     1 MILLION BONUS POINTS FOR WHOEVER CAN TELL ME WHY IT'S CUTTING OFF THE BOTTOM OF MY CHECK INS!

    I've tried everything I can think of but the BFPs keep getting cut off and it says all that ^^^ 

    Any tech savvy check in-ers that can help me out?

  • Loading the player...
  • IUI#4 was a bust as of 2:45am last night. It's actually the 5th time we've been through this whole IUI process (first time they couldn't insert the catheter) so I'm starting to feel the urge to be done.

    Last night I had a horrifying moment of clarity - DH's next tuition bill + IVF will clear out our savings. I know he's not going to be on board with that but I cannot find it within myself to start emotionally facing having to wait longer than spring break to start IVF. It sucks so, so bad. 

    This also came along with about 2 hours of instant depression, feeling like life is just not worth living and I would rather be dead. Not a fun feeling, but I think it's hormonal because it often hits for a brief time just before AF arrives. :(

    But on the good side, the cramps that woke me up were past within an hour - who knows, perhaps the lap surgery that has rescued me from impossible periods will be the only good to come out of this IF treatment journey, but it does seem worth it at the moment!

    QOTW: Morning person...but it's hard to hit my bedtime of 8-9pm when DH is such a night owl. So typically I drag out of bed at 5:15am wondering about why ____ was so appealing last night. (This time it was another episode of Defiance. Anyone watch this show?)

    QOTW:

    @annaclaire256 Thank you so much for organizing the check-in!

    @juneroses Sorry for the BFN. :( The month off sounds like a good chance to rejuvenate, though! Good luck with your weight loss.

  • Thanks @iPutKetchupOnKetchup‌! Glad it's not just me. I tried to fix it for probably an hour last night, after I had already organized the check in, and I was DONE. (Glad you do the weekly one...I can't imagine how much time that takes) Sucks that it cuts off the BFPs...I think those are so encouraging to see.

  • I am so sorry @bunnyberry! HUGS to you!  Please be kind to yourself.  I certainly understand the depression, but I hope a new day brings some new light to you.

    I'm on CD15 and seemingly not much closer to actually O'ing.  I had my second monitoring appointment yesterday morning, and I finally had 2 follicles in the 10-11mm range, but (of course) they're on my right side so I'm not horribly optimistic about our chances this first cycle.  The biggest one on the left was only 9mm.  I go back Wednesday, but at the rate these puppies are growing (or not growing)...I'm just feeling pretty frustrated.  Wednesday will also be CD17 so even if I my body does decide to cooperate and finally O, I'll be in my 2WW during New Years, which is not cool, but oh well.  So - slow going here.  At this rate I'll be on a 40 day Clomid cycle.

    QOTW - night owl for sure.  I am definitely not a morning person.  I had a facility director one time who used to joke that he knew not to ask me anything too difficult before 10am.  I hate mornings!

  • I am in the TWW.  Honestly, I feel like it's killing me this month.  I feel like the time is passing so slowly and 12/24 seems forever away!  I go today to have my progesterone checked.

    I'm totally an early bird!  I get up at 0400 for work and even on my days off I don't sleep in past 0600.  I'm usually asleep by about 9.  DH is definitely a night owl and he usually goes to bed about midnight or 1.

    @lovegrilledcheese, good luck this week!  Fx for good follies!
    @bunnyberry, I'm so sorry!!  Please take the time to take care of yourself! 
    @juneroses, Sorry for your BFN.  Taking a month off for sanity is essential.  If I get
     a BFN this month, I will be doing the same.  This process is just so wearing!



    BunnyBerry[Deleted User][Deleted User]
  • AnnaClaire256?

    I just finished my 3rd Letrozole/trigger/TI/progesterone cycle, so this cycle we're going to try IUI #1.  I'm on CD4 and going for my baseline at lunchtime.

    QOTW: I'm definitely an early bird. I wake up at 4:15 for work, and so even on the weekends I get up around 7 because my body is in the habit. I love it - the quiet morning walks with my dog, reading the news, seeing the sun rise.

  • @BlueFairy5 woohoo, for the mature follie and good lining!  Fingers crossed for you!

    @BunnyBerry and @BlueFairy5 is Defiance that SyFy show set in what used to be St. Louis?  DH and I watch it too.  Are there new episodes on now?

  • Thanks for starting the thread @annaclaire256

    I’m still hanging out in 2WW land. The first week wasn’t bad but it’s becoming harder to wait. I am trying to keep busy to keep my mind off it.  I ordered a kitchenaid mixer that will arrive tomorrow (something I registered for but didn’t receive for my wedding) so I will most likely be on a baking spree all week.

    My RE’s office told me to test on the 22nd and then come in for a beta if I need to confirm a BFP (I think the lab is technically closed but they are still doing blood testing).  How long do you usually wait to take a POAS test? Should I give it a try this weekend?  Saturday will be 13 DPO and I didn’t trigger.

    QOTW:  I am definitely a night person. I can never fall asleep (especially now that I am off melatonin while we TTC) and I can never wake up in the morning. 

    @juneroses@bunnyberry @goldenlove3 Sorry about the BFNs. Hope the holidays and new year do their job of providing rest and rejuvenation (and wine).   

    @bluefairy5Good luck with IUI#3!!

    Best of luck to everyone in the TWW—cookie baking party in the meantime at my house—all invited! J

  • @annaclaire256 Thank you, your "Pollyanna" response is just what I needed to hear! On the way to work/school this morning, he basically let me know that he believes my lack of hope is what stops us from getting pregnant. It's so frustrating, and I don't know how to be true to myself while helping to support him with what he needs. But your response was the perfect middle ground that I feel comfortable with - gratitude for the opportunities we still have. :)

    @shafwilson I really hope they grow and you can O soon! Yes, MH also seemed intrigued by the alien fights, but don't think he'll watch this one with me. :)

    @goldenlove3 Sorry for your BFN. :( And thank you, I keep deciding I will start talking to a therapist, and then chickening out. I am afraid of exploring my feelings around IF and everything else! But I was thinking how important it would be to have a trusted therapist if something traumatic comes out of this, like IVF failure, or a loss, or DH and I on really different pages in terms of how far to go with treatment. I will tell my sister to make me do it...that tends to be the best long-term insurance that I will do something!! :D

    @amlrunner Congrats on great follies!

    @cupcakecutieRN I am so sorry for how hard this cycle is. :( Hopefully as the Ovidrel wears off you'll feel a little better? Hopefully this will be the last cycle you need!!

    @bluefairy5 Yay for a mature follie and good lining!

    @deelopi9 So glad the shower went well. :)

    @bandm14 Thanks. :) Sorry the progesterone is so icky, but I hope the spotting stays away!

    @hrushka Thanks. I hope that lining does its cushy trilaminar thing!!

  • I'm back! And I'd like to say thank you for everyone's support! the end of my last cycle was by far the worst The and I am so grateful for all of your support it means so much!

    I've started another round of follitsim injections since it worked last month and so today I went in for blood work and u/s to check eggs. Everything is looking good so far! Depending on results of my blood work today I'll be going in again this Thursday for more blood work and u/s and as if now we're looking at doing iui #5 this Saturday.

    QOTW: Def a night owl! I just love sleeping in...Although my sleeping in is about 7:30 or 8 at the latest. ..but I'd rather wake up on my own than to hear my stupid alarm go off at 5:15 A.M. ...I have to be at work at 6:30 M-F ....seriously no can talk to me until after I've had some coffee and been up for about an hour lol

  • Still on the bench and loving the mental break!  Started spotting today mid cycle, so perhaps my little cyst has cleared it's way out of my system?? I could only hope! I just circled back to see how all your ladies were doing.  Hoping for some Christmas miracles for you all!

    As always, a huge thanks to you @AnnaClaire256‌ for doing this check in! You rock! I want to be able to respond to everyone, but dang it's hard! @BunnyBerry‌ I'm sorry you were having a down day :( I understand where you are coming from (as I'm sure most of us do). This crap IF gets so exhausting and frustrating. It sounds like it you have access to, maybe talking to someone would be good. Especially like you said with moving down the IVF path. I can't even imagine. @BlueFairy5‌ yay for IUI #3 being a go! Crossing everything for you! @BandM14‌ I always used to get spotting and the progesterone definitely helped with that! Actually these past 3 months I have been having text book cycles! Perfect 28 days, normal 3-4 day AF, O'ing on day 13/14. FX for you! FX for all those in their 2WW hell. I am also hoping for more amazing Christmas BFP's!! Hugs to those who them right now. It's an awful journey, but I am glad to have this community to share in it. AFM. I did medicated TI that was a bust. Even though I totally knew it didn't work and had not even really thought of it much, it was still hard to get the negative call. It's such a draining journey. @AnnaClaire256‌ you can put me over to taking a break for now. RE wants a WTF appointment . We have to figure out what we are going to do. 4 years is a long time and IVF is not an option for us. We have submitted our application for adoption and had our 'get to know you' home visit. Now we have a pile of paperwork to do and wait to get in for the training. The SW was very sweet and kept saying things like 'when your child comes home' . It was heart wrenching. I am very excited to move forward with this, but am nervous as well. And so we wait. QOTW: Totally not a morning person! Doesn't matter what time I wake up at, I am usually miserable! Lol.

  • @bluefairy5 the nurse who did my first one said not to be alarmed if some liquid came out after, that it's normal for some of the fluid that held the sperm to come out mixed with some CM (but that the swimmers would already be off where they should be going so not to worry!).

  • @AnnaClaire256‌ thank you so much for this check in, it's so amazing to be able to see ladies that are going through the same thing that I am. We aren't telling anyone so it makes it so much harder!

    I have my beta test tomorrow morning and I took a HPT yesterday BFN. I just don't feel like this IUI worked for us. I guess I will find out tomorrow if the exhaustion I feel is due to progesterone and pregnancy OR just the darn progesterone suppositories!

    @BlueFairy5‌ - fingers crossed for you!
      @luchich‌ - I'm so sorry. Hugs. 
    @BunnyBerry‌ - I'm so sorry you are having a hard time. Hugs & chocolate - those days when it all feels hopeless are the worst, especially around the holidays. I love your description of sperm "smelling" an egg - it makes me think of hapless cartoon beagles on the hunt. DH is not going to understand when I start laughing during the deed later this month !
      @mshandlebar‌ - congrats on no cysts!

  • Well, I can almost officially call this cycle a bust, not a BFN bust, an I didn't even ovulate bust.  I had my CD17 appointment this morning and found out my E2 levels actually dropped between me CD11 and 14 appointments.  Won't have today's results for a few hours yet, but all the follicles I had around or over 10mm last time shrunk.  So, yeah, pretty safe to say this one is cancelled, but I won't get the official call until my labs come back.  I'm not sure I've ever been more discouraged, to be honest.  I'm not sure if it's true, but I think I'd feel differently if we at least had a shot, but to not even O...this just sucks.  Since we were 100% OOP for this cycle that makes it feel that much worse. 

    All I want to do it crawl into bed, eat chocolate, drink wine and watch Netflix.  Instead, I'm at work.  Well, at least now I should be able to drink myself into oblivion on New Years since there will be no 2WW for me.

    Ok, pity party over, sorry.

  • @shafwilson -I am so sorry. It is completely understandable to be discouraged and upset. Like Blue said, there still might be hope. Until then chocolates and wine while curled up in bed is a perfectly acceptable way to spend Wednesday morning.

    On an unrelated note, well I am definitly on the drugs again. I almost started crying when I printed a letter upside down on letter head, and I actually threw it across the room, when I did it a second time (being an uncrumpled piece of paper, it didn't inflict any damage and was a pretty anticlimactic tantrum). Why am I so crazy?

  • IUI 2 was a bust. So now we are self benching this cycle so we can enjoy the holidays without worrying about timing. I guess the silver lining is that I can now enjoy Christmas with some champagne and maybe a martini or two.

  • @Shauntee very sorry for the BFN

    Thank so much for the support @BlueFairy5 @lindy04aggie @mshandlebar @BandM14!  Unfortunately, I just got the call that they're cancelling this cycle and starting me on Provera.  My E2 levels kept dropping, my lining stayed thing (around 4mm) and the follicles didn't grow/shrunk.  I'm told we'll try Letrozole next cycle since my lining stayed so thin.  I think I'll have a bottle of wine tonight.

  • Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum so I'm a little slow on the abbreviations. My husband would kill me if he know I was on here... He's telling me to stay off the internet because I drive myself crazy. I'm on my 2 iui and I'm on my 2ww right now, I'm on the second week and I'm dying!! I go for beta test Monday. I had 3 eggs this time but my husbands levels were a little low. Someone help me through the next 5 days!!!
  • Just left the RE - it's a BFN for me. :(
