Mommielove - I'm leaving you in here since the Feb IVf thread is pretty dead. We're still rooting for you! Do you know when your beta is?

As for me, this is ivf try #3. The only difference this cycle is a larger stim dosage to start. I'm prayin' I don't overstim with it. Just takin' it a day at a time for now.

Also, the iui gals have welcomed all ivfers on their threads (thanks gals ) so feel free to join one or both, as you feel led.

Finally, if any ivf grads are lurking...would you mind if we add you to the first page? It's always inspirational to see those that have gone before. If you want to be added, just provide your due date (or due month) in a post or pm me and I'll add it to the first page. Thanks!

Thanks so much for starting a IVF thread!!

I will be starting my IVF cycle end of March. I am waiting for my meds to come through. I should be getting all my meds shipped by next week. I am awaiting insurance approval.

I am awaiting anxiously to get started but very nervous of course.

I think if all goes well I will be on lupron towards the end of the month.

Sarah - I'm so excited for your postive and can't wait for the u/s!! I'll be thrilled to add you to graduates! Please hang around as long as you want, personally, i don't think I'll be joining a ddc before 2nd trimester next time around. Too hard to leave if things don't work out.

Wtg - So glad to have you with us, well not glad you need ivf, but glad you can support us and us support you. My meds are due today. So strange how everyone is different: 1st I need insurance approval, then the schedule from the doc, then the meds can be ordered. I'll just add you to Suppression without a date until you know.

I revised "lupron" to "suppression" because I believe some ladies use a nasal spray instead of lupron for suppression.

Thanks J's Mom. I'll officially join after my u/s today, hoping everything checks out.

Wtng, Great to have you on board!

Sarah, Thanks for staying to cheerlead. And : for your bfp. I watched you in your first ivf thread and am hoping and praying this pregnancy is healthy and very smooth. Your due date is my birthday, btw! I LOVE my birthday (who doesn't) but I mean love the time when it falls.

How are you feeling Mommielove?

It's the darndest thing. Yesterday it looked like it was going away in the morning, didn't even put a liner in. Then in the grocery store, I had like a geyser of blood...it just came all at once. Great. Then nothing. Then the geyser again. More nothing at night.
So far today it looks like it's going away again.

booja'smom--welcome!! Oh its great to have more people here. Not the aspect of us having to do IVF but you know what I mean. I think Freedom Pharmacy is where my doc is ordering from. I think they are an online company. They seem to be reasonable.

I'll be happy to add you! I go with Schraft's, just because that's thru my insurance. If you're not using insurance, I might actually suggest you either use the search tool for "ivf meds" or start a new thread. I know other's have talked about how to get the best deal. Good luck!

Okay, just got back from u/s. As of now, bleeding is stopped. Two cysts are there but they have shrunk significantly, one is 12mm and the other 15mm and it is okay to start. I begin stimming this Saturday. I can't believe it. I didn't think this was going to happen. My blood pressure was through the roof though so my first order of business is to settle, let all the crazies start to go and just find my hummmmmm again.

J's Mom, you can put me down for start stimming 3/7

Can't believe I am moving forward after all this time! :

I was wondering should I be taking DHEA, wheat grass and whey protein to increase the quality of my eggs. I have 2 bottles of DHEA at home but worried about taking them. Are you gals doing anything in prep for IVF?

I know I need to do acupuncture, meditation cds, and warm foot soaks. Anything else I'm missing here.

Poet I think you mentioned some kind of drink you do, sambuca?

Jennifer - Yeah for proceeding!! You can be the 1st to get their bfp! I'll add you to the list.

Wtg - I think DHEA is a part of many prenatals, so great! I don't know anything about wheat grass, but I do think I heard that whey protein is not recommended during pregnancy. You might want to check that out.

gracious, this board is hoppin' today!

b's mom - i used freedom fertility pharmacy and was very happy with their service and prices (as happy as you can be with shelling out thousands for meds!)

poet - : so glad the u/s yielded good news!! hooray for starting stims!!

wtg - i heard a high-protein diet helps egg development. i dont know if its true or not, but i tried to be conscious of that during my stim period (at least it gave me something to focus on to feel like i was helping). are you listening to the anji ivf meditations?

snowbell - : hi! always good to "see" you!

abeecharmer--I got tons of cds from amazon for guided imaginery. I went to crazy last week ordering them. I am finding ways to stay positive and calm throughout all of this. I was thinking about anji. I might try them out also. I have to increase my protein somehow since I am a veggie.

Hi Everyone! I am so glad I found you all again! I also feel way more comfortable with you lovely ladies! Thanks for letting me stick around. My EDD 11/5 and I have my 1st u/s on March 12th at exactly 6 weeks. Most of you probably remember I over-stimmed E2 > 6000 and transferred 2 beautiful embies. Somehow my body has been managing really well. I am down 5 pounds from my peak and other than slight dehydration I haven't had any major problems. Not exactly sure how I have avoided severe OHSS, but I am not letting my guard down yet.

Julia's Mom - Thanks for starting this new thread. I am very excited for your cycle!

Poet - Great news today :

Lucky - I am SO HAPPY you are back! Are you still going to Dr. S?

B's Mom - We didn't have any insurance coverage on the meds and went through Ascend pharmacy in Portland, Maine. I am not sure what stim you are using, but I was on Bravelle and they offered a "discount card" annual fee was $20 or something and it saved me HALF on my meds. For everything it was *only* $1600.

Wtg - I am glad you are moving forward with IVF. With everything you have been through, it is great you are 1 step closer to your baby. I am very hopeful for your cycle!

Abeecharmer - I have been lurking on the FET boards...so I guess I finally get to say hi

Snowbell - Sounds like everything is going well with you!!

Mommielove - When is your beta? Keep us posted!!!!


Added: BTW, I am scared out of my mind that the baby(ies) aren't there anymore. Nothing has happened to make me think that, but I can't help but thinking that I am not sick enough with OHSS to actually be pregnant. The waiting for the u/s is way harder for me than the wait before the beta.

With my DD I called the clinic one morning, practically in tears, because I was no longer nauseaus and my breasts weren't sore. I was so sure that something was wrong :. Thankfully, they didn't laugh at me (at least while I was on the phone). Needless to say, the pregnancy was fine. I think the stress is normal, especially after all you've been thru to get to this point. Here's some good vibes to keep you strong until the u/s. :

p.s. I'm a veggie too! Although, I do eat eggs & fish (rarely), so really it's just the meat that I avoid completely. I did have an Indian co-worker (no meat, fish, anything grown underground and I forget if she could have dairy). Anyway, she did ivf and had a successful twin pregnancy, although I do remember her dr prescribing a couple of "ensures" each day during the beginning of the pregnancy when protein is so important.

Belly Bean - ::: Super happy for your BFP!! It's very inspiring to me for so many reasons (in case everyone else doesnt know, bellybean and i just happen to have the same RE - we found out on the Feb IVF thread, what are the odds?!) I can just imagine how you feel waiting for your US! Hang in there, stay positive!

Poet - : YAY STIMS! Glad you got thru the flow scare!

To all you veggies, I'm in the : tribe, too! I was macrobiotic but have added fish and eggs on the rec of my acupuncturist. She said that trad chinese med fertility diets are rich in fish and eggs. I dont do any dairy at all, so I guess I do need those.

Here's to our SPRING BFPs!!!

Thank you all so much for the info ladies. looks like a have a lot of research in front of me. But what else is new with this process. My meds right now are around 4K so If I can get them for 1600 that would be great !!!!

Belly Bean - Congrats : Hope you feel better!

Poet: Congrats :

wtg4miracle: My IVf prep is a lot of acupuncture, Herbs, Flax, Multivitamins, D3, Extra Greens, Omega 3, OPC 100, and I have to try to eat as much protein as possible but not soy based because of the estrogen... Out of all your meditation Cd any that you can recommend?

Hope you are all keeping well. Happy Friday

We have a veggie movement going on here. I thought I was the only one around here. I just hope it doesn't mean anything, ykwim.

Well I just forked over $2k for my meds. Insurance refused to pay anything related to IVF.

So far what I know is that I will not be on bcp. I will start lupron on cd21. Still unknown until cd1 happens. It should be anyday now. The pharmacy called to confirm a few details and I asked which meds the doc put me on. Bravelle. I was shocked to hear this. I thought all along they would use Gonal-F. I feel kind of disappointed in this. I will be calling next week to the office what the reasoning behind Bravelle.

Has anyone used Bravelle before? Any info would be great.

Help:Any tidbits on how to appeal the process for my medication request. They sent a letter home today saying I can appeal their decision on the denial of the meds. How can I word it right so they should pay. They would have paid for 6 cycles of IUI with injs but since darn tubes are blocked I can only do IVF logically. (i didn' ask for my tubes to be blocked) My insurance will pay for me to have tubal surgery I beleive. This is stupid, why pay $15k for surgery with only 15% chance of success vs $2k IVF with 30% chance. Please help me word what I should say to these unept insurance people.


boojasmom--one of the cds I just started listening to is, I think its called Journeys Guided Meditations Help with Fertility from Belleruth Naparstek . It talks about the soul of the bay coming to you. Its great. I will let you know about the others once I get to them.

Wtg - I used Bravelle! I produced lots of follies and mature eggies, plus the best part is all the shots were sub-q. It was a relief for me since I could do all the shots myself (in the stomach) and they were relatively painless...but I started getting anxious and using ice towards the end.

Well after a total meltdown I called the clinic and asked for a Beta today. When I called to get the results, they put me on hold for like 5 min while they got the doctor. It made me really nervous since I thought the nurse would feel fine giving out "good" news, and having the doctor would mean "bad" news. Anyway, beta was 2158, which is a 51.6 hour doubling rate (just enough to make me slightly worried, but relatively much calmer). My RE was really nice though and said my thinking made perfect sense. I should be really sick from OHSS if I am pregnant. He can't explain why I am doing so well, but said to consider myself very lucky (for now anyway).

Bellybean--how many days dpo are you? I hope everything is alright. I am always thinking as long as the number is increasing you should be alright. Its good to know that your doc started you on bravelle. Just let us know how you are doing.

AFM- CD1, so I will start in 21 days for Lupron. March 27th I will begin the process unless some other stupid thing happens. I am not on bcp since they said I am regular.

Me 39 Dh 44 IVF #1 Failed--only 3 eggs retrieved out of 9 follicles. ET:1-4cell severe fragmentation. Planning for next cycle. VERY DEVASTATED
