Re: IVF clinics in NYC

Hi Rosario- I am from NY. And have spent the last 2 yrs at fertility clinics. Alot of them are rather impersonal but I found a particular DR who has his own practice. While Nothing ever worked for me (6 IUIs, 3 IVFs), I do believe the DR did his best. He spent alot of time with me, ran all the tests...

Re: Looking for January 2011 Cycle Buddies

Hopingon- so sorry for your news. It is hard to hear and accept, especially after all we have been thru. Usually the DR wants you to take a month off before trying another cycle. good luck to you next time. Kerri- that's alot of eggs! Keeping my fingers crossed. Dallas- that is excellent news. I am ...

Re: Looking for January 2011 Cycle Buddies

Thanks for the kind thoughts. Sorry for you summit as well. Will you continue with IVF? Paying for it is rough (my insurance didn't cover any) but you may find drs who will give " discounts" and even other women that will donate their remaining Stims/ drugs. Which does help. Good luck to you Egg and...

Re: Looking for January 2011 Cycle Buddies

Ladies- I used one of the digital preg test this morning. I got a "not pregnant". I am devastated. Trying to convince myself that it was too early or i should have not used digital, but the faint lines test. But am I just kidding myself? These digital testa are supposed to be accurate up to 5 days b...

Re: Looking for January 2011 Cycle Buddies

Egg- I had some implantation bleeding today as well. Barely noticeable but light pink when I wiped. I guess I wasn't expecting that this late since I am at 12 days post retrieval and I thought implantation occurred between day 6-10. Oh well, I am taking it as a good sign. Still debating whether to t...

Re: Looking for January 2011 Cycle Buddies

Hey Dallas/egg- I have always given the shot in the bum. DH helps. At first we used ice, then massaging afterwards. Now, I hav a numbing spray (was given this when I had to go on a work trip and forced to do the shot on myself). The numbing spray really works well. It still sore at times but no limp...

Re: Looking for January 2011 Cycle Buddies

Hey Dallas- I think it is a good idea to take off work that day. Our first IVF turned out neg. and we were so shocked and I was sobbing in the dr office. I did go to work afterwards but was so upset that I didn't get anything done and was just a mess. Don't go by this site. I have 2 friends that got...

Re: Looking for January 2011 Cycle Buddies

hi Ladies- a chemical pregnancy means that you lose the pregnancy within a couple of weeks. most women don't even know that they were pregnant because it happens before 5-6 weeks of pregnancy. this has happened to me twice. supossedly, the chromosomes were abnormal and this is the bodys way to termi...

Re: Looking for January 2011 Cycle Buddies

Hi everyone- thanks for the positive thoughts Kerri- I am 5 days post transfer. I think I can do a preg test in another 6 days? By then I will be on vacation with hubby.

Re: Looking for January 2011 Cycle Buddies

Good luck Kerri. I was sick once during the Stims as well and I think as long as you don't run a fever you will be fine. Just keep in contact with your dr. And good luck! I am in the 2ww. Yesterday morning I experienced really severe and sharp shooting pains down low. I know people say this sometime...
