So glad all went well!! I'm glad it wasn't as painful as mine!
My ob didn't even do and ultrasound yesterday so it'll be another month before I know... oh well. I did get to hear their heartbeats on a doppler. And now I know where to look for them when I use the one I have at home.View Thread
Hey Rooni... just checking in on you. Hope all went ok today, please let me know!
The babies are doing ok, as far as I know. I haven't seen them in a month though. I have an appointment this afternoon though so hopefully I'll get to find out the sexes today. I'll keep you posted.View Thread
I did one cycle with femara. I had no side effects, like I did from the clomid... But I was resistant to both the clomid and the femara. I didn't produce follicles from either really or if I did, they weren't even close to big enough. From that cycle I ended up moving onto injectables. My dh sa was great too so all we did was timed intercourse. The injectables worked for us. I'm taking it you are being monitored by u/s durring your cycle to see/measure folicle size? I would just say (and this is a lot easier said than done) if the femara doesn't work like you plan try not to get too discouraged because there are still options after. I hope everything goes great and this is the treatment that works for you and your dh! Please keep us posted on how your cycle is going!View Thread
Hi... ok so I don't want to scare you or anything, but my hag was absolutely some of the worst pain I've ever been in. But there wasn't much cramping or anything afterwards. It was only durring the procedure. I recomend calling and asking your nurse or dr, if you can take some kind of pain reliever ahead of time. Though I also have heard from a lot of ladies that theirs didn't hurt them at all... unfortunately I think its just the luck of the draw. I would also see if you could have someone your comfortable with come with you. I know my dh was right next to me through the whole thing and that helped a little. Plus it was really nice to have someone there to drive me home. The whole procedure is not very long so that's one other positive and it is kinda neat to see what your uterus and falopian tubes look like.View Thread
Hey! I just wanted to offer my two cents. Lol. I took clomid for 2 cycles and femara for one. By far my RE had way more better things to say about the femara than clomid... from my perspective, clomid was the worst. I would get dizzy spells and really really bad hot flashes... like 4 or 5 an hour from the day after I started taking it until about 2 weeks after I finished my last pill. I didn't have any side effects from the femara... I ended up moving on to injectables, but I just wanted to share my experiances with both.View Thread
Thank you all so much. I will keep you posted how things are going.
I got the results of my 2nd Beta today and its at 100. My nurse said she was so pleased, she not having me do any more. My first ulltrasound is the 29th with my RE. Then I switch to an OB. And my first ultrasound with him is the 19th of July.
Thaks again for all the congratulations and well wishes!View Thread
Thanks. Just got the call about an hour ago... my beta is at 35 but they think since I did it so early that's why its low. I have to go back and get another blood draw tomorrow just to make sure its up... they want it above 50 or 65 I can't remember... I just did injections with a trigger of ovidrel and timed intercourse.
Well I really hope the dex. works to block the testosterone. You'll have to keep me posted on how its going.View Thread
