July 2018 IVF

Postby Prayingforourredhead » Mon Jun 04, 2018 8:34 am

Hey everyone!
I decided to start a new board. My husband and I are just starting our first IVF ( hopefully the only one).

After TTC for 1 1/2yrs, diagnosed with secondary infertility and 3 failed IUI’s.

I had a hysteroscopy with polypectomy on May 4th, that went really well and now my uterus is all clean and ready.

I called in Day 1 on June 1st and have started taking birth control. We will hopefully do a fresh transfer around July 7th if all goes well!

Anyone else doing a transfer in july?

Hi Hopeful! We are not doing long protocol ...we are doing short..I’m just gonna be on BCP a little longer because I’m going out of town next Wednesday- Sunday and didn’t know how I was gonna be able to travel and stim. Since my AMH is high they told me I could be on the BCP a little longer and would be fine.
I go Wednesday morning before I go out of town to have an U/S to make sure my follicles are suppressed.
I am supposed to start stims on June 21st. My meds arrive today:) so hopefully we should be doing a transfer around July 7th.

How has your IVF experience been, so far ? You said this would be your 2nd? It would be great to have someone to go along with at the same time

Karo- hey! It’s feels like it’s been forever! Yes the transfer went great! I am officially PUPO with twins ;)
Praying that one or both of these babies stick!

How are you doing? Any updates for you? Do you have a new board?

Wow I really wish you all the best! The wait (between every step) is always the worst - why can’t time pass this slowly on vacation? :)

Right?!? The funny thing is my Beta is July 20th and we leave for vacation that afternoon! So I’m really hoping we are celebrating the fact that we are pregnant...but if not at least we will be on a beach!

I really hope your stims go well for you, I found Gonal f pretty easy!! Keep us posted!!

I will also find out if the cycle went well just as I am leaving for vacation - so I will either be downing a very large glass of French wine or celebrating with a very small glass of French wine :)

And re: Gonal F - no crazy symptoms to speak of aside from a mild headache last night. Hope this trend continues and I look forward to hearing your update! xx
