9 weeks, the first OB/Gyn Appointment, and work knows....

Hello everyone.  I apologize for the delay in sharing posts.  Truthfully, I've felt a bit odd in sharing news.  Not because I am not happy with pregnancy.  I truly am.  I just know how hard it is for so many in our community who have not yet had their BFP.  I want to be sensitive to that, but I also wants to answer and share for those who have asked for updates.  So, I'll continue to place the disclaimer and we will see how it goes from here.

According to most of my apps and the doctor's office, I am 9 weeks, 5 days today.  Baby is no longer an embryo, but a fetus.  Wow.  It's still amazing to me to know that I am progressing.  Every once in a while, I find myself feeling great and I wonder if something may be off only to get nauseous at the smell of coffee (okay, I get it little one.  We didn't drink it before and you want to make sure I don't drink it now), which is in my office daily.  Then, I'm reminded all is well.

Things have been going pretty well.  My morning sickness is pretty contained though it hit a new high last week that had me lying on the couch feeling like I was on a ship.  That was not fun.  I was making rice and beans for dinner and the smell of the beans had me wanting to hide under a table somewhere.  Today, I still have sickness when I rise and if I don't have something in my belly every two hours, I feel a bit yucky as well.

I had my first OB/Gyn appointment on Wednesday.  The doctor is the same one who delivered our eldest.  She usually has patients see the NP until they are further along, but when she saw my name coming in for an obstetrics visit, she made sure to be there with me.  There were a bunch of hugs and praise.  (She is a woman of faith, like I.)  It made me feel like home and I am pleased to be under her care again.  Her daughter is also expecting and her due date is also August 27th!  I told my obstetrician that I would probably be delivered by her assistant and she thinks that won't be necessary. She is convinced that she will be able to attend to both lol.  We shall see!


First Obstetrics Appointment
We discussed the IVF conception and the wonderful #TTCgroups that I have befriended via social media.  I also gave her information of the fertility pharmacy.  The pharmacy the clinic uses no longer prepares endometrin and it was a blessing that I walked in and was able to give her an affordable solution for her patients.  Yay!

So, let's talk about announcing.  Well, S. and I have been pretty liberal with our close friends and family knowing.  Most have been really great about not sharing.  Others not so much.  And that's okay. They are thrilled for us and you can't get mad at someone for celebrating with you.

But work?  Work has had no idea.  I hadn't planned on telling them until we were safely out of the trimester plus a few days.  March 1st was actually my planned announcement time.  The same for social media.  Well, that plan went awry Wednesday.  I felt ill.  Super ill and bloated.  I was walking slow, sluggish in general, and just not my peppy self that my colleagues are used to seeing.  Every smell hit me and the fatigue was incredible.by 11AM.  I hadn't had a day that hard in a while and I still needed to get through the day for my appointment and some work the office was doing.

Well, I decided to go to the break room to see if yogurt would help what I was going through.  By the time I got to the room, I was next to exhausted and actually had to put my head in my hands.  Our program manager came into the office and saw me and questioned if I was okay.  She is a very sweet lady, hard working, and doing wonderful things in her career.  She's also super concerned and can worry if she suspects her charges aren't doing well.  I saw the panic and heard her refer to perhaps needing nurse or getting checked because I looked decidedly ill.  I didn't want to lie and I told her I would be better soon, as soon as I eat something.  The conversation continued and I finally told her, "no, it really is okay.  I'm expecting.  I'll be fine."  She hugged me.  That was an awesome response.  She was super happy for me and I told her that I was still burning midnight oil and getting things done, but that day had just thrown me for a loop.  She understood and was super understanding.  She promised to keep it quiet until I was ready to share.  And she did.  However, there was someone who observed the exchanged from outside.  She is also a sweet woman, but a grandmotherly type...loves anything to do with babies :)

She asked me the next day if I was expecting in the presence of another grandmotherly type and there we go.  So, our immediate team knows that I am expecting and everyone is thrilled.  The external supporting teams don't know and I intend on keeping it that way for quite some time.

So, because things are actually happening.  I decided to play the update game.  I'll place on a separate post for those who are interested.  I'm not yet committed to the whole weekly thing.  We'll see though.  Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend.  I'll check in with you later soon!

Hello everyone!  What a weekend we've had!  Saturday, we woke up to a nice combination of freezing rain and snow.  Oh joy.  I had no complaints though.  I'd been fortunate enough to get my hair done the evening before and was still wedding-tressed ready.  It was nice to lounge around with the family even though I felt a little off.  The nausea is getting a bit better, but the riding a ship feeling still exists for sure.

Sunday evening, after church, S. and I drove to the beautiful waterfront in Maryland to attend the wedding of one of his dear friends.  I can not say enough about how beautiful this wedding was.  She set the tone early in the year with her invitation on appy couple and the Pinterest board for the wedding attire.  Seriously, it was a beautiful affair.  Some may have critiqued, but you hope to get married only once and since you are the one spending the money, why not have the wedding you want.  I get it and was more than happy to get glammed up to celebrate love.

My brother and sister in love were also guests at the wedding and we were blessed to be seated with them.  We often travel together with our families, so it was wonderful just catching up with them without the little people.  We shared laughs about how, despite the bride and groom being DIE HARD Cowboys fans (insert boos from me here), the wedding was on Wildcard Playoffs weekend with the NFC Championships being played thirty minutes after the start of the wedding.  Yep, we're pretty sure the bride and groom weren't expecting the Cowboys to make it this far when they planned the wedding lol.  So, while everyone was having a great time, there was more than one guest seen visiting their apps for updates. Though to their credit, the score wasn't announced until the last play of the game.  LOL.  S. still got to see it at home since he recorded it.

S. and I stayed until well after the dancing got underway.  As a matter of fact, it was after midnight when we finally made it to the house and settled down.  Understand, I was sleep before head touched pillow that night.

Monday morning found everyone off to observe Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s holiday and had me up making a quick breakfast before leaving for my ultrasound.  I'm not going to lie.  I was a bit nervous.  As I've posted before, sometimes I don't feel this is real.  I am always thankful for the nausea because it reminds me that something is going on.  I went yesterday morning knowing that if all went well, it would be the last time I see the doctors and staff at our fertility clinic until we bought the baby back to visit or until we decided to excpand the family again.  This day was going to be our graduation day.

And then it wasn't.  Nothing wrong.  But when I walked in yesterday, the receptionist staff was surprised.  They'd called to say the doctor had a family emergency and all appointments had been cancelled.  No worries.  They left a message, but with my work number.  Since it was a holiday, I missed the phone call.  It's okay.  I rescheduled for 17 January.  So, hopefully the ultrasound will be held tomorrow.

I'm planning to swing by my baker and pick up a Graduation Cake that reads, "Thank you SO much!".  I also want to pick up a card to share some words of gratitude to the staff.  This journey would not have been possible without God and without the thoughtful and steadfast actions of the clinic staff.  They truly deserve it.

So, I plan on coming back to you on tomorrow with updated pictures of little one.  Pray for good news.  We'll see you soon.

IVF #2 9dp5dt: Cramps and spotting

Hi everyone.

So, I am trying NOT to get excited.  I am also very cautious in sharing this.  I have been cramping off and on for the past two days.  I shared a couple of Instagram posts about it.  They haven't been filling me with a warm and fuzzy.  Tonight, the cramps reached a fever pitch.  I was on the verge of tears because they really hurt!  I told S. that I didn't think this worked and went to the bathroom because it was time to take my Endometrin.  I went to the bathroom first and upon wiping discovered pink blood that only appeared when I wiped.  I immediately thought implantation bleeding as I remembered this vaguely from my son's pregnancy a decade ago.  I used the vaginal insert tool and when I withdrew it after inserting the tablet, there was a scant amount of pink there too.  I wiped again and nothing.  Then, I thought...too late for implantation bleed, right?  Anywho...

I flew down stairs and told S. that this may have just worked.  He wisely told me not to get to excited, but was smiling himself as I explained.  I still have cramps but it is accompanied by back aches.  The cramps now aren't horrible, but they are still there.

I still have NOT tested and I will keep my promise to S. not to.  I hope to not be disappointed on #beta day, but I can't do anything but pray and not stress now.  I won't be sharing this news on IG in a post.  I also won't share it with my two "real-life" #ttc cheerleaders as there will be no point if this isn't good news.

For now, I'm going to enjoy being pregnant unless proven otherwise.  And I am going to continue to joke with S. about baby names just in case.

Have a great night everyone.

IVF 7dp5dt: Announce away


Hi everyone. Nothing major to report on my TWW.  I am still experiencing period like cramps.  They are very dull and can on occasion be strong enough to make me notice, but other than that.  Nothing. I want to test so badly, but I promised S. that I wouldn't.  So I won't.

There.  That being said it's time to change subjects.   I guess I should start this post by saying the opinions listed here are my opinions and no one else’s. Some may agree. Some might not. But let’s respect our right to have our own opinions and differing ones as well. So, a couple of days ago, I logged onto Facebook and saw the most adorable Christmas announcement for a former co-worker of mine. It basically said that she and her husband-to-be had been naughty and were expecting a new arrival. This will be their first child. I immediately thought “how wonderful for them” followed quickly by “what a cute announcement”. (Seriously, the way they did it was seriously adorable). I’m very happy for her as I am for just about everyone when pregnancy announcements are made. But seeing the announcement kind of made me think about people who may view her announcement with pain and misery and contempt. It’s not directed to her. It is the hurt, pain, and resentment of those trying to conceive who are once again reminded that their body did not cooperate with them. I get it. Remember when I shared about the simultaneous pregnancy announcements from two separate sister-in-loves (law). That one was hard. 

I managed to smile through the announcement and even assuage some of their fears after they informed S. and I we were the last in the family to know because everyone ‘knows you guys are trying even if you haven’t said anything’ and they didn’t want to hurt our feelings. I genuinely didn’t want them to feel like they had to hide their joy from us. That would be horrible. A pregnancy should bring joy and I’d hate for anyone to think they couldn’t share that with us. But, admittedly, after they left I went in the shower and sobbed for quite some time. It wasn’t my finest hour.

When I saw the announcement the other day, I got to thinking about others who have recently announced their pregnancy. One friend just gave birth to her rainbow baby. When she shared her announcement, it was preluded with an explanation that she wanted to apologize for those who would feel hurt and that she understood. It continued that she wanted to share the joy of her rainbow without demonstrating “pregnesia”. I felt bad for her. It felt like she was apologizing for celebrating. I’ve thought about all of that in this TWW and I’ve come to a few conclusions.

1. I want my friends and family to feel comfortable announcing their pregnancies in my presence. Most don’t know the struggle journey that S. and I are on. We prefer privacy in that regard for a number of reasons. As exampled above, I’ve never want someone to feel they couldn’t share something so precious and amazing with me. I want to celebrate with them. Yes, there may be a distant sadness somewhere within me, but I assure you, it won’t be visible. This is a time of celebration.

2. If God allows us to become pregnant, S. and I will announce…but later. This journey is something. It has highs, lows, and what-in-the-worlds. I think I would like to get comfortable with the idea that our pregnancy is real and viable. I’ve seen people announce as soon as the line turns pink. AWESOME! I’ve also seen people wait until the last possible moment. GREAT! Whichever works for you, works for me. I think we would like to wait until we are entering or possibly well into the second trimester. I know anything can happen at anytime. I’ve seen it with friends, family, and associates. But I am truly hoping for great things.

3. Announcements should NOT be looked at with scorn or disdain. You can be hurt, but don’t direct it at the woman. A lot of these women who are posting are in fact TTC sisters who have prayed for a chance to announce themselves one day. Just because they don’t share their story doesn’t mean their joy should be diminished because of it.

I know some people still hate announcements and probably always will, but I believe it will all work out if we show each other compassion and not negativity.

Just musing. Talk to you soon.

IVF#2 4dp5t: Cramps...

Hello everyone.

Today is 4 days past 5 day transfer.  I've been doing fairly well with not hitting "Dr. Google" for every twinge and twang, but there are a few differences that I've noticed and am hoping mean great things.

Last night, I attended choir rehearsal in prep for our church's Christmas concert this coming Sunday. I noticed that I felt a small wave of nausea throughout the day, but chucked it up to the progesterone. While standing in the choir loft, I suddenly received a cramp so sharp and sudden that I actually said an audible "ow"!  I didn't feel it again for about forty-five minutes of so and then I felt a smaller one, slightly duller.  I thought that was odd, but didn't want to do symptom spotting.

I guess I had pregnancy on the brain even if I wouldn't admit it because I had some pretty vivid pregnancy dreams last night.  One that I remember well was the line progression on a series of four pregnancy tests.  Each day the line was darker.  I pray that's our truth.

This morning, I was awakened from my sleep with some pretty strong menstrual-like cramps.  Yep, it feels just like AF is around the corner and I was a bit disappointed.  I thought...so much for that.  But I decided not to dwell on it.

I've had those cramps off and on most of the day.  I am really hoping that means good things.  I have backaches and a small amount of nausea as well.  I know from experience that all of these can come from the progesterone.  But I won't lie and say I'm not hopeful.

I'm a bit tired tonight, so I won't hold you guys.  Have a great evening and I will write again soon.

IVF#2 2dp5dt: Conquering the TWW

Hello everyone! Today is 2pd5dt. I’m not symptom spotting as I feel it’s way too early for that. I am treating my body as if it is already pregnant. I’m making sure that I give my body nutrients that will assist in contributing to the babies nutrition. I’m also coming up with ways to beat the notorious two week wait. Today hasn't been so bad.

I did read a few blogs of other #TTC sisters who have gone through there before me.  Most received their #BFP at some stage in their journey.  A few didn't at all.  I read not to compare but because I genuinely enjoy walking the journey with them and also because it keeps me distracted.

Today, I was supposed to have received a call from my RE's office informing S. and I if there were any remaining embryos for freeze.  On the transfer day, our doctor informed me that we had 8 embryos dividing.  We transferred two.  That left us with six.  I was hoping to hear something today about how they've progressed.  So far...nothing.

This happened during our last cycle as well.  The office ended up waiting a full day to see if the embryos would continue dividing.  They didn't.  They all arrested and were discarded.  We received our BFN a few days later and are now in this cycle.  I can't help but wonder if history is repeating itself.  There is one exception.  I received an email from the cryopreservation lab asking what we would like to do with embryos.  But there was no mention of any having been preserved.  I don't know if that is a new protocol as we have already signed wishes for what we would want to have done if any survived or if we actually have some snow babies.  I'll be calling tomorrow for sure.

So that's one way to keep me focused off testing and symptom checking and focusing instead on other things.  It should be a bit easier than usual.  I have a lot to keep me occupied during this TWW. (See list below). I know my little ones will be on my mind more and more every day, but I’m determined to make everything beautiful for them and myself. No stress at all!

IVF #2 CD 18: Embryos on board

Shh! I’m home and resting in our bed along with our two little embabies who are resting quietly within Mommy J. We are officially PUPO (Pregnant until Proven Otherwise). This is the second time I have been able to share these beautiful letters and I am praying these will into PASP (Pregnant and Staying Pregnant) this time.

Unlike my last transfer, I was much better prepared and didn’t have the issue with almost wetting myself over and over again. Instead of 20-24 ounces, nurse A. instructed that I needed only a minimum of 16. So, at 11:50, I started drinking my water. When I made it to my appointment, I was still slightly uncomfortable, but nowhere near where I was before. What a difference 8 ounces of water make!

It was so different.  I'd only sat a few minutes in the waiting room before having my name called and being escorted to the patient's waiting lobby.  I was asked to remove my boots and to put booties over my socks.  A nurse verified my name, DOB, and SSN and I was asked to wait for another minute before being directed to the transfer room.  This room was located on the opposite end of where our last transfer was.  The nurse directed me to undress from the waist down and reappeared in the room shortly after that.  She informed me that Dr. C. would be doing my transfer for the day and right on queue he knocked on the door.  The doctor came in and informed me that we still have 8 embryos dividing and were ready to transfer one.  After discussing S.'s numbers and our past transfer, we agreed to transfer two instead.

Our babies...


After confirming the two, in walked our embryologist R. who confirmed my ID once again.  R. then went to collect the embryos in the catheter while I was draped.  Dr. C. confirmed my bladder was full enough for the procedure and we went to work.  It was over in a flash of light and my beautiful babies were on board.  I laid there for five more minutes and received discharge instructions from the nurse.  Then, I went to the bathroom, voided, and was ready to go.  

On the way home, I stopped by McDonald's for the fries.  I then came home and rested wrapped up in blankets and comfortably warm.  And that was that!

So, now there is nothing to do but wait. I have been munching on my pineapple and do plan to continue that for the next five days. I’m also going to enjoy this time. I’m going to try very hard NOT to stress. We have a lot of people coming for Christmas Eve and Christmas and I don’t want to panic about it. I should be okay because I won’t really get groceries until the 17th of December and that won’t be stressful (I hope). I don’t plan to cook everything until the day before and we should already know by then whether we are preggo or not.

Looking forward to keeping you in the loop! Have a great and wonderful day!

IVF #2 CD 17: Transfer Eve

Hi everyone!

It’s been a terrifically busy day today. This morning, I attended the retirement of a great family friend. He’s been in Civil Service for a few more than 30 years and is ready to enter into a new phase of his life. I love it and am thrilled for him and his family. Can I tell you how beautiful the retirement program was? It was just amazing.  I shed more than a few tears today.  Such a great man and such a wonderful man of faith.  After the retirement, I returned to work and made sure I got documents out the door in preparation for meetings next week (yay…meetings). I have to be honest.  I was pretty ready to leave.  Fridays make me want to leave work in expeditious a manner as possible anyway.  A cold Friday after an emotional charge of crying...yep, I want to call it.  Fortunately, it wasn’t too long before it was time for me to go home for the evening to prepare for the evening retirement celebration the family was having.

So let's start with the attire thing.  I had plans to wear this cure little dress with a coat for outside. Ummm....no.  After the weather I felt this morning, I decided that I would dress a bit more warmly and enjoy function versus fashion lol.

The banquet itself was awesome.  Kind words, good fun, awesome dancing.  It was a very enjoyable evening. Plus S. and I got quite a few cute pics together.  No complaints at all.  Even the cold was bearable.

Now that we’re home and everyone in his or her respective place, I’m prepping for tomorrow. There’s not too much to that except pulling out my clothes so I don’t have to tomorrow. I have my #TTC socks given to me by the beautiful @hopefulbb2017 and yoga pants. I know there are a host of people who hate seeing them in public, but when you are carrying the bloat I am, you rock them with no fear lol. I’m also making sure to have a pretty warm (and bulky) sweater tomorrow. It’s supposed to be pretty cold as far as the wind chill tomorrow. (YAY) LOL.

Other than that, I’m super ready. I am looking forward to transfer and hoping and praying that everything goes beautifully.

I’ll talk to you guys sometime tomorrow!

IVF #2 CD 16: Day 2 Fertilization Report

Woohoo! I have to tell you that waiting for your doctor or nurse to call with news of your babies is more than a little nerve wrecking. However, we received the call yesterday that all 11 embabies are dividing!! I am so excited. I really, really, am excited. Hopefully, they will continue to do so and we will have embaby(ies) to transfer on Saturday.

So, let’s discuss how I’m feeling today. Today I’m okay. I’m still bloated. I’m still fatigued. I’m still a bit sore in my pelvic region. But I’m much better than yesterday. Yesterday was brutal. I was tired. I mean really tired. I was also very bloated. I’d been drinking my Gatorade but it didn’t seem to be helping. I almost felt like I waspregnant already. Add to that the progesterone made my nipples a bit sore (sorry, TMI) and it was just a fun day.

Now, don’t mistake my sharing for complaining. Oh no! I’m happy. For some reason, I just feel like this cycle is different. I’m not too stressed. I am not on Dr. Google every moment. I am searching for other bloggers, but that’s because I like reading the experiences, not because I want to compare.

I’ve also made up my mind that I will absolutely NOT test during my TWW this time. I know. I know. I hear the groans, the “yeah, okays”, and see the eye rolls. But I think I did myself such a disservice last time. I tested on 5dp5dt and I saw that beautiful faint line. It was beautiful. I let myself get excited. Then, I tested the next day when I said I wouldn’t and while I still saw a faint line, it was much fainter than it had been the day before. I kept editing pictures and tweaking and inverting and worked myself into such a tizzy that on beta day I even made myself nauseous because my brain said I was pregnant. It made the crash and burn from the negative result that much more painful. Nope. I’m not doing that again.

So, my plan is simple. I am going to keep myself occupied with other stuff. I have plenty to do, so it shouldn’t be difficult. S. won’t be able to join me on transfer day because he will be with our son and daughter (for those of you new to the blog we have a 10 yo from a previous relationship (me) and a 2 yo we have adopted together). I felt sad about that last time, but I don’t this time. It was a very quick procedure, but I found that I appreciated having that moment with our babies by myself. I plan on completing the procedure, going to the car and thank God again for the opportunity even if it doesn’t carry me to the end. Then, I’m going to pick up an order of McDonald’s fries (not because everyone says to do, but because I think I will have deserved a reward for fight our area’s traffic). After I get home, I plan on spending some time with the family watching TV movies and staying quiet just giving the little ones a chance to snuggle in.

Sunday morning, I’ll enjoy worship service with my family and a nice yummy meal in the PM. I won’t need to plan too much in the way of TWW activities because it’s Christmas season! There will be tons to do including the family newsletter, Christmas cards, hair appointments, Christmas parties, etc. Hopefully, the TWW will fly by and beta will be here before we know it.

I’ll keep you guys posted, of course. Have a wonderful day.

IVF #2 CD 14: Our Retrieval Story

Hello everyone. Like last time, I’m late in this post, but I definitely needed the sleep. Retrieval began yesterday right at 8am. There were quite a few things that were like IVF #1, but some differences too. So, here is the play by play for IVF w/ ICSI #2.

This time, S. and I were out the house on time at 4:45 am. We had no traffic on the way to the RE office and arrived right on time. We went upstairs and found four other couples already seated. We filled out our paperwork and sat down in the lobby until one of the nurses called my name.

We went back in the pre-op area, presented photo IDs, and verified we were who we said we were, and then I was weighed in. I disrobed to change into the hat, booties, and gown that was presented to me. ID bracelets were provided and I was left with S. to pass time before he needed to leave to provide a sample.

Unlike last time, I didn’t have major cramps. I felt a little full, maybe bloated, but not the doubled up cramps I had from last time. I was worried about that. As time wound on, I did feel some twinges and some discomfort, but not the pain of before. S. told me that because I’d gone through it recently my pain threshold was probably higher. Maybe he is right. I heard a first timer in the room adjacent to mine ask if it was normal to be in this much pain and the nurse assured her it was. No biggie.

In a while, I met Joy, my anesthetist for the day. She set up the IV using the veins in my hand, which was a first for me. My preference is definitely for the IV in the arm. It tended to tug less. 

Hand IVs are not fun
While I was getting adjusted to that, S. was finally called to contribute his portion lol.

I have said before that my husband said it is the most professional thing he has ever experienced. He shared some of what was in the room and how it was set up lol. All I could say was “ewww” but marvel at the efficiency.

Shortly after he returned, my nurse Hope (yes, Hope) came in and told me it was time to depart. I gave S. his departing kiss and I went into the room. The first thing the nurse said was how much they loved my socks! (Thanks @hopefulbb2016!). She then said I was in great hands because I was in the room with Hope, Joy, and Love. (Apparently the additional doctor’s name translates to Love!). They had me lie to the edge of the table, place a mask on my face, and I don’t remember anything after that.

Well, scratch that. I remember waking up beside S. and telling him I love him. He couldn’t hear me because I was murmuring and I remember saying it again. S. tells me that I scared him because he did ask me to repeat what I said and I whispered “I love you” and then looked as if I completely passed out. He actually said he thought he was going to have to assist in something until I started softly snoring lol.

I wasn’t in horrible pain when I woke up, but I did need more assistance to walk to the car than last time. I slept the entire time in the car minus once when S. woke me to ask if I wanted him to pick me up IHOP since neither of us had eaten (yes!). He picked it up and I don’t even remember walking in the house. I do remember eating. I also remember going to my bedroom with my heating pad and then I was out!

I didn’t even remember what the nurse said was our number of eggs retrieved. S. told me it was 19! How awesome is that! 

19 eggs retrieved!!  Woohoo!!
I am so happy. I feel really good about this cycle. I really believe good things are going to happen this time. Tonight, I am a bit sorer than I was last retrieval. My little one accidentally grazed my tummy and that hurt a lot. I am also still nauseous and still moving a bit slow.

Other than that, I’m doing pretty well. Stay tuned for our fertilization report!

Now back to Gatorade and Pom juice.

Talk to you soon.

IVF #2 CD 12: T'was the night before retrieval

Hello everyone!

A lot has happened and, while I've been updating on IG, I haven't done the best of jobs updating on this cycle.   So, let me bring you all up to speed.  I posted on IG that my right side follicles were growing like champs, but my left was a bit more sluggish.  That didn't really concern me at first because it has always been a bit more sluggish.  But my right side started breaching 20 mm on Friday and by yesterday (Saturday CD 11), I actually had one trying to nudge 22.  The ultrasound technician actually spoke out loud that she wondered how much further "they would be willing to push it".  My nurse A. happened to be at the weekend monitoring location so after the ultrasound was complete, I went into a separate room with her to discuss trigger information.  I actually left skeptical because my left side still hadn't caught up.  There was one 19 mm on that side.  Everything else was 14-16.

Fast forward to yesterday evening while lounging with S. and the phone rings.  The nurse tells me that I was going to trigger that night at 8PM!  My retrieval has been scheduled for 8AM tomorrow and S. and I have to be there at 6AM.  Wow!  I was NOT expecting that.  I suppose I should have been though.

I am on the same protocol from cycle 1 and I triggered on CD 11 then.  So, I guess it really is history repeating itself.

Tonight, I have developed some sort of stomach bug.  I suspect it is from the burger I ate last night.  It came back immediately after I ate it (TMI).  Today, I was feeling a bit blah, but figured it was just my being tired.  I took a nap after church, had a bit to eat and my antibiotic for tomorrow, and then twenty minutes later I'm in the bathroom.

Ugh.  I am hoping it will run its course tonight.  I can't take anything after midnight and I am rapidly approaching midnight.

Here's praying tonight will calm my belly and that tomorrow will be okay.

Have a great evening.

IVF #2 CD8: Daily Monitoring

Hello.  Today is CD 8, Stims Day 6.  I went for my blood work and ultrasound this morning and discovered that my follicles have been busy trying to grow.  My estrogen count is 1,443.  I have 12 measurable follicles.  My right side is continuing to overachieve with seven follies.  My left side is chugging right along with five.  At the moment, I'm looking like this...

Left Follicles                                                     Right Follicles
  1. 14.6                                                          1. 15.9
  2. 11.8                                                          2. 15.9
  3.   9.0                                                          3. 15.8
  4. 10.7                                                          4. 11.4
  5.   9.5                                                          5. 15.1 
  6. ----                                                            6. 11.4
  7. ----                                                            7. 11.1     
   The sonographer told me I would be in daily monitoring from now until transfer unless something changes.  I already made my appointments.  Things appear to be progressing along.  My back is starting to kick my butt and my level of fatigue is also rising.  I'm about to start inhaling the Gatorade again because these headaches have been returning and there is nothing fun about them.  There is also the nastiest nausea that I have ever felt.  Considering how there has been a stomach virus going around, I'm not too sure of what this is.

IVF #2 CD7: Tired!

Hi everyone!

Today was the introduction of Cetrotide.  So, I woke up this morning, tried to get everyone out and on time, and then realized I was about to walk out without my morning dosage.  So, I managed to pull everything out of the fridge, and without numbing myself with ice, took my needle.  Ugh.  It's a good thing I was in such a hurry this morning.  I didn't have time to focus on the HURT!!!  UGH!

It wasn't until I was halfway home this PM when I realized that tonight I'll be taking three shots before I lay head to pillow....and I'm already exhausted.

Tonight, I'll be taking Gonal-F and Menopur (double dose).  So how do I feel?

Well, honestly, I'm sleepy.  I am so tired, so fatigued.  I feel exhausted and I would like nothing more than to take a nap.  I remember taking my last shots at 7:30 because it worked well with our schedule. Because my schedule altered this cycle, I'm taking the meds at 9:15.  I wish I could take them earlier now.  I really want a nap.

Other than that, I'm great.  Not much cramping today, so I'm not even sure everything is working today.  But I assume so.

Let's pull today's stats and see what tomorrow's bloodwork and ultrasound bring us.

I'll talk to you later.

IVF #2, CD 6: New Cycle, New Symptoms, New Adjustments, and New Players

So, today is CD6, Stims Day 4. And apparently my body is just itching to overachieve. I went to my BW & US appointment this morning to see if any of my follies are starting to progress. The sonographer said she counted 13 on my right and 10 on my left! 


BUT...don’t get too excited. Only four of those thirteen are measurable right now. I have one 9.9 cm follicle on my left side. My right side, which loves to overachieve, currently has 11.5, 10.6, and 10.3. Looks like we’re trying to hit that 18mm mark sooner than later J. My lining measured at 5.3 and I’m all about making that as healthy and thick and beautiful as possible if it means providing a nurturing place for our baby(ies). I am all positive for this cycle.

If you have followed the blog for a while, then you know last cycle, my estrogen count on stims day 4 was 724. That was MUCH higher than they wanted it to be and they adjusted the amount of medication I took. Well, this time, I’m performing a bit better at 588, but still higher than the RE likes on stims day 4. So, I’ve been adjusted again.

Tonight, I will adjust my Gonal-F by 37.5 ius. I’m only taking 112.5 ius. The Menopur will remain the same dosage tonight BUT tomorrow a new friend joins the party….CETROTIDE!

(Okay, for all the nerdy people like me, I totally heard the ominous echo and had a vision of a Cetrotide transformer showing up. I love my imagination).

Anywho, I start one vial of Cetrotide tomorrow AM. Now, what is tremendously awesome is comparing my first cycle to this one and seeing the similarities. Like my last Stims Day 4, I am starting to develop a headache. I had a nasty one hit me almost immediately after taking my Gonal-F/Menopur cocktail last night. It went away but today, about 1400 (2pm), I started having one live behind my eye. It almost feels like a migraine but isn’t. Also, returning to the party, just like last time is the bloat. I guess the follies really are trying to grow. I certainly won’t complain!

Nurse A. just called and confirmed all of my meds and scheduling. I return to the office on Stims Day 6, IVF CD 8, and we’ll see what happens then. Here is today’s breakdown and I hope you find it helpful.

Stims Day 4
  • Gonal-F 112.50 ius
  • Menopur 75.00 ius
Stims Day 4 Symptoms/Side Effects
  • Headache behind right eye
  • Felt first “tugging” of ovaries. Never knew what my #ttcsisters were talking about until I felt it
  • Short stabby prick in right ovaries
  • Bloated
Stims Day 4 New Developments
  •  Estrogen count is 588
  •  Gonal-F reduced by 37.5 ius
  •  Cetrotide to be added 29 Nov AM

  • Bloodwork and Ultrasound-IVF CD8, Stims Day 6

IVF #2 CD 4: IVF #2 has officially begun (Stims Day 2)



Hello everyone!  Happy belated Thanksgiving.  I should have written a couple of days ago, but it has been so busy in my household that it was next to impossible to do so.  I have my IVF #2 Baseline blood work and ultrasound on 22 November.  Everything was quiet and "beautiful" per the sonographer and I left with my new medication calendar and follow-up appointment scheduled.

While at the RE's office, I met a young woman who was just starting her IVF journey and she and I were sharing experiences as her husband has male factor infertility numbers similar to S.  The young woman seemed appreciative of the fact that I was willing to talk to her and it reminded me of our IG community.  It's nice to have people who understand and can relate to what we're walking through.  I told her she was more than welcome to talk to me about it in the future as well.

Fast forward past the 30+ people in our home and the controlled chaos of the Thanksgiving holiday (not to mention the gratitude of God) and yesterday found me at the start of ovary stimulation.  The first dosage was a bit tricky logistics wise because I had to excuse myself from all of our guests to take the dosage.  I also had a couple of changes from our first IVF cycle.

And so it begins...
Last cycle I was started on 225 iu of Gonal-F and 75 iu of Menopur.  I responded much quicker than expected and the RE ended up reducing my Gonal-F to lower my risk of OHSS.  (My estrogen numbers were high!). This cycle, I have been started on 150 iu of Gonal-F and 75 iu on Menopur.
I'm interested in seeing how my body will respond though I have to admit I have already felt ovary twinges and I'm familiar enough with them by now that I know it's not my mind playing tricks on me.

Here's my breakdown for the Stims Day 1:

Stims Day 1
  • Gonal-F    150 iu
  • Menopur     75 iu
Stims Day 1 Symptoms
  • Definite recognizable twinges in my ovaries, particularly right side
Stims Day 1 Developments
  • N/A
Next Appointment(s)
  • IVF CD6:  Bloodwork (Monday, 28 Nov 2016)

I'll see if I can post again tonight with an update on stims posting today.

Gearing up for IVF Cycle 2: The Follow-Up


Hello everyone. Oh my! I had no idea that it had been so long since I have posted. I sincerely apologize for not writing, but truth be told there hasn’t been much to write about. You were there via Instagram for the devastating blow of #BFN after the faint positive from the blue dye test. (Note to self: Never EVER use blue dye again). Then, there was the celebration of my ttc sisters who succeeded on their IVF journey. That was exciting and fun and sad at the same time. But I am still thrilled for them. Now, it’s back to reality.

I started birth control for IVF cycle number 2 on November 3rd. That tiny little sphere was basically my “here we go again world” war cry. And here we are taking it day by day. So what does today bring? Today brings intake. Yesterday was our follow-on What in the World (WITW) appointment.

 The news gave me a lot to think about.

The new pill regime begins

I talked to Dr. G and her response was the protocol worked beautifully. We produced 12 good quality eggs, 9 of which were mature. Four fertilized. Two eggs divided quite nicely. One was a beautiful blast, the other only slightly behind. They were implanted. One of the remaining stopped growing pretty quickly. The other actually looked like it was going to continue dividing. It was in the same stage as the slightly behind blastocyst when it stopped dividing as well. And nothing remained.

I asked if it was an egg issue, a sperm issue, or something else. And she explained that it could have been anything, but if she had to guess, she would have guessed S.’s sperm count. It was low. Really low. Much lower than it had been for the IUI and that was significantly less than 1M. When counting sperm per grid, S. only had 7 moving per grid. I’m linking this Mayo clinic page that breaks it down much better than I, but here’s my layman.

Sperm is looked at under the microscope to see how many normal sperm appear in squares on a grid pattern. If they use a big 4 corner squares gril, they are looking for a number x50K to determine sperm per ml. If done by 9 big squares grid, they are to look by x22K to determine sperm per ml. S. had 7 or 350K. A normal minimum is 5M and my husband (if I understood correctly) had 350K after sperm wash on the day of retrieval. 

Not exactly a great number

 All of that being said, Dr. G reminded me that it only takes one good sperm and one good egg for success. She also said that with counts this low the very DNA of the sperm can be affected and the embryos can stop developing if the pregnancy will not be viable or if there will be genetic issues. She suspects that is probably what happened to us despite the blastocyst and morula looking very good.

We’ve gone to one of the top specialists in the nation for male factor infertility and he said the S. had no findable issues. I think it’s time for a follow-up. Either way, we are pushing forward and I pray everything works out. I’m a couple of days away from ordering some of the meds and our community has been able to help with others. I am investing in no stress and just focusing on God.

We will conceive.

IVF#1: Fail


Our first IVF has failed.  It didn't work.  It was not a success.  It failed.  Writing those words has to be one of the hardest things I've done in a long time.  I couldn't gauge it.  With the IUI, I had a feeling it didn't work.  The count was so low.  Even the doctor didn't have a true look of confidence.  But this time...This time it was different.  Dr. G. was so excited about our embabies.  She called them beautiful.  She called them gorgeous.  The blastocyst was ready.  Its little brother (I assume) was equally beautiful.  I knew one or both would take.

I did the pineapple core and POM.  I rested after retrieval and the evening of transfer.  I was up the next day because the office wanted me up and moving.  I didn't overexert myself.  I stopped jogging. I made sure to eat and take my meds.  I talked to them.  I encouraged them.  But the babies didn't stay. They went back to heaven.  They went back to creation. And the procedure failed.

I waited all day for the phone call.  When nurse A. called, I dialed S.  We'd agreed that we would find out together.  And then she said "Unfortunately" and I knew.  Less than 1.  A negative one.  My beta was a negative one.  I'm not quite sure how a number can be so empty it's negative, but it is and it belongs to me.  I didn't cry. I felt a flash of anger and disappointment wrapped in a white hot ball and I embraced it.

When the call ended, I verbalized "I'm done" and I simply shut down my office computer and walked out the door.  I drove to a parking lot and sat there for about ten minutes in complete silence.  No music.  No radio.  No words.  I just sat there and then I continued the rest of the day.

When S. got home, I didn't want hugs or to be coddled.  I just wanted space...white space, quiet space.  I still haven't received it.  I recognize that my husband is grieving too, so we've embraced. But I haven't been able to open up in what I'm feeling yet.  I honestly don't know.  Someone asked that I not lose faith.

I won't.  Whatever happens in the rest of this journey, I know and believe that God is my rock and in Him will I trust. I recently saw a young woman in our community curse God the other day when she lost her child at ten weeks.  I prayed for her.  Her pain was so real and palpable.  I know she is hurting and I know she professes to be a woman of faith.  I pray that she will be able to seek God again and let Him comfort her in loss and strengthen her is His grace.  We were never promised a life without trouble, trial or tribulation.  If she is reading this blog, I am praying for you and praying peace for you as well.  I didn't lose at ten weeks.  I didn't get to see the heartbeat or hear it beating with promise.  I don't know that ache nor can I pretend I do.  But I loved my babies as you loved yours. I truly believe that there is a purpose in this pain.  While I don't know that we will ever know on this side what that purpose is, I believe that it is for our good no matter how horrible that sounds.  And it is okay to be angry and hurt and disappointed.  Praying so hard for you!!!

My husband is currently sitting beside me being a wonderful husband.  My hormones are a mess and I have been cramping off and on.  I'm simply awaiting Aunt Flo's return.  We talk with our doctor on Tuesday to address where we go from here.  With no babies making it to freeze, we will have to start all the way over.  With most of my medication exhausted, it will be another larger payment that we aren't ready for.  But we will continue.  No matter what.  

Thank you to everyone for every kind word, every encouragement.  You have no idea how much this means to us.  I haven't met any of you.  But I consider all of you a part of my journey and I'm thankful to walk with you.  God bless you and keep all of you.

I will be in touch.

IVF CD22: The TWW (4dp5dt)

You can say that again!

Can I be really open with you all? I hate the TWW (two week wait). I do. I just do. Since the first month of ttc naturally, to the first IUI, to this very first IVF, I absolutely abhor the TWW. Sigh. I am trying VERY hard not to symptom spot, but I can’t help it. I sit and work and I’m bloated. Am I bloated from the progesterone or am I pregnant? I’m super sleepy after lunch. Is it the “itis” or am I tired because I’m pregnant? I’m feeling this very peculiar pinprick pain in one specific location in my ovaries. What is it? Pregnant or gas?

Ugh, seriously. I’m about to drive myself up a wall. Fortunately, I’ve not mentioned any of these symptoms or non-symptoms to S. He’s the sane one and always says “let’s not get too overexcited. We don’t want to get our hopes up”. True. We don’t, but we do. I really want to know what our baby(ies) are doing in there. I know the key is to keep your mind occupied. Fortunately, it seems like that will come sooner than later today.

Our eldest has his Back to School night (only it has been changed to Family Night to encourage everyone to come and try the new curriculum module activities). Great. I’ve no problem with that at. We’ve even managed to carve out some time with our son’s teacher. We’ve noticed some behavior we aren’t too thrilled with that we are attributing to hormones and growing up. He isn’t too excited about turning in assignments or focusing. He comes by that naturally. I’m so easily distracted sometimes. It doesn’t surprise me that he is too. But, it’s becoming a concern for S. and I because we want to make sure he has a successful and productive academic year. If we can get everyone—teacher, student, parent, administrators, etc. on the same page, we think it will be great. So, after the Family Night, S. and I are going to sit and converse with his teacher a bit about the best way to proceed going forward. Our goal is to make sure that he is doing everything he needs to do to succeed and that we are doing everything we can do to support him and his teacher.

Tomorrow, I’m taking our fur babies to the vet to have their nails trimmed. I don’t know what I was thinking when I scheduled at 10 in the morning, knowing that I’d still have to come to work, but navigating the time will keep my mind off things.  I'll sign back on after our meeting tonight.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm back.  The parent teacher conference was productive, but not amazing.  We need to keep the eldest more focused and so we're going to try some things at the house to allow the school to supplement.  We need him to do better and be better.  Nothing bad.  Nothing wrong.  He's just being a little boy, but we need him to be more focused as it will definitely benefit him in the long run.

Now, it's back to the PM dosage of meds, my teacup of Pom, and my evening pineapple core.  Anything to help these babies stick.  I read online via IVFConnections due date calendar that today I should be 3 weeks and 2 days.  So, that's obviously way too early for me to even consider testing this week.  Maybe I'll try and convince S. to do so next week.  Then again, maybe not.  

Have a very great evening and I will write you all again soon.

IVF CD21: And then there were none (3dp5dt) ...


So, there I was trying to convince myself that I absolutely would NOT google track symptoms or lack thereof.  I also promised myself that I would not stress.  No matter what happened, no matter what came, no matter what I thought or may not have thought about symptoms, I would not stress!

Then, I received a phone call.  It was late.  I was supposed to have heard from our nurse A. yesterday regarding the remaining embryo and if it made it to freeze.  When I didn’t get a call, I thought nothing about it.  Today, I decided to call her and her voicemail let me know she was out of the office on conference this week.  No biggie.  I figured I’d leave a message with the front desk when I returned from lunch.  They beat me to it.


One of the nurses, G., is filling in for A. while she is away.  She called and informed me that we actually had two remaining embryos trying hard to divide after transfer.  They tried.  One made it a bit further than his brother.  Then, they both stopped.  No more dividing.  The clinic gave them 7 full days just to see if the extra time would help them divide.  It didn’t.

So, there are no embryos to freeze.  If this doesn’t work….if the two beautiful babies who are currently (hopefully) attaching and growing decide not to stick around, we will have to start all over.  And just like that, I felt the cramps and the sadness.

I know I shouldn’t give up.  I’m not.  I know I shouldn’t count our transferred babies out.  I haven’t.  But I feel loss for the emrbyos that didn't make it.   I’m still hoping and praying we have a great result and soon!

Have a great evening!

IVF CD19: A thief! (Non-ttc related)


 *This post is non-TTC related with the exception of the at-a-glance section at the bottom.  

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well, if I were looking for a way to keep my mind occupied as we enter out #TWW, I’ve located one!
This morning, S. discovered that someone had broken into his work office and stole his personal laptop and professional video camera (both used daily for his job). The video camera was an industry pro and utilized as he handles his company’s media, editing, and layout. The laptop is his and is loaded with his professional software (he self-purchased) and all of that cost a lot. But even worse, (because tangible material stuff can be replaced), the laptop has our family’s personal information on. Socials, addresses, budget spreadsheets, appointments, etc. All of it. And someone just walked away with ALL of it.

When he told me, my mind wanted to panic. But I managed to sigh and take a deep breath. The discharge instructions and our nurse have clearly said NOT to stress during the next few days. I couldn’t get crazy. So, I listened as S. and I created a divide and conquer plan. I’ve contacted the credit bureaus and have initiated fraud alerts to prevent new accounts and credit from being opened. I’ve also contacted my companies’ security office(s) to make sure they are aware of it in case anything untoward happens.

The good news is I had a colleague tell me that the operating system that S. uses is one of the most difficult to encrypt and even if by some magic they were able to use the computer, they wouldn’t be able to access the files without being a hacker extraordinaire based on the additional protocols we use. That made me feel better. The bad news is the computer also had some sentimental pictures and things on it that are irreplaceable. Those things S. can’t get back and as he isn’t a big fan of clouds. It can pretty much be counted gone.  Also, are the notes and projects he has already started for his job.  That's okay though.  He is still in good spirits and I know it will be okay.

I hope everyone has a good evening and I will write again, soon.
