Trying to Get Pregnant

IF/Testing Check In Week of 3/13

This is a place for those of us who have already started TTC, but have started infertility testing and/or treatments. You can express your thoughts, feelings, and frustrations on infertility. TTC can be a long journey naturally, then add in the difficulties associated with infertility and it becomes a whole new ball game. The road to infertility can be lonely, frustrating, and complicated, so let's make this a place where we can vent, ask questions, and support one another.  Feel free to resurrect this thread at any point in the week if you have something to say, and treat this like an ongoing conversation. 

Diagnosis (If you've been): 

Cycle/CD: 

Status (WTO/TWW/TTA):  

What are you doing this cycle? (Testing? Treatment?)
  
How are things going?
  
Any questions? 

GTKY: March Madness inspired - do you participate in March Madness brackets? If not, do you have a favorite sport to watch?

    @KristoKekerooni I'm so sorry for the BFN :( I'm sorry the Clomid is such a pain too and totally knocking you out. All the appts, blood work, side effects, prodding and poking is hopefully leading us toward a baby in our arms.. That is all that's keeping me going when I think of all the things we're doing this month too. I am rooting so hard for you!

    ETA @tamalahoops I think she was just giving me all of the different scenarios. They wouldn't move forward with it without reason.

  • @wabash15 That's a tough one. I would think with 4 days of a sustained shift, you could be pretty confident, but the positive OPK on CD18 is throwing me off... I wonder if tomorrow's temp (assuming it gets higher) will cause your CH to shift to CD19 or so... Your BD is outstanding no matter what though!

  • I haven't even seen my effing doctor. The cycle ended up being accidentally unmonitored- meaning they kept canceling last minute and I never got seen. My doctor is awesome, but his staff sucks. He was out on vacation so he wasn't able to set them straight. He was pissed I wasn't monitored. 

    Anyway, I also just started AF, so yay to that. My LP ended up not changing on progesterone, which sucks because I was hoping it would make my FW line up properly in a week so the IUI can be done, because if it looks like weekend, my doc will cancel it since they aren't open. They way it's looking now, I probably won't get the IUI done. I am so upset today. I'm freaking tired. So tired of this shit. 

    And it's fucking Monday so it's not like I can go overboard drowning my "Cycle 33 sorrows" in alcohol. 

    fuck this Monday more than any other Monday.

  • @antoto Glad to see you're back on the IVF train soon. Question for you - I stalked your signature and noticed that you plan on doing PGS testing. Do you mind sharing why you and your H made that decision? It's something I'm struggling with right now.

  • @antoto I'm glad your able to move your IVF up a month. Fx all goes well
    @KristoKekerooni sorry for CD1 and that your having such a rough IUI road. Its unusual that  your clinic won't do the IUI on the weekend. Most won't do IUI US on the weekend but will do the IUI itself. its crazy that they cut out 2 days a week because everyone cycles differently.  Well maybe if worse comes to worse it can be a TI cycle...
    @JuneRoseRuby i'm sorry your having such anxiety about BFPs. It might be something to mention to your BFF... hugs
    @tamalahoops This process sucks and its totally understandable that your anxious about this FET. Fx so hard for your little man that he's a fighter and the one.

  • @travelingcouple I'm so glad you've decided to find a therapist. It's okay to feel like you need help navigating through all these shitty feelings. I really hope that it helps you and you find an outlet. You're doing the right thing by taking care of yourself.  <3

  • @wabash15 - Yeah, it's because it's just a regular OB. I live in the middle of nowhere. the closest RE is five hours away and I didn't want to juggle that with "just" an IUI. Now I am questioning it. 


    @TravelingCouple - Good for you. I hope the therapist helps. I wish I could hug you, a big part is because I'm right there with you. I haven't stopped crying today and I am effing devastated. I hope your upcoming medicated cycle is the end of the line with TTC for you and you walk away with a baby. Hugs, friend. 

    @Aurora1973 - Thanks. I will get over it. I always do. I just hate seeing the numbers get biggger and bigger.

  • @KristoKekerooni ahh that explains it. Sorry I forgot you were doing your IUI through your OB. It sucks that an RE is so far away.... could you work out some sort of mixed care where your OB does your scanning for you and sends the results to and RE and the RE does the IUI so that way you don't have to miss out? hugs I'm so sorry you have to deal with all this shit.

  • @TravelingCouple hugs to you.  That is an awful feeling.  We've all heard the stories of people who are just getting ready for some major treatment and get KU the cycle before, and it makes it so easy to have those painful expectations.  I'm so sorry you're going through this, but I'm glad that you're going to talk to someone.  I really hope it helps.

  • @KristoKekerooni So sorry about AF. It's so frustrating. We're here for you.

    @JuneRoseRuby I feel the exact same. I hid my friends posts on FB so I won't see her pregnancy updates anymore. Anytime someone says to me "I have something to tell you" I automatically think it's that and my stomach drops. My co-worker said "I have some exciting news" and I could feel my eyes starting to sting with tears but then she told me she got a new job....it's pretty ridiculous. Also my SIL got KU on her first try last year and already said she hopes to be KU with #2 by the time he's 1....I'm dreading dreading dreading that annoucement. It's so terrible.

  • @KristoKekerooni I'm so sorry that now it's CD1 and that B AF didn't even have the courtesy to show on a day you could get drunk.  :s I'm also sorry for all the trouble you're having with your OBs office and the IUI. Do you think if your follies are sufficiently large, it would be possible to trigger early if you risk running into the weekend? Or I second the question about the possibility of doing the IUI with your RE? I know you've talked about that before and I can't remember your answer. Anyway, lots of creepy internet hugs to you and I hope your FW manages to align itself properly with the work week.
