Hi ladies!

Amouna- In relation to IVF, it is definitely not my first, second or third rodeo. I have been pregnant before but no live birth. My previous IVF cycles before this year were all unsuccessful- no BFP EVER. I switched REs and she is literally a Godsend! I got pregnant this last FET cycle, as you know, and I am gearing up for another FET cycle as we speak!.... Did your RE say why you can't snack in between meals while on meds??

Aahhh I''m praying we all get our christmas bfps! That must have been so tough it not working first few times, especially after all the meds etc. I hopethis is all of our last times doing it! My dr said something to do with insulin so they don't want my blood sugar levels going up and down up and down after everytime I eat, they want up three times (breakfast lunch dinner lol) then rest of the time down- something to do with egg quality they said but honestly its cold here and all I wanna do is eat!!! So i compensate by stuffing my face at mealtimes lol! Been told low carb as well but honestly these meds are making me so bloated i put around 4lbs on in the first week alone! I'm on buserelin then afterwards menupur I think its called? She said AF would come in next week or so, so waiting on that.
How do you find your meds? Are yours injections too? I'' just feeling bleurgh- also if you don't mind me asking, are you unexplained? I am but DH morphologys low so we are doing half IVF half ICSI (hoping that I produce enough eggs that is) xxxx

Thanks danaa, really hoping and praying for all of us! By the way I love your name, so pretty :)
I'm hoping the weight gains just water and bloatedness lol, its such a strange feeling it feels like your bodys not your own on these injections, don't like that at all but if it means we are blessed with our babies then i'll take it lol! Are you on long protocol? Xxx

Ty Amouna.
I don't know if is a long protocol,after af shows up,im taking estrogen and then progesterone and then transfer,I already had my egg retrieval and I was on a short protocol.
For me the stims weren't that awful,besides being more emotional and some hot flushes i didn't had major symptoms,I felt bloated the last two days before the egg retrieval before then I didn't really felt anything but i was used to the stims.

Ah thats good you didn't have many side affects :) I am just majorly bloated like I genuinelly look 4 months pregnant lol, its ridiculous and came back from work (i'' a teacher so surrounded by screaming kids all day lol) and fell asleep i was so tired! Also very forgetful, but I've always been someone who reacts bad to hormones lol even the pill I took for like a week then stopped!
Does it hurt when the stims start? My Dr said they want 15-20 eggs (i have slightly low AMH so hoping it works!) but I usually get ovulation pain so dreading that with 15 or 20 lol! Ahhh so nice to have you ladies to talk to :) xxxx

Hey Amouna! Yes it is very tough to go through this without success but when I got that BFP in Sept, I felt new hope arise and knew that it is possible to get pregnant again; my baby just has to implant in the correct spot. I'm not unexplained, I had bilateral blocked tubes and had them removed in 2012. My hubby is the one who is perfect reproductively!! Lol. As far as how I found my meds, I went to ivfmeds.com (I think they are in the UK) and that was my best bet! I used injections to get where I am today- 9 frozen babies! So every try for a while will be done through FET process! My FET process is different from Danaa's; I start with bcp's, then overlap them for 2 days with lupron injections, then stay on lupron for a few days. Next, I start estradiol for a week or two and then progesterone for 5 days then transfer! When I was stimming, I was on a short protocol as well! It didn't hurt when the stims started for me. The needles go in your stomach which has more fat content and shouldn't hurt too much. You shouldn't feel pain even though you'll have 15-20 eggs but you may feel more heavy in that area.

Amouna same as Johnyswife im the problem,my tubes are messed up.
The Injectables doesn't hurt,the needles are so tiny and thin,you won't feel a thing,some experience discomfort,bloating,some cramps during the whole process,i didn't felt anything like that except some bloating on my last two days.
My protocol is different than Johnyswife but even so we have the same goal,meaning to stop our ovaries from working,for example i had an Arvekap 3,75mg shot on cd21 to stop my ovaries from working the next cycle,i will then start Estrogen pills for 10-15days and after that 5 days of vaginal progesterone.
I think the protocols are different bcs we are in different countries,states,Im in Europe and she is in the US!
Johnyswife if you don't mind me asking what caused ur blocked tubes?did you tried a lap to unblock them?

Welcome Fur!

Danaa- my Dr has no real idea. When they went to remove them, it showed ahesions and hydrosalpingx! However, I have never had a STD in my life.
Although me and my Dr decided that it could have arised from an unknown infection I may have had when I got molested at 14 and had to have an abortion. Who knows!

Thanks for that danaa and jonnyswife :) so helpful to hear everyone else's experience, and hello furmom!

As far as they're doing it here in UK, I'm on buserelin to put everything to sleep lol, then after period menopur to rev it all up then trigger then progesterone for the rest of the cycle and if (praying soooo hard) it works then proegestrone tablets for 12weeks- DH does my injections lol but I told him don't worry leave the up the doo daa tablets for me to do lol the relief on his face was priceless :)!
If you ladies have email addresses how about we start emailing if people are up for it? I did that with another lot of ladies from tww a couple of years back as email was easier to access (3/4 of them now have their babies, one girl on there had severe endo, did ivf and didnt work then got a bfp naturally and has literally just had twin girls , pretty amazing lol)
