Well the FET was not successful. Well it was we got a positive, but then I lost the baby soon after so I am trying not to dwell too much on it. It ended up happening on the due date of the baby we lost in September. It has been horribly crazy. I was bouncing between crazy and even crazier the last few days. But starting to get back to normal. I think we might wait another month before we try another FET just to give ourselves an emotional break. So no tracking for the next month or two will be nice. I like taking stress breaks, gets me back into a better head space. Hoping to drop a few pounds that the last round of hormones put on me.
Oh Shel, I am so terribly sorry to hear that I think it makes total sense to take a break after all of that. You need some time to grieve, and some time to get back to feeling like yourself again. I'm here for you to vent to!
AFM, AF is due in a couple days. I will start spotting tomorrow if its going to show. I'm already feeling more depressed and snarky so I fully expect it to show. We will give femara a shot for the next go around. I don't expect it to do much for us, but I guess it is worth a try. Its the next step anyway. We'll look into IUI for after June. I get so depressed sometimes and feel so hopeless with this process. So lately I've just been trying not to think about it and focus on other things.
I guess it's time to join the support group. TTC #1 since March 2016. No health insurance right now, so no testing to be done for a few months. I have guesses as to what our problems might be, but I don't know anything for sure. I have very light and short periods, which makes me think my lining is too thin. I also never get EWCM, and my husband has super viscous semen.
We're in a transition period in our lives (moving and new jobs), but I'm hoping to begin testing once things settle down. I think I might post exclusively in this forum, because all these women getting BFPs so quickly is making me jealous. :/
Hi Green, sorry to have to welcome you over to this side of the forum. I can relate to feeling jealous over all of those quick BFPs in other forums. I also get upset over pregnancy tickers when people continue to post in the ttc section. At least in LTTTC they have rules about that lol
Get your husband taking Vitamin C! It's supposed to help with viscosity and clumping.
Shel we haven't talked in awhile. I see you are planning on another FET for April?
We are on our second femara cycle. Still feeling set on IUI in June.
Hi, for my hubs sperm issues we were told by the doctor to try vitamin c, e and coq10 for three months. He also really amped up his water intake and made sure to relieve himself (cough) every three days at a minimum. This had some really good changes to his sperm.
Bellenuit, hi Hun.good luck on the femera cycle, are you being monitored? What cd are
We are still doing April FET. Trying. Aturally this cycle and see on cd 16 and waiting to ovulate. Things have been nuts, I am getting better since the losses but still so emotional. But we have a plan and if this doesn't work we know what's our next steps will me moving forward.
Hi Shel, I'm glad things have been getting better. I would be so emotional too in that situation. I am really hoping things work out for you this cycle or the next! What are your next steps do you think?
They aren't monitoring me for the FE cycles. I always O regularly so I don't think its going to help with much. When we start IUI we'll do a monitored cycle to see how the FE is impacting my lining (it tends to be on the thin side, which I think is our major issue). I'm on CD 6 today. Will finish up the FE tomorrow and I'm hoping for another CD 14 O.
Good luck with the lining! Femera didn't I pack mine negatively in any way, and I have heard the same from lots of people so don't worry about that. The only thing is femera made me ovulate way earlier than normal. But I was on 5mg or something, not sure what you are on.
It has been super difficult, trying to feel normal after everything but I am getting there. I have a new normal now and I am slowly excepting it.
We have decided that we will finish the frozen embryos in the clinic, do one more full round of IVF and if not successful we will continue with adoption. I am 35, he is 40 so we are thinking one more full year and then just move forward with a different route to family. Although we are praying and hoping that this FET will work, and then stick around for the whole nine months, and then become a baby that is alive and well.
I'm only on 2.5mg so pretty low dose. I O'd on CD 14 last cycle with it and I used to O pretty early (CD 12), so if anything I think its helping to delay my O a little bit which is great. I'm hoping I'll get the same thing to happen this cycle.
I think with infertility your sense of normal shifts, and losses only compound that. I think your plan makes a lot of sense and I think its great to set timelines like that. Its good to start mentally preparing for what the next steps are, but its also good to have a finishing line in place. That said I am hoping that your FET works as well and that the third times a charm and this one will stick!
I think it is time for me to make my way over here... It is hard being in the other TTC forums sometimes as I feel like my hopes and expectations each month are very different than some of the other ladies.
A little bit about us. Hubby and I got married August 2015, but started TTC in April of that year. Next month it will have been a two year journey for us. We began seeing an RE shortly after we began trying (July 2015) as I was referred by my family dr to investigate my chronic pelvic pain. At that time, we did bloodwork, semen analysis and HSG and all came back totally normal. In April 2016 we fell pregnant naturally and we were over the moon, only to find out a week later that the pregnancy wasnt viable. We ended my ectopic pregnancy medically in May 2016.
Since then, we haven't had a positive test. We went back to see our RE in January. She sent me for another HSG, and depending on the results we would move on to IUI or IVF this summer. My right tube was open, but the dye wasnt flowing through the left. Our next appointment isnt until May, so I guess it is just a waiting game until then .
Hi jwilly, sorry to have to welcome you over to this side of the forum. I never thought I would be here myself :/
I'm sorry to hear about your ectopic pregnancy as well. That makes things hard! Are you guys trying naturally for these next few cycles? Or are you taking clomid/femara at all?
We are unexplained, which considering how young we are I find surprising. We started ttc when i was 26 and DH was 29, now I'm nearly 28 and he's 31. There has to be something wrong, it can't just be bad luck that we are on cycle 20 with no pregnancies ever. We'll start IUI in June I suspect, unless life throws us some curve balls.
