QOTW: Favorite Thanksgiving dish?
TTC, without meds, hoping for a wonderful "surprise!"
Jessylane8- 10/15-Cycle #5 but who is counting?
MrsAmyDylan-10/22- We had a good consult. It looks like we will do the clomid challenge + IUI in December (which will take care of all our pre-cycle testing. IVF in January, assuming the IUI doesn't work. .
Lynnyloo- We are ready to start actively trying, haven't really pressed DH on assisted cycles yet. I started my cycle back in January and think it regulated around March. So it's been about 7 months of not trying to prevent. To conceive DD it took 26 cycles (2 failed IUIs, followed by surprise BFP). I'll be 35 in a few months and not really sure how long we'll try on our own. Original diagnosis was unexplained with DH having good numbers, but poor morph. I'm currently on CD32, so just waiting for my period to show up.
Okitty-10/1-SAIF Lurker timidly stepping forward!: DH and I are somewhat trying for #2. DS is only 2 mos old today, and while I'm breastfeeding I realize our chances are low (no AF yet) but we aren't preventing. DS took 5 years and was a surprise during our adoption wait. We hope to be lucky and have an unmedicated BFP as we aren't up for any interventions. If not, we'll revisit our adoption plan when DS is 18 mos (per our agency's rule).
Richzep-10/22- In the middle of probably my final cycle before FET #1. We moved up our timeline (because I'm impatient). But we're excited.
TTC, with treatments
Ann679-I had my retrieval yesterday. I'm
completely shocked. They got 8 eggs and 6 of them fertilized.
That's more than my first 2 cycles combined. Now I'm hoping for
some good growth.
Chiwifey-10/22- Just met with Dr. Sch. He said we're looking at around 11 eggs maybe a few more. ER will be sun or mon. He was pleased with our cycle so far and said about half of the mature eggs would be blasts and about half of those normal after CCS testing. He was hopeful for us which was encouraging. Feeling hopeful myself
Djma81-U/S and labs all good....lining at 9mm on Tuesday. Scheduled for transfer Monday!! Eekkk. Transferring two again this time
EmAzeem-I would love to be added! We'll be doing ivf #2 as soon as AF arrives. Then I'll go in for b/w on days 1-3 and a saline u/s days 5-11.
emwaiting – 6/18We are currently off all meds and just seeing what will happen on our own. Praying for that little miracle to happen. You know be one of those that can say "it will happen when you quit trying!" ha I will be 6 wks tomorrow from my last period so that is frustrating that it won't come on it's own. If it isn't here in another week then they will do a blood test to make sure I'm not prego and then do the meds to start my period. Kinda hard to have that miracle without my period or ovulating. We had to do IVF to get our DS so we are thinking we will have to go down that road again so time to save $$ again!
fullfhope –10/22-had second scan today with my favorite Dr and she was so positive and upbeat, we saw a strong heartbeat and while are still measuring behind she said is less than a week behind and she thinks this is ok. I have now graduated to OB. Next appointment is Nov. 3. Thank you ladies for your concern, much appreciated.
itsmevkb -8/20- We did the transfer last Monday of our one little frosty and everything went smoothly. Yesterday I tested and got a positive. I'm literally shaking typing that out. I'm scared. Scared of something going wrong, scared of having a crappy beta on Wednesday, scared of where in the world we're fitting another baby into our house, scared of just everything both good and bad.
JBDamonm-10/22-My FET is scheduled for 11/14. I have a ways to go but I am actually feeling excited. I'm happy it's a longer cycle - I feel like I needed this extra time to mentally prepare - and enjoy things like sushi. Now I just have to hope that nothing goes wrong btwn now and then.
Julie21613-10/22-I'm still plugging along... things are progressing very slowly. Going back tomorrow for u/s & b/w. Had 3 measurable follies on Monday. Hoping they have a big growth spurt.
Kaf7-10/22- I travel for my SIS on Monday. Worked out well since I don't work that day. Still not sure how I will manage taking all of feb off. I haven't started my DHEA yet. This has been a wicked period with diarrhea and bad persistent acne so I have been holding off...
KDR19179-7/16 I haven't been on the bump in awhile because I have been busy with the twins and work, but we are in the process of going back for our single frozen embryo. We don't tell many people IRL when we are going through IVF cycles, so I would love to talk about it somewhere! CD day 1 was July 10, I saw the RE on Monday. I'm taking estradiol 2mg 3x daily. I go back on 7/21 for an ultrasound and blood draw. The embryo transfer is scheduled for 7/28. We only have 1 embryo left and it has about a 65% chance of surviving thaw. If it survives thaw, it has a 27-30% chance of pregnancy. I love swimming, but don't get to do it much. I never thought I would want a pool until we had kids. If we had a pool, I think I would swim every day in the Summer!
mnj05 – 10/22-I have turned 3 tests positive!! My beta is Friday.
MoFree –10/22- ET should be some time between Nov 8 and 11 in what seems like the never ending cycle.
Pam MG – 10/1-Still hanging out
Phishgirl29- 10/22-Confirmed chemical pregnancy. Sucks. I just started bleeding yesterday so I'm CD2 now. We are taking this cycle off while we decide what our next step is. I'm thinking of a follistim IUI cycle next, maybe 2 if I have enough leftover drugs before we try our final embryo in our last FET in February.
Pinkmickey24-9/17 Cycle 3 is underway. Going to sit down and chat with DH about when we should return to the RE. I want to cycle August/September again because a May/June baby if all works out is much nicer on a teacher's schedule, but I would be grateful for a baby at anytime in the year.
Run20K-10/1- My next FET is scheduled for 11/18
STL34-10/22-I had my first of two baselines this morning. Everything looked good on the ultrasound except my AFC was lower. I haven't heard my E2 results, yet. I have another ultrasound scheduled for October 31 just to make sure nothing funky happens between now and then since I am only on ganirelix. If that goes well, I will start stims on November 3!!
trigirl79 – 10/22-So we decided to go ahead with IVF...a huge blow to me but I'm super hopeful. AF arrived Sunday, started BCP Monday. Plan is BCP x 19 days, then monitoring, starting meds around the 11th with ER somewhere between Nov 22 and 24 and transfer between Nov 25 and 29. Which means it could happen on Thanksgiving.
Huge hugs and baby dust!
WadzFaithJulie21613 They increased my folistim from 225 to
I go back tomorrow for them to check again. Just happily plugging along.
ON A BREAK, hoping to get back in the game soon
Efhoping2010-10/15-Will likely find out this week or next if new insurance has any coverage for IVF/ICSI #4, big money no whammy...
Bellalou – 10/15 Made my appt for 12-4 to discuss what my plan will be. I know I'm going to need polyps & probably fluid removed. Hoping to do all this while my deductible is met!
