Pink, I did my first Lupron shot last night, and you are right, it didn't hurt! I was so surprised at how easy it was...except when trying to get out the air bubble, I pushed a little hard and wasted some (I hope it's okay).

Tara - good luck tomorrow and welcome aboard. It is always nice to have someone to share this with.

ABeecharmer - my last BCP is Nov. 1, and then stimms after the 7th (sono and b/w). I will have ER sometime week of Nov. 17. Hope that helps! There are so many of us now! Good luck with the list!

Hey Sarah,

Great idea...

I started Lupron on the 25th, finish BCPs on Oct 29. Start the stims on Nov. 6 along with u/s and b/w. ER Nov 17-20, ET 22-25..

Texas and I are cycling really close!!!

How's everyone else doing? Let's stir things up ladies!

Yes, you should get AF within a few days of stopping the bcps.
Mine was super-light and only lasted a couple of days, I dont know if that was a result of the bcps or the lupron. Either way, it was a welcome change!

Hi ladies (and welcome to the new ladies!)

Got my massive delivery of meds this afternoon...: I really should take pictures of this stuff before I start blowing through it tomorrow.

Is it typical to have the Lupron vial filled about halfway? I swear, It looks like I will use the whole thing in one day.

Also, they sent me about 3 million of those insulin syringes. I'm definitely going to have leftovers. I'm terrified of the grey IM syringes. They look horrific and THICK. Ouch.

I have my baseline u/s and bloodwork tomorrow -it all seems so REAL now!

So, assuming that everything checks out at my appointment tomorrow, I start my first injection of Lupron (10/29) at 5 pm...then start stims 10 days later (11/7), then my hCG trigger somewhere between 11/15-17...then egg retrieval is likely to be Thanksgiving Day (11/20) and then we'll try to do a 5-day transfer on 11/25...if not, then we'll do a 3DT on 11/23.

Can't wait to see who is our next BFP!

I start my BCP tomorrow Lupron on 11/10 Suppression Check on 11/20 Stims on 11/22 with ER on 12/2-12/5 and transfer 12/7-12/10. This is my first go around with everything. I am very nervous, excited, emotional, just a ball of feelings. I am also doing acupuncture 2 times a week for 4 weeks starting this weekend.

The whole process still amazes me. Question on the BCP's does it matter what time of day I take it. I have alway taken them at night, but I don't know if it matters now.

I always told my dad that if I wasn't a mom by the time I was 30 I would use a turkey baster. This mind you when I was like 12, now its kinda coming true, and around Thanksgiving. Hope everyone is doing well. I am sure I will have lots of questions in the next little while.

Leah- sounds like things are moving along. I remember that box of meds was scary freom the first round of IVF. I did have a bunch of leftover syringes.

Krissy- Welcome.

My insurance approval should be coming through today, then the Dr's office can finally order my meds so we can get this thing started!

Leah - yes, its normal for the lupron vial to only be filled halfway. you'll be surprised by how little is actually sucked into the syringes. i was on lupron for approx 20 days (10 units at first, then 5 units per night) and didnt use all of the 2nd vial. i took a picture of all the meds before i started too - it seemed really overwhelming at the time! the IM needles do suck. my strategy was to avoid looking at them at all costs - i had dp do those injections & i kept my eyes closed!!

Krissy - welcome!! no, i dont think it matters what time you take your bcps, just take them at the same time every day. i took mine in the evenings, after work.

seems like everyone is off & running!! we are going to have SO many bfps soon!!!

Hi everyone!

Welcome Krissy!

I was listening to Oprah and Friends on XM radio last night and Dr. Oz had a lady named Dr. Domar on from Boston IVF. She said some really interesting things about IVF sucess rates. In general, its about 35%. However, she said that the emotional/mental health of the women going into the process is so important. Women who are less stressed WILL have a better chance of getting pregnant. She talked about how relaxation techniques such as meditation and yoga, acupuncture and healthy eating habits all impact individual outcomes. On her website, she also talks about how having a support group is so important. In my case, we aren't discussing this with anyone IRL so I am seeing a psychologist to help me work through this time.
She also mentioned eliminating or at least drastically cutting back on alcohol and caffeine.

So girls, relax take care of yourselves and remember that part of the process is what goes on in our minds and how we handle this stressful time!
I am trying so hard to cut out all other stresses in my life right now, be good to myself and look forward to the day that I get a BFP (and hopefully you all will too)!

Alright ladies, below is my attempt at an update list. I can't do this every month, but I thought I'd get us started. Maybe we could rotate the responsiblity? (who me? a type A personality? nooo... )

I only went back 2 weeks in the posts, so if I've missed you, let me know & I'll add you. Of course, let me know if I got something wrong & I'll fix it.

Looks like we have a lot of people cycling together for some early December BFPs!!

Wow, Sarah. Thanks so much for compiling all that info! A lot of us are only a few days apart...hopefully we'll all be holding August babies!

So, I stabbed myself. I was so anxious to get it done that I put DS in front of the TV (DH was driving home from work), drew up the Lupron, iced my belly, pinched an inch, and jammed it in. I couldn't believe how easy it was. I was so excited that I actually did it that I stood there for a few seconds staring at the syringe hanging out of my belly. I finally pushed the plunger and it was over. SO easy. Seriously...if I can do it, ANYONE can do it. It didn't even hurt at all.

I celebrated with two Kit Kats. Yum.

Kitty - GL on the insurance approval. It was the one thing that completely stressed me out to no end. Our insurance company (United Healthcare) had no idea about anything and I would get a different answer every time I called. Thankfully, everything went through (I'm assuming, since I have my meds!)...hopefully your experience is a lot less stressful.

pink - I totally agree with you. I am a psychologist by trade and have done lots of research on the effects of stress on medical procedures. I, too, am trying to eliminate many of the stresses that plague me.

Everyone else - how YOU doin'?

So I got my box o meds today. I am super excited, its becoming real. Even better was that the insurance company paid all but $180.40 of the meds. I thought I was going to have to pay almost $2200.00. They have actually paid for almost everything so far. I am sure it will come to an end at some point. Hope everyone is doing great today!!

I am having a frozen embryo transfer. I went through IVF in July and I was very active in the July IVF thread here. I was overstimmed and a high risk for OHSS so I couldn't have a transfer. My estrogen was dangerously high. So I am finally getting my transfer December 4th. I started Lupron yesterday in preparation. It's been a long road and I hope it ends in a BFP!

Good luck to you all!!! :

Quick question:

Did anyone get unbelievably sick while taking Lupron? I started my injections 3 days ago and last night and this morning I could hardly move or talk because I was/am SO nauseous (which explains me being awake and posting at 6 am on a Saturday!) I *NEVER* get nauseous. I also have a wicked sore throat and the chills. Just wondering if this is a side effect or I caught some random virus and it's a really unfortunate coincidence.

Thanks, girls. :

I have not started Lupron but I couldn't read and not give a from afar incase it is just some radom virus. I am up at 6 am as well for my first acupuncture appointment.

I have to do acupuncture for 4 weeks twice weekly. Thankfully I found someone who has saturday appointments because we have to drive 3.5 hours for it. I just keep telling yself that "It will all be worth it in the end"

Hope everyone had a great Halloween, we didn't have one trick or treater.

Have a great Saturday!!

Hi Leah,

I started Lupron last Saturday and have been having a little nauseous and a headachy. On Friday I also had the chills. I thought this was due to the fact that I had a flu shot on Wednesday. So yes, I too am not feeling that great but not as bad as you. I wish I could help, but all I can say is I feel your pain girlfriend!

Alice Domar's book "Conquering Infertility" is all about the mind/body thing and I have found it very useful.

Pinkfriend I hope you start to feel better soon. I start my lupron 1 week from tonight. I am excited, but nervous about the side effects as I work with the public all day long, and I don't know if I am nauseated I can stand some of their "odors" Right now I have menthalatum at my window for the smellier ones and that doesn't cut it sometimes.

I just keep telling myself it will all be worth it. Hope everyones November is getting off to a good start

Oh, pink...I feel ya on the nausea. Why did I not know about this side effect before beginning Lupron? Ugh! I lost 6 pounds over the weekend because I just couldn't eat anything. I am able to eat now, though...and I gained it all back. Blah.

Chris - WTG with the stims! Your egg retrieval can't be far away now. :

kitty - I am in the same boat...I was on the phone with my insurance company (and still am constantly hounding them) for the past 2 months. Nobody knows what is going on at that place. I can't get the same answer twice. I hate that part.

Rockies - GL with the BCPs...you're almost there!

crazy - how are you doing? Did you start suppression yet?

Kristina - I think Lupron affects everyone differently...the most common side effects are headache and hot flashes...which I NEVER experienced! GL!

AFM, I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for AF to show up. I have never had a 14 day LP in my entire life (except for when I was pregnant.) So, after reporting all of my symptoms to my RE (fatigue, nausea, stuffy nose, sore breasts), my RE tells me to take an HPT. BFN. Duh.

So, I just started spotting about an hour ago...I've never been so excited to see AF EVER! Off to take my Lupron...

Pink - sorry to hear you've been feeling sick with the Lupron. The BCP was way worse for me. I hope you feel better soon!

Liams- congrats on af. I'm still waiting for mine since last BCP was Saturday...does it matter if I have an AF afterwards? I'm still on Lupron which I blame for not bleeding.

samanthasmom - congrats on all the eggies....wishing you lots of baby dust!

Sorry I haven't been checking in lately... I've had a really scratchy throat and loosing my voice, which stinks when you have to teach kids, but I probably got it from one of the kiddos I teach... anyway, I go in for bw/sono and should start stimms Sat., but I'm worried that because of not feeling well, RE will delay or cancel my cycle...even though I don't really feel that bad. Have any of you had this happen before? Also, question goes out to you all about AF. Am I supposed to have AF (even if still on Lupron)? Just curious.

Good luck to everyone! Lots of follie wishes for now! BFP wishes later!

well, i'm still a follicle machine. i had another bld work and u/s this am. i has 11 on the right about 12-13 and the right side had 7 greater then 10.i feel so full that i pop my pants in the car! lol i can't even finish my dinner! i forgot feeling like this but my dh remembers!!
my estradol was 1586 and lh 1.53
not sure what that means but i go for another u/s and bld work tomorrow morning.

the lupron gave me a few hot flashes when i was taking 10u, no problems on 5u. the bcp's made my feel crappy though. i don't think they will cancell a cycle if you're not feeling well. i don't think a cold would affect anything.

am i the only one on stims right now?
