Oh I remember the good 'ol Lupron! Weird emotions, so exciting going through the process because there is hope but then again you are scared to death. Why can't it be easy?! I will say that having my two distractions at home going through this time has made it much more easier.
That is very funny. I understand with what you are thinking here. I would tell the embryologist to freeze anything that makes it to day 5. If they don't arrest, keep em! You are going to have an amazing cycle and you better count on twins at this rate!!!!

Now am 4 days away from my first betas
I have no symptoms other than mild cramps and mild nausea
I am trying to stay positive
But i am really on panic
Do you think it can work from first time??
Do i have to feel symptoms?
Does AF normally appears before betas or after that?? Please reply me dear sisters
Hang in there! :hugs:Symptoms are different for everyone. Some feel nausea, cramping, some feel nothing. Some do an early HPT and get a faint line, some don't and still are pg. it's maddening. AF sometimes comes before your beta, but sometimes after. You're on a lot of progesterone, so sometimes you have to stop that to get AF. I wish I could give you a straight answer, but there just isn't one. You're almost there. Good luck & sending you lots of:babydust::stickyvibes:

HighHopesMama have you had ivf before? Did it work?? Or do you know anyone who has had it and succeeded??
Thanks in advance dear
I hope you have some good news, too. Yes, I've done IVF twice before. Once it ended in a chemical pregnancy and the other resulted in our son, who is 17 months. I'm currently stimming for an IVF. Good luck!!
I see this thread hasn't had a post for a couple years but I thought I would post something up in case anyone else is trolling around going through the same thing. We have finally decided to try IVF after 4 failed IUI's and almost 7 years of not even one BFP.
Congratulations! Keep us posted on how everything goes.
Good lucky Tiffany! Do you know what place you will use? My sister just is starting the IUI process and is staying with Aurora and Hayes. She did call one that you had used but she didn't do IUI with donors. My sister is in the southeast part of the state so decided driving to west allis was better than menomee falls.
We are going back to Froedtert and Strawn in Menomonee Falls since they know my history now and wouldn't have to start all over. We're in Brookfield so the drive would be about equal either way. My OB recommended both. I have my 1st consult on Aug 8th for the IVF.
We're also going to start looking into adoption, too.
I used to work at Froedtert. :)
We are using LSS for our adoption and I will say that they have had a slowdown in placements since we started in 2011. I will be at 3 years waiting very soon and know a number of families waiting more than two years. I think that the placements are just lower combined with things like less families going into international....a lot of popular countries have closed to US adoptions and so those families start looking at domestic infant. I believe that LSS is accepting less families per year to compensate for the lower placements. I'm on the northwest side of the state now so LSS or Catholic Charities were the biggest options or looking at agencies in MN. But I think that there are a few others in your area.
My social worker suggested a different photo, we had a studio one up this past year but she said that they aren't as pulled to those. So I'm currently changing that out, updating the letter and hoping that sometime during year three of waiting that we get the match call.
Very exciting! We also had 4 failed IUIs before we moved to IVF, and now we have a 7 month old! We live in California but cycled at Barbados Fertility Centre (yes, in the Caribbean!) and absolutely loved it! Tons and tons of :babydust: for you!
I'm very nervous about it as I know it can be an invasive procedure but feel like we need to try at least once otherwise I'll always be wondering "maybe?" How many IVF treatments did you have?
I know it could take awhile for adoption so that's why we wanted to get that process going, too. I actually wanted to start with that sooner but it got pushed off after fully believing the IUI's would work :ohno: We know people who have used Lutheran Social Services, A Angel Adoptions, and Pauquette Adoption Services. DH is Puerto Rican and I'm Caucasian so ethnicity isn't an imperative thing for us.
We did the one IVF cycle, for the same reason, that we just had to try otherwise we would always wonder 'what if?'. Not sure if we'll do another, I turn 35 next year, and we've always wanted to adopt too. It is invasive, with all of the injections, monitoring, retrieval, and transfer, but you will be well taken care of. I tried to keep each day in perspective, because it can be very stressful. Each day will start, you will have lots of injections, but at the end of the day you have done what you can to meet your special LO. And then start again the next day. After you know it, the cycle will be done and you will be looking at a beautiful BFP!
