Star: Thanks a lot. What's next step for you? Do you do stims in this cycle now?

Faith: The money still seems incredibly on the higher side! IUI procedure is generally timed with trigger anyway, and requires monitoring for confirming ovulation. Is the clinic planning to do it just on the basis of your LH surge on opks?? I am sorta confused, and i think you may wanna ask these questions in your clinic. FSH and LH need to be in normal range, with ratio as close to 1:1. My cycle in May with antagonist protocol was cancelled because the ratio was 1:2. And the protocol was tweaked accordingly. Will you also do AMH test? Estrogen is generally low in beginning of cycle, but increases as the follicles grow.

Danaa: Thanks for the info on blood thinners. Keeping both of us in my prayers. Praying for beautiful BFPs and healthy pregnancy for both of us ahead.

Faith I missed a lot of posts. I had done time to read through a few today. Did you do Iui this month?

Nicky no we are not home. It may be A few weeks still. Hopefully not though! I'm thinking a realistic time what I think might be a week week and a half. So excited for you this next week!- Can you believe it's finally here?

Loz how are you I duct see any recent posts from you.

Whoz I hope your surgery webby well today! I hope you have some answers abs they corrected any endo if you had any. I also hope it wasn't painful for you.

Danaa I'm praying for you girl with all I have. How are you feeling? Scared nervous excited?

Angela how are you doing?

Andi yes third trimester is tough no matter who you are and what you've been through! You are almost there! I feel so much better not pregnant! You will too. Enjoy the rest of it as much as you can. It really goes by fast.

Star how are you? Have you had anymore tests and know anything else about when you start?

I'm just hanging out in my room getting ready to feed Ben. He's still doing great and gaining weight. I bet he will be in open crib in two days. He's got to be able to gain and keep his temp up. I'm pumping every 2/3 hours trying to get as much breadtmilk as I possibly can. I get about 15/20 ml per pumping which is not much! I'm doing what I can since it's what is best for him right now. I'm so sleepy!! My appetite is ravenous! It's way more than when I was pregnant. Must be from nursing. I'm sorry if I left anyone out. Talk to you all soon!

Faith, our RE clinic would do non-monitored IUI for $500. $1000 seems high, but I am so glad you can afford it and do it!!!!

Dana, I love your optimism and I can't wait for the transfer!!!

Nicky, I am so excited for you too and thanks for all the personals.

Star, how are you doing? When do you retrieve again?

Momma, great job with the bf and being there for little Ben Wyatt! I remember being so much more hungry and thirsty after giving birth because of the bf. And, I bet you ARE so tired!

AFM, the lap went well. I am sore and trying to stay on top of the pain, and the nausea and sheer exhaustion was the worst part, but no gas pains in the shoulders, so that's great! So, my surgeon said I had mild/moderate endometriosis which she took care of and that everythign else looked fine. I asked her if she thinks this contributed to my infertility, and she said, definintely, yes. Absolutely. So, it gives me hope that at least before it grows back, we'll have a shot. Still going to try for IUI next three cycles It made me feel better that we've found some sort of "cause." I will learn more in my post-op in a couple of weeks. Back to sleep--that's all I've been doing! haha

Courtney, wow I totally missed your announcement! Ben is just beautiful! Congratulations!

Danaa, I can't wait for your transfer. I can't wait to see you posting your third term belly pics!

Andi, Good to hear from you and hoping all is well for you. The end of pregnancy sure is hard to handle, but I bet you are doing fantastic. Can't wait for your announcement!

Whoz, I am so glad that you are in good spirits and got some good news. I hope that since she cleared out the endo you get your BFP very soon!

Whoz that's great news that you have some answers amd they removed it. It should make big difference with your iui. You will be pregnant in no time :) I'm glad it's not real painful too.

Whoz: Happy to hear you are doing well. And not in too much pain. Now that you have some answers, I am really looking forward to your IUI. I can feel it that you are gonna be preggo soon.

Courtney: Ben and you are doing great! I bet Luke amd kids are planning are a hearty welcome for both of you at home. AFM, I am still finding it difficult to believe that its actually happening. Am a bundle of nerves right now.

Fly: Hello. Good to see you pop in.

Hi eoe,
Crazy week for me. Work has been so hectic and stressful, I will be glad to put it behind me for a little while and try something new in a few months time! We have a long weekend this week, and my best friend just had her baby, so is all been very busy times. My friend had a little boy and he is just beautiful, tiny but perfect, and it's made me even more excited!
Nicky, I am crossing everything for October 4. I hope everything goes well and you are nice and relaxed!
Whoz, so glad you finally have some answers. Ends is definitely a huge contributor to infertility, so I really hope you get a bfp soon now that it's been cleaned up!
Courtney, I'm glad Benjamin is doing well. You're so good to keep us updated! I don't even have a newborn and I'm struggling.
Faith, that does sound expensive for an unmonitored IUI. A monitored IUI over here is around $500. But I know we are a bit cheaper for medical expenses than other places around the world. But I'm glad you will be able to afford to try it either way. I'm not sure about what your levels need to be for IUI, but my estradiol was very low, which is why i wasn't ovulating. FSH was through the roof. My body just kept trying!!
Dana, when is your transfer?
Andi, I think I missed a post from you but I hope the third tri is treating you as well as possible.
Star, how are your IVF plans going?
Eoe, hello & hope you're well!
Afm, Bub and I are doing great! We are in a really good spot at the moment where I'm not too big but the nausea has (mostly) passed. I have had one or two random vomits but that's way better than the nausea, and I'm getting pretty tired - even had a nap yesterday which I NEVER do! But other than that is all good. I'm still carrying pretty small, but then I'm quite tall and the baby was measuring average so that could be why! I'm just enjoying it all at the moment.
Next week DH & I are flying up to port Douglas for my 30th birthday (it's not until the 21st but it's a pre-birthday trip haha!). Port Douglas is a beautiful area right at the top of Queensland, where the Great Barrier Reef meets the Daintree rainforest, and I'm really looking forward to a week of sun & relaxation!

Hi all, I need your help. I just passed a large tissue that looked like wet brown paper bag, apx 1 inch by 5 inches and you can see the veins on it and everything. It was not accompanied by pain or bleeding. The doctors would not tell me what it was over the phone. Ideas? Why would this happen when I'm not on my period (not due for a few weeks at least).

I'm going to save it and have them biopsy it?

Dana, when do you transfer again?

Nicky, isn't it tomorrow?

Glad you're pregnancy is going along great, Lolz!

How is EOE?

We will start IUI next cycle (I hope) and will be meeting with the new RE within a few weeks. So, endometriosis sucks cuz even at any stage and even if they remove the endo, the biochemical toxins still are there and kill sperm and damage embryos. Not a good outlook for having another, or another live birth.... :-( I think I'm mourning this.

Hi ladies! sorry for the long radio silence - haven't been coming online much lately... mostly just focusing on getting my hormones regulated and my new eating pattern down. I won't know what I'm doing IVF-wise for at least another few weeks. We are waiting for the thyroid issue to be under control I think.
whoz- I'm happy your endo surgery went well. Everything I have heard from my drs say that getting the lap should help with getting pregnant... so I don't really think you will have horrible time with the biochemical toxins (maybe just a little tougher of a time).
Nicky - so excited about your transfer tomorrow - sending happy thoughts your way
Danaa - yours is just around the corner!
Courtney - happy to hear that Ben is growing and you are doing well.
EOE - sorry for s**t personals... this is all I can remember at the moment :rofl:

Hello friends.

We did transfer of three day 3 embryos today (all in one straw, were thawed together). 2*8 cell AB, and 1*5 cell B. The doc said AB ones were good. But B one was elliptical and didn't look that great. Have my B-HCG on 19th Oct. In between, I have to take bhcg injections 2000 IU on 6th, 10th and 12th. Anyone else has experience with this? Anyway, going to be a waiting game from now on amongst all the meds.I had quite a day with loads of emotions. Half my mind is telling me to think positive. The other half is telling me to think worse just so that I can handle the situation better. Sheesh.

Loz: Glad to hear you and bub are doing well. Enjoy your pre bday vacation

Whoz: I hope you could get the tissue checked. Good luck with IUI next month. I am excited for you.

Danaa: Keeping you in my prayers. Sat is almost here.

Star: I hope you can start the protocol soon too .

EOE, hello.
