Liz,

Thanks for the positive energy! :D I am glad that you are lookig forward to starting a new cycle. Having gone down this road once to get my son and again to get #2, I can't tell you how important it is to keep positive.

I have had every symptom of pregancy since Wednesday morning. ;D I just have to keep busy and not think about it or I will be a basket case. The symptom that is most positive in my mind is that I have had heart burn everyday and in some cases so bad it won't go away with 2-3 TUMS. I ended up on medication during my first preg. DR siad it was caused by increase in progesterine. Problem is that the meds have increased the progesterone in my system as well. I go Monday for bloodwork. I'll know more then

Good luck on your new cycle :D I will get the thoughts and prayer coming.

Deanna

Deanna,

I am keeping my fingers crossed that all your symptoms mean what we think they do. Sounds very positive to me!

Lots of luck, baby dust and prayers to you!
Let me know how things are going.

AF finally got here on Friday. I am relieved, onto month two and 150mg of Clomid. Cycle is usually 28 days, this month 33. Had to drag it out I guess!

Liz, looks like we will go into this month together...best wishes to you (and me)!

Deanna, happy thoughts to you! Hoping your blood work is all positive, today!

Tracy,

You are right, looks like we are on the same schedule this month. I wish you the best of luck and luck for myself as well.

Do you have to have a baseline ultra sound before you began taking your Clomid? I have to have one Tues. (day 5) to make sure there are no left over follicles or cysts since my nightmare last month.

Keep in touch
Liz

Liz,
No baseline U/S for me. Just have to show up on Day 22 for a progesterone level check, and that's all. Beacuase this is only my second month TTC with this doctor, this is all he is doing at this time.

It sounds like you guys are on your way to a positive cycle this time. I am sending all the positive energy, good thoughts and prayers to both of you.

I received some good news this afternoon. I had my day 22 bloodwork this morning. My progesterone level is at 40 and they are very happy! If I haven't started AF by the 27th they want me to call and go in for blood tests. Like I will be able to wait that long....you know I will take a hpt on the 25 or 26 ;D.

Thanks for your positive thoughts!

Deanna

Great news Deanna! That is really wonderful! I am very pleased for you, and best wishes! I hope you are taking it easy for the next 8 days! Sure beats my progesterone level of 9 last month! LOL!

Day 5 for me and Liz today...let the clomid begin! Hope all is well with Liz's u/s this a.m.

Good morning all,

Deanna, Congrats on the positive progesterone level. That is awesome. My level was never that high even when I was on the suppositories. I am thinking about you everyday. I wish you the best of luck with the next week of you wait. Please feel free to drop if you need some extra support.

Tracy, Thanks for you positive thoughts. I had my us this morning and my overies look great, no cysts! Now the next problem is my linining is triple 9 which of course is too thick for this time in my cycle. That is more the thickness they like to see when you are ovulating. I had bw drawn so they will get back to me later this afternoon with the results. I will let you know how it goes. For now I am on hold with the Clomid.

Baby dust to all!

Deanna,

How are you doing? I am thinking about you. Let us know how you are doing. I believe your 2ww is soon coming to and end.

Hope all is well.
Liz

Liz,

I am doing well. I am in the final days of the 2ww. I don't have any symptoms other than on and off heart burn and on and off cramps. Sometimes it feels like af is on her way and other times it doesn't feel like anything. I could have taken a First Response hpt this morning, but I just wasn't ready yet. :-\ It is still very early today, I may take it in the morning.

What is going on with you? Are you still in a holding pattern? Does the doc have any guesses as to why your lining was so thick? I know when I had too many cysts after hyperstim trying for our first, the doc put me on the pill. His thought process was to regulate my hormone levels and get a clean slate to start from again. I did that for about 4 months and then we got a BFP on our first cycle of gonal f and IUI. I seems weird to take the pill to help get ready to conceive, but in our case it worked.

I will keep you posted and contiue to send good thoughts for you.

Deanna

Good morning Deanna,

How are you feeling? Is today test day? I am thinking about you, hoping you get the BFP this month!

I am doing good. I started Repronex on day 6 (last Wednesday), Friday I had an us and bloodwork, everything look good. Today I had an us and bloodwork. I have one follicle on the left and one on the right. The one on the right is 13 and left is 10. I have to wait to see what my estrodiol level is this afternoon, but I am hoping it is high and that both the follicles mature. We will see, keeping our fingers crossed. I am extremely nervous this month since of the disaster last month. I keep telling myself be optomistic.

Hope all is well with you. Let me know when you get a chance what your test results are.

Take care,
Liz

Best wishes Liz! Sounds good!

Hoping Deanna had a GREAT weekend!!!!

Hi Tracy,

How are you feeling, any symptons of ovulation yet? Are you handeling the Clomid ok?

I just got my blood work back, my Estrodiol is 127, the follicles are 13 and 10. I have one on each side. Not sure yet if the one will develope or not since it is a little behind.

Take care,
Lots of baby dust to you over the next couple of days.
Liz

 

deedle1006 - June 27

Hi Guys!

Today is the day. I haven't had any signs of af making her visit. I took a test on Saturday morning and got a BFN, but that was really early to take a test. I am going to call the Dr this afternoon and schedule a test for tomorrow morning. I will keep you posted!

I wish you guys the best of luck with your cycles!!!!

Deanna

Great to hear from you Deanna,
I have been thinking about you, hoping all is well.
I know you know this but it could be too early for symptoms. I know with my last preg I didn't feel anything out of the normal something just told me to take a test. I was getting married in 2 days and very busy. I didn't even know if I was late or not, but I went with my feeling and took the test. It was a BFP! I was in shock because I had no clue! Hopefully this is the case with you too. I am crossing my fingers!
Good luck tomorrow morning and when you are ready please drop by and let us know.
I will keep sending you good positive thoughts.
Liz

The results are in :(

it was a BFN. I knew that was the case before they did the bloodwork. My temp. went down yesterday morning. I am a little upset, but I will get over it. :-\

I guess I can look at this in a differnt light because I have a son. I know that we will get there again we will just have to keep trying. I think the problem is that when they did my hsg in Nov. doc said that I had pocketing in my tubes. The problem may be that sperm and egg aren't getting thechance to get together because the egg is getting caught in the tubes.

DH started a new job and we get really good insurance in Oct. They will cover up to 3 cycles of IVF and everything inbetween. We have decided to just take a break from medical assistance the rest of the summer and go back to the dr in Oct. Plus then we won't end up in the poor house. This past cycle was 1200 plus meds.

I wish you guys the absoute best luck and I will check in from time to time to see How things are going for you. I will continue to send positive thoughts and prayers to you.

Thanks for all of your support. I hope by the time I am back in the cycle game you have had a BFP! ;D

Take Care
Deanna
