  • Btw I can't believe that I totally forgot to list my pet peeves. These come to mind:

    When people say verbal when they mean oral. Writing, speaking, or anything else that involves words is verbal. Oral is not a dirty word -- no reason to avoid saying it!

    It's pronounced (and spelled) et cetera, not ec cetera!

    Oh, and people who honk when it cannot possibly do any good.

    Ceemonkey: good luck on your transfer!

    Becky: so sorry about your BFN. Sou great news that your employer will pay for your FET!

    Hi to EOE! Sorry to not do more personals -- am on iPhone!
  • @2Mamaz - sorry about the GD. 
    @Ceemonkey - GOOD LUCK this week! 
    @BeckyP005 - *HUGS* sweetie. I'm so sorry. 

    TTC since April 2010
    BFP #1 – March 2011, missed m/c April 2011
    BFP #2 – October 2011, m/c November 2011
    Surprise BFP #3 – December 2011, diagnosed as cornual, terminated January 2012
    BFP #4 – June 2012, m/c July 2012
    Diagnosed with bicornuate ute and MTHR gene mutation
    BFP #5 – October 2012, missed m/c November 2012
    BFP #6 – January 2013, m/c March 2013
    No longer TTC. Diagnosis: Hostile ute. Heartbroken and bitter. Pursuing surrogacy.
    June 2013 - Carrier found! Could this really happen?!
    ~All AL always welcome~

  • Check-In: Things are going fine.  Had RE appt and he's fine with my sister and I using same donor.  He's also "intrigued" with possibly doing an IVF cycle with my own egg before going straight to donor, so we're weighing pros & cons of that.  Sister is taking a break anyway, so there's no great hurry.

    QOTW: I do believe mine have all been covered.  Right now my "boss" (my fiance) is my biggest pet peeve - it's hard working and living together.

    Me: 43, DOR   FI: 44, SA normal
    TTC Since Nov 2013

    01/2014: Meeting with RE to discuss options

    05/2014: meeting with RE to discuss Donor IVF options
    09/2014 - IVF#1 - converted to IUI - BFN

  • Hi ladies :)  We've scheduled our phone consult for May 28th with Dr. Duffy at FIRM.  Our first transfer was with Dr. Winslow but I didn't have a great experience, at least not what I expected, so we decided to switch.  I'm hoping that Dr. Duffy will have some answers for us and a new plan for our 2nd transfer.  Hopefully we won't have to do a 3rd.  We have 3 embryos left and I'm pretty sure we are transferring 2 again.  That only leaves 1 snowflake.  I'm getting anxious about the consult already.  I'm just hoping he has some answers for us and acknowledges the concerns that I have.  I asked DH what our next step would be if this transfer failed and he immediately said adoption.  I'm just not sure if I'm ready to close the door on carrying my own child yet.

    QOTW:  I have too many to list here but I was cracking up reading many here.  A lot of them are mine too.

    AFM: No update, just waiting for my lap which is 10 days from now.

    QOTW: DH has been trying to quit smoking since Sept. and is doing a terrible job. He has really only stopped buying them, and then bums him off his dad, who lives in our basement (another annoyance). I'm annoyed he's not making a real effort to quit and more annoyed when he smokes with the door open. The smoke still comes inside and it makes everything stink. I'm tired of telling him to close the freaking door when he's smoking!!!!

  • I'm getting irritated reading all these pet peeves because they bug me too, LOL!! 

    Our second DEgg consult today was pretty awesome. I'm happy to report that I didn't cry once today! We felt much more comfortable at this clinic, and are mostly confident that this will be the better choice for us. But I admit that I'm still not ready to take the plunge yet. I'm getting there, but I'm having a really hard time moving on. 

    The match coordinator was probably the most helpful out of anyone I've spoken to... she said, no one but you will be able to tell when and if you're ready to move on. For her, it was a sudden realization that she was ready to move on, and that's something you can't rush. I think we need to do a few more cycles on our own or an IUI or two just to give my eggs one last try. In my head, logically speaking, I believe that we'll be heading for DE. 

    But our last IVF cycle, I honestly thought it was going to work, and I didn't let myself think about what would come next if it failed. I think I need to try a few more cycles with the thought that "this is our last shot with my eggs" in order to come to a peaceful place with all of this. We stopped by the library on the way home, and I checked out a few books about egg donation. I really do see myself coming around, but I feel like I owe it to myself and my eggs to give them a final chance.
    TTC since March 2012
    Dx: Unexplained IF, Arcuate Uterus, Minimal Endometriosis, Poor Embryo Quality
    Tx History: 1 Injects+TI, 5 IUIs, 3 IVFs, 1 FET = all BFN and full of heartbreak
    Plan: Waiting to see if our potential donor is a match for DE IVF #1

    Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.

    Transfer is 5/28... Fx transfer goes smoothly with my RE doing it
    (I swear, he is the most skilled Dr I've ever had) and having this stitch in place... And the extra Valium I requested!

    Qotw - Bad tippers!! My husband and I definitely over tip, but seriously people, stop being so damn cheap!!!
    If you are tipping, you have just received a service (out for dinner, even pizza delivery) and these people get paid horribly and rely on their tips!!

    Me (32) DOR, elevated NK Cells/ 2 copies of MTHFR mutation/ MH (35) azoo/high DFI   (TTC#1 since 2009)

    IVFs#1-4: (4/10-2/12) all BFN

    FET 5/14: 1 day 5 hatching blast transferred...another BFFN

    Repeat SHG 6/14-normal / Endometrial Receptivity Array biopsy 7/14-Receptive Uterus

    New RE, additional testing reveals elevated NK Cells

    FET of 1 day 5 blast (RE recommends transferring 1 due to elevated NK cells) with lovenox, steroids & intralipids in October

    It's great to catch up with everyone. Huge hugs to those who need them, and best wishes for the upcoming transfers! Just want you to know I'm keeping up on you and think of you often.

    Update: Not a lot of news here. Just plugging along. Everyone's doing well.

    QOTW: Words that aren't words - ginormous, etc. Those bug me. And when my husband answers my questions with "yes and no" - it's one or the other!

    IVF#2 March 2010 - Poor response/cancelled

    2nd US today showed baby measuring at 9w and with a heartbeat of 171, but I am 8w5d. Est due date is 12/19. We have another US with RE clinic in 2 weeks, 5/28. Also seeing our obgyn on 5/27. If all goes well on 5/28 scan we will graduate from RE office. My husband thinks that baby is a boy because of the high heartbeat, only time will tell.

    Tardiness is my #1 pet peeve!!!!
  • Thank you for adding me to the check-in!  Currently I am STILL waiting for the agency to respond back to my application.  I am going to reach out to another agency next week if I can't get a reply by then. I am still feeling really excited about going through the process and can't wait to start.

    My biggest pet peeve is people who Facebook selfies all the time.  I like seeing an occasional one here and there, but I have someone I had to unsubscribe to because she posted them all day long.  But maybe I am just jealous that I never have time to just sit around and do that :)
  • Wanting to wish all the ladies with up & coming Transfers the Best of Luck & lots of Baby Dust <:-P

    Sending out lots of Big Hugs to everyone who needs them >:D<

    Big Welcome to all the New Ladies!!!

    I get on most the time on my phone so its hard to comment on each person or I would so do so :)

    AFM: The ED is taking way longer to stim then they thought, so transfer now been pushed back again (3x) she has a US Thursday so I hope that she looks ready then, got everything crossed [-O< all I can do is be packed & ready & wait...

  • Hi guys! I'm back now properly I think. My father-in-law died two and a half weeks ago, and Laire kind of had a bit of a mental breakdown, but she's actually started therapy, and everything seems to have went back to normal really.

    Check-In: It's all go here! Laire and @Astrabacus are both on birth control, and I went for an ultrasound yesterday to make sure everything is still okay, and it is.

    QOTW: People who go out for something to eat and are dissatisfied with the food (it's not what they ordered, it's cold or whatever) and go on and on about it, but don't send it back. Like, either send it back or shut up.
  • Today is 9dp6dt and BFN on a FRER. Beta is Monday, but I am already calling this cycle a bust. I am sending in my paperwork for Dr. KK and will be on a treatment break until we see her and get our test results back, so probably late fall. I think we'll probably give donor embryos another try, but I have also been looking at RBA's frozen egg guarantee program. We would probably do a double donor cycle, since DH has slight MFI issues as well. There program is expensive, but it would be worth every penny if it brings us our take home baby.
