Ok ladies my dearest friend and TR sister was having no luck getting pg and not even ovulating right. After 4 years she has found a new doc, gone off all meds to get cleaned out and started pregnitude and now Os like a champ and is PREGNANT after 4 cycles!!
I think it's worth a shot for anyone willing to look into it!!!
CD1 for me. Good thing - my LP seems to be at a consistent 14 days on clomid. Next cycle my doctor will be adding an HCG trigger shot at cd13 so I ovulate sooner. I didn't temp very much last month, mainly to lessen stress, but also because my thermometer fell under the bed and I didn't feel like crawling under there to get it. Since I'm getting a trigger shot, I don't need to temp at all this cycle, which is nice.
I'm trying not to get down about all this, especially because I know y'all have been TTC longer than I have. I just wish I had gotten the TR sooner. I know we had it done when we could afford both the surgery and adding to our family. We're in a great financial place now with our only debt being the mortgage. It's just we seem to have so much against us, with my age, DOR, and MFI. IVF is not really an option for us since it would take probably 3-4 cycles for me to get enough eggs to do anything. We're considering IUI, but I just don't know.
I am sorry you are feeling discouraged, Navy. I spent the first year like that. I don't think it matters really how long we each try. We all still want the same thing.. I used to say I just wanted to get pregnant, but now I want to get pregnant and keep it.
Makes me feel sometimes like I don't appreciate the gift of conception. You really did the best thing with making sure you were in a great financial spot. I am sure that you will conceive, we just all stress about our age and time. I am not really in a great financial position to have a baby. Sometimes I think I should just stop trying, but if I wait, time will not stand still for me. You are very lucky to be financially stable. We are a financial disaster.
Brandy, I don't know what the heck I was thinking about asking if your girls were fraternal. I was praying for them this morning and I was like, "You're so dumb Angie." "You know she had two eggs." I felt dumb...
Navy- Its just as hard at 6 months TTC as it is at 4 years.. it’s frustrating and disappointing.. I didn’t know some of the emotions I had. There was some points I shut down and didn’t feel anything! It’s quite the rollercoaster and you’re welcome to vent regardless of how long you have tried.
Angie- I was in your shoes before IVF I got pregnant but I couldn’t keep it.. we will never know why but to me its much more heartbreaking that not being able to get that BFP.. You are nowhere near ungrateful don’t ever think that.
AFM- I have another ultrasound tomorrow. I just so freaking happy to finally know what we are having. I cant even tell you how blessed I am and it’s totally overwhelming. I appreciate you all very much. I cant believe that I am almost out of the first trimester… depending on whos calculating it. According to the twins guideline for pregnancy I was out of first TRI on 9/16 but by singleton standards I have another week to go. I know what I am having and I have started the nursery……. I am just in awe I really cant believe where I was a year ago and where I am now. I really have you all to thank for listening to me bitch moan and cry to get me through it.
You gals are awesome. My DH always wants me to talk with him, but he doesn't really "get" it. Plus, I get tired of explaining to him what all the terms mean, LOL. He tries to keep things positive, but sometimes I just need to be sad and upset. Since we have male factor as well, I have to make sure that he doesn't feel badly about that, too.
I have my monitoring ultrasound on Sep. 30, and hopefully the follicle (if there is one) will be large enough to trigger so I don't have to drive back to the doctor's office, LOL. I researched some fertility acupuncturists in the area and made an appointment for Monday. She seems really nice and knowledgeable, but being CD1 I had to cut short the conversation so that I wouldn't start crying on the phone. I have the new patient paperwork, and boy does it ask odd questions! She does Chinese medicine along with the acupuncture, and some of the questions are about what color my urine is!
We're going to Disneyworld in November with all the kids, so at least I'll have a week where I won't be worrying about TTC at all. Even if the next cycle is unsuccessful, my next fertile period will be before we leave, and a vacation will make the TWW go faster.
I can't wait to hear about your ultrasound tomorrow, Brandy! I'm so excited to read each update about your little girls.
Navy have you considered asking for a medicated injection cycle with trigger? I am not sure how much it is and such but some doctors will use the IVF meds in a minimum form for a few days then trigger to release multiple eggs. That would atleast give you a hint of how you could potentially respond to IVF as well.
