    Hi everyone
    Boo Sush, I can see you!!! :whistle:
    Woohooo Blue, glad you kicked up your heels. Um, do you remember how much though??? Leave the ticker - I want to see if it explodes. Glad AF is here for you and you can hop back on the merry-go-round - IYKWIM.
    Welcome Leisa - yep, take a break. Summer's a great time to do that.
    Nice that you're still here Tam. Please don't go anywhere!
    Keen - thinking of you, take care.
    Trish, good luck with EPU tomorrow. Hope you end up with nice healthy eggs just eager to turn into nice healthy embies!!
    Magic - hi if you're lurking....
    How's the counting down going Bee?
    Still sniffing away madly Shazey?
    Chris, read your post - woh - now I understand your nickname, unbelievable. :?
    Hmmm, I think that's everyone.
    Had a real lazy one today. Didn't wake til 8.30. Went back to sleep at 10am for 3 hours. Up at 1 and now I feel like I need another nap. Oh, I'm not very popular at work either for taking time off. Oh well.
    Hope you're all well and taking care of yourselves.
    :luck: :luck:

    Hi Trish
    J&C made me very sleepy today and nauseous. Nah, I know it's not them. It's the Pregnyl/infinity. I don't like the 'nyl' in Pregnyl, so I added infinity.
    How are you feeling about tomorrow?

    Very anxious about egg numbers -just want 'nuff to go to blasts and get me up the duff

    I worry too much .... ](*,)

    I think we all worry too much. It's a prerequisite to get on the merry-go-round.
    I really hope you get lots of eggs, you had good follie numbers so you're on the right track.
    Please, try not to worry too much about blast transfers. If they get enough embies, they'll be able to do that. All is not lost though if you don't. Don't forget, lots and lots of bubs have been born that weren't blasts. Every IVF bub before 1995 in fact!!! That's 11 years worth!
    Otherwise, I may as well throw in the towel now!!!!
    Take care of yourself - you'll have a nice little sleep tomorrow and wake up to see a lovely number on the back of your hand.

    Thanks for reassurance Sue

    They only have sedation not a GA - so even though I was out of it most of the time my DH said I was awake - LOL I can only remember start till IV sedation hit and legs going up in stirrups - till I felt :-s the last part of OPU and they told me it was almost over

    I have had a few sudden sharp pains today -hope it wasn't my ovaries popping out eggs -didn't have it last time

    I will be out of hospital and home before you put J & C down for their morning nap - then I will put myself on the couch ( NZ word I believe) and chin wag with my friend.

    Though getting up at 5.30am or so (might need a kip myself ZZZZ) This is easy compared to your 3am - that would be tough

    You'll be just fine.
    Gee, it would be interesting for DH. Did they talk (the Dr and Scientists) about the eggs etc?
    Probably best for me to be out to it. I'd ask too many questions and annoy 'em.
    Sounds like you have the day well planned.
    Hope you find some time to tap and let us know how you go!

    Trish, I'm a bit late so EPU will be all done by the time you read this so,
    Hope all went well & there's a big number of eggs getting aquainted with DH spermies.
    Take care of yourself, I'm sure your friend will help out.
    Well done!

    Bee & Sue, sounds like you're taking good care of your bubbas

    Heather, what's your plan of action, have you started your cycle, or breaking?

    KeenI hope everything is going well for you,
    Blue,Leisa,TamandChris I hope you are all well

    Hi Girls,
    Trish - hope you're recovering well after a huge harvest!! For my last EPU I didnt have a general - but whatever it was knocked me out, I dont remember a thing. DH came in with me and apparently I started snoring!! The Dr apparently made a joke about it.
    Hi Tam - I've decided to go again this cycle. Am a little ambivalent about it though and am still wondering whether I might be better off to wait. (hmmm that sounds as though I havent made my mind up at all!! #-o )I've managed to change my scan day so it's not on the same day as an exam. So hopefully I can plan the transfer around exams too!
    Good luck with the sniffing Shaz. It will be end Nov/Dec before you know it!
    How are you doing Sue & Bee?? Are you going to beat Ali's record with the POAS?
    Hi Sush, Keen, Sheree, Chris, Leis. Hope you're all well.
    Best get back to the books.
    Take care

    Hey Blue, glad you finally get to have another go. I think it sounds like you've made up your mind. Maybe.
    How did you go Trish?
    Hi to everyone else.
    POAS. Huh? Moi? Ambivalent - that's such a good word Blue....
    Hmmmmm, plus, I only had my last Pregnyl shot on Sunday. 1500iu. I think that takes around 6 days to clear the system???
    Take care all.
    :luck: :luck:

    Melb - where my coolness isn't seen as wierdness


    not sure how quickly pregnyl leaves your system. I haven't had any experience with it myself. I have heard differing stories though, but mostly that it absorbs at about 1000iu a day, but maybe someone who's had it before can confirm that information?

    thanks sush. I've read 1000 a day on one site, 500 a day on another. So, who knows :smt102
    Some people say 4 days, some say 6, some say 10, some say 2 weeks. Hmmmmm, 2WW madness has settled I think.
