So we have decided to do IVF. I'm kind of freaked out but excited. I start BCP in September and we will go from there. Any advice from you gals that have been down this road?

Jaime - how exciting for you and DH!!!! It's an exciting time for you yet it can get a bit overwhelming all at the same time. You've been through a lot with you IUI's so I think you'll do really well with IVF - you know how to give yourself injections and to me, that was the scariest thing to overcome. Trust your doctors and but be your own advocate - if you don't understand something or question what you hear/see, then ask!

It is very "cookbook", just follow the protocol. I don't know how responsive your ovaries are, but if you are a good responder or are sensitive to follicles usually, get ready for some discomfort. I had 40+ follicles and with the swelling, pain, dizziness...there's no way I could have been working. Be gentle with yourself - let DH take care of you. Take some days off before and after ER if you can - you won't want to work anyway. Drink lots of fluids, like an obscene amount. Get ready to gain up to 10lbs, but it will go away after. Relax as much as possible. And GOOD LUCK!

Well you have certainly been through enough IUI's and believe me, I know how that feels! GL! I am so jealous!
