Haven't been posting too much because I'm trying (*emphasis on trying
) not to obsess too much.CRM
, thanks for doing the thread...may it bring you lots of luck and
Your transfer sounds like it couldn't have gone better...I can't wait to break out a whole bunch of these guys
: for your soon-to-be
:Also, can you please add me to TTC?
Here is my info:
Claire (31), married to N (28) and TTC #1 after 2 losses (6.5 weeks, 11.5 weeks). Dx with compound heterozygous MTHFR, currently on Folgard & BA, will go on Lovenox injections upon positive beta. Husband dx with low morphology (9%). Currently on IUI with injectables cycle #1.Ann
, sorry you're joining...just like the TTC After Loss club, the Infertility TTC club is yet another no one wants to join.
Sucks that we're both members of both
, glad to hear the sperm numbers have increased.
Try not to worry about the elevated FSH...my RE always says that numbers are numbers and he deals with people...my FSH isn't "great" but he says my OVARIES look "great" so he'd rather have good ovaries than good blood test numbers. So you never know with just a number...this isn't a science, although it's hard to remember that. Good luck with your stimming...any idea when your IUI might be?Jelinifer
, so sorry to hear about your hubby's morphology. My hubby also has morphology issues, although his was 9%...so far, that's all they've found for us. We're doing IUI with injectables this month (I'm 7 dpiui today) but I think if this month doesn't happen, we'll likely move forward to IVF with ICSI, since that's the treatment recommendation for morphology. The bad news is that it's so extreme and expensive...but the good news is that the ICSI will theoretically eliminate the problems created by the morphology.
I'm also sorry your hubby feels alone and isolated...my hubby doesn't talk about it, but I'm sure he feels somewhat "defective" since our fertility problems have only been linked so far to the morphology. It's so hard for men, because this is SO not something they talk about with their buddies.Autumnlaughing
...hope you caught that eggie!! laura-belle
, let us know how the IVF consult goes in a few weeks.Needleinthehay
, good luck with your appointment!!
AFM, we are 7 dpiui, and as I mentioned on the TTC after loss boards, I am going looney-tunes waiting.
We had great follicle numbers (5 mature in the 20+mm. range and 5-6 in the high teens mm. range) and the IUI happened literally AS I was ovulating...I could feel it, believe me, with all of those follies, it felt like labor.
And yesterday, at my acupuncturist appointment, he told me that he was fairly certain that I had a pregnant pulse.
I'm not sure I buy that stuff, but it's exciting to hear (on one hand) and crazymaking on the other hand...like I'm not thinking about it day and night already, now I'm checking my pulse every 5 minutes trying to determine if it's still
"pregnant" or not.
Just so you all know, my pulse feels like....a pulse.
How the HECK am I supposed to know how to feel a pregnant pulse?? The only piece of information I'm getting from the obsessive pulse-checks is that I'm alive.
Anyway, clearly my staying away from the boards multiple times a day isn't helping with my obsession level, so maybe I'll just come back full swing!!
Good luck to everyone...looking for good news from people soon!
