“All I can say is, it's a sort of kinship, as though there is a family tree of grief. On this branch, the lost children, on this the suicided parents, here the beloved mentally ill siblings. When something terrible happens, you discover all of the sudden that you have a new set of relatives, people with whom you can speak in the shorthand of cousins.” ― Elizabeth McCracken

  • AF arrived this morning so everything is getting closer. I've been pushing this cycle to the back of my mind and tried to keep busy; no day by day count-downs, no extra appointments, no diet plans. I hope I don't regret taking a more relaxed approach to this cycle but I figure the opposite has failed to work for the past 2+ years so I may as well try something different. I will start dexamethosone and progynova if my Monday blood test shows that I've down regulated properly. I will then have my intralipid infusion shortly after. Then if everything goes to plan our two little frozen embies will be transferred in a few weeks :) QOTD: I don't really have any secret talents but most people don't know that I can be quite messy. People are always shocked when they find out I'm messy as I am such a big planner/organiser. I wish I was a clean-freak but unfortunately sometimes I just leave things until the next day/week/month....

  • shelbeans82 My RE has people go the 4th day of stims (after 3 full days of stims) for b/w and u/s.  However, last time the RE told me that the b/w tells them the most that early in stims.  

    Thanks. I just don't want to get far into the process without knowing what's going on in there! Maybe they will bring me back Tues or Weds - I guess we shall see!!

  • Okay, I thought if post again because I'm sitting here stressing like crazy and DH doesn't want to hear me complain anymore. I'm having really bad lower abdominal pains that I'm pretty sure is a cyst :(. I could cry I really don't want to be delayed anymore or cancelled.

  • Happy Halloween!

    I went in to monitoring today thinking I was going to trigger tonight, but I actually had my doctor today and he decided to hold me off one more night and up my Follistim again for the night. I go in again tomorrow and then most definitely trigger tomorrow night for ER on Sunday. I am seriously stressing about going under anesthesia again...bleh! And stupid me, I got there a little late this morning, so I got stuck with the bad nurse again for blood work and she effing hurt my arm and I am so MAD! She is not coming near me tomorrow...I will kick and scream!

     

    QOTD: I can't think of anything special off hand. My husband thinks I have a gift for giving gifts, because I like to come up with the perfect thing. I'll go with that for now!

  • I'm on day 3 of stims. No cramping yet- is that normal?? My first ultrasound is on Monday so hopefully something is happening in there. I've noticed the Lupron injections are starting to hurt and I'm not sure why. I don't know if my husband is getting rougher or if my stomach is just getting sensitive.
    Question for you ladies: How far away from your belly button are you giving yourself the injection?

    QOTD: I don't think I have any secret talents. I can read people even well, does that count? And I have good intuition.

    Sig warning
    I was instructed at least 1 inch from your belly button.
    I should hear tomorrow whether our lone embie makes it to day 3 freeze. At that point I will decide with my RE whether to move forward with hysteroscopy to remove the polyp next week. QOTW: I honestly can't think of anything right now.....

    Happy Friday Ladies! It's November 1st, it's our month!

    We had our pre-cycle meeting with our RE yesteray just to run through the entire process, meds, timeline, etc. I felt realy prepared going into the appointment but by the end was just so overwhelmed that this is finally going to happen, that I almost started sobbing once I got into the car. Hard to imagine actually being where we are now, if that makes sense.

    We start Estrace on Monday assuming bloodwork that morning looks good and then should start stims around 11/13. ER the week before Thanksgiving and ET the week of. With my luck, it will probably be ON Thanksgiving.

    QOTD: I have a weird ability to know where pretty much anything is in our house. That includes lost keys, shoes, etc.

  • Right now I'm in a holding pattern waiting for a period. They determined that the period I had last week was really a withdrawal bleed based on my estrogen and progesterone numbers. I guess the good news is that waiting will give the cyst they found a chance to go away but I hate just sitting here twiddling my thumbs. Hopefully I'll still be a Harvest Hopeful. Once I get my period they'll decide next steps on meds.

    I can't think of anything off the top of my head. I used to be fluent in French after living in Switzerland for 2 months one summer. Maybe that's something most people don't know. ;-)

     TTC since August 2011, Me = 40, DH = 38
    Unexplained IF. Tried Clomid for 3 cycles. All BFNs. BFP 1/6/13. Chemical pregnancy.

    Moving on to IVF#1. ER 11/26/13, 16 eggs retreived, 12 mature and all fertilized. 2 blasts transferred on 12/1. All other embies arrested so nothing left to freeze. Beta 12/10 = BFN. IVF #2 March 2014. BFP!!! TEAM BLUE!!!

    Question for you ladies: How far away from your belly button are you giving yourself the injection?

    My stomach was too sore during my first injectable cycle that I started doing all my injections in my thighs, and it is WAY better.  I did it for my first IVF & I am doing it again in my thighs.  Same response - you can also do them in the back of your arm, if you wish. 

    As for me, I had my first monitoring appointment, and things are moving slowly (similar to last time - I am a slow responder, but when I get bumped, I soar, so we are trying to toe the line).  I am expected to go back on Monday or Tuesday.

    QOTD: I played rugby in college.  People who meet me now are shocked to learn this - I guess I don't fit the picture of a rugby player, but I played all 4 years, became the coach/captain my senior year, and loved every minute of it.

    My TTC Journey:
    Dx: Hypothalamic amenorrhea / mild PCOS (Pretty much a hormone/ovulatory disorder)
    Progesterone to induce period w/ the goal of Clomid - never got period (September 2011). Referred to RE.
    Femera - never responded to the meds (December 2011)
    Clomid with TI - BFN (February 2012)

  • Hi ladies, I'm recovering from my polyp removal procedure. F/u phone call with doctor is Nov 11th then I'll start my cycle on the 15th with bw and u/s. FET #2 is tentatively scheduled for Nov 26th! You might have seen my separate post, but Yesterday, on Halloween as I'm trick or treating with my nieces and nephew, my friend test me and told me she's 12 weeks pregnant and attached a sonogram pic. I kind of hit a really dark place last night and cried all night long and couldn't get out of the funk and cried myself to sleep. I took it pretty bad. Only you guys understand our moments we have. I know I should be positive and excited that my transfer is soon but there's no guarantee it's going to work. Sorry about the depressed rant!

    QOTD: I am also a photographer and started my own business just less than a year ago and it's been crazy packed with sessions with no advertisement, just word of mouth through clients! However I've been kind of stressed out with it while I'm working a full time job so I need to slow it down right now before my cycle starts. The transfer is more important right now and needs to take priority!

  • Hey ladies! I'm still taking my BCPs and start lupron sunday. I'm so excited to move forward but its already making me nervous and emotional. I wasn't really expecting that. I go back and forth from "this has to work this time, of course it will!" To "omg omg what if it doesn't? What will we do?!" So scary. I need to stay positive!

    QOTD: Most of my adult friends do not know that I rode horses competitively on a national level most of my childhood and straight through college. I rode English and did hunter/jumpers. I miss all my ponies and horses so much but its great thinking back on all the great memories!
    2013- 2 IVF cycles with PGD to prevent genetic disorder from being passed on. Both BFFN :(

  • krdesi GL with trigger and ER.  Maybe if you mention it to the anesthesiologist or anesthesia nurse,  they can give you something different or a little bit less of it.
    @ThoseThreeWords ; That is what I am hoping! I wish I could speak to him sooner than 5 minutes before my procedure, but I am definitely hoping there is something different he can do. My doctor told me yesterday "I don't understand why you had such a reaction....your sedation was the mild, Michael Jackson kind, to just make you sleep". LOL I am not sure I am comforted that what I had is what Michael Jackson had!

  • On my first IVF cycle. Started Follistim last night, so I'm only on day 2. My first u/s is Tuesday so we'll see how that goes. No symptoms from anything yet. I know we're supposed to have an ER and FET some time this month, but I was so overwhelmed after we left the RE yesterday that I'm not sure of the date.

    Not sure if I have any special talents, but I'm not to shabby of a baker. :)

    On my first IVF cycle. Started Follistim last night, so I'm only on day 2. My first u/s is Tuesday so we'll see how that goes. No symptoms from anything yet. I know we're supposed to have an ER and FET some time this month, but I was so overwhelmed after we left the RE yesterday that I'm not sure of the date.

    Not sure if I have any special talents, but I'm not to shabby of a baker. :) 


    Welcome! Just wanted to say that we have been TTC literally almost to the day (11/22/11) the same time and am also on day 2 of Follistim. Good luck with your cycle!
