Aw Greekchick- I'm so sorry. I really hoped you would get a BFP. My RE says it's best to wait one cycle inbetween stim cycles. Good luck at your wtf appt. I hope your doctor is encouraging.

GreekChick, I jumped on the board early this morning just to hear from you. Awww, I'm really sorry that this IVF didn't work, sometimes it takes a few times before the doctor can figure out the best protocal taylored just for you. This is why you shoud hang in there, have trust in thee and stay strong! You are surrounded by so many that understand exactly what you are going through and you certainly have spirit to stay with it. "Anything worth having in life- is not meant to be easy."

Margi...WOOOHOOOO!!! CONGRATS ON TWINS!!! I knew it! LOL :wink:

Greekchick...Sooo very very sorry. Hang in there! Big Hugs!

AFM: More bad news. Apparantly, there IS a cap on my insurance, my docs office was told wrong (remember me mentioning this before, I let it go, and kept my mouth shut). My insurance allows...4 cycles after a take home baby...I've had 5. Insurance is looking into whether I am going to be responsible for the 5th cycle...they said to allow 30 days for review. I did hear from a friend who has the same insurance/job...that if the doc writes a letter you can get a 5th cycle...so the 5th one may end up covered, but I doubt I'll get a 6th one now. I think God is trying to tell me something. All of this went down within 1 hr yesterday...the insurance info and the cancellation call. Perhaps almost losing the Ganerilix was God's way of saying..."enough already." I have a feeling we are done...completely done. Thank you everyone for all of the support you have given me over the years...I will be around from time to time to cheer you all on. You cant get rid of me that easy. xoxo :cry:

Greek Chick: Hang in there . . . BFN's are awful, but your BFP could happen next cycle! I had a BFN my first cycle . . . think of your first cycle as a science experiment . . . now your RE will learn a lot about you from the first cycle, will make some changes, and hopefully, you'll get your BFP second time around . . . that's what happened to me!

Tammy: Insurance woes . . . ugh . . . hope it all gets resolved in your favor soon . . . seems like you got a PMA about everything . . . good for you =)

Greekchick- I am so sorry I was hoping this was your BFP, this is such a rollercoaster .... I am glad that you are looking forward though that is the only way we can get through it... Maybe we will be cycling together in 2 mths... (huge hugs)

Tammy - crap, crap, crap, I'm so sorry you got cancelled. I really do hope that you have an opportunity try again but if you're not able to, can absolutely understand why. :(

Greekchick - so sad to her your news. Give yourself some healing time and then perhaps I'll see you on the April/May board. :cry:

Margi - woooooooooooooohoooooo! Yay for you. Fantastic news on your twins. You. Must be stoked. :D

AFM - DH and I had our geneticist appt on Tuesday. She is fairly certain that our little baby boy, nicknamed 'Mork' had a rare syndrome called Meckel-Gruber syndrome. It's a genetic disorder and is recessive - both parent are carriers. Because it's recessive there's a 1:4 chance of it recurring. It is a lethal condition i.e. Unsurvivable. Our poor baby had grossly enlarged kidneys, liver problems, undeveloped lungs, hydrocephaulus, an underdeveloped cerebellum (rear of brain), cleft palate, shortened limbs and bowlegs.

Testing is a waste of space because it has been associated with at least 7 genes and you would need to test all genes to get a definitive diagnosis. The cost is horrendous i.e. 1000-2000 euros per gene. The hospital will only fund one gene test. DH and I are both on the same wavelength. We would like to continue with IVF and take our chances. MGS is detected at ultrasound so I would want to be very closely monitored if I fall pregnant again. Diagnosis can be as early as 10 wks but more commonly in 2nd trimester.

It's all a bit scary but we have some closure and have reasons for Mork's condition.

DH and I have an appt with our RE next week to discuss moving forward. I don't think PGD will be an option as we don't have a spare $30-40,000 NZ dollars to fund it. Looks like we'll be throwing a 4-sided dice! The reassuring thing is I've been through giving birth to a baby with sever abnormalities before, and as awful as it was, I know I'm strong enough to do it again. The benefits out way the risks in my eyes.

Tess - Hope you are doing ok with your news I am sure that was very difficult to hear and you are right after all you have been thru it has made you incredibly strong & able to get thru anything

Tammy - UGH...this whole process is hard enough without having to deal with the damn insurance companies!

Greekchick - It sounds like you are moving on and pumping up your PMA for your next cycle....I will be stalking you on the April/May board & praying for your sticky BFP!

Margi - Same goes for you I will be stalking you! Take care of those Cali babies for me can't wait to watch your progress thru your perfect uneventful pregnancy!

AFM - Had WTF appt today.....RE has little to say not sure why this keeps happening I have had every test in the book and as far as everything is concerned I am perfect (haha) anyways he is giving me next two cycles for 50% off so that was nice & will give me as many deals or whatever he can on meds.....we have appt at CCRM in CO a week from Tuesday to see if they have any other answers so we are just in a holding pattern. He did say he could get me in on the May cycle but we are not ready I think the soonest we will be ready will be July or August I need some fertility free time more importantly my family needs some fertility free me time!
