  • @futuremrswright2012 Things are going okay here. I had 3 beta draws. 145, 340, then 2,228 (96hrs later). I had some spotting yesterday so they had me come in and do the 3rd draw and check progesterone.  Both came out okay, so we're hoping it's nothing. 
    If the spotting doesn't stop by tomorrow then I'll go in for a 4th draw and they'll continue every 48 hours until HCG is at 10,000 then we'll try for an ultrasound to see if what's going on.
    This is all with my OB since we hadn't had our first appointment with the RE yet.  So I'm impressed that they're being proactive about things this time around, because they usually aren't.

    We also have kept our appointment with the RE for the end of the month, just in case.  That way if it does end in another loss, we can chat with her about a game plan moving forward.

  • fingers crossed for you @brij2006 - spotting can be really common in the first trimester so it may be nothing.

    Where are you at in your TTC journey? cycle 5, CD 2

    Any testing coming up?  No, just started temping yesterday

    Anything good or bad happening? (TTC wise or just in life..) After 5 days of spotting AF finally came.  I stopped taking maca because it was messing with my flow.  I am however giving it to DH this month.

    FFC/AW of the Week (no rules):  I'm tired and I have to spend the entire day helping DH clean up his studio from all the construction dust and what not.  But hey it just means he can start unpacking and get back to work.  Hopefully his stress level lessens and we can get pregnant this month.
  • FET was a fail, unfortunately. I don't know what is next. I think we will discuss donor egg/embryo with the RE, but have no idea about cost. I'm just unsure of what we will do, and am kind of grieving the picture I've had in my head for the last few years. 

    Its weird because I didn't even get pregnant, but we knew who he was and had chosen a name. We'd planned. This sucks.

  • I'm jumping in over here since I love the MM board so much!

    We've been trying for just under 2 years at this point. We had a failed IUI back in June and we started our first IVF round this week! I'm doing lupron and finishing up BC pills this week and I go in for my baseline next week and then start the stims. We have our 2 year wedding anniversary this month and I think I love my husband even more since he's been willing to inject me (I'm a huge baby and freak out when I try to do it myself) even though it grosses him out. 

    The only bad thing is dealing with CVS Caremark. They are the freaking WORST. And I'm stuck dealing with them as my insurer outsourced prescription benefits management to them. They have been so bad that I actually called my insurer and said we're considering switching insurance at next open enrollment (DH's employer offers multiple plans) because they keep trying to delay and deny my medications that are covered and preapproved. 
  • @LillibetteV  welcome!  I've been here 2 months I think.  I hope we are both here in the short term :)

  • I'm so sorry, @ilovewhitevinotoo. So many hugs to you.

    FX crossed for you @brij2006!!

    Where are you at in your TTC journey? Cycle #8, CD7

    Any testing coming up? I'll start OPKs this coming Sunday (CD10).

    Anything good or bad happening? (TTC wise or just in life..) I was approved to go to San Diego for training the week before Thanksgiving, so that's something. :smile: 

    TTC-wise: Just keep on keeping on. I am pushing DH hard to listen to me this cycle when I say I'm about to ovulate so we can DTD. He was incredibly busy at work last cycle and before that we had to abstain because he had his SA the day I O'd. LOL. FX this cycle gives us a better chance.

    Also, right now, I am incredibly worried about all my friends in Florida that are being affected by Hurricane Matthew. A lot of them stayed and they are all along the coast. 
    Anniversary
    Married: 10/13/2013
    TTC #1: Mirena removed 5/26/2015; DH - normal SA, me - diagnosed with PCOS 8/4/2016 - on Metformin;
    BFP - 10/29/2016!!!, EDD - 7/8/2017
