Hi Plm,

How are you?? How have you been since the last i heard from your post message? I am doing okay. Not feeling so well myself.. :confused: I am on clomids, 100 mgs for days 3 to 7. I am doing Follistim injectibles along with IUI this month.. Keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well.. I didn't tell anyone in my family because I am not sure how the outcome will be. Just DH and I kept this to ourself.. Well, now you know and if this doesn't work. I don't think I will proceed more into infertility treatments.. First of all, it's very highly costly and I don't have that much $$$ for it.. :eek: Secondly, my body is not very well on the medicines.. Kind of have side effects like nausea and feeling dizzy. :yawn: Don't worry too much.. Just enjoy your pregnancy and I will pray that you have a healthy and safe delivery... :) I hope soon I will be able to tell you the good news but until then I will keep on praying and that things will come my way.. Take it easy and hope to hear from you soon.. Take care.. Bye!!! :angel:

Hey Plm,

It's nice to get updates from you.. :) Yeah, I agree that fertilty meds are very high costly but since in my case, I only got one fallopian tube that is good.. That is the reason why I wan to try the follistim injectibles along with IUI.. Wish me lots of luck and I'm praying each day to get good news.. I will keep on praying that you have a healthy and safely delivery of your new born baby.. Let me know what the sex of the baby is.. I know it's going to take 4 months for that to find out.. I can't wait to find out what the sex of the baby is.. hehe.. ;) DH's insurance is 80/20 which means 20% out of pocket with doctors that are not in our network.. The follistim 300 amps is $200 itself and that is not consider doing IUI.. I think the estimate cost will be $600 or so.. I went to get my ultrasound yesterday and the dr. was putting me on clomids 100mg for day 3 to 7.. He found 3 follicles but the measurement is still very small... under 9 mm which means, DH will give me follistim injectible on sunday for 50amps.. Then Monday will go in for blood test and ultrasound in the afternoon to see if there are any changes in my follicles... I will let you know what happens more... As of now, I'm trying to take it easy and relax...

Yeah, your early trimester is going to be tiring and lots of nausea or vomitting depending on each person's perfernces.. I'm happy to hear the baby is doing well.. Yeah, I bet you must be very excited to get ultrasound each time hearing the heart beat of your baby... hehe... Sometimes, a person have to go through a lot in order to pay off at the end... Just like your story, it has brought me to believe that there are hope and miracles in life... Just have to believe in god and wait patiently... I will pray all goes well for you and don't worry too much... Enjoy being pregnant and buying new maternity clothing now... lol :D I will try to think postive and put my head ups at all times... Thanks for the encouraging words....

It's been a hectic day for me today.. :rolleyes: I went in for blood test at 9am and then returned 2:15pm for ultrasound... The doctor told me my blood test was good which is in the 420 range and he dose my follistim to 75 mgs stead of 50 mgs.. He found 3 follicles but 1 was the most good one he said... He told me that all I need is just one good follicle... I will need to go back to him tomorrow at 2:30pm for another ultrasound... So, far I am moving along good, but the heat wave in Cali is making me tired and weak.. :yawn: Other than that I am good.. :) I am not sure when I will do the IUI since my eggs are not fully mature yet... Maybe, this thursday or friday... I guess still monitoring until everything is all ready and good then that's when the IUI comes in... Well, I did saw my RE which he was in our network... But, he is not so good at returning calls.. Everytime, I call in the office there is always answer machine... I left them few messages but they didn't seem to call back... Also, I find him not bonding to the patients much... I want a doctor who is fully monitoring me and fill me in since I am the patient and is clueless.. He just recommend me to do ivf and nothing else... I didn't like the fact he didn't gave me other options first...

So, far this doctor is nice and is monitoring me closely... I tend to get stress at times.. Well, I haven't been happy for a very long time... When I was 23 yrs old.. I experience alopecia which the hair line on the top where you part your hair on women.. I was getting thin there... Now, it's have become more worst... :confused: I try to hide it as much as I can when I tie my hair up... It's to the point that no matter where I style it... There isn't enough hair to cover my thin part... Very sad and depressing... There are times I felt hopeless... I am thinking of going acupuncture next month and let them do needles on my head... Hopefully, by doing that it will stimulates my hair follicles and new baby hair will grow back out... Also, I think herbs will help me out too... Do you have any suggestion?? My thin hair is hedetidary which is sucks... My brother had hair line residing and i got thin hair on the top of my head... I am trying not to focus too much on my hair... As I really want to get pregnant and focus on other things rather than my hair.... I don't like being different from other people... Sometimes I will get anxiety attack due to my hair... I do hope when I get pregnant, my hair will come all back out... Maybe the baby will make my life not more stressed out and look at in a happier way...

Are you ready for the baby shower?? Yeah, I understand what you mean.. When DH's friend got a baby girl, we were invited but I try to find ways to get from going... Which I feel bad inside?? I just don't want to go and then come home with a heartaches... Hopefully, this is the month I have good news.. Wish me luck and I will do the same for you... I will keep you posted with my events... Hope you do the same too... Take it easy and you need lots of rest this time... Good luck with your pregnancy and best of all through your pregnancy trimesters...

Hi Plm,

How are you?? How is everything going since the last i heard from your post message?? How did the doctor's visit go?? Did the doctor told you why it was spotting?? I do hope you got all your questions answered?? I am doing okay but could be better.. Yesterday, was the big day for me to do IUI and for some reason I got a huge migraine headache which wouldn't go away... Everything went well other than my migraine was killing me.. Keeping my fingers crossed that this will be it.. This will be my last time in doing IUI and if things happened to be good news.. I will be blessed if not then that's it for me.. Just have to accept what life has to give to me.. I mean at least I try my very best in trying to be pregnant.. Also, my body is very weak taking too much meds and injectibles.. The shots where DH gave me follistim still have a mark of bruise on me.. :confused: Doctor gave me progrestrones vaginal cream to apply for 13 days... HOpe and has be praying a lot.. Pls, don't let me AF comes and I really want to be come a parent very soon...

I hope everything is going well for you.. I guess you might be busy with the doctor's visit and how did the baby shower go?? did you had a good time?? fill me in with all the updats.. i hope to hear from you soon.. take care and take it easy in the meantime...

Hi Plm,

Congrads that you are getting a healthy baby boy!! :) I am doing okay but it could been better.. From my last IUI plus follistim injectible, it did not worked for me. :( I am not sure what I will do now.. I guess eating right and pray hard.. The injectibles along with the clomids was screwing my body big times.. It's frustrating and heart broken.. I haven't heard from you for a long time.. I gotten worried and I'm glad to hear from you again.. Do you have a name for the baby yet?? I am not sure where to pick up from here.. That should i do IVF or what?? Any suggestions?? Best of luck to you.. Be happy and wish you have a healthy pregnancy...
