No personals today.

I am rather saddened because my E2 was 98 today. They could only find 3 follies on the left side. So I am d/cing the lupron.

Please pray that my estrogen goes up and the follies grow!

Happily Blessed....I really hope you get good news at your next check in! It can be so discouraging to hear news like that. Try to keep your spirits up and hopefully the drugs will start to do their thing.

Oh will be thinking of you. I was a slow starter too for a couple of my cycles, and it jumped up after a raise in meds... hang in there...

: I hope they can change the meds so things start going better asap. Take good care.

AFM, of course I am super analyzing every twinge and mood, wondering if I'm pregnant, stressed, reacting to the meds or just have gas. Fun fun 2ww.

And hey grads, thanks so much for hanging around, I miss you guys (but I'm glad you've graduated!!)

I will not POAS, I will not POAS, I will not POAS. I know it will just make me more crazy.

How's the stimming going?

Don't do it! I can only imagine how crazy this is making you.

Stimming....day 4 u/s showed 9 very small follicles so they've upped my meds significantly. I'm going to have to order more.: Trying not to freak out about only having 9.

DO NOT POAS! It could give you a false negative and get you upset over nothing! I didn't POAS with my last cycle, either. Even after they called me with my BFP I did POAS and it was still almost non-existent! You can do it, CRM...try to keep yourself occupied with other things. When is your beta?

Really crazy! Sorry you are having to spend more $$$. At least though, there is something they can do (eg. they anticipate upping your meds will sort out your follies). Try not to worry (and I'll work on it, too!). Take care!

Wow, thanks for telling me this, now I really won't do it. Beta is next Wed, they'll call on Thurs. How are you feeling these days?

Oh no. I'm not sure what to say. Can we hope that those 4 grow to be really great quality follicles? I'm so sorry this cycle isn't working as you had hoped. Just so sorry.

I'm sooo sorry. I've been there. My 2nd ivf cycle was going to be cancelled due to understimming. However, I was able to convert it into an iui cycle instead. Is that an option for you if more follies don't develop?

CRM - Stay strong and don't POAS. I gave into the pee stick one cycle, got a bfn the day before beta. Beta was positive. What a heck of an emotional journey that was, definately not worth it. This cycle I haven't used a pee stick yet.

I know, I know. It's just that part of the 2ww that seems sooooooo loooooong. I see you have found out that you're having b/g twins? So exciting!!! My dh has already been asking if the beta is positive if they'll be able to tell by the number if it's twins (no, they can't, right?)

More 's to you, Happily Blessed. I hope you are taking it easy.

Hang in there! When do you go in for your beta again?


So as of this morning I have 10 follicles with the largest being 13. My estrogen is 194. Not sure if that is good or bad or neutral. It does sound like they might up my meds again. I JUST ordered more this morning. My drug budget is going to be completely blown. :

I go for the blood test on Wed, but they won't call until Thurs afternoon. I have lots of stuff planned for us to do, but I am getting all anxious and cranky with my dd. Imagining the worst... don't know how I would cope with bad news at this point.

Sorry to hear you have to order more drugs, not only the $$$ but the unpredictability of it all. How many days have you been stimming? It sounds like you are doing at least okay, it varies so much from person to person. Hope you are chillin'.

CRM - they make you wait over 24 hours? Oh my. That's just not right.: I think staying busy is the only thing to do.

Yesterday was day 7 for me. And of course they just upped my meds again so I'm sure I'll be ordering more. I'm also starting to feel my ovaries. Very odd feeling. Rather annoying.

Yes, very annoying to have to wait. : I've been dealing with this clinic since 2005 and they used to call same day. Then they changed it and when I insisted on getting a nurse on the phone, she said they've "always called the following afternoon". Ya, you're new here, I'm not. I have lots of plans for today, tomorrow and Thursday morning.

The swelling ovaries thing really sneaks up on you, doesn't it? This was my third IVF and it was still weird. I could only wear certain clothes and the process of sitting down and getting back up felt really awkward. Do take it easy on yourself, your body is going through a lot.

I'm watching you too, CRM. And everyone else. I'm a week away from starting our 2nd ivf cycle. Meds are in place and right now, I'm a bit more cavalier about the whole thing, having lived in that "I Surrender" place now for about 5 mths since the last shot.

Leah, it's amazing to see you are almost full term! Wow!

August 11, 2009. We have 4 follies. My E2 was 390. We will do the retrieval on Friday morning and most likely the tranfer on Monday.

I doubt if we will have accupuncture on the retrieval. No extra money.

Happily - Glad the E2 level went up. Here's to 4 beautiful follies to become the perfect embies for you. : :

CRM - Here's some hugs to get you through. My dd and I always had a horrible time on beta days. I'd be stressed, which she would probably sense and hence act out more which just made everythign worse. Keep busy.

Poet - I'll be lurking along, cheering for you. I'm glad to hear you feel in a better place.

Happily Blessed.....according to my u/s while I have a total of 9-10 follicles, only 4 are really growing and maturing so I guess we're both going into this with 4 unless something happens between now and Monday which is when they think my retrieval will be. My estrogen is right where yours is at 344.

I'm trying to stay very very positive.

Good luck to us both!

Thanks for all the well wishes!! We had to wait forever for the b/w and my dd was not patient. Then my dh texted me wondering if I had the results already and just hadn't mentioned (apparently I have not complained about this next day results thing enough). Busy day of outings today, playdate tomrrow am, then nothing I have to worry about tomorrow afternoon. :
