I wish you the best of luck, hope your appointment went well today. I am one of the others sharing those appointments. LOL The worst call I got was when I was in hospital offering me an early appointment... I had to turn it down!

I am OFFICIALLY on my first IVF cycle. Had my first FSH needle tonight and was pleasantly surprised as it wasn't as bad as my clexane needle. Naturally enough no respose in terms of a reaction as yet.
But YEAH!!!! TTC!!!

Woot Woot - congratulations on your first day of IVF I will keep my fingers crossed for you! Thanks for reading some of my blog :-) Writing down all of my feelings keeps me sane. You were reading page two so that appointment was a while ago. We're all (the three of us) due to have some more appointments this week. Counselling, Simone, nurse chat... Then we're all done - our egg donor and I have to go on the pill and then we begin - probably around July

Thanks heaps, it is exciting. I am also afraid of how I will feel if it doesn't work- which at my stage in life is a real possibility.

After 3 days of FSH, tomorrow is my first ultrasound AKA DILDO CAM!!!
Wonder what my follicles will be doing? Grow babies grow.

I think it's great that you're aware that it might not work. I'm guessing your FS has been pretty straight with you. You won't know until you try I guess.
I was 28 when I had my first IVF cylce and because of my age I thought it would work first time. It didn't and it still hasn't. I was devasted. But I just kept thinking that a lot of worse things happen in the world and this was nothing. DH and I talked about what our next steps were and we've stuck to that plan.
Good luck with your US tomorrow. I find that taking DH in with me is a big help emotionally. He usually sits up near my head and writes down the sizes of the follicles.

Good luck fortitude! god i feel like i have had a zillion of those lovely dildo cams. My first two cycles i had one every 2nd day, funny how you just get used to it! If you just throw everything at it, at least you'll know that you've given it your best shot.
Rittzy, i love your blog by the way plus christian the lion gets me every time! I really hope it all works out for you guys, you've already been down such a hard road. Sometimes i feel like we should all get t-shirts "i survived ivf!" hehe

Im on 2 x ralovera & 2 progynova 4 x daily, 2 crinone gels and 1 progesterone pessary every day, and 1 clexane jab. I feel like a walking pharmacy. Even so, i have no idea if all of that is keeping my progesterone over 40? I'm guessing so as my bbs are still huge and tender, areolas are dry and have the other symptoms too. Blood test is on the 14th may.

So here I am after 4 days of FSH injections. Feel the same- my usual sore tummy/back from AF. Struggling a bit with drinking the 2-3L of water they have asked me to drink. Not a big water drinker, it's cold and drinking that much makes me feel like a water balloon.
Had my US yesterday. Was disappointed with follicles at first (2left, 4 right) but my pals here have assured me that is actually a good response after so few days and at my age. Besides, I just need one that sticks- not a footy team. FS has increased my FSH dose from 250 to 275. So maybe a footy team will appear anyway?
Compared to my clexane needle the FSH needle is a breeze- can't even feel it go in. Yes! Joked with DH last night "bet you wish you were me... 2 injections a night, dildo cam! and soon I will have the antagonist so 3 needles a night, cool fun! bet you are jealous!"
My journey thus far is smooth and uneventful and I am glad for it.

Hey 40tude, I injected for 18 days and experienced no symptoms at all, with the exception of fatigue in the second week. BUT, in saying that, I'm having EPU in 30 minutes :/
