asterimou sorry to hear you developed a cyst how disappointing, but I'm glad your cyst has shrunk so you can get started

mrsw11 I was asleep so wasn't painful it does sound painful though!! It's to get rid of cysts on your ovaries as ladies with pcos have loads of cysts from eggs that don't release etc!
Thank you I really hope I am as this will be our only shot for a sibling!

I bet you're wishing time away I am now too!

ttcbaby I hope all is well? I follow your journal I'm crossing everything for you that this cycle is your cycle

My hubby has poor morphology - so yep ICSI for us. I also had radiotherapy to treat a spinal tumour which makes me think my egg quality may be a problem. We are quite happy to consider donor eggs or embryos in the future if needed.

Re: emotions. I agree that the progesterone is the worst for it. I generally feel okay when doing stimms - that's the exciting part of cycle... I just hate waiting for egg collection and fertilisation results.... out of your control. x

Thanks Scerena! I do hope you get #2 as well. I remember you going this the first time and was so happy for you when you got your bfp!

Thanks for the welcome

Mrs W 11 We are hoping to have 2 transferred but it depends on how many survive the thaw. With our last FET 4 were thawed and only 1 survived, hoping and praying that more than 1 survive out of the 3 this time. I know our clinic will happily transfer 2 if all 3 survived we would like 3 put back but I don't think they will because of my age.

Asterimou Good luck with you Ivf. I did long protocol too. I didn't find it emotional at all. I think that was because we had been trying so long and had become hardened to it all though. The only time I did feel really down and cried was in the wait to find out if transfer had worked and that was because I just knew in my heart it hadn't been successful.

Asterimou - I was the same as ttc baby describes, I was fine during stims but was a bit of a weepy mess during the tww! I would definitely take a few days off after transfer to relax. If you like to take your mind of things you might then feel like going back to work (I obsessively googled when I wasn't busy!) or maybe plan something nice to do to keep you busy for a while. I would book your otd off work. I had tested with a hpt so I knew it was a bfn but it was still a shitty day and I wish I hadn't worked as I felt down all day. On the plus side, if you get a bfp you can celebrate that day!

Hiya ttcbaby. I'm the same as you, did much better on antagonist protocol than long. Welcome and good luck on your fet! Hoping its third time lucky for you! How many are you transferring?

Is anyone doing anything special this cycle to try and make it work? Exercise, diet, giving anything up or acupuncture or anything? I'm probably not because I'm trying to be more relaxed about everything rather than obsessing but I'm interested in what others do! Before I've always given up alcohol but this time I'm just cutting right back. The odd glass relaxes me and I want to stay relaxed and as normal as possible.

Thanks Mrs W! I have 4 frosties and I was begging for them to put back 3 but they said they would only do 2. So I am going to transfer 2. What about you?

I started my Lupron today. It is the first time in all my cycles that I am taking this drug. Anyone have anything they can tell me about their S/E?

I am on 5IU per day.

Sorry girls I missed a few posts when I wrote my last one, I was on my ipad so maybe it hadn't updated properly or something... weird. I wasnt ignoring some of the earlier posts anyway, just couldn't see them.

Scerena - its our last shot too for a sibling for dd. Well certainly for the time being, we only have money for 1 more ivf. We could do a fet but unlikely we will get any frosties going by our last cycles. So I get how you feel with everything depending on it.

Baby - sorry to hear about your tumour and radio - are you ok now? Although you've got to blast which is a great sign for egg quality. I read somewhere that embryos that arrest later on are more likely to be a sperm issue whilst those at don't make it as far as blast as more likely egg issues. Not sure how scientific that is! And yes waiting for the fert report was an absolute killer, especially awful for me as it was bad news, 6 eggs and 2 fert so was pretty gutted from then on in.

CJ I hope as many as possible survive the thaw to give you the best chance. We would love to have 2 put back but I guess it just depends how many we get, the clinic will transfer 2 if we have them.

TTC I haven't used Lupron before either, hopefully someone else has some experience. Is it a stim? I have used Gonal f and Merional.

No it is usually used for down regulation to help quiet your ovaries but since I never down regulated I didn't use it.

So far so good, I feel ok.

Ahh I see, the first cycle I did antagonist protocol and didn't down reg but took cerotide to stop me ovulating. Second cycle I used suprecur (buserelin) to down reg. I didn't mind the cetrotide but they said its not great for egg quality. Suprecur made me feel really menopausal, loads of hot sweats and flushes, tired and moody/stress.

Hoping you keep feeling good and the Lupron gives no side effects! Do you have estrogen patches before your fet?

Thanks, yes I should start the patches around October 21st if all goes as planned. I didn't know that about cetrotide....Hmm I used cetrotide for both of my IVF cycles.
