i'm so grateful 2 be on this board with such great supportive ppl :) thanx a lot 4 all ur kind words :) i chilled down & thought of how much i luv my DH & wouldn't trade him 4 the world :) a successful marriage is much more than having a child i guess, it's mainly about love & standing by each other thru thick & thin & i can't imagine being with anyone else other than my DH esp. that he's so good 2 me & i've known him for 10 yrs before we got married & we were best friends in the very beginning :) we were college sweethearts afterward :):):) & i also realized that i'm depressed about other things like my weight gain & how hard it'll b 2 lose all the weight again (i lost 25 kgs before the ICSIs & gained it all back now - depression , no exercise , comfort eating & ICSI medication) & i'm also stressed about my job (an abusive boss) which i'll probably quit in a couple of months & chill @ home till i find something else (maybe even focus on losing weight & just having fun a bit , building up my self esteem again) :) anyway , we decided 2 try a different route with male infertility doctors then another ICSI ....... but we're on a break from all that crap now .........so just wish us luck :) and best of luck 2 all u wonderful ppl out there :) babydust 2 us all! :)


Y_ghazaly – I am so happy that you have come to your decision about your DH. If he is there for you like you say and you love him, everything else will work itself out. If you are working on losing weight and are having problems, maybe you should get your thyroid checked out because if your thyroid is functioning too low it will be almost impossible to lose weight but there are medications like Synthroid that will have will help.

I think it is a good idea to concentrate on losing weight and maybe finding a new job while taking some time off from the IVF rollercoaster. I wish you good luck!

Angela- if they give me the meds I would still need a D&C? Actually they called mine a D&E for excavation or evacuation...I forget. But I was hoping I would just take meds and that would be it. Well if I need that they better be putting me to sleep for it.

Lauren - So they are going to do a D & E for you instead of a D & C. Sometimes it is better for them to just do that to make sure they get everything. You don't want to be like me... after I delivered Ashley they didn't do a D & C and I still had part of the placenta and several fibroids in my uterus and I definitely felt it.

Please update us as you progress. I am wishing you the best!

angela - Still don't know the results... but I guess if I have NO symptoms maybe it's good news? No mussle pains or flu or anything?

I am sorry about the ride home but glad you made it. And also about the very good news with your Synthroid result. that is one other problem out of the way. funny how it seams easier to cross out the problems as they go away then to right them down as they come :)

natakia - oh dear... it's good your beta is so good so you don't have to worry too much about the spotting. I think your friend is right and there is nothing to worry even though it is scary. Brown is never a worry so try and relax dear.

I know the wait is killing you but it's true they would not see anything at this point dear. Your dh sounds so happy, confident and supportive. I am so glad you have someone like that to comfort you girl!!

Lauren - I am sorry things are such in limbo... I think the meds would NOT change what is happening... I think if the baby was growing properly he would still be doing ok. But the unknown is terrible and so sad and hurting. I hope you find out what is happening soon. Too bad they can't tell about ectoptic right away like with u/s or something? Sorry dear.

amanda - yes my oldest DD is a teen. She was really bad a couple of years ago but I am hoping her turning 17 this year will help her mature a bit. Me when I got ot my sister it's funny they are great with each other and serve each other drinks and me (the guest) don't even get offered a drink can you believe it?? Just like I am NOT even there!!! So why bother!!

No I never saw the falls... silly though. They are a bit far from us... I crossed Canada but on the main hwy not towards the fall. I guess I should take the kids at some point!! So you are going to Hawaii wow what a nice trip this is going to be. I can't wait to hear all about it :) have fun.

y_ghazaly - glad you found your smile again and happiness with your dh. I also worked hard on loosing weight after I gave birth last time and it really helped in my self estime and happiness ... if you can you should try it. I don't have time to exercise so I just do the healthy food selection (like not too much bread, pastas, greesy foods etc) and it works. I used to track my weight everyday and I would loose from .5 to 1 lbs a day so it's really encouraging. And it takes no time at all. And specially with an abusive boss we all tend to eat more so it is not your fault dear. I think that would really help your uptimistic and weight if you left that job. Good luck with everything and keep us posted.

AFM - we are not yet out of the old place and the landlord went over and saw we were not finished. We have the place until SAturday so they are bitching about it. They treaten us NOT to refund us our last month's rent if we don't put the place like a show home for sale... well sorry lady but it's not the way we got the place to start with... you should have seen the letter my dh wrote to them :) He is good when he has a cause to fight !!!

So hopefully I will get my Fifth desease results today so I can stop worrying.

have a good day everyone.

hi everyone :)

i have a question which i hope will have an answer here.......... has anyone tried 2 get an icsi done after a live sperm was extracted from the testis? my dh & i r suspecting that he might suffer from testicular amyloidosis which causes the sperms 2 die or just stop it's production all together .............it has no cure or meds, all i can do is get a biopsy & extraction done 2 find out if there r any good ones left:( .............any hope??

I do not have any experience with it but I think it would be smart to post your question as a new topic under the IVF forum and ask Ghost (who I think is an Embryologist at a fertility clinic). What his/her thoughts are on the subject. There might also be some ladies out there who have experienced IVF cycles w/ ICSI and can answer your question. I wish you good luck!

Soooo....my ET was 5/4 by Monday 5/10 I was back at the Dr with severe pain. I could barely walk. To make a long story short I had a severe case of Ovarian Hyperstimulation. My ovaries are huge and on Friday 5/14 I had a Tap done where they removed 2liters of fluid. Well on a good note I got a BFP on 5/10 and my numbers doubled by 5/13. I have to schedule an U/S for 1st week of June. My Dr gave me a due date for January 21. Does anyone know how your due date is calculated? Is it from your LMP or day of Fertilization? :mrgreen:

Congrats Nicliz!!!!!!!

2liters of fluid omg are you ok girl??? boy that is terrible. But I am so soso very exited about your BFP... that is amazing. How exiting and your u/s is going to be so soon... you are a lucky girl. Way to go girl... they calculate the due date by the LMP but you can also find it online by different ways like O time and transfer time etc.

Waiting4GodsMiracle - I knew when you said that you developed hyper stimulation that you got your BFP because it was causing your ovaries to produce more progesterone and HCG ... congratulations!!!! I just wish it was less painful for you!

When calculating your due date, you have to take in consideration your ER date. There are several websites that you can Google and put in your LMP or ovulation and you can count your ER as your ovulation period.

I can’t wait to hear about your u/s in June!!!
