Hi Everyone!

DH and I decided to jump in for august IVF! I am on BCPs now until July 20th. I should get my finalized schedule this Friday. I just can't wait and have to know if anyone else is cycling in August with me!

I am starting to get really worried about the injections and if this is the right thing to do and all of those other things that pop into your head at times like these. So any advice and encouragement would be appreciated!

Good luck to everyone! FX for August BFPs!!!!

Hi Christa! Glad you can join us!

I think we should be pretty close in our cycles. I go in for mock transfer and injection education in July 18th. That is when I will get my list of meds and finalized schedule I believe.

I know i would be going crazy with anticipation if I didnt have work to distract me! lol

We are doing our first IVF too - so all the support from everyone on the board will be great i think. I notice i can never get IVF off the brain either. :)

My name is Risa by the way - how are you guys doing by the way Amanda and Jennifer?

KMP!!!

Hey Christa, I'm happy you can join us, fxed that you get your bfp on your first cycle.

AFM- I called my clinic on July 2nd to let them know I want to do ivf in August. However, the nurse who took the message didn't pass on the info to my RE!! I was pissed because nobody booked me for an August cycle.
Luckily, when I called today there were two spots open for ivf in August so I got one. I will know tomorrow what protocol I will be on.

And hell yeah I've got ivf on my brain 24/7!! I can't wait to get started!

Update:

So I went in for my hysterosonogram on the 8th and they called me last week to go over the results. I missed the call, but I know they mentioned seeing a "dark spot" on the uterus and they couldnt find my left ovary - I was a bit of a mess! A lot more of a mess than I thought I would be at 23. Anyway - I have to call the dr in the morning to find everything out for sure - but if it is

Hi Risa - I'm so sorry you didn't get great news on the hysterosonogram :(
I know how hard it is - sometimes its like taking 2 steps forward and one step back. My 1st IVF they found polyps, and I was so upset too - but they got me in right away to have a D&C to get rid of them and I was able to stay on track with the original IVF schedule. Talk to your dr tomorrow and see what they say - you never know. And if you have to wait another cycle, it will be worth it - its important to have everything "just right" - so try to keep your head up and remember that this is just a little bump in the road :) keep us posted!!

Hey Christa, I am so happy your check up went well! have fun on your vacation :)

Risa, I'm sorry things didn't go like you hoped. It would suck to have to sit out this cycle but it will be for the better. Like Jeninifer said this is just a bump in the road. It is so important to make sure everything is just right. The left ovary can be difficult to locate sometimes just because there are more organs on that side. My RE has to push on my stomach a little sometimes then she finds it.

Jennifer, how are you doing?

Congrats on your acceptance Amanda!!
i *think* bcp and lupron do pretty much the same thing, which like you said suppress your AF. My RE never put me on bcp, always lupron. Not sure why he chose that way, but he did tell me the first time that its usually one or the other. I'm not sure, but I guess that it could be based on how regular you ovulate? but I'm guessing there. :)

which scan will you have on the 8th? when you are on the lupron you may or may not get your AF

Hey Jennifer, thanks!!
I'm confused because usually they would let af come first then supress the ovaries then I start stims but I don't know why I'll be on suprefact before af. How come I am starting before af?
The scan has been moved to the13th now and I still don't know what it is for. I am guessing it is to make sure my ovaries are properly supressed? When I go in on the 25th I'll get more info.
I hope you all are doing great haopefully the nerves aren't getting to you.
