KUSMO 28MAY14 — The Bump
Secondary IF

KUSMO 28MAY14

Good Morning,

Trying to keep up with this! I think instead of holding myself to one specific day, since this is time intensive I am going to try and do this at some point each week instead of Sunday exactly.

Please be patient- we have new adds and that equals more work. I am trying to be fair and add people where I think is appropriate to hopefully offset anyone feeling hurt- however, please understand that some people have been on here and active and I know there struggles- if anyone ever just appears on the KUSMO (without being on wait section first- respect that they have probably seen some heartache and honor that). If I missed anyone- I am sorry, Lupron makes me angry and estrogen makes me fuzzy. basically sometimes I feel like a really groggy hulk... lol

Lastly, sometimes it is hard to put this together. I do get attached to my peeps and looking you all up, I see posts from other boards sometimes and I learn just some heart breaking backstories and sometimes just the fact of the present what you are going through that you have shared on SIF. It truly is an emotional roller coaster we are going through and I have a couple times contemplated stopping this. I don't want to do that though either! I'm just as elated for the good times and I think that- hopefully, as a collective here the KUSMO will highlight those good times and give us all that to look forward too. Ok, so you guys know I am not about the gush. Just know if I am late with posting it is either because I got super busy, I am waiting to hopefully hear some good news (or be allowed to post it), or hoping to give someone a minute to breathe from some bad news and post it before it goes up here. Thanks for understanding!

    Love this post. Everything about it. Thanks for doing this!
    After two losses, a rainbow arrived! DD born 11.5.11
    Dx with severe Asherman's syndrome after a botched PP D&C (pursuing med mal)
    Hysteroscopy Oct '13, not enough progress 
    Hysteroscopy Jan '14, given an end-of-the-road diagnosis
    Joined International Asherman's Association April '14 
    Not ready to give up yet.
    Hysteroscopy with Dr. Isaacson (an expert in the USA) 6.2.14: Good prognosis, at least 50% of cavity open.
    Repeat hysteroscopy scheduled with Dr. I on 6.16.14. Great progress. Unbenched!!!!
    Discussing actively TTC with DH after the heartache of the last year. We're both reeling.
     
    Please, please, please.

  • You have my continued adoration for taking the time to do this post and I think that fact that you do it all is really cool, never mind the exact timing could not matter less.
    Anywho I updated in my other post, but it's relatively clear to me at this point this is a chemical and I now have a meeting tomorrow morning with my RE to see where we stand going forward .

    TTC#1 May 2009- July 2010 on our own with no luck

    Started with RE in August 2010, dx with unexplained IF and then finally our 3rd IUI cycle using Follistim and Trigger resulted in our wonderful little man.  Born 12/2/11

    TTC#2 Never really prevented, but were careful early on as Dr. reccomended

    Surprise BFP 12/16/13, started progesterone immediately as first numbers came back low, but betas were good.  Progesterone wasnt enough. Natural MC 12/24/13.

    Back with RE as of January 2014...

    5/27/14- Chemical Pregnancy :(

    April 2015 IVF#1

    5/13/15- BFP, please stick LO!

    Oh and I'm a major Harry Potter Nerd :)

  • CD 17, not 18. Progesterone check on Sunday 6/1 (the office is open 7 days/week), and Beta more than likely the following Sunday 6/8...

    You're doing great no matter when you post. I'm always in awe of your info gathering skills!

    I'm CD 12. DH is going for surgery June 19th, Pre-op the 11th! I'm hoping to have DS's results by the time DH is cleared for trying again. In the meantime we're just being lazy about it. I take an OPK from time-to-time to feel like I'm doing something but we're still pretty much on a break from the crazy TTC. My new goal for right now is for sex not to be a chore. A girl can dream....

    Yeah, it's so hard to be in that place.  I hope you get some good, heart-to-heart, connecting-with-your-husband-on-an-emotional-and-spiritual-level love making in sometime in the near future.  I know my marriage is always happier when we get busy outside of o time.

    Hi ladies! Sorry for dropping off the face of the earth. We went out of town for the weekend and now we are living in our driveway while we have floors installed. None of the above has led to much bumping.

    Where I am: Betas yesterday were 64. So, definitely no baby. But still not sure if we are going to wait it out or if an MTX shot is in our future.

    I have been trying to check in even when I'm not posting. Should be more active again soon!

  • So, I have been around the block a few times w IVF but I have a question- I never had to do a mock transfer- what indicates having to do one or not? I always meant to ask that, but never remember to!
    January 2007- Stop BCP! Let's DO this!
    June 2010- MFI. BS. IVF! Ectopic. BS. image

    November 2010- FAILED FET! BS!
    January 2011- BFP FET! TWINS!
    February 2011- lost twin. BS. image

    SEPTEMBER 2011- DD Born! Most awesome girl in the world!

    November 2013- FAILED FET! BS! (screw you November FETs)

  • Thank you so much for doing this. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I think I had a CP last month. Faint positive followed by spotting then bleeding, so chalk it up to CD3 for me now. Still natural cycle with acupuncture, herbs, supplements and chiropractic care. 

    @designer303 I feel for you. I'm very sorry.
    Sept 2013 started TTC#2 (never got PP period so hoping for the first egg to drop)
    Jan 2014 - diagnosed POF (Premature Ovarian Failure) and told pregnancy not possible without egg donor because my ovaries would never function again with my hormone levels (FSH 136, LH 98.6, AMH <.03, estradiol 0, HCG 7) - using acupuncture, chiropractic care and TCM herbs / supplements
    March 11, 2014 ovulated despite every doctors prognosis!!!
    Oct 2014 hormones (FSH 48, Estradiol 89, HCG 1) not good, but heckuva lot better!

    Nov. 16, 2015 FET of single adopted 5AA embryo - BFN

  • My two clinics have always required a mock transfer before each IVF cycle, even if you have cycled before and even at their clinic before. They measure the uterus via ultrasound so they can anticipate where to place the catheter during actual ET and even try placing a catheter.  So they do a transfer with an empty catheter.  They also do this to make sure the catheter size is correct and make note of all of their findings for the actual ET.

    I think some clinics just do this transfer day instead.

  • I'm CD 26 (15dpo)... i thought it odd that I O'd so early (CD12) but RE confirmed I was about to drop an egg on our u/s on CD11 so hmm. It was releasing from my side without a tube so I'm confident I just O'd later and am awaiting AF any day.

    I fired my RE. i seriously loved her but after 4 calls to her office with not a single call back i'm over it. not willing to waste any more time. so with that said i'm going back to RE #2. dropped off the HSG films and lab results to his office today, they said I should hear from him in the next day or so. he seemed to be of the opinion that another lap was in my near future and i'm already on board with that. i just dont want to spin my wheels anymore.

    @tortuga47‌ I'm so sorry that you are dealing with this too. ((Hugs))

    This has been a seriously shitty couple weeks for this board. Bring on good news and better times for all of us please. [-O<

    TTC#1 May 2009- July 2010 on our own with no luck

    Started with RE in August 2010, dx with unexplained IF and then finally our 3rd IUI cycle using Follistim and Trigger resulted in our wonderful little man.  Born 12/2/11

    TTC#2 Never really prevented, but were careful early on as Dr. reccomended

    Surprise BFP 12/16/13, started progesterone immediately as first numbers came back low, but betas were good.  Progesterone wasnt enough. Natural MC 12/24/13.

    Back with RE as of January 2014...

    5/27/14- Chemical Pregnancy :(

    April 2015 IVF#1

    5/13/15- BFP, please stick LO!

    Oh and I'm a major Harry Potter Nerd :)
