Hi Ladies,

Thought I would join in! I am doing my first FET tomorrow, my fresh round in July caused OHSS so I had to do a freeze-all.

I stimmed for 9 days then. At my clinic you have your first ultrasound on day 5 of stims and then you determine where to go from there. I think the usual stim time is 8-12 days.

How are u feeling about it all?
How long have you been trying ? Is this your first round ?
Hi Lucy so sorry I haven't been back on. I tend to use baby centre a lot more than here. I ended up not taking norosthisterone in the end. I was stimming for ten days. I had my egg collection this morning and they got 13. Now the dreaded wait for the phone call tommorow to see how many have fertilised. I wish you all the very best with your cycle and if any concerns ask as many questions as you like xxx

Hi all,

I'm doing a FET on November 7, so I'd love to join you.

I had my first scan and bloodwork yesterday, and my estrogen levels are a bit high, so I have to go back and repeat the test tomorrow. Hopefully all will be well. I've always responded perfectly to the medications, so this uncertainty is new to me. I'm just adding it to the list of things to worry about. :-/

Lucy, how did your first injection go???

Amy

Lucy,

How are your injections going? For me, I started one med once a day on day 2, then added one on day 6 (2 injections a day total). That lasted until day 13, when I just did the trigger shot and the shot to prevent ovulation (cetrotide). So all in all from day 2 to day 13 (ER was on the 15th) I had 20 shots. This round I started the same, however the added menopur. Now I have three shots a day, and it's progressing faster so I may have ER a few days earlier.
I was super nervous starting them (even though I am also a nurse), but after a couple of days it became a lot easier. I don't look forward to them by any means, but I find that its not as bad as I made it out to be. A couple of them are uncomfortable (menopur burns-so go slow with the injection & Cetrotide can sometimes cause itching/swelling/histamine reaction at the site)

Good luck to everyone! DH and I are on day 9 of the second IVF. (Last one ended with only one blast to tx). We are awaiting results from today's labs, but it's looking good with a good cohort of eggs between 11-15mm. ICSI is the plan this time due to poor response of fertilization with my 17 eggs that were mature (out of 20). We have no issues with sperm/egg quality, so it's a mystery why they aren't fertilizing.

Hope everyone has an awesome Thursday!

Kk, when is your retrieval? You must be getting close!

I think I've blocked out of my mind the stinging from the Menopur in my fresh cycle. I just have vague memories of trying to find decent injection sites among the big red splotches across my belly. Ugh.

Amy-

I'm thinking ER will be early next week? I have an appt tomorrow so hopefully I will have a better idea.
Menopur is the worst. I didn't have any bruising last cycle and now it's looks like I have been punched. Oh well, hopefully almost at the end point
! Day 11 tomorrow.

I'm out already. My estrogen levels shot up yesterday, which apparently means I have a dominant follicle and my clinic cancels FETs if that happens.

I have no answers about why that happened or how to prevent it next time, which is the worst part. I couldn't quite pull myself together to ask more questions on the phone when the nurse called.

I may disappear for a while, but I'll try to check back and see how you're all doing. Best of luck, ladies!

I'm sorry amy! It stinks to have no idea why and waiting is the only option. Enjoy your time off from this and see you when you return.

Hi ladies, I was hoping I could join!

We are about to start our first cycle of IVF. We have our "Treatment Information Appointment" this Friday afternoon, and I will also have a Saline Infusion Sonogram and a Pipelle Procedure on that day. They have told us that retrieval is scheduled for 24th November at the moment, though of course they could change depending on how I respond. Not sure what kind of medications I will be taken or for how long yet, but I'm sure I will get all that info on Friday.

I'm feeling pretty nervous about the whole thing to be honest! I guess part of that is not knowing how I'm going to feel physically, but also how I'm going to take it if it doesn't work etc. etc. Ahh, such a roller coaster of emotions!
