QOTW: With my inlaws in town right now, I realize I am not the most gracious host—things easily annoy me. How do you handle house guests?
TTC, without meds, hoping for a wonderful "surprise!
calindi- Waiting to O, but not using OPKs because I don't want the pressure. Here goes nothing on cycle #2!
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!
TTC, with treatments
1983Lindsey2- I had my IVF consult Wednesday and am starting to redo some testing. I have my baseline on Monday and they will redo all my blood work and do an u/s. Since I don't have periods, they said any day can be baseline pretty much. I was hoping to do the retrieval in July but they are booked and only do egg retrevals every other month, we are looking at a September retreval. He said if everything looks like it did two years ago, which he thinks it will given my age, we will be doing an antagonist protocol freeze all with PGD. I was bummed waiting that long since I waited 3 months for the appointment and was told it would be plenty of time to cycle in July, but it isn't the end of the world. Summers go by fast.
amandaleigh1- I am waiting to O. May as well go for it as we wait to do a fresh cycle. In the meantime, waiting for more definitive HCV results for DH. We have an update on DH's HCV situation. His test was still reactive on a second try but there was no detectable virus, so that is good. He is still going to see an infectious disease expert soon. I'm assuming that we are still go as long as insurance is fine.
Bellalou – Surgery Tuesday.
efhoping2010- Started Lupron on Wednesday, last BCP on Sunday then wait for AF to start vivelle patches for our FET on 7/15
Gregermis- Smack in the middle of the 2ww... no longer hopefully for this cycle because we were (a) trying on our own and (b) I got a tummy bug which just doesn't seem beneficial. Still waiting on results from DH's repeat SA and repeat diagnostic IUI.
hham10- Had my first beta in Friday and it was 159. I go back Monday for a repeat and am just praying the numbers increase appropriately. I've been in shock and don't feel like it's real.
iloveflipflops- Hi everyone sorry I've been missing checking in on here. I met with a endocrinologist about my elevated thyroid levels he gave me thyroid medicine to get my thyroid level situated before I started a treatment at my fertilty center. So that was a couple of weeks back fast forward to this week I was waiting for my cycle to start again on time like it usually does was a little off while pumping but then resumed to normal postpartum. I was siting here waiting and no symptoms of an impending af ( very odd for me but I chalked it to stress)so fast forward to this week I'm not normally a testing taking girl but something wasn't adding up took one today and two lines popped up I'm pregnant . I'm still in shock we got pregnant and on our own I can't believe it I still am having a hard time believing it my diagnosis is Dor to conceive our son we went the route of gearing up for Ivf I never responded to the injection drugs clomid was our last option treatment wise and the clomid +ovidrel iui ended end up giving us our little Miracle baby boy. My RE said even he couldn't believe that had even worked.So this is another complete miracle baby to say the least and I'm just hoping for a healthy pregnancy ( infertilty nerves never go away) . Goodluck to everyone wherever you are on your journey I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers and wish you nothing but the best.
KK_8721-Appt today to go pay for the cycle and go over the meds! Woohoo!
meganfauer- Started injections of follistim last night for round 6 but round 1 for baby #2. Fingers toes and everything crossed. We tried on our own for that "miracle" everyone tells us about for over a year.
Run20K- My egg retrieval is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. I'm praying that this is it for us.
SharonB222- RE appt Wednesday! [wide-eyed emoticon] I suppose there was a cancellation b/c typically it takes a month to get in. So here we go! Jury duty tomorrow, mammo Monday (DH reminded me that I am BFing DS, but DS is 18 mos and it's more like a couple snacks a day - so hopefully it won't botch the mammo), RE Wednesday, in the following weeks: dermatologist, (vacation), dentist, OBGYN and PCP. Game on!
STL34- I started Femera for another TI cycle on Tuesday. I should trigger early next week.
SUG92- Good luck to everyone! I had my IUI yesterday so I'm crossing my fingers! Baby dust to everyone.
Thosethreewords- The urologist thinks that a TESE has a very good chance at success. So it looks like we'll have simultaneous procedures next month.
ON A BREAK, hoping to get back in the game soon
