amy Iím so sorry about the chemical and the cancelled cycle. This process just takes so much out of us, physically and emotionally. Iím glad to hear that your doctor says the extras donít really amount to much, itís so easy to start buckling under the pressure of what weíre ďsupposedĒ to be doing, and once you start googling and finding more and more things that different people have done or taken...oof. Do you know when your next FET will be?

Hi Ladies!

Babylights- that is so great you are starting! How long does the estrogen priming take? I haven't done that process yet. Good luck!

Steph-I hope you don't get OHSS! Keep a positive outlook! They have ways of dealing with it, and it appears treatment is much more understood now. Keep us updated!

Amy-Thanks for your support!

So clinic called early this am...kinda took me off guard. I don't know why but I had totally forgot they were calling today. Looks like 10 eggs fertilized! I'm so excited!!! The nurse was excited for me too, which was so sweet. (I am usually getting not so good news from her...so it's nice she is my cheerleader). Now they just have to make it to Sunday! I'm feeling so blessed. God is good.
Thanks for your support ladies! Next update on Friday!
KK

Steph - I hope you don't get OHSS. But like I was telling kk, if you do get it and you freeze all, it'll be over quickly enough that it won't be the worst thing in the world. Most of the scary OHSS stuff happens to people who didn't freeze, and are pregnant with it. Just prepare yourself to maybe need a few extra days off from work and life after your retrieval if necessary.

Babylights - Yeah, google is trouble. I don't know how to stop googling, but at least I'm getting better at not following every bit of advice I find there. My next FET will HOPEFULLY be in January. My clinic is relatively small and only does FET's on certain days of the year, every other month. So my fingers are crossed that I'll get my period in time to start the process for the January date. If not, I might need to wait until summer. I'm a teacher and Spring is just so busy that I can't imagine getting through it while maybe not feeling great (physically and/or emotionally)... so as much as I want to get this show on the road, I think I'd be better off waiting until I have a couple of months off from work. But, plan A, January.

Kk - That is so great!!! I have a good feeling about this cycle for you!!

Hey steph! I only got 6 eggs but I have a short torso so it felt like I had OHSS so I really really hope you donít get it! But like the other ladies have said, if you have to freeze all it will be okay. My clinic actually prefers to do FETs to give your body a chance to calm down from all the hormones before transfer. Good luck!

kk that is amazing news!!! I have everything crossed for you, itís looking so good for you!!!!

amy Iím hoping you get a January transfer, weíll be transfer buddies!

Hi ladies!

Update yesterday: All eggs (10) are still going strong! 6 are grade 3, 8 cell; and 4 are grade 2, 2 8 cell, 1 >8 cell, and 1 7 cell. We will transfer tomorrow! So happy!
Last month at this point we only had 2/6 that were 8 cell, the rest were 1-7 cell and 3-4 cell. This is a total night and day from last month. It is amazing what a different month and ICSI can do. Not sure if it was the ICSI plus a different egg/sperm sample, or just ICSI. Either way, we are stoked.
No s/s of OHSS either. Very mild bloating, but it is WAY less than last month and I did not have OHSS per ultrasound then. Also, ultrasound on retrieval showed no signs either. I think we are in the clear, thank God!

How is everyone else doing??

-KK

Transfer went well today! Tx 1- top grade blast. 3 frozen and 6 more awaiting possible freeze tomorrow. This tx was night and day from last month, very smooth and easy. Now the count down begins again!

Amy-They chose to tx one today. Not sure why, but I didn't push the issue. I would rather just one kiddo anyway. We are moving next summer and two would be a challenge.

Hi Ladies,

I am currently in the TWW from my 3rd IVF cycle and looking for some buddies to help pass the time. This is my 3rd cycle we're hoping to be blessed with our second bundle of joy!
