Seems like we have a good thing going here! Let's keep it up!
Has anyone seen AF???? If so could you send her here!? I am exactly one week late as of today! guess I have to call and schedule the u/s and b/w to find out when and if she plans on showing or not! This is the only thing holding us up with proceeding with the DE cycle!
Amy....hoping your issue is not too serious! Sorry you have to deal with it and cannot post about it!
Hello to everyone else and have a great Monday!

I called the nurse today and she agreed to let me just go for b/w and skip the u/s at this point. So I went this afternoon and now we just wait for results which will not be until tomorrow at some point! They did an HCG of course, which clearly will be negative. But I am anxious to see what else it will tell us. Either AF will come on her own or I will start Provera probably tomorrow!

Nurse called here. My progesterone is 15 so confirmed ovulation. Can't tell by my temps but anyhow I get to start lupron tomorow night. Here we go!

Stacey..I think you and I should make a deal..we both get pg this cycle! Yeah I know it is a long shot...but I am trying to think positive here! GL with the Lupron! I have been on it a few times and I hate it! Always makes me tired and just feel like crap!
Still no AF here but I will find out more tomorrow when we get the b/w results. Had I actually had follies and ovulated I might think I was pg. I have been having AF like cramping, back pain, and sore bb's. Also have that mind numbing fatigue..the kind where you cannot even think straight! Of course I know I am not pg though and will not even bother to POAS. The b/w will confirm the BFN tomorrow. I am chalking it all up to stress and lack of sleep!

Baby, deal. I know I'm trying to be positive. I'll be on 10 units which is more than I was that one cycle I did on 5 so we'll see. I hope I can recruit some more follies and I get lucky like Sam. At any rate look at it this way you are pg. or you will be starting a cycle one way or another with AF or provera. I'm tired today. The girls for the sleepover were good but I just didn't sleep well and the dogs had me up at 4:00 a.m. GRRRR. I hope we can all go to bed early this a.m.

Definately not pg now...but holding out a huge amount of hope at getting pg with the DE's. I told DH we have to have hope it will work out or we have nothing! We are 99.9% sure the only reason I am not getting pg is the sh!tty eggs and nothing more. RE is convinced of that also. So if we put in great embies we have a wonderful shot that it will work! So I am hoping to be happily pg in September sometime!

Sorry for the x post ---> Big smiles from me today
Stacey thanks for the pms, you rock gf. I have everything crossed for you this month.
Tia hope you get sorted out with the car, its so hard to be without one and such a mission to get them fixed! Sorry the follies aren't cooperating, I've been there too many times to count. I hope that one blossoms beautifully before your next scan. How are you coping on the stims?
Amy, you okay hon? We are here to listen if you need to vent, or if not, just know that I am always thinking of you.
Sam, great news on the scan!
Kathy, too funny on the Brangelina twins. Some people have all the luck, huh? Incredible looks, fame, talent, money to the rafters and kids galore!
Baby, how you doing today? I know you are at the start of a scary journey, and I have everything crossed for you
Will anyone be uncomfortable if I hang around here for a while? You guys have been such a support to me, and I want to give some of it back. If anyone needs to pm me about anything, I will always answer. You girls are amazing and if I can't give you the babies you deserve, I can certainly give you some love and support. Will that be okay?
My + thought today is that I am going in to a client's office for the day, DS will be at pre-school so I get to have adult conversations and drink a whole cup of tea before it gets cold No, I'm not going to tell them my news (haven't told very many people RL) its too early for that. But they may wonder why I am so cheerful. Tee hee.

Baby#2 - hope the witch starts soon so you can just get on with it. Can you tell us anything about your donor? Hair, eyes,etc?
Stacey - I never had a prob with Lupron, but I know that alot of women do. Hoping this cycle goes smooth as silk for ya.
Andrea - I don't mind if you hang around.
Thanks for asking about me. I will be fine. There are alot of things ganging up on me and I am not emotionally handling things. I spent most of last night in tears, and went and spend $7000 of virtual money on my Webkinz. How's that for unhealthy???
I think I might have messed up my BMS timing. Guess we will find out. I think I am just really afraid that I won't naturally ovulate again, and then I will be back at square one.
Also....I threw out my expired meds. They were expired, so no big deal, right? Well, they have been in my fridge since December 2006 (they were good then, just expired in May 2008). We had hit our out of pocket max for the year, so I was able to get enough meds for 3 cycles for nothing. I planned on cycling in 2007, after my ovarian drilling.
So, had the surgery....had to rest cycle for a bit. Became pregnant in May 2007.....and then lost my girls. But I still had these meds, just in case. Well, now they are gone, and I cried throwing them out. Stupid......
There is more to everything that I can't go into. But I am getting closer to my 1 yr anniversary of the loss of my girls, and I am not handling it well.VERY proud mommy to ALL my children:
The Dynamic Duo
Nicholas Aragorn - Officially seven!!
Caeden Tobiah - Officially seven!!
And my very special angels ........

Sure gf I don't mind if you stay for a while! I think most of the pg. girls stay until they get their h/b and move on.
Amy, I'm sorry you are having a hard time now. I can only imagine how you must feeling with the upcoming loss. It's all to be expected so don't be hard on yourself. I mean GEEZ you went through hell and then again with another loss. Re: the meds. You had to toss if they were expired. I've had to do that a few times and it stinks but it is what it is. I'm not sure why you think you messed up the timing. I thought for sure when the nurse called she would say my progesterone is low. My temps are really not great and I know I had a +opk but from my chart it hasn't even picked up O yet. The level was 15 which on a natural cycle and to me that is great so I obviously O'd! As far as not Oing naturally there are natural things you can do like vitex and other herbal stuff that can help you out if the $ for the meds is a problem. I know many girls that the vitex has helped regulate their cycles and also helped them get pg. Hang in there. I know it isn't easy. HUGS

Amy..Hugs! So sorry about the anniversary issue. Not really sure what to say and don't want to say something stupid. But we are all here for you and will support you if you need it.
As far as the donor...she is blonde and blue eyed, 26 years old, 5'5, and 125 lbs. She is in perfect healthy and is very athletic and keeps herself in good shape. This is her second time donating so we know she knows what to expect and will hopefull not back out! She is a pretty girl and produced a lot of eggs last time and made great quality embryos.
We are very hopeful and trying not to think of the what if's in all of this, at least for now!
Now if AF would just arrive we could move forward!
