Sorry I am such a bad member lately. Last Friday was a 28 and here is today's number and whining comments.

Can you believe it? Not a zero. It was 11.8 and my clinic said with this new lab anything 10 and under is negative. So now I have to go back early next week. My clinic has a donor who they are trying to match me with since she meets all my criteria for a shared cycle. She is due for ER on July 31-Aug 3. I will start BCP tomorrow and go back Monday or Tuesday to redo HCG and all my additional b/w to see if they can find any reason for my miscarriages. Am I pushing it trying to cycle so soon? I turn 45 in July. I just so badly want this baby soon as we all do. I have felt good about trying to squeeze this in as my nurse calls it. My DH is a go too. This is the last try though.

I will try to do personals later.

Christy - thanks for your support. It really helps to have a group that can relate to this anguish.

Christie - I'm so sorry your beta is not 0. I think there is nothing wrong with trying to squeeze another cycle in. I know how the time just keeps moving as we go from one cycle to the next. I pray it can all work out for you.

AFM - not expecting much from today. Not bleeding but my HPTs have all been squinters after the 10 min time frame. Still feeling crampy too. I'm trying so hard keep the faith, but it's not looking good :(

DH - 39

Hi guys. I know I have been MIA. I'm so sorry. I've been reading through all of the posts hi to catch up and it seems I've missed quite a bit. I missed you ladies so much.

Sunshine/Christy: Congrats on your boy! That put the biggest smile on my face
TinaLou: Good luck on your cycle
Blissful: it is so exciting to get new running shoes. I need some myself (Thanks for giving me another reason to shop :D )
Christy: Congrats on your twins. How exciting!
SuzyQ/Christie: Congrats on getting your calendar. As the say in my hometown New Orleans Laissez le bon temps rouler (Let the Good times Roll)
FvRogers/Felicia: You're in my prayers. Praying for a miracle
myLove/Dawn: You are one tough cookie! Always wishing you the best.

AFM: I had my Essure coils put in on 6/25. I couldn't believe hey actually knocked me out for the procedure. The doctor said the she actually placed a coil in each tube. Even the tube that was removed. She said that the removed tube still had enough left to possible cause another ectopic so she wanted to block that one too. I haven't had much pain since the procedure. I have my post-op appointment is on 7/18. My doc said I should only need 2 months to heal then we can start the journey again. I can't wait. So during this waiting period my hubby and I decided to travel a bit. We just came back from Daytona Beach. We had the best time. I really needed that break. This has been a very rough year for me. Now that I'm back I'm going to focus on jewelry making and losing a few pounds.

Hello,

I want to start out saying how happy I am I joined this forum, and seeing how many others are going through the same thing that I am. Anyways I am 24 years old, my husband is 28 and I will be starting my Lupron on the 24th of this month. (I am new at all of these medical terms, so please bare with me). The reason why I have joined is because I am very young I think for having IVF, and I am very emotional and its really hard to talk to family and friends, because no one is going through or have gone through what my husband and I are. Not to mention babies being born all around me, dont get me wrong Im happy for them, but I would rather not know right now. I saw this thread and noticed there are others doing this process the same time I am, and I would love to get into a chat room and have some great conversations and help with feelings. Again I would like to talk with more young women who understand and can relate. I have never had children and my doctor recommanded going straight for IVF, so I havent had anything else really done, except a few little surgeries to make sure everything with my uterus and tubes are good to go.


Thanks to anyone who would be willing to talk with me

Hwilsonfarms: Welcome! We definitely understand what you're going through here. I can definitely understand how it feels when everyone is pregnant around you. Every time I saw a pregnant lady it would bring tears to my eyes. I found this site and everyone was so welcoming. It felt good to know that I was not the only one having to go through this. You have a lot of positives going for you. You're young and best of all the option of in vetro is there for you. So just believe it will work. I'll be praying for you. If you ever need to talk, cry, whatever just do it. We're listening. :D

Hwilsonfarms- welcome to the board. I agree with Kristy- you are very young and have time and egg quality in your favor. I am confident you will be one of our success stories! May I ask why the doctor recommended going straight to IVF? I too went straight to IVF after having tubes removed due to being severely blocked and filled with fluid. But usually most doctors start with some other form of Assisted Reproduction. If you don't want to share you don't need to, just curious.

Kristy- I am so glad you are doing well after your surgery. I know what an emotional process it is and I am excited for you to get under way again.

AFM- My beta finally fell below 5... 2.7 yesterday. So now I just wait for AF. My RE has agreed to transfer my one 5 day morula for free in a medicated cycle. He also wants to roll right into a fresh if its a BFN for me. Meanwhile we have a consultation tonight with Dr. Schoolcraft from CCRM. I am looking forward to hearing his advice.

Hugs and baby dust to you all.

Hey Chris! Yes I did and will ship the one frozen embryo to them. Just waiting on AF to schedule a trip out for our initial work up. So excited and nervous at the same time. Thanks for stalking, I have been traveling on business and haven't been able to update.

How is life as a mother of 2?

Ladies- how are you all doing?!

Suzyq (Christie)- I saw your post tonight and thought I needed to come over here and post that we are still alive. lol I do read but sometimes I don't post and lately I have to admit I have been very bad. Not to say I don't think of the ladies here but it gets hard juggling 2 boards at the same time and away with work/commute 50 hrs takes away some of my downtime, but I'm hoping to go part-time in the next year IF all plays out well. lol that would give me a great excuse to spend more time here. :D We go in tomorrow for the diabetes glucose tolerance test in the morning and it's nearly midnight so I better run but just wanted to stop in and say hello and tell you the support here is where it all started. :D

Hi Ladies...

I have been on this thread twice before. I'm getting ready to do my 2nd FET hopefully in October. I remember most of you from before. I go to my RE in the beginning of next month for my saline sono and blood work. I'm already on bcp for other problems so that's one step down :). I might join you all on fb... No one quiet understands the stress that comes with ivf and I'm getting a little nervous already.....
