2nd IUI and freaking out

Postby Jk369 » Tue Jan 07, 2014 5:09 pm

Hi, I'm new and looking for a little support. My DH and I have been TTC for 9 months. We tried naturally for 6 months but have been with an RE for the last three. Our first IUI was unsuccessful. I just had my second last Friday 1/3.

The next two weeks are going to be torture because last month's BFN is still so fresh in my mind. I'm losing hope, even though we've both tested perfectly healthy. The RE seems very positive but I don't think I can keep dropping this kind of money each month for all these meds, tests, and procedures.

Any words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated!

Hang in there jk, I was just reading some stats and 80% of couples will conceive after a year of trying but after 2 years 95% will become pregnant. Waiting that long will SUCK but the odds are GREAT! :D

We're also trying to conceive in our 30's (DH late 30's). I just started charting so I'm doing that before exploring any further options.
BFP on Friday Feb 3rd 2017 but ended in miscarriage at 7 1/2 weeks :(

Didn't chart this time, last time was TTC for over a year, BFP chart from daughter :D :

Thanx HF! My DH is wonderful but he doesn't entirely understand how I feel.
None if my friends can relate
Those stats make me smile. I hope it's true! And I hope they are the same for women in their 30s. (I'm 35 and DH is 37)
All the best to you and I hope it happens for us both soon!

Those were the "in your 30's stats" the in your 20's stats are even higher! 98% of couples actively TTC will be pregnant after 2 years in their 20's. :)

I had to go to the stats because I get really down and feel like it will not happen. I'm trying to focus this month on the positive and looking on the positive.

So glad for that!

I'm trying to be more positive like you, but I'm finding it so hard. Every "symptom" I go crazy. But in my heart I just don't believe it can happen because it's taking so long. If it ever does happen, I probably won't believe it until I see it on the sonogram!

I wish I could just be optimistic and calm!

When we were trying without all this intervention, I did find the clear blue fert. monitor very helpful. It's was much easier to get the timing right. Maybe you could try it. (I guess me suggesting that when I didn't succeed with it is a little silly, but I did like seeing that I was ovulating each month.)

I'm not supposed to test until 1/20 so I just have to try and chill out. Yoga , meditate, something!

I AM EXACTLY THE SAME!!!! I have tons of "symptoms" so I think I'm pregnant but then in my heart I don't believe it will happen because it's taken so long.

I'm curious...what is the difference between the clear blue fert monitor and the OPK test strips you can buy online? As I've been using the online ones (I think I mentioned that above...I don't remember).

ha ha I remember last cycle I said I was going to start meditating...it happened once. :o

I THINK the difference is that the monitor tells you when to test and if you're low/med/high fert. The single tests just you do whenever and it tells you if you've had your surge. Does that make sense?

I hope you're hanging in there!

Let's both commit to relaxing!

I'm going to meditate and do yoga this weekend!
