Hello everyone! I had another ultrasound today and everything looks good. 4 strong heartbeats still!!!! My RE realeased me and now I need to find a High Risk Dr. Wasn't ready for that one. I need to do my research and find one ASAP! I have been feeling sick everyday, pretty much all day!!! My boobies are sore, but not too bad. Mostly at night for some reason. Certain smells really get to me. But it's all worth it and I have been wanting to feel like this for a long time! I just hope it doesn't last too much longer. :) Sounds like everyone is doing well and everything is moving along for everyone!! Great news!!!

RMB, I've been thinking about you, glad to hear your sweet babies are doing well! G/L with the obgyn, I also feel it's kind of early for a change too, but I know it's going to fall perfectly right into place for you, you would be surprised by asking around for referrals. That is how I found the best obgyn several of the girls I work with recommended him. For my yearly checkup he recommended the IVF Attain program with a way to finance everything and gave me a brochure to a new clinic. He's the "best of Bay", told him I cannot wait for him to deliver our baby someday. He said I look forward to working with you, I laugh because we know he had to be professional. But when you find the perfect RE you will just know it, and I truly wish you all the best! Sunshine1576

Hi Girls! Sorry I disappeared for a bit. It looks like all is going well. I'm going to have to catch up on what's new and who's new!

RMB- So wonderful to hear all those heartbeats. GOOD LUCK finding a high risk dr.

AFM- Saw the RE yesterday for our follow up planning. We are a go for a frozen transfer cycle. I will start a birth control pill protocol when AF starts. I can't believe it takes so long! It feels like forever. I requested not to use the Lupron because of the risks of making my MS crazy. I will do 5 weeks of bcp then start estrogen patches. If all goes on schedule then we are looking at the transfer happening at the end of September. AF should come around the 1st of Aug, then the 5 weeks of bcp, then 2 weeks of estrogen patches.

I got some blood testing done after talking with her about the possible autoimmune factor. She ran the antithyroid antibody, anticardiolipin antibody, and lupus anticoagulant. I should have those results in a couple of days. She is on the fence about needing to remove the endometrioma and says the data is unclear as to if it causes any risk to implantation. She did say she thought for sure I was going to get a bfp this cycle and was stunned when it didn't work. My lining as above 8 so it was within the ok range, not great, but enough. Everything looked great. Hopefully everything will look great with this next go. We will probably transfer 2 and have 1 left for a future cycle.

So it looks like I will ride the summer out and slip into an autumn group!

blueeyedreamer- Glad you have a plan set in place. Autumn will be here before we know it and I know you will be in good company...What would I give to determine our true diagnosis. Sometimes I feel we are in the dark and so determined to make this work. Dh said he really knows what I want for my birthday. I told him to wrap up the IUI plan with a bow on top. I'm in such denial that today is my last day being 34 years old...I certainly don't feel it, but pray my ovarian reserve is ok.
