getting ready to go again...

Hello ladies!!

I frequented this board back in the fall of 2007 when I was initially starting IVF. My first attempt in Aug 07 was cancelled when I didn't suppress adequately. I completed IVF #1 in Oct 07, which resulted in chemical pg. IVF #2 in Jan 08 resulting in our little Noah, who is now 18mo. My diagnosis is endo and high fsh. I do not stim well - only got 2 embryos with #1 and 1 with #2.

We had a consult with RE a few weeks ago, and I'm anticipating my period tomorrow, so day 3 testing on Monday and it's on!!

I'm kind of nervous to do it all again, but I love my RE and everyone at the office (fertility centers of illinois in oakbrook terrace - anyone?) and I can look back fondly on my IVF experience with Noah, so I'm trying to stay positive about everything. However, in the time between when I got pregnant and present, I have a dear friend who went through FIVE IVF cycles, ohss twice, and is finally pg with twins, but on bedrest now at 21w2d with a cerclage after becoming fully effaced, dialating to 2cm, and having contractions for the last week....

anyways, wish us luck!! i'll be around this place no doubt, since it was such a great support when i was going through everything before and i'm still really close with a lot of the girls i cycled with back in jan 08!

Elizabeth - That is such a cute picture! I couldn't resist, I made you a siggie. Please don't feel obligated to use it. I just love her squinty smile. :-)

Mindy - You're due for a new siggie too, missy.
