Kelly—NEVER too early to be elated! Congratulations! I’m so happy it worked!
Gelly—Oh, I’m so sorry to hear about the job and the BFN. I hope the layoff is just temporary, and that you find the perfect new job for you just as soon as you get your BFP (you know, the one with the awesome benefits and mat. leave)!
5Grand—they look nice to me, too—I especially like their springlike green background! I hope they’re settling in nicely! And if that isn’t a pregnancy symptom it at least sounds like a good way to spend the TWW—much better than my whining and worrying regimen.
CaNanny—Ugh. I’m sorry about the breathing problems. But glad to hear the spotting is over! When do you plan to start testing in earnest?
Max—I love your new icon!
Lise—are you hoping for more than 1 kid? Would it bother you to use different donors for them? I wonder about this sometimes—I think it probably doesn’t make any difference but then I have plans to stockpile our guy whenever it works. Glad he’s got more than 5 vials, though! It doesn’t seem fair to sell out of your featured donor on the 2nd day of the month!
RainbowBrite—I hope the wait is relaxing and just what you need—and that in November your guys come out swinging so you can have that surprise for the wedding!
AFM—1st insem went well today. I asked for an ultrasound first which was very reassuring—my lining is up to 8.1, lead follie clocks in at 24. I took the trigger shot last night and she said it didn’t look like I’d O’d quite yet, so probably sometime tonight.
The nurse read me the wrong info on the donor—apparently this month’s hadn’t been entered yet and she didn’t check the date. I was totally disappointed in the crappy numbers again until she got to the end and read the wrong donor number. I sent her back and the new guy is MUCH better. 24mil, 18mil motile, 69% motility. Much better than the sad 25% from last time. We’ve decided that this is our guy come hell or IVF (which is the same thing, I gather) so I’m very relieved that his numbers are good. DP had to work today so it was just a trial run as far as I’m concerned—tomorrow is the big day! The egg will be en route and the swimmers will be primed and ready to go!
