@Heyside - really sorry to hear it wasn't good news.
Hope it comes soon @MrsChino. It's always the case!
Well the outcome of the appointment is that I'll go for surgery on the 30th. Having the full list done- hysteroscopy, laparoscopy, ovarian drilling, dye through tubes and biopsies from endometrium and ovaries. The conversation basically ended in let's try this but he mentioned that he has never seen anyone at my age with these problems. He doesn't think it's pcos related and rather a biochemical thing. So we'll do a stim cycle in feb with human growth hormones but basically it'll be donor from there on. There's just nothing else he can do. I guess I'll need to start to really process this whole donor thing. As the child won't be mine neither my partners. But am still clinging on the minuscule hope that the drilling and hgh will make some difference.
Thanks ladies not quite sure why I got carried away with things I knew in my heart of hearts on Wednesday that it wasn't good when hcg was only 90 but then I got excited when I had a couple of twinges yesterday. I have been told to stop all meds so they dont have any hope but another bt next Friday to make sure hcg is completely low. DH has not long arrived home so at least that is one good thing not having to cope alone.
MrsChino - hope af arrives soon and doesn't keep you waiting any longer.
Keiko - Oh hun sounds like you have a lot to process there hun. Really hoping the surgery makes a big difference for you and does the trick. Its so frustrating when the dctrs dont have the answers.
@Heyside It's only natural want things to work out, even when you know it's unlikely. You just can't help having that little bit of hope and excitement, I know I have been the same. I'm glad your DH is home with you now. Big hugs love.
@Keiko2012 Golly, you are having the works, aren't you?! I think it is totally worth doing - you just never know what they will find, and also that kind of surgery seems to help SO many people I speak to. The 30th isn't too far away, so at least you'll be able to get it all done ASAP and then recover and start the new year afresh. How are you feeling about it all? I can imagine it would all be pretty overwhelming.
Not sure how to feel @MrsChino. I guess I am overwhelmed. In a way i am so glad this is going ahead, yet at the same time am over it and terrified. I guess the fact of donors is hitting real hard, and it's just so upsetting when an FS tells you there's not much more they can do for you. This upcoming cycle has more pressure on it than ever and it just hurts a little. I think it would be easier to accept if I was older but to have this happen at my age just purely sucks.
Meanwhile our neighbours kids are yelling and shouting- they want their mummy. The parents have separated. oh gosh she just said 'I don't love you' ...
@Heyside I am so sorry hun Being given false hope is the worst and makes it harder to take than a bfn. Fingers crossed it is all over and af arrives quickly xo
@keiko I really hope that the surgery uncovers something that can be easily fixed so you can move on and have it all smooth sailing. He sure is thorough by the sounds of it so seems you're in good hands hoping and praying for you always!
@Ducky01 wow girl, what a turn around! Congratulations on being PUPO and your 5 frosties Hopefully this is the one and the others are siblings!
@MrsChino ugh waiting for af is the worst! It feels like all we ever do is wait. Fingers crossed it is a short one at least so you can get the ball rolling!
@Ree888 holy moly your kitty is adorable! How long until your next scan hun? Hope you're taking it easy
I can't even remember when or what I last posted lol. I'm cd 5 today so one more day on clomid. Day 12 scan next Friday morning. Probably already said that but if not, there you go lol. Freaking out so bad about this cycle and what the outcome will be. Marbles are gone. Not sure if i should ask if baby asprin might be worth a look at just in case? I dunno. Paranoid lol. Makes me sad that we are still at this when Brutus was due on the 30th. I know people try for a ridiculously long time but I thought having had a baby before it would just be all good.
Hi ladies, I am officially PUPO!
They transferred my grade 3 which got to 9 cells but unfortunately the weaker one died.
@Keiko2012 Thank you! I am so glad today is over. I’m beat.
Oh my goodness! That sounds like such an ordeal. I really hope this will help you and that you have a speedy recovery.
@Heyside Thank you for the warm wishes. I am so sorry to hear about your BT! *giant hugs*
@Ree888 Thank you for posting! Your cat is so beautiful. I bet he’s nice and cool now! Haha
@Ducky01 Thank you! Congratulations on the embryos! I have my fingers crossed for you!
@BecT Wishing you all the best for this cycle. Are you having a FET? X
Okay it’s way past my bedtime.
I just typed POAST instead of past. Shows how tired I am. Haha.
Hope you all have a lovely stress free weekend. xo
