Hello Ladies,


Well here we are again - getting ready to start another IVF.  I don't know if anyone remembers me - I had my IVF in Jan and although we got a BFP, it ended in miscarriage at week 10.  It was pretty devestating, since we had gone in for u/s, even seen the heartbeat and had just been released to obgyn. 


We are ready to start again, so pretty excited to be cycling.  Anyone else cycling with me in August? 


So now waiting for Day 1 of my period so I can call to schedule my mock transfer.  Then BCP for 2 weeks so I should be doing injections by early August.


I've also been doing acupuncture since early June just to keep me relaxed.  So far it's working, I feel pretty good about going into this and keeping my fingers crossed. 


So who's cycling with me in August???.....lol.  Good luck to us all, ladies, and I'm here to offer my support to you.   


Chris

Thanks Chris for your message. It's good to hear what others are going through. Maybe we'll be stimming together. Thanks for the crossed fingers. I'll let ya'll know what happens.

Well at my CD9 checkup my follies increased from only 3 on the right side, to 2 on the left with dominant at 12mm and 4 on the right, with one at 10mm. So, that was comforting. I did my first acupuncture for fertility today and it was soooo relaxing. I feel like taking a very long nap right now. I plan to do this 1x/week throughout the next couple of months and then of course at ER and ET. Although, you never know, I might get lucky on this Clomid/timed BD cycle. :) :) :)

Hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend.

Hi Jill
I am actually on the July board but I saw your post. My sister in Law is 42 and this is her 3rd IVF. She stimmed with Pergonal and Profasi this time and she got an amazing 8 eggs 5 of them looked, in the words of her doctor" fantastic on day 3." We wont know for another week if she is pregnant but she sure has a great chance this time!
I don't know the anwser to your question but I don't want you to lose hope because of your age.
I am doing accupunture for this July cycle its supposed to be great for egg production and quality

Hi Jen,

Great that you found out when you're gonna start and what protocol. It's so exciting to actually have a plan in place, isn't it? Crossing my fingers for you!

Well, my Clomid cycle challenge is going well. Today is CD14 and I have 4 nice follies (good for me) with largest at 20mm. The nurse thinks I'll O soon, so probably won't need a trigger. Wouldn't it be great if I got my BFP before I even had to start my IVF? OK - well I'm not getting my hopes up. If this cycle is a bust then I have my consult on 7/28 where I'll find out what my protocol, etc. and of course if the doc is even willing to try with my ancient eggs and high E2. :) I keep thinking to myself that I should've stuck with it last time after all of my failed cycles. But, God has a plan I guess.

Here's to a round of BFP's!!!!

Hi ladies,

Still no O for me and I'm on CD15. I go back tomorrow though if still no +OPK tonight. I looked back through all of my notes and in all of my cycles, even Clomid only, I always had a trigger. I never O'd on my own (with medication). So, probably what will have to happen. I hope my follies don't get too big to be good.

Hope everyone is doing well. 1/2way to August!

Jill
