IVF with PGD round 2

So this happened tonight…

first day r2

This is the start of IVF with PGD round 2.

The next cycle timeline looks like this:

June 23rd- July 7th (about 14 days) Aygestin pill which I will take for two days and then start my Lupron shots.

July 7th- July 15th- ish- Stim injections and Lupron for 10-12 days

July 16th (give or take a couple of days)- HCG trigger shot

35 hours later- Egg Retrieval

July 23rd (ish) 5 day biopsy

July 29th-30th (ish)POSITIVE …Results of biopsy

We are trying to think positively and feel good about this next cycle. I am a little nervous about taking medication for two extra weeks this cycle and I’ve heard from the nurses and my fellow ttcsisters (try to conceive sisters) that Lupron causes migraines. I love a good headache so I’m really looking forward to those if they decide to show up.

In other news, I’ve given up coffee completely for this cycle and those of you who know my Starbucks obsession know I must mean business this cycle. This was tonight’s dessert.

green smoothy

Green Apple/Spinach Smoothy:

  • 1 cup spinach (2 giant handfuls works)
  • 6 frozen coconut water ice cubes
  • 1 granny smith apple (chopped)
  • hand full of mint
  • handful of Flax Seeds

Blend together, add more coconut water if it’s too thick and add to cup.

  1. I just had a failed IVF cycle with nothing to transfer because nothing fertilized. I admire your strength for starting your 2nd cycle. I’m hoping to do the same soon… Hang in there!

      1. Thank you!! I’m actually taking a break. Going to focus on supplements and getting healthy, with the hopes it impacts egg quality. Trying to remain positive…
