Hey Ladies!
Well it looks like my eggs are almost ready to go! Looks like EC is going to be Wednesday!! Woo Hoo We will find out for sure after blood test results.

Dr Whitsides said that we might be able to get 11 and there are still some growing. I had a bunch that were 20mm already! No wonder I am soooo bloated!

I hope you get a BFP today Christy! I have been thinking of you all morning!
Court: I pray that your embies are growing like mad and we can have our EC the same day as your ET!

Ashley: Are you ok sweetie? Did you hear any news on the embies?

Love to all
Sonya

Thanks for all your sweet notes. We got bad news - none made it over the weekend. A bad crop I suppose.
No answers for now ~ we will speak to the doctor and embryologist on Tuesday.

I am sad, but dh is trying very hard to keep me distracted. I think I'll have a nervous break down eventually.

Sonya - great news on EC. I pray you have success, but it sounds like things are lining up nicely!!

Court ~ hope your embies did well over the w/e! Let me know and ET is not too far away...exciting!

Christy ~ wow, I pray you had a BFP!

KAthy ... Ahhh ...thanks for finding me!!! Please feel free to share the following info. with my TR sisters!!!

....Transfer went well. Hubby and I were not in agreement on "how many" to TX ... but we took Dr. Whitesides professional advice ... and TX'erd TWO!!!!! We had one gread AA Blast ... and one grade AB blast. We have 7 blasts left that are watching until today ... and we will then know how many of them are "freezable". Girls ... I'm just not sure that I'm cut out for twins, being that I already have four children. (9, 11, 13 and 15). Dr. W did say that even transferring two ... that there is an 85% chance that only one will take.
Uggh ....this 2ww is excruciating .....and my derrier is SOOOOOo sore from the progesterone oil! I've been cramping somewhat ... assuming that this is normal.

I can say ... in all honesty .... that the experience I had yesterday can be compared with my wedding and birth of my other children. Dr. Whitesides was BEYOND what I needed at that moment .... and I know ... beyond a shadow of a doubt ...that he has found his calling. God uses him as an amazing tool.
Blessings,
Courtney

P.S. .....Sonya ...Congrats My Love!!
CKL ......PLEASE POST!!\
Sara...Where are you???

Hey Ladies

So glad that your ET went well Courtney! BFP BFP

Ok Ok Ladies I am back....well it was a BFP for me!!!!! I am so sorry to keep you all waiting but I have been in shock all week....and then I wanted to wait for my next beta to make sure that I wasn't dreaming and now it even feels weird to write this! My levels on the first beta were really high...as were my second....soooooo they are not saying that it is twins but they said that the high numbers could be inidicating that there are 2 in there! Regardless my nurse is really happy about the numbers which is making me feel pretty good. I am very excited, but again...in shock! Like I said last week...I was sooooo convinced that af was on her way....and Courtney you were right it was a good sign!

Courtney it sounds like everything went really well! So when will you know how many they freeze? they did that with 4 of ours, they froze 2 on the day of the transfer and then 4 more the following day. I totally understand your dismay about the 2ww....that was terrible! as for the shots...i am glad that I am done with those now, however...the suppositories are horrible! i find them super ikky....but i guess that it is all worth it. I am glad that you had a good experience though. i was quite emotional on the day of my transfer. i started to tear up when they gave me the photo of the blasts.

Has anyone heard from Ashley...how is she doing?

Sonya...follow your own advice to me and go hit the mall....it is a crappy day and I think that you need some shoes...or go get yourself a mani/pedi...that will help you make it until saturday!

Mary...are you back from Vegas yet?
