I look like I'm 5months preggers already because I'm so swollen and filled to the top! Anywhoo keep the BFP's coming and I will TTYL.... :mrgreen:

I know exactly how you feel!!! I had the same thing happen to me immediately after my ER last Oct. It made my fibroids go CRAZY & my uterous was enlarged...the ovaries were 6x the normal size & I couldn't walk. So it took a while for them to go down about 1 week. Then they had me on lupron depo for 3 months, then surgery to remove the fibroids then 3 months to heal & then i got my BFP!!! good for you...hang in there.
ME 35 PCOS (had 1 MC in 5/07, got preg on our own)
DH 45 normal
IUI 5/09 - BFN
IUI 7/09 - BFN
IVF cycle 1/had ER 16 mature, 9 fert, 3 FE but no ET, fibroids 2 big, need surgery
FET #1 4/19
Beta#1 on 4/29-149-BFP Beta#2 5/3-811,beta#3 5/6-2589

Hi Girls,
Just thought I'd pop on to give you all a quick update on me. Just so you know...I have been reading and praying and rooting you all on almost everyday...I just havent felt like posting lately. The miscarriage is kinda hitting me harder now that the shock has worn off.

As most of you probably know and remember....that we had a long time ago decided that we were not going back for another fresh cycle...we only had 3 frozen embryos from when I was 39 left...and we used them all on the last cycle.

But, we are trying right now for a natural miracle with using progesterone suppositories for lining/luteal support right now (we think that is one of our many issues). We just couldnt give up after all. They say that once your body has been pregnant and also right after a miscarriage that you are more fertile...so we shall see if it helps us get pregnant at all. I used ovualtion strips and checked my CM to see when I ovulated and it was either Sunday night or Monday morning....so I at least ovulated, too. I am pretty sure that I dont always ovulate either. I am hoping to check and get a positive hpt while on vacation the night of our Anniversary on the 26th (yes, we are going back to Myrtle Beach for another quick trip....since we got such a great rate for both trips, plane tickets were $10 each way). I will be 11dpo...so could be too early...though I got a positive at 11dpo last time...so maybe. 3 IUI's did not work...so I have no idea why I think this will work...yet for some strange reason...I am really hopeful. Maybe cause I did get pregnant with both IVF's, I dont know.

Anyhow, trying naturally gives me something to be hopeful about and to pass the time...this month and next...cause the earliest IVF we can do will be transfer at the end of July, due to the miscarriage. Yet, cause it was so early and ended up being much like a normal period...that is why the doc gave us the green light to try again, now. I cant believe that we are actually considering doing this again. My embryos with Zach and the frozen ones were from when I was 39...we are scared to death to try again at 42. I will be 42 on May 30th. Our chances of Down Syndrome or something else going wrong are much much higher now. Yet, we just cant give up now. Not yet.

Tammy – I am so happy that you have a plan for the future. I wish you good luck for trying on your own. It sounds like you have an idea what might help you, so I am praying it works for you.

So the next time you can try IVF again is in July. That isn’t too far away. I know one way or another you will have your next miracle; you seem like such a loving and caring person, you deserve it.

Please keep us updated!

Had another 2 liters removed....now I actually feal normal! I lost 2lbs!!! Dr says my OHSS should resolve within the next couple of weeks. This IVF cycle I gained 11lbs. :oops: Now the wait until my U/S....I'm so excited. I must say that this journey has brought me many ups and downs but I would do it all over again if I had to. i have a new found respect for women who continue the fight to conceive. No one understands but us women going through it. I'm so glad that I found this web site...To those of you still trying, never give up! Well I'll let you all know the results of U/S soon.

Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart!!!! :D


Nicliz: when do you go for your U/S?
