Trouble TTC

-:- 3T Weekly Check-In -:-

Welcome to the weekly check-in! 

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 four 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?

If you are 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.


QOTW: Where is your favorite place to shop for clothes?

    @ky29, good luck! And I love Express. I have so many clothes from them.

    @ky29‌ love the phrase oodles of embryos! Fx for you, sounds like you're well on the way! I just started the stims last night!! Hoping for lots of embies but with my low AMH I'd be doing very well to get 10 or more. I'm on 300 gonal, so,pretty high dose, trying to get as much as I can

    Official diagnosis: Unexplained IF. I am 32. I have low ovarian reserve (low AMH), and poor egg quality. I've also been diagnosed with mild glandular developmental arrest (lining problems, detected with EFT).

    We are using open ID donor sperm. IUIs #1-7=BFN. IVF September 2014 antagonist protocol, 8R,5M,3F, 5 day transfer of 1 morula = BFN. IVF#2 planned for January 2015 (antagonist protocol + HGH).

    Benched while preparing for surgery. Finally have a surgery date - Nov 5th! I got my 1st shot of Lupron last Thu. So far I've had some headache here and there but overall the side effects haven't been terrible. I'm bummed that I'll be benched til at least January ... but hanging in there and grateful to have a new surgery plan that I'm more comfortable with.

    QOTW: I love Anthropologie, Banana Republic and Macy's
    **Formerly EastBayBride508**

    Me 34   Him 33

    Me - Left salpingo-oophorectomy at 19 due to large cyst/torsion  and 2 large uterine fibroids found at age 30
    Him - Borderline low sperm count (correcting through Fertility Blend supplement)

    Married 8/20/2011
    TTC #1 since Jan 2013
    First appointment with RE 10/2013.  
    April 2014 - Clomid 100mg CD3-7.  HCG shot CD10 IUI #1 done on 4/12/14 (CD12) ....BFN
    May 2014 - Break cycle to repeat saline sonogram and re-group.  Travel to Kauai 5/7-5/12 (Yay!!)
    June 2014 - Clomid 150mg CD4-8.  HCG shot CD14.  IUI#2 done on 6/9 and 6/10 (CD15-16) w/ Prometrium suppositories during TWW .... BFN
    July 2014 - Clomid 150mg CD3-7.  Ultrasound CD12 - 4 mature follies! HCG trigger shot CD12 AM.  IUI#3 on CD13 w/ Prometrium suppositories during TWW ....BFN
    July 2014 - Repeat ultrasound done to measure size of fibroid - 8x9cm (the size of a grapefruit!) Surgery referral made.
    August 2014 - MRI done which revealed 2 fibroids: a 13x15cm fibroid as well as an 8x7cm one.  Super freak out mode over surgery plan.  OB-GYN/surgeon said surgery would most likely have to be a laparotomy (open abdominal surgery)
    August 2014 - After a 2nd opinion, plan to take Lupron x 2 months to shrink fibroids then laparoscopic/robotic myomectomy.  Surgery date is set for Nov 21st!  
    November 2014 - Robotic myomectomy done (2 large fibroids removed, mild endo found).  Benched x 3 months

    Only 2 days into my 2WW on our last IUI. Have already discussed with MD moving on to IVF, but will have our official consult if this cycle is BFN.

    Hi ladies
    I am Oing around now. I haven't been temping the last 2 months because I've been trying to de-stress. I did the last couple days because I wanted to catch the upswing but I can't tell now if I have or not. Friday I had tons of EWCM (second month with EW-- in the last it's just been watery) and we BD Friday night, skipped Saturday (I always seem to skip that one day every single month!) and BD yesterday morning with the OPK++. I havnt had O pains this month (every month is so different). I guess we will BD today too and tomorrow. A lot of BDing!

    Thinking about envisioning clearing the endo from my tubes. I am going to call my RE ad ask about how hard it is to schedule the lap surgery in November. He said he does it Thursdays so you can be back to work Monday. My work schedule is not nailed down for November yet. I run corporate events so the fall is only starting to fill in. I have a very busy October and early December.

    As for shopping I like ESPRIT but they closed all the US stores dammit. I shopped there in Paris in Feb and very thing I bought gets compliments. Otherwise I have a high quality problem. Love Frye boots ... Drool... I get jeans at Joes jeans. I also like camping and went to Freeport Maine this month and got the most awesome stuff at Horny Toad. Fleece lined sweatshirt! Macys is good too for the racks If I'm in the mood.

    This board means so much to me. Thanks all!
    TTC#1 since Aug 2013, I'm 37, DH 41.  
    Maya Arvigo Abdominal massage (daily self care), plus TTC meditations.
    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!) 
    Seriously considering IVF in March/April

    Hi!!  First good luck to all the ladies in the TWW and ((hugs)) to anyone who is having a rough IF week.

    I am 2/3 days past IUI's.  I go in tomorrow for progesterone check and then I wait.  I stopped by the dollar store to grab some cheapie tests so I can test out my trigger, but  I really have zero expectations for this cycle.  DH has great numbers, but the freezing and washing seriously cut those numbers down so I guess we'll see.  DH is very hopeful, he thinks even frozen his guys can "get the job done".  He makes me smile :)

    Unfortunately moving on to IUI #5. I had a hard time last week, I'm just so tired of this!! I wish we could do ivf now but hopefully insurance will cover it early next year. Probably taking a true break after this one.

    Qotw: old navy, h & m, and target!

    Edit: Forgot to mention my first round of Gonal F last month left me with a small cyst, apparently not big enough to disrupt the next cycle... I'm hoping it disappears and doesn't get larger with more stims! Good luck to everyone this week!

    Currently at 11dpiui, got a BFN this AM which was a bummer. Planning on testing again tomorrow to be sure.

    Question for you ladies: my beta is scheduled for Thursday, if I get a BFN again tomorrow I'm going to call my RE to add a consult for next steps. Would it be safe to assume I can stop the Crinone? I'm going to ask my RE as well but I don't want to prolong my period any more if it's coming anyways!

    QOTW: @Rcvb22‌ we are shopping twins! I love Zara and H&M and get tons of my clothes there!

    Who the heck knows whats going on with my cycle..... I am on CD19 FF says 3DPO which I dont believe since CD15 I had only an 11mm and 13mm follie so unless them follies had miracle grow overnight then its gotta be wrong. Anyway....

    I am on cd 5 of a natural cycle. I have to admit I am kind of enjoying these non medicated cycles. My skin is finally back to normal and I had very few leading cramps leading up to AF compared to what I had on my iui cycles. I am also way less stressed even with planning for ivf.

     We received our estimated cost for IVF #1, and it is better than I thought it would be :). I also emailed the ivf nurse last week letting her know what day ( October 16th) I plan on starting bcp's. I asked for an idea of how the cycle would go from there and what meds they thought I would be using. They are going to get so sick of me. Lol!

    I like to shop at TJ Maxx and Marshalls. I get a lot of my work clothes at New York & CO. I also like to shop online at The Blue Door Boutique. It's one of my favorites!

    IUI #1 6/28 clomid + ovidrel, post wash count 3 million total sperm= BFN

    Moving on to IUI #2 if all goes well.  Had my first really rough IF week when I received my BFN while on vacation. Trying to be optimistic but not wanting to be heartbroken at the same time.  So thankful for the 3T community.

    QOTW:  I love shopping at NY&C! 

    Started TTC August 2012
    Dxed with unexplained infertility
    Planning on IUI #2 if all goes well (currently CD2)

    Hysteroscopy is scheduled for Friday.  That should check out fine and then RE will submit for IVF-ICSI.  DH had follow-up SA last week.  1.9 million total sperm with 0% morph.  I'm scared.  Every time, DH results are worse.  Urologist found no cause and bloodwork was completely normal.  ICSI appears to be our only hope for ever having children.  I'm not gonna lie, I'm somewhat devastated by all this news but I need to keep it together.  If DH keeps getting worse results, we will need to freeze sperm before he gets to 0.

    GTKY: Premium outlets.  I always get great deals and great clothes there.
