I feel like this cycle is taking forever. I'm on stims day 10 today. I was really hoping to trigger tonight but my measurements this morning make me think that I'm prob going to wait one more day. I know this is not the end of the world but it feels like it.
I am so tired of the menapur shots. The other don't bother me too much but the menapur just has me totally overwhelmed.
You are so close now Mandie! So exciting! Hang in there! You'll be in the 2ww before you know it!!
I'm sure it feels like things are going so slow. I'm glad your RE is keeping you on stims longer if needed. The RE I went to for my first two cycles didn't stim me long enough (in my opinion) and triggered me too soon so I only had a few eggs. He would never go off the books and think someone may need to stim longer than others. The RE I went to for my last cycle changed my stim doses around and kept me on them longer to let the slackers catch up and I had much better results.

I'm sorry. I always hated having to mix the vials together when I was taking it. This is such a hard process and you feel like you have no control over any of it. You can do this! You are almost there. Plus, this way we can be 'trigger twins'

Just got my call. We are not doing the trigger tonight. The Nurse said I might trigger tomorrow or Thursday. I really really hope its tomorrow.
I'm sorry. I know it's no consolation but that's an extra day for things to grow and better you chances.
Hang in there...it will be here before you know it!!
3 failed IUI's and 3 failed IVF's with OE, 2 failed frozen DE cycle... we are currently doing our "Hail Mary" fresh DE cycle!!
Sorry you have to wait longer for the trigger but I hope this means you will more eggs to retrieve in the end.
Oh man, I'm sorry it's extended but like Pp have said, it's only to get more mature eggs in the end. I was on the Gonal F pen so I honestly can't imagine mixing meds. But I did stim for 12 days so I know how it feels to be ready for that trigger. KUP!
Hang in there! Everything will come to a screeching halt soon when you enter the 2ww and time will seem to stop. Hope you get lots of eggs!
