Fried that's great! Wishing you luck with the fertilization and transfer
Queer Conceptions November - Page 4
Pretty - I'm dying to hear if you heard a heartbeat this morning! I see that a lot of people are lingering online this morning, I think we are all hoping to hear your good news!
Fried - Yay for 3 eggs!
Fille - I'm so sorry your HSG was so uncomfortable. When we worked with an RE before they were strongly encouraging one and I was really anxious about it. I've definitely heard that it increases your chances of conception for a few months though. Let's hope it does the trick!
Fmoriss - Happy Anniversary!
AFM - It's CD18 for me. I'm still anticipating O on CD20 but I could get a pos OPK as early as today. Either way, by Friday I'll be in the TWW. I was able to get in two insems already on Mon/Tues and KD is open to continuing daily as long as we need to, which I'm super grateful for. In our previous tries we haven't been able to get a try in on O day, just multiple days leading up to it.
I know that we want every cycle to be the one, but it would be really nice if it happened now and I didn't need to put grad school off a year. We have decided that we'll keep trying though. A second child is really important to us and everything is still in such limbo surrounding out foster son that we're reaching the point where his bio-dad will have the chance to sink or swim. His bio-mom went MIA few weeks back out of nowhere when I thought she was doing really well. Gah! Fostering is such a roller coaster of emotions.

Mrs - thanks for all that information. It is incredibly helpful because I didn't realize how much monitoring is needed with injectables. I am on CD20 so I will most likely start progesterone tonight to see if that gives me half a chance on the timing for next cycle. I remember you posting about the extremely high sperm counts so since then I always pick the highest count I can get my hands on. That's so cool you got to see the ruptured follies. My RE doesn't do US after insems but at another clinic I had it done and it was really satisfying knowing that ovulation did occur. My RE will not do two insems so I am contemplating an at home ICI in addition to the IUI with RE. Thanks again for everything!!
Fried - yay for 3!!! Fx!!
Pookafaye - that is so great you are getting so many insems in!! Fx!!
Congrats Isa! How are you and DP feeling about twins?!
Fried! Great you have all 3, I'll be thinking about you tomorrow!
I have a question... I talked to my REs office today about starting monitoring for my January cycle and they recommended a also do a trigger shot. Previous I only did OPKs and got my BFP so I'm not sure if the trigger shot is something I should do? What are your thoughts, I believe many of you have done that with other medications but has anyone ever triggered with no other medications?
just a REALLY quick one - Fried, I just wanted you to know I'm thinking of you and I hope that it's successful. Everything is crossed so I'm not typing very well xxxx
Isa - WOW!!! that's fantastic, I guess you're going to want to be greedy & go for two BFP's huh!?!?!?
will do more personals later. A friend gave birthday yesterday at 28 weeks. Baby 2 pounds 1 but healthy which is a relief. Imagine missing the whole last trimester!
Love and baby dust to all xxx
Jam--I don't think the Saras check in here much these days, but one of them did monitoring and a trigger, and got pregnant with her sweet little boy that way. They said it was a lot cheaper than buying extra vials of sperm.
First, Isa- Congratulations!!!! Twins! So exciting.
Second, I suppose I should (re)introduce myself. I haven't been on here for about a year and a half or so and in that time a lot has changed. My exwife and I tried for about a year to get pregnant without success and about a year and a half ago we split up, hence my absence. At the time the divorce was something I never saw coming and totally shook me up but since then I have learned so much and have met an amazing person that far exceeded my previous expectations. My DP is trans (FTM) and we have been together for just over a year. DP has always wanted children and has expereince with TTC with his ex. The longing for a baby has been with me and DP for a few years now, and so we decided to start trying together!
We are currently in our second try. We are using fresh sperm from a known donor and I am currently 8 DPO. I tested this morning, even though I know it is way too early. I am really hoping to get a BFP tomorrow since it is my DP's 40th birthday. Wouldn't that just be an amazing present?!?! I know it will still be early but I have a really good feeling about this month. I have been using guided imagery and just keep seeing myself giving him a postive pregnancy test all wrapped up tomorrow.
I have done a little looking around and am so happy to see so many graduates! I will do some more reading and catch up on all of your stories. For now I will be sending you all postive vibes where ever you may be.
mama I was bored on my day off yesterday, so I finally made the Pumpkin Brownies. I had to substitute some ingredients so they weren't as soft as I expected but tasty. I'll continue tweaking it. Did you get rid of the peecanister yet? Your latest blog had me lol!
liz sorry to hear that little one came into the world so early. I hope he is a little fighter and makes it out of the Nicu with no problems. By the way, I had a phantastic interview the the documentary folks yesterday. She was awesome.
hopeful welcome back. I hope he gets his birthday present and you too! Good luck
afm they moved in!
