    Default Anyone starting IVF April/May?

    Hello Ladies,

    I just got off the phone from my lovely IVF nurse and we have worked out our timeline which puts me at starting my first round of IVF in the last week of April... exciting!! Seems like forever away but luckily I have lots of distractions in the meantime (a trip with DH to hawaii, friends wedding (i'm bridesmaid!), trip interstate to surprise DH's best mate for his 30th and a trip down memory lane on a family holiday with my parents, DH, my brother and his GF) So lots to keep me busy until we start.

    I was wondering if anyone else is starting around april/may? Would love to have some buddies to go through it with! and would love to know your stories on your journey to IVF.

    Good luck ladies.

    Hi there!
    I'm currently in middle of a cycle as we speak, but just wanted to stop in and say congratulations on sorting a date! Now relax and enjoy the next couple of months because it will fly by..

    Hi Jb2011 congrats on getting a date to start! I am also starting a cycle in April.

    I have done one previous stim cycle in 2010 and 3? FETs in 2010/2011, all BFN. I have had a big long break for over a year and am ready to get back into it all this year!

    Cycle will be starting sometime mid-April.
    Good luck for starting your cycle!

    Hi jb2011, I'll be doing my second cycle in late march/April. Not sure if i'll be going FET or fresh ICSI.... I have one frostie but think I wanna get some more in the bank. Will know more in a week or so after we meet my FS to discuss our failed 1st cycle..

    Hi JB, I started injecting on Australia Day and wrapped it all up last week with a BT showing 'inconclusive' (ie. chemical pregnancy as AF had reared her ugly head). To confirm, I have another BT tomorrow.

    I have to sit out this cycle to let my body recoup from all the hormones, so hope to start late March all over again. As mentioned before, I want to do another fresh cycle (I'm a sucker for punishment) rather than use the frosty. As you know, age decreases your success rate, so banking up my frosties now theoretically means my chance of success will remain at 50% even in a few years ... although so far, I've not been all that successful! hmmm....

    Drugs wise, I was on Gonal F, Orgalutran and the booster Ovidrel. I wasn't exceptionally moody (although DH thinks I'm a moody b*tch at the best of times), but I was more teary than usual. My biggest concern was just feeling generally a bit 'blah' and I had some impressive bloating - ie looked about 4 months pregnant (so unfair for us IVFers)!

    Where you going in Hawaii!? We were in Maui and Honolulu this time last year... I want to go back!

    DH & I are going to Oahu (north Shore and west coast) and then to Maui (Napili) with my Mum and 2 aunties!! we went to the 4 islands for our honeymoon so now going back to explore Oahu more... we LOVED Hawaii... think it might become our holiday spot more often, esp now that there is direct flights from Melb!!

    Where abouts in Melb are you Sara? Which IVF clinic are you at? Our FS is through Monash so we are going with them, have all been lovely so far!

    I understand wanting to "bank up" would be good to go through the pain now and hopefully get more frosties for now and a sibling later on so you don't have to go through the injects again in a few years! I really hope it all works for you this time. it's a tough gig isn't it? "Everything happens for a reason"... I am trying to continue to live by that!

    Hope you're having a nice day xx
