Tara I am so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine how much you are hurting right now.
post #122 of 205
Just wanted to share some good news - I ovulated! Entirely on my own! I got EWCM last night and today got a positive ovulation test. We're off the fertility meds and we've got things going for IVF. Wouldn't it be funny if we got pregnant on our own after all the fertility meds didn't work and right before we went for IVF?

That would be wonderful! Hoping you manage to catch that egg!

Well hello ladies!!

Hope everyone had a great long weekend.

Just popping in to say hi.

Af started this morning so my longish annovulatory cycle is finally over. My MRI was last Monday - apparantly I'm a smidge bit claustrophobic. I did not enjoy it at all. but should have results early this week, as I'll be harrassing my endo's office. Clearly we're out for injectibles for this June cycle - BUT I'd like to be all set up for July, for cripe's sake!! Anyway, how's everyone else doing?

Today is 7dp5dt (12 dpo) and still testing negative. Losing hope that IVF #2 worked. I'm having symptoms, but I don't know if I'm causing them myself, or they're from the meds, or they're actual symptoms (dizziness, lightheaded, slight nausea, hot flashes). I would think that a test would come up positive if I'm having symptoms, hence the loss of hope.

Thursday is beta day. Trying to stay busy until then.

Brandyshea - I hate that feeling of losing hope.

lesliesara - Hopefully this next cycle works for you. I move on to injectibles this next cycle and I'm dreading it.

Gemista and thtr4me Congratulations.

Firebugg - I'm glad you cycle is finally over. I hate the waiting to move on.

AFM - We finally got a c/o for our house. we should be moving in in a couple of weeks. Which will probably coincide with the start of my next cycle. I'm doing injectibles with iui this cycle. The needle thing is killing me, I went to my injectable class last night. I didn't even like holding the needle.

stretch358: Congrats on the offer. Are you just apprehensive about sticking yourself - or do you not like needles at all?

minkajane: Yay for the O'ing on your own.

tara:

MRI results are back and my pituitary is normal sized - which means the Endo is going to resubmit stuff to insurance so hopefully in a few weeks I'll have some GH. Can't wait to feel better, my RE thinks it will make a huge difference overall. But then I called the RE to let them know about what the endo's doing and that I'm on cd2 so that means probably a July cycle of injectibles (ordering them this week -and they should also be here in a few weeks) - and the lab is closed 7/1-7/10. Like seriously could we PLEASE throw a few more wrenches in the gears. PLEASE. Have an appt tomorrow w/ RE to talk about next steps and I promise to cry if I have to wait until August. I mean this whole process has taken 11 months, I know one more shouldn't be that big of a deal, but it is. I turn 33 this month and I know that's not old, but it's certainly not the schedule that I had for ttc when I got married @ 23. Seriously can't someone give a girl a freakin' break?

Brandy

Tiara what a run around. How can the lab close for that long? Is there another one you can go to?

Stretch we finally got an offer on our house too. We have to be out by June 22, so its going to be a busy few weeks. Good luck with those needles. So far I've only had a trigger shot and dh has done it every time. The prospect of learning to inject myself if this cycle doesn't work is a bit scary.

Laura how is the 2WW going?

AFM: I'm cd9 and triggered tonight for Friday morning IUI. I've been having short cycles lately. Even if they haven't been successful, at least they are moving along. I'm hoping that since so much focus will be on moving, that the 2WW won't be as torturous as usual. Maybe I should pack all the internet cheapie pg tests to save myself from testing mania! Good news though, my left ovary has decided to join the party. I haven't ovulated on that side for months. There is one on the right but it was smaller I think.

fierrbugg - For me the waiting and the setbacks are the worst part. I hope you can get a July cycle in. I hope you feel better soon. And I do not like needles at all. I used to be ok with them untill I was giving blood and they hit a nerve the pain was so intense I passed out (the only time in my life I have passed out). Since then I have been a needle phobe.

lesliesara - Congrats on the offer. Good luck on the IUI tomorrow.


AFM - Ours was not an offer it was a certificate of occupancy, we bought the house a month ago, but have not been able to stay there because the town would not give us the c/o because of a bunch of stupid little things. We finally got all that cleared up we just need to get the floors done then we can finally move in.

I O'ed yesterday (we are on a nat cycle this month) I had the biggest temp jump I have had in a very long time. I'm hoping this means it was an awesome egg, and I hope to catch it and avoid the injectables next month.

Well, the beta today was negative. I had a feeling. You can take me off of the list for this thread. This was our last chance. No more treatments for us. We can't afford it.
post #133 of 205
So so sorry it was negative

I can see how that might make one apprehensive about needles. I'm fine w/ needles as long as I don't have to watch myself getting stuck, so we'll see how that goes over. My youngest sister has a needle-phobia. To get over it, she decided to get acupuncture - not sure it's helped, but she does like her acupuncturist alot. Congrats on O'ing.

Brandy: Well that just sucks.

afm: Talked to RE Thursday. It was such a non-appointment he didn't even charge me a co-pay (although I'm sure insurance will send me a bill later). The lab is closed 7/1-7/10 but my RE is only going to be on vaca for 3 days during that time and says if all else fails, he can do the IUI himself. Basically we're waiting on the GH - and the GH company called me yesterday to let me know about their plan for fighting w/ insurance - they hope to have an answer in about 2 weeks and depending on the answer we may have to go through appeals. The rep said they'd let me know about copays and such. I hope that copays aren't that much - the injections run about $250 a day - and even on the high end, idk if I can afford $20 co-pays every day for meds for the rest of my life. At the same time I'm really looking forward to experiencing the good effects of having the GH in my system - like you know more energy and maybe losing some weight. You see more energy to work out longer, building muscle mass and maybe losing weight like normal people would be a huge deal. My RE thinks it's going to be night and day, my Endo cautions that nothing may happen at all. I'm hoping for the former. Anyway, I have to get the moola together to order injectibles in the next week or so - so that everything's ready whenever the GH gets here. We're getting closer and closer, so why am I so impatient and bummed out? Guess I'm just a weirdo.

Grapesbunch, EastBay, thtr4me, Jamie - Congrats to all of you ladies!! It is so good to see some BFP's b/c that helps to keep my hopes up when I can see that it is working for someone!!!! Praying for you all!!!

PoetGirl - so good to see you!!! When are you due? Your little ticker at the bottom of your post says you are at 40wks i think. Fill me in on how you are doing??? You are always so sweet to remember me!!!! Take care & i hope you are well!!

fierrbugg - good to hear your MRI is normal!! Now we will keep our fingers crossed for you next step!!

minkajane - what.... $5000 and you can do 2 IVFs with that?? I think i may need to come to your clinic if that is how much you have to pay. Ours are so much more expensive here. I don't get that... where are you??? I think for just one our of pocket here it is over 9 thousand dollars!!! Yikes!!!!

brandyshea - so sorry to hear your IVF didn't work this time!!!! Thinking of you!!!!!

Jamie - how did your beta numbers come back? Fingers crossed for you!!!





AFM: Well, I just got done reading over all of the month of May post trying to get caught up on everyone!! I have been out of the loop, but am going to try and keep up here this month since we are starting up again. I figure a weekend wrap-up might the best place for me to start again!!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

Name: Blueyezz4
Age: 33
TTC #: 1 (but really would be # 3 since we lost our twin boys #1 & 2 at 22.5 wks)
CD: 3
DPO (if applicable): not yet
Testing: probably not... tired of seeing negative tests
Trying Since: July of 2006 (too long)
Plan for this Cycle: IUI w/ injectables/trigger shot
Link to Chart (if applicable):

Thoughts: Since our loss on June 20th of last year we have done 2 IUI w/ injectables that haven't worked. Took a month off and just happened to find out that my thyroid was off so I started on meds and after 2 months it is back in order and we are back at it again. I think we will do one more IUI injectable round then it is on to IVF. My husband is saying we need to go to Israel b/c it is so much cheaper to do an IVF over there. LOL - i hope he is kidding, but it is temping especially since we have a friend that lives there. Hopefully we won't have to cross that bridge at all!! Had my baseline U/S just yesterday and they said i had 8 follies on the one side (doesn't that seem like a lot for CD2???? They also said I had some kind of follie that was blood filled and the tech said sometimes you see those in people that have endometriosis which i have never been told that i have so i'm a little confused. Anyone know anything about this??? Started injections tonight and go back for next U/S blood work on Wed morning. I really need something positive to happen in my life b/c this is going to be a really hard month since Father's Day will be the one year anniversary of when we lost our twin boys.

blueyezz I really hope this is it for you. I can't imagine how hard it must have been for you to have lost your boys. What drugs are you using this month?

Leslie - Thanks for your kind words! Yes, It was a nightmare, but I just have to try and believe (even though it is hard and easier said then done) that there is a reason for everything! I'm on Follistim 150 IU then Ovidrel. We will see.

I'm a veteran, so I'll be using a military doc who works with the local reproductive clinic. So I won't have to pay the doctor's fees and a lot of the meds are available from the base hospital too, so they're free. Also most of the monitoring, like the ultrasounds, can be done on base and will be free. I'm lucky that I have that available.
