@rikiteacup Fingers crossed for you!
@drewsdarlin can you remind me where you are in the process? That’s great that your dr told you that about your AMH! Gives some hope!@PoeMasque thinking of you this weekend! Sending creepy internet congrats and hugs!!
@drewsdarlin wow what a journey! I’m sorry to hear of your losses but glad you have a plan. For some reason I thought I remembered you thinking about mini IVF but I may be confusing you with someone else. Will you start your first cycle soon then? I’m glad to answer any questions since I’ve done a few rounds.AFM only 2 active birth control pills left and can I tell you how happy that makes me? I really despise them and with all the IVF I try not to think of all the suppressed cycles we haven’t been able to just try naturally. Like what if in the end we find out IVF just didn’t work for us? Lots of pressure going into this last transfer. But I’m doing all my supplements, Brazil nuts, added maca root last night. Praying!!!
@drewsdarlin that retreat sounds so nice, and sounds like a great way to let go of stress and let positivity in! And yeah, wisdom tooth surgery combined with IVF doesn't sound good...I realize why I thought you were doing mini-IVF, in the over 40 thread you had said a long while ago that you were considering a clinic in Colorado and one in St. Louis and I thought for some reason it was because they're known for mini-IVF. Never mind, and sorry for being confused! I have read however, that for us older women, sometimes the lower stimulation can mean better egg quality and they're really only going with a small number of good quality eggs with mini-IVF - like maybe aiming for 4 versus regular IVF where there's many more meds but maybe not as good of egg quality. Realize that I say all this but I myself have only done 5 cycles of regular IVF, I'm just basing this on what I've been reading online as I try to prepare myself for a plan B in case this FET doesn't work out.
