Starting Lupron on the 20th. I should be going for my accupunture soon. I have to say that this cycle I don't feel so neurotic about what I am eating and doing. I kind of feel like its out of my hands.

Hi Janie,

Thanks for the info on the meds... This is all new to me, so I don't know which meds and protocols are similar. Your clinic sounds like it has about the same embryo transfer protocol as mine. I just read today online that Octamom had 12 embryos placed! Yikes! I'll stick with one and hope for the best. :)

Hello, all! It's good to have company! I have two more weeks of bcp to go then start Stims around November 6th, and, hopefully ER around November 16th. This is our first IF treatment. Husband has very low motility, so we've been told IVF is the way to go. Scared beyond words about all the injections and failure, but it will be so worth it if it somehow works! Hope it's a great cycle for all of you!

Welcome Kayla,

Don't be scared about the injections. Has your nurse scheduled your injection class yet? Will you be taking the intramuscular projesterone injection after the transfer. If so you can always numb the area with ice if your scared, but in all honesty it sounds worse than it is. :-}

Yes, we just took the class a couple of days ago...I was surprised how many people were there! Unfortunately, I was tired, overwhelmed, didn't feel good...and it all felt very real for the first time, so, I was zoned out for the most part. I hope DH got it, or else, I've told myself I will grt it figured out somehow someway when I need to! I know the shots aren't too bad, but can be bad...I'll just have to deal with it, already the fear of that part is lessoning and the fear of will we have any embryos and can I sustain a pregnancy are heightening! Thank you for the welcome...I hope for all us undergoing treatments in November that it will be our very most thankful Thanksgiving, ever!

And, yes, have to take the progesterone. Please read the next statement with a lot of sarcasm: injecting thick oil into my butt on a daily basis really sounds like a hoot and I'm so excited to start that!!! :)

Welcome Kayla! I know your fear of injections. I am a nurse and used to giving the injections, so the thought of having my husband or anyone else doing it to me freaks me out! I was trying to consider doing the IM ones myself, but I just don't think I can! Even for the subcu ones that I did in my stomach with my last IUI, it
