Re: October-December 2012 Cyclers!

Lauren - Glad to see that you are trying again!! So good that you are trying a totally different approach, no sense in keeping on doing the same thing that hasn't been working. And your transfer is coming right up! Exciting!!!!! :)

Re: October-December 2012 Cyclers!

Christy - The PIO shots are totally daunting at first, but not as bad as the size of the needle might lead you to believe. What size do you have, btw? Length and gauge? I started out with a 2 inch needle, got them to reduce it to 1.5 inch (I believe 22 gauge) because the longer one was just insane w...

Re: October-December 2012 Cyclers!

Hey hey! Sorry I wasn't writing for a while, believe me I was stalking. Just a lot easier for me to check in on FB from work, and nights/weekends I pretty much only use my phone which is an incredible pain to post from. I have started Lupron, baseline u/s is this Monday (at 7am yay!!), and transfer ...

Re: October-December 2012 Cyclers!

I have been so bad about keeping up with you ladies on here! I always forget that not all of you are on the FB group... This is mostly going to be an "AFM" until I get caught back up! I did get AF, and am on track for a November transfer! When I talked to the nurse she told me I was scheduled for th...

Re: October-December 2012 Cyclers!

Yay! A new thread!! :) Sunshine - My lupron also comes in a vial in a bottle. The vial comes out though. Mine supposedly is coming like that because the pharmacy is mixing it themselves due to some shortage of the pre-packaged stuff. The foil cap needs to be peeled back to reveal the normal rubber t...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

I wish my BIL could read some of these posts about adoption. He loves kids and wants them someday... But there is also a good chance of him having the same birth defect as my DH that would make having his own impossible without IVF. He is not married, but is in a committed relationship and plans to ...

Re: August 2012 Transfer Buddies

Patricia - Like Cristie I have been mostly following the FB IVF group. As you say, now that the August transfers have wrapped up we are finding ourselves all in different places. For me I am looking towards my November transfer already. (My cycle approval just went through, the nurse called to tell ...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Christy -- We have had sperm on ice since early 2009. No expiration date, as far as I know! We know he can do another surgery to get more, but he has a family member whose count has dropped from "not good" in his late 20's to "nothing" in his late 30's.... So we will hold on to these little guys unt...

Re: August 2012 Transfer Buddies

Patricia - I don't know exactly what your protocol was, though I remember a couple things that I have not heard of before like the nasal spray. But almost every woman I have talked to have a different protocol. I know my protocol changed a lot between my two fresh cycles. They changed one of my stim...

Re: August 2012 Transfer Buddies

Hi all - Yes, Patricia I am still here and OK! I actually tried to post yesterday but it didn't go through. Nothing more frustrating than writing a long post that gets lost in cyberspace somewhere! Didn't have the heart to re-type it. :) Pending approval by my RE I am looking at another FET in mid-N...

Ghost - FET hormone levels

We just got the news about our negative result for an FET this Monday, and at that time I stopped taking intramuscular progesterone shots and progesterone suppositories, and removed my estrogen patches. Late that night I started getting itchy, red patches of skin all over random parts of my body. My...

BRMommy2B - Very exciting! I hate to admit it, but I love storms. Not ones that are bad enough that people die, etc. But there is something really awesome about seeing the power of nature like that. Puts some perspective on our importance on this planet. :) Question: When you say that you went strai...

Re: August 2012 Transfer Buddies

Thank you everybody for the sympathy and well-wishes! Believe me, I know that I am already blessed to have my DS. There is a big difference between this BFN and the 2 I experienced before he was born. My biggest wish is for a BFP for those of you who have not yet had yours. Ryann - You're pregnant??...

Re: August 2012 Transfer Buddies

Just got the call I was expecting, that this cycle was a BFN. Good news is that while we planned to take Friday off for our 10 year anniversary, DH couldn't get it off so last minute this morning we both arranged to get Wednesday off -- and my RE has a cancellation for Wednesday afternoon so we can ...
