I found this medication hit me hard this cycle.
I had some heart burn, sleeplessness at night, but also very tired during the day.
My boobs were killing me all week, but feel normal now. How are you feeling? Any symptom spotting?

Got my 2nd beta back and it has increased to 98.1 from 29. They would like to check it again but give it a few days to really see whats going on. So my next testing will be on Monday morning. I hate all this waiting.

I'm out for this month ladies. My period started today :-(

Thought maybe this would be a good month for us. Now I know injectables give me a LOT of false hope. I had vivid dreams, irritability, and sensitive bbs. Oh well :-/

We are going to take April off. I am not in the right state of mind to start all over right now; and it will be nice to give our checkbook a break (no insurance help on anything)

Good luck to those of you still waiting. I'll rejoin to IUI boards once my month off is over.

Hi. This is my first time here. We did our first IUI March 18th, triggered on the 17th, so today is 9dpiui. I don't have fertility issues. My husband had a vasectomy, so we decided to try iui and hopefully this works!

Yes, I was on Femara, and then did a shot of ovidrel. I'm 10dpiui today, and still feel as if my period will start, but hopefully not.

Got my 3rd beta back and it's 627. They want me in for a u/s on Thursday to rule out ectopic. Sounds scary!

Juliet - Stay positive, your beta is great, I hope it turns out healthy and perfect!

@ Jean @ Myshelsong - sorry to hear the bad news :(

AFM, I'm taking the month off, AF finally came at what would've been 4 weeks/5 days, not bad at all - in fact, I think it will be over today.
Trying IUI #2 in May. Good luck to all you ladies trying in April, I hope it turns positive and healthy for you!!

Heather/Paul
43/45
Been together 18 yrs.
We have a boy, 16, and a girl, 15.
TTC for 3 months

We have kicked around the idea of having another child for the last 6ish years, probably shouldn't have kicked it around so long...LOL! We just started on our journey in January. So far we've done Letrozole, 12.5 mg, cd 3-7 in February (realized at the u/s that there were uterine polyps so those were removed late Feb.) and again cd 3-7 in March followed by Ovidrel shot cd 11, 3/29, and had our first iui today, 3/31. DH sperm count, motility, and all markers are off the charts good, my AMH levels are that of someone 15 years younger and I had 5 follicles on cd 11; 20, 20, 18, 18, 16 mm each. The only med I'm taking is a prenatal vitamin and DH is taking a multivitamin and a large prescription dose of Vitamin D due to a deficiency.

Looking for anyone in a similar situation that has successfully conceived or can give us some hope/direction. We really have no idea what to expect or know anyone at all that's started down this road past 40. We aren't telling anyone at this time because...A. most everyone we know will think we're crazy and/or have negative things to say; B. we want no outside pressure, and C. if it doesn't work out for us, we'd like to not have to explain. We have been blessed with 2 beautiful children already and we would be ecstatic for more but definitely appreciate what we already have been given!

Hi all! Yesterday was my second round of IUI. I didn't know if I'm still part of March or I should have posted in the April IUI thread. Our first IUI was in October and it was a BFN. We took a break for a few months and tried again in January but I didn't ovulate with the regular meds so we had to wait for another cycle. We've been TTC for over a year and a half (all medicated cycles with either clomid or femera) and taking a break did not help. So finally this cycle with 100mg of Clomid and Ovidrel trigger I had 4 follicles. So we did the IUI yesterday morning and keeping my fingers crossed this would be the one. I had alot of cramping the night before our IUI so I know it was ovulation pains. So hopefully ovulating 12 hrs before the procedure helps. Following the insemination while I was still sitting on the exam table I had really bad cramping to where I was starting to feel light headed. The nurse explained that if the catheter hits the top of the uterus is usually causes quite a bit of cramping. Has anyone experienced this?
Me: 32 - unexplained infertility
DH: 41 - perfect
TTC:Since July 2013 (All medicated cycles except 1) ALL BFN
Surgery:July 2014-removal of cyst on uterus with d&c
Meds: clomid, femara, ovidrel
IUI #1-Oct 2014-femara 7.5mg/ovidrel.2 follicles.BFN
IUI #2-Mar 2015-clomid 100mg/ovidrel. 4 follicles.BFN

@myshelsong Sorry this wasn't your month either....wishing you a great next cycle

@juliet81 Thinking of you and hoping you get great news on Thursday!

@lilymg How are you feeling? Do you have a beta scheduled?

Welcome mom2bat43 looks like you responded well with 4 good size follies!

Welcome Bera1 I had a lot of cramping after my February IUI but not so much after this last one. Luckily I did acupuncture right after and it helped relieve some of the cramping. I didn't have the time for acupuncture this time so I am glad it wasn't as bad.

AFM I am kind of freaking out....on Sunday I went to do laundry in our basement and noticed what I thought was my sons sock stuck on the side. I grabbed it and it was a BAT!!!!! And it bit me. Since this happened I had to get the rabies vaccine and following up with 3 more shots. I did let them know that I had an IUI on the 24th. I have to get my progesterone levels drawn tomorrow so I will talk to my RE about it. I really hope if it did work this month the vaccine won't have any affect. Not that the 2ww isn't already stressful.

Sending baby dust to all!!!
