Hey Renae what is the nutrient level test? Is it a blood test? I might want to ask for it. Thanks

Blood tests to check iron, vitamin D, all the Bs, calcium. It was enough vials that they just took a bunch of blood and filled the vials after. Basically since my small intestine is scared from Celiac Disease this lets them see how much I am actually absorbing. So I am taking a lot more calcium and folic acid than most but I am absorbing just enough to be in the middle range. They reran a few autoimmune panels too and my numbers there are way better than last time. So my tissue transglutiminase antibodies are finally in normal range which means that that section of my body shouldn't be being attacked anymore.

hey Girls can I join!? I am about to do my first IVF... I think mayish.... I was about to do my last and 3rd IUI until I got a call from my doctor that someone picked me from my egg sharing application I put in. (Never thinking anyone would pick me) so I am jumping ship to IVF this coming cycle.. First ultrasound is April 8th to check on uterus and everything and hopefully with start injections after that. Not really sure about the whole process or anything... haven't done IVF before so pretty overwhelmed! Have been TTCing for a while so it would be great if this would work and if I could help out another couple! I have been taking prenatal for 2 1/2 years... added CQO-10 about 6 months ago and will continue those. Exercise was doing 5ks and stuff but have knocked it down to just light walking and lifting some weights.. nothing strenuous or abs.. Anything else I should be doing for prep??

Hey, welcome I added you to the first post.

Huge congrats on the egg donation. What amazing news. Good luck on the 8th. Everything you mentioned sounds great. Have you looked at ubiquinol vs. coq10? Some say it is better. Though since you are doing an egg donation I don't know if it matters as much.

Best of luck keep us posted as to how it all goes. You are going to be the first one through I think. Love to hear about all of it.

Welcome Waiting! Congrats on the egg sharing, great news! Keep us posted with your IVF cycle as you are the first in this group to do it. I wish you the best of luck with everything.

AFM - I think I've just decided to play the PGD by ear and see how my cycle goes. I think that if I only get 1-3 embryos I will just have them transferred and not bother with the PGD. We only get one shot at this and I think I would just rather have them in there then being frozen, tested, etc...I don't have to make a decision today or anything. So it looks like I'll be starting BCP in early May and doing an endo scratch that month also.

Thanks! No I haven't heard of that one my doctor is a huge believer in coq10...so I'm going to stick it out plus with if next month don't think it would have anytime to work. Some of you I don't know how you afford or swallow that many pills haha!

hi all! mind if I join? I'll be starting my BCP 4/20 or so if this last natural cycle doesn't take, so I believe retrieval/transfer will be in May.
We've been TTC for about a year and a half now, no luck at all. I'm 39, DH is 37. His SA came back with low volume and fair-ish motility, morphology was fine. But the doc put him on clomid anyway. I am dealing with DOR for no apparent reason (except age, I guess), so the doc said to hop to IVF. We'll be transferring 2 (if we're lucky enough to get 2 good ones!), we're foregoing the PGS testing b/c it's not covered and we want to let nature run its course (granted we would have done PGD b/c it was covered). The doc agreed that this is the way to go.
I asked my doc about additional supplements too - I'm taking prenatals only - and she said the same as Ren's doc. She doesn't recommend anything else b/c there is no evidence that it actually helps. Makes me feel good that she's a 'facts only'-type gal. But I have really started watching what I eat and am working out a lot more since about January. I hope this helps something!
Sooooo - DH and I are going on a trip to New Orleans for an early 40th bday gift for me, b/c I hope to be preggo in Dec when the real one comes around! We'll prob start the BCP when we get back. Again, if this natural cycle doesn't work out, of course.

Hi, Hope! Thanks for telling me about this thread!!

I really really hope this works and my hubbs and I can get our ducks in a row. I have a tubal factor and getting pregnant on my own just isn't safe anymore. He has super sperm.

What are you ladies doing to get ready?

So far I am on a progestin, estradiol birthcontrol, then ubiquinol.

Egg Trasfer Dates

BabyDancing14, WaitingOnGod1 - May
AshleyLynn - July
HopeThisYear - July
Renaendel - September
Oh and my xfer month is looking like it will be May as well to allow for PGD/CCS after retrieval

Sweet, ok I have you two ladies on the list.

It makes me feel better that there is another doc out there that said the same thing mine did Want2bmom.

Mommylov, keeping my fingers crossed for a beautiful retrieval!
