Hi Ladies!  Sorry I'm running a bit behind - I got caught up working in the yard tonight. 

Congrats to all the BFPs and ((hugs)) to those that need them!

 

Reply to this post if you would like your information updated. And let me know if I missed any BFPs. Please post an update at least monthly so I know you are still active. You will be removed if you go more than 4 weeks without posting. I know we have a lot of edits to make here, so please respond this week!

If you would like to be added or updated, please answer the questions below:
1. What is your name (if you want to share)?
2. When did you start TTC (month/year)?
3. What is your diagnosis, if you have one?

For everyone who is up to date on the above, where are you in your current cycle and how's it going?

Re: ~*~3T Weekly Check In~*~

  • Going in for a P4 draw on Tuesday, as I *think* I ovulated last Tues. I wasn't sleeping well last week, so my temps are a bit unreliable. We're going to keep trying on our own as long as I'm ovulating (until we hit August, if no BFP by then).

    QOTW: I love working in the garden and flowerbeds. Today I planted a new flowerbed around the mailbox and dug out the vegetable garden plot with the help of BIL #1. Tomorrow we'll plant it!  I have always worked in the dirt alongside my mom, so having my own flowerbeds makes me feel closer to her (even though we live 100 miles apart). DH started the garden the year before I moved in with him, and this will be our second garden together (we didn't do one the year we got married). Hate the mosquitoes, but love the green!

  • We are officially starting Clomid + trigger + IUI #4.  I start Clomid Tuesday and go in Wednesday June 5th for monitoring u/s, and hopefully will trigger that evening for IUI on Friday June 7th.

    QOTW:  My family plays a lot of outdoor games like washers, corn toss, and hillbilly golf.  Right now washers is my favorite.  A coworker and I cleaned up at washers at our company picnic last week.

    I'm on cd9 of IUI#5, with tonight being day six of injects (75iu of follistim just like the last two inject cycles).  Only this time I did not have cd9 monitoring, I *think* they wanted to push all non-IVF ER, ET, or IUI needed off the weekend.  This is the first time on a holiday weekend I have missed monitoring (I had an IUI on Easter last year, and monitoring last cycle on MLK day) so it seems odd that they'd avoid it.  :::shrugs:::

    On my monitoring on Friday (cd7), I already had two 11mm on my left so I guess that's why I'm a little worried.  Last cycle I had 11 and 12's at cd9.  But already having it at cd7?!   ::::deep breath::: I have had joint pain in my shoulder which I've never had as a side effect before, aside from that doing fine.  Really tired, took two naps today and yesterday but that's fairly typical for me on injects.

    QOTW:  I personally just like hanging out in someone's back yard drinking.  Be it from a BBQ, Family holiday GTG, hot tubbing with my SIL, Them hosting their neighbor's Rib-O-rama contest, whatever!  If I'm hanging in the back yard with folks I enjoy and a drink in my hand, what's not to like?

    I had my first monitoring appointment this morning, looks like I'll have 3 follies for IUI 1. The bad news is that my lining is thin, which sucks. If this doesn't work we'll probably do a natural cycle to let the clomid clear my system before we try something else, maybe injects because apparently my RE doesn't prescribe femara. Fingers crossed this cycle works! I may be ready to trigger tomorrow.

    My favorite summer activity is going to beach or floating around in a pool to soak up the sun.

    We are 4 dpIUI and my hopes are high. Maybe foolishly so, but I don't care, I'm enjoying these feelings of hope :) This is my first cycle with meds, and oh boy, I was not expecting that O cramps and pains could get any worse. I can't believe that I'm still feeling some occasional mild cramping this far after O. And I'm still feeling bloated as hell. But the doctor assured me that it is a good sign that I am responding well to the meds, so what other choice is there? Suck it up, right? :)

    Quick question for anyone who has tested out their trigger: when did you start testing? Tomorrow will be a week from when I triggered, so I'm thinking I should start tomorrow. Does that sound good?

    QOTW: Grilling out by the pool with some suds in my hand. So relaxing!

  • 1. What is your name if you want to share? Jessie

    2. When did you start TTC month/year?
    I went off BC in June of 2008. We tried for 1 year, started testing and were overwhelmed so we backed off. I never went back on BC but we didn't do anything special. We got serious again in late 2011. Started redoing all testing late last year and this year.
    3. What is your diagnosis, if you have one? MFI. Still waiting for a ton of BW to come back. My CD3 BW and US were excellent. I also need to schedule my HSG.

    4. What treatments are you doing?
    DH is taking Fertilaid supplements. We started working with an RE last month. I am thinking the plan will be unmedicated IUI.

    QOTW:What is your favorite summertime outdoor activity and why?
    Drinking on the back deck, grilling out and gardening! I love drinking, love food off the grill and love playing in the dirt!
  • I'm at the very end of the 2WW... Will probably test tomorrow or Tuesday. Not feeling too hopeful at this point. :(

    QOTW: I love to go for my daily walk. I just like the exercise and it's a great stress reliever.

    Well we just started our next round for IUI 2. This time our RE scheduled us to come in earlier since we missed one of the follies last time. Hopefully we'll have more than 1 follie again.

  • We are still on a treatment break. We decided to start Femara in August. I just started school again last week so I am super busy with that and it just seems right to wait a couple more months.

    QOTW: I'm a wedding photographer, so obviously I love weddings during the summer! But when I'm not doing my "job" I like camping with the hubs. The place we go is beautiful! Its so quiet and peaceful. We can kind of forget about ttc and all of the other crappy stuff going on in the real world while we are gone for a few days.

  • IUI #3 was a bust.  So now its on to IUI #4 with injects.  I'm nervous about doing an injects cycle.  I had minimal side effects on Clomid and don't know what to expect. I'll be taking Gonal F.  I hope this change is what we need.  AF came yesterday so my CD 3 app will be on Tuesday.  Hope you all are doing well and enjoying the long weekend.

     In the summer I love to go to the beach.  I was actually just there tonight. I love it bc its so relaxing.   

    ***SIGGY WARNING***

    DX: Unexplained
    6 Failed IUIs (Clomid and Gonal F).  
    IVF #1 began August 2013- BC, 4 days of Estrace, stimmed with Gonal F and Menopur, Ganirelix, 9R 5M 5F, Medrol and Doxycycline, 5 day transfer of 2 early blastocysts- good quality, Progesterone, Estrace, and baby aspirin, BETA on 9/20 BFN,   IVF #2 began September 2013, stimming with Gonal F (higher dose) and Menopur, Ganirelix, 18R 14M 9F with ICSI, 5 day transfer of 2 BBs one was starting to hatch, 2 frosties: 1  BB and 1 AC, BETA on 10/21, BFN BETA was a 5- chemical 
    Getting some more testing and trying to figure out what the issue is before FET in December, started acupuncture on 11/10, RLP and some other BW nothing major to report except slightly high Prolactin. Prolactin was slightly high when I started with my RE and I already had an MRI which was Neg.  Endo biopsy=negative.  WTF is wrong with us???
    12/18/13 FET of 1 BB and 1 AC.  Hoping for a miracle.  Beta 12/26 Low BETA-8 2nd BETA 5- chemical
    After 3 failed transfers IDK where to go from here.  Still no real answers as to why this isn't working.  Getting a second opinion in February and looking into immune testing.  
    2/14- NEW RE- Immune testing showed a partial dq alpha match with DH- On prednisone and did intralipids prior to transfer.  3/14 Lupron, gonal f, menopur, HGH.  ER 15 mature all 15 fertilized!  5dt of an early blast grade 1 and an expanded blast grade 2.  BETA on 4/21.  1 grade 2 embryo frozen

    All Welcome
  • The m/c I thought I had last week turned out to be an ectopic pregnancy in my R tube.  Did methotrexate on Friday, just waiting around to see if it worked and being paranoid about my tube rupturing in the meantime.  BW on Tues & Fri.  I'm sure this is really going to delay my FET.

  • Hi Ladies!

     I am 11dpiui # 1.  I have been feeling really low this weekend, and don't think that the IUI worked.  I am usually a "lets keep going we can do this" kinda person, but I am really over all of this right now.

    QOTW: My absolute favorite thing to do in the summer is sit out on my deck in the morning, drinking my coffee and just taking it all in.  It is a few minutes of zen for me before the day starts.  

    Edit: I miscalculated, I am 13dpIUI

  • Good Morning Ladies! I hope everyone is doing well!

    Things are well here. I am 3dp3dt of 2 wonderful looking 9 cell embies. I'm not holding a lot of stock in the grade of the embies bc we had beautiful, perfect embies last time and things didn't work out then. I know it's a different cycle, but it helps me stay grounded. They did go ahead and freeze 6 embryos on day 3, and they let the other 5 grow. FX any of them made it to blast. Hopefully I will hear about them tomorrow!

  • Mobile bumping.

    Started with new RE on 5/9/13.
    Waiting on AF for me to pretest day 3 bloodwork. Old RE only drew for FSH. Then onto a HSG mid cycle bloodwork. DH had follow up with urologist on Friday. He started on 25mg of clomid for low testosterone. Repeat blood draw in 2 months and repeat SA in 3 months.

    I hope zip am answering the right question. I live BBQ on the patio in the summer.

    I am in the 2WW of my first IUI.  Man, this cycle I am super exhausted and bloated.  I have been going to bed really early and even taking naps.  If this cycle is a bust we are going to be taking a few month break due to job changes over in the Banker house.

    QOTW: What is your favorite summertime outdoor activity and why?  I love camping and being around a campfire/fire pit.
