Still on lupron, waiting for AF so I can start stims! I'm getting soooo excited, I really think this could be the one! We are doing ZIFT this time. Anyone else starting stims soon?


Juniper - October 11

How is everyone doing? I am on day...6 of my stims. They just increased my dosage to 450 units of follistim per day and 15 units (same) of low-dose HCG. That HCG burns when it goes in!

juniper that is exciting!! ;D

I go off bc on saturday then wait for AF so sometime next week I will be starting - GOOD LUCK!!!

I started my Lupron on 10/13/05. They have me taking it for 10-12 days depending on when I start my period. I am very nervous, excited and scared all at the same time. We had our Mock ET on 10/10/05. I'm guessing somewhere between 11/4/05 and 11/8/05 will be the actual ET.

Hi ladies,
I am having trouble logging on to make posts. It looks like everyone is progressing nicely. Just to up date, I am on my 5th day of stims. I am on 350 mg flistim. 10 units microdose ovidrel. 1mg dex., vitamins and asprin. I allways seem to respond fairly well to stims. I's my old eggs that are not viable. This will be our last try. I just hope for the best. take care, babydust !!

Hi again,
Juniper- have you gone to retreval yet? How did it go?


Juniper - October 17

Hi Laura & the rest of you ladies! I had retrieval this morning and they got 7 eggs- more than I expected since yesterday morning I only had 5 follicles. Things can happen overnight! It was cake, I was out then awake and done. It only took 10 minutes. I pray they all fertilize. I came home and slept for 6 hours.

How is everyone else?

Let me know how the stim makes you feel. How long did you take lupron? My fingers are crossed.... Desiree

Hi Ladies,
Juniper- how many embryo's do you have?

Chrisy- Good. Thanks for asking.

Today is day 10 of Stims. They have started me on antagon (prevent ovulation) for last 5 days. With the start of antagon, they increase the follostem to 400 and microdose ovidrel to 15 units. I have had an ultrasound 6 out of 10 days, estradiol 8 out of 10 days. Yesterdays estradiol was 1785 and I had 15 follicals >10mm. 7 out 15 follicals were > 16mm. So far it appears slightly better then my last cycle. I will probalpy be given the big HCG inj. Sun or Mon with retreval on Tuesday or Wensday.

Babydust to everyone! Keep in touch!


Juniper - October 23

I had one embryo make it to transfer. I am not hopeful, it was only a four-cell. I think if this cycle fails I will have to take care of my endo surgically again. Ugh.

Sounds like you have lots of eggs awaiting!


christina - October 25

FYI I changed my posted name from chrisy to shane007 - there was another chrisy/christy and I was getting confused :)
