Hi Pray, thanks for thinking about me. Things are going well so far. I get very nervous and superstitious about things its ridiculous Anyways, we found out that we are having triplets! Its crazy, 2 eggs fertilized but 1 split, so we have a singleton and a pair of identical twins which I'm told only has about a 1% chance of happening and has nothing to do with fertility drugs. They've given us a couple scares but so far everything has worked out. I got to see them on u/s yesterday and I'm around 9.5 weeks along and have been spending a lot of time resting and praying everything goes well.
Did you take a trigger shot? What day are you now? It's been so long since I took clomid I can't remember how it exactly works. So not sure if testing too soon could give you a false positive or not. I know this wasn't the best advice but i do wish you much luck.View Thread
Thank you for the kind words. I'm so nervous about this and having something bad happen again but at the same time I'm confident this will work out well. My first beta was 290 and my second beta was 756. So very good numbers, most likely multiples. I'm hoping for very healthy twins. I'll be happy with whatever we get but triplets would scare the heck out of me haView Thread
Hello, It's been a while since I posted but I've checked regularly to see if anything is going on. Prayforamiracle, I've thought of you often and hope you're doing well. I know the last time we spoke you were going through a rough patch. I really hope things have gotten better for you. As for me things have been a little crazy. We had 3 failed IVF, first one resulting in a chemical pregnancy. Then I had lap and hysteroscopy and we hoped that would be the answer for our third IVF but it wasn't. After the last IVF we had decided that we were done with IVF even though we still have a blast frozen. It was a lot of money each time and we weren't getting anywhere. RE said he thinks I need to get pregnant to fix the problem. He couldn't get the blast in without making me bleed. So anyways, DH and I decided that we would go back to IUI, take our time and in the mean time start the adoption process. We looked into a couple agencies and found one with a private infant adoption and we are working with them now. Crazy thing is I just finally got a BFP! I really wasn't expecting anything of this last IUI and was so focused on the adoption process that I really hadn't thought of it. Until one morning I woke up not feeling well and decided to test for the heck of it, expecting to see a BFN, but I was wrong. I had both my beta's this week and all looks great. Can't wait to find out how many we're having.
Just wanted to post an update and wish good luck to everyone.View Thread
Hi, while I can't reply about natural or home remedies working I can about the depression. For me, I tell myself I'm allowed to feel however I want and try to keep busy with projects around my house. Also, I tell myself this path we're on wont last forever. After my m/c last summer I never thought I could get back at it but I did And while still no luck I know that it will happen but with my issues its just going to take a while for us. I am sorry you're feeling depressed. Just know that its normal, we All have been there and you have every right to feel however you do. Good luck to you and hang in there. You will get through this.View Thread
I am so, so sorry you're feeling this way. I know the feeling all too well and it is certainly tough to get through. I know there is not much I can say that will make you feel better right now. Just try to stay strong and positive. We WILL get through this. No matter how things may turn out some day we will get through it and move on with our lives. This wont last forever. As far as the guilt with your DH, I'm sure he doesn't hold it against you, and you're blaming yourself when he is not. He married you because he loves you, and not someone else who may or may not have already had children. I'm willing to bet anything he's not thinking that way and is more concerned with how you're doing. Sometimes taking a break can really help. We had to take a couple months off because of my surgery and it was really a good thing for me. I finally got to enjoy life a little bit more. My RE told me I had no restrictions when I asked if it was okay to have a glass of wine here and there. He pretty much laughed and told me to go get drunk haha.
Hi, I never took Femera but I did take Clomid which I think are very similar. With clomid they start you off on a low dose and then increase as needed. I'm pretty sure they do the same with Femera so you may just need to keep increasing the dosage until it works for you. They don't want to start you on too high of a dosage and go overboard. Good luckView Thread
Hi Pray, I've been thinking about you and wondering how you're doing? If I remember right the last time you gave an update you were saying that you had to take some time off due to scheduling? Just wondering if you've been able to start another round or are still waiting and how you're doing.View Thread
CONGRATS!!! That is wonderful news. I'm so happy for you. Don't worry about the metformin, my RE told me its completely safe during the first trimester. Its at the end of the first trimester that you have to go off of it. He also told me that it can do absolutely no harm to a fetus during that first trimester so you have nothing to worry about. Again, congrats!View Thread
Thanks for the replies. I am feeling a bit more positive about things since the surgery. I haven't met with my RE yet, but from what he told DH after the surgery he did remove some endo as well as some uterine polyps. Not sure how many polyps but I know there were multiple. From what I read about them I can definitely see embryos not being able to implant due to them. So hopefully since they're gone now we will have some luck. I meet with my RE in about 2 weeks and we will go from there. DH said that the Dr. feels much more confident about doing a transfer now too. Before it seemed almost impossible to pass the catheter through, but now the RE made a map so he knows what to do. In the past I always had to be put under for a transfer and now he wants to try it with no anesthesia so that's a good sign I think.View Thread
