Laggie - Yes it is weird that some RE require the bedrest an others don't. Who knows. I'm one that would rather be safe than sorry so I will follow the rules even though i hate laying on the couch for two days. Drives me nutty and then i get all sore and stiff too. Sorry to hear about the lupron incident. What kind of Lupron are you on? Multi dose or the other?
Praying - wow, that is a long time to be on bedrest!!! I don't know how you would be able to do that especially with DS unless you had some awesome family or DH that would stay home and help you out. You might be able to take a medical leave from work that is my only thought. Good luck with it all. Keep us posted. You must have missed my above posts on the other page but we transferred 2 embies this morning and will freeze the other 5. All of them were a 2 or 2+ grade (and 1 is the best) so that is really good for me especially compared to what we have gone through in the past 3 times.
Aura - hoping that AF shows up for you here soon. Glad you survived the snow storm. Must have kinda been a little bit fun in a way... kinda like camping up colder.
Silver - thanks girl. How are you doing and when is your surgery date? Thinking of you!!
Kewpie - Thanks my friend!!! 27 wks that is awesome!!!! Yeah. I'm going to for sure come and stalk you on the graduate IVF thread soon... maybe I can join you soon over there.. that would be even better.
Carlyle- so good to see your name show up. You are one of my favorite "sister of a sister" LOL. You and Tear are the best!! Hope you are doing well with your two little ones. I'm sure they are not so little anymore though!!! Thanks for popping in!!!
Bungalowmama - Good to see your name again and glad things are going well for you!! Lots of IVF multiples these last couple of months for sure!!! I'd opt out of the pap if you could and just have it done later if it isn't that big of a deal, but it is totally up to you. I know you want to avoid as much medical drama as possible, but it is your choice. I know you only pop on now and then but you might want to ask on the new graduate thread that Keria set up for the IVF graduates in case some of them don't happen to read your post on here (which i doubt b/c we are all hoping that the graduates stick around too. Here it is in case you didn't see it.. http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1334294/ivf-graduates-thread#post_16720866
Keria - hope you are well. I'll be over to the other thread here in a bit but wanted to say that I really wish i was laying on that beach in your profile picture!! Looks so peaceful!!!!
Renavoo- I asked about when they will freeze the other three and they said they will freeze them today b/c it is better to freeze them earlier b/c it is better for the embryos at that early stage or so that is what they said to me. I'm sure there is a whole school of thought on this issues as well just like the bedrest and at what day you should do your ET after your ER. Crazy how such a science could have such different views!!!!! Hope you are feeling well too and those symptoms keep coming just as long as they are manageable.
Belly - i hope that your busy week keeps you distracted some from this tww. Don't worry I'm right there with you. I have Abby's girlie surgery next monday and then will pick her up on Tues and have to care for her so that will be a good distraction for me in this tww. Poor little girlie!!! Stay away from Dr Google..... he will only cause you stress in this tww. I think I might try to do some fertility yoga or some positive thinking each day. I did that with our first IVF and got a positive so I think i'll try to keep picturing those embies sticking on really tight to that lining and digging in there deep for a good 9 months. Deep breaths my friend.
rcr - I re-read your questions.... I laid at the RE's office with my legs up on a bolster for an hour and then peed really gently and then got in the car and reclined the seat as far back as it would go (would have gotten in the back seat but with all the stuff we had to pack there was no room) and put my feet up on the dash. Oh and i had two pillows under my butt as well. By the time i got home my butt and back felt numb and so tired of being in the car. I'm glad to be out of the car and on the couch now. DH stopped and got us lunch to eat on the road so i ate that reclined as well which was interesting but managed. Bed rest just today and tomorrow i can shower and eat a meal at the table but the rest of the day spent on the couch laying down probably watching HGTV and then wed i'll be up and about but kinda not doing too much and may try to rest sometime through out the day. We will see.
Tenzi - hope you are doing well. Thanks for your positive wishes. We did make it to see the band and it was great. I wouldn't have been able to stand the whole time but we had the table which help. The group is called Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers. They put on a great show and are so entertaining. We are really good friends with the one guitar player and have gotten to know all the other guys in the band pretty well and they are all very genuine and just awesome people in general.
Julie - good to see your name pop up as well. How are you doing???
Tear - yep, we went to the concert.. see what i wrote to tenzi above and it will explain more. to you my friend.
Deborah - good luck with your trigger. I still have my bruise on my butt from mine.
Okay, i think i may have hit almost everyone. I kept going back several pages to try and catch up on everything and everyone that had posted in the last 2 pages so if i missed you it is b/c you haven't posted, but Hello to all!!!!
AFM - well, as you can see above I'm pretty bored just laying on the couch w/ the laptop and the puppy dog laying on my legs. I feel like i got hit by a truck and am really sore in the ovary/uterus area which i always think is a really good thing b/c i know that those little guys are in the right place and hopefully getting comfortable. I have my pineapple in the fridge and i think tomorrow night DH and I will order Chinese food since that is kinda the superstition for getting pregnant after an IVF or at least so i have heard. A friend brought us dinner tonight and another is bringing dinner on Wed night so that is nice not to have to stress over that the next few days. Here is a pic of the 3 they wanted to put in but then we just decided on two of them.
Good grief..... just realize that as the pup is laying with me on the couch she just chewed through my power cord for my laptop! DH is going to love this!!!! What a pain!!! Luckily it is really the first thing that she has ruined, i think!!!!
