I agree, I almost felt bad for juan last time, but I don't think he is a match for her anyway. I also don't think robbie will make the final 3.

So I watched this weeks episode yesterday. So much drama! You would think boys would be a little better about the drama, but they are just as bad. I really wish Tanner would have spoken up and called Wes out. You could tell everyone wanted to say something so bad, but no one was willing to hurt their own chances by being the snitch.

I am glad she got rid of David. I knew he was going as soon as she blew him off for a kiss. That is a bad sign when she is kissing everyone. And Juan would have gone sooner or later, he just wasn't her type. I am a little surprised she kept creepy tanner p, but I think she felt like she had to keep him since he provided her with that info, I don't think he will ast either.

I do not like Wes much anymore. I started out liking him, but now I question his agenda too. It looks like he might get called out next week and asked to leave, unless the preview was about someone else, but I can't imagine who. My favorite is still Jake, and I also really like Michael (the breakdance instructor). They are both really nice guys.

My FET is/was scheduled for June 24th, and I was excited about getting close, but then I went for an appt, u/s looked good, ovaries looked suppressed and lining was fine. They told me to start estrace pills, but then called the next day and said to stop, because my estrogen came back too high in my bw. That was last thursday, I have been continuing lupron and go again tomorrow for bw. If estrogen dropped, I might be able to still tarnsfer the same day, but if not, I may be delayed. This may have delayed me no matter what, which is kinda what I am expecting at this point. But I am just praying the lupron is working and my estrogen will be low tomorrow. I will keep you updated.

Michelle- I am so sorry that your bw came back a little messed up. I hope that your levels calm down a little and you are able to transfer on time. however, I know that you want things to go perfect, so if you have to wait a little while longer than it might be better.

As for Bachelorette- I was so glad that she got rid of David. He was such a toot. It was pretty funny when she did blow him off from a kiss.
I find it very interesting to see who she does and who she doesn't kiss.
I LOVE Jake, but do not think he will make it more than one more week or so. As she said, he is almost too perfect.
I too wa shocked that she kept Tanner P, but the other two were more obvious to let go. I think he should have stepped forward though....or she should have called the guys in one at a time to "talk" to them, and then Tanner could have told her who "has a girlfriend."
Anyhow....
My DVR cut off early, so I did not see her final speech to the boys or the preview for next week. I guess it will just keep me guessing.

Keep me posted on all your levels:)

Man it is hard to find our thread under all the viagra ads...

I just watched last nights episode and wanted to post while it is fresh in my mind...

I was pretty shocked Ed left but I can understand the whole job thing. I don't think she would have picked him in the end anyway. He should have sorted out the job stuff before he signed up for the show. I am still really surprised she kept Tanner. Besides for his gross foot fetish, I thought for sure she was upset that he wouldn't spill the beans about whoever has a girlfriend. I am shocked that she is not seeing through Wes when he keeps bringing up his career and CD.

My favorites are Jake and Michael. After the date her and Jesse had, I think he has a strong chance too. And Kypton is a frontrunner. I think Robby, Reid and Tanner will be the next ones to go, they just don't seem like good matches for her. I think Wes should go, but her connection is strong with him, so he might make it far.

My dvr cuts off too, but I tape the show afterwards so I usually have the previews, but last night I watched the newlywed show and deleted it when I was done, not realizing the previews of next weeks bachelorette were at the beginning of it...ugh...so now I have to wait until next week...or go look it up online :D

Sorry crashing your thread for DH. My DH is watching "I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here" and asked why "Daniel" Baldwin was brought in (he is gone already, but DH wanted to know why he was added to the cast - apparently he was not in the "original" group).

DH laughed when I told him that there was a "Reality" thread on the IVF board that could probably answer his question.

Thanks for any help.

I think I can answer that question! I am watching that show too. He was brought in after Heidi and Spencer "left" the first time. I have a feeling they would have brought in a girl replacement too, but heidi and spencer must have decided to come back before they did that and since daniel was already there, just left it that way. After heidi and spencer quit a second time due to heidi's "illness" then they brought in heidi's sister, making it the same original number of cast.

Tell dh that the ivf boards have an answer for everything! :D

OK - that makes sense. Thanks for the help.

Yep - I just loved DH's response - "WHAT ?? You can get this answer there????" - said with look of total confusion. Too cool.

Thanks,
Tracy

BTW - Michele - good luck on your next try. I cycled with you last time - didn't "join" the board - just stalked. Hope Ella gets a sibling soon.

OH MY GOSH!!!! I must say that I am floored after watching last night's Bachelorette. I thought for sure she was going to get rid of Tanner and Michael. That was just a given. then I was a littel shocked when she called Michael out in the hall to talk about how "mature" he thought he was. However, it was a sign to me that she was going to keep him.
I never thought she would get rid of Jake. I really felt for him.
Last week it showed a preview of the intimate dates and how one of them men has "intimate" problems. I was laughing so hard. I wonder which one it will be.
I am going to guess that the final two will be Wes and Kiptyn (I just love that name). I just hate that she hasn't figured out who the real Wes is.

Michelle- I haven't heard any more about your transfer....did they have to postpone it?
I just made a call to my dr. and requested my records be sent to me. As soon as I get these, I will forward them on to my new dr. I am not doing anything until next summer, but I figure I better talk to him and see what I can do in advance so that come next June or July I can just walk in and do it:)

do you watch So you think you can dance?
What about America's got Talent?

I saw you posted on like tuesday and I have been trying to watch the recorded bachelorette for days now, but I finally got to it today.

I am in shock also. Jake was such a good catch, and ABC is going to get flooded with emails requesting him to be the next bachelor. I saw the previews too, and it looks like Jake will be back to try and expose Wes. It also looks like someone she let go will try to propose, could that be jake too? For a season that started off slow, they are really gearing up for an exciting ending. Tanner should have gone weeks ago, so I didn;t care about that. I actually like Michael, I know he is younger than her, but he seems so genuine and fun, and I think they would be a good pair.

I am watching America's got talent, not watching dancing, still can't wait for big brother to start in July. Do you follow Jon and Kate at all?

Ooh, I kinda liked the guy on Talent last night that sang that david hasseloff song, I though that was funny. Some of the kids I thought were really good too. No one that sticks out yet though.

My transfer did get postponed. It was actually suppose to happen today...but my e2 levels never dropped, so they told me to stay with the lupron for 2 more weeks, I actually go for u/s and bw tomorrow and I am praying my levels dropped. If I can get on track here, then transfer will be around july 22. I am totally bummed about being delayed yet again, but it may also be a blessing. Now I can get through my brothers out of state wedding on July 11, have a few drinks and a good time, and then come back and de-stress and relax for transfer. Also, if this works, my due date would be very close to mine and my mom's b-day...maybe a b-day c-sec for grandma...she would love it!

I am glad to hear you are planning for next summer. Maybe this break will do you some good, and switching dr's will be good too...and you will have success. I know I will still be on these boards to route you on!

I cannot believe it is down to just the two of us. You can't honestly tell me noone else on here watches reality shows. Oh well.....

Oh that would be so wonderful if Jake got to be the next Bachelor. I am afraid that he was kicked off too soon though for them to consider him. I also think he might have a hard time kicking girls off because he is so nice and seems like the kind who would be able to find the good in everyboyd.
Ya, Tanner should have gone about the first week. Guess they had to keep him around so that he could stir the pot a little. I could not believe that he admitted to the guys that he is the one that spilled the beans. What was he hoping to accomplish by doing that?
I am not a Michael fan....just because I do not think he is as grounded as some of the others. I would have preferred he go as opposed to Jake. However, he is really fun, and she does have a good time with him. I do agree that he is genuine.

I have not heard yet when Big brother is going to start. I am anxiously awaiting some news on that. I would say that is my favorite reality show.

I agree about Talent....it's too early in the show to really have anyone great stand out. DH said he couldn't watch much of it the other night cuz it got stupid....we will get more into it once they narrow it down.

Sorry about your transfer being postponed. However, you seem to have a positive attitude about it. You have to trust that God's timing will be the perfect time.

I just saw the title of this and thought I'd take a look as I love reality tv. I started to read and got all confused. Then I had to laugh when I realised they are all american reality tv shows your talking about! So I know nothing at all.

I was hoping to see what others were thinking of Big Brother which started here a couple of weeks ago.! LOL

I haven't watched any of BB this year - bored of it now! My mum is a complete BB fan though!

I like programmes like Wife Swap! Did you watch it last Sunday?! I love Come Dine With Me as well - to be honest any programmes to do with food I love!!

We will all have to find a programme we can all talk about that's on in the UK and America! :lol:

Yeah i like the Hell's Kitchen programmes as well - haven't really watched the American one - seen a few though. They really don't know how to take him do they!

If you get chance to watch Wife Swap do even though you'll get soooooo mad!!

I also like the property programmes as well - although DH doesn't - he thinks they give me ideas to redecorate! Not a great idea when we've only just got sorted from the floods 2 years ago!!
