    Nola

    Welcome back

    The follicle numbers sound great - I am not too sure about the E2 levels but they are well within normal limits - gives them indication of how many eggs are developing and how you are responding - this early it is probably too early to say what they mean except you are on track ...
    over 12,000 they cancel at some clinics I read

    The EWCM is from the FSH injections - Gonal F - producing all that oestrogen .I had it too.



    Goodluck - not too long now before your egg pickup

    Cazz - you are a champ - hoping for you get some of blinky magic too



    Nola - Mel -got pregnant on her first IVF cycle =D>

    Hi Nola
    I can't help much with the levels - don't know much about that but am learning from Sush and Sheree (she calls herself Magic now!!!)
    I too had heaps of EWCM on my last stim cycle (Gonal-f 300). Same as Mel, hadn't seen that much for a long time. It's a good sign.
    Just want to wish you good luck with everything. I'm on day 4 of Puregon (300).

    Firstly a big congrats to amanda right now...well done honey you deserve it.. me on the other hand just peed on a stick and guess what i got a



    just knew it would be... oh well will wait until bloods on the 26th and then once that result is in will book in to see my gynie again and get the lap/hyst done... maybe a good clean out is what i am after..

    don't really feel anything at the moment.. a bit kinda numb really... i think i will have to tell DH about the test.. will make up some excuse that i thought i saw spotting...knew something wasn't right when my BB's were no longer sore... oh well round two next year sometime..

    take care leis xx

    Leis, don't go hanging up your boots just yet. We all know pee sticks are a lot like AF - inept. Get it wrong all the time. Stay positive.

    Leis, IMO a surf might not be such a good idea atm. Just walk puppy along the beach, breath in the salt air and take in the rays. Wait for your Beta before you go doing anything too energetic.

    Nola, hi sweets. I hope I can help out with some of you questions.

    Your levels will not mean much about now. It will only be an indication of how many follies you may have. This is why they also do a scan, and the cross reference of the scan and the bloods give them an idea of how far from O'ing you are.

    If you have, say, 10 follies, the clinic will be looking for your levels to hit about 5000-7000 to know that they're probably mature enough for your EPU.

    I never took note of my E2 levels in my first few cycles coz I trusted the clinic to do it all, but in later cycles, I found that I could roughly figure out how many follies I had by knowing what my levels were on any given day. But ultimately the scan of your follies is the one to pay attention to anyway.

    Also, loads of EWCM is perfectly normal and means your body is doing all the right things!

    Leis, I got a -ve hpt before a +ve beta. So did Mel. Only the beta results count. Until then, it would be a good idea to err on the side of caution. I had sashimi (raw fish) the day I got my -ve HPT. Very very bad for pg. And, man, don't I regret that indiscretion now!

    Amanda, crossing my fingers for your beta.

    love

    Nola - thanks pet and I wish you all the best too. As Trish said, this was my first IVF cycle and we got very very lucky, that's all I can say. Two transferred and one vigorous little blighter stuck.

    Leis - Just as Sushee mentioned, I got a negative HPT (two of them actually) along with disappearance of all pg symptoms so the last thing I was expecting from my BT was a good result. You just never know so try to hang in there till you have that little test. Sometimes those peesticks - even the early ones like I used - can be very wrong. No period yet is also a good sign. I had cramping and stuff like mine was about to start but it never showed. Really hoping that you get some good news next week.

    Have a peaceful weekend ladies.

    Leis - it's okay to feel down, truly. Sorry, I hope you didn't think I was trying to jolly you along or anything because I think after everything you go through in long term TTC, you've got every right to feel down from time to time. I'd be the last person to tell someone to cheer up because I would often hit the skids with monotonous regularity. Also after my experience with peesticks, I'm very wary of them too and I know how they can ruin your day.

    Thanks for asking about Apple (the bump). He/she is due on April 4. It's a shock I'm still getting over I think!

    Melbo you are my light. I am 39 in December, we are opting to have 2 embies transfered. So I am praying that 1 will also stick 2 would be just a bonus. We were suggested to have the two for the fact we would have a 15% better chance of being able to keep one. I will go with any thing at this stage.

    All the best. AND a huge huge CONGRATULATIONS....Well done.

    Just how far are you?

    Hi ladies!
    I am new to this thread but wanted to say Hi & introduce myself.

    I am currently TTC number 2 & have been for 12 months now. We have a little girl who was concieved the month before our IUI was due to start.

    I have PCOS & have been using Clomid for 6 months to ovulate. Found out yesterday that Hubby has big problems with his swimmers so looks like it will be straight on the IVF band wagon #-o looks like I will be going to Westmead IVF in Sydney, might see you there Trish!!

    I will be "listening" in to your info about IVF & wishing you all good luck!

    Thanks Skye
