AF is here!! :cheer: we're back to TTC!! :cheer:
Congrats Laura! I'm so excited for you and will be stalking.
:hooray: Stalking Laura!!!
Yay Laura!! Are you doing a protocol?
Thanks ladies :wub:
I'll be doing heparin and progesterone starting on 5dpo. My RE wants us to try that for a few months before we talk about anything further. We're getting conflicting info from my current insurance regarding IUI. The computer tells the doctor that IUI is covered but when we call they say no. If/when we get to IUI, then I'll try and nail down whether or not I've got the coverage.
AF is being a real b*tch!!!
Hoping this is your cycle Laura!
I figured I'd better revive the NET thread :lol:
How is everyone doing?
DH & I will be BD'ing this weekend-- I'm thinking I will O on Sunday. I'll start the heparin and progesterone on 5dpo. I'm really hoping this cycle is the one!!!! :fingerscrossed: It's been over 3 months since my last pregnancy so I'm hoping the break was what my body needed.
The 1 year anniversary of my 1st mc is coming up soon and it would be really nice to have a healthy pregnancy when that day comes. :fingerscrossed:
I think of you all the time Laura! Hope this is your cycle! :)
Aww thanks Jessie :wub:
I'm so happy for you!!! Twins! What a blessing!
How is everyone doing??
My cycle has been real wonky this month. I normally O on day 16ish but here we are on day 18 :crazy: . Yesterday I finally got a + on the OPK so atleast I'm fairly certian I'll O. I was beginning to think I wouldn't.
Laura how exciting, here comes the TWW! I normally O day 18 like clockwork and of course with just my luck I was on a business trip in Nashville, TN on day 18 and then on day 19 DH and DTD so I am really really hoping the egg was still in there ready to attach. Is that even possible, 24 hours after my PEAK O day??
HI Laura, What is heparin? Do you do meds with IUI? I am trying to figure out when the best time to take the next step in TTC for us is. We have been TTC for 14 months now with 2 1st tri losses (unexplained), my RE says there is nothing else they can do for us and the next step is IUI< but when is the best time to move on/.
Hi Kelly: Heparin is an injectable blood thinner which my RE prescribed to me b/c I have 2 copies of the MTHFR gene. I haven't personally done IUI but I do believe meds are used-- either oral or injectable or a combo of both. My understanding is that the injectable cycles yield better results which is what I will be moving forward with if I don't have a successful pregnancy between now and December.
Has your DH had a sperm analysis? Are you temping & charting?
My DH has not had a sperm analysis yet but since I have been pregnant twice my RE does not seem to think that is an issue, My DH has committed to going to check it out if the next round of O does not work. I do not temp but I do chart and use the digital clear blue Ovulation tests. My RE said those are the best on the market and the most accurate. I pretty much O at day 18 every month. I just thought instead of taking it to the next step of IUI if there were any other type of meds I could do to help me along before I did IUI. TTC can be so frustrating!
Kelly: how long has it been since your last mc? Yes ttc can be so frustrating :ohno:
I went for my annual OBGYN visit today. My OB does not agree with the course of action my RE has taken and has referred me to the Peri at the practice. I'll write more tomorrow when I get back to my computer at work. I go to the Peri on June 9th.
Laura, Glad your OB wants you see Peri. I hope you get some definite answers. How are you doing cycle wise?
KellyH, I would really ask for s/a for your Dh. Things can change for men just like women. I really hope you get a bfp soon.
AFM, I haven't watched my cycle this month. I started cramping Tue and had to count what cd I was on.lol. Usually I don't know the date of the month but cd. Kwim? So nice not to worry. AF do Sunday.
Erica Laura Kelly just wanted you ladies to know I'm thinking of you! Sending lucky June vibes!!!!
Hoping and praying for looooooooots of June :bfps:!!!
My chart is so wonky this cycle :headbang: It's all over the place :crazy:
Laura, what is a Peri? My last m/c was January of this year, my RE has told me there is nothing else he can do for me (testing/procedures) and the next step is IUI. I dont know if I am ready for that yet ($), does anyone know of any suggestions on medications I could try before I take the next step to IUI?
I made an appointment for my husbands S/A for this Friday! He was not too thrilled but understands I have done all I can to check things out!.
Kelly: a Peri is a Perinatal Specialist, aka High Risk ob/gyn.
My DH wasn't too thrilled about the S/A either :lol:
Erica: How are you doing??
Thanks Natalie!!! We'll know in a few days! :fingerscrossed:
Laura, I agree your chart does look great. Thanks for checking on me, I'm having a rough time emotionally right now. I've been trying for 6 years and I'm tired. Af arrived early the month and I had a lot of clotting. Sorry tmi. Plus this week is an anniversary dd week and there are 5 pregnant women at church now. So I'm sad for me but happy for them. Why has the Lord forgotten me? Its awful that I even asked that.
Oh Erica, I wish I could give you a big hug!!!! I completely understand how you are feeling :hugs: I'm praying for you!!
I'm in a constant battle with myself and God about it but I always eventually come back to the realization that everything happens for a reason. I'm in way better shape physically so would be able to handle a pregnancy better now than 7 years ago. If we had had children we probably wouldn't have been able to do a 10yr vow renewal ceremony in Puerto Rico this last year. We've experienced so much together and grown a lot and even closer through this. We've definitely learned to lean on each other and our faith.
And after finding this forum it's helped me realize that I'm not alone in this either. It's hard to go through but knowing that there are others out there struggling and I'm not just a freak of nature that can't get pregnant helps. Having others that know exactly how it feels is so comforting.:hugs:
