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!!!

Lupron suppresses the ovaries, and it's a tiny little needle in the tummy. It's nothing. I usually just do it myself. I do get headaches as side effects, and get very tired, but after a few days the side effects go away. When I did the FET I had estrogen shots too ( since there was no stimming), but that was only twice a week ( and I think my estrogen is naturally low so that's why I needed shots instead of the patch or pills).

Christa..Great to hear from you! Bedrest is twice as Mundane as Mundan ecan get!!! Do they anticipate that the hemmorage will rectify itself? What kind of specific implications can it have on the pregnancy? I must admit...I never knew anyone with this type of hemmorage..and here we have TWO in our little group!

Please take care of yourself! Gracie improves each day...... But the sight of her not breathing, turning blue and convulsing will NEVER leave my mind! The ambualnce and Fire crews were at the house within 3 minutes....so YEAH for them!!

Anxilsy wondering when our Donor Cycle will be...it all depends on syncing up our cycles. Plus..I have JUST FINALLY miscarried after taking the Cytotec. I even saw my little bean it his sac.....and even though most people would BARF at the thought of it...I had to investigate once it passed. It had little arm and leg buds. I did not cry....I have already grieved enough......I simply held it for a few moments and said my goodbyes. The clotting and bleeding were RIDICULOUS.....and some of the contractions were pretty intense...But I managed through it. Tired from Blood loss I'm sure!

I had My follow-up Ultrasound on Wednesday. The little bean definately stoppedprogressing and was still measuring about 7 weeks. BUT..the little bean has also decided NOT to leave the nest...and snuggled in for a long stay. I started the Cytotec last night and today things that ought NOT fall out of person...are! I am not in a lot of pain, just some mild Cramping and clamping down when something wants out. I'll repeat the drugs tonight...and next week follow-up to make sure all has been expelled.

We got the money for our Egg Donor Cycle....so we are looking at December (most likely) depending on everyone's schedules and cycles.

This better work....We are in the HOLE! LOL
