We just had our appointment and all tests (so far) have come back good except my AMH is 10.1 - Low fertilty is 2.2 - 15.6, however I am 35 so the Doc said it was probably because of my age. I have a biopsy scheduled for the 21st of Dec and then hopefully starting BCP for a Joan or Feb IVF cycle.
Miranda 4 is a good number. When do you do the results?
Invivo we will be close I think my transfer will be about 26 Jan by then we will know whether your cycle has worked! Very exciting.
Yes Tina it would be great to have a cycle buddy especially in the terrible two week wait!
Trying to keep busy by finding a perm part time role within my company. Trying to job share with someone. It is not working all the big bosses are boys they just want full time people to work really hard.
I know it would be bad if I get the job to then say a few months later I am going on Mat leave but if I don't secure a role I will be made redundant! Hmm the troubles of life. Also getting pregnant might not happen! So much stress with infertility you just can't plan!
Unlucky, sorry you are having troubles at work. We are having redundancies at the minute I will find out before the 18th December whether or not I will be losing my job. Fingers crossed that it's good news because otherwise the savings that we have for IVF would have to go on bills if I were to lose my job.
Boopin, of course you can join my dear! What's your story?
Ovulation is approaching for me girls, we've got this 1 last shot at a natural cycle and then back to IVF next month
unlucky and Tina I think I'll probably be in the two week wait with u just depends on my cycle. Haven't thought that far ahead. Think the Hysterscopy makes it shorter. Excited to put one in but I really don't know if I can handle the disappointment. But got to be positive about it!! We all do!!
Get the results back around Christmas (hopefully good news) we'll use one of the ones we tested before in Jan. As we've done the genetic testing they know what the genders are. I asked and the Dr said she advises people not to know because then it's too hard if it doesn't work out. But she said of the 3 there is a mix. Obviously Australia doesn't have gender selection here. Honesty don't care I just want to be pregnant.
Beepin - I think that's your 'name' welcome! Yes join in!! And TTC4years - ok whooooaaaa who said that AMH was low. That is not. It's about what I had and I'm 35 too. Some people even a few years younger have 2 or 3!! Someone I read 0.26. So don't believe that! I had great results with IVF. Not pregnant yet - but good egg numbers with pick up! Geez. Yours is very normal - well better because I think a lot of people are lower than u!
With the back to back cycles of drugs (one cancelled then straight into more injections) I can't wait to get my period where I'll miraculous de-bloat.. Ha ha ha ha.. They say to take it easy but I did get back y the gym tonight. Really want to try and lose all this bloat around the belly before they put one in January. So I'm going to be really good around xmas time!
Miranda, you have more willpower than I do being good around Christmas time!! I plan on totally pigging out and drinking enough wine to intoxicate a small country before we take on the IVF again in January. Both myself and DH seriously cut back on alcohol for a couple of months before we did our first transfer and it didn't make a difference so this time around I am going to enjoy myself over the festive period and be merry!
Crazy that you know that within your embryos there are girls and boys! Like you said though we don't really care what the sex is as long as we have our much longed for babies at the end of it all.
Agreed, i cut down with alcohol tried ti eat suoer healthy with my first fet and it did nothing so we are going to Vegas on the 28th of december and then leave for LA on the 4th and come home to australia on the 11th january! So i figure i will get everything out of my system in vegas haha and then back to being good when i get back.. i am hoping to do my fet before i go back to work. As ill be taking progynova while over there to thicken up my lining!
In other news my SIL announce to me she is pregnant today! She is 6 weeks and feel pregnant the first month of coming off the pill! Im happy and excited for her and my brother. And then on the otherside im annoyed that it only took 1 month for them to fall pregnant!.. but i take peace in knowing my bundle of joy is waiting for me in my 2 embies
Ah Cassie I feel your pain. My sister did this to me on my birthday. Sucks!! Hopefully they announced it to u in a way that was sensitive. Unlike my sister! Ahh it was so easy we weren't even trying... Arghhhhh makes my blood boil just thinking about it. Still pretty mad!
Vegas and LA sounds like an awesome holiday. It's so good to get away. Think we might plan a weekend get away before January. Our lives have kind of been on hold for so long - not that long but it feels like it.
Yeah we did the same cut back on alcohol. But never been a big drinker anyway so it didn't really bother me.
Anyway got my period this morning - with a bit of cramping (whoo hoo) so they've booked me in for the Hysterscopy on Monday. No big deal - the drugs they give u are awesome!! Really wanted to get back to body pump tonight at the gym but don't know if I should wait for more of my period so the blood releases from the ovaries.
Miss cassie, your holiday plans sound amazing!! I've never been to America and I am desperate to go. It's my 30th birthday next year and I have hinted to my hubby that I'd love to do a few days in New York. My birthday is right by Christmas time and I imagine New York is beautiful at Christmas.
Miranda, out of curiosity how much did it cost for the genetic testing on the embryos? We only have 1 frozen emby so if it doesn't work in January we will be paying for another fresh cycle and it'd be something that I'd want to look into.
Great news that your period has arrived and you can start planning your tests! Here's to great things to come
I have been cramping pretty strongly over the past 24 hours, combined with EWCM I'd say that ovulation is happening though we can count ourselves out this cycle because my DH has been away on business.
We've only got this one cycle left anyhoo and then on to ICSI again
I'm 36 years old and my DH is turning 38 at the end of this month. I'm a housewife and DH is a Chemical Engineer. We've been TTC for a little over 2 years, have tried just about everything for all natural cycles (Preseed, Softcups, Conceive Plus, FertileCM pills, green tea, grapefruit juice ect) and have had 6 IUIs, all with injectables (Puregon) that all failed and ended in BFNs.
We've been through our 1st IVF (long protocol, ended up with 3 good quality eggs that all fertilised, had 1 embie put back) but sadly it's a CP (just got the news today actually) so expecting to soon get "AF" within the next few days We never got any leter from them so that means my other 2 embies weren't good enough to freeze so starting "from scratch."
I'll be starting IVF #2 in January as we can't start next cycle, both because of the holidays and because the clinic at the hospital I'm going to make you sit out 1 cycle in between IVFs/FETs, no matter if it's a BFN or CP I know I'll be on the short protocol though this time as that's what my RE told me if IVF #1 didn't give us a sticky BFP since I didn't have many eggs on the long protocol (had 3 and they aim for 8-12).
