Hey Bitty... sorry for the delay... I'm a nurse in the ER and the last few days were nuts! Your last post made complete sense to me... thanks again for your thoughts... ugghh this waiting before transfer is making me go "googlecrazy"! I left a message for my doc today ... to discuss some of this stuff... he's out of the country till weds... so I will definitely let you know what he says about 5 vs 6 day blast transfer... my nurse said he'll call on weds.... regardless.... the hardest part is over for now! And we are both transferring soon!!! I'm so excited for us!!

Frozen, I'll be excited to hear what your doc has to say!
I've got a saline ultrasound tomorrow with my doc, and I'll ask her as well.

You mentioned how close it's getting and how excited you are...which is AWESOME and I'm excited too...however, since this is our 3rd transfer, our 3rd year of trying and a whoooooooole lot of waiting, I'm almost waited out! (I think I'm just going through an impatient phase, because normally I'm a very patient person!) But I'm READY to be pregnant again...have it be an ESTABLISHED pregnancy that I don't have to worry about all the time and just a moment to relax and know I'm going to be a mama!
When I get like this, I know I'm getting and thinking too "big picture"...so, I looked at my transfer schedule and realized that I'll be starting estridol in 8 days! Which for me is huge, because estridol makes me SLEEP (which will be a welcome change for me...the last couple weeks I've been getting very little and very poor quality sleep)...extreme sleepiness isn't normally a side effect of estridol, but it is for me for whatever reason. And since I know I've got about a week of "productivity" left for myself, I'm excited to make a list of all the things I wished I had gotten done before last transfer (because I didn't want to do any heavy lifting or didn't feel ambitious enough to start)...suddenly 8 day doesn't seem long enough, and once estridol starts, everything else comes fast! NOW I'M EXCITED!!!

JohnnysWifey, I'm glad you've got a bit of a timeline in place...that's always a relief to know!

I had another saline ultrasound yesterday to make sure that all was well after the miscarriage. She said everything looked great, and I can't wait to get these embryos in me!!!

Hello friends.... well I talked to my doc about 5 vs 6 day blasts and according to him there is no difference in pregnancy rates... this is a relief! So, we have decided we will transfer 2 pgs tested embies.... 1 5 day little boy and 1 6 day little girl... I'm so sorry that you have been through these failed transfers.... this process has been so emotionally draining and I know all and all things have gone fairly smooth for me at this point.... It would be so amazing if this worked for all of us this cycle!! I lost my father in September.., it was totally unexpected... he has a heart attack in front of us... we did cpr... but he did not recover.... he wanted to be a grandfather so bad.. in fact the plan was for him to retire and take care of the babies when I returned to work.... I just know he is pulling some strings for me.... and I'm going to ask him to hook you guys up too!!! My father was a wonderful man... he devoted his whole life to helping mentally ill adults.. and he changed many lives for the better..... so I know he has some brownie points to cash in!!

Oh Frozen, I'm so sorry you lost your father. He sounds like he was an amazing man. I'm sure he's watching you and making sure your babies come to you!

I'm glad to hear about the 5 v.6 day embryos (esp. Since I only have 6 day embryos!!!)
We are transferring 2 this time as well. And whenever I think about the future, my brain automatically fills in the spaces where our kids are with B/G or G/G twins. Who knows if that's just wishful thinking or intuition!
Today is my last day of BCPs, so hopefully I'll get a period Monday-ish and then I'll REALLY feel like it's almost transfer time!!

Hello ladies.
My period is stalling, so I'm just waiting for it to come full force.
How is everyone else doing? Any news?

Hey bitty!!! Glad your on track!!! I am too!! Although I think our protocols are slightly different... I started Lupron injections 2/17... got my period 2/21... continue Lupron daily until 3/1...then add estrogen 3/1 and progesterone 3/15.... has anyone used Lupron? I had a opened bottle that is suppose to expire 30 days after opening... but I've kept it in the fridge... it's only been opened for 25 days... and I've read people have used it until 60 days... and it's is 500 a bottle... so I decided to use it up... I hope I don't screw this up... it's supposed to keep me from ovulating... anyone have any experience ?

Also, for my transfer date my "due date" would be Nov 30 if it takes, and today is the first day that the Ovia Pregnancy app will let me register a pregnancy with that due date...one more thing to make it feel close!

Weird that I'm like 3 weeks closer to my due date if both embryos take!! :shock:
