Anyone cycling July/August 09?

Post by KayCe » Mon Jun 15, 2009 6:13 pm

I never ever expected to start a new July buddies board, but it seems that the June-July thread is super crowded and busy, I just can't catch up!!

But now that I know I am DEFINITELY going to be cycling in July, I thought that I would start a new post for all the ladies that are cycling with me this month, hopefully there are a few of you who would like to join and share the journey!!!

I'm on climara patch this month and then I just have to wait for AF to arrive then I will start on the injectables (600IU GonalF). Good luck to all you out there..and please let me know that I'm not on my own this month.. love to all.

Hi Ladies-

I would like to join as I am scheduled for my FET the week of August 10. I started my BCP on Friday and my RE will be taking a look at my uterus on Tuesday . My 1st Lupron shot is scheduled for July 12. I'm very hopeful that this time will work for me as I started accupunture 2 weeks ago to help boost my odds. Anyone else doing anything to help increase with success rates?

Tangela I didnt do any prep work but I feel more nervous this go around. I feel like I know what to expect more so then last time. I just started BCP yesterday and I am getting my Lupron shot on 7/13 and should have my FET around the 8/5 give or take. Good luck!! I did Pinapple after ET last time and I did NOT POAS. I did after they told me I was preggo just so I could see it. I dont know if I will this time.

Great Katie- we will be in our 2WW together

This is my first time on a message board and I'm sure I'll get a lot of encourgement and prayers as i will be defiantly sending several your way :-) I'm going to eat the fresh pinnapple too after the ET and my mom said that she is going to stay with me for 3 days to make sure I have bedrest. With my fresh cycle I used a heating pad on my butt where i was taking the prog. shot and my husband, dr and i are almost sure that is why my 2 blasts did not implant :-( My nurse knew I was doing the heat befor the ET and didn't tell me not too... but I should have known much better since they say avoid hot baths. I've learned so much over this year and just by reading posts, i'm going to do everything I have read to maximize my chances.

Hi ladies!!! Welcome to the boards Tangela!!! I just posted on the other thread but wanted to check on you. There are a lot of ladies doing FET next month, so you should come check!!!

I got AF yesterday so today I started stims. We are back on the game!! I have to do 600 iu of Gonal F (highest does my clinic does) and then a microdose of ovidrel everyday. I'm not sure when I'm going to have ER since last cycle we went on for 17 days of stims due to low response. So we'll see, I think I'll just take it each day as it comes.

Tangela now that you ask, I do acupuncture and it has helped me a lot with stress. This past cycle was way better than the other ones. I also started to eat better, whole grains, fruits and veggies, no red meat, veg protein, whole milk, avoid trans fat , water... I'm also taking herb tea that my LAC makes for me. So, I think is just using common sense and being healthy!!!

I agree with you both, I'm also doing bed rest after ET. At least a couple of days!!! It is also worth it to be spoiled for a change!!!

Sending you both a big hug and baby dust!!!

Ladies, looks like i will be joining u all on this journey. My story is pretty long but to make it short, i had 3 iui (BFN), 2 fresh IVF (bfn), 1 FET with a single embryo (BFP) but lost my baby boy at 17.5 weeks. :cry: I took off for around 5 months as it was a very emotional time for me and wanted to make sure that i was both physically and mentally ready for a next round.

I started by BCP, had a hysteroscopy last week to remove polyps, and will start Lupron on 6/29. My tentative dates are ET - 7/18 and ER -7/21. I am also doing accupuncture which i had done during my FET cycle. Hoping this one works again!

Baby dust to all of u and hope we can all bring support to each other.
