Quoting [Mrs. C]:" I just got the long awaited call from RE's office! Out of the 19 eggs retrieved and mixed with DH's ... [snip!] ... they grow overnight and make the decision in the morning if we will transfer tomorrow afternoon or Wednesday. Almost there! :D"

Good news! Had my appointment this morning. My sad little 1.2cm follicle I had on Friday had grown to 1.96cm this morning! :shock: Unfortunately, hubby was not able to, ahem, perform this morning so we didn't get to do the PCT. We went ahead and triggered and we will attempt PCT again in the morning. If either we aren't able to do the PCT in the morning, or if the results aren't good we will be IUI on Wednesday. **Fingers crossed for lots of hearty, early morning spermies!!!**



As for my estradiol levels I was panicking about... I asked the NP this morning. She said that estradiol levels don't elevate on Femara the same way they do with clomid and other follicle stimulating meds. She said when they began using Femara, tons of cycles were cancelled due to low estradiol levels. They soon realized that it didn't make a difference in the Femara cycles. So, long story short, I'm good. :D

Why do you need IVF?



Have you tried injections?

Is the Clearblue Fertility Monitor worth the money, for someone with PCOS?

I'm not very familiar with this. What all does it measure?

We got a credit card with 0% interest for one year with our first IVF cycle and then used that year to pay it off. That might be a consideration.
