Hi ladies!

Good luck to everyone cycling!!  We'll be thinking of you tomorrow @kaf7!  There seems to be lots of exciting things going on - ladies going back to the RE and starting up cycles... keep us updated!

((Hugs)) to everyone else who needs them.

This check-in is open to anyone that is part of the SAIF community and is currently TTC again, either on their own, or via injectibles, IUI, IVF, adoption, etc. Occasionally, I do a bit of clean up. If you have dropped off and would like to be added again, just comments and you'll be back in business :)

TTC again, even after successfully bringing home a LO (or multiple LOs) is a stressful process for all of us, and this group is meant to allow us the opportunity to provide support and suggestions to one another, and to receive the same in return.

A check-in will be posted every week. Please send me a PM or reply to the check-in post if you would like to be added to the group.  Each check-in will provide the opportunity for you to provide an update as to where you currently are in your TTC. 

QOTW:  What is your favorite meal to make (or eat, if you don't cook!)?  Have you tried any new recipes lately?  Share them if you can!!  (I'm obviously in a cooking rut!)

TTC, without meds, hoping for a wonderful "surprise!"

AKB090609I had an us yesterday to check for cysts since I'm on cd48. The tech saw 'something', but of course couldn't tell me what. Waiting is hard. 

ancp27 1/15 - We are TTC, kind of. We planned to go back to the RE this month but still no AF. I'll start charting for a few months once it's back. I'm not sure if we'll do any IUI'S r go straight to IVF. Hopefully we'll get lucky again.

Byrne15 - TTC #3, no treatments this time. Just hoping for success the old fashioned way :)

Ducky719 – 1/15 - Still no AF here...just waiting and waiting.  Not that I'm in a rush for her to show.  PP cycles are just wonky.  LO will be a year in a month...that's when I'll probably start doing BBT again and charting. 

Cbubbles2 - currently TTC on own, FET in 2014

Mayzie15 - 1/8 - Still need to set up appt with my RE for my AFC hopefully will do this soon.  

Mnerani - 1/15 - Excited to have a positive update. From what I can tell, I'm 4 DPO without meds! I made this post a couple of days ago, but we decided not to cycle this month after a crappy canceled IUI cycle and I temped and used OPKs for the heck of it- shockingly I ovulated on my own. Now I'm in this dreaded 2WW you hear so much about ;) 

PappsMcGee - planning to go back to seek treatments when ready (FX for a surprise for you in the mean time!)

TTC, with treatments

BabyKsMommy  - 1/15 - Well after my cycle being cancelled I took provera and ended last Wednesday and still no AF. But I am inconsistent when I get it after taking provera so hopefully it will come soon. 

Bellalou - 1/15 - Start protocol tonight (1/16) !!! FET date is 2/3!

chiwifey 1/15 - We were all set to start IVF with my upcoming cycle in about 2 weeks. However the tentative ER/ET week DH will be in Rhode Island for work  :( Initially my new RE suggested very minimal bcps and begin stims and then I asked about not doing them at all due to over suppression. He agreed to that but now I'm going to see his thoughts on doing minimal bcps because that could push a week or so and DH would be back in town and would could cycle earlier than the end of Feb. Not sure what he'll say but it was his idea to begin with so I don't see why he would say no. If he does though we'll be waiting to cycle at then end of Feb/beginning of Mar. I know I should just relax and let it be but the new DOR diagnosis has me seriously stressed about time.

ccam  1/15 - Started estrogen patches on Saturday and just waiting for my transfer on 1/30.

Efhoping2010 - 1/15 - I have an order for CD 3 blood work from my last clinic, they are going to test AMH and FSH.  Clinic 1 did not return my call yet.

Emwaiting - TTC #2, I have never checked in before.  We had to do IVF for #1 and we were lucky to have IVF work on the first try.  DS is almost 3 months and I am currently on day 4 of Provera.  I will start Clomid and Femara after AF arrives, monitor follicles and then do timed intercourse and see what happens.  Drs think our best chance for #2 is to try ASAP and we are sooo lucky DS is such a good baby!!!

fullfhope - 1/15 - No real update here, just waiting for AF then expecting to start IVF cycle. Not sure what/when to expect this because it is only my second pp.

Hadams85 - 5 days into my 2WW. Had my first IUI last Thursday. Trying to wait oh so patiently for next week to test. No signs or symptoms yet, almost like nothing has happened.

Hopeful1981 - TTC #2, currently on CD34 waiting for AF to start so that I can embark on my IVF cycle.  I have endo and have been on Lupron since CD23.  Will be stimming with Follistim and Menopur. 

Kaf7 -  1/15 - Transfer is Thursday (1/16).

mdiblasi10 -  1/15 - Still waiting for AF to start IUI #4. Today is CD31, lots of spotting and feeling like she will be here tonight or tomorrow morning.

MoFree - 1/15 - We have decided to do a natural cycle FET in February. I would have preferred March but there's a conference at the end of the month that I need to attend. I feel so much better that I won't have to take Lupron.

nycbride0707 - I go in Sat for one last check, and then hopefully everything looks good and transfer in Sunday, with beta 11/19. Been doing PIO since Tues, man I'm sore!

PennyLane26 - 1/15 - AF began on it's own on Monday - no need for Provera (woo hoo!!). Had CD3 bw and u/s this morning and have a sono scheduled for next Wednesday. Then I'm done with pre-cycle testing and looking ahead to our FET for next cycle! Yay!!

readyornot24 - 12/27 - My ivf was a bust, got the dreaded BFN call yesterday. I will be on hold for now until my wtf appointment and then go from there.

Rjade9 - I'd like to be added!  We have our appointment with our RE next Thursday to come up with a plan for our FET.  In the meantime we are not, not trying  

ON A BREAK, hoping to get back in the game soon

Bearfootz - hugs and healing coming your way TTC on hold until 2014, making great weight loss progress. You go girl! :)

kzawisl 1/8 - No update. Still saving our pennies and hoping for Menopur donations from OOP meds or my RE.

millie1984 - 1/15 - We are not actively trying yet, but MH and I have an appointment with our RE today to talk about IVF for TTC#2.  We are going to go over things like cost and if our insurance will cover PGD, etc.  We are also going to see if I am a candidate for IVF.  So we're hoping to come out of the day with a game plan and more of a timeline for when we want to start officially TTC again.  

Robeano - 12/27 - after some soul searching, I'm gonna take a break from trying until I get down to pre-pregnancy weight. I gained a bunch of weight in the last two months and I don't want to start off being pregnant this heavy.

Re: ~*~* TTC Again Check-in 1.15.14 *~*~

  • Thanks for the shout out! Transfer is Thursday. I was looking up DOR meds when responding to a post that @chiwifey made and now I am questioning whether we could have had a better response with not using menopur. My RE wasn't going to use it on me but we had just enough for the cycle left over from when DH was on it so to save money he put us on that instead...now I'm wondering if we could've had a better result and more options if we hadn't tried to save a few dollars. Ugh!! I know it may all be a moot point but I hope that I can have a clear conscience if this embie doesn't stick. Stupid hormones!!

    In other news I was super nauseated last night after my 3rd dose of prometrium. Not sure if it was that dinner didn't agree with me or if it is the meds. I hope it was dinner...

    And DH is barely coping with looking after LO and the dog all day. LO screamed at him almost all day yesterday. I feel badly, but it is also really nice for me to see old friends, have a nap if I want, or read a book when I want to. 

    QOTW: I love a ham sandwich on a bagel. That doesn't help your cooking rut though. The friend I'm staying with made a new recipe the other night and it was some arugula with a tahini dressing, quinoa, roasted cubes of butternut squash, and chicken. It was pretty good. We agreed it could use something else and thought some chopped green apple might have worked.

    Update:  Still truckin' along!  Started estrogen patches on Saturday and just waiting for my transfer on 1/30.

    QOTW:  I like to make quick meals that taste good, but I don't have many that I love!  I need to utilize my crock pot more!  I love making Mexican food, like fajitas with cilantro lime rice and black beans.  It's easy and everyone loves it, including DS. 

    I recently tried 2 new chicken recipes that I'll definitely make again:

    https://www.bakeatmidnite.com/2013/07/mushroom-asiago-chicken.html  (This was delicious, I made with rice pilaf and roasted asparagus. It is more of a special occasion meal for us because it's definitely not very good on the waistline!  I don't usually cook with heavy cream.  It would probably be awesome over pasta.)

    https://wearychef.com/avocado-salsa-chicken/  (Super easy and DH loved it.)

  • GL kaf!!!!!!!!!!

    AF began on it's own on Monday - no need for Provera (woo hoo!!). Had CD3 bw and u/s this morning and have a sono scheduled for next Wednesday. Then I'm done with pre-cycle testing and looking ahead to our FET for next cycle! Yay!!

    QOTW: I am the cook in the house so, needless to say, I like anything that is easy! I typically do the prep work while G eats dinner and then put it together and cook it after she is in bed (she goes in around 6, we eat at 7). I love easy meals - turkey meatloaf/turkey burgers, pasta with meat sauce, tacos, any and all versions of chicken breast (breaded, chicken parm, grilled, stuffed). I try to do a vegetarian meal at least twice a week (we buy organic and meat gets expensive!) - I'll make a couple nights worth of soup in the crockpot or make ravioli and salad.

    Here is an easy, healthy and delicious recipe to share:

    Southwest Chicken Salad
    1 rotisserie chicken, shredded (though you could make this vegetarian and skip the chicken!)
    1 head iceberg lettuce, chopped
    1 bell pepper, diced
    1 avocado, diced
    1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
    1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed
    1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
    Dressing: Mix together 1/2 c plain greek yogurt, 2 T mayo, 1/2 packet ranch seasoning, 1/2 packet taco seasoning (though I usually make my own).

    Toss all ingredients with dressing and serve! 

    dx: MFI 0% morph & low count. Occasional Anovulatory cycles.

    TTC #1
    • IVF #1 4/21/12 - c/p
    • IVF#2 8/1/12 - BFP! DD arrived 4/10/2013.

  • Good luck to everyone this month!

    No update here..counting down the time. 8 weeks AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    QOTD: Favorite food to cook is Stuffed Peppers but DH hates it so I don't make it often. I am terrible at cooking meat but I'm actually proud of my meal from the other day. I made beef stew which I only made once before in the crock pot and it was terrrrrible. Meat was hard as a rock etc. But this time..I guess I did it right..so delish!

    Married: 5/09 ~ TTC Since: 10/10 ~ PCOS ~ Progesterone from 10/10 - 2/11 ~ HSG on 3/18 - Clear ~ Started Metformin 1000mg & Clomid 50mg 2/11 ~ Metformin upped to 1500mg 4/6 ~ 6/7 Now going to SG and put on Clomid, Ovidrel, Gonal F, Prometrium, Estrace ~ IUI #1 7/2 = BFP!!!!!! March 6th our little man was born.

    10/29/17 - Started process for IVF, got pregnant & miscarried a 2nd time since summer. 2/22 started stims - Menopur, Gonal F, Cetrotide - retrieval 3/6 - , PIO, estrace 3xday - FET 4/18 = Beta 1: 616; Beta 2: 1342 = BFP 

  • Gl to everyone cycling this month.

    We have decided to do a natural cycle FET in February. I would have preferred March but there's a conference at the end of the month that I need to attend. I feel so much better that I won't have to take Lupron.

    . I try to cook simple recipes with real ingredients. My DH does some of the cooking, mostly on weekends. https://www.quinoa.com/recipes/details/curried_lentils_and_cauliflower.html. This is one of my favorite vegetarian meals. You can easily adjust the spices.

    Now I'm in this dreaded 2WW you hear so much about ;)

    DH and I will be apart for a lot of Feb and March, so this might be our only chance until later this spring. Not to put too much pressure on myself...

    QOTD: You are going to kill me, but here in Kenya we actually have a house staff, including a cook, so I don't do much cooking except eggs in the morning. But there are lots of cons about living here, including the cost of pregnancy tests- $35 each for a digi!


    DH and I are Americans living an adventure in Kenya since 2011
    DX: PCOS (annovulatory)
    Feb 2012: IUI #1 w/ only 1M sperm and a single follie = BFP! 
    Nov 2012: Little buddy born in Kenya
    Nov 2013: Trying for a second, still w PCOS
    Dec 2013: IUI cycle canceled for non-response
    Jan 2014: Break cycle BFP!

    @Mnerani Yes, I might kill you ;)  That's amazing! 

    @MoFree Good luck!!  Just curious, how does a natural cycle work?  Do they just monitor you more closely?  Are there any meds?

  • Everyone is updated so far!

    @chiwifey I hope it works out!!  I know how disappointing it is to face a setback.

    @MoFree I pushed you back into the TTC with treatments section.

    @Millie1984 Good luck today!!  I stuck you into the on a break section??  I think that's the best fit.

    So we are on vaca in Florida, doing the disney thing! Having a blast, and i am still pregnant, bleeding has FUNALLY stoped and i go back tursday for another us on tuesday! Fingers crossed!

    QOTD: no cooking on vaca but i did have an amazing mac nut crusted fish that i will be making at home later! :)

    Started TTC in 2006, LOTS of trying, and trying, and 7 rounds of IVF with 13 embryos, 2 perfect little boys and 5 loses....
    All finished with babies, started to make diet changes, Keto, to be MORE for my kids, lost 30 pounds, still going, and 3 months in, I had a natural cycle, and then ovulated... Hubs and I are going to see what happens now... Maybe a natural pregnancy? After everything we have been through? Or just a return to normal hormones? We shall see what the future holds!

    Baby Dust To All!!!

  • Well after my cycle being cancelled I took provera and ended last Wednesday and still no AF. But I am inconsistent when I get it after taking provera so hopefully it will come soon.

    DH is freaking out over the cost of IVF and still believes if we have enough sex then I will get pg. while it's possible it's VERY unlikely.

  • Hi ladies! I've been waiting for this :) this is my first check in here. We are TTC, kind of. We planned to go back to the RE this month but still no AF. I'll start charting for a few months once it's back. I'm not sure if we'll do any IUI'S r go straight to IVF. Hopefully we'll get lucky again. My favorite food to cook is pasta, all different types.
    *Formerly peainthepod?* TTC since 1/1/2006. All cycles BFN! IUI's & IVF with no luck. Emergency surgery 11/07 due to hemmoraging cyst on left ovary. 3rd HSG showed complete blockage of right tube (the good side), endo/cysts/adhesion removal 11/11. New start for 2012! Surprise BFP 6/17/12, due 2/12/13. It's a boy!!! Baby Boy born on January 26, 2013.
