Hello Ladies will soon be embarking on my 1st IVF cycle for baby no 1, just as soon as I have had my tubes removed in May, Be great to talk to ladies of a similar age and obviously unable to conceive naturally, as it is a very different journey now we know we have to have help Hope we can have some fun a laughs on this roller coaster ride xx
I am 34 with PCOS, husband is 39 with no problems. This will be first child for both. had 2 previous m/c. going for u/s and b/w on tuesday, April 10 and hoping to start stimming on Friday the 13th. This will be my first experience with IVF and appears a bit more complicated than IUI. Either way, I am hopeful and excited to get started.
Hello Sharkey and Carolina Lovely to meet you ladies Good Luck with your treatment. I have never ever been pregnant tried for years but only really the last 2 years have we been seeking medical Advice, yes 2 years unfortunately the Doctors a Gyno were trying to treat me themselves without knowing what was wrong with me and without being fertility specialists, and when eventually I had a Lap etc they realised I was completely infertile and would need IVF, I finally go to a FS and she even commented on the fact they had been messing about with me for so long, anyway I suppose we were just unlucky, but now we are in the right hands and everything is going great, one more operation and we can start treatment which is likely to be June. Carolina My wedding anniversary Is Tuesday, I hope it is a good omen. Happy Easter to you both xx
Hi ladies!! My sig says it all pretty much. We are TTC #1 which will also be the only. I'm nervous for IVF but no more time to waste. I have known since I was 24 that I would need medical intervention to get pregnant but never thought IVF. Me and DH married when I was almost 36 so we are late getting this started.
My FS office does not require mental counseling but I have heard some do. I am going on my own starting next week,, my emotions are all over the place.
I hope so too Mrs.Howley. I had hoped to already be started with IVF, unfortunately, blood test revealed my thyroid was out of whack so we had to deal with that first. I had to take thyroid meds for 3 weeks. My anniversary is May 22 (8 years). I would love to have a bundle(s) on the way for us when it comes around next month.
So if everything goes good on the 10th, we will have retrieval on the 25th and possible transfer on the 28th or 30th. Boy, I am going to be staring at this calendar the whole time.
Hi Noasaint, nice to meet you too
Carolina we also thought we would be starting sooner, but I am having to have another op to get rid of all the damage and my Hydrosalpinx and possibly opening up my other tube a bit if not that will be removed too, as if they stay as they are my IVF is likely to not work, so once that is done we can start, looks like it will be June, but that seems like no time at all. Wow you are sure going to be busy, but you will have the most amazing Anniversary present if all goes to plan, Are you having much time off work, I am still undecided, I suppose I will just see ho everything goes, I have saved all my holidays so I can use them if I need to xx
I am 31 in may and Dh 32 in June. I have no tubes due to 2 ectopics in 2010. Dh has no fertility issues. We have had 2 failed IVF cycles and are currently applying to PCT for funding for a 3rd cycle which would involve ICSI this time. I have AMH of 2.5 also so this caused egg quality issues. GL to all xxx
We also had to get some funding for this cycle africaqueen. I put about a third on credit card and got funding for the other 2/3. However, with this setback I have actually made a payment and we haven't even started yet.
On a positive note, the hospital where I go is doing a study and asked me to join so they will provide a huge portion of my meds. I was really surprised by that one. My insurance covers some blood work but no treatment so I am feeling blessed in that aspect.
