post #101 of 275
Crystalmommy- What are your plans for this cycle? I know you have some ambivilance with IUI's at this point. Sorry for AF. I know, I am a labor and delivery nurse and it sometimes makes me wonder...why do I have all this trouble and not others with poor or unhealthy lifestyles? Then I think, oh if they can get pregnant strung out on whatever, I have a fighting chance here!
Just some pretzel logic

Daisy mae- As much as a @#$% AF is, at least she is here and you can start over.

Is 10000 units of hcg high for a trigger shot?

Naturalmom I am a L/D nurse also!! I love my job- but when the crack head mom comes in w/ her 8th pregnancy -makes it s a little hard to comprehend !! good luck w/ your trigger shot. I think 10,000 units is a pretty normal dose.

AAM I think I am going to sit out for a month or two. I am not sure if I will regret it or not, but I have to do something different. I ahve until Tuesday to decide what I want to do this month. I am going to try really hard to lose about 15 lbs. @ least if I haven't gotten preg by Jan I will @ least look damn good!! lol

What does DH think about the break? I'm so sorry to hear about the BFN. I'm in a forced break mode this month and I don't DH has thought much about it.

Hi everyone. I had my first IUI on Friday. I was reading over your posts and it seems like I might be on a similar cycle as some of you. I really hate this 2WW so I am hoping to chat with some of you to pass the time.

Its like a slap in the face!! ugh! i am so disgusted w/ the whole process right now. IT SHOULD NOT BE THIS DAMN HARD!!!!:
It never fails. Once I get AF someone announces they are pregnant also. It darn sucks beans!! I have a girl at work who is 39, got pregnant with an oops and here I am trying faithfully ttc. I wonder sometimes what is the reasoning behind this. Is it bad karma?

Folie study was done, 2 large follies, 1 smaller one. trigger tonight. Waiting for estrodial results
Good luck!!!!!

Welcome!

Shesabuckeye- Good luck. Come over to our November IUI thread, I will get your info!!

Crystalmommy- Good luck in whatever you decide. All of this sucks.

Wgt4- I hate that! It makes all of this 10 times more difficult.

Gumby DH is all for the break. He isn't really all that keen on the whole infertility drama.


wtg4miracle The part that is hard to take is that last month this girl just couldn't even begin to think of TTC. They have too many bills, etc... she just wasn't ready. Well, in 3 weeks time she decides that they are ready and gets preg w/in 2 weeks?!?!? Dummy me! I thought maybe I should plan my family out a little bit better and I get punished for it?? I know I am not being "punished" but that is how it feels sometimes.

names? what are your names? you don't have to post if you don't want.. Just call me nosy! obviously my name is Crystal (not hard to guess!) Can't really talk to IRL friends right now.. so you guys are it for now!

It is NOT bad karma!!! It's not your fault at all. It's just luck of the draw. If we are strong women (which we are!) we'll learn lessons from it about patience and compassion, but that's not a reason, it's a side effect. Some of us are just unlucky when it comes to reproduction, and we should be careful not to blame ourselves. It's unfair and it sucks, but it's not our fault.

Hey everyone......after some long hard discussion, DH and I have decided to officially take a break. I am exhausted. We have been ttc for over three years, and it's starting to take it's toll. Even though we never did an IUI, it eems that something was always preventing it, so maybe it's a sign to stop for awhile?? I started OPK on CD 9 this month, got similar lines but def. not the same, and so waited and tested the next day, only to get just one line. Soo..... I called RE and they said, well I must've surged the day before and missed it.......we are 3 hours from the clinic, and so missed yet another opportunity to do IUI. This has happened to me three times. We are over it. I want to thank all of you for your kindness and support, and I hope it's ok for me to lurk around and keep in touch. Maybe we will be back in the saddle after the holidays.....it's just t oo much right now. Good luck to you all, and congrats to the graduates!!!

My 4 year old helped me with the Follistim pen, he loved it. I do all my sub-q shots myself, but he loves helping/watching. He also has front row for all my IM shots in "the bum" that my DH does. He also says he wants to be a doctor.

Updated to here

Big s to everyone who needs one. This thread has had a rough couple of days.

AFM, I think I'm 9dpo today. I've added B6 to try to lenghten my luteal phase, so I'm not sure when to start getting my hopes up. The past 2 cycles I've started spotting at 9dpo. : for no spotting today!
post #114 of 275
I am Carly.

I started my Lupron last week, took last BCP on Sunday. Looks like my schedule will be almost the exact same as the one where we got my twins and then lost them last year Was hoping that wouldn't happen, it is just going to make it so much worse.
My next appt is the 16th for now, will probably start stims then. Scheduled retrieval is day after Thanksgiving and Transfer is tentatively on my brithday in Dec. Although, we all know it could swing a few days sooner or later.
The pharmacy did send me the right meds this time, I even took them to my MD to make sure. Still pissed and when I had to call for my meds I got all anxious, sad, mad, and upset on the phone. It was rough.

Sorry for all the BFN's, it was not a good month for most, I am really sorry.

Lola: I understand the need for a break. Take it easy on yourself. If and when you decide to try again........is there a way you can drive to the place and stay the night somewhere and do two IUIs, in order to catch the sperm? Maybe do a mini-vacation in this town for a couple of days? In any case, take care and you are more than welcome to lurk as much as you want

Good luck in November everybody. CD1 today for me. Clomid will start on Wednesday and I have an u/s to check follies next Friday (11/21). Feels like a fresh start.

I hope that you have a nice relaxing break. When you return to the TTC game, you may want to think about a fertility monitor. Best $ I ever spent. It takes all the guessing out of it.

Good luck!! I know that it is rough. Hang in there. Treat yourself today.

DaisyMae sorry for AF- hope the Clomid does its job!!

Lola I hear ya!! We have been TTC for a little over 3.5 yrs- we have taken a few breaks in that time frame. But we have been doing the whole infertility thing for 8 months. I am going to take off @ least Nov, maybe Dec and start back in January. Also, I don't think I am going to tell anyone when we start back in Jan. My friends are really sweet and genuinely interested on how I am doing, but it gets exhausting. And the clearblue easy monitor is really a good investment! I really like not having to play "compare the two line that might or might not be exactly the same!". I found mine online @ amazon and I think it was $170 total (included monitor, strips, and next day shipping). much cheaper than if you buy it @ CVS or Riteaid.

Christophersmom Good luck!! I hope this is your cycle and you get your bfp- one that sticks this time!!

Libby hopefully the spotting will stay away- and you get a bfp!

My name is Bonnie.

Daisymae08--sorry about AF. Just think its a new month and you can start fresh. Good luck for rest of November.

Lola88--maybe taking a few months will help. Just relax and when you are ready you will feel better emotionally. Try not to think about ttc and enjoy your time with dh. Do things together and have fun. Reconnect with each other. Just tell yourself that you are giving "me time" for how long you want. Don't feel bad that you are taking a break. Then when you are ready to try again you will be at better state of mind.

Christophermom--I hope this cycle will be it for you. Sorry you had to make that phone call to make sure they have the right meds to give you.

LibbyLOu-- I also started to taken huge doses of vit b6. This month I bought GNC Vit b with c, mega doses. I think my LP is extending.

songbird45--thanks for letting me know that this is not our fault. I keep thinking what did I do wrong, what did i do to cause this.

crystal-mommy-how are you feeling, are you taking a break also

hi nummies and naturalmom
