Starting IVF in Oct?
67
Thu, 09-02-2010 - 11:34pm

Hi Ladies,


Well, the time has come...I'm excited and scared, but ready to be a mom more than anything. I'm probably a little early, but wanted to see if there were any potential cycle buddies out there yet. We are getting ready for IVF #1, I will be starting birth control pills later in Sept., probably doing ER at the end of Oct/beginning of Nov. In the meantime, I'm trying to lose a little weight, getting some exercise, and will hopefully be starting acupuncture soon. Here's hoping that IVF does the trick!

Wishing all the best to you gals who just transferred or are close to it. I started 21days of bcp for a mid november retrieval, if there's no problems. Will hopefully start stim injections November 6th. This is our first treatment and first ivf. Scared and excited.

It is very hard to wait. I wish we could find out immediately if it worked but you have to give it time. I really hope you get good news Monday!

AFM - I have my transfer tomorrow. I am ready I think. I have all my movies ready and magazines and clean sheets and pajamas so I can stay off my feet for the next few days. I won't be online for a few days so good luck to everyone this weekend. I'll be back next week!

Good luck, Danielle! I will be thinking about you and sending lots of baby dust your way! I can only imagine how long the 2ww is after IVF, and I know I'll be tempted to test ahead of beta (if I make it that far).

It is really difficult to stay off the computer. I just wanted to update you. My transfer was a success yesterday. We transferred two "perfect" embryos, one was hatching and the second was starting to hatch. We had to wait a while because my bladder would just not get full. But finally we were able to transfer, I went to acupuncture afterwards and then straight home to rest. I have been off my feet except to go to the bathroom and to let the dogs out this a.m. I feel nothing at all. I was uncomfortable yesterday but so far nothing today. I know it's out of my hands but I am just praying we get good news in 10 days when we have our blood test. Good luck to everyone...who else is transferring soon?

Best wishes to you...I may be doing first ivf soon, do you mind if I ask why bladder has to be full? I thought usually you're supposed to have an empty bladder before u/s or something like that?
