    I got a call from IVF nurse this afternoon instructing me to continue doing 4 patches every other day and start progesterone shots tonight for 4 days. I go back on Monday for a endometrial biopsy. I guess I will call tomorrow to find out what this is for and why I have to do it. Has anyone ever had this done or heard of it? I think I'm going to ask the girls on the other website in the Donor Egg room. I had DH give me a shot, but I was never told about this part previously. The donor's meds are being shipped on 8/3 because she has to have them by 8/5 (I believe that is her 1st exam or her last day on BCP). Things seem to be suddenly moving along.

    Good luck to all of the ER gals & stimmers!!
    I had to have a endometrial biopsy and saline sonogram. I was stressed about them both, but seriously it(the biopsy) didn't feel much more than a pap. They said they were just making sure the lining was healthy and no infections and also it has been proven to increase your chances for conception somehow. I didn't really need any more explanation than that.

Don't count yourself out yet girl! I'm praying your 3 embryos are holding strong and healthy!!!!!

    I didn't know such a thing was possible. I do feel that if it was an option for us that they would have done it though. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. Your cycle is going so well! This is going to be a wonderful month for you!

    Hello everyone. Lots of wonderful things happening in here to so many deserving ladies!!

    Nothing new to report on me. All I can think of is if I still have three or if I have any at all. I really feel if I have anything left tomorrow they will transfer. They'll can in the morning to let us know if we need to drop everything and come down. That's really stressing me. I have my niece's birthday party tomorrow and we are riding with DH's parents. We are going to have to make up a lie to get out of going. I'm a freaking basket case! I thought I was so much tougher than this. Sorry,don't mean to be the downer of the room.

    when in doubt, pull the ole, I have diarrhea. No one will question a thing. And no one will grill you about it. They will understand you need to "stay put". Works everytime.

    Thanks! Nurse just called me back & said it was like having a pap also. They will do another u/s that day as well. I think all is going to work out great. Hate doing the progesterone shots for 4 days, but my future holds shots next month anyhow, so no biggie!

    That's wonderful news Rhonda!! With the success rate of your donor, you're BFP is right around the corner. I'm so happy for you.

    I can only pray that I am as fortunate! I am still a bit nervous about my implantation failure diagnosis and must admit I still worry that I will have a problem even with donor eggs. My u/s and blood work say otherwise, but I know that I have abnormal factors that have to be treated to prevent from my body rejecting the embryos.

    I don't think I've shared this with any of you, but my DSD is 20 and pregnant. This is a huge disappointment to me & her father & her mother. I was considering cancelling our cycle because I felt cheated that my DSD was going to have a baby the same time period as myself. Our kids will be 3 months apart in age. Too weird. DH said we are not changing our plans because of her mistake, so we are moving forward, but it's not something we want to deal with right now. I probably won't be able to fly to California when she has her baby because I'll be pregnant (and maybe even with twins) and high risk for sure due to my age & the fact that I'll be in my 3rd trimester. I am very optimistic this cycle will work, so I have to vision the near future as a new grandma and mom.

    All I know is you deserve a big for that one. Don't cancel your cycle, don't worry about it now.. cross that bridge when you come to it, right? Now what is most important is you and this cycle. Praying for you!!

    Hi ladies,

    I've been really busy so I haven't been around. I'll try to have a proper catch up soon, but for now, I just wanted to say CONGRATS on the marvelous egg retrievals and healthy embryos ladies . Good luck with your transfers!

    I'll check in again soon.

    Update: We still have 3 embryos! I worked myself into a nervous frazzle today waiting for that call! We will be doing a Monday transfer. That means a 5 day. I feel good now but come Sunday night I know I'll be right back in that boat of worry. I know God is going to take care of me,I just need to trust that! Thank all of you girls for your prayers and support,that being said,don't stop!

    Melissa~ Hope everything went great today! Get yourself a ton of rest. Make your DH wait on you hand and foot!

    Meet the kids!! Everything went well. Out of my 9 embies, they transferred these precious darlings and I only have 3 others that may or may not make it to cryopreservation. We really hope they do.

    Great to hear. They told me the longer you can wait for transfer the healthier they are and more developed obviously. So happy for you.

    We took mine day to day and they told me there wouldn't have been much difference between today vs. tomorrow, but as of today mine was 4 day transfer.
