I got a call and they said out of 26 eggs, 18 fertilized.  I'm happy about that, but still sore from er.

Anetski- AF came as normal after my BFN, but I was also 6 days longer on my next cycle.

Piggy - I will be having my mock transfer on the 10th and starting Lupron on the 13th. Then I will be doing nothing till AF starts. You are most likely safe to take an extended weekend with your hubby. If you want to be sure ask you RE, most of them understand this is stressful, he would most likely encourage going on a mini vacation.

Mona- Sorry to hear that you are having so much pain after your ER. You should feel better in a day or two if not I would call your RE. Hope you feel better.

Rach- When are you going to post your fertilized numbers? I can't wait hear the outcome. I will be doing my mock transfer on the 7/10 and starting Lupron on 7/13.

Kibbles-  Welcome to the forum

I got an update yesterday that out of the 18 fertilized eggs, 13 are growing great and the other five are kind of growing slowly.  My transfer is tomorrow.  Wish me luck and the best of luck to all of you. I also feel much better.  My stomach seems to be swollen though.  I do not know if that is normal.

Piggy,

I think it's absolutely a great idea to take a long weekend.  I took 2 weekend get-aways my last IVF cycle and even thought I had to take my injections with me I still enjoyed the time away to relax and regroup.  I am starting my 3rd IVF cycle this week and will be on BCP's for 3 weeks so my DH and I are going to FL for a week before I start the injections.  I am hoping to come back from a week on the beach totally relaxed.

We are having two transferred and yes we will be freezing the rest.  I have had two previous miscarriages, one blighted ovum and the other I lost at eight weeks.  We did concieve (conceive) those two naturally after having my tubes opened, but they closed back up and did not open again.  Therefore I am nervous so I opted to freeze them.

Hey Rach,

ET day is the most exciting part of the whole process (next to the BFP, of course).  I wish you all the best of luck!  We hindered on the vacation but my DH said that I need a week off after having gone through 2 failed IVFs already this year and needed to have some down time to relax.  I'm glad it worked out that I would be on BCP's and the last week of them we can go away.  It's so hard through this whole process of trying to plan ANYTHING!

Hi


I am signing off of this thread.  Yesterday morning I started spotting and this morning I have full on AF with huge clots.  I was devastated because I did not even make it to Beta. We are trying to set up an appt with our RE to check what happened.  I witnessed a very bad car accident on Saturday.  I was involved in a car accident and any time this happens I always have a breakdown.  At this poinr everything is under speculation from my end.  I am still trying to come to terms with it.  This is our first IVF and I did not expect it to take such an emotional toll on me.  

Sorry girls, I did not want the first reult to be a BFN but thats the way life rolls I guess.  Take care and good luck everyone.

rachjas- I know I will be going through the same thing as you in a few weeks.  I hope that you get the call soon and know when your transfer will be.  I hope all 8 make it!

We moved everything into our new house but can not move ourselves in yet because the AC has to be fixed first.  Maybe a few more days.  The Lupron is giving me headaches and I was bleeding for the last four days I guess from my  bc pills not being taken on time.

SSBD!

So I had 2 embies transferred 1 grade 2 and 1 grade 3... they said that was good but I'm not sure what that means.  When we asked they don't really explain anything.  I know the scale is from 1-5,  2 seems a little good but 3 seems just ok... I wish they were both grade 1 :o)  so that kinda shot my confidence a little.  Today I'll call and see if they were able to cryopreserve any.

Hey Rach,

I just wanted to tell you good luck tomorrow and I will be thinking about you and keeping my fingers crossed!

On a lighter note, AF was due today and she can't come quick enough.  I'm ready to start the 3rd round already!  My DH has gotten a new job and is luckily able to put off starting until August so we can take advantage of our last IVF cycle covered by his current insurance.  Everytime I go to the bathroom I just pray AF is there......and so far.....nothing!  Hopefully tomorrow she will show her nasty face.

Again, good luck!

Hello Ladies,

Looks like I am back in the trying game.  I started with BCP yesterday.  So, Kibbles, you are going to be my partner.  I have a HSG scheduled next week.

AFM- Dr. has changed up the program. I went in this morning for bloodwork b/c they want me to take lupron longer and take it with my BCP. So Dh and I have to decide today whether or not we can still go through this cycle. DH is in the navy and will be leaving at around time for embryo transfer. This is causing one of the biggest fights we have ever been in. He thinks im being self centered only focusing on the cycle, and not understanding his point of view about being half way around the world and not knowing if I'm pregnant. I knew that this process would be hard. It was the first time we did it. I knew it would be stressful... but does the end goal justify all the damage to the relationship? I just dread thinking about stopping the process now and having to start all over again in a month or two. And it doesn't help that the meds make me feel like a crazy person. I just needed to vent my frustration a little bit. I didn't have anyone to talk to last time, and this website and you girls help tremendously! It's very comforting to know that we are not alone in our struggles. I'll post tomorrow and let you guys know if i'm still in it.

Hi Everyone,

I am new to this site. this is my  2nd IVF. I had 2 embryo transfer on tuesday JUne 30th.
I fell sorness around my ovaries since then. I am so nervous? what's the reasons for it?
Can someone help me? please!!!!!!
Blank
420566_tn?1321842156
HI all

I have noticed you are all taking birth control pills before starting ivf. What is the reason for that. I would be interested to see how the procedures difer.

This is how mine works:

day 21 of cycle start Lupron or in my case Synaral nasal spray to lower the estrogen level to keep me from ovulatinag.
After Af has started or a few days before depending on cycle lenght they take bloods and if hormone levels are where they want them they start you on Hormone injections (in my case Gonal F 112.5 units).
I did those injections for almost 2 weeks this time with a few booster Pregnol injections as well. Except the Dr lowered the Gonal F to 75 units for the last 3-4 days.
I probably had 4 blood tests while on the gonal f and 2 ultra sound scans.
I triggered 36 hours before egg collection. The day after I am on vaginal pessaries for 15 days.

Is above very different to yours?

Hey guys,

I am doing my IVF this month, i have started Lupron and have been on it for just over a week. I will start my stimulating meds this weekend. Not looking forward to doing three needles a day but you do what you gotta do i guess :) I will have the extraction on the 15-17th of July can anyone share experience of extraction? I know that they are not fully putting me out so i was just wanting to know what I can expect. I should be going through the transfer on the 20-22 and I am so excited and nervous all at the same time. i know some of you are going though the same thing or just had transfers so baby dust to you all....:)

Avatar_f_tn
anetski- I was told by my doctor that the BCP will help keep any cysts from forming on your ovaries, and it also keeps you from ovulating until you begin lupron.  BTW I got a call saying that I had 8 eggs that were able to be frozen.
Blank
655897_tn?1328022045
When should you stay on bedrest after a 3 day transfer? Doesn't implantation occur around the 5th day?  I know rxy had a 5 day transfer and had to stay on bedrest for two days, but what about day 3 transfers?  Was anyone told to rest for a few days after their 3 day transfer?
Welcome to the newcomers:)  This site is really great:)  Stressed118- I have had several retrievals and the worst part for me is getting the IV put in.  Other than that, you may have tenderness in your belly area from all of the eggs on the day of the retrieval and you will probably feel very bloated.  It is very quick and they will be able to tell you right away how many eggs they get.  You will probably have to start progesterone in oil injections the night of the retrieval and you take one every night.  I hate these IM shots but I always ice my butt for a while and I hardly feel a thing:)  The day after the ER, they should call you to tell you how many have fertilized and they should keep you updated every day on the progress of your embryos.  I am doing my fourth IVF this month.  I start stims next Thursday.  Good luck and be sure to keep in touch:)

Hi ladies

Your cycles sound tough with all those injections. This time I only had to inject once a day for 14 days or so except the extra booster shots they wanted me to do aswell to get the eggs more mature.

When I had my transfer done last year the doc told me to go about my life as usual. He said go for a run, have sex do what ever you like except hot baths, sauna and all that. I admit I sat on my bum for almost 2 days. This time I can't. My boy will keep my busy and my husband has to work so I hope it will be ok.

I am excited. I hope there will be lots of BFP! Bring it on....

Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sry I have been missing. Relaxing as much as possible. Here's a quick update. Transfer went well...it was kind of silly at one point...My RE kept saying "everything looks backward!" Come to find out... after a few mintues... the nurse who was doing the ultrasound had the wand backwards! lol. After that got situated.. all went fine!

Anyway, we transferred 2 blasts (both 1.0 --highest grade)!!! They are beautiful! I started crying when they showed me the picture. They were also able to freeze 2 other blasts yesterday and I just got a call from them today that another one made it to freeze today! So, I have a total of 3!!

Beta is Friday morning at a local lab. Last time I used this lab, I got the call from my clinic mid-afternoon. So, one week from today!

Everyone- I am thinking of all you no matter where you are in your journeys. I want to thank you all for your continuing support, prayer and well wishes!!!

I will try to do personals tmw! I am thinking of all of you! A_Muse.. thanks for updating.. I just thinks it's an easy way to keep up with everyone!

Muse - here is my update.  AF was late, she was due on Tuesday but she finally showed up yesterday (7/3).  I go to the RE tomorrow morning 7/5 for bloodwork & also starting BCP's tomorrow for 23 days.  Tentatively starting stims on 7/31 (my b-day) and ER should be week of 8/10.  As things progress I will keep you posted.

Rach - so glad to hear things went well.  To have 3 frozen is incredible.  After 2 cycles we only had 1 freeze so I am hoping this cycle we will get at least 1 more.  

Mamom, Kibbles & Help4Baby - sounds like we are only days apart in our cycles.  I'm so glad to have a few of us going through the same things at the same time.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Round 3 for us is the charm.  I'm not prepared for another disappointment.

Happy 4th Ladies!

Day 4 post ER and we still have 7 eggs that is going strong. Transfer is tomorrow so we will see what we end up with.

Good luck every one.

Transfered day 5 full blastocyst embryo today. We still have 4 growing and we hope to get 1 or 2 to freeze but they need to be full blastocyst before freezing.

Didn't think I would be emotional this time but offcourse I shed a little tear when I saw the embryo on the screen.

The doc advised that the chances of it working is around 40% but if you are one of the women that get more than one embryo to blsatocyst stage it goes up to 45%. They are only numbers but 45 sounds better than 40.


I hope we all get there this cycle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry for not updating sooner and thank you so much for the words of concern. I really needed them and it is nice to have people who care.  (Long story).  Anyway, I have started my AF on the 3rd and I will talk to the RE on the 9th.  My husband and I are both in agree we want to try again so I think we are going to give it one more chance.  I know we would try until the banks ran out of money if we could, but we can't.  Plus, I just took a $13K a year pay cut so that really hurts!  Anyway, I will continue to say if it is the Lords will then it will work this time around.

All,

I m having little side effect of BCP i.e. tired/achy leg and feet and loss of " taste." Anyone else have/had this?? Rest is fine with me now except lots of things going on my mind about IVF :) that's natural.

Good Luck to everyone.

help4baby - I am tired and no taste so same side effects as you.  Even tho this is my 2nd time, I cannot help but think too much

Baby4me - I am so glad you decided to give it another shot.

anetski - good luck and hope you get a BFP soon


AFM - I have another HSG on 8th which is when my RE will decide when to start with Lupron.  This time I have decided to be on bed rest after the procedure.  Eat a pineapple core a day, eat brazil nuts, yams, anything for implantation :)

Hi all!

Some people are have troube finding/loading this thread. Since it's getting a little long, I have started it over. I called it, "Summer IVF # 2." It can be found under the Fertility forum. So, read all the post on this as needed, but start posting under the new! I know that for the people who have dial-up, the other one was getting a little long.
