I'd love to join this month.

My DH and I have been TTC #3 since April 2007. We have 2 children already (2001 and 2004) and didn't have much trouble conceiving them. I had a miscarriage in Oct. 2008. I am now seeing an RE who doesn't think I have PCOS, but I do have a slightly elevated DHEAS level. I had an HSG about 2 weeks ago which came back normal. Dh's SA was normal as well. All other hormone levels are normal. I have an appt. in the morning to get all my results in more detail and see what we are going to do. My insurance doesn't cover much and I don't know that we can drain our savings in order to do any advanced fertility methods.

I'd love to hang out on this thread, though!

You can change mine to TTC#1 since 7/07. Doing IUI #6 in March.

Beta tomorrow, but I poas this morning and it was a BFN. So for March we will be doing our 6th IUI, but it will be our first with injectibles. Pretty much just waiting for AF right now.

Our insurance doesn't cover any fertility treatments so I'm hoping the clomid I'm on works!

I took my last pill yesterday. Think I had my first side effects this morning. I was burning up when I woke up this morning and I've been having abdominal pain on and off all morning.

As weird as it sounds, I'm kind of glad for the side effects. At least I know the medicine is doing something.

Thanks!

Sorry I have been really quiet here. I am going through a severe bout of depression here. Just wrapping the idea of IVF in my head and my body failing me.

I just got back from the docs to see how I was healing from my surgery. Heres the nitty gritty. My incisions are ok but inflamed. The fimbria (the hand-like finger) are totally blocked on both sides. I saw pics of them and I was so shocked that they are blocked. I saw them with my own eyes. The surgeon was so caring (totally opposite form last pre-op visit). He said he was also shocked and he can't believe it. He never suspected it. He was caught off guard to. So as it stands its unexplained. No hx of infections or endo. My gall-bladder surgery done yrs ago had no effect. Surgeoon says it happens without fully knowing why. Maybe the higher ups want me to do IVF. I don't know the reason why for all of this. Everything else is fine.

We decided to do IVF. I got about 25-30% chance. Not good but at least we have that. Right now I have zippo chance. He said I could go back in surgery to repair it but he thinks after all the risks, chances of closing again, etopics ets that my chance of IVF is better.

Now **gulp** the cost. I can scrape money for the first cycle but if this one fails we will go to cornell in nyc and then to the one in colorodo. So at least I have a plan but my goodness gracious I will be very poor, in so much debt after all of this. DH is like save our pennies. Hes like turning the heat down in the house, telling me need to do this and that.

All of this irks me so much when in normal life once can have a baby for free now I have to pay tons of money for people to make a baby for us. This so against my thinking. Who said money can't buy happiness. No one would say this if they were not dealing with infertility!

But I have noticed they are treating me little better and differently. I better get excellent service after paying an arm and leg for this!

I am looking at an IVF in April time.

wtg- We took out a loan to pay for our cycle. It sucked but I honestly don't mind paying that bill every month. So worth it. I know it is hard.

Just wanted to update that my RE today diagnosed us with unexplained secondary infertility and she recommends we move on to IUI. They do have pre-pay plan in their office, which is a nice discount, so I think we will at least give one cycle a shot. I just don't know that we can do it month after month after month unfortunately. So, I have my fingers crossed that it works (or that I am pregnant now from just the clomid!). My husbands sperm count is great and my ovarian reserve is very good, so she said that we should have a good chance.

Hello All,

I was wondering if I can be added to this thread...

We've have been trying for 4 years and have had 1 failed IVF attempted that was terrible. I over stimmed and had such poor egg quality that no embbies survived. After 6 months off and 1 year of more tests, a new clinic and new RE. We are know looking at another IVF. This will be our final attempt for both financial and psychological reasons. 4 years of ttc is taking a toll on us.

We are to start our next cylce on March 17 with stimming starting at the beggining of April with retrieval and transfer mid month.

Thank you for letting me share this time with you,

Clara

nummies-thanks for the advice. I think of you all the time esp when you were basically "cornered" into IVF like me. Very unexpected. Its a total shocker for us. I never ever in my life thought I would be doing this. But I am. At least I can say I have done it in my lifetime. I have to look at the positive side, right. I just hope it can get us a little one. 20yrs back we would never have this option so I guess I should be thankful.

Laci- IVF/IUI and all other ART are umbrelled under the IF One thread. The separate monthly IUI and IVF threads are more specific.

Wgt- I'm glad to hear this surgeon was much nicer to you. I am sorry for your poor tubes. What a perplexing thing. But, look how many roadblocks you have overcome. Each one brings you closer to your destination. When is your IVF consult?

by-the-lake-how are you doing. How many dpo are you? I lost track of some of you here.

Once I get my meds I will be start making appt with the IVF nurse. I am waiting for AF this cycle. I am not ready right now to start lupron. I will wait till next cycle which will be right at the end of March or beginning of April.

Right after the post-op appt they were already ready to order my meds. WOW. They are moving quickly. They wanted me to pay right that moment but I told them to fight insurance first. Either way I will be getting my meds by next week. They said once I get the meds I will call for an appt to talk to the nurse.

Dh is also thinking like you also. He is happy to know that we are on the right path now. Hes kind of relieved to know that they found something and we can move on. I'm still stunned by it. Kind of weird all of this happening.

I just wanted you to know I am thinking of you. In the end if you are in debt up to your eyeballs and have a child to hold in your arms.....it will be all worth it. We spent way more money than we could have ever afforded on our IUI cycles, but I wouldn't have done it any other way. Afterall, you can't take it with you, right?! Best wishes with everything and know I am thinking positive thoughts and praying like heck that this works for you guys. What awesome parents you will be one day soon!

Thanks gumby74 for your kind words. They are so heart-warming. You know I always say money comes and goes. If you save for something, the universe will find ways to take it from you. So I figure I will just do whatever I have to do. Deep down, I am guarding my heart in case we failed. I am so afraid after all we been through we will still not get pregnant in the future. Its so hard to deal with this unknown.

By-the-lake- Thanks so much for answering my question. I just did not want to lose track of WTG. You know what I mean.

WTG: Do whatever makes you happy. If you don't take the chance would you regret it later. I have faith that it will work for you. As for the money, you will make it work!

Hello to everyone!

Thanks Laci for thinking about me. Thanks for bringing up the IVF and IUI thread. Juliasmom was so nice to start one for us. I wish I could join you in the IUI thread. I never got the "joys" of doing IUI. I wish you luck in your next cycle. I have seen from other boards that it takes on avg 3-4 IUIs to get the BFP. One of them you will be the one. I noticed on your IUI thread you are going to their office at 3pm. I didn't realize they are open this late on a Saturday. What is AP stand for. I being dumb now

by-the-lake--(and also to nummies) -It has come to this point now. Maybe after this cycle taking a break would be great for both of you. You both have been through alot these past months. Like you said enjoy your family now and take a much needed break. Spring and summer are coming up and you can enjoy them without this unneeded stress. But hopefully you won't have to take a break cause you might just get surprised this month.

booja'smom--thanks for the warm wishes

Ok I got it now. I need to do AP also. Laci is the AP thing on the top floor of the building. I am thinking of calling tomorrow and making an appt with them. I guess they do massages and nutrition counseling also.

wtg4miracle, best of luck on your IVF! I agree the unknown is the worst part. If someone told you that you'll have to spend lots of money and undergo a bunch of treatments, but in the end you'll have a baby it would all be so much easier. Like Laci, I also have a feeling you'll get your baby. When you first posted about it after your operation, my first thought was that IVF will work for you. So I hope I'm right!

by-the-lake, if you could update my info I'd really appreciate it. I didn't bother updating last month since I joined the thread so late. Here it is:

Needle In the Hay - Experiencing unexplained secondary infertility for 5+ years. 2 failed IUIs (w/clomiphene & trigger), planning an unmedicated IUI this month if all goes well. Hypothyroidism seems to be under control according to my latest bloodwork.
Thanks!
