toothfairy - what a beautiful sight! frame-worthy, i tell you smile.gif

sila - i agree that the lap and bc pills probably screwed with you. here's to a shorter follicular phase.

chourd - thanks for the healing energy! i'm so touched that you would take the time to do that. really. thank you.

afm - spotting today. praying i don't start AF til tuesday or else i will miss baseline window. it won't be the end of the world if i do, i will still get to do the iui but it would be nice to get it over with.

Indie no probs at all - that's why I did the course lol (for friends and family) and thanks for the appreciation, you make me blush Sheepish.gif

Ok I have to stop lurking all day and get a life - it won't help me test any sooner!

The lady that got me into the R healing, this is a testimonial on her website... this was from a few years ago... so I figured it couldn't hurt you ladies

"I have to thank Sally Ford and Reconnective Healing for changing my life. After just a few short minutes on the massage table during a demonstration of Reconnective Healing, I was healed of a chronic condition that had been with me for over 2 years. This condition had baffled Doctors, gynaecologists, acupuncturists, homeopaths and a number of other therapists. You see, at age 28 I was unable to conceive a child which for me was devastating. Since the healing my life has taken me an amazing journey and thanks to Sally I have been able to fully enjoy all life has to offer."  Paige - Paige has recently given birth to her first child.


me 39, DH 39, one no babies yet due to previous poor health. Trying to make up for it now (TTC since November 2012) At least one confirmed chem.Ivf #1 march 2014 - 6 day 6 blasts, two transferred bfn, 4 frosties in waiting. Ivf #2 may, cancelled, Ivf #3 July... BFP! 15dpo 336 hcg, 17dpo 681 hcg... Looking good so far

Wow. I'm woefully behind!

Indie - I'm hoping that the spotting stopped and that AF will hold off for a few days so you can have your baselines done. Did you decide to do the prometrium orally or vaginally? If orally, maybe try vaginally do hold off AF? Just an idea. I'm so freaking excited to meet you tomorrow!! OH, and I have a friend who is 38 with a very low AMH who got pg on her first round of clomid, so it definitely happens. Also, have you read that the lowest an AMH test will come back at is 0.16? Someone told me that. I'm with you on the wondering the benefits of IVF vs injectibles when dealing with a low AMH. Time to start googling...

Chuord - Very interesting stuff! I also thank you for sending healing energy my way. I know I can use it. MDC is an incredible place thanks to people like you. I hope that your next HPT ends up framed on your wall instead of in the trash smile.gif

Sila - I'm sorry AF is being such a b*tch! I hope this cycle is much faster and I do think that the BCPs could have had an impact for sure.

MsD - That response sounds great! When did you/do you trigger? Fingers majorly crossed for you!

TF - I"m still just so freaking over the moon excited and happy for you!

devilish - I think some congrats are in order....

AFM - First day back to work in two weeks. Ugh. My temps have been all over the place, which is bad news according to my acupuncturist. I had a long talk with DH about back up plans and he's very much against donor eggs or going out of town to a more reputable doctor for IVF. So, I'm feeling more pressure to have something work soon. I'm getting anxious about the test results from the specialist. I just want answers already.

http://www.ivf1.com/AMH-Ovarian-Reserve/

Learned a lot about AMH from this site & kind of explains why thelevels can change. Im in the 10th percentile for my age, awesome.

Sila- i watched Magic Mike, part of Step Up Revolution (it was aweful), and Hope Springs. Clearly my RedBox had a terrible selection at 9 pm Saturday night. The rest of the week I watched all 3 Batman movies & saw Lincoln in theatres. My test date is the 16th, they only make you wait 10 days with a 5 day transfer. I'm thinking about starting the 13th even though DH is against it! Ovulation better cooperate with you this month so you can get started!

Chourd- thank you so much, I'll take good vibes from wherever they may be! Ill check out the site later (too hard from work). When do you test again?

Skj- When do you expect to hear back from your tests? It is so hard feeling like theres some imaginary timeline greensad.gif

Indie- sending my best GO AWAY SPOTTING vibes across the country for you. Have fun tomorrow & enjoy your trip to Chicago!

Ms D- That sounds like a good response!

Jpack- when /are you testng? I feel like since we were a 'day' apart I can go by you...

Devilish?? Did we miss something?

AF!- i hope I didnt miss anyone. I feel all out of sorts today. I fell asleep doing my meditation & DH woke me taking my headphones off then it took me 2 hrs to fall back to sleep. I keep wishing some crampsmon myself so I feel like this baby is making a home for itself... So far, just gas (TMI, but its funny). When will the cramps start so I can start feeling like this might actually work. Right now I feel like an imposter...

TF - I had an appt with IVF1 way back in the summer, but I cancelled b/c he's very pushy with donor eggs. I'll have to check out that link.

Wow. That was extremely depressing and makes me realize how low my chances are to have a second child.

I got a bitty faint positive this morning. I'm not ready to call it just yet. I do have 2 FRER's for testing in the morning. I am cautiously optimistic.

 

Edit: I just took a FRER with SMU, and it's definitely positive. I'm so excited. I can't stop shaking or crying.


Me (33), DH (35) and DD1 (3) conceived naturally after 6 months. After TTC#2 for 15 months, finally got a pos.gif on my second cycle of Clomid, DD2 born Sept, 2013. Can I convince my DH it's a great idea to have another one?

toothfairy - i'm thinking cramps will come this evening or tomorrow... watch funny movies! laugh a lot! studies show laughter helps implantation or something like that. seriously. i will have to check out that amh link...

skj - i hate that we are having to google the same things but i'm so glad to have a google buddy. hope those results come back soon! waiting is the worst.

afm - looks like AF is holding off. spotting but no flow yet so i should be day 3 when i get back. phew.

Fingers crossed hard for you devilish!!!

Indie - I agree. I cannot find any peer reviewed articles linking AMH to quality, just my own recurrent losses. But, it only takes 1 good egg, so I just need to keep trying to catch it.

That's fantastic, devilish have you/will you set up for a beta?

TF I've been testing, waiting for the trigger to go. Days 5-8 past the trigger were indistinguishably similar- no pattern. Finally, today's seems a little lighter (9 dp trigger, 8 dpo). I'll let you know if it's gone! I'm wishing those little crampy twinges upon myself, too, but no dice! Fingers crosses for both of us!

Have a nice trip, Indie and good luck the spotting holds out.

SKJ- and other google researchers- please forgive me if you already know this - and I know many of you know way more about all this than I do, but I was chatting with a friend IRL recently who didn't know about this resource so here goes just in case anyone's missing it: to search scholarly journals (sometimes only the abstract is available, sometimes there's links to the whole article) go to scholar.google.com

Skj, TF - you are totally welcome, it's so nice that you're all happy about it.

Indie - im 12 dpo With 3 days till AF... Wasted another test this morning bfn - so I have no clues lol will have to wait and see but not holding my breath.
I appreciate sharing with you girls, as I feel my trip is a long one too - just in a different way 😊

Devilish - HOORAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sending you all the sticky baby vibes in the world!!

chuord - happy to have you here with us. I hope your test turns around to a BFP!

jpack - Thanks for the tip. I'm lucky that I get access to most journals through my job. But, I"m usually too lazy to read past the abstract smile.gif

bebe - hola.gif. Miss you!

AFM - Woo hoo! I finally talked to a nice person at my insurance company! So, it turns out that the lab that charged me an arm and a leg for the RPL blood tests should have filed a claim with my insurance instead of trying to collect the money from me. My insurance would then have seen that I saw a doc and had the blood work on the same day and would have tried to cover the blood work since it was ordered by my doc and not my choice which lab they sent it to. If they didn't cover it, she said I could even file a petition to have it covered, but I can do none of that until the lab files with my insurance. Scam artists! The insurance called the lab and it was very strange, like it's run out of someone's home. The billing department is closed until Wednesday, but the insurance person left a long message explaining to the lab what they need to do. So, I'm hoping I get my $500 back and don't have to pay for the other tests.

toothfairy, i seriously teared up when i read your last post. i'm so excited for you. tight and achey is fantastic sign. i'm pretty sure i'm going to bawl like a little baby when you get your bfp. you so deserve this.

 

devlish - i just saw your edit! WOOHOO! wonderful news!

 

bebe - i second skj - MISS YOU!

 

chuord - care to share why your trip is a long one in a different way? i love to hear people's stories!

 

ummm jpack - i think you are getting to the point where the trigger *should* be gone... i'm so hoping it is turning into a for real bfp!

 

skj - i look at your pic with that beautiful little girl sitting on your shoulders and i just know there is another good egg in you. can't believe i get to see you tomorrow night!

 

afm - spotting is getting heavier but i haven't started full flow yet. pretty sure i will wake up to it tomorrow. that will put me at day 3 for my baselines. of course, i will still wonder if i'm really day 4... ugh.

 

toothfairy - keep posting as those symptoms show up!!

tf - for me, it feels like I'm "aware of my uterus" if that makes any sense. It's like I have a warmth or stretching feeling. Sounds just like what you are describing!!!!!!!!!!!

indie - I sure hope you are right. I go back and forth, but mostly feel ok about things and am just trusting things will work out. I think you are day 3. Also, I think you can do baselines bt cd 2 and 4, right? So, you should be fine no matter what.

afm - the doc who I had wanted to see but was out of network with my insurance is now back in network. I'm seeing her on Friday. Nothing like juggling three different doctors and opinions smile.gif we are weaning dd from her pacifier starting tonight. It was rough, but she's asleep for now. I hate that she's growing up so fast.

TF - I agree I think it sounds very promising... Don't read too much into this - but it felt like there was still 'something' to send energy to inside you during the night sometime lol (I woke up early since I went to bed at 6pm last night)
Indie - prepare for a short novel lol! Sep 07 married 2 years and we did a 2 month Europe trip - we relaxed and had fun. I remember lying awake one early morning and felt myself implant - twice lol... 2 hours ish apart. Felt pregnant too - I felt really Ill flying home from hong kong and knew I'd lost it. We were in Adelaide, end of that year we moved to Queensland for dh surgical training (oral and Maxillofacial - dentistry and medicine required) I project managed everything perfectly - but didn't allow any spare time for recovery/emotions. So I had a burn out lol would have recovered in a fortnight but as soon as I was well I organized all the stored boxes, so burn out again.. Took me the better part of that year to lose the nervous anxiety, get the feeling of overwhelm when in a shopping centre under control - lol my mum had to buy me some undies! (I'm a girl guide (scout) at heart and cheerful and hardworking - so it was really weird) then we moved to Brisbane, I got chronic headaches which I thought were sinusitis. We bought a house, did it up and moved in, I worked on improving general health, but had dizzy issues, went to Tassie (home) for Christmas and was so dizzy I got stuck there for 3 months (thank goodness for parents!) that's when I went to the purple house and de-programmed some issues - enough to fly home (with mum)... Saw a neuro got diagnosed with vestibular migraines, apart from being so dizzy doing anything was almost impossible (6 months where a good day meant I could wash my hair while holding the shower rail, a brilliant day meant I could go buy milk) and the head pain, I lost the ability (temporarily I hope) in the brain to smooth out things like the flicker of Fluoro lights... Which also affected tv etc, anyway they tried me on several meds that didn't fix it but held it at bay enough for me to start to get a life - you know shower, cook , shop for food lol! However they were contraindicated to pregnancy (cleft lip) so I worked on getting well enough to wean off them (sept 2012) and finally we can continue what we started in 07 and work on children! I did take up quilting so I had something fun to do while ok, sonetimes i would lie in bed due to a headache and plan quilts in my head lol! am heaps better now (except the random headache), the whole time I kept remembering there are people worse off than me and not to dwell on it too much - but there were still days it got me down. Lucky for me we survived without me working, oh and my doctorate in project management has sat there for 5 years unfinished - oops.
So that is why I feel close to you girls - I understand the medical tests side, the impatience and the emotional roller coaster. I used to be so upset when my friends told me they were preggers! Cos I couldn't even try.
We will all get there - one way or another...
Happy baby dust girls!

MsD - When's your beta?

chuord - I"m so sorry for all you've been through. How absolutely awful. I've suffered from migraines in the past, but I can only imagine the debilitating dizziness along with them. I'm so glad things are looking up. I really hope you get a sticky BFP soon!

AFM - Sorry for the TMI. yesterday, I had some salmon colored crinone show up on my liner. I've read that that is totally normal. So, I didn't think much of it. This morning, my liner was normal, but when I inserted the crinone, there was a little bright red blood on the tip. I just walked for about 40 minutes and when I came home, my liner had a decent amount of watery pink discharge. I'm 7-8 DPO today and am also taking baby aspirin for the first time, but I forgot to take it yesterday. Any thoughts? I'm going to keep up the crinone unless I get AF like bleeding, but I'm not feeling great about things with this bleeding. I checked and my cervix is closed, but that's where the blood is coming from. My temps have been all over the place. When I temped at 5 something, it was a normal post-O temp of 98.1. I fell back asleep and temped again at my normal time. usually when I do that, the temp is pretty similar, maybe 0.2 different. But, my temp was 98.7 at my normal time. So, all this to say that I don't think the bleeding is progesterone related. Anyone want to talk me down??

Thanks skj! Lol and i forgot to mention the letz procedure for pre-cancerous cervix cells - man that hurts! I would love to be able to talk you down - but have absolutely no knowledge... Could it be as simple as the cervix is a bit inflamed from body changes and you accidentally touched it with the crinone and got some spot bleeding? Like happens to me with a pap smear? Apparently I have an 'outy' (non technical term lol) cervix and it gets sensitive. I would try not to stress too much and see what happens tomorrow... I've been spotting on and off for 7 days now - sometimes pink sometimes brown... It has to start off red and undiluted somewhere.
Else wise lol I'm deluding myself as well as you!
Afm still no certain signs, the 7 pregnancy symptoms have gone except the meat craving, as has what I thought were implantation cramps... So it may have been imagined!... AF due tomorrow so we shall see (although last month I was a week and a half late and still no bfp) I don't know how you ladies deal with the crazy making! I'm thinking If no AF by early next week I'll go to the gp and get a blood test. Normally the only way I can tell AF is from being over emotional lol - and I've been that way for 2 weeks! Please write heaps about yourselves to distract me 😃 I love reading your stories
Hugs and positivity to the rest of you xx

me 39, DH 39, one no babies yet due to previous poor health. Trying to make up for it now (TTC since November 2012) At least one confirmed chem.Ivf #1 march 2014 - 6 day 6 blasts, two transferred bfn, 4 frosties in waiting. Ivf #2 may, cancelled, Ivf #3 July... BFP! 15dpo 336 hcg, 17dpo 681 hcg... Looking good so far

Dang - I missed a day!  Yes yes!! That is a good sign, and I did not see any spotting until like 2 weeks later, so don't worry if you don't have any yet!  YAaaay!!!!

SKJ - I had a similar experience when I was taking the endometrium.  Not sure if I pushed the applicator up too high or what, but it turned out okay.

 

TF - How are you today?  I say TEST on the 13th! I am not good at being patient.  

 

Chuord - what a journey for you.  Very glad you are doing better

 

Indie - Glad AF held off!

 

MsD - when do you test?

SKJ, I do know aspirin is likely to make you bleed, and didn't some one (here?) say crinone caused irritation? I would venture to guess its nothing to worry about or out of the ordinary. And the temp thing is interesting- good to see what it's at tomorrow. I can never use temps from having woken up earlier, they are always way off for me. But I've got fingers crossed for you!

Chuord, what an ordeal. Glad you're doing better now! I hope you get your Bfp without any trouble!

Gtree, how are those boys?

Indie- you're traveling, right? Have lovely travels!

TF holding up ok? I'm going out of my mind, but soon will be so busy I won't have time to fret. Or so I hope...

AFM I'm pretty down-hearted. But it's ok. The trigger has finally faded to a squinter (just as of this evening) and I'm feeling pretty negative. I do have to share a funny snippet of my dream last night - in the dream, I had a wondfo and even though it had a broad, abnormal smudge, I knew it was positive- darker than the rest. In the dream, my mom even asked how I knew it was positive. This morning's test (still positive but the trigger) had a very similar big smudge as it dried, something I've never seen before! I thought it was funny... Anyway, on Thursday am, my folks leave for the Caribbean so I'll be so, so busy with all the real estate. Hopefully busy enough to take my focus away from this. Bleh! Beta's on Monday but af will likely arrive before that so... Onto my least favorite few days of the cycle, 10-12dpo.

J(30) + J(34) = E(6/2009)  ...  + ?(?)

So I'm realizing what I'm feeling is the same as I usually feel from taking progesterone & being 6/7 dpo. Just kind of tight & full. The cramps I felt yesterday turned out to be that I had to pee & the way I was laying made it feel like cramps instead of bladder pain. Once I peed they went away. No symptoms today. Already googled... You can get whatever answer you want from google. Turns out you CAN get a BFP from a 5 day blastocyst transfer with absolutely no symptoms... Ah duh... Thanks google for reminding me not to use you and just to wait another damn week!

Okay, I'll come back tomorrow for personals when I can use the laptop.
Indie & skj- hope youre having a fab time together!

Darn it! We totally should have.

As you can imagine, Indie is amazing! Had a great time getting to know her even better. Can't wait for the next scenic girls meet up! TF - that means you.

TF - Ugh. It's so hard to wait, isn't it. And, this is like the HUGE TWW. I want this for you so bad. I'm sending out all the positive vibes to you and your little embryo snuggling inside. Now that I've been pregnant 4 times, I can say that each time has been different - from knowing at 7 DPO to being shocked at 12 DPO. So, I have total confidence that this is going to work out.

Jpack - sorry you are feeling down. When do you usually get a BFP? I'm hoping that tomorrow's test is darker! But, glad you have work to take your mind off things. Um, and I think you may be clairvoyant with that dream of yours.

gtree - Thanks for that thought. I tried not to go as far in tonight. So far, so good. How are you feeling?

AFm - lots of cramping today. I actually started to feel it as I was explaining to TF what it felt like. I think they are sympathy cramps. But, should know if they mean anything by this weekend.
