Cramping sounds like a good sign! Can't wait to hear your results!!
...thinking of you!!
Thinking of you! Kup!!!
Nope, blood test was negative. So we'll consult when I get my period and try again in the summer or fall. RE said that one thing she will change is to opt for a 5 day transfer since maybe the eggs didn't mature as well as they should have. She said that my levels, etc were all just as good as my last IVF, so at least age hasn't made any changes in that regard, which is good. I will be fine, but today I'm very blue. We only have one more change at an IVF and I never thought we'd need it.Good luck inBarbados, Erica! I will check in to see how you're doing. I'm going into the cave for a bit to get over this. Thank you ladies for all your support.
Say, Erica, since you turned me on to the CoQ10 which helped me so much, can you refresh my memory on what other supplements/vitamns you've been taking the past few months? Since we won't be doing our next cycle for a few months, I figure I will start my supplements now, to start preparing. I'd go back and search for your original post, but that thought exhausts me right now. I know you're swamped yourself getting prepped for your trip, so any time you have a chance, it would be soooo appreciated, thanks. Good luck!
I am so sorry and heartbroken for you, this whole journey can be so unfair
The supplements I've been taking (diagnosed with DOR/high FSH/low AMH): CoQ10 Ubiquinol 400mg 2x/day, Vit D3 2000iu daily, Vit B complex, Aspirin 81mg daily, DHEA 25mg 3x/day, Folic Acid 1mg 3x/day, prenatal multivitamin, wheatgrass, weekly acupuncture, meditation, and yoga. If you start taking Vitamin D3, make sure that you get your Vitamin D levels checked, as it is fat soluble and can build up to toxic levels in your system. Also make sure you get the ubiquinol form of the CoQ10 and the D3 form of the Vitamin D. I'm sorry you have to get back into this again . I don't blame you for wanting to go into the cave for a while. We are all here for you when you want to resurface
HighHopesMama, I am so sorry. I wanted to tell you that I had several failed IUI's and my husband and I decided to move onto IVF but we had to wait a few months before we started our cycle and I started taking Fertility Blend for Women and I really think it helped increase the quantity/quality of my eggs.
Thanks! Erica. And thanks for the vitamin D advice. I've had to checked and it's fine, so maybe I will skip that one to avoid complications. I'm just tired of trying, you know? We started trying 8 years ago. And even though it's only been a year since we started trying for baby #2, it feels like 8 years. And I'm scared that if our next IVF isn't a success, I will spend the rest of my life feeling as if we're missing someone from our family. I feel that way now. Thanks for listening. Good luck with your cycle. I hope it is a very big success!
