They are still samll (ranged from 6-12) but they are growing :) Doctor said we may try a Lupron trigger this time with Vivelle (?) since he suspects teh HCG trigger not quite doing it last time which may have resulted in...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Ninde - not sure yet on ER. Just started injectibles last night so Im guessing in about 2 weeks. I am starting to feel a little nervous. This is my third try at IVF and I don't think my insurance covers any more attempts. If this doesn't work I'm not sure what my options are :( DH's sperm count has ...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Hi Girls, Back after a long break since the MC. The issue turned out to be genetic as suspected. Trisomy 9 I believe. We have an appointment with our RE today to see whats next. Not sure if we are doing a full cycle or maybe IUI, or who knows. I have a lot of reading to do to catch up with everyone ...

Re: Fall/Winter Board Combined (Sept2011-Feb2012) This is it

HopeThisWorks-I pray that the genetic testin provides you with some answers. We were able to have genetic testing with the last MC but the results were normal. Will they be doing any other type of testing for you or blood work? We already had teh full chicago work up so not much other testing to do...

Re: Fall/Winter Board Combined (Sept2011-Feb2012) This is it

Leora, odds are it is genetic with that particular fetus/emby. If that is the case then there is nothing that can be done for it and it just happens... If it is something else, perhaps it can be treated. LYD, I saw the ingredients in the Fertile Max. Almost exactly what we were taking (minues the Co...

Had the D&C Friday. All went smooth. Waiting on the genetic teeing results now & then discussing plan for next try. If we got pregnant and made 2 months, we can make it all the way :)

Re: Fall/Winter Board Combined (Sept2011-Feb2012) This is it

Hi ladies, I m back from ER. They got 10 eggs, which is normal for me. They got 11 when I was 39 and 13 when I was 37 but only 10 were mature. Everyone wished me happy 40th bday in that office. So nice of them to notice! The best news was my DH sperm count and quality went up. So those suppliments ...

We have to of a D&C and then genetic testing to find out why this happened. Felt heartbroken yesterday and numb today. Hate to ...
