Hi Barb- I found you on this thread as well! I always feel hormonal and bloated when I'm doing shots but hang in there. And yay! 5 follies each side is great. Can they tell you what day you'll have the ER?

I had my u/s today and he says that I have like 8 or 9 on each side. My ER date is monday at 8:30. I am very uncomfortable but it is all going to be worth it. What is your protocol?

Hi Barb-
Sorry I didn't check my email over Columbus Day weekend... how did ER go yesterday!!! How are the embies growing and when will you have ET? It's so exciting and I have my fingers crossed for you.

It went ok, I was in alot of pain afterward but I am ok today. They took 19 embries out and well I have to freeze them till I finish paying them off. So it will be a month or two. Not happy about that fact :cry: but I guess just one mountain to climb.

How are things with you???

Oh Barb I didn't realize they are having you freeze them until bills are paid - that really sucks. But we'll have to stay in touch when you are preparing for ET. As for me I'm waiting for AF this week to start bcps and have a saline ultrasound. They just want to check the uterus to make sure I'm a-ok for implantation. Then we'll move forward with Gonal F, Lupron, the whole deal. I've been on this wacky rollercoaster for nearly 4 years and after my last cycle, 4 follies, IUI, dh sample had good #s... I was so disappointed with the BFN that I was considering taking a break and getting on depression meds. But IVF is so close I feel a family is within our reach and I don't want to postpone it. So I'm going to start seeing a therapist this week and I'm hoping to end 2008 with a happy ending... I told my friend if I don't my BFP I'm quitting work and traveling around Europe for 2 months!!! I don't have the $ to do it but I don't care. After all dh and I have been through we deserve it before going thru IVF again. Of course my #1 priority is just praying for BFP! :)

Well, I feel you and I am going to pray that is works for you this time. Maybe by the time you start lupron and have your retreival and re implant I will have paid it off and we could have BFP together :lol: . I figured if it doesn't work by the end of the year I am going to take a vacation to Puerto Rico and relax for a while 8) then come back and work harder to achieve our new addition to our family. This is a very emotional roller coaster but at this end it will be worth it. I am also glad that I found this site.

Keep touch with your treatment.
