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

  • 12DPO and not a second line in sight. I'm fully expecting AF on Tuesday. *Sigh*

    DH did not respond well to my suggestion that we put him on Fertility Blend for Men (he accused me of spending too much time here and buying into "snakeoil"), so that was a fun fight yesterday. Today I'm going to talk him into going back to the RE cycle after next to start with the injects + IUI. And (whether the RE actually requires it or not) I'm going to tell him that the RE will require another SA before we cycle.

    Next cycle I'm not even going to temp. This 2WW has been awful, and I really just need a break from all the craziness. I'm going to bust it at the gym instead, and see how many of the 25 pounds I need to lose I can get rid of.

    QOTW: My dog hates thunder, and I was late getting up anyway, so that's my excuse for not going to church today. The rain always makes me sad and thoughtful, and with the hormones that are making my boobs so sore that I feel like they're going to fall off - well, let's just say I don't need the extra moodiness. I'll probably still make my Sunday Target run. Today feels as blah as it looks outside. To end on a positive note - at least I don't have to water the garden.

Thank you to all for sharing their stories, the intimate details of their lives, their knowledge, and their hearts. I hope this experience changes me, always for the better.
  • Currently on BCP after a small cyst was found on my CD3 monitoring US.  Hopefully will be able to start follistim after 2 weeks on the BCP and then will do IUI # 2. 

    QOTW: I wish rain would cancel the baby shower I am going to, but alas it will not.   It rained here last night heavily, but currently its dry and windy.  Sometimes I love the rain and an excuse to hang inside and watch a movie :)  If I have to go out and its raining then I am sad and usually frustrated as I don't like getting wet.

    TTC #1 since August 2011

    My Blog

    September 2012: Start IF testing

    DH (32): SA is ok, slightly low morph, normal SCSA  Me (32): Slightly low progesterone, hostile CM, carrier for CF, Moderately high NKC, High TNFa, heterozyogous mutated Factor XIII, and +APA

    November 2014: IVF w/ICSI #4 Agonist/Antagonist with EPP and Prednisone, Baby Aspirin, Lovenox, and IVIG for immune issues.  Converted to freeze all due to lining issues.  2 blasts frozen on day 6!

    January 2015: FET

    PAIF/SAIF Welcome!

  • Hi ladies! Hope everyone is doing well! Loving all those BFPs up there, big congrats to all! As for me, I'm excited for my FET coming up this Wed! We had a week delay due to my lining, so we got pushed into June. Really hoping to see my name up there under June BFPs in just a few weeks!! Eek!!

    QOTW: Well it's not raining here, its supposed to be sunny and 80. We are heading home today from a little last minute weekend getaway at the beach. If it was raining, we'd probably just jet home and I'd be bummed about that. But because it's not, we'll probably hang at the beach a bit more, walk and get some brunch, etc. Hope you're rain clears up soon!
    TTC #1 since Sept 2011
    Me: 33, DH: 35, DX: PCOS & MFI (low everything)
    IUI #1-3 - Low Post-Wash Counts - All BFNs
    IVF #1 w/ ICSI: Long Lupron Protocol - Freeze-All Cycle due to Severe OHSS
    ER 4/27, 33 Eggs Retrieved, 13 Frosties
    FET #1 6/5, Transferred One Perfect 4AA Blast, HPT BFP @ 6dp5dt

    EDD 2/20/14
    Pregnancy Ticker
  • Had a a 2nd round of MTX on Wed, then Thursday had a lap due to abdominal pain from the ectopic.  Fortunately my tube spit the pregnancy out on its own. Internal bleeding was cleared out and a tiny spot of endo was cleaned up. RE said I should have been in a lot more pain. But I got to keep my tube so that was good.  Beta yesterday was down to about 1,000 after a high of 4,200 on Tues. Physically feeling a lot better today but mentally doing worse. I mean seriously, haven't we been through enough already? I'm tired of adding lines to my siggy.  When is this going to be over and what is the end result going to be???

    QOTW: Rain won't interfere with my plans.  I can't do much on my feet without getting tired and my belly is still a little sore so I have to stop and take lots of breaks between my housecleaning, etc.

  • Well, today is CD 34 (with no signs of AF) and I'm pretty sure that it's a BFN. I'll be going to the doctor this week to see what's next.

    QOTW: It's not raining here (mostly sunny and 65!). We're having brunch with DH's parents this morning. And we have our niece's 9th birthday party this afternoon. Wish me luck! Lots of kiddos and babies (and my newborn niece, too!).

  • Good morning everyone! Hope everyone is having a good weekend so far.  As for me, tomorrow is my cd11 monitoring for IUI #2. Hoping for some good follies and a nice thick lining this time. 

    QOTW: it's wet and gray here but not raining at the moment, so I think I'm going to attempt to get a good walk in since I haven't exercised much this week. Then I will be doing some crafting inside.  I want to make a wreath with fabric flowers for the front door and that can be done rain or shine! Crafting always makes me happy!

    QOTW:  if it's stormy out we usually stay home, cuddle up under blankets with the kitties, and watch a movie.

  • This is our last cycle before starting BCP for IVF.  I am not charting, using OPKs or taking the progesterone supps...I just need a complete break.  I am going in on Tuesday for a saline sonogram and we got some of our blood work completed yesterday.  We do have some additional blood work scheduled for next Monday for antiphospholipid antibodies and DQ alpha matching, not looking forward to the $1200 price tag for those tests since they aren't covered by insurance. 

    QOTW:  our best friends had a baby a couple days ago, so I'm gonna go hang out and visit them this afternoon.

    Dx shortened cervix, PTL, and preeclampsia during pregnancy.  Lots of medications and 13 weeks of bedrest, babies were born healthy at 34w4d!

  • I'm hanging in there - on day 3 of Letrozole for IUI#4.  It sounds so crazy to me to say that we are on IUI #4. Sometimes I think, "how he hell did we get here?"

    On my CD3 u/s, it showed that my cysts were gone, which was a huge relief, and so far, no side effects from the meds.  I go in next Friday for my monitoring appointment.

    QOTW:  Sometimes it affects my plans. I live in a large metropolitan area, so I walk everywhere.   If it is coming down in sheets, it is a big PITA to be walking around, but sometimes it's unavoidable.  If I can change my plans, I do. It doesn't affect my mood much though - I love the rain! 

    ** After  2 1/2 years of Unexplained IF, 2 failed medicated cycles, and 4 failed IUI's - our baby girl is coming to us through the miracle of Mini IVF! **

  • Congrats to all the BFPs and HUGS to those who need them!! I am 13dpIUI2 today and plan to test tomorrow morning. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I have absolutely no signs or symptoms. This includes PMS signs too. Last cycle at this time I was already cramping and had bad breakouts and was irritable. I got nothing now. So I really don't k ow if thy is good or bad. I plan to POAS tomorrow AM.

    QOTW: It's raining. Would that change your plans for today or affect your mood? How?
    I am at work 12 hours today so I missed or am missing the rain. I did park in the parking garage instead of an open parking lot because of the rain. I like it when it rains sometimes, but mostly I get lazy and kinda of Eeyore like. I hope everyone has a great day!

    5 days into the 2ww and just passing time and trying not to think about it until I test 12dpo.

    Rain has such a negative impact on my mood, it makes me lazy and kind of sad. Today my plans were grocery shopping, cleaning up, laundry, and relaxing, so it wouldn't interfere, just make me more lazy. I love hot, sunny weather.

  • Hello 3T ladies! Sending {{hugs}} to those who need them today!

    I triggered last night for IUI #1, and ER will be tomorrow!!! I cannot believe we are finally here! I'm suuuuper nervous for the ER and am anticipating some pain due to my high number of follies (20+)... I'm also at risk for OHSS due to high E2 levels (it was 4,658 yesterday), so I'm pounding the electrolyte enhanced water!  Still, I'm hoping for the best. We'll see!

    QOTW: Sometimes I like rain, if I'm in the mood. Since I've been doing a lot of resting at home these past few days, I've sort of been wanting it to rain. I think we're supposed to get some rain today or tomorrow, so maybe that will be good while I'm resting before and after my ER!!

  • Hi ladies, 

    3dpIUI today.  Forgot just how much ooze come from the vag tablet progesterone if you're active and ended up having a mess on my hands at work last night - eww! Needless to say I will not forget pantyliners again.  

    QOTW:  I have to work again this afternoon/evening so it wouldn't change my plans, but as for change of mood?  Eh, it depends on the day.  Most raining days I like to snuggle watching TV with DH and eat comfort food like soup.

  • Hi all,

    I'm at 8dpIUI today.   The progesterone suppositories have me  crazy bloated and since I already had a little pot belly in the first place I now look pregnant.    Other than feeling huge I am fine.

    ~~~~~~~~  EVERYONE IS WELCOME  ~~~~~~~~

  • Read all your posts.  I wish we would all get our BFPs asap.  Someone posted they couldn't believe they were on IUI #4....seriously you are right I can't believe it.  I was very hopeful that IUIs 1-3 would work.  

     Anyways, this is my first IUI with injects cycle- IUI #4.  Today will be my 6th day of Gonal F injects.  They aren't terrible but I have some bruising.   My Sono on Friday- CD 6 showed 2 decent follicles so far and several smaller.  Tomorrow is my CD 9 Sono and hopefully there will be more follicles and those 2 will be larger.  IUI will probably be at the end of the week.  I'm so hoping this is it for us.  

     Good luck to everyone this cycle! 


    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

  • Hi ladies!! Thanks so much for the T&P's for the hubs and I while he is going through more tests for his stroke. He is doing really well right now and back at work full time with a few restrictions. Other than that, I'm in my first official 2WW that I actually know of. I flucking ovulated on CD17! I am 9DPO today. Had some brown discharge/super light pink spotting yesterday, so not sure if I should get my hopes up yet for this cycle, especially because we are not doing treatment right now, but regardless, I O'd for the first time in almost two years. So, yaaaay for that! Just waiting to test until Friday when AF is due. 

     QOTW: Rainy days really get me down. I don't like to leave the house when its gloomy. Usually, if I don't have to work or have other plans, I lay in bed with the dog and watch movies all day.

  • I finally have an update!  I went to the RE and I am scheduled for a Lap and HSG on June 11!  I am super stoked about and ready to get going!  The RE is also going to do some wedging or laser drilling of my ovaries while he is in there.  I started BC yesterday to prepare for the surgery and will start femara at the start of my next cycle and do TI.  If we go a few cycles with no luck, we will move to IUI.  I cannot believe this is going to happen!

    QOTW:  if it is raining, I don't usually change my plans unless I have outdoor plans.  Rain doesn't bother me in general and has little to no effect on my mood.

  • Congrats to all the BFP's and ::hugs:: to anyone who needs them right now! 11 dpIUI, CD25. I'm starting to feel the itch to test! But I want to wait until 13 dpIUI/CD27 because... wait for it... my lucky numbers are 1, 3, and 7. Yes, I know, that is incredibly lame, but it is true. I also don't want to test too early and see a BFN. Even if this cycle's a bust, I don't want to see it before it's too early to be "real" if you know what I mean.I am feeling some phantom symptoms right now that could go either way. I am choosing to remain hopeful and positive. We've nicknamed the hopeful embryo "Harvey" after the vintage board game Hang on, Harvey! and have been using that as our little chant. We are big dorks around here, lol************warning: children mentioned (not mine)************** I went for a run with my former coach/friend today and found out that he and his wife went through IF treatments to bring them their beautiful twins. They went to the same RE that I'm going to!! It was kinda funny talking to my coach about it because he didn't know all the info that his wife surely knows about their treatment history. I went into total sleuth mode and found out that they were at the treatments for 4 months and that she did injects of some sort. I don't think it was IVF because I'd like to believe that he'd know the difference if they got to that point. This inspired so much hope!!***********end of warning: everything below is "safe"*************** QOTW: It was sunny and hot today, but rain would have sabotaged my plans. I went for a trail run this morning (glorious!) and to my DH's car show in the afternoon. It was a great day! I got to see a lot of people I love including my dad & sister :)

    QOTW: It's raining. Would that change your plans for today or affect your mood? How?  A little bit.  I was visiting my family in Pgh and a big part of the day was going to watch my little sister's soccer game.

  • Hi ladies.

    Hugs to everyone.

    We are on another break cycle while trying to see what insurance will cover for our next IUI cycle with injects. I am just getting insurance BOMs from my last cycle that look like I have reached my lifetime max of what they will cover for infertility which sucks... So when I call on Monday we will see what next cycle will cost us. :( but since I didn't know I had infertility coverage at all I guess I am grateful for what they did cover.

    QOTW: It's raining. Would that change your plans for today or affect your mood? How?  It luckily didn't rain here, which was good because we spent the day at the lake with my parents playing on their new boat. It was a little chilly and windy but we still had to go out on it!

    Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker
  • We are currently taking a break from treatment and meds, unhappy with my RE and not being upfront about actual costs. We are paying off the current bills and evaluating where we want to go afterwards. DH is concerned about the risk of cancer taking all these hormones and the fact that cancer runs in my family and I'm just tired. So we are taking a break. No temping or drugs or anything.

    It's been good this month, less stress so we will reevaluate next month. I am pretty sure I am somewhere in a 2WW. AF is due Wednesday and I'll only test if she doesn't show.
