Hi everyone,

I did my first stims injection yesterday which wasn't as bad as i thought, i didn't think i would be able to inject myself but hubby left me in peace & i just sat & did it. I was very pleased with myself i just hope i can keep doing it with no problems.
This is our first IVF cycle so we are not getting too excited just yet incase it doesn't work, i know that might sound defeatest but it's the only way i think we will be able to cope.

Fingers crossed for everyone else

hi all

yearningheart - good luck this cycle , how did you find the whole process the first time? for some reason I think its going to be easier than I'm expecting but I'm probably In for a shock, just hope it works for us all
I have long cycles 35-75 days and DH is ok its just not happening for us

Lizzie - yes we could be starting together, that would be exciting, I can't wait for ym first appointment, sounds like yours went well, wishing you lots of luck

Twinkle - hope all goes well for you, keep us updated on your progress, wishing you lots of luck

emz - good luck, you don't sound defeatist, I keep worrying about how I will cope if this doesn't work as I think I'm pinning too many hopes on it, so exciting but scary at the same time!

twinklemama - Hi and welcome! Oh thats great you started stims, we will be at similar times then I start my stims tomorrow (Hopefully). Is it one injection you taking daily or two if you dont mind me asking? Hope the nausea goes away, those thing can be a real bugger.

lizzie78 - Thats brilliant! Trust me I am telling me, the long protocol seems forever but somehow time just flies. I can not believe I have had like 7 weeks of pills, seriously time went super fast. Happy to hear the appointment went well and looking for updates from you after.

emz1200 - Hi and welcome!! Wow you did the injection yourself?! Excellent, you brave lady!
I cant imagine doing it myself, my husband does it for me. I do agree with you in terms of not getting hopes up. This is my 2nd round of IVF and though I am so excited I keep saying to myself not to get hopes up. Bigger the hope, bigger the sadness but I hope it doesnt come to that for anyone of us.

Star - Hi, Yeah I really do hope we all get a BFP and party
Well my first IVF did pass very quick, it was an exciting journey but at the same time an emotional one too. I found the meds a lot to take in because normally I dont have any medications unless an absolute need so that was a tough. My body did not react too good with some meds so i was in hospitial few times, those days sucked! It was horrible but to know that maybe I can have a baby kept me going and that all died when I found out my IVF failed. Iv moved on past those days of tears and ready and confident for the second round. You just have to be strong and always positive no matter comes your way. (I know super easy to say) I am wishing this IVF cycle works for you.

Hi all. Mind if I join? I'm supposed to start IVF in May, but right now I'm so confused! It starts to make sense at some point, right?

Hi Mowat,

Welcome I'm unlikely to be able to help much on the confusion front since this will be my first cycle. It might help one of the more knowledgeable ladies though if you could say whether there is anything in particular that you are confused about or is it just that you are finding the whole thing a bit overwhelming?

Yearningheart - thank you, I'm sure you are right I'll be following you all and picking up tips.

In the meantime I have got back in touch with a fertility acupuncturist that I used to see and am arranging to set up some appointments which will at least make me feel like I'm doing something practical.

Thanks for the welcome guys! I guess I'm just confused because I'm a 2 hour flight away from my clinic so everything is coming by mail, or, rarely, I talk to them on the phone. I got a package with prescriptions and, to confuse me more, they sent one that had someone else's name on it! Imagine!

I guess I'm most confused about when I need to be down at my clinic. Because I need to find somewhere to stay I'm finding this very stressful.

Star - Yeah hopefully it is a lucky tread for us! Is there any updates on your appointment? Looking forward for you to start!

Mowat - Welcome!!! How are you? Oh no they had someone elses name on your prescription??!!! Did you tell them that, make sure you do. Yeah I guess it does not help to fly for 2 hours to get to the clinic, is there no clinic closer just out of curiosity?
My advice for you would be to speak to them and tell them your situation and you need to know roughly how often you may need to go in. To be honest sometimes its not known because it all depends on how your body reacts to the meds nevertheless do have a word with them. As for the IVF process, dont worry it does seem confusing, when I did my first IVF, everything I was reading was so confusing I think that is because everyone's treatment varies slightly. Only when I was actually doing the IVF it made sense. So dont worry it will all make sense. It is said that when you experience something you understand it better. I hope you can find a solution to your problem. Keep us posted.

Lizzie - Ohh thats good good! I know what you mean, when you do something even a little it feels like something is better done. I have heard that acupuncture is good. I myself did do it, but let us know when you have your appointment

Oh I forgot a little update -
Ok so yesterday was my first scan after 7 weeks of 2 kinds of pills. Everything was fine so I started the stims last night. It was a horrible injection, it didnt feel anything when put it but then when the liquid was pushed.. ouch that hurt. I am dreading todays injection I have a scan on Wednesday to see how everything is.

All the other ladies who have started the stims, how are you finding it?
