Updates?? Where is everybody?

Where is everybody? Any new updates? This board has been so dead lately.


I will be the first to admit that I have not been around as much as I used to be. I was in denial after our miscarriage thinking that we would get pregnant right away and I would'nt have to use the word infertility again! But, AF showed her face last week and we are back to trying clomid. I will be doing another round of 150mg. Taking baby asprin daily, using pre-seed, propping my butt up with a pillow, and using progesterone cream after O. CD6 today so I took my first round of pills last night. Usually O on clomid cd17-18.


I have been super cranky lately with no clue as to why.  Yesterday I heard a song on the radio by Jason Aldean "Laughed Until We Cried" and there is a verse that goes. "Just the other night the baby was crying, so I got out of bed and rocked her awhile, and I held her tight, and told her it would be alright. My mind traveled back to a few years ago, we tried so long we almost gave up hope, and I remember you, coming in and telling me the news. Oh man, we were living, going crazy in the kitchen, we danced and screamed and held each other tight, and laughed until we cried." If you don't know the song, it is a good one. Anyway, I thought about how happy we were when we got our bfp and were laughing and crying and then about how we are back to trying and feeling so defeated....almost giving up hope again. Started balling on the way home. I was able to hold it together until I saw DH and then broke down again and started crying. DH was way confused!!


So, I am an emotional mess right now and the only word I can think of when it comes to trying again this month is "defeated". But, I am trying to hold my head high and look towards the day we get another bfp.


Sorry for my long rant....how is everybody else doing? Where are you in your cycle this month? Doing anything different?

Baby dust, dorkmeetsnerd, that #4 IS IT!!!!


Well after taking the clomid my lining was 2mm...after taking estrace we got it up to 9mm so he was happy to see that and ready to proceed with the IUI...not sure if it kept thickening or what during my 2ww.  However, I'm sure my body just wasn't ready fighting infection and all.

Thanks October!  when do you test?


Today I had my progesterone tested and it seems normal at 10.9.  I was worried that it was low or deficient since my luteal phase was only 10-11 days on average.  With the results, my doc did not think it was necessary to take progesterone supplements but encouraged me to use the cream for now.  so we shall see if the bean will implant and stick.

Good news dorkmeetsnerd!  Sending positive vibes your way the next few days!!


 


I'm on cd15 now with no LH surge yet...using the clear blue easy fertility monitor.  How do you deal with the stress of all of this?  I ended up going to the ER the other night because the last few weeks I had been having chest pains on the left side.  Definitely didn't feel like heartburn and so I went just to be safe.  Everything checked out ok and when I went to my primary dr the next day she said it was probably stress related.  I thought taking a month off from the fertility center would give me a much needed break but it's all I think about.  Sitting in the Dr. office and seeing a woman with a toddler brought me to tears.  :(

my fourth and last IUI was a bust.  So devastating since we did all we could to make this one count.  I just had an appointment with my RE about moving onto IVF.  DH and I made the arrangements to do it two months from now.

Dorkmeetsnerds - I'm so sorry that your last IUI was a bust.  :(  *hugs*  So you'll be doing your IVF cycle in just 2 months?  How exciting!  I know it's a disappointment as well, but I'm truly hoping that this is what will get you knocked up with a sticky bean.  :)


October9 - I just want to send you massive hugs.  I know how you feel.  :(


 


I don't know if any of you still remember me... I stopped posting when I suffered a miscarriage back in December.  I just wanted to post a quick update on me:  I just found out I'm pregnant again!  I'm hoping and praying that this is a sticky baby and will end my fight with infertility.


I'm sending lots of baby dust to all you ttc ladies!

thanks ladies. 


@dodgercpkl,  I'm sorry about the mc in dec but congrats!  fingers crossed that the bean sticks!


I haven't check in a bit because my sister recently just got married.  ANd it was such a  stressful two weeks preparing for the day that I wonder if I'm out for this month (natural) as well. Oh well, I'm just happy it turned out beautiful and that its over.


So we met with the RE and scheduled IVF for July.  In the meantime, DH and I have to get some pre-screening bloodworks and test and attend a seminar on the program.  I'm a little excited and scared at the same time.  I'm still sticking with acupuncture twice a week and a massage once a week.  Its quite an expensive regiment so I had to cut back on other things.  BUt my insurance will only take care of one IVF so I have to make this one count.

Sadly we suffered our 2nd miscarriage over the weekend.  :(  We'll be contacting an OB with our new health care and pushing for whatever tests we can do to see if there is something that could be causing me to have had 2 miscarriages before the 5 week mark.  I'm truly devestated yet again.  :(


@Dork - Fingers crossed and lots of prayers coming your way.
