Cfash-we are well overdue :D HOW EXCITING that you might be able to do IVF right away!! OH I hope it works out...have you talked to them about provera to induce period? Maybe you should? You have to make sure you are not pregnant first of course.

How goes it, girl???

Nothing here, I feel totally normal...can't wait for next week to test!

Love this group name!

cfash, I'm SO excited that you may be able to start IVF next month! Hurry up, AF! I agree and would ask about provera so long as your sure you haven't O'd yet.

bb, I wish it were next week already so we could see some pee sticks! I cannot wait for you to start testing!

not much new here from me, just waiting to O, probably another week and a half or so!

Yep, I am with shorty, we need an update Cfash!!

I had very faint line STILL on HPT...it has not been negative yet, still trigger. I was bummed.I was hoping it would be darker, but it was barely there. I am 11 dpo...so should be ++ on its own...I feel out. I will test tomorrow and WED again too...but I just feel that this is not our month. I am bummed, but nothing I can do. I certainly did everything I could this month!! I hope next month, birthday month, is the one!

bbpac...you're not out yet!! hang in there!!

So we had the full IVF "course" this morning as well as an u/s. Again, "you have beautiful ovaries" - 9 on one side and 12 on the other". (Yes, all very well, but they don't work!>!)

Anyway I had faint faint spotting last night and this morning when I wiped so yes I made it through the weekend without getting it and now i am hoping i get it tomorrow.

As for where we're at, I think we are IVF'ing! What I hadn't realised if that we do another IUI round and its unsuccessful, then you have to wait a month for the drugs to be out of your sytem, then you have a month on BCP, then you can try. So presuming the IUI doesn't work that would mean IVF in MAY!

So if we start now, i have already had the month off drugs, and can start BCP as soon as I get AF (hoping tomorrow).

Its going to be very expensive. $5300 for the IVF part alone. $2000-4000 for medications (we'll be covered for some of that part) and then if we have to do ICSI instead of IVF because of DH's morphology (which is a possibility) it will be another $1500. Yikes. But really, we decided the percentage of success at 60% was much better than 15% on IUI - and as the nurse described, we are only getting everything heading in the right direction with IUI, we don't actually know whether the eggs do appear. (yes, they don't say that when you're heading for your 3rd IUI do they??)

So I knew it would be expensive - but what I hadn't thought about was the fact that these prices are for the egg retrieval round and that if we have frozen embies from a successful round they'll then "only" be $1500 per transfer. So I guess you want to hope for lots of frozen ones as well!

My Dr has decided that they'll try for one 5 day transfer....but if they're not growing as ideally as hoped, they'll go for two 3 day embies.

Wow, so its all happening. Well, sort of. The month of BCP will be more waiting. But I have to have another blood test today just to update the thyroid check (and hoping its still normal as it was last April).

Think thats all. Man, the drugs, nasal spray, blood tests, retrival, progesterone, etc is a lot more than just injecting for IUI. Its a serious looking schedule of things to do! Am going to have to reign in events and travelling and whatever during those 3 weeks because there is so much to remember - morning and night!

Wow, so long update, but there we are. I won't have anything exciting to report for another 3-4 weeks.

Hope you both had a good weekend. Am seriously hoping for the best for you in the next few days bbpac. We could do with some positive news!!

Oh, I'm so excited cfash! You're IVF'ing! Does your clinic offer 'fertility loans'? I know for my $3K IUI, they offered a loan for it. Glad some of your meds are covered--every little bit helps! Can't wait to see your calendar of IVF meds and dates. Great news, Cfash!

No they did not mention. But i didn't ask either. We are fortunate enough to have some money saved up so we should be ok. The benefit of being a bit older I guess....

still, it would have been nice to spend that money on a house. But I am not complaining, because at least we have the option to proceed when many others don't.

Any news ladies?

I have been struck down with bad AF cramps (guess I should expect that after 43 days!) so laying low. But started BCP. The irony huh.

Hope you're both well - and bbpac is looking positive! :wink:
