CharaW and JJ1204-  This is my fist IVF too, so many questions lol! This Forum has been a great help for sure! I tried acupuncture a little while ago and really enjoyed it, I was really relaxed after! 

 

We have our injection training Feb 15th and i start injections the 22nd! It is moving really fast, i cant believe it! 

We have to fly to Ottawa for IVF, as our clinic in Newfoundland doesn't offer it! I have to take a couple of weeks off work to travel. I was actually going to ask you girls the same question. I think i am going to see how i feel after the actual transfer, i might take an extra week off! How about you ladies?

 

Its nice to have cycle buddies! :)

Oh ok! I get it lol! That's good you have family there! We can't go anywhere else because we have frozen sperm and they won't transfer it anymore? Liability hazard.. we are going to stay in the city the nights before our appointments because they are at 730 AM and we live an hour and a half away and there is always horrible traffic !!

well......

 

Ouch is all I have to say . The mock transfer wasn't that bad at all but they couldn't find my left ovary again so they really had to dig !!!!! My stomach/ovaries are very tender to touch. They also figured out that I might have a heart shaped uterus that could lead to preterm delivers. They booked me for a 3D ultrasound on the 24 of Feb so we will see.

 

Hope you ladies are doing great :)
