As if the escapades of my journey couldn't get any more crazy....

I called my OB today because I haven't heard back from the Endo about setting an appointment and I haven't heard about my lab results that were taken a week ago today. Usually it's about 2-3 days. Nurse called me back to tell me she has put in another call to the Endo office and she will find out about the labs because they weren't showing up in her computer either. So, she calls me back and the lab (LabCorp - blech!) has no record of me having any lab work done. :omg: So, I've called the lab, but they never answer their phone and they never check messages. So, I'm just curious what happened to the vials of blood they took from me. :doh:

I will call my nurse back tomorrow to ask her to just fax me new orders and then hopefully get over to LabCorp (which again, not even one in my town. I have to drive 15 miles, thanks insurance.) tomorrow and have new labs drawn because we cannot get on the October treatment cycle until we have these labs back. Oye this is becoming difficult.

Good News!!

My blood work was found. My TSH is down to 1.70 which is great. My Free T4 is a bit elevated (1.8 and the "normal" range goes to 1.77). So, I called the RE and gave them the report. They called back and said we are cleared for an October cycle! Yay! So, after having to sit out for a couple cycles, we are back on. Hopefully, this will be a successful cycle and we won't have to continue to stress.

I did call the endocrinologist's office on Friday because for almost 3 weeks I have been waiting to hear from them about an appointment since my records had been faxed over. Earliest they can get me in - December 8th. :doh: I'm so over doctors making such little priority to get new patients with pretty serious issues in.

Hey Danielleh- baby is good, thanks for asking!! I'm scheduled for a growth ultrasound in two weeks to make sure he's not getting too big from the diabetes. I can't wait to see him again! I'll be 26 weeks tomorrow. At the moment I'm debating weather to ask for a booked csection or to try and have a vaginal delivery. I have some anxiety or labour/delivery. I've seen a lot of complications where I work, and although I know a csection is a major surgery with its own risks, I find myself leaning towards that option (well its only an option if I can convince my OB to schedule it)!! Aside from the anxiety (and the constipation, lol) pregnancy has been the best experience I could have hoped for. I love feeling my little man move around in there it's so reassuring. Everyone says as he gets stronger I'll feel differently but I think it's such an amazing feeling and it helps me know he's OK in there!! It's funny when I'm having an especially anxious moment because he hasn't moved in awhile he always seems to know and give me a little nudge <3. We're any of you ladies that have been through this as anxious as I feel?!! I'm not sure if it's from working in the field I work in and knowing of pretty much every single complication that could arise, or if it stems from years of infertility and wanting this so bad, or if it's just a normal part of pregnancy!!

Anyways enough about me!! How is everyone else!!

So this thread is pretty much dead,lol!! But I just wanted to check in and see if anyone had any new or exciting updates?!! I'll be 31 weeks tomorrow! Everything is going g fairly well. At 28 weeks baby was measuring right on schedule in the 50th percentile. I go for another growth US in a week and a half. My sugars have been good, and they have just decreased me from 7 sugar checks a day to 3-4.

Hope you all are doing well!!

Hi ladies - sorry i have been MIA

BOTB - I'm glad all is going well! It seems so fast to me :) good news about the reduced sugar checks I'd ay that is a relief! I hope everything keeps going smoothly for you now.

Zaney - how are you doing? Did you TSH regulate enough for another cycle? I hooe BFP is right around the corner for you. FX and sending lots of positive thoughts!

Danielle & Moblina any news? I hooe all is good with you both and Manolo and Andrew xx

AFM - i have been going by 'if you don't have anything good to say don't say anything at all' as i have been quite down :( I am waiting for a lap & dye date (plus or minus D&C) which will either be in Dec or Jan, we are going travelling in mid january so it might even be after we get back. DH has an SA on Monday and i have been put on progesterone now during my LP on a support dose that i take til 14dpo then stop. It made me insomniac and phantom pregnant last cycle lol but my pms was better on it. Nothing else to report. BFN AF BFN 'unexplained' blah blah everyone is having babies.. 3 friends announced in the last week.yey!

Well, as of September 12 my TSH was down to 1.7! Woo hoo! Blood draw on Monday showed TSH at 4.0. Ugh! We are in the middle of an IUI cycle right now, I got in to see an endocrinologist on Friday, thanks to my RE calling in a huge favor. My meds have been increased again, so hopefully that helps.

Friday's scan (after completing Femara) showed 2 follicles on the right (18mm and 12mm) and then 7 less than 10mm. Left side has one (15mm) and 5 less than 7mm. I go back Monday and they told me to plan to trigger on Monday and IUI on Tuesday.

DH has been on Clomid for his testosterone. His dose was increased to 50mg/day from 25. We also added Vitamin E with it this last month. Blood work last week showed his testosterone up to 501, from 230. So, we have our fingers crossed for this cycle.

Oh Zaney i hope your TSH gets it's act together for babymaking! But otherwise that sounds like great news with follicle count etc. FX for you. Please check in and let me know how you get on this week. I'm sorry I've been so quiet here i really am rooting for you xx

Hi All! Any news?

Zaney how was the IUI? Hope all is well? FX :luck:

All good here. I'm hoping for a call from my consultant's office today about a date for surgery. Other than that nada... although i think i might have ovulated yesterday without a positive opk which is frustrating. I've been testing twice a day since CD12. Oh well i will see what my temp does tomorrow.

Hope you're all doing ok xx

The IUI was, meh. I didn't have my usual nurse, so I didn't get any information really, it was quite disheartening. She did say that DH's count was still quite low and "while not impossible - highly unlikely". She didn't even want to schedule me for blood work, just said to test on my own and call if I get a positive. :(

I guess I should have also stated that I went in Monday for my last scan and trigger only to discover that I O'd. I had been taking OPK's since Friday when I went in and had all "low" readings, even on Monday morning.

I may not even test unless I feel any type of symptoms or anything. I've got another 6 days to wait in my TWW.

Danielleh- Yes it's getting closer to baby time! I can't wait!! I'm getting so anxious. I'm pretty sure I've been having some BH contractions, they get bad when I stand to do anything so I'm chilling on the couch as much as I can!!
