Looking for buddies.......

Postby want2bamommy24 » Wed Jun 29, 2011 4:16 pm

Hey ladies! Just tossing the idea around of starting a little buddy group for anyone who has been TTC #1 for multiple years. I have another buddy group, but I am one of the only ladies in it still TTC #1 and having done so for a long time. Just wondering if there was anyone else out there looking for some buddies in the same boat?

I also have been trying for a long time (since Oct. 2007). I just finished with my 8th round of clomid. We started with 25mg in august of last year and have progressively gotten up to 200mg at the beginning of june- this is the 2nd month of being on 200mg, and i'm FINALLY O'ing!

So sorry to hear about your infertility journey, but would love to cheer you on during this difficult time! We just found out today that we are starting IUI with Follistim/Ovidrel TOMORROW! We are working with an RE who is trying to be a little more aggressive, so we are skipping trying Clomid and going straight to IUI. I am hopeful, but he doesn't give us great chances with it because we suspect I have endometriosis. I am just happy to finally be getting some treatment after all this time!

OH! I hope the IUI is successful!
I have been given the option of IUI now, or wait for 3 months and try with just Clomid for the first three months, since I've just started to ovulate. We have chosen to go that route and wait for a few months to try...hopefully it works.
I look forward to being ur cheerleader :D

I'll cheer you on too. I'm about to start my 3rd round of clomid (one was last year though) and the doc is upping my dose to 100mg...I'm not looking forward to it.

I just found out that if I switch insurances, IUI will be covered!!! but I have to wait until the end of the year to switch. :( I'm glad to hear that IUI uses different drugs, so I'll continue with the Clomid thru the end of this year and if nothing happens, I'll hopefully be able to proceed directly to IUI.

Good luck :luck:

Thanks! They can do Clomid IUIs, too, but injectibles are more effective. Good luck to you, too!!:)

Had my IUI yesterday, but feel that I am just now ovulating despite the trigger shot on Sunday.:( Think our IUI timing was way off.:( Trying not to be pessimistic, but very frustrated that we may have wasted another cycle.

Anything new with you?
