well, we got the no go on dp's tsh level, so we are on hold. it's all the way down into hyperthyroid territory, although dp isn't exhibiting any of those symptoms. <sigh> once again, we are dealing with an incompetent dr (her endo). she'll be calling him today and explaining why our re has now prescribed a lower dosage of synthroid - which dp is picking up tonight to start tomorrow. we'll have her tsh tested again in 3 weeks time and if it's ok we'll be set for february. otherwise, it's adjust the dosage and test again. the shg is still set for next friday to check on the polyp - i hope to god we get good news from that!!

papa, sorry we won't be tww buddies again. i fully expect you to get a bfp in our absence.

carmen, the signs and symptoms of pcos are multiple cysts on the ovaries - at yesterday's scan dp had ~12 basal follicle count on each ovary and they were in a "string of pearls" formation along the outside edge, hirsutism, overweight and not able to lose it, not ovulating, really long cycles, history of unexplained miscarriage, lh to fsh ratio 2:1, higher than normal dheas, testosterone and andro. of those, dp has the ovary thing and longer than normal cycles. so if she does have pcos, it's a mild version. my understanding is that the blood test they are doing checks for insulin resistance and if that comes back positive, dp will take the glucophage (metformin) to regulate. we know she ovulates and the few months when she didn't we believe were due to her hypothyroidism. that's now under control - the 2 cycles after the synthroid got her levels back to normal she did ovulate and last month on try #1 she had 2 mature follicles.

we certainly have a lot of challenges but our re is confident she can get us pregnant.

in other news, we switched backup donors! i found another one who was more like our son's donor and we're in the process of exchanging plus we bought another couple of iuis.

a few updates - the remainder of dp's tests came back normal so they will have her start taking glucophage now - the idea being that it helps prevent m/c in pcos patients. we'll see if it improves her ovulation any. they are also going to fax her endo and explain the dosage change.

i emailed our bank and asked for the stats on backup donor - holy cow! 128mil count, 39% motility and 3.5 progression!! looks like we managed to pick a winner, lol! (it was nice to have SOME good news today).

pookafaye, i forgot to comment on your results - my dp also has auto-immune issues but her's is hashimoto's thyroiditis. it seems that they are able to treat most of those as far as ttc goes, so good luck with that! do any of your family members have auto-immune issues? dp's mom and sister have ra and her dad has diabetes.

how is everyone else doing today?

Indigo - what's up with the back up donor? How many more vials do you guys have left of your first donor?

Those are *great* numbers, but hopefully it won't come to that.

I'm angry at the world today, bleeding, sad, and alone, and feeling sorry for myself.

Oh, and I just started maca yesterday - it's supposed to be the greatest fertility super food. And you know how I love my supplements.

I'm thinking about acupuncture, too, I just have to look into insurance coverage.

I'm sad, this was my seventh cycle, all told, and my first insemination was nearly two years ago. If I'd gotten pregnant that first time, or stayed pregnant, because I'm pretty sure I conceived, my kid would be over a year old now. I tried to explain how this is painful to a so-called friend, who said "That's not that long..." It actually is. It feels like forever.

papa, we have the backup donor in case we can't get pregnant with our son's donor. after the fiasco at our clinic last month, we're out of iui vials and have 6 ici vials left. those are 56 mil count, 40% motility, 2.5 progression. the re can spin them to iui though to give us a better chance. but that's only 3 tries and we already know dp has a lot of fertility issues! while we really want a 1/2 sibling we decided that it would not be a show-stopper - a baby is a baby after all, and he or she will be a brother or sister to our son irrespective of genetics.

i'm sorry you feel so down, alone and dealing with af in all her nasty glory. if i was up there we could go drown your sorrows in some quality single malt. lol!

what is maca? sounds like paul mccartney to me, lol!

dp is back to her acupuncturist tomorrow and will continue once a week until we get the ok to get back on the ttc wagon.

in my experience, it's hard to talk about ttc with other folks who aren't part of this community, you know? we found out today that one of the moms at our son's daycare is pregnant with #2 and due in july. she asked about us - we haven't made a secret that 2009 is the year of baby #2 - and i had to explain about going to see the specialist. as dp said later, it must be nice to have sperm "on tap".

afu, dp is on a lower dose of synthroid and started glucophage today. we'll see how her cycle does this month - since it started out hyperthyroid i'm not sure if she'll ovulate or not.

Thanks, Indigo.

Yeah, the sperm on tap thing makes it easier, from what I can see.

I know 3 straight couples who have kids under a year, none of them were conceived after trying, they just "let it happen."

Maca is a vegetable that's native to Peru, kind of like a radish. I bought some maca that's been dehydrated and powdered and otherwise processed, it's supposed to be good for all that ails you, male or female, for fertility stuff, including PCOS. You're supposed to take either pills or 2 tbsp/day of the powder, mixed in food like a smoothie or something. I've tried it in chocolate milk, it was Ok, but it tastes nasty in my smoothies, so I'm taking chocolate milk medicine from now on.

Papa. I'm sorry you're having such a rough time of it. I can't wait for you to be a real life Papa. It does feel like you've been trying forever, and I'm so sorry that this hasn't happened more easily for you. Of course, that doesn't at all mean that it's not going to happen. I feel certain that it WILL happen.

And, I wanted to point out that you can get FREE acupuncture at Health Services! I haven't been, but I hear it's great, and it's definitely on my to-do list.

Oh how I hear you on how LONG this is taking! This Christmas I kept feeling angry that we were supposed to have a 1.5 year old with us (if the first pregnancy hadn't been a miscarriage). Then I would follow that with anger that Katie was supposed to be 4 months pregnant but that wasn't the case either.

Many days I can be either zen or blah about how long it's taking, but sometimes I feel enraged. Especially when I see folks who are on baby #2 since we started trying. Or who are pregnant, etc. Too too hard.

So I feel you completely.

Many hugs,
megin

I haven't been trying as long as some of you but I am also struggling with staying afloat emotionally. I would be 7 months pregnant if my first pregnancy hadn't ended in m/c. The fact that I could have been giving birth in 2 months just seems so far away We've tried 4 times, starting in April 2008. KD is still nowhere to be found and I'm so done speculating and am trying not to think about it. And, I'm questioning if I even O'd this past cycle as my temps (and FF) don't seem to be very convincing. I started charting in Nov. 2007 and other than the cycle after my first m/c, I have always O'd. So far, we haven't had any doctor intervention other than blood tests and that awful trip to the ER when they thought I was ectopic. I feel like starting down that road would just put us back so far emotionally and timing too. I turned 38 in December and we were really hoping to have 2 kids (I would prefer 4 but hey, can't be greedy!) but I feel my time is running out!

I'm sorry so many of us are feeling dumpy - but I'm glad I'm not alone. I'm mad at the world lately - hopefully because AF is coming. My contract with the sperm bank expired, so that was a painful reminder of how long we've been at it. I really hope to get pregnant again soon, but am terrified of miscarrying again.

Also I'm really discouraged about trying to manage my PCOS. I joined the gym a couple months ago and have been working out 2 hours a day/6 days a week for almost three months and have lost a whopping 2 pounds.

Anyway, that's the end of my pity party. For now.

I have so much sympathy for everyone who has been struggling for so long. It's actually making me overwhelmed before I've even had my first try.


To answer Indigo's question, there's some rheumatoid arthritis in the family but my other symptoms don't seem to line up with that. I'm really glad I don't have to put off TTC while we get more results.

We met our RA on Thurs and we -really- like here She insisted that I shouldn't have anything to worry about and we've scheduled various preliminary tests so that we can try next cycle..

So I'm starting to get impatient with my ovulation tracking. At first it was complicated by loosing my thermometer and having to buy a new one. Then I discovered that the new one doesn't store your temp for the next time you turn it on and constantly displays 97.7 which gave me a few days of bad data. Now though I should be done ovulating Fri but my temp hasn't risen much, there was still ferning in my saliva, and I had a relatively positive OPK yesterday. I'll check my saliva again today and poas stick too. Hopefully the signs will be more clear but I worry that my O will be hard to pin down and we'll time things poorly. Any thoughts on my :?

I hope everyone is feeling more positive today

Hello again!
We missed out on trying this cycle
Our KD had two of his dogs have puppies back to back (17 total!) and between that and me working overtime, we didn't get to meet up. It sucks but we always have next month... right? If we get pregnant this time around, we'd be finding out right around my birthday and that would be AWESOME!
We are still "waiting to o" although I'm really waiting to bleed then o but it's all the same I guess.

Good luck everyone!

I miscarried today at five weeks. The BFP had finally sunk in and (7 positive tests later) we had just made our first appt with the OB. Tomorrow I'll cancel it.

I wish I had better news. Please move us back to waiting to O.

Oh, I'm so very sorry for your loss. I hope there's some comfort in how quickly you got pregnant previously. I'm convinced it will happen quickly and smoothly when you're ready to try again *big hugs* Warmest thoughts to you and yours.

i've updated the first page and it seems no one is in the tww right now, please correct me if that's wrong.

dp is 3 days into taking metformin and aside from a few stomach cramps is tolerating it well. last night she had some left ovary cramping - we're only on cd7 today so it's too early for ovulation, although i guess it could be a follicle growing! i read an interesting article last night that said women with thyroid issues, specifically auto-immune are four times more likely to have pcos! i guess dp just got the short straw. it makes me even more relieved that we switched to the re!

Based on your chart, I'd say you did indeed O on CD22. Some people's temps rise really abruptly after O but sometimes it's more gradual. That's how it often is for me. I get one slightly higher and then it goes up again and again. You will likely start to see a trend after a few cycles and that may just be normal for you. Then again, I hope you don't have to chart for very long and can catch it asap.

My insurance sucks....4 ultrasounds at 380 a pop not to mention the menopur and ganirelix and labs .....on a happy note I will be inseminated on thursday with the lone vial as I call it : I hope my follicles can get up to at least 19mm by then, they are 16mm today and I have to get 2 more vials of menopur and the trigger after work and its a blizzard outside:

scalpel, best of luck with your lone vial, i really hope it works for you!!!! and i hope the weather co-operated so you got your meds.

dp reported pre-ewcm last night and we are only on cd7/8! i wonder if the metformin is working already? surely it's too early for that! we won't be poas for the cbem until probably thursday so there's no way of knowing what status her fertility is until then. ever the optimist, i hope it's a good sign. my af started last night - my first 26 day cycle in forever!

Scalpel,much luck! May you not have to pay for TTC ultrasounds again!

I'm hanging around twiddling thumbs, etc. waiting for my period to start. Should be in the next day or two. I'm debating whether to start taking Vitex again. I took it for a couple months last Spring, and while it did give me nice 28 day cycles, I still ovulated on CD19-22! So the whole point of hopefully lengthening my LP was negated. My "average" LP, according to FertilityFriend, is 10 days, which concerns me. But while I hadn't been temping well (at all) the past few months, my cycles have been longer of late, and I'm pretty sure I've still be o'ing around CD20. I got my fertility lens in the mail yesterday (along with the bulk pack of OPK's) so I'm looking forward to playing with that too.

Living with my DW, ourcat.gifAstrid, my mom and dad, and their dog and cats, too.  Hoping to start TTC with my OSO as baby-daddy soonish!
