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!!!!

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?

Sorry, just realized I already mentioned the 2 shots before...clearly I'm very preoccupied with this, or my memory just stinks!!

Retrieval was not so bad. Just make sure they give you nausea medication. I puked a lot after my first retrieval but felt fine when they gave me Zofran with my second. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!

Did they think any of the 9 would catch up? Either way, it just takes 1!!!

My baseline was fine. They didn't do an antral follicle count but, I guess it doesn't matter as long as I'm suppressed. No cysts or anything, so I'm good to go for Friday. Went over my meds today...so many shots this time. I have always done follistim once a day but they want me to do twice a day. Although I have to say, I would do 20 shots a day if it would help!!!!

I know that we always want more eggs to work with, but I do know of more than one case where only one or two eggs were retrieved that were successful. Good luck!!! Hope some of the smaller ones get in gear and give you more than you expect.

No worries, this is just the beginning! Plenty of time for those follies to grow. I am getting excited. Baseline Tuesday. Got big box of meds yesterday. I just want to get started again...the waiting kills me!
