January Cyclers - Come out and play...

I don't think we have an official January Cyclers Club so I will start a thread. I know a bunch of us were kinda in the December group (winter cyclers) but I thought I still would do one for our January ladies.

My info:
I am Christy and just turned 37 and DH is 42. We have been trying for our first since 2006 and finally went to the RE in 2010. (I know, we should have went sooner but DH wanted things to happen naturally). Since 2010, I had one ectopic on my first IUI and 5 BFN IUIs so I am onto IVF. There were a few delays and I am finally ready to start my first IVF cycle. Thank goodness!!!

No bad side effects. Estrogen makes your skin good and helps "lube" for, um..."recreation". ;)

Welcome Christine!

We are on very similar start dates because I took my last BCP last night and you are shortly behind that. I haven't had breakthrough bleeding on BCP but my RE did warn me that it can happen. I think that is normal for some people until your body gets use to it.

I go for my baseline ultrasound and bloodwork this Thursday which I am excited about. That day will be busy because I have the ultrasound at 7:30 AM, then at noon I have to take my dog in for a blood test and then at 2 PM I have my acupuncture appt. I guess it is good to keep busy and not obsess about IVF. Yeah right!

Welcome!!!

I am on IVF number 3 right now...... and with each one, I had some spotting and then never a REAL period when I was on the BCP. That is because I don;t usually take it......Obviously..getting pregnant is a problem for us..so why use BCP UNLESS it is for IVF! LOL.

I am hoping the January Group brings in the New year with MANY BFP's!!!! I'll be here with ALL of you while your cycles start and finish!!!

Thank you for starting this post! I was wondering where all the January cyclers were. I'm doing an estrogen priming cycle this time and I start my estrogen this weekend. Then, I'll start stims on day 2 of my next period, which will likely be around January 18th. So, an ER and ET late January.

Good to see you again TallGal!!!! (We have been on way too many boards together!!!! LOL) I'll be cheering you on! I'm in the december Group.......but following some of our "winter cyclers" like a hawk for support and well wishes! Hoping my December BFP STAYS a BFP....after August Cycle ended in a miscarriage in Early October.

I hope the estrogen Priming cycle does the trick!! This is your first time on that protocol..right?
