zp - Yay for camping Stress can definitely throw your O off...
Lily - exciting! Give us an update when you have it
AFM - had a horrible consult at the local fertility clinic on Monday with a completely unsympathetic rude doc (have been in a very grumpy mood every since). Signed up for the IVF info session (next available date May 30!) and went on the waitlist, but not sure if I want to get treatment there. I might give them another chance, as we have a follow-up appt on May 1.
Other than that, running from one test to the other again - more bloodwork for me, ultrasound for follicle counts etc next week; more bloodwork, ultrasounds and a specialized SA (an actual IVF ICSI prep to see if there is enough) for DH.
I am getting exhausted
Dang, Auca, that is quite a list of tests! I hope some of them actually help you get some answers.
Lily, I hope you caught that eggy!
AFM, my body is still completely in denial that it needs to shed its lining so we can finally begin these injections so I'm just having a bunch of birth control withdrawal symptoms - bitchiness and cramping. Just trying to will it along.
Lilly410-welcome! Thread rule is no testing til 12dpo...but we've all broken the rule before!
Auca - I say find a new doc - I definitely wouldn't stick with one I wasn't comfortable with - this is all so important to you and hubby and IMO you need to feel really comfortable with your medical team. That said if you think transitioning will result in extende delays it may be worth just grinning and bearing it. Good luck whatever you choose
Twag - you're a few dpo - how you feeling?
SA results look great - 65% motility (they want to see at least 50%) with good count so between that and my HSG results we're feeling relatively optimistic that we can make this thing happen - it may take clomid and/or IUI but we're going to stick with natural until at least June (after a big vacation).
Happy Thursday ladies - who else is ready for the weekend?!
AF managed to show up on Thursday and is still around. Did my first injection on Fri night and that went great. Not too many side effects so far. Shots are super easy to give and feel like a pinch. Liking the tiny super sharp needles.
u/s on Monday (third Monday in a row I see my RE - it's becoming our thing) to check follicles.
Lilly410 - hello! I agree with veganlily - try to wait till you're at 12 dpo for testing!
AuCa - oh no, a rude doctor is the worst! It's already so hard to go and see them about a problem and that just doesn't help at all! Is it possible to ask the centre if you can see a different doctor?
Lily - yay for good SA results!!
Baking - glad that your body finally cooperated and that you got to start the injections. Hope you got lots of follicles
AFM, I got a letter last week from the fertility centre inviting me to an IVF patient information evening on Wednesday 3 April!! Hubby convinced me to go snowboarding for a few days over Easter (may as well since I'm still not pregnant!) so I've been trying to eat lots of snacks to make up for it! Hope I didn't lose any weight!
