@bakerella: Thanks for the new thread!

To everyone else- thanks for thinking of me!  It wasn’t too scary… I am aching now, though.  My doc said that things were kind of hiding, so they had to dig around quite a bit to make sure they got everything, which is why I’m in pain, but I ended up with 13 eggs.  I’ll find out tomorrow how many turned into zygotes, and then hopefully I’ll transfer on Monday.  I had been hoping for MerryC’s fabulous numbers, but I suppose all I need is one!  πŸ™‚

@Jenn- So glad that you feel that doing the IVF is the right thing AND the timing works out!  Do you have a general idea about when you would do retrieval and transfer?

@squeak- so sorry to hear about the puppy… hope he feels better soon!

@jaguar- I’m so sorry that this RE hunt continues to cause you grief… this is the last thing you need!  I’m sending good thoughts your way.

@meganmp1: Squee! I have everything crossed for you, my dear. So exciting!

So… I finally have some news.

I went to see my original GP {the one who stalled me for months before giving me a referral to the current RE} because… I want out. I want a new referral, to a new RE that I’ve found myself, who works in a specialised fertility CENTRE.

I knew I’d have a fight on my hands and I was right – she was continually questioning why I need to change so early on in my course of treatment, despite me telling her that I’m doing Clomid unmonitored, have had ____ many months of no ovulation, the last THREE blood tests showing that things aren’t working, and that he didn’t bother to re-book me for an appointment anytime in 2012. She kept telling me to stick it out and I put my big girl pants on and told her that this is what we want, thanks.

I have a referral for me & hubby for our new specialist – and we’re booked in with this new RE on 2/2! 

(Yes, it’s a full month from now – but it’s progress!)

I’ve decided to start the progesterone today at CD26 to end this failed cycle anyway, so I’ll have one more shot at Clomid before the new RE vist. I’m debating whether I do the 75mg crappy-RE wanted me to do, or if I bite the bullet and do 100mg. Nothing has worked so far.

@jaguar:  I AM SO PROUD OF YOU! I know how hard it is to speak up for what you want to a doctor, and you did it. I don’t know if I could have! So glad that you get to see a new RE, even though the visit is a month away. About the clomid — I guess I don’t understand how you can choose whether to do 75mgs or 100mgs? The way it works in the US we have to get prescriptions and they’ll only give us the amount the doctor says.

@Mrs. Bonnie Blue: Thank you so much!

@bunny: Well, because old-RE is hopeless, he gave me a generic script and a really rough ‘if this doesn’t work, up to 75mg’ .. so yep, I have enough to do either that or 100mg for this final one. πŸ™‚

@jaguar: You go Gurl!!!  I cant believe your GP told you too put on your Big Girl pants.  Really Lady.  The RE is charging me through the roof when I’m getting the service level of an online provider.  I’m glad you didn’t back down and you have an appt in Feb.  The days will fly by.

My advice is to take the 100 or skip this cycle and begin anew w/ your new RE.

@meganmp1: I had to take Mr. Brownie to the vet.  I slept 2 hrs last night cause I thought he wasnt going to make it.  His cough is horrendeous and I’m pissed they rushed for me to take him hm.  Well, I couldn’t have him stay a day longer.Even though he’s a Baddie and I just found his latest dumping spot.

 Well Ladies, I’m TTW.  Hoping all of our BD did the trick cause Darling Husband doesnt like how I hold him to our marriage contract.  Rain, shine, sleet or snow, its time too get BUSY.LOL

@jaguar: I am so proud of you too!  It’s so difficult really speaking up in those situations especially when someone is fighting against you but you did it!  I see lots of ovulating in your future : )

@meganmp1: 13 eggs is great!!! I’ve actually heard that 10-15 is a good target number, since you get a lot of eggs without too many quality issues and w/o risking bad OHSS!  I hope you get great fertilization!  The day or so after retrieval is the most uncomfortable of the whole process, so hopefully it will pass quickly and the pain won’t be too bad.  Just relax and watch lots of funny tv.  Sending lots of good baby growing juju up to Seattle πŸ™‚

@squeak35: I can’t wait to start fresh! At least I know this time wasn’t wasted – being with slow old RE has meant I’ve at least given the easier options {Clomid} a try before jumping into the big stuff.

@JaneyD: Thank you so much! I’m so pleased I did it today. If I left it too long and over-thought it, I would have wimped out. πŸ˜€

@meganmp1: Yay! 13 eggs is a great number. As MerryC said, that is right in the range of the ideal number of eggs!! Too many and you risk OHSS. I’m so happy for you. Let us know how many fertilized today. I hope all of them did! C’mon Megan’s eggs..do your thing! I’m sorry you are sore and that you have some pain. I hope you are feeling better today.

 

@JaneyD: That’s great you are taking a more relaxed approach this month, too. It does help, doesn’t it? I think the accupuncture really is helping with that, too! I wish I could go every day. If it were significantly cheaper, I would! haha I went for accupuncture last night and felt like a million bucks when I left! πŸ™‚

  

@jaguar: Good for you for standing firm and telling your doctor you want to see a different RE. Sorry you have to wait until 2/2, but at least you now know you are going to see somebody else!! If you could do the 100mg one time, I think that would be great. These lower doses just aren’t working for you. I’m sorry. πŸ™

 

@squeak35: Oh no, poor Brownie. I’m sorry and hope Brownie is feeling better today. I hope the antibiotics work soon! You must be exhausted!! Do you hold up the marriage contract and say, “Right here it says BD when Squeak says to!”? hehe

24 hours from now I’ll be done with my ultrasound and bloodwork and waiting to see if we can start injections. Ahh! I’m excited!

I went to accupuncture last night and it was wonderful. Somehow she hit a blood vessel on my right arm so it was hurting a little and bruised at the end of the treatment. (This was the first time this happened) She apologized profusely and I said, “Oh don’t worry, the amount of needles I’ll be dealing with in a few days for IVF, this is nothing”. LOL
