Great!!!  I've added you!!  Welcome again!!  It is nice for me to have all these FET people here so I can learn the ropes.  I was hoping to have my FET in Feb, but I'm guessing it may end up being in March.  Oh well!!!  Good luck to you and keep us posted!!!

Hi all!

 

Good news--AF is on her way! I started spotting last night and today a bit more--like a light brown flow. Hopefully, tomorrow will be full flow and CD 1. That means I'll start stims on Tuesday, Wednesday at the latest!

Song - Yeah for brown spotting!!!!! joy.gif Crazy that we get excited about AF being on her way...only on this thread and at certain times, I guess.  I keep feeling like AF is coming too with cramps and a little breakout, but from what they say she probably shouldn't be around for me until mid Feb, but I just keep hoping they are wrong.  My body seems to always do things it's own way!!!!!  Keep us posted on when you start your stims.  What are you going to be taking??

Hee hee...I know! I'm having a good ol' fashioned PMS (maybe cause I've been off meds for a few months now, my cycle has gone back to natural?). I've got sore breasts, bad skin, and major weepiness. But I can't wait for AF cause then I get to start BCP and get this show on the road! Then I can have even crazier symptoms. But hopefully, it will all be worth it.

 

P.S. I always read "AF" as 'Annoying Friend".

And I forgot to say, YAY for starting stims this week, songtothemoon!

Welcome Primi

Blue - I finish BCP tomorrow.

Somg Yay!! joy.gif I am not too far behind you. I start stims on Sunday, I think.

AFM - I have a telephone meeting with the nurse to talk about my schedule in 15 minutes, but I forgot the darn schedule at home. I hope that is not a problem. I have been looking forward to this appointment for two weeks, I don't know how I could forget. duh.gif

AF is here and I started BCP today.

post #189 of 578
keria yay! It is nice to be moving forward isn't it.

My telephone conversation with the nurse was ok, It was no big deal that I did not have the calendar. I start stims on Sunday (gonelf and menipur - I am probably totally spelling and saying them wrong). I stop BCP tomorrow, and I have an appointment with the RE this Friday.

Kewpie just thinking about you. Hope you are doing ok.

Lol I don't know I'm so scared don't know why though.

 

Glad your appointment went well, it will be over before you know it, even though IVF was this BIG thing that I was doing, the day to day of everything was pretty easy for me even though I'm scared of needles and doctors and blood, I'm such a chicken lol, the hardest part was the tww but it will all be worth it.

Just came to give a quick update. After a cluster of a day the Dr's office called me to give me my test results. Mind you I went in at 9:30 this morning and had to wait until 4:03 for them to call me back. the result was 399, so I am preggo. I am 10dp5dt. With my first IVF my beta 9dp5dt was 116, so this is a vast improvment.

CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!    broc1.gifcarrot.gifbanana.gif  I was just "stalking" you to find out if you were still around and I was going to post to see how it all went!!!  How many embies did you transfer again and it has been forever since I've read back... i forget if it was a Fresh or Frozen?  Those numbers are AWESOMEjoy.gif!!!!!! Keep us posted!  When is your next beta???

Kewpie - How are you doing?  What's going on in your world?  Just checking in on you.

 

Missme - LOL.... "Annoying Friend"  I like that!!!!

 

rcr - Glad to hear your telephone meeting went well and Yeah for finishing BCP!!  Have you been on Gonal F before?

 

Keria - Yeah for AF and starting BCPs.

 

Song - AF??????

 

 

AFM - Grrrrrrr!!!  Had another hcg draw this morning and it went from 71 (last mon) to 14.5 now and I have to go back again next Monday!  This is starting to get old! We are on the FET schedule with our RE for March and I'm starting to feel like I'm having to plan my month and it's like a month and a half away - I really hate this part of infertility and ART.  Started spotting again this morning too after several days of no spotting.  I'm really excited for all of you starting stims and this whole process.  I really found the whole process kinda neat to be able to see the progress and i agree that the tww was probably the worst like Keria said.  I didn't have any weird side effects, so it was just more meds and more U/S's/bloodwork compared to all the IUI's we have done.

We transfered 2 day 5 blasts that had been frozen since 12/08. I go for my next beta on Wednesday. I can hardly wait!!

blueyezz - frustrating. but 71 down to 14.5 seems like a big drop, so hopefully you WILL be down to 0 by next week. My fingers are crossed for you. Go away HCG!
