September Buddies

So apparently there are quite a few of us cycling in September, so let's start a September Buddies group.   I know quite a few of us introduced ourselves under 'who else is doing IVF in Sept', so why doesn't everyone check in here and we can start a progress chart?


I am excited to be starting again. I'm currently on 1st week of BCP's, one more week to go.  I go in for my baseline on Sept 5th, and take my first Lupron shot that day, if all is well.


Let's have a great September, ladies, with lots of BFP's!  :)

I just went yesterday for my first appt. I start BCP today and had all BW yesterday. I am so... confused with the whole process, I am sure I will get the hang of this. I need to schedule a HSC for next week.


A little about myself.... I am 34 will be 35 sept 20th. My DH is 33. We have a DS 3 yrs old (in oct) conceived naturally. My DH had a stem cell transplant 2008.

Oh HI Amber - didn't mean to forget you - and Vegas357 didn't see your name - welcome!

How is it going ladies?? Follicles cooking??

Today is day #6 of stims for me - 2 LEAD follicles in each ovary took off and almost measure 20 (what is it cm, ml, I don't know the units they just call off the numbers) each - all the others are less than 10 and there are just a few. Yuck I hope my RE doesn't cancel me. It only takes one, it only takes one and hopefully some of the rest of the them catch up!!

I am also starting now. Today was my baseline u/s and bloodwork and everything looks great! I started Estrace today along with baby aspirin (I have that blood thing too and I will switch to Lovenox after my transfer). We are doing a frozen transfer with our last two frozen embryos. I am excited and nervous but ready to go! I have it easy for the next week or so just taking meds and then the progesterone in oil (PIO) shots start and they are not bad but still hate the shots. But it will be worth it and believe it or not I prefer the shots in the butt to the Lovenox ones in the stomach. But I will do anything for this to work so I'm going to try not to complain.

Please Please Please God let this be the cycle where we get pregnant and stay pregnant!!

Transfer is scheduled for Sept 17th and Beta is Sept 27th.
