Cyn, apparently my mind runs 90 miles per minute but I meant to tell you thank you for the support too. :D Everyone here has made me feel like I'm going to get through this!

Leora, Kudos on the list, it really looks cleaned up sooo much better...Thanks so much for doing that! Yes dh and I do go camping alot but never "shot up" in the woods lol. I think the coyates down here would be enough to keep me from doing that. :lol: But major ouuuuch on the jumbo needle that had to really feel good going in NOT! Anyway I hope dh's test come back ok, definately keep us posted on dh too.

AFM: My day off and I really feel like doing absolutely nothing but must run errands before the collection agency comes after me...especially over my $11.83 lab bill that I seriously thought I had already paid. :shock: Ok this is why I let dh take care of the bills. However they like to nickel and dime us. Seriously I got a lab bill yesterday for $3.07...guess I should be glad at least dh's insurance took care of our "screening" we had done for the IVF Attain Program...but it does suck we are put on hold and the test are only good for 6 months. So I'm really really really hoping for July to bring me the green light - now all depending on the job market which is rather crappy right now.

Anna - I am so jealous, I want a natural BFP.. so Happy for you. That is Awesome and you have great numbers.

Leoria - I have tiny feet too and shop in the kids section sometimes. they have cheaper prices. I almost injected with a big needle once with menopure. I hadn't done menopure in a while and i had this big needle and was wondering how i was going to do that big shot in my tummy. then i remember.. thankfully. As for as the sex goes on what we transfer, i will probably transfer the boy first, just cus we would save so much in clothing. My poor boys have so many hammy downs. Really I couldn't care less. Part of me wants to just say transfer whatever. I also found out that the testing we did has a high error rate for sex selection so my boy might be a girl. Who know, who cares as long as it makes a baby.

Leora the list looks great thanks so much for doing it. So how many more days of stimming do you think you have? when is the tentative et? Also would you mind adding my last beta of 566 idk why I need it but it makes me feel like things are going in the right direction. I wish I had little feet but I don't. I wear a size 8 1/2. I could not see the image you posted though could you repost? I love shoes..lol I have little hands only wear a ring size of 4-5 but my feet a pretty big. Wish I could shop in the kid section.

Fun it is great seeing you here. July will be here so soon. Interesting on the high degree of error on the gender selection. I always thought it was 100% .

Lauren 319 so you will be doing an FET? How many embies do you have? Welcome back

Kynlee I too had an endo biopsy and I agree with the girls it really hurts so make sure to take something for the pain ahead of time. On the bright side it is over pretty quickly. Good luck

Nichole sorry about the fighting with DH. Mine and I fought a lot going through IF treatment. It is such a strain on a relationship but most people don't understand that. Feel free to vent anytime.

Globe where are you? everything ok?

Hope this works how are you feeling?

AFM going to Washington DC this weekend to visit a friend who just bought a new home. Will be doing lots of touristy stuff. So I am excited about that. Does anyone know if its ok to take Pepsid AC if you are preg? I usually take nexium but I ran out and my RE is in surgery so I left a message but my heartburn is kicking up and tums is not helping.

Leora-Thank you for agreeing to take over as list mistress. I will miss doing it after having done it for such a long time but I will still remain active on the board. I hope being the list brings you the same luck and satisfaction it has brought me. I wish you all the best.

Evening ladies

Cyn: good luck with the opk test

Lauren319: good to have you back

Christy: that sounds like a lovely evening.

Leora: its great you and david go back to your therapist. We will do one more cycle yes. Thank you for taking over the list. Could I ask you to add back in the category "I am a mother of an angel in heaven", I know my miscarriage was some time but ut that category on this board is the only place that that is recognized for me and its very relevant for and to me. Many thanks

Maria: thank you for all your work on the board. I know this is an ivf board but you have been a huge part of this board having set it up and even though you are pregnant i hope you still feel you have a very clear place here?

anna'shope: im not sure about the antacid. Is the heart burn bad?

Crashing again.

Ana - http://www.babyzone.com/pregnancy/is-it ... ancy_70485 says that Pepcid is Category B, so safe. Same category as acetaminophen.

Patricia - glad to hear your meeting went well. The info that your nurse went over does make sense, for the most part. I guess the only question I would have is, how do they know your progesterone levels are normal post-BFP if they don't test them?

Nicole - DH and I have had our troubles, which the IVF roller coaster made worse. I echo the sentiment that therapy helps. It's not a cure-all, but it does give you the tools to fix things if you both want to.

Leora - the big needle in the tummy? OWWWWWWWWWWWWWCH! Sometimes even those little needles hit the wrong spot and sting. Good for you for taking over as list mistress.

AFM - these twins have me every bit as big as a friend who is 26 weeks along. DH is also doing FABULOUS not drinking, which has done wonders for our relationship.

annashope- i take prilosec and that is fine, so as long as it has the same stuff in it, it is fine.

so I am on day 5 after the 7 day transfer and I am going nuts with worry. I had bloodwork yeaterday and my progesterone level was great, but my estrogen level was horrible, so they increased my dosage. So do other clinics seem to care about estrogen levels after transfer? I have been POASing and they are all negative. This is the earliest that I habe ever teated, but I am getting nervous that it didn't work. ugggg!! Today is 12 dpo, but no one seems to know much about a 7 day transfer. I feel like I should have a positive on the hpt if it worked. thoughts?

Lauren a 7 day transfer is unusual but at 12 dpo you might still be early. I mean look at me I thought I was having a period and the day my period started I poas and got a bfn but somehow 3 days later at my baseline appt found out I was pregnant. Which test are you using? FET's a notorious for being late implanters

Thank you girls for the advice on the pepcid. I ended up getting my Nexium refilled. However today has been rough...I threw out my back while picking up Paul and now I am in so much pain I can barely walk. Not sure what to do since I would usually take strong meds and use a heating pad but I don't think its ok. Ugh its always something..lol

LYD- WOOOHOOOOO!!!

Anna - you got pregnant naturally?! for real? I can't believe it! that's amazing!!

Yes, I'm doing an FET. We have 4 frozen embies, but I think we'll be transferring two (a boy and a girl). Is it weird that I'm choosing? I figure if I can...

Lauren, how exciting! Puppies are awesome.

Leora, thanks for updating the list. Will you add me to the waiting for ivf list? We will start again this summer. I would also like the angel list back.

Ninde, my dh was having a rough day. He does that occasionally and he gets moody. It blows over, we chat about it, and move on.

Afm, I'm in Missouri visiting my family. We flew in the morning. I'm exhausted! Looking forward to seeing old friends and lots of family.

omg anna, i just read your other post. are you ok? there's gotta be something you can take for your pain, no? Oddly enough, narcotics might actually be ok in dire situations.
