Daisy - joy.gifbroc1.gifcarrot.gifbanana.gifjoy.gif!!!!!!  Praying this is a sticky one for you!!  Congrats!!  Hope you are starting the next BFP streak over here!!!!!

 

Aura - glad things got changed!!!!  Ouch!!!
 

Silver - that is good information to know b/c you don't want to waste your time and money if going the donor route is ultimately the best option.  I think it sounds like you are on your way w/ the process that will give you the most chance of having a baby.  Fingers crossed for you!!!

 

vireoes - You must be getting closer to starting here too, right? 


After 5 failed IUI's & 6 failed IVF's we threw in the towel w/ ART and then got a NATURAL miracle BFP! Hoping and praying it is finally our take home baby!  Mother to our twins boys in heaven -lost at 22.5wks on 6/20/09 and 1 other little angel in heaven.

Our Miracle has arrived... Caden James...

Just one. With the microarray cgh we were told our chances of multiples would be extremely high if we did more than one (especially since we have one son through cgh testing) and we're more comfortable with a singleton at this point if possible.

I tested again this morning (of course - now I'm obsessed).  It was positive again but I don't think the line was quite as dark as on the test I took yesterday afternoon (same brand, different pkg).  Maybe one shade lighter?  Should I be concerned about that?

Blue - I am feeling fine, and my mom is actually doing pretty good. They ended up raising her rent by $1,000 to provide her more care, which I was fine with because the alterniative was to kick her out.

 

Delilish - Sorry. I was confused. I didn't remember your name, so I added you to the list of people who didn't have blurbs. In any case, you are welcome to hang out here.

 

Aura - I booked my tickets, got a hotel room, got my consents notorized, and have DH working on a plan for boarding or having somebody watch the dogs. I even rescheduled DSs violin lesson for when he will be gone. So yea, I am excited too :) Ouch to the PIO. I am sure Dr. T knows what he is doing.

 

Silver - I wouldn't look back either. I am not doing donor eggs, but we are using donor sperm for half. I have looked into it a lot, and the only reason we didn't go with it was the cost. I know Vegan has looked into it a lot too, so maybe she will chime in. Here are a few things I have considered: Have you thought about open identity? In the US, you get the choice of the child being able to know the identity of the donor when they turn 18. that is the option I went with for our sperm donor, because I didn't want to close the door to that option for my kid(s) if they are curious when they get older. Since it is an option, they can always choose not to. Anther thing I have read is a decision to (or not) to tell people you are using a donor. I decided that I probably wouldn't, because I think i would want to leave that decision up to the kid and if I go ahead and tell friends and family beforehand the kid won't be able to have a choice whether or not they want the world to know.

 

Daisy - Yay!!!! joy.gif

 

AFM - I took DS camping this weekend. At a waffle house parking lot he and his friend who also went camping with us saw a girl holding a baby chicken (like 2 or 3 days old). They went up to pet it and the girl said that she got it at a flea market "because it was cute" and didn't really know what to do with it. I couldn't believe somebody could be so careless with another life.  She didn't have a coop or food or anything. In fact, she just had it in her had and didn't have a box in the car. So she said "want it?" I said yes. I told her she was pretty careless with this little chick, and you really aren't supposed to have just one, and chicken are kindof a lot of work (she didn't have a heat lamp either, and it was pretty cold out). So anyway, we have a little chick. I don't know the breed (looks like a rhode island red maybe). And I hope it is female. But DS is so happy he has not put her down since we brought her home. We had to go into waffle house to get a take-out box to put her in for the ride home. I also started BCP on Saterday.


Mom to DS 12/07 and DD 11/13, plus a bunch of chickens, dogs, and cats.

Dasiy joy.gif congratulations! This thread is doign well! I wouldn't worry about the colour of the line.  My understanding is that a lot of things can affect how much hcg is in your urine like how much water your drinking and time of day.  hpt are not that sophisitcated, they are mesuring how much hcg is in your urine not how pregant you are.

 

Blue: thanks I hope your right!

 

rcr: in the UK all our donors are open id donors.  I think I will prob tell most people straight off about donor, I'll need to for the pserm donor so might as well say about the eggs too.  plus a lot of research seems to suggest this can be easier for most kids.


Missing my dh everyday candle.gif and hoping there is a brighter future for me out there

I took another this afternoon and it was just as dark as yesterday's. Maybe it's an afternoon vs morning thing for me. Fingers crossed that it sticks and is just one in a loooong chain of successes on this thread!

AF is here. Not officially day 1 yet, but for me it might as well be. I hate that it has to be red flow when I know she's arrived. If I could claim today then I wouldn't have to get my day 3 after sedation again. Ugh! I might see about moving my dentist appointment to Wednesday or Friday.

Toothfairy -- My successful IVF cycle protocol was microdose flare, which basically involved a lot less lupron and about the same dose of everything else. I also had (still have) progesterone shots instead of the endometrin.

Daisy -- When is your beta?

Aura -- Congrats over here too!

AFM -- A bit more on the other side, but our ultrasound went well. We are having one baby and everything looks good!

Mom to William 5/2013! Finally have a kid after our second IVF and more than 5 years of TTC.

Silver - I didn't mean keep it from the kid, I meant keep it from everybody else so that the kid can decide if he/she wants the  rest of the world to know. Glad to hear they are all open id donors in the UK. That is so much better than in the US, where open ID seem kinda hard to find.

 

Aura !!! yay! I knew it too!!

 

Laura - glad things are going well!

 

I am so happy with all the good news on this thread!

Glad to get so many BFPs and good news on this thread. Let's keep it going! AFM- I can count today as day 1, so yes, of course, that means going in after sedation, but I can go late enough it should have worn off by then.

Great news Laura and Aura.  How exciting for both of you.

DH SA from yesterday showed great #s except for morphology which came back at less than 0.5%. They recommended ICSI. I was also prescribed levothryoxine 25mcg daily as I tested positive for anti-thryroid antibodies. I guess all else came back fine, my AMH was 1.04.

Toothfairy, it's great that they were able to find issues that are treatable!  I just noticed that you're in my general neck of the woods.  What clinic are you using?
