@VickyP not long to go hun !!
This thread is a little quiet lately, would love to know what stage everyone is up to now?? Anybody stimming/PUPO/waiting ?????
No natural luck this month so I suppose will start stimming on the weekend
No natural luck for me either, but AF finally arrived last night so ready to start my natural FET! I'm really bad at calculations, would anyone be able to help know what CD my scans and transfer is likely to be just to help plan around work? I think I will be triggering on day 10, but not sure.
Morning... Thought I might come back seeing as I am still on this journey 12mths now with Primary so I could probably answer questions on here and another hand of support is always a good thing. I don't really recognise anyone though..
Sorry to see @SimSam8 Its always handy to have a back up and why not with a natural FET which Im in right now. I can tell you Ive had 4 blood tests so far at CD7, 10, 12, and 14 (which is tomorrow) and a scan on CD12. I have no drug support at all so it feels like Im not cycling at all. FET is so much easier on the stress levels. We already know we have an embryo so thats the hardest part out of the way.
@Giraffez We all still hope for a natural and if you are young its very much possible. Best of luck this weekend starting up again. New cycle new hope xx
Congrats @Cassidy I do remember you! Nice work! Finally your body decided to join the cause. Thats a nice number too. xx
@Billie2 actually I'm feeling terrified of starting Ivf. All these jabs (the gonal was ok but heard the orgulatran and the clexane are not), not knowing how I'll respond and the thought that I might not have any frosties by the end of it. And I still think my lining needs improvement at 7 although the doc thinks it's fine.
I was so hoping I have pre-ivf natural luck sigh
Btw when did u ladies start the orgalutran?
@Giraffez it is scarey and I remember my first cycle I honestly didnt think I had it in me to inject. But I wanted a baby more than I was scared of the injection. I would take my Bose speaker and blare music while I did the injections. Helped me cope and I had a little dance too..haha..
I used orgalutran first cycle and I found it fine. I started my fsh on CD2, and orgalutran was CD6. Short little needles. Pinch hard, jab quick, and inject slow. I did ice my injection site before injecting the first cycle, by by my 3rd cycle I was on 3 injections a night (2 had to be mixed up, centrotide and luveris, powder and liquid) and just whacked them in without thinking like I was buttering toast. It gets easier believe me. I didn't have any frosties till my 3rd cycle. Frosties are absolute gold and you are very lucky if you get to that point. I have gotten through IVF by expecting the worst, and hoping for the best.
As for lining.. my scan yesterday showed my lining to be 7mm at CD12. I was very disappointed. When I stim, my lining is 8mm by CD7. You may find that your lining is much thicker during a stim cycle. I hope so for you though.
Ask away.. I am happy to give back to a thread that helped me through tough times. xx
My partner and I have been with Monash since April and are looking to change to Primary IVF in Sydney. I must say I do love Monash but alot of $$$$ later (even in such a short amount of time) we thought Primary may be a better option especially if our journey ends up being a long one.
Is anyone with Primary IVF Sydney? How flexible are they with doing blood tests elsewhere? Any experiences people can share? Favourite specialists?
thanks in advance
