I'm new to this board. I was an APA member when I had my son (5 yo). I'm in the middle of an IVF cycle and finding that I need someone to talk to about the experience. Perhaps this is the place.
I am Maria, mom to G (5) and Stepmom to J(16) and H(13). DH and I have been TTC for 2 years, and this is our first try with IVF. I had my retrieval on 12/14. I had 17 eggs, 14 mature, 9 embryos as of today. We will do a 5 day transfer on Saturday. Our HCG test will be on 12/28 (12 days!!).
I'm on progesterone shots (IM, 50 mg).
I'm emotional, feel like crying (constantly), and completely fixated on the process. I suppose all of that is probably normal.
