@mrswannabemomma:  just saw your update, so sorry for your loss bee

 

AFM, I think I am approaching my FW because my LH is finally rising. I am CD16 and I’ve never O’d this late before but I am trying to patient with my body. We went to a wedding last weekend and so many people were pregnant or TTC, it was nice to be surrounded by people in the same stage of life. Besides here, I’ve never really got the chance to talk about TTC or pregnancy with other people because it all happened during the beginning of the pandemic. I am looking forward to have a “normal” pregnancy when the time comes.

@sarfin914:  I’m sorry, that sucks!!! I would be so frustrated too.

 

im just curious, what were you hoping to get out of the Ob appt, since you are seeing an RE soon? Asking because I also have an OB appt coming up before I see an RE and I’m thinking about cancelling.

@sarfin914:  ugh im so sorry to hear your update. The wait for doctors appointments is so frustrating. Especially when you know that it was an error on your part and not yours. The waiting games are endless!! I’ve been on a waitlist with an RE since June so I know your pain. I did get my period back but since wait times are so long, I’m keeping my spot just so I can establish care.

So my clinic called to say bloodwork for this cycle was officially negative (which I already knew). We’ve only done 2 medicated cycles (one without, one with IUI) but they’ve already told me I should move to IVF. I don’t understand. They said I had a great response to the letrozole, my husband has super sperm according to SA and my fertility bloodwork is better now than it was before my daughter – so I don’t get why they’re pushing IVF so hard. Feels like bit of a racket to me. I’m 38 which isn’t young… but there’s hope for me right? I am so discouraged. I feel awful for my daughter if I can’t give her a sibling! This is way way harder emotionally than the first time around (and I still cried almost every day then!)

@tomatotoes:  cry also officially negative, but we’re doing 1 more iui cycle — but i plan on pushing for ivf as I just don’t think iui is working for us!

tomatotoes:  what are your numbers again?  Why were you put on Letrozole and pushed for IUI to begin with again?

@curlygirlp:  My AMH is 3.01 and I don’t know the exact numbers for FSH etc but was told it looked fine. I think the only reason I was put on Letrozole was because I said I’d like to get pregnant quickly since I’m almost 39 – I have no diagnosis and my clinic continually says my numbers look great. Then the clinic mentioned I would have a statistically higher chance of pregnancy if I did IUI so I gave it a try – but Letrozole and IUI weren’t recommended to me for any reason specific to my case. 

 

I talked it over with DH today and I think I need to get off the medicated cycle/clinic route because it’s so stressful to wake up at 5am for bi weekly clinic visits and then come home to my active toddler. My acupuncturist said he could prescribe me herbs if I stopped the medicated cycles so I will give that a try for 6 months to rebuild my health after pregnancy+12 months of nursing. I really believe that’s what helped me get and stay pregnant the first time (after just 6 weeks!) – I guess I was hoping Letrozole would give me a shortcut but after 2 failed cycles I’d rather take my chances with what worked in the past, even if it usually is the slower route. ugh!

 

Good luck to everyone who is still waiitng!!

@tomatotoes:  I feel you on the waking up early and constant monitoring. It honestly is like a job having a baby! We’re at 2 years TTC, 6m with our RE, and I almost wonder if the stress of keeping up with the fertility clinic makes it even harder to have a baby!

@eviegreene:  yep! Had a huge argument with DH over the weekend about how ttc has taken over my life and I never get a chance to do anything “extracurricular” aside from doctors appointments and he couldn’t even explain to me what IUI was when I asked if he was sure he wanted to try it… He took my frustration seriously and is working with me on it but man… I hate how this has taken over our lives.

Tested this morning (10 DPO) and negative, but had what may have been implantation blood or could have been nothing lol we’ll see in a few days I guess!
