My First Sono

Nov 8, 2009 @ 08:13 AM – by SEO Admin
We had our first sonogram and imagine our surprise when Dr. Nackley said we are having twins!!! We knew it was a possibility, but I never imagined we would be that lucky. After getting over the initial shock, we are both very excited.

Repeat Pregnancy Test

Oct 22, 2009 @ 04:53 PM – by SEO Admin
After my IVF cycle resulted in a biochemical pregnancy, I didnt think it would ever happen for me. I was surprised when my repeat pregnancy test went up just the way it was supposed to! I am shocked and still dont quite believe it. We are both very excited but dont want to get carried away until my first sonogram next week. I think seeing something will make it seem more real.

Lumps and Bruises

Oct 12, 2009 @ 05:40 PM – by SEO Admin

With the exception of being longer than an IVF cycle, this FET cycle has been so much easier that I can hardly believe it. My transfer was the same as the IVF cycle. I have continued the progesterone injections with a few incidents. The nurse recommended that after the injection I move around for about 20 minutes. Twice I have not followed this advice and lived to regret it. When I dont move around, I get a hard lump that feels very sore and lasts for 4-5 days. The nurse recommended a heating pad which I have been using every night and it has really helped, even when I stay active after the injection. I have also had a few that have bled and created dark bruises. They dont hurt, but look quite garish. I decided to be brave one night and try injecting into my thigh. It wasnt as bad as I thought it would be and has given me two more injection sites to rotate. And a few times, some of the progesterone has leaked out after the injection. The nurse has assured me this is normal. My

FET and IM Progesterone

Oct 1, 2009 @ 09:01 PM – by SEO Admin
My husband and I met with Dr. Nackley after our biochemical pregnancy and decided to proceed with an FET. I was surprised to learn that an FET calender is 1.5 months. I thought it would be the same as an IVF cycle, about 3 weeks. I have been on Lupron and Estrace and it's been the same as it was with my IVF cycle. I have a huge needle phobia and have been counting the days until I needed to start IM progesterone. Last night was my first progesterone injection. I expected excruciating pain. I followed the online instruction video and the injection was no worse than any others. The progesterone stings a little, but not as bad as I thought it would. The nurse recommended that after I give myself the injection, I move around for about 20 minutes to help the oil disperse through the muscle. The injection site feels a little bruised, but I've had no other reaction. I never thought I would be able to do something like this. Maybe it's beginners luck, but I feel very optimistic.

Biochemical Pregnancy

Aug 24, 2009 @ 10:26 AM – by SEO Admin
My HCG level dropped considerably and the nurse informed me my pregnancy is biochemical. My husband and I are disappointed, but knew this was a possibility when the repeat test didn't rise appropriately. Luckily, we have frozen embryos to try again. We have a consultation with Dr. Nackley this week to talk about an FET. Despite the disappointment, we are looking forward to the next step because it will be one step closer to our goal.

Repeat Pregnancy Test

My repeat pregnancy test did not rise the way it was supposed to. Dr. Nackley wants me to repeat the test tomorrow. She says at this point that it could go either way. My husband and I have all our fingers crossed and we are both anxious and nervous to see what happens.

My Pregnancy Test

Aug 19, 2009 @ 08:38 PM – by SEO Admin
I cheated. The anxiousness was overwhelming and I decided to take a home pregnancy test yesterday. It was negative. I was very upset and frustrated. My husband has been very supportive during this entire journey and he continued during my meltdown. He kept reminding me that the whole process had probably been a shock to my body and we had frozen embryos to try again. I went to CAR this morning for my real pregnancy test. Imagine my shock and surprise when the nurse informed me it was positive. We are both so excited. My advice to anyone: save yourself the heartache and don't cheat. It does no good.

Embryo Transfer

Aug 18, 2009 @ 08:02 PM – by SEO Admin
We had good embryo development and were able to transfer two and freeze a few for future treatment. Despite the mock transfer, I was extremely nervous when we arrived for the embryo transfer. I took the valium and within 20 minutes my nervousness dissipated. The transfer went very smoothly and felt just like the mock transfer. We returned homeand I spent the day reclining like I was instructed. I felt a little bloated the day after the transfer, but since then I've felt normal. Now we are anxiously awaiting the pregnancy test.
