@dixie0892 @Kalala How are you both doing? I am 6 dpo and trying to hold out until 12 dpo before I test.
@perry261 1 dpo
@dixie0892 Good luck! Hopefully this will be our month!
@perry261 you too. I really hope it is too
Hi ladies @perry261 @dixie0892. BFN for me this month. Trying again next cycle. Hopefully 3rd times the charm. Good luck to you both. Fingers crossed. Lots of baby dust!!! ❤️❤️
@kalala sorry to hear that. I had a BFN as well. Im moving on to cycle 5. I hope we both get our BFPs this time.
@perry261 inseminated last 2 nights... fingers crossed. Good luck to you as well!!
@Kalala Good luck! Have you done two vials each time? I am only Cd4 so I have a while to go.
I’ve done 2 each cycle. Yes.
@perry261. Yes 2 each cycle
This is our 4th frozen ICI attempt at home, we did 6 months of a known donor with no luck, so here's to cycle 10! Got my positive opk this morning, added a digital test this month that showed 'High'. We've got two vials this go-around, going to use the first one tonight, and the next one tomorrow, hopefully around the same time the digital shows "peak". Oh, and tomorrow's my 33rd birthday, so here's hoping for some extra luck.
@amandzor Good luck! I am turning 33 this month as well.
@dixie0892 @kal @amandzor How is it going ladies? I am on 4dpo today for cycle number 5.
Hi @perry261. 3 cycles BFN. Going to stop
for a little while. Maybe start again in a few months. It’s been very stressful and disappointing. As I’m sure you know.
how are you?
@Kalala I definitely understand. If I do not get a bfp this cycle, I am going to take a break as well. I think my body needs a break from all the fertility meds. I didn't ovulate until CD 22 this cycle even with meds. So I think my body just has had too much.
@perry261 - BFN unfortunately. This was my last attempt before we return to my wife and a known donor. We'd done six months with her before, and found that swapping carriers after a few rounds helps reduce stress. There's so much pressure and I'm both disappointed and relieved that I can have a break and still continue our TTC journey.
Fingers crossed for you! Keep us updated.
@amandzor i agree with needing a break to down stress. Goodluck going forward. Do you prefer the known donor route?
@perry261 - Thanks, I appreciate it. We started with a known donor (my brother) last year around this time, trying to get my wife pregnant. But when we swapped carriers I obviously had to find a non-relation, so we started with NWCryo. There are pros and cons to both.
Obviously, with a known donor, it's much less of a financial burden, plus you're dealing with live specimen that potentially lives longer than frozen. But we also can't be sure about counts and motility as we haven't had him do an SA.
We're very fortunate to have someone in our lives able and willing to help us conceive, but it's still a work in progress!
@amandzor That is really neat that you would both be genetically related to the baby.
