    Here is my update.. First off let me say I am so sorry for taking so long to report back here.. I have had a lot of personal things going on, and while I have been checking in briefly, I havent been posting.. I hope everyone is doing well.. and Rhonda, Congrats again!!! I cant wait to hear those beautiful BFP words from you! Those embies look Beautiful!!!!!

    AFM: First off.. I am still in shock about our IVF.. I was so happy with my ovaries, if I could take them out to celebrate I would! I am so glad the shots are over at least for a little while,,, now just a little bed rest


    Our initial Fert report: on 8/14:
    19 eggs retrieved, 19 mature
    16 eggs fertilized normally (naturally)
    2 fertilized abnormally
    1 unfertilized

    So overall we had 16 embryos and all were good quality!!
    and as of Tuesday DAY 4.. we still had 16 embryos!!

    Yesterday (Day 5) we transfered 2 blastocysts (AA and AB) quality (one was alreading hatching) (I have a really cool pic!)

    We find out more tomorrow about how many are going to be frosties, as they will only freeze good quality Day 5.. right now, the embryologist said we have at least 3 today, and the others are still growing..I'll report the final count when I hear it

    Im really scared of twins and it was a really hard call. DH and I have no children, I am 37 years old..with a m/c in March... so I tried to make the best decision possible..

    You would make anyone an exceptional egg donor girlie!!! LOL To be 37 and produce such a high quantity and obviously high quality that so many fertilized and made it to day 4. I would tell the embryologist to freeze anything that makes it to day 5. If they don't arrest, keep em! You are going to have an amazing cycle and you better count on twins at this rate!!!!

    WOW!! That is really, really amazing! I'm so happy for your awesome follie production and fert report! I could only DREAM of having so many, and I'm about your age, too. This sounds like the perfect cycle for you. Can't wait to hear your beta results and BFP news!!!! When is your beta?

    That's good stuff! I'm kind of jealous actually. I got 11 eggs and only 5 were mature. Way to grow some eggs! You're going to have frosties too! So happy for you! Get lots of rest and keep us posted!

    Wow! That is amazing! I am 35 and I am in the process of performing my first round of IVF. I sure do hope I'm as lucky as you are! Congratulations! What did you eat to produce such good eggs! lol

    That is very funny. I understand with what you are thinking here. I would tell the embryologist to freeze anything that makes it to day 5. If they don't arrest, keep em! You are going to have an amazing cycle and you better count on twins at this rate!!!!

    I just got a significant wave of twinges just now that were much stronger and lasted a half minute. They were more in the center this time, but a little to the left. Today has just been so much pulling & twinges that I simply can't ignore it!

    Thought you ladies might like to know. I had my first u/s today and we have 2 babies!! One is measuring kind of small so please pray. (I posted in April DD if you want more detailed info) I'm just so happy! You girls are all next! I feel such good things going on for you all! Thank you all for all of your support!

    OK I just found this thread - what a confusing thing to lose out beloved IVF thread!! But Ive read all the posts and I know you all feel the same way.

    OK Rhonda - I posted this in the clomid blog, but CONGRATULATIONS, RHONDA!!! I'm thriled that you're finally got your You such inspiration to me and all the rest of us waiting to cycle. I feel my BFP is just around the corner since you now have yours. Praying for a very H&H 9 months. I can't wait to hear all about your journey these next 9 months! You've been just like a sister to all of us with your love and support and I couldn't be happier for you. I'm crying as I type this and I just have all the love in the world for you and your LOs. xoxoxo

    YAY!! Congrats on the 9 blasts! That is amazing!

It's like taking the keys away and then saying "Sorry, get home the best way you can." I try very hard not to complain because I know all of us are STC and want the best for each other. BUT the dissappearing IVF forum has officially pissed me off.

    Sorry for the rant, but that's how I feel.

    I wish everyone the best in their individual journies.

    AFM: It'll be a while before I cool off, goodbye!!
    I feel the same way. Hope you're feeling better soon and I really hope they can bring it back. I'm being positive and assuming it is just an oversight and not intentional. They know how much it meant to us. Hang in there, cycle buddy!

To be in a place where you are not able to conceive by natural means is so different than the other struggles. We all have STC for some time and have gone through the normal struggles over time (temping, watching ovulation, clomid, etc), but we are beyond that and our only options are with medical assistance. Any new person who wants to know more after being told by her OBGYN she needs to see an RE and then is recommended for IUI or IVF can get so much out of those stories & experiences now buried in Clomid Blog. It's not what I am missing, it's the women who don't even know about the stories that will be missing out. They would never even suspect to find those stories in a clomid blog.

    I think it's fine that IVF sisters complain out loud so we can move forward and continue our journeys. So many have just completed cycles or are in them now, so this is very sensitive.
    Well said, Rhonda. You're always the voice of calm reason. Thanks for that, Mama!.

    Thank you. Hopefully they will be able to put the thread back. We're all here should you need to go down the IVF road. Good luck.

    32ellah~ Sounds amazing!!!!

    Cakegal!!!! OMG!!! I'm soooo excited!! I know one is measuring smaller, but I will pray that LO catches up and both continue to grow and develop!! I miss our old thread too...right now it's all saved in the Clomid thread. Frustrating! I will be stalking you in April DD!!!

    Thanks Melissa! I hope I'm not reading anything into all the tugs & few twinges, but I pray it is implantation!! I will check you out in April DD too!

    32ellah- Thanks:-) I am praying these are good signs. I'm also very gassy most of the time, so I don't want to mistake any feelings I get if they are simply some sort of gas pains. I just don't normally feel gas in my uterus...lol! You have just a little over a week before your beta, so don't worry, the weekend will fly by and you'll be down to a 1ww!!! Hang in there...it's tough...

    AFM: Went to Walmart early this morning before dropping kids off at school so I could get my 3-pack HPT!!! You know I'm obsessing! DH agrees we wait to test Sunday morning, so no sneak peak tomorrow. I bought the First Response Early Detection one that reads up to 6 days before missed period (most early tests read 5 days before missed period). So, hopefully we will get a BFP early if in fact we did get pregnant on this cycle. I am trying not to be too eager for my BFP because I don't want to be depressed if it is reading BFN when in fact it may be way to early to see. The one reason I have always been against HPT's, but I just have to try!

    I don't know why and would like to extend my apologies, but I don't know why the original thread is gone.

    It was on the Radar to save, protect and keep as a sticky.

    Please forgive me. I have stickied this and edited the title of your new "IVF Sisters" thread.
