Re: Low AMH Level

  • Oh and DH wanted me to thank you ladies and let you know he is very happy that I have you all:). Thank you!!!
    Me: Hashimoto Autoimune Disease
    Homozygous MTHFR Cr677
    DOR - AMH  .27 High FSH (don't even know how high)
    2 iui's to start - BFN 
    IVF 1 -3 made it do day 5!    2 5AA 1 6BB  PGS results =  all abnormal :(
    IVF 2 - stimmed for 19 days. insanity. Had 5 follicles that looked mature but only 2 contained mature eggs the others were empty.  Nothing made it to day 5
    IVF 3 - added in HGH - 4 mature follicles (had some empties again) 3 made it to day 5/6 for PGS (held for testing with next retrieval
    IVF 4 - Upped my dosage for the first time - Canceled 11 days into sims - looked like 1 follicle and we were afraid it was empty
    IVF 5 - Canceled -  looked like 1 follicle and we were afraid it was empty
    IVF 6 - 3 mature, 2 fertalized 1 made it to day 5 and sent for PGS

    Sent in IVF round 3 and 6 (4 embryos) for PGS testing and got 2 normal embryos!!!  1Boy and 1Girl. Took a little over a year to get those two embryos so demanded all sorts of test prior to attempting transfer. Did EFT, ERA and NK Cells testing.

    FET#1 - Intralipid drips, Prednisone, and did a depot lupron shot before starting the FET protocol
    Chemical pregnancy
    FET#2 - PGS normal boy - BFN
    Natural pregnancy - cycle following the FET2????   Miscarriage at 8 weeks.  viability scan had shown an enlarged yolk sac so I had been warned that it was likely not chromosonally normal :(

    DEIVF cycle - picked a donor who is willing to be open! Her cycle resulted in in 4 PGS Normal embryos
    1st transfer - chemical pregnancy
    2nd transfer - success, May 17 2020 due date!

  • @hopefuljj- omg girl you are PUPO!!! That sounds like a perfect transfer!! You got this. Good idea about the funny videos! Are you doing bed rest?! Any pic of embaby for us? I want to hear about it all!! You deserve this after all your waiting!!

    well ladies- you are all the best support! It’s been a scary 24 hours. But on the ultrasound we saw two sacs that according to my RE were where they should be for 5+5. I also have a very large SCH between the sacs, so that is where the bleeding is coming from. THey can’t do anything about it and most resolve on their own. I am stopping baby aspirin. Just praying I don’t have to much more bleeding. I don’t go back until next Tuesday. So now just taking not super easy until then. No lifting or anything like that.

    @hopefuljj. Wahoo!!!  PUPO!  Enjoy the funny videos!  

    @jamieh2000 yay!!  Congratulations on twins!  I thought it might be an sch that was the cause of the bleeding. How are you feeling? 

    @emmasemm I hope this cycle isn’t cancelled. It seems like it’s too soon to know about that. Hope things look better at your next scan.

  • Omg @jamieh2000 I have reloaded the page 100 times and never noticed there was a new page so I was starting to straight up panic over here!!!! And then I finally noticed the page is now 26!!! Thank goodness for this news!!  2 sacs!!!! So many ladies I have known had a SCH I’m starting to think with IVF it’s more common than not! Why is that?!  Lady, I’m so relieved for you!!  And thank you for the support and kind words!!!!!  

    thank you @hopeful_mom!!!! I’m so happy:). The procedure went so so smooth! We transferred one since we only have 2 after everything:). I started with the pineapple core this am.  Fun times, lol, and after I made the commute back home with DH I’m just couch chilling for the rest of the day but headed back to work tomorrow.  I’m gonna like do a really lazy stroll to the train in the am giving myself tons of time and like just try to be as chill as possible.  Seems like some walking is good to prevent blood clots?  Who knows! Lol. I cooked a TON yesterday so I can eat nice and healthy and all cooked/warm foods:). This feed so crazy.  The embryo wasn’t hatching...not from what I can tell anyway so hopefully it’s going to do that soon! Does it do that before or after implanting??  Omg ok.  What a day!!!!!!!!!

  • @jamieh2000 such awesome news! Can’t wait till next Tuesday for your next scan. 
    @hopefuljj Congrats on being PUPO! Wishing you lots of sticky vibes.  When is your beta?

    @emmasemm I agree with the other ladies on the board that it’s too early to cancel.  Did you get your blood test results?

    AFM, our eggs are on site and so will be starting my cycle soon.  But, for now I just need to get over this cold I have.

  • @hopefuljj- thank you!! We are excited about 2 maybe, but also not really counting on it until we see heart beats since vanishing twin is very common in the first tri, GLad they are only keeping you wiating until 8 days past transfer!! mine wasn't until 10days. Just try not to stress if it comes back a little lower (like 50 or something) since that is pretty early! I am so excited for you girl :)

    @adc0417- let's do this!! can't wait to hear your timeline!

    @lsatturo126- thank you!! I really hope no more issues from here on out!

  • @jamieH2000 So happy to hear that news from you today! Yes take it easy for the next week and hoping that the empty sac resolves itself on its own quickly.

    ME:39 DOR DH:41 No issues Trying since March 2015

    IUI #1-4:  Menopur injectable  - BFNs

    2018 IVF #1-3 converted to IUI due to poor response & drop in E2 - BFN

    2019 IVF #4 converted to IUI due to poor response  BFP - M/C @ 8 weeks

  • @jamieh2000 ohhhh I am sooooo happy to see the US went well. Rest up so that SCH can settle down. They do seem very common with IVF. 
    Please tell me after all this you and Dr Rogers will do a dual interview with Heather for Beat Infertility telling all the crazy steps along your journey, Or someone should make a movie of your story because it involves almost everything! Except @hopeful_mom ‘s fire vag.  It I’m sure you can work her into the story too!

    @hopefuljj omg pupo and the Beta is sooooo soon! Ooooh. I am keeping everything double crossed and triple crossed. Come on little embryo!!!!

    @adc0417 that’s a big step forward to have the eggs now! When will you move ahead to fertilize them and will you plan a fresh transfer?

    AFM we didn’t get cancelled - yet. But we’re on warning. Estrogen was barely above 50 which doesn’t correspond with the follicles on the right side, so they think they either won’t grow to mature size or if they do will be empty. So they want to see enough follicles and some growth on the left side when I go back tomorrow. I’m not feeling too hopeful... 
    Also DH is having a bit of a rough time recovering from his hernia surgery. So I’m playing nursemaid. And still working full time.
    Though he at least could mix our 7 vials tonight as last night when I did them I managed to tear my hands to pieces on the glass. Injections no problem, but breaking glass vials is not my forte!

  • @hopefuljj next week will be here before u kno it :) I also had a few Brazilian nuts a day too! I like them and r suppose to help!!! It's amazing the things we will do when we here it can help our journey in some way!  And I echo beta numbers my second time around was 75 at 9pt so on the 8th day it would've been lower, still keep takingbit easy!!! So excited for u!! How ur niece and sis doing?

    @emmasemm glad u haven't been cancelled and hope the left side gets in gear!! My E2 was never high but did rise.  Are u off all estrogen priming right now, assuming yes.  My place had us stop right before stemming so they could make sure our body was producing E2.  Glad DH could still help u out!! And yes my fire vag deserves its own chapter  :D

    @adc0417 yay for the next step good luck!! 

    @jaimeh2000 I'm still saying take it easy and I can't wait for ur follow up! Come one heartbeats :)

  • @lmajin99- thank you dear! Doing my best to be as lazy as possible, so hopefully the SCH will be smaller next week!!

    @emmasemm- haha i do think I will apply to be on Beat Infertility! She does seem to like to have Dr. Rodgers patients, so maybe I will actually have a shot! I don't think I have heard many DE stories on there, especially under 30, so maybe she would accept my story! I am crossing everything for a good estrogen rise! I feel like a day or two can make a big difference, so I am praying that happens. How did you break the glass for the injection?! Be careful chica, you do not need any extra pain right now!! Sorry to hear about your DH, he is lucky to have such a caring caretaker!!

  • @kp214 yes cycling definitely is stressful enough! How is your back???

    @hopeful_mom yes I stopped estrogen three days before stims. So I thought things should be waking up by now as it’s over 1.5 weeks

    @jamieh2000 I don’t know how I broke it, but let’s just say I’m banned from now on! And I’m sure Heather would love your story. 

    This morning was not great. Right side no movement on the three follies that have now been there three months, so they are now assumed to be cysts. Left we have one that grew from 6 to 9 mm. Maybe some very very small ones lurking but not doing anything so far. Estrogen rose from 57 to 111. Which pretty much matches the one that grew.
    Just had the call from the clinic to say if we’re ok then we keep going and then see on Friday again. That way we should know if it’s a poor cycle or just a very slow response from being over suppressed. 
    So limbo for two more days.
    In the meantime DH is struggling. And I came down with a huge migraine last night so came back home after monitoring and slept for 6 hours.

  • @emmasemm I’m sorry about the monitoring appointment:(. Gosh and the broken vial!! Yikes!  I hope DH recovery picks up, you are just dealing with too much right now!  Crossing my fingers for Friday’s monitoring to show better results, I know how frustrating this must feel:(

    2 iui's to start - BFN 
    IVF 1 -3 made it do day 5!    2 5AA 1 6BB  PGS results =  all abnormal :(
    IVF 2 - stimmed for 19 days. insanity. Had 5 follicles that looked mature but only 2 contained mature eggs the others were empty.  Nothing made it to day 5
    IVF 3 - added in HGH - 4 mature follicles (had some empties again) 3 made it to day 5/6 for PGS (held for testing with next retrieval
    IVF 4 - Upped my dosage for the first time - Canceled 11 days into sims - looked like 1 follicle and we were afraid it was empty
    IVF 5 - Canceled -  looked like 1 follicle and we were afraid it was empty
    IVF 6 - 3 mature, 2 fertalized 1 made it to day 5 and sent for PGS

    Sent in IVF round 3 and 6 (4 embryos) for PGS testing and got 2 normal embryos!!!  1Boy and 1Girl. Took a little over a year to get those two embryos so demanded all sorts of test prior to attempting transfer. Did EFT, ERA and NK Cells testing.

    FET#1 - Intralipid drips, Prednisone, and did a depot lupron shot before starting the FET protocol
    Chemical pregnancy
    FET#2 - PGS normal boy - BFN
    Natural pregnancy - cycle following the FET2????   Miscarriage at 8 weeks.  viability scan had shown an enlarged yolk sac so I had been warned that it was likely not chromosonally normal :(

    DEIVF cycle - picked a donor who is willing to be open! Her cycle resulted in in 4 PGS Normal embryos
    1st transfer - chemical pregnancy
    2nd transfer - success, May 17 2020 due date!

    @hopefuljj that was funny, “eggciting.”  I, too, ate pineapple core and drank pomegranate juice as well.  I figured that it couldn’t hurt to do those things. 

    @adc0417 sorry to read that you have a cold. Hoping you’re better soon. 

    @JamieH2000 try to rest and relax as much as you can. I don’t know about anyone else, but I worried the whole time I was pregnant.  I think this journey makes us so aware of all the things that can happen, and worry and stress become a part of our lives. I hope it’s not that way for you. Try to enjoy being pregnant today; very hard to do, I know. 

    @emmasemm no wonder you had a migraine with all the stress, hormones, monitoring appointments, and care taking you are doing. Please take some time to care for yourself. I hope and pray that more follicles make an appearance on Friday. 

    Afm, my back is feeling better. The chiropractor’s decompression therapy seems to be working; however, I have an appointment with an orthopedic spine surgeon tomorrow to discuss my options under different scenarios... if I’m pregnant, if I should wait to transfer, how long is the recovery time if I need surgery, etc.

    @hopefuljj- how are you hangin in there?! only 5 more days, just keep busy this weekend and you got this!

    @kp214- thanks girl, i do understand what you mean. I am trying to enjoy what I can right now, since I have never gotten here before. The spotting is still continuing, but I am just trying to accept that this is "normal" with having a SCH and not let it ruin my mood everytime I see it, but its hard. Glad to hear your back is feeling better, how did it go with the surgeon today? I am so hoping you won't need surgery and have to delay anything!

  • Hello ladies! BFN on Tuesday :( so waiting for day 1 to roll around and get the next steps. I was frustrated because I started having what I thought were symptoms but then researched that they are common with progesterone pills. Has anyone had that experience? I also didn’t realize taking them delays AF... I thought I was late :( 

    Does the RE usually have you come back into the office before prescribing clomid? Or do they prescribe it without the visit? I know all doctors vary, but trying to prepare if they want me to come in again.

    @JamieH2000 I know what you mean. I think everything you are feeling is normal. For me, much of the excitement was diminished due to fear since it had been such a struggle. However, the sporting is normal with the sch. Keep reminding yourself of that. The surgeon said I don’t need surgery, that I need to strengthen my core, which I’ve known, and can keep doing the decompression therapy to help with the nerve compression.  I’m to do PT to learn the exercises.  So, yay for no surgery. 

    @emmasemm good luck tomorrow!  I hope you have a great scan with lots of little ones that have caught up. 

    @Knottie1437180317 I think I had symptoms while on progesterone. It sucked. I’m sorry for the bfn.

    @Kp214 so happy you don’t need surgery for your back.  Hopefully you can strengthen your core and move on to bigger plans.

    @emmasemm good luck tomorrow girl!

    So, I have my transfer date 7/18.  Nervous and hoping everything goes smooth from here on.  They are expecting me to bleed now since I came off bcp 2 days ago, but I just have some spotting here and there.

  • @adc0417 woohoo for a date! Let the countdown begin, 18 is a great day!!

    @emmasemm fingers crossed for a good update!!  Do u think the right side would respond better if the cysts were removed?

    @hopefuljj I love how supportive ur sister is and ur niece must've looked adorable!! Trust me I look forward to u all joining the other side!!
    tw baby mentioned 
    Right now I wish I could say motherhood is the greatest thing ever but these first few weeks r tough!! She's the love of my life but hates sleeping at night.  It's a lil after 5, she's fed, clean and changed and still won't sleep....screaming at the top of her lungs.  
    All we ever wanted is this moment and I feel guilty not loving every second of it...
    she had hiccups in my tummy all the time and I loved feeling them, now I hate it! her lil body gets all into it, I'm afraid it hurts her! 

    @JamieH2000 I echo everything @kp214 said! I always worried and literally up until I delivered I looked at every wipe once I spotted! With everything u have been through it's normal!

  • @adc0417 that’s great about the transfer date! Did you already start on estrogen or will that be after your withdrawal bleed from the BCP?

    @hopeful_mom I have asked the nurse if the doctor can try to drain them if we do an ER this time. Problem is two of them are really small only 4-5mm, so not really much to drain and based on my E2 levels they are definitely not functional.
    And I’m sorry these first weeks are not all roses and unicorns. I guess when you’ve wanted it so long you think it will be perfect, and real life is, well, real. These tough days (and nights) will soon seem like a million miles away and you will look back on them fondly one day. If not the human race would have died out long ago!

    Thanks for all the positive vibes!
    Well there was at least something to see on the ultrasound today.
    Lining is trilaminar but with a polyp at one end. Which is only a concern if they cancel and we would try on our own this month.
    Right ovary - two follicles no change, but one of them has grown and is now at 14mm. So maybe it’s a proper follicle after all.
    Left ovary - two at 12mm, two small ones appeared still under 7mm. Then at the bottom it might be a big follicle or it might be a cyst as it’s not completely dark inside on the US, but it’s now 15mm.
    E2 has risen from 111 to 241 which is good but I think probably only suggests two eggs growing. LH is still low at 5.
    So I’ve taken my first cetrotide tonight, then will take it every morning. And we keep on stimming over the weekend and go back for more bloods and US on Monday - but still remote. I guess they might want to see me Tuesday but I’m pleased they’re not rushing to trigger too early after last time.
    Still feel a bit in limbo and the migraine has subsided pretty much.
    DH on the other hand looks like he’s been in a fight - his privates look like someone painted a rainbow on them - as all the blood in the wrong place after surgery has pooled there (lowest hanging parts!). But he’s definitely much more mobile and seems to be healing well.

    @hopefuljj hope you’re managing to stay somewhat calm whilst waiting for beta!

  • @emmasemm Glad to hear the ultrasound was positive for you this morning!

    @adc0417 Awesome you got a transfer date, I may not be too far behind you with my cycle and ER and transfer.

    @Kp214 Phew, no surgery! Keep up with the pt and hopefully you will start feeling more relieve.

    @Knottie1437180317 I have always had horrible symptoms from the progesterone, for me it felt like PMS symptoms X10.  Although, it never seemed to delay my time of month. 

    @JamieH2000 How are you doing and feeling?

    AFM: I am applying my androgel every morning.  Been feeling a lot of tension lately not sure if its from the gel.  We are off to Las Vegas next week for a few days.  Much needed break!  Will be coming back and hoping my period will start on time and will have a better idea of dates for ER.

    @emmasemm  yes!  Sorry that it is limbo though. It’s not over until it’s over. Come on follicles, grow!  Glad the migraine has subsided and your dh is doing better.

  • @Hopeful_mom hang in there with your lo! It is normal to feel overwhelmed and anxious, the lack of sleep doesn’t help with that! Make sure to tell your doctor or your hubby if you do not feel right or you cannot seem to feel happy. Your hormones are doing a million different things right now! 

    @JamieH2000 I’m still thinking of you and I’m sorry you are going through so much right now! Lots of Netflix and relaxation. You are doing everything right!

  • @hopeful_mom my sisters daughter was the same way with hiccups inside and then they carried on outside! It made me panic all the time when she was really little!! and she was jus like, it’s fine, she’s been hiccuping since as long as I can remember.   I so so hope you get some sleep and peace soon! I know it must be very very hard! Don’t feel guilty about being human and experiencing the really hard stuff just as it is, hard!!! 


    @adc0417 yay for transfer date!!!  AF will probably show in one or 2 more days post stopping BC.  Very exciting!!!

    @emmasemm I’m glad the estrogen has risen and it looks like there are a couple good follies growing!  I hope this weekend brings lots of good even growth to the follies in the running!  I hope those 2 12’s and that 14 can all syncs up!  Your estrogen might rise too when the 12ms get a little bigger:). Poor DH! My gosh!!!  Glad he’s more mobile and hope his healing continues to quicken! 

    @kp214 YAY for no surgery!!! I hope the PT exercises are helpful! 

    @Knottie1437180317  I’m sorry about the negative:( I have def been there with the progesterone symptoms:(. Yet somehow not having them with the PIO shots?!  But I have def gotten my hopes up using the inserts only to be disappointed later:(. I don’t remember having to go back before starting another clomid round with my first RE. Oh and progesterone def gives me PMS rage.  Shots or inserts. Lol.  No fun at all!

    IVF 5 - Canceled -  looked like 1 follicle and we were afraid it was empty
    IVF 6 - 3 mature, 2 fertalized 1 made it to day 5 and sent for PGS

    Sent in IVF round 3 and 6 (4 embryos) for PGS testing and got 2 normal embryos!!!  1Boy and 1Girl. Took a little over a year to get those two embryos so demanded all sorts of test prior to attempting transfer. Did EFT, ERA and NK Cells testing.

    @JamieH2000 Twinsies, I had no doubt ;) congrats x 2. As soon as I read about your bleeding I figured SCH was to blame. I was fortunate enough not to have that scare but the twin mommy who started this thread dealt with that and I could imagine the fear it caused you.

  • @Imajin99 whenever I take any medication in my luteal phase I am super tense! Hope you enjoy Vegas. We’ve been a few times and got married there - though we do not gamble at all, just enjoy all the facilities and shows.

    @kp214 hope your back continues to improve! 

    @hopefuljj keeping everything crossed for you for tomorrow!

    @jamieh2000 When is your next scan? Do you have one today or Tuesday or am I going crazy? Hope you had a relaxing weekend.

    AFM
    Scan this morning did show a bit of progress, though still quite slow.
    Right went from 14mm to 16mm and one of the small ones that was 5mm is now 9mm. I don’t think that one is going to catch up though.
    Left went from two at 12mm to one at 14mm and one at 16mm.
    Will have to wait 4-5 more hours for my E2 numbers but I feel it should increase as the volume of EWCM I have is crazy. 
    Unless the blood work is a disaster I will travel to London tomorrow to get a scan and bloods done in the clinic so they can see my mysterious ovaries and uterus for themselves. 
    I think my biggest challenge is to convince them to keep going for potentially only three follicles and to not let them get trigger happy and trigger too early. I know all the research says AMA patients should trigger a few millimeters smaller than average- but it seems like I’m an exception and get better results with average to bigger follicles... 
    And DH is back to work, but oh wow he is still rainbow colored and if any muscles tighten he gets a lot of pain. Clearing out the system is going to be interesting as is giving the sample itself. Let’s just say it’s not really pleasurable for him at the moment ;-)

  • @emmasemm oh I’m sending all the best vibes to those growing follies! Slow and steady wins the race!!  I’m so interested to see what the London clinic says about your mysterious ovaries and uterus!  Maybe you can share all past follicle sizes at trigger and outcome to paint a picture of what has and hasn’t  worked for you in the past?

    poor DH!  Glad he is able to go back to work and on the mend, but I sure hope he is truly feeling better and out of pain soon!

    AFM just going bonkers over here before tomorrow’s beta. No symptoms other than a sore left side of my left boob but even that comes and goes and is mild:(    Trying to stay positive but it’s not easy.  I am way too terrified to POAS, so I will go into the city for blood draw and then am heading back out of the city to work from home so that I receive the news at home safe and sound with my cat.

  • @emmasemm- that progress sounds very hopeful!  SLow and steady hopefully so those smaller ones can catch up. I really hope your estrogen is starting to exponentially increase! they will proceed with 2-3 follicles for ER right? You are such an inspiration to us all- I can't imagine going thru all this while traveling between countries!

    @hopefuljj- I totally get it- I was going crazy before my beta too! I was convinced it didn't work if you remember! Its just WAY too early for any symptoms. praying SO hard you get the best news ever tomorrow. i am going to be checking constantly!!

    @capps42613- thanks girl! I should have known that even if i got pregnant it wouldn't be a smooth road! Lots of success stories with SCH, but also of course some that are not good. Just praying i see at least one heartbeat tomorrow and then we go from there.

    Sorry I missed you all this weekend! I was up north at my family's cabin and it wasn't very relaxing given i had alot of spotting friday night. It has since stopped and I pray it stays away, but super nervous for our ultrasound tomorrow. I will be 6+6 so we really need to see heartbeats at this point.

    DOR - AMH  .27 High FSH (don't even know how high)
    2 iui's to start - BFN 
    IVF 1 -3 made it do day 5!    2 5AA 1 6BB  PGS results =  all abnormal :(
    IVF 2 - stimmed for 19 days. insanity. Had 5 follicles that looked mature but only 2 contained mature eggs the others were empty.  Nothing made it to day 5
    IVF 3 - added in HGH - 4 mature follicles (had some empties again) 3 made it to day 5/6 for PGS (held for testing with next retrieval
    IVF 4 - Upped my dosage for the first time - Canceled 11 days into sims - looked like 1 follicle and we were afraid it was empty
    IVF 5 - Canceled -  looked like 1 follicle and we were afraid it was empty
    IVF 6 - 3 mature, 2 fertalized 1 made it to day 5 and sent for PGS

    Sent in IVF round 3 and 6 (4 embryos) for PGS testing and got 2 normal embryos!!!  1Boy and 1Girl. Took a little over a year to get those two embryos so demanded all sorts of test prior to attempting transfer. Did EFT, ERA and NK Cells testing.

    FET#1 - Intralipid drips, Prednisone, and did a depot lupron shot before starting the FET protocol
    Chemical pregnancy
    FET#2 - PGS normal boy - BFN
    Natural pregnancy - cycle following the FET2????   Miscarriage at 8 weeks.  viability scan had shown an enlarged yolk sac so I had been warned that it was likely not chromosonally normal :(

    DEIVF cycle - picked a donor who is willing to be open! Her cycle resulted in in 4 PGS Normal embryos
    1st transfer - chemical pregnancy
    2nd transfer - success, May 17 2020 due date!

  • @hopefuljj I love that you will get your beta call with your cat! I’ve become a big fan of “elgatoivf” on instagram. The cat is the companion of a couple who are also struggling with DOR. I didn’t persuaded DH to let me get a cat yet though... *sigh*

    @jamieh2000 oh gosh 6+6 already, how did that happen!!!

    You will both be in my thoughts tomorrow 

    Short update - estrogen was almost 600 which says to me that we should have three eggs growing in there... which would be awesome if we can get 3 mature ones. The follicle growth is really slow this time, so not sure of their quality- but only one way to find out! 
    @hopeful_mom I really don’t want to trigger unless we have one close to 20mm... or even a bit more than that... let’s see what measurements the clinic gets tomorrow themselves... 
    Bad news is to get there I have to get up at 0430 to go to the airport. Which means @hopeful_mom will still be awake when I get up most likely!

  • I'm not sure what happened, but that post about the progesterone delay was me! Thanks for the feedback.

    They wanted me to come in today (CD4) and I had bloodwork and an US. They gave me a prescription for clomid, but then called back this afternoon and told me not to take it. They said that my estrogen level is raised and I have a follicle growing. Has this happened to anyone?? Is this a good thing?? They want me to come back on Friday after doing the BD on Thu. Originally they didn't want me to come back until the 12th. 

    I just wanted to thank everyone again for sharing their experiences. I literally have no idea what I'm doing and have so much anxiety about it. I was just talking to my husband and said that I don't know how people work these appointments around their jobs. I am so afraid it will look negatively on me because I have so many appointments. I'm sorry I am so scatterbrained right now - just internalizing a lot of my thoughts!
