Crap, I just typed a whole message and lost it. Now I don't have time to repeat everything.
So I will just say, Sap and Blue, good luck! I will be thinking of both of you.
Aura: Don't get yourself all worked up about the Menopur. I am sure that your RE knows about your PCOS and still thought using Menopur was best for you. I agree that there has to be some level of trust. Certainly, if this cycle does not work out for you, you should discuss your concerns and what you found with your RE. These meds and cycles are so different for each one of us because our bodies are different. Don't beat yourself up... Just waiting to hear the news of you BFP!!!
Saphrons: Good luck with your HCG shot. I am sure you will do just fine. I have been very lucky that my office visits have always been when I am ready to trigger, so they always give me the shot. Wow! Saturday. So close now. Wishing you the best!
Blue: I am super exited that your time has finally come to get this going. You have many prayers coming your way!
RCR: Sorry you lost your post. That has happened to me more then once. UGGGHHH! How you doing?
Renavoo: How are things with you these days?
Silver: Thinking of you!
Keria, Kewpie and Belly:
Praying - I am ok, thanks for asking. Typical for me in the 2ww, I over-think every little twinge and pain and start convincing myself that this may have actually worked.
Aura - oh no! I am sorry.
Saph and Blue - I will be thinking of you both.
AFM - I realized last night as I was doing the progestrone that it expired last month. I went ahead and did it, but I called the RE and ordered more. Thankfully, there is a pharmacy near me that just started compounding drugs, otherwise I would have to really drive far for it. She called it in, and it cost $45. ouch. Was not expecting that!
Momtoalexis and Tear and kewpie - nice to see you!
Saphrons - Woo Hoo! How did the trigger shot go? How are you doing? I've got everything crossed!!!
Aura - I'm sorry for the BFN
rcr - man do I hate the cost of the meds. Glad you noticed it and could get more!!!
blue - Oh man, trying to sleep before the ER is just about impossible, isn't it? I hope that you got some more sleep! Good luck today, can't wait to hear how it all went!
Blue - BEST OF LUCK! You are in my thoughts!
Aura - I am so sorry to hear that your period came.
rcr - Is that the price with or without insurance? Curious because that could be your pharmacy drug cost for that tier of medication. My desogen (birth control) for this cycle was $55 a pack based on my pharmacy benefit and it could not be substituted for a generic per the doc.
AFM, my husband did the trigger shot and I thought it was painful. My bum is still sore. But it's ALL worth it. My husband also sent me this email this morning and I thought I'd share:
Baby I just need to let you know how thankful I am that you are doing this for us and that I am extremely proud of how well you have been doing. thank you times a million.
Everyone knows how difficult infertility is. I couldn't have gone through this journey without him. I'm sort of ashamed to admit this, but my husband has literally done every single one of my injections. I think that in a way, it has made him much more intimate with this whole process.
Blue, just signing on to say I'm thinking of you and your little embie!!! COME ON EMBIE!!!
Saphrons, my DH did all my injections too. Isn't it wonderful to have them with us on this journey? I couldn't have gone through this without him too. What a lovely email to receive :o) GOOD LUCK THIS WEEKEND!
Aura, Were you on progesterone? I'm so sorry :o(
Praying, how are you doing? Rcr, just thinking of you!
Ok, I have a doctor's appointment today so I have to get going. I just wanted you to know i was thinking of all you ladies, even the ones i wasn't able to call out here. Things have been crazy at work but should hopefully slow down in another week and a half so i can truly focus on what's important...that is, you ladies getting your BFPS!!!
Blue - hope all went well! Sorry you didn't get much sleep, but that just means that you will be able to sleep soundly afterward! Your baby is going to love having Abby as a best friend to snuggle with
Saph - that is the cost with insurance. Insurance paid 14.95. I don't really understand how they determine what I pay and what they pay, because an order of follistim that costs $4000 for them ends up costing me $40. And 30 progestrone pills costs me $40 and them $14.95. The whole thing is weird, although I am just thankful that they pay more for the more expensive stuff, so I don't complain (much).
Renavoo - thanks!!! Glad you get your weekend to relax w/ DH!!!!!! Hope you can just be lazy all weekend long and soak it all up!!! Glad your drs appt went well.
Belly - thanks for you kind words!!
Keria - thanks!! I hope that you are getting some sleep! My one night w/o much is nothing compared to what you are going though i'm sure.
Saphron & Renavoo - i think it is so sweet that your DH's gave you all of your shots!! I think it is nice when our DH can take a part in this process since pretty much all of it falls on our shoulders. I also think it makes them realize better how much we are going through having to make a little miracle or two. DH has been giving me my PIO shots every morning so a least I feel like he is being kinda a part so far.
Saphron - hoping your ER went well this morning. You are probably just waking up from the drugs or maybe still sleeping who knows. Can't wait to hear how many eggs they got. Fingers crossed for you. Oh and your little email from you DH was so sweet!!!! You and I will just be a little bit apart on our tww. Fill us in when you feel up to it. About your question about freezing two together. I'm not really sure but every single time we have done a fresh/FET (total of 5 now all together) we have always put 2 back in so I'm sure that they do it that way b/c it is most common to put more than one back at a time. Since we found out about our partial matching DQ alpha we have to only put one in now b/c there is a 50% chance that our embryo could be a faulty one to begin w/.
rcr - how are you feeling??? Glad you got your new progesterone. What kind are you on now??
Hope- we go to a clinic in Grand Rapids, MI. PM me if you want more info. We live just west of Cleveland, OH so it takes us like 4hrs and 30 mins to get up there or a little longer if traffic is bad. We have a family friend (DH's "aunt" aka: his mom's BFF) that lives there so we stay w/ her when we are up there so that is really nice b/c then we can take Abby and we don't have to pay for a hotel room so that saves us some money. What city is your clinic that you go to in???
Praying - how are you feeling?? Glad you don't have to be on the PIO for sure!!!! I've started using heat instead of ice and i think it is better but afterwards my butt still hurts but oh well. I'll suck it up for a little while longer.
Gale & Vegan - how are you both doing???? Fill us in!!! What's next?
Gelly - how are you doing???
Hi to everyone else....I'm sure I'm missing someone but I'm just trying to look back from post on the last two pages so if you haven't posted that is why i miss ya.
AFM - Uggh.... I hate bedrest!!!! I'm just not good at it and my back doesn't like laying around either, that is for sure. I'm trying to take it easy, but w/ Abby being so demanding and DH kinda half watching her is hard. Just have to make it through today and then I can do what i want, to a certain point. Actually, when i get up to walk to the bathroom i really don't feel good (feel like this after all of my transfers though it seems). So when i sit or lay down i do feel, so it is probably good that i have to force myself to lay low today. I'm not working again until next Thurs and Friday and i will try to limit my lifting as much as possible when i go back and then i work on Mon the 19th and the 20th is our Beta. If it is a BFP then i have to go on the 23rd for my next intralipid treatment which i scheduled and will just cancel if it is negative. Not much else going on here. Hope everyone has a good weekend and is having more fun than I am laying on this stupid couch!!!!
Ps. my new profile pic is of Abby sleeping on my pillow on the couch from last night. I think i got up to go to the bathroom and came back and she decided to help w/ the bedrest. I guess you move your head you lose your pillow in this house!!!! LOL I just got a different pillow and moved to the other couch.
Blue: I enjoyed bedrest but felt all achy too. Try moving to the couch and lounging there for a bit. :-) I'm so glad they were able to thaw just the 1. I hope it's the magic one!
Saphrons: I hope retreival went well!
AFM: I had my OB appt yesterday. Thankfully I got to see the heartbeat again and the baby was measuring 2 days ahead at 10 weeks 3 days. I go back next Friday for another OB appt. For some reason this was just to confirm I'm pregnant. Next week is my actual 1st prenatal and we'll discuss more stuff. She also said she'd repeat the u/s if I want. Then the NT scan a week and a half after that. Then I guess no more ultrasounds until around 18 weeks for the anatomy scan. It will be rough not to have the reassurance. But my OB is really nice and said that if I am ever freaked out I can call and she will let me come in (I had asked her her thoughts on getting a doppler for at home).
