    Congrats rj85! Fingers crossed that those levels keep getting higher and higher

    AFM: Happy and sad today. Finally got the go ahead to start Orgalutran tonight as my estrogen levels are now over 400! However DH's sample from last week that we were freezing "just in case" came back with no usable sperm. So it's off to do another sample on Friday to see if we can get something as well as my first ultrasound.

    It's so frustrating that his levels fluctuate so much. I feel like I do so much to get my side of it perfect but he just has to sit on his butt and kinda spin the wheel of chance...trying to stay positive but it's really hard.

    rj85 - This is a great community you are right, we are all here to help each other out and help where we can which is amazing support especially when we can't talk to many people about what we are going through. You definitely deserve this hun, make sure you now relax and enjoy every minute, how long do you have to wait to get your first scan?

    KarmaJane - Try to stay positive hun, at least DH gets another chance for a better sample, is he taking supplements to help things? This whole journey can be so frustrating but it is all worth it! Hope all goes well with scan and second sample for your DH tomorrow x

    Heyside: Yes, hubby is on Wellman Conception. Supplement from the UK that I'd heard good things about. I'm also on their ladies supplement called Pregnacare Conception. I'm just hoping that the last sample was just bad because maybe he didn't get it all (he's overweight - which we're remedying with surgery this year - so he has a hard time getting a sample solo). I'm going along to help tomorrow. Cross all your fingers for us, ladies!

    KarmaJane - Sounds like you have everything covered with the supplements then, hope all went well today with getting a good sample.

    AFM - Mixed news at my first scan today, my lining is looking great at 8.1 already (this is usually what it measures at ovulation) so seems the oestradiol is doing its trick which is good. However I have no follies seen on the scan, obviously this is due to my lower FSH dose. My fertility specialist has made the decision he wants to see me himself for a scan on Monday and presume a decision will be made from there, hopefully my FSH can just be increased slightly.

    Heyside - Thats good that your lining is looking better. Hopefully your FS will see you on Monday and an increase in dosage will do the trick

    So i have been on the Puregon for 6 days now and i started the Orgalutran 2 days ago. Had my first bloods & scan today and my lining looks good (no idea of measurement tho) and i have 3 follies on my left and 2 on my right, which is exactly what they wanted to see (my clinic only aims for around 6 eggs max) So they think my EPU will be brought forward to Wednesday! I go in on Monday morning for more bloods & scan and depending on how they grow over the weekend, we should have a definite time for EPU.
    I'm getting a bit nervous now. So yeah i have nice big follies but what if there are no eggs in them? That happens right? Or what if they are really crappy eggs and can't be used? I have every worst case scenario going on in my head lol.

    Hope everyone is doing well xxx

    Rj- hope you're going well and sneaking in a few Nanna-naps if you need them xx

    ELM - you must be getting close? Any symptoms? When do get to test ??

    Heyside - yay about your lining, fingers crossed you just need that slight adjustment with your FSH x

    Mrs Hopeful - I'm sure I'll be feeling exactly the same when I get there. Try and stay positive Hun, have you thought about any acupuncture at all? It always makes me feel great and I've read lots of great things about it along side IVF. Anyways, just a thought I'm sure you'll get fabulous results xx

    Hello to everyone else, how are you all going?

    Heyside: Crossing fingers that they boost your injections so you get some follies happening!

    Mrs Hopeful: Sounds like everything is going to plan right now. You've got a good 5 or more chances there for the moment, just focus on that. Things can go wrong (believe me, I know) but it sounds as though your cycle is exactly where your FS wants it for now.

    AFM: Went for my scan today and was a tiny bit disappointed. I have 11 or 12 follies but not as big as they'd like. I have a 17, a 12, an 11, a 10, and all the others are 9 or smaller. Being on a higher dose than before, I was hoping for lots of big follies. But right now it looks as though I'll get about 4 eggs if I'm lucky. I'm currently crossing everything I have for the smaller follies to catch up in the next few days. Booked in for another scan on Monday.

    Also did DH's collection. Very awkward in the tiny collection room. Lol! But we got there in the end and everything was caught this time for sure. Hopefully all is well with this sample and we get a good freeze. We can call on Monday to find out if it's viable...

    So just a big waiting game for us right now...
