    @emmasemm Sorry you had to cancel IVF. I hope everything gets resolved soon!

  • @blackhottamales I’ll be taking estrace, baby aspirin,prebiotics and probiotics,  lovenox, vaginal probiotics, Benadryl, medrol, and PIO. Also GF and DF for the past 3 months. You wrote it correctly for 2dp6dt. Are you going to test or wait till beta?

  • @blackhottamales I found out yesterday that I'm not going on the trip! Another coworker will be so I don't have to worry about when AF arrives and hoping timing works out.

    I can't wait to get started even though a BFP next week would be nice too. I will keep dreaming until then.

  • I am prepping for a big trip at work next week ladies, so I apologize I have been disconnected, and will be for a few days. Not much happening on this end. 
    @emmasemm I'm sorry you had to cancel your cycle. :( 
    @inthewoods23 great news about your trip getting canceled (or someone else taking it!) Here's to hoping for a BFP next week though, right? Fingers crossed for you
    @blackhottamales ahh, so excited for you. The tww is hard hard hard though, so be extra kind to yourself. 
    @lulu1180 ; One of the things I use to help headaches is I buy tiger balm and put it on the muscles around my head. When headaches last foreeeever I  find my head and neck muscles bunch up. Maybe that will help. 

    I need to be more exacting on tracking, not just kinda winging it. My cycles used to be clockwork regular, now they are all over it would be important to nail down that information. I am still getting up a few times a night though - that can impact my temps?  I need to read taking charge of your fertility again. Maybe I'll read it on the plane. 







  • @whatsbumpinpumpkin Could you take your temp in the very early morning? I would take mine at 3:45a knowing I probably would not have to get up before then to pee. Just a thought! 


    Question ladies...
    I had my CD13 scan and have 2 follicles measuring at 16.6 and 14.6 and my RE is having me wait until Sat. to trigger with IUI on Monday. My follicles have always been mature at CD13, so I was wondering if this is normal?

  • @crookshanks10 ugh, I *so* prize the nights I get to sleep through. That is a good idea though, so if I am another couple cycles out with nothing... 
    I'll save that for desperate times / desperate measures, and keep trying to get a normal temp. Maybe the keeping me up at night will end and I'll get to sleep through the night again someday soon and it won't be an issue. FX.

  • @chichiphin MH had 0% morphology on his first SA, with diet change and some other medication he stopped having to take as many allergy meds (Zyrtec and Benadryl) and his morphology increased to 2%.  I don't know if YH has allergies, but it's a thought.  I didn't know those could affect morphology until i was reading through our IVF binder. 
    chichiphin
  • @chichiphin What does 2% morphology mean? 2% of his sperm are normal?

  • @blackhottamales on how interesting. MH doesn't currently take any meds. He took a lot of ambien when he was deployed, and has taken several supplements for weightlifting over the years. I'm forcing him to write all of that down for our first appointment to ensure that stuff couldn't affect it. 
    @nomangos23 yes, only 2% are normally shaped. The OB mentioned it was mostly head defects and that those can impact penetration to the egg, but I don't have the report in hand yet. Fortunately the clinic that did the SA is where we got our RE appt, so they can help us really interpret the issues.

  • Thank you to everyone for the kind and welcoming comments as well as the advice! I very much appreciate it and your support means so much, which I suspect you already knew :)

    @chichiphin hey girl! I recognize your SN from a couple months back. Sorry to hear about the SA results but like you said, the continuity of care should be a great thing moving forward with the RE. 

    @blackhottamales Thanks for sharing, I didn’t know that about meds either!

  • @chichiphin Interesting... keep us updated. I'd love to hear what supplements you all have your partners on to promote healthy sperm. The only thing my DH takes is a daily multivitamin... And it's chewy lol

  • @chichiphin Better. MRI results came back normal so I've got a follow up appointment with my RE in two weeks to discuss everything we've had done so far... It will be nice to have a touch base and get some clear move forward direction.

  • Oh @nomangos23 I am so happy the MRI came back clear - but I can also see where that’d leave you back to having more questions than answers. We can count down to RE appts together - a diff kind of TWW this month

  • @blackhottamales Congrats on being PUPO!  I hope your TWW goes by quickly and easily

    @nitnat007 That's great that your first night of shots went well!

    @chichiphin I think your RE will probably be able to answer your questions better than your OB could.  That is so great you were able to get into the one you wanted so quickly.  I've learned that most of IF is waiting and sometimes that can really suck!

    Congrats on PUPO @blackhottamales, our SeptER buddy! Do you plan to test at home prior to beta? Everything is crossed that your embie is snuggling in there nicely. I hope to see a unicorn in here soon with your name on it <3

    @nitnat007 Wahoo on getting your shot on! Gl on Monday friend <3 P.S. My googly pineapples are in TX right now  :#

    Afm, I'm just hanging out waiting for AF to come. Moody af as per usual. It was nice that my coordinator called AF an asshole along with me. FET meds were delivered the other day. IM shots of Delestrogen will happen and then switch to Progesterone in sesame oil plus suppositories once lining is good to go. Before, the thought of IM shots caused a lot of anxiety, but now my brain is saying bring it the F on! A long email went out to my RE about the things that upset me after ER. Basically he was told what is OK to say to me and what isn't, drew some firm boundaries, etc. He was totally receptive to it, apologized with sad faces, and told me he would do his best to watch what he says from now on. He said that they really do love us and want only the best outcome. 

    This process has really made me grow up more than I ever thought possible. Last week, it got me thinking about how my coordinator and Doctor probably needed to hear from us that they are doing a good job and that they are appreciated. Yea, it's their job and we are paying them, but like they put up with so much to try and get things right for their patients. I sent them emails thanking them. It felt really good when they told me that it's a pleasure taking care of someone so kind and appreciative. That wasn't expected especially since hormones can really get me out of my element. Gonna send them some presents for Christmas. We found this really cute plush ute with tubes and ovaries to send that would be really funny, eta but I might just send a strong stiff bottle of something with a nice card. 
    People think we become mothers when we give birth but the truth is we become mothers the moment we start calling our babies to us in our thoughts, dreams and prayers. Some paths are short and some are so long that you can easily forget where you were headed.

    How I feel all of the time.

  • @suzycupcake that is a really nice thought and gesture! Doctors can make easy scape goats for when it's not going right, so I think that means a lot to them.
