Nothing that can help me

The morning appointment with the RE was just as typical as every other ones.
The questions had been asked many many times-- why can't I produce quality eggs? Why the low fertilization rate? How much more is too much??
RE suggested to have a second opinion elsewhere, that would help, I'm sure....
What a long day with absolutely no hope...

4th IUI

We have decided to give IUI another shot this September. We still have 4 units storage left From our donor.
Also the royal jelly hasn't given me any problems so far...tomorrow I begin taking 2 a day and continue to observe any changes to my body.
I was reading someone's ttc blog, felt really bad for her as well as for myself.
because I'm also the same age and thought I would be a mother by now. Not so, not so....

New cycle?

AF came a few days ago, today I went to my Day 2 blood & Ultra sound. I was half hr late-- somehow I thought morning monitor hour was to 9 am. However someone finally took my blood and scanned me. Doc said I had a residual cyst on the right side, and I was to come back in a week to see how it is. My royal jelly came yesterday, on a happier note. I took one capsule today and will continue taking only one for a week before adding the second capsule. Would it make any change? Who knows...only time will tell.

Royal Jolly anyone?

This is our 5th failed IVF, and the first donor cycle, so I guess it really it's not that bad... Now we just need me to be a better egg producer...my Durham farm's royal jolly was shipped out yesterday. DH said he would also take it, it doesn't hurt anyways...

Worst cramp

Whoa, came the period following the 3rd day free of Progesterone. I stopped my progesterone about three nights ago after chasing a never ending shadow for a few days, I knew the eggs didn't stick.
I have been researching about royal jelly product, it's never recommended to me but it can't hurt at this point.

10dp3dt Hpt Negative....

I'm starting this blog, hoping someday I can look back and laugh about it. This is our official 5th IVF and I did just about everything to ensure a healthy implantation... didn't work. When the hpt didn't pick up anything by day 8 I knew it was another hopeless run, but I would rather know early than continue to stuff myself with progesterone for another meaningless 5 days. I knew the result, despite those other "miracle cases" people have reported to boost courage, a negative is a negative.
