Thank you everyone for your kind words. Feeling a bit better today... I worked from home so it was easier and kept my mind busy. I'm off tomorrow but DH and I have lots on plans! I'm going to breakfast with a good friend and later we are going to dinner and bowling with hubby's sister and aunts :-)

Thanks Jenny for the info! That eases my mind a bit to know they can do it within an hour. I checked with my clinic yesterday too.

Kim- what trigger shot were you on? I did Lupron so it was easy... It was a SQ shot instead of IM. Have a safe trip and good luck with ER!

JennyT ((HUGS))

Jennlyn yaaaa - hope the 2ww goes by fast for you....are you a tester???

Kim, good luck!

AFM, I got an email from the clinic saying everything looked good and they will give me all the details on Tuesday!! EEEEK

On a frustrating note, my credit card got hacked today, and I have all my cable, phone, garbage, etc all set up on autopay from that card....going to be a lot of people to call. They spent all my cashback money at Land's End....which I was planning on using to fund some of my drug money. They will get it back for me, but not for 1 to 2 billing cycles AND now I don't have that credit card to use. Stupid Scammers Good thing Discover sent me a msg letting me know I changed my email address, which I did not. *sigh*

Cassandra, Glad you are feeling better!

Jenlynn, YAY! Hope the 2WW is going as good as possible

Leah, I'm sorry about your card Some people have no regard for others, that's very frustrating! I hope it gets sorted out quickly!

AFM- ER went pretty good, we got 25 eggs! The only bad part was I woke up before they were done and I wasn't very sedated for the last 2-4 eggs (ouch). Anesthesia doesn't tend to affect me all that much typically, same with surgery but they have a little more control during surgery. Doesn't sound like I'll hear anything on fertilization until we go for transfer on monday.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

JenLynn – Congratulations, you are PUPO!!!

Kim – awesome!!! Get some rest.

Cassandra – Very sorry for the BFN, but glad you are moving on to an FET!

Onlybygrace – sorry the Decapetyl burns, how long are you on it?

Leah – YAY!!! So excited for you!!! Can’t wait to hear the details!!!! But OMGoodness, I’m sorry about your credit card! That really sucks! Glad you found out about it quickly, hopefully things will get fixed fast!

Nothing new or exciting with me, just doing the estrogen patches.

OK, question for you girls….what beverage (nonalcoholic) do you drink regularly? Since I’ve started the estrogen patches I’m really trying to cut back on my caffeine (diet Pepsi). I’ve increased my water intake like crazy, but I miss flavor….I’m looking for something low calorie but without artificial sugar and any ideas?

Leah- yay, so happy for your good news! And I have a distinct feeling I will absolutely be a tester!! I'm so emotional and of course hyper-acutely aware of every little twinge I feel or think I feel! When do you think is a plausible day to begin testing? I am trying to hold out for 5dpt... Also, I was sorry to hear bout your credit card fraud. A similar thing happened to DH and I when we needed to charge for our IVF package and it was a hassle.

Kim- omg, 25 eggs!! That is wonderful! Fingers and toes crossed for many, many little embies to be waiting for you on Monday!

Aimee- I've been trying to cut back on caffeinated beverages as well (I am also a diet Pepsi lover). I recently started drinking Fruit Punch Gatorade which is good for a little flavor and I've been drinking lots of fruit juices too.

I hope you all enjoy the weekend! I am going to try to stay busy since two days in to my 2ww I'm already restless and anxious!

OH Cassandra, I'm so sorry! I'm just reading about your BFN now. I know how you feel and it's horrible. If you want to pm me please feel free to do so. Take as long as you need to grieve, as it is a horrible loss. My T&Ps go out to you.

GL ladies, hopefully there will be more BFPs in the near future!

Leah, sorry about your card getting hacked!

Kim: 25!!!! Wow! KUP on your fertility report!

AFM, I iced the area yesterday before the shot and I hardly felt anything at all! Hope that's my magic cure going foward!

Jenlynn - I got a positive at 6dp3dt, so I think you could test at 5dp5dt - my test was SUPER light then, but it was there! I buy the Wondfo tests from Amazon, they are only 30 cents and then when I *think* I see a line, I use an FRER!!

Aimee, I like Simply Apple (or Orange or Grapefruit) and I just put a shot or two into a glass of water. It really helps get the water down. I need to cut out my diet pepsi now too!

Gretchen just wondering how you're doing?
Did your start date get postponed, or have you started the Lupron?

Hi everyone! Hope ya'll had a real good weekend! The weather in MD was gorgeous, so I was outside most of the weekend! As for the non-caffeinated drinks - I switched over to caffeine-free Coca-Cola... Pepsi and Diet Pepsi also has caffeine free. I only drink about 1-2 cans a day and the rest is water. In the morning I drink fruit juice - Welch's Passionfruit Mango or Dragonfruit Mango. Both are really good.

I hope the 2ww goes by fast for you JenLynn! KUP on when you test! Good luck and hope to see a BFP soon!

Kim - did you have the transfer today? Good luck!

Nicholle, thank you for your kind words and sincerity. How are you doing? I can't remember if you had a follow up with your RE yet???

AFM - AF reared her ugly head in on Saturday. Not as bad as I thought it would be since the last one was the first of January! Hoping this week goes by fast so we can get our plan together with the RE next week. I don't like "not knowing" what is going to happen next! I feel empty without a plan! Taking it one day at a time though and mentally and physically preparing myself for the next cyle.

Hey guys here is a quick update. We did the transfer just a little while ago. A lot of the eggs didn't divide like they were supposed to so not sure if they'll even freeze any. They did transfer 3 embryos, two that were really good. I'm on my way home so using my phone. Will update when I get home to computer.

J&K - congrats on your transfer today. You are pregnant until proven otherwise!

Me: I have appointment tomorrow at 7 am. I start lupron tomorrow. DH is still not feeling great but starting to get better. We are moving forward!
I can't believe it is here. I am scared, anxious and can't sleep at night. Maybe I need acupunture twice a week instead of one?

Aimee- Grace - how is the Lupron treating you?

Alright guys, I'm home! So here's all of it, Friday 3/8 ER, 25 eggs. I felt terrible all weekend, its starting to get better now. Some fertilized naturally and some with ICSI, a total of 18 fertilized. By Sunday a lot of them had died out (not sure how many). Today (3/11) transfer, we still have quite a few embryos but most of them are fragmented; they will keep watching them for a couple more days to see what they do. RE suggested we transfer 3 embryos (all 8 cells, two were the highest grade) given that they haven't really been doing very well considering the amount of eggs retrieved which we did. Of the embryos left, there are some seven cells, six cells, one was only two cells, not sure if there were any other eight cells left. I was a little shocked to hear we didn't have very many good embryos so was mostly focused on what we could do with what we did have and didn't remember to ask for what all the exact numbers were. I did ask them to give me an update either today or tomorrow so hopefully we will get some good news! I guess my 2WW is on! I will go for BW to check progesterone on Friday and my beta will be 3/25. I'm sorry if this is a jumble and not organized, still trying to process some of it.

Kayakr- Good luck at your appointment tomorrow and I hope your DH is feeling better very soon!
