IVF wanna-be-moms

Postby Hopefulrosey » Sat Jan 27, 2018 3:24 pm

Hello,

I am going through my first ivf cycle and looking for support through girls in a similar situation. I did join one of those dedicated ivf ttc boards on TWW. But sadly not many active girls over there so trying my luck here.

Any wants to share this crazy journey with me? FET or retreival, I would love to hear from you.

Afm, I am taking stims (gonal f) right now and added cetrotide 25 to the mix today. US is on monday for the final follie count. Last US showed I might be growing 10+ foĺlies.

Hi, wanted to send you some baby dust!
I'm not going through ivf prep but know it can be taxing on the body due to all of the hormones.

I do hope more ppl reply to your post though.

Keep posting. Hugs

Hopeful its a hard journey but will worth it. You will see that in no time you will be at yhe retrival and possible transfer. Dont worry it the transfer gets cancel cause of different situation can come up. FET is a more relax approach and your body is back to a more normal hormonal level. Sending lots of positive vibes and hoping that you get very healthy embies.

What a lovely thread. I just completed a failed cycle, ugh. It was tough going, to be honest. The TWW was absolutely killing. I want to wish you the best of luck! I hope you have a better experience. You can do this! Baby dust for all of you.

Hi ladies!! These pages have gone dead. Jesus i have kept all you lovely ladies in my thought and prayers.
As for me not much i thought this was my month to give it a try and get ready for my last emby. But no luck very disappointed with my body. 2 weeks of estrogen shots and my lining got to 7mm and no triple lining. And to tap things up i happen to ovulate on my own this cycle without any warninig. So cycle cancel did a biopsy of my uterus and waiting for my result in a week. Doc thinking i might have an infection. If not will go back in for a DandC to have a closer view. How are you doing. 
Hooe to hear from you ladies soon

I just wanted to update incase anyone reads it.
April we started fresh stimulating my ovaries just a little with follistim and menapor. But the unexpected happen my ovaries responded to well and my doc didnt want to loose this potential eggies/embryos. My lining was not as thick as he was hoping for but dicided to trigger when he saw 9 mature or big enough follicle. So we trigger and retrieve 9 egg 7 were mature 6 fetilized and all 6 made it to blast graded AA go figure with all these months taken supplements we couldint expect less lol. Any way this was last Saturday April 27 and yesterday may 2 we transfer 2 blastocyst. Which let me tell you it took 4 tries before they dicided to leave the catheter to my uterus. Everytime they try the biologist came back nope they are still here. I really hope and pray its a good sign of wanting to stick lol. So today is day one for me and im already going crazy.
Anyone ones to joint me on this 2 week are welcome. Planing on testing on 5dp5dt which is tuesday. Ufff or maybe i will just torture myself and test with the chipies everyday. Today i when in and did blood test estrogen at 700 and pogesteron at 130 not bad however lining at 6.4mm much less than on the egg retrival day wich was at 7.8. God has everything under control. We did our part. God has the last say.

On my last FET i started seeing a light positive on the 5dp5dt verylight and it stayed verylight for days which we new it was not a good sign. Ended up with an ectopic and one in the uterus that did not implant well.

Good luck to you I hope things go well. My first IVF didn't work for us. The main reason according to me is the lack of research. The clinic I visited didn't have expereinced doctors. Their success rate was also very low. Therefore, I think that was one of the major reasons that led to the failure. Now I am visiting a different clinic and I am hoping things work out for us. They have a mitochondria donation process which I am planning to opt for if IVF fails again.
-Low AMH and High FSH
-Poor Ovarian Reserve
-5 IUIs (failed)
-1 IVF (failed)
Life is a total mess
