::Pookietooth Congratulaitons:: I am so happy for you, you give me so much hope!!!


AFM--thanks everyone for your well wishes. I really appreciate, even snow-pea came here to wish me the best. It maked me feel really good to know that others are caring about me. Thanks everyone again. I am little sore today. Yesterday I was in alot of pain. I wrote on a new thread about what happened so many can see it. Its called one step foward, two step backwards. You can read it there. The jist of the story is they fixed my cervix and found BOTH tubes blocked. I was told my only option now is IVF.
post #105 of 197
wtg4miracle, sorry to hear about the blocked tubes, but glad they could fix your cervix. I had a dream about you but I don't remember what happened. At least now you don't have to try to do ZIFT or GIFT. to you. Do you have endo?
post #106 of 197
pookie-there was no signs of endo, no history of PID, never had STDs, very rare yeast infections, no signs at all that I would have tubes blocked. This is so shocking and out of the blue. The doc said to my dh that my ovaries, uterus and now my cervix are perfect but the tubes are blocked. How can this happen when ovaries and uterus are perfectly clear. This got my mind swinging. Its like a horishima(sp?) bomb went off. Its so weird to know that my tubes suck.

I get my second beta results in around 2-3 hours. On pins and needles here!
post #109 of 197
So, I got my news -- BFP! Beta was 598, which they say is good. Now I wait for the 6 week u/s next week. Boy, thought the 2ww was tough, but it was nothing compared with this!

Oh Pookie::::::

Wgt- How is your day going?

AFM-U/S and estrodial this morning. 2-3 dominate follies (but too little yet), tons of little guys Oh well, estrodial on the 70's, will stim at 37.5 today through Wed, U/S and estrodial Thursday. He did give me Hcg for a mirodose just in case, but so far I'm not suppose to use it. Lining goos for CD8 Hoping my ovaries don't go crazy this cycle!!
post #111 of 197
We got another negative today. So another IVF cycle with no live baby. The only people I know or ages with as much debt as we now have are grads from places like Stanford. Next person who says that "[we] can just try again next month" I am going to make give us the $17,000 if they think it's so frakking easy and cheap!
post #112 of 197
Aria Austin--so sorry about the negative. How many IVF cycles have you done? This must be really tough for you since all the time, money and aggravation spent on IVF. My only option is IVF and now I have to forfeit in buying a new house and some other things that needed to take care of. We are budgeting so we are saving every penny we have.

AFM: I am still numb about all of this. I am still sore at the incision site. Of course the clinic is closed today but I did manage to talk to a nurse from the hospital. She told me to keep the incision areas dry. I told her that I bleed time to time but not to much (sorry tmi) I think I am taking a longer time healing cause they cut me where I had the incision from my lap for gall bladder 5 yrs ago. They cut right into the scar tissue from before. I will tell the docs tomorrow that its still bleeding. Poor dh wants to faint. He feels so bad that I went through the surgery to only feel physically and mentally worse.
post #113 of 197
Pookie- YAY!! congrats! Those sound like great numbers!

wtg-

Aria- So sorry about the BFN.

by-the-lake- Sounds like things are going well! I do have a question. Why are you on injectibles? Do they not want to try a natural cycle with donor sperm or do you have a hard time Oing by yourself. I can't remember.
post #114 of 197
Aria- Sorry for the bfn

Great question nummies. I started out on injectibles because of DH's issues. My doc said way back then, he would not use injectibles for donor sperm. Well, I think he forgot, and I'm not saying a word. I O natrually very well on CD19 every cycle. But, I'm willing to go with this for now. I think it could work

Pookie thanks for the link. I might start doing acupuncture. The clinic I go to has a wellness program where they have AP on site. Now I can go in and tell the girl what exactly my problem is. DH is always looking at the positive side of all of this. He said at least we know the tubes are blocked and thats why we are not conceiving and we have to do IVF. He said we pinpointed it. He said he is relieved to know that IUIs will be a waste and that the surgeon just saved us at least 4-5 months of more heartache. I agree with dh but its the harsh way to find out. It feels like I was handed the death sentence.

Wtng, I am so sorry. You seem to have been made to think you have every problem at some time or another in this process. The IVF diag. IS hard to digest. It just is. On the one hand, you're glad it exists. If I were in this situation 20 yrs ago, I would have reached the end of the road. Remember though that for a while doctors were telling you that ivf wasn't even possible. And while it's no picnic, it is a viable option now and your cervix is strong enough to withstand a pregnancy. Take the time you need to grieve it all. It will get better. I was freaking out about ivf a few wks back and then I was freaking out about the fact that I was freaking out about it, if that makes any sense. Acup., guided meditation (anji online, Rod Stryker, Andrew Weil all excellent), reconnecting with nature (thank you weather for allowing this) and trying to get my mind to be absorbed with other things even if it's a stupid tv show all helped. It's important psychologically not to hate/resent the process however you can.

I've been away so I'm way behind even in my lurking. I'll catch up
Currently doing Lupron shots.
all.

Just to update over here as well as on the IUI thread, DH and I did one IUI this morning and will do a second tomorrow. His numbers were really good - 148mil and 70% motility - so I'm hoping that we have a really good chance this month. When I went for my u/s yesterday I had one big follicle (23mm) so hopefully that will be enough!

wtg4, I know I've said this before, but really think about giving acupuncture a try. It has been such a help to me in dealing with all of this, not to mention how it has helped my cycle.
post #118 of 197
Thanks poet and daisy--I will be checking into the AP soon. Right now I am pursing all the guided imaginary and meditation cds now at amazon. Thanks poet for your suggestions. I am trying to figure out who are the best. I think I might order one from Deepak Chopra also. I know poet how you feel when IVF is thrown on our laps. It hits you hard. Wham! Its a shocker when you are told that. I know what you mean about getting upset because you are upset. I am trying to find peace in this cause I know if I go into IVF with a crappy attitude I wlll be doomed from the beginning. I have a few months before I start doing IVF. Its a total shocker when I never ever thought I would have tubal problems. I feel like I am in denial. I think I have to go through the grieving process first inorder for me to start IVF.

I've been away for awhile because life has been pretty depressing and I felt like I didn't have a real plan of action and the costs of moving forward with the doctor's prescribed plan was too much for us to deal with at the time. I have been diagnosed with PCOS and a couple of weeks ago I told the nurse that I would continue to take the metformin, folic acid and baby aspirin, but that we weren't going to do the femara, ultra sounds or the IUI because of cost. We were going to try on our own and see what happens. Well, I just took a pg test a couple of minutes ago and it was positive. I can't even begin to describe how scared to death I am. Anyway, I just thought I would let everyone know. DS was conceived with injectibles and an IUI and now with this one, I'm not really sure when I o'd. Life has a funny way of doing it's own thing. Best of luck to everyone else. Again, I was afraid to post because I almost feel like I am betraying everyone else who is still on this board. Take Care
post #120 of 197
Oh Gumby, congratulations!!! It is not a betrayal at all. I'm very glad for you and I think the success stories offer hope for those of us still stuck. :::
