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.Neffi211 wrote:Blessed-- wow 14.1! That is a good lining! How much Estrace are you taking? Do you have any spotting at all?
Yay.!!! HOw exciting! I cant wait to hear how it all goes! I will be thinking of you!Sunshine1576 wrote:oh no the gremlins ate my last post, I had all nicely typed so many personals....oh well, here is my best attempt!
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.....
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!leorira11 wrote:Lauren -
(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 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!Sunshine1576 wrote:Only have 10 minutes before heading out to work, but appt went well this morning. Lining is now 9.1 and this is day6 of my cycle along with a follicle now measuring 20. (Yesterday my lining was only around 5 and tha folli was around 16), so alot has grown just over night! 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
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!WeHaveHope wrote:I called my RE's office today to request a copy of the genetic testing on the tissue sample. Honestly, I don't even know why I wanted to see the results. My Re had already discussed the results with me yesterday and he had informed me that our little one had 46 normal chromosomes. 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???
THinking of you. I hope that it is nothing even and I hope that everything is well. I know that it is so concerning and I pray that you are well.bodie1011 wrote:
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.
