Re: Anyone in there mid 40s and ttc?

I am! I'll be 44 in October and have one child, almost 5 years old. I conceived him naturally and then had problems ever since. I've tried two IUIs and three IVFs and am now back in the middle of the 2ww for my third IUI cycle. I got pregnant 4 of the 5 previously assisted cycles, but miscarried. I ...

Re: anyone pass tissue while pregnant

None of us can really know. Have you told your doctor?

Re: Ghost and all - question about progesterone injections

Thanks for the replies. I am 7 days past egg retrieval for my 3rd IVF. I had no problems with progesterone levels during my 1st two IVF cycles, so I doubt there really is a problem with where and how we are injecting them. My progesterone level has not been checked this cycle yet. I was pinching the...

Ghost and all - question about progesterone injections

I am not extremely overweight, but I do have a few extra lbs on me (maybe 5-10 extra lbs). I have a question about the progesterone intramuscular injections. Up until today, my husband has been giving me these injections in my hip area where our RE nurse told us to inject them. Tonight, in preparati...

Ghost - question about 3 day transfer

Question for you simply because I need something else to obsess about! But seriously, just curious... Ghost - I am about to go through ER and ET this week sometime for my 3rd round of IVF. I have seen your answers to a lot of 5 DT questions, but I have a question about the # of cells that are "good"...

It's just a silly comment. People should think before they speak, but most don't. I had a friend years ago talk about how she wouldn't do anything out of the ordinary to conceive, like temp, ovu kits, anything. Well, she had to do IUI and get her cervix sewn shut in order for her two boys to make it...

GHOST - no heartbeat detected at 7weeks

Ghost: I had my 1st transvaginal u/s at 7w1d after ER and the RE saw a yolk sac and fetal pole, but no heartbeat. The fetal pole was measuring a week behind at around 4.9mm (and the RE said she normally likes to see it measuring around 20mm at this point). I have a second u/s scheduled for next week...

Our 1st IVF ended in a BFN as well. It sucked. But I knew we weren't 100% assured it would be successful.

Anyway, we made no changes to the protocol for our 2nd IVF. We ended up what seemed to be an identical cycle as the 1st one. But this time, it resulted in a BFP.

Holly,
I am on PIO injections for IVF and I am almost 6 weeks pregnant. I haven't really had sore boobs at all. And other "symptoms" have come and gone hourly, daily, etc. I know it's easier said than done, but please try not to analyze every symptom or even beta levels. It will just drive you crazy!

I spotted on and off this IVF cycle and I am 5 weeks pregnant now. I think the spotting started 10 dper and seemed to occur every other day or so. At first, it was pinkish with brown. Now I still have an occasional spot and it's brown. Sometimes it is enough to show up on a pantiliner, but nothing t...

Question for Ghost (or anyone else) - Low E2 7DPER

Ghost - I just had E2 bloodwork results from 7DPER and it came back at 132. The nurse said they like it above 200, so I am going to start taking some estrogen pills twice a day. Question 1: What is the significance of the E2 levels during the 2ww in IVF cycles? What does it do...how does it interact...

I think it depends on how each person's body takes the meds. I didn't gain any weight at all. So it isn't a sure thing that you will.
