I don't think there is anyone around here cycling. It is pretty slow. Good luck with your FET. Keep us updated on how things are going. Can't wait to follow your journey!

Well, i'll just post my cycle stuff in here, so i'm not bogging down the chat thread with my FET stuff...
Day3 of lurpon, and last day for BCP! totally bloated, but haven't gained weight yet, so that's a plus. Stomach is a bit more uncomfortable, but i think that's from the bloating.....which i'm not happy that im so bloated so early.....ugh.
Less then a month now and ill be PUPO! can't wait.... things are becoming more real now with the shots and even DH is talking more and more about it, which is nice, cuz i kinda felt like he wasn't really on board, but he is much more excitied about it now that ive started lupron....the big ole PIO shots are at the end of the month - i'm NOT looking forward to those, but he did really well with them last time, so i'm hoping it goes as good this time.

Next apt is next week to check and see how everything is doing and then i'll start patches soon after that.....

We're doing a donor cycle, with estimated egg retrieval on 4/5, and transfer about 4/10. Just finished week 1 of Lupron and took the last birth control pill tonight.

hi mrs chris - good luck on your upcoming cycle..... how many will you be transfering? We'll be transfering two. I just started patches last week and tomorrow i go for bldwrk and us.... hopefully all is continuing to go well... i'm really excitied but a little gaurded......

That's odd, I just replied and it disappeared! Anyway I'm leaning towards transferring two, but a lot will depend on how many we end up with, how I'm feeling, and what the doctors recommendations are.

Good luck on your cycle! I'm scared of the progesterone shots. That's the only part of this whole deal that has me freaked out.

Carole - I hope you get two healthy ones to transfer. I am sure he will recommend to transfer more than 1 if possible based on your age. It is so scary cycling and just hoping to make it over every hurdle.

Grovey2 - Hope your embies take. Having twins has been a challenge, but I love them so much and I can't imagine my life without either of them.

Neon, I'm doing donor eggs, so my age will not be a factor.

Hi G and Reb! Our donor did her egg retrieval this morning - sixteen eggs! Hooray! We're on pins and needles for out fertilization report on Friday, and hopeful transfer on Monday.

The progesterone shot is a stinker. I'm hoping to find better ways, because that sucker hurts.

I'm excited to be following your cycles - I hope this is a great month for all of us.

So exciting to have more activity on this board and cycles to follow again Smile Good luck, hope you get a good fertility report. I replied on another post today about progesterone shots & how to make it a little easier - they can be a pain in the butt literally Blum 3

C- that's soooo great !!! Awesome amount of eggs!!!
Will you be getting the fert report?

Reb- 16th will be here before you know it.

Are either of you testing before beta? I haven't decided yet- I think I may just have them call at work if its positive and my cel is its negative and keep my cell in my car.

Afm- transferred two beautiful babies

Sorry couldn't get in here yesterday. They called yesterday morning (friday - retrieval was Wed) and said that 11 of the 16 had fertilized normally and were dividing.

Woo HOOOOOOO!

Next Report: Sunday Morning. Transfer on Monday.

Got our report. On day 3 all 11 were still dividing. Go embies! Transfer at 10 tomorrow, we'll get the next embie update at that time. Less than 24 hrs now.

Trying to decide between 1-2 embies. Suspect DH and I are not in full agreement on that decision yet.

Thank you ladies! I did not sleep well last night. We have not made a decision but have decided to wait and listen to what the doctor tells us.

thinking of you mrs chris --- how'd it go today? How many did you end up transfering? How's everyone else doing?

afm- still debating if i should test or not..... decisions, decisions.....ugh.

It went well. Aftr much angst we put back one. Hoping and praying we made the right choice for us. We had 9 of the 11 suitable for transfer. Four were top quality, four more were just a tiny bit behind the first four and still considered very high quality and the last was still considered more than average. So we uave 8 frosties. Hooray!

My body was very good at getting pregnant even at advanced age so we are hoping that by using donor egg and treating my MTHFR & PAI 4/5 that maybe we'll finally get our happy beginning.

Carole...congrats on being PUPO!!! Sounds like you made a good decision on transferring one embie since you were able to freeze embies. My RE always did 2 weeks after the ET for the beta. Time went so slowly. Are you a POASer?

Julie...to test or not to test is a hard question. There is an arguement for both sides. With one cycle I didn't test because I want to think of myself pregnant for as long as possible. Had I tested and it was negative, my dream of being pregnant would be over. Preg mentioned...this was the cycle that was positive. My last cycle I tested before my beta because I just knew it didn't work. I went into my blood test knowing that it would be negative so the call from the RE wouldn't be as hard. I'm sure you know all of this from going through IVF before. When is your beta? Are you having any symptoms?

Carole- glad things went well and here's hoping the one you put back is the one

Afm- well.... I tested. I have had some major heartburn, I felt shaky yesterday (had similar symptom with dd) and today when DH have me a hug- my bbs were sore.... I've been crampy on and off -- I tested this morning and there was barely a line - tested tonight and its for sure there!!!! Ill upload a pic tomorrow.... I've never tested in the tww before so I don't know what to do or think.... I just hope it's real... My beta isn't until next week-- ugh

Julie...Congrats!! Yahoo The line sounds promising. And you since you did a FET you don't have to wonder if it's the trigger left in your system. Can't wait for the lines to get darker and for your beta.

Carole - congrats on being PUPO. Hope your beta wait zooms by.

Julie - yea for a line! Like Meg said, at least you know it's not hcg shot lingering in your body. Hope that line gets darker!

Congratulations Grovey! Wonderful first beta.

As for me.... I now have TWO positive home tests. Calling the clinic in a few minutes to see if they'll go ahead and start betas rather than waiting until Saturday.

That's awesome on the positive HPTs. Bummer that you have to wait until Saturday for your beta.
