So sorry I have not kept up on everyone’s happenings… I am cheering all of you ladies on! πŸ™‚ 

Thank you for the condolescences. It was a difficult week but I am glad my Father-In-Law is not longer suffering. 

I am CD7 today, following AF last week (yay!). I had a pelvic ultrasound to check for any additional/new cysts. The u/s tech said my ovaries looked beautiful. She said they ignore my large cyst unless there are any dramatic changes. 

My specialist said we could start (I am not sure if she said start the Estrace or the Provera), but I let her know that I did have a three day period last week. 

She said we could start next month, unless I am in a rush (I let her know I was not in a rush, although I wanted to shout “yes!”). If I do not get a period towards the end of this month, I take the Provera, and then start the Estrace on Day 1 till an ultrasound on Day 10 to check that my lining is growing and then start Endometrin. 

My specialist prefers that I get a period naturally if possible so that there is less medication involved.

I asked some other questions I had like OB care if we get pregnant, if I can get the flu shot, as well I picked up my Estrace.

The pharmacist said the pills are very small and that I will have blue discharge (which I have already read about here πŸ™‚ ) .  Any tips for using the Estrace?

It feels like transfer is far away, but I am glad that things happened the way they did, and grateful that the retrieval is done. 

DH was born with congential adrenal hyperplasia (as an adult he was told his testing no longer showed this) so we may be referred for testing soon, although my specialist said we already have the embryos πŸ™ Hopefully things will work out here. In any case, DH and I had a discussion about fully accepting anything our child may be born with (a family friend had a baby with Down Syndrome and did not know until the baby was born).

Have a great day, ladies! πŸ™‚

hollyberry4 :  happy anniversary!  I hope you had a lovely evening.  Ours was a week ago, but we still haven’t celebrated. I ended up having to work the weekend before and then I had a terrible cold all last week and weekend. Maybe this weekend we will! 

AFM, I’m 16 days past egg retrieval and no real period. I had some spotting 12 days after that didn’t last long. Doctor’s office said to let them know later this week if there is still no real full flow period. … which there is no sign of right now. I’m annoyed that I didn’t start BCP after the spring because I feel like I just delayed us another month.  But my husband is a bit more rational than me, and said “obviously your body is doing something weird and it’s probably better we have to wait longer so it can get right. ” a

I also can’t seem to shake the nasal congestion from a cold that started 9/23 and I have a lingering cough, but I suspect that’s my asthma acting up so I started those meds again.

Hi ladies. This may be a really stupid question and it’s a bit Too Much Information but for those that have done gonal injections, is it normal to have an abundance of EWCM while taking it? I’m only on cycle day 8 (injecting gonal nightly since Saturday) so it would be too early for ovulation but I’m so paranoid I will somehow ovulate on my own and have to cancel this IVF cycle. Luckily I have blood work and ultra sound tomorrow to make sure I’m where I need to be but for some reason the mucus has thrown me for a loop.

Kabatchy2be :  Thank you! I’m so freaking nervous I can’t even describe. How are you? Have you tried the castor oil packs yet? I haven’t done many, only like 3…..I do think it helped ot move the cyst outside of my uterine lining, though πŸ™‚

BeeinBoston :  EWCM is mainly from higher/rising estrogen levels. Of course, gonal will work to produce multiple (mature, eventually) follicles and that will bring estrogen up. I had tons of EWCM during IVF, don’t worry, you won’t ovulate! FWIW, my estrogen is sky high during this FET prep I’ve been getting EWCM for like 3 weeks. Hang in there!

vanike :  Ugh, I hope you start feeling better soon! And I know we texted a bit yesterday regarding your cycle, but not all is lost! Hoping AF arrives soon or that your Dr. has a good explanation. Worst case is you take provera and induce a period on your own, just delay things a few weeks. Best case – you can do a natural FET or are still baseline and can start meds. πŸ™‚

BeverlyGeese :  Just got the castor oil pack yesterday from amazon but got home a little too late to try it out. Definitely tonight I’ll give it a whirl.

mkat37 :  Hopefully this IUI is this one and you won’t need to regroup!

hollyberry4 :  hahah! My DH has only ever done my trigger shot which was in the tush. I preferred doing the injections myself. Good luck!!

Not much to report here. Feeling fairly fine on all the FET meds. Have a lining check next week so majorly hoping it gets fluffy in the next few days.

hollyberry4 :  Happy Anniversary!! How was your celebration? Congential adrenal hyperplasia is a genetic disorder that affects the adrenal glands and the way that certain hormones are produced (cortisol). I posted in the “Pregnancy” section because I thought some may have done PGS testing and be reading there. I’m quite disappointed and how things are going, I am not sure if we have to delay transfer now. 

Back soon ladies, sorry for the quick post. I am reading and cheering along with everyone. Hope everyone’s appointments and ultrasounds go really well in the next few days. Back on soon. Have a great day, ladies! πŸ™‚

Had my first post injection ultrasound and blood test this morning. The nurse called today and said I have multiple growing follicles on each side. I really wish I remembered how big she said they were but I think I remember being told they needed to be about 14 mm in order to move onto the second injections. Tonight I start injecting ganirelix along with the gonal. Saturday I stop the  gonal and then Sunday I have my next ultrasound. She said my egg retrieval may be on Tuesday which is me and DH’s wedding anniversary. I’m excited that progress is being made!

Can anyone tell me how soon after retrieval the transfer usually happens? I have a ladies spa trip planned for Saturday the 15th and I’m thinking I should cancel it now before it’s too late.
