New to IVF

Hello all, I'm new to IVF but obviously not new to infertility (see my soggy). November will be 4 years of trying for us and I'm excited and scared to take this big step. I start BCPs at the beginning of September and would love a cycle buddy. Anyone starting around the same time?

I remember you too, Amanda! Good luck with IVF number 2! I'm super nervous. I think this will likely be our one and only IVF unless we have some to freeze. We have talked about adoption if this doesn't work. I feel like I'm already stressing about it not working!!! Did you guys feel this way before?

Thanks Jamie, I think it is great that you guys have talked about other options just in case. Honestly, yes and I have already made plans just in case I don't get my bfp this cycle. I think it is always good to have a plan it helps to keep you sane. Try not to stress though because many ladies have gotten their sticky bfp on their first try. I'll be checking up on you during your cycle for sure. Good luck :

Jamie,

I think that there is a new September Buddies thread that you can join. Just like on the IF board, you will find tons of support here.

I will definitely be rooting for you the whole way!
