    Hello friends:

    Please use this thread to tell everyone your status, i.e. where you are in your cycle, what meds you've taken, things that make this cycle different, and what procedures you're undergoing. It's a nice reference for everyone!

    Good luck and baby dust to all!

    I just got my plan: Femara, Menopur, and an HCG trigger. I do not look forward to a shot every night.

    So how did your IUI go? Did you have any cramping? I didn't this last time or I should say minimal cramping. I am on CD 28 and AF is suppose to show any day. I took a pg test--BFN, but I think I might try another one, the other one was pretty cheap.

    Well good luck and keep us posted.
    Me 36, DH 37, 3 rounds clomid (9/11, 10/11, 11/11), First round IUI 12/14/11--BFN, Second round IUI 1/10/12, 3rd round IUI 2/9, will know by 2/23

    Hi Everyone. I'm in 2nd month of waiting for cysts to go away so we can go forward with 2nd IUI. I'st month I had six 30mm cysts, 3 on each side. Now just one on the right side. Doc did ultrasound last week and estradiol test. Good news is the cyst isn't producing estrogen so he says we can go forward next time, even if it's still there. This IUI will be our last try before moving to IVF- and we'll be taking a year break to save up in between. Fingers crossed for IUI success ment month!

    Went in for an IVF consult yesterday and my 30-45 min appointment turned into a 3 hour session with meetings, procedures, tests, etc. the good news is we are moving forward with IVF with as estimated ER of 3/31. The bad news is my ovaries are basically that of a 40 year old, my myoma grew until it touches the uterine lining, and waiting is a very bad thing at this point. My uterus looked great though otherwise. So with what he expects, he gives us a 50% chance. If I respond really well with lots of great eggs, he bumps it up to a 70-80% chance. So while I'm 30, my protocol (including number transferred), is that of a 40 year old. Still reeling a little. Good luck to all of you.

    Can't wait to hear your amazing beta numbers that you will get on Monday. You have worked so hard for this.

    Thanks for the positive. We are trying to stay that way. I'm just happy we didn't wait anymore. It was time to move forward and this should be it. Just nervous with the increased risk of multiples with increased embryos transferred.

    Thanks so much Kris. I took s HPT this morning and I got a BFN. I of course am hoping that Mondays blood test will be positive but I'm happy I saw a negative now so if the nurse calls me on Monday with bad news, I won't breakdown at work as I won't be caught totally off guard. This was a crazy 5-6 weeks but I did learn that I'm tough and that I'm determined and that those are 2 great characteristics of a good Mom and no matter what the outcome I'm going to move forward one day closer to holding my baby. I know you feel the same way. It takes a special person to battle infertity. We'll all get to the end of it one way or another.
