- Wedding: June 2013
My appointment was a complete waste of time. Waited over an hour and a half for a 3 minute appointment, to tell them I don’t have stomach or respiratory issues and am a non-smoker. Frustrating! Anyway little disappointed we have a 6-8 week recovery time before we can do an FET. Will be away for 2 weeks in February, so likely not until March 🙁
ETA: Oops, maybe you were referencing the long wait at the clinic today? apparently the doctor was instilling HSG pain on a few ladies and lost track of time
Ahh I’m behind on everyone again but I had to let you know that we got our results! We have TWO healthy embryos!!! Out of the 6 we sent in, 3 were free from my premutation but one of those 3 had a chromosomal deletion of some kind and they strongly suggest that we not transfer it since it’s likely to have other serious health problems. This means we’re on for our FET, probably in January, and in the meantime I’m freaking out! It feels so much more real when you know that they’re healthy and know their gender, they feel like tiny frozen lives instead of just “the embryos”. I’m going to catch up on everyone now but I just had to share, I’m so happy we have some healthy babes to transfer.
MrsdeeB: I’m sorry you found yourself here but I hope your stay is short, welcome!
lonsk: I’m so sorry that your appointment was a waste of your time, they should have done that over the phone instead of making you go for 3 minutes, such an annoyance. I’m so sorry that you won’t be able to start your FET until March, but I’m so jealous of your trip to the Dominican Republic, DH and I love the DR, if not pregnant next year, we’re planning to go next summer.
lonsk: What a total waste, I’d be completely frustrated in your shoes. I wasn’t told to wait 6-8 weeks after my hysteroscopy, are they planning on having to remove something that I missed because I’m so behind?
MrsdeeB: Welcome! It sounds like your DH is making great progress. I would love to see some of your knitting/crochet, I’m so envious of people who can do it well!
Frohike: Of course, cycles always seem to have a way of messing up around the holidays. It’s okay though, like everyone has said CD 2 should be no problem.
MrsBananas: So glad everything went well 🙂
Mrs. Jaguar: I think you and I will be on the same track! I’m thinking we’ll transfer mid January if all the Christmas closures work out well. FX for both of us 🙂
lovekiss: I so hear you on waiting, but it sounds like you’re making really good progress and your clear HSG is wonderful news. I hope both of your next appointments go just as well!
Turtle83: Ugh, every cycle off sucks. Hopefully the time will fly by with all the holidays.
nyckitten: Thanks love, I’m so glad we got good news early though we werent’y expecting it at all. We were actually sleeping in this morning and missed 4 calls from the clinic before we woke up and called back! What is your plan going forward with your healthy frosties?
thesaurus_rex: Major hugs, my DH also works a crazy schedule and it’s really hit or miss on him making it to my appointments. For my first IVF retrieval he actually had to go to work after taking me home and was supposed to do the same with my second retrieval but was able to get out of it. It’s a very difficult road even with the most supportive spouse because you’re ultimately doing so much to your body that can’t be shared. I hope you’re feeling better now and that your DH is able to better support you.
With the removal of the polyp they want to ensure the tissue is healed to accept an embryo
Oh em gee. Am big obsessive google nerd. Sorry!
i have to roll into another post to reply to what’s shakin on the next page, but I did in fact go drop off bloods for testing (FSH, estridol, prolactin), so my job here is done until hubby has his magical moment with a cup at the RE on Monday and then we have a follow up to see where we are.
Snce it is the day before thanksgiving and in the midst of trying to crank out mad amounts of work product before the holiday hit so I could enjoy it with clear conscience, bleeding on command at the lab, and being elbow deep in prepping a massive meal for tomorrow, I’ve been thinkin. Thanksgiving is yes, a celebration of some stuff that doesn’t really jive, but the idea of a day of thanks is good.
since I’m not likely to bring these i things up over dinner conversation, I thought I’d share what I’m thankful for in this area, since I spend so much time stomping my feet and internally complaining that its not fair:
im thankful that I didn’t die of ruptured ectopics like I likely would have 50 years ago.
im thankful that science has a potential shot around this, and while expensive enough to make me suck all the air out of the room and while it will be a sacrifice, it is financially doable for us. 20 years ago, I’m sure it was so cost prohibitive it never would have been an idea. 2 years ago my business wasnt yet over the hump to do this.
im thankful that while I sometimes want to poke my hubs in the eye, he took all of this in stride and is so far managing my tide of crazy well.
im thankful for my one chicken friend IRL that I can have chicken meetings with, and I’m thankful for y’all, whether you are lab chickens too or having different issues. No one else understands. Really.
Anyone else thankful for something they are not planning on sharing over sweet potatoes tomorrow?
And that is so awesome about PGS testing…I debate whether or not to do it but it is amazing what they can tell you About the embies. 2 healthy wee babesicles!
