PCOS - Last IUI

Postby babygirlo3 » Tue Apr 02, 2013 1:54 pm

I have had PCOS since I was 15. I am 32. We have been ttc for 17 months. I know it doesnt sound like that long, but we knew I would probably have trouble from the beginning, so thankful after 4 months with no luck and no o, my OB let us get straight to the fertility fun. I began Clomid, Estrodal and metformin last March. By May still no baby and no o. So we took a break from the fertility pills and the bc hoping it would happen on its own. Instead I ended up with a 45 day cycle and 21 days of AF leading to a D/C. Then it was back to bc for a few months to recover and the waiting for AF to go away (another 27 days!!!!). We decide 1 year - that is our time limit to get pg or face my inevitable partial hysterectomy. So back to Clomid, Estrodal and metformin. And surprise it started to work. 3 months of successful o but still no baby. so Jan we had an IUI. Everything looked perfect on paper. My ob said this could very well be it... The LONGEST 14 days of my life, then 15 days and 16 days. We thought this is it! We will finally have our 4th child. (I have 2 lovely step sons and a 8 yr old son who is my miracle baby). 17 days and AF showed up. Heartbroken I picked up the pieces, prayed nonstop and tried to move on. After all I got a miracle 8 yrs ago. Most people have never been blessed with 1 true miracle and I am asking for 2... I feel selfish but I cant help it. I love my boys, but there is a hole in our family and I cant get past it as much as I pray and shower my boys with my love. I have an amazing husband who may not understand my need, but that loves me enough to do what it takes to make me feel like my life is complete. He tries to understand I dont want to be asking myself what if after they take "my parts". So here we are again... One last try before my year is up. I am on day 6 of my cycle, day 3 of Clomid and Estrodal. I take metformin everyday so of course I am on that as well. We are preparing for our 2nd and last IUI. This is it. If we do not get the miracle we are asking for we will begin the process of making my dream happen another way - adoption. Need lots of prayers and maybe a little babydust to go with them.

Well tomorrow is 13dpiui. I have a 9:30 appt for bw. I havetn tested so I dont know what to expect. I feel like I could be, but I dont want to get my hopes up. Havent had a lot of symptoms but I didnt with DS either. My DH is flip flopping. One day he thinks I am the next he doesnt. AF is not due until Monday at the earliest. I have 32-34 day cycles. I guess the only way to tell is to test, but I hate that it is a Friday and I will have to wait until Monday to find out. I may break down on Saturday and test at home if the wait proves to be too much. That will be 14dpiui. Hoping and praying this is it. If it isnt I will be heartrboken. We are done after this round and plan to look into adoption. I will be having a partial hysterectomy in June or July. This is in the Lord's hands. If I am meant to have another I will. If not He has provided my 2 DSS to give me the family I am unable to have. Please send up lots of prayers for me and my family. May God's will be done.
