Okay, seriously Heidi, that is AMAZING!!! I have a friend who was 39 and did this and you got more eggs than she did! Holy cow. I'm sure a lot of this is genetic, but was there anything in particular you did to prepare your body for such a great response? I am so excited for you!!! I would love to know any tips, secrets, etc. that you have to share! My cycle was a bust, so I think we may try one more time with a different protocol (sans bc pills). I am so anxious to see your continued reports! With all of those eggies, you are gonna have a baby plus frosties for later on! Woot woot!

WARNING - VERY LONG!

Thanks you all so much, I really appreciate having someone to share this all with (absolutely no one knows but you guys, my hubby and the clinic)!

My RE was off today so his colleague did my transfer.

Ohhhhhh, Heidi! I LOVE it!! I am so excited for you. This truly is amazing. I can't believe you were told you had a 5% chance and then look at you now! You give me hope. Next cycle I'm cutting out the dark chocolate, not jogging, and sitting on my tooshie. Maybe that will help. I pray I have a response that's even half of what you had.

Heidi,

Wishing you all the very BEST! Your odds are very good as with my IVF, I think I was given 10% and with my IUI's it was 5-10%.

With 3 embies in there, things are well in your favor! The clinic I go to won't do IUI or IVF w/own eggs on women over age 45. Whatever, right!

Take it easy and I can't wait to hear your updates. Let us know how many embies they were able to 'ice'? Not that it matters because I know this is going to work for you:)

THAT IS AWESOME Heidi!!! THANK YOU for saying that to your Dr.!!!!!!!! I agree! There is WAY too much negativity shown to us AMA (I hate that term by the way!) women! I am so very lucky to have found the RE I did as well, he is awesome and never once gave us a doom and gloom statistical argument against us just wanting to do clomid and natural bding, I got pregnant last year after just 2 months of unprotected sex, I think I am ok there, I just needed help figuring out what was wrong with the other parts (hormones, lining, etc.) of my body so I can keep the next one and he found it and fixed it and here we go, took my first clomid pill today!! =) I can't wait for your first u/s, I wouldn't be surprised if there are 3 sticky beans in there!! Are you going to have beta's drawn? Sorry if you said and I missed it! Please keep us posted!! =)


P.S. that was the BEST book I have read in a long time!! I loved reading every word! =)
