    Mspy, I just HATE that you had to go through that I am very nervous about OHSS. How soon did you get your first U/S following the start of your stims? I go in 10/9/08 to get scanned, which will be on the 7th day of my stims, but I don't take the stims until night, so I will have only taken six shots. Did your OHSS happen that quickly?

    I'm not sure exactly when my ER will be yet, but sometime in the next few weeks

    Default 2nd ultrasound results.....

    Hi Ladies,

    Just got back from my second ultrasound.
    Everything looks good.
    Baby A's heartbeat was low compared to B and C, but, I am trying not to get too worried. I believe everything is going to be fine and I will have as many babies as I am supposed to.

    I am waiting for a call from the nurse because I am going to be going a High Risk doctor from now on amd they are making an appt for me for next week. I was a little sad because today was the last day of seeing my RE and I really like him. He is so compassionate and he really made sure he saw me for 95% of my appointments.

    MSPY - I start stimming on Saturday with my first U/s and B/w next Friday 10/10, I'm looking at an E/R on 10/15 with E/T on 10/18 based on previous cycles but hoping it gets pushed out a day as this will match my natural cycle and even with all this extra help I believe mother nature still has her way of maintaining control.
    Erin guess we are cycle buddies. Thanks for your reply. At least with the last 3 cycles we know what doesn't work.
    Frances look after yourself, you and the babies will be fine, lots of rest! You'll need it when they all arrive.

    Thanks to everyone who has sent me messages of support and encouragement. It really means a lot to me. I am so happy for all of you with BFP.

    Erin...I looked at your story and the tears liked to never stopped falling. I am so praying for you that your IVF goes well.

    Madmax...I pray for your IVF to go well also. It is such an exciting journey but it can sure keep us on the edge of our seat.

    I had my first IVF (after failed IUI's) on Sept 21. I am going to my RE at 7:30 tomorrow morning for my first beta. As it gets closer to time for my appt the more anxious and impatient I get! Once again thanks for all the support and I will let all of you know my results tomorrow.

    Erin: Yay for first u/s! That was exactly what my RE said when I had my first u/s, "nice and quiet". Just make sure your ovaries don't get too big if not you'll end up like me (my ovaries swell up bigger than 10cm each side when I had OHSS). It didn't subside until 1st week of AF the following cycle. My ovaries were so huge that there moved over to my diaphragm when I lay down causing difficulty in breathing. Whens your ER and ET?

    Madmax: Yes i am just as glad as you are when AF arrived (ready to being IVF cycle). Cycle buddies with Erin? Do you have your estimated ER and ET?

    lisa41: Welcome! We await your news in anticipation! Don't we love the suspense? Even though it's not me but I'm equally as excited for everyone else!

    Elle: Go go go POAS!!!!!!!!!!Not now of course...but the soonest you can!

    Mia: When will you be back in action?????? We miss you!!!!

    RSC: Congratulations on your fantastic beta numbers! Hope to hear more news when you go in for your 1st u/s!

    Frances: How are you doing with your super triplets????

    Thanks....tomorrows the big day!

    Hey ladies,

    I am new to this TTC/IVF, I started the lupron on the 18th of Sept and today 10/2 I got my first shot of the Menopur. I am suppose to take 2 shots of menopur a day and one of the lupron. I have never done this so I am pretty confused and I think going crazy They also told me that my EA was 51.6 not sure what that means.

    Barb! with everything! It is definitely a lot to remember and is pretty confusing at times. Everyone's protocol is different, but you'll get through it!

    malf, please send me patience because I REEEEEALLY need them right now. I'm going a wee !

    Mad Max, best of luck with the stims. You'll do great! I think your RE has your best interests at heart, and wouldn't change a thing if he didn't think it would help, so rest easy and enjoy the road ahead.

    ajf, thanks a million for the prayers and babydust! So glad to hear that AF arrived and you'll be getting your FET schedule ASAP! Great news and best of luck with it!

    Erin, "nice and quiet" sounds just perfect. Mine were never too painful and I got seven good eggies to work with (though more grew overall), so here's hoping they're not painful but produce lots of beautiful, perfect sized eggs! And it is a total emotional rollercoaster, but I keep thinking, it has to be worth it all in the end!

    RSC, that sounds like a perfect second Beta! I hope we're all so lucky, girl!

    mspy, I want you to join in the action, too! Can't wait to hear about your FET. :celebrate:

    Frances, glad to hear that your appt was good and the babies are doing well. Maybe Baby A is the opposite gender from B & C, so that has something to do with the difference in heartbeats? I hope the new specialist is as good as your RE. So excited about your trips!!!

    Alma, yey for hearing the heartbeat!!! That's so exciting! I think I'd definitely be crying, too. One healthy baby is all worth it, huh? YEY!

    Lisa, sending tons of GOOD LUCK and :pray: for your Beta. GO !!! Did you break down and do a HPT, and if not, how did you manage to talk yourself out of doing one???

    BarbD, ! It can be very confusing at first, but just stick with the instructions and take your time to do it right. You'll do great! Good luck on your journey and please keep us all posted as you go.

    Girls, I looked up the side effects of progesterone (Why? Why?) and now I'm beginning to worry that my symptoms are just the progesterone, and not PG. Can anyone share their experience after taking progesterone suppositories? I need some good news...

    Elle, STEP AWAY FROM THE STICK!!! You are less than 72 hours away from hearing the BEST news straight from the horse's mouth. The definitive, don't have to question it, wonder about it, worry about, hold the stick up to the light, post it on here for second opinions, no fooling around NEWS. I will be watching this space on Monday. But as I told RSC, if you crack, for heaven's sake - update us!!!
    As for the progesterone, I was on the supp. a number of times, but did the PIO after IVF. That was my first and only pregnancy, and I have to say the symptoms were WAY different from the prog supp. My boobs were sore in both cases, but with the pg they got HUGE. Not just bigger but 2 sizes bigger. FAST. Then there was the whole food thing. Like being starving but vaguely nauseous at the same time, requiring the EXACT food in my head to avert disaster. Oh, and a weird taste in my mouth. Like, chemical or metallic, maybe? So, enquiring minds want to know - what are your symptoms, woman???

    Max, I think you have a knockout protocol this time and am sending loads of prayers for SUPER success!

    ajf, mspy and Mia, what are your FET timelines looking like? I am pleased to report that the old witch is in the house!!! If I get the all-clear on the fibroids next week (oh please, oh please, oh please) I am back in the game! Do I hear cycle buddies?

    Erin, I seriously think you're going to kick all of our butts. If I remember, Sylvia (Megan) holds the record. Get to work, girl. And don't worry, it doesn't have to be painful! I cruised along pretty easily.

    RSC, that beta kicks booty!!! My RE wants 66% every 48h. You're rocking it, girl!!!

    Alma, glad you heard a healthy little heartbeat!!

    Lisa, update??

    Welcome, Barb!!

    We are starting femara after this round of provera, or if I get my period on the provera which happens sometimes. I really, really hope this makes a difference. We did clomid (3rd round at 50 mg 3-7) for the girls. I seem to get pregnant ok, I just have miscarriages between 5-12 weeks. Hopefully the prometrium and the controlled cycle will make a difference. I am really tired/scared of miscarrying at this point. I have a feeling this will take a while though.

    Thanks... I was just wondering why my RE office are planning to do U/S on Monday. Seemed kind of soon to me. Maybe Im wrong but I did not think you could get heartbeat that quick. I will only be 15 days past 5 day transfer by then.

    Doctors can do an ultrasound once the beta is over 2000.
    At that time they can see the gestational sac and sometimes the fetal pole, but, if you are under 6 weeks pregnant, they most likely will not here/ see heartbeat (too early).

    Talking My results are in! (x-posted)

    So on Sunday I poas and got a very faint I thought I was making it up and Monday it was even lighter. Tuesday (my FF test date) was a little darker but not as dark as Sunday. I called my Drs. Office and they had me come for bloodwork. They said it was low (32) but definately positive and where it should be and I did the repeat on Thursday & it tripled to 97!!

    Dh is very excited. I was so sick today that I lived on bagel chips and all things ginger up until a couple hours ago.

    What else should I tell you all? Up until Wed. I had no real symptoms other than what I would consider normal (for myself) as pms. The whole reason why I tested was to prove to my dh it was going to be negetive...yeah. I had what I would call a twinge or mild cramping since about 4 dpIUI which still persists but the doc said it was nothing to worry about. This was my first IUI, we've been using fds (frozen donor sperm) as husband does not produce spermies. No ultrasounds or meds though. My opk's were Target brand and this time I did verify with a digital which didn't showed + a day after the target brand and the same day as IUI.

    Well, I think that's everything!Don't give up! It can happen!

    Ha, Lisa! You POAS way early! I'm excited for you--2200 is a HUGE number!

    I had my 3rd beta today (I actually wasn't supposed to get a 3rd, but I was so freaked out they let me come in).

    Beta: 580!

    So, beta 1: 172, beta 2: 317, beta 3: 580

    Not perfectly doubled, but the doc says they are good numbers. Now on to the tortuous wait for next friday's u/s. I know the chances of ectopic are slim, but it is still something that panics me a lot.

    Ladies, sounds like everyone is doing very well! Elle, I can't WAIT for your beta!
    Erin, when is your tentative ER?
