If you are thinking about asking to join this group (PM me please) ?please read:

This is an Advanced TTTC group those who have been trying 3+ years and/or have multiple failed IUI?s /IVFs, etc. I just ask that everyone please use good judgment when asking to join...in other words, if you are still in the IUI stage or have been on this journey less than two years, this is probably not the group for you.

There is no doubt that this whole TTTC process is painful, but I also do believe that there is a very special kind of support that this specific group can offer to each other, and it is intended as a "safe haven" for those of us who are in that bottom 1% of the bottom 1%.

Thank you!

It's been a long journey. TTC since 9/06. multiple IUI's and IVF's and 4 m/c's. IVF#3 = BFP, twins, induced at 34w6d due to baby b passing away (no explanation). Delivered on 35w1d, Baby A - baby girl, and Baby B - baby boy, our little angel.

    CONGRATULATIONS to?  YAY!  patchen (BFP),  Trippleb (+ beta),

    BIG ((((Hugs)))) to Butterfly843 (BFN), Trippleb (low beta), -- hugs to you both!!! 

    Been sort of MIA the last few weeks (sorry girls!)... work has been crazy, but I just finished BCP on Sunday.  AF arrived yesterday, in for baseline monitoring this morning and will hopefully (fingers crossed) will start stims for IVF #4.2 this evening. 

    Congrats to all the BFP's, hugs to all the BFN's and PPV's to all those cycling right now. 

    Ways to decompress -- spend time with my friends/family, relax at home doing nothing but sitting on the couch (this rarely occurs), or read a book. 

    Many failed clomid, injectible and IVF cycles.
    3 Fresh IVF cycles in 2010 - 1 BFN, 1 ectopic, 1 m/c at 8 weeks

    QOTD:   Vacations definitely help, but I can't take them as often as I get stressed or I would be on one long vacation!  Reading books and watching mindless TV helps too!  Getting together with family also helps!

    Update:  I'm 3dpER.  I should be getting a call this afternoon telling me what time to come in for my ET on Saturday.  I should also get an update on my embies and see how many made it to be biopsied today.  I'm really nervous.

    I love to read, knit, and scrapbook

     


  • Thanks ladies!  GL and lots of congrats hugs and I'm sorry hugs to everyone else too! 

    Update:  I'm remarkably calm today.  Who knows?  In my heart of hearts though, I think its a BFFN, so I'm prepared when the call comes in.  I have absolutely zero symptoms (and I know that doesn't mean anything) but after 2 years of cycles and never getting a BFP, you just start to expect it will always be bad news.

    QOTD - Shopping!!!!  Definitely Shopping!  I'm actually worried about how much money I may spend this weekend trying to cheer myself up.

    TTC since April 2009 dx = PCOS; TTC History for DS - A FET miracle after 7 IUIs; 2 fresh transfers, and 1 other FET resulted in BFNs. Hoping and Praying for baby #2: Cycle 1 - FET; November 2012 BFN Next Steps - who knows? Lilypie Second Birthday tickers
  • updated update, I have a plan!

    tomorrow, redo cultures with my GYN
    3.15 SIS, mock transfer, repeat AMH, and IVF class
    end of month laproscopy and coculture biopsy

    Then based on all the diagnostics, mostly the lap, we'll put together a protocol, either EPP or MDLF. Stims start May.

    It's not as soon as I'd like, but I'm really glad to go through with this IVF with everything scrutinized. To be honest, I'm freaked out going 4 months between IVFs at my age, but I also know it's the best step for us.

  • Good luck and PPVs to bella, steveandkim, patchen, jenbabe, trippleb, abble, and psychmuse!  Congrats to patchen and trippleb!  Big hugs to butterfly and trippleb!

    Update: I have my first u/s tomorrow morning at 9am.  On my birthday.  It's either going to be the best or worst birthday ever.  I'm very nervous.  Hoping for good news!  (side note: I'm not sure when I should stop posting here.  I'm thinking after this u/s.  I don't want to be annoying with updates.)

    QOTD: Get lost in a good movie, listen to music, or take a drive.
