Hey ladies, mind if I join you? We've been actively TTC for 2 years now (NTNP for about 6 months before that) with nothing to show for it but a possible chemical (which could have been a faulty test). We've had all of the usual tests done but the only issues that came up were a 1cm polyp that was removed in November and MFI which seems to have resolved since my husband's last SA.
I just turned 39 so I'm beyond ready to meet my baby! We're starting IVF in February. I'm super nervous because I've only ever done a monitored IUI cycle before, but I'm also really excited & hopeful too!
So after all this waiting after our failed iui we have a bit more waiting to do. Went for baseline checks this am and they saw either a cyst or follie on left side. Waiting on bw to see what my estrogen levels are, then they will let us know if we starts stims tomorrow or not. So I can't seem to get prego on my own but I can potentially make a follie while on bcp. Good job body. Ugh
secret -- ugh! always something. hope you are able to start stims!!
AFM: I am just tracking ovulation this month so I know when to except AF. As of yesterday (CD 12) I still have not had a pos. It's only my second month after my chemical, so my cycle may still be a bit wonky.
Hi Scooby, good luck next month. The IVF process isn't as scary as it sounds, I found the anxiety of it was way worse than the actual retrieval. Although the wait for the embryos is a killer for sure, so tense.
Good luck secret, hopefully it won't push it even further for you.
Afm second lining check and it looks like it may have gone down? Ugh, I though we were going to be finding out about what day the FET will be and now I have to wait even longer!! Hoping that this still happens this month.
That's a shame my, I didn't even know it could go down but bet you will be all good for next check, when is it? I worry about my lining checks as it takes so long, my first fet it was still only just there after checking 3 measurements, I thought the nurse was going to say no but luckily she didn't as that cycle resulted in dd
secret- Ugh, so frustrating! It always seems to be 3 steps forward 2 steps back with this process, doesn't it?
beneath- thank you! CD12 is pretty early still. FX you get a pos soon so you can get moving
star- Thanks! I'd love to be cycle buddies Have you tried taking an OPK just to get an idea of where you are?
my- Thank you! Wow that's got to be aggravating. Hope they just messed up your first measurement and things are actually going in the right direction! I know there's some stuff you can do to help your lining thicken. One of my friends on here has a whole list of stuff she tried and some or all of it seemed to work for her because she's pregnant after her FET. I know some people swear by pomegranate juice. Good luck!
AFM, I'm about 6DPO today. Super curious how long this cycle will be, because pre-polyp removal cycles were down to 21 days (eek!) but my one post-polyp removal cycle was 27 days. Big difference! If it goes back to my usual 25 days, I'll be starting BCP for my IVF cycle around February 9th. What kind of protocol are you guys on?
