Hey Wifey!
Because our embryos were frozen over the holiday, we haven't had an actual conversation with our embryologist, but we did get an email that we have 4 embryos frozen...which is less than I'd figured, since our 3 day check-in was 16, but I'm pretty happy with that number! Hopefully we won't need another egg retrieval in this lifetime! Just waiting on AF now!

Puddles - 4 is great! When is AF due?

Danaa - fingers crossed! I'm sure everything will be great!

Johnnyswifey - good luck at your appointment tomorrow. keep us posted

Amouna - how are stims going?

AFM - sorry I've been MIA. I got a crazy cold that knocked me on my butt! I have all my blood work done and last eeek had the saline ultrasound. The think I have a polyp, but it looks like it might be the same one I had last time around? Which they left alone as is was not in a location which would impact pregnancy. I meet with the REbon Thursday to review all the tests and hopefully sign consent/submit to insurance. Fingers crossed it all goes smoothly.

Hi ladies, my name is Lynn. I was looking over some sites and saw this one. This is my first forum and wanted to check things out and get some positive thought/vibes and possible advice from people going through the same thing. I'm doing my first round of IVF after 4 failed IUI. I'm 38 years old and hv great egg reserve and no problems (thank God). My hubbie has as small male factor that was an issue. We are doing IVF with ICSI, so hopefully we will hv success. I hv started my injections Saturday and ready to get this party started:) I'll know on Dec 21st if we are sucessful.

Do any of you ladies have headaches from the Menopur?? I took Gonl without any issues but I have never took Menopur before.. I wish you all the best of luck in your journeys

Hi Lynn!!! Welcome to our thread! I haven't had any type of headache that I can remember while on Menopur.

Fur- I hate colds! EWWW! Hope you're feeling better and I pry for a smooth appt on Thursday

Puddles- 4 is great! When do we expect AF???

AFM- My appt today was a scare, I thought my cycle was going to be cancelled due to a 3.1 cm cyst on my right ovary; however, my bloodwork showed that it was not producing estrogen, so I can still proceed with my cycle! I am on to 5 units of lupron instead of 10 units and 1mg of Estrace twice per day starting today. Next appt is Monday 12/5. By 12/9, I should have a lining check and by 12/14, I should be transferring my baby girl!!!!!!

Polyps are not fun.
Puddles im happy to hear you have 4 babies,that si wonderful news,remember it only takes 1.
Afm what can I say,I had a rough week,mood swings a bit of anger,a slight hint of depression,all that for no reason,i blame the drugs!!

By the way did you guys gained any weight while u were preparing for FET?

Hey Danaa- surprisingly, I lost weight! It kept shedding and my DH and family thought something was wrong with me. After losing the baby, I gained a good 5 lbs and can't get rid of it! :x

Welcome Lynn! I never did menopur, have the headaches gotten any better?

Hi ladies!

Fur- So far the Lupron is ok; it's doing what it is supposed to be doing I suppose because even though I had a cyst, my e2 levels were low enough to continue the cycle. I've started my estrace yesterday evening and are taking them twice a day- so the only effects I've gotten right now are small batches of EWCM today, so, it looks like my body is responding to the meds wonderfully! :mrgreen:
