Please help!! NEED ENCOURAGEMENT

I went in today and yes I had more follies and they had grown, but I STILL have to stim at least 3 or four more days! Which means MORE time off work, and at least 600.00 more dollars for meds! I wanted to quit, but my nurse was like NO they ARE growing just slow! Sometimes slow is better! What a truly stressful day not to mention we have to drive 2 hours there and back. I am a teacher so I feel so guilty for being out so much and I can't shake it! I am trying with all my heart to think positive, I thought we would be done by now! Thank God we are this far, but I just need a bit of encouragement!

1. You can have one glass of wine.
2. Slow is better. My first IVF cycle the follies grew very quickly. They did not fertalize well. The second time it took an extra week. We got much better results and subsequently a beautiful boy!

Hang in there. This will all seem like nothing when you first look into your little one\'s eyes.

Keeping you in my prayers.

You can do it. Don\'t give up especially this far into it. Slow is not a bad thing. Stay positive and rest up!

Again I\'ll just say slow and steady wins the race! hang in there. I get it, I have to pay cash for all my meds too, so I know how quickly it adds up, but if it works the end result will be priceless.

Re: the wine, I\'ve actually read of some studies that say just 2 glasses of wine during an IVF cycle can decrease your chances of it working by 25%. So since it took you so many false starts to get here, might want to hold off on the wine, sadly. (I feel your pain -- I had my last glass over the weekend in preparation for this cycle and I miss it already!)

Good luck! Grow follies grow!
