Hi everyone! I started a post about Possible September IVF, now that I know for sure we are doing in September I wanted to start another post. Anyone else having IVF in September? I’m currently on birth control, waiting until September to start my injections.

I just started bc pills yesterday. I have this as my "July cycle", but the calendar I received yesterday puts the egg retrieval around September 3-8th. (Injections start around the 24th).  Maybe we'll be navigating this process along the same time?

I have my baseline scan in September 1st, and then start my injections September 2nd. I’m still waiting on one package of medications still, it’s making me a bit worried! How is everyone else feeling?

They keep moving me up. I am on day 3 of stim meds. So far the shots have been pretty easy. I’m only doing gonal f injections now and add menopur in a few days. So far the only side effects I’ve had are headaches when I wake up. Trying to increase my water intake hoping that may help.

I started my first IVF cycle the second week of August. My body tried to produce a single follicle even tho I was on BCP! So that delayed my stims. Now I'm on Follistim and Menopur. Been on for 4 days, told to continue for 2 more in hopes of getting more follicles. Only one measured 14 mm. I was told to bring my Ganirelix shot with me to the RE office on Wednesday. I was originally told maybe September 3rd for a retrieval day but now I have no idea.

I went in for my first monitoring appt yesterday. I was on day 5 of stims, they said I needed to keep my dosage up instead of decreasing. They only saw 7 follicles (one 10mm on each side and some smaller ones) but said they would have liked to seen more at this point. At first they were worried about OHSS but I don't think they are at this point any more. So today is day 6 of stims and I go in again tomorrow for another check. I am hoping to be able to do the ER around the 7th! Keeping my fingers crossed!

 

How is everyone else doing so far?

My Dr told me I will need to switch to ivf this month of my Iui failed - my third one... well took a test and negative on 10 piui.... do I call before my period for ivf or the week of? They didn’t give me much guidelines except on day of Iui they said watch the video and learn about the shots... I feel so clueless...

So today is day 3 of stims for me. I spoke with my nurse earlier and asked for my baseline follicle count since I forgot to ask on Sunday.  She looked it up and told me "11".  Funny but I'm kind of skeptical.  Maybe she was looking at another patient's info?!  I've never had more than 8 at retrieval so 11 at base line seems strange.  Has anyone experienced such a variance in cycles?  This is my 4th...

That's great!  Nix the back pain.  Is that a side effect?

I go in tomorrow for blood and ultrasound.  Thinking I'll trigger tomorrow or Saturday.  Tummy feels like a pin cushion but at least my fever is dissipating.  I couldn't handle having to cancel a retrieval due to a virus.  Hopefully all goes well.

Let us know how many fertilize tomorrow.  

Until then, have a cocktail and enjoy the warm weather!

We ended up retrieving 11, 10 mature, 7 fertilized, and 3 made it to day 5. We transferred 2 and have 1 frozen. Still in the TWW but I feel pretty confident at least one stuck! I maaaaay try to test tomorrow since I am Irish and it's St. Patty's Day, but I will only be 5dp5dt so I am still a little hesitant.
