Finally! So ready to get this show started! Rough draft plan expect AF around 20th start bcp's for 2 possibly 3 weeks and the start stims around May 12 or 19th. We have appt on May 2 for teaching visit and to finalize payment. DH still has final SA to do and possibly karotype testing. I will find out for sure tomorrow. Can't believe we are at this point, but here we are and hoping for our miracle. I'm 36, dh 35. TTC since Jan 2010. We had one natural pregnancy m/c at 5 weeks, one chemical pregnancy, and 1st iui bfp but no heartbeat found at 7 wks, and 3 more iui's with injectibles all bfn. All tests normal, no known underlying medical issues. I am currently eating a paleo diet 90% of time, doing accupuncture once a week and will up it to 2x/week during stims and have been taking high quality cod liver oil. A little bit scared, a little bit excited!

Hello! I'm back for IVF #2. Long story is in my siggie, but short story: I turn 36 in 10 days and have DOR and endo. I have a new RE, and I'm cautiously hopeful that the addition of DHEA therapy (75 mg/day) and assisted hatching will be a winning combination.

AF should arrive at the end of this month, then I'll start with Femara before adding 300 units of Gonal-F. No BCP.

Hoping for baby dust in the May group!

Andi,

I don't remember having to get an MMR booster before we started IVF, but I ended up getting one at the hospital before we came home with baby.

I know it always seemed like there was *one more thing* for a while up to getting started. Hope the list is done now and you're ready to start in May!!

So, I'm back again. I'm having a FET the end of May. It may be the first day or too of June, but hopefully you won't mind if I crash your party. I start Lupron this Saturday for two weeks before I start estrogen. Getting excited, and also nervous. Looking forward to sharing my journey with all of you.
