I predict that in 9 months TF will be giving birth to a teddy bear and a baby with an extremely large but cute mouth.

Sherry - hugs on the app... So tempting to throw it!

TF - they look beautiful! Sending them love and hugs.

Chrissy - can I be just a little optimistic for you if I do it quietly? ☺

Sila - how's that excitement?

Thanks for the love... Still nothing happening... Just tired.

Hello my wonderfully supportive friends! I am so sorry I've been absent! I will catch up on personals tomorrow. These past few weeks have been rough! I got incredibly lucky (probably some divine intervention) and I did not have to have surgery. My HCG went from 355 to 155 overnight and the mass decreased significantly. I have since passed it naturally! Thank god! I got to keep my tube! We are heart broken but also kind of always felt something was wrong...as you all know! We have been picking up the pieces and moving forward. I have to say being a psychotherapist royally sucks when life gets in the way! Really hard to be there for clients when I'm not ok! Had a horrible experience when telling a "friend" and she proceeded to tell me it just may not be for me. I told her that is not effing ok to say to me right now...yikes! Love to you all and thank you!!!!!

Me- 35 pcos DH- 37 no issues
TTC since December 2008 9 clomid cycles...break! 2 more clomid cycles with trigger and TI
IUI #1 April 2013- BFP Ectopic May 2013 IUI #2,#3,#4 BFN
IVF #1 Dec 2013- BFP! MC 9 1/2wks.
IVF #2 June 2014- OHSS 5 frosties
FET #1 August 2014 BFP!!
Identical Twins!!

Adiejan - yay for the fact that it all resolved naturally, and you got to keep the tube... Hugs on all the hardship for you both... Lol and a verbal slap in the face to your friend - what a thing to say 😵😵
When you feel up to it let us know if you gave to wait to try again, or what you're feeling will be best for you. Mean time - take care xxx

Sherry I love what you drew. I just love it. I'm going to have DH print it for me when he gets home.

Adie- I'm so relieved to hear from you & that it resolved without surgery. Your friend is a jerk. So insensitive & uncalled for.

Hugs to you all. Still trying to keep quiet & encourage my babies to grow & hatch & stick & then keep growing for 9 months.

Sherry- I LOVE the embryo interpretation! A new line of work?! And sorry about the app. But how does it know? I mean really... smile.gif

Sila- very cool that you brought ds. That's fantastic news- I'm so happy for you

Chrissy- I hope your mom can find some financial relief, and I'm really hoping this is a good 2ww for you!!

TF- yay!!!!! I'm so excited about Ursa and Luna!! (I'm calling them that, beats embabies)

Chuord, I'm sorry about your lousy wait. I hope it comes and goes quickly!

SKJ I'm really glad for your docs investigation! That really instills confidence (though I agree that routine induction doesn't). Hey, play it by ear, right?! I'm so, so glad you're feeling comfortable.

Adie- I'm glad you kept your tube! And so glad that you're healing.

adie - WOW, what a miracle that you were able to keep your tube! so happy for you! I totally understand the difficulty being present with clients while going through a tough time. I'm a Marriage and Family therapist but have been keeping a very limited practice because I make more money in the corporate world (and, you know, IF treatments are expensive!) but even with keeping just a few clients it has been hard to truly stay present with their pain while going through my own... so I have recently stopped seeing clients altogether. My current job can be stressful with traveling, etc. but in many ways it's a lot less stressful than working with  clients (for now... I hope to return eventually). And I'm glad that you told your friend that her response was NOT ok. OMG. That would have sent me over the edge.

 

sila - congrats!! one healthy babe! what a relief... i'm glad you didn't have to go through the stress of not hearing a heartbeat...

 

toothfairy - you know i'm rooting you on... i am already in love with your little embabies!

 

skj - SO glad you have your new OB. and SO jealous the chicago health care is so awesome and you have so many choices!

 

jpack - sooooo... what are the hpts saying today?

 

chrissy - glad things are starting to seem a little more reasonable financially with your mother's care...

 

sherry - still counting on dh's super sperm to get the job done... i'm sorry you are having such a scheduling nightmare :(

 

chuord - has AF shown up?

 

did I miss anyone?

 

afm - I'm so sorry to check out. I've been so self consumed and drowning in boring and complicated IVF details that it's hard to know how much to share and how much is too much. I'm always worried that I'm completely overloading people IRL with the minutia and then I don't want to overload here too... so sometimes it's just easier to check out, altogether. I have been reading along though. The short of it is that it looks like I start testosterone priming in a couple of days and will do that for this cycle and then will do a modified IVF protocol next cycle (a lot like an IUI cycle - combo of clomid and fsh in an effort to retrieve just one or two eggs) then we will freeze and do a couple more cycles. That's the plan, anyway. We'll see what really happens... :)

I'm really interested in your protocol, Indie! Sounds really cool! If you don't want to share- I get it, but you're always welcome to share the details if you want smile.gif

My Hpts were pretty much neg yesterday, so I stopped testing. It's ok, though, two cycles of natural and then IVF when we get back (July). The appointment with the new doc was really nice yesterday. He is definitely the best fit - not defensive at all, very direct and really understanding about timing (his kids, via IVF, are almost 4 years apart so he was really understanding). One thing that was interesting is that he seems really confident that he can get us pregnant. I'm kinda weird, but honestly I would actually prefer to adopt, it's just that there are more hurdles. He was fine with the metformin, he was up front that IVF won't solve the implantation problem, but he thinks that it'll work in a relatively short timeline. So that's my news- so so so busy and crazy trying to get everything ready for my class and for renting my house. I leave Friday- I'm gonna have a hard time away from the fam until they join me on June 3. But I'm really looking forward to teaching, so it's all good.

Hey all! Some decent news around here it looks like.
 
Indie, I know how you feel and I'm so sorry you are feeling overwhelmed by all the IVF details. You can always share here as much or as little as you want and we will listen. I know what you mean about not wanting to bore your IRL friends with minutiae. All my real life friends know I am having fertility troubles but none know exactly what's going on.
 
TF- so happy your transfer went so well! Thanks for sharing the pic of the embryos... very exciting. Fingers crossed!
 
Jpack-- are those HPTs turning around yet?? I'm hoping for you. hope hope hope.
 
Chrissy, I am so frustrated for you that money is a concern with your mother's surgery. I agree with SKJ, health care in our country is just a nightmare. I hope you get good news soon to balance out what else is going on in your family.
 
SHERRY!!! I just nearly LOL'd myself to death over here!!! Thank you so much, I just adored that and it brightened my day. As for you, I'm sorry that your app and your scheduling is messing with things. I'm hoping for better news soon...
 
Adiejan, thank you so much for updating us. How miraculous and wonderful that you could keep your tube and it passed naturally. What a stinkin' relief. And man... your friend... what a craptastic thing to say. People say the most offensive things to us, it's ridiculous.
 
SKJ, it sounds like there have been some ups and downs-- I have to say this OB asking another specialist's advice and then calling you impresses me. It's rare for a doctor to be that inquisitive and thoughtful. I have found instead they are quick to act like they know everything (even when they don't).
 
Sila!!! So happy for your healthy little person inside you! This is such wonderful news. Are you relieved it's not twins? It sounds like DS is excited, no?
 
Chuord, I'm bummed that AF was just late. Late AF is just so unfair.
 
OK!! did I get everyone?  I apologize if I missed you.
 
As for me, I'm just treading water right now. Lots of waiting.
 
My doctor (SKJ's amazing doctor) has me on 400mg of progesterone every night and also the vivelle estradiol patch. One week into it and the progesterone is taking its toll... I hate it.
 
I have one week to go until my Dream Job job interview, and one week to go until I find out if this cycle worked. I am going to deliberately wait to take HPTs until after my interview, I need to keep a clear head.
 
If I get neither (the job or the pregnancy), I am going to be completely crushed... if I get both, I will be really anxious...

Happily married for 5 years. Tried for our first baby 6/2011, got preg right away, and miscarried. Took a 4 month break, and then had nothing but infertility & a few early miscarriages until 12/2012 when we learned I had a lumpy edge in my uterus. Doc removed it and now we are trying again....

jpack- we cross posted. I'm so sorry. It sounds like you have things to look forward to this summer and are taking it pretty well- I admire that so much.

 

I wanted to add two things.

 

1) This article about repeat miscarriages. It's old-- 2009-- but I'd never read it before. And I cried reading it. 

 

 

2) Has anyone else noticed that some women pretend that they got pregnant more easily than they actually did? I have two recent examples of this, and in both cases, the women know I've been struggling and still chose to act like they can't relate.  

 

In one case, her brother-in-law is a close friend of mine and he told me they tried for nearly a year, and when she got pregnant I congratulated her, and despite her knowing about my troubles (I stood tall and told her we were having trouble), she said she got pregnant no problem at all.

 

In another case, one of my closest friends is pregnant. For the last six months, she's been confiding in me about how she and her husband were "thinking about trying" and then every month or so she'd express mixed feelings about getting her period. THEN, when she actually did get pregnant, she claimed it was on her "first try".

 

What's up with that? It makes me feel even more like a leper, like everyone is so terrified at ending up like me that they have to pretend that getting pregnant was easier than it was.

Daurelia - as rude as their attitude is I'd write them off as trying to impress for no real reason - it reminds me of the fake bravado show off some school kids do to impress others... And obviously they were too dumb to realize you would know better. Fake is soo ugly, and yet you stood tall and were honest - be proud of you and sorry for them... Fx for you next week on both fronts!
Sherry - ok (derr!) now I get the pics - was having a very ditsy moment! They are really awesome! (Quiet optimism still proceeding)
TF - still sending you zen and peace... With lots of love for ursa and Luna!
Indie - I'm with Jpack, share as much or as little as you like 😄 everyone here is soo supportive and interested, everyone gives and receives happily - it such a lovely place! Btw I love to hear glimpses of what you ladies do... It always adds to my 'perception' of your characters 😊☺😄
Jpack - when is AF due? Is there a chance the Hpts are wrong? Otherwise I hope everything moves quickly for you!
Chrissy - hugs!
Mama blue - any results from your iui?
Bebe - hi there
SKJ, sila - hugs to those wonderful babies!

Afm - still no AF here, not bothering to test this am, temp dropped again so there is no chance I'm pg... Just waiting now for AF... Cd 36 already - lol at this rate I'll be lucky to get 11 cycles in a 12 month!

Daurelia - That actually makes a lot of sense to me. As humans it is in our nature to avoid and push down feelings of pain and move toward pleasure. It is happier to think, especially after you have resolved, that it really wasn't that bad. Over time as you continue to tell yourself that it becomes your reality. Things are always so so much harder when you are going through them. I don't think it is at all a mater of your friends being terrified of your situation, they just currently cannot relate and aren't equipped to best support you. But, the women here are! 

 

SKJ - Omg you're officially 2nd trimester! Personally, I think you have a little Scorpio on your hands ;)

 

Jpack - Well crap. I hope the coming months fly by! I picture you as a fabulous teacher!

 

Adiejan - Thanks for the update! You have been in my thoughts. What a miracle! So happy to hear it, but again so so sorry for your loss.

 

Indie - I have actually hear of protocols like that for women with poor response and/or DOR! I think it is a fabulous idea! Yes, I am relieved that I will not have to wrap my head around the idea of a high risk pregnancy and a hospital birth. Also glad that my intuition was right.

 

AFM - We announced and our parents are so excited! We are still keeping it to family and best friends only. I'm not even sure I will even make any kind of announcement on facebook or Instagram at all, and suddenly will just have another child. However, I can see how that might be hurtful to some people so I guess I'll figure something out...

Daurelia- I think some people consider if they didn't see their OBGyn or an RE that they didn't have any trouble. It's frustrating to me too, it took my coworker 14 months & she'd just pretended like they were never 'trying' when I know she was charting & using OPKs much of that time. I'm sorry about your friends, it hurts not to have their support but at the same time the fertility journey turns into when people think they get it & you, having done more without success feel like they really have no idea about what you're going through. You just can't win. That's why we are here. We get you smile.gif

Tf. Glad you liked it...after I did that I worried about overstepping my boundaries with your embies

Daurelia. I hope you get the one that needs to happen first to bring you the greatest happiness.

Chourd....I am trying hard at quiet optimism....but I am thrashing.

Sila- how great to get to a place where you can start to celebrate and look forward.

Jack. Sorry about the hpt. Best of luck going forward with your new adventure!!!

I am full fledged brain obsessed!! Someone help me!!! I have Google intoxication. Taking turns at excited and dread while I try for short bursts to occupy my body so I don't keep googling the same stuff I have for the past 2+ years!! I know there is nothing to do but wait and see.....but ....aaaarrrggghhhh!

Sherry - sending you hugs, zen and lots of distractions! I'm getting a little obsessive myself... Hmm maybe a hobby, an old but new to you tv show that you can become obsessed with, or a good book?
Lol I still have no AF... Did another test yesterday and bfn... Hungry and queasy are now mixed together - but I know that could very well be progesterone... And starving every few hours lol... My lp has to be at least 15days possibly up to 18... (Normal is 14) and I heard that's the bit that's meant stay regular... Lol all I can think of is that me stopping using asprin is changing my cycle... But you bet ya I've been google crazy too!

I posted this morning...but its gone...

Chourd...yes any news? When did you stop the progesterone?
Hungry and queasy are here as well along with the rest of the 7 dwarves of progesterone: bloaty, grouchy, sleepy, sluggy and blah.

I feel shameful whining when the rest of the thread TTC is on the big guns....I probably wouldn't survive ivf prep....I was never able to take oral contraceptives either...

Chrissy when do YOU test?

I am off in a minute for my endless drive to Brooklyn....pick.I hate driving when I don't feel well.

Post post post everyone!!!!

The inlaws are gone, so it's time for me to catch up!!!

Adiejan - I don't think I ever said how sorry I am that you had to go through such a horrendous experience. I'm so glad you got to keep your tube though. hug2.gif

sherry - I hate the 7 progesterone dwarfs too! Hope the trip to Brooklyn isn't too bad.

Chrissy - sorry for the BFN greensad.gif Hope it turns around. Do you usually get early BFPs?

Chuord - Where oh where is that BFP? She's being elusive and it's just not fair!

!Sila - So glad you are getting to the fun part!! Any feeling about gender? I ditched FB months ago, so I'm wondering the same thing. I may announce after the anatomy scan. Not sure. Are you still on the shots??

Daurelia - That is seriously annoying. I can see trying to minimize the pain when talking to others that haven't been through the ringer, but to another friend who has been suffering, it's just mean in my opinion. Sorry for that. I can't wait for this coming week to fly by for you so you can know that you got the job and a BFP!!!

jpack - I"m sorry about the BFNs, but I'm so glad you found an RE that you click with. That is just great news. Have an amazing time out west!!

indie - Can't wait for this clomid IVF to start. I really think you have a great chance at getting some awesome eggs. I totally get not wanting to get into the weeds, but if you do need to just lay it all out, I would love to read all the details.

TF - Sending you strong embaby growing vibes to your bear and little girl.

AFM - It's been a crazy couple of weeks. I've had two more incidents of spotting. Joy! It's been brown and scant, but not something I'm happy about nonetheless. I spoke with my OB (new guy) yesterday and he immediately offered for me to come in today. I declined b/c I need to stop obsessing. I asked if there was any reason besides reassurance and he said there's really nothing we can do or even see at this point, so it would only be to reassure me. It was just a little bit and stopped by yesterday afternoon, so I figure all is well. I think I'm feeling the monkey move, but it's hard to tell.

I met with a hematologist on Wednesday. I told the nurse my history (blood clot after knee surgery) and gave her the RPL tests I had done. The doc comes in and basically says I don't need to be on the blood thinners. I was surprised. Then, she asked what my thoughts were and I said I was concerned b/c of my history of a clot. She then says, "OH! That changes everything. I haven't looked at the computer yet to see what the nurse talked to you about." I'm really glad I said something. At that point, she told me she wanted me on a different drug called Fragmin b/c it was more well studied in pregnant women than lovenox. And, she said they are able to monitor the blood levels with fragmin and not lovenox. So, I got to watch a DVD and take a class to learn how to give myself two injections every day. I was told I'd need to come in every two weeks for blood tests. So, I called my OB and told him what she said and he said that at the hospital where he's associated (different hospital than the heme), their protocol is lovenox. They are both university affiliated hospitals. So, he said he'd call the heme and talk to her. He called yesterday to say that they talked and she was fine with me staying on lovenox and that he'll be the one to monitor me. So, much simpler. When I talked to him, he also reiterated that I can come in whenever I need to to hear the baby on the doppler. I also read about another patient of his who delivered with him and a doula that he recommended. So, I think I read him wrong on the whole natural birth thing. I also hired my doula smile.gif Just hoping the spotting and stretching/heavy uterus/back pain feelings stay away for a while.

S (35yo) wife to T (36yo) and mamma to my princess M (5/10/10).  After 3 losses in 2012, found an AMAZING doctor and gave birth to baby sister S on 11/12/13.

SKJ - as long as it stays'old' and minor I think many woman get spotting throughout... Not that I've been pregnant but even taking one asprin (300mg i think) at least every other day was enough to make me spot at least 3 days prior to AF... I'm thinking that although the lovenox is helping you out it will probate make spotting more likely? While annoying and concerning at the time, I'm with the other ladies - this baby of yours is here to stay 😍. Lol on that note I had some very minor coloration last night - and freaked out it was AF lol - the longer it goes on the more crazy I get - more in a bit...

Sherry - I forgot to clarify, I'm not actually on extra progesterone - I just get those effects from the normal levels 😵 like you I found it really hard to take Bc... That low dose marvelon made me nauseous every day between 12-2pm... And affected my brain and creativity - which is why I've taken nothing since married lol.
Ok ladies the update... Lol I still know nothing... Cd39 now, mild spotting yesterday (tmi one wipe), yesterday and this morning my temps went back up - I've only been temping the end of the cycle (no o) but I know I O'd by cd21-22 at the latest... Which makes today 17dpo minimum... I wouldn't say I'm getting my hope up as much as I just 'feel' it is possible I'm pg. my boobs are very tender - but could be pre AF, and when I'm hungry I sometimes feel a bit nauseous. (Dizzy too but so normal for me who knows) yesterday I met my treatment lady at a lovely landscape centre with a cafe, I'd feel nauseous for 10 minutes then be fine and it kept cycling... Aside from that and getting the odd random attack of severe fatigue all is normal. I'm wondering if it could just be because I stopped the asprin my cycle is resettling, but then I read this forum... Where it seems a few people who get early bfp's with girls have to wait 3+ weeks for a bfp with boys... So I got all filled with hope and am now just trying to be calm until either AF or bfp visits.
On top of this i got invited to an interview for a job I applied to for next week... Which is both yay and terrifying... 5 years I've been out, and my confidence is shot, I hope I'm healthy enough to cope! Btw I applied for lower jobs than when I left to help lol

me 39, DH 39, one (TTC since November 2012) At least one confirmed chem.Ivf #1 march 2014 - 6 day 6 blasts, bfn, 4 frosties. Ivf #2 may, cancelled, Ivf #3 July two transferred, 3 frosties... BFP! Scan at 6+4 wks - twins!! Feeling more blessed than words!

Chrissy - So sorry. It's still early though so I'm hanging on to hope.

 

SKJ - I can't believe that Dr. didn't look at what the nurse's notes! I'm glad you get to stick to the easier plan! Congrats on hiring a doula! I'm glad you are feeling more confident in being able to deliver naturally with your new OB! We have a feeling it's a boy. But maybe because that is all we know how to do! It was too difficult to tell - especially with the position of my uterus on the u/s. We'll do another scan around 20wks. The stretching and heavy uterus feelings freak me out a little too. It's like every other week my uterus has a growth spurt for a few days and I get paranoid.

 

Chuord - I hope you are out of limbo land soon!

 

TF - I'm continuing to pray and think of your little embies snuggling in.

 

It's quiet around here. I hope that means everyone has big plans for the weekend!

 

AFM - I feel like absolute crap today. The nausea has really gotten much much better but I've been struggling with headaches for the last 4 days. I'm weaning off the PIO again. I have 4 more syringes left so I'll probably go 4 more days until 14wks. My midwife wants to test my p4 again. I also think I can feel baby move. I know I have felt it for sure 2 times now. The rest of the time it's hard to tell. I'm excited for the next few weeks when I'll be able to tell it's the baby for sure.

Adie - I'm sorry for what you went through but glad you got to keep your tube. Hugs!

 

SKJ - Yay for hiring a doula and glad your OB is so great!! Hope the spotting goes away for good soon.

 

Chourd - So, testing still or again or soon or what?!

 

Sila - Crappy about the headaches. Hope they go away soon. Might be from wacky hormones?

 

AFM - The earliest I get a bfp is 12dpo and the latest is 14dpo. So if not tomorrow I have until Monday since I'm expecting af on Tuesday. I have an odd feeling in my pelvic area. Like a deep nerve or muscle is twitching. Also have major indigestion today.
