Hi all,

I'm just about to start my first (and, hopefully, only) IVF round.

I'm 41, been TTC for 3 years.

Hi there gingercg and welcome aboard. So sorry to hear about your miscarriages. Hope this cycle will not only be a BFP but also a sustained pg. Lupron...I had it for IVF #1 a couple of years ago and I must say the headaches, moodiness were almost crippling. I don't think it started on Day 1 though. It must have been a few days into the shots but gosh,...it was not fun. Every individual's experience can be different so hopefully you won't have lots of side effects. Good luck!!

Oy!! I fear I may kill one irritating co-worker in particular. He never stops talking at me. I always ripped his head off when I was on folistim and progesterone. I can't only imagine what I'll do to him when I'm on lurpon, too.

I really hope this time works for you!!!

I am so sorry to her of all your loses! That is really heartbreaking.

I have had several IUI's (failed) and now on to our 3rd IVF (previous 2 failed). This was my 1st cycle with Lupron and it was not my friend! At all! Horrible headaches and constantly moody. My poor husband has had the worst time with me these last 2 weeks. I really expected no problems because with other cycles I had absoutley NO problems.

I hope you have an easier time than I did and hope this IVF results in you bringing a baby home!
