Timing WWYD — The Bump
Secondary IF

Timing WWYD

So as it stands I am poised to start BCPs once AF arrives and then move on to ivf next cycle, so end of March.  Its not the greatest timing work-wise.  But March/April is better than May/June. So if we don't do it March/April then we'd not do it until July.  I am a teacher and so I do have the summer 'off' if you count being home f/t with a 3 y.o. a break (I don't) but at least I don't have to juggle a work schedule with 1hr round trips to the clinic. I could put DD in drop-in d/c so I can do the appointments alone.

Timewise, I'd like to get things started ivf-wise sooner than later since I will be 35 in October. But a couple of months shouldn't change things too much should it?  

Would you wait or forge ahead?

Re: Timing WWYD

  • Personally, by the time I am ready to forge ahead with IVF, there will be very little that would sway my decision.  If you are all lined up to start, I say go for it.  It sounds like there will be issues and challenges no matter when you do it, so you might as well go for the March/April schedule.

  • So, I'll be 34 in oct w 2 1/2 year old now and PreK teacher. We were working w our nurse to time ER & ET for spring break. I totally get the madness! For me I'd forge ahead- I can't wait anymore. Think about July you- really put yourself in that situation- would you be kicking yourself for waiting or glad you waited for some stress to calm down after school year? If July you is cool- then waiting a couple months would possibly only change a birthday- but if you have stress about waiting and feel now is the time- then you'll only beat yourself up. I'm sorry if that doesn't help- but this is the conversation I had with myself about starting up here soon! As you can see from my siggy, I'm going! Good luck in whatever you choose- and stay strong, you'll make a good decision for you and your family :)

  • I would go for it. You don't know if it will work the first cycle (though hopefully so). So, if you are cycling march/April and it doesn't work, then you'll have to do a prep month after that, then you'll cycle again may/June, prep, then cycle again July/August. So that gives you three shots at it working before the new school year.

    You are only promised now, so I vote act now, don't wait.
    Trying for #2 with IVF after damage done in a D&C left me with one functioning (but too scarred) ovary and tube to get pregnant safely without assistance. It's a really, really long story, but that is the gist of it.  We have one daughter (whose c-section birth started this roller coaster) born in 2012 after a miscarriage in 2011. 
    Failed 1st attempt at IVF (Fresh ET day 3, 1 frozen embryo saved) in December 2013.  
    Failed 2nd attempt at IVF (Fresh ET day 5, 2 frozen embryos saved) in February 2014.

    I'm the same way! I say go for it. And I don't consider staying home with a toddle full time a break either! Good luck with whatever you choose.

  • You do not want to wait with IVF, your numbers and fertility can suddenly change as you get older.  I hope and pray this works for you and this is all moot.
