Hi all, sorry I kind of disappeared this past week. We had a family vacation scheduled and then my DH was told he had to go on a last minute business trip and I had to get everything ready and got called in for extra work hours...it was crazy. Our vacation was pretty much "off the grid" and it gave us all a chance to spend quality time together. But I am back now and trying to get all caught up (sorry if I miss anyone!) All of you really touched me with your thoughts on IF, it brought me to tears and sums up so many of my emotions.
Purple, I am so sorry for your loss. I really hope your vacation goes well and you and DH can agree on the path for your family.
Blue, thanks for checking in on me. I am so sorry I left you guys hanging. How long till you leave for your cycle?
Tenzi, WOW! Congratulations! How exciting! Your beta levels sound great, keep us posted.
Renavoo, great job with your lining!! I am so so so excited for you this week! Your transfer is Friday right?!
rcr, how are you doing? Refresh me on your schedule (IUI, IVF)
Aura, I am so sorry. A BFN is devestating and so hard emotionally. I truly hope you have found some peace, and that you can speak with your RE about what to do next.
Deborah, welcome! sounds like you are well on your way!
Treehugger, I was on this thread back in 2008/2009 with my first IVF and honestly, I think it just keeps getting better and better. Please stick around, and participate when you are ready.
Graduates, we all love you so much! Thank you so much for taking the time to check in on us and cheer us on...it means so much!
AFM. So in the rush of packing I forgot to pack my drug instructions. We had done one Delestrogen shot before we left, and it went fine, but then when we went to do it on vacation I didn't remember how much to take (if it was the same or more). Well, I decided to do the same because I figured there was always time for more, but if I sped it up to quickly maybe it would mess things up. I was wrong. I am going to call my RE tomorrow, but I hope it didn't mess anything up too badly. My transfer is still 18 days away so I really think there is still time (of course I am NOT a doctor :) ). Oh and one night we were out late and I took my Lupron about 5 hours later than normal...do you think that will be a big deal? I am kind of scared to call my clinic and tell them all the stuff I did wrong. I almost forgot, I packed one extra IM needle in case of an emergency...I was only going to need one, so I took 2. Well, when DH went to do the shot he drew back blood. We were so scared something would happen with the second and last needle and we wouldn't be able to do the shot. But the second time there wasn't an issue. We didn't know what to do with the Delestrogen in the syringe with the blood so we tossed it, but now I am thinking it was probably fine if I just used a different needle tip :(
