Default good advice

Hi Shiree- Oh I am crossing my fingers for you! This is so exciting...I think you are right about the remaining eggs...I have in my mind that I will do this once and that will be it, but I KNOW it can take longer (or not work at all
) My latest worry is that over the course of the last year since I did my FSH test, my eggs have gotten too old! I don't know this is the case, but I'm worreid about it (I'm 39)... I guess I'll get more info tomorrow...

The only piece of advice that I can give you is to try to stay calm, have a good attitude and keep yourself busy. You can drive yourself crazy with idle time. You will feel a little bloated when taking the shots, but remember that is is worth it. If you have not thought about freezinf the remaining eggs, you may want to give it some serious thought. We did not expect to loose our babies, but sometimes things do happen. We would not have had to go through all of the shots again if we had. Have a good support system keeping a log of everything helps me as well. Good luck to you.
