Re: IF/Testing Check In - Week of 3.20

  • @LadyMillil I'm very sorry to hear about the AMA diagnosis. Does this change how you feel going forward with IVF? I know t sounds so stupid that one is all it takes, but it is! And if the chance is there?

  • @JuneRoseRuby Thank you so much. I totally get where your friend is coming from. Spending that amount of money without any guarantee is really hard. At the same time giving up one having a biological child seems even harder to me. To be honest I have not even brought up the idea of a sperm donor to DH because I know how he would feel about it. This process is so difficult. Thank you for sharing. FX That your husband's BW shows a response and that if you have to do IVF that it is successful.

  • @JuneRoseRuby I understand. I think DH and I will be able to sit and really discuss all the options (limited as they may be) after our appointment on Thursday. Also I know the plan for you is IVF. I guess in the back of my mind I am hoping that at least one of us will be that SS that gets KU while waiting.

  • @TravelingCouple so far my side effects have been exhaustion and  crankiness...The exhaustion is the big one.  Scan is tomorrow so we will see how far along they are!
  • @leekat14 Fx for you that tomorrow goes well!

  • @TravelingCouple unless you tend to O early there is not really a need to do OPKs.   I have now done 7 rounds on letrozole (all the same dose) and I have had 1, 2, 3 and 4 follies.  So though you would love to have more all you need is one. I hope it is growing for you. I am so glad you had some good IF outlets today. Hang in there!

  • @KristoKekerooni I have felt really really low and at the end of my rope lately and I keep telling everyone who will listen WHERE'S MY SIGN? What am I supposed to do?? Is God trying to tell me something through this or teach me something?? Where IS God through all this? And just feel really angry. 

    I wasn't going to go this morning but really felt like I should. So I did. My therapist and I really clicked. And now everything you're​ writing today is really resonating with me too. I feel so strongly that God is saying I'm here. Thank you so much girl, seriously. Every time you share encouragement with someone, you never know how much that other person needed it. And I really did today. So thank you.

  • @TravelingCouple @KristoKekerooni @beachbunnyxo123 *raises hand* hi....fellow believer here. thanks for sharing, I feel your sentiments. church is so hard for me. I find its just the culture that people just reproduce like nothing...maybe its just my church. But I've been working on choosing joy and writing down all the things I'm thankful for and the blessings in my life at the end of the day. I've found some comfort in resting in the fact that I know that God has written my story out, He knows my baby and who they will be......He just hasn't revealed them to me yet for whatever reason. I believe that if the desire is put into your heart, then He will fulfull it in some way, at some time. Even if it doesn't look like how we thought it would. A girl at my church who knows our struggles gave me a little snowglobe that says "even miracles take a little time" and in the middle is a pillow with cinderella's glass slipper. It was so nice...I look at it often and it brings me comfort.

  • @vflux33 welcome (back), sorry that you're here. Our RE gave us the option to do TI before IUI which is what we're doing this cycle. Will move on to IUI if TI isn't the ticket for us.

    @JuneRoseRuby I'm so happy you got good news!!! And yes that book I'm always thinking to myself.. yup.. I could've written that myself. The chapter on how it affects your marriage is so spot on.

    @beachbunnyxo123  @vintageandrea90 Waiting on God's timing is so hard. I've had to wait for things in my life before, of course we all have. But this is such a different level of waiting, patience and trust that I've never experienced before. 

    I'd be interested in having a thread to share our prayers and thoughts with each other. I don't want to take over this thread and make anyone feel uncomfortable. Let me know what you think.. If not a thread on this board then a group is an option too. I know it'd help me to be able to work through the faith part of this pain with others.

  • @TravelingCouple Also a June baby!! Married to a June baby. So I am biased too! As far as the Letrozole, what strength (mg) are you on? I'm surprised the nurse hasn't played with upping your dose. Ask for that next time (if there is one). I didn't respond at all to 5mg, then popped two follicles right away on 7.5mg. Worth a shot if there is a next time.

  • @JuneRoseRuby yay that is such great news!!!!!!

    @vflux33 I remember you! Welcome back. Sorry to see you here at this thread. I haven't heard of pituitary pause before. It sounds like how my RE explained my elevated FSH she said it's working harder to get my body to listen for it to O. Was there a reason she didn't want to check your fsh level?

    @TravelingCouple I would definitely be interested! Maybe a weekly thread and if there's interest we can start a group? 

    @madspunk thank you!  <3

  • @KristoKekerooni I love the list and the story. Sometimes we can be so fixated on the end result that we don't enjoy life associated with the journey.  Thanks for the insight!

  • @KristoKekerooni SO embarrassing and now I have to find a way of explaining the gash on my head and why I'm extra late to work!
  • @vflux33 welcome back. I think its really common to go straight to IUI. Thats what both of my REs have done. For me I figure if I am paying OOP I should jump in whole hog (at least with IUI)
    @LadyMillil I'm glad your moving forward with IVF still. From lurking the IVF threads it sounds like multiple rounds of ER to bank follies is not uncommon. Have you gotten on the schedule yet? GL
    @beachbunnyxo123 well today is CD1, not a SS but I didn't expect to be. So I have my baseline US on friday and we will do letrozole 5mg, then estrogen (I tend to have a thin lining) trigger, then progesterone and prayer.
    @JuneRoseRuby HOORAY!!!!!!
    @leekat14 oh goodness girl! I hope your heads OK. You might not be laughing now but it will be a great TTC story later on! congrats on 2 beautiful follies and triggering! GL!!!
