BABY2014, yes my doctor is super strict on the protocol. At first it drove me crazy but the clinic had one of the highest success rates in the country for patients under 35 so there must be a reason to their madness. I'm on different medicine than a lot of people on the board but maybe that is because I produce so many eggs but never get pregnant. Who knows.

BABY2014 the extra month is going to bring you so many good things! Your positive attitude is going to help so much! Keep us updated on the steps of FET, I know nothing about it.


Today's blood work looked good with my estrogen at 1036 for day 9 of stims. They think trigger on Tuesday and ER on Thursday. Follicles were around 15 today and there were about 20 larger ones. It's so surreal that it is getting so close.

APRIL18 we can be cycle buddies! Baby 2014, I'll follow along your FET cycle and cheer you along!

April18 don't fret yet, they doubled my menopur the first visit so I am sure all will be good. They monitor you closely so they can adjust your meds tomorrow and you'll be right on track I'm sure. Keep us updated on what they say. I'm sure it will be all ok!

Wow! I've missed a lot in the couple of days I've been gone. I'm afraid to mention anyone by name because I know me well enough to know that I'll leave someone out.

Two days of Lupron down. I've had a headache pretty much nonstop since the day before AF came (2/5). I had a couple of days right after without one but then I started my BCPs and have had one pretty much nonstop with 4 migraines in that mix. Today, the headache was a little less. So I'm hoping the BCPs were a large part of the problem with the headaches and that they're going to completely go away or at least be less intense. We have our baseline exam this Thursday, start Menopur on Friday. Last time I was on Menopur my headaches went away completely so I'm really praying for that to repeat itself!!

Hope everyone is doing well. Good luck to everyone with upcoming visits, u/s, blood work, ER and ET.

Im doing ok. Cant wait to hear how many fertilized!!! But I'm only transferring one. Im 24, so we want to try for just 1 for a while. If it takes us a while, too many cycles, my Dr said they will try transferring more then 1.

I don't want to be a downer for you all but here is our news: no baby this time........I think this was our last IVF try. Perhaps a miracle will happen all on its own when we have "given up". Best wishes for you all continuing this grueling roller-coaster.

Sorry to hear that, Jill. I hope you are at or will find peace. Maybe that miracle will happen and you'll conceive naturally like you did with your baby girl.

Jill- I am so sorry, my heart goes out to you. I pray for comfort & a miracle too <3. God Bless!

Kelkl- thank you! I am a worrier by nature. everything was ok . thank you God! I can't help it. my mind always goes to worst case scenario lol.

Jracine-when will you find out how many fertilized?

we went in today & everything was ok. I was so worried when I found out I had taken the wrong amount of menopur. lining was good. we started with 19 last Monday, 14 are measuring, about 5-6 are on the smaller side. our coordinator sent us an email saying the clinic is participating in a documentary about ivf. I spaced it & was surprised to see a camera crew there. it was so strange lol.

sending LOVE out to all of you girls xoxo

Kelkl - we are on the same schedule but sounds like our estrogen is different. On day 9 I was at 1490 and day 10 at 2694. I was surprised they didn't trigger yesterday but we will trigger today they said maybe!? I'm getting ready for my daily U/S. I appreciate your doc's methodical methods. I bet that's why you won't have a fet. A friend that had fet told me that she was in her acupuncture treatment day of transfer when they told her that they were going to freeze them all. She was quite upset. I guess it helps me to know at day 10 that they know. I'm not big on surprises. Ok, lady! We are gonna have to keep up with each other! Feeling excited and like I have too pee all the time! My ovaries are giant! Lol I'll let you know what time I trigger!

Jill - I can't imagine how you must feel! My heart goes out to you!
