10dpiui and looking promising

Hi ladies,

Just a few weeks ago I was on this board and looking at Susan's protocol for IVF and decided to find out what Saizen was. Turns out it is HGH and there have been some convincing studies this can really help the live birth rate for women 41+.

http://humrep.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/20/9/2536

As I've had 7 losses anything that can increase chances of a live birth is very interesting to me. So I wrote my RE about it and there was just barely enough time to add it to my IUI/injectibles cycle, though I used a less expensive brand called Omnitrope.

Anyway, it is still very early, I am only 10dpiui, but I started testing an 8dpiui to test out the trigger, and my lines have been getting darker instead of lighter. They're light, but pink. So I think I have more than trigger going on.

Anyway it is obviously very early and I've had many chem pg's, but I am encouraged by the fact that I got a pos HPT so early this time. The last time I got an early + like this was my only other clinical pg, with twins. Unfortunately I lost one at 9-10 weeks and the other at 16 weeks. But I'm hoping the HGH will increase my chances of a sticky pregnancy and live birth this time.

My beta is not supposed to be til Sunday and I'll get the results on Monday. I might sneak in for an early beta on Friday though if my lines looks dark enough.

I hope to be the next HGH success story here!

Thanks Michelle, Sue and Tiffany...I'm hoping for the best.

I am a little worried because I had some dark brownish reddish spotting today and implantation bleeding has not been a good sign for me in the past. Also, first tests weren't darker this am but tested with SMU and got a significantly darker line, and Pregnant on digital test. So far so good, with various worries, I suppose. Doing an early beta tomorrow but won't get results til sat, and probably won't be able to report on that til sun/mon. Here's hoping I can post in the BFP section!

Tiffany—Great to hear from you. How are you and little Brooke Emma doing? What cute pics!

So are you TTC #2 or calling it one and done?

That sounds quite good to me, stop worrying! I know, easier said than done. I hope your beta comes back really well, looking forward to hearing your news. :-)

Hi Jenna, I have mostly been in lurk mode so I can keep an eye on all the girls I have known on the boards for the last 3 years. We decided we will just "see what happens" re: TTC but I am not actively trying (who can time BD w/a 6 mo. old?) but if it happens we would be thrilled. As far as your spotting goes I had pretty strong spotting w/Brooke for the first several weeks but luckily she hung in there, but with your history I can certainly understand why you are worried. Hopefully your beta will come back super strong and put your fears to rest. You had 10 follies right? If so that is a lot so probably just some hormonal adjustments after all of the raging drugs/natural hormones in your system. Are you on progesterone? Take great care of yourself and let us know when your hear your great beta news!!!!

Hugs,
Tiffany

Michelle, Thanks, I hope all is well. I'm afraid after 7 losses in a row it's impossible not to worry :/ But trying to stay positive. Hopefully #8 is the charm.

Thanks Tiffany,

Glad to hear you are doing well. I imagine it's not safe to take DHEA while BFing, do you think you will go back on it after you stop? You are my favorite DHEA success story!

I am on PEO shots. The bleeding seems to have stopped so that's a little reassuring. It's just I read once someshere that implantation bleeding is a sign of weak implantation. Since I've had it on the chem pgs, it worries me.

I had 10 follies that looked definately mature and not immature or postmature, but it could have been 13-15. I had 11 over 17mmm and a bunch of smaller ones. They measured about 20 on trigger day and there were at least 5 or so other ones around 12-14 mm he said he didn't bother to measure. That's what PCO does for ya. So yes, my ovaries are certainly swollen and I'm sure I am a hormonal soup right now.

Pee sticks looked OK today. Off to go get an early beta now. Hoping I can post a real BFP soon.

Aw Jenna, I totally understand how difficult it is not to worry even after just one loss. I have had 6, but not all in a row, I have had 3 successes mixed in there but it is still impossible not to worry. All you can do is just to take it a day at a time (or sometimes just one moment at a time) and do your best to focus on the joys of that day. But then you know all of that already I am sure. Just know that we are all pulling for you and hoping to see that "official" bfp post very soon. :-)
