Indigo: I'm so glad that your DP's visa was approved! Hooray!

Graceie: I'm sorry about your BFNs. It is still early. fingersx.gif

MrsPP: It's exciting that you might be getting closer! fingersx.gif

Thanks for the welcomes! Still just waiting waiting waiting...

So hey. Kaiser told us to wait 16 days to check. Bu I think DP might be on track to get AF earlier, I don't know since clomid sent her O time way late.

 

2ezforyou, can you put me under Waiting the 2 weeks section? This is so nerve-wracking!

Hi guys: Bad news. As I suspected, it's a blighted ovum. I should be 7w6d today and all they could find was a gestational sac. No egg yolk, no fetal pole and certainly no heartbeat. They want me to keep taking prometrium suppositories "just in case" but as nice as the doctor was I looked at him like, "Are you for reals? Why drag this out?" I had to go get another blood HCG and have to go back for another one on Friday. And because I'm O- I had to top it all off with a RhoGam shot in my hip.

 

Not much else to say at this point. I know I need to just get through it but I'm so devastated to be back on the other side of the low statistic of only 15-20% chance of getting pregnant.

 

I guess the good news is that I feel like I'm about to miscarry so hopefully it will happen pretty quickly and I won't have to take any drugs or do a D&C. That is my prayer.

I am so sorry Krista:(.Thinking of you.

Hello to all of the newbies! It is so wonderful to see so many new people!

I will post more personals tomorrow since I am taking the day off...I got all four wisdom teeth pulled yesterday so am feeling nauseated and bit f***ed up. smile.gif I definitely miss you all!

Krista--I am so very sorry about your news.  I'm sending you and your dp lots of love and hugs.hug.gif I'm hoping things happen quickly so that your body and spirit can recover from the loss.

Qmama and Maybeababy - I think I have you both all moved and in the correct place.

 

Indigo - Congrats again today on DP's results. It's a good week in your house! Great news all around. thumb.gif

 

Library - LOVE the shirt! I could not imagine. I hope someone knocked that person back into reality. It would make for a great tee. In fact, I'll make it for you and send once we're up and running. It can be my "congrats" baby gift to you. When you wear it, you can think of all the morons out there.

 

Oh Krista - hug2.gif My heart goes out to you. I am so sorry.

 

Graceie - 9dpo is way too early. You still have almost another full week. Fingers crossed.

 

AFM - I think my body finally realized I've been sticking it with needles and drugs for the last 5 days. Whew! Headache and nausea city today! It hasn't been terrible, but annoying. I've felt really good thus far, and can still manage this, but it caught up. A good friend of mine said the same thing happened to her, and it's just a bit of a shock to the body. She said she felt fine the remaining days, so I am hoping that's the same for me. U/s and blood work tomorrow. I am an nervous and excited to see if anything is happening in there. whistling.gif

Krista- This is terrible news, I am sending you virtual support and large hugs. hug2.gif

Escher- So glad the u/s went well and everything is looking good. Sorry I was MIA, I just needed to take a little space.


MrsPP
- I read just a few pages of the book on amazon and it seemed really interesting. Are you TTC or your DP? My DP is not TTC but I think we will both enjoy reading it. We often talk about how I should include him in everything concerning dr appt, u/s, and decisions because he needs that extra connection.

2ez
- wave.gif I hope you have lots of threadkeeping luck! dust.gif

Gelly
- Good luck at the RE office!

cnmk- I don't think it matters if you have not had sperm before. It's more about your Ph balance. You can do reading about testing it and eating certain foods to help it stay balanced. The IUI helps get past some of that CM if the timing is off. If your timing is perfect the CM should be welcoming :smile

Gracie- hug.gif

DAWN- Congratulations to you and your DP! carrot.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gif

AFM- Had my dr appt today and scheduled the removal of the polyp for two weeks from now. I feel pretty good about that. I should be able to start my IVF cycle the following month. fingersx.gif
post #53 of 502
Ez wow. Four ! That's two over my maximum

Max good luck home the plop removal is smooth sailing
post #54 of 502

Krista~ I am so, so sorry for how this cycle went. Hugs...hug2.gif !

 

2EZ~ My Re talked about starting me on 75, but after looking at my ovaries (which she said"they are not active"). So she decided to start me on 150 units. I start on Friday of this week...CD3-CD9. I had blood work and u/s on CD28 of my last cycle and I will have  more blood work and a u/s on CD 9. I'm a bit nervous about the side effects...nausea and fatigue, but I am very excited to be getting started.

 

Max~ yeah for getting a day scheduled to get the polyp taken care of. You will be back ttc before you know it.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Krista. It's so hard to go through an u/s that doesn't turn out well. I've been in your shoes and I hope you are very kind to yourself for the next little while and take it easy.

 

And I hope you are able to miscarry naturally as well. Trust your body. hug2.gif

Question: how do I get a footer at the bottom like so many of you have? Where I can put info about myself and my partner and such?

Thank you.
post #58 of 502

hello gals!  this is my first time posting, so i wanted to introduce myself.  my dp and i are in a slightly unusual situation, as we're both ttc.  she's almost 41 and i'm 38, and we'd like to have more than one.  we're doing at home inseminations with fresh sperm.  she's french and i'm american, and we live in paris.  france allows domestic partnerships (not full marriage, though), and that has allowed me to get residence; however, it's illegal for lesbians to receive any kind of assisted reproduction, so finding our own donor and doing things at home is basically our only option.  we *could* go to spain or denmark to do iui or ivf, but the costs are very high, and on top of that we'd have to factor in last minute airfare, hotel rooms, etc.  so turkeybastering is it for the moment.

 

we tried the first insem. back in november using sperm from a friend who happened to be in paris at exactly the right time.  it resulted in a chemical pregnancy.  after that we couldn't find a serious donor and were feeling pretty hopeless.  luckily, we found a lovely guy back in january, and we both insem'd in feb.  i'm at 8dpo now and wifey is at 6dpo.  i don't think mine took.  the last time around, i had symptoms (very very sore, stinging boobs, acne, bloating....all extremely unusual for me) but so far this time, all i've had are some bad cramps two days ago.  i figure it was AF preparing to rear her unwanted head.  my dp, however, has had unbelievably sore boobs (i can't even touch them with out her screaming in pain) for days now. so hopefulllllly.....

 

glad to have found this place and looking forward to hearing about everyone's bébés journeys!

 

bisous,

em.
