Another round of IVF?

We met with the RE today and he thinks I should try another cycle. He thinks I will regret not doing it and he feels I'm not giving DH the chance to have a biological child. He understands why I wouldn't want to do a 3rd cycle. He told us all about donor sperm but doesn't want us to rush into anything. We are on a break until the summer and then we will make a choice.

PGD Results

They got the results from the PGD this am and all my embies had an unbalanced translocation. I have nothing to transfer. They had 9 embies to test ( 7 from this cycle and 2 snowbabies from last time). I can't believe this, I thought I would have 1 or 2 to transfer. My heart is broken. I will not be doing IVF again. Going to look into donor sperm and do an iui cycle or start saving for adoption.

7 eggs fertilized. I was hoping for more. I know 7 is good but I can't help but be disappointed.

Better than last time

I am back from my ER. I had 14 eggs, double what I had last time. Everything went smoothly this time thank goodness! I am a little crampy but nothing too terrible. Looking foward to my fert report tomorrow.

Luck of the Irish?

I triggered yesterday and am scheduled Wed @ 7:30 for my ER. Hoping that I'll have some luck of the Irish since it's St. Patrick's Day. My mother thinks I should wear all green. HAHAHA

The shot went well. I iced for 15 min before and I didn't feel a thing. It was bleeding a bit but nothing major.

Praying that I have lots of eggs!

Grow Follies Grow

So far I have been stimming for 5 nights and have been going to blood work and U/S every freaking day. After what happened last cycle the are watching me closely so instead of everyother day U/S it's every day. It works then I'm happy to oblige.

Tonight I will add the Ganirelix to the mix. The nurse thinks I still have about 4 more days till I'm ready to trigger but I think it will be sooner. Wishfull thinking maybe?!?!? I'm starting to get uncomfortable now. I'm crampy and just feel those follies growing.

I have 30 follies all together but 15 are all around the same size and those are the ones they are watching. She said there are 3 more that will probably catch up so she is thing 18 total. WHOOOHOOO much better then my 7 last cycle. Hopefully they will all produce a healthy little egg.

So in very sad news, we had plans last night so I was kind of rushed when I was doing my injection and by accident I pushed the plunger before I stabbed myself and lost half the liquid and had to start over!!! Ihad to throw out 2 bottles of Menopur and 2 bottles of Bravelle. I wasnted to scream. Hopefully I'll still have enough and won't have to order more because of my screw up.

Going to go give my follies a pep talk!

IVF # 2

Yestersday was day 2 of my cycle so off to my baseline I went. Everything looked good so we started injections last night. I took 3 Bravelle and 2 Menopur. A lot more meds than the last cycle, hopefully that'll do the trick. We are looking at an estimated ER date of 3/16 which would make it an ET date of 2/21.

I will update after a few days and give you a follie check and bitch will all my symptoms.
