my child first no matter what. Nobody really understands what I go through. It is so frustrating.
