First timer from Texas

Postby jenamos » Thu Apr 20, 2006 12:54 am

Hi there. My name is Jen and I am from Dallas, TX. Survived the first (and hopefully only) IVF Cycle. Had egg retrieval Friday 4/14 and following ICSI transferred 3 embryos on Mon 4/17. I find out on the 28th whether or not they took. How does one survive this waiting. It is hard to think of anything else. Would love some advice from others who have done it!

Thanks and I look forward from hearing from you all...or as we Texans say "Ya'll".

Hi Jennifer. Welcome to this site! I am from Ohio but I believe there are alot of girls from Texas here too - as well as from countries around the world! You will find lots and lots of support and info here. Go to the General Forum and you will find several threads with women currently on the 2ww (two week wait before test day).

I was just on it last week and it is very difficult - that is for sure. I spent time with friends, buried myself in my work, rented some good movies, and read a good book. It wasnt easy - I was obsessing over every little cramp and ache in my body!

The best thing you can do is try to stay calm and relax. Test day will be here before you know it - then you will be on another wait for your first scan! Seems like it never ends - but it will all be worth it!

Good luck :D

What part of TX are you from? Way to go...I see that you got yourself a younger man also...tee hee!

I have been feeling not so good the past couple of days with some spotting and cramping.

I am so anxious about Friday's test that it is causing me to feel like I am going to puke at any moment! This is not fun at all. I wish that I could just go to sleep and wake up in time to go take the blood test.

I wish you lots of luck also. This board is such a lifesaver! Don't know how I would be making it right now without it! :)

Thank you for checking on me. I appreciate it more than you could know. My friends have not been calling me because i guess they don't know what to say because they have not been through this...that and they are giving my hubby and I time to process all of this.

We have an appt. with our Doc on Friday. Don't feel like another try is in the cards for us because of the $. It just isn't there. :(

Do you know how long you have to wait before you go through another IVF cycle after one attempt? I was just curious.

Hope you are doing well.

Love,
Jen from TX

Thank you for your email. Went to the doctor today to see about trying again. He was not optimistic. I am somewhat bummed out...but did not hear anything that I was not expecting to hear. Thank you for your kind words.

Hope all is well with you.

Kindest regards,
