IF Testing and Treatment - week of 05/21 — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

IF Testing and Treatment - week of 05/21

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. Treat this as an ongoing conversation. 

Diagnosis (if you've been): 

Status (WTO/TWW/TTA):

What are you doing this cycle? (Testing? Treatment?): 

How are things going?: 

Any questions?:

GTKY: What’s your most embarrassing wardrobe fail?

  • @beachbunnyxo123 oh I’m so glad they could get the catheter in so easily! After all the stress around that (six months or so ago now??? Omg is it already that long ago???) before it’s so good that you don’t need to worry about that part too on top of everything else.
    I’m supposed to go CD2 for baseline, but there is one day that I can’t do this week so in case that’s CD2 then we’d have to do CD3 baseline. To be honest I’m not expecting them to be able to see anything on the US if the estrogen has made my ovaries half as sleepy as it’s made me. I’m interested how the E2 levels will work as surely some of the estrogen patches will be left in my system so it’s not really a true baseline... I do feel like a walking lab experiment every month!
    And no more fresh transfers is the plan. We want to bank. We need to bank.
    Plus the other part of that plan is to wipe my immune system pretty much out and restart it before the transfer which puts a fresh one out of the question. My RE explained it like if you’ve had your computer on for a while and opened lots of different programs then it’s trying to run everything in the background even if you’re not actively using that program at the time and it slows down and the performance is not as good as it should be. If you completely shut down and restart then you can still reopen whatever programs you need, and any you’ve set up to restart directly from logging in will start themselves again. You don’t lose anything but you get a “cleaner” performance of the programs you need to run. And we want the best possible performance of program “uterine lining supports implantation”!

    @KristoKekerooni Easier said than done to practice what you preach, right?!  The important part is allowing yourself to feel whatever. Remember to do what you need to do to get through this cycle & beyond. Screw what other people expect. 
    KristoKekeroonisuzycupcakenitnat007rallykat14
  • @emmasemm sounds like your doctor has a good plan in place! I’m hoping so hard that this cycle is great for you!

    @jrm_14 when is your beta? Will you test at all? 

    @KristoKekerooni hugs friend. I’m rooting so hard for you! Are you doing the same protocol this cycle? 

    @rallykat14 I’m sorry that I forget but will you get all of the donor eggs or a certain number of them? 

    @darkstar42 that’s a lot of follies! When will you know if they will move forward with this cycle? When are they having you trigger? I was lucky to ever even produce even two follies for an IUI cycle so I can’t relate but I hope it works out for you. 

    @50Wife so hypothetically speaking, if your results were the same as previous cycles would your doc recommend a natural or medicated transfer cycle?

    @AlohaKumu sorry if you’ve mentioned this recently but what is your hysteroscopy to check for?
    darkstar42KristoKekeroonijrm_14rallykat14
  • @emmasemm I hope AF shows up for you quickly! The meds always made me really lethargic, too. I constantly felt like I just did a crazy-hard workout and just wanted to rest. I absolutely love your royal wedding celebration outfit!
    @beachbunnyxo123 I'm sorry to hear that biopsy was so painful for you, but heck yeah that they got it in! I remember what a nightmare it was when they just couldn't do any of the testing for you.
    @jrm_14 You have awesome willpower. I'm glad you had a distraction last week to get through the TWW, but I get too impatient to wait every time.
    @KristoKekerooni Man, do I relate to those feelings that nothing will change this time around either. I feel like I'm going through the motions of all the testing and preparation, but there's no light at the end of the tunnel. It's okay that you don't feel into it. And you are absolutely not wrong to want this so badly, even in the face of loss. I'm so hoping that your sweet baby bee is just around the corner for you.
    @rallykat14 I hate that you have to wait yet again during this excruciating process, even if it's great that your donor is doing this again. I hope everything goes perfectly this time around. I'll be thinking of you!
    @darkstar42 Woah! That's a lot of follies. I'm not sure about the sizing issue, but most of my friends who have done this had their REs err on the side of caution when there are so many.
    @50Wife Gosh darn it, I hope this is it for you! It sounds like your doctor has a backup plan, but I really want you to get those receptive results after everything you've been through!

    @emmasemm Wow I can't believe how bad those meds are kicking your ass!! I really hope it means they're working and it's all worth it. Hopefully AF shows soon so you can get this show on the road.
    @beachbunnyxo123 I'm happy things went well today (except for the pain! jeez!) and I'm even more happy that you have a date!!!!! Wahoooooo I am so excited for you!!!
    Also, I'd imagine we would stick with a natural cycle since he knows my lining isn't absorbing the other meds enough to have me fall into that receptive category.  He said he's seeing much better results with the natural FET  in patients who have average 28 day cycles so I just keep hoping I'm not an outlier and what he's been seeing is true with me too! 
    @jrm_14 I hope you enjoyed your weekend with your parents! Good luck this cycle. Order them from Amazon on Thursday so then you can't test until Saturday!
    @KristoKekerooni we will be hopeful for you and you just need to do what you need to in order to protect your heart (and sanity). I really really hope this is it for you  <3
    @rallykat14 Can't wait to hear how this cycle goes for you! I've got everything crossed for you guys!  Do you get 6 eggs again this time (It was 6 before, right?).  And good for you for bailing on the shower! I'm all about doing whatever you need to do.  
    @darkstar42 noooooooo as I was reading I was going to question the size of your follies. I see that you've decided to move forward - did your doc kind of totally leave it up to you? Or suggest moving forward if you're ok with 3 mature?  I hope it all works out for you! And ETA for your IUI?
    @AlohaKumu Getting closer! I hope everything goes well on Friday, good luck!!  Do you have a date for your biopsy? Sorry I feel like you may have mentioned it before...

  • @50Wife As of right now, we are shooting for June 18 for the ERA, with the results expected the following week or so. (I think that's pretty standard based on your experience too, yeah?)

    @AlohaKumu Yea you should go in for bloodwork and a scan before starting the PIO. Should be 10 days or so before your biopsy. I'm assuming the same number of days you did previously. 
    AlohaKumurallykat14
  • @KristoKekerooni Every office makes different recommendations, but mine always instructed me to take it easy the day of the transfer. After that, I was told to "resume normal activity." I think if kayaking and swimming are activities you do on a regular basis, it should be fine.

    @KristoKekerooni I would think you could! I'm no doc but I don't see why not. White water rafting? Maybe not. Kayaking? I'd think you're safe! 
    KristoKekerooni
  • @AlohaKumu , @50Wife , ahhh perfect. I probably won'y kayak will around 4+ DPT, so I don't think it's to close to the day of, since I'll still be in NY for all that. So you think I can swim too, or should I stay in the kayak? 
    It's a pretty lazy river, with only a few rapids every few miles that last a total of two minutes, so I am not worried about it being strenuous. It's really just floating along the whole time.

  • @KristoKekerooni Yeah, my reasoning is the same as yours. The hormone levels definitely gave me a bit more peace of mind moving forward. I'll trigger tonight for a Wednesday morning IUI, so there is a chance of more follies catching up. We'll just have to see what happens! I'm trying my best to stay calm. I have acupuncture tomorrow, so that'll help.
    jrm_14nitnat007KristoKekerooniwabash15
  • @KristoKekerooni my understanding is that as long as your heart rate is not getting up high that light exercise is fine. My doctor would rather me to be active then inactive as long as I’m not taking it too far. I’m glad you have a lot of fun things coming up hopefully that keeps your mind occupied during the TWW. And I will definitely be thinking and praying for you! Can’t believe you’re already getting started, yay! 

    @AlohaKumu that’s what my biopsy today was for, to check for endometritis and inflammation. They did mine in the office but they can also do it under anesthesia during a hysteroscopy. And that’s annoying that they sprung that on you last minute I’m glad you were able to work it out! 

    @50Wife oh I see! That makes sense. I asked about a natural cycle this FET but I guess my last IUI my lining was only a 5.8 at trigger and for my FET it was 8mm so I guess I’m better off medicated

    @darkstar42 Best wishes for the right number of follies to fertilize & implant for your safety & health. 

    @50wife So will your RE have your results before your appt on Friday?  I love reading about your confidence!!  

    @alohakumu That is incredibly irritating when you’re on top of things & they’re last minute. Glad it ended up working a bit better with your schedule, closer to lunch. 

    @beachbunnyxo123 This new RE doesn’t do betas unless there is a +hpt. Idk when I will test. I am attempting to hold ou until at least Thursday (12dpiui).

    @emmasemm What autoimmune issue do you have? To add: Oh I see RA. What is APS they are testing for? It's nice to see some other ladies on here who have autoimmune issues. Do you go through flare ups and remissions too or is RA pretty much all of the time? Nice photo. You look like such a lively girl! I'm sorry that you slept most of your holiday. I know what that's like. It's difficult but it's apparent that your body just needed it. Do you think it is related to your condition? Idk much about RA or if fatigue is a common thing with it. Hopefully all of that rest was the ticket for getting your ovaries to stimulate for you. Hugs to you <3 

    @beachbunnyxo123 Ugh, I'm so sorry that you are going through all of this. Those biopsies are the worst! I don't know why they don't just put us out for all of it. Why have you had to do two hysteroscopies?, if you don't mind me asking. I'm glad you are getting closer to a transfer. Rooting for you! Hang in there. When do you get your biopsy results?

    @jrm_14 I don't think I knew you have an autoimmune disease either! Which do you have? Chances are you prob told me in a pm and I forgot :D Good luck on Thursday, fx! <3 It's great you got to visit with your parents. Do you get to visit with them often? 

    @KristoKekerooni Hugs. You have been through SO much, to say the very least. I know that you are exhausted. Your feelings are not silly, ever. I think that it's okay to not feel hope sometimes and so, we will hope for you. Hugs <3 I'm curious, have you been with the same RE this entire time?

    @rallykat14 Bail away! It's necessary and I'm glad that you are doing what you can to protect your mental health. <3 8 more days! I'm so excited for you. 

    @darkstar42 I fully support your decision to continue. Good thoughts coming your way for Wednesday. I wish that your follies will do what they will do to give you the best chance and that the ones that aren't necessary will diminish. Fx! <3 

    @50Wife When is your transfer scheduled for? So the biopsy can check to see if the uterus will be receptive to implantation? 

    @AlohaKumu Good luck for your appointment on Friday. Hopefully your determination by way of advocating for yourself will free her up to better help those ladies new to it. I'm sorry because I know how frustrating that is. To add: Oh I see they bumped it up so good luck today!

    Ladies, I pray for all of you often. <3 
    People think we become mothers when we give birth but the truth is we become mothers the moment we start calling our babies to us in our thoughts, dreams and prayers. Some paths are short and some are so long that you can easily forget where you were headed.

    How I feel all of the time.

    @jrm_14 Honestly, I'd be shocked if he had my results by Friday - I just feel like it's too soon! And I'm confident for now, whenever that embryo is finally transferred I'm going to be shitting my pants and freaking out the entire time just wondering if what we did was good enough! 
    I mean, I'm more confident because I know the normal FET protocol doesn't work for me. So at least we took that out as an option that wouldn't work.

  • @rallykat14 oh yes that’s right I remember 6 from your first cycle. I’m hoping so very hard for you!!  <3

    @nitnat007 what cycle day was your MRI? Your lining will measure differently depending on where you are at in your cycle so I probably wouldn’t worry too much about that unless they were measuring right at ovulation with the purpose of checking thickness. Are they havin you follow up with an OB? Is that the diagnosis they gave you?

    @madspunk how are you doing friend?

    @suzycupcake I had a hysteroscopy in October because of my difficult IUIs and my doctor couldn’t get a catheter in for my saline sono. At that hysteroscopy he put me under anesthesia and he still couldn’t get the cath in, $3k out of pocket for absolutely nothing. Had to do it again with another surgeon in February, he found a polyp that wasn’t seen on a saline sono so he removed it and he also dilated my cervix to correct my cervical stenosis which was making it difficult and very painful to pass a cath through to my uterus. My biopsy results should be in within about 2 weeks.
