Hi there
Just saw your post and thought this link may help. http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=906941
There was another thread, but crazyrunningmama started a summer one for us. I haven't been posting for a while, trying to take a bit of a chill out this cycle - obviously not working then! See you over there!

Good luck to all you IVF cyclers, looks like I'll be along here in late summer, unless a miracle happens before that!

Hey, me too! Should we start a "July IVF" thread or hang onto this one? The process starts in June (I am expecting to start BCP's around the 11th when AF shows up), but ER and ET will be in July for me too. Or maybe that is the case with some of the other people already on this thread?

Hope all is going well for you ladies.

Other than that I am feeling good and I am optimistic.
: wishing you the happiest of betas, DM! I;m excited to hear and praying for ya.

I think I'm in for July/August but learning alot from all of you while I wait, and struggle to get my caffeine consumption under control. WE'll be at CCRM too. I forget who else is doing it there.

crazyrunningmama - I'm the same way... my PMS symptoms start a week to a week and 1/2 ahead of time... which makes it really hard sometimes to figure out when she'll come!!

So, I got the call yesterday from the office, and I got information that stressed dh and me out, although I think that I really knew it was going to happen this way. We were going to take a vaca to FL to see his Aunt and Uncle, and in fact we are supposed to be driving his Aunt back to FL. All this was going to fall during the week of our 6 year Wedding Anniversary (june 22 is 6 yrs for us). So, can you guess where I'm going?

I started BCP's last night, and I'll take them through the 19th, starting my higher dose of lupron on the 13th. Then, of course, once I have a bleed I have to get my baseline u/s... which I'm figuring my bleed will probably come the 22 or 23rd based on my past history w/bcp's. We were supposed to leave for FL early morning the 21st. So, now I have no idea what I'm going to do. They're thinking starting stims on the 26th, and my first u/s will be on day 3 b/c of all my past probs, which means the 29th, but that's a Sunday, so probably the 28th or 30th.

We were really looking forward to this vacation. We both needed it, not just away from the stresses of work and home, but of course, the stress that we've been under with IF and IVF. BUT, the question that everyone but no one wants to ask? Neither one of us is really willing to put off a cycle. With all that we've been through (IVF starting back in Jan, and still not even an ER or ET!!!) we just can't stand the thought of taking a cycle off.... especially since my cycle's run about 5.5 to 6 weeks, depending... which would put me off until august for starting the next cycle of IVF, and that is if everything timed right.... so we mentioned it without really saying those words and agreed that the situation sucks because we don't want to take off a cycle or not take a vacation.... I just don't know what to do, and dh was SOOOO upset last night. ::

He blames himself for us even going through this, and the way he was acting last night I was blaming myself for the timing of my cycle. Stupid, right? I just feel so out of control and it made me feel SOOOO much worse when I realized how badly he was taking it and stressing out about it. There's no winning combination here... and then I can't help but think to myself, what if we don't do vacation and then it gets canceled again because I fly tooo high? Then what? We're out on both things!!!!!!

IF SUCKS.

Hope4light I don't know what to say except, i understand, as i am sure we all do.
Last year I had to cancel a trip to see my nephew graduate from college because of possible IUI which didn't happen because of OHSS. For me it feels like the timing happens during holidays or long made plans.
IF does suck! :

That would be me Is this your first time working with them? I had my consult with Schoolcraft in November, he did a lap/hyst just before xmas for some renovation and polyp removal and now we're cleared for take off.

I'll be July for ER & ET also. I figure there will be others who overlap and the more the merrier

Hope4light - I can completely relate. All my siblings and my mom are getting together at the lake the week after July 4th. Of course it ended up falling smack in the middle of everything. My mom offered to change things, but with everyone's schedules coordinated and flights already booked it just didn't seem right. I'm trying to comfort myself with the thought and hope that next year we'll take the baby with us.

I'm wondering though if you might be able to find a IF clinic in FL that could do your u/s and get the results to your RE? I'll be getting my u/s done locally before flying out to CO. I'm working with our local clinic here to have the u/s done. I scheduled a consult with the RE here to make sure they'd be willing to do that, but he told me I didn't even need to be a patient. He said that some of their patients are from out of town and other clinics do their initial u/s. I don't know of that might help you or not. Might be worth a little checking into at the very least.

DM - Sending you high beta thoughts!! Hope the days until Weds pass quickly.

Crazyrunningmama:

We could start a new thread. I don't have all my dates yet but we are aiming for the ER and ET to be during the last week in July because I have that week off (my office is closing). When I get my AF we will get some more solid dates.

I think a lot of us on this thread will be dong the ER and ET in July. I too start the stims in June, but won't finish until July and possible have the beta in the beginning of August. It's amazing how long this process takes. Personally, I'd love to keep us all together, then we can share with those that have already begun stimming and continue thru July for those just starting bcp's.

Hey gals, I started a thread over on Talk Amongst Yourselves to gather favorite funny movies. I thought that would be a good way to pass the time during post embryo transfer bedrest

I'm on my last week of bcp's. I think I've made peace with IVF and this morning made sure to let my dh know that I needed him to support me and make peace as well, since I know I"ll need him. We talked about our plans and I realized that a lot is riding on this cycle. We're talking about changes in jobs and such, which depend on my being pregnant to really work out. Also, the pressure is on since we've now moved into our much larger house, which is definatley too big without the kids to fill it up.

I got all my meds last Friday. It was thrilling, but we still haven't opened the box, and man is that box big! Tonight we're planning on doing inventory to make sure we have everything. We need to do this after dd is in bed since the last thing we need is her trying to imitate me taking shots (as she's in this imitation stage for everything). Monday I also have a hot date with Lupon. Woo hoo!

DM630 - I am so sorry. There are no words for your pain. But we are here for you.

DM - I am so sorry. Take good care of yourself
post #99 of 279
Thank you for all of the support.
We are meeting with the RE next week for a follow up. We will be taking a break for a while. I had found out yesterday that they were unable to freeze any embryos due to poor quality. We don't have the 7,000 for a another cycle right now. So we are going to have to take this time to regroup.
I am going to continue to follow this thread and cheering you all on.
