TammieRei :   Betabase can be really useful (http://www.betabase.info).  That’s a good beta for 14dpo (or 9dp5dt) for a singleton!  Good luck!

TammieRei :  congrats!! I hope your Betas are great! I know how you feel. I miscarried on my last cycle and If all goes to plan I’ll be doing another transfer in March. I know if I get pregnant I will be a nervous wreck. I really don’t know how not to be after what happened.  If you find out how to make yourself less nervous. Let me know!! The only thing that helps me a little is that i have several friends who miscarried and they all went on to have healthy pregnancies.  Good luck!! So excited for you!!!

Whirlwind03 : Thank you! I like that it’ll let your play around with different variables, like age!

candy08 :  I hope the time goes by fast for you for your March transfer! It helps to read forums of other people who can also relate. How blissful one can be in their pregnancy/ies until something goes wrong, and how you can’t really ever get that feeling back!

I am just beginning this process so I am hoping it’s ok if I join this group to learn from you all before I start this November! It’s so overwhelming!

 

ROLL CALL:

Age/SO’s Age: We are both 27- I’ll be 28 when I start IVF

TTC History (length of time TTC, previous IUI/IVF attempts, etc.): I have one little boy (Hunter) conceived naturally, then we discovered I was a carrier for Hemophilia which I had passed onto him. I will be doing IVF this November in Cancun with PGD to have a little hemophilia-free girl next ๐Ÿ™‚

Known Issues:

None (yet)

IVF plan (vitamins/supplements, short or long cycle, genetic testing, fresh/frozen transfer, # embryos to transfer, etc.):

This is kind of why I wanted to join the group- to learn what works, what is recommended for me to do to increase my chances of success. I know I will be doing a fresh transfer of hopefully 2 x day 5 embryos that have been tested with PGD. We are going to extend a trip to Cancun that we had booked for this coming fall and do this at FCC. Does anyone know anything about them?

IVF Start Date: November 2018

For bees experienced with IVF – Any advice for first-timers?:

I would love this advice!

kaycost :  I just wanted to say good luck!! I am getting ready to start my fet cycle meds on. Feb 21st with a tentative transfer date of March 12th. So looks like we will be cycling pretty close together! I did a fresh cycle last July. Let me know if you have any questions.  In all honestly ivf was not as bad as I thought.  Not easy or fun just not as awful as I was thinking.  Good luck!!

kaycost :  Thanks! That’s so exciting!  Remember getting my meds was exciting but also over whelming  I just made sure to watch the videos of how to give the shots ahead of time and that helped make me feel more prepared!! I have 2 frozen embryos and we are transfering 1. I am getting my meds today. Good luck to you!!

candy08 :  Hi! I started stims on Monday! So far, so good. Yesterday they counted 48 follicles, with many right around 10mm. I go again tomorrow and am excited to see how they have grown! I’m feeling bloated and tender around my ovaries but I don’t mind. Thanks for checking in! How are you doing? Your transfer will be here before we know it!!

kaycost :  That’s great! Yeah feeling bloated and tendor is normal but glad you are doing well.  I’m doing good too. Most days excited but some days a little nervous. I’m just taking estrogen right now so it hasn’t been back. Good luck!!

candy08 :  Hey! We’ve had two ultrasounds, one at almost 6 weeks, one at almost 8 weeks. All looks good, and they released us to our regular OBGYN ๐Ÿ™‚ Currently at 10w3days ๐Ÿ™‚ I am definitely showing already haha.

How did the FET go? I’m assuming it’s come and gone already. Are you in the “TWW”? and was it a 3 day or 5/6 day transfer?

I go in tomorrow to get my linning checked.  If all looks good I have my transfer on Monday with a 5 day blast. Finally starting to feel excited as it is getting so close and feeling more real!

kaycost :  Hey  how have you been? Did you do your retrival yet? Hope all is going well! My transfer is tomorrow. I have a range of emotions  today. Excitement, nervous, anxiety etc.  The progestorne and estrogen probably isn’t helping my mood either but I know it’s all worth it to give our little frostie it’s best chance. Really hope all is going well for you!!
