Re: September IVF

  • @rainbows2018 yep so far so good - and I injected myself tonight, just to know I can, although DH should be here every night. The Pergoveris pen needle is really thin and the liquid not very viscous so no pain and no bruising so far. The Orgalutran and Ovitrelle have thicker needles though...
    And regarding time off, with a normal stimulation unless you're on your feet all day or doing manual work my RE said should be ok, but as the ER is with sedation then you can't drive or work that day. Here in Germany it's mandatory not to work for 12 hours after. So I will have to take that day off.

    @adirat AFC is looking fab!

    @latvaughanash I also have a busy schedule these next two weeks at work, with lots of major meetings, but I'm preparing well in advance and quietly ensuring one of my team can substitute in each - which they all like as part of their development. Then I will take each day as it comes is my plan. Despite what i might like to think, the world won't end if I'm not there for the odd day or two ;-)

    @loverin so glad you made it through the storm ok! 
    I thought I felt more lower back ache the last two days, but I think I could also be imagining it lol
    Hope your ovaries wake up soon with the change in dose!

    @decemberdoll27 woohoo for triggering! And sending you all the best wishes from Europe for ER tomorrow eeek!
    I don the believe there is any vidence it will impact egg quality at this stage - but I guess the anesthetist will need to say you're healthy enough for the sedation - you might have to act like Monica from friends when she wants to HIO and Chandler doesn't want to as she's sick and she tries to make out she's healthy! (Now I need to try to find a gif for that!!!)

    @sunnyrain2 oh no - I was going to say cross your legs, but I'm not sure that will help slow down ovulation!!! Just tell those ovaries to slow down until your ER - when is it planned for now? 

    @businesswife has AF made full arrival, or is she giving you a few more days to get all that insurance paperwork in order? (I mean, for once she could just help out a little!)

    AFM, keeping going with the nightly stim injections and all my normal tablets. Feeling like I'm a little bit drunk with excitement (or FSH - does that make you feel drunk?) but trying to keep my feet on the ground as we have no idea how I might respond until we have first monitoring on Friday. We've planned to go away for a night over the weekend to a spa hotel as Friday is my birthday, so whatever the news in the morning we have something to look forward to

    Totally loving all the activity every day on here, though it takes me half an hour to read and respond to everyone on mobile, and sorry if I missed anyone!

    Hi ladies!  Wow, lots of activity, but I guess we are right in the thick of September.  Took me a bit to catch up since I'd been taking a bump break to try to maintain sanity before jumping into all this myself (after a longer break than @cmiller73 after my June ER yielded no normals), but it's not really working that well.  I'm just waiting for AF this weekend to kick off IVF#4 with a new RE, which will be a natural start microdose lupron flare protocol (which sounds to me a little bit like a recipe for a dominant follicle, but I'll try it - and maybe EPP next time if this goes poorly).

    @JaeJayStark CONGRATULATIONS!!  Fx for a healthy and happy 9 mos!

    @BusinessWife  I'll always remember that you were the one who told me I could pause my FF account when I needed to last August :)

    @emmasemm  I love that you have a decision tree!  I would probably freak out so much less if I'd considered all options in advance.  So many tough decisions to make on our journeys.

    @cmiller73 Howdy! I'm sorry to hear about your *TW* loss :(. One of my girlfriends lost a PGS normal last summer, but delivered a healthy baby boy this summer. We only have one normal so far so haven't transferred it/her yet.  Nice AFC!  Hopefully you'll be done after this cycle.  I think I'll be about a week+ behind you.

    @DecemberDoll27 Hang in there!  That's super frustrating, I hope all works out.

    Regarding time off, I took the day of ER and the day after off for my first retrieval - I probably didn't need to, but I admit it was nice not getting the depressing fert report call while I was at work the next day.  My second retrieval fell on a Saturday, so I had Sunday to recover, and my third one was on Sunday and I think I worked the following day. No idea why though as I have way more PTO than DH does.

    Also, because I don't get huge numbers (AFC is usually 8-9 - retrieved 12, 10, and 14 earlier this year, and even five years ago I only got 12), my ovaries don't usually start feeling heavy until about a week into stims.

    I'm sorry I can't respond to each of you, but I am rooting for each and every one of you!

  • @JaeJayStark congratulations!! That's fantastic for a first beta. Mind if I ask if they transferred one or more??

    @emmasemm and @artemis618 thanks for your advice. I have another scan tomorrow but most likely ER won't be until next week. 

    Everyone else - let's grow those follicles!

    I went in for blood work this afternoon.  Hopefully the results will come in tomorrow morning in time for my 11 day scan.  I asked the nurse and she said the lh wasn't super high, it had just gone up from my test on Friday.  Progesterone did not also go up, which is a good thing.  

    I'm a little worried about lh not being suppressed properly.  For my FET in May I was on Lupron and developed a dominant follicle.  I suspect this caused the timing of the transfer to be slightly off.  I wonder if I need to have my pituitary check to see if there is a reason I'm not being properly suppressed.  

    Anyway I'll know more tomorrow, tonight it's Menopur as usual and Cetrotide only tomorrow morning.  My clinic likes to trigger when there are 5 follicles over 18mm.  I had 4 on Monday so I should be told to trigger tomorrow night for a Friday ER, we'll see though.  I'm out of meds (nurse only ordered enough for 10 days) so they'll have to give me meds if I need to stim an extra day or two

  • @artemis618 welcome back - just in time for "super sticky September"!!!
    What's your diagnosis? (Just interested with your AFC, as it looks quite similar to mine...@buckin
    And have you discussed with your RE about day3 transfers if you don't have so many and there is a risk they won't make blast? That's our plan.

    @businesswife great news on full on CD1, now come on that paperwork!

    @sunnyrain2 fx for the US Wednesday and that all looks good, no follie is racing ahead and you can trigger already! 
    Good point on the suppression - I'm interested in this too as one question I had for my RE right at the start was that I have other issues where my pituitary "ignores" the feedback from other hormone levels and just keeps doing it's own thing. And he said well they have the option to either directly or in-directly suppress the pituitary, so we keep those options in mind based on first round results.

    I wonder if in some clinics they don't over prescribe meds at the start, not only because they don't want you to waste loads, but even so when you "unexpectedly" need one or two days more they can legitimately provide them to you... just a thought...

    @emmasemm Thanks!  We're unexplained, but probably it's more that I'll be 40 in a few weeks.  I actually started the progesterone suppositories and estrogen patch after my second retrieval preparing for a day 3 xfer since our first cycle went so abysmally.  I had insurance coverage for two cycles, so knew we definitely wanted to do the second - I wasn't as committed to the idea of doing a third OOP so more open to a fresh transfer.  We ended up sending 5 blasts for testing that cycle.  But really after our *TW* loss last year, the main reason we jumped to a IVF was for the prospect of PGS.  We didn't anticipate this going quite so poorly because somehow we *TW* got KU naturally the month after our wedding last year despite our ages (and she was NIPT-normal).  So I think crappy egg quality as an unofficial diagnosis.

    So, I dunno.  I don't want to be an AW.  But I guess the reality of starting another cycle is hitting me, and moreso the fears that it might not go great.  I am still waiting to hear back about insurance authorization.  What if they decide not to cover it afterall?  Meds are already on their way!  Lol

    This is only my second round... they took 18 eggs *so far*, 10 mature, 6 fertilized. So what if my eggs are even worse this time?  Or again, like only 1/3 of my eggs even take? Only 1/6 make it to freeze? 50/50 shot each one even sticks?  If say we got 24 eggs this time but with a similar result - 16 mature, 9 or 10 fertilized, 4 or 5 make it to freeze, that would be amazing. And we are not doing pgs, so 7-8 blasts total, I think gives us a better shot at ending up with more than two kids.  But that whole 24/16 part sounds like a LOT!!!

    They are increasing my dosage of Follistim to 450 out of the gate, but what if it's not enough and my ovaries just suck at responding??? What if they took the best ones already and the rest are all crap?  I dunno why I'm feeling so worried this morning. But I'm feeling like we could be about to go through this whole other cycle, and ya, it could go even better!  But it's also just as likely it could go worse.  DH loved to reassure me before the first one that he was the one with the problem, and I would be fine.  But now I think he sees, just bc the woman doesn't have any particular fertility "issue," still doesn't guarantee a phenomenal ivf cycle.  Honestly, the needles? I don't even care.  It's the stress and anxiety wondering how it's going to go that kills me. :/

  • Disappointed after my u/s scan this am. The follicle count went down from 13 to 12. When we were doing my diagnostics, I had in the ball park of 17 follicles so this month doesn't look great in terms of numbers. Plus they are not growing fast enough - the biggest one is only 8mm after 5 days of stims and they have me on the max possible dose. 

    Best case, retrieval might be end of next week. Taking 3 days off from work - if nothing, I will be lounging in my bed, binge watching Game of Thrones. 


    emmasemm
  • @rainbows2018 Sorry to hear it. 5 days is early on in stims though -- plenty of time to catch up. Fx.

    @BusinessWife Take a deep breath. You have 3 embryos frozen. That's 1 baby, probably 2. Even if you do exactly the same this round, that's one more baby, probably 2, so four babies. Four babies!!! When before the chances were zero. Sure, things could go worse this cycle...but they could also go BETTER because now your doc knows how you respond. I believe in your lil ovaries! 


    BusinessWifeloverinemmasemm
  • @BusinessWife That's the hard part of the process, that you can't control any of the concerns you listed. On average the attrition rate is about 50% when embryos are developing (just an average some are more or less). That's held true for 3/4 of my ERs to date. It helps me, maybe it will help someone else, to know that even in real life outside of ART not every egg gets fertilized, not every fertilized get develops appropriately, and even when everything is right it doesn't always result in a pregnancy. With IVF everything is more in your face so you are aware of this attrition that happens in nature behind the scenes.

  • LH dropped! Yay!  The nurse said it could be a number of things from lab error to a bad dose of Cetrotide. We're moving forward as normal. Trigger tonight at 10:45 and ER Friday at 9:45. 

    Estrogen is over 2000 as of yesterday so they want me to start Cabergoline tonight to help prevent OHSS. 

    Bunches of eggs for me though I still only anticipate 3 blasts to transfer in day 5 based on prior cycles (I'm old and have had two failed transfers this year, all three are going in). 15 less than 10mm they won't be mature in time for ER, which is normal for me to get lots of immature eggs. 24 follicles in the mature range. 1 23, 2 22, 4 21, 1 20, 4 19, 2 18, 3 17, 2 16, 3 15, 2 14. I expect 7-10 to fertilize with ICSI and 3 blastocysts on day 5.

  • @businesswife you took the words right out of my mouth. After not responding as well as my doctor hoped yesterday and us being MFI, it really hit me that just because we know that there's an issue on his side doesn't guarantee I'll respond to meds. We up'd my dosing from 125 to 375 so I'm hoping to see a jump but what if there's not? What if I just don't respond? Does that take away our best option of having a family? I haven't let myself dwell too much in the questions because that's what got me in trouble before starting IVF and caused many a panic attack. The shots are nothing to me, I can take those any day over the worrying about the cycle, if it's going to be delayed, if I'm going to respond. It's so taxing mentally. Just know you're so not alone. But I do feel like (from an outside perspective) that you still have a really good shot at getting some more embies this next cycle and it's more than what you started with! I think once you get the meds you'll feel a bit better. I know that once I started meds and got going the worry ceased because I was in the action part of the process. You got this! 

    @rainbows2018 sorry for the disappointing report. Just remember that quality over quantity. Easier said than done, I know, but youv'e still got some times for those follies to grow! I was measuring the same yesterday (day 5 of stims and measuring 7 and 8) and it's hard not to freak out but I also hoping that the next few days they'll take off. Keep your chin up!

    @sunnyrain2 yay so glad LH dropped! Glad you're going in with good expectations, fingers crossed that they get exceeded! 

    @DecemberDoll27 how'd this morning go? Praying hard for a healthy retrieval!

  • @artemis618 thanks for explaining your history. I'm about to turn 39 on Friday and if I could get 5 blasts from one cycle I would probably think of testing in your position. However here in Germany PGS is not allowed with edical reason - eg a lot of losses or *TW an existing child with a chromosome problem *end TW. So I really hope we don't get to that stage. Not having the option is frustrating but also removes one decision factor too. 

    @businesswife great news that the insurance is through! And yes nothing is guaranteed, but I think you are doing all you can. 

    @rainbows2018 12 is still good. And if they grow slowly but you get good quality it will be worth it. Don't give up on them yet. And binge watching Game of Thrones in bed sounds like an awesome plan.

    @sunnyrain2 great news that your LH is lower and you have the go to trigger tonight! Fx the OHSS stays away!

    @loverin fx the increased dose kick starts your response 

    @decemberdoll27 sending you all the best wishes for a fast recovery from ER

    AFM just finished my 4th night of injections, still not feeling any effects so hoping there is something going on in my ovaries... latest will find out on Friday morning!

  • Well just had some disappointing news. My E2 is at 4300 today (it was 2500 yesterday) not surprising since I have a lot of mature follicles. My office wants me to trigger with Lupron and do a freeze all. My last antagonist cycle I also triggered with Lupron (E2 over 5600) but did a successful fresh transfer. But that was with a different clinic. In addition my P4 is at 1.5 and per the nurse there have been studies showing over 1 has lower implantation rates which is another reason to do a freeze all. 

    Overall I'm disappointed but have had friends hospitalized with OHSS and definitely don't want to go through that.

  • BusinessWife All the "what ifs" are the worst. Just think, you might not need all those embryos. It only takes one. If you want a bigger reserve then go for it. Then later down the road you won't think about the "what if I did another retrieval." sunnyrain2 is right though, the hardest part is we have very little control over results. Congrats on the insurance recovery!

    sunnyrain2 Sorry about your news. That's frustrating for sure. I had to switch from fresh to frozen. There are some benefits to frozen. Some studies show that it's good for your body to get a little break from stims before transfer.

  • @sunnyrain2 I'm so sorry! I know that's not what you were expecting or planning on so it'll of course be an adjustment to accept the new approach. But like you said, OHSS is not something you want!

    TTC since 2012 | Unexplained Infertility -- Sept 2017 found cyst seemingly confirming previously suspected endometriosis | IVF Sept/Oct 2017 Negative | FET scheduled early December

  • @JaeJayStark. Aw, yeah, no we are planning to transfer all we get.  We always wanted a big family and we are Catholic so we are very much, "no embies left behind!"  (Not that the Church officially "approves" any form of ART whatsover.)  So hopefully I get more or less a similar response to last time, nothing too crazy, and we end up with at least three outside squisheez. ;)

    Fx for a great beta tomorrow!!!! ❤

  • Last night was my first night of higher doses and I was great all of today until about 3 hours ago when I got up from sitting and couldn't walk straight. Super dizziness out of no where! Anyone else had this issue?
    Me & DH: 28  |  TTC since May 2016  |  DH: Morphology 0%  |  2 IUI's with Clomid - BFN  |  IVF ICSI Sept. 2017
  • @loverin I got super dizzy the first night of stims. I think that's normal with the meds especially if you're on a higher dose. 

    @sunnyrain2 I'm not sure what those #s mean but FET sound like a better option. My MDs office doesn't do any fresh transfers bc the success rate is much higher with frozen. Plus anything you can do to avoid Ohss. GL Fx for you! 
    BusinessWifeemmasemmadiratJaeJayStark
  • Baseline Update:  uhm, okay so there was a 17mm folli leftover from my last cycle.  Doctor unphased.  "Doesn't matter."  Uhm... the guy missed one???  Ooookay.  And a 12mm hemorrhagic cyst which also, "doesn't matter."  If you say so, Doctor!  But then my AFC was 12R+9L=21 under 10mm, (not counting the stray 17mm).  So at least whatever the details, it sounds like we are cleared to start pending bloodwork, for my official doses etc.

  • Great job @DecemberDoll27 !!!  Fx for great reports ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

    Turns out, it's just a folli that refilled after retrieval, no eggie inside!  Phew!  I guess these things happen, but estrogen was nice and low at 33, progesterone at 0.5, so we are good to go! First dose of stimms tonight!

    @BusinessWife What a relief! I was prepared to be furious on your behalf!

    Afm -- cd1 here so I continue estrogen priming two more days and start stims on Saturday! Freaking out!
