I really feel like ****. Went for retreival and woke up to find that follicule that they drained did not contain an egg - it was empty follicule! Can you believe it... RE said that it might be side effects from previous stimulation. I was so angry and sad at the same time. I think I am going to need to take a month break to recover emotionaly. This is just too much. As for acupuncture - I do regular sessions every two weeks and it is now about 7 months.I will see him on Wed - he also does moxibastion, laser and colour therapy in the same session. How is your acupuncture going?

Hey Lady ~ how are you ~ thinking of you since you'll be starting right before me ~ have been going to Acupuncture and enjoying it ~ she's been really working on my back and legs too which helps tremendously ~ it's weird how they can tell what's going on with you by holding onto your wrists before each session ~ she said I have liver/bladder problems that could be preventing me from getting pregnant so she's concentrating on that too ~ has been trying to get me to do cupping, but I'm not quite comfortable to be walking around with big circles on my back for a few++ days.....you..??..

Hi Lisa, I am glad to hear that you are looking foward to starting IVF. It sounds like you are a bit hormonal...  but I imagine "the english thing" is also sometimes in the way. And I keep forgeting to tell that your daughter looks so cute and the photo of you two is lovely.
I am still very up -down. It is probably still side-effects of all hormons from previous cycle. I am scared if RE will get that one precious egg tomorrow. And even more scared of the days after retreival and if I will again have failed transfer. But I need to take one step at the time...

i went through ivf in 05 and unfortunately it didnt take,, but  i know lots that succeed at it... just really prepare yourself.. its tough and very emotional.. i have had 4 m/c in the past two years since my tubal reversal in 06... for me the ivf failure was so much more devastating than the m/c////// i wish you the best of luck..
p.s. arent the suppositories just a blast.. i was on 2x per day post ovulation then 4x per day post +hpt... its all so troublesome to have it not work out.. but we will all do what we can to make additions to our family.........
good luck in june........

Hi Lisa, miracles happen so I will hope for one on Monday for you. Let me know what happens.
It seems from response that I am getting most ladies do not support idea of natural cycle and several suggested that I should  do donor eggs and not waste my money and time.  But I really don't feel ready for that option. The embryologist on the web that I sent a question did not seem at all positive about natural cycle IVF and using my own eggs. All that makes me even more appreciate my RE encouraging attitude and not repeating statistics.

Hey Lisa...

How are you doing? I was checking out congrats to Meli and saw a note from you about using progestrone. If I recall, I thought you said something about trying naturally b-4 IVF. At any rate, I saw where you said that you were using progestrone suppositories. Are you using while trying to conceive naturally? I'd appreciate any info you have about this. I am scheduled for my FET on June 24th, but have heard about using progestrone prior to ttc. I hope all is well with you.

Cheers~

Hi Lisa, my transfer was canceled today. The embryo that was developing slowly did not reach to blastocyst stage. I am seeing RE on Friday to see where from here. I am feeling very sad and negative today. I just posted a letter and  I am hoping to hear if anyone else had this situation but managed to get transfer of blasto stage in the next cycle. That would help me to pick myslef up and continue. How is your progress? Are you starting with stimulation at the end of June?

Hi Lisa thanks for your note. I am crazy with worry. This morning they told me that in fact out of two eggs that fertilised one made it to blastocyst but is abnormal and not ok for transfer but the other one that is slow is now 8 cells on day 5 - so they decided to leave it in incubator for another 24 hours and see what happens. Again tomorrow morning I must phone at 9 am to see if that embryo reached blastocyst and if it will be ok for transfer. The saga continues...I am exausted from waiting. How are you doing?

Hi Lisa, I get from your note that you are not feeling well. Did something happen to make you feelso hopePlease don't give up. There are so many of us over 40 that are trying and hoping and so many that did get preganant. So have a good cry and complain but don't give up. Please let me know how is your process? Have you started with stimulation?
I got news that my embryo has divided to 4 cells but apparently it is slow development and IVF Lab told me that they expect 6 cells division by day three. Anyhow, for 48 hours it goes to incubator and I wont know until Tuesday at 9 am if my embryo will be ok to transfer on Tuesday. This waiting is so hard. I hope today is better day for you.

Hi Lisa I just heard this morning that one egg did not develop further and one egg is in stage 2. I am not sure what it means but it did not sound very good. The lab technician said that she will let me know tomorrow how my egg is doing. I am so anxious now that I will have no egg for tranfer. I don't know if stage two is a grade that is normal for second day or does it mean that my egg is slow and not good quality. I am only having transfer on day five so that one egg need to make it for next few days. This is so difficult and anxiety provoking. What was your experience with grading of eggs?

Hi Lisa I had acupuncture every two weeks for six months and he also did colour and laser therapy. I really think it has made huge difference. Just make sure that you find acupuncturist that has speciality in fertilisation and IVF. I am seeing my acupuncturist a day before my transfer. I just got news today from IVf lab that two out of four aggs did fertilised - now I need to wait for day five and I hope both eggs will make it to Tuesday.

Hi Lisa I am not sure about different tests you are mentioning and which one was done. I assume that once they retrive eggs we will see what quality eggs are.

Thank you for everything!  It REALLY means alot ~ went onto the websites this morning and emailed both of them ~ hope they get back to me ~ DH thinks I'll be wasting my time, but would rather give it one LAST ditch effort to have MY OWN DNA than someone else's ~ did they try and drum into your head about the possibility of deformities, etc that could happen..??..~
