I am so sorry. I thought things would work out for you. Like you said though, at least you do have lots of frozen ones. How much is a fet?
My dr. does FETS for $800....much cheaper than the real deal.
Enjoy your reality shows. I didn't watch any tonigh...will try to catch up this weekend. Not feeling the best :(

hr- hope you feel better, and let me know when you catch up on the shows, so we can talk about them.

OMG, $800 is so cheap, I wouldn't even be blinking about $800! My clinic charges $5000, when I told dh your clinic was $800 he asked how do we take our embies there and do it...that is crazy the price difference!

How much is a regular cycle at your clinic? Mine was $15000
However, the new clinic that I am looking at (which won't do anything until next summer) is $25000!!!!! Not sure what they charge for a FET at that clinic.

Wanted to let you know I know exactly how you feel. I thought because I got pregnant with my dd on the first IVF attempt that it would be a piece of cake. The first BFN I got devistated me. I thought why, when it worked so well the first time. I was devistated for over a month. Then when we finally did the FET, I thought well, if it doesn't work, it doesn't work. I again was completely devistated when it didn't work. I think it was doubly hard because my dd knew we were trying and when I told her mommy didn't have a baby in my tummy anymore, she got real hateful and asked why I killed her brother or sister.
Next time around I won't tell her anything.
So, I know exactly how you are feeling. Let me know what your clinic says

I think my clinic is around $14000 for a fresh cycle, wow if that clinic charges $25000 for a fresh I bet it is high for a frozen!

Ella is not old enough yet to understand the whole sibling thing, so I don;t have to worry about telling her, and hopefully I will get pregnant before having to tell her, but I would probably do the same as you and not say anything until I was pregnant for sure.

did you watch survivor last night? I was so hoping coach would go home, I can't stand him...he is way too cocky, and I really hope he goes next. I think I would like to see taj, jt and stephen in the final 3, I like them all. I love the auction and family epsiode and it was so awesome they did them together this time.

and idols- I still think it will be adam and danny in the final 2. I can't wait to see their hometown visits next week. I am definitely routing for danny to win it all.

Did you see that the bachelorette is starting in less than two weeks? I am excited. It is jillian, the hot dog girl from the last bachelor season, I saw the first preview the other day. I think it starts in a week from monday. I think I saw a rumor somewhere that jasons relationship might be over...I have to check on that one.

Hey can I crash? I just found this thread and based on the fact that I watch just about every show you ladies do, I've come to the conclusion that yep, I'm a junkie! :D

My synopsis:

biggest loser - Never have liked Ron much and always thought he was sneaky and a game player. I go back and forth with Mike. Tara gets on my nervous with her whining about being a target and having low self-esteem when she's obviously the best! I can't remember the lady on the pink team's name but I lost respect for her when she sent her daughter home, thought it was selfish. So, if I had to pick one to win, I'd say Mike because he's so young or Tara because she's just that good.

Amazing Race - hrobinson, I TOTALLY agree with you!!! When they were in the car and the sister said she had to pee I looked over at my husband and said "as soon as I stepped out of the car you would have seen a puddle on the ground because I would NOT stop to a restroom!!" I wouldn't have been embarrassed one bit about peeing on myself and viewers would have understood. I wanted to smack her! lol I can't stand the one cheerleader. She is SOOO disrespectful to people and other cultures. People like her give Americans a bad name. I don't care for Luke and his mom either. She uses his disability to get a pass in my opinion. He acted just as ugly with the pushing and shoving and in the end she made it all about him being deaf and that had nothing to do with anything! I think the Asian siblings will win.

Apprentice - I hate that Jesse James was voted off...he was my boy :D Although there really was no defense for keeping him. Just too laid-back. I can't stand Annie but I think she's going to crush Joan Rivers.

Idol - I've been a Danny fan since the beginning but I haven't been following it that closely lately.

Anyone watch So You Think You Can Dance? That's my absolute favorite and it's on in 2 weeks!!
Cynthia - 31, blocked tubes, DH - 26, perfect
1st IVF - 3/2009, ER - 3/26, ET - 3/29 BFP!!

cynthia- I am so glad you joined us! We started this thread a long time ago when the bachelor was on and then it just evolved into almost every show! The bachelorette is starting in just about a week, so I am sure we will be analyzing that one. We had a whole bunch of people for the bachelor, but since them we lost a bunch and it seems to be just 3 of us hanging out chit chatting about tv now, so we gladly welcome a fourth!

I agree with you cynthia about going back and forth with mike. He was nice through the whole game, he gave aubrey his groceries which was awesome ad he has never played dirty just strategically. His only problem is his dad is a sneaky liar, and that is not really his fault. Mike has worked hard and I think deserves a chance at the final prize, he is so young and I am sure could use that money. So I hope Ron is not in the final 3, people might do that just to spite him.

amazing race- I agree about the whole peeing thing! I can not believe she stopped to pee, they were so close! I guess I am routing for the asian team too, with mom/luke my second choice. I do think she uses the disability a bit, but I still like them, there is just something likable about luke, but he was in the wrong for pushing too.

Idols- I am definitely routing for danny...you should watch this week, they are going home for the hometown parades and my husband read last night that adam was ambushed on stage by some female fan in her underwear! I don't know if they will air that though!

apprentice- I also hate annie and wanted jessie to win, but I do think annie will win. She is just too cocky and rude and into herself for my taste.

I sometimes watch so you think you can dance. I usually catch it hear and there, but I may watch more of it this time around, it really depends on what night it will be on.

Has anyone payed attention to dancing with the stars?

Ok, gotta run, talk to you all soon!

Ugh, I can't believe how far down the line our topic has gotten. I guess we are all super busy with our lives.
I must admit that I STILL have not watched Apprentice, though I know that Joan Rivers wins. YEA!!! I would have been upset had it been any other way. CAn't wait to sit down and watch it.

biggest Loser- Jerry!!!!! Of all people, I never would have thought that he had a chance at winning. I am so happy for him. Goes to show that no matter how old you are you are still capable of making a better life for yourself.
I was a little upset that Helen won, but she looked awesome. I am still bitter towards her though for sending her daughter home. The poor girl didn't look all that great, and I think that mother was very selfish.

Survivor- Haven't watched the finale. Got about halfway through last night and fell asleep....will try to watch it within the next week or so.

amazing Race- Not a huge shock as to who won. I was really pulling for Luke and his mom. Poor luke just got so frustrated there at the end. I am glad the bro/sis team won though.

Bachelorette starts tonight. YIPEEEE

Has anyone heard if they are going to do a Big Brother this summer?

I hope everyone is doing well. Gotta run pick my kids up from gym. Never a dull moment.

I had such a busy weekend, I did not have time to post here, but now I have time and man do I have a lot to say!

Apprentice- I was so happy Annie lost, not neccesarily that joan won, but I just hated annie. And it was so funny, when trump was announcing it, I think she thought for a quick second that she had won, and her glee turned right to disappointment.

amazing race- it wasn't a suprise, but I was shocked that luke had so much trouble figuring out that challenge. He had such a big lead, it was sad to watch him get so frustrated and lose.

idols- I was sad to see danny get eliminated. I have been routing for him since the beginning. I guess now I am routing for Kris, only because I am not sure I want to hear adam screeching on the radio. He is too eighties for me. But I think they are both good. I just wish adam wouldn't screech all the time, when he sings a slow song, he is amazing.

survivor- I was pretty sure JT would win, but I think if anyone brought erinn she would have one. They were totally underestimating her. They would have looked bad for betraying each other and erinn really had no alliance, so she would have looked strong for making it that far. I really wish taj made it to the final 3 and at least had a chance, I was mad that they betrayed her.

biggest loser- I can not believe how much jerry lost! That was amazing. And helen too, she looked too skinny to me. But I am glad to see how well everyone did this season.

So bachelorett starts tonight...I am so excited. I really needed it tonight too, I had to put my dog to sleep today... :( so anything to get my mind off of that will be good.

I did see previews for big brother this summer, I want to say june or july. I will keep my eye out for an official start date.

Ok, I will try and post in a day or two, or three with finals being this week, and give my bachelorette/idol update.

Hopefully our thread will pick up again with the bachelorette. Talk to you soon.

Well, it is almost depresing.....the reality shows for the most part are over right now. What on earth am I supposed to watch all week long? I finally finished watching Bachelorette last night. I am not sure how much I like Jillian. She is just such a me person it drives me crazy. I wonder how they narrow it down those first few nights. I mean think about it, they only have what seems like a few hours to get to know not 25 men, but 30. WOW!!! There seemed to be some really great men on there. I think I am in love with Wes (the singer). He has such an awesome voice. Tanner P (the foot guy) was so creepy. I think I would have to get rid of him quickly.
I am also impressed that she was able to remember 20 men's names. WOW!!!!

Wondering if anyone has seen when Big Brother starts? I have not seen an ad or anything for it :?

I think If you think you can dance (I think that's the name) starts here pretty quickly....and also America's got talent.

So, school is almost out for me. We have 3 1/2 days left. I am so ready for a vacation. However, we are going to be so busy this summer that I am sure it will fly by quicker than the 9 month school year.

Michelle- When do you go back in to your dr? Are you going to jump right back into another cycle?

hey HR-

I know, I am going crazy now that there is nothing on TV :( But we have hbo and showtime free for 3 months, so maybe that will help.

I agree about the bachelorette and how they narrow it down the first few times, I guess just on gut feeling or instinct. I really liked the pilot, tall skinny guy, I can't remember his name. And wes was another early favorite. I thought the guy that kept calling her "Hot tub" or making hot tub references was a jerk and I can not believe she kept him.

So you think you can dance started thursday I think, I watched, I like the auditions, but I usually lose interest. I guess because I really like the hip hop dancers, but they never make it very far

Talent and big brother should be soon. I still do not know when though. I read online that big brother has casted season 11, but still no announcement on start date, my guess is june/july.

as far as my cycle goes, I am planning on an FET soon. I am on lupron now, waiting for biopsy results, and my estimated transfer is June 24th. So as long as I don't hit any bumps in the road this time (which I have come to expect by now), just over 4 wks until transfer.

just wanted to let you guys know I saw a commercial for big brother, it said coming in July, but no date

and I watched the bachelorette this week, and I can't believe she kept the foot creep when she knows about his obsession. And I am definitely sticking with my first week pick of the pilot, I think his name was Jake. She went on the one on one date with him this week that went awesome. He is my favorite so far. I can see why someone would like wes, but I am a bit skeptical about him.

Michelle- I hope the lupron and everything is going on as planned. I believe you transfer here in a little less than a month. YIPPPPEEEEE!!! You are such a brave soul for jumping right into it again. I was always a wreck after my BFN.

I also saw the commercial about BB starting in July. I wish they wouldn't wait so long:(

I agree with you on Bachelorette. I LOVE Jake (the pilot). They just really seemed to click. However, I think a lot of times the ones that they click with early on don't make it to the end.
I don't think Wes and Jillian will make it very far. She said that he was a "bad boy", yet I don't see anything bad about him. They seemed to have a hard time with the conversation when they were eating their dinner.
Tanner P grosses me out, and I was shocked she kept him.
Next week looks really good with the blow up with David. I do NOT like him at all. He doesn' t seem to be there for the right reasons.

Hello...wow, our thread fell so low below all of the viagra junk...

I didn't get a chance to watch the bachelorette until yesterday...so here is what I though. I still love Jake (the pilot) and knew he would be safe even though he didn't get a date this week. I still think tanner (foot fetish) is sooooo creepy and I have no idea why she is keeping him. I am not sure I like wes that much anymore, I am starting to wonder if he is there for her or to promote is song. There are a couple others that I am starting to like. I kinda like Michael the breakdance instructor. I though at first he might be a little immature, but he really seems like a nice guy. I also liked the one who played the cowboy who picked her up and kissed her by the fence in the movie, the one who said he was gonna marry her in the script. I don't remember his name, maybe paul?? but he got a rose on the date. He seems pretty genuine too. I don't like david, she should have gotten rid of him this week. He has too bad of a temper...even if he doesn't like juan, he doesn't have to express it by cursing and saying he would kill him or beat him up, that's not nice.

Do you watch the newlywed show that is on after the bachelorette? I really liked that show last time it was on, and I like it again. I think it is funny.

I am also trying to watch that celebrity show, but I am not sure I will catch it every night. Let me know if you are watching those so we can discuss them.

Ok, gotta run, but I will look for a post from you soon with your bachelorette analysis.

And anyone else...if you are reading and want to give us your opinion, feel free...we would love to hear it!

Hey Michele- Gosh, I feel we have really dropped the ball on our thread. What on earth happened to everyone? You can' t honestly tell me no one watches these reality shows.
I did watch Bachelorette, but I would say at this point there are too many for any to really stand out drastically. I was really disappointed that Jake didnt' get a date. I thought they had suh a good connection that she would at least put him on the group date. She better not let him get away.
Tanner P gives me the creeps. I also thought she was getting a little turned off by his fetish, so I was shocked that he gota rose.
I HATE David. My gosh, I am shocked that with his mouth, and all the talk about killing Juan and beating him up , that he hasn't been kicked off the show.
I was also a littel shocked that the other guys seem to be taking David's side of things with regards to Juan. I almost feel bad for Juan.
Robbie (the guy from the movie date that got teh rose) is really sweet. However, I don't think he will make it to the final 3.
So.....

I don't really watch any other shows right now. I have So you think you can dance recorded, but I haven't been watching it. I will eventually get caught up on that......maybe.

I saw that you are just 3 weeks away from your FET. I am sure that you are getting a little excited. This is actually the first summer in 5 years that I am not doing either an IVF or a FET Seems kind of weird. However, THINK we are gong to jump back on the IVF wagon next summer.
anyhow, enough babble.....
