I am 35 and have Endometriosis, but I don't think my age is a factor. I think he only does 2 at a time for all patients. But I could be wrong, who knows.....
He called today and said all 6 fertilized and cells are dividing properly, but that it's not likely they will all make it to Wednesday when they do the transfer...but I can hope! My ovaries are still sore, but the left one hurts more because I had 6 on that side and 3 on the right side. But I do feel much better than yesterday. Good luck with you meds. Mid-November is almost here so you will be on your way soon too.
why did your RE say that they are dividing properly but that it's not likely they will make it to Wednesday? Sorry, that seems kind of rude to "assume" beforehand. Hm.

I'm on cycle day 2. started my 1st injection this morning at 5a.m. and now it's time too rest.

keep me posted! thinking of you! (hugs)

Hi Kaimi. Aren't the injections fun? Not! I'm on my 9th day of those horrible progesterone oil shots. I hope they end soon. They reduced 2cc down to 1cc as of yesterday, so now it's only half the pain, lol. I guess the doctor was just going off his experience that they wouldn't all make it to blastocyst at the 5 day mark. Turns out he was right since I only ended up with 3 embryos out of 6 eggs. Two implanted and one to freeze. My blood test is this Saturday Nov. 15th. I'm having some mild cramping going on, but I know that's not necessarily a symptom of beng pg, it could just be side effects from the drugs and the transfer itself. So, I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high, yet trying to be positive at the same time. I do hope it is implantation that's causing cramping though...that would sure be nice. Good luck with your injections..hope they aren't too painful for you.

I had my first butt LOL injection this morning & I didn't feel a thing. Boy, was that needle LONG tho. I guess it needs to be long to go through my extra layer of FAT. lol
Are you going to take a pregnancy test before the 15th? I will FOR SURE. I don't know how some of these women go 2 weeks without taking at least one. lol
All the best! sending +++++ thoughts.
I have a total of 3 injections now (2 IM) and 1 belly. I'm sure by the time projecterone injections rolls around my butt will be needing some ice, hot packs or whatever too numb the pain. lol

Good luck to Iphie!!!!! I'm at the end of the brutal 2ww. Actually, it's only a 10 day wait, but I am only 2 days away. I get my test on Saturday the 15th....but I'm expecting bad news. I have my blood drawn every 2 days since the trnsfr to check progesterone levels, etc. The doctor called me yesterday to inform me that my blood results yesterday indicated my HCG level was ZERO. He said to expect a negative result on Saturday because my chances of the HCG increasing to indicate pregnancy is about 10-20%. He said even this early (yesterday would be 7 days past a 5-day embryo trnsfr) that my HCG would not be zero if I was pregnant. I'm just hoping and praying that I'm in that 10-20% and that I just have a late implanter. I just really am crampy though and feel like AF is coming. I was really upset yesterday after that call. I just don't understand why the doctor had to call me 3 days before my test date and rain on my parade! That's 3 extra days of misery he put on me! I only have one frozen embryo to implant next month and after that......that's the end for me. I can't afford any additional treatment. Having Endo and being 35......my chances just won't be good without additional IVF and my husband won't adopt. **Good luck to you too Kaimi with your injections and your cycle. I hope at least one of us gets a positive result.

Julie
