Chitra,

I am on 7th day of stimms (follistim pen) and all is going well. Just watch the moodiness you may get from Lupron. I had a couple of moments. I have an ultrasound tomorrow to see how the eggs are progressing. If all is well, I should have the EC next week some time.

Let me know how your DH biopsy goes. The recovery was seamless for my DH. Me, well, I am just bloated at the moment. :?

Hello and welcome - what a lovely story, it's great to hear the success stories - they give us all a boost and remind us that there is a good reason to all this :D

It must be great fun having twins - I saw your post about the possibility of doing it all again - my answer is why not? You're an experienced mother now and if you feel ready to do it all again, then go for it. At least if it were twins again you would know what to expect :!: :wink:

I wish you loads of luck with whatever you decide.

I am at the ARGC in London - they are absolutely fantastic. I used to go to a hospital more local to me, but they were concerned over my responses. I had excellent embryos put back, then either had early m/c or no implantation at all.

At ARGC I have had tests done for Natural Killer Cells and they came back showing a high level which could be the reason for the m/c. I'm keeping everything crossed as you can imagine. :D

Do twins run in your family or was it just the response to IVF?

Chitra,

I am so glad to hear that everything worked out with DH's procedure. When is your ET scheduled? Or I wonder if you already had this. . .

Hinak's feedback is very encouraging.

Best of luck to you all! I will be testing this Friday, May 27. Hope to have good news to report.

OH, and I did not see you on the June/July roll call under General Discussion. You should consider getting on this. It really is great support during the cycle. And really helps for the 2ww!

thanks hinak for posting. it is very inspiring to hear your story. hope you suceed again.

Sher8, what is happening on ur side! please me updated.

sorry I did not reply for so long. It has been a very tough week!!!
I seem to show low response to the stim drugs. I had not that many eggs on my first ultrasoung and my estadiol was 43 only!!!

When I went for the 2nd ultrasound, my dr was worried that there are'nt enough eggs and the best ones(about 4) were 7mm only. my estariol level was 130. I thought that they may cancel the cycle I was so scared and confused, cried a lot!!!

But thet wanted to give it a try, increased my stim drugs. today I went for my third ultrasound , there seems to be an improvement. There are 4 eggs that are 13mm and 2 about 9mm. I am very disappointed that there are only a very few! I have no idea how they will proceed I am waiting on a call from my dr office. they will call after they get my estradiol results and let me know how to proceed. very worried!!???!!!
