. May I join your group? I am really new to this, and have been over on another board for a while (hi Tear and sly!). I am so glad I found you! I'll be starting IVF this week, after 2 failed IUIs.
We decided to go right into IVF...I hope that's the right decision! Timing-wise it's great (we want to get pg asap, obviously). But I hope my body doesn't need a break. Actually, the doc first mentioned birth control pills. I asked him why, and he said we had to make sure we got insurance approval, and insure that I had a period. At that point I knew I wasn't pg, so I asked if we could just use the period I'd be getting in a couple of days, and he said ok! Our insurance is super-fast with approvals, so we're all set. Got my meds, approval, AF (yesterday), and I start stimming on Wed 10/27, first ultrasound on Sat 10/30. Gulp!
Needless to say, it's all a little overwhelming. I was actually pretty depressed this past week (with my BFN and feeling like OMG we really are going to need this major medical proceedure to get pregnant...we're really truly "broken" I guess
). But, now I am starting to transition to excitment. I really, really hope this works! I have some fears...that I won't grow good quality eggs, that they won't fertilize...etc. We have unexplained infertility, but a big problem has been my lining. Never over a 6 on cd13!.
So, I hope that's not too long of an introduction. I hope to be able to root for all of you with your upcoming cycles!ratgrl
So nice to follow your story.
for a strong heartbeat on Nov 5! Oh, and you mentioned Crinone. That's what I'll be on (thank goodness not the PIO shots). What is your experience. Is it worse than suppositories?Tear
- Hi love! Are you feeling rested up from the weekend? When do you think you'll start stimming (or did you?).Keria
- I can relate to feeling depressed by progessing treatments. We've gone from "all you'll need is clomid" to "IUI" to "let's just go to IVF" in only about 6 months. We're on the fast track, which I wanted, but it's hard. When do you start your IVF protocol?slylives
- Hi there! Glad to see things are progressing well. blueyezz
- How is it going? Are you still supressing? When do you start stimming?
