I'm out this month. I just started spotting, and had a whole slew of BFNs this week. I'm pretty disappointed. Ethan was due to be born in just 3 days. I should have a baby, instead I have my period.
I guess the question is, after 2 unsuccessful cycles on Femara, do I try something else? What is usually the next step at this point? It's been 14 months, and I have no living children. I was never supposed to be off my MS meds this long (16 months now). My insurance covers everything up to IVF, and my parents are willing to cover that. I'm suddenly feeling desperate - should I be thinking IUI?
It must be so tough for you to be off your meds for this long. I know Jon was feeling the same way since he was off his meds for a long period of time and all the Dr's recommended that he needed to be on something, but nothing was good for ttc. But you know, IUI could be something you may want to consider?
So sorry Rebecca. I kind of know how you feel. More about the "I should have a baby, instead I have my period" part. We haven't gotten to the medicine part yet. Don't know if we ever will, it's an option if we have to of course. I would suggest asking your Dr. Maybe one more month on the Femara? I don't know much about fertility drugs.
I just wish you the best of luck in getting that BFP! In what ever option you chose.
I'm so sorry, Rebecca. I don't know anything about fertility treatments, but I wanted to give you . I know how much it hurts to be TTC after a stillbirth. It's like your world has been mixed up and all you can think about it putting it right. I agree with Stephanie, you should talk to your doctor about stepping up your treatment.
Does anyone use OPKs? We're thinking about trying that.
I use OPKs and think they're great. I've had a few months where I wasn't sure if it was actually dark enough and waited for it to get darker and it never did and we ended up missing the opportunity. So I learnt if you see the 2nd line almost as dark as the control line, you want to start BDing for the next while. I got pregnant both times while using OPKs.
I'm so sorry, I know you're time will come soon. I know it's probably been said and it doesn't mean much now, but when it happens, you'll know in your heart it's right. I knew subconsciously from the beginning with this one that this was my time. That he would make it. That doesn't mean I haven't freaked with every normal symptom and made a million L&D trips, but I just knew it would all work out.
It hurts so much now, but I know you won't have to wait too long. In my experience, once I quit focusing on TTC, it happened.
