Nicole- That's definately something to think about esp. if it's close to the lining, but last fall when I was last checked it wasn't so they proceeded. This Aunt flow is kicking my butt. I have until 9/23 with our 2.85IR locked in, but I told the surveyer we only have two weeks to get everything together but this rain is not helping me get anyone to come to our house. :roll:

Evening ladies,

Tiger: im so very sorry about your little one. I have heard about it before and i think its very sad. I dont think it means your second little one is at risk at all, but i can only imagine how confused and upset you are. I hope you can get some time to grieve your little one while his brother/sister thrives. I will hold you all in my thoughts tonight x

LauraN: wow, wow, wow - 23 fertilised is amazing!!! Congratulations :D

Christy: im really glad you can start in nov. How are you feeling now?

Nicole: thanks for the reassurance, im hoping fri is a really good story. New symptom today - feeling travel sick!! Im thrilled you got to freeze :D

Tohavefun: oh congratulations!!!

Kynlee: that's wonderful everything is so good with your little one!!

Nindine- thanks! I'm so relieved that beta doubled. How are you? Did you get a follie check?

Jayne- how are you doing? GL tomorrow at your follie check.

Tiger- thanks! my next beta is next week on Monday. They only do 3 betas then u/s week after that. I'm so sorry about the loss of the twin :( that must be so hard. With my 2nd pregnancy my RE thought that he seen a second sac but it never developed any further and my DD is fine :) H&H 9mo for you :)

blueeyed- yeyyy for frozen embie! This pregnancy for me is from one frozen blast :)

tohavefun- OMG how exciting! I know what you mean about the easy part, we are still in shock that this worked for us. We were convinced this is it for us.

Kynlee- yey for a perfect u/s! thats awesome!

LauraN- OMG 23 is great! All the best for your transfer!

AFM- I'm doing good will do a repeat BETA on Monday and then if all is well schedule a u/s for week after they do them around 7-8wks can't wait!

We - I keep you in my thoughts and prayers, can't believe that only in a few more hours your twin girls will be here! You gave them both such beautiful names! Can't wait to hear from you, very beautiful closure since your sad sad post a year ago when you started this thread. It gives the daily love and support you meant it would and for that I thank you.

Kynlee - fabulous news girl!

Dys - Congrats again! Waiting for you first U/S isn't going to be easy, but gonna be beautiful!

Tiger - When we had our first U/S last week there were two heat beats. One with a sac that measured right on time, the other just too small. We are actually not allowed to carry twins due to my past, but as I wrote last Wednesday, I can't bring myself to use the word "hope" that the other one won't keep going. But I can reassure you that this is very very common - called The Vanishing Twin Syndrome. This is for when it happens until week 12. Most women who didn't go through IVF won't even find out because what happens is that the other sac if it hasn't developed just absorbs in the womb, in most cases this doesn't even cause any bleeding. At this stage in pregnancy it means no risk to you other emby. Later in pregnancy it is also normal that one twin normally does a lot better than his/her sibling and then it carries totally different risks and when the water breaks for one it probably won't be long until it dos the same for the other one too. So right now I'm feeling sorry that you are confused and don't know where to place your feelings, but I am happy for you knowing that your other one has a healthy strong beating heart.

Ninde - I heard it from the best docs about the egg number - though it's likely you will get more follies by time of retrieval, quality over quantity. Everything that you're describing including travel sickness is okay for stimming. Can't wait to cheer you on!

POCOS - Kruger is more strict. We had 0% normal morphology and second time 1% according to Kruger. I think these are the results you should take seriously, and I think you should therefore only use ICSI because bad sperm morphology is the one thing ICSI helps against, since the bad morphology doesn't let the sperm penetrate normally into the egg and when they do they survive less - we tried without also, and it's a waste of your precious time. 2 times is normal not to succeed, try to stay with one clinic with good stats, helping them understand better this way due to gained experience what is the best protocol for you.

Madame - how are you doing?

Christy - Can't wait til November is hear and we all got to cheer you on! We've been waiting along with you.

LauraN - unbelievably amazing results! We transferred 3 both times we succeeded, we never made it with 2 but everybody's different and you may get fantastic fighters the way it sounds.

AFM - Patiently or not waiting for next U/S in a week. No olive today, yet:)
Me - 35 (found about APS after PTL)
DH - 34 (0% morph)
10/10 # 1 IVF (ICSI) - chemical

Ninde- Did you tell your Dr how you are feeling on these meds? Maybe the dose is too much for your body? try to rest if you can...

Dys24- Monday will be here before you know it ;) I hate all the waiting periods even in between the U/S it seems like it is forever...

We- Best of luck tonight, how exciting you are going to meet your princess tonight... You are all in my thoughts and prayers cant wait to see them :)

Kay- Love olives too, but I been craving beets lol Who would think beets, My Husband is looking at me like that is nasty but hey what my bean wants it gets :) So I went to the farmers market and bought some beets and steamed them and then made a italian potatoe salad with them so yummy ;)

This is the first time I've read this board. The first post, from We Have Hope, was so sad, but so inspiring. Then I went to the last page, and she is having her twin girls TONIGHT! How amazing, and what a blessing to have had all of these ladies support you every step of the way!!!

MadameX- I really need to talk to my boss about all of this. She just promoted me full-time Asst and I know my boss just finalized her divorce this week so I have been trying to get myself focussed but I know deep down I know my time is ticking, my IVF Attain contract ends on my 28th birthday, meaning I have less then 23 months to get 6 cycles in (right now) but the longer I wait the more I'll have to rush things later.

When I mentioned IVF to my pg coworker about trying to cycle in November and beating the blackout period, she was like what about me. I said of course your baby is priority, ugh I even told her sometimes I wish I could just give someone 30 grand but that would be too easy. My heart is there but I just dread starting all over completely again but I know waiting around hasn't gotten me anywhere. I know it only makes me more frustrated that we've had bends in the road but I'm more aggravated because I let circumstances with jobs get in the way! I came home tonight and dh was applying to more part-time jobs I got mad because it's something I could of had already done. I mean if he's worried about finding a third job shouldn't I be the one looking for a second job? I mean this job he was applying to was only 3 doors down from where I currently work I could easily apply there and dh was like no you shouldn't have to work two jobs. I said well you already do and it obviously it doesn't seem like that's good enough. I am aggravated because here I am letting jobs get in the way again and I know I'm lucky that at least I have a guy that wants to work BUT it shouldn't be what life is ALL about!

I'm also ill from talking to my pg coworker about her facebook account. She said she's worried that her boyfriend who is the father of her baby getting on her facebook account and finding out she has been talking to one of her ex's (an ex from 10 years ago) AND she found out last night he recently broke up with his own girlfriend. She said her man would be livid if he knew she was talking with her ex over facebook having a THREE hour conversation!! I said do you think he will find out, she said probably since he tends to read her messages and it would look like she's trying to hide something now if she went back and erased everything. She kept on talking about her ex... I said it sounds like there may be "feelings" between you and him. She said he is still crazy about me but I REMIND him that I'm with someone else now and having his baby. I told her he's lonely and you're out there setting yourself up for complete disaster. She said yes her boyfriend would be so jealous if he finds out... He got mad at her two weeks ago for talking with another ex., she was like it's not that I'm out having lunch with my exs it's just talking. I don't care what anybody says it's not a good mix to be talking with ex boyfriends when you're already in a relationship AND having his baby!!! Well tomorrow she finds out her baby's gender, AND I really really hope it's a boy just to make her mad! She just doesn't seem to have any common sense and I feel she's going to be homeless once again if she doesn't get her crap together. When her boyfriend proposed to her months back she turned him down because she was verbally abused from her first marriage. I'm dying to find out how she lost rights to her 4 yr old son, but all she will tells us she was homeless, but how can her ex gain rights if he was abusive, obviously something is not clicking. But the way she's behaving makes me think she's only asking for trouble! The real question is how do irresponsible people gain the right to have kids when they're obviously idiots?
