Leorira-I must have missed ur post regarding your RE.....so you will be trying something different? Thats what I needed was a different approach! Hope this cycle is the one that bring your baby home in 2013!

Tawny-OMG I have insomnia too! Cant sleep...but exhausted! Everything will be OK girl:) Only a few more days!!!! I think Im developing a yeast infection too...gross! From supp 3Xday..how did they treat yours?

Ninde- I am feeling tired, but cant sleep...not a great appetite and when I eat afterwards I feel a little quesy:( Other than that fine. Im glad your trying a new RE thats all it took for me to get my BFP! My old RE kept treating me like "all the rest" Where as I needed a little more individualized care:) Best of luck to you in FEB:)

OK so I wanna give you some info you may want to ask your RE about............My RE has been doing a study since Jan and ALL the pregnancy rates have inceased....3dpt he gives a SQshot Lupron 20 units. Apparently it helps with the lining the nurse told me, she said I wont see it at any other clinic yet bc its something new they started and since then rates have gone UP! Who knows?!?!?

AFM-Up bright and early...off to the RE for bloodwork! I really am hoping for a good beta today! Its xmas eve and I would LOVE great news:) I have to travel 45 mins each way. Hoping to see the nurse from my retreival...shes pregnant and she told she would give me good luck!!! I am now assigned a "pregnancy nurse" now for callbacks! Hopefully she dont keep me hanging all day!!

Leoria- According to that website, which is awsome by the way, I am 6 weeks today so I will be almost 7 weeks for my U/s Friday the 28th and it says heartbeat can be found on the 31st.

Lauren- I got my infection from the 3x a day supp. She said there are probably more to come because of the supp they gave me terconazole crm 20 gm for 3 days and it went away pretty fast I'm alot happier now. I've never had one before and don't want any more. I feel kinda like you go with the food. I feel like I'm starving but then half way into my food I feel like I'm going to blow and get pretty queezy. I'm deffinently not feeling so well after breakfast this morning.

Lauren - YAAAAHOOOO! Hurray!

As for when to do an u/s, some doctors like to wait until they will for sure see a heartbeat. Others like to do it earlier, just to make sure things are where they should be (especially if the woman has a history of ectopic pregnancies or miscarriages). My doctor does an u/s at 5.5 weeks and 6.5 weeks, but some doctors like to wait until 7.

Ninde and Leora- Since my clinic doesn't do FETS in January, I'm joining you ladies In February! Estimated FET date is set for, Monday Feb. 25, 2013. My first time to write that date out. I'm just hoping the in-laws won't have to take me this time, love the inlaws, and they aren't in the operating room but it's way too weird if you know what I mean, especially when the doctor gives her a picture of the embryos and my mother in law says something like I'll see you and this baby in 9 months. I just hate disappointment, so it's better to stay low-keyed it really is. ttyl

Christy- You'll be a little before me, but yay for having a date! Why doesn't your clinic do FETs in January? What made you decide to go with FET instead of a fresh cycle, I know you were debating the two. FETs are much much much easier. And you can go to FET by yourself! I almost always go to ET by myself - DH can't always take time off work. My MIL came to my first ET, because DH was in the army then and couldn't get time off -- and I got pregnant! :D

Lauren - u/s soooo soon! I'm so excited for you! Add a pregnancy ticker :D

Tawny - tomorrow! Hurray! I hope you see a great heartbeat (or two)!

Hey girls

Christy this is great news! You have set a date. I've never done a FET before but I hear its much easier! Any big plans for New Years?

Leorira..I'm not sure how to add the ticker...lol help? Thanks for the info on u/s. haven't been able to access beta base...when is ur trip again?

Tawny..one more day!!!!!!! I will be stalking all day to hear the great news:)

Pocos...thanks:) we are excited!

Afm....had my 3 beta this morning. Nervous as usual. This whole beta thing is major anxiety. I keep trying to enjoy the bfp part but I can't help but worry. My ultrasound will be mon at 10 am....only 5weeks..2days. Will post my beta later :D

Leora- Found out with the Attain Program if we decide to move onto a 2nd fresh cycle and have embryos available to do frozen cycle, we forfeit the 1st frozen embryo transfer. Meaning if we skipped the FET, the refund would revert to a discounted global fee-for-service agreement instead of the orginal refund agreement.

The scenario in which the refund would stand at 70% is: In the event Michael and I complete all three (3) IVF cycles and, to the extent available from the three IVF cycles, along with my three FET cycles and do not take home a baby, IntegraMed will refund Seventy Percent (70%) of the Program Fee. Therefore I cannot skip a FET and move to a fresh if I want to be eligible for the refund once we go through all 6 cycles and still don't bring home a baby. Now the question we keep debating on is with the 3 frosties, do we transfer 1 or 2 embyros and yes the doctor has already ruled out transferring all 3 so early on. Yes the FET would be set for February, my clinic has fresh cycles going on in January, FETs scheduled in February. Yes I could talk my RE into letting me come in January, but my staff at work has been cut in half and we are currently borrowing employees from a sister store. I pray we have 3-4 new people hired by the end of January. My vacation time starts in Feb., right now it would be best to finish wrapping up the holidays/upcoming inventory at work. Although dh is trying to persuade me to start a business with him cleaning beach-front properties. Hahaha I don't even clean my own house what makes him think I would be good at that?

Lauren- The anxiety is tough I know, but try to relax and think happy thoughts. I cannot wait to hear all about your ultrasound on Monday, New Years Day. What a fabulous way to ring in the new year! Many more of us will be following you!! As for celebrating, we'll toast to that!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

I'm so scared I just started spotting so we are rushing to the doctors office for an exam to see if everything's okay. It looks like I get my ultrasound a day early but it makes me nervous what we're going to see. I'll keep you guys posted on what they say.

Tawny- We hear and read many others having spotting during the first trimester, so I hope this is something just common, and the doctor provides you some peace of mind. Get some rest tonight while I'll keep praying for your little one, please keep us posted as well. -Christy
