    eeekkk ladies i need some opinions. i am cd 11 and have been having daily gonal f for 8 days and syneral since cd21 last cycle — today i have started to get ewcm!!!! i thought the syneral was to stop ovulation?? wouldnt this mean stop the ewcm too?? my dr isnt available until monday which is not tomorrow but the next so i cant speak to him until then!! i am sooo worried if my eggs are big enough (they were small yesterday on scan) that my body will release them before the pick up!! my body on serophene for IUI would always O earlier than ovidrel trigger… oh man i am worried and have had a bad feeling that something is going to wreck this cycle ;((

    Andris15 – thanks for asking, my ER went much better this time than last (thank goodness). They got 14 eggs, 11 that matured and 10 that fertilized properly. I find out tomorrow (Thursday night) my PGS report and see how many are healthy and then Friday will be ET day!!! I am trying to remain positive and hopeful but also keeping in mind I have a long way to go still. BUT I am very happy the way this round is starting out!!

    feefees a mom 2 be – I would start acupuncture now. There is a lot they can do to prepare your body for a healthy transfer. My IVF doc said to do acupuncture once a week closer to my transfer date but for now every other week is fine. Acupuncture is expensive but not as much as IVF so I will do whatever I can to increase my chances. The research I have done in my area (Bay Area, CA) IVF costs from $20,000 to $26,000 total but I am just preparing for it to cost $30,000 to prepare for the worst. I am also doing PGD which costs around $5,000 so if you are not doing this procedure subtract from the total. Hope this info helps you.

    It’s good to see a few of us on the go (or soon to be) in here. I should be starting my second IVF cycle in about 10 days if AF comes on time. I do a FLARE cycle, so should have collection and transfer in about 4 weeks. We have decided to go for another collection cycle and leave the frozen ones for back up. If we can get in before the end of November (yes, it’s close) we save $2,500. ANDRIS and BLUE STAR – keep us updated or blog on your pages and we will be praying for you and your eggs/embies. Hugs

    Brie; How did your ET go? Don’t forget, you are always in my prayers. Things will go well for you this time. Cheers and a lovely 2ww ahead with an ending BFP. Please keep me posted.

    Andris15 – The transfer went great! We ended up with two excellent expanded blastocysts on day 6. I had one left over blast to freeze so now is just the waiting game. I am trying to keep my head in a level place but really hoping this worked. Your time is quickly approaching!!! Do you have everything all set up and ready to go?

    HI ladies… I am waiting for my AF to start BCP’s for IVF Cycle one. I am going to do it. If I get a BFP my hubby will know before he deploys… Wouldnt that be a good sendoff? Any pointers to a successful cycle?
