:jump: OMG Kris!! :jump: That's awesome news!!!! Grow little one grow!!!! So happy for you!

Nicrye- That's exactly the protocol I was on too, but I didn't have the pen. Good luck with your stims! I can't believe mine are over already and yours will be over before you know it. Now that's it's over it wasn't so bad :wink:

medical- :jump: :jump: Last day of Lupron!! YAY!!!

Lorrie - Really hoping that cyst is going away. FX for good news for you on Wednesday!!!
Thanks so much for telling me how you did it! I'm thinking of talking to the doctor and ask about suppositories. I'll do it, but I'm really not looking forward to 45 shots in each hip. There has to be another way.

irish- Thinking of you and everything crossed for Wednesday. I don't know exactly how it goes, but I'm sure they are going to thaw beautifully!!! And by the way lady, you know guilt is completely useless. You know very well that you did not wish it upon yourself. You are way too smart for that. :wink: This is going to work for you I feel it. :D

AFM - The RV park is beautiful and we are really enjoying it. My appt went really well this morning, but I forgot to ask for exactly how many follies and she never called with my E2, but that doesn't matter because today was my last day of STIMS!! Didn't know until the nurse sat down with us after the u/s. They told me to do HCG tonight and transfer Tuesday!!! Another appt tomorrow, Monday, at 9 am for b/w, but no u/s, darn it. Wish me luck girls I can't believe it's almost time!!!!

Awwww Anna.... Thanks you... You know how we get... It's so hard to not wonder what we could've done differently.... That and these hormonal drugs kind of mess with your mind as well... Thank god my DH loves me!

Lorrie: Sorry, just double checked your status on the main board... i was wondering how you jumped ahead to testing.LOL Duhhhh... I had a blond moment... But I thinkthe drugs are making me a little duhh as a side effect....

I think I'm gunna take Nyquil the nite before to help me pass out and get some sleep... I should sleep like a baby... Well if the baby doesn't wake up during the nite.... Arghhhh...LOL He's a nite owl and hasn't slept through the nite sense he came home from NICU... It's a little better where he'll go back to sleep, but still... Forget the consistant 8 hours... LOL Gotta love him though... You ladies... Keep fighting the fight... It was so hard when I went through the 4 years of TTC naturally before I did IVF and got my DS... I had almost given up hope and thought that maybe it wasn't menat to be... Hold my son.... Him sleeping in my arms at nite... Makes me realize that there is no way my feelings that "it maybe wasn't meant to be" was ever an option.

The moral of this story... Is although my son can be a handful, I'm glad i never gave up... I'm glad I kept getting back on the horse no matter how hard I got kicked off... Ladies, we may not all get BFPsthis time around, but non of our cycles are failed... We've learned so much from each cycle... It will bring us closer to being mothers one way or anouther...

That's my rambelings for today ladies.... :D

Good luck Anna, let us know how it goes.

Has anyone heard from Akachan, she had ER on Sunday.

Lorrie, I hope that nasty cyst went away. I've been praying for you.

Nicrye, horay, stimming now.. Congrats on the next step.

Irish, finally all that pain around my ovaries left. I guess they finally o'ed. Dh and i are planning on BD tonight cause i read somewhere that it helps with transfer. Am i correct? Two more days to FET for you. I'm so excited.

afm, i took my first progesterone shot in oil last night. It wasnt so bad as i thought it would be. It didnt really hurt at all. Then again, does anyone have any tips on how to get it out of the bottle. I struggled last night.
I also started lovenox last night.. now that is a shot that hurts and of course you cant rub it to make it better. We took the pio first so i could rub that one in a little. the lovenox stings like crazy and of course i have to bleed with that one.. thankful for bandaids. lol

I'm waiting to hear from the embyrologist today on how my little embie is doing and my transfer time tomorrow. I will keep you all posted.

Hey Everyone!

No time right now but just wanted to say ER went great yesterday. They retrieved six eggs and I'll get the fertilization report today. I'll KUP.

Kris - yeah for the growing embie! I was also thinking maybe you shouldn't bd for the others b/c of possible infection... Best of luck tomorrow!!

Anna - Wow, you too! Excellent!! Fingers crossed. How fun to be camping!

Nic- Congrats on commensing stims! Goes fast... 15 follies AFC is great. You should stim well and get a lot of eggies to choose from.

Lorrie - Hoping Weds will give you great news about cyst.

Irish - Push those thoughts away!! Great looking eggs! I transferred two Bs and a C at 3dt and got my daughter (who is brilliant) from that!

Medical - Congrats on no more Lupron!

Kris: I can't believe you ET is here finally... As for BD... Yes, you could get an invection, but you are also on antibiotics and your retrieval was two days ago. The holes they make are the size of a 30 gage needle, which is huge needle wise, but is quick to seal and heal. So, go ahead and BD before the transfer... If you already feel relief then more then likely they already released and you might miss them, but do it for fun. They say the seman has a chemical in it that relaxes the body and makes acceptance of the embryos easier... No major scientic backing sense implantation is still a mystery in the reproductive world. Why healthy embryos don't make it, yet weak ones still can... You just never know what happens to them after they leave the lab and are placed in your body...
I'm eating pinapple because it has stuff in it that is suspected to make a more condusive environment for your embryo... Even if it's not true... Pinapple is really healthy...

Anna: YEah!!! :jump: I'm so excited for you lady.... You had better post the report as soon as you know them... I'm so anxios to know how many you'll have and if they'll grow them out to the 5days... That would make your transfer only a day or two before mine maybe mine.. I think you said something about them doing 4 dt... That would place you right around St Patty's day or on it... Woooohooo... Anouther St Patty's Day Transfer! I've started an empidemic.LOL

Medical: Hope your doing alright and staying buisy so the remaining TWW untill the ET isn't driving you crazy like it is me...LOL

akachan: Thanks girl! And look at you.. 6 eggs! You'll definately have to keep us posted on the progress... So when will be your transfer? Are you doing a 3dt again? I can't believe so many girls are now going to be doing their ET near, on or around St Patty's Day... It's gotta be a good sign for us all that quite a few of us ended up with that time for an ET. There's anouther girl on anouther forum that will be getting her beta that day... Sooooo exciting...

Lorrie: I hope the cyst doesn't become a problem and they can push forward with everything. I have heard of women getting cysts during their stimming or before it and it didn't effect their outcome... Definately discuss the options and tell them you want to get back on track ASAP.

Nic: Keep us posted on your progress lady.... We want to know how the stimming is going for you!

AFM: I'm eating pinapple just because I did the last IVF according to my Journal and it was sucessful... Trying to do everything the same way.... Do have a bit of a dilemma... My Estrace is running out tonight so I need to get ahold of my RE to change the location for my refills.. They have this one through a pharmacy in Tucson which was fine at the time because I could just drop by and pick everything up.... But Im 90 miles away from there and won't be anywhere near it for anouther 2 days....
Trying to stay buisy as always... Trying to keep my mind buisy.... I know that is under 48 hours my embryo will be dethawing.... I hope they don't get too much damage from the freeze... Hoping they are both there and doing excellent when I arrive first thing int he mourning 10:45... Hoping it's a very Lucky St Patty's Day for all of us!

Irish, i was only told to refrain from BD for 24 hours after the surgery. that is all. We still refrained last night cause i wasnt feeling the best. I still had ovary pain but today i am good as new and cant wait to do what i can for the little embie. I have a feeling this is going to be my miracle child.

I cant believe all the transfers going on this week. Me tomorrow, you and aka wed, and anna at the end of the week.. well they say people get pregnant together and i am a firm believer in it..
we are so close how can it not happen for all of us.

Anna, i'm so excited for you. Its three days from retrieval at our location. I had retrieval on sat and transfer on tues. Your almost there. I am so happy.

Irish, i wish i had more information. All they said is the little embie is dividing and growing perfectly.. i'm taking it for what its worth.. my little embie is a fighter and wants to be born.

also.. hey, i'm rubbing shoulders with everyone.. we're all in this together. My mood is definitely better. I cant wait to have my embie in me and then i will be praying for a sticky bean. i cant believe its almost up to bean stage. :jump:

Aka, 6 is great. Let us know how the fertilization report goes today. your little embies are sitting by mine. (Mine is waving :hi: )

Its gonna be a very interesting two weeks.

Medical, how are you doing?

Lorrie... sending you some more anti cyst dust.
