Okay, i think we should close this thread and start over with a PART 2. This is my idea. I have seen it done like this before. Everybody pm me what they want in their BIO. Age, IF issues, number of previous children, number ivf attempts for them and at what age, # of attempts for this baby. Be complete but concise. Then i will copy and post them all together as an intro to the thread.
I will also include a section for out successes to date. I will keep the success updates current on the original post. We will respond to you lucky ladies about your updates in the thread as usual. But your list will be in the original post and i will update on occasion like i do the regular list. I will also start a list of our babies to go below that once we start having them.
In the recurring updates, i will have the rest of us that are still trying via what ever means we are using currently.
If this sounds good to you guys i will get to work on it next week. We drive to St. Louis tomorrow for ER on Friday. I will be very busy until then.
Renee, got her first pick on base assignments. They will be moving to a base near Seattle. So if any of you are near there you may pm her. As you know she is very busy trying to sell her condo in Hawaii and get packed for the upcoming move. All the while she is being a single parent as her husband is in the military. Thanks again, to you and your husband, for the sacrifices you make to keep the rest of us safe. That goes for everybody else who has been in or is in the military.
Tammy, i am so glad your DH is okaky. I bet the prostate biopsy was a lot of fun. YIKES!! Congrats on your great lab results.
Sisi, good luck today!!!!!!! I can't wait for an update.
Carolyn, when are you guys leaving for Prague? How exciting!!!
babyluv, what a blessing your darling daughter is well and will be home tomorrow. i am sorry the cycle didn't work. But i know a little loving from those little ones will make it all better. I can't believe you were doing ivf at the same time your DD was having surgery. Was her surgery emergent? Please keep us updated on your little one and on the adoption progresses.
Elida, glad the girls are doing great! How are your preparations coming?
NY, we have a CGH buddy group going on the SIRM site. It is not nearly as large as this group but it nice because you are not waiting it out alone.
Lulu, i don't think you could go wrong either place. They are both top tier clinics. Go to the Colorado board on IVF Connections. There are many, many women from CCRM that are very active posters on that site. You can also go to the NY board at talk with the girls using Cornell. I think you will get all the info you need on that site to make your decision.
Santa, i hope you are feeling a little better. Let us know what the doc has to say Friday.
Kat, i hope you are feeling a littler better too. Please update us after your WTF meeting Sat.
nj, i would do conventional ivf on your first cycle. You may respond well to stims. Not everybody with DOM responds poorly. The mini-stim cycles you are talking about is a very good choice for poor responders. If you get 3 follicles with $6K worth of meds with $150 of meds (clomid/femara and trigger), then it is an obvious choice. Since you only have a couple of follies to retrieve eggs from they do it with just oral medications for pain and sedation. It cuts down the cost even more. Also, cost for the embryologist/lab etc. is much cheaper. You can do at 3-4 cycles for the cost of 1 conventional cycle. It ensures that every egg available will meet a sperm and and embryo ends up in the uterus. more than 2-3 follies no matter how much meds they are on.
