Infertility

Cycle Canceled - from Baster to Bunny

Ugh! Went to my third and final appointment on Friday. That was supposed to be my last day of stims, trigger that night, and retrieval Sunday morning. My largest follicle was only 14mm with all the other trailing. My estradiol had shot way up, which was good in their opinion. They said they wanted me to stim one more day and come back Saturday morning to check again. When I went in Saturday the follicles had made a little progress, but my estradiol had dropped big time. Sad

The RE said they're sorry they undershot my meds, and we'd have to cancel. I was a total wreck yesterday when it really hit me. Just another bump in the long IF road! I'm hoping to be a December snowbunny. I have to call them when CD1 comes along, and hopefully with their office holiday shut down the dates all work out.

Does anyone have the link for the snowbunny for my siggy?

TTC since 2/11 - Unexplained IF B/W revealed high prolactin levels. Taking bromocriptine for prolactin.
IUI #1-3 = BFN
IVF November = Cancelled (undermedicated = small follicles)
IVF December = ER 12/6 - 6R/4M/Only 1F
Transfered our one and only blast (3AA) on 12/11

Re: Cycle Canceled - from Baster to Bunny

  • I am so sorry. I know each delay and bump in the road truly sucks. I'm sorry you have to wait, but hoping that your AF comes quickly so you're not stuck going out of your mind waiting.

  • I'm sorry. That's so frustrating. Crossing my fingers for you in December.

  • Thanks, everyone. I'm feeling better this afternoon. I was still a bit of a mess this morning.

    My RE actually just left me a message saying that she called the specialty pharmacy and put in my new order of meds and to have them delivered no later than Nov 21 (just in case). That makes me hopeful! She said I should be getting AF in 10 - 12 days. That seems so soon, but hopefully she's right. The waiting is the worst part, am I right? sheesh.

    So sorry! I feel your pain as I got cancelled this month as well. Hoping AF comes ASAP for us both because I know I am panicking about the December holiday closures! Just want to start the next round already and not have to wait until January!! I will be joining you as a snow bunny! Hoping December is our lucky month:) 

    I am freaking out about the holiday too!! I keep trying to give me uterine a pep talk "come on and shed!!" in hopes that I make it in time to do retrieval and ET before my RE's office closes.

    i hear ya! Maybe you can pep talk mine too because I am even further behind! I am only on CD 8. I tend to have shorter cycles when I'm off meds though so I am really hoping for an extra short one this time around!! Fingers crossed that we both get this one in!
