QOTW: What kind of TWW person are you—wait for AF or beta or POASaholic?
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- we had sex, now we wait. It's so weird to be at the beginning of this crazy train again. I can't really bring myself to hope - I keep finding myself just thinking of it as checking boxes towards resuming treatment next year. As we were unexplained, it certainly could happen, but I just don't feel like it will. More than 22 failed cycles last time just makes me think something needed that Follistim and IUI. Or maybe we even got lucky with that. That's a rabbit hole of worry I try not to let myself go down.
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.
iloveflipflops- 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.
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 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.
amandaleigh1- I'm up to 4 estrogen patches in prep for my FET. Lining check appointment is in 2 days. 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!
Bellalou – Appt on Thursday with RE. Had 8.75mm fluid in ute. Need hysterectomy. I'm gonna try for last 2 embryos til I hafta pay for storage and I'll probably be all done. Maybe not even that long. I'm exhausted and the fluid is beating me.
Deeds1017- I am waiting in AF so I can start my meds.
Gregermis- had mid cycle monitoring today. Lining looks good. Looks like they will have me trigger tomorrow evening for IUI on Friday am. update: had IUI, only 2.8 mil total motile. UGH! My DH's sperm just don't like the IUI prep procedure
hham10- I just stopped bcp Saturday and have been taking Lupron for a week I go in for my check Thursday and start patches Saturday. Things are moving along.
KK_8721-Hi all. I'm still on BCP until the 10th or so, then I'll start lupron. All is quiet for now which is nice because the girls' bday is in a week and a half so I can just focus on that! I'm getting more and more excited as time goes on. I've been looking through the girls baby pics for their party and it's giving me all the newbie baby feels! I still hate BCP though. Makes me ragey and weird haha. Hoping all the estrogen I'll be on for the FET doesn't make me a huge nut
Run20K- I transferred 2 blasts yesterday and learned today that none of my remaining embryos were freeze quality, which makes me so sad.
STL34- 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.
SUG92- Good luck to everyone! I had my IUI yesterday so I'm crossing my fingers! Baby dust to everyone.
Thosethreewords- I'm day 7 of stims. I had 14 follies on Sunday. My E2 was 99 on day 4 and 250 on day 6 - which for me is absolutely amazing and higher than it ever has been. I go back for monitoring tomorrow. This is where my last cycle started falling apart...so hopefully, things are still going well. Update: They got 9 eggs from me - a record! 4 were mature, 3 matured overnight. None of the first four fertilized. I'm waiting for the call about the other three...but I really doubt anything happened with them. Apparently, the sperm was really bad. Nothing bound when they did the HA Binding test. I hate waiting for a call with bad news. ETA - got the call. Nothing fertilized. The sperm looked very bad and we are going to go back to the andrologist to see what he thinks our next move should be. I'm so sad.
ON A BREAK, hoping to get back in the game soon
