Hello Ladies,


Well here we are again - getting ready to start another IVF.  I don't know if anyone remembers me - I had my IVF in Jan and although we got a BFP, it ended in miscarriage at week 10.  It was pretty devestating, since we had gone in for u/s, even seen the heartbeat and had just been released to obgyn. 


We are ready to start again, so pretty excited to be cycling.  Anyone else cycling with me in August? 


So now waiting for Day 1 of my period so I can call to schedule my mock transfer.  Then BCP for 2 weeks so I should be doing injections by early August.


I've also been doing acupuncture since early June just to keep me relaxed.  So far it's working, I feel pretty good about going into this and keeping my fingers crossed. 


So who's cycling with me in August???.....lol.  Good luck to us all, ladies, and I'm here to offer my support to you.   


Chris

Hi August buddies! Nice to meet everyone.

Count me in...and count me in as nervous! Aug will be my first IVF cycle.

I am a first time poster this evening...but have been a follower since I started TTC #1 in 2007 (had success with an IUI in 2008). I am now TTC #2...3 failed IUIs later I'm about to start my first IVF cycle and am really nervous. My RE thinks I'll start stim in early Aug with retrieval around the middle of the month.

I'm nervous b/c I used Follistim for the failed IUIs in really low doses (usually 75 for 6 days) and I had severe cramping to the point that at times it was painful to sit. I'm pretty sure that IVF calls for larger doses and for 10 - 12 days.

Has anyone experienced this type of discomfort? If yes, what helped manage the pain?

Thanks in advance...and I'm thinking good thought for everyone.

Well, DH went in to take his sample to freeze today and I had him ask about why noone has contacted me about the IVF for August...they said they have my start date as September 4 so I guess I am doing two cycles of BCPs...ugh.
