PDXgirl- I gave my surro some tests and will let her make that decision. I may get her to POAS at least the day of, maybe to break the news easier and not be so stressed out when the lab calls if the news is not good… cushion my fall a little??? I’m nervous to try tooo early but would be great to see a positive … I’m trying to stay positive. My surro says she feels totally normal… so who knows… Why can’t your hubby be home with you when you test? can you get up early and do it with him around sometime next week??
And if not I am happy to be around if you wanted to do it but wanted some support… just throwing that out there…
all this waiting is hard!!! I came to Bend to try and stay busy as I am off work this week… in that way I am lucky- I’m going to mountain bike and ski a little so that I am tired and can sleep- sleeping has been hard for me the past few days- my mind is just racing. I think its hard having no control of anything… ahhh
But we are going to help each other through.
Did any of you guys use DHEA? supplements? accupuncture? HGH? and if so did your docs recommend it or did you bring it up?
Sounds like a lot of us have the same follicle issue, must be a sign of aging ovaries??
Oh my DH can be home if I do a HPT, I meant if we waited until the beta test he would be at work when they call from the office in the afternoon. But thanks for the offer of support, that is very sweet of you. :flower: I did POAS today just to see if the trigger was gone and it was. So I’m thinking I’ll take one on Monday. But try not to think about it as “cushioning the fall” but getting your prayers answered! You have been through so much and we both have defied the odds to make it this far that I believe we will get our :bfp: . I mean we had 2 eggs and we made it to transfer on day 5! Those little ones are fighters. I told my little bean today to get comfy for the next 9 months!
I started taking CoQ10 and going to weekly acupuncture after my cancelled Jan IVF. If this doesn’t work I’ll probably add DHEA, but that needs 3 months to work, so not sure I want to take that much time off. I basically asked Dr. Hesla his thoughts on supplements and acupuncture and he was ok with them so I started. I did do acupuncture before and after the transfer so hoping that helps as well.
Enjoy Bend, I’m jealous you got to get away for a few days. I took the rest of the week off from work as well but since my DH is working I still have lots of time for my mind to wonder and look things up on google! Oh well, only 7 days left!
