Hi ashley! I'm using The Advanced IVF Institute. I see Dr. Charles Miller. I hope you get your natural BFP before June!
Angela we are looking to do our FET around that time too. I'm really dragging my feet as Dr wants to repeat alot of tests and I'm just not in the mood. I just feel it's very unfair with all the pregnancy announcements all around.
Krissie I'm glad you aren't upset by AF. It sounds like you are in a good place right now.
AFM 11 or 12 dpo and BFN this morning. I'm feeling very defeated. I just wish it would happen and my whole world didn't revolve around Ttc.
Krissie as per the other thread I really hope NTNP gives you your BFP you so deserve xx
Dogmommy I know how your feeling its hard watching everyone around you fall preggo so easy but its so difficult for you xx
So sorry Ive been MIA but had nothing to say Ive struggled hard this time with the IVF failure. My heads all over the place again since my consultation we are now back in unexplained infertility section with a secondary cause being a male fertility issue. The doctor showed us everything and explained my DHs SC better he is just under normal thats it so they would expect a couple to get pregnant they've done all the tests they can to do anymore would be far too time consuming and not feesible i.e. daily blood tests for three months checking all kinds of hormone levels and even if they did do that it may still not show any issues. They said all my eggs were goid quality I have on paper I have no issues at all and thats why its unexplained.
We are going to go for a natural FET meaning they work off my own body clock no hormone replacements at all as my O cycle is really good my body has already gone back into sync its not taken 3 months hence why I had three bleeds in the space of a month. We can start the next round next cycle but its ourcall whether we want some time first to do counselling and acupuncture work on us all Ive got to do is call them on the first day of my cycle and the ball will start rolling, Im undecided yet as to whether I wish to start next month or if I want some more time off we shall see.
The counselling was hard we went together and opened up which was good she told me to start a journal in that journal Im to write down exactly how I feel about stuff about people getting pregnant around me how I feel about what people say to mewhat I see. She said of course I feel happy for people but Im also grieving for what Ive lost and not got and its okay to feel bitter and angry and sad too and I should write it down as that will help me release some of everything that Im going through so I'll give it a go. We have our next counselling session on 27th March I'm hoping it will help me through this.
How is everyone anyway x
Dogmommy that journal thing maybe you should try that too it may help xx
Well that is some good news that you can do a natural FET. Maybe your body will be more able to accept the embryo without all the other hormones. I really have everything crossed your FET works.
Afm, thanks. It has been such a draining process. I am pretty sure my body has been detoxing from all the medication over the last year. I am finally feeling better and hoping I get back on track. I have an appointment tomorrow and I want to discuss birth control options. I remember when I was first looking to try the RE I saw had recommended birth control for 3 months and then clomid. I was kinda thinking maybe if I did that and reset my body it might help as we start thinking about possibly trying in the summer. But I am not sure if I am even able to take birth control with my recent bouts of high blood pressure.
Then there is the whole DH thinks he is about 95% sure he doesn't want to pursue having another. To be honest I am not so sure either. It just sucks being in such a limbo. I am hoping if we possibly give it a break and some time we will both reach a decision we are happy with.
Whatever is best for you guys thats what matters, I can see why you would want to stop all this TTC can put so much pressure on you mentalky and physically and also your relationship you have a beautiful son you are blessed xx I remember because of high blood pressure and heart conditions in the family they put me on a pill which was progesterone only called cerraset not sure how you spell it like xx
How's everyone doing? AF showed last week so we are onto another cycle. DH and I talked about our FET and think we might put it off until June. We have alot of travel plans coming up and I want to be stress free and get about 10 lbs off before we use our frozen embryos. I think part of me is also scared if it fails. I'm not sure how I will handle it.
Hey, friends!!! I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. I haven't really had anything to update. I've been kind of stress free about the whole thing (I use that phrase loosely, lol). I am, of course, still thinking about TTC all of the time. But, I haven't been on any medicine/supplements. I stopped taking the Inositol. I don't know why, I just kind of quit doing it. I hadn't been very focused on my diet either, however, as I've gained 15 more pounds, I decided to try again and get serious about it this time. Hubby is on board, too! I'm trying to count my calories rather than be so restrictive about no carbs. I think that just set me up for failure the first time. I'm hoping that through controlled diet and getting some daily exercise, I will be able to conceive naturally. I started my new eating habits on the 24th of this month, so it's just been a couple days. I'll be interested to see how long it takes for me to get AF (or if she'll come at all). I am on approximately CD 160 with no sign of her.
DogMommy, I will be praying for a positive result from your FET! I think waiting until June sounds like a good plan. That way, you won't be trying to work around your travel plans. Good luck with the weight loss! It can certainly be a challenge, but you can do it!
Angela, I've been thinking about you! I'm sorry if I missed it in my earlier reading, but do you all have plans for when you will move forward with another IVF cycle? I am praying for you as well!
Krissie, I think that whatever you and hubby decide together will be the right decision! My husband and I have tossed around so many ideas such as adoption, fostering, etc. It can be so hard to decide what is right. I'm glad that you two are discussing it and I hope you get some clarity on it soon!
Dogmommy- good luck with your weightloss. That will only help with the FET I am sure.
Brandi- Good luck with your new diet. I hope af decides to show up for you. Those long cycles are dreadfully awful.
Angela- How are you doing hun?
Afm, just kinda taking it easy. When I went to discuss b/c my blood pressure was fine. I am wondering if it was the wrist cuff causing issues and giving high readings. I have never used those before so I guess it is possible.
I did decide to go on birth control for now. I plan to revisit ttc or more permanent birth control with DH come July. It is nice to just not worry about it and think about the now and DS.
Krissie I'm glad things are going less stressful for you. Stress is a horrible thing mentally and physically!
Brandi you too! Glad things are going ok. Weight loss is so hard. I look at a piece of chocolate and there goes 2 more lbs!
Afm I'm somewhere post O . I honestly didn't do any opk or pay attention to cm this month. I had my first round of testing for my FET and they did cultures to test for everything that could cause mc and everything came back so I was happy to get some good news. One step closer to our FET. I leave this weekend for a mini vacation and look forward to reading some books and getting a tan! My app says AF will be here next Wednesday so we will see what happens.
Red how are you adjusting with life? Busy I'm sure!
Angela how are you doing? Any plan when your FET will be?
