September 2012 Transfer Buddies

Postby BRMommy2B » Thu Aug 16, 2012 3:10 am

I've been following along with the August buddies for a little while, and decided to open up my own board for September and October in hopes that someone will join me!

I have three days left of BCP, start injections next Tuesday, and estimated transfer date is September 6th.

Gi! So glad to hear from you! It's crazy how our paths have been crossed! Our little ones are about the same age. DH and I decided a while back that we would give any little embies that make it a chance at life, so we may be in your shoes one day. I am really hoping this fresh ycle turns out well. I have a peace about me I didn't have last time around, and I am hoping the calm will be a more conducive environment for babies! I start stims on Tuesday. Poor hubs, the bc is what makes me crazy! Here is to a successful cycle for both of us!

Girls, I keep seeing everyone posting about their big scary needles and injecting on their bottom and legs; I've always done injections in my stomach (just pinch and inject). It's a tiny needle and really doesn't hurt at all! My husband did the first one and he was so nervous I just did it myself the rest of the time. I start injections again tonight, and I'm really not all that nervous about it.

Just wanted to share in case there is any easier way for you all out there! I am doing 2 Menopur, 1 Bravelle each night (all combined into one shot), with Dexamethosone pills at noon (to avoid insomia). I think my HCG trigger is intramuscular, so that may have been bottom or leg, can't remember which (was 3 years ago). And I don't do PIO shots, but do Endometrin inserts (which are INSANELY expensive). What regimen are you all on?

Just a clarification of above - I meant the timing of the pills was to avoid insomnia, not that the pills themselves are meant to avoid insomnia! Just re-read and thought it sounded a little confusing.

Hi ladies,

I am transferring on Sept 17th - we have 9 frosties total from three previous fresh cycles. We'll be thawing from the successful cycle that produced my son - I would love to have another like him. ;) (I know it doesn't work that way). :)

BRMommy2B - the big scary needles are for PIO, which is standard protocol for FET. If you are doing a fresh cycle (which it sounds like you are), then your needles are the nice small ones (except for the trigger). I also used the Endometrin for my fresh cycles. Actually, I think I have some left over if you want. I am not doing any more fresh cycles and my clinic does not use them for FET.

Gi - best of luck with your hormonal melt-downs. I've put that out of my mind, so I'd forgotten how bad it can be. :)

Pauleen - I like your attitude; is this your first cycle?

I had my daughter from an FET, and I didn't use it on that one either! Vivelle dots, endometrin, doxy and Medrol. Obviously there are multiple means to our end! Is your Endometrin not expired?

Libby, Yes! This is my first cycle of FET however 2 IVF cycle's from before. Thank you........I am trying to stay possitive due to not wanting to fail. I feel like I fail with every cycle that's a BFN. Truly I don't know how to face my husband any more. But up-beat I will be :D

Brmommy2b, I did all of my shots in the tummy as well. Now the HCG I did on the sides of my hip, both type of shots were good for me!

Andsasha: I totally understand how you feel, and yet it hurts my heart to hear you say it all the same. Infertility, for me, has been about the same as a death that I have had to cope with, except that it's ongoing.

I just looked through the pages, and so far, all of us are already Mommies. I didn't know if I would survive without my daughter (that probably sounded much more dramatic than reality; not like I was suicidal or anything, but I think you ladies know what i mean). This time around, I want another baby very much, but I know I will SURVIVE if our sweet little girl is all that God has planned for us. Now, that said, I'm also hoping that this peace I have about me will make me more receptive; I know the stress can't be helpful at all! I have completely given this up to God. My husband sometimes struggles with the religious aspect of all of this, because he is Catholic, and the church is against it. My response to him is that I've given it up to God completely. If this is not how God wants us to bring a baby into the world, then it won't happen, and if it is, then it will. For me, it's easy, because I know none of us are really in control anyway.

Sorry for the ramble, but I've had all of that on my mind lately.

Where are my girls? Missing you all! Just did night three of stims. I was telling my husband that if this cycle works, according to how pregnancy dates are calculated, I'm already pregnant :)
