Kali, i'm so sorry about AF showing and about how you're feeling. I totally understand the frustration, both from the standpoint of all those BFNs but also from the cost standpoint. I am still amazed at how much my DH and I spent on IVF last year. And as i said in my previous post, I'm STILL annoyed that it isn't covered for everyone on every insurance.
Rcr, SO EXCITED about today! Let us know how it goes. I hope you have lots of follies waiting to be retrieved (when you're READY to retrieve them!) I can' wait until Sat. :oD By the way, there was a few published studies that showed NO benefit to bed rest. I did it because my doctor asked me to but honestly, I don't think it made a difference. I did a modified bed rest (sat on a bed in the hotel room) the day of the ET and then on the day after, I had to be in a car for 4 hours and after that, I just behaved normally. The day after, i was running around. And, I hate to say it, climbing stairs and rushing from place to place, even though I was told to take it easy. It was just difficult for me because i'm not used to slowing down!
Saphron, ooooh it sounds like twins to me. :o) My beta was around 1800 on 12dp5dt. 2 days later, it was 4700 or somewhere thereabouts. Let us know your numbers today! I'm so excited for your first US.
Blue, ooooh i have the same issue. I had to get a spinal tap when i was younger and they tried to prepare me with valium. 4 pills later, they gave up because it wasn't having an effect. I don't seem to react to the non benzodiazepines either so ambien and its cousins don't seem to work on me either. I think I'd probably be the same way with morphine. That's probably why I don't even try to take those meds when I have a procedure done. I think they gave me percocet or something to take after the retrieval and i just decided that it wouldn't help so I never took it.
Hope, hope AF came!
