Day 7 of stims--3rd IVF cycle

Jul 12, 2012 - 1 comments

I am on day 7 of stims!  This is my 3rd IVF cycle so I am trying to stay positive. I really hope it works this time. I see my RE on Friday for u/s and blood work.  I hope everything is growing well.  I am on Lupron and Menopur which is different from the last 2 cycles.  I feel extra bloated and lots of cramping on my right and left ovaries.  i hope this is a good sign.  My ER should be sometime next week, which I can't stop thinking about!  Very nerve wracking!!  

Acupuncture

May 29, 2012 - 2 comments

After 2 failed IVF cycles, we decided to taka a break and begin acupuncture.  I have been going to get acupuncture once a week since Janaury! That's 4 months!!  We plan to continue for 1 more month and then begin our 3rd IVF cycle.  The acupunture in conjuction with the herbal meds and herbal shake have really helped with my severe endo pain and to stop bleeding in between periods.  I have noticed that when I am not on birth control pills, I don't spot in between periods so I have decided to stay off the pill.  I was on the pill for pain management and lighter periods but acupuncture has helped with this.  We plan on trying a 3rd IVF cycle in July and hope for our BFP!!
