    Thanks to all for your thick vibes - I am up to 7mm today!!! Won't have the b/w results until tonight, but my lining is looking good and I have 3 right-side follies over 1cm with a couple right behind, and 1 on the left over 1cm with another right behind!!! I was so disappointed with the number of antral follicles on CD3 - way off what I'd had during IUI cycles, presumably from being oversuppressed by the Lupron. Feels like I am catching up now, though. To those of you who were monitored on or around CD8, remind me how many follies and what sizes you had? I need a reality check. Thanks, girls!

    So, DH and I were talking the other night about what we're telling, when and to whom. We have a few people who know of our struggles, but only one couple (who also struggled) knows that we're now cycling. We decided to do a blog, which will allow us to update people with the info we want to share, when we're ready to share it. Pretty excited about it, actually! Just wondering how you all are handling people on this topic?

    Icurn, holy cats! July 9 will be here before we know it!!! That's my goal date for ET. Hope it's a banner day for both of us!!!!

    Mal...it took me a long time to respond and I think it was just the BCP...I haven't been on it for over 7 years. I usually O early day 11-13 and with the stims my god it was a marathon...the retrieval was not until day 21!!! I think if there is a next time I want to do it w/o going in supression..but I am praying there will be no need for a second time

    Malf, I think everyone is different. I don't understand a lot of this process, to be honest. It drives me crazy. Your follie sizes, though, sound similar to what mine were on CD 8. It's all in my blog post, I think. Again, though, different meds, different people respond, well, differently...I know I am driving myself NUTS googling my follie sizes and E2 values...try not to do that, because it WILL drive you nuts. Trust me.

    Lee Ann, I am praying there's no second time for you, too!! Interesting that it was the BCP, though. I was definitely blaming the Lupron. I will have to bear that in mind if there is a next time.

    Oh, Lisa. Apparently we need a google-aholics anonymous thread, too, b/c I've already gone NUTS looking up those numbers.

    Hugs to all!

    I am on Repronex--75 ius of it; I was on it from CD 3 to CD 11, then trigger, then IUI today.

    Malf---Big hugs, girl. I have been googling sperm counts all day. SO I feel you.

    Lisa, step away from the computer! (She says while looking up average daily growth rate of follies during medicated cycles...)

    Lee Ann, I think I may be taking a page from your book and having the endless cycle. The good news is that follies are coming on strong, but the bad news is that it's more slowly than anticipated. I'm still blaming it on having been oversuppressed, but what do I know??

    14 follies today - 1 at 15, 4 at 13, 2 at 12 and 2 at 10 with the rest under 10mm. My RE really wants 10 good ones to go in after, so here's hoping a couple of the little pipsqueaks catch up!

    Mal...I know your pain. I just hope he does not wait too long.

    Lisa...I hope your trigger went well!! I may be reaching out to you for an RE recommendation...I just move to Miami and I will not be going back up for monitoring with mine in JAX. How long was your wait to get in?

    Hi girls! I have a quick Clomid question. I started my first cycle of C last month and I'm due to start again on Thursday for my second cycle. The thing is that myself and DH have decided not to try so hard the next two months because I'm starting a new job and need to focus on that for a while and for benefit reasons. Now, is it ok to have been on one round of C and now stopping for 2 months and then starting again? I still have 2 months presciptions. Will this in any way mess up my cycle? On C last month was the first time I had a 28 period!!!Whoo-hoo for C!!

    Thanks, Lee Ann. I just want to say "ARE WE THERE YET!?!??!?!?!?!"

    I cannot believe you are testing this weekend! It will be here before we know it. Sending loads and loads of BFP vibes your way!

    Icurn, where you been? How are you holding up? And are you going to cave and POAS? Enquiring minds want to know!

    Hi Girls! I've been away for ages but wanted to check in to wish you all well. Sending prayers and hugs and wishes and sticky dust and all good baby making vibes to each one of you!

    My DH and I are still in limbo because managed care takes forever to do anything, but hopefully things will start to get on track shortly.

    Oh trust me~I am here. I sat at work last night and read this entire thread! They aren't letting me do much at work~not that I am complaining at all!!!!!!!

    I have been feeling good. I am getting a cold sore, and my face is breaking out~hormones I am sure. I have been cramping~so of course I have been worried~hence why I read the entire thread AGAIN! I have been forgetful and wanting rootbeer floates (when I don't even like them) but I am trying to chalk those things up to my hormones being all wacky!

    I started Estrogen patches today~yet another protocol! I just really hope they know what they are doing!!!!!!!!! The progesterone IM's are really kicking my butt!!!!!!! (Literally)

    Malf~when do you go back?? Tomorrow??

    Isolt~almost there!!!!!!!

    You are all the best friends a girl could have!!!!!!!!

    So I talked to the nurse today, and she laid out the timing for me. Does this sound right?
    Day 3 of next cycle (probably next week) I will do a baseline ultrasound.
    Between day 6 and 13 I will do a hysteroscopy/mock transfer.
    Then the NEXT cycle (approx Aug 6) start BCP, then injections, etc--5-6 week process before retrieval and transfer.

    Which means, I start everything next week, but don't get transfer until the 2nd week of September. That seems like a long time away to me??!!
    Me: 38 DH: 30;
    After 2 ectopics (and a ruptured tube) our IVF baby Benjamin Theodore was born on 6/1/09! We are an extended BF'ing, gentle parenting family
