Jan/Feb 2016 IVF

Postby Noonigayle » Sun Oct 11, 2015 11:53 am

I know this is really early, but wanted to reach out and see if there are any ladies planning on cycling in Jan/Feb. I'll be starting my second fresh the middle of January and really want to find some people to journey through this together with. I also created a private FB group if anyone would like to join.

Hi Danaa and Future! Excited to have some buddies during this process. Looks like this will be first IVF attempts for the both of you as well? This will be our first go at IVF also. Scheduling our initial consult for early December and hope things move flawlessly from there (as we all know in this infertility struggle, we hope for the best but tend to expect the worst). Trying to keep the optimism alive :)

Awesome. Glad there's a few of us already! Where is everyone in the process? I've already had all my testing and hsg. I start birth control in December when my cycle starts. I'm using a different clinic this time around (it's half the cost of the first one we used). While I'm excited about saving $10k, I'm nervous that I won't have the same results.

Noonigayle, that's so exciting! And how great, you're able to save so much money!! Regardless of clinic, they have to use comparable protocols, right? I'm sure you'll have the same positive results :)

Danaa, Greece?!? I've always wanted to visit there. Looks beautiful! :) Nice that you have most of the testing out of the way. Positive vibes as you continue!

I've had all the testing (prior to IUI's) so now we proceed with the IVF protocol. Our clinic does about a month of bloodwork prior to starting birth control for a cycle. Then all the fun (hormones, egg retrieval, etc.) We have the official IVF recommendation from our RE, but have to do the actual consult/requires counseling session. We can't do anything until we have our funding in place. Our IVF will all be out if pocket, and payment is required up front. We anticipate doing the consult and preliminary bloodwork in November and then starting birth control in December. If all goes as planned :)

Hi! I'm planning a natural FET for Jan/Feb and would love to keep company with y'all. I have 1 year old boy/girl twins from my first IVF attempt in Feb 2014. I'm trying to coordinate with my husband to schedule our consultation. Hoping for October 29th or early November. We have one embryo left from that attempt and want to give him/her a fair chance so I will track my cycle and go in for the transfer after I ovulate. No hormones this time. We did IVF with ICSI due to male factor infertility. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have about the process. I may not be on here daily but will try :)

Welcome Clsb! Congrats on your successful IVF attempt at round 1! Twins?!? That's so exciting!! Good luck with your consultation and will keep my fingers crossed that your FET is successful! What exactly is ICSI? Still learning the IVF related terms...there's so much!

Thanks, TTC! Twins are great...a LOT of work but a lot of fun too. My IVF cycle was crazy tough (I'm one of the rare people that had severe pain with egg retrieval, then severe OHSS which landed me in the hospital for a week, then a twisted ovary) and my pregnancy was brutal (severe SPD--my pelvis loosened and seperated at my pubic bone at 16weeks, gestational diabetes, huge babies-- plus my husband took a job 3 hours away and we lived seperate until I moved 6 weeks before the babies were born) but it has all been so worth it. I delivered by scheduled c section at 37.5 weeks two healthy babies 7lbs4oz and 7lbs11oz. I hope your cycle is just as successful! Where are you located?

ICSI is Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection. It's when the embryologist selects a sperm and injects it into the egg. My husband had a vasectomy in a previous marriage and the reversal surgery he had when we got married didn't work so they had to biopsy his testicles to get tissue containing immature sperm. The immature sperm can't swim or penetrate an egg so they have to be

My goodness, you've been through a lot! This pregnancy should be a breeze , right? ;) I've always secretly hoped for twins but it scares me a rad to say it out loud, lol. Especially after hearing experiences like that, woah! Although, as you said, I'm sure it's ALL worth it!!
I'm located in Ohio. This will be our first IVF attempt and since web have unexplained infertility, no idea where it will take us or what to expect. My friend just did IVF and same as you...experienced servere pain with ER, so that's the only part I'm a tad nervous about, but mostly I'm excited and ready to get started.

Hi all! I will be making my appt to my doc in December to get the ball rolling for my first ivf. I have no kids of my own but I have 3 wonderful stepsons. Thank God that my hubby's insurance will cover this procedure or else I wouldn't be able to afford it. I recently had a myomectomy in September to remove fibroids and now that I'm recovered, my doc wants me to move forward with my testing. I have faith that all will go well. Prayers going up and blessings rain down to all of us.

Hi ladies,

I would like to join your group if that's ok? After two open myomectomies, the last being this past June, and a lap to check my tubes after an HSG and SIS, we have now landed into the world of IVF. I'm 34 and my dh is 47, we are both in the Army. So we are still deciding who we will go with to do the procedure (mil vs civ) but either way it is looking like Jan will be the time. I will actually turn 35 on New Year's Day, so I'm more than ready to get started. I pray each of you have a smooth cycle and we all result in beautiful LOs!
