August ICLW

August 23, 2010

Hi everyone! I’m a little late with this since I was out of town this past weekend (I think a lot of us were). And I didn’t have a chance to put it up before I left because I had the craziest week EVER. So now I’m playing catch up.

Welcome to my Blog. Here’s the short version of what goes on here:

I was diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Failure/Insufficiency last year. This means I’m running out of eggs and headed in to an early menopause. So I’m trying to get pregnant now. Because I don’t have many eggs left I was told that IVF probably wasn’t a viable option for me. But somehow, this month, on my very first injectibles cycle, I responded so well that my Inectibles + Timed Intercourse cycle got converted last minute to IVF. So things have been CRAZY. And this is on the heels of my father’s pneumonia (I take care of him). So basically, this ENTIRE summer has turned me in to a giant ball of stress.

But it’s all down hill from here. I hope. The IVF went spectacularly well. 6 eggs retrieved, 6 eggs fertilized, 6 eggs looking good at Day 3. 2 were transferred and 4 were frozen. So if it doesn’t stick this month I’ve got some spares. Now I just have to get through this nasty 2 week wait. 😉

UPDATE: Things just got crazier. The last time I participated in ICLW (my first) I ended up in the ER with my father. So I took July off from ICLW. And now it’s August and I’m participating again. And I’m back in the ER with Pops.

    Yes that is so crazy but I hope it works out for you! Maybe it’s better that you didn’t have time to stress about IVF… 🙂 Just stay calm and go with it. I’m hoping everything is ok with your dad. 😦

    Wow–congrats on the 6 embies! Praying that you get a BFM, as well as your dad.

    Happy ICLW!

    Yikes, I hope your dad is doing okay. I can’t imagine the stress of that during the 2WW of an IVF cycle. Wishing you all the best.

    Wow. You did so well to get 6 eggs from an IUI cycle and end up with IVF instead. I was the complete opposite, I started off with IVF but they didn’t get any eggs so did IUI instead (just in case).

    Wishing you all the best for the rest of your 2WW and beyond. Happy ICLW!
