Thanks, ladies!!

Oh my gosh...this is awesome! Thank you so much to everyone who had suggestions for me. I really want to see what else we can do before we try this again. I had thought about a couple of the things mentioned, but it was good to know that I was on the right track.

To answer a few questions,

1. Yes, I have had an HSG. It was in January 2008 and it appeared to be normal.

2. I didn't do Lovenox. I have been taking a baby aspirin daily (and the prenatal vitamins), but that's it. I'll ask about it.

3. I'm not sure if the beta came back at 16 due to the hcg booster. I am going to ask, but I wouldn't think so since it was diluted and over a week before my test. Who knows.

4. I'm asking about blood clotting disorders...thanks!

5. A laparoscopy is on my list to ask about. Dr. J did offer that as an option before we did this IVF cycle, but since my insurance covered the IVF he suggested that first.

6. YES! I definitely want to know more about this missing inner cell mass. I have no clue how that happens and what that means so it is on my list.

7. I have read about PGD and it's on my list of questions, too.

Our meeting is next week so we'll see what Dr. J says. Thanks again, ladies!!

Hey! Yeah we do go to the same Dr.! I like him a lot! I'll pray that you guys can hopefully get some answers and feel led in a certain direction for what's next. Hang in there!

Amber - My friend was just diganosed with the Blood Clotting Disorder. It is very rare. She had 2 miscarriages in 4 months. The Drs. couldn't figure out what was wrong and then they did lots and lots of test and this was the last test, because it is so rare. She takes a baby Aspirin everyday and when she gets pregnant she has to start on Lovenox shots rifht away everyday, until the end and then they will switch her to another blood thinner. The disorder cuts blood flow off to the baby, if you do get pregnant causing the miscarriage, without the blood thinners. Hope this helps! Best wishes!!
