Second injectable cycle...anyone else on injectables this month?

Well, the cyst from my first injectable cycle is gone! Yay! I'm CD2 today and will start femara and menopur tomorrow. I will be taking femara days 3-7 and one menopur shot on days 3, 5 and 7. I produced three mature follicles on my first round, but ended up with a BFN and a huge cyst. Hopefully I'll have some better luck this month!

Anyone else on injectables this month?

sorry for being out for a while..to update all of you..well im now at rest waiting for my karyotyping tests..results will be probably on jan.13,2009..4 weeks too long to wait.. to know the reason why my ovaries are getting smaller..,my estradiol was very low..ive finished 5 sets of Gonal-f..

1st cycle-oct....450iu
                       300iu...
***iui cancelled poor quality of egg
2nd cycle-nov...450iu
                       450iu
                        300iu...all of them 75iu/day
***iui cancelled again...slow follicle response 1.1cm at CD16

my RE gave me duphaston to have perid but im just wondering why it showed up early..dec14..my last period was nov.22..and its weird for the first time its not consistent..
1st--dec14-brownish discharged
2nd--dec15-red
3rd--dec16-brown/red
4th--dec17-brown...all of them are very light,on and off cramping..

is it normal?

OMG, Fifi! I am sooo sorry! That is just not fair... Maybe you could ask your RE about not using lupron. I've read that some women get "too supressed" on lupron. Don't really know too much about it...but it might be worth bringing it up with your doctor. I'm also sending you a BIG hug!

Ingy: Glad to hear you've (more or less) recovered from the lap! The same thing happened to me when I had my lap back in August...they didn't find anything. It would almost have been easier if they they DID find something wrong, so it could be corrected. BUT, the good news is that we're both at least able to rule that out! Can't wait to hear about your FET BFP in January!!!

I'm done with my meds and just waiting for my CD12 sonogram on Friday. Hopefully everything will work out this month and my DH's sample will be back to normal for the IUI!

Take care girls, and keep me posted!

Oh Fifi i'm so sorry to hear that news.. Why??? This isn't the first one cancelled is it??? Oh bugger.. I know there's nothing i can say to make you feel better but just to know i am thinking of you... Big Hugs

Heather how are you going??? How's the pills and shots going???

All well here with me. My lap went well on Friday, they found nothing. Well at least its a piece of mind..  My belly is still very bloated from the gas they said it usuallly takes a week to go down.. My shoulder has been fine though...  Going to do a detox on Boxing Day so i'm all fresh and ready for the new year...
Still hoping to do a FET in Jan...

Ingy: Yeah, I know...the costs of all of this can be pretty high, especially for IVF. It's great that you have frozen embryos, though. That will cut down on much of the EXPENSIVE medication and retrieval :-) Best of luck with your lap! Let us know how it goes!

kmcarino: We haven't heard from you in a while. I hope you're doing OK. Since I didn't have any info on you this month, I took you off the list...but we'd love to have you back, so if you post your info (cycle day and what you're doing this cycle) I'll definitely add you back on!!!

As for me, I'm excited about the new cycle, but also a bit nervous. What if we have a low sperm count for the IUI again. My RE seems to think it was just a random one-time thing, since the previous samples have been good. I REALLY hope he's right!

Good luck to everyone and SSBD!

Heather thats great news, you have started pills and injections.. Good Luck with everything, thinking of you...

Nevaeh I'm so sorry to hear about your pain... I hope everything works out for you the way you want.. Big Hugs....

As for me looking forward to my lap tomorrow hoping for answers or at least a piece of mind.. Then i will wait till next year to start on a frozen cycle maybe in Jan it depends on the money side of things.. Its crazy how much money we have all spent but it will be well worth it in the end.....

My cycle day is day 5...

Here's the updated list...

Oh, Nevaeh...I am so sorry! I know there is nothing I can say to make you feel any better right now, but please know that we are all here for you! I really hope everything works out between you and your DH...and hopefully someday soon, you'll get another BFP that will give you your little baby.

Take care of yourself...

well ladies my BFP didn't last for long. My beta last Wed was 4. It jumped to 12 on Friday...today it was only 19...in 4 days it only went up 7....I started spotting brown last night too...I guess technically miscarrying my little bean...I would assume the stress of my life right now didn't help this..God figured if we couldn't keep a happy marriage that I couldn't keep my little bean.

I don't know what's going to happen now. If me and DH get back together we aren't going to be trying for a very long time...and if we don't...then I guess I'll have to wait and see what happens...

Good luck to all you ladies. I hope you all get what you deserve in life. I guess mine just wasn't meant to be.

Aaah, thank you, Fifi! That's so sweet of you! Yeah, let's hope for a Christmas or New Year's BFP!!! I have my baseline today, so hopefully there are no cysts this time (I had a cyst after my first injectable cycle, and this was my second). Best of luck with all the meds! Hopefully you'll respond perfectly this time around!!!

AF is here :-(

I'll have my next baseline tomorrow.

318181 tn?1336443496
Ingy: Oh, no!!! Are you sure it's AF and not implantation bleeding or something? I'll be crossing my fingers for the latter!!! if you do need to have a lap, it's not that bad. I had one in August. It's outpatient surgery, and you'll be under general anesthesia, but you'll be back home again that same day. I had a sore tummy for a few days, and had some weird pain in my shoulders (from the gas they use to lift the stomach wall), but all in all, it really wasn't too bad. Keep us posted...

Fifi: Good luck with your appointment today! Also, let us know how things go with the new acupuncturist...

Nevaeh: How are you doing? Did you and your DH have a chance to sit down and talk everything out?

Tracy: Did you have your blood test yet? Hoping for some good news from you!

As for me, I have started spotting a little, and my temps were below the coverline this morning, so AF should be right around the corner... Arrrgh!

kmcarino got AF on Tuesday. I think she cancelled the beta. I'm super sick already.....I haven't eaten in what seems like forever. I can hardly hold down crackers. I get motion sick very easy so I'm sure I'll have a rough few months. I really hope that this stress from DH isn't going to harm the baby. He's been talking the "D" word and I'm extremely freaking out. He still isn't home...ugh. Just when we finally get the news we were hoping for..it seems that the stress of it all has ruined it before it even started....I am hoping that's not the case. I know you ladies would understand....I'm sure you go through the same thing with your spouses...anyways..I am hoping to hear more good news from you ladies. It's been hard to be excited to be honest...

Yay! We got our first BFP on the thread!!! Congrats, Nevaeh!!!

Nevaeh: I am so excited about your BFP!!! That's such great news that it more than doubled in two days! I'm sorry to hear about you and your DH's problems, though. I know all of this TTC craziness can be a lot to handle sometimes. Hopefully the two of you will get everything sorted out soon, so you can both sit back and enjoy the pregnancy!

Ingy: Sending you some extra sticky baby dust! Don't let those negative thoughts ruin your day. Stay positive! There might just be a little bean or two getting nice and snug down there as we speak :-)

Fifi: $25 per session is a great rate! Did you ask her if she does acupuncture specifically for fertility? If so, I would go for it. If she's licensed, she should know what she's doing. Best of luck!!!

As for me, I'm not even testing this month, because of the whole cancelled IUI/low sperm count thing, so just kinda waiting for AF...she'll probably arrive on Sunday or Monday.

Well, I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Here's the list...

-------------------

Nevaeh - 13 dpiui, Follistim, BFP!!! Latest beta 12!

kmcarino - 16 dpiui, Gonal-F, beta was on Wednesday (anyone heard from her?)
Heather - 13 dpo, Femara/Menopur (three mature follicles, but IUI cancelled)
Tracy - 10 dpt, Follistim/Cetrotide, one perfect 4-cell transferred
Ingy - 4 dpt, IVF cycle, Gonal-F/Lucrin, two double-grade A's transferred

Fifi - Starting next IVF cycle soon! Might try acupuncture :-)
butterflybabies - Will be seeing a new RE in January (fingers crossed!)
