I'm doing accupuncture this time (first try). My friend did it on her third and only successful try...I read a study that suggesteda 50% better success rate...it can't hurt is the way I'm thinking about it.

Keep us informed on your results tomorrow...think good thoughts-every woman has different signs and symptoms-Good luck!

I really wish I would have done it this time. so when is your expected retrieval date? was your friends successful IVF a frozen transfer or a fresh transfer? I am still doing research on it. I have 7 little ones waiting on ice for me.

I did not do acupuncture on my 1st try and was not successful. I did do it on my 2nd try (also a fresh cycle) and was sucessful. I don't know if it's coincidence, but I'm a believer
 
Good luck tomorrow....I thought for sure that I wasn't pg., and I was. Did you do a hpt? Missy

My retrieval is probably going to be around the 23,24 or 25th....depends on those little follies!

My friend used fresh eggs, but she only had three that the Doc called "medium to poor quality". They put all three in and now she has 4 month old triplets! Keep the faith! What time is your appointment tomorrow?
