Lorrie- I came up with the name. I know I wanted credit for it. But it doesnt matter. I did apply for that job. I'll see if they call. It was posted a week ago. I wonder if they get everyone they needed.

Af should be here soon. I saw some brown when I went to the bathroom. So it looks like it's moving on it. By the sound of it, it seems like it's brutal. I'm scared. LOL

Good thing littlemiss is too selfish to ever come back here and check up on us and see what i said. LOL.

I am considering going back to work. If my MIL could watch DS I would do it and I made great money. I could make the $ for another cycle. IDK. Emotions are high right now. It's such a tough time. My parents are pushing us to go forward but DH i think is on the fence. We are lucky we have DS.. but I would love one more. We'll see.

It's just so hard knowing your numbers dwindle down so easily. Kim, I think you had several cycles with very low amt of embies. Doesn't it worry you to try again knowing your history? I just wish there was a way to make MORE.. but they always seem to die off... :(

Quinn - Not that I am Wiz or know alot about it but just speaking with my acupuncturist and researching online there are some great herbs you could start taking after this cycle (if it don't work) that can help with your egg quality. I'm not sure your history or reason for this but I would really see it being beneficial. I've heard of many women who did this for 2-3 months before their IVF cycle. I know I will be doing herbs and acupuncture for a month or 2 prior to doing another cycle if this one don't work.

lorrie - my FSH is 4.8 and we purely do this because of the mutation on DH's side. i have no fertility issues. we can conceive naturally we just choose not to because we don't want to pass on this risk of developing a rare cancer. i just don't get why my eggs would be a problem given my history. you know? but thanks for the info.

Quinn - oooooh ok. I didn't know it was DH and that what happens. I'm so sorry about that. So you have to do IVF so you can check the embies. Now I understand.

Wow, what a crap-ola day. DH is the best though. We sorta had our own little pity party today... went out to lunch, got ice cream, each bought ourselves a treat at the store. Vegging on couch now just being together. I am so blessed to have him. We will survive this!!!

Cracking up over the Little Miss name idea - that was a laugh I desperately needed today!!!!

I had anesthesia today... so this might be dumb:
Desperate (for a baby) Housewives

Carrie - you are right, this board is hard to read today! So much disappointment at every stage of the game it seems. And I hear ya on being a hormonal mess.

Lorrie - No pressure... but we're kinda counting on your quints or quads cuz we realllllly need some happy news around here!!! lol How are you feeling? Symptoms? Praying hard that this is your time.

Heath - I am so sorry. My first IVF failed - I started af before beta and it SUCKED. No rhyme or reason... and it's just such a blow after so much financial investment, emotional investment and physical investment. I'll never understand why this is so hard.

Pam - Just read Benney's post and OMG!!! What a miracle!!! I pray it continues to go well for her. Amazing.

Quinn, Cruncy, Kwam, Destiny and Tracy - thank you for your kind words and support. : )

Mere - I am very excited for test results as I hope it can shed some light on the situation. My RE said my bloodwork and antibodies check out fine, so it's a 50-50 shot that it's a fluke thing or there is something not right with chromosomes/genetics. It'll be interesting to find out. It'll really guide our next steps.

I sometimes wonder if we are meant to adopt and I am pushing that option away too quickly. I try so hard to listen to God's word and guidance... sometimes I fear I am missing the big picture. Does anyone else ever feel that way? I just hate the emotional drain of all of this. And especially this time to have come this far and then truly be back at square one. The thought of going through it all again is just so nauseating!!! Ugh.

Jenny- I think the adoption thing is jumping the gun a bit. But whatever you feel is right for you is your choice. It might not be jumping the gun if you feel emtionally that is the best for you. I just hate when people offer it to you like. I had that twice already today. I dont need someone suggesting it to me. Im not an idiot and I know it's an option and you think if I went through all of this I wouldnt want my own genetic baby. Like adopting is cheap too. It's even more then IVF. Plus my DH would never do it. He doesnt care if he has a child or not. He always says if it happens it happens if not he will be ok. So he would not adopt because it's not that important to him and he wouldnt take anyone but his own baby. But we should not give up. It could have been a fluke. The good news is you can get pregnant. If it had chromosome issues then it was a fluke and you can move on and do it again knowing it probably wont happen again. Like with my situation. I'm not happy with this but now I know what to do. I'm just shocked this didnt work for me. But it really didnt suprise me at the same time. I"m alway wanting and waiting. I dont know anything else. So being where Im at now is the norm for me. It's my life. I know nothing else. so I feel Im right where I left off a month ago. Wanting and waiting. Difference is Im out of money and it leaves a strain on things. Im anxious for your results and I belive you will have a few months to heal and morn your loss and you'll be read and even more determined cause you got a test of what it was like and you'll be so ready and determined to make this happen. Were kind of the same with early loses, tubal pregnancies and now missed miscarriage around the same week.

Lorrie- That was so funny about the littlemiss comment. It made my day too. Im hoping this is it for you and your talking about doing this again. No, your not. Your get pregnant. Your way, way over do.

quinn- Your FSH is where my age is at basically. Mine is a 5. Were the same age basically so we should be close. I dont have issues getting pregnant either. It's tubal issues. Which is a little different then some. If I had tubes that work I know for a fact 100% i would have been pregnant already. I still would have miscarriages. But I would have found this out earlier and would have had a baby by now. I just hate when people assume it doesnt work and now what else is wrong with you. Not everyone gets pregnant every month. No matter if you have nothing wrong with you. Like you. You have nothing wrong and could get pregnant naturally no problem. But if you do this and it doesnt work it doesnt mean anything is wrong. It's just life. Not every embryo is a pregnancy.

Here is my theory. I know Im going on for a min here. When you get pregnant naturally it's a good quality egg and a good sperm. I know they do the whole cleaning and swim up with IVF or even pick one with ICSI. But your still forcing the issue. When it happens in your body it's mean to be and everything is in place cause it just happened. When you go and force meds for eggs that weren't ready to really go w/out loads of meds and sperm that might not have made it if it went on it's own. Your either putting them in a dish or inserting the sperm in. You dont know if that one was the best. Your forced fertilization. So of course not all will be good when it's forced. They just look at what they have and randomly pick one and hope for the best. I remember my embryologist say I hope i picked the right now. Im like seriously? I want the right one. Well she picked wrong. I belive I should have done a 5 day transfer. I never had a 5 day and luck with 3 days. But I only had 2 make it to day 5. Theese died as well. So I wish i would have donea 5 day and transferred the two frozen I have right now and then if it didnt work then none arent meant to be and I wouldnt have to waste money on a frozen not knowing if it will work. Also my other FET's were 2 day frozens. How crazy is that. That is why it didnt work. Ok im done on my little speech.

Crunchy - I am praying for your embie. I hope it makes it!!! It sucks that you have to be going through this stress right now.

Quinn - I am sorry only two are left. I can't believe that many stopped growing. I wonder why? I hope your last two don't have the mutation and make it! I will be praying for you.

Jules - I am so sorry it was negative. We just really had a bad start of the week. I broke down at work too. I am sure people heard me. It wasn't pretty. It just plain sucks, I just don't understand.

Jenny - I am so sorry for your loss. IT really sucks. I hope you find some answers on why this happens. I hope it was just a fluke.

Pam - I can't believe you are already starting lupron. Wow, that went fast.

Kwam - Let us know what your doctor says. I hope it went well.

Heather - I am so sorry you are spotting already. It really sucks. I hope you can start again soon. We both will have better luck next time, I know it.

Mere - Good luck on the Fed Ex job. That is great that they have coverage. It sounds like it might be a better job for you than Staples. I really hope you get it. I had one of my friends talk about adoption to me also yesterday. I was like, I just want my own baby and she said ok, I am sorry, just suggesting options.....I know my options.

Hi, girls.....It sounds like another crappy day today. I took the day off and went shopping with DH. It was nice. I feel a little better today. My mom text me and said she can take money out of her life insurance for my FET, so that made me feel better. I am going to ask them on Wednesday when I can do it. How soon can you do an FET? I have to go in tomorrow for another beta level test, which really sucks @ss. I really don't want to go in. I know what the results are going to be. It just better be a chemical and not an ectopic. I only have one tube and that would be my luck. I will let you know the results tomorrow. I hope we don't have any more bad news. We need Lorrie to get preggo!!

Thanks girls. Alot riding on this 'old' lady. Quints or Quads...wow! :omg:! Well I Hope & Pray I can deliver......litterly. lol

Jenny - I'm so glad that out of a horrible day you have a wonderful DH to be there for you and treat you so nice. That makes the world of difference. You do survive and move on, but you do need that time to mourn no matter what.
I did have some pinching yesterday and then again today after acupuncture. Yes, I went back today cause my step daughter had me all stressed out and upset last night and this morning. My appt made me feel so much better. I'm glad I went. The pinching in my uterus area started again once I got home. I hope that's a good sxs :D

Mere & Quinn - My FSH is 6. :omg: But this is what confuses me or makes me think that you can't really go on that. That means reserves, but not quality. So even though I may have the 'reserves' of a younger woman I don't have so much of the quality. Hence my ER this time being 15 eggs but only 7 were mature and 5 were good. I did shock some nurses at the clinic where I go when they saw my FSH number. They said they have 28 year olds that come in that don't produce like me. Well wth then??? How come I haven't had a litter by now in my life??? lol

Mere - I do agree with you on your theory. IVF and all that they do to our eggs in the lab do put strain on them. They do go through alot more stuff outside of us than they would on a normal 'getting pg on your own' kind of thing. I really think the buttom line is finding a reputable clinic that has really good embryologists. But it's hard to be 'picky' with clinics around your area if you don't have many to choose from. I had that same conversation with my latest RE about 3dt and 5dt. I really to finally do a 5dt but his theory and many from that clinic is they prefer to do 3dt even with younger women that go there. He really feels that the embryo does much better in the womb than in the lab. Plus at my age, they said a 5dt is never done.

stboom - I'm so sorry about another crappy day. I'm glad you got to go with DH and do something to ease your pain. I know it didn't and you're still hurting, but it's something to keep your mind occupied. Sorry you have to go in for another beta....I feel for you. I happy though with the news about you mom getting you the money for your FET! That always makes things feel a bit better when you have something to look forward to again. BIG HUGS

BTW ladies....when do you think we'll start this new named thread?? After this one?? We're still going to stay on this board though (ICSI/IVF)?

Jenny: so glad you did something for yourself afterwards!! and glad you have a supportive DH and that you can both comfort each other!!

stboom: My breakdown was so bad, I mean like the sobbing, audible, gasping for breath kind, It was so bad, that now as I am writing this I am kind of chuckling at myself. The whole room was silent and then you just here me sobbing, the other np's were so supportive and came over and gave me hugs, which made me cry more. Then I wait about 10 minutes put on powder, like that was even going to start to cover up my splotchyness, dont know if that is a word or not? But anyway then I come bounding into the patient's room like I am the happiest person ever, when my face looks like I have been crying for hours. I bet those poor people are still wondering what the heck happened to me, they are probably telling their family that I had permanent red birthmarks on my face, because that is what they looked like, too funny, well at the time it wasn't but now for some reason I am finding it hysterical, when I think of how I must have looked!!LOL!!

LorrieS: still hoping for you!
Quinn: still hoping for you!
Crunchy: still hoping for you!!

I just don't get it, I still really feel like I am PG, i had tons of cramps, etc. I guess it was just the progesterone/estrogen. Everyone in my family is telling me it was to early to test, to wait until Friday. I don't know, I would like to hold out hope, but I am just kind of convinced...

Mere: I understand what you are saying, not every embryo whether great or not great, does or does not necessarily make a baby. I just knew when I saw those embryo's after the thaw, that they did not look good. And I had grade A's that had survived PGD going into the thaw. I just think if I had not hyperstimmed and we could have transferred those A's that I would be PG by now. I don't know, maybe not, but that is just what I think. So mad at my body!!

oh man, I am really bummed and sad with all the sad news coming in recently. :hugs:

Crunchy - oh okay. sorry they are giving you such a hard time, if it were me, I would have the procedure done, so you don't have any regrets. Hope ins. covers it! That is such a sad thing to say to have wished that you died. :hugs: I am sorry about your accident but God has bigger plans for you. Do you have permanant physcial damage from the car accident?

stboom - I totally understand your sadness and frustration. Our RE gave us a 60% with our last FET, so we were shocked when it ended in a chemical. Hugs to you. Taking the day off tomorrow is a good idea, give yourself some time to heal. I also read your siggy and you have been through so much already. How much disappointment can 1 person take? I am so sorry you are going thru this :cry: Just read your recent post and that is such great news about your mom being able to fund your FET. If you're #'s remain low, you should be back to <5 fairly quickly and you may be able to do a FET with your next cycle. That's how fast we were able to do our next FET. I'll be praying for you tomorrow.

Quin - oh man, I can't believe you are down to 2 embryos. Testing all of them was a good decision. All it takes is one and I will pray both of them test negative for the mutation. I'm not really shocked your RE suggested tx'g them without doing PGD and doing a CVS. But to me, you made a good decision and one that was right for you. Hope MIL can give you guys the money to cycle again soon but for now, try to stay +. I know its hard. WOW, going back to work would be pretty cool, esp if you had family to watch your son. That would def help in raising money for another cycle. hmmmm. something to think about.

mere - oh man, you think your infection is back too! WTH??!! I hope its nothing. For some reason mine seems to be getting better. It was really bothering me over the weekend but I left it alone Monday and it seems to be improving, not sure what 's going on. I have the Diflucan but I am holding off taking it for now. I expect AF sometime next week so I'm hoping I can wait until then, sometimes AF brings on the infections. Good luck on getting the Staples or Fed ex job!

How bout some of these titles for our buddy group...just random thoughts. I like some of the suggestions already made.

Jules - I can't believe this!! How can this be??!! I was SO optimistic for you! PGD and everything! Plus 3 to boot! I just don't get it. I am so sorry. I will still hope and pray for a BFP miracle for you! :praying:

Lorrie - :praying: you will break this track of recent bad news on our thread. Sorry the RE wouldn't change your beta date. They are sticklers about that sorta thing. :roll: Your sxs sound so promising! I had lots of pinching when I got my BFP in 08!

Carrie - sorry about the painful AF. :hugs: she sucks and its so much worse when she comes after a failed cycle. I am so sorry.

Jenny - Thank you for letting us know how you are. I have been thinking about you all day today. Glad that everything went smoothly but of course, so sorry that you had to go thru this. take this time to heal and we are here for you whenever you are ready. You sound like such a strong person and couple. :love:

kwam - update us when you can.

Destiny - :hi: thanks for keeping up and checking in when you can. How are your girls?

pam - I think the 3 for the price of 2 deal is a great option. We considered that at one point, though our clinic does not offer it and think we would have had to go elsewhere. But if we had too we would have. Your clinic has a good plan, have you already applied? If its not too personal, how did you guys end up in Bermuda?

Health - :( I am so sorry. And to make it worse, AF shows up before beta. :hugs: My 1st IVF cycle I started spotting which made me test before beta. BFN. Glad I did though because I hadn't planned on testing beforehand so atleast I was prepared. Will you schedule a f/u with your RE soon to ask why it didn't work?

AFM: Well, I did read Benny's post and I too am confused. Either she got pregnant naturally, which seems to have been ruled out, or it implanted late. Not exactly sure and I'm no doctor but if it implanted that late and is that far behind development, 4 weeks but should be 6 weeks, I don't think that's promising. When I got pg in 08, at 6w4d, 2 embryos implanted but 1 was alittle over a week behind. It didn't have a hb or a fetal pole I think. By the next week, it had a heartbeat but still very far behind, by the 3rd u/s, the hb was gone. I'm not saying the same thing will happen to Benny, I hope it doesn't. I will hope and pray that it works out for her. Its defnitely an unusual situation to say the least.

Well, I picked up my Diflucan but haven't taken it yet. Still feeling pretty good oddly enough. Maybe its getting better on its own. I'm going to hold off, I stop BCPs on Tuesday and sometimes AF will bring on another infection so I am going to try and wait til then. I spoke to a friend of mine that's a doctor and he said not to take any more Flagyl or Metro gel that it could make the yeast grow out of control, so I won't do that and I'll just stick to what I have been given.

If you ladies are up for alittle positive news...I took the boys for they're 12 mo check up today and they are both doing really well. Christian weighs 22#6oz :shock: and Peter weighs 20# exactly. both are 29" long. Both had a very good increase in growth since they're last appointment, I don't have percentiles in front of me at the moment. So overall, very happy about that. and a bit relieved too. So, its been a loooon day filled with lots of crying, (they don't like the doctor much)

Still no update on Snowy's bloodwork. :? That's nerve wracking. The vet knows how close I am with pup, so I hope she's not avoiding calling me. I know I'm reading into that too much but my mind goes crazy sometimes.

First off, I forgot to say go VIKINGS. Brett Favre rules!!! They had a great game last night. I am now watching the TWINS and it is the 11th inning. If we win this game we make the playoffs!!! I am a big sports buff.

Cathy - I like desperate (for a baby) houswives also!!! I also like Mission BFPossible. I really hope that we can start our FET right away. I am glad we have four on ice, so hopefully we have two more shots at it. Good news about the boys, they are getting big.

Jules - I can totally relate. I am in HR, so hopefully no employees heard their HR analyst balling uncontrollably.

Jules - I know when I had my failed cycles....many....I cried like that on a few and someone came into my office and I could tell they were looking at me like they were scared to talk to me lol. I'm sorry you had that kind of cry though. But it does relieve some of that uncontrolable sadness. I know you don't want to think of holding out hope cause of your bfn, but I will for you <<HUGS>>

Cathy - Thanks for encouraging me with having lots of pinches with your 08 BFP! I'm hoping it rings true for me too! I love the good news about the boys! They are growing beautifully :D And of course ADORABLY too! :mrgreen: I hope you get good news tomorrow about Snowy tests. I am really attached to my furbabies too. I thought I was going to lose my pekignese (Gizmo) early this year when he had a tumor in the roof of his leading to almost his brain. But we had it removed and chemo done and he is my Cancer survivor!! He's doing well today. I'm praying for Snowy. :praying:


Well ladies, I'm off to bed.
