Re: July 2019 IVF

  • @ACAC25 This is totally normal,  I think doing something to relax or feel peaceful would be helpful while you wait.  Can you schedule an acupuncture appt or Reiki appt?  It would be great to have relaxation and they can work on your anxiety and negative feelings that you are experiencing.  Have you thought of putting sticky notes on your mirror with affirmations.... like " My baby is growing and healthy".  Wishing you get amazing news on Saturday!

    Thank you ladies. DH and I caved. With us both feeling so much stress and anxiety about this yesterday we decided to test today. 

    So I POAS today. It started showing a second line as soon as I peed on it.

    I am 8 days past transfer. My beta is tomorrow. Cautiously happy right now. 

    First step in a line of steps.

    Beta today

    My beta came back at 464! My doctor is really happy. I am meeting him again on Thursday to go over meds. I asked for a second beta to make sure the numbers are doubling, he said I dont really need it because the number is high but I think I might anyways. We leave for vacation to go home and visit family Friday so just to put my mind at ease. He is also really curious as to how many babies there are because my number is high. 

    My 1st US will be 10th August. Dont know how I am going to survive 3 weeks but going home to visit family will definitely help. 

  • @ACAC25

    So exciting!! Congratulations 🍾 take it easy and enjoy your vacation!

    Hi everyone, 

    I have been lurking here for a while now. I didn't really know where I belonged but I feel comfortable posting here now. Both me and DH are 31 and trying for our first (been 2 years). Recently found out that I have a left blocked tube and hydrosapinx which according to my RE doesn't seem permanent as it comes and goes on the scans, possibly due to endometriosis. Started IVF with gonal F and had my day 5 scan and tests today. I initially was told by the ultrasound tech that I had 3 measurable follicles largest is 13.9 and I was freaking out as I thought 3 were too little. Calmed down after my nurse called and she clarified that those are the measurable ones and apparently there are lots of other follicles coming along. Hoping for the best.

    Hi Everyone. , 
    @nasah15 welcome to the group. I'm glad the nurse was able to make you feel better. Keep us posted on how everything is going and ask any questions you have. 
    @nancinator ; when is your FET? I remember you saying it would be at the end of July. Hoping it is soon for you!

    I had my second beta today. 1st Saturday, 2nd today (5 days later). P

    My second beta is 2470!  It is doubling appropriately. My doctor said they would have been happy with a number even as low as 700 right now. So I'm really happy. 
    My first US is scheduled for August 6th at 6 weeks 3 days. Hoping to see how many embryos and to check viability. 
    I am having several symptoms, seriously tired, hunger, my boobs are really sore and I'm peeing more than usual.

    @jamieswan88 Thank you so much for recommending the book It Starts With The Egg. I bought it after reading your post and have been reading ever since. 2 days ago I bought all the recommended supplements and put the on my night stand so I can take them first thing (except the melatonin). The research results were very helpful to read too.

  • @ladyp0tter Thanks so much for the welcome. You are the first person I have seen in my age bracket here too (which has made it hard to evaluate the different fertility protocols).

  • @nancinator I think my RE only does mini-IVF's for women my age - traditional IVF's are not their specialty.

    Unfortunately they retrieved 2 eggs: 1 did not fertilize and the other fertilized but did not make it to Day 7. Disappointing.
