i think i just broke my big toe ... :( stupid chair!!
annatarz79thanks A for the wishes. Sunshine your input is really appreciated. i went to the hospital on the first day and they did tape my toes together. the pain is not severe anymore but still there if i step on my toes or try to walk properly. today is the 5th day and i dont have any swelling or anything. how will i tell if i have a fracture? the doc said he wanted xrays but my ob said no freaking way... so i dont know how to proceed. i will go back next week to see what they have to say.

SunshineTTCHmm, I'd vote don't do xray... pretty sure if it was broken it would be swollen, at least if badly broken... my toes are still swollen 2 months later (orthopedic surgeon claims "this is normal" - I did not need surgery). Also the taping will make it hurt more, it's restricting movement (good thing) but the toes are trying to move their natural way against the restriction. Give yourself a break from the tape every so often. I couldn't tape first week, hurt too much.

annatarz79thank you for sharing your experience with me Sunshine. I am starting to believe that my toe is not broken just badly injured. i taped it myself the first day and then the doctor did a better job. it was painful but still manageable. i didnt even have to take any pain meds which is good. we will see how it goes!!

Has anyone used stims to make your lining better for a FET. MY RE wants to do it next cycle
returnableDo a search in the forums as I know this has been covered.
Feb 15 2017 10:00 AM
janny82My dr also suggested it as my lining is never stellar with just estrace but I am opting for a natural FET as my lining seems to be great on its own. Just makes it a little harder to plan for the FET as my cycles aren't regular. I believe they do a low dose stims. Hopefully it works out for you!
Feb 16 2017 12:41 PM
lumnayThis might be too late... but yes, stims (mild superovulation) during natural cycle (without estrace until after trigger) got my lining thick and it worked. Good luck!
Feb 20 2017 02:37 PM
All my follicles are 10-12 mm all growing perfectly and im only on CD 5 and low stims so i go back on Friday and retrieval will be Mon or Tues So excited
annatarz79super cool!!! good luck on Monday!!!!!!
Feb 14 2017 03:02 PM
RenaeThank you so much Ladies I just dont want a lot at Retrieval cause everytime i get a lot there not good quality. And i have 18 on one side and 12 on the other Hoping cause of the low stims there still good well we are doing PGS this time so we will know.

The groundhog lied.
amp77I got snowed in. Snowblower is broken. Currently over 20w pregnant. Tried to do it myself and just can't. My neighbour was kind enough to do it.. For $60 lol
Feb 15 2017 10:20 AM
returnableWhat!?! You had to pay your neighbour? Where do you live?
Feb 15 2017 10:25 AM
amp77Ottawa. He was the only one out since he is retired. Took him under 10 mins because he has a big sit inside tractor thing ha. Oh well, I can go to the post office, my appointment and get my son now lol

Find a surrogate mother
On day 2 of stims. I had 36 Antral follicles.
amp77Good luck! Hoping they grow evenly and you are able to retrieve some nice, mature, eggs!
Feb 13 2017 03:44 PM
RenaeI think on the Lupron protocol they normally grow pretty evenly as far as i know. Thank you
