Age/Partner’s Age: 29 + 6 (almost +7…eep), Hubs is 32…am cougar.
How long have you been together: Since 2008, married since 2012
How long have you been TTC: Welp, we pulled the goalies in March of 2014 and had an immediate and traumatic ectopic pregnancy which defied MTX and ruptured, taking rightie with it. We got off the bench a few months later and had a second ectopic in October and lost leftie. Of course, I thought I just had lazy tubes since there was no visible reason for the ectopics, they were pretty enough, but now am reluctant IVF pro.
Issues: Am tubeless wonder. Also, shamefully low AMH, hashimotos, low vitamin D, about 10-15 lbs of extra miscarriage/ivf weight, poor responder, AMA, out of room on the credit cards because the RE’s got all Visa’a money now, cynicism.
What are your TTC plans for 2015: (fertility meds, supplements, OPKs, BBT charting, NTNP, etc,)
It’s all IVF for me, as I have no tubes. We had one micro flare lupron cycle in February with transfer that was a BFN but we have one lumpy blast frozen from that. From there we decided to do 2 collection cycles to bank for PGS. We did the first one, antagonist cycle with femara, and we have 4 blasts frozen. The next (and last) cycle is starting with baseline on Monday, and we will have (hopefully) retrieval at the end of the month, PGS on everything and (PLEASE!!) transfer a day or two before my birthday.
The Fedex dude just delivered my meds…thank you Mitch Hedberg: “I like the FedEx guy, ’cause he’s a drug dealer and he don’t even know it! And he’s always on time.”
Anything about yourself you want to share:
I’m a total nerd and find myself quoting Captain Picard and/or Fox Mulder almost unconsciously. I can spend a whole day baking with a glass of wine and feel like that was a well spent day. I cannot abide incompetence at the airport-I travel so much I get irrationally short tempered with newbies who apparently have never flown before.
What is the most effective coping tool you have found to get you through this mess?
Wine. Maybe not the healthiest, but that’s the most effective.
