HI Marie! YAY for the RMA ladies! Is this your first IVF?
Blue - Nurse says we are sticking to the IUI with injectables since the count and motility were good, so they arent "overly concerned". Then she said we can move to IVF, but doesnt want to discuss that until after this IUI cycle. We will start the medications for IVF after this IUI cycle coming up and then the IVF. I guess they start you a cycle before on the meds....
I am 7DPO today and have cramps which is normal for me. Just want AF to show so I can move on to this IUI. Discouraged today a bit!
How is everyone?
Welcome Marie! I'm glad to see you found this thread. We are hoping to find some more RMA ladies to join our little group!
I see you are in your TWW after IVF. You must be going crazy. Is this your first cycle with RMA or have you cycled with them before this IVF?
Jchic- I'm glad they are not too concerned and it is true that if his count and motility are good that makes the picture look much better. My DH's count was high but motility was borderline. Don't that will be here before you know it and you can start stimming.
Hi ladies!! I'm a former Jersey Girl, now transplanted in PA I go to RMA of PA in Allentown, PA
I'm in my TWW after my first IUI I didn't use Clomid, they chose injectibles for me Gonal F and Ovidrel trigger, DH's counts were very high they told me I should give him a prize. I had HSG everything was good, only thing they found was an underactive thyroid, which I was put on Synthroid for. I'm keeping you ladies in my thoughts and prayers and wish tons and tons of to you all.
Hi Jchic!! I have been TTC for a very long time, naturally. I have unexplained secondary infertility. My son is going to be 17 next month. DN has 2 girls from a previous relationship.
OBGYN did HSG everything was good, still nothing. With my age being a major factor ( 38) RE went straight for injectibles, told me I can try one round of IUI then it will be on to IVF if the IUI fails. Which I'm praying it doesn't. I didn't have a problem with the injectibles, I was able to do the shots in my belly and responded very well, my Gonal F pen started at 220 and they asked me to lower the dose to 150, everything seemed to be working rather quickly CD 1 was 3-3 and first IUI was on 3-13 second on 3-14 with BW on 3/17 and had very high progesterone levels. Just keeping positive thoughts and trying to keep my mind off of feeling every little pain or twinge so I don't go nuts...easier said than done though!!
Hi Ladies - West Orange and Morristown RMA girl here. I'm 33 DH is 31, We went through testing in Sept - everything including semen came back normal. Fast forward 6 months later and still not pregnant. I called RMA yesterday to schedule an appointment to start talking about IUI. Hopefully it works!
I am sure the IUI will work and if not, IVF definitely will. I am doing my first cycle of injectables with an IUI this upcoming cycle, then like you, onto IVF. Did the injections hurt? Any side effects? I am a bit nervous about them! I am doing Follistim at 150 I think they wrote down, but I will know more once the cycle starts after day 3.
When do you go in for your beta test?
jchic, you will do fine with the injectibles, they honestly didn't hurt at all, my mom is an RN and she told me to do the injection in the belly not the thigh that it hurts there, so I rotated from one side of the belly to the other I had no side effects from the meds, I have had cramping and sore BB's since the 2nd IUI onn 3/14, don't know if that's just a side effect of the trigger shot. My trigger shot was on 3/12 I had my appointment on 3-13 for the 1st IUI at 9:30 AM DH had his appointment at the lab at 8:00 AM same day, they told me trigger shot 12 hours before my appointment. 2nd IUI DH had to be there at 7:30 AM and my appointment was at 9 AM. This TWW is horrible though, I know they said not to do a HPT because of the trigger meds you can get a false positive, my Beta is scheduled on 3-28.. almost another week I wish you tons and tons of and a successful IUI cycle.
TryinginNJ lots of to you as well
Hi Ladies! I just found this thread. I am with the RMA in NYC & I'm just excited to see there are people in the vicinity. I've had a good experience with RMA so far, they seem like they know what they are doing. Just waiting for that BFP like everyone else
Marie! So glad to find another NY RMA goer.
When do we find out if you have some sticky beans in there??
