Great to hear from you Toni and glad to see you are doing better. I think it would be worth it to try a natural cycle and see how it goes.

Hi EOE!!

So my transfer won't be until July, lab delay, of course lol. At this point, I'm just like whatever. Gives me time to lose a few pounds I've gained. Good news, is they are wanting to do the transfer the week of July 10, which falls right in line with my natural cycle, so no bcp unless for some reason af decides to show up super early. My vitamin D level came back a little low, not surprising, so they started me on a max dose vitamin D regimen for 20 days, then once a week. So this delay also is good so that my D levels can come up. So looks like some of us may be cycling together again or at least close :)

Hi ladies, hope everyone is doing well. Just giving an update to my lovely IVF girls! AF started yesterday, so I go in tomorrow morning for my baseline and endo scratch. Reminder I'm doing a natural cycle, so based on my usual cycles I should get a +opk around next Thursday on cd12 and they will then thaw the eggs, fertilize them and if all goes well transfer will be 5 days later on 7/12! EEEK, so close! :omg:

I'll update on how things progress along.

Shannon, wow that's great news! In less than two weeks you'll be pupo!! So excited for you and can't wait to see that bfp in a few weeks :) how are you feeling? Nervous? Excited? Or a mix of everything lol!

Toni, glad you are feeling better and are in a better place. Sept will be here before you know it and hopefully by then you will be going in with some answers and come out with a sticky bfp!

Dana, how are you doing? Still going for Sept transfer as well? Hope you're doing okay, hugs

Wow this thread has died hasn't it lol, I do keep checking in to see if anyone has updated but its gone very quiet- hope everyone else is good, I will never forget you group of ladies, we went through so much together in December and onwards and the support from this specific thread was always incredible. Sending lots of love xxx

Things are quiet but I'm still here checking in occasionally to see what everyone is up to :)

Dana - I think about you often and hope things get better for you. It will take time. How have your cycles been, has it gotten back on track?

Emma- how have you been?

Lauren - how are things?

Toni - looking forward to your next cycle.

Anna - hope you are doing well.

I had my baseline and endo scratch and got the ok to proceed this cycle. It's not totally natural because they did have me take letrozole days 3-7, something about it helping the receptivity of the lining. I go back in next Thursday for a follicle, lining and lh check to see where we are. DH asked me yesterday if I was excited and I am, just a little hesitant after all we've been through to get too excited yet. Let's see how my lining does first, then maybe a little more excitement will come. So Emma to answer your question, yes it's a mix of all feelings lol. :D

Shannon very excited for you! And totally get the feelings, it's such an emotionally exhausting process, I've felt like I've been kind of detatched in a way from the rest of the world ever since I started in November lol. Can't wait to hear updates!

Dana how are you doing? Are you guys going anywhere over the summer? I guess living in Greece you have the best of the weather hehe, I know when I lived in Tunisia it just felt like holiday 24/7. Any more thoughts on transferring date/month? They will give you cervical stitch this time right? I'm glad you have frozen so you don't have to start the process all over again, and your rainbow inshAllah is near, hugs

Fur- good to hear from you! You're on mat leave now right? When's your due date? Have you thought of names yet?

Toni hope you are well if you're reading

Afm been busy busy few months lol we moved house, had ramadan so eating at like 9:30pm (although I didn't fast but DH did so was cooking at crazy time lol), and moving area means moving hospitals/drs etc so yeah just been trying to sort house out but its been hot in UK so been a bit lazy lol like doing on thing then sitting down resting lol which slows things down. Still doesn't feel like "home" yet, we were in our old place for 4.5yrs so I guess thats why- kinda feels like we are house sitting lol

Anyways hope everyone is good!

Emma - congrats on the move, I'm sure it will feel like home in no time, especially once the little one makes her debut. Any names picked yet?

Hi EOE!

Just jumping on quick to update. So my appt went ok, my lining was 5.6 and he wants it at least 6, but the good news is my follicle is only at 16 now and my opks are still negative, so that gives us time. He said based on the blood work they will most likely have me come back either Saturday or Sunday and see where we are. That actually works out better for me because then the transfer would most likely be next Friday, so better with getting off work etc. So as long as the blood work today doesn't show pending ovulation (which I don't think it will since my opk I just took at 12:30 was negative) then I think we will be ok and my lining still has time to do something...anything more would be nice lol. I'll update once I hear back from them this afternoon.

I heard from the nurse and thankfully my blood work shows no pending ovulation, prog is low,and estradiol is good. So basically it's just a waiting game now to see when I get a +opk. They want me to keep testing and call as soon as I get a positive then we'll go in the next day. If no positive by Monday, then I go in that morning to see how things look. Come on lining!
