I actually just went through an ICSI procedure, and am going in tomorrow for my blood test to tell if it were successful... I just noticed this post was from late last year, and wanted to see what your status was as of now.

Best wishes

Much Hope, Love, & Support

In 10 days I will start my first meds. Just a little bit about my story! This will be my first IVF cycle after only trying to conceive without assistance for 8 months. Since I'm 33, my doctor didn't want us trying for longer than 6 months. Within these 8 months my mother dies of lung cancer so we thought it was just the stress of dealing with her death. Finally I had a HSG to get my tubes tested and low and behold, both of my tubes were completely blocked. I was in the hospital 5 days with a serious infection from the HSG test. After getting through that fiasco we sat down with a fertility specialist to discuss our options....which is this case was only IVF. On the same day, he did a quick ultrasound and spotted a fibroid tumor pressing up against my uterus. So one month after being in the hospital I was back for a myomectomy to get 5 fibroids removed. Now I've had 6 months of recovery and doc says everything looks great and we met the nurse last week for the teaching visit. My husband had to get do the semen analysis and acted like it was going to kill him. Men are such babies. :-) I told him, try lying spread eagle on a table with large devices being inserted. (Okay that was totally just venting...haha). Back to the story. So in 10 days I have my next appointment and will start my meds the very next day. I'm taking certain precautions to keep stress down. I had a one-on-one with my supervisor to discuss what I expect from him. Ironically and unfortunately, his wife went through IVF unsuccessfully so he understands much of what I am about to experience. I told him it would probably be best if he didn't come into my office during the entire month of June unless he came with chocolate. (We both laughed). My husband and I are attending a patient seminar on success strategies for overcoming the emotional challenges associated with infertility in a few weeks. My husband is pretty good about keeping me protected from outside stresses and has no problem taking care of the household responsibilties. He proved that during both of my hospital stays. The only thing left is dealing with my internal stresses, worries and fears. Any other suggestions?

Well I said all that to say Hi, nice to meet you all!
