Still Waiting- I am taking PM shots. I got after work. I take 2 injections. One in each thigh and then the decapeptyl in my arm (My DH does that injection for me)

Jenny- Congrats on your blessing! I hope we will all be there with you soon! (It is taking longer than I expected!) And I am sure dreading the 2WW.

Jill- Try not to worry too much! You will know for sure on Wed! I know I would be a nervous wreck! I honestly think my husband has already bought PG tests! I will be praying for you!

Cali- Great to hear about your eggs! That is awesome!

Keep us posted Jill - I agree with Leah use the same test and google which ones are good that detect the lowest amount of hcg. I have read FRERs are good! Congrats to Jenny!

Yes, FRER's are the best LOL...however, Wondfo's from Amazon...at 30 cents or so a test are amazing...they were actually a little darker at first than my FRER....

Amber...kudos to you - in the LEG??? eeek I do all mine in my stomach and butt myself..the thigh just sounds like it would hurt ((HUGS))!

Thank you, everyone, for the congrats. Today's lines are about the same as yesterday's, but I did get a positive digi!

I hope you get a nice line today, Jill!

Amber - I also did Menopur in the abdomen. Thighs sound terrible

I am trying an Answer test strip tomorrow AM. Feeling a little downspirited right now......I don't have any news since the last update of confusion as I decided to wait untill tomorrow to test again. I am feeling hungry all the time, super thristy and tired along with slightly crampy. My boobs were super sore and swollen earlier (probably from the HCG trigger shot) but that has receded greatly. My BM's are getting to be a bit tricky to push out, while earlier they were super waterey. Like I said before, some symptoms are growing and others are going away.

Jill- Those symptoms sound like pregnancy to me!

Jenny- The thighs are painful! All of my bruises are turning green now! LOL. I only have one more night of these (I hope! Fingers crossed)

Still Waiting- Wow! You are STOCKED up on meds and POAS tests! I have pictures, but not as crafty as yours... They are on my blog though. (I have NO idea how to attached them on here!)

It's nice to see some posting about faint lines!!!!!!! ;o) Let's keep them comin'.....

Today should be day 1 of my medicated cycle for my FET. Of course, when AF is supposed to show, she flakes! And, no, there is no way I could be pregnant, LOL! I am sure within the next 24 hours I can take my first pill and call the clinic - it's just annoying that when it's supposed to happen, it doesn't and any other month, it's like clock work....

What is up with that anyway????

Thinking of everyone! Sending positive and sticky baby dust vibes!

Just finished my ultrasound and lab to check my lining progress.
Triple layered and 15.20mm, they will call later with my estradiol levels.

It was actually a really fun visit, they are preparing for Halloween, and every year they go ALL out and everyone dresses up. I have been going to this clinic since '08 and somehow I am always there for some reason or another and always see them dressed up lol. It's why I am so excited my transfer was scheduled for Halloween.

Anyway, I just love it there, it feels like a second family
And thankfully everything looks as it should so far so.... Yay!!!

10 days until I am PUPO!!!!!!

Melissa, It is great that you love your clinic! It must be kind of fun to see medical staff in costume.

Stllwaiting, Is your name Leah or is that the name of the little one in the picture? She is a cutie.

I did my Answer hpt strip this morning. It cam up with an exceptionally faint line (which is better than none at all). This is hopeul considering that this brand is not an "early response" hpt. It says only to use after the first day of your missed period. 2 more days until my Beta blood test

My PIO is in sesame oil and my retrieval is tentatively Oct 29th, so a transfer either around November 1st or 3rd GOOD LUCK!!

WTG lining! Mine was only an 8 the week before transfer!! Did they tell you what they like it at for transfer? I wouldn't be surprised if they moved your transfer up if your lining is already awesome like that! How many days have you been on estrogen?

That sounds SOOOO fun re halloween and dressing up!!

I just got another barely visible line on another "answer" test. I would attempt to load pictures but the lines are so slight that my camera won't pick them up! I have asked my husband to get a FRER for me on the way home to use tomorrow morning.

YAY FRER's are the best....their website has a 2$ coupon to print!!

AFM..I had a message...my estradiol is only 64.7...does someone have a good reference for what it's supposed to be (this is day 3 of stims) ...so they are bumping me up..which I'm excited about. I want good eggies!

Was doing 2 menopur/4 bravelle, and I was supposed to do one more day of this and then just do 4 bravelle,

They are adding another bravelle tonight (so 2M 5B today total)

Tues - 2 Menopur/5 Bravelle
Wed - 7 Bravelle
Then I'll just be doing Bravelle from then on. GROW FOLLIES, GROW!! I went from 4 Bravelle to 7! That is a big jump!

Hey Ladies!!

I just found out today that we will be starting our IVF cycle on November 23. I know I probably belong more to the November/December cycle, but Leah said I could come hang out! I wish each of you nothing but the best and each of you to have a whole bunch of I will be here to listen/learn and cheer you on!

Hoping - My PIO is also in sesame oil. I've heard the olive oil is less painful, but more expensive.

Jill - Congrats on the line! I will be waiting on your beta results, as well as mine on Wednesday!

Leah - That seems like such a huge dose to me! I hope it gets you great eggies! I haven't found a good chart on E2 levels. It seems they are too variable from woman to woman.

Good luck Starlitnite!

This morning's tests-

Hello Ladies
Today was my ultrasound mapping and another painful procedure of the endometriosis test which I don't have but the dr says it gets your uterus very healthy for the big day!! six more days of birth control pills. Hopefully a period to follow soon so we can start meds on the 1st of Nov. very nervous about getting all the meds right but our wonderful nurse gave us a personal number for ANY questions we may have!!:-)
Sending happy thoughts and best wishes to you all

Jenny - girl that is one big fat POSITIVE!!!!!!! Wahoooooo!!!!
And about the PIO - my friend who took hers in ses oil was shocked that I don't have two diff needles (one to take out of the vile and another to inject). I guess it's bc it may be thinner??? Welcome Starlit! Leah, no clue what that means :-/
