Patricia- lol I know I had been thinking about starting a new thread for days now and I finally broke down and did it. I will be posting here and Maria's thread too, of course it wouldn't be the same without dear friends!

Maria- Thank you and every now and then I'll send you a message too.

rypell- It's certainly not over yet, although dh almost had a stroke when he saw a large transaction today on our bank acct for IVF Attain bloodwork and my meds. I had found a dress to wear to my cousin's wedding tonight and showed it to him on my company's website, he said it's only 35.00 you should go ahead and get it...He's so sweet but he has no idea that if I get the dress new shoes would have to be purchased! lol oh the sacrifices we must make even over shoes! How are you little ones doing? I check up on you ladies over on the PAT quite often too.

AFM: As mentioned previously meds came this afternoon, but I'm a little perplexed since my lupron came in a plastic medicine container instead of a regular glass vial. Apparently my old pharmacy had gotten so many calls about the vials getting broken so they made it in a pamper resistant child-proof bottle? lol for anyone reading I like to hear your thoughts on that!

Christy - no idea about the plastic vials - but I'd love that! Soooooo many times, I've either crushed the glass into the medication (and had to throw it out and get a new vial) or into my thumb - ouch! I'm so excited for you to cycle! I hope this is your BFP!

I'll be stalking, like Ryann and Maria, for all the BFPs on here!

Leora- Yep that sounds like something that would happen to me too, it never fails when you're trying to administer meds something happens...Ha remember the time I was trying to figure out the Hcg trigger shot how many cc of saline solution to mix I later figured out it was 1cc of saline but that was not a fun night! I'm glad I have some stalkers out there, it's good we can count on one another to get us through rough patches and start once again. I know our rainbow babies are in the horizon!

Lupron begins October 4th so there is time to get this all together. Apparently the lupron vial was placed is in a "pill bottle". I took the lid off and turned it upsidedown and carefully tried to get the vial out but no it's in there good. So I'm thinking the glass vial was placed inside a plastic pill bottle to keep it from breaking. Looking inside the pill bottle there is this aluminum lid instead of the plastic tap so I'm thinking maybe I just leave it in the pill bottle and pierce that...Dh told me not to force it because he knows I'm so inquisitive so I placed the lupron back into the refrigerator for now! :D Also for this cycle: using gonal-F instead of follistim this cycle... My clinic is ordering Gonal-f from Freedom because the price is a little better...Learned instead of "the pen" we would use syringes because altough the pen is easier- I would get more medicine for my money. To support everything (instead of using those messy suppositories) I'm attempting progesterone injections AND going with Kynlee's advice to numb the injection site first...we will see how fun that is! DId you ladies out there who used progesterone shots administer them yourself in the thigh area or have dh give them in the rear?

crushing for sunshine. we are all here stocking you and wish you the best.
As for the gonal from experience being all oop. i would suggest buy the 450powder you end up geting 600iu after reconstitution. that was a big plus for me and cheaper than geting the pen like you said. bring on the rainbow babies.

Thank you NW, you've always given much support to me on this forum. How is your dh, is he still in the teaching field? It's been so hard staying in this line of work but today dh applied for a job up in Washington somewhere near Seattle yes talk about trading on coast off for another. I told him I would have to stay here with my embibabies if they gave him an interview that led to a job offer, but who can ever plan out the future? We have to take what we have and just go for it taking that chance to make something happen! :D I bet Kenneth is getting soooo big!

Thanks girl. Yes dh is still int he field infact last month finally he got a full time temp position at a community college with option of full time permanent after a yr if he likes it. WHo does that kind of offer. anyway so far he likes and looking forward to full time permanent come next academic yr. As for kenneth he is such a chuncky baby full of teeth in his mouth. You just wait for your time. you will never get enough of this lil blessing. Praying for that day to come for you. good luck dear. '
Well seattle i hear is opposite of florida.. that will be a change lol. But in this day and age i would say if he gets it full time with benefits and factor in cost of living go for it. Just take it one day at a time.

Wow NW that is wonderful, the college is offering him full time permanently after one year there, I know you must be relieved! Awwww Samuel is getting into solid foods now and at a fun age. I remember your birth story and I hope to follow it someday too. Right now dh is trying to get us on a budget, we're both not big spenders but I do eat out alot while I'm on the beachside 40 minutes from home,it's convenient but expensive about $12 for lunch each day can easily add up working full time. Our finances are set up on a financial planning "pie chart." Last night we made a quick stop for popcorn and a soft drink, while standing there checking out he said it's the last day of the month, tomorrow we'll start a brand new pie chart. I said but you're not setting a good example to me!

Pocos- So glad you are cycling with me. I heard you say they have you on a long lupron cycle. The clinic called this morning said Dr. K is still reviewing my chart said my chart is sitting on her desk among with 5 other girls...they want to start Lupron on Oct. 4th. She said she didn't order me enough Menupur so she has 5 vials reserved when I go for baseline on 10/18 I'll pick up more meds then. Menupur will start on 10/18 with all the stimming. I'm taking Gonal-F for this cycle something totally new but they tell me it's like apples to apples in comparison to Follistim. When is your tentative retrieval?

Hey Girls-
I noticed Aug tread hasn't been getting used so I've been waiting for a new thread. I'll probably be just chill for Oct and will post more in Nov. I guess we took a month off and will be starting BCP as soon as AF comes in next week. The plan is for IVF the last week of Nov and we will be freezing this time. I'm so excited DH is letting me try one more time, gotta start pinching pennys so we can get the meds.

Good luck everyone!!
