Mel - I am so sorry that you are suffering this way. I hope you get your happy ending with the ivf treatment. ! That's good that you will have genetic testing on your eggs. That's what they mentioned for me too. Its scary to think that you could probably even pick if you wanted only girl or only boy eggs implanted, isn't it!!??? You have been able to get pregnant and even a normal one so I am confident that they will be able to find some good ones!! It is disheartening that with all the expense and effort involved with IVF there are still no guarantees. It seems like for that kind of money they should be able to ensure that the darn egg will stick!!! Why did one of your doctors say no to pgd? That's interesting. I will probably need to head over the the PAL forum for a look. I feel so worn out about all of this I have really only been active on here on a couple threads that I have been in for a long time (and of course this one, which I love coming in to check on). I am very interested to see what the quality and quantity of my eggs is after my Day 3 test (I am going to be 39 next month boo!!!) Yeah I don't think adoption is an option we are willing to consider at this point, or even ever. We really want our own baby and if we can't have one then I guess we'll just move on and enjoy life just the two of us.
At this point I am leaning towards trying one more time with the progesterone earlier. The RE doctor said I'd start the progesterone at 3 DPO next time. (I think last pregnancy it was just waaaaaay to late to make a difference and I did test low for progesterone). We will see how my Day 3 test comes back then next month do the sonogram and start TTC with the progesterone I think. If that ends badly then we may look into the pgd IVF and like you said Kelsey, someone better be collecting all kinds of frickin tissue samples next time!!! DH is supportive and up for whatever at this point. He just doesn't want to see me go through another MC again, especially after the last one, which was awful. His grandfather passed this week and he did say to me the other day that nobody is going to care when we die (because we don't have kids ) Ugh!!! Depressing isn't it!!?? No AF yet, I think I would just be wasting a test to try it, but maybe I will in the next couple days to just for the heck of it. I really think you girls were right and I O'd late this cycle , around CD 20.
Kelsey - sorry you are having some bad weather but the pic you posted is beautiful. I love how the snow looks on the trees!!! By the way I hate to bring this up again but its in the 80's here today and I am sweating. I think the summer is going to be awful if its this hot now!! . I am not sure about BDing after the HSG. I don't think I had to wait. But I am not sure. Actually, I think he had me holding off in BDing the whole time of my testing because he did not want me to get prego until they got to the bottom of the testing. I have hear women say that they had luck after the HSG and felt that it might have "cleared" things out a bit flushing the dye through there. I hope that's the case for you!!!!
Rach - I hope those are pregnancy symptoms and not gas!!! I think if you haven't heard anything else from that job you should be Ok.
Sam - how are you feeling? I really hope you caught that egg this month. I noticed in your charts that you don't get a drastic spike in your temps around O. Its more mild. Is that the clomid that does that? I can't remember but are you taking progesterone too?
Well girls I am off for a nap, this heat has me exhausted!!! I will check in with you later
Hi fili - how are you? I was reading about you trying IVF and I am glad that is something yuo have decided to do. The thread has a few new people so moving quite fast atm.
Jess - I am not on clomid or progesterone. I haven't had my progesterone checked at all! I have an appointment for repeat bloods on Wed when coincidentally I will cd21/7dpo so I might ask, but I doubt they will. Its just the nurse taking bloods, not seeing a Dr and she wouldn't do the thyroid when I asked last time, but we'll see.
Apart from last month, I thought my temp jumps were okay, at least 0.4. I am bit worried now, do you think they should be higher?
Hi Sam - I would not be worried about it, It looks normal for you. Some people have a very drastic drop and then spike at O. I've always wondered about it. Maybe next time you go in to see the doctor you can take in a printed copy of your chart to show them. My RE doctor was very interested in seeing my charts when I brought them. I might ask again too when I go in next month.
Aww Mel I'm so sorry to hear how intense you are suffering.....I pray that IVF is the answer to your prayers...
Jessie I am also anxious to see what your Day 3 test shows. I really want that test, and I'll talk to my Dr. about that on Tuesday if that's something she's willing to test. I think it's a great idea to try again with progesterone earlier. I'll talk to my Dr. about that too, because now we know that I do have low progesterone and don't have the best OV. Sorry to hear about OH's grandpa, you know the saying though, death brings life? That's so sad to think about what your DH said....if we wouldn't have children nobody would care if we died. Gah, how awful to think. I also don't think I could do adoption, I really want the whole package, pregnancy and "our" baby that we made and has our features and personalities....
Sam I don't have drastic temp rises either. Even after I went on Clomid and had good progesterone, I still had slow rising temps. I've worried about it, but I've googled it a ton and it seems like some people are just slow temp risers.
Rachael good luck at your job tomorrow! I'll be thinking of you! What kind of hours will you be working? How are you feeling today? Still planning on testing tomorrow? I'll be stalking!
Lindsay, hope you're feeling good! Eliza, you too!
Hope everybody had a good weekend!
Hi Kelsey! Yes, I am anxious to get the test but still waiting for damn AF to arrive. I changed my O day on FF to CD 20 so we'll see if she shows up in the next day or 2. Yes definitely see what your doctor says about the progesterone. I would be curious to know too.
Thanks Kelsey. I'll be training for 12 weeks which will have me working Mon-Fri from 8-430. After that it will be Sun-Thurs 930-6! Which will be nice. I'm def not complaining! I hope when i go there tmrw they don't ask me why i even bothered showing up since i lied. How humiliating would that be?! I'd be so mad! Anyways, i been feeling okay today. Still feeling some light crampy stuff every now and then. Today i am CD 27 and 8dpo. Since my miscarriage in August i had been charting my cycles and they range from 29-33 days. Last month was my weird one.. it was a 35 day cycle. So from when i O'd if my lethal phase is 14 days then it will be a 33 day cycle this month. I'm praying this are PG symptoms and not just some cruel AF that will come early. I asked OH if my boobs looked different today LOL. They felt bloated to me but then again i was like noo. He said my nipples looked puffy lmfao! What a douche! He kills me. My cervix was really low last night.. this morning it was higher. I just pray i can get a BFP tmrw but i'll only be 9dpo. Not until 11dpo do i start to get excited but disappointed all in one!
