Hello Ladies! Can I join your thread? I've just discovered it, I've been on another site's forum in the long term ttc and have felt very out of place becuase this is my first IVF cycle!
I'm on CD3 and started my injections today (yuck!) and have my first scan tomorrow. I'm so excited to be finally starting!
i have done 2 ivf cycles with orgalutran. And omg yes painful. Stings like crazy. Lucky it's only once a day. Just imagine that baby and what your doing this all for, that's what I think about when I have to do it. Also inject the liquid very very slowly. Doesn't sting as much if you do it super slow. Goodluck. It is sore for sure but its only a few days. Positive thinking
best of luck.
Ladies, I just wanted to wish good luck to every one of us, to those who just waiting to start, those who injecting and everyone else. Let it be our licky cycle.
Beanie87, Im feeling dizzy on GonalF too and ver lightheaded, but , as the girls noticed earlier, when you drink heaps of water you feel less dizzy. Good luck everyone, Im off to my second ultrasound and blood test. Feeling bloated already and its only my 6 th day ....
Hello, can I join? I haven't read all 400 and something posts though!
Here's my backstory: I'm 23, DP (female) is 26. We've done 3 rounds of IUI, one which ended up in a chemical pregnancy and 2 BFNs so onto IVF for us!
I got my af yesterday (today will be cd1) so I will call the clinic later to book on. I really don't know what IVF will entail (I get the basics, but not sure about the nitty gritty) so looking forward to speaking to my Clinic and finding out.
It's a bit daunting.
We will be using unknown (identity release) donor sperm for our cycles. I have no apparently fertility problems.
Good luck to everyone! X
Well.. I had my bt and ultrasound this morning. Its kind of good and bad news. I have lots of follicles (I think there was about 15), but they are worried I am going to over stimulate. Nurse said that I have lots measuring ahead for this early. So they have to wait for the results from my BT this afternoon to find out what to do next.
She said they will probably either go ahead as normal and risk OHSS and just do the EPU early on Thursday (which will mean less mature eggs). Or they will do it on Friday, but give me a different trigger shot that will help to prevent the OHSS. And they will probably also lower my dose of gonal f. But I think this means waiting a month for them to put an embryo back in. I think either way, I may have to wait if I am too stimulated.
What sounds crazy to me is that she said if we do it thursday you might get 4-5 mature eggs. If we do it friday you might get 10-15 mature eggs. One day can make that much difference?!
So I guess all the dizziness and tears are for a reason- she said it was all totally normal. Thanks for the advice girls, I've been drinking heaps of water.. I have 3 water bottles on rotation in the fridge
Welcome 4furbabies and rainbowrd. Nice to have you both. I am a newbie to IVF too.
I would like to add that you ladies that work full-time and do this are courageous! I really don't know how you do it. Between the headaches and the light-headedness I am not looking forward to being back at work this week (part time). I just want to curl up on the couch and sleep. Sooooo sleepy.

So I have my first appt on the 31st to make sure I've ovulated and to start the blocking drugs? Hahaha going to need to get the hang of the lingo aren't I?!
Kind of looking forward to 3 weeks of not thinking about ovulating!
And obviously scraping every last penny we have to afford it :/
Welcome 4furbabies & rainbowrd 😃
Beanie, I went through that possible scenario last cycle. The main priority is that you are well, my FS told me that I lose nothing by doing an FET when my body is rid of all the hormones. Time will tell, hope you're doing ok with all the h2o!!
I hope everyone is doing good today!
