Sourire..okay,when I think of what to say I'll let you know. Maybe I'm okay just being in the "thread" smile. When is your transfer. this weekend????? How very exciting.

I had a question for you. When you were taking the estrogen pills did you have any weird symptoms?? I wish I had the patch. I won't look at the needle this time but it doesn't help when dh says"oh my, am I suppose to put the whole needle in" lol

 

Welcome Nieves

 

Sending positive baby energy your way Toothfairy2be!

Tracyamber - my transfer is on Tuesday. I'm pretty excited, this will be my first transfer ever as I did not have one in my IVF cycle due to OHSS. I can't remember specifically what symptoms I had on the estrogen pills but I know I didn't like it! I think it involved a lot of mood swings and tiredness. I'll add your name to the list on the first post and you can let me know if you want me to add more info later.

and here is your 'box' of doughnuts about 1.5 years overdue.  There wasn't a big enough box so a pile seemed just as appropriate.  I'm so happy and excited for you!

 

 

 

Sourire, good vibes to you too for an easy, successful transfer on Tuesday.

 

Ok, back to lurkdom

Thanks all! I'm so touched that everyone is so excited for us. You forget how long a road it has been when this day comes. I actually said to my husband, whoa 9 months is a really long time. We've never made it this far... where this an and end point to the 'waiting'. Thank you all again. I can't wait in 2 weeks to re-pay the excitement to Sourire who has spent wayyyy  too much time with me over the last 2 years! 

 

My beta is Wednesday!

Sourire- Good Luck tomorrow! Also, if they have you fill your bladder on site, don't drink all 3 cups! About 20 minutes after finishing the second cup I thought I would explode. I can't wait for your 2ww to get underway!

 

Tracy- Everyone is different with the supplements. I haven't had any side effects from any of my meds, including BCPs, lupron, stims, estrase or crinone. Lots of people have terrible side effects though so if you are experiencing something then it is likely from your meds! When is your cycle starting?

 

Thank you Vegan and Krunchyk! 

 

I'm not quite ready to move to graduates but will likely feel better after my betas come back. This is a whole different kind of stress :-/

Toothfairy - good luck with the beta. Did you take anymore tests today?

AFM - transfer is tomorrow but I don't know what time so I've taken the whole day off. They will call me sometime in the morning to give me the exact time. Then I go to the acupuncturist, then to the fertility clinic, then back to the acupuncturist. Good thing they are close to each other! Today I found myself crying at a random YouTube video of a flash mob haha, I'm thinking it must be the hormones. Other than that I have no side effects at all even though I'm on 5 different meds.

Sourire- I did yesterday AM & PM and today AM & PM, it wasn't until I put all 4 in a line I can see them getting darker. What a relief. You are going to do great tomorrow. The crying unexpectedly does not get any better but you will be so relieved after the transfer. Are they giving you anything beforehand? Acupuncture is just amazing and I really think it made a huge difference for me in this process. Can't wait for your update tomorrow! So since you are doing a FET you don't have a trigger shot, right? Any plan on when you might start testing or will you wait for your beta, which begs the question, when is your beta?

Ok I got the call at 9am while I was still asleep and they wanted me to come in by 10:45 lol. I negotiated a bit more time so I could go for the acupuncture then DH and I threw on some clothes and ran out of the house without breakfast! Now we are stuck in traffic :P

Sadly my best blast did not survive the defrosting. But the second one they tried is alive and well.

toothfairy - nope I didn't have to do a trigger. I just reduced my estrogen dose and started progesterone last Thursday. I am not taking any extra meds for transfer, though I'm still taking aspirin, prednisone and an antibiotic to promote implantation. I think I'll probably start testing 1 week from today just like you did, though I've heard that frozen embryos sometimes implant a bit later.

Tracyamber - I'm going back to work tomorrow. I have a pretty relaxing desk job so I figured I didn't need to take any extra time off.
