Quick vent: The most evil thing my hormones/body does to me is give me symptoms out the wahzoo but a BFN! Bah! Some days I would like and out of body experience to get a break from mine.

Oh Chrissy I'm so sorry! (and I didn't realize that we were both around testing time) I'm getting over a cold so I have pretty much chalked up anything symptom-like to I'm sick no wonder I feel like crap...

toothfairy! 11 follies! I bet you will have even more when it's time for retrieval! I imagine you must be starting to feel uncomfortable by now with that much activity going on with your ovaries... 

 

chrissy - you seriously make me laugh... i don't have the prettiest feet myself but nothing will stop me from getting them massaged! best treat ever for a reasonable price ;-) i'm sorry about the bfn... you are coming due for another bfp and i'm ready and waiting to celebrate it with you!

 

sila - good luck on new year's eve testing! 

 

gtree - 20 weeks?! it's going by so quickly! man, i want to be in your shoes (and bebe's!)

 

skj - are you still surrounded by family? did you get another bd in for good measure?

 

bebe, sherry, jpack, shelly - i think we are still waiting for your 15! can't wait to read it!

 

i've loved reading everyone's 15 (or 17 - again, with the overachieving, sila. ha!) we have a wide range and i love that... can't help but to notice that we all seem to be introverted/borderline introverted... that's why i love the internet. we probably wouldn't have taken the initiative to get to know each other IRL lol

Ok, I'm perplexed- 15? I'm getting the feeling I'm missing something... (Insert dopey emoticon of confusion here- but I'm on my phone)

bebe set up a google groups so we can talk in a more private setting in addition to the ttc talk we do here... have you checked your private messages on mdc? and was this the emoticon you were looking for? headscratch.gif :)

Chrissy- Ugh! Sorry to hear that! I hate phantom symptoms!

 

Sila- Good Luck tomorrow! I want you to be our next BFP (and a sticky one at that).

 

SKJ- How goes the BDing, is your testing tomorrow or not until Wednesday. I know you said you had to wait until after the Holiday but didn't know if they are open Monday.

 

jpack- I don't know how to send the invite but I know mine went to my Spam folder. If you send you email address to Bebe she should be able to send you an invite.

 

indie- We really are all quite similar aren't we. I feel like I left so much stuff out after reading all the interesting things people wrote about themselves. Everyone is beautiful and makes lovely couple with their respective husbands. 

 

AFM- The moment we have all been waiting for. I trigger at 10pm tonight. I arrive for retrieval at 9 am on Tuesday. My biggest follicle was almost 19 and today I had 14 follicles over 10. Only 1 more shot in my future, FINALLY! My trigger is Novarel instead of the Ovedril that I am used to. My doctor said it more consistently matures the eggs than ovedril. Unfortunately it leaves bruising and a red welt, so that is something to look forward to. Oh, and I have to mix it myself. 

I had an amazing reflexology massage today. Ah-mazing. I couldn't be more ready than if I had tomorrow off (which I don't) but at least I have Tuesday and Wednesday off.

Praying for beautiful eggs and a 3 day transfer (I know 5 day is better but I really want 2 embryos).

Oh my gosh, TF that's so great! So exciting! rough about mixing it yourself and awful about the welt - I hope it all went OK, so cool, though about 14! Wow! I'm so excited for you! SOOOO great! I'm sorry for being slow (again) but are you doing 3 day and if so what does that have to do with 2 embryos? So sorry, if you don't want to explain it to me, no problem!

 

Thanks everyone - I got it figured out about the google group and thank you bebe!

 

Indie yup - that was exactly the emoticon I was going for! I need it again for my q for TF above...

 

CHrissy I'm so sorry about the dumb BFN.

 

Sila thinking of you, fxed and sorry about the cold. I feel like we're just in a constant state of getting sick/getting better/getting sick. bleh.

No bruise, no welt! I must be avrockstar with injections. I really think it is because I do them myself. Feeling HCG-ey today. A little queasy, sore boobs.

sila - so.... didja test???

 

jpack - glad you found us on google groups. wow, what an interesting 15 things! i look forward to learning more!

 

afm - 6dpo. must be getting a secondary estrogen surge 'cause i've had quite a bit of ewcm today. wishing it was somehow related to implantation but i know better :) not feeling symptomatic at all... thought i would since this is the first time on progesterone.

 

hope everyone has a lovely, lovely new year's eve!

Only  here would someone describe a symptom as HCG-ey and better yet, the readers know how that feels.  TF - I am beyond excited for you.  Tomorrow this time, you will have eggs that are   a-fertilizing!  INSANITY.  

 

Sila - did you test ? 

 

Chrissy - how many dpo are you?  

 

Indie - Hi! I hate the 2ww.  So boring. :)

Thanks, Indie! We're off to the Idle No More Protest in Boston, I guess it fits with my 15! I hate those symptoms that make such logical sense with a pregnancy but also can mean totally nothing.

Tf, time must be moving so slowly for you right now, I'm so psyched for you!

afm way noticeable o pain/cramps las night- like exactly 36h post trigger. Funny when things fit! Gonna be a long 2ww for me but super excited for everyone's news here!

Big fat negative. I might only be 10dpo, but I doubt the result will change.

Sila- Oh, c'mon. I hope it changes, that's just crummy.

Jpack- after working half the day, cooking, napping & a party tonight, time is flying by! So many good signs. We could be due 2 days apart!! So at day 3 they will put back 2 embryos, day5 only one. Has to do with size & success rate. I just feel like if offered twins I'd take it, risks & all. I'd be thrilled with a singleton too but day 3 also gives me 3 days to rest instead of just a half day.

Indie- EWCM you say???? Doesn't happen normally you say?? Hmm... In like 100 cycles on progesterone I never had EWCM except once the day before AF. Jus' sayin.

Greece- well when you put it that way!! So exciting. The hcg feeling went away, now just tired. Sparkling juice tonight for all!

AFM- heading to a friends for New Years then only one more sleep til my eggs are out!! Prayers for a successful smooth surgery, good strong healthy fertilizing eggs are appreciated!

Indie - Man I hate that secondary EW. I get it too.

 

jpack - Sounds like perfect O!

 

Tfairy - !!!! SO EXCITED for your retrieval! Tonight can't come soon enough! What a great way to start a new year. Praying for you! Man I hate the HCGness. I always felt like I got rean over by a truck that day. I amazed you are able to go to a party!

 

AFM - DH and I went out last night and had a good talk. I'm really starting to feel like we are just wasting time (don't even tell me I'm young and have time). We really have no choice but to try again naturally next cycle because I need to order my injections and I need to do it at least 2 weeks before my next period. So, I don't really plan on trying too hard next cycle. If the next one is as long as this one was we'll be starting the very end of Feb. DH is also apparently completely fine with a Christmas baby. So I guess I'm bored with it. No plans for the evening. I'll probably be asleep by 10:30. Lame.

Sila - so sorry about the bfn. Glad that you and DH talked and have a plan.

TF - can not wait!! Hope ER goes smoothly.

Jack - hope the 2ww goes super fast.

Indie - I also get that surge of ewcm. Blah. Are you going to test?

Gtree - on cd27 so either 13dpo or 10dpo.

Have a great new years tonight. Plan to mix me a drink. Just a small one, though.

I got out at 1105 & really feel pretty great. I'm slightly crampy but have a good appetite, no nausea. I got 12 eggs so I feel good about that. I'm guessing a few we're just too small. Basically I do nothing now until Thursday when I start Crinone & estrace. Hubby has been very helpful. He was less than impressed by doing his donation at the facility. I thought it was sweet, I met the embryologist & she introduced herself as ' Sue, your first babysitter'. Anyway I'm just home now watching the Rose Parade. I can't even say I'm really tired...

So, that means you all need to start posting to entertain me !

Happy New Year's ladies! I really hope this our year, sending you all baby dust.

 

I took my last Follistim shot today. It's making me so emotional, I have cried or wanted to cry almost every day - usually over nothing important. Tomorrow I go for my u/s and move forward with IUI. Our plan it to just do one try, I am hopefully, yet worried that one try will do it.

MsD- so good to hear from you! Good luck wit the IUI & hopefully your nerves calm soon.

Indie- sounds like you had a great night. Did you end up sending the balloons to the sky? When do you head to Chcago? Soon, right?

AFM- so I totally passed out for 2 hours & had the hardest time waking up! It was so weird because I physically feel fine still but the exhaustion just hit me hard. I feel awake again now. Anxious for my report tomorrow (330-530pm). I drank a serious amount of Gatorade today too.

So 5 fertilized. Now I wait til tomorrow night to hear if my transfer will be Friday or Sunday. I really wish we could know either way so I can plan for work...

I wish I had more confidence that 5 embryos would give us our baby.

i can't help but think that this is all lining up so that you are going to get your babies without having to discard embryos. constant love going out to those 5!!

TF - 5 is fantastic!!  I am with Indie, I feel like the universe is going to make sure you don't have to discard any or make hard decisions around that.  I'm so excited for your (and glad they called early).  My friend did 2 retrievals, got 12 the first time and only 2 fertilized and got 12 the second time and 1 fertilized.  She transferred 1 and is pregnant with 2 still on ice for later.

 

AFM - just got back from the obgyn, the ultrasound showed the babies facing each other (like they were each in a hammock against both sides of my belly) with their feet touching below my belly button and they were kicking the heck out of each other.  The doctor laughed and I got a small glimpse into what my life is about to be like.

Gtree- love that theyre already kicking each other! Boys will be boys!

Indie- thanks for the support, I'll update in my afm but im feeling a lot better about them now!

Sherry- I appreciate your prayers so much & am so touched that youre thinking of me and praying for my little babes in a dish!

Afm- I called my nurse for clarification on our 5 embryos and what happened to the other 7. Turns out 5 were immature, one was a shrinking egg(abnormal?? Any input from our nurse/np on wth that means before i google). So only 6 had icsi done and one didnt fertilize. Much better fertilization rate than I was thinking, whew. So tomorrow they call with my grades. I get an appt for Friday & then they will call Fri morning to tell me whether to keep the appt or that they will have me come Sunday for a 5 day instead. My mom wants me to name them because they are embyos & therefore my babies, life or death. I feel mixed about this but it does make it more real. Maybe thats what I'm afraid of, that I have 5 babies and may not get pregnant...

TF - Amazing news! I'm so happy and excited for you!!! So, how many are you putting back in? I can't recall what your plan is.

Gtree - So great to see them in action. DD was having the time of her life with her cousin this past week and I kept thinking how great it would have been if she was a twin. I can't believe you are 1/2 way there. When is your due date?

indie - so glad to hear NYE went so well. Any plans to test? :sheepish

MsD - Good luck with the IUI. I hope so hard that it works out for you.

Chrissy - Sorry about the BFN. Ugh. I want you to get your sticky baby already.

Sherry - Hi!

AFM - I'm totally confused if/when I O'ed. Normally, I get a +OPK and a nice temp shift that all matches up. On CD 14, I got a smiley OPK and the wondfo was dark, but not as dark as it usually gets for me. The next day, the wondfo was very dark, but the smiley was gone. So confusing. My cervix felt very soft on CD 16, and by yesterday (CD 17) it was firmer by the afternoon. Today it's low and firm and my CM is no longer EW. So, I"m fairly certain I O'ed. I had O pain on CD 15, so I think that I likely O'ed on CD 16 based on all the signs together. But, my temp has been stubborn. I've been waking up at different times so I've been using a bbt adjuster. It has been totally in line with my normal temps, so I think it's working pretty well on those days that I wake up at a different time. Yesterday, however, I woke up later than usual and my temp was just slightly elevated. Here are the two charts of the unadjusted temp for yesterday and the adjusted temp. Today's temp was the same as yesterdays, but today I took it at 6am and yesterday was at 730am. My normal time is 645. The only reason I really care about any of this is that I want to start the crinone, but I want to make sure I have O'ed. I usually wait for 3 high temps to start the crinone. Any thoughts? If I put in the same temp tomorrow as it was today, I get crosshairs with the unadjusted temp, but not with the adjusted.

Unadjusted temp:


Adjusted temp:

S (35yo) wife to T (36yo) and mamma to my princess M (5/10/10).  After 3 losses in 2012, found an AMAZING doctor and gave birth to baby sister S on 11/12/13.
