SMS - great jump, you must be happy with that. How did DH take the news on Friday? The scan will make it feel even more real, just another 2ww!!

How's EOE?

I'm at the airport, on route to London for the next three days. Was super hard to say goodbye to my baby, she so much more grown up than me.. Told me she won't cry when I'm gone as she's a big girl now!! I want to be back already!

So happy for you Steph!! Those numbers sound great :)
I get it about the continued wait.. Literally every part of this journey is waiting.. It is by far the hardest part! I clean and exercise to pass the time in between appointments, and try to stay as positive as I can ;)

Hi Mama!

How are you doing Shannon?

Afm, just hit 13 weeks over the weekend. All seems to be well, I think my evening sickness is winding down a bit, as it is not happening as frequently as it was. My pants are starting not to fit quite as well.. Not sure if that is from the baby.. or the nightly ice cream.. Making myself get it together this week and exercise seriously and watch what Im putting in my mouth! Lol.

They were definitely reassuring, but I know I will be crazy over the next two weeks, until I can see the little bean and a heartbeat. Thankfully the holiday is in between and we are having company over. So this weekend I will be doing some crazy cleaning of rooms and shopping for the main event. I'm thinking I'll pick up some crafts for my nieces to keep them occupied and I'm getting all of their Christmas stuff done so that my brother can take it home with him and I don't have to ship it.

I'm also not trying to over react to every little thing I feel too haha. So bear with me as I try to stay sane, haha. Hope EOE is doing ok?

Shannon how are you doing? Mama, they grow up so fast, sounds like she's 16 already, haha :D

Yay Steph!!!! What a great increase! Can't wait to see the ultrasound.

Mama - safe travels to London!

Liz - How are you 13 weeks already? :shock: Lol...so glad things are going well.

Ugh, so things with me just keep getting more and more frustrating. My scan on Friday showed one follicle on the left at 16 and a smaller one, was told to wait for +opk, if no + by yesterday to call. So of course no +opk so now I'm sitting here waiting to get blood drawn to check estradiol to see if the follicle seen may still be the cyst. What the heck...really? This is the never ending cycle. Even more confusing is my temp dropped on Sunday and went up yesterday and today which normally I would consider I ovulated, but apparently maybe not. Eh...

Shannon, Keep us posted, that has got to be so frustrating. How many days are you now into this cycle?

And thank you ladies, you really are great and supportive. I'm sure I would be even more of a basket case if it wasn't for you.

Please feel free to spout any craziness here!! That's what we are here for :rofl:

Ok, so nurse just called, estradiol was 157 so it's apparently a follicle, yay! I go in tomorrow morning to see what the heck is going on because I still haven't gotten a +opk, but maybe I missed it? We shall see, hopefully everything looks ok and this cycle starts progressing! Today is CD26 :shock: but when I started the meds mid cycle, the nurse said to consider the day I started them as day 3 of a new cycle, so that would put me on day 15 if going by that. Confusing lol.

Ok, well at least you're "CD 15". Haha. Hopefully something happens.

I'm just sitting here trying not to read into everything I feel or don't feel. Sometimes I feel nauseous other times I'm great, my bbs are sore and then not sore. Mind games suck. So just keep the positive vibes flowing because the next 14 days are going to drive me insane. lol

Ahhh...so the craziness continues. The "follicle" is now at 28! It was huge on the screen! So, when they did the ultrasound on Friday, there was the bigger one then a smaller one almost right in front of the bigger one, but you could see the outline of the smaller one, it was interesting. Well the smaller one is now at 14, so they are thinking that the bigger one may still be the cyst and this smaller one is the one producing the estrogen and maturing. Lining was still thin though at 5.3. Ugh...so they drew more blood to test the estradiol, LH and progesterone. They are waiting on the results to see what to do. I'll udpate this afternoon when I get the results. I'll also do another opk here in a few hours to see where we stand with that.

Thanks Steph! It's normal to have symptoms come and go, but it definitely plays on the mind! Hang in there, we'll get through these two weeks until your ultrasound. And you can keep me sane through my ordeal :rofl:

I finally heard back, estradiol was up to 194 (woohoo) and the LH and progesterone were low, so no ovulation yet and no pending ovulation in the near future. The consensus is that the large one is the cyst and the smaller one is maturing and should ovulate here at some point. Which is fine, it gives my lining time to thicken. I go back on Friday morning for another scan and estradiol check to see where we are at. Fun times! :D

Time seems to stand still while you wait for this and that and then one day, you wake up and you are almost 14 weeks pregnant. The whole process is a huge mindf*ck (excuse my French). Its like you almost have to stop obsessing over every little thing for it to work :-/.. Its not like it helps you any- whatever it is doing in there, is out of your control! My husband's philosophy has been to just get through each day. Every minute that we are pregnant is a gift. I will continue to keep positive thoughts your way Steph!

As for the follicle scans, my RE had me on Follistism to help with growth and that worked for me each month. They always put me on Estradial (for lining) and Crinone (for Progesterone) once I ovulated. I also took Ovidrel to make me ovulate once the follies were where they wanted them. The cycle that did it, I think my follicles were 16 and 24 or somewhere around there (obviously only one matured or caught) I liked the piece of mind of knowing when I was going to ovulate due to the shot. I am really praying for you Shannon!
