It’s A Whole New Ball Game

HCG: 251
E2: 942
Progesterone: 79 (after googling I'm changing this - even though I swear the nurse said 179)

I’m overwhelmed at the moment. Relief. Excitement. Pure joy.

I know it’s only the first inning, but the score looks good to me.

Sweetie that's so wonderful. And exactly the same number that I got a week ago - I hope it's a good omen for both of us! Mazel tov!

OMG that is wonderful news!! I have been checking all morning for news. Mazel tov! ok I don't know much about baseball but being in the land of the Giants, I'll say I hope you'll be like Barry Bonds and keep hitting home runs for the next 9 months! And if/when you're up to it, please stop by our old spot and let the gang know your great news.

That's fantastic!! Hopefully your good luck will rub off. If all goes according to plan, we've got retrieval and transfer coming up this weekend. Since we're at the same clinic and I think we have the same RE, I hope they're on a winning streak. Fingers crossed that all continues to go well for you!

Mellie - Congrats. I am so happy for you. I just wanted you to know that I forced my RE and husband to do ICSI after reading your story. Luckily we did because his sperm did not fertilize any of the eggs we did not ICSI. So, thank you very much for sharing your story and helping me (hopefully) have a successful IVF.

Good luck to you!
