Yes I did and thank you! That helped a lot! I was mostly worried about some reviews I saw online about the nurses and doctors not being so friendly but looked around at much older post on here and saw lots of good stuff! I'm just feeling so anxious that it gives me anxiety at how long my wait is!

Before an RE will see you, will they want my Thyroid and all blood work to be where it should be? Once I make it to that point I don't want anything holding the process back when it comes to that.

Hey! Sorry I went MIA. Been very busy with work and family. Seems there are never enough hours in a day!

Been having nightmares that I am starting to bleed, and such losing the baby. I tell you, I am nervous about it but DAMN! I hate these dreams. Kept me up all night! WEHAVEHOPE - I am beginning to feel like you - lack of sleep is annoying!!!! :x I think it doesn't help that I have been having isolated pain in my lower right side. Thought I was going to die Saturday. It comes and goes...but is only one side. Probably why I am having those crazy dreams!

Have a great week ladies!

blessed - So happy to hear you finally got AF. Hooray!

sunshine and stars - (((hugs))) I am so, so sorry for your horrible news. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Ninde - Thinking of you and hoping that you will have a new plan soon. I think you are most welcome on this board, even if you don't know when you'll start another cycle. I completely understand… the mourning after a miscarriage is very much about all of the hopes and dreams you have for your LO, often moreso than the physical loss itself - I think after waiting so long to become pregnant there is so much tied up in just the idea and the dream of the child. I hope you have brighter days ahead in the very near future.

We - Thinking of you today and looking forward to some wonderful news!

Leora - To answer your question from a while back, I won't be going with DH for his trip, unfortunately. It looks like I am going to have to master Cetrotide on my own this time around! I hope you are having a wonderful time with your family.

--
I went to the clinic to get a bunch of blood drawn today (9 tubes…fun!) because it has been well over a year since I did all of that good stuff initially and it needs to be updated before this next IVF (CBC, HIV test, Rubella & CMV titers, bleeding time test, electrolytes, TSH etc…all the usual). While I was there I picked up and filled most of my prescriptions. It was nice to do something concrete to feel like I am moving forward.

I did notice that my new RE prescribed a lower dose of progesterone than what I was on for past IVFs and I also noticed that he did not prescribe estrogen for the luteal phase. My previous clinic would prescribe estrogen for the luteal phase regardless of whether it was a fresh or frozen transfer, so I guess this just must be a difference in practice. Also, I noticed he only prescribed a 1/2 dose of the amount of hcg I usually use to trigger. Now I guess I have a few questions for him. I just want to make sure we do everything to ensure that I have enough embryos to make it to a blastocyst transfer and to give me enough luteal support.
me: 28, DH: 36 dx: unexplained
IUIs #1-6 = 5 BFNs and 1 loss
#1 IVF = BFN
#2 FET = BFN
#3 FET = BFN
#4 IVF = BFP, Naava and Aminadav, born and died @19w5d on 3/7/12 due to pPROM
