I'm baaaacccckkkk! You knew I couldn't stay away for long.
After 6 IUI's, DH and I took a break from TTC for about a year. We couldn't deal with any more disappointment, and had to wrap our brains around the clotting disorders that we discovered. After lots of talking and praying, we decided to move forward with IVF. Well, even that's been a challenge! During my annual, my OB discovered at 10cm, yes, 10 cm mass in my abdomen. It was a cyst that had gotten out of control. I had surgery for it in July and recently was cleared by the RE to begin the IVF workup proess. We signed the financial paperwork today and have our patient education Thursday. We're tentatively on the schedule for the Sept cycle, with the retrieval dates of Sept 10-28.
I'm on folic acid and a baby aspirin for the clotting disorders now. Hopefully they'll help us. During the baseline IVF labs, we discovered my thyroid levels were off, so I start Synthroid in the morning. I have to go for repeat labs in 30 days, I don't know if they'll let me start stimming before we get the results of that test, or if we'll have to wait. Even if we have to wait we should be able to hit the September target dates.
So, that's my history in a nutshell! Angie, I'm glad to be back, and hate that the board is so quiet these days.
