Crinone, huh? They spared you the pleasure of the PIO (progesterone IM injection). I used Crinone for one of my iui's and didn't have any leakage at all, although some people do. 5 is great!!! For my last cycles, they called me most days with an update. Are they planning for a 3 day transfer or are they going try for a 5 day?

So exciting!! By now you should be PUPO (pregnant until proven otherwise)!!!!!

I had a disappointing day. Follicles on US but all pretty small. E2 day 4 of stims was 24. That is MUCH lower then it has ever been. The nurse said it was where they wanted it to be and no change in meds but it just seems so low. I don't know what my baseline was so maybe it was a rise? I'm just hoping when I go back on Wednesday things start perking up. I know noone likes cancellations but I really don't know if I can handle that right now. Bah...I'm going to try to relax tonight and not think about it!!!!

WorryQueen....

I am from The July 2009 Boards....The October 2009 boards...The August 2011 Boards...AND the December 2011 Boards! Aside from my IUI's...all of my IVF attempts have been successful.....(With one MC)....

And anyone on here that knows me...KNOWS I am the WORST influence when it comes to POAS!!! I have a cheerleading outfit With the Letters POAS on it! I pee, pee, pee...every cycle!!

I always had a 5dt.... But would test at 6dp5dt..... And always got a BFP!!!! I suggest...... a combo pack... First response has a standard HPT and Digital test in ONE pack.... I have used this. I also Shout from the rooftops.... 'Clearblue easy DIGITAL!!!!!"... it is Pregnant, or NOT.... no guessing.

For a 3dt...Maybe test at 7dp....I always had high beta's..but that is not everyone's case....so 7 or 8 days past..you should have a pretty good inkling if it worked!

Good Luck!!

If you are wanting to wait until the trigger would be out of your system,, that usually is out 10 days after trigger, so about day 7 or so after 3d transfer. Make sure you remember not to stress out over negative results.

Follicles slightly bigger today , E2 95. So hopefully I am just a slow responder and things will start to pick up soon. I am jealous about all of you in the 2 week wait...you are so close!! Try to keep busy and hope the time flies!!!!

Follicles bigger and estradiol up to 306!!! Phew!! Talk about a slow responder. I feel much more confident now that we will go to retrieval. They are all still smallish but there are 5-7 follicles on each side. Hoping some more join the party!! How is the wait going? Hanging in there? Did you decide whether to POAS?

Woo hoo! E2 826! Still chugging along. Largest follicle is 15 on day 11 of stims. 6 on the right, 7-8 on the left.. This is going SO SLOWLY!! Looking at retrieval on the weekend. I'm hoping slow response doesn't mean poor egg quality!!!

Any POASers out there?!?!? Awfully quiet around here!

My retrieval will be on Friday. He said there are about a dozen follicles that look promising. I am really hoping for at least 10 eggs!!!
