Hi Kylie,
Thanks for your kind words and prayers. I know what you mean about the reset button, that's how I feel too. I have a scan tomorrow to see how my follies are doing. I will most likely be going in everyday from now on until I ovulate. Ill keep you posted on the number of follies and sizes.

You must be excited to starts stims again soon. Every cycle is like a breath of fresh air and hope for the best. I'm finding it hard to stay happy and positive especially when it feels like everyone around me is pregnant or giving birth. But I need to stay positive.

I'm praying for you too! Here's to New Years babies!!

How's the stimming going, Franny? Will you be doing a trigger shot soon? Hope things are looking good! Looks like I am starting injections on Thursday. This will most likely be my last try on these type of cycles. They really want me to try IVF again but I just can't afford it. I am not sure what to do next. I can either keep saving to do aiVF over and over and keep hoping it might work...or adopt. Both are going to take a lot of time for me to afford :(

Hi Kylie,
How are you doing? I hope that this cycle works for you and you won't have to worry about saving for IVF.

As for me, I triggered on Monday night, so I'm praying this cycle works out :)

Hey Franny! Congrats on getting to trigger! Hope baby dancing was fun and works this time around!!! ;) how many follies did you end up with this time?

I have been off the Birth Control now since Monday...and I will be starting stims tonight. My clinic is closed over the weekend...so we are going to just stim away and then check blood levels on Monday. I may get a scan on Tuesday if Mondays estrogen shows a decent rise.

Well.. Good to hear you are positive and praying! Praying for you too! Let me know when those symptoms start hitting!

How's the two week wait going, Franny?
I am in day 6 of stims and have my first ultrasound in the morning to see how things are going! Hope you are doing well!

Hi Kylie! I'm so sorry I didn't get back to you sooner! How are you doing??? How are the stims working for you? How many follies? Is it BD time yet?

As for me, I'm 10dpo today, and I have my beta test booked for Easter Monday, my RE likes to do it at 12dpo, if it comes back negative he pulls me off the progesterone and AF will be here Wednesday.

I had 3 follies, one at 22mm at the time of trigger and the others 19mm. This ovulation was different from the last. I didn't feel it or was as painful as I was last month. It was actually like my unmed cycles, a little bit of tugging.... I hope they all got released!

As for symptoms the only thing out of the norm is that I'm itchy, and I woke up with a sore throat on 7&8 dpo and it went away later in the day... I have a runny nose too. Must be getting a cold. Other than that nothing. I don't "feel" pregnant... Also I told myself that I'm not testing this month, I'm just going to wait for my beta on Monday.

Thank you for the prayers, i will pray for you as well! Happy Easter! And keep me updated!!!

Hi Franny!
I am hoping you got good news today!!! Your symptoms sounded like ones that I have heard associated with BF'P's! If for some reason the news was not good, I am sorry and I hope and pray that you get that positive soon!

I triggered Friday morning... I had two follies at 15 and 18. So I guess by the time I ovulated I hope at least one was mature. I decided since this is kind of my last try after 5 years of TTC, I am not going to test at all during this cycle and just wait to see what happens. In fact, I am positive that if I let myself even think about it... I will get too emotional and worry too much with it being my last attempt (that the dr.s say will be beneficial at this point) if it doesn't work out... I will take a deep breath... Go get the new tattoo I've been wanting... And figure out a way to make enough money to try IVF again...no matter how long it takes.

Hi Kylie,
I think your plan is a good one. We obsess so much that it places stress on ourselves and it affects the outcome.

Unfortunately my test was negative. AF should be here tomorrow or Thursday.... We might try IUI this cycle, haven't decided yet...

I'm prying for you! Keep me posted!

Hey Franny...
Looks like it's a negative. I never tested but AF is on the way. I dropped my dog of 13 years off at the emergency vet tonight... Hoping they can save his life from a crisis they think may be Addison's disease. This has just been an all around awful day! In the midst of many tears, my husband and I decided we would just stop trying for now. We need some fun in life again without a huge letdown every month. If we are meant to ever have a kid, I have to trust God that somehow it will happen. For now, I want to try and see what life was like before this near 5 year journey of constantly trying. Have you moved on to IUI's yet? If you have started a cycle, sending positive vibes and would love to keep in touch!

Hi Kylie,
I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. I understand your frustration and your need to relax and place focus else where. My husband and I are feeling the same way. If this cycle is not successful we are taking a break and going to enjoy the summer.

I wish you all the best :). And I would like to keep in touch too :)

I recently completed menopur cycle. I started out on 6/19 menopur 150 x 4 days then estradiol was 560 on 6/23 so Md put me on 75 for 3 days then wed. 6/25 estradiol was 1236 so had hcg trigger on 6/26. I had 2 mature follies on right and 1 mature with medium and smaller follies on left. I'm currently about 1dpo, will have beta 7/10

Hi, I'm new to this board. I am 37 years old and I have TTC since 2010. It is unknown why I am having fertility issues. I do have children already but my husband and I want one more. I just found out I have one blocked tube. I stated a new treatment this month. Menapur and Ovidrel with timed intercourse. I have had my blood work and Ultrasounds done and was told to trigger today and "get busy" this weekend. I had 4 follicles on my side with the good tube, sizes 20,19,14,13. I'm so scared and tired of disappointment. Has anyone else tried or known anyone who has tried these medications with timed intercourse?
