Hi Frankme, that's a long wait! I'm praying for you! Please keep me updated!

AF showed today, so monitoring starts tomorrow. The call this procedure overlap so from day 3-7 I'm on Femara and days 5-10 I'm on Gonal F injections, and then ovidrel trigger and progesterone suppositories. Ill be monitored with blood work and ultrasound the entire time and they will tell me when to BD. I'm praying this works!

Franny- hope your first injection goes well. You will be surprised at how easy it easy! Hoping for lots of potential follicles tomorrow! I am feeling fine. I've been bloated pretty much all week and the boobs are really starting to get sore, but I attribute it all to the meds.

Thanks for the advice! That sounds promising! T must be hard not to symptom spot. Are you on promethium? (I think that's how you spell it) lol

I guess my HCG booster shot replaces the progesterone suppositories. That's what I have read anyways. I did have my progesterone checked 7DPO and was at 34. Doc was happy with it so I guess I am too. I'm not very knowledgeable about it so not sure what the "normal" range is.

If I can figure out how to upload a pic I will. I am patiently waiting on the doctor to call with my beta results from yesterday. I was starting to trip myself out because I was taking tests and I didn't think they were getting darker. Last night I took one and it was really light. I tried not to freak out and didn't even show my DH. I know my pee was really light/diluted so I tried to convince myself that is why it was such a light line. Luckily this morning's was very dark...my darkest yet! So I am feeling a lot better but still will be extremely nervous until I take another beta Monday and get the results that show its rising. I will let you know what my beta is when the doctor calls.

How are you doing??

Omg those are dark lines! That awesome!!! Yay! Let me know what your beta number is, I'm so excited for you!

I'm 2dpo, I just have really sore nipples but I'm assuming that's still part of ovulation.
