Re: Who here has gone through IVF? May I pick your brains?

We didn't have enough eggs the first time to make it to retrieval so we converted to iui so I have no procedure help but...

Lupron will make you a crazy menopausal lady
The stim meds make you fat and cranky and any weight you gain is HARD to lose
I have abnormal body hair growth now that I didn't have before. It all seems thicker and denser
Be prepared to be cancelled due to poor or over response
Menopur hurts to inject!
Get some exercise such as walking swimming. Nothing crazy but something that will help settle the nervous energy you will have
Remember that nervous energy is fleeting. Don't expect to get
Much done
Sinks tons of Gatorade after the procedure and rest
Monitor your weight post procedure for ohss
Ohss is miserable and can happen even with a poor response.
I tested my trigger shot out. Well with both cases the test never went "neg". It always had this sorta faint shadowy line that one day (about 9dpo) suddenly got darker. I had one shot
