  • @TaylorMichel welcome! My numbers are on the low end of normal for my age, but my RE is also surprised by just how poor my response was and keeps talking about how she should be able to do better. Good luck with your next cycle!

    @BlueEyedDreamer It's totally fair to be thrown for a loop after a CP. My last one - in April - was much harder on me than previous ones. I even sought out a counselor who specializes in IF counseling. Do whatever you need to take care of you. Thinking of you!

    Thinking of you ladies, @sleepyrn and @emgem819. Big hugs!

    @BornReady I knew around stim day 6/7. FX a few more pick up the pace!

    @chicandbubbly big congrats!

    @nuttymask I am literally covered in little bruises everywhere. 14 days - some morning and night - meant nearly 20 separate bruises. :-/

  • @msirni0 Congrats on the beautiful embaby! It's crazy how cute they are :)

    I have just uploaded a new post on the raw emotions of dealing with external "triggers," including pregnancy announcements, baby showers, etc. Telling you a true story of pain and moving through it (the best way I know). https://realinfertility.wordpress.com/2016/06/20/dealing-with-outside-triggers/

  • @wifeinraleigh28 Sending you lots of hugs!! 

    We just got word today that IUI #2 failed!! So onto IVF, only good part about the nurses call was that she is going to try to get my approval faster than anticipated and that maybe just maybe I can start the bc pills this week instead of having to wait until later July to start anything!! So here's hoping they can get the approval.

  • Thank you everyone for all your kind thoughts!  It means so much to have all your support!  There's so much going on this week I'm trying to keep track!

    @msirni0 great looking embryo!  Congrats on being PUPO and I hope the 2ww isn't too painful.

    @UnicornsPlease welcome!  I also dealt with nausea during stimming with gonal-f and menopur.  Along with bloating and migraines it was pretty rough!  I'm sorry you've been hit hard with nausea and I hope you can get some relief once your retrieval happens.  

    AFM had a Followup with my RE today to see what she thinks went wrong with my last cycle.  She said in most Ivf failures it's 80% due to the embryo, 20% due to the uterus.  So she's pretty sure just by luck of the draw that a "abnormal" embryo was put in (I only had one put in and didn't have PGS testing) and that's the reason why it didn't take.  My uterine lining looked great and my levels were all perfect.  So with 7 embryos left on ice we are just going to try again once AF starts so @wifeinraleigh28 looks like I'll be doing my FET #2 in mid-July!  Happy we can jump right into it and hopeful for the lucky embryo that will work this next time around.  I really want to put in two next time but that's the one thing dh is absolutely putting his foot down on so we will only do one.  I know it's the right thing to do just would love our chances to be better with two.

  • My Dr has me on birth control to suppress the ovaries before I prep for IVF. Today is my 12th day on BC (started right after my last period ended) and I had some rogue spotting this evening.

    It's been a while since I've been on BC, but is that normal? My system is usually quite predictable, so I'm a little concerned over spotting less than two weeks after my period ended.

    Has anyone had this? Or does anyone have thoughts as to what's causing it?

  • @LeFemmeViolette I had the same exact thing happen right before I started this cycle of stims. My nurse said it's not uncommon for women on the first month of pills, and it hasn't adversely affected my cycle at all. No real word on WHY it happened, but seems more a nuisance than anything else.

  • @LeFemmeViolette - I did not do BCP for my IVF cycle but I've been on various types of BC for more than a decade. I often had breakthrough spotting. Pretty normal, though never a bad thing to call and let your RE know.

    @LittleSunshine really great numbers! Hope lots of eggs are mature and make it through the PGS!

  • @LittleSunshine wow, 42 eggs, that's great. How are you feeling???
    @kfras we will be retrieval buddies, since I was bumped to Wednesday. Sounds like you have some good measurable follies. Good luck today for your hubby.
    @Foxy8609 congrats, that's so exciting!!!
    @emgem819 I'm sorry your 1st didn't work, but having 7 on ice is ahhhh-mazing and the fact you get to move so quickly is great. We didn't do the testing bc of $$ and from what I have read and seen, the testing doesn't guarantee a BPF, just spares you the guessing of which egg to put in. 
    AFM: they bumped my RE up from Friday to Wednesday. As of yesterday, there were about 13 measurable follies, with estrogen around 3745, so we will see tomorrow what that leads to.
    Hope everyone has a good day, being that I don't have to touch any injections today is a good start

  • @ADRIANAC1982 Sorry about the IUI BFN, but exciting to be moving on to IVF! I wish I had been able to move directly to IVF after my IUI, but took a cycle off. In retrospect, I should have requested to do the BCPs right off the bat while waiting for BCBS to approve my IVF. Fingers crossed things move quickly and you can start sooner than later. My insurance authorization only took about 14 days. 

    @emgem819 Glad you get to move on from this cycle soon and that you have some frosties waiting for you! Best of luck!

    @BornReady I def hope it does not take 14 days, because I should start the bc by Saturday....For the IUI were were very last minute but got the approval pushed through within like 48 hours.  I love BCBS of MA, but their pre-approval stuff makes me nervous especially because everything with infertility is timed

  • @msirni0 @annebenton22  Yes this was my first embryo transfer and the worst 2ww ever! It's moving at a glacial pace and does not help that work is not that busy this week. I'm doing acupuncture again today, so hopefully that will help me relax a bit. 


  • @LittleSunshine  Lol at trying to fist bump everyone!  That gave me a good chuckle this morning :)

    @LeFemmeViolette  I started BC on day 6 of my cycle, since that is the day I had my Dr appt, and I had brown spotting the entire time.  After 2 weeks on the BC I started having bad cramps and a couple days of light red bleeding.  Luckily, I got the go ahead to go off the BC and begin my IVF stims.  I'm a little worried when it comes time for the FET that the BC isn't going to control my cycle like it should!

    i also have bcbs ppo of Massachusetts. I didn't need an auth for IUI and was told by them I didn't need one for IVF too, but apparently did. FX for you. My auth process began over a holiday weekend, so i imagine that added to the delay. Hope it moves faster for you!

    Thanks for the warm welcome, @BornReady and @wifeinraleigh28!

    We are moving to Kazakhstan for my husband's job. We were expecting to move to the UK up until about 2 months ago so it's kind of a sudden twist. It's been very stressful trying to figure out how to fit fertility treatments into an international move. Our US insurance runs out when we move so if we don't get pregnant this time then we will probably try again in about a year somewhere in Europe. 

    Does anyone know if it's possible to change your user name?

  • @msirni0 Congrats on your beautiful embaby and good luck during the TWW!

    @Knottie17863111 Welcome! I hope everything goes well for your upcoming cycle.

    AFM - I am on day 6 of Lupron injections to get ready for my FET and I am finally starting to feel normal again, slowly. I have noticed something that is making me very nervous. I have been feeling sharp pains in my ovaries similar to the pain I felt while stimming. I am worried that I still have a couple of follicles growing. I have an appointment on Friday to check my suppression and I feel like it won't go well and they will end up moving my transfer back which would be devastating.

    Any advice?

    Me: 27 DH: 26
    TTC since Dec 2013
    Dx: Male Factor - Low Count/Morphology
    IUI not an option due to low count
    1st IVF starts in April
  • So... what is the deal with sex during stims. My doctor said no sex during stims at our IVF consult and the nurse said nothing 2 days before ER. Do we leave DH to his own devices? The fact that I even have to wonder about these things is amazing to me. Who knew I"d be worried about when NOT to have sex when trying to make a baby!

    @wifeinraleigh28 thank you! Beta is July 1! How are you doing? When do you start stims?

    @knottie17863111 welcome! Wow you have quite a bit going on! FX that everything works out for you guys!

    @adrianac1982 hope everything goes through quickly for you! GL and welcome
    to the IVF club! Sucks to be here, but if you are anything like me, the constant stuff that is going on will make it mentally easier than the IUI process. You got this ;)

    @annebenton22 and @mjacks16 glad you're in this wait with me! Hope it goes by fast for us and we all get great news soon! I'm trying to just stay busy as much as I can and not think too much about it. I've been doing some meditating and positive affirmations to help me be patient.

    Also--just got an email from my nurse and we have 4 frosties :) I am really thrilled with the results of this cycle and hearing that makes every last needle so worth it!

    (edited bc I put the wrong beta date originally...overexcited! Haha)
