Hi Ladies,
Thanks for the replies. They gave me my E2 level this morning, said it was 115 and they like it to be 200. I asked if it was good enough to proceed with the IUI and she said yes. With that low number it does make sense that my lining is thin. I got my estrogen patches last night, I hope they're working!
My IUI has been scheduled for tomorrow morning at 8 AM. Wish me luck!

Smurfbaby- I'm sorry your temps are dropping. You never know though until AF shows up. Hang in there!

Heather- Sorry about your negative beta. I'm glad you have an appt with the RE. I hope he can give you some answers.

Wannabe, you are right! Meds are expensive!! It seems like they are going up in price all the time.

hthr- I remember my first RE telling me my only option was IVF. I hated to hear that! I felt so defeated because I knew if IVF didn't work, then there would be nothing else that could be done (I see IVF as the last resort for me- since we hadn't really tried anything else). Hopefully by meeting with an actual RE, she can go over a solid game plan for you and be vocal with how you feel. I don't think my RE knew how much information I already had because of being on these boards...which made it easier for me to find a new one. If anything, you might be blessed yet again being on BCP! :)

Fitt- WOWzers that is a lot of money for meds!!!!

Smurfbaby- sorry your temps are dropping, but you're not out until AF shows up! But I am like you, I don't like to test because of the constant disappointments I get :(

gingy- Good luck on the IUI!

Day2 of meds and my only side effects is a bad off/on headache. I wish I would feel more activity around my ovaries..but only felt some the other night when i started the meds. Had an abdominal massage yesterday at the accupuncture- was really weird but really cool at the same time!

Smurfbaby...I wouldn't be too concerned about one or two lower temps. Mine have done some crazy things and have wound up being pregnant. I like to use the chart just as a general guide.

Gingy...hopefully by the time the embie is ready to implant the lining will be nice and thick!

Yes, meds are expensive and so if IVF. However, I have been talking to women my age and older and now I am thinking this is the way to go. A friend got 11 eggs at 44 years old!!! That is a whole year of TTC wrapped up in one month! 5 fertilized and 4 made it to day 5. She got pregnant with 3!!! One was a blighted ovum and was left with twins. I am even more excited about my IVF consult.

Hi Everyone!

Sorry I've been MIA. I've been so busy lately with work. Also one of my friends broke up with her boyfriend of 3 years and has been staying with me for a few days. I'm trying to cheer her up and keep her busy but it doesn't seem to be working. :roll:

Fitt: I'm excited for your IVF. I would have done it a long time ago if I could afford it. I hope it works on your first try.

Gingy: Best of luck tomorrow! Have you ever done IUI before?

Hthr: Good luck with the RE I hope your doctor gives you lots of answers. I know how nerve wrecking your first appointment can be.

Smurfbaby: What meds are you taking?

AFM: I'm doing a natural cycle, not that I'm very confident it will work but I'll give it a shot. Not sure if I should start temping tomorrow? It's been a while since I've temped. Tomorrow will be CD 10.

Hey ladies. Sorry, i've been a bit down and haven't felt like posting. Anyway, my doctor prescribed me the birth control I asked for and so now I have to decide if i'm going to take it. I just can't stand the thought of wasting more months, but then again I obviously am not getting pregnant on my own. The funny thing though is that i'm finally ovulating on the weekends...which makes it so much easier to BD. UGH! I wish I just knew what to do!

Hope everyone else is doing well!

Heather I'm sorry you've been down lately. I sure can relate to how you're feeling. This is a rollercoaster of emotions. Why did you ask for BCP is it to regulate your cycle? It always helps me to have some kind of plan even if I have to wait a few months to try again but at least to have some sort of goal. Every month you're one step closer! :wink:

Hi ladies,

Can I join your group please. We have been ttc for about 2 yrs, (we have a 3 yr old) I've lost 5 and been doing IUI for 8 cycles now. We haven't told any family because after the 4th MC we just couldn't face any more questions or sympathy.

I'm starting to go mad and so need to have some-one to talk to.

Sare...Yes, please join us. There is another group we have going to under 2ww symptoms labled April 1 BFP???....Part 3. That link has been more active. There are a few of us ladies there that are pregnant and others that are not.

I am so sorry for all your losses. I have suffered 3 and I am currently pregnant. However it is very early and I will not feel at ease until they see a HB. I have never made it that far.

Do the doctor's understand why so many losses? They just keep telling me it is my older eggs so I just need to be patient until a good egg pops out.

Hi ladies. Hope everyone is doing well.

I am 5 weeks 5 days today. Had two ultrasounds and so far everything is progressing. I go Monday to see the heartbeat. I am so anxious for that appointment. That is a huge hurdle. If it's there on Monday I will feel so relieved. I'm in Florida now for my brothers wedding so it's a nice distraction.
