September Buddies

So apparently there are quite a few of us cycling in September, so let's start a September Buddies group.   I know quite a few of us introduced ourselves under 'who else is doing IVF in Sept', so why doesn't everyone check in here and we can start a progress chart?


I am excited to be starting again. I'm currently on 1st week of BCP's, one more week to go.  I go in for my baseline on Sept 5th, and take my first Lupron shot that day, if all is well.


Let's have a great September, ladies, with lots of BFP's!  :)

Hey everyone!

Just started the 2 medication shots yesterday and continuing the lupron. Go back to the Dr on Tuesday the 7th. Possibly looking at egg retrival on the 14th of September and insertion on the 19th (which is my birthday so hopfully brings me some luck). I feel so anxoius, nervous and excited all at the same time. I keep praying and hoping I get the beginners luck. My DH tells everyone about it, and that kind of makes me more nervous because I feel like its a jinx, but the dr told me with IVF no one can really jinx you, its based on timing and body functions. I want to wish all my September buddies good luck, and hopfully we can make a due in june 2011 thread next!

Good Luck!!

I will keep everyone posted.

Wow Mandy you are doing great, good luck with everything else.


Hey Lisa Marie, I hope all of us get beginners luck... :-)


AFM- I got my second Menopur shot today and it didn't sting at all so that was great, I love my nurse....I also got my meds for three days since I will have to go to another branch of my clinic for them to administer the shot for me. My scan is on the 8th so I'll know how well I am responding then. I am definitely excited to know how many there are.


GL to all of you ladies.

I am going in for my transfer Sunday am, that's tomorrow. I am so excited. I thought I was doing an iui on Wed but it has turned into ivf because I hyperstimulated. Lord knows that I want babies but I don't want to be the octo mom either! They harvested 14 eggs on thurday, and they have 9 embryos. I am thrilled. I

Lisa Marie - yes I hope we all get beginner's luck also!


Amanda - glad the shot didn't burn the 2nd time, it's burnt 6 out of 8 times we've done it


Brooke - GL tomorrow!!!! What a surprise going for an IUI and getting an IVF - sounds like you had great numbers, any idea how many you will transfer??

Hello ladies, I hope everyone is doing well. I'm having my own pity party today. :(

Today is day 9 of stims and I only have 4 follies to work with. 15.5, 10.5, 10.5, and 9.5. I go back in Tuesday. The smaller ones need to be at least 14 for them to continue. Otherwise I'll be doing an IUI. That is IF I don't ovulate on my own. :( This is my 3rd day of Ganirelex and I sure hope it does the trick! I just have that feeling though that my body's gonna do it's own thing.

Anyone have any good news today? :)

Erica - good luck w/your transfer sounds like you did awesome!

Jill - I'm so sorry - maybe they can change up the meds for next go-round. Or maybe the IUI will WORK!!

Me - trigger shot tonight at 1 AM - yuck and then retrieval on Wednesday - hopefully they find more - they can only see about 6-8 on u/s but I'm kinda getting up there (4-0 is looming). Hopefully a good % fertilize!!
