Since I decided to move forward with another IVF cycle, I thought I’d start a thread for those of us doing IVF or FET in November or December.

Ok, so it seems I’m a little late for the Oct but early for the Nov cycle….I’m going to go ahead and post about my cycle anyway!

Since there are thoughts that BCP can actually over suppress us older women with DOR, my RE and I decided to skip the BCPs and go straight into stimming. So I had my first blood draw and ultrasound this morning….and I had 13 resting follicles!!! That’s the most I’ve had since I’ve been monitored!! My first cycle I had 8 resting follicles and in the end I produced 2 mature eggs…..so I’m cautiously getting more optimistic about this cycle!

First injection tonight!

Hi....just wanted to join you. I was diagnosed with endo a few years ago and now we are TTC withIVF. I'm SUPER nervous and excited at the same time. I start stims tomorrow. A huge box of meds arrived today. Best of luck in your journey. U/s scheduled for Thursday.

Hi and welcome! I totally understand how you feel! Though, this being my second cycle, I’ve lost most of the excitement and am more nervous than the first time.

How’d your first day of stims go? What meds are you using?

I just had my second monitoring appointment this morning. I’m a little worried because I have one follicle on my right ovary that’s a little larger than the rest, but the good news is that I have 10 that are just a little smaller and all about the same size, and then two that are quite a bite smaller. So basically, praying the larger one slows down to give the others time to catch up!


Hoping to have lots of good vibes and baby dust to this board!!!

Hi! My October IVF cycle was canceled so here I am. Last cycle we did the long Lupron protocol. Bcp, Lupron, 182.5 gonal f. I responded too quickly so they dropped my Lupron back. This caused my follicles to stop growing and some "disappeared". AF showed up this Saturday so I went in to make sure I was fully suppressed. I'm not. Lots of little follies and cysts (I'm a PCOSer) so we have to wait for AF to show again, which probably won't happen since I don't get it without provera, so I have to call in 4 weeks. I'll go in for an HCG test and then get some provera and will start over again. Hopefully I will have a transfer sometime in late December or early January.

Kaleigh – I’m sorry to hear your cycle was canceled! I just got some news from my RE’s office and I’m praying I won’t have to cancel this cycle!

It turns out the ultrasound tech was not being so forth coming during the ultrasound. She said I had one large one and 10 a little smaller….turns out I do have a lead follicle and it’s significantly larger than the rest…it’s 21 and my LH is 25….so I’m about to ovulate. Since this one is ready to ovulate and no others are even close to being ready, they don’t want to start me on Ganirelix to stop the ovulation, so she plan is to stop all meds and go back in for an ultrasound and blood work on Thursday. The hope is that I’ll ovulate this huge lead follicle by then and that the other 12 are still looking good and I’ll restart stimming and continue long as if nothing happened in the middle….not sure I like this plan at all. Ugh…not sure how this follicle got so big, we did an ultrasound before starting stims and it wasn’t there then! At least, I get the phone call before my acupuncture appointment, so we focused on getting this follicle to ovulate….praying it works …..but honestly, I’m losing all hope for this cycle

Hi Ladies!

Well, I started follistim injections yesterday and I was so nervous that I cried A LOT. I think I was overwhelmed with the process and all the meds but it's all worth it if I get a BFP!

Mee Mee - don't feel discouraged. I spoke with a friend last night that had IVF. She told me not to be down if it doesn't work the first time. It took her and her friend two cycles. She reminded me that the doctors are learning your body the first time and make adjustments thereafter. We will get there! Your follies sound promising to me

Mrs. J- Good luck and baby dust to you for your Dec/Jan cycle.

Hi Everyone,
Getting ready to start our first IVF cycle any day now. Waiting on AF to show so that we can start tests and hopefully a round by the end of November. I'm super nervous. TTC has not been going well for us. I'm 42 and getting a late start on the whole TTC thing due to complicated circumstances.
I think we're going to start with the atagonist protocol and I've been doing a ton of research to make sure I understand everything we're doing.
Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated from any of you ladies my age who've been through this process.

Hi! I'm Mandy. This is technically my 4th IVF cycle, but the first 2 were canceled. I actually got to a transfer of two 5 cell embryos in August, but a BFN!
I'm back in the saddle. Starting to check for ovulation tomorrow & priming this cycle with estrogen patches. Should start injections around Thanksgiving. I'm praying for a BFP right before Christmas! I'm staying positive, hopeful, and keep visualizing a new family for DH & I this summer!

Good luck to all of you ladies!

If you tell your first name in these threads, it's easier to keep track of everyone.

No trigger tonight, get to stim at least one more day This cycle being so “screwy” with the huge lead follicle at the beginning, my RE is concerned about my lining so she has been talking to me about possibly doing a “freeze all”. The concern is that my lining won’t support an implantation even with progesterone support. So more than likely we’ll be freezing the embryos from this cycle for a FET in January. So, yes I’m staying very positive that we will have embryos to freeze this time, but I’m also stressing out about a whole new lot of stress issues to deal with....ugh! But first things first, monitoring in the morning and most likely trigger tomorrow night and the retrieval on Saturday!

Again send good thoughts and vibes please!

Got an update on my embies….3 fertilized. I’m to start the PIO injections and Medrol like I’m doing a 3 day transfer, but will more than likely freeze for a FET in January…just depends on what my lining looks like.

Keep sending me good vibes and thoughts, and if you believe in prayer..please pray for my embies to continue growing healthy and strong for a successful cycle

Ok, I just got the call my 3 embies look healthy and are growing nicely. I was also told that their recommendation is to freeze, so I can stop the PIO and Mederol and now pray for a successful freeze for a transfer in January.

Hi Aimee...Haven't had a chance to look at this thread in a few weeks. 3 for an FET sounds great! I'm glad that you had 3 fertilize. I'm praying that 3 fertilize this time for me too!
