IVF underway

Rather than flooding the board with multiple posts about my cycle, considering its not your usual TTCAM, I will just have this thread and update here as needed.

I had my first u/s today. The call-back nurse said to take my last BCP tonight and let AF arrive this weekend (should be brief since she said my lining was expectedly thin). I will start stimming on Monday: 175IU Follistim

My mom was always pleased when I would get B's in school. So, I imagine that if you have a solid B embryo, that's good! Ha ha ha!!! :)

I've been mentally calling them my little B students all day.

We had our FET consultation today. Planned out the protocol (long lupron) and she said I'd need more estrace and PIO support than others. PIO for the whole 2WW this time. She reassured us that the clinic's success rate with FET was 100% last year. She's sure that with 6 frosties I won't need another fresh IVF cycle. It will be another 3 weeks until I start BCP, so we're looking at early/mid Sept. I will get it this time.

I really have high hopes for your FET too. The variables are much less during an FET cycle.

Agreed. She offered doing a "natural FET" that isn't controlled w/ any meds, but I declined. I want to go with what has a proven track record of working. Also, she feels like my bladder infection this past weekend is proof of how out of balance my hormones got. Look up UTI and estrogen...what a wild link! So we're going to take it slow and really controlled.

My friend had a simiLar experience. Her fresh cycle failed and she only had one frozen embie. Well she did FET and it worked, she is now 26 week preggers. I hope it also works for you. Everything. Crossed for you.
