Hello! I just wanted to introduce myself...I see some familiar faces (hi Amanda & Elizabeth!). We're fresh off a visit with our RE's nurse IVF coordinator where we went over our upcoming IVF cycle. We'll be doing a long Lupron cycle which will begin in December. ER/ET should be early January. I'm sure I'll have millions of questions and lots of anxiety that I'll need you ladies for :)
A little about us...I'm 29 (will turn the big three-oh on Thanksgiving) and DH is 31. We've been TTC for 3 years, 9 months and are dealing with MFI. We've done several IUIs despite DH's low numbers, and one actually worked in October 2009. Unfortunately, even after seeing the heartbeat twice, we lost it and eventually miscarried right before Christmas that year. Our last IUI attempt was February of this year and we decided to stop paying for IUIs and start planning for IVF. It wasn't until August that I finally was able to accept the fact that we had to do IVF and moved past my anger and resentment. Now I'm really excited about it and can't wait tot start. I still have a lot of anxiety about the money that we're putting on the line...but that's natural, I'm sure. Family has helped us out along the way, and we'll finance whatever is left. We are rolling in a new (low budget) kitchen remodel with the financing so that if IVF fails, I'll at least be making monthly payments on something that I can actually enjoy.
Anyways, AF just showed up yesterday so I have a sonohistogram and mock ET scheduled in a couple weeks. Then we wait until CD 21 of my November cycle to get things started.
Looking forward to getting to know everyone and cheering everyone on!
