Molinari- That's exciting! I haven't tried clomid. My RE has always put me on Femara/Letrozole. I did two cycles of Femara/Ovidrel/IUI and BFN. This cycle we did a combo with Femara/Follistim/Ovidrel/IUI and we're hoping it does the magic trick! I am 3dpiui/dpo today. Sending hugs and baby dust! :)

Brit- FX on your follie scan! Hoping for big, mature ones for you :) I always get amped up to have my scan and see what's going on in there. Lol What was your protocol? The past two cycles I've had one follie, this time we had three :D Which we were so thrilled with because we have MFI as well. Keep us updated! Hugs and baby dust your way.

Skip- I had my IUI Saturday so we are close! Ah! :) How was the Gonal? I did Follistim this cycle and found it burned but not too bad. It pushed my O date up as well. I hope your BW shows great P4 and your beta is t-minus 13 days away! Woo hoo!

@futurebabybee I have been on Menopur 75 IU day 3-10. My follicle scan showed a 20 mm & 15 mm on the right side. The ones on the left were still only 10 & 12 mm so I don't think they'll catch up in time. I was hoping for a few big ones but it only takes one right? My E2 was 297 so we will be doing the trigger shot tonight & IUI on thurs morning at 10:00 am. 3 follicles is great! What sizes were they? Fingers crossed for you!!!!!

Brit- Those are good sizes, it definitely only takes one! The trigger will help the 15 mature before your IUI. Sending prayers and baby dust for Thursday morning! In the past I've only had 1 mature follicle so we were really happy. I have a bit of a lining issue though. At my CD 10 scan I had a 19.5, two 17's and a 14. Lining was 6.8 mm. We triggered the next day per my RE. I start progesterone suppositories tonight as I have a history of low progesterone. Such fun they are lol however totally worth it to get a BFP!

Thanks! Awesome follies!!! & looks like yall had a good sperm count too, that's awesome! My husband has been taking some vitamins the urologist prescribed for the last 4 months so I'm hoping for great numbers thursday! I'll be starting the progesterone suppositories the day after the iui, first time I'll ever be using them so we will see how that goes but your right anything to get that wonderful BFP!!!! My lining was 10 mm so I was happy about that. Praying the 3rd times the charm for both of us!!!!

Thank you! :) We had our highest post wash count but motility and morph were pretty low. We are remaining optimistic though. Praying a lot! I hope you have great numbers as well. You have great lining!! Yes hopefully 3rd time is a charm for us both :D

@future- I've never used Clomid either! This is our second IUI, the first one we used Femara as well. My RE said that Clomid may be a heavier hitter so we are doing that and adding in this trigger shot (which I've never done either). I'm so excited AF came (I'll never say that again!) And we can start the process again! RE had blood work done today to check my HCG and Progesterone levels and then will call in my Clomid. Still haven't been told the days I'll be taking it or the dosage. I'm really hoping not to have too many unpleasant side effects! I've heard some stories!
FX for all of you ladies!

@molinari- Yes my RE had mentioned if we wanted to switch to clomid for more follicles that'd be an option but I already have a lining issue and I've heard horror stories so I wanted to stick with Femara. I hope it doesn't have any awful s/e on you and you get a great response! I know what you mean about getting excited to start AF. We had to take a break cycle before this IUI and I felt the same way. I'm excited for you to get underway and hope this is the one!

@future - I hope I don't have any lining issues! This will be the first time we have a monitored cycle, so I guess we'll find out! I was told I'd be on the lowest dose of it, so hopefully that means minimal s/e!
How are you holding up? Any symptoms that you're seeing?

@molinari- I hope you don't either! Tons of women have success with clomid so hopefully you are one of them. :) I'm doing well, trying not to get stressed and be crazy haha. I had an unrelated doctors appointment today and my blood pressure was higher than usual so I'm kind of concerned about that. I just feel really bloated and gassy (poor DH). Today I was super tired too but I think the long weekend did me in! When will you find out when you can started this cycle?

I've heard a lot of issues with gas and bloating! I don't remember how I was with DD unfortunately, so I never have that to go off of! Tomorrow my RE will call in my Clomid and send me an email with all of the instructions. I'm not sure when to expect to ovualte or when they will have me in to check my follies. I'll keep you updated! Try and keep yourself busy the best you can, I know that's the hardest! I went crazy my last tww. When it was unsuccessful I felt like I was done trying. I'm so glad this time around I've made connections throughout this site! It's been a lifesaver and I haven't even gotten into the actual tww yet! Sending hugs! xoxoxo

I always feel bloated a few days after the IUI and especially on progesterone suppositories. Did you feel that way past time? I start my progesterone tonight so I'm sure the bloating won't be much better. Well that's exciting that the ball is rolling and before you know it you'll be getting your follie check, yay! I'm trying to stay as busy as possible. I'm actually in the midst of studying for my board exam to get licensed in Occupational Therapy. I just finished school and my 16 week internship two weeks ago. That kept me busy during our last couple cycles but I was also stressed. My main goal is to keep stress away and maintain a positive mind. I'm really glad I can chat with you girls on here! It makes the TWW easier to handle when you can talk to people going through the same thing. Hugs! Xoxo
