TTC After a Loss

*~*~ IF Check In*~*~ June 28th

This is the weekly check-in for TTCALers who are also dealing with infertility. If you'd like to join us please feel free to intro with your diagnosis and history. We've had a few extra challenges thrown at us, ladies. Come here for snuggles from people who get what you're dealing with.

Fill us in, along with any other updates or vents you need to get out, TTCAL or NonTTCAL related.

Make sure to message me as soon as you get your BFP so we can congratulate you here, I don't go over to PGAL often so I will probably miss it.

 

If you’ve been removed and want to join back in, or are new and want to come in, just post here and I’ll add you to next week’s check in!

    July '14 - Letrozole, Trigger and IUI - BFN

  • @MBJune‌ FX that AF shows up soon!!

    @O2girl‌ I'm so sorry about your slowly dropping betas. I'm sending your ute some encouraging vibes! (Hugs)!!!!

    @kflynn81‌ thanks for the check in!!

    AFM:

    We're leaving in a few hours for our vacation. I am really looking forward to a week of relaxation by the lake!!

    I'm 9dpo/dpiui and plan on testing on Friday at 14dpo. I've been feeling so positive about this cycle but now that I'm so close to testing I'm getting sad for no reason. All of the work that goes into these medicated cycles is exhausting. The first half is exciting waiting to see how your body responds and planning the IUI, but for me the 2WW is just sad. I'm trying not to be too negative just yet but I know I'm going to be really upset if I see another BFN. I would wait to test until my betas (7/7), but I want to stop my progesterone so AF can come. We'll do one more IUI before moving to IVF.

    No news yet on my doctorate program but I am assuming I'll hear in the next week or two.

    ((Hugs)) to everyone who needs them this week!!!

  • Hi ladies and thanks for the check in @kflynn81.
    This is just a quick post and run for me. We leave for vacation this Wednesday. I haven't been around much because I just really need a break from this place, but I did want to let you all know that I'm thinking of you
    AF is most likely right around the corner and we'll be taking off next month as well, considering that we'd be gone for 10 days and that's too big of a gap to miss for monitoring

    Take care, ladies!

    4 Losses (2003, 2008, Apr 2012, & Oct 2012)
    All RPL and IF testing with multiple REs = normal

    5 IUIs = BFN

    All AL are welcome

    @O2girl-Glad your beta dropped and hope AF shows soon.
    @Frenchreachermama- Have fun on vacation. Sorry your are having a rough time in the 2ww. My fx are crossed for you!
    @Rachaeligh-Sorry that AF is coming. It's always good that you are taking a break if you need it. Enjoy your vacation!

    I am still in the 2ww, although I can only guess how many DPO since I didn't temp.  I do know that I O'd because I triggered last Wednesday. AF should be in here for the 4th of July.

    QOTW- Kflynn81- I go to a place like that.  We haven't been since before we moved, but the food is always amazing. I am hoping to go back there next week. Other then going to Let's Dish I can't think of anything to save time.

    I didn't hold out on the pee sticks.  Plus I started temping to see where they were at.  I pretty much called it a BFN on Wednesday.  Started spotting yesterday so AF should be here today.  I had a break down last night.  We are going to shoot for IVF in mid-late September.  Unless my cycles run ahead of schedule then we will do it in late August (due to a trip in September).  I'll be calling to doctor to get all our paperwork done, decisions made, and the rest of out IVF testing done.

    QOTW:  I've done the freezer meal thing & I love it!

  • Hi ladies! Thanks for the check in @kflynn81 I hope you are doing well.

    I broke down and POAS this morning only 5dpt so I know it's too early - stark negative. I'm going to try to hold our until beta (Thursday). Seeing the bfn really hurts. I'm going back to beta or bust mode.

    Sorry for the post and run - I'll be back. ((Hugs)) to those that need them. Xo

  • SHG and cycle review tomorrow.  I should cycle with next AF (or however it works).  I should know everything after tomorrow's appt.  It's hard to look up protocols online and really know where everything falls; I need my tentative dates.

  • My oh my oh my.... me and the Lupron are not meshing well together these days. Its making me insane, and I say that with all seriousness. I was on Lupron last year and don't remember it being this bad, maybe I blocked it out, LOL. A brief synopsis of my cray cray... I bawled because I killed a moth and then yesterday after my freezer meal workshop I somehow "forgot" I was still unloading the cooler and left three bags in the hot garage to rot. AAAAAND.... I left the door to the house open so the basement smelled like rancid meat when DH got home from work at 3am, LOL


    Other than that, things are going well!!!  AF actually showed, I'm on the Estrace and they think FET will be July 18th :)

  • Hi girls! Sorry I missed check in last week. I'm mobile this week due to a last minute trip back to NJ because my FIL had emergency surgery last night. Huge hugs to all who need them. FX super hard for everyone in the 2WW.

    AFM, I'm 9dpiui. I started Crinone on Friday. My trigger seems like it's officially gone. I'll hold off til Tuesday to test again, but I'm not feeling overly optimistic. I'll be interested in talking to my doc after this cycle to see what his thoughts are after observing my natural cycle.

    ~There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world~
    New RE June 2014. RPL b/w - negative. SIS looking for uterine/cervical abnormalities & Asherman's 6/10/14 - ALL CLEAR!

  • Hi, y'all! Thanks for the check in @kflynn81, I'm sorry the Lupron was so bad for you this time around. 

    AFM: I am nervous about our appointment on Wednesday. I am in the middle of my 2ww b/c my doc said we could keep trying, even though he has zero confidence. H will get his SA while he is down there and I will get all my lab work back. I am nervous about some of the numbers, but hopefully we can get a good plan. At least Lefty is open, so that still puts us on target for IUI. I think, if all goes well at this appointment, we will our first medicated cycle after AF shows. 

    Sorry for the post and run, ladies. I just got  back into town from the beach and I am beyond exhausted. I will be back tomorrow to offer my support. ((Hugs)) y'all.

  • Hey ladies, sorry to post and run. Thanks for the check-in, @kflynn81. Sorry I've been absent on the board, it's been rough lately. We're not really TTCAL until we can afford to do IUI, and that's probably going to be a while. So no updates for me really.
    QOTW: I love crockpot cooking whenever possible, and meal planning in advance to incorporate leftovers into the mix. I'm working and going to school full-time so I try to do everything as efficiently as possible.

    Hello ladies,
    I'm hoping I can join your check-in. I'm a regular on December Angels and the AMA check-ins, but would like the additional support and knowledge from all of you.  I have been TTC#1 for 2 years with RE assistance. I've finally decided to can my current RE and have met with a new doctor to pursue IVF with PGD. My consult was on Friday. I feel good knowing that I have a plan. I feel badly b/c the odds are against me at my age (41). This cycle we'll try on our own; next cycle I'll do b/w and start Estrace on CD19.
    I look forward to getting to know all of you. Happy 4th of July week!

  • ok, I'm not as crazy today, so I'll try to stop in here while I'm still a normal person.  :)

    @O2girl  14 is closer!  FX for 0 soon.  ((hugs))

    @MBJune  I hope you get AF soon so that you can move on to next steps.

    @Frenchteachermama I am right there with you mama.  My beta is Thursday and I am nothing but sad this time around, convinced it did not work.  I will have hope for you and you can have hope for me.  I have everything crossed for you.  xo

    @Rachaeleigh  I'm sorry about AF.  Have so much fun on vacation!

    @Rocks526  I hope you are wrong and this is your month.  FX and hugs to you.

    @ky29  I'm sorry about your breakdown.  I said this to you on the Infertility boards, but I'll say it again - feel free to ask any questions about IVF.  Truly, it's not that bad - you can do it.  And in some ways, it will feel good to be taking steps with "the big guns" sort to speak.  Rooting so hard for you.

    @Lundlebean  GL today at your SHG

    @kflynn81  Oh yeah - I forgot about the forgetfulness too.  I hate lupron.  Hands down the worst meds of the bunch (cover your eyes @ky29)  :)  My symptoms always got better when I started taking estrace, so hopefully yours will too as your estrogen builds back up.  July 18th sounds like a lovely day for a transfer.  Absolutely everything crossed for you friend.  xo

    @beckynsean11  Everything crossed for you!  

    @megrae12  I'm sorry you don't have much hope - I totally get it.  I will wish you GL at your doctor's appt, but I'm also secretly hoping that lefty does its job and you get a last minute miracle this month.  My only BFP actually came the very last cycle before we were scheduled to move on to IVF.  ((hugs)) to you

    @natsfan84  Good to see you.  Hope you're hangin in.

    @TVLily  Yay for your first IUI!  Everything crossed for you.

    @Alicia_R1  Was your box of meds completely huge and overwhelming? I took a picture of all of mine laid out on the counter and was so tempted to post a picture on FB telling everyone that I am about to pump my body full of all this in order to have a chance at having a baby.  I came to my senses in the last minute.   Very best of luck to you.

    I'm feeling ok today.  I know that it's still possible that this FET may have worked but I also know that statistically speaking it probably didn't.  And I'm a little nervous about what's going to happen to my mental stability should that be the case.  I know I'll get through it, but I am just about at the end of my road here.  Trying not to thing too hard until I have to.

    Big hugs to all of you.  Thanks for always listening to me! xo

  • Hey guys.

    IUI would have been Saturday but I only had one egg and we were using frozen sperm. We decided to do TI instead (timing was better and would yield more sperm than the sad frozen sperm. 

    Our doc has rec'd the IVF route so we're going to start getting ready for that but we will probably do one or two more IUIs (our doc said they don't recommend doing more than 5) so we'll probably do our five and move on.

    @Lesliem0901‌ fx for you this cycle as you try on your own. I'm glad you have a plan moving forward.
    @kaynix21‌ sorry you had only one folly but I am keeping everything crossed for you.

    So the ASA for our IUI yesterday only had a 3 million count, we did bd before my monitoring appt since I was thinking IUI would've been today and not yesterday do maybe that factors in the count a bit. But the RE said if this doesn't work we will have to discuss our future options which I'm not sure means one more IUI or moving to IVF so that was a bummer. I have been having a lot of cramping since last night, which I also had with my SHG so hopefully it goes away soon!
