August 2012 Infertility One Thread -- Bring on Those Late Summer BFPs! - Page 5

post #81 of 175

Cross posted from the IVF thread "Well, yesterday wasn't the best collection day for us.  We only had 3 motile, 2 "shaking" and 3 non-motile sperm for freezing.  The nurse at the clinic said to make a consultation appointment with the doctor to see if we need more collections or not.  I was crying because it just seems like we keep going back again and again to drop of collections but with no "goal" of how many sperm they want frozen.  Between that and the money issues where we keep waiting for a reimbursement that will pay for our IVF with ICSI, but no reimbursement being in the check every other week.  It is just sucking the energy from me not knowing when we will be able to move forward with IVF with ICSI.  I am glad DH has some sperm to use with our procedure, but not knowing what "quantity" is desired by the doctor makes it feel like one step forward, 2 steps back."

Quick note - SSB, I didn't have to have any anaesthetic when I had my biopsy.  I took a couple of nurofen before the appointment, but the doctor was two hours late, so it had well and truly worn off.

It was less than pleasant, but not excruciating.

They say people plan and God laughs... He must be rolling on the floor right now.

I'm freaking right out.  I haven't been taking any of my meds at all this cycle, because we weren't meant to be trying.  We didn't try, really.  I honestly thought I was in the safe zone.  

Frick.  What if this baby dies because I haven't taken any of the meds?  Goddamnit, I'm so stupid.

Jumping up and down for you Milk!  I hope all goes well.  Great way to start off my day.  Great way to end a birthday week isn't it!

Ohhh Milk, I'll be praying so hard this baby sticks. Can the doc get you in ASAP to make a plan to keep him/her put?

planegreen - I thought when you took BCP you automatically had a 28 day cycle? It least that's how I remember it, though it's been over 5 years since I took it. Doesn't AF just come as soon as you stop taking the pills?

 

shesaidboom - ugh to being caught off guard by babies! You have every right to complain about babies, you shouldn't feel bad about it.

 

lilac - That sperm collection process sounds so draining! You and your DH really are troopers for doing this over an over again. Hopefully you don't have to do this anymore.

 

milk - wow that is crazy that you got pregnant in the month you weren't even trying... is it too late to start your meds now? Maybe they will still help. I really hope this works out for you.

 

AFM - 2 doses of Femara down, 3 to go. I broke down crying yesterday because it's so incredibly hard to go through these medicated cycles and I don't know how I'm going to get through this one. Hopefully I feel better after acupuncture tonight.

MIlk - Hoping so hard that things work out this time. I had a feeling this would happen. goodvibes.gif Come on birthday baby!

Sourire hug2.gif I totally hear ya on the difficulty of going through this month after month and I'm only on my second month. You deserve this to be your month. Please, oh please let the acupuncture be the ticket!

Milk- I don';t know what meds you are on, but I know we didn't start my prednisone until around 5 1/2 weeks with me and my boys stayed put a good long time. Losing them was not related to my Hashimoto's as far as we can tell.

I'm sure you're at the doc right now getting on whatever meds they want. OK, right now, you're probably sleeping, but, well, you know what I mean.......

I'm praying real hard this is a sticky baby.

Milk!!!!!!!! X told me about your news. OMG! I'm so excited for you, and at the same time I can understand the fear you must be feeling. Hang in there. Get the medication, one thing at a time. I'm crossing my fingers for a healthy pregnancy and baby!

Congrats Milk! Praying for a sticky, sticky, sticky bean! 

post #95 of 175
Thank goodness for spies! Milk!!!!!!!!! What meds should you be taking? I will be hoping and hoping that this is your sticky baby. Sending so much love to your little one.

Sila, I'm so sorry about the crappy period. Miss you.

Thanks guys.  The freakout continues, nonetheless.

I should have been taking the prednisone, mainly and I am supposed to take it for the whole cycle because the doctor does suspect some deep down immune issue.  But, it was giving me night sweats and insomnia, so I thought I would skip it this month.  I have all the "once I'm pregnant" meds already, so I started them all last night, I'm just really worried about the damn prednisone.  

I'm off to have a beta in about half an hour.  

 

I'm really sorry if the whole "not trying but getting pregnant" thing upsets anyone, I really didn't mean it to.

Milk- i just had a weird feeling when you said you held off from DH after the pos OPK then had sex the next day... no sangria for you little lady!
post #98 of 175

MILK! WHAT! DKAFJ;DKJASDKEAKDAFKL!

 

WHAT!

 

I just!!!

 

Ok, everybody be cool. Milk, I am so so hopeful for you. Please stick, little Milkyraptorbaby.

Milk, so glad you've got those other meds. Do you start taking the steroids now? And after 5 losses you're due some bloody good luck and happiness.

Milk- Even though I mainly stalk over here I had to say Congrats!!!! I also have immune issues (natural killer cells/ thyroid issues) and even after getting a miracle like you just did the RE that specializes in immune and IF told me that i didnt need to prednisone w a natural preg. Not sure exactly what your immune issues are but hope that comforts you some. Good luck and stick little one stick!!

Back to stalking and silently cheering you all on!!!
