@smcopp89:  Welcome to the group! I see that we both got married in Oct 2012 and both started TTC in Jan 2013. I hate that you have to be here, but you’ll find that you’re in great company. I hope your stay is short and sweet!

@HopefulForLittleOne:  The painting class at the bar sounds so much fun. There is one in the county we live in, only about 15-20 minutes from our house, but you bring your own beverage. I don’t have an artistic bone in my body, but Chris on the other hand, does, and it great. But I would love to do something like that with him. I will be praying for your upcoming FET.

@MrsMonty11:  Thank you for thinking of me! I silently checked the bee on my break and was so happy to see that you and your DH had started TTC again. I hope you won’t even need your appt this month, but if you do, I hope the doctor has a great plan moving forward. Your dog is so cute. I love the pic of him in the chair.

@hardtoconcentrate:  Chris and I have butt heads on ‘the time’ it’s taken to get pregnant. He thinks that everything is fine and dandy and it’s just normal for it to take this long. I know I ‘was pregnant’ but honestly don’t even want to count it since my body didn’t even know, and I got AF the same exact day it was supposed to arrive. I occassionally silently read along during my break from the bee, and was so saddened to read about your diagnosis, but it’s great that you have a new plan to get your BFP. ETA: glad to see that you have your appt scheduled! FX that this is what you need for your BFP!!!

Not much going on with me, except Chris added me to his health insurance this year. Even though we’ve been married over a year, I still haven’t changed my name, and am still on my parents insurance, which doesn’t cover anything pregnancy related or fertility services. I had to complete a health assessment and while I was on the website I went ahead and looked at some of what the insurance covers. It covers a $30,000 (lifetime) for fertility services. Though this isn’t a lot if someone needs IVF, but I know that is A LOT compared to what other companies pay, and feel so blessed that I know have coverage if in fact there is something wrong.

@wandering_gypsy: I think you should definitely push to have the blood tests ordered and go from there. Sorry I don’t have much advice, I know very little when it comes to the MF side of things.

@wandering_gypsy:  I’m happy there’s no tumor.  But that sucks that your doc doesn’t know where to go from here.  I think asking the urologist whether you should go to an endocrinologist Would be a good idea.  I hope you get out of limbo soon.

So I had my IUI this afternoon.  DH had awesome numbers, 68mil post wash with 95% motility!  I go in tomorrow morning to check that my follie ruptured!  I’m really hopefull for this cycle.  Wish me luck!

I know you will make the best decision for YOU and that good news will come your way soon (it’s bound too, you’ve had your share of crappy news). Tee Hee! about posting the wrong age. My sister aged me a few years on a FB post I had to remind her that she is 6 years older then I am therefore really aging her if we went by her post!

I must admit my first response to reading about the deductable cost was “Oh no! that takes away from fertility treatment costs…” I know you will find a way to make things work but Ihope your natural miracle pops up soon.

Age (if you care to share): 32 (holding onto that for a few more weeks) DH 36

 

TTC since: July 2011 This is cycle 32 (It is ridiculous how long my excel spreadsheet tracking cycles is getting!)

 

Issues (if any): Frustrating Unexplained Infertility – All tests have come out well with both of us

 

Chart?: Nope – I feel like a lazy TTCer but I work shift work, makes it difficult

 

Currently: CD 11 Cycle 32

 

Supplements/how are you going about your BFP: Taking a break from supplements and only taking my prenatal (Geesh, you’d think after 2 1/2 years on a prenatal I would have beautiful hair and nails, but nada, nothing)

 

When I get my BFP, I’ll celebrate by: Unimaginable at this point

 

If it’s not this cycle, we’ll: Doubtful it will be this cycle or next but still keeping fingers crossed. Due to clinic closures over the holidays we missed CD 1 and were unable to get a baseline ultrasound so no interventions this cycle. We will be on vacation next cycle around O date so again no help. However once we return (end Feb) we will do our 5th IUI (first injectable cycle, first monitored cycle) 

 

Since TTC after 12+ cycles (or with IF) issues, is a very different experience than a fertile couple trying in the first month, how do you stay connected to your SO?

 

 HopefulForLittleOne this is a great question. I think a lot of people have no idea how infertility, and the sadness, emotional turmoil, fear, and (possible) resentment, connected with it can strain a relationship, not only do we have to work harder at TTC but we have to work harder to maintain our relationships during this time. Some of you know DH and I went through a HORRIBLE time this past spring and were near our breaking point (partially due to Mother-In-Law staying with us) (thankfully this board held me off the ledge during that time – extra hugs to HopefulForLittleOne  @Yellow.Clover: and nyckitten for being so supportive to me and helping me through it by reassuring me my emotions/thoughts were valid) DH and I have worked hard and continue to do so by making the most of our time together by doing little things and starting new silly traditions like coffee on the treadmill (we work opposite shifts and rarely see each other so time is limited)We’ve had to make sure to not spend all of our time talking about TTC and scheduling but yet still allow time (mostly for me) to have my monthly pity party before dusting myself off to face a new cycle and remind each other that we will be the best parents we can be.  Hmmm am I the only one that didn’t write about not making sex all about baby making? huh, guess that’s because ours is still pretty dedicated to that! Too Much Information but DH wanted to put his “stuff” elsewhere and I yelled “No! it has a home, and its not there!” We have had to be very scheduled and short on time (I’ve made him come home for record quick quickies during the fertile window Wink)

 

 Just for fun…What hobbies/activities do you do to give yourself a break from TTC or just for fun? I fall into the boring old lady catagory. I recently taught myself how to crochet a baby beanie (thanks youtube) what a dumb idea how many damn beanies can my imaginary child wear! I scrapbook and travel at least once every winter.

Sorry for the verbal diarrhea today. Oh and new ladies, you’ll hopefully get use to my over use of the exclamation mark – I’m just so damned excited all the time! (insert sarcasm) sorry hope its not annoying…

@lonsk:  haha I didn’t notice all the exclamations points until you pointed it out! Now that’s all I am gonna see when you post πŸ™‚ 

 

Thanks for the welcome. I completely laughed out loud when I read “it has a home and it’s not there” and DH gave me a weird look πŸ™‚ I can’t be bothered explaining thou cos he’ll think I am weird πŸ™‚ I think the same thing though – I am very much of the unless I am 100% sure I’ve ovulated (or I am on AF) you ain’t depositing anywhere else hehe. I’m sorry you’ve been here so long – unexplained is my biggest fear (prob why I am avoiding the Dr too) because as shitty as it is if something is wrong at least I have some semblance of a chance of changing it! … Maybe… πŸ™‚

@hardtoconcentrate:  funny enough they both just sat there posing and let me take the photo – I laugh because they did look at me like “wth are you doing?” πŸ™‚ usually they run away so all the photos are of their butts or they have a still body and a blurry head hehe

@Yellow.Clover:  yeah i’m a little sorry I made it here – i was going to wait until cycle 14 or 15 but after having some free time and therefore lurking time I realised how supportive and nice you all were over here πŸ™‚ I can’t believe someone is selling positive tests with the idea that people can use them to trap a guy – that’s horrible! i must admit it makes me sick that people like that CAN get pregnant and here I (we all) sit not able to. Guess we just know thou WHEN it happens for all of us we will be MUCH BETTER parents than some of these crazies.

@wandering_gypsy:  I am happy that’s it not a tumour that must be such a relief. What you have written makes so much sense to me thou – if factors (ie painkiller) can raise the levels slightly and a he was subjected to a few factors surely all those slight rises add up to a bigger rise than “normal”. That said I don’t know just in my head I read that and was like “yeah that sounds so logical” hehe

@lindsayandchris09:  thanks for the welcome! My 2 kitties ARE adorable and this comes from a dog lover πŸ™‚ I actually hand raised them from 2 weeks old (they were abandoned in a friends yard) so I fell in love and may be biased thou πŸ™‚

@Yellow.Clover:  I am definitely going to push a 2nd round of blood tests, if nothing else it will be good to see if anything has changed after another month of him not drinking.  If only the doctor would call me back. Frown

@ShellVee:  I’m glad I’m not the only one who at least thinks it sounds logical!  I mean, I’m no doctor and I know not everything on the internet is true… But when multiple sources all have the same information it’s more reliable.

Well, now that I know what I want us to do (I asked DH and he’s game for anything) it seems I can’t get the doctor to call us back.  So, that’s fun. Yell  And to top it off, since AF is due any day now and I haven’t been spotting I took a test today and it was negative. So I’m pmsing like crazy, sad because I’m not pregnant and our doctor is avoiding us.  It’s a great day. Frown

@lonsk:  Your “No! It has a home!” made me laugh.  DH and I have had similar conversations or times when he wanted other types of foreplay (ahem, oral) and I was like, “No! Don’t you remember saliva kills sperm?!” Super sexy in the moment.  What can I say, I guess our sex life is pretty much all TTC at this point, too.

@lindsayandchris09:  Ahhhh, what I would do for $30k of insurance coverage.  Our lifetime max is $5k.  FIVE THOUSAND.  Seriously, does that even cover anything??  Ha, sorry for the vent, apparently you hit a nerve. πŸ˜‰  I really hope it’s all a moot point for you and you don’t need any of it.

So I went in for my scan this morning to see if my follie ruptured…and it’s still there Frown.  The tech said it’s a 50/50 chance I ovulated because the edges are fuzzy which mean it might have ruptured or it is in the process of rupturing.

I’m confused about whether this means that the IUI yesterday was pointless.  She said it’s “possible” that it will still work…which doesn’t produce much confidence.  Anyways, I’m trying to stay positive.  We BD last night and I’m jumping DH as soon as he walks through the door (per the tech’s orders).  She actually wanted us to meet sometime during the day!  Hello Afternoon Delight…but alas, DH works an hour away from where I work.  I think we’ll also BD tomorrow and Saturday for good measure.  Can’t Hurt!

@lindsayandchris09:  That is amazing coverage! We have friends who have been trying for 4 years and last year, she switched to his insurance because it covers up to $10k in fertility treatments! And we thought that was amazing! Unfortunately, it raised their premiums a lot and they have done 4 unsuccessfuly IVF cycles, so they have far surpassed that $10k, but anything is better than nothing! 

While we are just starting our journey with the specialist, we have already had many discussions about our path and are prepared to have to go through IVF. My husband is in the navy, so we have Tricare, which covers $0 for anything related to “noncoital reproductive technologies.” They do cover diagnostic testing and “corrective surgeries,” so thankfully my anticipated laprascopy will be covered….but after that, we are on our own. We are fortunate that we both have good jobs and savings and are prepared to pay out of pocket for IVF, but it is still frustrating that something that should be so “natural” is going to cost us so much!
