So I am back from a lovely tropical break where I was fortunate enough to experience a earthquake, a power outage, then torrential rain which brought mudslides and flash flooding. It got better- after we left that particular island and flew to a diffferent one. And we can now joke that it was earth moving... and a bit of a rocky start to the trip.

So back to the business of being again. We are on day 5 of the meds. This time it is a bit of a different protocol. Currently I am on 3 vials of men*pur in the morning and 3 at night. They are 75s-- so that means I am taking 225 each time. No supression. Proably a good thing since I am still stinging from the over supression we did last time when they messed up my meds and were suppose to be microdosing me but had instead called in the full amount. Yeah, I know, It's going to take some time for me to be able to just let that go. Thought I had- but it is like a pea under my many mattresses-- just seems to be stuck under my skin a bit.

I have my u/s and b/w tomorrow and I ought to have an idea of how we are doing this cycle. Lots of hot flashes- so that is a bit new, and I am taking it as a good sign that something is happening. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't feeling optimistic- because I am-- first I am told that I am low responder making only 2 egg, and it is suggested I use donor eggs... then I make 7 eggs but they don't actually grow to where we need them to because I am over supressed. Imagine what I can do without all the supression- yeah I don't expect to blow out the numbers and produce a ton of eggs- I mean I am realistic, but I am hoping I do at least as well as last time with all the little guys growing nicely in unison. Is that too much to ask?

Nothing much up other than that-- my feet are freezing all the time as I adjust back to living in normal weather and I catch up on the pounds of mail that seem to be getting delivered to my door. Has anyone else noticed that Xmas seems to now start before halloween? I am getting christmas catalogs in the mail now- and it is still october. Yikes!

Here's hoping the u/s and bloodwork show nothing but good things... Fingers crossed and all that business.

Ellie! So glad to have you back! (and in one piece!) Sounds like quite the get-away...

We are cycle buddies - just that you aren't doing the suppression (you lucky dog!) I really, really hope you get some good results this time, something with a little more definity to it and making it all the way to transfer of some great embies! I will be anxiously watching for your update tomrrow for your u/s and b/w. (Mine will be Friday.)

So glad you're back, and back in the game. Will be wishing and hoping for you cycle buddy!

Good luck! It's true - this cycle is different. Glad you're feeling hopeful. And the holiday? Well... I guess it sounds *interesting*, if not entirely like what you described to us pre-vacation.

Welcome back Ellie!!
I'm hoping this protocol works for you and your eggs, and you get teh results that you need to move forward.
