Re: Due Winter 2012

Hi Ladies! hope you all are doing well! BlissfulCS: As far as running goes, I didn't run for 7 weeks (all through IVF cycle) and then finally decided to start running every other day. I ran through my entire pregnancy with my son (also IVF baby)...I actually ran a lot. 20-60 miles up until 35 weeks ...

Re: Due Winter 2012

Hi Ladies!

My due date is 1/11/12...I finally had success for #2 on my fifth cycle (1 FET, 4 IVF). Just had an ultrasound today showing leg and arm buds with a heartbeat of 165!

I'm feeling pretty nauseous and nervous...keep waiting for the other shoe to drop after going through so much.

:>

Re: NEW - scared with high FSH low AFC

Hi--I was 31 (nearly 32) when I was diagnosed with DOR based on my AMH levels (1.1) and my antral follicle count (7-9). My FSH and E2 levels were normal. I am now 33 and very early into a pregnancy from my 5th IVF. Just because you have DOR does not mean that you can't get pregnant. It just means th...

Re: Special approach's did you do to get a BFP, everyone wan

I don't believe WE have anything that is within our control that impacts getting pregnant. I believe sometimes you get lucky and you find the right sperm and the right egg and the right embryo and you get pregnant. I have been through 5 fresh cycles of IVF, 1 frozen cycle of IVF. On my first cycle o...

Question about Exercise in Early Pregnancy

Hi-- I *finally* got my BFP on 5/9 after 5 cycles (4 fresh, 1 frozen) and would really like to start exercising again. I used to be a hard-core runner, but cut that down to 20 miles per week or less over the past year while doing all these treatments. While in an IVF cycle, the only exercise I do is...

Negative HPT, but High Basal Body Temperature

I am 14 day past retrieval, 9 days past 2 day transfer of two 5BB hatching blastocysts that were "great quality." (My clinic is supposedly very conservative with rating embryos). I have take 4 different HPTs today. EPT, First Response, Answer, and CVS First Response. All negative. The weird thing is...

Hi there--hope IVF works for you!

I acutally have endometritis, which is different than endometriosis. Thanks, though.

Anyone have success w/ Day 5 morulas?

Hello--

Re: Looking for November Cycle Buddies

Hi Ladies!! I'm going to be doing the microdose lupron flare protocol in November. I have a wonderful nearly two year old son (nov 5) from my first IVF cycle back in 2008. I've been trying to get pregnant for a year now. 3 clomid cycles, 1 FET (w/ leftover embies from my son's IVF cycle), 1 fresh IV...

Endometrial biopsy results: Mild, chronic endometritis

Has anyone ever gotten this diagnosis before? Had a successful pregnancy after treatment? They're thinking that I might have gotten this from my long and awful delivery w/ my son.

Re: When do you go for blasts and not 3dt?

For my most recent cycle, we did 10 u Lupron until period, then down to 5 u. During stimming, we did 150 menopur and 150 follistim for 6 days and then upped follistim to 200 for 4 days, HCG trigger and retrieval 36 hrs later. My prior cycle w/ my son, they did 75 units follistim and menopur, then up...
