August IUI

Anyone planning on an August IUI? I saw the RE yesterday and we are planning to try with donor sperm during my August ovulation! Doc checked hormone levels so hopefully those come back normal! Share your experiences I need buddies to go crazy with! :)

We are 35 and 32y/o same sex couple and TTC for the first time. I had the monitoring done this cycle and we should have insemination done around middle of August. Very exciting!

Hi everyone!! I am brand new to these boards but not new to TTC! Going on almost 4 years now and in August we will be doing our first IUI! I am CD9 and going in Friday for another scan to check follicles.

I am so nervous, excited and scared all at once. And most of all staying hopeful and keeping a positive attitude. My husband and I have had such a long and emotional road dealing with infertility but thankfully we have held onto each other and been that support we both needed. We have a happy and healthy 7 yr old son and I want nothing more than to have more babies to love!

A little background info...
I am 30
DH is 29
We have one DS who is 7 yrs old
Laparoscopy and hystoscopy 07/2014
Found no endo (was shocked) and just scar tissue and fibroids
Followed by 3 rounds clomid
Tried naturally again for past 9 months

I'm not quite an August IUI but PRETTY CLOSE! Just had my first IUI on Saturday - 7/25/15 at CD14 after being on 50mg of Clomid from CD 3-7. Husband had 20 mill post wash and I had 2 mature follicles and 1 forming. Currently I am 5 DPIUI and feeling mostly localized pressure, frequent urination, VIVID dreams (I made the dogs freak out from my tossing), and semi-sensitive nips. Nothing is really SCREAMING out to me but it's still early. I also bought into the old wive's tale of eating the pineapple core from 1DPO to 5DPO.

Good luck on your upcoming IUIs!!! Is this your 1st? Is it going to be medicated? Monitored? :)

Hooray for August! We are back at it on a fresh new cycle! Started 100 mg Clomid last night (5 days) and have U/S & blood scheduled for 8/8. So excited to get started again!
Monitored and medicated cycle again.
We're also posting our journey under IUI/Mrs. & Mrs. IUI Process :)

mtnscrumble - I am on a similar time schedule as you! I had my first IUI on 7/23 (2 days before you). We did Femara + the Ovidrel 250 trigger. I had one big follicle, husband had about 43M swimmers post-wash. I'm currently 8 dpo and tested out the trigger this morning.

Our history: I am 28, DH is 28 - TTC for 1 year for our first. I have unexplained anovulation (ugh!), DH is healthy as can be. We did our first medicated cycle after discovering the anovulation in March 2015 by using Clomid + Endometrin. I didn't really respond to Clomid and it thinned out my lining. We then switched to Femara + Endometrin in April 2015, but BFN (suspected chemical). Then in May, I had an HSG - everything looked perfect. In June, we did just Femara (no Endometrin was necessary woo!), but doc thinks I developed an ovarian cyst that ended up rupturing over the Fourth of July weekend :| , so that one too was BFN. We have decided that if IUI doesn't work this month, we are moving on to IVF.

Best of luck to you! You'll have to keep me updated when you get ready to poas :D

Well today was the day! We had our first iui this morning at 9:30. I had an apt for a sono on Friday and I had 3 measureable follicles (2 right and 1 left) and I did the trigger shot Friday night.
In the midst of everything my husbands grandma took a turn for the worse and she passed away early this morning. We have been on one emotional roller coaster the past 3 days! But she was suffering so there's peace and comfort in knowing that she is no longer in pain. But still very hard and the timing is in gods hands and his plan.

My DH post wash was only 5.5 mil and the dr seemed happy with that but from stories I've read that seems low... Fingers crossed that it was enough.

I am pretty sure I ovulated this afternoon as I have been VERY very crampy and uncomfortable. Is this normal with iui? I usually have sore ovulation with cramps and bloating but this is much worse. I took some Tylenol since the dr said that would be ok. Fingers crossed now as we move into our TWW. I already feel anxious and just ready to know if this worked! I pray it works!
I am 30/ DH is 29
DS is 7 yrs old trying for #2 for 4 years
Laparoscopy 07/14 and found scar tissue & fibroids
DH all tests normal
Current--took Clomid days 5-9, followed by Ovidrel on day 12 and first IUI on day 14
1-5DPO Crampy, gassy, not much
6DPO-Strong lower cramping, hot flashes plus above
7DPO- Light brown/pink spotting, crampy, fullness in lower belly
8-9DPO- Light cramps, hot flashes, sore side breasts, lots of creamy CM, some yellow mucus CM, little nausea
10DPO- sore side boobs, swollen cervix, vag walls, creamy cm, gassy, fullness in belly

Hi Ladies! I am new here..

We ttc baby#2 naturally for over a year and after an early mc (blighted ovum) we decided to visit an RE. All of our test came back "normal". DS was conceived within 3 months back in 2011 and we haven't had the same luck with #2. DS turned 3 in June and we hope to get a BFP soon!

Had the first IUI in July, Took 100mg of clomid CD4 - CD8, had trigger shot - Ovidrel on CD14 and IUI on CD16, started progesterone on 2dpiui and it resulted on a BFN! (whoomp whoomp :( )
Stopped progesterone yesterday and now waiting on AF to arrive to start preparing for August IUI#2.
I've heard about about the pineapple core and Brazil nuts, so I will try that this time around. (fingers crossed)

Our insurance does not cover for infertility treatments so we are paying everything out of pocket! We pray/hope IUI#2 will be successful!

Good luck to all you ladies, lots and lots of prayers and baby dust!!!

I had my first IUI Fri July 31st trigger day before. Post wash 69 mill. 2 mature follies left side. I have no symptoms so far accept vivid nightmares and light left side cramping. Progesterone inserts are making me tired. I forgot the pineapple core 1st 3 days past iui but 4 and 5 I did eat. Praying for success!

Babydust to all of you ladies. IT WILL HAPPEN GIRLS! !!!

Had my first iui Monday . 2dpiui and looking for some distraction. It's going to be a long 2ww . I have PCOS . Was on 112.5 menopur for 8 days then triggered with ovidrel on Saturday. Currently on prometrium which is also making me exhausted. I had 2 follies on the left side and 8 follows on the right! Yikes ! However, I had the same number of follies last cycle , did TImes inter course resulting in no baby. Sooo , wish me luck! I go in for bloodwork next week to see if I even ovulated , nonovulation is my main problem . :roll:

Now I'm OFFICIALLY an August IUI. My July IUI was a failure. :x

Last month I took 50mg of Clomid on CD3-7 and then the IUI morning after a positive OPK.

This month, I am on 25mg of Clomid on CD3-7 (Friday) and having a sonohysterogram (water sonogram) on CD9 (next Thursday.) When the RE went through the film of my HSG he noticed what could either be an air bubble or a polyp. I secretly hope it is something that can be rectified. No more of this unexplained bizznizz.

My husband seems up to the task. Last month, his 21mill swimmers were all the rage around the dinner table. I was surprised he didn't text his mom about that hallmark moment.

Good luck everyone on this month's IUIs & other treatments!!

I've been having cramping on my right side ever since my iui 3 days ago. I'm taking progesterone supppositories and Google says it can cause cramping lol. Does anyone else have a cramping achy feeling who is also taking progesterone?

Hi! I'm an August IUI too! Looks like we'll be trying sometime the week after next! Very excited, but trying to keep things in perspective as we just bought our first house and are scheduled to move just prior to IUI!
