***TTC again check in 6/3*** — The Bump
Success after IF

***TTC again check in 6/3***

Hi ladies! Good luck to those ladies cycling!!

 

((Hugs)) to everyone else who needs them!! This check-in
is open to anyone that is part of the SAIF community and is currently TTC
again, either on their own, or via injectibles,IUI, IVF, adoption, etc.

 

A check-in will be posted every week. Please reply to
the check-in post if you would like to be added to the group. Each check-in
will provide the opportunity for you to provide an update as to where you
currently are in your TTC. Once you get pregnant please post about your first
and second beta then move over to the pregnancy check in.

 

QOTW: What is your favorite dinner that your kid(s) also like?

 

TTC, without meds, hoping for a wonderful
"surprise!

 

bleebebebebe- I had an appointment with my RE yesterday
for a fluid ultrasound. All looked fine. So I got my calendar and a birth
control Rx. BCPs should start in about 2 weeks with my next period and meds
begin in mid March. It's kind of starting to feel real that we are really about
to go through this again. Getting nervous too....

 

calindi- we had sex, now we wait. It's so weird to be at the beginning of this crazy train again. I can't really bring myself to hope - I keep finding myself just thinking of it as checking boxes towards resuming treatment next year. As we were unexplained, it certainly could happen, but I just don't feel like it will. More than 22 failed cycles last time just makes me think something needed that Follistim and IUI. Or maybe we even got lucky with that. That's a rabbit hole of worry I try not to let myself go down.

 

emwaiting – 6/18 We are currently off all meds and just
seeing what will happen on our own. Praying for that little miracle to happen.
You know be one of those that can say "it will happen when you quit
trying!" ha I will be 6 wks tomorrow from my last period so that is
frustrating that it won't come on it's own. If it isn't here in another week
then they will do a blood test to make sure I'm not prego and then do the meds
to start my period. Kinda hard to have that miracle without my period or
ovulating. We had to do IVF to get our DS so we are thinking we will have to go
down that road again so time to save $$ again!

 

fullfhope- we are TTC on our own right now, going to RE
on December 29 and we will make a plan then for going forward.

 

iloveflipflops- After completing all my repeat screening to start my clomid fsh iui treatment cycle I'm still in limbo .My results came back with me having an elevated Tsh thyroid level so my RE told me to go see my primary dr my primary dr said they are borderline but my fertility center has a cut off for thyroid and my primary dr understands we need to restart the fertility process ASAP so that dr referred me to go see a Endocrinologist. That appt isn't until two week so needless to say I'm frustrated my cd1 just began today knowing I have all my fertility medicines pills and trigger shot sitting in dining room not knowing when I will be able to use all of it annoys me. Hoping I get to use everything sooner than later.

 

katekat8721-AF came and went and was horrible. We are
still trying on our own, a miracle baby would be nice but ya know. We filed our
taxes and found we'll be getting back enough to cover the FET, so that's a load
off our chest. I weaned from the pump so this cycle was all jacked up, I don't
know if I should expect AF this weekend or if it'll be another 50+ day cycle.
Annoying!

 

Missionobaby- Hi Everyone, I new to the forum, the 2ww
is killing me and forums has been keeping me motivated and well informed. After
3 years of TTC, DH and I have been seeing a RE for approximately a 1 year. What
i found out over the year, i had endometrisis (3/14) which lead to 3 years of
horrible menstrual cycles. After antibiotic treatment, I was told everything
should clear up. After about a year of exams of DH and I we still have not
received a clear explanation for IF. I was placed on letrozole cycle day 3-7,
started opk day 10. Went in for IUI on day 16. P4 done today and 1 week left to
test! After OV I had 3 days of cramping from left ovary and dpiui 4 to today i
have been feeling so nauseated, which i believe is really early for it to be a
cause related to treatment.

 

Nursey (Okitty)- no sibling for DS on the horizon--working on month 7 of trying. It'll be ok, cause I'm relishing in BFFs joy instead for now!

 

MAbride0808-Cycle 3 was a bust. We are just going to
continue to TTC until our RE appointment in March.

 

TTC, with treatments

 

1983Lindsey2-I have a week and half now till my IVF appointment and I am anxious to get started! I hope to do the cycle in July or early August, but I will know more soon.

 

amandaleigh1- Today was my FET transfer. I had 2 frozen left. They thawed one, and it did not look good. So they thawed the last one. That one looked pretty good, so it was transferred. Now I wait. I did an acupuncture afterward and had a nice lunch out. So at least I got a nice relaxing afternoon after it! Update- BFP 6dp FET. Beta on Sunday.

 

Bellalou – Appt on Thursday with RE. Had 8.75mm fluid in ute. Need hysterectomy. I'm gonna try for last 2 embryos til I hafta pay for storage and I'll probably be all done. Maybe not even that long. I'm exhausted and the fluid is beating me.

 

efhoping2010-I am back, and shocked to be back. DH after discussing the CCS results and FET regroup call with our RE has decided we should start the FET prep with my AF starting next week!  That was supposed to be my original FET date but I am very excited and cautious to be back. I e-mailed my nurse and will need to start BCP with CD 3 and have an HSG but then I am guessing my FET will be late June/early July?

 

Gregermis- had mid cycle monitoring today. Lining looks good. Looks like they will have me trigger tomorrow evening for IUI on Friday am. update: had IUI, only 2.8 mil total motile. UGH! My DH's sperm just don't like the IUI prep procedure

 

hham10- I had my e2 check this week and all looked good. I'm continuing 4 patches every other day and Lupron for another few days. I have my lining check on Thursday and tentative transfer on the 8th. I'm starting to get nervous.

 

KK_8721-Consents are signed and our approval to ship our babies home has been sent in the mail. They should be back at the RE's mid-June. We go in this week to pay for the cycle and have the nurse go over our meds. Most of June is going to be dedicated to the FET and it makes me really excited!

 

Run20K- I transferred 2 blasts yesterday and learned
today that none of my remaining embryos were freeze quality, which makes me so
sad.

 

STL34- I had my HSG yesterday.  Valium made a huge difference, the doctor had no issue with my cervix and my tubes are CLEAR!!  So much better than my last HSG which showed both tubes blocked!

 

SUG92- Good luck to everyone! I had my IUI yesterday so I'm crossing my fingers! Baby dust to everyone.

 

Thosethreewords- I think I captured most of it in the other thread (tl:dr no fert, horrible horrible sperm). DH has an appointment with his urologist/andrologist in two weeks. Meanwhile, the RE is going to call him and see if using DH's frozen sample from two years ago or doing a TESE would be the best route. They didn't have enough of the frozen to do a test thaw - so just relying on that makes me a little nervous. We have one more partially covered by insurance - hopefully, that will work because I don't know where we'll go after that.

 

ON A BREAK, hoping to get back in the game soon

    I have my IVF consult next Wednesday to get this process started! I am so excited!! I have lost 32 lbs and am 3 lbs away from being at my weight before I started all the meds with #1. I have about ten more to go to be a healthy BMI and I am hoping to get there by the time my cycle starts. I am nervous and excited!

    QOTW: my son is only 9 mo tha old and will eat anything right now. I love chicken wings recently a lot, but my main love will always be tacos!!

  • Well, I am mentally TTC, even though FET is months away. AMA means lots of "tune-up" appts (and checks). I scheduled my PCP appt. I had my 1st dentist appt (and have two more to replace a crown). I need to schedule the OBGYN, dermatologist and Mammo appts. Chiropractor while I am at it. And most importantly, I need to schedule my RE appt RE. Makes me nervous and excited to think about that last one... OMG... back on the roller coaster. ;)

    QOTW: Recently - fish.

  • efhoping2010 Isn't it always like that? AF comes early if a person is on vacation, but it's late waiting to cycle!

    @amandaleigh1 So sorry for the CP for your last two snowbabies. Any idea what's next or a break, or done?

    Gregermis Sorry for your likely CP. Wishing you a pleasant surprise while you consider possibilities. Is another IVF a possibility in the future at all?

    1983Lindsey2 Congrats on getting near your previous pre-cycle weight! GL reaching your target! I'm 10 lbs from mine too.

  • Hi everyone things got kind of busy so I haven't been checking in as much. Still sitting back waiting to start my IUI protocol.. Meeting with an endocrinologist next week to talk about my borderline thyroid levels so that I can proceed with treatment at my fertility center. Just ready to get started again with the process however not getting my cycle next week and being pregnant would be better yet. Hope everyone is doing well.Sorry about the chemical pregnancy amandaleigh

    Dx : DOR

    IUI #1 (Follistim switched over to Menopur injections) - BFN

    Attempted IUI #2 (Menopur injections only cycle) better response on the Menopur then the Follistim combination treatment cycle however my cycle was still canceled due to my eggs not maturing and follicles not growing enough on a high dose of Menopur (Re said I could try a cycle of comid + ovidrel  for an IUI) for my second IUI( praying this works for us)

      Clomid + Ovidrel protocol worked still a BFN as a result

    Attempted cycle  Clomid  + Ovidrel protocol for IUI # 3 (Unable to do this cycle due to a cyst)

    IUI # 3 Clomid+ Ovidrel protocol - BFP    Beta #1 752  Beta #2  1536    Beta #3 3797
