Officially Pregnant

Our infertility, miscarriage, IVF, and pregnancy journey x 2 (still waiting on pregnancy #2)

Medication donations?

Has anybody used donated meds? I don’t even know where to start looking. We have run into another financial snafu. Our insurance money has run out and everything is out of pocket now and on top of that our nanny (my mom who we pay) is moving as soon as she can out of state so we will have to pay more than what we pay her to find someone to watch Evan. When it rains it pours. 


A positive and a negative 

Long story short I had a faint but there positive today (6 days late) followed by light bleeding all day. 

I just can’t win sometimes. 

Dr office won’t do bloodwork til next week. We’re out of insurance money so I didn’t call the clinic plus they’re closed. Can’t do anything until tomorrow. 

All forms of positive mojo accepted. 


Just kidding

As I was looking at pictures of other crazy poas ladies testing out their trigger good ol shark week started. I’ll be Mia for a while as we decide if we want to do IVF again or more iuis. My schedule doesn’t allow for us to try until summer so this will give us time to figure it all out. Hopefully going to lose some lbs over the next couple months as well. See you all soon. 


Still inconclusive 

Smu and there’s still a line. It’s just not getting any darker….


Remaining hcg booster from 7 days ago or new hcg that’s slow growing….only time will tell. Trying to get out of my crabby funk and let this ride. It’s out of my hands.

It would happen to me


14dpiui light lines still 6 days after 2500iu booster shot. Know that I need to test this morning (they told me to wait til 3/1….ha!). Pee in cup. Put stick in cup. Count to….I don’t know what I counted to in my sleep induced haze but it wasn’t long enough because the stick didn’t budge. Pee already dumped in potty. No more pee left! Now to wait til the Hubs gets up….

Starting to see things…

I hate the end of the tww. Not that the beginning of it is any better.  I’ve been testing out the trigger and this morning it was barely visible. Like super squinter. Poas when I got home from work (1.5 hour hold) because I have issues and the squinter looks just a tad darker than this morning. Struck me as odd as a short hold would look darker than a fmu. We will see in the morning I suppose. The only things I’m noticing is vivid dreams the past few days accompanied by crazy acne and emotional meltdowns. 


So….now I’m confused!

We did this 3rd iui on cd18. We did a booster shot on cd25. I’ve been taking 200 mg of progesterone daily since the day after iui. I’m due for af tomorrow. So…should I expect it tomorrow or have we essentially lengthened my lp? Should I expect it more on cd32? Sigh. Why can’t this be more straight forward?!?


6dpo and nothing to report

Seriously. Nothing new. Keep reading other things in your feed. That is all.

Valentine’s Day Baby Making

We went yesterday for IUI #3. How fitting right??  I love that our actual doctor did the procedure and he made me giggle the whole time too. (“Don’t worry. These little guys sat through their educational video. They know what to do!”). 

Hubs count was way up this time which was awesome too. We were up to 14.1 million compared to 8 and 8.8 million. Maybe it was the full three month cycle of co-q 10, or the couples massage we went for the night before, or just that we abstained an extra 12 hours more this time. I don’t know, but I’m happy with it. 

I started my progesterone suppositories this morning. I’m to take one in the am and one in the pm. Seeing as how this iui landed on cd 18 I’m curious to see how my body reacts. They are not as bad as I’ve read, but they are certainly not very pleasant. 

Still having an added bonus booster of hcg (progesterone overkill?) next Sunday and I think I may test it out. Part of me wants to and the other part tells the crazy part to get her shit together. Will try to update with dpo nonsense and go from there. Coming off a four day weekend tomorrow so the busyness will start back up as soon as I get there.
