    ndz2018
  • @ndz2018 ahhhhhh!!!  So excited for you!!! This makes me want  to test but I’m holding out In case my hope only goes until test.... and then we get bad news. But your success is making me so excited. 

    Totally symptom spotting: peeing all the time, super thirsty, breasts are twice the size. This progesterone is a mother f-er how it makes you feel pregnant! Praying it's for real!

    @ndz2018 and @mkr_0128-- hoping your good luck rubs off on the rest of us!

  • @ndz2018 Sqquuuuuueeeeeeeeeee!!! I am so so excited for you! Really - after all you have been through - you deserve this so much <3<3
    @leilee101 Thank you <3 Yay - we should have similar schedules :)
    @wishing-and-hoping Thank you <3
    @suzycupcake Yay for an FET date!! I won't get a date until the end of next week, but if it follows my previous protocols I should be in on either 29/30 November - so we may be transfer buddies :)
    manders85-2 Arrgh - symptom spotting is the worst! It's so hard to tell if it's from pregnancy or all the drugs trying to help your body get pregnant. Someone needs to develop ivf drugs that don't have pregnancy-like side effects!! But well done on holding out as long as you have - that ain't easy. Only a couple more days until Beta - you got this <3

  • @mbradfo2 - They did prescribe me that, but it's $250 for 3 vials versus $30. This is our seventh FET in 17 months with ZERO insurance coverage (with another IVF cycle very possible), so money is pretty tight.
    **History in Spoiler**
    Me-35, DH-36 - TTC since 08/10
    Me - anovulatory, non-Insulin PCOS, DH - low end of "normal" sperm count
       IUI#1   - 02/15 - Cancelled due to scrubbed sperm count <1MM
       IVF#1  - 08/15 - 13x5-day blastocysts (ranging from AA-BB, most are 5 or 6), not PGS, on ice
       FET#1 - 10/15 - 1 emb - BFP (DD 07/16) (estrace + PIO sesame oil + prometrium)
       FET#2 - 07/17 - 1 emb - BFN (estrace + PIO sesame oil + prometrium)
       FET#3 - 08/17 - 1 emb - BFN (estrace + PIO sesame oil + prometrium)
       FET#4 - 10/17 - 2 emb - BFN (changed to estrace + prometrium because of allergic reaction to PIO sesame oil)
    ERA Testing - 12/17 - window moved (-1 day)
       FET#5 - 03/18 - 2 emb - BFN (estrace + prometrium, ERA-timing used)

       FET#7 - 10/18 - 2 emb - BFN (estrace + prometrium, ERA-timing used)
       FET#8 - 11/18 - 2 emb - BFP; looks like one baby is going to make it, DD is due 8/16 (though likely to be 8/9)


  • @MamaK225
    Ooof, I didn't even notice the price because I was already paying 5k+ for all of the other meds! It seemed cheap in comparison, haha. Then yeah, probably the only things you can do are benadryl -- you could try a benadryl cream if you get itchy patches (I did around the injection sites) or even a hydrocortisone. I didn't have the ethyl oleate during my TWW (didn't complain about the reactions until I realized I was going to be on it longer >.> ) and I used oral benadryl and some hydrocortisone on the itchy areas. It was still pretty bad until I switched though...

    You might be able to see if they can get you any prednisone if it gets pretty bad (and some use prednisone to help with implantation anyway).

    FX for success and sticky beans this time around! And then you can whine about the reaction until you are blue in the face :smiley:  Did you do PIO with your DD? 


    ~~ Our Story in Spoiler! TW loss/child~~
    Fall 2012 -- started TTC
    Summer 2015 - no BFP yet, labs normal, referred to RE
    Fall 2015 - Summer 2016 - Further testing all normal. 3 IUI's -- BFN. Recommended move to IVF. Planned cycle for fall 2016.
    September 2016 - Surprise natural BFP. MMC @ 8 weeks. RE expressed confidence that we just needed the 'right' embryo.
    Fall 2016 - Spring 2017 -- Break from TTC
    June 2017 - Started IVF; egg retrieval for freeze all cycle. 9 mature eggs retrieved, 5 fertilized. 2 4BB embies on ice.
    August 2017 - FET transfer both embies. BFP.  Twin pregnancy confirmed by ultrasound. EDD 4/28/18
    September 2017 - Twin B stopped developing; Twin A doing perfectly! Graduated from RE @ 10 weeks
    March 2018 - Baby Girl born via C/S due to pre-eclampsia -- strong and healthy!
    January 2021 - tentatively planning ER #2 for bebe #2 -- another freeze all cycle.


  • Well ladies I was right. Beta came back at 8. I still have to go for the second one tomorrow anyways. I had a feeling something was wrong when my spotting didn't stop (weirdly yesterday I didn't have any all day), and then when the lines got fainter I just knew it wasn't good. I'm going to take a break from all these boards while we figure out if I'll fly back to my other clinic or start fresh at one here. Thank you all so much for your support through the whole journey, and I hope you all have smooth progression from here!! Hopefully I don't see any of you on future boards come January/February 😉

    Ladies! The past few days have been crazy at work, which I guess is a good thing because it **sort of** takes my mind off things. I wanted to catch up with everyone!

    @suzycupcake welcome to the group!!

    @roisis welcome also! Saw your history and you've been through so much. Sending you all the positive vibes that this is it for you. What's your medication protocol? Wondering if they have you on any type of steroids for this round?

    @hclausen85 how are you feeling PUPO?!

    @ndz2018 beta tomorrow!! How are you feeling?!! It's gonna be such a strong number :)

    @MamaK225 how are the meds treating you? When is your transfer? I am thinking of you!!

    @Lauren3617 @manders85-2 @wishing-and-hoping ughhh you guys this wait is absolutely killing me at this point. @manders85-2 I'm with you and going all the way until beta without testing (I promised my DH). Our first fresh transfer I tested when I started spotting, got a positive, but then essentially watched us lose the pregnancy which was awful. Second transfer (first frozen) I was convinced it worked, tested three days before my beta only to get a BFN but still had to do the PIO shots and everything until it was "official" which was absolute hell. SO I literally promised myself I would wait it out this time around. It's just so hard because I want to know so bad. But I'm also terrified, so lol.

    The progesterone side effects suck. I have so many weird symptoms and I keep going back and forth in my head like did it work or is it just the meds...ugh, one more week!!!!!

  • @ellemarie7, I tested last night with super diluted urine on a cheapie Amazon stick and got a negative and it bummed me out so much, my husband and I decided to wait until tomorrow for our morning urine, FRER test. It still made me feel super down and nervous about getting a BFN. At this point I would be really pleasantly surprised if we get a BFP tomorrow. ughhhh!

  • @manders85-2 UGH  i'm sorry sweetie. Those internet cheapies can suck sometimes so ya never know! FX tomorrow morning you get your BFP!!!

    @ellemarie7 Hey doll! Doing ok and surprisingly calm.  I don't really have many symptoms as of yet my boobs are sore but that could be from the PIO . My only complaint is my sleeping has been crappy. I can only hope my beta is high number!! I tested again last night with a FRER and it was just as dark. I want to test tomorrow with a digital because you HCG needs to be above 50 to turn that one and if I turn it i'll feel much better going into the beta. Also i promised my DH not to test either when I told him I bought one he said " Your impatience for the things you want is boundless"  :D

  • @mbradfo2, when I tested last night i was 7dp5dt. I had been peeing every hour though (as is common for me the last three days) so I know it wasn't concentrated urine AND it was an internet cheaper. Tomorrow is 9dp5dt, do you think I still have a chance?

  • @manders85-2 you're def not out! If you're going to test, try to do it first thing in the morning so the urine is concentrated. Peeing alot is also a good sign :)

    Thinking of all the ladies in the TWW! Good luck at beta tomorrow @ndz2018!! and @hclausen85 that is a beautiful embryo!

    @mkr_0128 so sorry again about your CP. Any set back in this process sucks so hard, but it's a special kind of suck to see those two little lines and have it taken away. Thinking of you and hoping you are able to get back at it soon. You still have frozen embie(s) at your old clinic, right?

    First lining check is finalllly tomorrow. I feel like it's been forever since my baseline! Is is bad that I have been taking an extra estrodial every night. Last time it took 17 days to build my lining up so I wanted to help move it along :/

  • Thanks @leilee101 for your support. That gives me a little calm amidst my terrible worry that this cycle is done. 
    Congrats on getting to lining check day tomorrow!! I feel good that you're going to be thick! Let us know when you do! 

    @hclausen85 that was one hatching, beautiful embryo!!!! So exciting!

  • @ellemarie7 - Feeling ok, boobs are starting to get sore and feeling a little sluggish, but that's about it. Tomorrow I move up to 2mg, 3x so ... not looking forward to that. How are you doing/feeling? FET is scheduled for 11/28, pending good lining and hormone levels on 11/21.

    @manders85-2 - Awww, I wouldn't say that necessarily. 2 hours does not always concentrated urine make :) When is your beta? I would wait for that. I have found that POAS only makes me more anxious than just waiting. FX for you!!

       IVF#1  - 08/15 - 13x5-day blastocysts (ranging from AA-BB, most are 5 or 6), not PGS, on ice

       FET#4 - 10/17 - 2 emb - BFN (changed to estrace + prometrium because of allergic reaction to PIO sesame oil)

  • @AlohaKumu yay that’s great news! 

    My lining this cycle started at baseline at a 2.3 which is of course the lowest it’s every been. I’m sure because I just had two d&cs recently. It’s been lingering around 5.6mm. I’m supposed to go back tomorrow to see if my transfer will still be 11/21 and for me to start PIO tomorrow. Anyone have issues with thin lining? I’ve never dealt with this before

    @manders85-2 try to hold out until beta tomorrow...we're all here for you. No matter what, it will be alright and you are not alone!!

    @leilee101 good luck and FX crossed for a kick ass lining tomorrow!

    @MamaK225 the 3x estrogen dosage killed me this cycle. I was a literal psycho lol. I'll be thinking of you haha - hang in there! It just means your transfer is coming soon!!!! I'm feeling okay, going kind of crazy but it is what it is. I thought the third time around I'd be a little more chill but I'm not really. Oh well lol

    @AlohaKumu that's great news!!!

    @beachbunnyxo123 could be from the D&Cs...are you taking a baby aspirin? I did for this cycle, and my lining was the thickest it's been. Not sure if it's from that, the acupuncture or my scratch but worth looking into?..***EDIT - just looked at the spreadsheet and saw you are taking BA! Hmmm...

  • @AlohaKumu - two weeks to go with a baseline of 6 for lining is great! congrats. Sorry about the estrace, the blue discharge killed me on that stuff. I do prefer the Vivelle patches as much as they SUCK coming off the skin. 

    @beachbunnyxo123 -- i had issues with lining when I was on clomid big time. They gave me estrace which helped and i did pomegranate juice and pineapple as well. I also did acupuncture on my back before my FET and my lining puffed up well. IDK. Have you done acupuncture?

    Thanks for all of your kind words @MamaK225 and @AlohaKumu. I am preparing for the worst which will at least prepare me for the negative beta tomorrow. And if by some miracle the hcg is hiding itself, then I will just be pleasantly surprised but I doubt it! 

    I know some women on here have done more than 1 FET. I've heard chances are greater on the second time? Any insight as I mentally prepare for round 2? Luckily we do have 5 tested embryos left. 2 that came back no results

  • @beachbunnyxo123 My baseline started pretty low like that last week. (I know it was under 3.) I used to have 8+ lining every time, but my RE told me that part of the past thickness we used to see could be due to the micropolyps--especially before the endometritis was diagnosed. I've been trying to do/use everything that's supposed to help--POM juice, baby aspirin, acupuncture, vitamin E, l-arginine... and my RE upped my dose of Estrace to 6mg/day. Even with all of that, I'm not entirely confident I'll get to 8 by transfer time. I know delays are the worst, but your RE might opt to give you a few more days and/or meds.

    @manders85-2 YES! My doctor told me that My chances with a PGS tested the first time  is 60-65% , with the second one your chances go up to 83% and by the 3rd time it’s in the 90s. 

    @beachbunnyxo123 Get all the home remedies for lining.. Pom juice, beets, raspberry leaf tea, do Acupuncture… Use a heating pad at night. If I think of anything else I’ll let you know shoot i’d even go as far as asking if you could do the estrace Vaginally for a bit i’ve Heard it works better than orally!! Grow lining GROW!! 

    @leilee101 GURRRRRLLL THANK YOU! FX for a good lining tomorrow! And no it’s not bad your popping an extra one they’d probably move you up to 3 a day anyway. Do whatever it takes! I know I would. Same thing I told beachbunny if your lining isn’t cooperating ask about doing it vaginally I’ve heard it works better that way.
