IF Testing / Treatment w/o 8/5 — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

IF Testing / Treatment w/o 8/5

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 is your favorite part/aspect/finishing touch/feature/quality/amenity about/in your home? It could be the ultimate reason you bought your home or something that came about after living there for years.

  • @inthewoods23 Thank you! I hope your hysteroscopy and polypectomy go well tomorrow. And you are so close to your FET, so exciting!

    @ruby696 Thanks! Yay for IVF buddies! I'll admit I am a little scared about the stims too. I had to watch a bunch of videos on mixing the meds and stuff and it was a little overwhelming compared to just doing oral meds or the Gonal F and Trigger. But we got this!

    @hanshotfirst77 I’m glad moving went well! That’s so exciting that everything is starting for IVF! Hope your sono goes well! 

    @inthewoods23 I hope your procedure goes well tomorrow! My favorite place about your house is your amazing deck + furniture  :D 

    @ruby696 I’m glad everything is on track for this month! Hopefully the side effects from the stims aren’t too too bad. 

    @emeraldduchess that’s great you were able to have such an honest conversation with your cousin. It’s so nice to know we aren’t alone!

    @hanshotfirst77 how exciting that you’ll be getting your protocol and meds this week!  And an end of the month retrieval… wow!

     

    @inthewoods23 good luck with the surgery tomorrow!  Hopefully they get it all cleaned out and make your uterus most receptive for your September transfer!  Also, the Fiesta Bath sounds fabulous haha

     

    @ruby696 you and hanshotfirst77 are going to be shot buddies!  I’m so excited for you and I hope that the meds work well and allow a great day 3 transfer!  Also, I love an open kitchen

     

    @emeraldduchess I’m glad you had a good weekend even with the shower going on.  And omg, progesterone always makes me feel like Violet from Willy Wonka and that I should be rolling around

     

    @b_1029 how long ago was your trigger?  Also, I love that your house is so old and has some of the old style but mixed with new.  When we had cable, I used to enjoy watching Rehab Addict and watch her keep the old flair while making it new.

    @inthewoods23 I hope everything goes smoothly for you tomorrow! I'll be thinking about you :)

    @emeraldduchess I'm so glad you had that heart to heart with your cousin <3 

    @b_1029 the wedding weekend sounds fun!!  And isn't that the truth about everything always breaking in a house?! The work is never finished - but you're right... it's nice to remember what you love about it!

    @mokay19 your house sounds like it will be a dream!!

  • @mokay19 I'm not temping, and I had a decent amount of travel last month so I couldn't even really use OPKs as much as I wanted to.  When I move forward with the IUI's I will be getting O confirmed by my doctor though.

  • @emeraldduchess Fx the progesterone does the trick even if the side effects can be less than desirable. And I'm so glad you had a nice heart to heart with your cousin!

    @b_1029 That's so cool your house still has some of that older flair. Fx for you this cycle!

    @mokay19 So exciting about starting to pack and get ready for your new house! It sounds awesome! Fx for this next cycle and IVF!

    @kpearse99 Long cycles can be so frustrating. My cycles are so long and unpredictable I typically need Provera to start it. Fx she comes in time for you to do the testing tomorrow!

  • @hanshotfirst77 soooo happy for you that the ball is rolling on IVF! I'm glad that the move went well and that you love your new house. :)

    @inthewoods23 good luck with your surgery tomorrow! I hope everything goes smoothly. We'll all be thinking of you!


    @ruby696 eeek! Looks like it's full-steam ahead for you! FX that you react well to the stims with minimal side effects. 

    @b_1029 so you're having fun peeing on sticks to test out the trigger? Hehehe. Don't know why that made me giggle so much!

    @mokay19 Hope your next cycle starts soon so you can start moving forward. That's awesome about your dream home becoming a reality!

    @kpearse99 ugh, I am so sorry for the frustrating cycle. It sucks when AF takes her time and it messes with your plans for blood work.

  • @misshelen86 Fx for all your testing/results!

    @jennifer_louise Thank you! And it's getting there. It's amazing how much stuff there is. I took off work 2 days before the move and 2 days after and i really felt like I needed more time. But I've been trying to save it for IVF stuff. So the house has boxes everywhere. I'm hoping I will do a better job of unpacking than I have previously living in apartments. I think my last move I still had stuff in boxes from the last one at the time of this move lol. 

    I hope this week is better for you and you have a great vacation!

  • @emeraldduchess I'm in MN with friends and family! It's been great so far--the second half of the week we're going camping so I have to enjoy sleeping in a bed while I still can!

    @hanshotfirst77 Omg moving and unpacking is the worst. We moved two years ago and likewise still have unpacked boxes. I guess that means whatever's in there can't be too important, right? 😬
    shamrocandrollemeraldduchessBusinessWife
  • @inthewoods23 your DH is so sweet! I think this experience is very eye-opening for the men in our lives because our treatment is much more invasive (in most cases). I'm pretty sure my DH is at the point where if it were an option for HIM to carry the baby, he would.

    @bobbyflies2020 for your situation, I would be curious what they think the success chances are with IUI after surgery... like how bad the morph is.  And for IVF, a lot of my questions were on cost since we're OOP, timing (like if they only cycled at certain times), what precautions would be taken to avoid OHSS (I have a lot of follicles with PCOS), fresh vs frozen, tested vs untested embryos, transferring 1 vs 2, and that's all I can think of right now.
    I haven't done PGS, but my clinic is $3,200 plus $200 per embryo tested.  I have a friend that it was $3,600 for up to 5 embryos.

    @bobbyflies2020 When is your appointment? I’m not sure what questions to ask, although I agree with @mokay19 that I would want to know what they think the chances of a successful IUI are with your H’s morph. I hope you are able to come up with a plan that works for you!

  • @bobbyflies2020 I had to think about what f+t was haha.

    I think our PGT-A testing was like $2800 OOP for up to 8 embryos, and there's a $300 charge just for shipping the embryos to them or something. I can't remember what, I'd have to check the email. Additional embyros, if you have more than 8, are an additional $250 to test. Our clinic used CooperGenomics (not that you're allowed to shop around for that, I think you have to use what the clinic uses).

    @kpearse99 YAY for AF arriving!! FX they get you in tomorrow! Woot, woot. Also, benched until I get surgery, to not risk any chance of preterm/breech birth due to the septum. Even though my RE implied that it would never happen RN with my husbands sperm morphology. 🤷

    Mondays are too overwhelming! Just sending out a couple quick time sensitive messages...

    @inthewoods23 GL tomorrow! I’m glad your husband is showing you all the mushy lovey feelings and showing you that you come first ❤️. For my lap, apparently as soon as I came to, I was asking for my husband, and when someone went to update him when I was out of surgery, he immediately asked when he could see me. And then we were reunited and he put my wedding ring back on. (I had to remove all jewelry prior to surgery.) And then the nurse told me to go try to pee. 😆 At least there are some good moments on this super hard road! 

    @emeraldduchess I don’t know how you are able to hold out on testing! I’m crossing fingers and toes for you!!

    @kpearse99 I hope the timing works out!!

    @kpearse99 do you normally ovulate in that timeframe? You should at least be able to get a mid-cycle monitoring appointment in before then and hopefully an IUI done before you leave! Orrrrrr, when I take Letrozole, I don’t ovulate until CD20 so maybe yours will hold off until you get back?! Good luck!
