Thanks for starting a thread Cilla!  I'll try to kick off the thread.

My name is Caryn and I'm waiting for AF to arrive (likely this weekend) to start my BCPs and am looking at a FET mid September. It will be a fully medicated (Lupron, Estrogen, Trigger & Progesterone) cycle following a failed natural FET attempt in July. It looks like transfer might end up being within a week of when my transfer was with my DD so hopefully it's a lucky time of year for us once again =)  

I've included my whole siggy below so those who don't know me can get a little background if they want.  Look forward to meeting my cycle buddies!

I'm pretty sure I'm here.  We're on the calendar for my RE's September cycle, barring any unforseen issues.  We signed all the financial paperwork today (GULP!) and have our patient education session Thursday morning. I found out today that my thyroid levels are a bit off, so I start Synthroid in the morning.  I have to have repeat labs in 30 days, hopefully they'll let us start stimming before then.  If not, I'm hoping to still catch the September cycle, but more towards the end of it.  FX!

I'm going to jump in here my FET scheduled for aug 12 was cancelled today due to a horrible response of high blood pressure and migraines to my esterace and a thick lining (18mm after 15 days on esterace) my RE is having me be cleared by my pcp whom I'm seeing tomorrow. I will likely start provera get AF and then do a 5-8 day course of esterace looking like An early sept transfer. Seems like I follow caryn everywhere (not that I'm complaining) but im looking forward to getting to know everyone else

Lisa ~ Signing the financial agreement is no small step! Hope your training goes well this morning. I'm on a low dose of Synthroid too. Just part of our drug cocktail to a BFP I guess =)

Taresa ~ Sorry you had such a bad response in August! Hopefully the new protocol works like a charm and you're PUPO in no time =)

AFM ~ Have my official protocol now and am looking at transfer on Sept 14 if all goes as it's suppose to. The BCPs were making me really sick so I switched to taking them at night. Last night was my first dose that way and I'm feeling a little icky this morning but more functional than I was on Tuesday when I had to come home from work because I felt like I was going to puke on my keyboard *LOL*

I hate that your FET was cancelled, and hope your pcp will clear you quickly.

Woo hoo Caryn! Sept 14 will be here before you know it. I'm on the same BCP and they tend to make me a little nauseous too. Toast has been my friend in the mornings. The things we do to get knocked up... :smileywink:

I'm definitely here, I got my protocol yesterday.   I start lupron Aug 20 and have my baseline u/s and labs on Aug 30.  If everything looks good then, I'll start stimming the next morning. I'm anticipating ER somewhere Sept 10-14 with a 5 day transfer since we're doing the PGD testing.

Wow Lisa, our timelines are almost identical =) I am also starting Lupron 8/20 and have my baseline labs on 8/30 (which happens to be my b-day). Fun that we are that close!!! Sorry the BCPs are making you sick too, that really stinks. You're right...what we won't do to see that elusive 2nd line *LOL*

I may be doing IVF #1 in September so I'll say Hi.  I just got approval from the insurance today and am 5 days into 2 weeks of BCPs for my antagonist protocol.  I had a high FSH result on day 3(this past monday) and also had some high thyroid results.  I'm going to chat with the RE next week to see if this is a good time to cycle or if we should wait another cycle.  I've already had some delays getting to this point so I really don't want to wait but I want the best chance for success too.  We'll see...
