HI all,

I am 38, DH is 36. TTC for 2 years. One tube blocked. MC 2/02, EP 5/02. Started Lupron on 7/23. Waiting for AF...

I am already thinking ahead and I am wondering if you all will be telling people that you conceived thru IVF (if we are so lucky)? I am unsure as to whether I will or not. Some people just cringe when I start to talk about it now.

Love to hear from some cycle buddies too!

Cheers-

Erin

Hey Erin - we are cycle buddies - I started lupron on 7/22 - AF is due today but I have a feeling that it won't come until tomorrow. I am very hopeful about IVF - this is my first shot (no pun intended - LOL) at it and we really think its going to work. I had an ectopic loss 10/02 and lost my right tube. Since then I have not ovulated regularly and did not respond well to clomid. DH is healthy and I am healthy with the exception of only having one tube and not ovulating.

Good luck to you too!

We told everyone that they were IVF babies. I ended up with twins, they are 6 months. We tried for 8 years so when it happened we talked about it all the time. We thought that we were the only people that we knew that had this problem and when you talk about it you find that there are alot more people out there too. It is good to talk about it. It made me feel better also. Good luck!!!!!!!

Good luck to us both Amy!

I am less optimistic, mostly due to my age, but all else besides my damaged tubes seems to be fine, so the doc is very encouraging.

I am very anxious for the retrieval and transfer. I took the whole week off from work so it wouldn't be too stressful.

Keep me posted on your progress :)
