Weekend Wrap-Up

Name: Kristen
Age: 37
TTC #: 2
Trying Since: 2004
CD: 9
DPO (if applicable): N/A
Plan for this Cycle: 7.5mg Femara, scan on Monday to check follicles. Hopefully this will lead to an IUI later next week.
Thoughts: I don't think I'm in the right place emotionally. Not feeling hopeful, just panicky and overwhelmed at the thought of another failed cycle. And if I let myself think about it working, then all I can think about is another m/c. I need an attitude adjustment, STAT!

Plan for this Cycle: Same old, same old. We're waiting for DH's final post-varicocele repair SA in April, and we will most likely go to IUI with Clomid/Femara from there. I'm anxious already.

Weekend Wrap-Up

Name: Laura
Age: 25
TTC #: 1
Trying Since: May 2007
CD: 8
DPO (if applicable): N/A
Plan for this Cycle: Taking Clomid days 5-9, acupuncture weekly, as well on the day of the IUI, and going in on day 12 to for u/s and b/w. For my first Clomid cycle, we had to do the IUI on day 17, so I'm kind of hoping we'll see something sooner than that this time. Also, we used my natural surge last time and I'd rather use a trigger this time, if we catch the follicle at the right time. I suspect we did the IUI a little bit on the late side and I'd like to avoid that! I'm also taking Royal Jelly daily and trying to keep my feet warm.

Laura~ G/L on this cycle!! I really hope it's the one!!! I hope you have some follies ready by the time you have your b/w and u/s too...it would be a lot better if you could trigger...and make sure you catch it in time!!!


AFM~ I am soooooo tired of feeling like things just aren't working for me. The past almost 3 years have been really hard to deal with and I am doing my best to be pos about all of this! I am feeling like this isn't going to be our cycle...even though I didn't take the Plan B pill to keep me from getting pregnant. Maybe i'm just not meant to have another child. Maybe i'm just supposed to be a singlton parent for the rest of my life. I know i'm only 10 days from my 26th birthday...but my mom was 26 when she had to have a hystorectomy. I'm so scared that what happened to her will end up happening to me and that's just something I can't deal with right now. I'm not ready to give up...but i'm just having a really hard time today dealing with everything. I didn't realize that TTC #2 would be this hard, take this long, and be this stressful. I try not to stress out and I tell myself "If not this cycle, we'll still be able to try for the next cycle" but it's still hard. I know you ladies understand what i'm going through. I've been in and out of the other TTC boards under just TTC and it frustrates me that there have been like almost 20 women get pregnant since i've joined MDC Forums in November. A lot of the other women have only been trying for like maybe 7 cycles give or take and it's crazy that some of us have been trying for so much longer than that. I know there are other women out there who have been trying longer than I have...and I really feel for those women because I'm about to go freaking mad!!! I'm sorry if i'm on my soap box today but this coming weekend is my birthday party (my birthday is next thursday) and I will be going out with several of mine and my husband's friends who have had babies or are currently pregnant. I just get tired of everyone else getting the good news and me not. I know i'm not the only person out there who feels this way. Anyways, I will be testing this wed and if it's not pos by then I guess I'll wait to see if AF shows up sometime this weekend. I think that she should be here at least by sunday because that would be cycle day 46 and that's the longest my cycles have been being lately. Thank you ladies for listen to me complain today. It's great to be able to come vent here because most people in my life (IRL) don't get what I'm going through and don't understand me. No one else in my family has EVER had problems TTC. I hope everyone has a great week. I look forward to seeing more updates!!!


Also if there's anyone interested in taking this thread over for march (it's slowly approaching ladies) let me know. I don't mind doing it two months in a row but I was going to give someone else a chance. Maybe the thread keepers luck will help someone else since i don't think it's really helped me this cycle!!!

Brandy- I hope this is your cycle. It's hard to keep having hope, though, when you've been at it so long. I had my follie scan this morning and the nurse made a comment about how exciting it must be to be doing my first ART cycle with this clinic. I hated to burst her bubble, but after 5.5yrs of ttc#2, it's hard to get excited about anything anymore. for all of us.

s thank you for the encouraging words...it really does help. And yes, it really is heard to keep hope after everything keeps failing. I really hope that this ART cycle works for you this month! That would be wonderful. It's been a while since we've gotten a graduate from this forum....


I'm at work yet again (joy of my life) and i'm ready to be in bed with DH. He makes me feel so much better when I'm down and out! This cold weather isn't helping me either. It's so dark and grey outside all day long and it has been several days since i've seen the sun actually come out. I'm ready for spring.

At least your spring is right around the corner! Dh's family is in GA, and they are always bragging about what flowers are blooming while we still have lots of snow cover. It's a good thing I love winter, otherwise the thoughts of beautiful flowers and blossoming trees 2 months before we we'll see it could really get a girl down.

That's true...i could never live where it's cold...but my DH could. He has been beggin me to move to a colder state lol...i told him that we would talk about it once our kids get older and we retire but i really doubt it. Our families all live in alabama and I'm a home body!!!! It killed me a few months ago when my parents moved 35 minutes away from me lol...they use to live in my back yard!

I've decided I'm going to go ahead and test tomorrow i think. I don't know though. I'm tired of getting my hopes up for nothing. AF is due any day now...i think Saturday is my CD45 and that should be when I start...but I never know these days! I hate that my cycles are so screwed up!!! It's really driving me crazy. Plus with long cycles it cuts back my chances of getting pregnant. I looked at an ovulation calander for me and there are like 2 or 3 months this year alone i will completely miss out on if i don't get pregnant soon because of having 45 days cycles!! BLAH! Anyways, I really hope this cycle works out for you girl! You deserve it!

Sorry I've been MIA. I had a bought of tendonitis and I was trying not to type a lot to get over it. But now it's gone and I'm back .

I could do a late weekend wrap-up....but basically, I don't think I O'd this cycle. I'm on CD 42 (usually a 33 *at most* day long cycle). Took a HPT on Monday with TMU and it was BFN.

Our appointment with the urologist is on Tuesday. I'm getting more and more nervous about it........DH seems to be fine...he hasn't said anything. We're at the 6 month mark for when the PCP told us to make the appointment w/ the specialist . I'm to the point of tears when I think about the appointment and I'm not sure if that's AF hormones or what. If you pray, please pray for us this week!

ETA: Can you edit my bio so DH's age is 31?
post #55 of 92
Brandy- I understand how you feel. I'm starting to feel a little discouraged by the whole process. DF and I are both emotionally thin right now. Maybe we need to take sometime off for a month or two. Good Luck and I hope your birthday is special regardless.

Ladylaura- good luck with clomid! I hope you have great follicles

AFM: So Saturday I saw the RE for an ultrasound. They decided that I wasn't ovulating soon enough for them so I have "injectables" on Sunday night. I don't know if it was necessary, but I just went with it. I think we are starting to get a little weary with the process and therefore are just going with whatever they say. I had an IUI yesterday. Good news- DF sperm count went from 6 mil to 21 mil!

Anyone had "injectables"? I heard that if I tested early a positive result could be due to the meds. Does that mean I have to wait until 14dpo?

MrsD08~ Edit is done !!! I really am sorry that this cycle is just way screwed up!!! I hope that the appointment with the urologist goes well for you though!!! Maybe this one will be much better and be able to help your DH out!!!


pugmomma~ Thank you!! I really hope my birthday is special too. As long as my DH and a couple of my friends don't get the way they usually do when they drink i think it will be great lol.


AFM~ I'm sitting at CD42 and i'm 14DPO and got a BFN this morning. I was so heart broken and I'm afraid i'm out because there's a slight hint of pink when I wipe now so I'm sure AF will be showing her nasty little face by the next couple of days. I will be really shocked if she doesn't show up full force by Saturday!!! She always like to come around when I'm about to go out and have a good time with my friends!!!! It's so discouraging when I know that I ovulated and we had SEVERAL eggs that could have been fertilized this month and yet still NOTHING. The only other way I'm not out is if this is implantation spotting and I caught one of the later eggies that dropped. Which I guess I'll know that answer by saturday or sunday...but the wait is killing me! ANYWAYS, I hope you ladies have a great week and everyone try to stay warm. I know it's been really really cold here in alabama lately...and I'm use to being able to wear T-shirts and stuff during the week of my birthday...it's weird with it snowing here lately.

, brandy.

pugmomma- it looks like we're cycle buddies! we just did our iui this morning. here's hoping that we all have good news soon.

mrsd08- good luck with your urology appt. i hope you get a fabulous dr well versed in male IF.


afm: had our scan on Monday, had 3 potential follicles, with one being quite a bit larger than the other 2. I gave myself an ovidrel shot tuesday night, and we did the iui this morning. while dh's numbers/stats are still well below normal, we had 27.8mil for today's iui!!!! I just hope one of those swimmers finds one of the eggs and gets busy.

Kristen~ i hope that the IUI takes for you this month!


AFM: I'm out this cycle. I started full force this morning so today is CD1! I just called the nurse and I'm waiting on her to call me back! G/L to everyone else!
post #59 of 92
Kristen- yes we are cycle buddies this month! I also had 3 open follicles. I'm hoping for a positve test in 2 weeks for you.

Just heard back from the nurse. I go at 715 in the morning for u/s and b/w and they said if there are still some follies left over from last cycle I will have to take bc pills for 2 weeks to make those follies shrink and then I'll be able to start the next round of meds. I think if we don't get it this month we are going to take a month or so off so we can regroup ourselves and our funds. I am really pulling for some BFP's for march!!!! G/L ladies..


PS If i do actually get pregnant on my next cycle my due date would be the day after my 7 yo DD's birthday!
