Cathie: Welcome Back!! Glad to hear the surgery went well. Sounds like the recovery was tough...I was thinking about you and praying for you.

I am currently in my first IVF cycle. It started out great...I had an FSH of 9.1, which was lower than when I had it done in April and it was 11.5. I know 9.1 is still borderline highe and the April result is still not good, but I was so happy to see it going down and not up.

Since then, the cycle has been all down hill. I'm setting up a separate message with the specifics to see if anyone else has had a similar problem.

Glad to have you back...we missed our fearless leader!!

Hi Cathie! Welcome Back!!

Glad to hear your surgery went well... just try and take it easy (I know, easier said than done).

I just had my first HSG test today; all is well. Fallopian tubes are clear and no obstructions. Uterine polyp, but looked very small so they will leave it.

Will be starting my first IVF cycle with my next cycle. In the meantime, DH and I have this one last try on our own starting this weekend!

Take care, glad you're back.

Welcome back Cathie! Glad to hear you are feeling better!

I am more of a lurker than poster, but today I am feeling so down. I was so hopeful for this cycle, even went for a beta yesterday after a + HPT. I don't get the results until tomorrow, but I started spotting today, and am afraid it's over. I'm just 15 dpo.

As I sit here feeling all the symptoms that make me think it worked this month, I am struggling with wanting to tell DH to go get a vasectomy to stop these continual chemical pregnancies.I just looked up at the plant on my desk and teared up. I realized I can't even keep a plant alive - what makes me think I can make a healthy baby at my age??? OK, no real connection - but that's how I am feeling.

I refused to take my vitamins & progesterone this morning - giving up. And by noon, my symptoms forced me to give in and I took them all. I want to give up and move on, and know that I can't. I can't bear to end my baby-making days with multiple miscarriages.

What's the point of being so fertile if I can't hang onto one little baby???
