So, random question - has your husband ever had the dna fragmentation test?
Yeah, we knew it would hurt bad too....so much that we were afraid to even consider the possibility that it wouldn't work. sigh...How are you doing leading up to your IVF? There's a lot to think about, and I've been around ladies going through it, so ask away if you have questions. I have so much hope and excitement for you and your DH to try this!

Hubby and I had chromosome testing done...is that what you mean?

I look forward to your update reguardless of the outcome!
bfn. Ok, got it - even when my body is acting pg despite spotting - still nothing. I feel really hollow anymore. Going to go eat lots of chocolate if you'll excuse me. I don't know why I even bother anymore. This stuff sucks.

I used to think I had this TTC thing all figured out, like my body was a cut and dry science experiment. Now I just feel totally clueless and small, especially when stuff like this happens. I'm sorry ,hon.

Oh fierrbugg! I'm so sorry! I felt for sure it would be a bfp for you.
post #27 of 121

Trying for 4 years

Pregnant once 2 years ago, lost pregnancy. Trying Clomid for the first time now, due to not feeling sure about having medical help. Did have moderate endometriosis removed Febuary 2009. Overall a frustrating journey.

Fierrbugg - I'm so sorry.

AFM - 13DPO BFN I do not have much hope for my beta tomorrow, DH is still optimistic which is killing me at the moment.
post #29 of 121
Stretch - Crap!!!!! So sorry to hear you had a BFN HEP

simplymere- good luck with the clomid! Sure hope it is your answer and you don't have to move on to anything else.

fierrbugg- So sorry!!!! It seems like it has been a bad month of all of us with all of our BFN!!! Someone needs to get a positive here soon to lift all of our hopes!!! Take care of yourself!!

I'm so sorry guys!



Yeah, I've learned quite quickly that my body LIES and to not take anything seriously in the 2ww! I've gotten the flu once around 12dpo and let me tell you, that was just CRUEL! I of course thought the puking and everything was a pregnancy sign...nope! I was just sick

Hi, can I come join you?

I was feeling like this last cycle was the last one I could handle - it's been too hard on me emotionally, on my relationship - and I was ready to move to adoption. We've been trying for over a year with an early loss on our very first cycle. Well, this last cycle was a chemical, and I guess that was just enough hope for me to feel like I can go for another few cycles.

My partner and I are trying with a known donor who lives in Iceland, so that's making the logistics of everything difficult and expensive. We are looking into freezing his sperm but AFAIK we still can't ship it, so I'll go get it in Aug probably, and hopefully time for a fresh cycle while I'm there. We've done two cycles with him, one we flew there, the last cycle he flew here. About the same cost as a month with frozen donor sperm!

Name: Millie
Age: 34
TTC #: 1st take home baby
CD: 2
DPO (if applicable):
Testing:
Trying Since: April 2009
Plan for this Cycle: Sit it out
Link to Chart (if applicable): Mine is booooooring these days since my therm broke and the one I got to replace it sux so I'm not using it.
Thoughts: How do relationships ever survive the TTC process? I mean, I'm not really worried about mine, but it's definitely the hardest thing we've ever had to deal with together, and it makes me feel so fragile.

So, !

MFG, can you please add my blurb?

Milletpuff~34, TTC #1 since April '09 with two early losses. Me: no bad results in the first rounds of testing, hoping to get some testing for info on losses. DP: shooting blanks cos she's a female. Trying with known donor in Europe, next cycle in August

Thanks!!

Stretch: I'm so sorry, Hon.

milletpuff:

May I also get added? I thought I was part of the list @ one time - but probably got knocked off because I've been just lurking alot.

Tiara (33), DH (34) – TTC #1 since 2001, 3 mc’s. Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency (AGHD) which relates to other hormone/insulin/egg quality issues + some clotting properties. In limbo awaiting a miracle to get GH injections in conjunction with a future IUI.

to everyone. I hope July is a much better month for us.

I posted a thread about this which is still on the first page, a little lower down: it's called "sticky idea: what tests to ask your RE for." I hope it's helpful!

milletpuff, oh damn. I was following your post in the pregnancy board and was so sad to see your post here. I'm sorry about your chemical.

and to all our new friends. Let's all get out of here, ok?

afm, I finished my Clomid (100mg/day) on Wednesday, and I'm going in tomorrow morning to find out what's going on in there. I don't know how I'm going to face another TWW. oh boy....sigh.
post #37 of 121
Thanks everyone for letting me join! I will pray for everyone on here that this is our month!! I did an IUI in Feb and I am just now able to do it again due to cysts. I was unexplained but since starting all this I have been diagnosed with Endo and PCOS. FUN, HUH?? Anyways, I am doing femera and follistim 150mg with trigger and IUI. The femera is giving BAD headaches. Anyone else have this?? I go Monday for my US and BW. Hopefully, something is going on.....
