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!!!

Update on my cycle...After 2 days of stims, I have a total of 20 follies all under 7mm at my scan on Thursday. My IVF Coordinator says that she is pleased with that and everything looks good so far. I have another blood test and scan tomorrow morning...I'm excited to see how many have grown by then! Fingers crossed that things continue to progress smoothly and that we're still on track for ER & ET between January 7-10.

Christy, I can't wait to see a BFP in your future! I hope all you January cyclers get sticky BFPs!

FashGirl:

All of MY IvF cycles have been 5dt. And ALL have been BFP's. I insist on a 5dt because even when an RE says that the uterus is the BEST place for an embie....I prefer to know that the BEST and BLASTS are going in!!! My RE always does 5dt with certain aged patients and Donor cycles......Also, the nice thing about 5dt..they are SO ready to BUST out of the shell and attach!! LOL

And if everything Falls apart for us like the last cycle..... I need people to vent with!!! (But That BETTER not happen!!!)

Lindsay: You are way too funny. Good luck on your second Beta. I'm hoping for strong levels and for an increase in Progesterone. What we won't do to our bodies for this wonderful gift. Keep up posted!

Jamie - I am sorry that I missed you on the first list. I had you written down but it didn't get typed. Opps.....


Fashgirl - It seems that each RE has a different insight to the 3 or 5 day transfer. I think sometimes they go with a 3 day is if you wouldn't have many embies to choose from and they want it in the womb ASAP. If you have more to choose from then I would suggest waiting to day 5 like Lindsay mentioned. I hope I get enough to do a 5 day transfer.

All: I won't add dates to the list unless you are fairly certain of the date. I know that when we start stimming we may not know how the dates until they see how you respond. :smileyhappy:

Thanks Lindsey & Christy!

Its very helpful to get the first hand info from someone who has experience. I will have to discuss the 5 dt with my RE on Monday. I want to make sure I am giving myself the best possible chance.

Everyone have a safe, happy, and lucky new year!
