Hello ladies out there. I am 29 yrs old my hubby 28. We are currently going through our 2nd ivf cycle. Our last cycle ended in miscarriage unfortuanately
!!! We have suffered 4 losses starting with our first Sept 3, 2004
. We conceived naturally our first time, the second and third with clomid, and of course the fourth with ivf. We have underwent several attempt of clomid, fsh therapy, and failed IUI's without any success. So we are at the bottom of the barrel trying the IVF praying to God that this will be the cylcle that works for us.
April 9, 2009 I started the Aygestin BC
took it til May 11, 2009. I had started Lupron May 8, 2009 did trial transfer on may 19, 2009. My stimulation meds of lupron, menopur and follistim began on May 29, 2009. I have been going for blood work and ultrasound ever other day since June 6, 2009
. And we are looking for retrieval on friday June 12, 2009
I have had to decrease follistim I had 11 follicles on sunday 6th with my estradiol level 1068. Yesterday june 8th I had 24 follicles measuring anywhere between 12-14 and my big one 18. my estradiol level was 1764!! I had to decrease down to 50 of follistim and went for bloodwork and ultrasound today and awaiting call from the dr for furthur instructions on my meds and appts, but they already told me that friday would be the big day!!
I'm very nervous and excited all at the same time. With our failed cycle in January, tons hormones in me, and the fear of the unknown I'm just a mess at this point!!!! Glad
to hear that there are others out there facing my challenges of just wanting to be a mother and having empty arms to deal with!!! but then again Im deeply saddened
to know that there are others that have the heart breaking trials to face too. May god bless you all!!!!!
