Hi everyone!! I go for my baseline scan and blood work on Thursday ^scared^, I hope I won't have any cysts this time! Anyway if all goes well on Thursday, I will start stimulating this Friday night! Hope everyone is doing OK!! I am updating the list and adding SaraM who had her egg collection today. I invited her over here and I hope she comes over soon to chat.

Bluey, it was great to hear from you! Sounds like your treatment is going well, pretty soon you'll be stimulating!! You must be very excited!!

Lacy, You're up late, you should be ^sleepy^ or are you in America like me? Kimric was kind enough to start us a new thread over here because the other was too long, but that is why you can't post over there, this is our new home! Great to hear your stimulation is going well! Sorry to hear about the side effects. It is suppose to make you feel terrible ^puke^ that is how you know it is working! ^chuckle^

Samm, Best of Luck for your scan tomorrow!! Sounds like your IUI is not far off!!

Kimmy and Maureen, Hope all went well for your scans today!! How exciting!! When are your EC dates?

QueenVic, Kerry, Trish, Jody,and Vicks, How are you girls doing? Wishing you all the best!!

Carrie, i am still jealous about your close encouter with Robbie but I watched him on videotape last night to make myself feel better!! Sounds like you will be right behind me in your treatment timing, I am already freaking out ^spin^!!! Best of Luck!!

Hope I didn't miss anyone but if I did I am sorry, there is soo many of us now ^gossip^. But it is great because everyone is so supportive, we can't help but get a ton of BFPs ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^this cycle!!!

Everyone else, keep sniffing, stabbing and crabbing!.
Best of Luck!! Love, Dixie :-* :-* :-* ^group^ :-* :-*

Hi Girls ^spin^

Dixie - you're so organised, I don't know how you keep track of everyone!! Good luck for thursday, we'll be sending you lots of ^reiki^

Lacy - Everything seems to be going according to plan with you. My god you're on lots of meds! :eek: :eek: Best of luck with the scan.

Bluey - Are you drinking the taps dry? ^vampblood^ The symptoms are a nightmare, but worth it if you get that BFP!! Unfortunately we were unlucky last time in spite of our 21 eggs, but hopefully this time will be different.

Bev H - You still around? Still got everything crossed for those 3 little snugglers :-*:-*

Our clinic confirmed yesterday that we can start stimming today, as our egg recipient has caught up ^thumbsup^ so now looking forward to the extra bruises :-\ We're on 150ml stab of gonal f for the stimming, plus the 0.5 suprecur. My legs will be hating me by the weekend ^furious^ We have our next scan on Monday to see how the follies are progressing. We had lots there ready and waiting last time, so hopefully we'll get a good crop of eggs like last time. Not looking forward to the constant drinking either, but gotta do it to try to avoid another bout of OHSS ^shocked^ If all goes well we should be having our EC about the 20th August ^scared^ Then the stress REALLY starts!!

I must be mad as I'm currently trying for promotion at work as well, as if I didn't have enough to worry about!! But after last time I swore I wouldn't plan anything around a pregnancy again, as it was so disappointing when it didn't happen :'(

Well, I should go as I start work at 1230 and I've got loads to do!

Good luck to everyone - we're getting closer girls!! ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Hi girls - well I went for follow up scan yesterday and I've to go back again tomorrow. I have two at 16mm, four at 14mm and a few smaller ones. Considering I only have one ovary, the nurse said that it was very good. Hopefully by tomorrow they'll be the size they're looking for and if so, might have ec on Thursday or maybe Friday. I'm trying just to have an open mind because I was sure it was going to be Wednesday so I'll just wait and see what they say.

Good luck Kimmy for Thursday for ec - I might be joining you.

Dixie - good luck for your scan on Thursday.

Best wishes to everyone at whatever stage you're at. Let's hope this is a good month.

Take Care

Good luck to everybody else

Because I had to do injections twice today cos first time didnt go in so I had to do it again!! i was crying!!

My mam assured me that I am worrying over nothing and to try and relax a bit more!!

I drink loads of water cant even remember how many water I had all day!!! so thirsty!!!

Maureen - All the best for Thursday!!!

And girls hope you are all well with stabbing, sniffing etc!!!

Hi

Bluey -i know how you feel, i just had to have my last injection for ovulation induction- puregon, but bacause needles so small i had to mix two powders with one water and try drawing it up in one needle with no air bubbles! :'(It took over half an hour i was crying, dh was getting frustrated and it ^censored^ hurt like hell!

Now i'm paranoid that we did it wrong didnt get all the drugs and We're going to fail!

Sorry to waffle - i'm off to bed now to try and sleep with a dead leg!

Love Kim xxxxx

Still upset now, this means so much to us as i'm sure it does to everyone else here.

Hey Bluey and Kimmy, Cheer up guys!! You both doing beautifully! Don't worry, you guys did the injections just fine. Being a research scientist, I have a little background knowledge about the drug treatment process. Anyway, the doses of drugs they have you taking for downregulation, stimulation, and for the oocyte maturation (Puregon) are determined such that they allow for small deviations of dose. You should try to be as accurate as possible, however it will not affect your treatment if there are small deviations. So don't worry, if you have small tiny air bubbles they won't change your dose enough to matter. I know it is hard not to get upset, because we all want our treatments to work and having children means so much to us. Anyway, you are both doing great!! So don't worry.

Kimmy, Best of Luck on Thursday for your egg collection!!!

Lots of Love to everyone, Dixie :-* :-*

Hi everyone

Had another scan yesterday and I am nearly ready. I have tested this morning but nothing. If no line appears tomorrow, I have to go in the afternoon for an injection to make it happen and they will do the IUI on Friday. They said that this sometimes happens with clomid.

Can anyone give me any advise I am soe mixed upp and confused. A few weeks ago the treatment was simple and straight forward and now I am having to have loads of time off work and they say drugs, injections, what's next.
