NicLE1218 :  Thanks for starting the October board! 🙂 The earliest I could have my FET is the end of October, so I’m going to go ahead and rollover eventhough my POAS date will probably not be until November (crossing fingers!). I just love hanging with you ladies 😉

I’ll be coming soon! Got a BFN today at 14dpiui. Tomorrow is my beta and then I’ll rollover once AF starts. It was only our first IUI but I’m still super disappointed.

BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): We are going through IVF via donor egg.  This has been a LONG, emotional process.

I can start round 3 of 6 of the medroxy to help build my lining on Sept. 29th and then Iʻll officially roll call once I get that AF figured out 🙂

NicLE1218 :  Iʻm assuming after all 6 rounds sheʻll take a look but I have to call for rounds 4-6 refill, maybe Iʻll ask then.

Cycles TTC: 17

Current CD/DPO: CD 30. Waiting for AF, but beta today was negative so I know it’s coming. 

Usual cycle length: 27 days, but progesterone is making it longer

Ovulation date or procedure (and what kind): TBD-it will be our second medicated IUI

Finally had my appt with my PCP today and got an official referral to our local RE. Thankful for the advice here to go straight to RE and not bother with an OB. She ordered a transvag US to get my testing started and I’m just waiting for them and the RE to call me to get the ball rolling. Also finally got started on an SSRI today. I’ve been struggling with depression and anxiety for the last (well, forever) 1.5 years and didn’t want to start anything when I began TTC – now that almost 2 years have passed, I can’t live like this anymore, and my doctor and I both agreed that if I can’t handle life right now, there’s no way I can make it through infertility / pregnancy / having a child without getting help. TTC is not why I am depressed but it certainly is adding to my mental health issues. Anyways…I am just feeling so much better to finally be initiating treatment for my various ailments.
