Some bad news...an ultrasound confirmed I lost the baby earlier this week. I chose to induce miscarriage this week so I can get my hcg numbers down as quickly as possible so I can move on to another cycle. With my age of 38, I know this can be common due to egg quality, but it still stings.

So I'll be in for November, most likely. I'll keep you updated.

Congrats!! Have a great pregnancy :)

I'm out for September. The only good news is that it seems my cycle has gone back to regular even with nursing my son still. Bad news is that I have long 35 day cycles... So while I guess I will be an October hopeful I probably won't be able to test til almost November :/

Best wishes to everyone!

I had my blood test this morning and the physician's assistant called this afternoon. It looks like we'll be adding to our family in late May/early June!

It's still very early (4 weeks, 3 days), but this is a good sign and I'm hoping this is a strong little one in there!

IVF does work! I couldn't be more thrilled. Best of luck to all of you still in for the remainder of September and also in to October.

Mommy2Genevieve - I have heard of mini IVF as well but I don't know much about it.

Smatsch - I'm sorry you have been going through this as well. It is a very depressing and long journey sometimes. My insurance won't cover anything fertility related. Most don't, which is so aggravating but they view it as elective. I am right there with you sister with everything, including adoption. I wish you luck as well.

Hi Gwenn,

I totally understand what you are going through. It's been a year and a half for me since we started trying, and it can be pretty depressing and disappointing. I hope your doctor can come up with something for you to try. My insurance won't cover IVF, but I'm afraid that will be our only option with my low ovarian reserve, and that's assuming everything goes well with a surgery to remove the fibroids. Some days I don't know if it would make more sense to try to adopt, but that seems like it can be such a complicated process and can take such a long time. Good luck with your decision.

QTLADY, have you heard of mini IVF? I honestly don't know a lot about it, just that it's a less aggressive approach and has had recent success. I went full on IVF due to my ovarian reserve, but wanted to throw that out there.

I understand both you and your husband's positions. IVF is doable but it is a major commitment and can take a toll, for sure. We have to make jokes about it at our house; it helps us get through.

Thinking of you. I know whatever decision you make is the right one for your family.

Kirsten

Haven't been posting just because it's a constant negative and tired of saying it I guess. I go see my regular gynecologist on the 3rd for my yearly and going to a consult with a specialist on the 12th. I'm considering IVF but I don't know that my husband wants to do it. I'm hoping she can review my information and possibly see something else or do some more testing. Maybe we can try something small. I don't know. I'm pretty much struggling with continuing on. Just depends on what day you catch me.

Today was the day. My embryo has been transferred! Now we wait...

It was actually a really amazing process to watch on the screen. We watched the whole thing and even got a picture of the embryo being shot out of the catheter and into my uterus. We also got another (very enlarged) picture of the embryo.

Today I rest. Thank goodness I have plenty of things to keep me occupied between now and my pregnancy test on the 26th.

My embryo transfer will be next Wednesday. I'm excited! I start progesterone oil on Friday. Those suckers look very large so I'm a little nervous for those injections.

We just have to hope that it's a healthy little embryo!

I'm sorry Aristcat, that is too bad.

I got my HSG test done finally, and it went well, so that's good news. I unfortunately need to start over with a new Gynecologist to hopefully deal with the fibroids because my current doctor is out on leave for three months, and I'm hoping to get a surgery scheduled so that will help my fertility. I have an appointment next week for that, but will likely need a MRI done before they can do any surgery.

Just go my blood test results: BFN. Again. So I'm out.

I decided to really start losing weight now. I'm feeling more balanced now, after a year of acupuncture, so I'm hoping that will help me to stay strong and motivated to eat healthy and work out 3 times a week.

Good luck to everyone still in!

In for September. Hoping to get pregnant in the next few months so my children can be close in age. Just stopped pumping so hoping that will help and this could be the month!

Never had any issues injecting into my stomach/hip area in either of my two (successful) pregnancies, but that doesn't mean other methods don't work too. :)

Interesting! I've been injecting in the stomach, but I'm going to ask my acupuncturist about it as well. Thanks for sharing!

Oh and a little tidbit, for everyone using injectables AND interested in Chinese Medicine:
My acupuncturist strictly forbids me to inject in my stomach, because there are a million meridian crossings in your stomach area, and this can cause problems in her opinion.
So now I only inject in my legs. I know doctors say it doesn't matter. But I just thought you might want to know.

Good luck Kirsten!

I'm doing Gonal-F. Side effects were none so far emoticon

The doctor told met that Clomid works on your ovaries via your brain. And that FSH works on your ovaries directly. Maybe that is why the side effects are much less.

I've done injections before (Pregnyl), so I did't worry about that much. Although I did create a big bruise on my leg, because I accidently moved the needle with one of the injections.. And we have a heat wave at the moment so I'm wearing the shortest shorts and skirts all day, Ah well...

Anyway, I had the IUI done last Wednesday. I did feel a pinch in my right ovary (and cramps the whole day after) just a few minutes after the insemination. Never really felt that before, so I'm hoping that this is a good sign. Would make for incredible timing :)

Fingers crossed!

Good luck to everyone! Thanks Dana! I am still tracking but not really into it. I'm only doing it because my doctor wants me to. I'm now taking 1000mg of Vitamin C and something called Pregnancy Prep as well as Progesterone in the 2nd half, plus my Vit D, Vit E, CoQ10, and Fish oil. My chart was looking pretty good but I'm just waiting to see. I'm 6dpo.

I'm in too for this month! This will be my first IVF transfer. Did the stims last month and hyper-stimulated, so I had to wait until September to transfer my one embryo that made it to day 5. We didn't do testing on it, so I'm hoping it's a healthy little embryo, but there's a 50% chance due to my age that it's not. If not, we'll start our second IVF round. But I'm really hopeful this one is healthy!

ARTISTCAT - are you doing Follistim? I had no side effects with my stim drugs, including Follistim, except being tired, and I think that was more due to the Menopur that Follistim. My RE told me that Clomid is what has the awful side effects, much more so than the injection drugs. And if you haven't done injections yet, I promise you they are not that bad. I'm still injecting now (Lupron) to prepare for my transfer.

Good luck to all of you! I can't wait to hear good news!

Sorry for the long absence! I'm at 10w2d right now with my pregnancy and I have felt sooooo sick compared to last time. With the school year starting back up and a toddler to chase around things have been crazy busy.

Our first OB appointment went well and we saw a tiny healthy baby. Looking forward to our next visit in about a week and a half. From about 5 weeks to 9 1/2 weeks I was so nauseated and sick all the time. It was miserable! Last week I started taking B6 supplements and it has made a HUGE difference. I wish I had started taking it much earlier.

Fingers crossed for everyone in for September. I know many of you have been waiting a long time and I can't wait to celebrate some good news soon!

I'm in for Sept. Trying to decide how much I want to track. DS still isn't sleeping all thru the night so I don't even know how reliable temping would be. Since I'm still nursing and only have had 3 AF since he was born, I have no idea what's going on with my cycle anymore. Oh, and we are moving in a week from NJ to MN.. Lol... I don't know if this will be our month or not!

Best wishes to everyone else though! Chris and Gwenn, I really hope this is your month!! I would be so excited to hear good news from both of you!

Good luck this time, Chris! I looked at a lot of stuff about adoption recently and it was so overwhelming. Not sure if it's the right thing for me or if I just need to look at it another time.

I'm in for September: 4th IUI, with FSH injections this time. I really hope the side effects are not as bad as with Clomid.

Also, we are seriously thinking about registering for adoption. We have been talking about it for quite some time now. We planned to make a decision about that this month.
