I started my second cycle on Sunday. Using 10IU lucrin, 450 IU Gonal-F followed by 1 ml saizen.
Day 6 LH blood test on Friday and day 9 blood and scan next Monday.
Last cycle my day 6 LH was fine, but by day 9 my LH dropped to 0.5 and I had to start injecting luveris.
If all goes well, I should be looking at EC taking place on 18 July. I will be using PICSI and Embryogen this cycle.
Wishing all the other ladies the best of luck! Looking forward to going through this cycle with you all!! The exchange of experiences should be fun! I hope we all walk away with our BFP!
Well I have my progesterone gel, that looks like a fun thing to have to give myself for the next 2 weeks
Egg collection was yesterday and total rubbish!! I don't know what i was expecting but I felt like total shut afterward! I'm still a little gingerly but feeling much better than what I was.
10 eggs were collected and only 3 made it overnight. I'm gutted. I really hoped we were going in with super guns blazing and amazing chances but it just made me realize how **** of a chance we have of conceiving naturally.
To be perfectly honest I'm feeling really resentful toward my husband too, why didn't he go two rounds and get more sperm? why didn't he look into his health and the impact it has on sperm production earlier? I'm hoping it's just the emotional experience and drugs talking and it will all blow over if we get a bfp. But until then
@mightymama - sorry you're feeling deflated.. I, too, felt like **** when they only got two eggs, even tho they counted 8 follies... Those 6 others had nothing in them....
What did you mean when you said your husband could have gone two rounds? Do they let them give as many samples as he likes before egg collection? If that's the case, I'm going to get my hubby to do that....
Mightymama I'm also having a transfer today......feeling pretty excited! I had epu last Friday where they collected 7 eggs and 5 of them fertilised. This is my first round of IVF after 3.5 years of ttc and no pregnancies. In a way, I'm looking forward to the 2WW since the first ten days of this cycle were filled with injections and blood tests and scans.....it'll be nice not to have to do anything!
Mightymama I'm due to have a blood test Monday week. I don't think I'll poas beforehand because whatever the outcome I won't believe it till the blood tests. I think I'll take the day off too since I'm likely to spend the day crying whether I'm pregnant or not!
How are you finding the crinone??
@mightmama @Jane16 I'm in the 2ww too! I had my transfer on Monday and my BT will be on Friday!
I feel the same way about poas Jane! I've got one in the bathroom but figured there was no point.
Oh well, halfway point for me now!
I had my transfer yesterday so I am also on the TWW. Yesterday I was so scared I was going to do something wrong. I have woken much more calm today thank goodness. Not sure if I will buy a test yet. I have spent so much wasted money on tests, OPK, vitamins over the years.
