Anyone starting IVF cycle in April/May?
Hi ladies,

Oh thats great. Good luck with your appointment. Yeah I am in the UK. Let me know how your appointment goes. By the way is you first round of IVF free?

How many funded cycles do you have? Have you started yet?

Hi ladies, I have my first appointment at the IVF clinic tomorrow so will hopefully know more after that but hope to be cycling soon.

Good lick lizzie, let us know how it goes, I cant wait to start! Is it your first ivf cycle?

Hi yes it's our first cycle. DH has a child from a previous marriage so we have to self fund. It's taken us 8 years to get to the point where we have tried everything else, saved the money and I've quit smoking and lost the weight I needed to. I'm trying not to go into self sabotage mode at the moment which sounds crazy I know! I'm excited and terrified after so long thinking about getting to this point in equal measure lol. Will let you know how we get on today;)

lizzie78 - Hi, how did your appointment go? Hope it went good. I hope it works out for you. Aww it is exciting indeed!

Star25 - Yeah I hope this IVF cycle works out for you and you do nott need another, wishing you the best. I have 3 IVF cycles funded, this one is my 2nd one and I am praying it works.
I have started my IVF, I was on long protocol which means I was on pills for like a month. Well actually I have been on 2 types of pills for like 7 weeks. I have my first scan on Friday and from Friday I will start my stims hopefully. Im very excited and nervous at the same time.

Hi ladies, hope everyone is well. Hope u don't mind me jumping in! I started my stims yesterday for my 3rd cycle of IVF with ICSI. So far so good, just feeling quite nauseous this time and have a bit of a headache.
Good luck to everyone! Xo

Hi Ladies,

I think I'm going to just have to stalk you as I'm not going to be starting just yet.

Appointment was good I think. Our issue is MFI after vasectomy reversal so the consultant confirmed that ICSI is our only way ahead. She seemed quite positive and said that there is no reason why we shouldn't have the same chance of success as everyone else and estimated 40-50% chance. So now I have to wait a little bit more as I'm going to be on Long Protocol. My cycles are around 36 days so I won't be getting my baseline scan until around the end of may and will finally start DR 21 days later. So I'm on the final straight now, think I'll feel better once I start my next cycle and can actually start doing something that will make a difference :happydance:

Yearningheart - good luck for tomorrow

Star25 - maybe we will still end up cycling together

Twinklemama - hope the nausea is not too bad and will keep my fingers crossed that this is your cycle
