Bummer about the negative HPTs. I hope and pray that you just have a late implanter and that you have a positive blood test tomorrow! Please keep me posted!

I'm really sorry! :( I know how hard it is to get that negative result...it sucks! I really hope that the next IUI is your lucky one. Do you think you'll try Femara next time? That's what did it for me. I had 2 failed (and one canceled) cycles on Clomid and my first IUI on Femora worked. I was also using a new donor too though. Did you ask about the low sample? If it really was only 3 million motile then your clinic should be able to fill out some paperwork to send to your sperm bank for a refund or free vial. Are you planning to do another IUI right away or taking a break? Again, I'm so sorry about the BFN :(. Keep me posted on your future plans.

We are moving forward with another iui next month, still haven't decided whether to switch donors. I had his numbers all wrong. 105 mil with 30% motility. They said they want 35%, but that they were okay with that being that I was thawed donor sperm. I don't remember his numbers from the first time, but I know they were WAY better. What do you think? I asked what my protocol would be this time around and still haven't gotten a response. I'll definitely let you know!

Sorry again for the delay. Yay for trying again this month! I think your donor numbers are really good actually. As long as his rate of progression is a 2+ or higher I think it's fine to stick with him for another try or two...especially if you really like him/his profile. As for your protocol, I would definitely switch to Femara this time and give that a try for at least 2 cycles(hopefully only one is needed though!). Keep me posted! Best wishes!!!

Hey molinari, how are things going? Did you end up doing another IUI? I'd love to hear an update when you have a chance. As for me, we'll probably be trying in January.

I'm 8DPIUI today, been avoiding anything baby like the plague. I'm just tired of getting my hopes up! So I haven't been testing out the trigger this time. I think I may begin testing tomorrow morning to see if there is any trigger left in my system. I will let you know how everything goes. GL to you in January!

I understand wanting to try to put TTC and baby thoughts out of your mind. I also did that when I was in the 2ww. I didn't test until 14dpiui so I would have a clear result either way. Best of luck! Please keep me posted on the results of this cycle! I'm really hoping that you are pleasantly surprised with a +HPT soon! :D

Oh and BTW, I received a call from my sperm bank this morning and apparently they somehow lost one of our vials. They are offering a refund of what I paid and are bumping me to the front of the wait list in case more vials ever become available(get sold back from someone else). Still, I'm irritated.

I would be mad too! What a huge mistake they made! Thankfully, you have a supply of his vials already! Hopefully it won't make any difference because you'll get pregnant right away! :)

Yeah, there's really nothing that I can do about it so we'll just have to take the refund. They better not lose anymore though! Have you testes yet?

I'm 15DPIUI today and still bfn... so I'm out. We're taking a month off from all of the madness. When did you say you guys were going to start up again?

I'm really sorry about your BFN! :( Are you on a break until January now? Have you talked to your doctor about the next step(new game plan)? Maybe switching to Femara or injectables would work better or maybe using ovulation tests instead of triggering would help your timing line up better or something. And of course maybe thinking about switching donors. I'm just throwing things out there. I'm sure that you've thought of it all though. I really really hope that you only have to do one more IUI to get the baby that you want so bad!!

As for us, we're pretty sure that we're going to try in about a month. I'm about half way through my current cycle so I'm think my IUI will be near the very end of January or beginning of February. Maybe we'll be trying around the same time. Please keep me posted! Best wishes on your next cycle! I'm hoping that 2016 is a lucky year for both of us! :D

Hi Maria! I'm really sorry that I never got back to you. I kind of just jumped ship after that last BFN. I actually told DH that I didn't want to try anymore. It's difficult because it hurts so much to try and fail, but it also hurts so much to not try at all. After a couple months off, I'm ready to pick back up again. I'm going to call my RE Monday and schedule an appointment to see where we'll go from here.

Anyway, I hope this finds you well and you are well on your way to your BFP!

Hello! I just now saw that you responded in February. I definitely understand the need to throw in the towel for a while. I went through the same thing while TTC our DD...attempted 3 DIUIs within a 5-6 month period and then gave up for over 3 years after I failed to ovulate for our planned 3rd DIUI attempt. So I understand the disappointment and the need for a break. Have you tried another IUI yet? Please let me know how things are going. I really hope that you get your much desired baby very soon!

As for me, we still haven't done an IUI. There are a lot of things that just keep holding us back. We may end up just being one and done. However, I still have the strong desire to try for another often so we'll see. Lately I've been pondering giving it a try in May/June. We just paid for another 2 years of storage on our vials so they are still safe while we decide what to do. I'll keep you posted if we decide to go for it.

Best wishes on your 2016 TTC journey! (((Hugs)))
