I will be doing my 3rd icsi cycle tin may/june and I am getting kind of nervous and excited. I would really like to start getting my body in as best shape as possible since I have read it takes 90 days to improve egg quality.
Supposed to meet with my fs mid-end of feb to get the details of my protocol.
Looking forward to a lucky thread. I hope there are others to join me. xo
Hi there! I'd love to join you, but I think I will be cycling in April or May. This will be my first FET after 2 ivf cycles. The last one ended in a BFP but sadly was ectopic (which my dr said only happens in1-2% of ivfs!). I was given methotrexate, which the dr assured me had over 85% success rate. Well it didn't work and I had to have surgery last Wednesday to remove the ectopic. I've been told it will be a minimum of 2 months before we can do the FET.
It will be nice to have someone to chat with during the wait!
Sorry to hear about your ectopic. That is devastating news. Awesome that you have some frosties left! Are you doing an endometrial biopsy before the FET? It is great to have someone to talk to during the wait to get started again. Xo
I don't think we will be doing a biopsy before FET. Before my last ivf cycle I had a hysterscopy to look at my uterus and Dr. said all looked well. I guess I will find out for sure at my follow up appointment, but that isn't until the 19th.
Hi Blue, glad you're having another try. Did you decide to give up work and give it your all?
I'm really, really hoping I can have another try around June time, but I don't know for definite. OH is not so keen, we've spent thousands on this already with nothing to show for it and now we don't have the spare cash. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.
I am on a diet though as over these last couple of years trying my weight has gradually gone up slightly, not too much but I'd rather lose it now than needing to loose 3 stone if I leave it longer.
I have thought about DHEA but the side effects sound scary, so I'm not so sure.
I am hoping to go for a FET around June 2013. Excited to be able to share the journey with all of you. I had a successful first IVF last year and have a little girl who will turn one next month. We are hoping for additinoal blessings with a second baby - we have 6 frozen embies.
Wallie - I hear you about the diet. I need to do that same and lose my weight before trying again. I know that it helps to be healthly as well.
Lucie - sorry to hear about the ecoptic. Glad to hear you haven't given up.
Hi ladiees. So glad to have such great company for this journey!
Wallie I have decided to take 1-2months off of work for the next cycle - remove the stress. Work doesn't know that yet but ill let them know once I have more details. I'm just saying medical leave - nothing else.
Hi Dav. That is so lucky to have so many frosties!!! I dread the fresh process again.
Hello Ladies, I might just hop right in. Though it might be earlier for me as am considering March cycle for my first IVF shot. I ve been trying for over 3 years with 2 failed iui and several clomid cycles.
Lucie - Good to have you here and here is to hoping this is our BFP thread
I got a call from my dr.'s office today, but sadly I didn't get it until the office was closed. When I had my lap last week, there was something else in my tube that the dr. Thinks might have been the second embryo we transferred. Now I have to wait until tomorrow to find out what it was. I just hate waiting!
Hi Ladies, Can I join this thread. I am looking at my first IVF in End May/Early June as well
I little background on me- have been TTC since July 2011. Never got a BFP. Everything looks great on paper for me and Hubs. Gyno suggested Clomid+ IUI for 2 months, which failed. Finally went for diagnostics Lap last May, everything looks good with tubs but there were some spots of endo on the uterus. Tried naturally for a few months, then 2 Clomid+IUI cycles, again NOTHING! So here we are looking into IVF
I will be meeting with the IVF finance person this Friday to sort out how much does insurance cover and how much we need to pay out of pocket. Planning to start all the testing in March and then will go on Lupron for 3 months (to increase egg quality). There is some evidence that women with endo (regardless of mild or sever) may have low quality eggs due to toxins produced by endo. So we are being extra careful and taking lupron for 3 months which will kill what ever little endo that might have regrown.
In the meanwhile, I have two vacations planed. I am enjoying my time with hubs and want to be full of positive energy in May for my IVF. Though everytime I am driving, I end up thinking abt IVF and what it fails, will I ever be a mom etc etc ....sneaky thoughts!
Here is to ALL of US both getting our much awaited BFP's and babies in our arms in 2014 :-)
