Bbpac- yay! Awesome news that the cyst is gone and you can move forward with IVF! I'm so excited for you!

Robyn- How you doing? When do you find out the sex of the baby? Are you secretly hoping for one over the other???

AFM, CD3 baseline u/s this morning. Had 3 on right and 2 on left- she's going to keep me on the same protocol, and if this doesn't take this cycle, then we are going to do back to back IUI next cycle. She thinks i responded good and doesn't want to up my dosage and give me more follies when I trigger :( I wanted at least 4 but oh well. Go back in on Tues for a follie check! Pray this month is it for me n Bbpac! That way we can join Robyn! yippeeee!

How is this cycle going Rachel?

How are you feeling Robyn?

I have some things figured out now...I am on BCP for IVF. We go in Wed for appts and then I start Lupron on the 21st and then u/s on 27th and start stimming on 30th. Then u/s on 5th and hopeful retrieval May 9-11ish and implantation 3-5 days later...I spent an hour on phone with medication places and looks like I will only owe about 150 dollars for about 80 viles of meds, etc. I feel very lucky for that. I will have Lupron injections, Gonal infections, progesterone injections, progesterone patches, also some antibiotic and valium for procedure days! I am nervous and excited.

Bbpac - I'm feeling great! One more week until Spring Break, thankfully! That's awesome about the meds...they can be very expensive! YAY for getting started! Once you start stimming, it will be here before you know it!!! Have you guys decided how many embryos you're going to transfer?

Rachel - How's it going?

We can only transfer one because of my unicornuate uterus...so that is a bummer. Much higher success rate with two at a time...what did you do? How many days did you have to stim?

Hey bbpac! I wanted to let you know that there is a woman on the October due date boards who is currently pregnant with a bicornuate uterus...I'm not sure what the difference is, but wanted to give you some hope!! :D

Hey girls!

Bbpac- sounds like things are progressing nicely with your ivf cycle! Hopefully things go smoothly, I'm hecka excited for you!

Robyn- how r u??? Baby shopping yet?

AFM..Doing alright. Not feeling any activity in my ovaries at all with femara. Supposedly femara gives produces more quality eggs than quantity, so that's a good thing- but not feeling anything like I normally do. We'll have to see on Tuesday..

I have a cousin living with me who was suppose to stay for only a few months until she gets herself situated..and it's been almost 3 years! I gotta figure out a nice way to tell her to get to walkin' as her room is right next to mine and it's awkward when our bed starts squeakin during BD..so it affects everything...:(

Rachel - OMG...that's totally taking advantage! I don't blame you for telling her...she's got to go!!! You shouldn't have to feel awkward in your own home! I've heard that about Femara as well....quality over quantity...when do you start going in for monitoring? I'm not baby shopping until I know the sex...I have an appt on Tuesday, and I'll be scheduling the anatomy scan then! Can't wait...I'll keep you posted!

Bbpac - Can't wait for you to start stimming...it will be here before you know it!!!!!!!!

Girl tell me about it! She said she was saving up for a place of her own, and then she bought a new car, is always out of town, etc. The sad thing is..is that I am going to look like the bad person when this is all done and over with! ugh!

Not to mention DH and I just had a huge fight last night about his excessive drinking (he drinks a lot on special occassion- I mean- A LOT!) and it's been an ongoing issue. :(

Newhoo..work sucks and follie check on Tuesday :)

I'm sorry you're so stressed out girl! Not to sound mean, but regarding your cousin, it's not your problem! You were nice enough to let her stay with you and you're trying to start your own family, so she has to move on! I'm sorry you and DH got into a fight...hopefully things will get better in that area. At least the follie check on Tuesday is something to look forward to! :D

thanks girls..I did forget to mention, she is paying me $400 for rent and stuff...but living in the Bay Area in California, that's close to nothing.. Newhoo..I will talk to her this week. DH and I took the day off on Thursday & Friday (assuming Thurs is IUI day) and I wanted to get some extra BD'ing in...she is off on Thursdays though..hopefully she leaves for the day.

I just don't know how to tell her without the bad emotions, yknow? I just wish I was pg already- would be sooo much easier to ask for the extra room back..then again..why should I be worried so much since it's MY house! rawr!
