Hi. Im very new to the board (about 15 minutes in fact!). Have been reading for some time now - and it has been a relief to know that Im not alone.

I will be having my first try of IVF in about a month and would love to hear from anyone in the same position.

My history is, 2 m/cs, one ectopic last year after which I had my tube removed (apparently the one left isn't much good either). Was trying clomid for about 6 months. Got pregnanant on the 2nd month but had another m/c. All my hopes are now on IVF.

Would love to hear from anyone!! :) :)

^hello^ Sandy

welcome to FF. This site is fantastic and I couldn't cope without it.
Also pretty new myself.
Check out the cycle buddies thread where you can catch up with others going through the tx at the same time as you.
^goodluck^ with your tx

Good afternoon
I am starting my d/r injections on Friday. I am very excited, but at the same time nervous as i am scared of needles. But i am sure i will get over them very quickly. I have been pregnant 4 times and two of those were ectopic pregnancies and the other 2 were m/c. So now i am also relying on IVF. I am just praying every single day that this will work. I am having my treatment at The Nuffield Hospital in Woking. Where are you having yours? I will keep you updated on how i get along. Good luck with your treatment. Keep in touch. ^jumpin^

Thanks so much for the replies - its really nice to hear from you all.

I have been having treatment in Portsmouth so far and will be having my injections and scans there - but will be having the egg collection and transfer at the London Fertility Centre.

By the way, I've been trying to get pregnant for about 4 years in all now. I know what you mean Mickie about praying everyday - Im completely desperate to get pregnant!

Let me know both of you how you get on.

Good luck with the treatment. Will let you know when I have any news.

Hi

Have also convinced myself that I will fall first time, even though people/doctors say to me it doesn't always work first time and you have to be prepared for that but, going through all the treatment and stress its hard to accept that its failed, you ask WHY?

Have also been trying for 4 years and never really thought much of it the first year, all those years of trying not to fall PG and now i want to, it isn't happening. :mad:

^goodluck^ Good luck everyone with your treatment. x

Ive been trying to get my doctor to agree to me starting IVF for ages (well, it feels like it!)  I just wish I could hurry things up.

I guess in the meantime its fingers crossed for all of us.

Anyway, Im glad I found this site - its so good to speak to other people who know what your talking about and how you feel.  All my friends except one have babies now so Ive been feeling pretty depressed for a while. 

None of them or my family understand what Im feeling. My sister even said its no big deal (I'm currently looking into ways of divorcing siblings!!)

It is hard for family/friends to fully understand as they have never been through it or until now, yourself, never even discussed or talked about it. Forever finding myself reapting over again as they are 'so what did you say, how long and what you having done, is it this/that'.

So its nice for me too to have found this site as i find it so easy to talk to all of you x ^fairydust^ xx

hey Sandy and everyone else  :)

I'm new today also and should be starting IVF in a month as well (early May I hope). I'm nervous about it but excited to be moving forward after failed months on clomid and IUI. I'v got high FSH (13.9) and hoping that IVF will at the very least show how my egg quality is. I'm desperate to get pregnant as well after 2 + years of trying

Hi Ceepee, nice to hear from you.

Sounds like we'll be having IVF at the same time. :)

I was on clomid for a while too without much success.  Have you been pregnant before?

no, which worries me  :-\ I never tried before tho but I think anything in the past would have been stopped by my high FSH. I'v been put on the pill for this month, is that usual? then start sprays/injections in about 20 days time or so

I read that it is common to be put on the pill for a month before starting IVF. Apparently it (somehow) makes the eggs better quality and stronger. 

I have an appointment to see my dr on friday to find out exactly when ill start my injections etc.  I hope its soon!!  ^reiki^

Hi Girls

I am in the same boat as well, due to start my IVF.  I have all the test done and I am due to call the unit at Guys on the first day of my next period.  I could have this month but I have been on 6 months clomid and lots of test at Guys and I wanted to give my body one month off before we start with the IVF. 
Not looking forward to the injections and DH has said he is happy to help out.

Wishing you all lots of luck with your treatment   ^fairydust^

Love Shaz xx

Hi Bolts

I can understand why your stressed!  Well, if I was you Id probably go ahead with treatment anyway and hope that a new job turned up soon. But thats cos im so impatient to have the treatment!

I hope you get some good news soon.  ^reiki^ ^reiki^
