Hi all!! :)

I am new to this Chat Room. I wasn't quite sure where to start! I have been looking at some of your posts and i see a lot of 'relatable' stories. I also noticed quite a few happy ladies with their BFP's!! Woo hoo!!! Congrats!! My DH and i are going for our very 1st IVF in Octobers cycle after LOTS of failed Clomid cycles and 3 failed IUI's.

Anyone who would like to join me through this part of our journey..please do!!

Good luck all!!

I'm blowing *Baby Dust* Kisses!!!

Hi everyone,
Tomorrow I will be starting my birth control pills for 2 weeks. My egg retrieval will take place the week of the 29th. It is a miracle my husband and I even have this chance. I have been battling cervical cancer since January.
I was going to have a hysterectomy a month ago and all the sudden the cancer was under control. We were sure we would never have a child of our own. I am so excited, but also really afraid that this may be our only chance.
Good luck with everything!!! I hope we all get what we want!!!!

I am in So Cal...San Diego to be exact. I am with Dr. Arlene Morales. She is a little quirky but really nice. She is really respected in the RE community...... is always in a lot of studies etc......

fhl-i bet you're glad to be done with bcp! i hate them! throughout this process i put on and lose 7-10 lbs. i've read that it common. when do you start your stimming?

wbam & gekasbaby- nice to have people in your area going through the same thing and comparing notes on drs. is nice too.
do you ladies know yet when your dates are?

My 1st IVF Also

Post by washingtonda » Thu Sep 27, 2007 1:19 pm

I just started my BC today for 14 days. I am scehduled to start Lupron injections on October 8th with a possible retrieval on 27 October. We are doing the Shared Risk and have to use ICSI because of DH sperm morphology.

I've been taking the prenatals faithfully for the past month and have been doing Accupuncture for the past three weeks (once a week).

I'm hoping we all get BFPs!!!!
