March/April 2010 Cycle Group

Postby misocial » Thu Feb 04, 2010 9:28 pm

Hello all, :D :D :D :D

Thought I would get an early jump on the March/April board. I was in the Jan/Feb cycle group with a bunch of WONDERFUL friends. Some of whom are rocking with BFP, many are waiting for a beta and the BFN's hopefully will find there way here. This year has been unbelievable for me. I slid into Jan. with big hopes only to be cancelled before ER due to poor response. My body appearently responded too well to the "EVIL LUPRON". Follies never got bigger than 1 by day 7 of stims. Somewhere in all the reading I had done and the meetings with RE, I must have missed the you might be cancelled speech. When I was cancelled I cried, got mad, and cried some more. :( Took a while for me to get my act back together. Well after my consult today we have a new plan which does not involve "EVIL LUPRON". :twisted:
:shock: The Plan :shock:
Meds to make AF show now, then BCP's till stims for a ER and ET the end of March. By my count I will be on BPC for 4-5 weeks. Also increased Metformin that I already take.

So with plan in hand and laptop in lap, I invite any and all join me for the continuing saga of IVF or bust !!!! :P :P :P

I am sorry to hear that your cycle was canceled. I am going to be doing my first IVF in March also. As I have never been through this I had been surfing the postings from the Jan/Feb girls. I am only on page 20 and I think its up to 86 so I still have a lot of reading to catch up on. :)

I too am on BCP which I started on Jan 27th and will take till March 6th. I will start my Lupron on March 2nd. I hope it wont be evil for me as well. :x I will start my stim drugs on March 12th when they do my baseline bw and u/s. My ER is suppose to be around the 22nd of March and ET about three days afterwards. They have also put me on the Metforin too which makes me nausious/vomit often. :( Hopefully you will not exprience this with your increased dosage.

Take care!

Hi misocial and hopeforbabies, I'm also taking metformin and is making me so sick from the stomach. I was taking 500 2x a day and now it was increased to 1000 2x a day and I hate it. I started lupron and couldn't start stim due to high insulin levels. They put on a diet and I'm going in next week to see if is helping. Let's get some BFP

You are in the right place, the Jan/Feb board has alot of valuable info. Keep a notebook and tissues handy. The notebook to write down helpful hints and the tissues cause sometimes you are gonna laugh and sometimes you are gonna cry. I read 3 ivf books but learned more from the ladies on this board than the books. :idea: I have only been through this once before but have learned alot. I highly reccomend that you finish reading through that thread because of the vast amount of info. Looking at your schedule, you will go before me, my dates are a week later. I have taken Metformin for 13 years but not at that doseage, so things should be ok. Did you RE tell you it was to help your follies grow??
Any snow in AZ? No of course not!!!! We are expecting 2-5 inches tomorrow.

Hi all!

I have been on the Aug/Sept. board, Oct. board, and Jan/Feb board. Now with a donor egg cycle I will hopefully get to the BFP in March!!!

I am on BCPs right now with the baseline right around the corner. Let's hope we will all be on the "high" part of this rollercoaster soon!

No thankfully there is no snow down here in the valley :D however my mother-in-law lives in Prescott (2 hours north of me) and they have lots of snow. She keeps trying to talk DH and I to come up there and visit so we can play in the snow. Brrrr I think I will stay right here.

As for the Metformin they put me on it to help me lose a little weight before the ER. I have had some complications with breathing when under anesthesia (sp?) in past surgeries. My doctor said when we are knocked out we breath more with our diaphram then our lungs. Because of the extra weight on my diaphram from me being overweight I might benefit from using Metformin to help me lose some. I guess its suppose to help regulate insulin levels in the body and prevent your body from absorbing as much sugar from the things we eat.

jaydentd I am taking 850mg 2x a day and I hear you on the being sick to the stomach. Yuck :!: I hope your insulin levels balance out for you.

misocial Did your RE say that it would help to develop follies? I didn't know it did that too. :shock: I guess that makes the being sick part not so bad.

rayofsunshine I hope this DE cycle results in a BFP for you.

ahhhh i was so hoping i wouldnt have to join this thread!! damn it!!
:?
for those of you who dont know here is a little bit of my story so far. DH and i have been TTC for 2 and a half years now. After a year of trying by ourselves we went for some testing. DH was perfect, and they couldnt seem to find anything wrong with me except my thyroid was a little off. i was put on synthroid and we kept on trying. after about 6 months and still nothing we decided to do a lap on me to see what was going on. i was shocked and heartbroken to find out when i woke up that i had stage 4 endometriosis! this is considered the most severe stage of this horrible disease. the endo is all over both of my overies, and i also have some inside my overies as well. both of my tubes are bound to my bladder and bowels. one of them is open, but the other one they couldnt even see though all the scar tissue.
i was given a 1% chance of getting pregnant every month and were told we should move on to a fertility specialist.
last may we found our RE, and since my endo was so bad she wanted us to move right to IVF.
we started our first cycle for aug/sept, and were canceled before the ER due to the lupron over suppressing me. so we decided to try again with a lupron microflare cycle in oct/nov. again we were canceled before ER due to a dominant follie that grew 8mm over night leaving the other follies in the dust with no way to catch up!
we started our 3rd cycle last month using an antagonist protocol and finally made it to ER! when i woke up i found out that they only got one egg. i was so scared. amazingly enough that egg was mature, and fertilized and grew into a perfect 4 cell embie and we did a 2dt. i did everything i could to make a good home for my lil fighter, but last friday i got the heartbreaking news that it was a BFN!
I'm still trying to get over the pain of all the emotions DH and i have been through this past month, but i went for my F/U appointment on wednesday, and we are trying again at the end of march!!
i already started BCP's and will be on them until march 20th, and then we will be starting an even more aggressive antagonist protocol.
i am scared and nervous, but hopeful that this time i will get my BFP!
good luck everyone! i dont know what i would do without the great support from all of you wonderful strong woman!!
here's to a huge BFP list for march/april!!!
:D

YAYYYYYYY a March/April thread!!! Misocial, thanks so much for starting this---you're the bomb!

Why am I so excited about this thread, you may ask?!? BECAUSE IT HAS TO BE A LUCKY THREAD. You know....March/St. Patrick's Day/the luck of the Irish. And, of course, because many of us just suffered a cancellation or a BFN so it really HAS to be our turn for a BFP, right?!?

I'm tentatively scheduled for a frozen embryo transfer on March 18th. I start BCPs tonight until February 25th. My baseline appt is on March 2nd and my lining-check appt is on March 13th. I only have one little frosty baby, so I'm hoping and praying it both survives the thaw AND decides it wants to implant! :wink:

misocial, hopeforbabies, jaydentd: Ugh. Metformin. I was on that too when I cycled two years ago. They put me on it because I have PCOS. I was sooooo sick from it that the RE decided it wasn't worth it and took me off of it. I sooooo feel for you!!

turtle0619: I'm still so sad about little Poopo and my Darth. Let's call our embabies something more positive this time...maybe that will help. :wink: In all seriousness, I'm really rooting for you this cycle. It HAS to be your turn, my friend!
