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!!!!

Me - 23 DH - 27 TTC #1 since 08/2009 severe MFI, azoo. Starting IVF #1 in August 2011!!!

I think that is fantastic - at the end of the day, the outcome will be the same - a beautilful little angel that will call you mom. And the extra $ saved is just an additional plus!!! Best of luck , and please do keep us posted when you get your BFP!!!!!

I'm glad that you & your DH were able to come to an agreement that works well for you.

Hey Ruthie, you must be so happy that you have started the stimming process already, I can't wait to get started! I was on menopur for my ivf cycle last year and boy did it sting! Most women ice the area first and I would usually massage the area after, I'm not sure if you can get rid of all the stinging completely. I've never mixed any of the medication since I use to go to the clinic for the shots but this time around I'll be doing the mixing etc myself, I'm not looking forward to that, I've heard it can be a little tricky. Those darn nurses make it look so easy :)
Anyways, keep us posted on what's happening with you and good luck :)

AFM- I am still in the'down regualtion' phase, I have a scan next Friday (12th) to make sure everything is dormant and hopefully if it is I'll be starting my stims then. I feel like af is on her way, she is due on the 8th. I'm hoping if she is coming she would come sooner so she won't be here for my scan next week.

The menopaur/follitism definitely does sting a bit. And those shots are defintiely tricky with the mixing and whatnot... I remember my first one I threw it in the garbage and started all over!! lol!! You'll get better at it with every night... and if there is a tiny air bubble its fine - i could never get them all out - i just tried my best!!

I'm still moving along with my lupron shots - along with the headaches every day and sleepiness too!!

when is your next b/w and u/s? keep us posted of course!!!

Jennifer- ugh! These Lupron headaches! I've been trying to refrain from taking the Tylenol but I may have to cave in eventually!

Amanda- Hope AF shows up for you soon so that she's good & gone by your scan :)

Ruthie85- I hope your headaches are easing up a bit. Make sure and ask your nurse which otc pill is ok to take during ivf. I'm glad you have the mixing down, I am nervous about that part. I'm happy to hear that using the ice helped a bit, good luck with your app on Monday, be sure to give us an update.
