Hey Maria! Just checking in to see how you're doing! I'm a few days from AF. Just patiently waiting!

Hey, I'm still waiting on AF too. I expected my cycle to stall this time though because I think that it took my body a week to actually ovulate. This happens often when I'm ovulating on my left side. It's just my bum side. It's like my body has to gear up to ovulate several times when ovulating from my left side naturally. This is why I definitely wanted to wait until I could do a fully medicated cycle. I have felt like AF is here for 3-4 days but she still hasn't shown. To be honest though, I'm now not 100% that we'll try next cycle. For a few different reasons my DH and I have talked about waiting until after the new year to start trying again. It's complicated. We'll see though. Once my AF shows we'll talk again and make a decision. How about you? When do you expect AF to show?

Hey Maria! AF was supposed to be here today, but for some reason I'm delayed. I don't even have any pre AF symptoms! Wonder what that's all about! I am trying to just be easy going because sometimes my cycle is longer when I'm stressed out. So of course I've been stressed. It's a vicious cycle! I think I'll be doing some acupuncture this cycle, so I'm searching for a local acupuncturist. Drinking my RRLT and taking my supplements. All that's left is the witch to show! DH and I have talked about our plans as well and have decided that we are going to try October, November, and then skip December and January, then pick back up in February. I'm really hoping of course that October will be successful and then the rest is moot! :)

Sending big hugs and baby dust! xoxoxo

Hey Maria~ How are you? Been thinking of you lately! Let me know how this cycle is going! AF got here 5 days late (kill me now!) and I've started my Clomid 100mg yesterday. I go for my first U/S on Sunday. RE wants to try the Clomid with a higher dose rather than Femara. Hope this does the trick!

Hello, My AF actually showed today finally. I'm really glad that I didn't waste one of our vials(and money) on last cycle because it was definitely screwed up. I don't even know if I actually ovulated. I'm still not sure if I'll start my Femara on Saturday or not. We're going to talk about it tomorrow. There are a few different reasons that we're thinking about waiting until after the new year. I'll let you know. How about you? How are things going? Is the Clomid treating you okay this cycle? Let me know how your ultrasounds goes on Sunday! I really hope that you get some good follicles and have a successful IUI this cycle!

Hey Maria! Clomid treated me better this cycle than last that's for sure! And it was a double dose! I will definitely let you know how the ultrasound goes!

I'm glad that you didn't waste your vial too! They are like gold! Good call! Whatever you decide for the coming cycles, I wish you all the luck in the world! Keep me posted! :)

Well we decided to wait out this cycle and probably the next also. I'm guessing that my next IUI will be in January. I really had hoped to be pregnant by now but waiting a couple more months just feels right to us for various reasons. As of now, we're planning/hoping for an October 2016 baby. I hope that waiting won't affect our chances too much since I'm now 36 but waiting until after the holidays will just work best for us.

How did your ultrasound go yesterday? Please keep me updated! Even though I'm not TTC this cycle I'm still routing for you to have success! Best wishes!

Thanks Maria! My ultrasound went well and we triggered tonight. I go in on Wednesday for my IUI. Really excited!

I know that the decision to wait had to be one that was done with a heavy heart. Only you know when is best to try! Maybe take these next few months to just relax and focus on the holidays! The months will pass by before you know it. Plus, an October baby would be awesome! Fall babies are the best! (I may be biased, I'm a fall baby) :)

Sending you big hugs!

Hi Molinari! Sorry for the delay. How is everything going? Did you have your IUI? Please update me when you have a chance! And yes, I do like the idea of a fall baby :). I think the holidays will keep me busy plus our daughter is now doing gymnastics two days a week and that has been really fun for her and exciting for us to watch. I haven't been too bummed about having to wait a little longer to TTC thankfully.

Hey Maria! I had my IUI on the 28th and I'm currently 11DPIUI. I tested out my trigger and today was my first negative. Hopefully I will see a positive soon even though I also feel like AF is coming. It's been really hard not to symptom spot, but I've been doing pretty good this cycle!

I'm really glad to hear that you're not bummed taking this time off. Sometimes it's nice to not spend all of your time thinking about fertility related things. It's definitely freeing! I wish you the best with everything!

Please say a little prayer for me! I'm really hoping this is our cycle! Talk to you soon! xoxoxo

I'm hoping and praying that AF stays away and that you get your BFP in the next few days! Just out of curiosity, how many mature follicles did you have and how were your donor's numbers?

I had 3 that were looking good and one that was leading the way. My RE said that I would probably release all 3 as mature. Donor numbers weren't as good as last time. There were 10 mil and 30% motility. Last time his numbers were 100 mil and I can't remember the motility, but it was much better than 30%. It was the same donor, not sure what the reason for the difference was! Oh well, you only need one right? Thanks for the prayers! xoxoxo

Three follicles is really good! And 10 million motile is good(that's what most banks guarantee)! Most RE's just want to see 5 million or more for IUI. If it was only 10 million total though, with only 3 million motile(30%) then you should contact your sperm bank for a possible refund if you don't get your BFP. I would definitely check and make sure which it was. You might be owed a free vial from the sperm bank if you got a bad vial this time. Anyways, I hope that you don't even have to worry about and you get you your BFP! Please keep me posted! Best wishes for a sticky baby this cycle!

Thank you for the tip Maria! I'll definitely be looking into that! So far I've been negative and I'm 13 DPIUI so I'm not feeling too hopeful. I go in tomorrow for blood work so I need all of your positive thoughts and prayers!
