Newbie just about to begin IVF right after Christmas

Postby catzie5 » Fri Oct 29, 2010 7:07 pm

Hi everyone

I just wanted to introduce myself to everyone. I am new to this site and the whole IVF thing!! I am 31 have totally abnormal cycles, just found out have poly-cystic ovaries & insulin resistance. Dr just put me on Glumetza for the IR - is anyone else on this? I am not exactly sure the role it is going to play in the whole IVF process!! Just had a scan done which showed my uterus looking like it will be a good little home :lol:

My huband is 45 and had his vascectomy reversed last year however no sperm count. Luckily we have 5 viable vials in storage. We are planning on starting our first IVF cycle right after Christmas and I just feel a little alone and scared in the whole process. My husband and I are travelling between now and the start of December and the lab closes over Christmas so we have to wait until after - which is kinda killing me a little!

We both know that we want to have a baby and share that blessing but I am feeling very anxious literally about everything. Is it the right thing to do, what if it won't work, what if I won't be a good mother etc.etc. Does anyone else suffer from feeling this way?

I was recommended to this site and it's nice to see so many ladies are going through this also.

Good luck & blessings to each & every one of you.

I'm also new to the board but not IVF. I had a tubal ligation when I was 23 and have since had it reversed so I have been blessed with 2 beautiful children already but of course an unplanned divorce and a fiance who has no children of his own has lead me to the reversal and IVF. I had a fresh cycle back in 2007 and an FET. Both cycles had great embies and doctor still says I should have been pregnant and that I was just unlucky. :evil: I've had 2 pregnancies since then but both ended in early miscarriages (chemicals). We just tried another cycle last month but unfortunely I didn't respond well to meds and only got one good embie and they put it in on day 2 and of course it failed. During this last cycle one of the ultrasound techs kept seeing a possible polyp so last week had further testing and low and behold I have a pretty big polyp and having surgery to remove it next week and hopefully if all goes well will cycle right after x-mas.

I wish everyone success and really hope all of us get our babies and hope that 2011 is our year. :mrgreen:
