Looking for an IVF buddy!

Postby Reddstone » Wed Oct 14, 2015 1:42 pm

Hi all!

Just looking for buddy or even several!! Starting my IVF journey tomorrow with scans and injectables.

This is my first cycle and probably last (but may do two!) so just wanted to fine people who r doing or have done the same!

I'm currently in my 2 week wait with my first IVF, so even though I'm done with the injectables and stuff, I JUST went through it all and if this cycle doesn't work I'll be doing it again!

Welcome, Aine! I'm due for my pregnancy test tomorrow morning. Yes, the 2ww SUCKS! I took a pregnancy test on Sunday but it said negative and I have had no symptoms whatsoever so I'm feeling like it's gonna be a negative tomorrow. Good luck to you!

I'm new here and new to IVF and would love a buddy too. I'm on day 6 of injectibles. Thinking retrieval may be sometime next week. This world still feels so new to me and I'm not great with the lingo and whats what. We adopted our son 6 years ago so I'm much more comfortable in the adoption world.

Recently found out that DH is going into testicular failure and I have a low ovarian reserve so we decided it's "now or never" for another bio. We decided to go for it! Trying to go with the flow and not get too invested emotionally. So far so good. Nice to meet y'all!
Me - 34 Low ovarian reserve
DH - 34 Low count (4 million) low motility
1 bio-11 yo,conceived naturally
1 adopted DS-6 yo
TTC since 2005

IVF with ICSI

10/27/15 - 6 good follicles so far
ER 10/29
7 eggs retrieved!
6 eggs fertilized
3 embryos made it to day 5 blasts
ET-11/3/15 transferred two embies, 1 perfect, 1 fair
3rd embie didn't make it to freeze :(

Hi bg99! I give you guys a lot of credit for trying one last time. I'm on my second cycle note so I can answer any questions. But if you're already on day 6 I'd say you're well on your way!

Thanks for the reply! Went in today and looks like I'll only have 6 good follicles to retrieve from (assuming they all produce) and they are saying I may trigger on Monday, still waiting for dr to review results from my bloodworm/ultrasound this morning. It's getting real! Where are you at this time around?

@bg99- I go in tomorrow to do my embryo transfer! Fingers crossed everything goes well. I'd love to put 2 back again, but I'll see what they say. Wish me luck!

Oh wow! I will be thinking of you and hoping it goes well. How is it I'm on pins and needles for you and don't even know you?! Please let us know how it goes once you're feeling up for it. PT and baby dust coming your way! This could be it! Eeek!

Awww thanks bg99! Everything went well this morning. We were able to put back two 5 day blasts. I'm so hopeful and want so badly for this to be it!!! Pray for me :-)!

You still looking to trigger Monday?

@Reddstone Any updates? How are the injectables going and is your body responding so far?
@Jean789 How are you feeling? Are you done with bed rest yet?

My Dr. was pleased with how I looked this morning, nice thick liner and my follicles though few, responded much better than he thought! Should trigger tonight and transfer next Tuesday. Its finally starting to feel real!

@bg99- I'm feeling good. My Dr never put me on bed rest. My first ivf cycle I went back to work that afternoon (I'm a teacher). I got a bfp but ended up a chemical. This time they encouraged me to take it easy but I'm not sure if it really matters or not. Everyone has a different story! Once you read one thing that works, someone challenges it. Either way my ET was on a Saturday so I wore pjs to the appt and right after I went back to bed with Netflix for the rest of the day!

No symptoms happening here. Only 4dpt tomorrow though, so its still early! Pray for me!
