***ttca again 5/18*** the brief edition

Sorry that I skipped a week (or 2). I was on vacation! And now I'm back, but I have no computer access due to MH needing it to prepare for a very big job interview... So we will have to do it without the copying and pasting our updates from last time.

QOTW- what is your favorite beach activity?

IVF #1 ET 1 d3 embryo 10/30/11 BFP
3 Embryos frozen (1 d5, 2 d6)

DS born 07/29/12

FET #1 ET 1 d5 embryo 02/10/15 BFN

FET #2 1 d6 embryo didn't survive thaw, transferred last d6. CP :(

Re: ***ttca again 5/18*** the brief edition

  • Qotw- I love to snorkel over coral reefs, which means I really need to get back down to the Caribbean!

    Update- I'm up to 4 estrogen patches in prep for my FET. Lining check appointment is in 2 days. Let's hope that it is nice and thick!

  • @amandaleigh1 good luck at your lining check!!

    I have 3 weeks until my IVF appointment. I will figure out when I can cycle and what tests need to be redone. It has been two years since my HSG and I am hoping I don't have to redo it.

    QOTW: I like to sit in the sun and just relax, preferably with a cocktail :)

  • @Gregermis sorry for the relatively low counts. Fingers crossed that you have at least one good one in there.

    I went to my lining check yesterday and was given the green light to start progesterone, which was awesome because I was at s company outing at a baseball game. Did my first public place PIO shot!

    @Gregermis sorry about the low count. Our first IUI was under 10 million but I did get a BFP from that cycle, but it didn't stick. Have you tried Fertility Blend for men? I put DH on it after that first IUI and after 30 days on the highest dose his count had like quadrupled and he had improved motility. I highly recommend them. I started him on them again for IVF this summer.

  • Gregermis - wishing your One is in there! My DH improved count with diet early TTC, but continued to have low-normal morphology (high viscosity, pH off) - TCM herbs helped, but mildly.  Similar to pp I attribute our success in part to my 4th RE "prescribing" vitamins to my DH 3 mos prior to procedure. ... afterwards he had his first normal-normal SA (in 8 yrs TTC - there were other factors on my part that were addressed also). FX, FX, FX!

    After completing all my repeat screening to start my clomid fsh iui treatment cycle I'm
    still in limbo .My results came back with me having an elevated Tsh thyroid level so my RE told me to go see my primary dr my primary dr said they are borderline but my fertility center has a cut off for thyroid and my primary dr understands we need to restart the fertility process ASAP so that dr referred me to go see a Endocrinologist. That appt isn't until two week so needless to say I'm frustrated my cd1 just began today knowing I have all my fertility medicines pills and trigger shot sitting in dining room not knowing when I will be able to use all of it annoys me. Hoping I get to use everything sooner than later.
                     

    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) :(

  • @iloveflipflops... fx it works out for you!  I hate all the frustration of waiting.
    @1983Lindsey2... DH won't spend the money on those kinds of pills at the advice of the urologist.  He actually had plenty to start with.  His sperm just don't like the washing procedures.  19 mil/ml and 7.2 ml!  Decent total motility that after swim out only have 2.8 mil/ml

    Thanks for the encouragement ladies!
