Raine - so sorry that af showed... do you think you might move on to do ivf or try iui again?

amom - can't wait to hear how your appt goes. you have to be your own advocate and do what you think is best for your body. remember they are just regular people who went to a whole lot of school nothing special hehehe

Im so excited that I dont know where to start!! The visit went great! My u/s was perfect(jump jump). I met with the Re and he already had a whole plan put together. He had everything already written out that I was going to ask about.I will take 25 mg of Clomid days 3-7. He said since Im slender he can only give me a small dose. He doesnt want it to affect my lining or make to many follies.On Wednesday I will have another u/s to see how many follies I have. He only wants me to have two and if I have more he may cancel the iui. After the u/s they will determine if I need another drug, follitism( did I spell that right?). He also had me order ovidril from a mail order pharmacy. They said that was the cheapest way to get it. Im not sure when I will take the ovidril. I guess it depends on Wednesday and when I detect my lh surge. This is all so exciting. I cant believe he already had everything put together before I even talked to him. Im taking that as a sign. I hope this is the cycle that gets us our miracle baby. The meds are pricey and my insurance doesnt cover them at all except one month of clomid. I would love any advice on any of theses drugs. What to expect etc.

Sorry so long. I just copied from my blog so i didnt have to write it all again.

Hi ladies...

A's mom! So excited for you! yes this our year (I hope with all my heart).

My Res office called today to see if the bleeding had increased, and when i explained it, had they moved up my appointment to tomorrow in case we decide to move on to meds for an IUI or IVF. We shall see what happens. I know he wants to do an HSG, but I am not sure when. I am just ready to get started again.

Thanks for all your support everyone. I am not sure what I would do without coming here everyday and knowing there are ladies who understand :) :hb:

I kind of want to do another IUI with meds but I am not sure he will agree. IVF takes longer and he may want me to lose a little weight first :oops: . he hasnt said this, but my co-worker had to lose 20 lbs before she could do IVF, so I am thinking I may have to too. I don't know... I'll do whatever it takes of course, but the sooner the better ya know? :D

Hi girls! Yes, this is the year for you!

Raine - I'm so sorry about the spotting/AF! Let us know how your appointment goes! You are SO fortunate to have great insurance for IUI and IVF. That really helps relieve some of the stress of this TTC journey.

Aidyns - I'm so excited your RE had a plan all set. Sounds like a great start! My sis was on clomid and follistim, too. What CD are you?

Peanut - How are you hanging in with your diet? Did you say you had one week left of the diet until your appointment? Thinking about you.

This may be of interest to some of you - I just watched my local news and they referenced a male infertility study that was recently done. They said research showed that men who took antioxidants were 4 times more likely to father children than men who did not take antioxidants. Apparently the study showed that it didn't matter what kind they took (vitamin e, zinc, magnesium, etc) they all work. They are now trying to figure out why they work.

Well, I'm off to bed. I need to get up early to take my sweet Bailey to a specialist for an u/s. My poor doggy may have liver disease. I'm really nervous about what they'll find, but I'm hoping she gets diagnosed with something treatable. Poor girl is so sad and sick right now. I just want to fix her! Wish me luck.

Well ladies, I have a game plan. I am also doing a medicated IUI! The doctor was very apologetic about this cycle and how wonky it was. He took lots of blood and the findings were: beta 0, progesterone is a little low, but not concerningly so. Also my anemia is really bad right now, so I am getting an iron shot on Friday. He said he is not sure why my period came so early, but that he does think I am suffering from luteal phase defect, which i have suspected for a long time. So we are going to do clomid and a higher dose of progesterone. I will also be doing a trigger for optimal timing of the IUI. The best part is he let me pay out of pocket for the last cycle at a discounted rate (did not charge me for the sperm washing) so that it didnt count against my 3 iuis that the insurance will cover. I was happy about that! this cycle will be more expensive of course with the monitoring and meds.

So my plan is Clomid CD3-7 (50mg), and Progesterone is in pill form, but if he thinks its not high enough he will supplement with cream or suppositories. Trigger will be done myself(eek!) a home when they tell me to. It is Pregnyl.

So this is my last chance before we pull out the IVF card. he would like to see me lose about 15 lbs before IVF as I suspected. he says its the effectiveness of the drugs that is compromised during IVF that is the issue.Thats ok... But lets hope this works and we wont have to go there.

I am nervous about the meds!! A's mom- looks like we are entering uncharted territory together this month!! I am so excited!

I start the clomid tomorrow!

Hey girls- Wow this page has filled up with some BFP's.

Amom- So excited you get to try clomid. That stuff made me crazy..LOL I really think this will work for ya. Yay for your Dr. having everything all layed out for ya. Sounds like he is on top of his game.

Rain- Yay for having a game plan also. clomid worked for me, but I was not being monitored so it ended in early m/c. I am really rooting for ya. happy you get to take Progesterone in pill form, i really hate the supp.

AFM- sorry I have been gone, I have been hanging out in the IVF forum. I am doing my 1st IVF this month. I just finished my last BCP on monday and should start stimming on friday. I am hoping to have ER on the 1st of Feb. I will be watching you girls. Hopefully this will be our Month...Good Luck Ladies. :mrgreen: KMP!!!

Cali- I hope you get good news about Bailey. Kup. Today I am cd 3 according to the Re. Its actually day 4 if you ask me. They dont count the first day that you start if its after 4pm :roll:

Raine-Yes we are :jump: Im so excited that we can go through this together. My trigger will be done in office. Lisab told me the needle is tiny and doesnt hurt. Hope shes right. I dont like shots in the belly. Are you doing a single iui or a double? Im doing a double. I am paying for everything out of pocket this month. Its going to be an outrageous bill, but hey at least tax time is coming!! Oh and I start my Clomid tonight.

Brooke- Hey girl. I wondered where you went off too. So exciting about ivf!! Kup

Amom and Raine - I am so excited for you guys. Hope this will your month! :fingersx:

Cali - How are you feeling? Hope Bailey will be ok. Have you felt the baby move yet? I am 12 weeks. The books say it is too early, but there are times when I am almost positive I feel the baby. This is my second time around so maybe I recognize the feelings sooner.

Amom--yeah for this month! Glad all is going in a great direction. Exciting!!

Raine-saw that AF arrived but also that you are moving on to an IUI this month. This is great! You are a go get em' type. I like that! :)

Cali--saw about your pup on FB. Ugh. My dog is my baby so I can only guess how stressful. Keep us posted on the outcome.
Glad you are feeling well though.


AFM: um...nothing! Domestic breastfeeding diva here! :)
Found a nanny. Lots of experience and sweet. Expensive. But what do you do? I just cannot put my infant in daycare. 1 person to 5-6 infants? Yuk. I would rather be broke. So we are doing the nanny thing until she is a yr and then find other care.
