Silver, I'm so sorry that you're not feeling well. I'm happy that you got your surgery done and hopefully, recovery is fast but I wish that I could give you a hug in real life because I know that sometimes, when you're feeling lousy, you just need a hug. Just know that we are all thinking of you and wishing you a speedy recovery. Good luck getting the funding and being counted as having been on the list earlier!! I hope that it works out and you get a nice person overhearing your case. haha i know if i was a case manager, you'd be getting the first spot available on my list!!
Monetessortof, yah for no symptoms so far. I was on 300IU of gonal f plus menopur and had very little symptoms so I'm hopeful for you, especially during the holiday season. they also had to increase my dose after my first check in and it still didn't really impact me so I hope the same is for you, if you have to increase the dose :o) It is so exciting that you've started. How are you feeling about it? Are you nervous? Excited? Around when are they predicting your retrieval and transfer?
Praying, thanks for the advice!! i forgot to ask about the flu vaccine the last time i was in the office. Must remember to ask the next time! But anyway, ugh to your AF not coming yet! it's so annoying. haha AF should come when we need it to so we don't have to go through the inconvenient waiting...it's inconvenient enough! Are you having signs yet of it's impending visit? I prefer the small family gatherings actually so your gathering sounds perfect :o) We will be seeing DH's family for Thanksgiving and my family on Friday so it should be fun!
Blue, oh my gosh...i just want to hug Abby!! i could never resist that face!! That nose just makes me swoon. I don't really know why but puppy noses just makes me happy. do you know of that art where the photographer gets so close to the animals and he has the nose perspective so the noses are large and it looks like they are sniffing you? Would you believe I have a MONOPOLY that features that type of art? haha
How did Abby heal? Is she all better now? She is just such a sweet joy!
As for AF, you know after my stim cycle, i barely had any bleeding too. I actually called my nurse many times in a panic because I just didn't know how I could have built up a thick lining and then had like 2 moderate days and 3 spotting days as my period. they said that it was normal so i didn't worry. I am hopeful that this means that your FET will bring you a BFP!!
Aura, ugh! I'm sorry you've gotten so sick. :o( it is a bad season and yeah, your lower immune system will probably do that to you. I'm so hopeful for this month because you really shouldn't have to suffer this needlessly. come on BFP! As for nyquil, I'm with the girls...I wouldn't do it. To be honest, I don't think it would harm you...too many women wouldn't be aware of their pregnancy at this point and would probably have taken nyquil and been fine. However, after all we went through, even a little increase in the probability of harm is too high. Although, that probably doesn't help you right now. I'm just hoping for your quick recovery!!
Vegan, AAAAAAAH Nice!! It sounds like a wonderful way to spend a weekend and prepare for a dry spell. :o) I used to drink a glass or 2 of wine with dinner and whenever a cycle failed, I always looked forward to drinking some wine (or sometimes, something harder) haha. I'm glad that you had a great weekend (although not glad that you have a hangover)...haha I remember that since TTCing and limiting my alcohol, my tolerance became really quite low and my propensity for hangovers much higher. Ugh! Ah, to be young again. ;o)
Hope everyone else is doing well!! Happy Monday of a short week (YAH!) and i hope that there is a lot of holiday cheer where you all are. I'll be hoping really hard that these next few months bring a lot of happy news to this thread!!
