MrsR4ever: Wow, 9 eggs! Hope you have great blasts!
solnishko1186: Yes, I am frustrated. I will explain below.
JLBB-brooklyn: Really hope this IUI works for you. It sounds like your doctor is looking out for you guys in terms of their recommendation to stockpile the meds. They are expensive I’m sure. Hope any monitoring/appts went well.
RunnerBride13: How did your transfer go today? How are you feeling?
soontobemrs1011: You have a great attitude and a lot of patience. I need to be like that 🙂 Hope you are feeling ok with the injections.
Dreaming13: Wow, how exciting! Hope your IVF consult goes really well. My saline sono experience was different I think-more for diagnostic purposes so they had to use more saline. Seems like the saline sonos for IVF are much easier. Hope it is quick and painless for you. 🙂
MattieK: Thinking of you. Hope that number continues to drop so you can move on quickly.
mrsdanish: So sorry. Hugs to you.
MissCountryGirl727: Hope you can start a new cycle very soon.
AFM a few things have happened. On Tuesday afternoon, Darling Husband and I went for our infectious diseases bloodwork (expired) and myself for my thyroid bloodwork. I haven’t heard anything back yet so hopefully soon. When I went for my bloodwork, the blood tech said to me “Oh, I saw [your doctor], and [another specialist]. I was there for 5 years and it didn’t work. It was nice to know that before we spent more money and for some closure.” I didn’t know what to say. I’ve never had a blood tech mention anything like that. I am going to keep moving forward, but still know there are no guarantees.
Yesterday my parents came up and had lunch with us on their way to see my godmother’s daughter’s baby (he was born premature with Down Syndrome). Darling Husband and I had been the previous weekend and the baby is doing ok. I never knew a little newborn could have a thyroid issue. 🙁 My Dad said to me, “Don’t give up, keep trying. Some people take a long time to get pregnant, it’s not always that people get married and nine months later there is a baby.” So, that made me feel good to have his support.
I spoke with my clinic today and my estrogen went from 129 to 255 so I’m on the same dose. The nurse, said, you are responding, just slowly. Regarding their aggressiveness, all of last year was testing and I couldn’t move forward because I supposedly had a blocked and damaged tube. It was mainly a cancer hospital giving me the run around, losing my MRI disks, not reporting with the other oncologists. It’s only this year that I was given the go ahead by the oncologist to return to the clinic (I was told not to try to conceive), so I think I just need to have more patience.
Because I take other meds that do affect how my ovaries work, I don’t really have a choice in terms of meds and treatments so far. My specialist feels we have not tried long enough (only our 4th cycle). I can’t try Clomid, etc, because they can contribute to depression which I’ve struggled with. My prolactin is also sky high, and I can’t take a lowering med. So I am definetely a different patient than what they’re used to. I want to be pregnant yesterday. 🙂
If the numbers do not look all that great, we will probably not proceed with the IUI.
I will know more tomorrow at monitoring.
Sorry for the novel.
Have a great day, ladies! 🙂
