Ty Courtney,Banana.
Banana,I wish you good luck!!I completely understand ur husband's feelings bcs I was the one with problems and my husband was ok....infertility sucks but you have to keep fighting that is the key to success.
After all the tests are completed and you have a diagnosis do your own research before starting something,you always have to speak up for yourself,time is important for you two,iui,Ivf with your own eggs after 40 has a low success rate,even if your ovarian reserve might look good the quality can be bad.
Pls don't think I'm saying all this to put you down in any way i just spent aaaalooot of time researching these stuff and im part of an Ivf group with all sorts of diagnoses and we share,doctor's opinions,plans,advices etc ,I like to share my "knowledge "
I do hope you won't need nothing of this sort and you will get ur bfp natural.If you have not had an hsg yet you should get one in case your doctor recommends IUI,lots of women have gotten pregnant after the hsg,sometimes the tubes just need a "wash"

Do you guys consider the second and third positive, or just the third?

Natural or with help, any way I can get there. I had my HSG a few weeks ago. I'm pretty sure it cleared out some cobwebs because it took convincing to push its way through the tubes. I know that my window of fertility is getting smaller by the cycle. I'm doing everything in my power to make it happen. I post from the bathtub where I'm preparing myself to attack DH. He doesn't stand a chance.

Danaa - I did a jump on to see your bump and hear the news on your... boys!!! congrats and you look beautiful ---
Loz - sorry to hear of your OHSS. Danaa had to deal with that and me too (which is why they never even let me try to prep for a fresh transfer).

Hope everyone is doing well. I'm kind of NTNP/trying to time things LOL

Danaa:Congrats on your baby boy! You look lovely! I miss having a baby bump...So cute!!

Nickysy: So happy you are enjoying yourself and not letting this tww drive you bonkers. This week is going to fly by.

Banana: Men handle things so internally. What did Shrek say? "Layers". He has to work his way to the core of it to get to a place where he isn't blaming himself and he can feel comfortable going forward however you to need to based on test results. Give him time. He is hurting as much as you are sweety :hugs: I don't think for a second he has stopped caring either. Some nights my husband told me 'no' for home insemination and I would almost explode. Just would be too tired from work. My thoughts were we already can't get pregnant and you have the nerve to be tired??? I've got one egg with your name ALL over it and now it's going to die because of your selficiousness. (Those were my thoughts at least) Once I calmed down, I realized I can't force anything to happen. It will in it's own time. Hurts, banana but at least we still feel...So gotta keep going. Think of this time as a pause while he collects his thoughts. :hugs:

EOE HUGS

AFM: On my cell so I can't post a pic of my kitty till later. I'm 8dpo, do not feel pregnant, fever is gone, temp is lingering up there but has been in the low to high 97s during my awake hours which is pre O temps for me. I'm trying not to let this get me down as I already know I have issues with getting preggers. On the 19th I have another scan to see what's up as well as to speak with the actual OB but man I don't know if I care for their practice. She seems hard to get to and they should have been doing more months ago. I don't know. I might go back to my old OB and just ask to be put on Clomid and progesterone.... lol.

I'll see for now I want to enjoy the rest of the weekend. HUGS

Hi ladies,
Just had a second ultrasound and chatted with the nurse about the results of my last blood test and the ultrasounds.
Egg collection is schedule for Wednesday. I have 23 follies over 10mm, 17 over 15mm, but only 6 that are actually ready to go right now. So it's not great news - OHSS and not even many decent follies. They have changed my trigger shot and just waiting at the pharmacy to pick up the new one.
Just hoping it's enough to at least get a couple of good quality embryos that survive the freezing process. Trying to stay positive. My oestrogen was not too high, it was 3200, but anything over 3000 is a concern.

Banana, just realised I had not answered your question. In a freeze all cycle, instead of doing a fresh embryo transfer a few days after they collect the eggs, they freeze all the embryos. Then I wait for my period, then take a month off on the pill to regulate my hormones, then do 2 weeks on the letrozole to get my body to mimic ovulation, they they do an embryo transfer. So it's a much more delayed process, it just means instead of potentially being pregnant this month or next, it's at least 2 months, and that's only if everything goes well!

Loz girl no wonder you were in pain,don't be worried about the actual numbers, those other follie can catch up in no time.Stock up on Gatorade and lots of proteins.
Have they adjusted the dosage during this period?
Lots of women suffering from pcos had the same problem as you,too many follies and they didn't grow as expected.
Mine was over 5000 :)) and the doctor was worried I think ur good with ur 3200.
Remember you only need one good egg for one good embryo.
Edit I think you have more than 6 mature follies bcs every follie gives like 300-400 of f Estrogen,sometimes the ultrasound misses some follies,I know of few ladies who got a huge surprise at the egg retrieval .

Ty ladies!!
Im great full and thankful for my babies and the fact that we afforded IVF,I know so many couples who can't afford it and is heartbreaking.
Im incredibly happy to see my husband proud and happy,seeing him this happy makes me think that if we wouldn't have gotten pregnant he wouldn't have had the chance to experience this joy....thinking that I could've have "robed" him of this experience makes me sad.
Anyway I'm ranting:))
Faith hugs I hope you feel better soon and your doctor will slow you to start clomid and progesterone.
Fly I hope Remy is not keeping you too busy.
Star good luck!!!And Im praying so hard for you to be the next one getting pregnant.
Eoe hello:)

Hey Dana, thank you. I feel much better now, you have been such a great IVF guru for me!! They didn't change the dose, I had my last gonal f and orgalutran today. My triggers are tonight and then collection 34 hours later, so no more meds tomorrow. I think there was no point in changing the dose at this point.

Loz ty so much for ur kind words.
Well ur doctor could've have adjusted the dosages if he/she saw that ur follies weren't growing,lots follies means you have to "feed" them all so a higher dosage could've been added but each doctor with their own protocol and your doctor knows what is best for you.
Don't be disappointed,you only need one.
Im soooo looking forward to ur transfer and updates on ur embryos
