I actually have an estrogen patch on since Monday! Waiting for AF to show up and we will give it another shot. My best guess is an ER around 6/5 which is my 2nd wedding anniversary. I just had surgery on Wednesday to remove a lump under my armpit that was breast tissue that wasn't supposed to be there. Expecting pathology to be negative but still annoying...

Thanks for thinking of me. I am in NY. I'm doing better this cycle but not as well as in the past. The doc today said I will probably get 3-5 mature. I think 5 is out if the question. I'm really hoping for 3.

My husband may be out of town at retrieval. Do you know if chances go down with frozen sperm? If they do he could stay if absolutely necessary.

How are things with you?

It's great that you're in NYC! Do you know when your retrieval will be? On my first cycle there, I thought I would get no more than 3 eggs and instead got 5- they were pretty scrappy with getting all those eggs . Of course, I got 3 on my successful cycle, so 3 can be great! I had very good fertilization there (100% of mature eggs both times), which may speak to the quality of the lab. As for frozen sperm, I think it can somewhat lower chances, but if he's got a high count with good quality it may not matter. Have you asked Dr. D? He's very good at answering a quick email. I've been thinking of you and hoping for a great cycle for you! Please keep us updated (as much as you are comfortable). I am doing well- not much to report from here. Wishing you well and hoping for great news from you soon!

Nice to hear from you and glad you're giving it another shot! It's funny how these IF landmarks tend to fall on/around important days in our lives. I'm sorry to hear about your lump excision- that sounds painful. I'm glad they're expecting the pathology to be negative, but as if you didn't have enough to worry about already! Ugh. I've been thinking about you and hoping things were going well. I'll be looking for your updates (when/if you feel like letting us know). Thinking of you and sending positive vibes for a great cycle!

I'm glad the surgery is behind you and I'm REALLY glad you got to take a vacation. Where did you go? I hope somewhere tropical with sun and beach! I hope you were able to kick back and relax a little. June 5 is around the corner and I'm praying for a good outcome for you. You've had a rough year with surgeries and news, I want this to be YOUR time and I'm rooting for you. Update when you are up to it. Always thinking of you.

Thank you. I'm trying to ask less questions this cycle and just rely on the docs now that I'm in NY. So I really don't know much about how I'm doing. This is a first. I asked Dr. Davis about the frozen sperm yesterday. He said with IVF the chances are the same. I feel better. Also it looks like maybe I can go past Wed. which I would prefer. I'm nervous about leaving my daughter in daycare here (although I think I found a good one). If I go Thursday my husband will be back for the retrieval.

I'm glad you have no news to report. No news is good news! Keep us updated.
