it can definitely happen with your first try!
as far as stimming and bloatness, I only feel bloated towards the last few days of stimming process.
I had really bad headaches on lupron too and hot flashes too.

Thanks for all the sage advice ladies! I am not doing BC, and I am waiting for AF to get the calender from my nurse (she doesn't like to make one until the date 'cause us girls are not always on time with AF!). Anyhow, I am curious if any of you did it without BC. There is no real reason my RE and I chose that route, except for my preference, and he did not disagree. I know I am going to have gonal-f pens and ovidrel, but I am not sure what we are starting out with. He said not lupron, but I forgot the name of the drug (which pisses me off). My DH also has to have MESA/TESE on the same day as the ER. I've been hearing about "sleeping sperm" from a few ladies. Does anyone have any experience with this? Are any of you having MESA/TESE on the same day as ER?
I've been "gearing up" for my 1st IVF, but just got my protocol today and I'll definitely be having my ER in April (mid/late). I start Lupron Monday (3/28) and move to stims after my period starts. Excited but scared!
Awesome! I'll keep you posted - my baseline and stims are scheduled based on whenever AF comes, so we'll see! Good luck to you!
Thought I would check in - I haven't really posted - didn't have much of an update to share.
Me, I am! Hi, I'm new to this board. My name is Hillary & I'm 39.
