It's awesome, there's just some extra adjusting to do and there are some awesome perks!!! ...

    Don't know if that made it any clearer actually - and I'm supposed to be good with words (eye roll) - I might give up now ... ������
    Hugs Vixjc - I could hear the emotion in your previous post and this is a damn serious road to take. For us as Mummas and the kids to come! You are very good with words, and again - come across as wise, balanced and kind. No misery vibes here! X

    AFM hard to say - lining a bit more than 4mm and I think I have one 12mm and 4 or 5 at 5-6mm but as usual my FS zipped through without really measuring anything that closely. So looks similar to cycle 2 which is a relief but it all comes down to quality not quantity so I'm still mentally very much in neutral! I'm back for another scan on Thursday - not with FS so I will get a report!!
    GOOD LUCK! Fx for you and those eggies. C'mon golden egg!!!!!

I’m excited but also nervous, which I have no doubt is natural.

    Anyway, after lurking for so long I wanted to pop up and say hi. You’re an inspirational bunch of ladies and I follow this thread every day to see how you are all going.
    Hi Pen!

    Hmm nurse at monash wants me to hold off on orgalutran this morning until she's run it past a doctor.. Not from a toxicology perspective but just in terms of how it may affect my cycle. I'm skipping growth hormone today. But just goes to show how vague I am right now, jeepers what a day. Hope today is a better one. Have to go into work now and apologize to the people sitting around waiting for me in yesterday's meeting.

    Kelly sounds like a shocker, but it happens I'm sure if you come up with an excuse that you were unwell work and your boss will understand. Don't let it stress you so your follies will continue to grow.
    Biscotti OMG you are so strong to move forward after your terrible loss those years ago I really am hoping and praying that you have success.

    Scuba, Jem, Vix, BiB, sparrow, Penny how are you all doing ?

    Angela has a bit of nappy rash the poor bugger but it seems to be bothering me more than her.

    How did your day end up @Kelly70 - still scanning tomorrow?

    AFM i had a weird sharp pain today for about an hour - that was a new one. Not like the twinges, an actual pain. Makes me nervous but scanning in the morning. I'd be surprised if EPU is earlier than Tuesday - Thursday next week. My follies have been on the slower side in the past. About 1.5mm per day and they slow down even more when they get above 18mm. But then again I have no idea if there is an actual method to this madness.

    Gosh @Jem70, we could be going to EPU at the same time. A sharp pain for an hour is odd, that would have gotten my attention too! My day was fine in the end - I'm presenting my piece of work next week instead. I had quite a productive day despite still feeling like *** all day - I still feel ****e tonight, this is like having a hangover every day for weeks on end. I'm looking forward to this cycle coming to an end, for better or for worse, and pray the follies have both come along tomorrow. Looking fwd to my scan this time, oddly.
