Day one....here we go!!!

Wed, 09-01-2010 - 5:28pm

Baseline ultrasound looked great and bloodwork came back as expected so we are moving forward. I started my Estrace today (vaginally cause she said it gets it there faster?), baby aspirin, and prenatal vitamins. Transfer is still scheduled for Sept 17th! I am feeling positive that this will be the one!! Please Please Please God let this be the one!!

Who else is starting now??

I am going to try my best to relax after the transfer. I have a hard time just being still but I'm going to do it and the pineapple and anything else that might work because I am so determined to make this work! I just had a call from a friend who is pregnant -just don't know how it happened she said but here we are pregnant again. I wanted to throw up! Why is this so easy for some people? Oh well, don't want to dwell..so I hope everyone is enjoying this Labor day weekend.

at this point I figure it can't hurt...I'm willing to try anything to get this to work! well almost anything. :) I went today and fell asleep on the table. ha! We are up to twice a week for the acupuncture until the transfer. It is expensive and while my current insurance covers the ivf it does not cover acupuncture, which I think is strange but oh well. At least I'm not paying out of pocket for the transfer THIS time. I will also probably powerhouse some pineapple the days before the transfer -it is said to help with the implantation...probably an old wives tale but I know A LOT of women on these boards have done it and gotten pregnant and since it can't hurt, I will also do that. you might want to give it a try.

How Funny
I just started acupuncture today, we scheduled four more before our transfer in three weeks. I can't imagine it not being helpful.
Good luck ladies.

Hi Wendy!

I would love to go through this with you. I will have less than you because I'm doing a frozen transfer but we can still support each other. I am also doing acupuncture. I've been going for a few weeks now. I did it the first fresh transfer and we got pregnant but we did miscarry. But the second transfer I didn't do the acupuncture and we didn't get pregnant so I am thinking the acupuncture might have had something to do with it. Don't be nervous...all of this not so pleasant stuff is going to get us babies!! So good luck tomorrow with your doctor visit.

Hi Carolyn,
Looks like we are starting together. This is my 4th ivf and my second donor. This is truly my last chance.......out if money and the ability to go through the disappointment anymore. I am so nervous about my donor choice. She has proven fertility at a different clinic 5 years ago and has a 2 year old of her own. They did her baseline last week and said that she has a ton of follicles! I started bravelle and lupin 2 days ago ( I am allergic to estrace). I go for another ultrasound and blood work tomorrow and then again on Monday. My donor started the meeds today! I am so scared! I am also going to do intralipid infusion and acupuncture; we are just trying to cover all the bases. At this point I am willing to try anything!

Good luck! I would love to be here for you as we go through this at the same time!
