Ugh...today is not a good day. — The Bump
Trouble TTC

Ugh...today is not a good day.

I.Can't.Stop.Crying. I feel like such a baby. I've never been a crier, but when it comes to IF stuff...I can't control it.

AF decided to come early. And now my IUI will run in to when MH will be out of town on a business trip, so my RE canceled my cycle. After I was already benched last cycle.

I get it. I can do it next cycle. But damnit I just want to move forward. I know it's not true (or healthy) but I just keep having this awful self-blaming feeling and keep feeling like I don't deserve this. And I'm just a blubbering mess about it. Multiple people have texted/asked when my injections will be starting and I just cry. Every. Time.

I'm ready for the weekend. I feel bad because I'm supposed to be going to a bday party, and MH has his fantasy football draft sunday so I'm supposed to help host that, but I think I'm just going to hole myself up in my room with wine for the weekend until I feel better.

end rant. Thanks for listening/reading ladies. I'm too upset to talk to MH about it right now, and I just needed to get it out in the hopes that I would stop crying about it.

  • Thank you ladies. I was trying really hard at work to keep to myself and not say anything (not about IF, but literally nothing at all lol) because every time I went to talk I had a frog in my throat. But finally I just kind of spilled on one of my co-workers when she just came up and gave me a hug (the first hug I'd gotten today) and after I cried and said it all out loud I felt better. I'm still sad about this cycle, and whenever I talk to DH I get sad again, but at least now I don't feel like bawling my eyes out every stinkin second.

    Thank you so much for the support. It really helped to read these throughout the day (I just wasn't able to respond until I'm now on my lunch break).

    I hope all of you ladies have a great Friday.

  • So sorry to hear this. Hugs
    TTC since 2013 (grad of 3T)
    EDD: May 24, 2015
  • I'm so sorry, it sounds like you bravely got through that break but then being asked to wait one more cycle is just too unfair! :(

    Love @iputcketchuponketchup 's idea, at our RE to freeze a frozen sample is only something like $150 more than the typical wash for IUI. Could be worth it to you, especially since YH's SAs are normal and hopefully could survive a freeze! Plus the shorter time they're kept frozen, the more viable they are. :)

  • I'm sorry you're having a rough time. Would your RE be willing to go ahead with the IUI using a frozen sample of YH's sperm so you don't have to waste another cycle? No idea what the additional cost may be, but it doesn't hurt to ask. That way, at the end of the day, if it isn't a feasible a option then you can at least tell yourself that you tried. Worth a shot, IMO. 

    If that isn't an option, then I completely support your decision to want to hole yourself up in your room with a bottle or two of wine. You know I won't judge you ;)

    I had no idea this was even an option! I try not to bring up my insurance much since I know not everyone has it, but I'm really upset because my DH is really wanting to get a new job, and he's been applying...but he carries our insurance. So if he switches jobs....I love my coverage and we're completely OOP. My insurance leaves us responsible for a lot, but ANYTHING they pay helps, ya know. So these wasted months have really been eating at me for this reason as well. So I might call and explain my situation and see if there's anything we can do.

    It especially stinks because he may not even be gone when I need him, he just MIGHT be gone. It all depends on me ya know. So if I only need my injections for 8 or 9 days...he'd be gone. But if I need them for 10, then he will be home. Even on day 9 he will be home by 4 in the afternoon so we could still rush over there and do a late afternoon IUI or something. It just seems so silly to have to waste an entire month because of ONE day...which may not even be an issue depending on how I respond to my injections.

  • Welp, talked to my RE....they charge $520 just to freeze the sample, and then charge almost as much to thaw it the day of the IUI. Sooo...that's not an option for me at this point. And I asked about possibly starting my injections on CD5, instead of CD3 (as I read that it doesn't really make a difference), and my nurse said that wouldn't change my ovulation schedule. So she said I will just have to wait until next month.

    I did ask if I could do another cycle of femara this month since I tend to not O until CD14-15 on that, and my DH will be back prior to that and my RE said no. Not that I have any hope it will work seeing as how I've done 3 cycles of clomid and 3 cycles of femara already...but then at least I would feel like I was doing SOMETHING.

    *sigh* I guess it was worth a shot. Thanks for the advice ladies. Wine it is.....

    I want your RE's price list darnit. I would've paid $150. I probably would've paid up to $300. But almost $1000 to freeze and thaw....I can't justify or swing that at this point. UGH UGH UGH! I hate this whole process so much....

  • I'm so sorry, Chasity. I have had days where I have an all-out ugly cry.

    *********PREGNANCIES/LOSSES MENTIONED***************






    Both of my aunts and my mom suffered IF and losses. My mom had 1 loss (late enough to know it was a boy), and my aunts each had 3 losses (one had them in a row between her 1st and 2nd children, the other had one loss in between each of her children). My mom is gone, but my aunts have been instrumental in helping me on my bad IF days. They are so nurturing and have really stepped in since my mom died.

    Obviously, you have the people on this board, but is there anyone in your life you can turn to on days like this? If not, maybe a psychologist or counselor of some sort could help? I saw one after my mom died (traumatic circumstances), and it was so helpful. Even my abuela is seeing someone to cope with her impending death from cancer. I hope you can find peace and comfort somewhere. I don't know if you're religious or not, but I always turn to God in times like this and try to remind myself that He knows the pain I feel and I am never alone.

    I'm sending you the biggest of (((HUGS))). Feel better, honey.

    Married and started TTC in July 2013

    "Diagnosed" with unexplained infertility
    Oct 2014 IUI #1: 100mg clomid/HCG trigger/2 mature follicles/18mil post wash sperm count: BFP!!!

  • ((((Hugs)))) I'm sorry you're having a rough day. I have definitely been there. I have often blamed myself too which really is so illogical! I think our brains just are constantly seeking an answer to why this is all happening. Cry it out and get some rest and hopefully you will feel better about it soon.

    Me: 32  DH: 33  Married: March 2004

    July 2006: started TTC
    2008: HSG (normal), couple rounds of clomid through gyno

    2008 - 2010: dragging my feet out of fear and procrastination
    October 2010: first consultation with RE, dx PCOS and fibroids (DH slightly low count/motility)
    Oct. 2010 - Dec. 2012:  In DENIAL! avoided the issue because I was scared of surgery
    January 2013: returned to RE, fibroids grew significantly
    February 2013: second HSG, fibroids pushed on tubes which blocked them somewhat
    March 2013: MRI to determine what type of surgery may be necessary
    July 29, 2013: fibroids (5) removed via robotic laparascopy
    August 2013 - Nov 2013 : benched due to recent surgery

    IUI #1, Dec. 24, 2013, BFN 
    IUI #2, Jan. 25, 2014, BFN
    IUI #3, Feb. 25, 2014  BFN
    IUI #4 canceled due to lack of response to letrozole
    IUI #4.1 April 28, 2014, BFN
    May 16, 2014: wtf consult, start prepping for IVF in June and add injects for one last IUI in the meantime
    IUI #5 started letrozole and bravelle but canceled after HSG led to new diagnosis
    May 21, 2014: third HSG, tubes blocked, one at the beginning, one hydrosalpinx??
    June 11, 2014: consult, approved to move on to IVF because the hydro is not completely blocked therefore allowing fluid to move through slowly rather than backwards
    IVF #1 August 8, 2014 - 3dt of 2 embryos, BFN
    September 17, 2014 - 4th HSG, the right tube is very patent (open!!) dye went straight through this time. Weird!
    October 2, 2014 - started metformin treatment
    November 14, 2014 - blood work, brought A1C down from 5.8 to 5.5
    November 26, 2014 - RE finally back from vaca and reviewed my chart, no more IVFs for rest of calendar year
    December 1, 2014 - Right after Thanksgiving, I called a new clinic and got in right away! Plan for IVF

    *****Everyone is welcome******

  • Hugs!! Sorry you're feeling down in the dumps. Sometimes a good cry is what your mind needs. Sit down, relax, have a good cry and then go do something you love to do. Go get ice cream! Or go see a funny movie! Sometimes a good fun night out with my DH does wonders emotionally for my stress level! Thinking of you :)

  • @iPutKetchupOnKetchup‌ you are infinitely full of wisdom. I did find one place in town that may do it. It's not a sperm bank, it just seems to be another RE type facility, but not really....I don't think id go there for care, but freezing sperm....sure haha. I'm going to call them Tuesday and see what the pricing is. Thank you for the suggestion!

  • I'm sorry. I understand the "stooopid travel!" issues. My DH had a trip this month leaving the day I got a positive OPK so that wasn't ideal and next month I'm traveling around that time. So frustrating to not be able to plan or schedule things.

    Be sad. Be mad. Cry. Swear. Do something for you. I hope you feel better each day of the weekend.
