Re: June Cycle Buddies!

Just lots and lots of protein, and more and more protein. Gets a little tiring doesn't it. I was told to drink gatorade too, but I wondered why it's so much better than water since it has so much sodium and sodium makes you hold in more water. Oh well though, I did it last time and was sick of it al...

Re: June Cycle Buddies!

lisa, that is so strange. I am on a low dose baby aspirin starting tomorrow, I don't know for how long. My last IVF cycle I was on baby aspirin for 10 weeks, and my OB told me I could stop taking it. I don't really know what it's for either...maybe I should ask. :) Ha, novel idea!

Re: June Cycle Buddies!

lisa, I am right there with you on the transfer days. It's hard to know what is the better way to go. Also, I have wondered about the aspirin, why do they prescribe it for our cycles if it's bad to take while pregnant, it's baffling. Anyway, looking forward to getting the show on the road, starting ...

Re: June Cycle Buddies!

lisa! Congratulations! :) How exciting for you. I am curious, how many of you have or will have a 3 or 5 day transfer? I'm going to a new RE that usually does day 3 transfers but the last place I went did day 5. I personally am more comfortable waiting till day 5. Anyway, just wondering what you wil...

Re: June Cycle Buddies!

flystar, when I did my cycle last year, I had a lot of bloating from being hyperstimmed. Were your E2 numbers high? If so, you could have some fluid building, and yes it can be very very uncomfortable, in fact sometimes you have to have it drained. Eat lots of protein, and see if that helps to draw ...

Re: June Cycle Buddies!

Hi! Hope you all don't mind my popping in here. This will be my second IVF, and it looks like I will be right about on the same dates as blairwh58. I started Lupron today, and will be on 150 follistim and 1 menopur. My story is long, and it's been rough, but we are ready to try again after loss. Loo...
