Infertility Veterans

Roll Call - Everyone (IFV, PAIF, SAIF) please come in!

Hello lovely ladies,

I know this time of the year is extra hard on us so I am starting this off by sending EVERYONE hugs and love and most of all prayers. If I had my wish - we would all have our take home babies.

Please check in here and let us know how you are doing or what is up. Even if you don't have anything new to report - just come on in for a super big hug and a prayer for a great 2013. A lot of women here have been on my mind constantly and I wish I could make it all better. I won't call out anyone in particular because I want you all to post what you feel you can but I want you all to know that I am thinking about you.

Rachel

  • I love hugs... here is one back at you and everyone who needs one.  I am so looking forward to 2013.  I usually don't like odd numbered years.... but 2010 ended with a miscarriage and mid 2012 had another miscarriage... with a BFN in between, then a terrible 4th ivf cycle... so I'm thinking 2013 has got to be the year for us...  McIrish...  praying this is it for you!

    Wishing all of you who celebrate Christmas a very Merry and for those who don't, Happy Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year for all of us!

  • We found out that our donor has been having issues with her menstrual cycle.  She apparently went to her own physician who ran blood work which uncovered ?hormonal issues?.  She has an appointment with our RE tomorrow so hopefully we will get the full story but things are not looking good at this point.  I am hoping it is just a cyst from her last cycle but to be honest I am thinking that she will be out for a while.  We are/were really attached to this donor and both DH and I are feeling so beaten.  We actually found her last May before we decided to cycle again with my OE, so she has been ?it? in our minds for a long time.     


    I hope that in 2013 we will all be lucky enough to get out of this nasty IF purgatory!  Hugs to everyone!!!

  • BIg hugs to you Rachel, and everyone else. I haven't been on the board much lately. We had our FET last Friday and beta is on 12/23 (although I will probably test before then). This is our last shot and honestly I'm just ready for it to be over one way or another. I have already made the mental shift to adoption so in some ways I am prepared with a plan in place. Of course, I don't really want to go through a long and possibly heartbreaking adoption process either, and I can't say for sure how I'll feel about a BFN or another loss. But I'm ready to get my body and my life back in 2013. 13 is DH's lucky number so maybe that means something?

    ((HUGS)) to everyone this time of year especially. 

    Dx: High FSH, stage IV endo, homozygous C677T MTHFR and PAI-1
    Early loss 10/08
    Lap 1/09
    IVF #1 "natural IVF" - 1 egg retrieved, missed m/c
    Tried several mini-stim cycles with no response
    Switched clinics - dx'd as carrier for Fragile X
    IVF #2 MDL protocol Jan/Feb converted to IUI, BFN
    IVF #2 take 2: Antagonist, one embie, BFN
    IVF #3: Antagonist, no fertilization
    One last ditch effort at OE IVF (antagonist with Clomid) cancelled
    DE cycle #1 Jan/Feb 2011, BFP, ectopic
    DE cycle #2 June/July 2011 - BFP
    10/28/11 Baby girl lost at 17 weeks due to pre-term labor. We love and miss you.
    DE cycle #3 June/July 2012 - BFP, twins, both heartbeats stopped, D&C
    2 frosties but don't know what's next
    FET Dec 2012: BFP! Praying this one sticks for the long haul!

    Hello lovely ladies,

    I know this time of the year is extra hard on us so I am starting this off by sending EVERYONE hugs and love and most of all prayers. If I had my wish - we would all have our take home babies.

    Please check in here and let us know how you are doing or what is up. Even if you don't have anything new to report - just come on in for a super big hug and a prayer for a great 2013. A lot of women here have been on my mind constantly and I wish I could make it all better. I won't call out anyone in particular because I want you all to post what you feel you can but I want you all to know that I am thinking about you.

    Rachel

    Huge hugs to you too!!! ... And thank you for posting a roll call to pull me out of my shell ;)

  • ((hugs))

    This is year is MUCH better than last (where SIL was PG w/twins and we had to cater her every need). I digress. It is nice not see a PG family member this year.

    My MIL is still as annoying as ever and keeps saying, "oh I just want more grandchildren" blah blah blah

     

    I will be drinking my way through the holidays again. Cheers! Drinks

  • Great big ((HUGS)) to everyone on here too.  I went through 3 years of unexplained IF and got pg by IUI.  My DD just turned 1 last month and now we're trying to figure out if/when we want more kids  She was born with a birth defect, so I want to get tested to see if it's genetic and then we'll see where we go from here.  For now, I'm just enjoying watching her meet all her milestones in her own way.

  • Hello everyone.  I've been really quiet. I switched RE's, although I knew I was PCOS, I am insulin resistant and I produce a high amount of Prolactin.  I am now on Metformin and bromocriptine.  

     Hopefully will start BCP's for IVF #3 in January. We are changing protocols and am going to be on an antagonist protocol.

     Good luck to everyone in 2013.

    Hello lovely ladies,

    I know this time of the year is extra hard on us so I am starting this off by sending EVERYONE hugs and love and most of all prayers. If I had my wish - we would all have our take home babies.

    Please check in here and let us know how you are doing or what is up. Even if you don't have anything new to report - just come on in for a super big hug and a prayer for a great 2013. A lot of women here have been on my mind constantly and I wish I could make it all better. I won't call out anyone in particular because I want you all to post what you feel you can but I want you all to know that I am thinking about you.

    Rachel

    Huge hugs to you too!!! ... And thank you for posting a roll call to pull me out of my shell ;) 

    Oh sweetie - I always look for an update from you and I am always thinking about you!

    A giant hug right back at you. My new donor got her AF and I start lupron on 1/2. I am sooo NOT excited. It has been a bad 2012 for me and not just on the IF front. Just ready for this year to end! 

    I think IF just numbs us to everything. My Fx for the upcoming cycle for you!

    BIg hugs to you Rachel, and everyone else. I haven't been on the board much lately. We had our FET last Friday and beta is on 12/23 (although I will probably test before then). This is our last shot and honestly I'm just ready for it to be over one way or another. I have already made the mental shift to adoption so in some ways I am prepared with a plan in place. Of course, I don't really want to go through a long and possibly heartbreaking adoption process either, and I can't say for sure how I'll feel about a BFN or another loss. But I'm ready to get my body and my life back in 2013. 13 is DH's lucky number so maybe that means something?

    ((HUGS)) to everyone this time of year especially. 

    My Fx for a great first beta for you!

  • So good to see updates from everyone. We are doing well. S is 7 weeks old already and I absolutely love being home with her. Headed back to work on Jan 6 and we just hired a nanny yesterday. She'll be coming part time the next couple weeks so I can walk her through stuff, and so I can see her around the baby, which will hopefully make me feel better leaving her here.

  • Coming out of the woodwork to say hi and send a big hug to all of you ladies!!!!

    Like some kind of amnesia patient I've been getting weird little memories of this time last year... realized I was cycling for IVF2, and was the first xfer of 2012 at my clinic.  I sure thought this holiday would be very different than it is!   But I also looked over at my cozy house and wonderful pets and felt very blessed and even a hint of contentment. 

    I am so rarely on here anymore but you ladies are all in my heart, and I think of you so often!  Here's to an amazing 2013 to you all!!
