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

  • Options

    Well, AF started full blown today so I guess we are on to the next cycle. Oddly enough, I'm feeling good about it. I mean, I know it could still not work and we'd be that much closer to IVF...but I feel good about the plans we have in place for the next few months. Hopefully we won't have to even get to IVF.

    Oh and I've handled the BFN so much better than the last oh 30 or so.

    QOTW:  My plan was to get married by 23/24 and have our first child at 25/26. I always wanted at least 2 kids, maybe 3 and to adopt either our 3rd or if we had 3 bio children, adopt the 4th. Turned out I didn't get married until a month before I turned 26 so that was out the window anyway. Then IF showed up and plans have been way out the window.

    Plans now are to at least try to have 1 bio child. Hoping if we can finally get pg that the 2nd pg might not be so hard to come by. However, I wanted 3 or 4 years b/w children, so that is going to have to change. Definitely looking more like we might end up with 1 or 2 bio children and maybe end up adopting a sibling set. We'll have to see how much money we have left after dealing with IF. ::sigh::

    Update: Somewhat exciting week with my ER.  I never imagined I would get 23 eggs and have 15 embryos to work with.   I'm just happy this is different than my other two cycles - giving me a bit of hope that things could possibly end differently this time.   I never heard from the embryologist today - so that means we are going ahead with a day 5 on Wed (leap year day!).   I am going to be so anxious to find out how our embies are growing then.  

    QOTW:  I've always wanted two kids - probably two years apart.  Now I'll take whatever I can get - even if that means only one child.

    Sorry about the BFNs/ AF, Zook.

    Update:  Not much here, just waiting to trigger.  

    QOTW:  I wanted to be married by the time I was 25 and have 3-4 kids by the time I was 35.  Instead, I got married when I was 27 and have lost three pregnancies.  While of course we will be thrilled if we only ever have one (big IF, I know), we definitely still want 3-4. We will likely not pursue treatment for another pregnancy though.

    I have my beta for IVF #1 in a few days.  I'm terrified and in some ways I just want to stay in the 2WW so I don't have to deal with the possibility of it coming back negative..yikes! 
     
    QOTW: I am a major planner so as you can imagine, IF has really been difficult for me.  Luckily I've really gotten over the need to plan my family and now realize I'll just be happy if I get one!  I originally planned to have 2 kids, one when I was 27 and 1 when I was 29..I'll be 28 in November so if this IVF works, I'll just be hitting that deadline by a week, haha.  Sounds so silly now...if only I knew then what I know now..

    Update:  almost at the end of BCPs, go in for baseline and stim start on Friday!

    QOTW:  I always wanted 3 kids (I have two sibs).  DH has always wanted two (he has one sib). With IF, who the heck knows...  I really want at least one bio child... but I feel like I've given up on the concept of planning, honestly, and I have to take it one step at a time or I get too depressed.

    Severe MFI. Me: supposedly all clear but eggs showed vacuoles.

    IVF #1 January 2012, ER Jan 14th: 34R, 27M, 23F. Day 3: 18 embies still strong. Day 5: zero "good," one "fair," the rest "poor." Transferred 3. None made it to blast or to freeze. Jan 28: BFN.

    Lucky IVF #2: Transferred two beautiful day three embies on St. Patrick's Day. BFP on HPT 7dp3dt. Beta 1 (14dpER)=106; Beta 2 (16dpER)=140; Beta 3 (19dpER)=264! First u/s 4.17.

    Update: I am still on the BCP for IVF1.  

    QOTW: Before dealing with IF, what was your ?plan?? (How many kids, how far apart, etc) How has that plan changed? Before IF, MH and I discussed having 2 kids, perhaps 2 years apart. Now the only way we will have two is if IVF works and yields twins. Right now, we would be grateful for any small miracle.

    Last Sunday morning was trigger with 3 follies, IUI was Monday morning. Prewash was 25M/mL 41% motility, post wash was 2 million 75% motility. :-( 

    Currently 6dpiui with no plans to test. Because of the poor sperm post wash numbers along with our abysmal morphology, we will move to IVF if this cycle fails.

    QOTW: Before IF, the 'plan' was to have 4 kids, 2-2.5 years apart, by the age of 30. It was supposed to be at my ages 23, 25, 27, and 29. Now, i think 4 kids by age 30 is only doable if I have twins. I still want 4, I don't care how far they're spaced, and I care how old I am. Before I never would've wanted twins. Now I hope for them as I would see it as a double blessing. I may change my mind on the number (more or less) when we move to IVF depending on how many eggs/frosties I have.

    I am waiting to O.  I am making an appointment for my H's SA this week.  The office is only open M-T-W from 7:30-1:00.  Hard to get it all set up when you work those hours!  I am thinking we are going to have to get a hotel room close to the office and stay there the night before so we can get the sample there in time.

    As far as how my plan has changed.  Wow...there is nothing that has fallen into place in my overall life plan.  I am totally happy with it all with the exception of IF.  I always thought I would be married by 25 (I was 30) and I would be done have kids by 30!  haha!  So I am guessing if we go through any treatments, which we are still unsure about, I will take what I can get, 1 or 2 or 3 kids.  I can also accept if we are childless, as long as I know what we are up against.

    Nothing new here.  I'll be going for my first monitoring apptmt tomorrow.  I'm hoping not to trigger until Fri so I won't have to miss any work for the IUI, but we'll see.

    QOTW:  We planned on having 3 kids about 2 years apart.  Now, we still want 3 (if we can get pg that many times) but will start ttc right away after the first one.

    Congrats Hootie!  This cycle seems very promising.  Good luck!

    Update:  Today is CD 1 and baseline for IVF is tomorrow.  So excited that it's finally here.

    I also thought we might have issues but we always said 2 but we'd be fine with 1.  We haven't changed our mind but I know I'll be very thankful for 1.

    I had scheduled DH's S/A for this coming Friday but he just informed me that's when his annual review is (and when we find out what his annual bonus on March 15th will be FX!) So he asked if I can reschedule it for the following Monday, which will only be a day before the Uro appointment.  Oh, well. 

    Crazy, but wif I get that job- I've actually thought of if his count are back to his "normal" of holding of IUI#3 vs.2.0 for June.  Apparently once you do an 8 month treatment break, doing a four month one seem like a piece of cake!  So I don't mind rescheduling.  But we will have to see how things shake out both with the job interview, Dh's bonus, and his counts in the next two weeks.  ((If my sanity can make it through it all!)

    QOTW:  We had said we wanted two kids about 2-3 years apart before we got married (at ages 31 & 37).  Now that we're 34 & 40 - we hope we can have at least one bio child and if we do we'll try for a second asap but if after 3 IUIs in a year it doesn't work we'll be happy with just the one.  And if we get twins from treatment, we will not be going for any more.

    Zook- YGPM too

    Update: BFN yesterday and AF came full force over night.  Didn't even get a day of spotting first. But, I'll take it bc I'm ready to move on to the next cycle. I'll call RE tomorrow and set up a baseline hopefully for Tuesday (cd3). I plan on asking for max dose femara, injects, or combo. I will not take just femara 2.5 mg again.  Crinone sucks b/c I'm so bloated and my back is KILLING me but it did fix the LPD issue so I guess I'm stuck wiith it again next cycle.  

     

    QOTW: Hmm we always sorta knew ttc would be difficult b/c of my endo. If anything else I knew I would have trouble going off the pill to start ttc due to super severe daily cramps and daily bleeding.  So I guess there was no before IF really. But I did always think that I could have a say in the timing...Like try to get pregnant in the fall so that I would be due towards the end of the school year. I always planned on having children at 30 (I'm 30 now) and always planned on 1 or 2. Now we are only ttc for one though b/c of my diagnosis and quite frankly I can't go through this again.

    QOTW: Before IF, we talked about having two kids relatively close together. That plan hasn't really changed, but at this point we'd be happy to have one! I think we still want them close together so the IF treatments can be behind us and we can just enjoy our lives.

    update: had baseline #2 today... went well... lining is now up to par and ovaries are still quiet, so I got to start crinone.  FET is officially a go for this coming friday.

    qotw:If I could have picked exactly, I was going to have 2 (a boy, then a girl) and they were going to be either 2 or 4 years apart.  We'll still have 2, but now we're facing the possibility of 1 or both of them being adopted if none of our snow babies take.

    I'm still waiting for AF and for my beta to get to zero.  This cycle was a roller coaster...Beta at 5.1 on 12dpo, then 57 18dpo, and at 50 on 20dpo.  I head back in tomorrow morning for another test to see where it is.  My RE doesn't want to give me anything if my levels are dropping on their own.  Hopefully they will have dropped a good bit and I will start my period this week.  I keep having the normal cramps that come right before starting so hopefully it'll be soon.

    QOTW:  We had wanted two kids, roughly 3-4 years apart.  With IF, I still would like two but if we end up having to do IVF, I will be thrilled with one.  If one of our next two IUI cycles work, we will probably start trying again once our child is 1 - 1 1/2.

    Update: Still on bcp's, we have an u/s Thursday, and if everything looks good, we'll start Lupron that day as well.

    QOTW: I always thought that by now, I'd be done having to 2-3 kids I was planning to have!  (I'm 35.)  But I didn't get married until I was 33, then IF showed up.  DH and I would really like 2 kids; we both have one sibling and are very close.  With IVF, there are so many unknowns...will we be successful at all? Twins? Frosties?  All of those things will factor in to what we do.  I do know that if we are fortunate enough to get pregnant, we would likely not do any more treatment for a second child, unless we are able to do a FET.  If we have twins, we'll be done for sure.  If we have one, and no frosties, we'd probably just not prevent again, and see what happens.

    Update - I had my HSG and glucose test to confirm/disprove PCOS last week and am waiting for results. 

    QOTW - I always wanted 3. Twins run in my family on my mothers side and I'm next in line and I wanted two ages so that meant possibly 3 kids. I wanted them 2-3 years apart and I wanted my first by 26-27. I turned 25 in November so I still have time. I too never imagined it would be like this.

    not much to update here.  i start provera on 3/5 to get AF, and then i will start bcp's for ivf cycle number 2.

    QOTW: Before dealing with IF, what was your ?plan?? (How many kids, how far apart, etc) How has that plan changed? my original plan was 2 kids, maybe 3, a couple of years aport, before i turned 30.  my divorce had a slight effect on the timeframe, but i would've only been a couple of years behind it.  now i'm 32 and going through ivf again.  oh well.

    QOTW: I actually didn't have any expectations on how many or how old I would be, BUT never thought I'd be looking at 32 in a few months without kids. I will take one if that's all we can do but we'd like 2 kids -maybe 3?

    I would like to added to the list.

    We started trying October 2010. We are diagnosed with anovulary cycles. I have  been through 6 clomid cycles and 2 femara + iui

     I have my beta tomorrow for iui#2 but, I tested today and it was negative. I stopped my progesterone suppositories today because I feel like this cycle is a bust and prog is a ***! I try to keep my outlook positive but, it gets harder every month :(.

     My plans change because life ended up different then I planned. I thought I would be married by 25 and have kids by 30. I didn't get married until I was 31 lol so much for that plan! Then IF reared it's ugly head and life has gotten more complicated. I will continue to pray and have faith that god has a plan for me. He always does my husband came late but he was worth every minute I waited :). Here is to plans!!

    Update:  Still in the 2ww.  Yes  I'm tired of the PIO shots and I don't have any symptoms -  unless gas counts as a symptom. 

    QOTW:  I always thought I would be married by 25 with 1-2 kids.  Well, marriage didn't happen until 10 years later. So, at this stage I just want a healthy baby. 

    How do I deal with the change of plans?  Prayer, lots of prayer.  One of my favorite movie quotes is "We don't pray to change God, we pray to change ourselves."

    Update - Baseline u/s is Wednesday and stims start on Saturday.  Holy crap!

    QOTW - When I was still in college my plan was to have 2 kids by age 30 and 2 more in my 30s.    I am now 31, childless, and just hoping that we can have 1 someday. 

    TTC since 2010

    lots of IUIs and 1 IVF all BFNs

    No new changes here. Still on BCP's One more month!

    Our plan was to have 4 kids about 2-4 years apart. Now we'd be happy with 1. 2 will probably be our maximum if we have to keep pursuing infertility treatments for each child. And we'll probably start trying for the second much sooner than we would've planned.

    Nothing to update. Urologist appt Wednesday so may have an update then.

     

    QOTW: Before dealing with IF, what was your ?plan?? 2-3 Kids. Giving birth summer 2012 (I work in a school), wait about 2 years have another one, and if we didn't have a boy and a girl we would see about having #3 to try to get both.  How has that plan changed? Get pregnant with #1. Depending on how long that takes and if we need IVF think about trying for #2. Possibly adoption, possibly fostering, possibly attempting a child free life. So much is unknown at this point.

    Update: Nothing new. Last cycle was another BFN and I'm cd 2 now on cycle 28. Sigh. 

    ETA: My CL cyst burst at midnight last night. That was fun. The pain woke me up from a dead sleep- it was awful. But I tell ya what... A percocet and a super hot bath = better. I haven't had any more pain from it now that it's gone. Ha.  

    QOTW: The "plan" was to be married and have 2-3 kids. I'm an only child and wanted 3. MH has 2 sisters and only wanted 1-2. LOL

    The plan now is.. if we have twins, we're done. If we only have one, we probably won't do IF treatments again. So we'll just have sex forever without protection and if we get lucky- YAY!

    Im still waiting for a period. I was supposed to call if I didnt get one about 2 weeks ago, but just needed a break.  We are not sure if we are going to do IUI #4 or go to IVF.
    http://oi58.tinypic.com/nqv6fk.jpg

    DX: PCOS/Recurrent losses/MTHFR mutation (compound hetero)
    5 hysteroscopies/2 surgical
    3 Inject IUIs = 2 m/c's and 1 BFN
    IVF #1= BFP. m/c at 7w6d. Needed 2 D&C's and scar tissue removal. Mild OHSS
    IVF #2 = BFP. Severe OHSS. 4 Drainings. TWINS!
  • Options

    After 9 days of injects, my cycle was cancelled due to too many follies all ranging between 13-15mm. My RE estimated that if we continued with the cycle, I would have had 8-10 mature follies on my good side by the time we triggered; that did not include my bad side which would have had 5-10 more mature follies. I am not sure why they did not suggest converting to IVF but I will be for sure bringing it up at my next appointment.

    Now I just wait for AF to show and then we are changing my cycle to Femara + Bravelle. I feel like I am taking a step backwards but my RE did say that I am the type he worries about over-stimming and it may take some time to get it right.

    QOTW: My DH and I always wanted 2, possibly 3 or 4 depending. I always thought I would be done having kids by the time I was 30; I will now be lucky to have 1 by the time I am 30 due to IF. We are still planning for at least 2, if we end up with twins, we will probably try for one more after. If we end up with one, instead of waiting a year or two for a second, we will probably try for a second almost immediately.

    I am 9dpiui today and feeling pessimistic. We only have 1 IUI left before moving onto IVF. 

    QOTW: I always wanted 3 before 30. While it is still possible, I would have to have them much closer together than original anticipated. At this point, I would be happy with just 1.

    I would like to be added to the list.

    2) When did you start TTC (month/year)? Off BCP June 2010. Began charting June 2011.

    3) What is your diagnosis, if you have one? Pituitary Microadenoma (December 2011), Anovulation due to elevated prolactin (December 2011), and Hypothyroidism (February 2012). 

    4) What treatments have you done? Currently taking cabergoline for the prolactin and synthroid for the thyroid. We're not ready to start seeing an RE yet.

     I want one, DH wants two. We'll see how it goes, but, if we end up with more than one, I do not want them any closer than three years in age.


    TTC since June 2010.
    DX hypothyroidism, pituitary hyperfunction, and PCOS.
    On med/treatment break indefinitely. Not currently trying.
    Lots of love to all of my Golden Girls!

    Update: Somewhat exciting week with my ER.  I never imagined I would get 23 eggs and have 15 embryos to work with.   I'm just happy this is different than my other two cycles - giving me a bit of hope that things could possibly end differently this time.   I never heard from the embryologist today - so that means we are going ahead with a day 5 on Wed (leap year day!).   I am going to be so anxious to find out how our embies are growing then.  

    QOTW:  I've always wanted two kids - probably two years apart.  Now I'll take whatever I can get - even if that means only one child.  

    Girl, that is amazing!! You had some rock star follicles this go round!!! I really hope this means you'll get your take home baby really soon. FX!

    No real update - in 2ww of IUI#2

    QOTD:  If I could have planned everything ideally - married by 25, 2 kids by 30.

    My reality: I got married at 27,  I still want at least two.  I'd IDEALLY like 2 bio kids, 2 adopted kids.  I realize all of this takes lots of money, which IDEALLY I would have as well.  We have very little money, so if we can't have the bio kids with the help of insurance, we'll start saving for adoption.  I don't know when the cutoff is for us to start deciding that yet...

    Dx: LPD, late ovulation;
     July 2012:IUI #6 on 7/28, BFP on 8/9,beta 97, 8/11 189, 8/13 400!!   DS born 4/18!
    9/30/13 - Miracle BFP, released from RE 10/21, EDD 6/6/14, DD born 5/27!
    6/19/16 - Miracle BFP, EDD 2/25/17

    Update: No meds this month as the RE wants to run a battery of tests to hopefully figure out why I keep having chemicals. HSG will be within the next week or so and lots of fun blood draws in the mean time.

    QOTW: I've always wanted 2 kids (I have 1 sib) and DH has always wanted at least 3 (he has 2 sibs). I thought I'd be married by 25-26, and done having kids by 30. I hit the marriage mark (26), but done by 30 isn't in the cards. When I realized I wouldn't have my first by 28 (when my mom had me), I took it extremely hard. Now that deadline has passed and I'm setting zero deadlines for the future. Way too disappointing when they don't work out. I'm definitely more open to 3 kids now (or more) but we would probably pursue adoption in order to make that happen.

    No updates. Waiting for AF to start medicated cycle #2. I might have to get Provera to jump start this thing.

     

    QOTW: I always thought I'd get married at 23 and have 3 kids by 30. I didn't get married at 23 and now I'll be glad if I have one by 30. I'm still hoping to have 3 although I will definitely be in my 30s before we're done.

    Oops.. I think I fell off the list!


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

    2) When did you start TTC (month/year)? 09/2010

    3) What is your diagnosis, if you have one? PCOS w/ IR, low P4, lost left tube

    4) What treatments have you done?: Moving on to 5th Clomid cycle, 2nd IUI if right ovary responds


    QOTW: Before dealing with IF, what was your ?plan?? (How many kids, how far apart, etc) How has that plan changed?: We always wanted 2-3 kids, but we decided we'll start trying for #2 soon after the birth of #1 instead of waiting a few years.
