I have to catch up on everyone here:

Sunny- that’s awesome you are having a “textbook” cycle! Wow. That would be nuts huh hey it would save some money if you conceived lol

Steph- glad those injections aren’t causing you too many problems. Also (all bough this is a rare comment) I hope AF comes soon!

Dream- I hope your cycles stay “normal” !

Amber- that’s looking great! Yes, just breathe. When will your first appointment be? Did you say 8 weeks?

Ct- how’s the pain been?

Afm- yes AF came and it doesn’t get any easier. Went to my doctor today for my baseline and the 15-20 min ultrasound became 45 minutes. The cyst on my left ovary was still there and looking strange. I was close enough to the doors while waiting to see the doctor that I could hear my doctor, the tech and the surgeon talking about it. My doctor said 1, its definitely looking like I have PCOS. This time I did see that string of pearls on the ultrasound so I knew that was coming. She said we can only do a couple more cycles then she wants me to talk to their IVF guy. Also, they want to go in and biopsy the cyst because it can’t go left untreated too long because it looks tumor like. I’m kind of lost and confused so hopefully I just get pregnant this cycle and can worry less. She said also she might have us do this extra semen test that doesn’t get done with a regular SA. The sperm can appear normal but then actual break down at a cellular level (I could be wrong about that terminology!) but I’m a bit overwhelmed right now.

On that note- doing 5mg of Femara, have a follicle study next Thursday and hopefully we will have the regular SA results by then so we can determine if regular BD will suffice or if we should do IUI

Steph, ahh your sweet hubby I second Tb, hope AF will be there soon Will you start estrogen as soon as AF arrives?

My protocol starts with estrogen, then adding progesterone, and finally 3 shots of (low dose) hCG. So simple. I hope the estrogen is enough to completely suppress ovulation though (since I won't be on Suprecur).

Amber, so glad to see your FRER! That looks much better. When is your appointment?

Dream, I hope Preseed does the trick

Tb, oh my that's all very overwhelming! I hope the cyst problem isn't too serious. When will you go in for your biopsy? Is the SA a DNA fragmentation test? Hang in there hun! I can't help but think that after all this is said and done and we have our little ones, we'll be even more appreciative and thankful than if it all went the easy way.

Tb- so sorry you are going through all that, it sounds very overwhelming! I will be keeping you in my thoughts and hope everything goes as smoothly as possible.

Dream- how did your acupuncture appt go?

Sunny- My first appt with the nurse is on Jan 29th and then I will have my first ultrasound sometime in the week after that. It feels so far away!

She didn’t sound like they were going to rush into doing the biopsy since I’m trying to get pregnant, just mostly that they wanted to keep monitoring it and reassess after a few cycles. And yes it’s the dna fragmentation. I couldn’t for the life of me remember at the time I was typing lol. We don’t live where there are any REs or fertility specialists. Everyone is at least 3 hours away. My doctors say they “have an interest in fertility” and they do everything except IVF but they work with all the IVF docs around us so that they can limit the amount of driving for things like ultrasounds and same day labs. Anyway, hopefully I can just get pregnant soon and stay that way. I don’t know how we could possibly afford IVF.

Oh TB, I'm sorry you were left feeling so overwhelmed after your appointment. I hope so badly for you that you will get pregnant in the next couple of months and won't have to consider IVF.

Amber, I know the 29th feels so far away but it is less than three weeks now! I hope time flies by for you

Sunny, your protocol does sound lovely and simple. Funny that I'm the one on Suprecur and I don't ovulate on my own at all

Body is confusing me and driving me crazy! Beginning to get a bit frustrated :/ BFN this morning on a cheapie CD 34 no sign of AF. Nipples and so sore and itchy I can't touch them and I felt wet down below well I was working so I was like "son of a cracker Jack, AF came at work I have no supplies" went to check and I have a thick milky white discharge that stained my knickers.

Body seems to be telling me yes but hpt's are telling me no! Grr

Cowgirl - Arg! I hate the limbo phase at the end of a cycle. If AF is coming you want her to just get here already so you can start fresh and if shes not coming then where's the BFP. It's rough, waiting sucks.

Amber, ohh man that's still so far away! You're much more patient than I am How are you feeling?

Tb, I'm glad they're not that worried about the cyst. IVF sure isn't fun and I hope it doesn't come to that. In case you ever decide that it's not worth it because of the money, I'd really consider going abroad. In total (including meds, the whole IVF thing, and travel) we spent less than we would have spent on just the IVF meds back in the US.

Steph, haha that is kinda ironic with the Suprecur isn't it?! Has AF arrived yet? How are things going?

Cowgirl, so sorry for your confusing cycle. It seems like you either didn't ovulate or ovulated way later than you normally do. Did you test with OPK's or take your temperature? It really goes to show that our bodies can't be trusted with pregnancy-like symptoms!

I didn't because my partner lives in NYC So I wasn't expecting to try till Feburary when I saw him again but he surprised me by coming up the end of December, so bring super excited we BD'd without thinkinh. I had the two days of really light pink/brown spotting with really painful cramps, now I have pregnancy symptoms. Nips are untouchable and the pain in my stomach and back is unreal :/ figure I will test Monday, if still a beg I will go for blood work. That should tell me definitively
