I am not sure. I think I just O'd and so AF won't be here for another 2 weeks, then I can start BCP's on CD3. And that is when I can schedule my sonohystogram follow up to make sure everything looks good. I don't know if I will be on bcp's 2 weeks or longer. I am guessing the end of July, but will know more at my follow up meeting. Everything is waiting on stupid AF...like ALWAYS! GRRRRR

Good luck and HAPPPPY BDAY TOO

Hi everyone,

I am new to this. But reading all of your posts gives me hope. You are all so supportive to one another!!

I am about to start my first IVF cycle. I took my last BCP last night (June 24) and start all the meds on June 28, I am so excited but so nervous at the same time. I have high hopes this will work. =) We have done 3 IUI's and all negatives. I gave my body a rest for a few months after the IUI's and started BCP in May. With the help of a new doc. I can only keep a positive outlook on this, it's going to work! =). I have done lots of research of IVF's but it is still a learning process for me, so reading all of your posts helps. And I am still learning all of the lingo and abbreviations. =)

I wish everyone luck in this journey!!

Brooke

I posted earlier today, but it said something about needing to be approved my the moderator first. So please don't think I'm crazy if my original posts shows up after this one. It is all the moderator's fault,lol.

Thanks everyone. I didn't know what PUPO means and had to look it up. I've never thought of it that way, and it brought a tear to my eye....maybe it's the hormones,lol

Mandy..my beta is July 5th...which seems like forever. I have done a lot of research on 5 day blast transfers, and the pregnancy rate is very similar with one or two embryos. However, I would be concerned too and was considering transferring 3 in hopes of a BFP. I would talk to your doctor about your concerns.

Brooke...Hello and welcome. These ladies have helped me so much too. I look forward to sharing your success too.

Leah..I'm excited too, and newer to this group. I know a lot of us have suffered a loss or got a BFN with their last IVF cycle, but I'm hoping Cassandra's BFP was the start to all of us getting BFP. I'm really praying hard for all of us.

I hope everyone else is doing great and moving right along too.

Thank you ladies for the warm welcome!

This is my first IVF and I have never seen so many meds! haha! When we did the IUI's, we were just on Clomid, so this is a lot of medicine but whatever helps! =) I start them on Friday. I will be on Bravelle and Menopur and many others. We go in to the doc. this afternoon to get all the information on the meds and what they are all for. I have looked up all the meds and did research but am still a little confused on them all. I am sure that will change after today though. =)

Jennifer, I had to look up what PUPO means too and that is a cute saying! Best of luck to you!!!

I took pictures too! I have tried to document all aspects of this crazy journey. Guess I'm just trying to cope.

Welcome Brooke! I definitely remember the overwhelming feeling looking at the monster box of meds. Especially since I had no clue what to do with each! Best wishes and baby dust for this cycle. Can't wait to hear how you are progressing!

Jennifer how are you feeling?

AFM- ER should be very early next week. Hopefully we get a good harvest this time.

Tina...Thanks for checking in on me. I had some cramping Sunday evening, my ovaries are still sore, my breasts are fuller and sensitive, but other than that, I'm fine. I made the mistake of testing early and started yesterday, and there may be a faint line, but I've seen faint lines before (or think I seen faint lines before) that turned out to be BFN. I really wish I would have waited.

Good luck on your ER. I hope you have lots of great eggs.

Leah...I'm 5dpt of two blasts. I hope it is a real line too, but I've had so many "faint lines" that I'm not labeling it a positive yet.

Your little girl is beautiful.

I had my faint positive at 4dp5dt. Jennifer - I am hoping that is a positive for you. I didn't believe mine either... it was the JM girls that had to convince me it was real.

Just stopping in to say good luck ladies! Jennifer - sounds like that may be a good sign for you! I didn't test until 7dp5dt, but it came up right away and was dark! So, if I tested at 4 or 5dpt, it probably would of been faint too! Please post a pic!!!

Good luck to all the other ladies!

As Kim did, I will post an update on the main board! I hope it gives you all hope and confidence that this will work!

Thanks everyone!!!! OK, I'm now confident it saying I'm PREGNANT. I retested a few hours ago with a First Response and it quickly showed a positive. I tried to post the picture on here but couldn't figure it out. I'm still praying really hard for all of us and can't wait to see who has the next BFP.

Hi ladies. I will catch up in a second.

I got some bad news on Wednesday and have just been losing my mind trying to process it all. At my ultrasound they found a large mass in my uterus. It might be a fibroid or an adenoma. I go for an MRI tomorrow to try and identify it. If its a fibroid the RE suggested I have it removed to better our chances. If its an adenoma we can just delay this cycle a little but continue on. Im so at a loss over this. Nothing like what I was expecting when I went in there. Why do there have to be so many **** obstacles? Im just so overwhelmed. I should be doing my transfer on Tuesday, and instead I am getting word on whats growing in my uterus.
