Buddies wanted--Starting IVF April 2013-June 2013!


Hi ladies! I was hoping to find some others who will be beginning their IVF journey soon so that we could go through it together

DH and I have been TTC since May 2011. DH's SA showed everything looked good and as for me, I have at least one clear tube and irregular cycles. I just finished 5 unsuccessful rounds of clomid and now moving onto IVF (doctor thinks we have unexplained infertility) - we have been referred to an IVF/Fertility Clinic and have our first IVF consult on April 29th, so I hope to begin our first cycle in May/June!

Please come and join me!!

Hi Starlight2012! I am also moving onto IVF this year. I think I will probably shoot for June. I am currently securing financing and I go back to see my gynaecologist this month who is going to refer me to Lifequest in T.O. I'm nervous. This is a huge step.

Hi Mrs. T! I see you are also from Ontario I am in Ottawa!

My gyno also just referred us to a fertility clinic. I had been on clomid for about 6 months with my gyno, and now being referred to the clinic for IVF. we have our first appoinment on April 29th, so am really anxious and excited for it. I have a feeling that the earliest we could also start is June - so maybe we can go through this adventure and cycle together!

You're, right, this is a huge step! Hope that there are no complications in securing financing. How long have you and your hubby been TTC?

Hey Girls,
Would love to join you- hubby and I are beginning long protocol ivf middle/end april. We have been ttc for over two years and are unexplained (hormones, hsg, sa all normal). We are excited about IVF but definitely scared of what might/might not happen! We are in Canada also, so securing funding is on my March to do
list too. We are completing our pre-ivf tests next week and then heading to vegas to try to relax before starting the craziness. As of Monday I have basically given up coffee and cutting down sugar, doing yoga, etc. I plan to do acupuncture starting April too! Are you guys doing anything to prepare for ivf?

welcome born2bamama - another fellow Canadian, how wonderful we are also very excited for ivf but have the same worries as you about it maybe not working.

what will you be doing for your pre-ivf test? I am really new to the whole process and slowly figuring things out, we are not meeting our ivf doctor until the end of April, so will be a bit behind you so eager to learn about things through you as you go through them!

Ohhh Vegas, how wonderful - have you been before? My husband and I really enjoy Vegas! It will be perfect to relax and enjoy a bit before starting into the IVF adventure.

We are also going on a trip right befor our IVF consult - we are going to Barcelona from at the end of April, then the day after we get back we have our IVF consult, so the timing worked out perfect so we can relax on vacay, then come back and figure out what to do next!

To prep for IVF, I have been going to the gym more regularly to get into a good routine, and cutting back on caffeine as well. I thought about doing accu as well but had a consult and didn't like the accu person I met with, so I think I may try to find another one as I have heard wonderful things about accu

I got the approval for financing just have to go sign.

We have been trying to conceive our whole marriage! 10 long years!!! We were so psyched when our first IUI worked last year but unfortunately I had a miscarriage. But I am at least hopeful I did get pregnant so I guess it can happen again.

Yeah I am very interested in starting acupuncture. I have never been before.

Are you girls gonna be taking any supplements/vitamins or anything? I keep hearing about everything from CoQ10 to royal jelly to whatever. It is enough to make my head spin!

Mrs T - that is great that you already have approval for the financing and just need to sign, when will you be doing that? So sorry that you and your hubby have had such a long TTC journey you're right, that is very postive that you were able to get pregnant last year although very sorry it ended in m/c. I have a good feeling about the ivf and that it will do the trick for you!

The only supplement I am taking right now is folic acid as I was worried that other supplements may not react well to the meds I was previously on, but now we are on a natural cycles till IVF starts. What are you currently taking or thinking about taking?

Thanks, my bank lady just called me a couple of days ago to say it's a go and she will call me when the papers are ready to sign. Hopefully I will hear back soon.

Right now I am on a prenatal multivitamin, folic acid and vitamin D. My gyno recently tested my vitamin D because he said there were studies done on links between vitamin D and the success of getting pregnant. My vitamin D was low so I am on 2000ius a day now. I don't know what else to take. My last IUI I took Royal Jelly and my uterine lining was really thick that cycle but then again I was also on more powerful fertility drugs.

I think I may not take anything else this time and just try acupuncture. I am scared of acupuncture though. I have never done it before.

That's perfect on the financing. I hope you hear back soon as well so that you can just get it out of the way and off your plate.

Hmm I wonder how my vitamin D levels are. I could always ask about that when I go for my appointment next month.

I have been on the fence about trying accupuncture - at first it scared me, then I was willing to try anything, so I booked a consult. At the consult, I didn't really feel comfortable as she admitted that she didn't really specialise in fertility accu, so I never went back. Now I am thinking about doing it with IVF as there is an associated accu clinic related to the fertility clinic I am going to. But I am not sure! When will you start yours?
