Lani - April 6

You know I kind of wish I didnt' get daily updates because I find myself more confused with every update.
I got my last update today before the transfer on Saturday..i won't know how they are doing until right before the transfer.

They told me that they froze 5 on day 2 because they were less vunerable then and I had 9 that are still growing but all at different stages and grades. I swear this grading system is making me crazy. My clinic uses a 0-3 grading system, 0 being the best and 3 being the worst.

As of today I had 5 that were 8 cells (2-grade 1, 3-grade 2), 2 6 cells (1-grade 2, 1 grade 3) and 2 4 cells(both grade 3)

So i have none at the best grade and only 2 at the second best grade.........so I have no idea what that means........................!

I just hope 1 or 2 make it to blast. Keep your fingers crossed.

What an emotional rollercoaster, today I feel like I could cry at the drop of a hat and don't really know why

Lani,
I can only imagine how confused you are our clinic only gave us a fertilization report we did not know what the final outcome was until transfer day. It sounds like you have some good embryos though and you should reserve judgement until Saturday a lot can happen between now and then. Did you have ICSI or traditional fertilization? Keep your chin up and make sure you take care of yourself after the transfer.
As for the bloating all of mine is almost gone and I am so happy. This waiting is not as bad as I thought it would be I have just been reading a ton to keep my mind busy.
My fingers are crossed.

Asunflower,

Kris,
Stims are going well. I have 28 follicles. They are about 14 mm right now so I think I will go for ER on Sunday or Monday. I am going this morning again for u/s. I will keep you posted. Good luck to you! The rest isd downhill. How are the progesterone shots?

 

Kris - April 7

Asunflower,
Wow you are responding so well to the stims it sounds like you have tons of good follies. Good luck with your u/s today and I hope your ER goes smoothly as well. As for me the progesterone shots are not as bad I just ice 15 minutes beforehand and I also do mine in the morning so I am moving around all day. Yesterday I had a major hormonal meltdown or at least I think that is what it is. My RE said sometimes progesterone causes this but I was just curious if you had that happen. I was really starting to think I was loosing it. Keep us updated and I have my fingers crossed for you and DH.

Wow that is a ton of follicles! I hope your u/s goes well and you can get to ER soon.

Kris
I had a minor emotional breakdown yesterday, I felt like I could cry over anything.

My hips are starting to get pretty sore from the progesterone...I wonder if I did them in the morning if it would be better, right now i am doing them at night. It doesn't really hurt that night but by the next morning it is pretty sore.....I can only imagine what it will feel like at the end........8 more to go (unless i have to stay on them even longer)

Should hear today when my transfer is...I hope i have one or 2 to put back......

Hey Everyone,
I am starting to feel really down, I had some light spotting earlier and I really feel that this cycle is going to fail. I know I need to remain positive but I just have a gut feeling it is not going to work.
Asunflower do you have any advice?

 

Lani - April 7

Kris
Stay Postive!!!! I have heard of countless women on the other forums I go on that had light spotting and had BFP'S!!!!!!!!!!! Only a few more days to wait right, Monday is your day? You had great embies, stay positive. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you.

 

Asunflower - April 7

Kris,
The spotting may actually be a god sign. Some people have said that there can be spotting when the embryo actually implants. Stay positive and think of it as a good sign! Glad to hear the shots are going well! I was very emotional through the process. How can you not be? And tehn on top of it all the meds as well! You will be fine ! Not long now! Good luck!

Everyone,
I have my ER on Sunday! I will be glad to get those follicles out! I will keep you all posted!

 

Lani - April 8

Asunflower-Good luck at your ER on Sunday, I hope they get lots and lots of good eggs.

My transfer is at 8:00am.....keep your fingers crossed that there are 1 or 2 to transfer

 

Kris - April 8

Lani and Asunflower-Thank you so much for the positive feedback I really needed it. You both have been so supportive. The brown spotting has completely stopped my RE said to pretty much ignore it unless it is red because the brown discharge can mean almost anything from the procedures to actual implantation.

Lani- Good luck with your transfer. I am cheering for you and DH. I wish I could find out Monday but I have to wait until Wednesday ugh. I hope you have very strong embies and they get nice and comfy. Keep us all updated.

Asunflower-I know you cannot wait to get those follicles out I really think it is worth feeling icky for two days just to relieve some bloating. I hope they get tons of mature eggs that fertilize! Keep us all updated.

 

Asunflower - April 8

Kris,
Thanks for the support! I will keep you posted! I can't wait to get the follicles out! Wednesday is not far off at all! It sounds like you had a very good sign for a BFP!

Lani,
Good luck today! Everything will go well I am sure! Be sure to rest! You will need it!

 

Lani - April 8

Kris
So glad you are feeling better, Wednesday isn't too far either. I have a great feeling about it for you.

Asunflower
Good luck tomorrow, I will be thinking about you

Well I had my transfer today and I did end up with 2 good blasts...there was one more that was questionable that they will keep an eye on. They had to do assisted hatching on both of mine though because they said the out wall/shell of my eggs and embryos were thicker than normal so they were afraid if they didn't do it, it might not implant. I kind of wonder if that is why I haven't gotten pg yet?

I have been on the couch ever since i got home, excpet to go pee. I plan to remain here the rest of the day today and tomorrow.

It is going to be a long week!!!!!

Lani,
Thanks for the positive vibes I am not as emotional as I was I have actually been feeling a bit queasy. I am fighting the urge to take a hpt I even went to the trouble to research the half life of hcg from the ovidrel injection to see when it would be out of my system. How is your resting going I didn't think I would make it I was always thinking of something I should be doing. When do you go in for your beta? I hope you feel ok and relax during your 2ww like that is possible.
Kris

Asunflower,
I hope your retrieval went well this morning I hope you had tons of mature eggs. I cannot remember if you are doing ICSI or not so I was wondering when you would find out about fertilization. Good luck and get some rest.

Lani,
Did you end up with OHSS? I was told I may end up with it as well since they took 28 eggs. Did you have any of the symptoms?
