How is everyone?!

Hola ladies!

How's everyone doing? Where are you in your cycles? What's new? Miss you all!

We unexpectedly lost one of our furbabies (kitty), Remy, last week. He was only 4 years old and nothing was ever suspected. He had extreme renal failure. That has me pretty devastated but I just take it one day at a time. We visited my grandparents for a week earlier in the month and it did my heart good to spend some quality time with them. I'm very thankful for that. Other than that, same old. Work is insane. Can't believe summer is over. No plans for cycling right now but I'm ok with that - even with many, many IRL friends and family pg with #2 & #3 right now, lol. I have two sisters busy planning summer 2014 weddings and I'm MOH for my SIL  so that is plenty of excitement right now!!

Re: How is everyone?!

  • Poor kitty. I am so sorry you lost your furbaby. ((hugs))

    I have my next FET transfer this coming Wednesday. Our most recent drama was whether to transfer 1 or 2. DH and I are really sold on one but the doctor was not too keen on it. I eventually convinced him that even if it meant that our chances were reduced, it was the right choice for us. Plus I think that if I have implantation issues, we have a better chance of success with four single transfers than with 2 double chances. if my ute won't take one why would it take 2?  


    Dx: DH - Azoo, Me - Mild PCOS
    DH - sperm found! Seems to produce only for a few days every 70 days!
    Over 1 million in cryo in 15 vials over 6 samples
    IVF #1 - 1 beautiful expanded blast transferred, 4 snowbabies - beta #1 11/30/11 = BFFN
    FET #1, transfered 2 embies 2/16/12 = BFFN; 1 snowbaby left in cryo
    IVF #2 + CGH = 4 genetically normal embies on ice. FET September 26th
    SAIF/PAIF always welcome

    a special GL and prayers to my IF sister Gregermis

  • Thanks everyone. We actually went to the local humane society on Saturday and put in an application for another kitty! I feel like Remy brought this one to us, we actually found him in the same room we found Remy in (they have separated habitat rooms). 

    Good luck to those of you in the midst of cycles - you know I'll be rooting you on!

    What's this fb group? Is it the main one that's out there or is it just an IFV group?
