Hi-lo ladies! Looks like I will definitely absolutely be joining you wonderful group of ladies this year.

We had our RE appointment and our only option is going to be IVF with ICSI.

I keep joking around that we are looking to "finance our kid" this year! haha. I have to laugh. otherwise I cry.

But we are broken...both of us. He has MFI and I have 1 blocked tube. Other than my blocked tube - I DON'T think there's anything else wrong with me.

My doc also told me that i HAVE to lose weight and get to a healthy BMI before she'll do it. Currently I'm at 193 - after gaining BACK all 33 pounds I lost doing low carb 2 years ago...

SO I'm back on low-carb and my wonderful incredible husband (who would start IVF tomorrow if we could...) is just so incredibly supportive He's been making me low-carb dinners the last couple of nights so I could go to our basement and exercise immediately after work.

I just gotta tell myself "bread"? or "baby"?...Yeah I think I'll take the latter!

Course I also want to wait because I'm going to Europe for 3 weeks in April!! 1st week is a personal vacation to London and Paris and the 2nd and 3rd week I'm working at our office in Geneva, Switzerland! Then we'll start IVF come summer (we'll also thankfully have some big debt paid off next month so it'll be easier to "finance our kid" come summer...)

So anyways - this whole IVF thing...
So while I know a little about IVF and the fact that I'm gonna be pumpin' myself up full of drugs...what DO I have to look forward to? I'd love to hear your experiences, if you're willing to share!

welcome! I'm your host, jen. We're currently on an MA break due to finances and the military. We're dealing with severe MFI and chose to go the route of donor sperm over IVF because of cost. Best of luck with your journey and hopefully some of the IVF ladies can chime in with advice. We do have an entire subforum dedicated to IVF as well.

Hello & Welcome! I'm currently waiting to start my injections to do my first IVF cycle after 3 failed IUIs. I go tomorrow for bw & u/s to see if I can start tomorrow. IVF requires lots of meds and injections. I'm just starting (hopefully tomorrow) so I'll be able to give more advice this time next week when I'm a hormonal, emotional mess pumped up with hormones...God help DH!
Stick around this board tho. There are so many knowledgable women!!!

thanks ladies!! my first step towards IVF is losing the 33 pounds I gained back after going off of low carb...so i'm back on LC full force. the doc wants me to be in a "healthy metabolic range" in order to do IVF...

So I'm sure I'll be posting a LOT more here come summer!
