Hello all, hope everyone's doing well. It's been a few slow days,aside from Sat painful evening-night. All seems to good to be true, can't believe this is really happening to us, it feels like a dream and soon I'll be awaken from it. To think we've been on this path to ttc for the past 6 years and here we are, 1day away from ET and all our faith will be tested. I hope all goes well for us for ALL of us, this has been a very exciting year and we're very THANKFUL at the opportunity that has been made available to us. We hope to be successful pt no pot matter what the outcome may be! Best wishes to you all. I'm in a dif place than I was before, I'm scared and happy and so excited to have made it this far. To be honest, when we were told that we would need help ttc i felt like such a loser, I felt that God must not think me worthy or worse a bad mother to be given the blessing of having kids. I know now that this is not the case, I learned that we are all tested and sometimes what we want the most is not the easiest to obtain, it's what you work the hardest for! Thanks to you all for providing on on place were we can talk openly about my worries and fears!! I have on on few very good friends that support me and my dh but not going thru ivf keeps the on the outside of things and though I love em to death,your support is awesome! Ok enough of the mushy stuff.. I get my final call/lab call today-should find out what time tomorrow is my ET!! Best wishes to you ALL!!
Cyncinana- I've heard that during implantation you sometimes feel cramps and burning,hope that means you'll have good news coming soon!
Take care, I'll check in later tonight or tomorrow.
We're in the middle of it, there's fire from the north, south and east and we're about 5 miles away from each side. We're very fortunate, had close call with our parents but so far so good! I kid with dh about having cabin fever. Being on bed rest is one thing, not being able to go out is really hard.
Cincynana- when is your p.test? Hope your feeling sick brings good news. I hadn't thought about having a plan incase getting pg didn't happen, I mean I thought of the posibility of that also being the result just not what I/we would do. I don't know what would be next, could we do this again? From the medical side is there a time frame you wait? Does anyone know? It didn't occur to ask my RE. From a personal side, I know we could not have kids on our own! If you don't mind me asking you all, what is next step should the test result not be a possitive one? I didn't that far ahead, Thanks for bringing up, it would be good for me as well to review and have a plan or atleast the begining of one...
I forgot to mention before, but we had 2 transfered and 11 frozen, I guess we would do it all again?, looks like since we went with the freezing option?! Hope all is well with everyone! Take care!! Best wishes to you all!
Morning mamas! Hope everyone is feeling well, or having morning sickness right now!
I was wondering if anyone knows of good IVF meditation CD's/downloads?
Someone mentioned something on a previous thread, but I can't seem to find it. I have a meditation CD for XXfertility, but if you've read my other post about neuro linguistic programming, you know I don't like the word and I think I'm liking the cd less because of the negative title.
I was thinking that it might be helpful during the ER, since I hear that can be somewhat painful. I also need something at night to calm my head Anyone else feel like they are a different person than they were before this journey started? I never suffered from depression and I certainly feel like I have all the DSM symptoms....
Have a great day day! and
Thanks for asking!
I am not on BCP. Do you know why one might be placed on BCP? (Feeling a little left out, everyone is on BCP)
Yes, my schedule seems pretty do-able and yes, I am going to bore you with it!
CD 21 of pre-procedure month(I'm CD2 today): start Lupron .2ml Lupron is a GnRh? Is that BCP?
Continue on Lupron until AF shows, generally 10-12 days after starting.
Call for ultrasound when AF shows, call for u/s after 14 days on Lupron if no AF.
Decrease Lupron to .05 ml after u/s showing suppression, start Gonal -F and menopur.
Menopur for only two days, but Gonal-F and Lupron continue until the day before HCG trigger. HCG trigger , E/R/ retrieval w/i 30 hrs, ET day 3.
Then progesterone IM and estrace (Pill) until 10 weeks pregnant.
Does that sound like what everyone else has done?
I'd be interested to hear how others are different from this schedule....
Ok, off to make a IVF calendar!
