However, he took a panoramic xray of my mouth and we looked at the cavity and its position in relation to the root. It looks like it is just a small cavity and he said there is almost no possible way for it to grow so much in the next year that it would reach the root where it would cause problems. His opinion is worst case scenario there's an infection that can be treated with antibiotics while I'm pregnant, there is almost 0% chance of needing surgery in the next 12 months. He gave us the go-ahead to do the IVF cycle, I passed the information on to IP's and the RE, and we are a go for this cycle! I start estradiol valerate and dexamethasone and antibiotics tomorrow... and the real fun begins! (Haha)


Great news! Bring on the fun!

I will be healing for the next four weeks with the support of hormones and then bringing my period on. So next ovulation, we hope to be ready to inseminate with our KDs! For now, I'm laying on the bed with the pup and watching stupid movies and trying to be a good patient (which is very hard for me).

 

Krista


I'm so happy the surgery went well love.gif

 

 

Afm: KD is heading over in the next hour or so for insem #1! Yay! If my temp doesn't go up tomorrow we'll likely insem tomorrow afternoon too. I love insem day lol

Krista~ yeah for a great surgery! I hope that you are able to rest and relax as you recoup. Hugs...joy.gif.

post #223 of 277

Insem #1 done. It went fairly well I think. I had to do it myself again and unfortunately KD didn't get here until close to 8 so DD was melting down and it made it a bit stressful. Oh well, I did the best I could at the moment.

post #224 of 277

Carmen: I don't know about stronger, I think insane nut.gif may be closer to the right term, I am going insane not testing! YAY for insems! Good luck with your insems tomorrow!!

 

MrsPP: Refresh my memory did you do an ICI or an IUI? I have heard that sperm can be nourished and last a couple of extra days once they are in the cervix, also I had a slow rise this month so maybe you did O when you thought and FF just needs to catch up. It initially had me Oing the day after I actually felt O and then after a couple of days of high BBT it changed O day to the right one. I know it is easier said than done, but relax everything is going to work out great thumb.gif And no I did not test today greensad.gif

 

KS: YAY for the green light!

 

Krista: Be a good patient and recover quickly so you can get that sticky BFP!

 

AFM: Well I am at 12DPO, and in a few hours I will be 13DPO uhoh3.gif I got a little discouraged this morning because I had a temp drop, I def know that it way too late in the game for an implantation dip, especially because it appears that I had one on 8DPO. Now I am super nervous that even with 6 eggs it just didn't work. I have started to accept defeat, but DP is still hanging in there, we are still however planning for next month's cycle and we have a pretty good game plan, we just need to meet with the RE again and get on some different meds. I am really hoping that with the travel (I am currently visiting my mom in Atlanta, so it was a cross-country flight) & my lack of sleep (I was deeply disturbed by the execution of a seemingly innocent man here in GA yesterday so I tossed & turned all night) and I had to get up at 6:30am (3:30PST) to do Wedding stuff with mom today that is why I had the dip, but only time will tell. I will check in and let you all know how temping went. We have decided that we are waiting until either AF shows up or Monday to test (Sorry to keep you all in suspense). I am going bonkers, but I am happy to know we will have our answer soon!

post #225 of 277

Ok sooo a real high temp rise for DP this morning.

So we got a +opk Monday, her temp dropped tuesday morning and we insemed (she always gets a dip before O)  and She usually Os that night. So wednesday DP1 temp rise of .4 (we did one more insem just to cover bases) then Thursday DP2 temp drop off .4 then today DP3 a temp rise of over 1 degree..

Could it be this fallback rise? When I looked it up it seems to be exactly that so I hope so. Does anyone know how long the sperm lives inside you when you do fresh shipped sperm? We do that.

 Mrs PP. Lets cross our fingers!!!!

post #226 of 277

Brite: Still crossing my fingers for you :)

 

handerson: I'm not sure how long fresh shipped lasts but fingers crossed for you too!

 

 

Afm: Hoping to fit in another insem early this afternoon if KD can make it! My temp did a slight dip this morning so I'm guessing I'll O today. I feel like we have had good timing this cycle. It would be great to have to cancel my first appointment with an RE on Oct. 5 ;)

post #227 of 277

Carmen: Thank you so much! Fingers crossed for your excellent timing for insem #2!

 

AFM: Just popping in really quick to say that my temps did go back up this morning, I am really hoping that it was just the travel and the lack of sleep that caused the temp to dip so low. I am going to try and attach the charts (1 with the temp from travel/sleep issues & 1 with that temp discarded). Which chart should I go with?

 

Thanks to everyone! BABYDUST to all that need it!

post #228 of 277

Hello Ladies! Just dropping in to say hello and ask for some opinions. So what do you guys think about no symptoms at all? I am 8 dpo which is 6-7 days before AF. "Normally" at this time I am feeling a lil crampy and my breast are ALWAYS sore! So far nothing! The only thing out of my norm is I am extremely thirsty. I have been drinking about 96 oz of water for the last 4 days. So anyone plz feel free to tell me your thoughts.

 

post #229 of 277

Brite: I wouldn't worry too much about one temperature. The overall pattern is what's important and unless it's a temp at the beginning or the end of the LP (first or last) then it doesn't really indicate anything inconclusively in my opinion. All that being said though, if it was me, I would keep the temp in my chart.
 

Amt: I think someone on here recently had tons of symptoms one cycle and wasn't pregnant and then nothing the next and that's the time she got pregnant...Graceie ,that's who it was! When are you testing?

 

Afm: Second insem tonight...it was quite late though, around 9pm so I'm thinking it was a bit of a waste. The amount wasn't great either - 2ml. I just googled what the average amount of semen is and it is 2-5ml. I'm wondering if the others on here are using a different measurement when they said they had 10 units for one sample? Or maybe they have a super hero...which would definitely be awesome ;) I guess I'll move to the 2ww now, please.
 

 

post #230 of 277

Carmen- Thanks for the info! I hope that is me as well! I have gotten sick of seeing the BFN so last month I didn't test at all so when AF showed her ugly unwanted face I didn't feel as sad as I normally do. I guess if AF(due Sept. 29th) doesn't show by Oct 6th I will test cuz that will put me at about a week "late". I hope your TWW flys by and you get your BFP!

post #231 of 277

Gelly- Please me us to the TWW

 

We are 4DPO and just just hoping for the best..

 

My DP was kind of depressed last night. Shes just thinking negative this time. She says its not gonna happen, all these straight people get pregnant not wanting too but we watn it bad so its not gona happen. She says she doesnt think her body was made to have kids.. BUT she wants one. Im like chill woman lol it takes time. We have to be strong and patient. We had great timing and we have a good chance. Sometime it takes 1 time sometimes 6 or more. Shes really healthy and doesnt have any pcos and her LP is 12-13 days so its good. She just wants a baby so bad that she hates the HPT saying negative. Well everyone does. I told her we gotta stay strong and not give up. I told her if it doesnt happen this time we can look into IUI at the doctors office. I think her insurance may pay for it. We have to look into it. Oh and she says the feeling of sperm in her is weird and gross and she doesnt like it... She was just having one of those sad nights. Not sure why cuz she hasnt. We have been positive about this all saying we know it will happen when its meant to be and so on.. IDK I just wanted to share my night with you girls...

 

Baby dust for us all

post #232 of 277

I think I am out ladies, I am 14DPO and my temp took a major swan dive this morning. It is still above the coverline, but I am sure that AF is on the way. I am really sad about AF, but I am more sad for DP & the disappointment she will feel. I have felt broken since DD's death so disappointment is not new to me, but DP wants us to be pregnant so bad and I feel like my body is failing us. Sorry to be a Debby Downer I am just feeling really defeated right now. I mean we had 5-6 fully mature eggs and not 1 fertilized?!?!

 

I will be back for personals when I am feeling better....

post #233 of 277

So its 5DPO and her temp went down some. I think this temping is driving me nuts this time lol... BUT do you think it could be since she sleeps with the fan right at her body all night? Like when we take her temp in the morning its like i said right there pretty much in her face..??? I did notice that her cervix is still high and she told me her BB were a lit sore.. lol. I think we want this so much any sign we are like maybe this is it lol. but im sure we are all kinda like that.

 

Oh and DP is better. Not depressed like the night before. She wants this but is not getting her hopes to high cuz she was crushed when it didnt happen last time. But I reassure her it will happen it jst takes time, plus we still dont know about this month. We had real good timing so?? We shall see.

post #234 of 277

Hi Everyone!  I've got a sperm tank in my living room!  

 

I introduced myself a couple of months ago, then promptly vanished.  I have a 7 month old daughter that my wife delivered, and we are now ready to start working on #2.  It will be my turn this time.  I really struggled for a couple of months wondering if if the time was right.  I spent three months tracking cycles, but there was always the voice in the back of my mind that said we were crazy for considering another baby.  Honestly, that voice is still there, but I am not sure if it will ever go away, so we are going to go for it.   As for specifics, we are using frozen sperm from a WTBKD. We are using the same donor that we used for #1.  Each cycle, we do two IUI's and an ICI at home. This cycle, we are actually just doing to ICI's at home.   I should ovulate in the next 48 hours!  Anyone else have similar timing at the moment?  I would love to have a cycle buddy.

 

Fertile thoughts for everyone

Fertile thoughts for everyone 


Welcome back! Good luck this cycle! I'm 2 DPO so a bit ahead of you but I'm happy to swap 'symptoms' with you winky.gif

 

 

Afm: I had a very emotional morning with several moments of "oh my gosh, I don't think I want another baby." Just feeling sad today and DP and I have been arguing lots lately so I'm also a downer! I'm 2DPO, my temp is way up so I think I had a good O and good timing. Started natural prog. cream this morning as well. Oh, and eating pineapple of course. Yum. We're off to see Pearl Jam tonight...our 2nd date in 21 months if you can believe it!

 

post #236 of 277

So after I wrote DP did say when I took her temp yesterday morning that she was cold so made me feel better lol. Today is DPO6 and her temp is 97.18.. We take her temp at 4am so we are not in the "whats normal" temps...

I did have a question tho.

Before she ovulated her temps are usually around 97.03.. Well then day before she Od it went to 96.86 then it rose after she Od back to 97.03 then had a dip but then like i was saying she has the fan in her face so that might not even had been a dip so ?? Any ways then it rose to 97.16 then yesterday we took her temp a little later after i was freaking out and it was around 97.16 again and today its 97.18....

MY question is I read that it should rise .2 degrees and up and she does rise like that.. She went from normal 97.03 to 97.18 as a rise... Is this ok?? so she rises 1.5 more after she Os. Is it maybe different because we temp at 4am? Should I be worried lol... Anyones temp not go up so high either?

Carmen- I hope things get better for you 2...Hope you had fun at pearl jam!

post #238 of 277
handerson--Do you use fertility friend? If so, I would like to take a look at your chart!

Vienna--I have a tank in my living room as well! smile.gif I am waiting for a positive OPK (should happen for me tomorrow) and then I will insem the following day. We won't be exact but we will pretty close!

Carmen--I hope that Pearl Jam was fun! Are you feeling better today?

SwtRainbow--What is going on with you? Still low temps or have they risen back up??

Screwed up my temp this morning...I really, really hate it when I do that so close to when I should O. Ah well...better than doing it ON O day. Hope all is going well for everyone else! I am just waiting to insem and for my first appointment with a fertility specialist on the the 5th. La da da...
post #239 of 277

Good morning, friends!

 

Rainbow - hug2.gifhow are you feeling today? Any other temp news? I'm hoping it was just a fluke. And to answer your question - we did ICI at 13.5 and 33 hours after + opk. FF DID finally catch up and put crosshairs exactly where I hoped they would! Thinking of you. xoxo

 

Carmen - Sorry to hear you've been feeling sad! I hope the concert was just what you needed to lift your spirits! 

 

Vienna - Hello and welcome back! Good luck!!!

 

Handerson - Fingers crossed!

 

Lisedea - Glad to see you back...AND with a sperm tank in your house! YAY! I really hope this is your month.

 

AFM - like I mentioned above FF did put up crosshairs exactly where I was hoping. I've been having all kinds of "symptoms" but I think a lot of them could have been in my head. On Saturday (5dpo) I was nauseous on and off throughout the day and had some weird crampy/twingy/pully feelings in my lower abdomen on the right side. It was actually kind of sharp. No spotting or anything but I have been having creamy cm...hmmm. I know it's still early and I should really be taking all of this with a grain of salt but I can't help but be a little hopeful. I have a bunch of cheapie internet tests and might use one on Thursday which will be 10dpo. We bought some FRER's this weekend too but I don't think I'll bust those out until Saturday. But we'll see if I can stick to that winky.gif

Back to the wait...whistling.gif

post #240 of 277

Good Morning Everyone well we are officially out. AF showed up this morning with a vengeance, I guess it is back to the drawing board for us. I am so disappointed and I have shed my tears, now we just have to figure out what's next. I want to quit so bad, but I know that if I quit I will never get pregnant. Thank you all for your kindness and words of encouragement during this 2ww it has made the pain of AF lessen and for that I am forever grateful!
