April-yeah I know what you mean about there not being a lot online about it, I probably googled it a thousand times in the 2 months we where waiting to retest DH's sperm. It seriously drove me crazy. As for the crawfish boil they put potatoes, mushrooms, corn, sausage. That was really good!! And he promised to come to my house and make some just for me when I can have the actual crawfish again!!! I think the next few days is going to go by slow. I though about taking a urine pregnancy test at work (I work for a Dr. office) thinking that it would probably detect the Hcg sooner, but DH doesn't want me to, so I won't. Besides it is just 3 more days...I can get through 3 days!!! Thanks so much for the cheers and Prayers!!! Let me know what your RE says tomorrow.

hey Lisa! that crawfish boil sounds soooo good! I haven't had crawfish in about 2 years now. i'm having a craving for some. DH isn't really a fan, so maybe my sister & I will go when she visits in 2 mo. none of our family or friends knows that we've done IVF. it is so crazy, every time we're in cycle she wants to come :/. her timing is crazy.

you're in the home stretch!!! I think if I worked @ a dr's office I would be tempted to take one there lol. the first 2 yrs of TTC I think I went a bit over board. I bought the bulk cheapie strips & would take them all the time!

i'll let you know when I hear back from our nurse XO

OMG I love crawfish!! Like wait all year for crawfish season, can eat lbs and lbs. of it! I eat it until my fingers are sore from opening them, but since I didn't want the mercery No Crawfish for me !! Yeah I am starting to get tempted to POAS, but it's only 2 days away so I can hold out. Especially since I would only do it if it was the 1st morning urine and I am not getting out tonight to buy a test LOL!!

i love to eat almost anything that lives in the water! it's ok that you missed crawfish season this year. you can enjoy it next year after you have your first baby!!!

our nurse got back to us about the Letrozole. she said it won't benefit DH because his hormones are normal, but she did say it was an excellent question! so thank you for that

i was googling low motility & DH has 2 contributing factors. 1 is high stress from his job, he works a lot of hours. 2 his high body heat, he is always burning up. i wouldn't know how reduce or lower either one of those things. we are going to try these supplements the urologist suggested. i hope it works, they were freaking expensive! 160 bucks for a 2 mo supply.

EEEEKKK so close to beta! sweet baby dreams <3

April, I hope the meds help your DH! I'm glad they are doing everything they can to get your BFP next cycle. Maybe neither of us could have a good pregnancy this cycle so we could cycle together next time and get our BFP TOGETHER! And Lisa, you will just have to be the expert for us so you can tell us everything to expect since you'll be three months ahead of us in your pregnancy. See I have it all worked out. Love both of you ladies!

Kelkl- you are too sweet!!! i'm glad we will be cycling together again i might be 1 month behind you. we are going to do the vitamin therapy (hope it works), but we won't know if there was an improvement until so close to the ET . i don't want to be picking out a donor last min. it's such a big deal, i want to take my time with this huge decision if that is a choice we need to make.

Lisa- how are you feeling Honey? i am soooo freaking excited for you!!! i hope you're having a good day @ work. no stress & happy patients/co workers . i'm praying for a healthy pregnancy/baby & an extra prayer that it's a girl!

i started my bcp yesterday which i was actually happy to do. after the 1st failed cycle my AF was horrible & the spotting lasted for 1 month (sorry TMI). i also started exercising, i gained 8 lbs with these past 2 cycles. i wish i was the weight would go straight to my booty, but i'm apple shaped. the weight goes to my face, upper arms, belly & upper thighs. i hope i can trim down fast

sending you girls HUGS & PRAYERS!!! XOXO

Hi Ladies!!! I am so excited/ready for tomorrow! Today was such a crazy day. I got re-ended this morning on my way to work. I am fine, and my car hardly has a little scratch, but I went spastic because it is a Brand new car!! It doesn't even have 1,300 miles yet! And then the guy told me he didn't have insurance. Lets just say I called 911 and I am pretty sure he went to jail! I would have let him just go, but he was being hateful and telling me there was nothing wrong with my car and calling me a drama queen so I just made him have a really really bad day. If he would have just said sorry he could have gone on his marry way. My husband says he messed with the wrong "drama queen" LOL!

Thanks April, when I say barely a scratch, I mean it is hard to see the scratch and I can get it fixed at the dealership for nothing. I doubt I will be sore at all. It just really scared/upset me. But I am so very ready for tomorrow!! I really believe that I am pregnant! I will post shortly after I know, I know you are waiting on pins and needles almost as much as me LOL! Kelk - I am so sorry about all the crazy stuff going on with you and am so glad that you and April will be cycling together Friendly "faces". And I promise to give you ALL the dirt on pregnancy LOL! MissB- your cycle will be starting soon! I am so very excited for you and can't wait to follow you to pregnancy I will update tomorrow LOVE you ladies! So glad I have been going through this journey with you all!!

AMEN to quitting the PIO injections, those are the worst! is it @ the 6 week mark that you get to hear the heartbeat? this might be jumping the gun, but when do you get to find out the gender?!

soooo excited for you!!! XOXO
