Hello ladies:

We: yes I was suggesting a skype link up :D I've just read you found out your little one was a boy. Oh mo chroi this is so difficult. Im lighting a candle for him x
Neffi: good luck tomorrow

Blessed: that is such good news. Congratulations :D

Sunshine: oh no that's really stressful for you. I hope when they measure tomorrow they tell you you can hold on. Incidentally why have they suggested so many iuis and not ivf? Could a pharmacy give you a cup? And yes breathe!!

Leorira: yep I was wondering if a skype link would work :D I know from personal experience that the adoption route is hard. Any sign of af?

Gina: I know what you mean but dont worry that you arnt starting yet in terms of the board. You offer really lovely support and hopefully you get some too. This is a very anxious time and I may be wrong but if your thyroid is out of whack that might be affecting your anxiety too?

Julia: yes!!! That's brilliant :D

Kerpupples: thank you that's really nice of you and thank you for your hopeful words. And halloween would be a great
day, being irish im celtic and the whole mystery around samhai /halloween is marvelous and a really powerful day :-)

Afm: tough day because im starting to work with a group of suicidal people and one of them has been treated really badly by a therapist and she has gone from being no risk to high risk. Like everyone I've made mistakes too but not of this magnitude. Tomorrow we have our meeting with the clinic, I presume its to look at next steps. I have a feeling they want me to start again soon but i dont know my beta levels and they arnt done here like they are in the States and no idea when af will come. D&c was only three weeks ago. I think my body needs to come back to normal first. I so miss bei g pregnant.

Leorira - My first two MC were natural pregnancies, so I don't know much about them. The IUI I did, by the first ultrasound they knew something was wrong. All 3x I started heavy bleeding between week 6 and 7 (that would be next week). I see from your signature you have had multiple MC also, and much later. I'm so sorry that had to happen to you. Did you get any answer on why?

WE - hoping you get some answers with the testing.

Julia, Sunshine - hope you get triggered soon. Almost there!

Ninde - sounds like you have some mixed feelings. I hope all goes well with the clinic visit. Good luck!


AFM - Thanks to everyone for your well wishes. I actually had some pink spotting today (mixed with the endometrum) and freaked out but it seems to have stopped, so I am hoping it was nothing. Can't stop running to the bathroom every 30 minutes to check though.

Bodie- I feel your pain. I had an increase in my spotting today (still brown and light) but it still freaked me out! My nurse said not to worry about it.

Leorira-No, I won't have another beta, just the u/s. I'm happy it is on the lucky day 11/11/11 :D Good luck with the foster to adopt. I have good friends that do that here in Seattle. They have three girls, one is adopted and the others are still foster.

Don't have much to say for now.

Maria-I'm thinking of your little boy :cry:

Catch ya later. I'm super cramp and am going to rest before going to class tonight.

Thank you everyone for your kinds words today. I think that the results of the genetic testing just made this whole experience more surreal to me. I'll neve understand why an otherwise healthy pregnancy went wrong. I guess all I can do is pray for our little boy now and for our other little one/s that we will never know. I was torn today about telling DH that the results of the genetic testing revealed that we were having a boy. Bit in the end, he is my best friend and as painful as it was I had to tell him. We both held each other for a long time. Now we will wait for the date to have the hysteroscopy and endometrial biopsy. My IVF nurse told me today that possibly November 18th but that it all depended on getting a zero Bets on Monday. Then we will have the blood drawn to do the RPL Panel. Hopefuly all of the tests will reveal something.

Ninde-I have never skyped before and don't have a web cam. Don't even know how to use one but I think my iPhone may have a skype app. I would love to be able to actualy speak to some of the friends I've made on this board. Any suggestions?

With love,

HELP!! After 2 days my lining is barely thicker. It went from 6.55 to 6.84. Why?? I'm so upset and confused. During our last cycle it got to 15. They won't up my meds. They just keep saying that it is a waiting game. I'm getting nervous that it's never going to get thick enough and we will have to cancel this cycle.

I don't know what to do or what to think.

Hello everyone, I'm back from vacation, rested and ready to take on the Minnesota winter.

We- It took me a while to catch up on everything that has happened. I'm glad you did the testing and now know who you are praying for. I can't imagine how hard this is for you and your DH, I hope they find out what's going on with you.

Adelkp- I can't believe all this happened to you. What a nightmare X2. I wish there was something I could do or say to ease your pain. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Blue- congrats on your BFP!

Leora- I wish adoption was easier, I'm not sure why it's so hard and expensive for loving parents to be matched to children who need them. Doesnt make sense. Hope AF is here soon!

Sunshine- good luck with your IUI this month. Lets hope you get lucky and don't need IVF! Did you apply for the attain program yet?

Fvrogers- COngrats on your little one! Must have been nice to see him or her. Because of the PGD do you already know the sex?

AFM- I had my official US yesterday and saw two healthy heartbeats. We are very excited the EDD is around May 20th since there are two, 6/11 if there had only been one. It will be nice to have them out before it gets to hot. I am a little nervous about a twin pregnancy since there are more compications for mom and babies so I have decided to deliever at a level one hospital with a NICU. I haven't told my girls yet, will probably wait until Christmas.

Good luck with everything this week.

becca, I wish I could give you some insight, but I do know with progesterone suppositories it will help increase the lining making it nice and fluffy. Why they wait until after the procedure to start progesterone I have no idea, but you will see within time that everything will work out!

Ninde, Sorry you are having a rough time with the high risk patients, it must be emotional at times but I know you make a difference in their well-being. I hope your next cycle can kick off soon, staying busy as you do will certainly help but also take care of you and give yourself some R&R too. Thanks for the advice today...I'm praying for my sanity, but I hope by now we've worked out the fine details. Not to thrilled about giving myself a shot tomorrow, I'm much too nervous but dh will be in class and I've already asked him to take Friday morning off so he can make the long commute to deliver his goods. My clinic did call back wanting me to come back in tomorrow before work so I'll definately remember the cup this time don't think a mayanaise jar would do! Anyway I'm losing my mind with a warp sense of humor. I hope I make it for Friday's IUI, this will make the 4th day in a row to the clinic this week! Dh will be spending Thursday night in a hotel room, we've found from past experiences that the samples aren't as good if his part is done in the clinic. I will be driving over around 10:30 Friday for our last IUI. My new doctor wanted to try at least 4 iuis before moving back into IVF with us, it's less invasive and a WHOLE lot less expensive to say the least since insurance covers nada.

Thanks Kat, I am still waiting for a phone call from IVF Attain, but I def need to follow up on this before the holidays. Glad you had a good trip, welcome back and it's going to be a BIG Christmas for you and dh this year! Surprising the girls will be fun! I hoope you continue to progress well along all the way through!

Leoria- lol too funny! My mom is coming next week so I will be cleaning away. I have a great boss at work and she was really trying to calm me down today, she asked me who is in control and she talked to me for a while before I headed home tonight. She suggested that I clean too, defiantely takes the mind off of fertiltiy treatment. One of the other girls suggested a nice long soak but then she said maybe that might not be good. She knows I worry about the water getting too hot and I love hot baths but trying not too. I'm thinking a nice massage or ANYTHING to soothe my mind to help me get through this.... My next steps will be IVF for sure if this cycle doesn't work but we shouldn't think that far ahead yet it might make my head hurt.

kerpuppies- And a spooky baby on Halloween is waiting for you and it sounds like you are right on track! :D

Julia, congrats on triggering tonight, which reminds me that besides the cup he needs, I hope to remember to get the nurse to draw us a bullseye for the hcg trigger tomorrow night. I cannot wait to be in the 2ww with you!

AFM: Back to the clinic for my final SnS before Friday's IUI. Praying that these follies continue to grow and we deal with a less stressful day.

Thanks. I am so happy that it is moving right along. I am taking 2mg pills three times a day. I started i pill 1 time a day for 4 days, 1 pill 2 times a day 4 days, then 2 pills 3 times a day untill saturday, then I decrease back to 1 pill 2 times a day. I have had no spotting but almost like AF cramps. I thought that i might start but nothing ever came. :D

AFM: So I got home from my appt feeling better and took another bath to reshave my legs and hope I would get lucky tonight. One way or another I planned on something exciting happening tonight, but as I'm getting dressed I get a phone call from my nurse who tells me to continue on with the follistim shot and come back in tomorrow. I was like what?!? This is day5 what's going on (my visits are usually every other day). She said sometimes things happen pretty fast because I have a leading follicle at 16 and she said I may be triggering TOMORROW NIGHT! omg!!!!!!This is happening way too fast, my lining was only at 5.3 today and we only have two decent follicles compared to last IUI w/ seven! I had thought we would reduce the med so I could cycle longer, but nope it's not looking that way. So please pray that I can at least hold out until the weekend. I'm not too happy with dh since I know it's been over 7+ days since he last released. Anyway, I ran to my local CVS and stocked up on ovuation predictors, so we will see.....
Yay.!!! HOw exciting! I cant wait to hear how it all goes! I will be thinking of you!

(other big news today - we submitted our paperwork for a foster-to-adopt agency. Adoption of a healthy baby is incredibly difficult and rare here - most kids are not healthy (ie, Down's syndrome or other disabilites) or older (usually 5y+) - and foster-to-adopt might be a different way to adopt a healthy baby. I'm TERRIFIED of fostering a baby and then having that baby taken back to the family of origin later, but they tell us that babies placed for foster-to-adopt are rarely not adopted. This is still an incredibly long road -- we could wait years -- but we are starting the process. I do think that we will have a mixed family (some kids biological and others adopted) because I don't know how many more IVFs/pregnancies I can handle.)
That is awesome that you are moving right along. Congrats on moving forward with adoption. I think that it is great that you and Dh are such loving people that you are going to open your home and love to another child that is not biologically yours! THat is awesome and I love to hear that is your plan. I am thinking of you as you go down both paths! Good luck and I will be thinking of you!

I'm panicking b/c like I said this is only day6 and there are 3 follies measuring 12 so I really want them to catch up before the IUI. Nurse think I'll be triggering either tonight or tomorrow. I got home and realized I didn't ask for a specimen cup, (my clinic is 2.5 hours from home) like I said this is all happening so fast! Be back this evening to calm down and check up on everyone. Must remember to breathe.... Christy
That is awesome that you may be triggering today or tomorrow! That is awesome and I cant wait to hear what happens! I will be thinking of you! God is amazing and his timing is amazing. I will be thinking of you and DH and I will be praying and thinking of you both! Good luck! :D

So the plan is to do the RPL Panel and an hysteroscopy with endometrial biopsy. But anyways, I asked them to fax me the results. The results say "46 XY Normal Chromosomes". Our little on was a boy. Why do I do this to myself???
I am so sorry. My heart is breaking for you! I think that we want to know because the questions continue to haunt us. I am so sorry. I am praying for you and I am thinking of you both. I pray that they get some answers for you soon!
