Hoping for a Christmas Miracle

Postby mlackey » Tue Nov 23, 2010 7:14 pm

It is day 5 of my 1st IVF cycle and loosly mapping it out we should have the results of our pregnancy test around the 20th of December. I'm hoping for a Christmas Miracle! Anyone else going to hear before the end of December?
I am new to IVF and new to this forum. I have done 2 IUI's which were unsuccessful and am heading into the IVF process with nerves and excitment. Just started the follicle stimulating hormone (2 doses in) and have been on Lupron injections for 2 weeks. Heading back for an ultrasound and bloodwork tomorrow to see if there has been any action. Feeling good right now but wonder how the two weeks of waiting might be when there is nothing left to do but hope and pray. Hoping to find someone to wait that time out with here on this site. Any other Christmas miracles in the works?

Three more days to wait and for sure it is the HARDEST PART of this whole thing. Every little cramp sends me into a tailspin of thoughts and emotions. Can't help but be scared for the worse despite the fact that I am well aware of the benefits of positive thinking. I do think positively but also spend and equal amount of time in deep worry and dread for the negative. Any tips on how to remain focused on the positive? I would love to hear them!

Yes then no. Positive pregnancy test on Friday, Dec. 17th :)
Almost double the pregnancy hormone in Sunday, the 19th's test :D
Then misscarraige on Thursday December 23rd :cry:
Been a difficult few days.
We have one frozen blastocyst, does anyone have success stories to share with frozen embryos? Anyone hear any statistics on the success rates? Right now I don't feel very optomistic and I don't want to start again until some positivity and excitement replaces the sadness.

From your profile it looks as though you are on an IUI attempt? Is that correct? Do you have results?
Thanks for your response.
