~~Weekly 3T Check-In~~ — The Bump
Trouble TTC

~~Weekly 3T Check-In~~

Posting early because I'm about to leave for the day and I'm not sure what time I'll be back :)

Welcome to the weekly 3T check-in! This post is the place to give us your updates so we can cheer you on. Tell us where you are in your cycle, what appointments you've had and what you found out, what treatments or procedures you've had, when your beta or POAS day is, etc.

If you would like to be added, please respond here or PM me with answers to the following questions (if you are already added, no need to answer everything again :).

1) What is your name (if you want to share)?

2) When did you start TTC?

3) What is your diagnosis, if you have one?

4) What treatments have you done?

If any information I have listed needs changed or if you want anything added or if you were previously listed in the ?No Diagnosis Yet? section and now have one, please be sure to let me know so I can update. And if you haven't yet given me your TTC start date, let me know that too ? it'll be a huge help so I don't have to update everyone's cycle numbers each week :) Good luck, everyone!!

QOTW: What are you doing for Memorial Day?

Success Stories:

Congratulations girls! You give us all hope.

Re: ~~Weekly 3T Check-In~~

  • My CD15 u/s is on Wednesday so I'm hoping for a good report.

    QOTW: We had my family over yesterday to cook out. My 8yo nephew asked me why we didn't have any kids yet. Sad

  • I'm waiting for my fert report today (they said they call between 3:30 and 6).  I think I may go over a friend's to hang by the pool. 

    QOTW:  Well, my transfer is tomorrow, on Memorial Day.  :) We have a cookout after that. 

    Have a great holiday, everyone!

    It took 5 failed IUIs and a failed IVF, but our FET worked!
    My pregnancy after Infertility Blog
    Our baby girl was born on April 27, 2011!
  • QOTW: I don't know that we're doing anything except hanging around the house. I had wanted to go spend the day at the beach until I realized it would probably be super crowded. I'm still secretly hoping DH will have a pool set up when I get home today (He mentioned something about it last night)

    UPDATE: My chart says I'm 12dpo, but yesterday was a BFN. I'm still not convinced I o'd (as usual). I had my b/w drawn last week for the tumor testing, but when I called for the results, I was promptly transferred to the wrong extention and the voicemail immediately picked up. I haven't called back, because I don't know what their weekend hours are, or even if they'll answer the phone on the weekend. I'm not liking the office staff at the RE's...it seems to be extremely hard to get any info out of them. (It took close to a month to get DH's SA results). If the b/w comes back ok, I'll be taking Clomid 100 mg CD2-9 probably with IUI.

  • I started 150mg of Clomid last night. I'm not holding out much hope that it will do anything though. The good news is that if I'm not responding by my first follie check on Friday the RE is going to start me on something right away. We're not going to wait until the cycle ends.

    QOTW: We don't celebrate Memorial Day in Canada.

  • I'm 12dpo on an unmedicated cycle and against my better judgment, my hopes are sky-high right now.  My temps have never been so high before.  And I've been feeling a bit crampy and gassy the last couple of days.  Both things that don't normally happen - not that that means anything.  I promised DH I wouldn't test until Tuesday.

    QOTW: We are heading out to a BBQ at a friend's parents' house.  Thought we were leaving 30 minutes ago but DH is taking his sweet old time.


    TTC #1 since April, 2007
    12/2009 ~ Clomid + IUI = BFP ~ natural m/c 6w0d
    2/2010 ~ 3/2010 ~ 4/2010 ~ Clomid + IUI = BFN
    8/2010 ~ IVF = BFP
  • Did Clomid 3-7, go in Wednesday--cd14--for u/s and hopefully the IUI unless I get a positive OPK before then (which I'm really hoping I do!) 

    Tomorrow--no big plans.  It's supposed to thunderstorm in the afternoon which I actually wouldn't mind.  Tonight my parents are coming over for a bbq though.  DH and I got all the patio furniture out, and I'm about to head back outside to plant some flowers.

    Mr. & Mrs. UMich! July 2006! :-)
    DX: High FSH/DOR
    It took 44 cycles, just over 3 years, 6 failed IUI's in MI, and 1 round of IVF at CCRM to get our BFP!

  • Update: I'm 9DPO of my first clomid cycle and am not holding out too much hope.First cycle I havent even had the desire to pee on anything at a ridiculously early time frame.  Just looking forward to the end of June and my RE appointment.

    QOTW: We spent yesterday BBQing with good friends and being outside. Today we are having dinner with another set of friends and just relaxing :)

  • This last miscarriage is apparently ectopic. I had the mtx injection on Thursday. Hopefully it works, or I will have to have surgery. I go back Thursday to check my level. No ttc for 3 months. :(

    QOTW: Avoiding people. I can't drink or really do much of anything.

    it's that in each life some rain falls but you also get some sun.

  • QOTW: I will be flying to Orlando, then driving to the beach! 

    Update: I should get AF right after my vacation around the 12th or so and then I will start my injectables for my first clomid cycle. I am very excited and very scared. That is if I didn't get pregnant this cycle on our natural TI!

    GL to everyone that has anything coming up!   

    Edit: OMG Gymn GL I just saw your chart! I am excited for you, it would be awesome to get a BFP!!!  

  • Nothing new to report on the TTC front....still just humping and hoping until we start acupuncture in the fall!

    QOTW: Nothing special...just working on homework for my summer classes and taking advantage of the sales going on at the outlets in the next town! I hope everyone is having a wonderful long weekend!

    Popping in quickly to say hello -  one more week of this crazy work schedule but I did manage to make it home this weekend (hopefully while ovulating!).   

    No memorial day in Canada - I will of course be working my 40th day in a row - sigh

    No update on the TTC front, this is my testing cycle.

    QOTW:  Not too much, we played golf today and I'm going to visit my grandpa's grave tomorrow. He doesn't have a headstone yet, so we're taking a flag and some flowers.


    3 years ttc #1 with Stage 3 endo, cysts, DOR and mild MFI. Lap in June 2011, followed by High Dose Lupron, continuous BCP, acupuncture, and herbal supplements
    Lucky cycle 38 - Nov. 2011 IUI #2 - Follistim + Trigger =BFP! 11/19~Beta #1=114, 11/21~Beta #2=280, 11/29~Beta #3=7770, 12/6 - We have a heartbeat!

  • Update: Absolutely nothing!

    QOTD: Lunch with a friend, teaching a few lessons.

  • Update:  4 DPO today.  Timing was really perfect, but, I try not to get my hopes up very much.

    QOTW:  We've been at the same friend's house all weekend.  DH is in a golf tournament tomorrow morning, but, once he's done, we'll go back to our friend's house for the third day in a row.  Thank goodness they enjoy hosting!

  • Update: I'm testing tomorrow. (two weeks after possible ovulation pain. And because I'm starting Adipex on Tuesday to lose this weight.


    QOTW: What are you doing for Memorial Day?


  • Update:  Currently in the 2WW of trying naturally (100% it is not going to happen that way for us). 

    One Month from today, our insurance switches over and the insurance woman at my RE's office will send the paperwork for IVF.  She thinks they will make us do an IUI first (which my RE doesn't think will work for us), and then, hopefully, we can move onto IVF. . .

    QOTD:  We spent Friday - Sunday on Cape Cod at DH's parents house.  We drove back up to Boston last night for a birthday party.  Today, we are going to the beach in our town.  We got beautiful weather this weekend!

    Update: Nothing new here, tested this morning like an idiot an BFN. We will do one more cycle and then head back to the RE to resume testing in July. I am also thinking about finding a different RE since I didn't care for the first so much.

    Memorial Day plans: today we are doing a bit of work on our kitchen cabinets and then hoping to relax and enjoy the day off!

    Have a great day ladies:)

    QOTW: Going to a memorial cook out with friends.

    Glowconsin Getaway.

  • Update: Since I wasn't charting, my best guess is that I am 6 DPO today - and I have nothing notable to report.  I am not driving myself crazy this cycle because I was thinking we would have to wait another to start TTC again because of my levels taking their time dropping.  I am not really expecting anything to happen this cycle. 

    QOTW:  We are havng my parents over for a cook out today.  Yesterday we spent ALL day with DH's family at his niece's dance recital and his cousin's graduation party.

    Good luck to everyone!  Hope everyone is having a good long weekend.

    We went to a BBQ Sunday but have no plans for today.  Maybe just dinner out or something.

  • Sorry for the delay... we were out of town.

    Update: I thought I O'd on CD14 since FF gave me CHs, but then FF took them away when I had a nasty temp drop so now we are probably out of luck.  We went to DH's parents last weekend and I didn't take OPKs so no OPK last Saturday.  This weekend we were back at DH's parents since they live in Indiana and we always go to the Indy 500.  I took OPKs with me this weekend and all negative.  Oye... I was hoping this cycle would be somewhat normal like the last several, but it looks like that isn't the case.  Oh well, looks like IVF here we come.

    Weekend plans: We went to the Indy 500 and sweated our arses off yesterday.  Today, back home and doing laundry.  Also need to finish planning activites on Oahu for our upcoming vacation.

    Update:  I am waiting for the go ahead to start lupron for my FET. I'm not using BCP this time and since I have PCOS and don't ovulate, it's hard to say when I will start. I have b/w & u/s weekly until My RE says I'm ready.

    QOTD: Ha! The weekend is almost over, but Saturday I went to a BBQ and played bocce ball. Yesterday I went to my parents and fished in their little pond. I caught a 2 foot catfish!
