Letrozole was a bust but I kinda knew it would be. Giant period started yesterday. Looks like I'll be starting my long lupron protocol this cycle with a stim cycle next cyle. I can't wait to get these eggs out so I can stop taking 20 supplements a day. The DHEA has completely wrecked my skin and I read you shouldn't take it for too long and I've been on it for countless month just waiting for an IVF. Silly me even purposefully made myself wait 90 days when I started taking it back in the summer. Oh how I didn't waste those precious months! Also, I think I'm going to cycle regardless of TSH to get these eggs out. I am pessimistic about a fresh TRANSFER anyways (0 for 2 on fresh, 3 for 3 on frozen...I don't think it's a coincidence). Since eggs take roughly 90 days to make I'd literally have to wait 90 days AFTER my TSH is back under 2 to do an egg retrieval to get eggs that weren't impacted by my 4.4 TSH. Ain't nobody got time for that. I am not waiting til Spring to cycle. I'll lose it! So looks like I'll be shooting up with lupron in just a few weeks if I have anything to say about it!

- After an 8 year battle with infertility and countless struggles, our family is finally complete. This blog chronicles the journey it took for us to start and build the family we always wanted. Background on the blog (started in 2012, just days before I found out the embryo transfer for our son worked).... I decided to start a blog after realizing I have only been able to make it through my TWW's (two week waits) with the help of Google and with the openness of other women suffering from infertility sharing their own stories and giving others hope. I have time and time again found my exact symptoms on other women's blogs and felt an overwhelming sense of calmness they provided me. I thought it was time to pay it forward and hopefully provide this same thing to other women on their own journeys.
