  • well, my dh and i decided to go forward with ivf even though my doctor recommended aborting and starting over again next month. i only show 5 follicles, but she is thinking that i'll have about 3-4 eggs, realistically. please keep me in your thoughts and wish me luck that i have more eggs to work with!

    amanda, how are you feeling? when do you go back in for the transfer?

  • I am crossing my fingers for you!! Five is good. All you need is one or two good. I have 9 embryos right now and the most he is going to transfer is 3 and then he is hoping that I am only pregnant with one or two.

    I can not wait to see how everything went!! I am sending you tons of positive thoughts.
