Looking for more members here who'd be interested in joining a meet-up group on Thursday evening (once a month). Also, we can start a weekend group as well. Feel free to message me.

    Oh Lumnay my heart aches for you, the dreaded another year older and nothing to show for it... I know exactly how you feel and it is the shits, my birthday hopes for you is for you and the hubs to do something fun - dinner, movie, bowling and thoroughly enjoy yourself and try not to think about everything going on with your IF world. Happy Birthday my friend, I'll be thinking of you.

    Thank you! You are very kind. I quietly worked all day even though all I wanted was to stay home and sleep. Today would have been the due date of my 1st FET, hence the drama. (Hahaha) I'm sure I'll be fine tomorrow.

Has anyone ever had their progesterone level drop and still carried to term? My level last week was 36 and one week later it's 26. Still in the normal range but lower. I'm on progesterone support twice daily and my betas have been increasing well. There always has to be something to worry about.

    Are you still with Dr. Auyeung? what does he say about this? I would trust his opinion. Good luck!

    I got pregnant naturally and am being followed by an RE closer to home. I take progesterone suppositories vaginally twice daily and it's still in the normal range. I will ask about increasing the suppositories.
    Thanks ladies.

I'm on the down-reg part of an FET cycle and I realized this morning that I forgot to take my BC yesterday. So I informed DH that we had better not have sex or we could get pregnant. And then we laughed and laughed....

what do people think of this cord blood storage thing?

    I don't think cord blood is automatically stored here. From what I recall, we have to sign something to allow that.

    It is sometimes possible to do both delayed cord clamping and cord blood storage, but not always. We had requested to do both, but had an emergency C-section so I have no idea when the cord was clamped, but they were able to get enough cord blood to save. It's one of those things that is not likely you'll ever need, but if you can do it then why not.

4 bloodtests in the same vein is enough, I think. Going to switch it up tomorrow so I don't look and feel like a heroin addict lol.

PG announcements are usually so hard for me to swallow, but today a friend share maternity photos, I had no idea she was PG. She's older, and single and has experience a great deal of trauma in her life. I'm not close enough to ask but it's most likely she used ART to get PG. I could not be happier for her.

    :) wonderful for her. I try to always tell myself that they could have struggled and I just don't know. Then I don't feel as badly. It's not too often my friends tell me they are trying or anything so I can make up any story I want about them lol

    I think with the endo scratch they actually don't send anything from the "biospy" away for analyis. It's just a scratch of the lining to promote implantation. At least that was the case with my endo scratch.
