Re: --- 2IF Weekly Check-in (Feb 16) ---

  • Cycle Status:  CD1 eff all of this.  Since this was IUI #4 I am terrified that at my next appointment my RE is going to have the "next steps" talk with me.  When they cut me off from doing any more IUIs we will be done.  I don't know how I am going to handle this shit.


    QOTW:  I can't wait to start planting our garden this year.  Last year was the first time we grew tomatoes in years and I had horrible morning sickness that made them taste like metallic vomit.  It was a bummer.  I am a bit bummed that our winter was so lame here.  We haven't made it up to the mountains yet and I am afraid all of the snow will disappear before we get up there.

  • @pdxveg‌ Hugs. Major hugs. I have similar fears.

  • Cycle Status: CD 2. I hate IUI cycle periods. They are awful and painful and the worst ever. Moving on to 3rd and possibly final IUI. Regardless of finality, we will take a break to discuss whether we are willing to do more IUIs or if this is it for us. Not looking forward to that discussion, but we have also started talking about "consolation" prizes. DH wants a major vacation. I'd like to consider a really fun car. Who knows. But it's nice to know there might be something cool to look forward to even if we can't realize our dream.

    QOTW: I look forward to grilling and being outside. My full time job is in a school, so I'll miss the snow days!
  • CD 18 here.  I had an IUI on Friday morning, following a round of Femara/Bravelle/Ovidrel.  This combo seemed to work for us the last time around (ended in a MMC, unfortunately), so we're trying to be positive.  Trying to keep myself busy so the TWW flies by.

    QOTW:  I won't sugarcoat it. I HATE WINTER.  Love the Christmas season, but once that's done, I'm ready for spring.  Especially these past few years, it's been pretty harsh around here.  I'm looking forward to planting flowers and maybe updating the landscaping a bit this year.  I so badly just want to lay out on my patio in the warm sun.  Getting a big case of cabin fever.

  • CD- not sure really. I've had a nasty cold since Thursday and should've O'd this weekend so no trying this cycle. RPL follow up today was all good so next IUI cycle date TBD. We leave for vacation mid-cycle next month so that's out.
    Q- I am not a fan of winter, if that's what you call our weather. This morning started out at 70F and dropped now to 45F with rain and wind. Looking forward to planing and landscaping the yard and sunning at the beach :)
    @pdxveg‌ I am not quite there yet, have a couple more IUIs to go but that fear started after the first fail. I don't think ivf will be possible for us. Hugs!

    Two years, two losses and three IUIs...

    We are having TRIPLETS!

  • CD 9. Regular old natural cycle this month. 

    I despise winter. I hate the snow and cold. I can't wait for warmer weather where we don't have to freeze every time we go outside. I can't wait to be able to take DS for walks again, play in the backyard, turn down the heat. Spring cannot come soon enough for me!

  • Cycle - I am 4 days post egg retrieval of our first IVF cycle.  We had total fertilization failure followed by rescue ICSI. Sunday there were 2 fertilized and yesterday they called to say 4 were developing.  I'm now waiting to hear how they look on day 3 (today) and that will determine how many we can freeze.  None are going to be transferred fresh.

    QOTW - I can't really complain about the winter weather in so cal.  We've had 80 degree days this last week.

  • I just got word that the two embryos that fertilized Sunday from rescue ICSI are grade A- and B+ and will be frozen today (day 3) and are around 8-9 cells I think.  I have no idea if that is good or not but RE sounded like those two have a chance.  The other two that fertilized late are around 5 cells each and don't look great but they will look at them again late this afternoon and freeze them then.  He didn't sound too hopeful about those.  I have to call CD 1 and go in for U/S and labs on CD 2 or 3 in preparation for FET mid-March.
