That`s fantastic Tammylynn, you must tell us as soon as you know, I`m keeping everything crossed for you.

Well, I`m back in the tww (I think). I`m using the cb fertility monitor and I got up earlier in the week and forgot to pee in a pot, so I missed a reading as only supposed to use fmu. Anyway I have had loads of O pain and fertile cm and we bd`d everyday for a week so I`m hoping I caught the egg if there was was one. Since my cervix was still really high on thurs I`m guessing af is due on 1/23 at the latest. When I had my last mc it threw everything out for months, and this month I did not get a peak fertility reading even though my body was giving me signs, so I`ll just have to wait and see what happens.

Sunshine, hopefully these days will pass quickly for you.

Good luck to everyone.

Yes, here is my update! Yesterday was my transfer and all 8 embies were still growing strong. They were all 8 cell and rated the highest level by the embryologist! A grade 1 or AA! So the embryololgist had to choose using eni meni miny mo and picked two. So yesterday we transferred two 8 cell grade 1/AA embies. All went perfect and my uterus was perfect, there was no fluid and lining was nice and thick a nd tripled stiped! I go back to work on Weds and my beta is Jan 22. I will start POAS on Sunday. just to see :)

Wishing you the best of luck!

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Amazing Tammylynn. Congratulations on all those embies. I really hope you get a bfp and i will be keeping everything crossed. It is incredible to see those embryo`s and think that one or both could be your baby(ies).

I have been on tenterhooks waiting for your update and I am so glad that everything has gone so well.

I have started on the cyclogest but I have cut my dose in half because I struggled with the side effects, and I will also start testing at the end of the week. I pity you having progesterone injections and pessaries, I had progesterone injections to avoid PND and my skin reacted to it where it was injected, so after that I alternated buttocks lol.

Please, please keep in touch, I was following your story for ages before I signed up, and I can`t tell you how much I hope to see you get a BFP.

GOOD LUCK !

Tammylynn-
what amazing news! I hope this is your cycle.

Beelady-Good Luck! I hope everything works out.

I had an appointment with my gyn last night. I am now officially 3 weeks late, but all tests are negative. They even did one there, which I told them was a waste of time, but I guess they have to. Anyway, I have to take progesterone for the next 12 days, which will hopefully bring on my period. Then I have a scan on Feb 8th to check the size of the cyst on the right ovary. If I am cleared, then with the next cycle, I'll be trying Femara--I found out that Femara costs significantly less than Clomid on my prescription plan and since we've been trying Clomid for like 12 cycles, I think it's time to try something else. I think I've decided I will keep trying through the summer and then I'm done, but I'm not sure yet...

CynZim, I am glad they are doing something to help bring on your period, and fingers crossed for the femara. I hope you get your bfp long before the summer. Good Luck!

Cynzim, that's exciting about the femara. That's how I was with my drugs for ivf. My infertility coverage is not very good, but my drug coverage is awesome. I have paid $200 total for all my drugs this cycle. The street price would have been around $5000. I hope AF arrives soon for you.
