Cycling in June?

I graduated to IVF after another failed IUI. In fact, I'm waiting for AF to arrive and she's not cooperating. I stopped taking the progesterone supplements 5 days ago and all I've done is a little spotting yesterday. Anyway, as soon as she gets it together I can start the BCPs on CD3. I'm more than a little scared of this but since we really decided to take this plunge, I'm eager to get going! We've been TTC for 3 years and have had one m/c...I'm ready for a triumph!

BCPs for 21 days (I guess?) and then on to lupron. Who's with me?

Lauren,

A big congratulations x2! There's always something to worry about in this process, isn't there? I hope next Friday gets here before you know it!

Thanks, Eliza! The worry is definitely not over after you get that BFP, it's just starting! When is your next beta?

We had our FET consultation today. Planned out the protocol (long lupron) and she said I'd need more estrace and PIO support than others. PIO for the whole 2WW this time. She reassured us that the clinic's success rate with FET was 100% last year. She's sure that with 6 frosties I won't need another fresh IVF cycle. It will be another 3 weeks until I start BCP, so we're looking at early/mid Sept. I will get it this time.

Chouli- I'm glad your consult went so well. A 100% FET success rate is amazing! Enjoy your few weeks free from hormones!

Chouli-I'm pleased the appointment with the RE went well. I can't believe they have such a great FET result! Make sure you make good use of these next few weeks- wine with dinner, soft cheeses, etc, etc. I think you'll find the FET is much gentler on your body then your fresh cycle.

AFM- d15po 312, d18po 652, d22po 2372. Beta doubling rate of 51.54hrs. I'm feeling a bit calmer now. I'll feel even better after my first US- another 12 days away.

Hope everyone else

Chouli- that is an incredible FET rate! My clinic I think stands around 30ish % so 100 is well, better! It is a much simpler protocol so I've enjoyed that with my FET's.

Eliza- glad your most recent beta is reassuring, can't wait for your ultrasound!

AFM- 15 days until my OB appointment, and then hopefully they can get me scheduled for my NT scan toward the front of the limit (would be about 3 weeks from now) because I just have to see the babes again- Yes, I'm that nervous, all the time.
Trying to relax, and sleeping the day away- everyday!
