I haven't posted for a while. Trying to catch-up. Thank you all so much for your kind words about my little baby girl. Still in tears about her daily. I had a hysteroscopy last week and my new RE found a septum taking up 30% of my uterus. (helps explain in part my multiple miscarriages!) I can't believe no other RE found it, but now it is gone and i am waiting for AF to start. probably in about 12 days. I hope I'm not starting too soon. We are just finishing out house remodel (NEVER AGAIN!!) and grieving horribly over our little baby. All the moms I've spoken to say the only way to fill the enormous void is to have another baby and really try to be pregnant before the time comes that your little one died.
So, here I am. Expecting to start stims day 3 (my heart goes out to my fellow poor-responders) My last dose of Folllistim was 450 with 2 of Repronex. And I only got 2 fertilized eggs. But I had the most beautiful baby I could ever dream of from it. So noone lose hope. It really only takes one.
Nicki - what a beautiful list. I love the sparkles. It really warmed my heart. Glad you are feeling better.
Rebecca - I had trouble on first IVF go too. They did a rescue ICSI at 18 hours (which never works except around 2% of time because eggs have waited too long). They all fertilized, but BFN. Sounds like they've learned something from your first try and I'm very hopeful it will go smoother this second go! (PS I grew up in Vancouver, WA across the Columbia river form Portland and did everthing in Portland as it was the bigger city to shop tax-free in.) I hope the weather is not too wet for you. I really miss 23rd street and Papa Haydn's.
Jovigal - Is menopar the same as Follistim? I think we're on a similar protocol. I had a high FSH last year 13 and last check was 8, 2 weeks ago. I don't want to check again either in case it jumps back up! But, you never know, it could go lower! My ovarian reserve is only 3-5 on each side. Not so good. But, will certainly get at least one beauty to go on.
N77 - so sorry for the added stress of bcp's. This is my first cycle without them and my dh is very happy as I supposedly get moody on them (he would consider "moody" an understatement). I think I just become extremely perceptive on everthing that is wrong with everything
Keeping my fingers crossed for you.
Charlie - Am I totally off or are you are first to embie transfer from the list? Sending warm thoughts to your little frosties.
Have been informed I need to go tell the granite guy where to put sinks etc in the house. (I have no idea where the blasted sinks and faucets should go!) So will leave for now. Much love to EVERYONE on the list and the new arrivals. This is really a great group and I hope we get loads of BFP's for the spring.
Quick question? has anyone else had prednisone during their cycle. I have a few immune issues and my RE's putting me on 10mg/day after ET through 1st tri and possibly heparin. Would love to know anyone's experience on that. I've heard it can make you even more moody...!*#!
