Morning Ladies! I love that we have so many girls going at this close together! Rainbows for everyone!

Re the tea, CCRM says no caffeine at all starting 3 months prior to IVf through atleast the 1st tri. He said small amount of caffeine after this is ok but if you can continue to be caffeine free throughout pregnancy that would be ideal. DH asked "Does this include cholcoate?". I looked at them both with a look of panic and DR G replied with a "yes". All I could hear in my head was "Noooooooooooo". He also said to stay away from green, white, and black tea. This is hard since I am a coffee/tea drinker so he suggested that I try Celestial Seasoning's Bangel Spice Tea with a little milk and sugar. Its pretty tasty and has been doing the trick for me so far.

Amy - my mouth dropped open when you just said no caffeine at all, I really like my green tea in the morning. I do love the celestial seasonings bengal spice tea though so I guess I will stock up on that. Hopefully I can order it online because the stores have been out of it here for a while.

oh man. Ugh - I just posted this in another thread but I feel so confused when it comes to this. "live life as you do right now, don't worry about it!" vs "drop all caffeine, alcohol, chocolate 3 months before you even plan on conceiving". Madness! I have 2 cups of green tea in the morning and I swear it's helped with ewcm and O'ing earlier.
boy oh boy...

I totally felt the same way as you girls. I figured for me, I tried the "Im going to just relax and let it be" and did I wanted (in moderation ofcourse) and it didnt work. I just figured now that we are pouring everything we have into this and with CCRM's stats, I guess Ill listen to what they say.... sigh. It was VERY hard for me as I love love love coffee and to not be able to even have decaf??? Cut off an arm why dont you! (sorry a little dramatic hehe) I just keep telling myself "It will be worth it for a little healthy bub".

He said the stay away from most teas like the raspberry teas and what not. As he was going down the list I mustve had a glazed look on my face because thats when he said "I think that you will really like the Bengal Spice Tea" so I did. If you need me to get some for you here and ship it to you, PM me and let me know.

Amy - you are so sweet to offer to mail tea. I finally found some, yay! I seriously love this stuff.

So my Dr. scheduled me for an endo scratch which is supposed to help with implantation. Everything I have read has said it's supposed to be done around CD21 the cycle before ET. He has me scheduled for around CD 21 this month. We weren't planning on doing ER until June and then I thought ET around July so I am super confused. I'm going to call my nurse today just to make sure we are all on the same schedule. She also mentioned sending in a RX to my pharmacy yesterday, so I'm not sure what that is for (antibiotics or BCP). It's only 5:30AM here now so I will call when they open. Sorry if anybody read this already in my journal.

I've never had a endo scratch...wondering if my doc will be doing one. My appointment for ultrasound and doctor visit has finally arrived. It is tomorrow! Can't wait to have more information!

Im curious about the endo scratch since I was told I will be having a biopsy (I think that's going to be the same thing) with my FET.

Just got news this morning that my dr wants to delay trigger yet another day. Im on stim day 13 today and so worried that this will affect egg quality. I know that everyone's body is different but still has me worried. Has anyone gone through an IVF cycle prior this thier upcoming one? This is #2 for me (#1 with CCRM though).

**EDIT: I meant to say I was on Stim day 13, not 16 so I changed it above..whoops!**

Amy, Sorry you are delayed one more day, but just think lots of super ripe eggs ready for plucking.

My RE office has no idea what is going on and I'm getting frustrated. She said maybe April, maybe May but hold off on BCP which she told me to start today. Grrrr
