    Hi girls-

    Best of luck to @isgabriel.

    @ronniesgirl1981 - how's it going with your new clinic? I wish it was closer to me, really had a good experience with them (under unfortunate circumstances)

    @twinkie0612- what's the plan for this FET? I'm dying to know! Thinking of you-

    Not too much going on here... My follow up with KK is the 19th, I'm nervous.

    Still struggling to figure out our next steps...

    Me (32) DOR, elevated NK Cells/ 2 copies of MTHFR mutation/ MH (35) azoo/high DFI   (TTC#1 since 2009)

    IVFs#1-4: (4/10-2/12) all BFN

    Surprise Bfp (9/11) - c/p

    DS IUI#1-2 (9/12, 10/12) - BFN

    DS IVF: (11/12) - BFN

    DE/DS IVF#1: (10/13) - 2 day 3 embies transferred-BFFN

    FET of 2 day 6 blasts: (12/13) - c/p

    DE/DS IVF #2: (4/14) - 1 day 5 blast transferred...BFFN...again.

    FET 5/14: 1 day 5 hatching blast transferred...another BFFN

    Repeat SHG 6/14-normal / Endometrial Receptivity Array biopsy 7/14-Receptive Uterus

    New RE, additional testing reveals elevated NK Cells

    FET of 1 day 5 blast (RE recommends transferring 1 due to elevated NK cells) with lovenox, steroids & intralipids in October

  • @Km672 ; Thanks for thinking of me.  The plan for this FET is still slightly evolving, honestly I feel a little like I am writing my own protocol. :) 

    I started 20mg of prednisone on 3/10, it would have been 3/3 but I needed to give my uterus time to heal from the hysteroscopy before supressing my immune system.  I start Lupron on 3/16 overlapping with BCPs for a few days.  My baseline is on 3/24 and I will also do my NK and cytokine blood work and monthly (CBC, CMP, APTT) blood work for KK that day as well.  I start oral estrace the 26th, I believe (this is a change from my last protocol, where I took delestrogen injections twice a week).  My RE added an extra E2 blood draw and an extra ultrasound to watch for any potential lining issues.  So I go in 4/1 for E2 blood draw, 4/6 is E2 and u/s, 4/7 is doppler and IVIG with Dr. KK, 4/9 is E2 and u/s.  Hopefully my lining looks good and I start PIO on 4/9 for transfer on 4/14.

    Since I found out that my appeal for IVIG was denied (although I am planning on filing and external review and wrote a letter to include with the appeal today) I decided to add intralipids as well this cycle.  I am doing a double dose of intralipids on 4/10.  I will have NK and cytokine testing around 4/14 and depending on these results and the results from 3/24, KK will likely recommend a second dose of IVIG which will be around 4/17.   If this cycle is successful, I will probably have a third infusion after a positive beta.

    I am already on baby aspirin (my RE wanted me to start it with BCPs, but I had to delay until after my hysterscopy because of bleeding) and will start lovenox around 3/27 and Viagra suppositories on 4/4.  I am also on an increased dose of vitamin e to hopefully improve blood flow and help build my lining.  I am also trying tart cherry and turmeric this cycle to hopefully help control my cytokines and avoid needing a second IVIG before a positive beta.

    Hopefully combining between KK's immune protocol and my RE's immune protocol, we will finally have a successful cycle.

    Hey MM29! It is good to hear from everyone. Thanks for starting the thread.


    @Isgabriel I hope your transfer went well and that you are resting comfortably. Please let us know when your beta is (if you feel comfortable) so that we cn cheer you on!


    @ronniesgirl1981 When are you starting your next cycle?


    @Twinkie0612 Good luck with the lupron. I hope you don't get any headches! I undertand when you say you feel like you re writing your own protocol. Honestly, that is what I starte to do after IVF 3-ish and I believe that ultimately contributed to my success.


    @Km672 - GL with you KK appt. Are they going to be checking your levels again?
