    Marisol - I hope things go well for you. I don't blame you for being nervous - I think we are all nervous every step of the way. The two week window, especially. Its one of the reasons DH pushed us to book the cruise we are going on in a couple weeks - just so that I would plan something else after working hard to "plan" my pregnancy for the last few months. I don't know if you have anything to plan coming up - even holiday presents or some kind of travel plans to think about... but it really helped me to focus on something else. I know you guys just went on a trip, but even planning something as far away as December would be therapeutic for me.

    Well she ended up extending it. ER will be Thursday, and I trigger tonight. She still wants me to have an U/S tomorrow, I guess to make sure those 2 folies aren't bleeding.

    Good luck Marisol!

    My doctor kept extending my trigger also....I had to order extra meds each time. Then the nurses told me it was typical to extend it! My retrieval was on day 14 for both my IVF's. The first time it stressed me out a bit, the second time I figured it was normal.

    Just give those follicles a little extra time to grow! I think if you are taking ganirelix you can't ovulate on your own. It suppresses your LH surge, if I am remembering correctly.

    Get lots of rest and let your doctor take care of everything!

    I know but I'm such a control freak! LOL!! I think all teachers are LOL!! I'm taking cetrotide because there is like a nationwide shortage of ganirelix! It's the same thing anyway. So I'm guessing this is going to be a 5dt, which has me nervous too since my quality is not good. BUT DH said yesterday,if they can't make it 5 days in a lab what makes you think they would have made it in your body. It stung a little but I guess it's true, even though he could have put it a little nicer! LOL!

    Mari- I know it is hard, but at least with a 5dt you know your chances are higher if they make it that far. I was very worried last time... had 6 embryos at 3 days and only 3 by 5 days (with only 2 of them being good quality - and not excellent quality). I had to order lots of extra meds with my cycle because I did not "stim" like they thought I would... and I concur that from what I read cetrocide should keep you from having your own LH surge. Follicles have to be pretty big to be "over-mature," so I don't blame your doc for giving the other follies time to catch up - seems like it would give you the best chance of success. I think all of us going through IVF are control freaks, otherwise we would have given up on our dream for biological kids and moved on to other options.

    She was right, the other follicles (not all) had a good chance to catch up so I ended up with like 5 follies from 22-to almost 24 mm. There were 2 that barely grew but oh well. She also let me know today that my hormones levels were "much" better this cycle. Overall, she seemed much more confident than last cycle (dunno just the expression on her face). I left feeling pretty good. So I'm injection free!! What a relief!! ER is tomorrow morning at 8am. I did what I could so now it's not up to me anymore. This is def. the worst part. Thank you ladies for reading all my posts, you guys really do make a difference BELIVE ME!!!

    I'm back from Sedona. Now it's back to the real world. We had an amazing trip. It is so beautiful there. We are already talking about our next trip there. I think the next time we go we'll do a lot more hiking since we saw the "touristy" stuff this time. We hiked about 15 miles when we were out there. We hiked up to Devil's Bridge and the base of Cathedral Rock. The horse back ride was so much fun. That was probably our favorite thing we did. It was on a real working ranch with horses that herd the cattle. The tours are their part time job. Had I known what I was signing up for I probably wouldn't have done it. I thought we'd follow a flat, smooth trail along the river. Oh no, we were going up mountains, back down them off the trail going straight down. We had to guide them and switch-back down the mountain. We walked them up the river through the water. It was so much fun. This was my first time actually riding a horse. Surprisingly I wasn't sore the next day after being on a horse for 3+ hours. I would highly recommend the place to anyone that visits the Sedona area. We drove up to the Grand Canyon and hiked a bit down that. On our anniversary we toured a winery and ate at a really nice Italian restuarant. Yesterday morning we did a hot air balloon ride. I thought I'd be really nervous for it but it was so calm and peaceful. I wasn't nervous one bit. I really went above and beyond what I normally would with the horse back ride, hiking up the mountains in really steep places and riding in a hot air balloon. Maybe this trip got some of my anxiety out of me. I think my DH was proud of how much I did.

    Hope everyone is doing well!

    Here are a few pics from the trip. Hopefully they turn out ok since I didn't go through photo bucket or anything. This is me on my horse, Antonio.

    A view of Sedona and another balloon from above


    A pic of us at one of the Pink Jeep Tour stops


    On top of Devil's Bridge. I walked away from it without getting a pic because I was too scared to go on it. Then I decided to turn around because I knew I'd regret it if I didn't.


    Sorry there are so many pics. DH took so many good ones and it's hard to choose just a few from 450 pics to sum up our trip.

    I'll join in here... I'm on my BCP and just finished my antibiotics. I will start Lupron on Saturday so we still have a bit of a wait until we get out the "big guns"

    Meg- Beautiful pics! Looks like you guys had a great time. We've never done anything but a beach type vacation but hearing about your trip definitely makes me want to try something new. So cool that you were able to try several new things too!

    Summer is officially at an end after this week. I'm going to school tomorrow to move into my office and start to meet some of the teachers and I also had meetings all last week so I guess it is already over. I took a new position in the district this year as a Literacy Coach so I will be out of the classroom. I'm a little anxious about not working directly with students and only working with teachers, but I think it will be a great learning experience. I told DH I was doing absolutely nothing this week to savor my last week before work starts but so far I can't stop working online and committing to doing a few things around the school. He keeps telling me to stop and relax but I can't help it! I still treated myself to a little shopping today, though, so that should make him happy

    Welcome Meg! It's sad that summer is ending but it will be nice for school to start to get back on some type of a routine. Our schools start next Wed. Hopefully your job change will be a good move. I know I could never be a teacher so high five to you for being one. It's hard to relax and do nothing when you know there are things that need to be done. Good luck with your cycle. I'm looking forward to following your journey.

    I've never done a beach type vacation. We keep saying we need to do one of those but never had. We are doing our Disney Cruise in the spring so that can count. DH and I both have a hard time relaxing and sitting still so I think we do better on vacations where there is lots to do. On this trip we were in bed by 9pm because we were so exhausted from the day. We usually got up early though. Probably another reason we've never done a beach vacation is because we have a lake house so we can sit outside anytime we are there.
