: yay Jenn!!!:

...and I'm sooooo happy to say that insensitive nurse was WRONG! We are NOT going to cancel this cycle because my labs & u/s today were great!! My endometrium grew from a 2 to a 7 and my estradiol rose from 64 to 510. This is day 7 and I'm so excited that I can't remember exactly how many follies they counted -- but it was enough.

talk about a roller coaster

(hi celeste thanks!)

Jenn: Sending you severely sticky vibes. Last time, when I was at your point, I just considered myself pregant because they're IN THERE Congrats on making it through! Do you have a full 14 days until your beta?

Leslie: WOW! This whole this is hard enough without that kind-of rollercoaster. Congratulations! It sounds like you are coming along REALLY well.

Just back from my u/s and b/w. I don't have my b/w results back yet, but the follicles are now mostly closer to 2 cm.

Instead of Monday, they want to see me again tomorrow, so I must be getting close!

that's wonderful news, Megan!! I'll be thinking about you!

Alisa, how's the Lupron going? Any side effects? I hope all is well.

thanks again for all of the encouragement and support--it has helped in a BIG way. I think I'm officially entering the "parade float" stage...

Well, the nurse called this afternoon and said, "I just looked at your bloodwork and ultrasound and we need to trigger you tonight!" I squealed out, "Okay!!!" and she laughed.

So, I did my trigger shot at 8:45 tonight, almost 2 hours ago. Tomorrow I go in for bloodwork and my retrieval will be at 7:45 Monday morning. Yahoooooo!

way to go, Megan!!
How fabulous is it to be done with stims?!! Can't wait to see your post on Monday!

Hurrah, Megan! I've been offline most of the weekend so I'm a little slow on the uptake. Can't wait to hear about your retrieval tomorrow. I'm so excited for you

Leslie: Thanks for asking about me. I'm doing great on Lupron. I feel 200% better than I was on BCP. I actually don't hate everyone and everything like I thought I did . Every once in a while I have some pressure in my head, maybe a little dizziness but that's it.

I am wondering if my Lupron period will ever end. I was all set to be on at 4.5 like my usual clockwork self but here I am at day 7 and still having some bleed. What's up with that?

According to my paperwork, I'm supposed to cut down on the Lupron to 10 units on day 11. Did anyone else do that? I wish that I would get a call when anything needs to begin or change. I'm going to call in the morning but I know I won't hear from them until after the time when I'm supposed to take the Lupron....

Anyway, hope everyone had a great weekend. I'll be thinking about you, Megan

I have a question for those who have done this before. I conceived Julia thru IVF but I forget how I felt. I had my transfer on Friday and I am not getting my hopes up but I am super tired, and my stomach feels bloated, gassy, and tight down low. I kind of expected this after the transfer, but maybe I am just feeling it more because I am chasing after my 18 month old! Does anybody remember how they felt during the 2 week wait? I am trying not to obsess!

Alisa~I hear you on the period thing. I started spotting two weeks into the BCP and didn't stop til I started stim. I can't imagine there was anything left! My Lupron protocol was a little different: 1 week with BCP at 10 units (.1cc), 1 week on its own at same dosage, and then dropped to 5 units when started stim. Halfway through stim my doc dropped it all the way down to 2.5 units, which is where I'm at now.

Jenn~I was wondering what post-transfer feels like. I have no words of wisdom, but I am thinking of you and sending lots of

This morning's u/s showed a 2cm follie plus 7 - 8 follies in each ovary! I can actually feel my ovaries in my belly; they must have stretch marks by now. Waiting to hear if we HCG tonight...

Jenn~ My 2ww was pretty uneventful. I didn't feel much of anything... I didn't even feel pregnant until about week 8. I actually said to myself "Self, I wish I would have morning sickenss just so I KNOW I'm pregnant". Um, I learned to be careful for what I wish for! The only signs I had during my 2ww was some spotting (implantation bleeding) right before my beta test. Best wishes to you and I'm keeping my : for you!
