tulipdazey :  I hope your IUI works! 

 

We are still not sure if we are doing a fresh or a frozen the RE said we can decide after retreival since we are still debating.  It’s really going to depend on how many eggs we get, and if they fertilize.  Since our only factor is male, and we are doing ICSI, I feel great with our chances for a fresh factor!  Darling Husband is a bit more skeptical and is worried and wants to do genetic testing and FET, as well as having a cycle only on meds for lining to be perfect.  I’m not that concerned with all that because fertilization is our problem.  We are going to transfer one. I have high hopes to get a lot of eggs though because my FSH and my AMH are both 5.2 so it seems like it should be good!

Trying anything new this month? Nope, trying to save up for IVF. Lol I guess you could say the new thing I’m doing is spending ALL of my free time making Christmas stockings to sell. Don’t think I’ll make the 30k needed but anything helps right??

larissakay :   tulipdazey :  It has been rough. Our most recent loss was just this past cycle. I am going to try and get in to see someone, hopefully we can get some answers. I’m not sure I could take another loss anytime soon.
