Aura - what is up with you?
AFM - well since everybody is lurking and reading... my latest story is this: when I was out of town last month, I got my gannirelix shipment in the mail. I had ordered it early, even though my cycle is not until Nov. because there have been shortages, and I was afraid of having to go through what Aura had to go through. So Dh was home to get it, and I told him to put it in my closet with my other meds. When I got home the first thing I did was go to look for it to make sure that the expiration date was not too soon. I couldn't find it. DH looked and looked and he could not find it, but he was certain he put it in the closet. So, after 4 hours of looking I asked the nurse to order me another order of it because we lost it. She called it in and an hour later he found it. It was under the bathroom sink.post #823 of 8798/22/12 at 11:08ampost #824 of 8798/22/12 at 4:48pm
I had a bit of weirdness today. I guess one of my high school student's mother's saw my husband and I coming out of the infertility clinic on Friday. This woman was talking to another lady who is friends with the vice principal at my school. The vice principal told me that I should be aware that the initial woman will probably tell others and I should be ready for some "rumors" to be floating around. Ugh, high school students don't need to be asking me questions about getting pregnant or why I was at the fertility clinic. The whole process makes me cry because it is taking so much longer than I had thought it would.post #825 of 8798/22/12 at 5:55pmpost #826 of 8798/23/12 at 2:57amQuote:
My sentiments exactly. . It is absolutely nobody's business, and certainly not something you want to discuss with your students. I'm sorry! I hope it all blows over.post #827 of 8798/23/12 at 5:00am
Shortly after my last post in the other thread all my positive symptoms stopped very abruptly. Nothing happened for about a day and then yesterday I had horrible cramps start and now I am spotting. Beta today but even if it is positive things aren't looking good. Regarding the continued stir I inadvertently started let me say once again I was obviously wrong and please allow me to add that I am very sorry. I certainly didn't mean to imply that the whole of the IVF section was lacking or anything like that. I am used to threads coming and going without membership suffering and three months is a huge run for a thread on most boards. I didn't realize that the August thread was for things other than IVF, again my mistake. I am sorry about that. I guess I am just used to patterns of activity that are different. I think I am going to go into lurking mode myself for a while now. Best of luck to you all.post #828 of 8798/23/12 at 7:34am
Keli - I am so sorry for your loss. I hope that the outcome you are expecting turns the other way and you are surprised, but if it doesn't, we're here for you. I've had losses and I know several other women here have as well. It's so very hard, even early losses. We're here to talk if you need us.post #829 of 8798/23/12 at 7:47amKeli- hoping that you will be surprised by your beta!!! I know my symptoms have come and gone at times. When will you hear from your RE with your results?? Did you take a hpt like you were going to the other day?? We are all here for you either way, so don't run away! We've all been there before!! Keep us posted! /post #830 of 8798/23/12 at 9:35ampost #831 of 8798/23/12 at 11:24ampost #832 of 8798/23/12 at 1:00pm
Lilac, I am so sorry for that gossip stirring things up. People can be so insensitive sometimes.
Thanks every one for the good sticky vibes. My test came back a very, very low positive. Only at a 6. Cramps continue and still having light bleeding, but the bbs tenderness is returning slightly and feeling kinda queasy. Will be re-testing in a few days to see if the numbers go up or down. My IVF nurse is trying to be positive but doesn't honestly sound that hopeful. Will try to read along with the rest of you and will be sending good thoughts your way for continued success.post #833 of 8798/23/12 at 2:13pm
Thank you for the encouragement about the rumor mongering. So far no questions from students although I keep feeling like people are watching me more than anything.
Keli, I hope you will be okay with what ever happens. Loss is always hard.
Today I got great news for me and especially for my DH! The fertility clinic called today, the nurse had the doctor look over our chart, and the Dr said that DH doesn't have to freeze any more sperm and that we can schedule our IVF at any time. Now just to wait for DH's educational reimbursement so we can get the IVF scheduled. I am excited and happy!post #834 of 8798/23/12 at 5:26pm
rcr, the gannerelix story cracked me up! this is totally something i would do. in fact, i was doing a project for work from home and saved it to my desktop so it would be easy to find... and then spent an hour trying to remember where i saved it to! i'm glad you have your meds nice and early. it was NOT fun trying to scrounge up the boxes i needed, although the kindness of others really came through when i needed it most. anyways, what have you been up to? has school started yet for you?
blue, how are you??? i just love seeing that little beating heart and timeline under your posts. i smile every time i pass it by. how are you feeling? how was your trip? i missed a lot while i was gone!
lilac, how infuriating that a) people would gossip about you seeking help with fertility, and b) your vice principal felt the need to tell you that people were going to be talking about it. it's your business and your business only. i mean, i could see a little gossip if you and dh were exiting a sex shop or something, but you were seeing a doctor! all those people can take their nosiness and shove it. keep your head up and remember that once you get your baby, no one will care how you got it. also, so glad to see that dh has produced enough sperm for you to continue! so exciting!!
keli, crossing my fingers that the little bean decides to stick. i'm sure you're going through a terrible rollercoaster of emotions right now, but it's not over until it's over!
afm, i spent a lovely weekend in the poconos for my bday with a group of friends. it was amazing. i kayaked, i swam, had a few drinks, ate my weight in cupcakes and bacon...it was a great birthday. my dh gave me a pair of uncut diamond earrings (i love raw and organic looking things), and my mom surprised me with an ipad. not bad at all! i was actually speechless when they gave me the ipad, i don't know if i've put it down in days.
tomorrow i have a noon appointment with dr t for an ovary check, blood work, and a fresh biopsy to make sure i'm still clear of infection. i am dreading the biopsy, as i believe it was the most painful thing i've done related to ivf so far, and i've gone through some pretty painful procedures. i am hoping to just go into it with a calm mind and hope for the best. i wish i had a painkiller! this begins the frozen embryo cycle, so if all checks out okay tomorrow, i start up on lupron. last time i was only on lupron for five days, stepping down from 10 to 5 halfway through. this time i'm on 10 units for at least three weeks. i'm a little nervous.
is it labor day yet??? i could use another day off!post #835 of 8798/24/12 at 9:22ampost #836 of 8798/24/12 at 9:51amLila- I hope that info goes no where. I think if it was me and someone brought it up I'd just respond " what I do in my personal time is my own business!" and then walk away like you really don't care. It is no one else's business and I can't believe that someone would stoop to that level, but unfortunately there are people that low. Fingers crossed it goes no where. Glad to hear you got good news about DHs swimmers!!
Aura - wow, your b-day trip sounds like a fun time and fun gifts!!! I'm excited about your next cycle!! Hope it goes smooth. So I take it you guys decided against going w the fresh round this time. Weren't you kinda on the fence?? What made your decision? I always thought FET's were pretty simple in comparason. Fingers crossed n praying this is it for you!!! Hope the next biopsy is easier than the last also. I'm doing pretty good. Might have gotten over a hump on tues w the nausea which is helpful but kind scares me at the same time. Taking one day at a time and know what will happen will happen ( good or bad)! You are sweet to ask!!
Keli- thinking of you!!! When do you have your next beta? Hoping for a miracle!!!post #837 of 8798/24/12 at 8:16pm
blue, the big debate before was whether or not to opt into the 2 cycle plan. It would mean i have two free frozen transfers, and then one more fresh cycle for a low price, instead of paying " a la carte". we did opt in, so i'm doing the first FET end of september!
kewpie, my last biopsy was to check endometrial function. sometimes the proteins in the lining of the uterus can be out of sync with where you are in your cycle, and if that happens, it could prevent implantation. the endometrial function test came back fine, but they did notice i had endometritis, which is infection or inflammation of the lining of the uterus. they told me it happens from time to time just because i've had so many procedures. it could have been from an iui, an ultrasound... who knows. anyways, they stick a pipette through the cervix, and then basically SCRAPE the wall of the uterus for a very long ten seconds. ouch! today's biopsy was less painful, but we were testing to see if the endometritis was gone. i don't want to do another cycle if it came back or is lingering.
anyways, biopsy is done! we should have results in two weeks i think. ovaries are cyst free, i ovulated, and blood levels look good, so i started my first shot of lupron tonight, and starting tomorrow i'll take it every morning for about three weeks or so. i'm not looking forward to it! i don't need any help being annoyed at my coworkers lately, this is certainly going to push me over the edge.
off topic, i got a bit freaked out this morning because i drove into the city and parked... and found out about a minute later about the shooting that was less than two blocks away from where i was standing. there were police helicopters, tons of news vans, police, and the streets were closed off. it breaks my heart that people have died and are in pain due to one man's crazy anger.post #838 of 8798/26/12 at 12:05am
Welcome back from your trip Aura! It sounds wonderful and I vote for pictures of the earrings! They sound stunning!
Lilac ~ So glad the kids aren't joining the gossip wagon! And so good to hear that there is good news for you and DH!
I know I am missing others but a little worn down tonight. Please forgive me, I am sending my best positive vibes your way...
afu~ Had a second Beta today and numbers dropped to near nothing. Cramping and all that continue, doctor's office says it is officially a miscarriage now. At least this early it isn't as bad physically as when it is later in the pregnancy. My others were many years ago and not with DH. He is feeling it deeply having never been here before. So I took him shopping for an enormous BBQ grill that I was going to save for his birthday, it made him feel better. And I got med rare t-bones with my wine... It's not much but it's something.post #839 of 8798/26/12 at 9:40am
