#251 trying again

Posted 26 September 2018 - 06:43 PM

Hey again everyone

I am so slack for not doing personals but I think I know where everyone is at and I have everything crossed for you all.

I am up to Perth tomorrow for my US and then I hope our last little frostie will be put in on Monday.  The funny thing is...if it is put in on Monday then my BT will be on my 41st birthday :omg:  It will be an awesome birthday present I hope hahahaha my 40th sucked...It was a BFN :no2:

Lots and Lots of baby dust to you all...I have everything crossed for you :yes: :heart:

sadly i may be returning to this room, although we are unsure if we will try again. at my 7 week scan on wednesday we discovered that are miracle baby no longer had a heartbeat. we are devastated and lost, and angry. we have an appointment in a few weeks time to discuss what if anything is next. 4 miscarriges in one year is just ridiculous.

Oh MrsP, I am so sorry to hear that. I have been in your shoes and there truly are no words, it is just flat out unfair. Many hugs, please take care xoxo

Oh MrsP I am so sorry.  My heart breaks for you.  Please take care and remember chocolate is our friend.  Try and rest and regroup.  We are always here for you if you need us even if it is just to vent and yell. All my love to you both xoxo

Mrs p I’m so sorry to hear that, sending so much support and many hugs to you. That does sound like an incredible run of bad luck- I hope that you get some answers as to what happened. Take care of yourself during this awful time.

Hi everyone, it’s been awhile- DH and I only returned from our USA holiday this week and it’s been hectic settling back into work etc. I’m so sorry for missing the updates from everyone both new to the group and longtimers- I will try and catch up on where everyone is at and do personals soon.

We had a good holiday and I had my nurses consult for our second stim cycle yesterday. Probably only going to do it in November though as I have some important interstate events in October right at the time that EPU would be if we started right now.

The nurse said that our fertilisation rate wasn’t great last cycle (only 5 out of 10 eggs fertilised) and my FS has me on the exact same protocol with just a tiny tiny bit higher dose of gonal F. Hoping it does the trick.

This week marked 2 years of actively TTC #1. Trying to stay hopeful is the hardest part of this journey I reckon.

Sending love to all, and I will get back to being more on top of everything soon :) M xo

Today I am CD 10, had U/S after 5 days of gonal f, dose 37,5. Have mixed feelings about results: lining 6 mm, one follicle on right side 14 mm, all others left and right are 10 mm or less. Trigger shot for Sunday evening and IUI (#1) scheduled for Tuesday noon. The aim was 2-3 follicles, probably the dosage was to low? Hope they will grow further over the next few days.

Also, had a conflict with DH.. at 41 he feels he is getting to old for a baby, and even though he really wanted children before, he accepted the idea to not have them. We agreed to keep trying for some time more, but I feel there is an additional shadow over our TTC business.. argh, c'est la vie.

Nbmb - it is so very hard...this little roller coaster we are all riding sucks big time.  People think it is just hard on us but our poor partners go through so much as well.  Please just take it slow and make sure that you guys talk heaps.  It is so much easier not talking and just going through the motions but that is just not helpful in the end.  I hope you guys are going ok now.

OK...I have a question for everyone if that is ok.  So I have done this more than once and I know what I am doing...kinda...BUT when I put the progesterone in all goes ok and I lie down for 15 minutes (even at work...my boss thinks I am nuts) but an hour or so later when I go to the loo a great big plop of white stuff comes out...or it is in my knickers...is that normal? and if it is does my body get enough progesterone before the plop falls out???  I have never actually asked this question before and now I am stressing :omg:

#264 Theia

Posted 01 October 2018 - 04:21 PM

Happens to me too trying, that's just the wax though, your body would have already absorbed the progesterone. I figure my bloods always showed ok progesterone levels so I must be getting what I needed (and most times I would just sit after taking it instead of a full lie down). Did you have a blood test a few days after you started pessaries?

#265 trying again

Posted 01 October 2018 - 04:26 PM

Thanks so much Theia - Nah they don't do that where I am.  I only get bloods the day of my US to see what my lining is and then 2 weeks after my transfer and then weekly if positive...When I get my positive this time I am going to go to my normal GP and ask for bloods in between because the wait nearly kills me more than the 2WW :omg:

#266 trying again

Posted 01 October 2018 - 06:50 PM

Sorry everyone I need some calming words...I just need to know it will be ok...I am having a slight heart attack...I am so scared because it is our last go and there has been so many BFP lately and will that mean that I will miss out.  It doesn't work like that right?  I am going crazy I really am...what if I wasn't meant to have another baby? What if I should be happy I got one like people keep saying to me...I'm 41 next week...I'm probably too old...I am so sorry...My mum will tell me to be quite and I am being silly and my husband will tell me I don't look my age I will be fine...I am stressing majorly :( help please...just tell me it will be ok :omg:

#267 Nbmb

Posted 02 October 2018 - 04:57 AM

Trying again - thank you for the kind words and the tip. With dh we keep getting to the same conclusion, I can't see how this could change.. other than with BFP.. hopefully, if it happens, it will turn his feelings in the right direction.

I complitely understand your panic.. but hey, someone out there is generous with BFPs this month. So to be on a positive side, maybe it will be enough to step in the same line and get some :) and yes, you WILL be ok!

Afm, took a first trigger shot yesterday. Of course (is there any other option?) I needed to POAS today, to see that ovulation is in progress. And of course also hpt in parallel, to make sure hpts that I have actully work :)) - wanted to see how the second line looks like, when I don't imagine it. Must admit, looks lovely, would like to get it again ;)

MrsP - there are simply no words for your loss. Just so so sorry. Thinking of you.

Nbmn - it is so difficult when you're not on the same page as your partner, as others have said, communication is key - I really wish you all the best.

Trying again - yes the wax is so gross. Because I have so many pessaries twice a day I have to do them at the same time (vaginally and rectally - sorry tmi) and the wax is horrendous. My clinic makes me lay down for 30 min, it's crazy! But that's for the combo ones (E2/P5). I do all the progesterone ones rectally cos then you don't have to lay down at all! Oh and your panic makes sense - but it definitely doesn't work that way! Hehe I thought the same thing, but it's just manic thoughts!

#269 trying again

Posted 02 October 2018 - 01:50 PM

Nbmb - Oh I really do hope that more two lines will be coming soon for you...I guess we just have to wait...it feels like that is all we do hehehehe

Lucky - I don't think there is any such thing as TMI here.  But I do think I might just suck it up and start doing the progesterone rectally.  If I don't have to lay down it would be so much more easier for me.  I have my pessaries at 5am, 11pm and 5pm so it would be nice if i didn't have to lie down all the time.  My head is going crazy at the moment.  It is seriously driving me nuts.  I just need to calm down.  If it is meant to happen the unicorns and faeries will make it happen otherwise it is not meant to be.

#270 trying again

Posted 02 October 2018 - 05:55 PM

So sorry it is me again...So I go for transfer on Thursday.  That is Day 20 for me...it (or they) will be Day 5 embryo's...question...I feel like i am getting my period this has never happened to me before...has it happened to anyone else please? Are they putting the embryo (s) in too late do you think? My back is killing me, I also have a really sore tummy but that maybe anxiety. I just don't know.  Any advise would be much appreciated thanks.

#271 Theia

Posted 02 October 2018 - 06:34 PM

Hey trying, sorry this cycle is so stressful for you. My transfer was on day 24 because they like to keep me on estrogen for a while due to my crappy lining. When did you start progesterone? Does your clinic offer counselling? These cycles are hard enough as it is but if it's quite possibly your last attempt I imagine that raises the stress levels a lot.

#272 trying again

Posted 02 October 2018 - 06:52 PM

Hey Theia...Oh that makes me feel so much better.  I started Progynova on Day 2 (16th Sept) and my Progesterone on Day 14 (28th Sept). It does but last time I went they told me to move down to Perth (I am remote WA) and not to stay at my mum's because of the stress. It really wasn't that helpful so I didn't go back. My lining was 11.4 on Thursday (24th) so I know that one is OK.  I just don't know why i feel like I am getting my period.  I thought HRT was meant to stop that and you would just go on like you are on the pill :omg:

#273 Theia

Posted 02 October 2018 - 07:06 PM

The progesterone can definitely give you af symptoms, it's not much fun really (but hopefully all worth it). I haven't seen any improvement in my lining from medicated transfers so will be asking about natural cycles for any future transfers. If you're still worried tomorrow, perhaps give the nurses a call.

#274 trying again

Posted 03 October 2018 - 06:02 PM

OK So I gave the clinic a call and they sent me a blood test form...I had my bloods and everything came back fine...I'm right on track and they are really happy. :yes:

I went to my Kinesiology lady today and she helped me A LOT and she found that I had so much stress that I was self sabotaging this transfer.  She is pretty sure that she got rid of all the negativity that I have so I am feeling very very positive now.  Still have a sore back and tummy like AF is coming but after the bloods I know it means nothing so I will just not worry about it. :yes:

Transfer tomorrow...I still dont know if it is two or one embryo but I am happy to find out when I get there :yes:

Hope everyone is doing OK...I sending you all lots of good thoughts :heart:

Trying again we’re twinning on our cycles. I’m on progynova and pessaries (3 times a day, the wax is horrid), and we’re transferring a 5 day blast today hopefully. I know my specialist and nurses both asked if I had any tummy upset from the progynova, so maybe that’s where it’s coming from. Good luck.
