Hi ladies! Good luck to those ladies cycling!!

((Hugs)) to everyone else who needs them!! This check-in
is open to anyone that is part of the SAIF community and is currently TTC
again, either on their own, or via injectibles,IUI, IVF, adoption, etc.

A check-in will be posted every week. Please reply to
the check-in post if you would like to be added to the group. Each check-in
will provide the opportunity for you to provide an update as to where you
currently are in your TTC. Once you get pregnant please post about your first
and second beta then move over to the pregnancy check in.

QOTW: What is your LO(s) current obesession?

TTC, without meds, hoping for a wonderful
"surprise!

bleebebebebe- I had an appointment with my RE yesterday
for a fluid ultrasound. All looked fine. So I got my calendar and a birth
control Rx. BCPs should start in about 2 weeks with my next period and meds
begin in mid March. It's kind of starting to feel real that we are really about
to go through this again. Getting nervous too....

calindi- My little guy was born in
January, and I just got my period back two days ago. So cue all the fanfare,
let's get this party started! In a perfect world, we'd want two kids
approximately 2 years apart, but we all know life doesn't always work out how
you plan, so we figured we'd play the over/under odds and get started early.
I'd rather have two kids 13 months apart than wait to start trying until my kid
was a year, figure out we needed treatment again when he was 2 years old, and
then start seeing my dream of two kids close in age become less and less
likely. So here goes nothing...

emwaiting – 6/18 We are currently off all meds and just
seeing what will happen on our own. Praying for that little miracle to happen.
You know be one of those that can say "it will happen when you quit
trying!" ha I will be 6 wks tomorrow from my last period so that is
frustrating that it won't come on it's own. If it isn't here in another week
then they will do a blood test to make sure I'm not prego and then do the meds
to start my period. Kinda hard to have that miracle without my period or
ovulating. We had to do IVF to get our DS so we are thinking we will have to go
down that road again so time to save $$ again!

fullfhope- we are TTC on our own right now, going to RE
on December 29 and we will make a plan then for going forward.

Gregermis- I'm 4dpo.  If
not pg, AF will arrive mother's day.  So hopefully I get a good mother's
day surprise!

iloveflipflops- I had my consultation with the Re last
week my treatment protocol will be a clomid+ bravelle+ovidrel IUI as soon as I
get my Hsg updated.Everything crossed this works again. Good luck to anyone
about to start a cycle or who is currently in a treatment cycle.

katekat8721-AF came and went and was horrible. We are
still trying on our own, a miracle baby would be nice but ya know. We filed our
taxes and found we'll be getting back enough to cover the FET, so that's a load
off our chest. I weaned from the pump so this cycle was all jacked up, I don't
know if I should expect AF this weekend or if it'll be another 50+ day cycle.
Annoying!

Missionobaby- Hi Everyone, I new to the forum, the 2ww
is killing me and forums has been keeping me motivated and well informed. After
3 years of TTC, DH and I have been seeing a RE for approximately a 1 year. What
i found out over the year, i had endometrisis (3/14) which lead to 3 years of
horrible menstrual cycles. After antibiotic treatment, I was told everything
should clear up. After about a year of exams of DH and I we still have not
received a clear explanation for IF. I was placed on letrozole cycle day 3-7,
started opk day 10. Went in for IUI on day 16. P4 done today and 1 week left to
test! After OV I had 3 days of cramping from left ovary and dpiui 4 to today i
have been feeling so nauseated, which i believe is really early for it to be a
cause related to treatment.

Nursey (Okitty)- AF is 4 days early--ugh. We are on our
way out* of breastfeeding so I'm hoping the change in hormones will be in our
benefit. We can't start any adoption prep until DS is 18mos, so I guess we'll
keep going the old fashioned way til then. DH broke my heart last night. Before
AF showed I speculated that my supply drop could be due to a pregnancy. He said
he got butterflies and excited thinking that it was a possibility and was
tickled at the prospect of another LO. Knife to the heart dude. He's too sweet.

MAbride0808-Cycle 3 was a bust. We are just going to
continue to TTC until our RE appointment in March.

TTC, with treatments

1983Lindsey2- I am now down almost 24 lbs and have 6.5
weeks until my IVF consult. I am hoping to lose another 10-15 by then and be a
healthy BMI. I am starting to get nervous and excited!

amandaleigh1- I am still on lupron and recovering form a
head cold (the second since D started preschool a few weeks ago). The headaches
are awesome. My baseline appointment is this Saturday. Hopefully all will be
quiet in ye olde ovaries.

Bellalou – I start opk on 7th

hham10- I've been on bcp for 3 weeks so should start
meds to prep for our fey which we expect first week of June. I truly hate bcp
I've been bleeding for weeks now.

Run20K- I transferred 2 blasts yesterday and learned
today that none of my remaining embryos were freeze quality, which makes me so
sad.

STL34-I haven't been around in a while (since my last
FET was cancelled in February). We finally transferred my lonely frozen embryo
last week. My beta is tomorrow. My insides are tied in knots! Early update -
beta was negative.

Thosethreewords- I'm waiting for AF to start my next
cycle. Hopefully, it will come late next week - having zero BCP days is making
it hard to plan life.

ON A BREAK, hoping to get back in the game soon

Re: ***ttc again check in 5/6***

  • QOTW: My son is obsessed with trains and airplanes. Most days airplanes are the favorite.

    My baseline "all is quiet" check went well. I am now building my lining up with estrogen patches. I forgot how much they hurt to peel off as they rip out all the little hairs on my belly. So awesome.

  • I don't belong here quite yet, so no need to add me to the update list. I am dipping my toe into the TTC waters - called the RE this month. Your comment about patches caught my attention. Stirred past memories and will be the near future: FET ~Sep/Oct. The nurse said if we were going to follow the RE's recommendation to re-test (PGS) we'd better schedule a re-group next month or so. BTW - My DD&DS were my lowest-graded D6 embryos! FX for your cycle!

    Hi everyone I just completed all my repeat screening blood work baseline ultrasound etc. including my Hsg last Friday.The hsg I was nervous about actually went very well this time considering how I almost jumped off the x-Ray table during my first Hsg because of being in so much pain /tears when I had it done at a hospital.So now I sit and wait for my next cycle day 1.
    QOTW: My 8 month old is really enjoying blowing raspberries.
                     

    TTC since 2012 

    Dx : DOR

    IUI #1 (Follistim switched over to Menopur injections) - BFN

    Attempted IUI #2 (Menopur injections only cycle) better response on the Menopur then the Follistim combination treatment cycle however my cycle was still canceled due to my eggs not maturing and follicles not growing enough on a high dose of Menopur (Re said I could try a cycle of comid + ovidrel  for an IUI) for my second IUI( praying this works for us)

      Clomid + Ovidrel protocol worked still a BFN as a result

    Attempted cycle  Clomid  + Ovidrel protocol for IUI # 3 (Unable to do this cycle due to a cyst)

    IUI # 3 Clomid+ Ovidrel protocol - BFP    Beta #1 752  Beta #2  1536    Beta #3 3797

    EDD 10/27/14

    Our sweet baby boy arrived on 9/2/14 TTC # 2 Conceived without help- June 2015 July 2015- Miscarriage ( blighted ovum)
    March 2016 (ectopic pregnancy) :(

    Femera TI cycle was a bust.  I am waiting on AF so that I can schedule another HSG.  My last HSG was before Lillian.  But, since we aren't looking to do IVF again (spent too much money on it so far) and I'm not ready to give up, they want me to do one.  Anyhow, it was a very miserable experience last time that ended with inconclusive results as my uterus kept having spasms (it showed both tubes blocked but it was believed it was from spasms).  I will have some sort of sedative but probably just vallium in order to see if that helps with the spasm issue.  We shall see!  If that goes well, we will likely do a few more Femera TI cycles before calling it quits.

    IVF #1 - long lupron (with HGH, intralipids, lovenox and BA); 4 retrieved, 3 fertilized; ET 2 blasts and 1 frozen = BFN

    IVF #3 April was postponed to May, May was canceled. June/July was canceled. Had a cyst aspiration and then began IVF #3 in August. ER on 8/22; ET on 8/24 with AH. +HPT on 9/5. Beta #1 (11dpo) = 3; Beta #2 (15dpo) = 29; Beta #3 (17dpo) = 60; Beta #4 (19 dpo) = 118. Heartbeat at 6 weeks 6 days =132.  Lil is here!

  • Sorry @stl34 your cycle was a bust. Good luck with your repeat hsg. My hsg was really awful, but I've done Valium for my fet transfer and I think it should help- it makes me feel pretty darn good and relaxed.

  • @STL34, sorry sweetie.  We are also doing Femara + IUI instead of another IVF.  Fx it works for both of us.  And Fx your HSG goes much more smoothly this time.  Have you had a lap?

    @Gregermis, I had a lap in 2010.  My tubes were clear during the lap.  The removed a bunch of endo at that time.  It didn't help on the fertility front, though.  Good luck with your IUI.  I don't have much hope for our TI cycles since we can't seem to get pregnant even with IVF.  But, it is better than nothing.
