New here -- anyone cycling in Aug.?
Thu, 07-29-2010 - 9:40pm

I had a daughter 8 1/2 yrs. ago through IVF, got divorced and remarried and am now trying to have another..  DH has low sperm count. (So did my ex -- is it something about me? my cooking?) so, we will be doing IVF again, through the same doctor.  I wanted to wait a few months so I can lose some weight before we start, but, after my blood tests, my dr. said I should start as soon as possible.  So, I am losing what I can now, and we will start with my next period, which should be in early Aug.  If I am reading the schedule correctly, the transfer should be about a month and a half after that.  I had good luck before, so I'm hoping I will have luck again, though I am almost 9 yrs. older now (43).  My ovaries and uterus looked good, but one of the numbers on the blood test which relates to egg quality and number was not so good.  (So, why do I still have the same cramps?  If life were fair, as egg quality goes down, the cramps should be less severe.)
