Hi Ladies! I know it’s been forever since I last posted. I’m so excited to hear of the thread’s first baby arrival! Congratulations BBluck on your beautiful twin girls!!!
Arbor, I’m sorry to hear this last part of your pregnancy has been such a roller coaster. I can’t imagine how much you must be counting down the days until your precious boy is safely in your arms. It sounds like you’re being well take care of. I hope the next few weeks go by quickly and are uneventful. Will be praying for you both.
MyssThang, Happy to hear things are progressing well with your pregnancy. You’re in home stretch!!
Jenn, Congratulations on a girl!! I hope things have calmed down since the sch.
Holding, I’m so excited you are on your way to a new cycle, new hope and new chapter!!! That’s so neat about the facial recognition. I had no idea that existing in the world of IVF. Technology is really amazing. I’m sorry to hear your DH hasn’t found work yet, but it sounds like you have a good plan in the meantime.
Jencat and everyone else, sending lots of positive thoughts your way…
AFM, We got another disappointng blow back on October 30th. Once again, my lining did not properly grow and I developed fluid in my uterus during FET prep. Our cycle was cancelled 6 days before we were scheduled to fly to Denver for our transfer. Needless to say, we were incredibly disappointed.
The hardest part was coming to terms with another holiday season without a baby on the way. On top of that, Thursday is the year anniversary of delivering our sweet angel baby. DH and I are going to spend some time in the memorial garden where we scattered the ashes, walk on the beach and put up our Christmas tree together that day to reflect and remember. It is really hard to believe we haven’t gotten pregnant again by now. I never imagined that after being pregnant 4 times in 14 months we’d go so long without being sucessful again. It’s crazy to me that we have 11 chromosomally normal embryos in the freezer (what’s supposed to be the hard part) and my body doesn’t want to cooperate with FET prep! It’s so frustrating.
Because of some work obligations for both my DH and I were are going to start bcps with my cycle in January and hopefully do a FET in the first half of March. CCRM has a couple different protocols to address the issues I’m having, so at least there’s a plan of action. My next cycle they will give me injections of estrogen to try to kick start my lining. The good news is most of the time they can eventually figure out how to overcome these complications. The bad news is it’s trial and error so it make take numerous cycles for them to figure it out. Worst case scenario, we have to use a gestational carrier.
We are staying postive that we will be in the majority, and there is a successful FET in our future. In the meantime, there is a lot of chocolate and wine in my holdiay future.
Thinking of everyone :grouphug:
