All systems go!

Just thought I would put this on the main board in guess some of y'all don't read the Chat thread. I'm gearing up for lucky (right?) try #3. I've been on Lupron for a week and a half now. All my scans have looked great. I start stimming on Saturday!! Yahoo Next scan is Wednesday. We are looking at an ER around the end of the week after next. I'm on the same protocol as last time but adding HCG with the Follistim. It worked once, it'll work again right?

I'm so excited for you to get started with the "real stuff." When do you do the HCG? On my last cycle I did a different type of trigger shot than before. I'm thinking it was the HCG. My RE was going to have me take a full dose at the time of trigger, then 12 hrs later take a 1/2 dose in hopes of having more mature eggs. It turns out that he didn't have me do those doses since my E2 level was actually too high and he was worried about me actually hyperstimulating.

Meg - I'm taking my HCG at the same time as my Follistim (2 shots but what can you do?). Last time they had me add Menopur (sp?) for a few days towards the end to boost things. My understanding is that the HCG will help with that from the beginning. Apparently it is a compound that had to be mixed and has a short shelf life - I had to order it separately so that it wouldn't expire before I needed it. I'm getting more excited and less nervous about the whole thing. DH has been so supportive. We've been trying to "speak it into existence" - saying "when" and not "if" and "this is our time". We are going to the first UNC football game tomorrow but luckily it's a noon-thirty game so I don't have to worry about taking my shots with us.

Jenni,
I think it is great to say "when" and not "if"!! It's hard to do, but I think it is a great mind set to be in going into your ER. Fingers crossed and prayers said for your little "charm"!!! :goodluck:

So glad you are getting started! I did an HCG trigger, but only right before retrieval. Wishing you the best of luck!!! Will be checking for you updates!

Back from my scan today. Dr says I'm responding really well!! Beautifully I think she said Wink I'm to keep with my shots unless she calls this afternoon to tweak it. I go back Friday morning. She said possibly a Sun trigger with a Tuesday ER :jawdrop: I'm getting more and more excited but the doubt started to kick in this morning. If you are so inclined any good thoughts and/or prayers for peace are greatly appreciated!!

Heard back from the RE yesterday - my levels are amazing and they actually decreased my dosage. :eek: It's usually the other way around. It does seem like the side effects have hit me all of the sudden though. Another appt in the morning.

That's great they are needing to decrease your doseage. That happened to me my last cycle and it's the cycle that I had the most follies and eggs retrieved. Good luck tomorrow!

Another great appt this morning. My levels are apparently so good that they are moving things up to Monday!! We have to be there at 7:30 AM EST. I'm excited but also floored. Y'all I NEVER imagined that I would respond this well. I really hope with all my might that this means that my quality is good. If we could get just one (okay, maybe 2 or 3) really good quality embryos... Please let it work this time!
