So much to catch up on! 🙂 13dpiui here. Will test again Friday morning. Hubby and I are ready to move forward with IVF if this month doesn’t stick. It sounds like there could be a good number of us moving to IVF in the coming months. Though I wish it was easier for us all, I’m glad we’ll all be able to support one another as we get to this next step.
I’m sorry AF showed, but glad you have an answer. You still have lots to look forward to in the upcoming months, and hopefully you’ll be so exceedingly happy getting ready for the wedding that you’ll both be ok waiting a little longer for a new addition to the family.
Congrats – that’s awesome! Sounds like you’ve got WW down. Hopefully the weight loss gets your body working perfectly without more meds!
Glad you had such an wonderful trip! It’s so hard for me to completely get my head out of TTC, but it’s such a nice break when I can – glad you and hubby were able to completely relax and forget about it all. Sorry about your pup, but glad to hear he’s doing so much better. And that key lime pie looks divine! I used to make key lime pie with my dad every 4th of July – maybe it’s time to revive the tradition 🙂
So sorry about your miscarriage. I’ve taken letrozole/femara the last three months in conjunction with IUI, and had a pretty great experience with it. Obv, I’m not pg though. The letrozole didn’t give me any side effects, which is nice. First month I took 2.5 mg and got 1 follicle around day 17. The second and third months, they upped my dosage to 5 mg and I got 2 follicles ready around day 12, so a pretty big difference. My lining has always been great – I think around 9-10 mm? If this month doesn’t work we are hoping to move straight to IVF, rather than doing IVF with injectables. Since I respond well to the meds and produce good numbers of follicles and good lining, just increasing the number of eggs with injectable probably won’t cause a different result for us. But we have to talk it all out with the dr.
Glad you had a good 4th! I feel like I can’t go anywhere sometimes, especially around holidays, w/o seeing babies and pregnant women everywhere. Hopefully next year it’ll be us. Good luck with the Acu! I LOVE IT 🙂
Sorry you’re struggling. I’ve looked for in person IF support groups around here, but can’t find any. The local hospitals seem to have support groups for EVERYTHING under the sun, except IF. DH and I have discussed that moving to IVF more quickly is as much a decision for our emotional wellbeing, as for physical or financial factors. We have the means to do it, and are just ready to move forward with something with better odds. Sure there’s a chance that something less complicated or cheaper might help if we try 2, 5, 10 more times, but for us, it’s not worth the anguish of being stuck in limbo even longer.
Thank you so much!!!
