Leora- Congrats on being PUPO!! Sending lots of wishes!!

Hope everyone else is doing well!!

AFM---Well still no AF so I emailed my doctors yesterday
There words were:

: You should come to the office either tomorrow or Friday for an ultrasound and blood test. It might be that you won’t have a period and we can start your estrogen without it. Do not stop your lupron. You will actually stay on it but at a lower dose throughout your cycle.
Please call and set up an appointment .

I will feel kinda weird starting this cycle without a period before hand... What is my start date? Confused! Should I just tell him to wait on this cycle until I get a normal period or continue on? They are ordering me more Lupron since I finished the last of it today. Going in tomorrow for blood test & Ultrasound. (I did POAS and it was NOT Pregnant (digital.. I wanted to get ride of it anyways...) Any ideas or suggestions?? thanks
Good Luck to ALL!

Ninde- APA is the American Pool Association. Last 5 teams out of the 6 teams that won enough to go to Vegas came from this area. The winners get $ 25,000.00 . It would be worth doing if this IVF doesn't work. We enjoy playing & we are good. :)

Leora congrats on being PUPO

Lauren319 you are not fat and you embies cannot fall out!!! my RE explained to me that when an embie is placed in the uterus its like putting a grain of rice between two pieces of toast with a thick coat of peanut butter. Hang in there...

Hope you and I both have ultrasounds tomorrow so good luck and let us know as soon as you can how many you have cooking in there :)

Amanda I totally hear ya on the nausea...even on Zofran I am still nauseous but thankfully not constantly throwing up

Lauren319-Hang tight, hun! My dr always tells me it is related to implantation. I had it exactly on 7dpt just like yours and it was bfp. My m/c had nothing to do with bleeding and cramping. Have you POAS? Sorry if I don't remember!

I had a post all written up last night but the site kept telling me it was offline. I copied it, but needed to go to bed. So, never mind all of that!

Leora- Congrats on being PUPO!

Patricia- The recipe sounds divine! Can't wait to try it! What is caster sugar? Is it regular white sugar?

Kynlee- You will be fine. The shots are scary at first but it will be alright. Who will be helping you with the shots? My dh always gave me mine.

Anton- Thanks for the link. That was very interesting.

Christy- Good luck with the DM. Your time with Belles sounds lovely.

Cyn- The only reason my clinic would make me have a period before starting is if I had any lining built up. They made sure it was clear before building it back up.

Amanda- Shooting pool is always fun! I'm jealous that you and dh get to do that so much. It would be great for you to join the APA.

Sorry for anyone I have missed. I'm not feeling well so I'm a bit brain dead today.

AFM- I had a whopper of a headache today. I'm bummed because I really wanted to get back into my training. I've taken this week off to recover from the race. I ended up feeling crummy today and stayed home from work. Not much going on here. Anyone got tips for dealing with achilles tendonitis? I'm self diagnosing but have had constant trouble with my right ankle during training. I sprained my right ankle last summer and deal with constant tightness in it. I'm really having a hard time with the achilles being tight and painful.

As for my cycle, my periods are getting lighter and lighter. This was my 2nd cycle post chemical pg. I have some super light spotting still but as for bleeding, not much. I had cramping and light bleeding on Sunday and then it started dwindling right away. I'm not sure what to think of that. Maybe my training is making it lighter? I won't complain because I have had more than my fair share of super heavy periods. I've also had a lot of cramping which is worrisome. Hopefully my endometriosis is not flaring up.

I'm planning on starting some supplements soon to start prepping for our summer attempt.

Have a good night!

blue - I have POAS and it was positive, but I had an HCG booster on Sunday, so it may be false. They want me to come in on Saturday instead of Sunday now for my beta.

Kynlee - the shots aren't SO bad - just worse than the sub-q shots we usually do. Did they say why?

Patricia - that recipe sounds so good - but so deadly! :D I'm so glad you are feeling better after your therapy session and due date. For me, people who find out we are trying again "so soon" always say "well, you know you can never replace the boys". Yes OF COURSE. The babies we lost will always be our babies and we'll always miss them. But I still want that baby in my arms and that's why I'm trying again.

Christy - that sleepover with Belle sounds soooo fun! I want to be a little girl so I can come too!

HopeThisWorksM - today's the day! Let us know how the u/s goes ASAP - I'll be stalking!

Lydia - they don't know if it was the stimming too long, or just something wrong with this batch of sperm (we have super severe MFI - about a dozen sperm in each sample). We'll see....

Lauren - that's exactly what my doctor said -- "you've had perfect IVF cycles in the past, but horrible pregnancies. Maybe this time will be a horrible IVF cycle, but a great pregnancy". Yeah, maybe. Or just another BFN for me... I'm so sorry about your spotting! I hope it's nothing! 7dp5dt is late enough to get a 'good' BFP -- when was your last booster shot? I really hope this is it! If you are too close to the booster, wouldn't the blood test also be 'tainted'?

Amanda - when is your beta? I'm so impressed you play pool -- I play "try not to shove the stick into the table, because that makes people angry" when others are playing pool :D

Cyn - the blood test will show where you are in your cycle. You don't need a period to start an IVF cycle - but you need your hormones and uterine lining to THINK you just had a period. As I understand, sometimes the Lupron supresses so much taht you don't get a period. I hope the results are good and you are cleared to start!

Nicole - maybe you should see someone about your ankle. Can you see a sports person, or a trainer? Weird that your period was so light - but lucky!

AFM - I'm feeling relaxed. On Wednesday afternoon, when we got the news that only 1 fertilized, I was soooo heartbroken and devastated. Now that we've transferred our one embryo, I'm feeling relaxed. I'm not feeling hopeful, but I'm feeling relaxed, which is okay.

I made an appt with our doctor for the day after our beta. If the beta is positive, I'll cancel it, but if not, I'll really want that appt.

I asked him yesterday if we can do another fresh right away. He said we'll have to discuss that. I hope he says yes.

I'm also super happy that he said to do my beta at 14"dpo" -- -I would have done it then anyway - but at least he is supportive of that! :D

Blueeyedreamer- My Friend from work is going to give me my shots Mon- thursday My niece (she is 34 lol) will be giving me them on Friday and DH will do them on Sat and Sunday :) My DH has weird hours and I need to make sure I stay about the same time so I figured this is the best way to keep me on schedule :) I am super nervous if I go in the wrong spot but Ill be getting training on it Thursday... ;) Wish I could hire a nurse to give me them...

Leora- ARe you asking Why I have to do the shots? If so My re said its new protocol at the clinic that they are finding better results with the shots then the cream... My last FET I did the suppositories but she said they dont do those any longer for FET's.. :( If its going to get me closer to my dream then I will have to deal with it... I went on You tube to check out some of the videos on it so that helped... I am praying for your BFP :)

AFM- Busy weekend ahead... I organized a donation thing for a girl that has nothing and just had a baby.. I posted it on FB and got a overwhelming amount of people that have donated used and new stuff I have about 4 carloads of stuff to bring to the Church way more then I expected but God works in Miraclous ways :) I am sure she will be over the Moon when she gets everything :) Then Saturday I have updo's to do for a Wedding, Dinner date with Husband tomorrow night.. And Sunday I plan on planting some flowers in my front yard... And of course I will fit my Crocheting in somewhere :) Hope everyone has a great weekend :)
