    Howdy Ladies!

    This weekly list is not meant to take place of your wonderful posts and updates, but just to let others know where you are in your TTC journey--especially for those who've just arrived here and are on unfamiliar shores.

    ***Now in Two Parts. Graduates are in Part 2 Below!***

    (Becky) Beckyatmoms
    Took last BCP this morning! Go in for US and bloodwork tomorrow and start stims on Saturday. Estimated ER 12/3. This is a new protocol for me so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for better quality embryos!

    Candice (CandiceF83)
    Clomid cycle day 3-7 with HCG trigger shot. 1st IUI on Saturday 10/15. Lots of discharge since then. Dont know whats going on inside of me. Going in for beta on Friday (10/28) morning. I am so anxious. Baby dust to you all!

    Cassy (livelaughmoe)
    After 4 cycles with Clomid, we are trying IUI with Femara, HCG and Progesterone suppositories. Our first cycle was unsucessful with a BFN last week. Today is day 3 of the femara. Going in next week for follicle study and IUI. Fingers crossed.

    Danielle (moselyd36)
    Miscarriage 9 weeks. 10/12 D & C. Waiting for levels to return to zero.

    Erica (Erica0708)
    FET on 7/25. Beta 8/8 - Chemical pg.

    Hoping4thebest11 (hoping4thebest11)
    I officially switch insurance plans as of January 1. I made a Drs appt for January 4th which is coincidentally the projected 1st day of my cycle so the hope is for IVF in January.

    Kate (frankfortkate)
    We actually did get into the September adoption group! We're 3 weeks in. Starting to work on the mounds of paperwork and the scrapbook to show birthmothers.

    KL0124 (KL0124)
    Went in for u/s 11/2 and still having cyst issues, so still on bcp to help it shrink. Follow up appt on 11/28 to see if we can go ahead with IUI #1. Grrrrrrrr!

    Knpete (Knpete0407)
    Just finished our 2nd round of IVF. Canceled cycle, didnt respond well to meds. Same thing happened first time.

    Kristin (ksay6306)
    Went in for baseline US for IUI #3 and the cycle is a no go. I have 6 cysts (3 on each side). At this point (7/18) we are done with any treatments and we are going to start paying off our debt and saving. We plan on re-evaluating the beginning of next year to see if we could still do IUI or IVF and then go from there.

    Von (Von66)
    IVF. 7 follicles, hopefully at least 4-5 retrieved. Scheduled for 6/4. Due to my age (44) I know chances are low, but hoping for the best.

    Ellie (leji1)
    I'm 6wks 2d pregnant. I underwent natural cycle FET (which I highly recommend!) on 10/23 and got a BFP on 11/1...of 842!! We transferred two embryos and our last u/s a week ago showed 2 healthy sacs.
    We go back tomorrow (11/17) to see if there is a heartbeat. Based on the nausea I've been having, I'm expecting to see our babies grow! Still cautiously optimistic though...haven't told anyone yet but are hoping to break the news to our parents before Christmas.

    Jen (jlm76)
    BFP (July)! Had my first u/s yesterday...twins! Two great heartbeats. Best of luck, ladies! I'll be thinking of you lots and checking in to see how everyone's doing. (19 weeks along as of 9/19)

    Jennifer (jlhill88)
    First u/s this morning (8/16) and we saw 2 sacs with yolk sacs! RE said my EDD is 4/12/12.

    Kari (kzim517)
    1st Ultrasound (7/13) went great. Repeat in 2 weeks and hope to see heartbeat.

    Kerri (KLC1018)
    BFP 7/08! Had our NT Test on Thursday (8/25/11) and everything is great! I'm actually ahead of schedule developmentally, at 12w4d today. I want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who provided support on here and I will still be lurking and hoping for lots more BFPs across the board!
