Sila- Sadly, painful periods come with Endo. This just was the worst I've had. The OB is not concerned at the moment, but wants me to keep track of my symptoms. My friend who is a doula thinks it may just be because the loss is so recent that my periods have been so bad. The amount of pain meds i had to take for relief yesterday was ridiculous though. Rochelle- Welcome. I'm sorry you have to join us, but these are some of the most supportive people you will ever "meet". Also, I put your blurb up.

I hope you're starting to feel better Deborah. I had a pretty bad AF this time too. The AF immediately after my lap wasn't bad at all, not a single cramp, but this time, I cramped badly for a day before I started and then the next day, was in so much pain that I spent most of my morning throwing up before resorting to some pain pills left over from my lap. It was awful. Onto another round of Clomid 150mg but really, I'm just starting to really feeling like another pregnancy just isn't in the cards for us. We are attending a foster/adopt meeting on June 21st and that may help us make our decision on whether to keep on going or not.post #23 of 2926/3/12 at 6:06pmpost #24 of 2926/3/12 at 6:50pmpost #25 of 2926/3/12 at 7:38pmpost #26 of 2926/4/12 at 6:10ampost #27 of 2926/4/12 at 7:10ampost #28 of 2926/4/12 at 11:48am
Hi! I'm new here (to this thread, not Mothering). My husband and I have our first visit to the infertility clinic scheduled for June 14th, and I'm terribly excited and mildly freaked out. I'm 41, with 2 children from a previous marriage, but we haven't been able to conceive a baby together. Reading everyone's posts has made me realize that I'm about to learn a new language.post #29 of 2926/4/12 at 12:23pmThread Starterpost #30 of 2926/4/12 at 12:34pm
deborah - Lola definitely needs a class like the recall one you're joining. She has terrible recalls even though we continue to work on them. She'll do great without distractions, and will only do them with distractions when we're at the dog park or in the backyard.
Thank you for the reassurance. You're right that it only takes one good egg. I have to keep reminding myself of that.
I'm sorry you're in so much pain. I hope this is very short lived.
Sourire - isn't it crazy how they raised the price so much? The only reason we're able to juggle all these costs is because we had nearly $100,000 in the bank saved up for a down payment on a house (houses in and around Toronto are crazy expensive, so we need at least that much for a down payment). We dipped into that money for everything and are just going to wait a while longer to buy a house since we'll need to replenish it quite a bit. We did most of the wedding stuff ourselves so we cut costs by a lot, but there's not really much way to cut those infertility costs.
I can't wait to follow your cycle. I hope it is a very successful one!
zen - It definitely is a hard financial load, I feel you there. Thank you for the good thoughts. I'm sorry your cycle didn't work out. I really wish it had.
SilaMarila - I'm actually not sure why IVF went up. It isn't covered by our insurance or provincial healthcare (government). Monitoring for all other procedures is covered so I'm really not sure why they don't cover it for IVF.
Only 5 more days until the wedding!
I'm glad you got your website up. I think you will make a wonderful doula! I will pm you for the link if you don't mind sharing.
Thank you! They said that we'd have to do IVF asap, so they may let me try before I finish with the weight loss. I hope so anyway because it is a very slow process.
I'm sorry about the play date. It can be so hard to be around that kind of talk when you're going through what we are. It does feel very isolating, which is why I'm so glad for this place.
I'm thinking of you and am anxiously watching and waiting.
deportivo - I'm so sorry for everything you have had to deal with. How frustrating! I cannot stand when people say thinks like "you can just adopt". Like it's as easy as tying your shoe. People who haven't been where we are really do not understand, not that it's an excuse to behave that way. Gentle hugs to you.
Cait - That's what we were thinking too about the wedding and IF, so we're just going to leave it until we get back from our trip.
Thank you so much for sharing your journey, I learn something every time you post.
Thanks great news about DH being home this week!
Congrats on being an auntie again! I hope the rest of your 2ww goes by quickly!
Gemmine - thank you!
Smiles - thank you, I hope so too!
Good luck with the HSG. I've actually heard of many women getting their BFP after their HSG, so you never know. Like Sila said, it can be good to clean out those cobwebs!
lilac - that's great that there were at least some sperm in there! Hopefully the supplements will work. Having hope is definitely a positive thing.
Unfortunately the meds really do cost a lot. For mine all the meds for IVF are about $4500-$5500 per cycle, which is a bit lower than what is estimated on that site.
SimplyRochelle - I can relate to that feeling. It can be so hard to connect and feel left behind when you're still struggling for #1 and your friends are onto #3. I hope that we are able to offer you support and what you need here. This is a great group of ladies!
monkey - that's exactly why my RE is running it again. She said my results don't make sense when compared with my other test results, so it's possible it's a lab error. My original PCOS diagnosis was made due to the amount of cysts on my ovaries and the symptoms I was experiencing. However, my RE also mentioned that in my last cycle my follicles were borderline PCOS/not (there needs to be a certain number for a PCOS diagnosis), so she thought maybe a wrong diagnosis may have been made. Thanks for the good thoughts for the wedding! The website is capesandcrowe.blogspot.com. I haven't updated much yet, but will be posting pictures and things once it's over.
Happy anniversary! It sounds like you had a very nice, quiet day together. I can't believe your babe is 29 weeks already!
rcr - wishing you good thoughts on your IVF journey.
knockedupbuttercup - welcome to the thread. I hope we're able to support your through your journey.
AFM - nothing new going on here. Just waiting for those test results to see if my numbers were lab error or true. The wedding is in 5 days (I cannot believe it!) and I am so excited, but nervous about it. I am also disappointed because for so long dp and I were sure that we would be pregnant by the wedding so we unintentially set this deadline for ourselves, and well, we're not pregnant of course so that hurts a lot. I had to go to the hospital today to attach my holter monitor (a test my cardiologist is running just because I haven't had one in years) and when I came out there were all three couples taking phone pictures of their brand new babies in their carseats for the first time. It hurt so much. I'm trying to not focus on that part and just enjoy the wedding anyway. When we get back from our trip (we're leaving on the 16th), we'll have a fresh start with our treatments.post #31 of 2926/4/12 at 4:17pmThread Starterpost #32 of 2926/4/12 at 4:17pmThread Starterpost #33 of 2926/4/12 at 5:15pm
I have been wanting to post for a long time now but I keep thinking that it would be silly as I am surely about to get pregnant. And yet here I am...I have been TTC #2 for 1 1/2 years. All tests (HSG, day 3, day 21, ultrasound) have come back normal, I ovulate every month and have regular cycles. Sperm analysis has been fine too although I don't know the numbers.
I met with a RE who diagnosed unexplained infertility and has suggested I go the clomid, 50 mg, iui route. I am supposed to start clomid tonight and although I have been wanting something that would help I am now starting to freak out :( I am debating if we should just keep trying, or if there is anything else that I should/could try. Plus the side effects have me nervous. Ugh
I am really worried that if this doesn't work that we may be out of options. This is the backup plan and now that we are actually using it I am starting to feel less hopeful that this is ever going to happen.
Sorry, I just needed to vent to people who get it, my husband tries but its just not the same and none of my girlfriends have been in this boat so they can't really help either.post #34 of 2926/4/12 at 6:49pmWelcome bucketofrain- i hope we can help guide you through this journey. Many of us have been on clomid. I'd try a cycle and if you aren't happy with the side effects ask for femara/letrazole. Hopefully one month is all you need!
Welcome knockedup- good luck with your first appt! Make a list of questions and besure to advocate for yourself.
Shesaidboom- thanks, you make me blush. Can't wait for your wedding! It is going to be amazing, just look at the positive things, champagne toast, mixed drinks on the honeymoon. Of course we'd all give that up in an instant but I know there are lots of wonderful things happening in 5 more days. A lifetime with your wonderful husband to be!
I know there were a few requests for the sleep stuff and i cant remember who asked & who I answered so I'll just post here. It isn't much anyway.
Sleep scedule- go to sleep at te same time every night, more than 30 minute fluctuation messes with your hypothalmus.
Socks- wear them to bed, you'll sleep more fitfully
Dark room- Not sure why this matters but he said its important!
I think that was it happy sleeping!
Sila- thanks for the calorie advice, those things I learned years ago and have forgotten. Really I don't come close to that many calories & with my new meds I have no appetite. Only a few more days of your 2ww. Thinking BFP thoughts for you. Are you leaning one way or the other yet?
AFM- i'm exhausted from all last weeks events. Hubby is gone for 2 weeks, I fly to MD Friday for a wedding. Just a lot going on. I think I'm going on an all pizza diet because I'm only up a pound or two, it is exhausting. My nephew is adorably sweet, i'll give him an extra snuggle for our hopes and dreams.post #35 of 2926/4/12 at 7:19pmpost #36 of 2926/4/12 at 7:20pmThread Starterpost #37 of 2926/5/12 at 1:58am
toothfairy2be - thanks for the reminder about sleep
Can Do - Sleep scedule- go to sleep at te same time every night, more than 30 minute fluctuation messes with your hypothalmus.
Will do, although I don't like it much - Socks- wear them to bed, you'll sleep more fitfully
Done - DH complains he can't see a thing and will hurt himself in the dark if he needs the bathroom but dark it will be! - Dark room- Not sure why this matters but he said its important!
I am waiting and wondering what tomorrow's temp will be. Hoping that one of my DH's swimmers met the egg this month. Next Tuesday is our meeting with the RE if I am not pregnant.post #38 of 2926/5/12 at 2:59ampost #39 of 2926/5/12 at 5:12am
