Sienna I’m so sorry I missed your news back there. Congratulations! Have you had a second beta? How are you feeling? You’re probably excited but scared? Fx for a smooth, boring 9 months! Xx

Ohh very very exciting. It’s about time. You’ve been very patient, it is your turn!
I’m excited to hear about your scan.
We’re extremely busy. I went back to work in Jan (compressed work week mon-thurs) and loving the balance. The girls’ nannies just gave us notice that they’re both off to uni in the autumn so we started looking at the long wait lists for daycares. We jumped on it when we got an offer Monday from an accredited center just up the street from us for placement of all 3 girls. So I’ll have the option to grocery shop & get things done if I want on my Fridays off. In the mean time we bought a massive outdoor play set that takes 16 hours for 2 people to set up, 114 page set up manual my work colleague calls it a 2 hour divorce.
Other than that it’s warming up here and the knee deep snow has melted over the past week. Sunny days are here again!

This is It


Well ladies, my IVF Days are over. And really TTC as well. Like making a point to do so. So now hanging onto my 5% chance of having a natural child. I am 29 yrs.

So we are now in the pursument of International Adoption from Thailand. We have already started the process and hopefully in 2 2 1/2 yrs we will have a child home.

So I came on here again because this was the best place to ask my questions about hormones.

I went to my doctor because I thought I may be lacking in hormones thought i was heading towards pre menopause because my cycle was getting shorter and shorter af lengths. I was diagnosed with low ovarian reserve at 21. And I wa told I could hit prenopause by 30. So I got my hormones tested.

My LMP was May 26th- 4 Days, 2 light and 2 med.
I tested on June 11th which was CD 17. So this would put me just ending in the mid cycle portion of the cycle. So by if i was day 16, my numbers is considered low. But Day 17, the numbers that are low is the "normal numbers" I asked, do the numbers drop down that fast, and yup. So by one day its kind of wishy washy. I still consider it low because it was only by 1 day. I say I was low through out the mid cycle. So here are the numbers for Day 17.

The 4 Cycles are: Follicular
Mid Cycle:
Luteal:
Post Menopausal


Estradol: Mid Cycle: 206, Normal is 550-1950.

Progesterone: Entering the Luteal Phase: 23.1, Normal 15-90

LH: Mid Cycle: 5.3, Normal 15-90, Really low because the Follicular Stage, Meaning the beginning the normal number is <15. So according to this number I am reading the Follicular stage numbers and not even reading the numbers that its supposed to be in the mid cycle stage.

FSH: Mid Cycle 5.7, Normal 4-15. In the range but not much.

I hope someone here understands.

Hi SKP, understanding hormone levels are 1/4of the battle. As we age we’re very very likely to have immune issues that prevent implantation with even the most inviting wombs and best embryos. Our fertility clinic will never broach this subject because they are not educated in reproductive immunology. You could work out your exact perfect days, and most fertile period and still not have anything implant because we have a much higher immune response as we get older. Natural killer cells, clotting (antiphospholipid antibodies is prevelent in women approaching and in early 30’s.) but you know that many of us who were tested & treated for immune issues got lucky enough to conceive. The other major issue that go against us is weight. There are a huge amount of studies showing that the more weight we have the higher the failure (sometimes to implant, sometimes to carry). Not sure about you but this effects so many women, and there are so many things that any extra weight effects, it’s a tough one to resolve. Don’t beat yourself up with hormone levels. Just keep trying and maybe use a good fertility monitor. All the best with your adoption, how come you chose not to go local?
