Carolyn:

I am starting my second FET in July. Very excited! We were to start in June, but we had some BW done in the hopes of figuring out why we are miscarrying and we probably won't get the results back in time. Plus, I've started acupuncture and want to give it a little more time to work.

Looking forward to this thread.
Me 33 - DH 43
2nd FET - 12/1/08
Beta #1 - 527; Beta #2 - 2806
U/S #1 - 1/2/09 - TWINS!
3/17/09 - BOYS!

Hi,

If AF ever comes, I should start my down regiment the first week in June. So my dates should be closer to those women on this board. They are changing up my protocol this month so I am interested in finding out exactly how long I am going to be on Lupron and how long I will stim. They will give me my official schedule once AF fully gets here.

Just can't wait for that fun filled month of shots, appointments and craziness.

Good luck to all,
Chris

Hey Carolyn :)

Just saw the thread started by you and thought that I should join it. I still have to figure out the dates.

Well down on those shots....I know you are my brave girl. :) I am already recieving tremnedous PMA vibes fm you.

My appointment with RE is on Wednesday, then will come to know the future course. I have no frosties left, so will have to go for a fresh cycle.

Anyway, trying to 'reconsolidate' myself for this one.

On another note I have gained some weight especially around my tummy. I am worried if it will hamper my chances in the coming cycle. What should be done to reduce a little bit?

My wishes to Chris and cocosmamma.

Hi Sonu

So glad you are planning the next cycle - would be great to cycle with ou again - I have just done loads of exercise to reduce weight and watched what I ate

Good luck for appointment on Wednesday - let us know how you get on - will you start when AF next arrives??

love and hugs

Hi, I will be starting my 3rd IVF in June. I just had a hysteroscopy and was wondering if it will mess with my cycle any, or should I expect to start at the usual time? Thanks for any input, and good luck to everyone.

Hi everyone,

brit1612, I don't think the hysteroscopy should throw off your cycle at all. I know I bleed a little after the procedure but it didn't do anything to my cycle.

sonu911 - How many IVF/FET cycles have you done? I have started 1 IVF cycle but it was canceled. I will start my 2nd in June.

Wishfull27 - I am 35 and have been ttc for 3 years. I live in Illinois, just outside of St. Louis, Mo. We have unexplained infertility which drives me nuts. I just wish I knew why I am not getting PG. I should be hearing from my RE this week to find out my official schedule for June.

Congrats on the weight loss. I started using a personal trainer in March. I haven't lost any weight because I also need to change my diet but at least I am getting my heart pumping 3 times a week. Last cycle I stopped working out after doing 1 week of stims. I will probably do the same thing this cycle. I have always thought that possibly my weight might be an issue but my RE hasn't said anything about it. My BMI is around 31.

cocosmomma - good luck with the AP. I thought about doing that but don't have the extra money. Plus, I hate appointments so that would be something else I would have to be committed to.

Hi Brit

Sorry can't help you with that one -never had one - why did you need to have that? - did they find anything from it that will help with future cycles??

Hi chris

Nothing worse than I can imagine than unexplained - is this your first IVF cycle - or have you tried IUI ??

Hello! Count me in for the June/July cycle.

My last cycle (April/May) didn't make it to transfer. Risk of OHSS was too high. But, I have a lot of ice babies, so we're going to try a FET.

I'm starting BCP today. The transfer is scheduled for July 3.

Thanks for starting this thread, Carolyn.

Hi, Chris. I do hope some of the April/May thread success carries over for us.

cocosmomma, sonu911, nice to meet you. :)

wishfull27 - I did 3 IUI's with clomid before starting IVF. Then in April/March I started an IVF cycle but it was canceled due to a dominate follicle taking over, I then did an IUI again.

What is your schedule and what drug's will you be doing.


Chris

Wishfull- We have male factor inf. but my doctor wanted to do the proceedure just to be sure that there was not anything with me that could be affecting the outcome. He removed a small polyp but he said that it was not anything that would have changed the outcome of my cycle.

to have fun- thanks for the input - I was hoping it would not mess with my cycle, that way I could get started as soon as possible.

Hey All

A warm hello to all my buddies here.

I went to the doc today, the aptt was fine. The clinic was celebrating 1000th BFP...:) My BFP number was 987!!! Today the ticker was showing 1007. But can anyone tell me who keeps the count of the BFPs turning into BFNs.

I will be starting BCP from Saturday and down regging from the later next week. The approx date for ER and ET is scheduled in the end of June.
So, here I begin another journey. :D!!! My 4th ICSI!!

I am acquainted with Carolyn with whom I cycled in September last year. I am lucky to have her as my special buddy!! :)
Here's my short introduction for my new buddies here.

I have been married for almost 10 years and ttc for 6 years. Last year in Feb we discovered that my DH has malefactor issue. He has varioccle (sp!!) After that we did 1 IUI and 3 ICSI in March, May, July and Septemberrespectively. I had no frosties left from the first two cycles but luckily was blessed with 8 frosties in the 3rd cycle of ICSI. Needless to say all these attempts were unsuccessful.

Then we decided to take a break which was a good decision and did FET in this April with our 3 embabies and got our first ever BFP. Unfortunately I miscarried in my 8th week. I saw my little one's heart beating (70 bpm which is slow!!) in one scan and a week later there was nothing. My little fighter decided to be in God's arms. Doctors term it as chromosomal abnormality.

I have decided that I will not give up and hence started another journey.
And I hope this is my cycle and I will have my angel/s in my arms very soon.

(((HUGS))) and prayers.
