So, tomorrow night I will start birth control and go with my next cycle. So hopefully Late July? I don't have a calandar in front of me.

I keep checking in for good news!

Jenn
Good luck to you! My twins are from my FET. My embryo's from the FET looked better than the ones from my live session which resulted in my first born.

Leslie... we did a Prog test with the preg test, but not before. So.. I agree with the others.. so far, you're on par with other clinics. TWO DAYS!!! I'm so excited/nervous for you!!!

Jenn, Excellent news that at least your ins is paying for it. I hope the FET is magical .... will be keeping my eyes on this thread!

Jenn, congrats on being able to just move right into another cycle . I have not done an FET (we never have enough left to freeze) but when we were starting our most recent IVF adventure the clinic that we go to said that with the advances being made in freezing their success rates with embryos that survive the thaw are the same success rates as IVF.

Leslie, thanks for asking about my follies. It seems my follies think this cycle is just a big folly (sorry about that) They are growing VERY slowing, but they are getting bigger so that's good. Our original plan was to trigger on Sunday, retrieval on Tuesday, but the "girls" just aren't cooperating. I have had ultrasounds and bloodwork on Friday, Sunday, today (Monday) and now tomorrow. I don't even want to see the bill they are going to send for this many ultrasounds, etc. I am hoping for a trigger tomorrow night. It's funny because I keep expecting them to adjust my meds, but they don't. I just have to keep thinking that they know what they are doing...

TWO MORE DAYS! Wow, I am definitely thinking about you. Many positive thoughts coming your way, Leslie.

Leslie,

Are you going first thing in the morning to have your blood drawn? I can't wait to hear the good news -- I am sending all my good, positive thoughts to you and I have every possible body part crossed for you!

Just wanted to report that I am 23 minutes post HCG trigger. My retrieval will be Thursday morning.

I feel excited about it, but I'm a bit worried because based only on the ultrasound results I was not going to trigger tonight because the follies just aren't quite big enough, BUT when they saw my bloodwork, the E2 must have been high because they called and said to trigger tonight. I am still hoping that my follies spend the next 35 hours growing about 1.5 to 2 mm

Jenn, thinking of you. Many positive thoughts coming your way.

grow, Alisa's follies, grow!! Congrats on getting to the HCG shot--enjoy your day without any shots!

thanks, Megan & everybody, for all the positive vibes!

My appt is in a little over an hour, so I have to go get ready. I think this is going to be a really s l o w day... We decided to have dh answer "the call" this afternoon so I can hear the news from him. We're bracing for the worst but hoping for the best. I'm sure you all understand.

Brenda and Korin--I feel the SAME way! It's just 3:45 here -- usually they say results are in after 4. I told dh we should call, but he said to wait, so I'm trying to. But I have butterflies and I can't do anything...

I have checked obsessively today to see if you are pregnant Leslie. Sending you lots of good, sticky vibes. Oh, and I found 2 four leaf clovers this week (never, ever found one until last Wednesday) so I am sending you some of that luck: : :

This is my first chance to check in today. It's already 6:00 and I can't believe I'm beating Leslie's report. Rooting for a big big BFP!

Thanks for everyone's supportive thoughts. I have really enjoyed my no-shots day but I keep feeling as though I have forgotten something, not that I'm missing the shots or anything!

Come on Leslie! Dust Dust Dust

WTF?! hello...we're w a i t i n g . . .

thanks so much, everybody.

so...the first hour we cried. then we watered the lawn. then we ordered in dinner and I got the tiramisu. did I mention red wine? told my mom, cried some more.

still feeling like a deer in headlights. megan & jenn & iberk, I'm sure you know what I mean.

dh said he just can't go through this again -- it's too, too hard. 4 years of trying, including 7 iui's. he's ready to figure out how adoption works. I'm still in a haze.

I love you guys for all the support and understanding. I honestly don't think I could've gotten through the process--and this outcome--without you. You are my circle of angels.

ok, the "circle of angels" thing is really corny. but you remember in the movie/play Laramie where the friends put on angel wings and block the bigots from the view of Matthew Shepard's family? that's the kind of angel circle I mean. not that you're blocking anything, just that you're here. is this the wine talking?
