TTGP Grad Announcements w/o 5/24

If you are a contributing member who has been active here for a full 3 months with a BFP this week, CONGRATULATIONS! Please share your success with us here. 

How do you know if you're a contributing member? 

1. Ask your heart if you have contributed positively here. 
2. Do these people know you? Will they be happy about your pregnancy? 
3. Have you offered support to others or have you just blasted your own info out there? 
4. We ask that you only post here if you have been participating meaningfully here for at least three months.Sometimes the silence is kindest. Those of us who lurk BMBs will see your intro and PM/comment/love tit. 
5. Again, take a moment and step away from your excitement and ask your heart if posting would be potentially hurtful. 
 ----------------------------------------------------------- 
 This thread has mild restrictions - thread is primarily BFP announcements but doesn't allow for direct questions or lengthy/personalized congrats in the comments. Use the "Love It" button or "congrats!", "H&H 9 months!", "I was hoping this was your month!" and other short & sweet notes. 

Regular board rules apply-- this is not the place to ask if you are pregnant based off your symptoms or for second opinions on your tests. We do invite you to contribute in the daily TWW and WTO threads and discussions. This community gives back tenfold what you put into it! When you see somebody who has possibly violated a guideline of this thread, please quote the section of these guidelines and include a callout to the poster, but keep snark to a minimum. If you have a post called out, please edit your offending post to add a note that you've been made aware of the rule and will keep it in mind in the future (if you are being asked to change wording due to unintentionally offensive phrasing, please remove that part of your post with a note of "EDIT: Removed offensive phrasing"). Remember: this thread is not a tribunal. Continued arguments and defenses about a post have no place here and are considered off-topic. If you would like to make an argument for or against a rule, please create or update a META thread to discuss. 

CD/DPO of first BFP? 

How many months/cycles had you been TTC? 

How long have you been an active participant on the TTGP board? (minimum: 3 full months)

What did your chart look like? 

What were you doing TGKU? 

How was your timing? What symptoms did you have, if any? (CS & CD breakdowns welcome)

How are you going to/did you tell your partner? 

Anything else to add?

  • OMG!!!!! I might cry!
    I am doing this alone. Left ovary and fallopian tube removed due to cyst/necrosis just after birth. Right ovary and fallopian tube still purport to function.
    Began TTC in Aug '18 @ age 36
    5 or 6 (or 7?!) cycles using frozen donor sperm, ICI. All BFN
    Mar-Jun '19 IUIs, all BFN
    Began process of referral for RE in spring of '19, blood tests confirm low AMH (.54) but all else is good.
    May '19 HSG shows open tube, but ultrasound suggests fibroids
    MRI in June '19 confirms two large fibroids, one growing through wall of uterus
    In June '19 I move from California to Oregon, disrupting my insurance, referrals, etc. 5 months spent piecing it all back together.
    Nov. '19 attempted myomectomy (vaginal approach) failed. 2nd surgery using laparoscopic method in Jan '20 is successful.
    April '20 --> June '20, natural IUIs, all BFN.
    July? saline ultrasound and bubble test demonstrate open tube
    July '20 clomid cycle cancelled for thin lining
    Aug-Oct, 3 femara cycles, all BFN
    RE referral. While waiting to set up an appointment Nov-Jan, I continue with natural cycles and ICI, using a known donor, BFN...
    Jan '21 more bloodwork, AMH is worse (.36) but other numbers are fine-ish. hysteroscopy all good. "looks cozy!" says the RE.
    Feb '21, injectables (menopur, novarel), iui, BFN (doc said the frozen donor sperm sample had the "best numbers she'd ever seen!")
    Mar '21, injectables, iui cancelled due to lack of follicles, converted to at home-insem. BFN
    May '21, first IVF round cancelled due to cyst.
    July '21 IVF: 8 eggs retrieved, 7 mature, 5 fertilize, 4 made it to blast (1 was a slow-growing day 6 blast). 3 are 4AB, 1 is 4BB. PGT-A results all abnormal.

  • (Just wanted to get that out of the way before I compose myself.) 

    I was thinking about you this morning @BusinessWife, and lo-and-behold, got the best news when I logged in here. Can't say much more than H&H 9 months. I hope everything goes well, and don't forget to keep lurking here. Your advice and opinions (unpopular and otherwise) are always welcome.

  • Thank you @keikilove ((((((huge hugs)))))) I couldn't agree more; you are absolutely right about that.  We have been lucky and blessed beyond measure.  I say that all the time, I really don't know how we got so lucky... I like to think that we do appreciate it more when the victory is hard-fought.  I will be hoping and praying that your next miracle may be right around the corner as well. ❤️❤️❤️

    @meggyme Thank you so much!

    @photographerwife I know!!!  How wild is that!???? 😆 I was so happy to see you there, and starting to feel a little more hopeful, it was all I could do not to let the cat out of the bag! Lol. I'm so happy we get to share a BMB do-over. ((((hugs))))

  • @babyodo  Thank you!  Rooting for you as you continue to grow your family, too!  And thanks to you (and YH) for your service, love.  Hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

    @daisy0322  Awww, thanks lady! <3 You are too sweet.  You're going to make me cry here, too! hahah
    <div class="Spoiler">I thought I would share this lovely prayer with you.
    <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.padrepio.org/pray/efficacious-novena/" title="Link: https://www.padrepio.org/pray/efficacious-novena/">https://www.padrepio.org/pray/efficacious-novena/</a>
    Padre Pio was a very powerful saint of our times.  I had a friend from Church not too long ago ask if any of us had any special intentions she could bring with her to pray for us when she visited the Padre Pio Center in Barto, PA.  I said I did have a special private intention (that Padre Pio would know what it was!), and she said she would be happy to bring it!  Then I found this little novena, which is really a daily devotion.  I thought it was a good one.  Perhaps it may be good for you, too. <3  I am so very hopeful for you!</div>
    @dobiemom11  Thank you so much!  Hope you and your sweet boy are doing well, mama!  ;) 

    @lilywonderland  Thanks!  We haven't discussed it yet, but most likely, yes.
