IVF cycle November, anyone else? — The Bump

IVF cycle November, anyone else?

Just found out yesterday that my clinic won't be able to do an IVF stimulation cycle with me until November. I really thought I would be able to do it sooner than that (((sigh))). So the wait goes on. At least I get to start testing and other appointments late next month. Maybe that will keep me busy enough to feel like things are happening. As of now time feels like it is going sooo slow.

Re: IVF cycle November, anyone else?

  • Ugh waiting sucks! But look at it this way - you have ample time to make any adjustments to diet etc to help along in egg and sperm development - experts do say it takes 3 months of changes to affect eggs and sperm! FX for you!

  • I agree! I will be starting my first IVF cycle in October and going into November. It feels like forever, but I'm sure once it gets here it will go quickly. At least you get to start testing and stuff. That usually keeps the time passing a bit quicker!

    I'm doing DE IVF and anticipating that it will finally happen around Nov. The summer and early fall are so packed I'm hoping it goes by quickly.

  • Wonderful! Let's stay in contact. This is a first time for me so it would be fun to go through the process with other people at the same time.

    I've made every diet and lifestyle change anyone could think of since  a year and a half ago when I first started saving for IVF. Now that I have nothing left to do or research seems like time is going soooo slow.

  • I'm hoping that we will be starting IVF by then. We just had our 3rd IUI yesterday. I'm trying to stay positive and hope that it will work. I'm also trying to mentally prepare myself for IVF. We have our IVF discussion scheduled with the RE at the end of August.
