Yogini- This is so exciting. How does it feel to know you've got fertilized embies waiting for you?
I can't wait to get to this point! Just to know we can fertilize and grow an embie will be a huge accomplishment.
We had an unexpected pregnancy using condoms almost 4 years ago, and then we lost it. And now we have been TTC for 1.5 years - including 3 failed IUI's. It doesn't make sense why you can get pregnant using birth control and then you can't when you are trying and doing fertility treatments. So, it will be exciting to know we can make the magic happen again, and then to hope it will stick.
jazzact - I am using the 600 IU vials, but the same issue still comes up every third dose since I'm on 375 per day plus 75 menopur. The 600 IU vial seems to have 50-75 IU's extra in it. My nurse warned me about how to manage that. Basically - you dial up your full dose even though you know there''s not enough in the remaining vial. You inject. the pen will stop when it's out and the number left in the window is the amount you have left to inject. So put a new cartridge in and dial up the number that remained after your partial dose.
Good luck and positive thoughts everyone! Early good wishes on the return of your embryos to your womb, Yogini!

I called her back and talked to her and asked her how many she thought would make it to monday, which will be 5 days after the transfer. She said probably atleast half. So I'm hoping they get atleast 2 really strong little embryos/blastocysts to put in me on monday.
were really excited....i hope all of you are doing well and are getting good news too!
