Hi, I started my stims 7/31, and IF I get some healthy looking follies (I'll settle for one!), my "projected" ER is 8/11, and ET is around 8/15.

I'm in Chicago, using Fertility Centers of Illinois.

Hi Ling - I started my stims on 8/2 and we are looking at a projected RT date of 8/13 so we are cycle buddies. Good luck to you.

hiya ack1 :-)

our cycles are very close! What is your protocol?

I started my stims on 7/31, and will continue through 8/8, I'm taking:

Gonal F multidose 600 IUs each day

Lupron 5 units each day, as well.

have you noticed any reactions to your stims, yet? Lupron gave me low-throbbing headaches but that stopped after a day or so.

after the first night of stims, I had the headache, the following day, kind of drowsy. Today, my 5th day of stimming, no headache but still drowsy, it comes and goes... I fugure it's the Gonal F. How about you?

I had a pretty bad headache yesterday, also. That's all so far. Is it going by quickly for you? When is your first ultrasound?

Hope you are having a good day!

I am taking lupron and follistim and repronex. I feel like a pin cushion. I had my first ultrasound and it went excellent - they said everything is going very well. I have a lot of follicles. I am not sure when RT will be but not long from now. Today is day 5 of stims.

I get headaches off and on and I am exhausted. Yesterday was my last day at work until I finish this so that's a big relief. Now I can rest. I am so excited and everything has gone smoothly so I am very hopeful.

My stim shots hurt so bad - they burn like crazy - UGH!! I know it will all be worth it.

Good luck to you!

I had my 1st u/s on day 4, and no follies yet... they said it may be too early and different women's ovaries respond at different paces, so I'm to continue with same protocol and go back this Fri for another u/s.. I'm praying SOOOOOO hard that at least ONE good one shows! This is weird because before I EVER starting doing any stims or IVf, I always had at least 3-4 follies.... I just hope those little guys just went away for the wknd and now they're heading back "home"! :-)

On the upside, all my b/w and uterine lining looks good... that's a big relief. I'm praying for all of us ... best wishes and positive baby vibes!!!

Hang in there, Ling. It is still early. Good luck to you!

Are your stim injections burning as bad as mine?
