Songbird- How many follies were there?

Crystalmommy- Keep strong. Hang in there. How long is your LP usually?

Nummies- Keep us posted!

Gumby- sorry for your poor ovaries. Suckitude

kjbarr- YAMS? I had a co-worker who must have overheard me talking to a friend because she made a snide 'relax and it will happen' comment. I said really? Because DH can't ejaculate!!!! She has never said a word after that!

Crystal -mommy- I am 9dpo and feeling little cramps here and there. I told myself forget it, its nothing. I refuse to put my hopes up and later be flattened out when AF comes. After a while the 2ww is not fun anymore. I will be feeling more anxious once we do IUI or IVF.

Count: 136 million

Motility: 50% motile

Morphology (our issue): 1% normally shaped. ***Obviously not great, but exactly what we were expecting.

That's wonderful! My only advice is to be patient (hahahaha, I know) and give it at least 6 tries, maybe more since your counts are lower - I know they told me they like to see 5 million for IUI so it might take longer for you. I agree with your doctor that it CAN work, even if it doesn't happen right away. Good luck!!

For everyone who asked, my first beta was last Wednesday (16dpo) and my second beta was today (23dpo) so the numbers are right in line. They want to do an ultrasound next week Wednesday, and then I leave the RE's practice and switch to an OB. It's weird, I feel like an OB can't possibly understand how I feel about this. Is it wrong that I sort of want a medal for the suffering I've been through? In fact, I think we ALL deserve medals.

It's not weird at all. I want a medal too. Does this work?
Probably not. You need like a gold medal.

With DS, my RE didn't let go of me until 12 weeks and I still felt like that was too soon. I felt like the OB should have given me top priority for every appt. because it took so much more to get that far to begin with.

I started the BCP tonight, but I am scared to death to start the metformin, so I am going to wait until tomorrow night for that. The list of side effects and warnings are frightening!

Thankfully IVF has taught me ALLLLLL about patience!

I do feel like we deserve some sort of medal too.

I was really worried about side effects when I started Metformin, but I ended up not having many. I had some slight tummy issues, but taking the Met with food seemed to fix them.

I had to laugh at your post earlier. My DH was totally grossed-out when I showed him the u/s of my poly-cystic ovaries. They do look pretty freaky!

hopefully you will get a "medal" in the form of a healthy infant!! good luck!!


natrualmom my lp is usually 14 days.

AAM my back is starting to cramp like AF is on her way. I have had about 3 mini meltdowns this am already. My poor DH doesn't know what to say @ this point.


opinion I am debating whether I should take another round of Femara w/ no ultrasounds, only a progesterone level. I have been on femara for about 5 months and it pretty much does the same thing. OR if I want to do a round of Clomid and see what that does- will have the u/s and all that since I wasn't monitored the 2 times I have done clomid. what do you all think?
post #71 of 275
Femara worked better than Clomid for me, but everyone's different. I'd go with whichever you felt better on, if they both make you ovulate.
post #72 of 275
my main reason for wanting to give clomid another shot is b/c my progesterone was 119 the last month that I took it (they didn't follow any labs the first month) it made me feel like crap the whole time I was on it... but if it gives me the results I want- it will be well worth it!

Songbird congratulations!!! We are all pulling for you!

Follie study today. 3 11mm follies, blood in uterus.Estrodial level 70 something (immature) Super long AF since starting these drugs. Recheck of estrodial and ultrasound Sunday. Keeping in gonal-f until then. My 10 yo DS gave me the shot today. My friend usually does, but she was gone. He wanted to and did a good job. He says its good practice because he wants to go to medical school Anyone else with super long AF on meds?

Today is the end of my 2ww. Had my blood drawn at 6:30 this morning after a small breakdown in the lab's parking lot. Now it's just the waiting game.

Fingers crossed for you! I know this last day of waiting just sucks. Waiting for the results always seems to take forever. Let us know how today goes for you!

I did a few rounds of clomid with no monitoring and it just didn't work. When I did the clomid with u/s and all that, it worked. Whatever you feel more comfortable with... clomid did drive me a little nutty.
post #80 of 275
Clomid for me wasn't very good, my progesteron level came down b4 the 2ww, tamoxifen works better for me, but all this results are individual.

Maybe with your doctor you can find the best cocktail for your best results using the experiences b4 as a reference, anyway good luck from here
