Hello ladies,

What are you doing leading up to your cycle? I have to wait a couple AF's after a chemical pregnancy. Which is fine because I would like to lower my BMI by 25 lbs.

Elizabeth: What a rollercoaster! I hope his upcoming appointment is good and you can proceed as scheduled. I'm sure your DH isn't too happy but keep reminding him that you are doing most of the work here!

Christy - Yeah about your TSH numbers!!

Elizabeth - So sorry you guys are having all this happen last minute. It's got to be super frustrating! I really hope your cycle doesn't get pushed back!

AFM - Nothing new to report. Just waiting on October 16 to start Lupron.

This wait is killing me!!! Two weeks til I can call in for my Day One! Then I have to wait for a LH surge to start meds! Then I have another period to start Stims! This wait never ends!

How is everyone holding up? I'm so scared for disappointment again.

Sorry Shel. I'm a mix right now given the situation. I have still have days where I am like 'what am I doing spending all this money for not a sure thing?!' I feel like its gambling which I never do. Granted the odds are way better than the slots or lottery but lots of risk too.

I am just really hoping Wednesday goes well. I hope I know THAT day whether or not we are proceeding. I kind of wish I could go with DH but I really should save what little sick and vacation I have left. I currently have 3.5 vacation days and 2.5 sick days (though I think I get another 2.5 today, we get 2.5 every 4 months and I think its been 4 months). I wish I had more. I also think it sucks I have to use vacation for medical stuff. All my previous vacation time has been used for either my husband's illness, my mother's illness or my stepfather's funeral (or my birthday, I always take my birthday off) in the past 3 years. For once I'd actually like to go on vacation with my vacation. lol Oh well, some year.

I hope the next few weeks go fast for all of us! Seems like we all start meds around the 14th - 18th ish! :)

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!!!!

The wait does suck. I have 30 more days of BCP then I start my good drugs. I am excited yet nervous since this isn't a guarantee. Don't we all wish that it were? I am 100% ready to go which I am thrilled about. My pap results came back on Friday normal which is good. That would have really upset me if I had to retake the pap. Now I just need to order the medicine which I am going to do on Monday.

I guess we all twiddle our thumbs for a bit...........

Great idea Jamie! :)

I'm still on my roller coaster (had a couple cork screws yesterday) but since its just more of the same stuff I haven't felt the need to rehash it here.

Hopefully tomorrow I will get good news or at least definite news so I know one way or another if this cycle is a go. :P

Good luck everyone!!!

Jamie: Thanks for getting the chart going. I have been reading older posts (past cycle buddies) and it is nice to have the chart for reference. It really seems real now that we are on the chart. :smileyhappy:

I am just waiting for my Oct 11th appointment to talk with RE and have my IVF class. My appt was moved up a day due to scheduling which I don't mind. I am going to order the meds today.

My sinuses have been acting up which cause headache, teeth pain and ear pain. I called the pharmacist to see if I could take Sudafed with the meds I am on and he said NO. I guess Sudafed can affect TSH levels and I sure don't want them to increase now that I have them where they should be. I am working with a doctor so hopefully my sinuses will be clear before IVF.

Elizabeth: Good luck today. I hope you hear good news and you can proceed as scheduled.

Good luck today, Elizabeth!

I hope you are feeling better, Christy! I had a cold a couple of weeks ago and it was awful.

Today I'm feeling so nervous about IVF!!! Somedays I'm so positive and others I just feel negative. I'm sure it will pass but I think I just want to hurry up and get it done! I need a hobby right now.
