My ET also will be in the end of Jan. I ve started BCP's from 11 of dec. Hope we will get good news this time this is my ist ivf cycle.
Blank
1452553_tn?1297095468
I started BCP's on Dec 10th. I got my ivf calendar in, & start Lupron on Jan 5, then FSH a week later, ER on Jan 26 & hopefully ET five days later. We should be getting all our meds delivered tomorrow. I can't believe that this is all about to happen! I'm praying for that BFP on Feb 9th! What's your calendar look like?
Blank

Even i got my ivf calender and start lupron injections on Jan 3, ER on Jan 24 and ET three days later. God with us this time.
Blank
1452553_tn?1297095468
I can't believe we're only going to be two days apart in our cycles!! You have to keep me updated everyday when you start your injections. I just know that January will be our time!! Baby dust to you!

Lupride injection starts from today onwards .I took injection on thigh and its little painful  and don't worry January will be our time!! keep me posted your experience.this is my ist cycle. Is this your first ivf cycle??
Blank
1452553_tn?1297095468
Your not injecting in your stomach? That's were I am. This is our 1st IVF too. I have my mock transfer tomorrow morning, then Lupron injections the morning after. I'm so nervous. 2011 is going to be good to us!!
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
Yes I am taking injections on thighs. What is mock transfer? Why you are so nervous my dear God is with us so don't worry. Definitely God will do something for us. Stay positive only.Baby Dust    
Blank
1452553_tn?1297095468
A mock transfer is where the RE looks at your uterus to see where the best place to put your fertilized embryos before the actual ET, kind of like a trial run. Not so nervous anymore. I'm on day 4 of lupron, & only 2 more days of BCP's (YAY!!). The only side effect I'm having is being very tired all the time, what about you? I'm at peace & putting it all in Gods hands. Baby Dust

Hi

Hi nterrell,

How are you doing and what about ur injections? Tomorrow i am going for ist scan and then dr will add one more injection. My hubby is suffering from male factor that why we moved into ivf/icsi and am totally with him and my in laws came over here and they told us no need to move into ivf and they blamed only my side. They told me problem is with me only not in my hubby but its ok my sweet hubby is always with me and we don't have any support from them.I feel lot of pressure from their side. I am just sharing my feelings with you because you are my friend. I need a lot of support from you and i am always with you my sis. I just want get good news this time and definitely u will also get good news this time. Lots of wishes and Baby Dust!!!

I had an ultra sound last tuesday and it showed 9 follicles right and 6 left.average size was 14..lining 11..

any advice before my IVF ??
is it painful??
did anyone take dosinex before the IVF??
Blank
Avatar_m_tn
well the ER is alittle bit painfull, but just after u will feel better.
the ET is like iui not painful.

u mean dostinex right, the 2 pills?

its aniprolactin I heared it helps but do u have high prolactin level? when did u take it?
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
yes i am talking about the dostinex...
no i don't have a high prolactin ..but i was given this drug today to take it for 8 days>>>so i don't understand why...i thought that its a drug to reduce the pain.but after i bought it .. i found that its related to the prolactin...so i was wondering why??????
Blank
Avatar_m_tn
I know that it can enhance ovulation, the prolactin hold ovulation, so doctors is trying to make sure he gets the maximum ovulation, but how u take it from 8 days? can u tell me how did u start it? and from which day of ur period?  my doctor describe it for me I took it only for 2 days, half pill every 12 hours.
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
well...i will start taking it today ... and it will last for 8 days ...every day one pill after dinner..
i think this is something related to the preparation of the IVF but i dunno exactly for what!!
aslo i am taking aspocide and hostacortin H.the doc said it reduce the possibility of my body rejecting the embryos...i am taking my trigger shot today at 10.30 pm.
since when were u TTC?
Blank
Avatar_m_tn
since october, I have a problem in my tubes after my c section so ivf is my only option,
so u r taking 4 pack of dostinex?

aspocide and hostacortin H is also for ivf I think after the ET he will give u Clexane shots also. I think my ER will be arround end of Jan, I hope by then u get ur bfp

are u doing 3 or 5 Day transfere?
Blank
Avatar_m_tn
are u a pcos? how was ur FSH and LH, I just found on some page that some time it reduce chances of ohss
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
my hormonal tests were all normal...I am not a PCOS..I dont have problem with my tubes...my husband sample was good...as the doctor told me I HAVE NO RESON NOT TO GET PREGNANT but simply its not happening!!!!
and this is my case for the past 2 years and 1/2........
I am doing a 5 days transfer.
my follicles will be divided into 2 groups.one will follow the ICSI and the other normal IVF..
good luck with your IVF...i wish we can close our eyes and open them to find out that it was just a nightmare and its over....
Blank
Avatar_m_tn
I know what u mean, I got pregnant right after marriage, my ovulation is great and my husband too, but after my c section things is clomplicated.  Doctor said with one tube I have a chance for ttc natural but it will take longer, and I wish to have a baby soon,  isa ur IVF will go great, I heard alot of success about ur doctor and he is very prof. but why u r deviding ur ovum for ivf, I though in Egypt we do icsi all the time?

my doc studied in england...and i think most of his basic rules do follow the english one...
so i think he is trying both protocols out of extra knowledge..i dont know really ...

Hello my dear friend. My injections are going alright. I'm just taking one in the morning right now. I have my baseline & u/s in the morning, then start 4 injections on Saturday! I'm so sorry for what your going through with family. We are also doing icsi with ivf due my husbands very low sperm count & motility. My mother-in-law didn't pay me any attention until we told them that we're doing ivf to have a baby. Now, she is very sweet & keeps telling me that she can't wait to hold her first biological grandchild. I have other children from a previous marriage that she doesn't have much to do with. I just have to keep reminding myself that I am doing this for me & my husband and do not need to stress over what his family does. Keep your head up, & trust in God. I'm here for you whenever you need someone to talk to. I'll keep you posted on tomorrows doctor visit. God & baby dust be with you.

I tested early coz I was traveling abroad with my husband and I wanted to make sure if am pregnant or not, and the HCG were < 1 so I was sure it neg, and about 11dp3dt I started spotting and then full AF, my stupid doctor only gave me passaries only and I couldnt gave them right to my self , they went always in the toilet lol, this time I will take also injections.

Avatar_f_tn
Don't know how far along each of us are... but thought maybe you would like to see what is "going on" in your 2ww....  If you are trying naturally day 3 would be three days after ovulation and day 5, would be 5 days after ovulation....

3-DAY TRANSFER:

1dpt ..embryo is growing and developing
2dpt... Embryo is now a blastocyst
3dpt....Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
4dpt.. Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
5dpt.. Implantation begins,as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
6dpt.. Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining
7dpt.. Morula is completely inmplanted in the lining and has placenta cells &
fetal cells
8dpt...Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood
9dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops
10dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops
11dpt...HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on
HPT

5-DAY TRANSFER:

-1dpt ..embryo is growing and developing
0dpt... Embryo is now a blastocyst
1dpt....Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
2dpt.. Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
3dpt.. Implantation begins,as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
4dpt.. Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining
5dpt.. Morula is completely inmplanted in the lining and has placenta cells &

I think 14 dpt is alot, maybe 9 dp5t u can have a beta hcg, it will show even if there are small about, but only if u will be able to relax, I know what u mean waiting is so boring specially when u are resting home, I bought bunch of books to read them in the 2ww, I think my ER will be next WED I will know better on Sat, just wanna ask? when did u start cyclo prognova?? do u know what its for?
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
cycl-progenova ( looks like BCP ..but i think that it is used to regulate your cycle!!
i only take the ONE pills in it ..which is PROGESTERONE ( i think its to keep the lining of the uterus .) .

I am new to this forum.  I did my ET on 1/23.  We had to use donor eggs as I am 33 years old but went through premature menopause at 14.  We got 16 eggs.  !0 fertilized.  2  day 5 blasts were transfered and 4 more made it through freezing.  my clinic does the beta test at 9 days after transfer, so on tuesday...So far I have just had mild cramping on and off, and some sore bbs.  I am taking estrodial 2mg two times a day and progesterone in oil inj.  daily.  So-it could be the meds causing the symptoms...The wait is horrible, every twinge I try to analyze.  I am 5 days after the transfer now...is it too early to do a hpt?  I did an HCG trigger shot on the 17th so 11 days ago.  Would it still be in my system and cause a false positive??  Ughhhh...I feel like my brain might implode!!!!  :)
Good luck to everyone!  And sticky baby dust all around!  :)
