    I would think you should be feeling ok to go back to work after having the weekend off. You may have some discomfort and bloating afterwards. Saying that, each ER is different. My 2nd ER I was absolutely miserable and was down until my 5dt. I think I had a case of OHSS but my RE begged to differ (his nurse tried telling me it was anxiety). I was so bloated, it hurt to breath and my hgb had dropped. I think I was bleeding into my belly. My 1st and 3rd ER I was fine by the next day. Did your RE think you could conceive naturally before starting IVF? If this doesn't work for you, I hope you are able to try to conceive naturally.

    Jenni...how are you liking your Kindle? I don't have a Kindle. DH and I have an iPad but we don't do much on it except games. He does some audio CMEs on there also. I still read the old fashion way. I like to have a book in hand to read. I also don't tweet. Don't understand it. I spend too much time on facebook.

    This morning I'm going out for coffee with my violin teacher the ladies I played violin with in the recital on Sunday. Not much else on the agenda today. Need to make cookies.

    As for the ER, the first one I felt okay by that afternoon. Even with this last one and the med reaction, I was feeling better by the next day. Just listen to your body and rest when you feel you need to rest. Big hugs with everything. You are getting so close!

    I am enjoying my Kindle more than I thought I would. DH is a little too attached to his gadgets and checks them first thing when he gets up and last thing before going to bed. I'm not that way because frankly there's nothing going on that I feel needs my immediate attention KWIM? It has been nice to have Pandora on while cooking. I had avoided Facebook for so long because I didn't want to see all of the baby/preggo announcements. DH and I joked that right now we are in a good place because everyone that would make an announcement either just had a baby or is already pregnant

    Enjoy your coffee Meg!

    Hi ladies!!! Sorry I have not been around lately. Thursday AF showed up and I just broke down. I really do not know what happened. I knew it was coming but it hit me like a ton of bricks. Plus this has been the worst AF ever. The cramps were awful, headaches and nausea kept me in bed. How was your AF after failed cycle? Was it really heavy and long? Did you have lots of cloths? My period is usually 3 days bleed 1 day spotting, but it is still going full force. I know this is TMI, but any advice would be helpful. Should I call my RE?

    Jenni - I love my kindle! I have the 2nd generation so it is good for reading only, but I love it because it looks just like page in a book and it is very light. Plus I now have all my books with me at all times I hope you are feeling better!!

    Meg - How was the recital? Enjoy your coffee

    Tiffany - I was perfectly fine the day of my ER. As soon as anesthesia wore off I was fine. However, I did take additional day off just in case

    I'm so sorry Mimi! For me at least, AF showing up was like the last bit of hope leaving. It made it all so final. My RE told me after the first cycle that AF was going to be heavier than usual. Apparently your lining is a bit thicker? IDK. Maybe that's why you are having clots as well. I was told that if you are soaking through a pad every hour or two to call. FWIW, this AF for me has been horrible as well - physical and emotional. Big hugs! I wish we lived closer because we could have a joint crying session.

    Mimi...I've been thinking about you. I do beleive it is normal for AF to be heavier after a failed cycle. You've been taking progesterone and that thickens your lining. I would take Jenni's advice...if you are soaking through a pad in an hour or two, then call.

    Jenni...I'm probably a bit like your DH. I'm always checking facebook and email. More out of boredom than anything. I never post on facebook, just like to see what everyone else is up to. It's amazing some of the stupid stuff ppl put on facebook.

    Coffee was good. My violin teacher paid for everyone's. Totally not expected since I'm the one who invited everyone. We talked about what could be differently to shorten the recital time. It was 2 hrs 15 minutes. The evening of the recital she read her devotional and it was about how God does not want us on the performance treadmill. He wants us to feel good about ourselves whether we perform perfectly or not. We as humans are addicted to feeling good about ourselves only when we perform well. He doesn't want us to be filled with pride, but He didn't create us to reject ourselves. We are to let our confidence be based on who we are in Christ. She gave me a copy of it and I need to keep all of that in mind. It was very coincidental that that was her devotion for the night of the recital.

    That was nice of your teacher to treat everyone. What a wonderful devotion. It never ceases to amaze me how and when God "talks" to me through others. Yoga has definitely helped me "honor" myself where I'm at right now. Such powerful but extremely difficult concepts.
    Another rough day over here but not as bad as Friday. DH and I are going to try out a new group at church tonight. It's a group of Young Adults that have gotten together and have been meeting for a while. Not sure about it though because we are past the age "limit" but were assured by the minister that put it together (who is our age) that we'll be fine. Another way that IF is messing us up. If we had kids, we could just join the children's ministry. As it stands, we are too old for "Young Adult" (mostly right-out-of-college) but too "young" for true Adult classes (40+ since most people with preschool to elementary aged kids hang out together). I'm looking forward to meeting new people and hoping that it doesn't blow up in my face.

    Sorry today is another rough day. I hope you enjoy the new group at church tonight. It's nice that you have those things to get involved in. We don't really have many adult groups around here. It's harder for DH and I since he is 13 yrs older than me. I say we meet in the middle as far as age.

    Children mentioned.....
    I have a hard time meeting women my age since my kids are older. Women my age have small children. I have a 9, 10 and 12 year old so women with children those ages are quite a bit older than me-mid to late 40's. But I just tell myself that my kids will be graduated from high school by the time I'm 39. That's what makes me feel better about that situation. It's hard being in that "middle" age group range. You just feel like you don't fit in.

    I'm getting more into "The Hunger Games." I've had the book for a few days but only read a few pages. Now that I've started, it's going well.

    What books are you reading right now Jenni?

    My lemon cookies turned out well. I have some pork chops marinating in a recipe I found online, then we are going to grill them. I also found a recipe for grilled potatoes I'm going to try tonight.

    It is going to be awesome having kids in college by 39. I am not sure if you like to travel like me, but that opens a world of amazing possibilities. You seem like an "old soul" anyway; very mature for your age - in a good way. Already seeing the big picture in life. It is a gift.

    I hope to make some friends with some women who are slightly older than the child bearing demographic, maybe around 40. I understand how sad it can make someone to keep seeing their pregnant friends and then getting those "why not me?" thoughts. I don't think I could quite quit facebook... but I have thought about it. Probably would be good for me, but we keep up with so much extended family and friends through it. In fact, had an impromptu dinner with friends last night - all because a friend posted "Let's go to Pluckers!" It was awesome. Not sure if the friends we make in Minnesota will use it the same way.

    children mentioned...

    DH and I want to do lots of traveling when the kids are in college and he is retired. He's been working hard to retire early. He's hoping to semi-retire when our youngest graduates highschool. We want to do everything that we didn't get to do as newlyweds since when we got married we had a family right away. I tease that I married a "ready-made family."

    I don't think I could ever give up facebook either. My DH has it but never checks it. It's just a bad habit I've gotten myself into.
