September IUIs

Postby valerie0187 » Wed Sep 10, 2014 8:33 pm

I tried my first IUI in August and a BFN so now I will be trying my second IUI this month. I won't go for an IUI until another two weeks but I thought I would start this thread for anybody who plans on doing an IUI this month. Right now I am on my TWW for my TWW... :rofl: Who wants to wait with me?

Hey Valerie, sorry to hear about your BFN. I still have 5 days left of my TWW but am not feeling really confident. If it is a BFN for me, I will also start iui #2 this month. I feel like I would be more confident with round 2 as I now know how my body reacts to the ends and what I need as far as supplements.

I am sorry you feel like it will end up being BFN. But you are still in it. But I do know what you mean. Now that I am in my second round I feel like I know more about my body and what to expect. I also decided to start temping because I realized symptom spotting doesn't work but instead just makes you go crazy. LOL.

Hey Charlie! Welcome! You are not the only one that goes crazy during the TWW. I also did my first IUI unmedicated and my second one will also be unmedicated. So when are you doing to do your first HPT? You never know you, I have seen several people on here that has gotten a BFP on their first IUI! Baby dust to all!

Hi guys! Best of luck to all of you this month! I'm hoping to have my first IUI this month. Had cd12 ultrasound today and had no mature follicles. :( go back Tuesday and hopefully there will be some nice ones, and we will be able to proceed. I did take Clomid cd5-9. I have mild pcos, and do not have regular cycles or appear to ovulate on my own. Would love to join in as an IUI newbie with you all. I bet the tww after IUI would be excruciating! I won't be able to distract myself enough!

Linylee - You used CC?! That's cool! My donor that I am using is 13464. Which one did you use?

JLG80 - Welcome! We would be happy for you to join the group with us! I am sorry you didn't have mature follicles but hopefully everything will work out and you will be able to do your IUI this month! Yeah, the TWW after the IUI can get a little nuts especially when you start symptom spotting.

Hey Ladies! Thought I'd jump on in here! I planned on stalking the boards earlier, but with school, work, and wedding plans I'm going insane! anyway, I'm sad I didn't know you guys when I had my first IUI in December! It failed, But Lynlee, it looks like your donor worked well!
Ironically, since December I have met the man I want to spend my forever with, and we're trying this month! Because of the endo and failed IUI the doc was okay with doing an IUI right off the bat. We go in on Friday for the follie scan and hcg injection, then Saturday and Sunday for IUI's, plus bding before hand. I'm really hopeful this month! Especially since the clomid is giving me way worse side effects this time. My belly is definitely bloated and I'm definitely a bit out of sorts. Anybody else have different side effects from clomid when they used it at different times?

JL- I'm hoping for you this month!! Are you going to start testing early or try and hold out? My last IUI i tested the shot out...then peed on a bazillion sticks because I didn't like my answer...and I admit it, I was obsessed! The dollar store ones really do work! Is your doc going to change any of your meds, or wait it out for the follies to grow?

Valerie, when is your next IUI scheduled?

Charlie, I'm also interested, when will you start testing? I like to see pee sticks..preferably the ones with a BFN :)
Me- 23severe endo. Docs think it's in bowel & bladder & warned I could end up with colostomy and or urostomy if a full hyst is not done asap.
10/2012 Lap Endo dx

9/20/2014 IUI #2 100mg clomid, hcg trigger shot, progesterone supps- Doc cancelled IUI and decided to try timed intercourse

Linylee - The donor I used is young too and he has more than 5 reported pregnancies so I am really confident with this donor! I have a feeling I will see a BFP really soon. Congrats again on your BFP! Can't wait to see baby bump pictures!

Loving - That is so awesome you met the man on of your dreams. I hope the IUI works for you too this month! I do IUI unmedicated so I don't know the effects of clomid. My next scheduled IUI should be around September 22nd.

Hi loving,
Dr hasn't said anything about changing up meds at this point. Plan is to scan every few days to see if any mature. The tech that did my u/s did say a lot of women don't mature as early as cd 12, so I suppose if none are mature on tues, I might go back again end of week? I don't know what happens if none mature by end of week. Maybe that suggests I do need a diff med for next cycle? I will try to hold out testing, but we'll see what really happens when I'm in the tww, lol.

Sounds like you have been pretty busy! Best wishes to you with your IUI, and keep us posted how it goes! Good luck! The only side effects I'm really noticing from the Clomid are some hot flashes, and some sore bb's. Maybe a day of irritability, too.

Hi to all, hope it was a busy weekend - I know mine went entirely too fast! 15dpiui today BFN and no AF :( Such a confusing, heart wrenching process. I have a blood draw on Tuesday, I'm hoping I got a bad batch of test strip :) we'll see. Hoping to see lots of BFP this month, it's always nice to see those success stories. Talk with you ladies later.

Tiff: Hoping you get a BFP on tuesday !!! fingers crossed!!!

Valerie0187: jeah ... love to hear succes stories about BFP on the 1th IUI, but i'm being realistic and putting not too much hope on the first round...

Loving ladie : I promised myself not to test with pee sticks anymore .. :) I have a obliged blood test 14DPIUI so for me thats the final answer on thursday.. But if they tell me its positive, i"ll might do a pee stick to have that ONE positive pee stick in my hands after a year and i'll post it here hahaha... ;)

Lots of babydust for you guys! i'll keep you guys posted!
