I hope he has some other ideas! do you think you could afford iui? it just doesn't make any sense why you sent getting pregnant. have you had a lap done checking for endo? you might give clomid a try. for some femoral doesn't work abd clomid will. I wonder if your eggs are maturing? clomid can help with that. that was my problem and clomid did fix that.

All things I plan to ask the Dr.

I'm not sure if he's gonna try Clomid, but I'm hoping he will. No, I've never had a lap done and not sure if Insurance will cover it. I don't have any symptoms of Endo.

As far as IUI, it's not possible as we are saving for something else at the moment. I'll know more once he calls tomorrow.

I just took my first dose of Femara, I finish on Thursday and then we will start our timed BD next Sunday CD 10. I'm not using OPKs or temping. I'm just taking the Femara BDing on timed days and whenever else we want. Whatever happens, we tried our best!

I'll let you know what the Dr. says!

Hi Girls

Molly-Insurance won't cover anything.

Yes, He called today.. Next step is an RE. There is not much else he can do. He won't do Clomid as he thinks it's the same thing. He said next step would be IUI+Femara+Trigger. Which would cost $800+ for 1 round. So. Needless to say I'm shattered. Gonna do this cycle and that's it for me. I'm gonna try and save for an IUI or two next year.. Life just isn't fair sometimes..

I wish you all the best. Thank you for being so supportive and encouraging this entire time. I'm forever grateful to you girls.

Hug your babies tight. You are truly blessed.

oh kat, I'm so sorry hun! I know this isn't the news you were hoping for :( I know all the ttc is so hard on you for all these years. there things of stories of people trying for years and they get a surprise bfp so don't stop hoping. are you going to stay on the metformin so you continue ovulating? you could try soy? it's supposed to be a natural approach and kind of is like clomid. did he say what the problem could be? I don't want to be nosy but do you get income taxes back each year to help pay for iui? can you take out a loan? I just don't want to see you give up on your dream. I'll continue to pray for you a miracle! many hugs to you. art you going to continue on the boards? if not I'll give you my email if you wasn't too stay in contact.

He didn't say what he thinks the problem is. He said he wants me to call him either way at the end of this cycle and that he was going to ask some colleagues and see if there was anything he could do to help.

I am going to set up an interview this week to see if I can get hired to work from home sometime soon. I also have a friend who wants me to apply with a company he works for. If/when I get hired hubby says I can save for IUI. So FX'd that happens before the fall. It's the only way I can see it happening since what my hubby brings in has to go to bills and whatever else we need.

I have tried soy yrs ago and it really messed up my cycle. I had like a 60 day cycle after that so it scares me to try again. I plan to continue Metformin because it at least keeps my PCOS in check. Without it my cycles get crazy and O is everywhere. And who knows? I may get a surprise BFP just on that, I started it in October I think so it hasn't even been a yr yet.

I probably won't be around much after this cycle because it's just too difficult to see everyone else get BFPs and I'm just waiting. I'll PM you if I decide to leave for good but if I do it won't be until the end of this cycle!

Again, thank you for your encouragement and prayers! They mean a lot to me

hey kat! I'm sorry I haven't been on here much. my husband had back surgery Monday and he's been in the hospital. we got home yesterday but I've been incredibly busy!

I hope his colleges can help! I totally get the $ issues! I couldn't have afforded anything rise either unless we waited for our taxes or something like that. be back soon!!

We will miss you!

I'm doing well!! I am CD 17 today so I'm certain O has happened. Had strong O pains CD 12 and some on CD 13 as well as Watery CM on both of those days. By CD 14 it was all gone. (pains and CM) We BD'd CD's 10,12,13, 14 and 16. So we have done all we could do! Whatever the outcome, I am at peace. No idea how many DPO I am but I'm guessing 3-4dpo. I'm honestly not even thinking about it much.

Partly because I'm almost sure I need more than Femara and I'm done worrying about, how or when my BFP will come. I'm letting go and letting God because that burden is too heavy for me. I'm happy with my life right now and that's enough :)


How are you?!?!! No more placenta issues?

I hope your hubby gets to feeling better soon! I'm so happy you are having a smooth pregnancy now! God is good!

I'm 5-6dpo and trying not to symptom spot LOL FF predicts AF on the 31st which seems like an eternity! My birthday is Saturday and next Saturday is DHs birthday. So, hopefully I'll continue to stay distracted.

For DHs birthday we are going to an amusement park with our church so that should be fun. I won't be riding any rides because I value my life LOL But DH loves it so it should be fun. I'll just play games and eat fried twinkies. :rofl:

happy early b-day! that sounds like ALOT of fun! I went to a theme park last summer and I did end up riding role coasters. I lives them wheb I was younger but I want so sure I would still. it was more scary bit fun! that's cool you guys have bdays close together. I think it will be so hard from ttc to not ttc. is like you can't unknow everything. I think after I have this baby it will still be hard to but track abd look for signs of ovulation Lol I know I have to get my tubes tired buy honestly I'm scared to make it permanent. I know I'm getting to old and we just can't afford anymore. if I were younger I would probably do it again!
