May cyclers?

I thought I would be in April but I went for b/w yesterday and still no o (day 22) . This is following a failed IVF cycle so I guess I am not regular yet. I have to go back on the 14th for more b/w and hopefully I will start lupron then. This will be a medicated FET for me. I have some great quality embies waiting for me so I am feeling very positive. Looks like the transfer will be some where around May 16th. All my info is in my siggy.....but I have been around so long your all probably board with my story....LOL!

I am looking forward to getting to know my May cycle buddies:smileyhappy:

That's interesting about the biopsy! I have heard that before. I think I will ask the nurse about it when they call today. Thanks for the info.

I am now adjusted to the meds too. no more lupron headaches but I am trying to detox from coffee which is making them come back.

Yes, thank you for the chart...that's great! I'll get my calendar Monday, so I can update you on my dates :).

Question for you all....who have you told about this cycle? My close fam/friends know, but not the details. Last time everyone knew every detail, but I'm not sure how I'll handle it this time around. I really appreciated the support all of my fam/friends lent me last time, but this time I sort of want to keep it to myself for some reason. Plus sometimes I feel like they get a little tired of hearing from me about it and I don't want them to think I want their sympathy. ....just curious how open you guys are and with whom?

When I 1st started this process (2008) I told everyone everything. It took me 3 rounds of IVF to conceive dd#1 so I ended up getting sick of hearing myself talk about it. I also got really sick of answering questions. Although people always had the best intentions I found the questions to be annoying and even *stupid* at times. I know, sounds harsh but I am just being honest. When your not going through IVF its hard to understand the in's and out's of things and I get that but after a while I decided it would be better if I kept things more private.

My DH and I have kept both cycles private (only us and our RE), because I just don't have to emotional strength to tell family and friends if it doesn't work out. That's just us, I know different people handle it different ways.
