So I am currently STILL waiting.

Whats the hold up??

A couple wants my eggs(Apparently very nice German couple who wants a baby of German decent with mixed religion), but they wanna egg share with another couple. So, I have to wait.

I am also waiting for my next CD3. My FSH was high last time (13.6) when before its been below 9. My RE thinks its just from my body readjusting to not being pregnant. I believe that since just now after 4 months of extreme hair loss, my hair has gone back to its normal shedding. He plans on doing the same drugs I was on last time -- Lupron (Yay! LOVE Lupron!!!) Menapur and Bravelle. So I can expect to stim for 10 days. Then in July, we are gonna prepare for a September FET

I am one of the few who really enjoyed it because I was on a long lupron cycle (my body does not respond to BCP's) and lupron just put all my hormones in check. From the day I started lupron until about a month after I gave birth, I was truly a non-moody person.

The only thing you need to watch out for with lupron is a yeast infection. I got a nasty one about a week into it. (I was on it my entire IVF cycle until I triggered)

I have been a bit moody/crabby lately That would be fantastic if I feel the same way!

How do you get a yeast infection from it? I am using a shot? That may be a dumb question??

Lupron causes your estrogen to drop because your are throwing your body into menopause. No estrogen = no lubrication down there (which is the body's way to remove bacteria/yeast) so that = yeast overgrowth!
