  • @JGY - I'm jealous of you getting to watch Anderson and Kathy! I LOVE Anderson Cooper! I doubt they will have CNN on at the bar I will be at. I might see if I can have them put it on. One of the advantages of knowing the owners. Not that I will be able to hear it though.

    Me: 30  DW (aka C): 29

    Together since 2/15/11 ~ Legally married in NY on 9/29/12

    ***CP mentioned***

    We've been working on baby #1 since July 2013 using Open ID donor sperm.  8 IUI attempts with 5 actual IUIs and one chemical pregnancy.  We have one fresh IVF cycle under our belts as well as a FET.  I have endometriosis and a uterine septum that was corrected via surgery in November 2013. 

    11/14/14 -  Second HSG shows that tubes are still clear and ute is looking good. 

    12/6/14 - Started BCPs in prep for IVF #2

    12/22/14 - Saline u/s and endometrial scratch (All was clear and OUCH!)

    1/2/15 - Began stimming for IVF #2

     ****All Welcome!****

    We are Mommas to four fur babies - 3 dogs and 1 cat.


  • Ash and I are still in MS at my parents' house. We're watching football and doing puzzles. I'm sure I'll be asleep between 9:30 and 10:00pm. I'll drink a glass or two of wine and have a champagne toast with my parents. Z is back in Texas. Will miss her!

  • Happy I went to sleep last night at 10:00 because here it is 6:00 am and both boys are up for morning playtimes. We watched Gone Girl on Amazon instant video last night, having read the book there were no surprises. Today we watch the Rose parade and Go Ducks!!

    Happy 2015!

    A & K, married 7/1/13.

    After 10 months of ttc via medicated IUIs and two early losses, we finally got our boys- Perfect premie twins born 5/27/14.



  • We had Sonic for dinner and spent the night in a red roof inn in michigan outside of Detroit on our way from my parents' place in Chicago to @Manada's grandparents' place in Chatham, Ontario where we will spend a few hours today then head back to Toronto.
    We did stay up until midnight but it was mostly an accident facilitated by the time change between Chicago and Michigan.
    ****loss discussed*****

    We're queer. I'm 33, have severe stage 4 endo, and had both fallopian tubes removed. My love ("Manada" on the boards, 32) was diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve. We did Partner IVF (my eggs, her uterus). We lost our twins Tavin and Casey at 21 weeks gestation.

    Our IUIs
    with @Manada: IUI# 1-7 (December 2012- September 2013) all BFN. Tried natural, femara, clomid, puregon/follistim, clomid and menopur combo, both the ovidrel and HCG triggers.

    Our IVFs:
    IVF #1 my eggs November/December 2013: Cancelled IVF due to poor response

    IVF #2 my eggs/Manada's uterus January/February 2014
    BCPs and lupron overlap Stimmed: 1/22-2/2: Bravelle and Menopur (dosage ranged from B300 and M150 to B375 and M150 to B300 and M225)
    2/4 retrieved 10 eggs. Endo was much worse than expected. Only 3 eggs fertilized; February 7 transferred two day 3 embryos, froze one. All great condition.
    BFP eve of 6dp3dt; Beta 1 (11dp3dt): 110; Beta 2 (13dp3dt): 175; Beta 3 (15dp3dt): 348; Beta 4 (19dp3dt): 2222; Beta 5 (21dp3dt): 4255
    1st ultrasound (3/6  6w 1d): TWINS!!!! Twin A measuring 6w1d with a heartbeat of 118bpm. Twin B measuring 6w0d with a heartbeat of 113bpm. 

    ***July 18, 2014 we lost our beautiful babies at 21 weeks gestation. They were born too early. Tavin Sara T. and Casey Elizabeth T. are beautiful and precious and we will love them and miss them forever.***

    FET #1 December 2014
    Intralipid infusion on Dec 10. Transfer of 1 day 3 nine-cell embryo into my uterus on Dec. 19. (acupuncture immediately before and after)
    BFP on Dec. 27; Beta 1 Jan 2 (14dp3dt): 665, Beta 2 Jan 4 (16dp3dt): 1859, Beta 3 Jan 6 (18dp3dt): 4449, Beta 4 Jan 10 (22dp3dt): 12,251.

  • We went to Medevil Times for the 6:30 show and were home by 9. Kids said they wanted to stay awake for the new year so we tried to watch some of the NYE shows with them, but they were so inappropriate (and we aren't terribly conservative about what they watch...) and the kids were fading. They went to bed at 9:30 to read and were asleep within minutes. L started watching Call the Midwives and she fell asleep before 10. LOL. So I rang in the new year alone while reading/texting with co-workers/catching up  FB posts.

    On New Years Day Gray and L ran a 5k, we went to brunch/lunch, ran an errand and then the kids played while L and I watched a movie/napped/read. We finally got moving and L cleaned out the linen closet while I fixed dinner and then we did some yoga together as a family.

    I am at work today. L is home ironing/continuing her decluttering madness and the kids are in camp.
