Re: Blessed with Children, Struggling for More week of December 31st

Carrie- I am so excited for you!!! That went fast didn't it??? I can't believe it is almost your transfer day!!!! Everything sounds perfect! We also transferred 2 five day embryos- only ours were frozen. I can't wait to hear more updates from you! Oh- I also wanted to say that our numbers are very similar- we ended up with 8 frozen- because we had 6 fertilize right away and 2 more later. It is so amazing t learn so much about the process- and then to get photos of the embryos before they put them back in!!! It is incredible!

Carissa-Fingers crossed for you!

Yes, once this cycle started, it felt like a roller coaster ride! Of course I do have my fingers crossed that we'll have a couple of additional late embryos & hope that Tuesday goes well. They have me doing Crinone in the morning & Estrace at night w/ aspirin & prenatals in the morning. Nobody said anything about pics of embryos; that would be so neat!

Um, I'm not really surprised b/c of the pain when I woke up in the middle, but MAN, the girly bits have been abused & it hurts just a wee bit

DP & I talked, though, & we'd be happy to donate any frozen embryos after we're "done".

ETA--love your new avi!

AF is here, feeling a bit down about it but I'm glad we decided to hold off on iui, I'm just not ready.

You poor thing- I can't imagine waking up during! I would've been terrified!

I got the photos when we did the transfer- hope you get some too

I forgot you had done Crinone before so you know all about that one I also did Estrace too. Can't wait for Tuesday!!!! Will you do bed rest?

Re: Blessed with Children, Struggling for More week of December 31st

I had to go to the doctor yesterday...the ouchiness I had been feeling got all swollen & itchy by Friday bedtime. Yep, a bad case of "fire crotch" was attributed to an allergic reaction to the surgical prep they used during the retrieval
