Sarah...sorry for what you are going through. I know a growth is scary and not something you want to hear, but maybe it is a blessing to find out before you had the transfer. I had to have a fibroid removed from my ovary in February before we started IVF too. The doctor didn't really think it would be a problem with IVF, but he told me they weren't suppose to leave growths alone while treating infertility. Long story short, my fibroid was much larger than expected and large part of it was hidden behind other organs. It was actually pressing down on my uterus and had it distorted. My doctor said that it could have effected implantation, and if I did become pregnant, I would have a lot of discomfort and possible other problems caused by the fibroid. I was told to wait a cycle before we started IVF, and I ended up naturally conceiving (after 4 years of ttc) during that cycle, but it was an ectopic. After all my obstacles, I was finally able to do my transfer 6/23. I know the wait stinks, but it is always better safe than sorry. Good luck and I will keep you in my prayers.

Just finished the MRI. It was SO cold and much smaller then I expected. My dr won't get the results till Wednesday or Thursday. I hate waiting.

Congrats Jennifer!!

Sarah, I am so sorry you are going through that, you will be in my thoughts and hoping everything will go ok for you! I know I am new to this site but I just know it will be ok!!

Yes, in that picture of all the meds, that is what my dining table looks like but along with 5 boxes of Endometrian. I started the meds on Friday evening. I was so scared I would do something but it really isn't too bad. It is pretty easy. The only thing I am having an issue with is this massive headache I am getting from the Menopur, but nothing Tylenol wont take care of. I am still a little overwhelmed but the nurses at my clinic are so helpful, along with reading this. I went to the doc. today for my first US after starting the meds. I know it is still early but I thought I would have developed more follicles, is there an average amount of follicles that most people develop on these meds? I had 4 on both ovaries, so a total of 8 so far. The nurse said it was still early and I could develop more, I hope I do. But wanted to know if that was normal.

Thanks,
Brooke

I hope you get answers soon. I hate the wait too. My clinic is really good, and I will have the results back by lunch, but I will still be on pins and needles during the wait,lol

Oh Sarah, I'm so sorry you have this added to your plate after all you have been through, but I agree, you don't want anything that could possibly hurt the implantation process. Keep us posted...I'll be thinking about you!

Jennifer OMG YAY, CONGRATS....I want a picture!!!!!!!!!

Brooke, you will get more follicles. I had only I think 6 to begin with this last cycle and by the end I had 11 eggs.

I think that is a great number to start with. At this point they are all tiny and there are more in there, but not able to measure them. Everything crossed for you

Leah, I took a picture with my phone, but I don't have a photo site to upload it to. Praying everything goes great, and I promise to create an account and upload pics of the ultrasound.

Brooke - I don't remember how many follicles I had on my first scan, but I know they will grow and develop really fast! You will see on your next scan, and by the time you get to the last one, you will be surprised! Even on the u/s, they can't always count the exact number. It's not until the retrieval when you will get the exact number. Good luck and I hope those follicles grow!

Jennifer- can't wait until tomorrow! Update us as soon as you find out! Fingers crossed!

Tina - congrats on getting 14 eggs! That is a great number! Can't wait to hear the fertilization report! Will you do a 3 or 5 day transfer?

Leah - any update on you? When will you start your cycle again?

Tina! That is fantastic! Can't wait to hear your update tomorrow of your fert report!

Cassandra...I think I am 8dpo...so hopefully AF will show soon and I can start BCP's and then the FET.....how long were you on bcp and lupron for your FET? I will start bcp on cd3 and then they will schedule me for a sonohystogram to make sure it all looks good inside and then they will set a schedule for the FET. I'm ready to get the show on the road...and then part of me is SO SCARED to do this again and 1) fail or 2) have another M/C.

The plan is a 5 day transfer which would put us transferring Sunday. If our embryos don't develop well we will transfer Friday.

Tina...14 is awesome. I can't wait to hear your feet report.

Jenn...Can't wait to see your us pics tomorrow.

Leah...My donor egg cycle was like a FET. I was on bcp then overlapped it with Lupron for a couple days. I think once I started Lupron, it was 2 weeks until transfer. One thing they didn't tell me that I got nervous about was that once I stopped the bcp (even while on Lupron) I had a light period. That was exactly two weeks before my thaw so it made sense after I thought about it. Good luck!!!!!

Mandy, I only have a beta tomorrow and was promising to upload a picture of an ultrasound once we have one. Have you had your transfer yet, or where are you on your journey?

Tina, good luck and can't wait to hear the fertility report. You are exactly two weeks behind me.

I hope everyone else is tracking along great and can't wait to hear the updates.

So I got a call today and it went like this.

Nurse "the dr reviewed your labs and wants you to come in tomorrow for an ultrasound and to proceed with this cycle"
Me "so did he get my MRI results back?"
Nurse "yes and he said were good to continue on. Have you been taking your meds still?"
Me "yes"
Nurse "can you come in tomorrow"

Anyway you get the gist. I go in tomorrow at 1:30. Praying what's in my uterus is nothing but identifiable by the dr tomorrow when I see him. Can't wait to go in. I got so much hope today. Praying all goes well tomorrow. Will update in the evening.

Thank you for all the prayers.

Tina can't wait to hear how they fertilize.

Jennifer update us with the beta. So exciting.

So today I'm stalking Tina for her feet report and Jenn for her beta numbers.

Sarah, I'm happy that you're proceeding. Good luck at the ultrasound today. Sending you good vibes.

AFM: I had my transfer on Sat. 2 embryos (8 & 9 cells) for a Day-3. I went this morning for blood work to check levels. When they call today I'll find out if I have any frozen embryos.
