I am hoping that I will be!! I'll know for sure in a few weeks after our Orientation and after I see how DH reacts to all of the information thrown at him!

I, too, love the support of the board. I am thinking you meant *when* instead of why. We go see RE on Dec 2. I had canceled my follow-up to my previous failed IVF because it was just too much for me to process. This will be our follow-up from that and we will talk about moving forward. I think that I ask to get on bcp to control my cycle, so that I will be ready for lupron when I return from my Christmas vacation on Jan 3.

Sorry, Tracey! I certainly did mean "when"!!

Well, I randomly got a call from the IVF Coordinator at my RE's office today. Weird timing as today is cycle day 1 and she was just seriously randomly calling me. Since my last cycle day 3 b/w and u/s was done in April, we are going to get that done on Saturday so it's up to date and ready to go. She will call me with the results on Monday, and if we are all clear, we are going to move forward with the next required step- a sonohistogram- to check my uterus and make sure that there's nothing in the way of implantation (even though I just had everything cleaned out in my surgery in August!). I'm getting nervous and so excited all rolled into one! This may actually be happening!!!

Since my next cycle will start a little before Christmas, it will be a little too soon (and bad timing!) to start that cycle, so we *should* be starting in mid/late January if all tests come back clear!

Well, I am going to pick up my antibiotic today that I take through Friday or Saturday. My sonohysterogram is on Wednesday (yuck), but Tracey- isn't that the day of your RE appointment??? Maybe we'll both have some good news about moving along for this cycle by mid-week! One week from tomorrow is our IVF Orientation, and DH is excited to go- which makes me even MORE anxious if that is possible!

I did ask my RE about going on BCP, and he said that their IVF group doesn't do controlled groups since they are staffed 7 days a week! That means that whenever NEXT cycle ends (my Dec/Jan cycle), we may be starting all of the important stuff for this already!

Hey ladies can I join? We will be having IVF in Jan. I should start my bcp's in about 1 1/2 weeks. My dh & I have 3 kids. a 13 year old dd & 11 year old boy/girl twins. We had no fertility issues & the twins were conceived naturally. After the twins were born we made the decision for dh to have a vasectomy. I started talking to dh about reversing it when the twins were 2! We finally had it reversed in 06. We tried naturally for a year before moving onto IUI. We had 6 and none worked for us. Dr's feel we are dealing with sperm antibodies. So here we are finally ready for IVF with ICSI. The Dr feels like we should be succesful since it's a sperm issue. I'm still nervous none the less. I'm currently working but will be quitting at the end of Dec. I'm really excited to get to know others going through the same journey.

Hi! I'm sorry your journey has brought you here, but we'd love to have you!

I'm Jackie (28), my DH is Jon (29) and we've been trying for our first baby for almost 2 years (next month). I was diagnosed with severe endometriosis, so IVF is our best option at this time. We're starting all of the pre-IVF testing and getting it out of the way in hopes of starting our one and only IVF cycle towards the end of January!

It may be a little quiet in here until the time gets closer, but feel free to jump right in!!

Jackie - Yes, RE appointment is Weds. I am anxious to hear what they say! I am also anxious to get on bcp so that I can control when I start AF. We are traveling for 1.5 weeks at Christmas and I wanted to be "drug-free" for the holidays! Good luck with the sonohysterogram. Will you find out the results immediately? And keep us posted on how the IVF consultation goes next week!

Welcome Robin! I look forward to following your journey!

I think I will find out my results right away- my RE should be the one doing it from what I understand. Since I just had the surgery clearing all of that out in there, I don't imagine that they will find anything, but with endo, you never know!! I'm so excited to hear about your appointment! Don't forget to update!

My RE appointment went good! It was mostly a follow-up to our previously failed IVF attempt. I couldn't bring myself to going in for that appointment earlier.

RE thought that I was suppressed too much with the bcp and lupron. Because of this, I took stims for 15 days. My estrogen level started to peak and he ordered the ovidrel when he needed to, but felt like my body could have stood to wait a little longer. For my retrieval, I had 4-20s, 5-19s, and the rest were right around 16s. He had wished that I had some larger ones.

For the next attempt, he wants me to get on bcp, but no lupron. He will start my stims out at the higher dosage and see how I progess along. If my eggs start growing at a slow rate (similar to the last cycle), we will either cancel the cycle or move forward with an IUI. This pleased DH and me. Since we are paying for this out of our own pocket, we appreciate this.

We decided that I won't get on bcp to control my next period because I will start on my own around Jan 6. My RE will be on vaca thru Jan 8. A regular cycle (without bcp) will work out perfectly with his vacation. And really, waiting another week is no big deal in the whole scheme of things!

Sounds like a great appointment!!! That's awesome that your RE is working with you in case the cycle doesn't go as planned-- I would appreciate that too!

I posted my update on the board! I am completely done with the pre-IVF testing, and DH just has his bloodwork to do. Orientation is Monday afternoon and I can't wait!

Anything going on in here?

I have my last RE appointment of the year next Wednesday afternoon-- I will get my IVF Protocol then. DH had his bloodwork done last weekend, so we are all ready to roll. I will also get my injectable information/class next week. DH and I will then sit down and discuss a "yes" or "no" to IVF. I am hoping he will say yes. I am also hoping that my RE will not need us to do ICSI, which will save us another $1200, and make it a tiny bit easier for DH to say yes. I'm going to start calling for pricing for meds next week after my appointment- through the following week. We'd now (by choice) be looking at a mid-February start date.

Jackie, sounds like you are moving right along! How exciting!

My nurse is faxing in my prescriptions for all of the IVF meds. We will be out of town Dec 23-Jan 3, so I will call on Jan 4 to have the meds shipped.

I am nervous as heck about starting the emotional rollercoaster in January. I know how low I was after the previous failed attempt. I don't EVER want to feel like that again. I think part of the reason for my uneasiness is I have 2 friends who are going through IVF at the moment. One friend just completed her IVF and got a BFN from her Beta late last week. I rehashed all of those emotions last week after I heard her news. The other friend just had her retrieval on Tuesday...they retrieved a great number, but not many fetilized. I reminded her that it only takes one! But again, I am re-living the emotions in my head.

That is totally understandable, Tracey! We can only give a fresh cycle one shot (and perhaps ONE FET if we have frosties), so if it's a BFN, well... I'll lose it. I know it's a chance I'm taking, and I'm scared out of my wits. That's where DH isn't 100% ready yet... just such a huge chance.

I'm glad you'll be getting started soon!! I'm looking forward to going through this process with you, although it looks like I'll be a little behind.

Well, I really don't want to be here at all..... But, that said, I'm glad it's with you guys (although, wait, I wish you guys weren't here either....) I'm going to meet with my new RE on January 25, and I'm hoping to start my third IVF cycle in February. A lot will depend on how my body responds to the methotrexate for the ectopic, and we may need to wait until March, but for now, I thought I'd pop in here and cheer everyone along.
