Hi, ladies, early check-in this week since I'm gonna be out of town for the rest of the week!!
This is a check-in for those of you (or your SO) who are pregnant as a result of TPR including donor sperm, donor eggs, donor embryos, gestational carrier, surrogacy, or any combination of those. Lurkers are welcome to come in and ask questions or become part of the check-in!
Point of clarification: I am using 'surrogacy' to mean traditional surrogacy (using the surrogate's eggs) and gestational carrier where the carrier's eggs are NOT used. They are sometimes referred to as 'traditional surrogacy' and 'gestational surrogacy' respectively.
1. Where are you in the process?
2. How are you feeling?
QOTW: What's your nursery theme?
If your status changes and/or you want to be removed, please let me know.
MFI diagnosed Fall 2014; SA zero since Winter 2014 medicated IUI with donor sperm: 1 cancelled cycle, 5 IUIs, 5 BFNs circling back to IVF with mTESE (because I'm insane); still exploring adoption too --------------------------------------------------------- "Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light." ~Dumbledore --------------------------------------------------------- avatar updated with credit to the creator

I'm 15w5d today with our little bean. I go in tomorrow to have my harmony blood work redrawn since the first sample didn't have enough fetal DNA to run the test. Hopefully the results will be back by late next week. I just heard back from my nurse at my RI's office. My progesterone level had dropped to 39, so they are having me go back to two prometrium a day. I was really hoping that I would get to drop prometrium this week. Other than that I am just trying to power through the day. I have been having fun sinus issues that are kicking my butt right now.
QOTW: We don't have any nursery theme picked out yet. We will probably wait until we find out if this little stinker is a boy or a girl.
TTC #1 since August 2011 DH (32): SA is ok, slightly low morph, normal SCSA Me (32): Slightly low P4, hostile CM, carrier for CF, high NKC, High TNFa, heterozyogous mutated Factor XIII, and +APA October 2012-August 2015: 4 failed IUIs, 3 failed IVFs, 2 failed FETs w/donor embryos, 1 freeze all IVF, 1 Failed FET, and 1 cancelled FET November 2015: FET w/ DEm #3 Transferred 1 perfect 6AA blast
Baby girl arrived Feb 12 at 9:14 after four hours of active labor and many more hours of early labour. DW was amazing. We walked the halls to encourage baby to move down, and she spent an hour in the birth tub before moving to the bed. She used the nitrous but otherwise no meds. She is my hero! We came home later the same day and since then there has been little sleep but much love .
Low Ovarian Reserve (low AMH), poor egg quality, abnormal EFT (glandular developmental arrest, endo). TTC with open ID donor sperm. Non-bio mommy to DD (born to DW 2013). IUIs 1-7 = BFN. IVF #1 Sept 2014: 8R, 5M, 3F, 5 day transfer of 1 morula = BFN. IVF#2 Jan/Feb 2015 13R, 11M, 9F, 5 day transfer of a 5AA blast, BFFN. FET#1 (DW as carrier) May 2015 5AA & 4AA = BFP! DD2 born February 2016
I am 17w3d today! We have our big ultrasound next Tuesday and I am nervous and excited. Feeling pretty good. I need to go buy new bras as I only have one that fits. I guess there could be worse things lol! I love reading all the updates here! Thanks again.
