I will be! I'm on the BCP right now since I have high LH and they need to suppress me first. We have to use donor sperm and are in the process of choosing a donor. I'm really excited and really nervous.

Becky (34)  Unexpectedly widowed in Feb.  Married to an amazing man named Chris.
TTC #2 (his first) since our wedding in July 2011.
Dec 1, 2011- Found out he has azoospermia (no sperm in SA.)
Jan 2012- First consult at fertility clinic.
March 2012- My tests show high LH but everything else was normal. His LH/FSH were high, testosterone was really low. (4.2)
May 17, 2012- Official Dx of testicular failure and NOA. Given the option of mTESE, TESA or using a donor.
June 7, 2012- Urologist is seeing us again per our request. We need him to answer some questions about the procedures and testosterone.
June 27, 2012- Saw RE and decided to proceed with dIUI. Told we needed one cycle on the BCP because of my high LH.
June 28, 2012- Started BCP for 21 days. Did pre-IUI micro and blood testing on July 3rd. Told they should be in on time for IUI in early August.
July 21, 2012- CD1. Called clinic and found out my cycle was canceled. They messed up and my file wasn't ready. They forgot to draw vit D and some other results are missing.
August 9, 2012- Nurse left message saying they cannot do this cycle either. Now it will take 2-3 MONTHS for DH's blood tests before we can use donor sperm.
August 10, 2012- RE called. DH has a reactive Hepatitis C blood test and they are trying to figure out if he's got an active infection or was exposed in the past.
August 23, 2012- He's Hep C NEGATIVE! Phew!
October 2012- Latest SA results still shows azoo, but we're glad the testosterone looks normal now. dIUI after 21 days on the pill. Clomid for cd3-7, LH is too high (17 and 14.6) and progestone getting too high. Had 3, 13.5mm folliciles and my lining is 8.6. CD13- Lining was good, triple layer at about 9. Now I just have one 17.5mm follicle on my left side.
October 17, 2012- dIUI  canceled. Clomid didn't work, estrogen too low, LH was normal again and progesterone was off too. Now we need an appointment to talk to our RE again to start over.
Dec 2012- Saw RE and we have to do IVF/ICSI, even with a donor. So, we decided to throw in a TESA with donor backup. Bloodwork this cycle, BCP and mock in Jan and hopefully a Feb IVF/ICSI/TESA!
Jan 2013- Mock done, start BCP and ASA on Jan 11.

 
IVF #1
Mock done, teaching visit done.  Started Suprefact on Jan 30.  AF arrived on schedule.
Baseline done, starting Gonal-F and Luveris Feb 11.
Stim day 4-  1 follicle at 11mm, 40 more under 10.  My lining is already a triple lining and at 8.6
Stim day 6-  8-9 follices between 11-13mm at least 20 more under 10mm.  This doctor saw my lining at 6.3?   Encouraged to walk because my circulation to my uterus wasn't what they wanted to be this time.  No idea what that means.
Stim day 8-   14 follicles.  All measuring between 11 and 15 with more under 10.   Lining is over 10.  Circulation is good again.   They are letting me skip my day 9 appointment. 
Stim day 10-  TRIGGER tonight!   I have 14 between 15-21mm, a few more at 14 that may catch up.  Lining is over 10.   DH's TESA is tomorrow.
Feb 21-  No sperm found with TESA.   ER tomorrow with donor sperm.
Feb 22-  ER was successful!  Collected 18 eggs.   7 from my right and 8 on my left.  We can skip ICSI because the donor's sperm is great.  Crossing fingers for a good fert report tomorrow.
June 2013- Updating. My husband, Chris, passed away unexpectedly of Sudden Arrhythmia
Death Syndrome just hours after my ER on Feb 23.  Had 14 fertilize.  9, 5-day frozen blasts are at the clinic waiting for me to make some decisions.  Looking at a summer FET, seeing IF psych to make sure I am emotionally ready.

 

FET #1

June 28- teaching appointment, second to last day of BCP.  Start suprefact the next day.

July 2013-  Cycle canceled due to HGSIL (bad pap) and needed LEEP in October 2013.

Hi MapleBecky, I've never heard of them using OBC for IUI before, but I guess if you have a high LH, that would make sense, you don't want to end up with too many!

Dillydally, good luck on Tuesday! Fingers crossed!

Hi MML, are you using clomid again this round?

AFM, I figured I would be starting my next cycle at the end of hte month as my cycles are normally aound 30-32 days long. BUT aparently when you stop using puregon before O, your body gets confused because I stopped puregon last Saturday and today AF shows up! She's a wicked Posted Image but I'll take her early since it means I can get going again sooner!

Thanks for the welcome Dandem! glad you'll be trying again soonPosted Image

Tomorrow is the big day!!! I got my best follie count ever on Friday so I am pretty excited!

I've never taken Clomid, but last IUI the gonal f made me break out like I was in my teens and I was so bloated none of my clothes fit. This time around it only made me bloated on the 4th day and skin is in check, so much better:)

Hi everyone,

Now I am waiting (not so) patiently :)

Good luck in the TWW Dillydally and Izzy's Mom! FX

I had a bit of a roller coaster ride this morning... I went in for my CD3 BW&US and they found two cysts on my R ovary. Those are the 2 follicles that I had from last cycle, only now they were 3cm each! The nurse said it might cause this cycle to be cancelled as well, but it would depend on what my bloodwork came back at and they would call me and let me know later today. I was so bummed when I left the office this morning thinking I'd have to wait another full cycle to see if they resolved themselves. But i jsut got a call from the nurse and my levels are low so I am good to go! I start stimming tonight at 100IU Puregon. Yay!

Great news Dandem! For me, not so good. Beta was negative. But we are going to do another cycle...so I will become a part of the July/August group if all goes well!
Me: 39 DH: 41

TTC since Sept. 2008
Nov. 2009 - DH - motility and morphology issues
Dec. 2009/Jan. 2010 Clomid, Ovidrel, & IUI - I react horribly to Clomid, stick it through - produce 2 follies
mid Jan - BFP!!! Can't believe it!!
Feb. 14. 2010 - M/C...not a Happy Valentines Day - I am devastated to lose this little one
April 2012 - start TTC again; FSH is 18 plus right tube looks blocked DR is concerned
May 2012 - DH numbers have drastically improved!!! Vitamins/exercise/no heat all paid off
May 2012 - my FSH is 15 - IUI is cancelled; fearful I will not have any eggs - I'm devastated - first time it was him, now me?
meet with DR - do AMH test (supposed to be more accurate than FSH) decide to do IUI irregardless of FSH #'s although DR thinks I won't respond
May 2012 - Have 2 acupuncture treatments
June 16 2012 - day 3 start of 200 ml Puregon
June 21 - swelling in hands, feet, breasts, & abdomen - severe pain go to ER - cyst burst
June 22 - u/s & blood work - I am responding (yay!), but no sign of over-stimulation; told to take dose of Puregon
June 22 - clinic calls & tells me my E. numbers look too high - they are afraid I'm overstimulating told to not take next dose
June 23 - u/s & blood work - four follies but all on right side; sono showed blockage but laproscopy 4 years ago showed both clear
June 24 - Ovidrel shot @ 10 pm

Hi Swifty,

I am at McGill for my IUIs. I cannot complain about time. I think the one appointment that was tough to get was the one for my HSG and that is not performed by the reproductive center. I usually get an appointment with my doc for a week later and the rest pretty much when I need them (U/S and IUI).
If you have any other questions, I'd be glad to answer them:)

ikswew, Sorry to hear about the BFN. I'm glad you will be doing another cycle, good luck!

Fingers crossed for everyone in the 2WW!

I'm officially a junkie! I shot up in the Turtle Jacks bathroom last night Posted Image It was either that, or skip dinner with a bunch of girlfriends and I decided that my infertility wasn't going to steal girls night from me too.

Hi everyone

Baby dust to those of you on the 2ww! Had u/s this morning, there was a 1.5 leftover follie? I didnt even realize that could happen! Now they might cancel cycle. Waiting for bloodwork phone call for that plus fsh#.
Me: 39 DH: 41

TTC since Sept. 2008
Nov. 2009 - DH - motility and morphology issues
Dec. 2009/Jan. 2010 Clomid, Ovidrel, & IUI - I react horribly to Clomid, stick it through - produce 2 follies
mid Jan - BFP!!! Can't believe it!!
Feb. 14. 2010 - M/C...not a Happy Valentines Day - I am devastated to lose this little one
April 2012 - start TTC again; FSH is 18 plus right tube looks blocked DR is concerned
May 2012 - DH numbers have drastically improved!!! Vitamins/exercise/no heat all paid off
May 2012 - my FSH is 15 - IUI is cancelled; fearful I will not have any eggs - I'm devastated - first time it was him, now me?
meet with DR - do AMH test (supposed to be more accurate than FSH) decide to do IUI irregardless of FSH #'s although DR thinks I won't respond
May 2012 - Have 2 acupuncture treatments
June 16 2012 - day 3 start of 200 ml Puregon
June 21 - swelling in hands, feet, breasts, & abdomen - severe pain go to ER - cyst burst
June 22 - u/s & blood work - I am responding (yay!), but no sign of over-stimulation; told to take dose of Puregon
June 22 - clinic calls & tells me my E. numbers look too high - they are afraid I'm overstimulating told to not take next dose
June 23 - u/s & blood work - four follies but all on right side; sono showed blockage but laproscopy 4 years ago showed both clear
June 24 - Ovidrel shot @ 10 pm
June 25 - packing my bags to go to TO for IUI in am! a bit of cramping from Ovidrel but nothing too serious
June 26 - IUI at 11 am - three follies 11, 17, & 19 - E2 levels good - DH's numbers good -
June 27 - the dreaded TWW begins... I'm already going crazy & its only day 1
July 11 - Beta is negative... sniff sniff... round 2 begins...
July 12 - start taking natural supplements - Royal Jelly, frozen Wheatgrass Juice, CoQ10

July 21 - trigger tonight with IUI on Monday....
Aug 8 - Negative again - Round 3 - It does feel like a boxing ring & I do feel like I've just been knocked down. I'm so sad.
