@pingc383 I'm feeling quite flat and sad. Last night I had a bit of a cry to DH and said that I'm feeling overwhelmed with all that lies ahead. It's like the joy has been sucked out of life. All our hopes of completing our family are on hold. All the same feelings we all go through on this challenging IVF journey...it's just not fair. I'm just allowing myself to feel it all, as uncomfortable as it is, because I know I'll feel better sooner if I've felt it. Not nice tho
In response you your questions I have 8x5 day embryos frozen and 1x 4 day (that didn't look great and my FS was surprised they froze). On Tues next week they've scheduled the thaw and by next Wednesday we'll find out how many were suitable for biopsy. The results from the biopsy will take a further two or so weeks. Hopefully by our next phone consult (Oct 5) we'll have all the biopsy results and d&c testing results. At that point I should be on the pill, which I'll start once bloods confirm all of the pregnancy hormones are out of my system. Then from Oct 5 if there was a chromosomal abnormality I'll go off the pill, wait for AF and begin my next cycle. If there was no abnormality we'll look into lining issues, blood clotting issues, auto immune issues etc. And if no embryos come back normal I'll guess we'll do another stim cycle.
We've already agreed to do the testing regardless of the results from d&c because he said it's likely half will be abnormal. Again I, for some reason, have lost faith in them and would be thrilled if ONLY half are abnormal!
I did not know that high levels of LH impacts egg quality. The round before it was way too low which prob had the same effect.
I do struggle with lining thickness but Mark Livingston was never fussed with that. This FS likes to have at least 7mm. I'm nervous about getting a thick lining for a possible frozen embryo transfer. I'll need to go on half doses of injections to try stimulate my lining. Can't use clomid as my lining won't stimulate enough. Might try acupuncture again this round.
I don't ovulate either so they'll need to trigger me.
So my body, hormonally is a little stuffed, who knows what these results will find. I have endometriosis Which has blocked my tubes and PCOS which causes long cycles with no ovulation, hence having to use the pill for some sort of timing control.
Fingers crossed there won't be too many more cycles before another BFP. 🏼
