I got a call from my clinic and they will be contacting me next week to schedule my follow up. However, the embryologists are not doing retrievals and txfers the next two weeks, they take this time to calibrate their equipment each year...so that is when my Dr. also takes his vacation...so not sure when I'll be in or when I'll be txferring.

On a side note, I tested today and my hpt is soooo much darker than 3 days ago...and I thought it would be totally negative...not sure what that is all about Why are my levels going up?

I'll be 37 in one month. POOP!

Good luck girls!!! I love following all your journeys

Leah, I'm sorry and wish I could answer your question. It took me almost a month to finally get a negative test. After wanting and waiting so long to see two lines, it was always so hard seeing those two lines show up and knowing nothing was there. I hope everything works out soon for you, and you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Tina, good luck Tuesday.

Mandy, thanks and I have a retrieval date set for this Tuesday. I'm definitely nervous and excited. I don't know anything about follicle size, but I had few follicles that measured 20. I had several more than was between 13 & 18, and the doctor wanted to give them one more day to mature.

HI ladies. I need to read and catch up, but we are about to start our 4th IVF this month. I just started my period, called the dr, and I have my appt on Tuesday. I am really excited and nervous.

My first IVF was successful but my daughter was really sick and I had her at 21 weeks. My second produced my son Leiland who just turned 2, my third was a FET which worked but I miscarried at 9 weeks last Thanksgiving. We just moved back to CAlifornia and are ready to start again. PRAYING this FET works. I am so over ttc. I think we will be done after this next one, and although I am expecting it to work as the last 3 did, I am terrified of losing another.

So hi, I will try to catch up, and keep up. Life is crazy here with my 2 year old, but I am trying to keep up.

Hi Sarah. I'm sorry for your losses. I hope that this brings Leiland a baby brother or sister!!!

Good luck on your ER tomorrow, Jennifer! I'm crossing my fingers for lots of mature eggs!!! So, you should get you fert report on Wed, right???

Leah...I hope your follow up goes well. I'm so sorry that your HPTs are still dark. Ugh!

AFM...I'm up to 2 Estrace pills 2x per day & a shot of Lupron. Everything looks good so far. I go today for my annual exam (just so happens that I need it now & I have to have it done to get OR orders for transfer). I go back Thursday and if all looks good, I'll go up to 2 Estrace pills 3x per day & a shot of Lupron. So, I'm still trucking along & keeping my eye on the prize!

Jennifer - Good luck tomorrow! I hope they get a lot of beautiful eggs! I will be looking forward to your fertilization report!

Mandy - sounds like things are moving right along for you! Good luck with your annual exam and I hope everything turns out OK!

Leah - I hope your numbers go down fast so you can get started. Now that your clinic is "taking a break" for 2 weeks, I hope it goes by really fast for you and your beta gets to zero. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Good luck to all the other ladies that I missed!

I had my suppression check today. We are waiting to see what my E2 levels are but U/S showed two large cysts on my right ovary. One is 40mm the other 30 mm. Not sure yet what this means for our cycle.

Good luck Jennifer!!

Tinalou - keep us updated!

Sarah - welcome! I am SO very sorry for your losses. I am on IVF#2, I just miscarried and will have a FET as soon as my body is back on track. Looking fwd to this journey with you. (PS, Cassandra txferred 2 this time, txferred 1 on her fresh cycle).

AFM, I found out that my saline ultrasound I have to get before the FET is at no charge (YAY! for saving $500-600!!) I guess my Dr. doesn't charge this after you have a M/C..which is super nice.

I talked to my clinic and I have to wait for AF, then start BCP's on CD3 and then they will schedule my follow up apt and the Saline ultrasound...

Mandy...I made it back home around 10:00, and I was very pleased with how everything went. They were able to retrieve 17 eggs, and my doctor said he was confident in us conceiving from this cycle. I want to be able to relax and trust him, but I don't want to get my hopes up and be heartbroken again. I will find out tomorrow how many fertilized, and this wait is already killing me,lol.

On another note, thanks Mandy and everyone else for you support. I was so excited to be able to get home and share my retrieval with you. You guys have definitely made this whole process much easier.

Jennifer good luck with your eggs fertilizing. I hated waiting for that part. Are you hoping for a three or five day transfer?

Tina that's great news. Keep us posted.

AFM today was my baseline and started estrogen patches. I also picked up my folguard prescription and another. We have another ultrasound on Wednesday next week and scheduled to transfer on the 2nd. First beta will be on the 10th. I will however poas on the 9th because dh leaves town the 10th and the 9th is his bday.

Also, this cycle is free. Well for trade. I'm doing head shots for the re and his staff in exchange. I'm really excited about this.

I just got a call from the lab and 16 out of 17 eggs fertilized. We have a 3 day transfer set up for Friday at 11:00, but the nurse seemed very confident that we would end up doing a 5 day transfer. I'm so excited and hopeful...please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

YAY Jennifer!!! A 5 day transfer does sound likely. You have a great number of embryos to work with! Wahoooo! I'm super excited for you!

Sarah...My transfer is hopefully a 5-day on July 1st...Here's to hoping we are pregnant together!!! :-) My beta is on the 10th too. I hate POAS, but I might just have to on the 9th if you are!!!

AFM...I go back tomorrow for bw & u/s and will up my Estrace to 2 pills 3x per day. I actually just found out that I'm being transferred to another dept at work in a new office. I start June 26 & that's the day of my thaw and DH has to his thing. I can't go with him now. Booooo. I'm going to be so nervous about the fertilization report.

Jennifer that's wonderful news. Praying they grow strong. I've had good success with my 3 day transfers so its not a bad thing.

Mandy we can definitely be testing together on the 9th. I can never wait till the beta for a test. But this is just my excuse this time.

I'm sure you've all done the math but if this cycle sticks when will you be due? I think we're looking at about march 20th.
