Re: July 2018 IVF

  • @anared wow!!! 29 follicles!! That’s great!! Let USB’s know how your fertilization report goes if you hear back! I had 24 and had mild/moderate OHSS but didn’t take any meds... just drank TONS AND TONS of Gatorade! It seemed like it lasted forever! Hopefully insurance will come through ok because seriously... what an annoying extra expense! Take time to rest up for sure!! I know it’s hard being away from students but health first!! Thinking about you!!

  • @anared congratulations on 29 follicles yes that’s a lot, even I had 24 and had ohss which was very painful. My doctor gave me medicines(injections) for free when insurance was giving trouble I later ordered  the medicines to them when medicines got authorized by insurance. May u can try that with ur clinic ? 

    Yes kids will be happy to see you back when u return but health first 
  • Yeah for 29 follicles!!  That is great!!  Sorry to hear you are feeling crummy though.  Fingers crossed that insurance will come through and that you get to feeling better soon!  I agree with @bkatp and  @kbenner2, your health comes first.  Make sure you take the time you need.  Keep us posted!
    - August 2013 - December 2013 3 rounds Clomid 
    - February 2014 - DH diagnosed with bilateral absence of vasdeferens, so on to IVF with ICSI.
    - November 2014 - First IVF round/retrieval.  From that we ended up with 12, day 3 embryos.  Fresh transfer - chemical pregnancy
    - February 2015 - 1st FET - BFN
    - Dec 2015 - 2nd FET  - BFN
    - Dec 2016 - 3rd FET - Added endo scratch, endometrial HCG, and resistant uterine protocol - BFN 
    - Dec 2017 - Intra uterine scope and biopsy - Found nothing that could be causing us not to concieve
    - Jan 2018 - ERA- Found I was post receptive and we needed 12 less hours of progesterone before transfer
    - February 2018 - 4th FET - because of needing to mimic ERA cycle, had to thaw all 4 remaining embryos to day 5.  In that process 3 of the embryos arrested and the remaining embryo was very poor quality.  We weren't too surprised when that also ended in a BFN. 
    - July 2018 - Full IVF round with PGS testing.  18 retrieved, 12 mature, 5 made it to day 5 testing day, 2 Normal.
    -October 2018 - 5th FET with a good quality PGS normal embryo with altered ERA transfer timing - BFN

  • Yay! on the 29 follicles! I had 33 and yes OHSS is not a joke! drink a lot of gatorades it helped me a lot and remind me again, will you be doing a fresh transfer? and agree with the ladies your health comes 1st! you have to take care of that body that will be hosting your own child! so take care of it! sending you hugs and love! 
  • Thanks for the tips ladies! the symptoms are getting better. I have an appointment tomorrow with my RE. I haven't seen RE since the consultation so I am eager to talk about everything! the cycle, follicles, embryos, my recovery, FET, Beta2, lovenox, all that. 

    How is everyone doing this weekend? 
  • @anared so glad you are starting to feel better!  How did your appointment go?

    And good from my end!  Started Lupron injections last Friday.  Feels good to be moving forward!

  • @anared how did your appointment with RE go.
    @katie35 good luck with tests 
  • @anared sorry to hear about the OHSS, hopefully you are feeling a little better. When do you get an update on the embies? I think you are doing PGS testing?
  • @katie35 @mackorori @bkatp thanks for checking in! the appointment went well but RE suggested I take a few cycles off, so maybe looking at a February FET. I am waiting on the final PGS results and was hoping to get it today but the genetics lab said they weren't ready, so possibly Wednesday I will have the results. 

    I hope everyone has a peaceful and relaxing holiday! xox
  • Hi everyone! I got my final results. We had 29 retrieved, 20 fertilized and 10 day 5.  From that 3 came back normal with 1 mosaic. I don't know the grading of the embryos, I guess they will go over it when it comes time for the FET. I am definitely happy that we have better results than the last cycle. However, with this new Beta 2 issue, I do wish I had a few more embryos just as a cushion, especially after how the last cycle went. 

    How is everyone else doing this week?
  • @anared that sounds like great report, congratulations!!! Excited to hear about your next steps.

    AFM...the holidays were a bit tough but we’re doing OK. Waiting on AF, then a hysteroscopy to check for scarring from D&E, then meet with RE to go over the options.

    Hope that you all had a nice holidays!!
  • @anared congratulations on wonderful report. 3 normal and 1 mosaic from PGS testing is a great turnout. Hope everything goes well with the FET now that u will take levonox or aspirin. 

    @mackorori Good to know u are getting ready to start new cycle are you also looking a Feb or March FET ?
  • @bktap my RE does a 6 week medication cycle for FET starting CD1, so with the hysteroscopy this cycle the earliest is March FET. That assumes all looks AOK and we are emotionally ready, which I feel like we will be. How are things for you? Hopefully all is going well with the PG.
  • @anared Congrats on the 3 normals and 1 mosaic!  That is a great turnout!  When are you planning for FET?  Keep us posted!

    @mackorori glad to hear you guys are feeling up to moving forward.  Fingers crossed that everything with the hysteroscopy looks good and that you are clear to move forward with FET when you are ready.  

    AFM, still moving forward with the protocol.  I have an US tomorrow for lining check and first biopsy should be either Friday or Saturday.  Hopefully results don't take too awful long to come back!

    I hope everyone had a good holiday and here's to 2019!

  • @katie35 thank you! good luck at your US appointment tomorrow! how long did they say the results will take to come back after the biopsy?

    @bkatp thank you! how are you coming along? 

    @mackorori thank you! glad to hear you are doing better. Fingers crossed everything will be good for you to move forward with a March FET.

    Happy New Year to everyone. 

    @katie35 did you get your results back 

    @mackorori hoping all goes well with tests and FET protocol. Will keep you in my thoughts. Good luck 

    @anared are you getting ready for feb FET. Do you start medicines in January? 

    I am doing well so far. Have 20 week anatomy scan next week. Hoping it goes well, planning to announce to family if the scan goes well 
  • @bkatp happy to hear things are going well and good luck with the anatomy scan

    @babydust2507 thank you! how are things going for you?

    @bkatp the plan is a February FET if everything looks good at the baseline. I just have to wait for my next period. Good luck on your scan this week! 
  • We had our first biopsy this morning.  We have one more biopsy on Monday the 14th.  I found out today that Yale won't process the specimens until they have both of them, then the results will take two weeks from there.  So no results until close to the end of January  :# Hopefully the time will go fast!

    @bkatp good luck at your anatomy scan.  Let us know how it goes!

  • @katie35 I’m so glad you’re getting the biopsies started. Hopefully January flies by so you can get your results back.

    @bkatp thinking about you as you approach your anatomy scan! What an exciting milestone! 

    @anared good luck with your upcoming FET. Here’s to 2019 being the lucky year. Will be thinking about you lots as you begin meds and start your protocol. 

    @mackorori so glad you are moving ahead. I’m hopung your hysteroscopy goes well and March gets here before you know it!

  • @anared I'm doing ok, i got a really bad cold, coughing all day and nights, it's getting better though. I'm lil nervous since I don't get those regular check up with OB and waiting 4 weeks it's like eternity! my next appt is next week on the 18 and if everything goes well I'm planing on tell my family and extended family and friends on both side, as well as my job, we made a small announcement on xmas to my husband family ( just MIL, SIL and his aunt)
    @bkatp GL on your next appt!
    @katie35 I know how crazy a wait can be, so I'm sending you love, peace, and positive vibes that this wait goes by fast!
  • @katie35 all the waiting...but hopefully it gives more insight into what’s going on. Looking forward to hearing your updates later in the month.

    @babydust2507 good luck with your appointment next week

    Speaking of waiting...six weeks later my HCG is still at 10. Slowly declining but they want it to be back to zero (technically less than 5) before doing the hysteroscopy. This process just teaches me patience I guess.
  • @babydust2507 good luck on your next OB visit! 4 weeks is a really long time- especially when you are used to being seen more often. I hope you are feeling better! 

    @katie35 good luck on your biopsy next week! Hopefully January flies, I am excited for you to get results. 

    @kbenner2 thank you! how is everything going?

    @bkatp how did your scan go?

    @mackorori I am sorry this process is so long, the waiting is tough! I am hoping things will start to move along faster!
