Good luck @Billie2! Hope this cycle is the one!
Good luck billie2.
Katt1011 we can be fet buddies. 2 bfp coming up. ;-)
@Sunny we always seem to overlap in our cycles. When are you looking at transferring. Im hoping to get in after i see fs on the 22nd im so looking foward to ve able to so a natural fet and hopefully being able to put two in especially after 3 failed fets. How are things with you? I so hope its finally our turn for bfps! I know women do this for years and they must be amazing I know I couldn't.
Hey lovelies... just playing catch up, tried to have a bit of time out last month..
I'm so sorry to hear your cycle ended in ectopic @Annerley but thats great news that the injection worked but... such a long and drawn out cycle for you, and DH hugs xx
@sunny79 im so sorry to read that your BFP didn't progress better xx
@Billie2 I think i have a meltdown every week! I'm just calling it normal from now on... best of luck for this cycle... fingers xd xx
@babybeanie @katt1011 @Lovebubs77 @MrsSMS good to see your names about hopefully I haven't missed anyone!
AFM ugh such a topsy turvy time over the holidays with DH working away, waiting for PGD results, had Lap done last Friday, still recovering...
Discovered this lady during that time, oh man she helps me feel normal.. totally not fertility related but just being a woman and all those FEELS https://www.facebook.com/Constance-H...07015/?fref=ts
our PGD tested lone ranger from our last EPU in the freezer came back normal... oh man i cried my heart out... atleast that cycle wasn't a complete bust and I know we still make the normal ones...
Lap last week was shall we say interesting... had a hemorrhagic cyst removed from right ovary which had appeared on scans during last 2 cycles and not resovled itself... aim of lap was to have a look around, see if theres a reason why we're failing at cycles.. my left tube was cleared (that was my huge worry) after my ectopic 5.5 years ago burst my right, i was scared that i'd be left with no tubes at all.. FS found that although i'd been told my right tube had been removed when i had emergency surgery it was still there... So right now we're all amounts of confused and angry... my fertility has been at its worst since my ectopic... so looking forward to DH getting home from work tomorrow its been a rough week without him home, and we nut out where we go from here... I think it warrants a WTF conversation atleast with previous surgeon/hosptial.
Not sure when we'll do FET i know i need to get my head and body right... Im glad to see this thread still about and see some familiar names... xx
Good luck @Billie2 will be cheering you on for sure!
@Tanej78 I had another blood test this week and my levels are now 28, maybe one more week to go but I have a feeling the next on will be around 8 or 9 and I'll need another. It seems every drop has been around 70% so far.
Great news about your left tube but I'm sorry you experienced an ectopic as well. Did you have any idea or did it just rupture suddenly? That must have been such a terrible time and I'm grateful despite everything that I didn't go through that. Whilst I've been reading about ectopics, I recall one person saying that their tube regrew. Not sure if that's possible but according to some random person on google, it happened. I wasn't sure whether it had any merit, of course but just wondering whether this could have happened to you.
Fantastic news about you little embryo and enjoy your weekend with DH.
So do you have to wait and find out if they found anything with the lap or have they already said how it went? I bet it would be kind of nice to just have an answer after everything you've been through.
@sunny79 can I ask, when your hcg was at 35, was it negative the following week?
Annerley beta was back down to zero a week after the 35. Disappeared quickly for me.
Tanej78 a wtf is definitely warranted. I just hope now your fertility will improve after the lap. And congrats on the pgd normal. Yay!
Afm I am still waiting for af. I miscarried 1st jan so was hoping for her to show up soon. No symptoms. My cycle is normally 32 days so over that now. As soon as that comes I have my endo scratch after day 14 to check for nk cells and then another af before I can transfer again. Should have pgd testing on our lest 2 embies back too. Katt1011 we have both had 3 failed fet, has your specialist done anymore testing? Mine didn't want to proceed until we either find out if it is me or the embryos.
Ladies has anyone had a scratch of the endometrium??
@Annerley oh fingers xd its over soon, it must be hard being in the limbo...
with my ectopic all my levels were fine, I was 2 days off my dating scan when I had terrible pain and a bit of spotting.. ending up in ER then transferred to OB next morning, scanned and confirmed pregnancy wasn't in utero... We tried the injection, but my levels were increasing... then exactly a week from my first ER admission DH rushed me back to hospital.. Tube had ruputured and i had internal bleeding... as soon as the imaging was opened & surgeon available I had surgery to stop bleeding and was told my ovary was saved, but tube and pregnancy removed.... and had believed that and told every FS since lol ...
I think they gave me all the info in post op, im just a bit hazy coz i dont recover from GA very well... Im not actually sure now what I do next, I have my FET plan but I don't think im ready yet... Wow i've not even considered that its grown back.. FS did have a photo of it, showed me the piece missing, which would make sense if it burst... so frustrating...
had a follow up with Dr M the immune specialist in syd via phone, he says my NKC is high... and aggreed that having the inflammed right tube would not have been any good for so long... so he's recommending higher doses of steroids and intralipids than i've had already.
@sunny79 good to have a plan, def makes things easier. I've had a couple of endo scratches, they're not the most pleasant thing... worse than transfer / pap smear highly suggest taking some pain meds before hand. xx
Hi Old friends, just a little update from me. Im stimming 2nd round & had my first scan today at CD8. I have 6 mature follies with 17 all up (5 mature on the left! C'mon righty). My next scan is Friday with EPU Monday. They are definately stretching me out this time. Im already bloated & sore belly from the thick centrotide needle. Wish me luck!!! Got to beat last cycles sad 2 eggs collected! xx
