Just doing a quick mini-roll call for the IVFers.... there seem to be a lot of you out there.

When do you/did you start your stims?

How many embies are you hoping to transfer?

What are you expected dates for retrieval, transfer, beta days?

Are you excited? Nervous? What does DH think?

Have you told your family yet? If yes, what do you think?

I am a weird case. I started my IVF process in January, but when it came time for retrieval, last week, the RE didn't feel that we had enough to go in for. So it turned into an IUI. I am gonna answer this anyway!

When do you/did you start your stims?
I stimmed Feb 2 through Feb 17!

How many embies are you hoping to transfer?
We had about 5 follicles that looked "good" when we did the IUI.

What are you expected dates for retrieval, transfer, beta days?
IUI was 2/19 and my beta is on 3/5.

Are you excited? Nervous? What does DH think?
I am just READY to be pregnant! DH is very excited. Even though my very last stims & IUI cycle back in July was very similar to this, and a bust, I've got a good feeling about this one!

Have you told your family yet? If yes, what do you think?
My sister knows. For my last failed IVF, I told my sister, parents and in-laws. I just don't feel like having to repeat bad news if we get the BFN on this.

When do you/did you start your stims?
Starting lupron in under two weeks... they still haven't called me about my test results. It will be one week on Thursday since we had them done so it is early.

How many embies are you hoping to transfer?
Kind of torn on this... most likely two because I need this to work and it will give me a better chance. BUT, I am not sure how I will handle twins if two stick!

What are you expected dates for retrieval, transfer, beta days?
No dates set, we are jumping in fast. Clinic was open and dr asked how fast we wanted to move and I said yesterday Will have a better idea of dates once they call with test results

Are you excited? Nervous? What does DH think?
Excited and nervous... scared that if it doesn't work I am kind of at the end of my road. DH is not as on board as me. Don't get me wrong he wants to do this but he thinks all these MA doctors are out for our money and he doesn't trust them fully. The cost is just so much for one shot. I pray I get some snowbabies too!

Have you told your family yet? If yes, what do you think?
My immediate family knows we were heading towards IVF (not a big deal to them), but I never said dates. Not really telling anyone. DH told one person at work that we were seeing a specialist, but not details. He works in a very small office, so they notice when he is gone the whole day! I just don't want the pressure of everyone knowing or even just a few people knowing. Not the stigma, just the let down if it doesn't work.

No ma'am! I feel like I've already gone through such an emotional roller coaster, I don't want to add any more stress to the mix. I am a chicken!!

When do you/did you start your stims? Don't know yet, I will not recieve as many stims as the average IVF patient, because of doing IVM.

How many embies are you hoping to transfer? We will be transferring 2

What are you expected dates for retrieval, transfer, beta days? Don't know exactly... My actual IVF (IVM) cycle will be starting around March 29th

Are you excited? Nervous? What does DH think? I am excited, I just got the approval for IVM from our RE today! I am also nervous. I haven't told DH that we got approved, I will tell him tonight.

Have you told your family yet? If yes, what do you think? They all know that we have been waiting to get started, and I recently told them the estimated start date. They are all just great about it.

Glenda... you should tell us a bit more about your IVM cycle. I know there are probably some that don't know the difference between that and IVF. And my fingers are crossed!!!

Tracey ~ Well then I'll just wait impatiently for the 5th to come around... only 10 more sleeps! Keep us posted on any early pregnancy symptoms!!!

I'm just waiting for the witch!!!!

When do you/did you start your stims?
I should be starting Friday or Saturday- after my baseline appointment, depending on if the witch shows tomorrow or Thursday! (I'm 14dpo today)

How many embies are you hoping to transfer?
As long as we have 2 healthy embies, we'll be transferring two!!

What are you expected dates for retrieval, transfer, beta days?
Assuming the is here tomorrow on schedule, my retrieval should be March 10th(ish), transfer should be March 13th(ish) and beta would be around March 24th. That's very tentative depending on how I respond to stims!

Are you excited? Nervous? What does DH think?
I'm very excited. I feel like we've been waiting FOREVER now to start this. But ironically, we'll have been working with my RE exactly one year around the time of transfer. I think that has to mean GOOD things! DH is hopeful but way more grounded than me.

Have you told your family yet? If yes, what do you think?
My parents know and my FIL knows. My parents are very supportive because they, too, struggled with infertility (Mom was only able to have me). My FIL is hoping for the best. We've been trying to find a good time to tell my MIL, but we haven't yet. She doesn't even know we've been struggling with TTC (doesn't even know we've been working on a baby!- I truly wanted to surprise her with a + test one day), but it's time to bring her in and have her support. I have a feeling she'll be super supportive. I think that conversation is on the agenda this weekend.
