I’m also trying to read more. I joined the goodreads website last year and did their reading challenge. I chose 20 books (which I barely completed). This year my goal is 25.
AFM, I’m at 12dpo. AF starts Monday. Dreading doing round 3 of IUI. Just don’t want to be on the meds and don’t want it to fail because then what’s the next step? DH and I decided to take the dogs on a small hike today (about 2 miles), which was nice. I’m hoping we have the dedication to actually make it a regular thing. We said we’d do it weekly like 3 years ago. My hiking boots had spider webs, literally. That’s how long it’s been. But I think it’ll be good. Gets us both out and exercising a bit.
I I survived my family party – just. I had to leave the room when the scan photos were being handed round but kept it together. We’ve not told family what we’re going through – I’m very private and my family are slightly nutty. I have told 2 close friends who are very supportive and my supervisor at work knows it’s going to be soon.
I’d stopped charting my temp because of the added pressure it may give. But this morning I’ve decided to go back to it so that I can be sure of ovulation. It also makes me feel I’m moving forwards and doing something positive.
AFM, spotting has started today. Kinda bummed. I had slight hope that we wouldn’t have to go forward with treatment this month.
AFM, I was excited because it looked like I ovulated on Jan 1. I had a super close to positive OPK on Friday and a temp spike on Saturday so it was looking promising but my temp was back down this morning. I’m hoping it’s just a fallback rise and it goes back up tomorrow. Progesterone test on Wednesday so I guess we’ll find out soon one way or another.
AFM, I go in for the rest of my bloodwork tomorrow and DH and I meet with the RE to get our IVF orders on Tuesday. I’ll roll call after that in hopes of knowing exactly when we’ll start. My gyno did the cycle day 3 blood tests and sent those on to our RE so I haven’t seen them yet. I called the RE last week to make sure they’d gotten everything they needed and a nurse was nice enough to go through them all with me over the phone. It sounds like everything they ran came back within normal limits which was great to hear. I will feel very lucky if it turns out that we’re only dealing with MFI.
Fingers crossed and happy baby dust to you all!
Feist: blech, your sil sounds terrible. To quote a smart lady — I hope she gets a huge butt. 🙂
Mrs. Jaguar: Wow, you sure have been through a lot. It has to be so hard having akk those embryos and feeling like there’s no hope with them. I hope one of then surprised you.
auggiefrog: so exciting! I’m sorry about the extra stress, but glad to hear you’re feeling excited. Have you managed to keep people from accidentally revealing the gender on all those extra ultrasounds?
WillowB: Absolutely! I’ll probably be on it, too, since I tend to have low progesterone and even on clomid spot during the LP. And ugh, how insensitive of your friend. People can be so clueless.
RunnerBride13: No way! Heeeey fellow neuroscientist! I’m going to PM you!
Hi everyone. Glad to see we all made it through the new year and hopefully this year is better for us all. Just had a quick question. It looks like I O’d on CD9 or 10 this cycle. Is that good or bad in terms of my egg quality? I reckon I usually O early in my cycle when not on Clomid, and for some reason this cycle I’m freaking out that it’s too early and my eggs must be bad, which is why we’re not getting pregnant… Falling down the rabbit hole with this one, I guess. I guess when we do get to IVF this will be something I ask my doctor, but seeing as that is months away, I thought I’d ask you lot! So sitting at 2DPO and not happy about it at all.
Hi Ladies!! I’ve been on a much needed TTC break for a couple of cycles now, but I’m hoping to be more active up here soon once we start going back to the Dr. Sending you all love and baby dust!!
Age/Partner’s Age: I will be 32 this month, DH is 31
How long have you been together: 9 years, married for 2 years
How long have you been TTC: 2 years this month, 28 (I think?) cycles
Issues: No known issues. Tubes are clear, hormone levels seem to be fine, I ovulate regularly with 27-28 day cycles. Dr. has mentioned that my usual O on CD17-18 may be causing me to O “overripe” eggs. I’ve had a trigger shot on CD14 + 3 rounds of clomid to produce multiple follicles with no BFP. SA checks out great for DH.
What are your TTC plans for 2015/2016: (fertility meds, supplements, OPKs, BBT charting, NTNP, etc,)
The Clomid cycles really got to me emotionally, so we decided to take a break from the Dr./opks/charting/meds/etc. for a couple of cycles. We will be making an appointment soon and hopefully setting up for an IUI cycle in the near future.
I have suspected that I may have CM issues so we started using Pre-Seed a few months ago, just in case there is an issue there.
Any new years’ resolutions or hopes for 2016?:
Currently, we are just focusing on being healthier. DH and I have both quit smoking 2 months ago. I have quit multiple times in the past 15 years, but I’m trying to make this time the final time. I honestly kind of felt like I’d never really be able to quit unless I was pregnant, and the stress of TTC made it harder to quit, so I’ve been stuck in that loop for the past two years. I have started yoga at home to hopefully help with my back issues and to relieve stress and DH has started going to the gym more and we are making more of an effort to eat better. I didn’t really make a resolution for New Years, basically I am trying to make a lifestyle change to be healthier and to manage my stress better…and of course, hope for a baby!
Just had my follicle tracking. I’ve had quite a few internal scans but this one freaking hurt. Hopefully that means that there were some big follies in there. I’m a little nervous because halfway through the scan the tech asked what my diagnosis is or if any other scans had shown anything. I hope this doesn’t mean she saw a new problem. And of course she wouldn’t tell me any of the measurements so I hope my RE phones soon with the results 🙂
