Bottoms Up by Brantley Gilbert..can't figure out how to post but that will be my drinking song. BFN..kinda figured. THANK YOU for all the positive wishes..hugs..making me laugh and wanting to sacrifice a chicken of all things. Love you gals more than you know. Guess I'll still be hanging out to see if we do a FET. DE coordinator thinks my estrogen had a part. She is going to talk to dr to see if anything different needs to be done if we cycle again. Its funny on how long I waited to do this cycle and...poof...its over in 2 weeks. This all f*cking sucks :(

ME:46 MH:44 DE IVF 2014
Met with RE 4/11. 2 IUI's BFN. DE best option. Switched clinics to do "shared" program. Had to retake all tests and a mamm that put me behind and then on a DE waiting list for 12 months. Picked a donor!! (10/13/13) Got matched. Estimated transfer in December. After 2.5 years of patiently waiting I will finally cycle....can hardly believe it. DE cycle got cancelled. One of her tests came back positive.  Waiting for another donor. Donor picked!! (1/18/14)

DE IVF #1 (4/26) BFN  DE FET #1 (6/4) BFP! Beta 1=339 Beta 2=852 Beta 3=9957 EDD 2/22/15!!

Re: Who is drinking with me tonight....

  • I am so sorry (and so pissed off at the universe right now).  Nothing about that is fair or doesn't suck!  I will at least have several virtual drinks for you.  And I will shake my fist angrily at the ceiling a lot, too.

    I don't know if it's the official version of your drinking song, but here.

    I feel confident that DH will come around about the FET, and that they'll get your estrogen where it needs to be to make it work, but I am just so sorry.

    Huge, huge hugs to you.

  • I am SO sorry!  This is completely unfair!  

    It is good that they are looking at what the cause is and may have an idea where to focus for your FET (I too am confident that your DH will come around).  

    In the interim, I hope you and DH can grieve and comfort each other and take the time you need to determine next steps.

    Since I just had my transfer yesterday, no wine for me sadly, but I will be thinking of you.

    Sending you BIG {{{HUGS}}}

  • Becky, I'm so sorry that this time wasn't successful. I'll drink a glass of wine with you in spirit tonight. I also hope that you and your DH can come to a decision when the time is right. 

    So wish that I could give you a hug. Much love to you.

  • I am so angry at the world for you right now.  I thought for sure you'd be all set with your DE and we'd all be cheering your BFP today.  there are no words or enough drinks in the world for me to express how sad I am for you.  However, the glimmer of hope is that you do have frosties.  We will all come to your house and beat the crap our of YH if he does not want to go for a FET.  After all that you've been through on this journey it would be utterly insane to not go for it. 

    Sending you all the comfort I can via the internets today and always and I hope that you can find some peace when the time is right.

  • I'm so sorry Becky! I would hop on a plane and drink all night with you if I weren't in the middle of my own craptastic cycle. I agree with private one you are so fortunate to have those frosties and you deserve to be a mom. no reason not to go forward with an FET. We might all have to come and have a chat with YH ;). Take care of yourself and my thoughts are with you during this tough time.

    Me 38 MH 41 - TTC since June 2010 - dx with Severe MFI. Straight to IVF with ICSI. IVF #1 - ER 06/13/12 - 9 Eggs Retrieved - 4 ICSI'd - only 2 fert. 06/15/12 - 2DT - 3 cell & 6 cell with fragmentation. Beta 06/29/12 - IVF #1 = BFN. 07/20/12 - WTF Appt -Told by our RE to quit IVF. Second Opinion from RE is good. IVF#2 - November 2012. Estradiol Pills Started 11/6. Stims start 11/16. ER 11/26 - 7 eggs retrieved - all mature. 4 fertilized with ICSI. ET 11/29 Transferred 3 embryos. Beta is 12/10. 1st Beta 81 2nd Beta 160 and 3rd beta 360!!! First U/S 12/21/12 - We saw one beautiful gest. sac. 2nd U/S is 01/04/2013 - H/B 183 02/05/13 - NT Scan - everything looks good and IT'S A BOY!  Aiden was born 08/20/2013.

    IVF #2 is in progress.  ER was 05/12/14 - 11 eggs retrieved, 8 fertilized with ICSI.  ET was 05/15/14 - we transferred 3 embryos as we did on the cycle my son was conceived.  We were able to freeze 3 embryos. Beta is scheduled for 05/26/14.  1st beta - 111.  2nd beta - 159 didn't double :( 3rd beta Friday 5/30) - not a lot of hope left. Beta # 3 is 247 - probably ectopic.  Beta # 4 is 813 - possibly vanishing multiple sydrome?  06/05/14 - 5w4days - first U/S - we see a gestational sac and yolk - still have hope!  06/17/14 - 7w1day - U/S and saw and heard the heartbeat - Finally!  06/27/14 - 8w4days - Baby and heartbeat look and sound great :)  EDD 02/01/14 and It's a boy!

    Becky, I'm so very sorry this cycle didn't work for you. I agree with the other ladies -- having frosties is a blessing and wasting them would be a shame.

    I'm very sensitive to diet (gluten, avoid processed foods) and environment. Have a history of inflammation and tendinitis before going off gluten in 2009.  
    July 2014 - RE Visit #1: Eggs look good, Endometrioma on R ovary, HSG showed blocked R tube close to ovary. DH SA normal 
    DX: Endometriosis probably the IF cause and gunking up tubes.  Since egg reserve is high, RE says I can wait a couple months and then get laproscopic surgery to remove endo & clear tube.  If that doesn't help then move to IVF. 
    Dec 2014 - Saw new RE - does not recommend surgery on tube as it isn't likely to help.  Doubts I have endometriosis.  My endometrioma shrunk to neglible size (yay!)

    I am so sorry.  I was hoping that this would be the first of many BFPs for this board in the upcoming weeks.  Hopefully you will be able to do a FET with the rest of the embryos.  The fact that many of us can share a drink with you makes us even closer.
