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

Well, this has been the best Monday I can remember in a while! :) LOTS of good news! DH and I went in for our embryo transfer this morning, and everything went GREAT! Of the 12 embies that were allowed to grow, 7 have reached blastocyst stage (and the other 5 are still growing, so they'll be frozen tomorrow if they reach blast- none stalled out so far!) Our embryologist tried really hard to convince us to only transfer one, but my RE (whom I ADORE) really went to bat for us and convinced him to transfer two, which was my ardent desire. As we already have a child with special needs, I'm very aware of the challenges that go along with prematurity and complicated pregnancies, etc. We're really thinking this will be our last pregnancy, if we're successful and get at least one baby, so twins would be grand.

Anyway, Jen: 98 degrees in Seattle?!? I'm in HotLanta, lol,, and our temps aren't that bad right now- low 90s is hot enough, but at least we all have AC! I couldn't imagine surviving without AC, especially with the hormones, etc! Good luck with everything!

And, I'm waiting to hear the news from my "IVF Buddy" on here, Lynn- fill us in on your ET!! :)

I took a hpt the day before the blood test the last time I went through this and got a faint positive (if you held it up to the light and squinted), so I was pretty sure before the "official" test.

Well, I've decided not to do the HPT and just wait it out.
