Futurebabybee- I hope the results of your tests and procedures come out perfect so you can move right along. I know it's a long process and stressful in so many ways, but I'm sure this will be the step that gets you that BFP!! just try to relax and enjoy time with the hubby, maybe do a weekend get away or a fun date night!

MrsR- I am so sorry about the BFN, it's not over until the witch shows! Are you late yet? Maybe wait a couple days and if AF doesn't show, then test again, sometimes it takes a while for the hcg to build up enough to show in urine tests. But if this cycle turns out to be a bust, the statistics only get better next month. Just remember, every cycle down is one less until we get our little ones!

As for me, follicle scan was great, CD13 and I have a 19mm on the left (side with the tube) and a 12mm on the right! Dr. Was super pleased and gave me the pregnyl shot, 5000 units even though I had already gotten a positive opk this morning. So between the lh surge and the hcg, this eggo is definitely being sent on its way soon! On a side note, I have NEVER ovulated before CD18, so this is a miracle! Even if this cycle doesn't work out, knowing that this medication at this dose makes me ovulate in a normal, healthy time frame is a huge weight off my shoulders! Hubby and I just finished moving out of our apartment and into my parents house for the last week before the big move since our vehicle has been put in storage and all of our stuff is already shipped to japan. I feel like hubs and I are teenagers with how sneaky were having to be with BDing.... I mean we are married adults who are openly doing fertility treatments and TTCing...and still I feel like my dad is going to come barging in with a shotgun to defend my virtue! HAHA! I hope all is well with you ladies and now I must sneak-bang my hubby for 3 days and then do my best to not POAS for two weeks....I don't know if I can last that long o.o

novareon that is hilarious!! Don't forget to lock the door! Teheheheheh!
Well, AF is not here yet but I just had some brown discharge. I always get a very pronounced back and abdominal cramps 24 hrs prior to my period. I didn't have any sore boobs like I always do a week before AF. So maybe the Ovidrel changed the symptoms. See within of coz I still hope this is the implantation bleeding some people experience. It's just terrible that all the AF symptoms and side effects of these fertility drugs mimick the pregnancy symptoms. I mean, what a sick joke right?
Hope all is well with everyone else. Trusting God for good news, even if not coming from me this time! One love.

So last cycle was a bust. Went on to 7.5 Femara this cycle with plans to trigger then IUI. Day of ultrasound a miserly little follicle. Heartbreak. Give it time NP said. Back Monday, still one follicle, not even 16 mm. :( . Told NP to scratch this cycle as i see no hope. Kept doing daily opks since last week. Suddenly today, CD 20, flashing smiley!! First one ever!!! Paged doc at 10 pm lol! Says I don't need Ovidrel, just wait for solid smiley then call or page him if after hours. Day after the solid smiley he will do IUI. God is working His miracles His own way. Our plans truly are not His. I had ruled this cycle out and was even pricing IVF. I was shopping for cheap sites and pharmacies to get best deals on injectables meds.... Since the hybrid cycle was predicted at 2,000 dollars give or take. 'Twould have been for next month. But I'm going to step aside and let God do His thing.
How is everyone?

Mrs. Roulette-that is excellent news about your opk! Get it on when you see that solid smiley! Some follies just take longer to grow than others. Chin up and lots of good vibes coming your way!

As for me, the last cycle was a success! My 19mm follicle turned into a BFP at 11dpo. Betas are looking great 60, 170, 473, 1275 so far. I am currently 4weeks 5days and have my first scan next week to make sure the nugget made it to the uterus this time. The move to Japan is complete, don't have reliable internet set up yet, but still wanted to pop in and check on you ladies and give you an update!
