Helllloooo Ladies (said with a super suave voice)

I tried to actually do something today besides look up pharmacy prices for Gonal-f and
Follistim.  Took my little mutt boy Roscoe hiking for about 2 hours (he vomits the whole time in the car.. it's greeaaat)

Krita, thatnks for starting the new thread.

Maybe Heath, Jen, Lisa, Magda, Kari and time/ticking will join.

Sorry about your headache Miky....double dose of advil for you.

Got all the results of my BW from new RE:
Sad to say my FSH went up again this month which totally pisses me off b/c I have been drinking that putrified wheat grass every day like some kind of cult member.  I guess I'll keep drinking it, just in case.  It went back up to 11.. which isn't the absolute worst, but still makes me mad.. what a stupid number to have anyway.
And.. also from my BW, on what would have been 15DPO, my HCG was a 5.. so my RE definitely thinks I had a chemical.  Weird!  Never had one of those.  

It's nearing the time that I actually have to shower and clean up my mess from the weekend so DH doesn't know what a slob I am when he's gone.

I cant wait to hear from Jen tomorrow when she has her transfer.

Helen, I am totally going to give it a shot this month!  Free baby? H+E+L+L yeah!  And I'm sure DH will totally agree with me and have another month of his "I'm gonna knock you up to save money" BDing.
Have fun at Disney.. I took my niece there for a schizophrenic  4 day, every park, all you can eat, stay in a themed hotel extravaganza.  It was a nightmare, yet fun to do at the same time.  That kid got mouse ears, balloons, pizza in bed, face painting, photos with cinderella., you name it.. my sister and I don't get along so I made sure I was better than her!  HAAAAA.. I am evil!
Are you going in for your beta tomorrow?  I'm thinking super positive thoughts for you!

Milky, I do pretty ok on Lupron, except some night sweats and freaky dreams (this may be more related to the fact that I am a whack job).  I am waiting for AF, too, and then on to phase 2!

Sally, Really and truly, I wish I could have joined you this weekend.  Instead, I attended my 17 year old step daughter's school play (painful) on Friday, sent my 20 year old step daughter $500 as she is in France for school and broke (hmmm, could it be because she is traveling her arse off instead of working?), and sitting through my 22 year old step-daughter's college graduation yesterday.  To add insult to injury, I haven't heard a thanks yet, much less a "Happy Mother's Day" from one of them.  Yes, I realize I am the STEP mother, but still would be nice to be appreciated.

Oops, sorry for the rant.  Feeling sorry for myself right now.

ha-ha!  Sally, you crack me up!  Mother's day this year is sooo difficult for me.  At Disney they give flowers to all women and say Happy M's Day.  I almost told the stupid "cast member" to go fuc&k yourself.  (they don't have workers here, only cast members)
Glad you'll give it one more old-fashioned try.  Your dh sounds really motivated  :)  Hopefully you don't have to go the ivf road at all!

Krista,
sorry about ex-wife with kids factor.  That must be very painful.  I can totally relate to your frustration.  (HUG)

I'm here!! Glad you started a new thread! I feel your pain about Mothers day also. My best friend is being induced on Wednesday with her first child - we started trying at the same time last year. I can only hope that next year we will all be celebrating our Mothers day!

Gearing up for the retrieval tomorrow. Feeling pretty well and am a bit nervous about the outcome. Please say any prayers you can and think positively for me. I truly believe that all of our energy put together really helps.

Sally, your weekend sounds amazing. DH was away this weekend as well (im palm springs) so I had the house to myself. I watched really bad tv (lots of reality show reruns), knitted, and secretly played Nintendo WII...and I too believe that I am pretty bomb at the games! Too bad you don't live closer...it would have been nice to have an opponent! But the HIGHLIGHT of my weekend was at the grocery store today where Jessica SImpson was shopping right next to me!! I secretly love her and have been trying to execute the same hair color for years!! I feel like if we're gonna be friends (all of us) you should know this about me - oh, and I also secretly love Tori Spelling and Brian Austin Green (can you tell I was a 90210 junkie and a Donna and David fan?)!!

Krista, I'm sorry about the step-kids. Hang in there sister. Your day will come and I promise there will be MANY "thank-yous" and lots of recognition about what an amazing mom you are.

Helen - I continue to hope for good news for you tomorrow. Keep us posted.

Will update you all tomorrow when I get home!
XOXO

Hi JA.. I sure don't know about the Af coming 'round that early.  Not my fotrte'.. wish you the best of luck though.  :)


All you other ladies, how is everyone?  Follies being taken out? Embies growin? Transfers done?  Betas?  
I'm "au naturalle" as Helen calls it this month, so nothing exciting here except trying to weasel some free and/or cheap Gonal-f from my neighbor that just had IVF.

I want to thank everyone again for their support and positive vibes.  I guess it worked, my beta is 101 today.  My next test is in a week.

Helen,
Ok, not to be stupid or anything, but what does that mean that your beta is 101 today?  Can I jump up and down?

Good ol' AF just arrived, so I am starting part 2 of my cycle tonight (2mg tab of estrace, plus 125 mcg inj of Ganirelix).  Miky, I am hot on your trail!  Our cycles are within hours of each other...how freaky is that?!?

Jen, thinking of you today!!!

Sally, because you are going au naturalle this month, does that mean no shaving, body grooming, self-care, etc.? :-)

Krista,
they told me that at 14 dpo they expect beta (which measures your hcg level) to be around 100.  So, mine was as expected.  Low beta, e.g. 20 at 14 dpo also means positive but it's usually indicative of some problem, e.g. ectopic pregnancy, chemical pregnancy or a very early miscarriage.  Very high beta at 14 dpo (e.g. above 200) typically means multiples.  Your hcg levels (i.e. your beta) should double every 2-3 days.  When your hcg is above 1500 you can see things on the u/s.  

Glad your AF is on time.  When is your first u/s??  Wishing you many juicy follies!!

ok so i know that it was an accident BUT it still hurt!! so i mixed up my shot and DH cleaned the area and squeezed the area of skin up and poked it in, nothing different then any other night, then he pushes the syringe too fast and i jump with an ouch not expecting to get the meds pushed in so fast. well he then stops squeezing my skin hard enough and i feel him take the needle out and i jumped and he accidentally poked my opposite butt cheek hard at an angle and it instantly starts bleeding. he was apologizing over and over, i know he didnt mean to and it was kinda my fault but now im going to be hesitant and nervous tomorrow.   dinner was waiting for us, i was so scared/nervous at the moment that i had to sit down for like 10 minutes till my stomach wasnt upset anymore. now my left butt cheek hurts =(    i told him he wouldnt make a very good DR

I'm BAAACCCCKKKKK...

Retrieval went well. Ten eggs were retrieved and the docs think they look good but will call tomorrow with the report. Otherwise I'm feeling bloated (very), crampy and tired. Will update as soon as I have anything to say.

Helen - I'm FREAKING OUT because I'm so happy for you!!! You truly are an inspiration!
