my cycle started

It was very strange. Lately, whenever my cycle was on it's way, I would get pms symptoms about 7 to 10 days before it starts. This time it was only a few days, however, I felt more like I had pg symptoms. Last month I had the same thing (nausea, headache, etc.) and found I was pg. This month it's my cycle. Unfortunately, I got my hopes up too much, so seeing my cycle made me very sad. Anyway, I will be going in to check my fsh level just to see where it is. Then the acupuncturist can take it from there. We have one more month to try to get pg on our own, although I haven't been sticking to the instructions that the acupuncturist gave to me (I have been drinking a lot of cola, and having chocolate and all kinds of goodies)but it's the holidays. I have been taking my herbs and doing my exercise though. My DH has REALLY gone off the tracks! He's been skipping herbs, eating lots of stuff he's not supposed to, no exercise. I guess I am frustrated with that.

As far as the fertility doctor goes, in our last discussion, she told me that when I do come in for another IVF, she will only give me Gonal F. I am not sure why that is. The first time I had Gonal F and Menipure. The second time was Gonal F, Menipure, and Lupron. So why would she only give Gonal F if the other protocols didn't work? If she did mention why, I don't remember. I have a bad habit of tuning out certain things: In cases like this, I focus on the negative points.

I have a long way to go in learning how to relax and think positive.

I sure hope that 2007 brings everyone GOOD LUCK!

Sue:
Good luck to you too. I am with you on cycling, I started on the 30th. Not only am I over 40 (41), which by the way - how did that happen so fast, but my husband had a vas reversal last February. I am still hopeful though, and get a lot of hope and strentgh from all of you on this board!
Happy New Years everyone, and BFP's all around!

Sue, I just want you to know I am sending you hugs! From one who also has trouble sometimes relaxing and thinking positive!

I'm with you Christy. My DH had his VR last May. We have losts of viable swimmers, if I can just get these 40 1/2 year old ovaries to spit a good healthy egg for them, well be set.
