Tarheel- YAY!!! Congrats!!! That's an awesome beta!

Leah- Glad you're feeling a little better, hope you continue to improve from here!

Aimee- I'm with your DH, POASing will make you crazy!

Gretchen- How are you doing? Is Lupron still giving you nasty headaches? I hope its going better now!

Grace- Did you get everything straightened out with your clinic? I hope you are in better spirits

Thinking of you all and you are in my prayers Hope you all have a good night!

AFM- I have my second beta tomorrow. I'm a little nervous but mostly just excited. If its all good news, I'll probably tell mine and DH's parents this weekend and wait a few more weeks to tell anyone else

Update on me: I had acupuncture this evening - which really helped my headache I get from Lupron. I am doing pretty good though. Some emotional rage now and then (2,3 times a day) I can feel it coming on though and can pretty much control it. I know it's not really me it's the meds. DH gave me my other big shot this morning of the Delestrogen... didn't feel a thing. I am hoping he does that good when I get to PIO.

Tonight - I am feeling very grateful for what I have and where I have been. I have so much to be thankful for and even if this IVF cycle doesn't work I will be heartbroken but will continue to look at all I have that I don't deserve. I suppose I am a little emotional tonight.

Aimee - you are not out of the game so do not let that Pee stick discourage you. Stay positive and focus on your loving DH and DS.

Kim & Tarheel - hoping those numbers double and double and double.

Leah - I hope you feel better. I sure hope that stone knocks this crap off! lol

Grace - how are you today?

Good night all - may all of our babies find us in these next several days!

Gretchen- I'm glad you have your DH to do the shots and he does such a good job! I've started getting hives at the injection sites the last few days but RE says just to take a couple of benedryl about an hour before!

I'm a Happy Happy girl today, RE just called me and my second beta is 457!!!!!!! I was quite surprised, he called me on his lunch break from his cell phone! Now I just have to call the clinic back and schedule my ultrasound appointment!!!! I'm super excited!!!

I hope everyone is having a great day!!!

Grace- Thanks, I'm glad things are on track for you!

Tamara- Thanks, Good Luck with your shots tonight!

Aimee- Thanks and don't give up yet! If I had tested I would have definitely had a BFN at that point, at 17dpo mine was only 48! I wasn't having any serious symptoms either, occasional mild cramping and being tired was about it.

AFM- First ultrasound will be April 8! I'm 5 weeks today!!!

That's fantastical KIM, what a great beta jump!!!!

Not sure if you are putting heat on the injection site, but I had that happen for a couple days and I stopped putting the warm towel on it after the injection and it stopped the hives. My acupuncturist suggested it and it worked.

Hi ladies... I'm still here. Just been following along with everyone else's great BFP's and beta numbers!!

-- congrats to everyone with BFP's!!!

-- thinking about everyone else starting/going through the shots and the retrieval process etc... many prayers & sticky vibes going your way!

AFM: went in Wednesday to check progresterone & E2 levels (everything was fine); will go in Wednesday for (I guess) beta #1? Not really sure how this works, but I'll figure it out as I go.

My horrible gas pains/nausea seem to have stopped. I still get indigestion, but its hard to say if thats just SOP for me or a lovely side effect from the PIO shots {I don't think I'm allergic to them}. Today I have a pretty killer headache, and of course every day I've been tired about 4pm and want to nap like crazy! Fortunately, I'm on spring break this week & I've had lots of opportunities to rest. I've had some minor cramping/twinges in my lower abdomen, on the left side of my uterus, pretty much every day since the transfer on Sunday. I'm trying not to read much into any of the "symptoms" because I know it could be from the PIO shots and I don't want to get too excited.

Anyways, so just checking in.
~Brooke

Good luck Tamara!!!!

Aimee, I can't wait until Monday!

AFM, I have good news!! I had 9 follies today - sizes 15 to 11.5. I continue ganirelix and menopur at night tonight and tomorrow, continuing with the 4 Bravelle in the mornings and trigger Sunday night at 11:45pm...anyone going to be around to keep me awake Easter night lol???? Retrieval is Tuesday morning at 11:45!! I'm so excited.

I've been chugging water and I'm not in pain anymore, but I feel tenderness and I'm not sure if it's my kidney or my ovaries! But I think I'm on the right track.

Bonus? I'm SURE I wasn't hydrating myself enough and now I have to hahaa

Brooke, a headache was my only pregnancy sign last time....and being tired is an excellent sign good luck!!

Well, this morning I gave in and POAS'd... at first there was only 1 line and I wasn't too disapointed... I just said it was too early and went about my day. When I came home from the Easter egg hunt... this is what I saw:

[IMG][/IMG]

I don't know if y'all can see it like I can but there is definently a faint line. DH wanted me to POAS again so thats the 3rd one...
