Just an update from me.
AF arrived today, as I knew she would.... Rang WFC. So this is cycle day 1. Most of you probably take the pill, but Cecilia is happy for me not to as my periods are clock work.....
So my schedule is:
Lucrin injections start 27 March
Puregon Injections start 4 Apri
EPU approx 14-20 th April
Have been on DHEA most of this year and it will be just over 3 months when I have EPU.....
One more go on this crazy roller coaster and then thats it for me.
tls242 - hello and welcome . Best wishes on your first oi/iui journey, I hope you get started soon
Bubs4kylee - So glad AF arrived so you can get ready for your next cycle . Hopefully DHEA will work wonders for you, I believed it help me with my last cycle. I was a bit sad to read that you're giving it one more go and that's it, I really hope this cycle works for you anyway but I would hate for you to give up. Although I do understand the emotional and financial effects IVF has on a couple.
I have now officially started my first IVF cycle. @ WFC through Rachel Bradbury.
I am sooo nervous, but also ridiculously excited!!
I am now Day 9 and taking the pill.. (very strange experience.. first time in my life on the pill)
Collect Lucrin injections 20 March
Collect 2nd Injections 28 March
U/S booked for 6th April
EPU approx 09-13th April
This has been such a long journey that I am feeling rerally good that things are progressing, but the waiting even now is killing me, how am I going to handle the 2WW? I find myself constantly counting down only 11 more days till i pick up the injections, 4 more weeks and I could be PG.
How do you stop these things running through your head constantly??
Hope everyone is having wonderful days and an easy time through whatever stage of your cycle in.
Hello Jem, I'm so excited for you, I wish you all the best, sounds like you've had a long hard journey to this point, big hugs to you . I wish I could give some advice regarding the waiting, I am so impatient and find the constant waiting hard . I am waiting to cycle again in July and that decision is already killing me. All I can say is take each day as it comes and try and do as many things to fill in the time, otherwise you could go crazy.
Hi mumtochris. Thank youso much for your kind words. It's so nice to have a place to come and know your not alone in all this. Work is really busy atm so I was hoping that would keep my mind off it, but all it seems to do is stress me out and make me think I could possibly be out of here in less than 12 months. :s
I am impatient to.. We saw FS the first time in September, but I had to have surgery and things done before we could start.. So I am over the moon to be starting now. I'm quit nervous about the Lucrin injections. It's not the administering it's getting the right amount into the syringe. I think that's going to be dh's job.
good luck to the ladys getting started hoping the read lots of bfp
afm- still waiting i did ring gay shananhan and she said she has notified dr smith with her report and she see no problem with me calling the nurses to arrange a appt i was over the moon only to get a call back from the nurses to let me know dr smith has not released our file and we cant arrange anything till he has done that
then i recieve a letter from dr smith requesting a base line pelvic ultra sound not sure what that means but i guess its better then sitting around waiting
i have also discovered i am 5 days late for af and have no sign of it showing i am never late it would be a miricale if we concieved on our own all of my internet cheapies are coming up neg with fmu so i assume my af is just out of wack hubby begs to differ
good luck ladys keep us updated
B4us - I hope you get your ultrasound really quickly so you can book your appointment!! I know all the waiting is stressful, I had to have a tone of tests and u/s and then a laparoscopy before I could book my appointment.
I will keep my fingers crossed that AF doesn't show up and your miracle has happened!! I had a 46 day cycle before my appointment (normally 31) I think because I was waiting for it to show up so I could start my cycle it decided to play games with me.
Jems - glad to hear work is keeping you busy, that definitely helps during all the waiting around. Good luck with all the injections, you'll be fine . DH will do a great job helping you and he'll feel a part of the process too which is nice.
Mrsjaguar - can't wait for AF to appear so you can start too .
b4us - sorry to hear about your delays hun. Have you booked in for your pelvic US yet? Hope your DH is right about why AF isn't showing up, maybe you could buy another test from the chemist and see how that goes? Hope she's late for a very good reason
AFM - I'm a bit of a nervous wreck actually. AF showed a week ago from my last cycle and I usually have it for 5 days (TMI - first 3 days heavy then it slows down). Well it lasted a whole week this time and it was starting to slow down but then yesterday afternoon I had extremely heavy bleeding and noticed some clotting (TMI - really dark red/black in colour) and have had bad cramping in my lower back. THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. If it's still like this tomorrow I will have to call my FS or see my GP. I wondered if any of my embies did try and implant but because I killed them with all that pineapple juice I drank they couldn't survive? Would like to think that's all it is, I hope my body isn't trying to tell me something else.
Enjoy the rest of the day everyone. Hope you all have a great week .
