SSB- Wonderful Beta! So exciting. I'll be praying this is your rainbow baby!

 

SKJ- I know you've already heard it from me but I'll post it here just for good measure. This is so unfair and I really hope they find some sort of answer for you at the RPL specialist.

 

Sila- Come on ovulation.... Make a good egg already damnit.

 

Brichole- Hoping for good news Friday! Any encouraging signs??

 

AFM- I had the stomach flu yesterday so I'm still feeling pretty crummy. It was nearly the worst day ever... Good news is, tonight is my last BCP and my supporession check is less than a week away!!!!!

SKJ - So sorry to hear that.  Hopefully the specialist will be helpful. 

 

Have any of you heard of the Mirena IUD causing infertility problems?  Let me start by saying I know this may be a straw I am grasping at here... Yesterday I saw a commerical for 1-800-bad-drug that was about Mirena causing problems for women including a lot of severe symptoms but one that was mentioned was miscarriage and infertility after having it.  This makes me curious if I am experiencing this.  I had Mirena for 5+ years after my first DD, had it taken out, got pregnant with DD #2 on the second cycle after.  Then, I had a new Mirena put in after DD #2.  That one I took out after about 1.5 years.  I've had a miscarriage and no pregnancy since.  I wonder if it's worth looking in to???

planegreen- It can't hurt to call and ask anyway. It won't heal your infertility but at least if there was a problem with the drug that has caused you so much trouble you can feel justified. Good luck!

SKJ - I'm so, so sorry. I really hope the recurrent loss specialist has some clear answers for you. This is not fair and nobody should have to go through what you are. Much love to you.

Warning... TMI coming...  

 

 

 

 

So... My period finally showed up today. 4 days after stopping the progesterone. What's even stranger is that on the same tissue with the first spot of blood was a small clump of mucous. I'm wondering if it was the beginnings of a mucous plug. Maybe I had an early loss? I did have a wierd pregnancy test a few days ago (11dpo)...

Hi all! We have been really busy as our 3yr old had a birthday on Monday :) 

Went in for testing on Monday, and had an ultra sound, no AF, said I had ovulated and healthy count of  foliciles on each side. Weird I ovulated with no period! Waiting for AF, if none by Friday going in on Monday again, which will be day 62. 

 

Hope everyone is happy that the holidays are near! Cheering for those that need it. Hugs for those that need it!

Thanks ladies. Beta today was down from 228 to 218. So, third loss confirmed.

So sorry, SKJ. AFM- Transfer went very well. We had a gorgeous embryo we transferred and another that was almost as gorgeous that will be frozen. We have one more that is definitely being frozen and another they are watching. Currently lying in bed, about to nap.

So, the 3rd one we were watching would have been a nice blast for a fresh cycle, but wasn't at the quality. They like for freezing. 2 is sti ll really good and definitely enough for a future FET.

Hi Everyone-- poking my head in. We have been NTNP (due to DH's not being able to finish under pressure, we can't time our BDs very easily) since August of last year. I got pregnant in May and lost it around 8 weeks. Other than that, no pregnancies and no signs that either of us have a medical condition.

 

One doctor thought my thyroid was off but further testing showed it to be normal. Hormone levels are normal. My cycles are regular and temping leads me to believe that I am ovulating. DH is very healthy too, but hasn't been tested for sperm quality or quantity. I have an ultrasound scheduled soon since my sisters have PCOS-- no symptoms for me but they said it was best to check my ovaries since it runs in the family.

 

We tend to BD about once a week so we miss ovulation pretty regularly. I hope the reason we are not getting pregnant is that simple. Since I was pregnant in May we aren't technically dealing with infertility, but the months are dragging by and the lost baby's due date is coming up and I am incredibly sad. I am 32 and DH is 34.

Did thedoc che k T3 and T4 in addition to TSH? Tsh alone doesnot usually give a clear picture.

I've heard that too.. I did not see the results of the most recent workup but the nurse said it was a full thyroid panel. I will be sure to ask when I go in for the US. Honestly my symptoms are not too bad... I am on the heavy side, kind of slow moving, low blood pressure, dry skin and hair, but almost all of that runs in the family. Plus I have textured hair-- that's just dry in general.

lilag...   inter-uterine-insemination. It's artificial insemination where the sperm is placed near the cervix in the vagina.

 

 

Ooops... Yeah, it's also where washed sperm is injected into the uterus. The term is used so much for the cervical procedure that I tend to forget about the procedure the name originally referred to.

With IUI A catheter is actually run through the cervix so that washed semen are placed in the uterus closer to the fallopian tubes. It bypasses the cervix to take cervical fluid out of the equation and give more sperm a chance to meet the egg.

Sending out Hugs to those who need them this week! I am in a state of numbness right now so i probably won't have time for much.

 

AF showed up this morning as soon as I woke up at 530.  So we are out.  DH is still saying he doesn't know if he wants us to do medicated cycles again so I'm going to just work on losing the weight that I want to lose and see if that will help with my PCOS since nothing else seems to be able to explain my PCOS.    I will still be here to encourage everyone and i'm praying that everyone here is able to have the babies they dream of each night soon!  Love all of you ladies!


Brandy(28) mommy to Jayde (12/14/03) and Emma Mattilynn-Gail born 12/06/10 and Loving wife to DH (32)! TTC#3 since April 2011! Missing our little angel.gifs that we lost so early 7/11 & 11/11! Praying to get our rainbow1284.gif babyf.gifsoon!

TeamViddy - Can you chart "secretly"?  I know that sounds bad but if your DH had troubles under pressure, is there a way that you could make it so that he doesn't know it's O time?  I know it's not that simple but just an idea...

 

AFM - Nada.  Just hangin' out.  I turn 30 on Thursday and expect AF shortly after.  Won't that be a nice birthday present? wink1.gif

Hugs PlaneGreen. AFM- No vomiting so far today, but definitely some nausea. I vomited twice yesterday (I'm sure you all needed to know that). I found out why though. My progesterone was 54.3 today. The nurse said my number is awesome and she's feeling positive vibes for me. I looked and my number with the boys at 7 weeks was less than double that. Granted, I was doing vagina progesterone support, not IM but it is still very promising.
