Re: How many IVF transfers before pregnancy occurred for you?

I am also super lucky. My first IVF had 2 transferred on day 5 and had my daughter who is almost 4. 2nd IVF had 2 transferred on day 3 and just got a BFP on Friday! Betas are higher than with my daughter so we aren't sure if it's one or two yet. I have never had any left to freeze out of either of m...

Re: Looking for November Cycle Buddies

Hello to everyone!! Congrats on the BFPs and GL to those of you that are cycling now. Big hugs to those of you that need it. I apologize I don't post here very often. When I went thru this 5 years ago I was on these boards 24/7 it seemed like! This time around I found it hard to find the time to pos...

Re: Looking for November Cycle Buddies

Hi BlessedMom - if you ask me you most definitely are NOT being insensitive. It sounds like you already postponed your cycle once due to their loss which was a very touching thing to do! Plus what you said about insurance coverage, etc... sounds like doing this now would be best. Your SIL situation ...

Re: trying for number two--is it any easier?

hi ladies! Thought I would poke in here since I can identify with most of you. My first IVF was successful in 2006 and I never thought I would go thru it again because I got so lucky and am so blessed... I just didn't see how I could get so lucky again! Then the urge to have another baby kicked in a...

Hi ladies! :D I haven't posted in a couple of weeks. I am sailing right along in my cycle. Today is day 3 of stimms. I anticipate my ER being early next week..

Re: Looking for November Cycle Buddies

Hello everyone :) We are getting closer!! I am on day 7 of Lupron today. I take my last BCP tomorrow - thank God! No terrible side effects. Mood swings (what else is new), increased appetite and more vivid dreams seem to be it. Nothing I can't handle. Baseline is next week - 10/21- and assuming I ge...

Re: Looking for November Cycle Buddies

Hi everyone - I haven't posted in a little while. I started my Lupron shots on the 6th, am scheduled for a baseline u/s and bloodwork on 10/21 and start stimms on 10/23. I have been extremely moody and have had a crazy appetite! I want a milkshake so bad right now I can hardly stand it! Can't wait t...

Re: Looking for November Cycle Buddies

Babydreamz - hi! My RE has me on BCP for 21 days. The last 7 days overlap with Lupron. Then I am on 10 units of lupron for 17 days, then go to 5 units of lupron when I start stimming. Where I go the injection training class is included in the IVF cost (I'm out of pocket). I am sure it is different e...

Re: Looking for November Cycle Buddies

Morning ladies! Leorira11 - I am also lmao at the dildo cam comment!! Good one! I couldn't agree more that the physical stuff we endure is nothing compared to the emotional/mental strain. Hope your beta drops so you can get going with your FET. Hi MYIZZY - i start lupron next month too. Next week, a...

Re: Can i still hope ?

Absolutely you can still hope! I did not take an HPT until the night before my scheduled beta because I was so scared I would get a false BFN. It had happened to a lot of girls I was cycling with at the time. They got a BFN and cried their eyes out ony to go on to have a BFP :D I think you are still...

Re: Looking for November Cycle Buddies

YES - November IS the month!! I feel very positive about it too! SDtrying - good luck with the conception kit - that would be FABULOUS if it worked for you! For me it was always torture when AF would show up each month - even after I had my successful IVF and daughter in 2006. I finally got a natura...

Re: Insensitive Remarks that People Make and Pet Peeves

I was at a huge family gathering one time about 5 years ago - I have lots of siblings and tons of cousins and almost all of them have kids. It was well known in my family that my DH and I had been trying for 3 years with no luck. My cousin's wife (who at that time was pg with her 2nd) came and sat d...

Re: progesterone side effects?

I had all of those side effects with progesterone... bloating, sore boobs, PMS like symptoms. I would take it all as a sign that it's working... and enjoy the bigger boobs...lol
