Trouble TTC
Options

We're on the books for IVF in September!

We had our follow-up from my husband's post-surgery SA (with still 0% morphology), and we're on my RE's schedule for IVF in September.  Due to the morphology issues, she is planning on ICSI and her standard protocol is the long-lupron.  Our official consult is Monday, when we bring back all of the paperwork, meet with the nurse for inject training, and then we order the meds.

As I'm writing this, it's surreal.  I'm really excited and starting to get a little scared too.  As it stands right now, we might end up doing egg transfer on or right around Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish new year... talk about new beginnings).

Now for the mushy part, I just want to say how much that I APPRECIATE everyone on this board.  Infertility was such a shock for us, and I can't imagine going through it without knowing there was a place I could go to talk with women going through something similar. I know I've been sort of in and out of the boards this last month, but I just have to tell you that you are all really awesome.  I know that no one wants to be here, but we make it a great place to be when you have to be.

Anyone else planning on September?

    Good luck! I know how you feel when you talk about the shock of infertility- especially with MFI. I hope that Rosh Hashanah brings you luck with your first IVF cycle!

    DH just gave his sample yesterday for his 9-month follow up from surgery. We'll find out soon what we're doing (likely IVF with ICSI) and hopefully we'll start a cycle in September as well!

    GL and FX crossed for you!

    If this IUI (#2) fails my RE wants me to move onto IVF. We just need to figure out a way to afford it. If we can swing something then we will be starting BCP's in August for a September cycle. We have our IVF consult Thursday. Eek.

    Congrats! I am also planning on September, though my protocol will be different than yours. 

    I second the appreciation for the board. I think I would be SO much more terrified without women who have/are/will be in the same sort of situations. :)

    Good luck to you!

    I think the way it is looking that my IVF will happen sometime in September too! 

    7/18/12-1st RE appointment CD2 blood work taken. Told to move straight to IVF. Starting BC pills and FSH injections plus Lupron. Hopefully doing ET in September Off BCP March 2011 Started TTC July 2011 7 months TTC with no luck an then.... Diagnosed 2/24/12 with 2 Ovarian Cysts. 3/22/12-Lap to remove cysts, look for endo, and see if tubes are clear. 3/22/12-Diagnosed with Severe Endo(tubes are clear). 4/4/12-Post op OBGYN appointment. Told chances of conceiving naturally are very low, but told conceiving in the next few months is our best chance due to being cleaned out during Lap. Referred to a RE. RE said IVF is our only chance to get pregnant. Told only a 20% chance even with two put in. 9/5-Lupron 9/20 Stims(Menopur & Follistim) 9/30 Trigger time 10/2 ER 10/3 fert report-out of 7 eggs retrieved only 2 fertilized. Hello "Thing 1 and Thing 2!" Kinda sad there is none to freeze. Because only 2 we will have 2DT to get them back into a natural envionment 10/4 ET. Found out that only 1 divided. We love you "Thing 2." Thing 1 is now snuggled inside me and we are praying it will be our take home baby! **Did not even make it to my beta, the day before on 10/16/12 I got my F'in period** Such a stab in the heart. Nov 2012-Moving onto domestic newborn adoption! Can't wait for my take home baby. We will try IVF again after 1-2 years of a clear head. Need a break from infertility treatments/issues for my mental sanity! image
