Well, dh spoiled my no-POAS-till-Wednesday goal. I told him I wasn't going to to it, and he told me to just go ahead and do it. BFN, of course. Anyway, temp is still up, so this makes me 11 DPO. That is the most hope I've ever had of pregnancy in almost 1.5 years of trying. It also means that, at least for this cycle, I'm not worried about a too-short luteal phase. But it drives me crazy that I can't possibly know any more until tomorrow morning! Grr... there should be some deal that you get some sort of clue every 12 hours, at least. But no. Just my temp and POAS to go by, and both of those happen in the morning. I guess AF could show, but that would be a total break in my previous patterns, as my temp has held steady the past two days. I think Saturday's temp was a fluke.
Okay, enough about me, back to you guys:
gozal - Did you POAS?? I'm waiting to know about you, cycle buddy! Sorry about the hair loss and the crazy feelings. I was waaaay emotional the first few days after O this time. Not good!
renavoo - Yay for a good transfer! Glad the thaw went well. Too bad it will be so long till you know if it worked. (Yeah, a week or two seems like forever!) But I'm pulling for you!! And yes, you should totally POAS with a trigger if this doesn't work. (But I hope it does!!) I'm glad I did with mine - now I at least know that I don't have magic, pregnancy-test-destroying urine. I really can test positive if there really is something there!
deborah - Hoping and praying things go well with your consult this week. Go blood go!
chicajones - Welcome (back)! I, too, had PCOS ruled out as a diagnosis because I didn't present with the classic physical symptoms. But I have every other symptom (polycystic ovaries, elevated male hormones, irregular periods), so at least I finally have a diagnosis. I did a Femara cycle that didn't work out, but I think that was in part due to poor timing (we were doing timed intercourse, and traveling for a funeral). The manufacturer of Femara used to have a program where you could get a prescription filled for $10, but I just hunted down the link, and it seems it doesn't work any more. :( But yes, Femara is supposed to have lower twinning rates, and also not wreck your lining, the way Clomid does to some people. Hope it works for you!
TinyMama - Welcome! I found a frustrating lack of information on progesterone supplementation when I was doing a medicated cycle. I was doing Femara with timed intercourse, and my RE wanted me to do progesterone suppositories. I questioned him about it, since my post-O progesterone levels had never been tested, and he just told me that in their experience it increased the success rate of IVF. Except I wasn't doing IVF. Or anything like it. I chose not to use the progesterone, but I also didn't get pregnant, so take that for what you will. I guess whether or not you should take it depends on how likely you would be to be upset with yourself for not taking it if you don't get pregnant. I still wonder sometimes if it would have made a difference for me, although my gut instinct is no. But I don't think you should feel bad about choosing not to take it, especially if you know your LP is normally of a sufficient length and without spotting. If you do start it, though, you can't just quit it cold turkey, though. As I understand it, you can end up miscarrying if you end it abruptly. Maybe this is not true if your body is making plenty of progesterone on its own? Not sure, so hopefully someone else can chime in. Either way, good luck to you!
