IF Treatment &Testing Week of July 31

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: What are your favorite stores for purchasing clothing?

  • @KariAnn323 I might call your RE before they do any more tests just to make sure they will accept them. I know my RE doesn't accept HSGs or SSGs from OBs, and I would hate for you to waste money/time

  • KariAnn323 Ugh sorry. That's a lot to be going through all at once. EDD's are very hard and I hope you can do something nice for yourself on Thursday. Also, I second what kiwi2628 said. I've heard that a lot of RE's are picky about the HSG's and SSG's and will make you do them again if you didn't do it specifically with them. Definitely don't want to have it done twice and pay for it twice!

  • @laurad75 yes, I feel like I will have to have a preparatory discussion with H to make sure he doesn't say anything moronic. 

    @lulu1180 I fully support breaks. I felt so much better after I took off December.  Of course I also had to take off January through now, but I feel like it makes you mentally prepared to battle IF.  Reset your mind, heart, relationship with H.  I don't know that you need to set a time limit of how long you will be on a break, but just know we will miss you and you are welcome back whenever, friend!

  • @purplg8r ; Hopefully you won't even be needing that appointment!  AFM, My re thinks that the high prolactin was our issue.  Obviously, there's a whole lot of other issues, so I'm not thrilled about these next 3 months.

  • @leekat14 so many hugs. I am so sorry you are still here
    @JuneRoseRuby Eeeeee! Good luckk today!
    @lulu1180 I am so sorry you are feeling out of control. I hope the break does wonders for your mental health, but I will miss you
    @Redpuma119 I know the gut feeling of IVF. Back when I was only on cycle 6 I was like 'I know there is something wrong with me, I know'. So sorry you are feeling down though
    @purplg8r luckily they aren't painful at all
