Kynlee – steal away! You should totally do it! Ugh. I agree, I’m going to be that crazy woman going to the OB every 2 weeks! Yikes!

Ninde – awesome news on the baseline! Ready, set, GO!!

Leora – great news on your U/s! Your RE sounds like such a nice guy! I hope you find an OB that you like, I had to meet with 4 different ones before I found the right fit for me! I’ll be exactly 7 weeks at my U/S next week! 6 more days to go….

Alwaysangel - I'm not sure! Sorry! Let me know what you find out...

alwaysangel- I think your OHSS will stay with you since you got pregnant, its all the hormones and I think it may go down some but from what I remember I think it will subside as you get alittle further along.. Since your body knows you are pregnant those hormones rise so that is why the ohss sticks around...I dont think it can harm the baby or Drs would cancel the cycle... You will be ok...

Ninde- woo hoo! Are you excited that everything looks great?

Leora- that is so exciting. At our clinic, they don't release us to regular OBGYN's until closer to the 10-12 week mark. Good luck on finding the high risk OBGYN that you will like. I'm so excited for you and David. This is so great!

Poco- I am so sorry to hear your news but hope you will lean into the support here on the board. Take the time to grieve and be angry and whatever other emotions you need to go through. We've all been through heartbreak on here, but also know that we understand that everyone experiences it differently.

Blueeyed- can't wait to hear the results of the egg retrieval!

Sorry that I missed people, been crazy at work and I haven't even been able to read the posts as much as I usually do. Good luck to all of those going through the cycles right now! I will get caught up...eventually. :lol:

AFM- got an email from my rockin' nurse this morning and our donor is ahead of schedule and we may be looking at the egg retrieval to happen on Monday! She has another appt on Friday, so we will know more then. I can't remember if I posted on Monday, but I had an appt Monday and my estrogen is great, they want to see it 200 or above and mine was 359 and so we will stick to the 4 patches a day plus the oral estrogen to keep that up and then they said my lining was beautiful. I'm getting really excited about the embryo transfer. I really feel like this is it, and I hope my feeling is correct, that this will be the time I get prego and stay prego!

Blue – 15 eggs is a great number!!! I hope the fert report is just as good! Rest up!

LauraN – Awesome news! You will be PUPO before you know it! Your lining and levels sound great too!

Tiger – That’s how the morning sickness started for me! Mint gum helped me a lot, try it.

Always – Great beta!!! I hope your ohss goes down soon….

Leora- So glad everything is going well!!!

Kynlee- I have been getting twinges and dull cramping in my uterus and my ovaries. I asked the nurse yesterday and she it’s said totally normal. Have you called your OB yet? How are you feeling, has the brown discharge stopped?

Amanda – Congrats on team blue! Love the name too!

Pocos- I know it is still early, but I’m glad your friend rein stilled some hope for you to give IVF another try.

Ninde – YAY for starting stims!! Let us know how day 1 goes, especially with all that mixing!

AFM – u/s yesterday went great! Baby is measuring at 7 weeks 2 days! HB was 146! He/she looked like a jellybean. So now I only get one more u/s which is next Tuesday…. what am I going to do? Also, at that appointment they will teach me how to taper off my meds. Then I am off to my OB, which I really wanted to try to find a new one.

My current OB didn’t even check her messages when I needed a hysteroscopy scheduled. I had to go to a hospital 2 hours away b/c I needed it done in a certain time frame. But I am calling around today and no one can see me but a PA … which I don’t mind but it is only a consult and not until the end of the month. Yesterday my RE said I would have an u/s by my OB at 10 weeks. What to do?

POCOS - I have no words, just know that I'm sending you hugs and support and that we're all here for you and understand what you are going through. Also what it means to cry so much you no longer have tears yet you feel like the saddest person ever. This process seems so unfair, and we've all been through it and know. Please believe that it does eventually happen. So many of us unfortunately succeed after many cycles. Use this time to gain more strength and courage for the next time. Miracles do happen and we would just love to witness yours asap.

Kynlee - I hope the discharge has subsided since the last time I wrote? Please don't be too worried - even if I know easier said than done - chances are really in your favor (and beanie's :) ) after seeing the HB.

Leora - love LOVE love hearing good news from you girl!!! This is it, with an unbelievable story to tell!A real miracle :D

Tiger - so happy for the way things went with telling your family and with eating those cupcakes...come to think of it I DO feel like eating one right now!!!! And we already had pizza after the U/S...

Always - okay. I have to say that I normally don't like to speculate but your betas and prgosterone may very much sound like twins. Take good care of this belly, mine has been gone for 3 days now and it went away at about this stage also during the first pregnancy (with OHSS too). Until then, to sleep better, try and use a pillow between the belly and the mattress - it's when the belly "falls" down over the ovary that it hurts the most, and if you only sleep on your back you will have lower bach pain because of the weight of this massive belly you carry:). I only drank water, no Gatorade, and now I'm okay.

Ninde - how did your baseline go today? have I missed it? Things proceeded fast today!

Blue - so happy for you girl!!! 15 little sauna lovers there, ready for some more action! Rest as much as you can I'll be praying for the best ever fert report for you tomorrow!

AFM -okay. I practically shook when it was my turn for an U/S. We saw a healthy sac with a HB, measuring right on time. We were relieved and happy behind words. We told to high risk it's been ages now since we got to hear good news. Over a year since our loss now. Then he moved the camera a bit and there was another sac. This one too small, yet with a HB. It is most probable that the little sac will absorb as it is abnormally small for this stage. But I am refraining from using the word "hope" because I give my respect also to this little one. We always wished we would have more than 1, and even now that we know we are not allowed to carry more than 1 at a time because of how things ended the last time, to say that I "hope" he will absorb doesn't feel right for me. We are happy, it's an unbelievable feeling. I was just so afraid for DH. I imagined him receiving either news and now I'm just so happy even if he's still worried and it takes him time to understand we have a reason to be happy. We are going to take it slowly and to try and stay calm. We are not going to tell anyone right now and when we do, who knows? Maybe there will be a cake involved? I love baking so much but didn't get to bake so many cakes since I started watching my weight when we took our break in April.

Sending love and blessings to all,
Kay

Blueeye- awesome egg count :) Cant wait to hear report tomorrow :)

Madamex- I have a u/s next weds then head to the ob on the 23rd for consult and hoping the 29th for a u.s I am going to push them on it....My re said my OB should give me a u/s at 10 weeks to but the lady I made appt with said 12 weeks, I am definitely not waiting four weeks lol As for taper meds please let me know what you are doing cause my RE said 8 weeks I talked her into refilling my progesterone and estrace for a few more weeks so she did but she said I could stop cold turkey I rather taper off so I would love some input :) Your bean has a beautiful heartbeat :) And yes the brown discharge has left thank god

Tiger: lol when is your next u/s? Thankfully headache now gone.

Kynlee: thanks. How are you feeling?

Leora; that's wonderful you are moving on.

Always: have you had ohs before?

LauraN: I am excited and trying to stay calm!! I really hope that this is your one. Its great your estrogen is so good. We dont use extra estrogen and I wonder why?

Nicole: wow I like your over achieving right ovary!! Go get lots of rest :D

Madam x: mixing was ok but im pretty sure I shouldnt take 20 mind to do it!!! I think our obs tend to wait til 12 weeks, well my clinic does, we have one with the clinic at 7 weeks and are sent off. But i think another clinic does 7 and 9 weeks then ob at 12. Im so glad you have a perfectly measuring little one.

Waiting: yes, had baseline and all seems to be good. Started stimming tonight. Gosh you got amazing news today. I think you said something beautiful when you said about respecting the very little one. I wouldn't presume to wish for you but i really hope all will be perfect for you.

Maria: hello there :-) how are you?

Afm: another moment of "what?!" earlier! Phoned my regular doctor to get my mri results of my hip. It showed early arthritis (primarily in the hip that has no pain!!!) And he went on to mention 2wo ovarian cysts!! I was like " no, I had an u/s this morning, there cant be cysts"!!! He named the type and said they generally disolve but he must have thought I was utterly mad!!

Hi ladies,
This board is really moving fast. I will have to try and catch up later today. As for me, still hanging in there. Went for my weekly appt in Tuesday and I am 1cm dilated. Contractions are still about 20-30 min apart sp no change there. Still working but I am managing to leave early everyday which is good. I am going to try and wrap everything up at work by tomorrow. I have a feeling the girls may be here pretty soon.

Ninde-how are you feeling today?

Blue-great ER numbers. I can't wait to hear all about you wonderful fert report.

Leora-love you u/s pic. I am so happy for you guys.

Dys-congrats on your BFP. I can't wait to hear all about your great Beta. Congratulations!!! I am so happy for you.

Everyone else I will try to do more personals later. Sending you all xoxo...
