Hey ladies...And welcome Lynn!

So, I'm recovered from my OHSS and I started AF last night in the middle of the night. I hollered at my nurse, and she said that she and my doctor had spoken about trying to fast track me a bit, and skipping the birth control, since I don't react well to it. So, I'll have a baseline US on Friday, and IF my ovaries are calm enough, then I'll be on track for a Dec 21st transfer!!! However, there is a chance that the ultrasound on Friday could show that my ovaries are still too amped up from retrieval, and if that ends up being the case, then I'll start birth control then, and transfer will be more like early/mid January.
I'm excited to have the possibility of fast tracking a bit...and very grateful to my doctor for understanding my situation.

Puddles - fingers crossed!!

Danaa - so soon! You must be excited!

Had an appointment with my RE today. We were able to sign consent, but, looks like we will not be able to start my protocol at the start of my upcoming cycle. During my saline ultrasound they thought the may have seen "something" they thought maybe a polyp, so I assumed it was the same polyp I had during my previous cycle. The doctor wants to complete another saline ultrasound but this time the doctor herself will compete the procedure to see if she can determine if there is an issue with my uterus. The good news is that she is going to put me on birth control pills at the start of my next cycle so she can manipulate my cycle, that way if she doesn't find anything she can take me off the pills so I get AF again and can start protocols. If she does find something she said she will keep my on birth control and take me off once I'm good to go. So I'm back to the waiting.....

Hi ladies!
Sorry have been missing- have been craaazy tired on these stims, just falling asleep every two seconds lol! And then with work then coming home, having tothink about what protein rich meal to cook is like urrrgh cannot be bothered hehe!

So going in for egg collection Monday, had 12 follicles, 3 measuring 20, then a few at 18/17 then 16,15 and one at 9 , so triggering tonight and going in Monday morning!
So worried about there being no good quality eggs or that they won't fertilise- so praying super hard that they do xxx

Fur- sorry to hear about polyp :( hope its sorted asap so you can move on with the cycle!

Puddles- 21st dec!!! That will be here before you know it :) and so happy you got your transfer date!

Danaa- i know what you mean, time is flying by it's crazy- also natural to feel like OMG am I ready but to answer you lol- YES you are ready! We are all ready!!

Jwifey- hope meds are okay, do you know when you're likely to be on the nexy cycle?

Lots of love and prayers ladies xxxx

Johnyswife is interesting that ur doc is checking ur levels during a transfer,very cautious,I like that,not many bother like my doc.
Amouna you go girl,your eggs will fertilize and you will have more than enough embryos.
We are ready!!!
I transferred 2 day 5embryos,most clinics aim for day5 embryos,blastocyst they are called but there tons of success stories out there with day3 embryos,there is no better place for a baby to grow than his mommys tummy,don't worry about that.
I can't believe im like a week away from my transfer....jeez lol.
Excited!!!

Danaa I know me too lol! Except my excitement is blurred by freaking out about Monday and them surviving lol! I want to do 2 (if I have any!) but my clinics leaning towards one because of my age but still, I don't see how two doesn't up the chances so going to ask if there are 2 ofcourse...thanks for your encouraging words :) praying so hard for us all :)

Doing the trigger tonight, I read somewhere that it hurts , how did you find it?xxxx

My triggers never hurted me but i had a Decapetyl one for my Ivf and Ovidrele for the times intercourse ones.
Are you using Pregnyl?
You have to stay positive and think happy thoughts.
I have no idea if two embryos will maximize our chances or not,Im transferring two bcs i would really love twins and this way if I don't have money for Ivf in the future I get two babies a big happy family.

I'd love twins as well :) yeah i'm using pregnyl, got to do one more buserelin at 5:50 then pregnyl 7:50 and hoping the stimms i took last night have pushed some of my follicles over the 18mm mark lol!
I think the time from egg collection to hopefully God willing transfer is going to draaaaaaaaag lol. How does it feel after egg collection? Is it sore?xxxx

I felt just a tiny bit sore right after but once I got home and slept i felt totally fine except some minor bloating and discomfort but i must say it was easier than I expected for me bcs I had OHSS in the past and it wasn't fun at all.
We are all different so our bodies work differently,you may feel something or you may not.
For sure the Pregnyl will help the follies mature.

Hi ladies
Amouna- Triggers don't hurt anymore than the stim injections you're currently on.
I was just a tiny bit sore after EC and it wasn't unbearable. I noticed I urinated a bit more too! But in all actuality, I was just fine after EC and my RE retrieved 16! I'm so excited for Monday for you, you'll do great and produce many mature eggs ready to be fertilized! Every transfer I've done have been 5 day blastocysts and I've always transferred 2 except for the previous cycle which I transferred 1 and got a BFP! My meds are going great, I'm due to transfer around 12/14!

Danaa- I'm glad they check my levels so they know I'm right on track!!! I'll have a scan in another week or so so check my lining
