IVF, Take Two

Hey, gang -- I'm trying IVF again. I didn't post during our first try and we weren't successful, so I'm counting on the positive energy of this board to help with this go-'round!

There's been a bit of a hiccup. I was supposed to start the estrogen priming protocol tomorrow (CD 21). However, AF had other ideas and showed up today. What the what?!? And get this: my RE's lab is shutting down for a month for its biannual maintenance, meaning we wouldn't be able to try again until July (an eternity!).

The good news: the doc is going to try a different but similarly aggressive protocol that will take less time, so we can start this week as planned. I'll find out the details tomorrow when I go in for blood work.

So that's my story. I'll definitely keep y'all posted -- and would welcome any P&PTs, cheerleading, crossed fingers or whatever nice thoughts you can send my way. I'll send some back to you, too!

You're going to have to do what I'm having to do and that's rely on the power of positive thinking.

Thanks, Susan. Your support really does make me feel better. Team Susan will prevail! I'll let you know how things look on Friday.

And hey, they only saw five follies at all my ultrasounds last time, and I ended up with six eggs. So maybe some hidden ones will turn up!

And don't forget Susan CB, it's the quality of the eggs that count, not the quantity!!!

Thank you, Laurie. I had fewer antral follicles last time around and ended up with two transferable embies -- including one that almost made it. So I should look at six as a decent number.

Wow, 125 days until baby! I am so excited for you.

Hey Susan, all I can do is agree with everyone else: think positive, quality not quantity and two IVFs seem to be about average to get PG. You go girl...fingers and everything crossed for you.

Thanks, Sandy and Krista. I can't even say how much your cheering helps. Now that I am back on the meds I am thinking, "Yeah, we can make this happen."
