Re: Let's start again here!

  • I did HSG. Turned out that I had a blocked tube so I'm glad I had it done 1st. The pain about an hour after the test was terrible. I found out after that pain is worse if a tube is blocked.

    Yeah that's where we are at too.  I know it's expensive and my health insurance has a high deductible, so I know it'd cost me a lot.  I'm so confused at how some docs can be so conservative while others are not.  I think we'll chance it with a few tries first. Thx!

    My wife and I have conceived a babe with my body and frozen donor sperm through IUI, with medication support (clomid, ovidrel, and injections of progesterone)

    IUI #1, #2, and #3: Dec 2017, Jan 2018, and Feb 2018 - all BFN
    HSG Test: April 2018 - all clear!
    IUI #4: April 15/16, 2018 - BFP!! EDD: Jan 7, 2019

  • @lazyornghousecat ; I completely understand - I need some type of ping notification or something. At this point if the next round doesn't work we should try the test since I should be at my max for the year. 
  • Hi all—partner is 7.5 weeks pregnant, IVF after many unsuccessful IUI’s. Glad to find this forum—we have close queer parenting friends but none living near us right now. In process of finding an OB.

  • Hi. I don't know if anyone is still around but I'm new here and was hoping to connect. 

    We just had our first appointment a couple of weeks ago and have a follow up next week. We are hoping to do reciprocal IVF but we are at the very beginning stages.

  • Status: I'm 9w4d, thanks to medicated IUI.

    What is happening this week? Nauseous, and trying to connect with other LGBT parents.

    Any lgbt questions, advice, problems, etc? So many. Too many to list.

    Gtky: What is your favorite TV series? Of all time, Buffy. Currently, Call the Midwife. 

    Anyone else here? Hi @Kenneylynn3! Congrats on your rainbow baby!

    @GeeUnit77 We wanted to do reciprocal IVF, but couldn't afford it, and in addition my wife's eggs were too old. She seems excited regardless, but I do think her family would have felt more connected if we had both been biologically related. As it is, I'm dreading telling them. Let us know if you have questions, we can try our best. I got some good info about IVF stalking the Infertility thread in the TTGP board. They talk about all the medications, each step of the procedure, and their outcomes over there.

  • I'm excited to see babies on their way on this message board!!!

    I'm so sorry I've been out of touch for so long. Mine was born March 24. She was breach which required a cesarean, but whatever.

    Pic in the spoiler - I don't know if LGBT is genetic, but we took her out for dinner and she flirted all night with a table of 6 lesbians(we know some of them)! :D  She was showing off her new toy, "talking" non stop, smiling... 

    Inside, I was like, "That's my kiddo!" 

    Hope everyone is happy and healthy. xoxo
