Thank you for the kind words.
She is taking it tough. She has apologized to me probably two dozen times today as if it was her fault for the miscarriage or for catching covid. Ofcourse there was nothing she could do differently and she did the best she could. Shes still pretty sick but her o2 sats are better then last night where it was dropping down to 92 for a while ( yes i have a pusle ox at home).
Just gonna take care of her until she is no longer sick and then figure out next steps. Really sucks... Ordering up some more HMG for the time being as i dont imagine this is gonna be a quick process moving forward. going to stay on 75iu HMG a week until a time comes when I definitely want to be fully fertile again and then ill increase the dose.
Stay healthy everyone. Those of you who have kids are truly blessed.
I hope your wife continues to recover and feels better soon. It's hard to know how to reassure a woman in such a situation. It's not the same for us; we will never know what it's like to have a child growing within our own body, sharing every moment and breath with us. So you can only do your best to help her heal, physically and mentally.
Moving forward in the future, do you think you would stick with HMG or try rFSH with HCG? HMG is a great drug, but for simplicity's sake, all we should really need is FSH to stimulate the Sertoli cells, and HCG as a longer-acting analog for LH to stimulate the Leydig cells. Either will work, so I suppose it just depends on which is most readily available, and cost-effective. Empower Pharmacy in Texas used to have the best price in the USA on FSH, but since the recent FDA ruling banning compounding pharmacies from selling the biologics, they haven't been able to offer it anymore.
Anyway, I guess this is not the time to discuss protocol changes right now. Right now you have to be there for your wife and help her heal and feel better about the whole thing. And hopefully soon, she will be ready to try again.
My little daughter, who I only got by using Test + HMG + HCG, just turned one year old. She had her one year pediatrician appointment today, and she is off the charts, well over the 99th percentile in both height and weight. She's wearing clothes for a 24-month-old, big and happy and healthy, and toddling around the house getting into trouble. She loves Sesame Street, Elmo, and Blue's Clues, and eats big people food like pasta, eggs, ground beef, fruits and vegetables.
Every day I thank God for her, because she is a blessing, and I pray that you and your wife have the same joy in your lives soon.
