Re: *Third-Party Reproduction Informal Check-in* Nov 10

  • Sorry for the informal check-in, girls. I'm in full on freak out mode. I seriously cannot relax, having some anxiety attacks and am super emotional. Damn hormones and stress!!!

    ER is tomorrow. I am so surprised by how badly I'm taking this... I thought it would be easier because I shouldn't have to worry about my egg crapping out. Instead, I find myself crying at every little thing. And having panic attacks. I think I'll feel better once we get the final report on Sunday.

    QOTW: I need help here... Which is why I asked! I failed miserably today and spent the whole day in panic mode. What is wrong with me??

  • @Runcc37 BREATHE!!!   The drugs are certainly adding to your hormonal emotions and that is ok, but try to remain calm. Not sure if you every practice Yoga, but perhaps now would be a good time to start. GL with ER.

    We find out in 2 days if our surrogate is positive. I am trying hard to not to be too anxious as well.  Thankfully my job keeps me super busy.

  • RunCC37 -Good luck with the retrieval tomorrow!  I'm sorry you're feeling anxious, hopefully it will pass soon.

    IRR-Good luck on a positive test!

    I had my hysteroscopy today and everything is looking good.  I will start letrozole (sp?) on day 3 of my next AF. I'm not sure when my transfer will be, but it's looking like sometime in December.

    I like to watch baseball or reality tv to relax.

    I hope you all have a great week.

  • GL! @RunCC37‌! Accupuncture really helped me relax, although it did nothing for me fertility wise. AF came last week and I started on delestrogen injections. We are planning a transfer of two blasts sometime during the week of Thanksgiving. I'll als do intralipids this time, and see if this does anything to help.

    AF was supposed to start today but nothing so far...not trying to get my hopes up. Beta is Wednesday if AF doesn't start by then

    When I get worked up I will usually go clean something or I like to get a magazine and sit in the living room alone and read

  • Thanks for the tips, girls. @lincoln79‌ - I do C+B but yesterday I was in a panic mode and completely unreachable by any of my normal methods of calming down. I don't know what is wrong with me!!! I am so badly scarred by my past IVF cycles. Truly. When the doctor called on Sunday to tell me our donor was triggering, my heart dropped. I thought he was calling to tell me it was over. I think it all stems back to December 9th last year... The day that was supposed to be our transfer for IVF #2, but instead we learned that all of our embryos had stopped growing (only two made it to two cells)... I still can't think about it without crying. And it's totally fucking with my head right now during this cycle. I think that day is the reason why I am freaking out so hard right now... I need to get it out of my head and focus on how different this time is compared to the past. Deep breaths.

    Good luck to everyone else! And thank you for the support!

  • Good luck to all of you this week!! I'm sure positive and exciting things are coming your way!
    As for me, September I had too many follicles, October I got BFN and I found out yesterday that I have two cysts and the estrogen is too high to proceed this month :( - so I am just focusing on getting house organized and going to start Christmas shopping. Just trying to stay busy.

    Qotw: I have a good cry, try to focus on something else or put my head in a book and get carried away to another place.
  • @Runcc37 - For me, I felt like I was suffering from something akin to PTSD after several losses and a cancelled cycle. 
    I used this website for some coping strategies. HTH! Hugs!

  • @RunCC37‌ - so sorry you're so stressed!! I absolutely have some form of PTSD from all of our cycles. It's awful. I'm constantly waiting for something to go horribly wrong and I can't be excited for any of it anymore; it's just torture to go through over and over again. All I can say is that I have a lot of hope for you on this cycle- >:D<

    @refeek1‌ & @chicagobride_07‌ - wishing you all of the best on your upcoming transfers!!

    Not too much going on here. My appt with Dr KK was moved up to the beginning of january, which might not work. If I get the job that I've been interviewing for, I would start the 1st week of January and could not realistically ask for time off until maybe March at the earliest.

    So while I'm anxious for this appt, we have decided the earliest we could cycle again would be May; for both financial reasons and possibly starting a new job and being able to request time off for transfer. So it might not be a big deal if we need to postpone.

    I take bubble baths, cuddle with my kitty, cook and watch the Food Network to unwind.

  • @RunCC37‌ - IF PTSD is getting the best of you. ((Huge hugs)) I know you are going to find success this cycle!
    @refeek1‌ & @chicagobride_07‌ - wishing you all of the best on your upcoming transfers!!
    @Thespis7- ((Hugs)) I'm so sorry about your BFN!!
    @TRexsMum- I hope your meeting with the OB goes well!

    QOTW: I've been listening to mp3's of mindful meditations. I actually find it more helpful than the C&B guided imagery. It is not specific for IF, but I find it helps me with my anxiety.

    AFM: Last week I was so hopeful, Saturday went to shit. My embryo did not look good at all, an early blastocyst, graded a C. My WTF appointment went well. We really didn't discussed what went wrong. Frankly don’t care what went wrong, because it will not change my decision to move away from doing a cycle using out OE or OS. We discussed what our best chance of success would be. She was very clear that she is concerned for a shared DE cycle because we only get half the eggs even with the use of donor sperm that will decrease our change for success, but we would have a slightly better chance than donor embryo. She gave us a 65% chance of success for donor embryo with the embryos they have set aside for us as they were created from donor eggs, great quality, and frozen via verification. She actually thinks that traditional Donor egg cycle using donor sperm will give us the greatest changes for success, 75%. I explained that the cost for a traditional donor egg cycle using donor sperm is our biggest obstacle for this route. My RE proposed a discounted cycle for a traditional DE cycle using donor sperm since I am a returning patient. This is why I like this clinic. They are incredibly generous and want us to have the success as much as we want it for ourselves.

    DH and I had a discussion our options last night about our plans moving forward. He likes the idea of Donor Embryos, for a few reasons, #1 cost, #2 the embryos are already blastocysts so we do not have to worry about the possibility of poor quality embryos. I’m leaning toward DE/DS, because I cannot bear the thought of another failed cycle, and that 10% difference in success, gives me some comfort. I’m not concerned about getting poor quality embryos if both DE and DS are proven donors. We have a lot to think about and more discussion to get on the same page.

  • Hi Girls, another crazy day over here. I'm going to post & run, but will be back later to scroll up & read your updates. I hope everyone is doing well. Sending hugs to those who need one, and love/strength/luck to anyone in need!!!

    Our donor seems to have hooked us up today at our ER! 19 eggs! DH's sperm sample looked great (56million, 99%motility). Because I'm paranoid and need to sleep at night, we decided to attempt fertilization with conventional IVF with 9 eggs, and ICSI with the remaining 10 eggs. Our fert report should come bright and early tomorrow morning. FX for good news!

    Thank you for your support every day, but especially today/this week. I damn near lost my mind yesterday/this morning. Actually... I think it was gone for a while, but it's back now :) I'm feeling optimistic and ready to go pass out! I'm exhausted!!

  • ***XP: TPR, IFV, BTDT, IF Tiny Turkeys***

    Day 1 Fert Report is in: 19R, 17M, 17F

    Our transfer will be on SUNDAY.

    It seems that our donor has hooked us up... I am in total disbelief! After all we've been through, I have just been waiting for the other shoe to drop. We're feeling optimistic, and praying that we don't get any surprise phone calls from our clinic between now & Sunday. 

    I can't believe this is really happening! OMGGGGGGGGG!!!

  • Check in: We had a false labor incident yesterday...our surrogate called with contractions about 4 minutes apart, so we drove up to where she is (about 2 hours away) and unfortunately she was not actually in labor. DH and I got so excited and thought we'd be bringing our baby home this week...oh well. She's still having contractions but not progressing at all. The doctor still thinks she'll make it to our induction date next Friday. 
    QOTW: a glass of wine and a nice hot bath in our whirlpool tub always does the trick to relax! A good run is great too 

    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?!

  • @BeckyP005 - wonderful.  I am sort of flipping out a bit if we end up with twins and yet your betas are similar to our surrogate, so I guess the U/S on 12/3 will be the determining factor and for now I won't worry too much about it.
