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!  :)

Mandy,

So exciting about the ER! I have had my share of disappointments too but I also still get very excited and try to stay positive each time we go. I just pray that is because we will one day all be successful!

We had the circles drawn too and one thing that helped was to put a water bottle with water in the freezer. A few minutes before the shot I put that on the circle and it's numb within 30 seconds and I don't feel a thing. Give that a try!

Best of luck tomorrow! Stay positive!

oh and the Estrace gives me headaches and my breasts are sore, especially my nipples which hasn't happened before. I am taking the Estrace vaginally this time because my doctor wants it to "get there faster" so that may be why I've had more side effects than before. But everyone is different so you might not notice anything.

Jill,

Not sure if today was your u/s or it's tomorrow...looks like your post was at 1am! But if it was today, how did it go? Are you triggering soon?

Congrats on the 10 eggs! That is great! The transfer will be much easier than the retrieval so that is good. Will your clinic be calling with the fertility report? do they always just go for the 5 day transfer? Keep us posted!

I would definitely do the acupuncture! I will go before the transfer and after...my acupuncturist does that with all of her patients. she says it helps balance you out and get you prepared for both the transfer and the implantation.

I asked why my transfer would be in five days, and they told me if I just had two eggs we would do it on Saturday. Since there are ten, they will wait for the best two out of the ten and do the transfer Monday afternoon. I have just laid around with the heating pad all day today. I canceled my acupuncture appointment, but now I am wondering if I should go. Yesterday was my first acupuncture a ppt and I wasn't sure what I thought of it. I was wondering if a massage would calm me just the same. I really want this to work and never have to go through this emotional roller coaster again.
