Trouble TTC

~~~3T Weekly Check-In!~~~

First, shout out and big THANK YOU to GermanGirl for the refresher post yesterday! Welcome to all the new ladies.

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

If you're finally getting your BFP, please PM me so I don't miss it! Also, this helps me avoid posting an ambiguous BFP if you're not ready to officially call it.

Reply to this post if you would like your information updated.  Please post an update at least monthly so I know you are still active - even if your info hasn't changed. You will be removed if you go more than 4 weeks without posting.

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)?
4.What treatments are you doing?

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

QOTW: Thanks to Tigger - What was your first date with your husband?

If your name is in italics below, heads up - we need an update or you're getting deleted! Thanks!

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

  • We are cruising along with IVF #1.  I have my calendar review and injects training tomorrow and start Lupron wednesday.  Also my last BCP is next Sunday, which I'm hoping ends the spotting I've had for the last week.

  • I'd love for you to add me :)

    Name: Jenni

    TTC since: Aug 2012

    DX: MFI, low morph

    Going through my end of the diagnostic testing this month, and then creating a plan:)  Had my CD3 today, HSG Friday, and so on and so forth...

    So glad to have so many supportive ladies to talk to! Thank you!


    ETA: First date was at a bar.  So unoriginal lol. 

    Wedding Countdown Ticker
  • Nothing really new to report.  I tested too early, got a BFN and temp has slightly dropped.  Not enough to signal AF but enough to make me nervous.  I can't wait to get our SA results and finally get a plan.

     We did the typical dinner date for our first but we traveled between places for each course.  We finished the night at a comedy club.  I apparently passed the sense of humor test.  I have never laughed so hard!

  • Today is CD 33 and this cycle has resulted in another BFN. I started spotting a few days ago and I'm fully expecting AF any minute now. So, yeah.

    We'll be going to the doctor this week in order to discuss the next step. He said (at our last appointment) that we'll probably be giving fertility shots a try, but DH and I have decided that we're not quite ready for that. And that means that we're officially on a break.

    And this is a much needed break. Not only do we need to step back and explore all options (we're considering adoption at this point), but we'll also be trying to meet a couple of personal goals during this time off.

    QOTW: DH and I were both 15 years old when we started dating. Since we weren't old enough to drive, we usually would just hang out at home and watch movies. Not sure how many of these movies we actually saw though. I seem to remember that there was a lot of kissing involved. ;)

    *Taking a break*  

  • I'm on CD2, and this cycle we're moving on to IUI. I'm happy to move on, but am a little concerned about doing another Clomid cycle - my response has never been good, but my RE wants one more try before going to injects. 

    My first date with my husband was at the convention where we met. We had dinner at Bar Louie, then he had meetings for 3 hours. We met back up and ended up staying up talking until 6am. Not totally romantic, but we made up for it after the convention!

  • Congrats to all the BFPs and HUGs to all who need them!!!!! I am 10dpIUI 4. I started cramping today so I'm not sure what that means. Sometimes I start cramping a few days before AF, so I'm not feelin optimistic at this point. Ugh!! I so wanted this to be it!! I am getting closer and closer to being financially infertile. IF sucks!!
    QOTW: first date is debatable. I think I was going the see The Villiage in theaters and then we went to eat a Taco Bell. He took me out after work in high school.

  • Hi all, hope everyone had a nice weekend!

    Currently waiting for the official results of my endo biopsy.  Saw the pathology report on my portal, but it didn't have much info.  It did say the sample tested negative for plasma cells which seems to be a good thing.  I'll update after I get the call from the RE.

    For the first time since March I may have ovulated on my own.  My chart is a little jacked due to not temping during vacation and insomnia Saturday night, but if I input usual pre-O temps for the missing days I get dotted CHs for CD15.  There was huge drop today so my confidence is shaken a bit.  We'll see what tomorrow brings.

    QOTW:  DH and I met during a long weekend trip with mutual friends to an anime convention (yes, we are huge nerds) and started dating on the last day.  We walked around holding hands and making googly eyes at each other.  We have been back to that con every year except the last two due to lack of vacation time.

    ETA Update: Pathology came back clear, I start Clomid next cycle.

  • Af arrived and because I have shorter cycles, or at least I did before CP, I should be gearing up to O. DH and I talked about revisiting the no meds in a few months if no success so still just HIO and hoping for the best. Hopefully I will O soon and then I can relax or at least relax as much as one is able in the 2WW.


    DH and I met thru online site and our first date was at a little pizza place and segued into coffee. We got engaged at the same little place on our 1 year anniversary of dating. Haven't been lately so we should go back soon.

  • Hi all.  Sorry for being a bit absent lately - I've been having a tougher time with IF as our four break cycles are coming to an end and it looks like we'll be headed back to the RE.  And by an end, I mean I still have 22-25 days left in this cycle but I'm not feeling optimistic.

    I'm due to O sometime next week, so we'll start the constant sex on Friday. I'm so over being scheduled - after I O'd last month, we didn't do it again for three and a half weeks.  And we were that couple who couldn't get enough of it before we started trying to get pregnant!

    I'm doing Pregnitude this month (only missed one dose so far!) and drinking some spearmint tea whenever I feel like it. I'll skip caffeine all together starting Friday (CD 15) until AF arrives.  Next cycle will be Follistim + trigger + IUI 2.2.

    On the upside, I'm down about 3 pounds and about 1/2 - 1 full size. But I've been busting it in the gym (I forgot how much lunges hurt at first!). 

    QOTW: We met at a house party, and after DH had facebook stalked me for two months, we had our first date at a sushi place that we still go to on special occasions (and for no reason too). We got engaged there six months and 1 week after our first date. (I told him that he wasn't allowed to propose until we had been together for at least six months.)  That was on the day William and Kate got married. Guess that's also bothering me today.

  • I am new here....I am active on TTGP, but I would also like to be able to participate here :)

    I'm Honey and my husband and I have been TTC since 8/2012 - we really winged it until December, then I started charting and all that fun stuff!

    Our official Dx is MFI, but we have decided against further testing for me (I just had BW) because we are OOP and we are going to continue to try on our own and     re-evaluate in December.

    Our first date involved walking around town - we were in 8th grade and that's what 8th graders do!

  • Just chugging along. 7dpiui natural cycle. May or may not do an inject cycle next month, depends if it interferes with our vacation and if I've lost more weight or not. I'm trying to lost the past year's worth of fertility med and depression weight, lol. Until then, we do natural IUIs since I have coverage and I feel like I'm doing something. Hubbys doing well on the clomid and I'm waiting to see how my period is this month to judge how well the lap helped my endo. Hopefully I won't get it though, we'll see :

    We went out for pizza... my favorite!!

    Good luck to all xo

  • Hi Ladies!  On BCP here for another week and a half.  Then will be back to injects and IUI # 3.  The failure of IUI # 2 hit me much harder than I expected and I will be going to an IF support group tonight that my RE offers.

    QOTW:  DH and I went bowling and for ice cream.  We are not bowling people, we have probably been a handful of times since then (12 years ago!) so I'm not sure why we picked that activity but it was fun :)

  • When did you start TTC (month/year)?  September 2011 What is your diagnosis (if you have one)?  Me:  PCOS (2003);  DH:  MFI due to Low T (2012) What treatments are you doing?  Current plan is to start first IUI cycle in August with Clomid, FSH, and trigger.  DH is on 3x weekly HCG shots.   Injection class is the beginning of August.  It will be interesting to see how it differs from the class that we took for DH's shots.  First date:  We met on line and our first date wasn't until about two months later.  If I remember correctly, we planned to have lunch downtown and then spend an hour or two in the museums.  Turns out that the date lasted until 10 pm and it finally ended since we both had to go to work the next day.  DH said that we would either get sick of each other within a few weeks or end up married (9 years ago).

  • Hi Everybody

    Congrats to the new BFP's and hugs to anyone that needs them!

    I'm sorry that I haven't been participating much lately.  I've been working hard on pulling myself together emotionally. :-/

    We are basically benched right now. In the meantime, I am planning to lose a bit of weight and also to concentrate on our finances.  We are researching our treatment options and have ruled out surrogacy...  I am leaning toward IVF because it can tell me if our problem is an egg quality issue.

     Edit:  Forgot to add our first date!

    We went to a buffet lunch place.  My husband is a skinny guy, but he brought 8 plates of food to the table out of sheer nervousness!

    RUMBERA: 35+ Current DX: Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL)

    01/30/14  Self-benched to get healthy for IVF
    03/04/14  Screwed over by insurance.   No IVF coverage.
    03/12/14  Hail Mary B2B IUI's with 2 follies=BFFN
    3/25/14  IVF is the next step.  We are exploring doing it overseas in 2015.

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

  • I haven't checked-in in awhile, but not much to report.  We've been TTC for 2 years, since July 2011.  Had two IUIs this Spring, but both were BFN.  Took June and July off from IUIs due to travel schedules.  Waiting for AF to start in a few weeks so that we can begin IUI #3.

    My first date with my husband was to a local smoothie place - I don't drink coffee, so this was the next best thing for a low-key first date!

  • Cycle day 4. Trying on our own before our repeat SA next month. It will be 3 months since Dh starts taking Fertility Blend, so we are hoping to see improvement. 

    QOTW: Thanks to Tigger - What was your first date with your husband?  We went to Outback Steakhouse, and then we saw The Grudge. We both hate scary movies, but we each thought the other wanted to see it. I kicked him under the table during dinner, because he was watching basketball on a tv behind me while I was talking. Lol.

  • Hello everyone, I am in the dreaded 2ww of iui #3. I am 12dpiui and no sign of AF yet. I have been having a lot of symptoms like nausea, heartburn(which I never get), and headaches to name a few. I don't know if the mean anything or not. Like a fool I tested way too early, 10, 11, and 12 dpiui BFN. The first 2 cycles I had spotting by day 8 and AF by day 10 so I am hoping for the best but expecting the worst. We shall see!!

  • I had my saline sono/mock transfer last Wednesday and it went well - no polyps or fibroids.  Now I just have to wait until next Monday to hear what protocol RE wants to do and cost - so we can then plan WHEN to do our IVF cycle.  

    QOTW:  Our first "official" date was a baseball game - Brewers vs Giants Mid July 2007, then dinner at Applebee's, and drinks and pool at a local bar.  **But** We'd met several times and hung out before.  Our first kiss was my 29th birthday six months prior but then he didn't ask for my number or anything.  And then two weeks before our first "official" date, my friends came up for Summerfest when I had free tickets and my BFF (who said DH & I would get married because we were "perfect for each other") asked if he could come.  I still liked him, but didn't know if he liked me.  The night went great and thankfully that "one night stand" ended up the love of my life. LOL.  I was so happy when I called to invite him to the game that he said yes.  Eight months later we moved in together and got engaged.
