Anyone else going in for that hopeful BFP test on New Years Eve??? Lets support one another. I know I sure could use a friend during this time.

Just had mine today ... I had 1 mature follicle. This is also my 2nd IUI. Praying it works this time for both of us. Ill have to wait until New Year's Day. It'll be the best way to ring in the new year.

Baby dust to you!!

I only had 1 mature follicle too. I had IUI yesterday and this is my second one too. Cool. The first time around I had a lot of cramping the day of the IUI and it went away after a while. This time I have had no pain. Nothing. I had a bout of nausea this afternoon but I hadnt eaten very well today. And I also chalk this up to the Trigger Shot. Last IUI i guessed on every little thing and thought i was for sure pregnant and well i am not doing it this time. I would just love some support with someone going through the same stuff.

Baby dust for you too!

I had tons of symptoms the 1st time around. My DH and I for sure thought I was pregnant; I ended up testing on CD12 and got the bfn. But we were still hoping up until we got the blood test results from the RE a couple days later. Of course AF was late just to spite me. This time around I'm gonna try to stay busy so I don't get crazy overthinking every little symptom. If it doesn't work this time, I'm gonna ask the RE to increase my clomid dose to 100mg so I can at least get 2 follicles.

Hey guys, hope its ok I'm joining you. We had our 2nd IUI on Friday and are hoping for BFP on New Years. The first IUI was really hard on me because I definitely read into every ache, symptom, and feeling and just knew we were pregnant. Broke my own heart. This time I have swore not to get excited but we will see. I'm already thinking about testing out the trigger. Do you any of you do that?

Delaney you and I are literally on the same plan. Had my 1st IUI then too. I'm on ovidrel and 50mg of clomid. I wasn't planning on testing out the trigger. I was so disappointed last time and it was my bday too which kind of put a damper on everything. im trying to stay busy this time around. It's been working the past couple days so I'm hoping I can wait til new years to test. It looks like your RE increased your clomid dosage - did you ask them to? Your follicle size are amazing this time around. Plenty of targets! I had an 18mm one this time around and 2 smaller ones at 10/12mm.

I didn't test out the trigger last time but I just bought bulk tests online so I figured I might as well use them. I don't even know when to start testing thoigh. I guess I need to look at some other posts on here and see what the other girls did. I'm also working a lot of overtime trying to stay as busy as I can, good thing there's a holiday in the middle to keep me busy too.

Yes my RE upped my clomid to 100mg and started me on the suppositories. I don't know if you have taken them but they are kinda disgusting. I'll over share if you want to know lol. He wasn't happy with my production last month with only the one so he thought we should up it. Just hoping and praying it sticks.

18 is good! You just need one! :)

I had the same thing Delaney. We thought for sure I was pregnant all the symptoms I had. Then AF showed up on 13dpiui and well that was exactly right for my period. I was very very upset I told my self this time I would not read into every little detail. Well this time around I have no details to talk about other than peeing alot which I chalk up to the Progesterone. Good Luck Ladies.
Baby Dust..

We test on the 30th cause the RE office is closed NYE.

OK so quick update. Still no symptoms other than a little bit of sore nippies. I chalk that up to progesterone and possibly the shot. But *warning this is a bit graphic* last night my husband was looking at "me" and he said what is all this sticky stuff? Well I dont know either so I thought I would ask.... Thanks...Hope you all are keeping yourselves busy during Christmas. HUGS

Ok guys... I'm 8dpiui today 12/26 and I'm feeling weird. I have a full feeling in my lower abdomen and my ovaries kind of ache. Like I am very aware of them. I read on another blog that this could be cysts... Should I be worried? I have not tested at all and am feeling pretty negative about this. I do have really sore boobs/nipples but that could be progesterone or anything else. Any advice would be helpful..

I had a little bit of pain yesterday. And this morning I have full on sore throat and cough and runny nose. Ugh.

Delaney - I have a cyst on the outside of my uterus and my dr isn't too concerned. Said it may make things more uncomfortable. I don't know if that helped. BUT it's what I know. :)

Delaney - I had a cyst a while back in the summer and it was really painful and I was cramping a lot. I also have fibroids which didn't help with the pain. I ended up going to the ER and they gave me some pain medicine. Since the cyst was 2cm they didn't think I needed surgery so the doctor told me it'd go away once I got my period. If you get any pain, I'd call your doctor just to be safe. The ER doctor did a CT scan which I found out afterwards from my PCP is really bad for your ovaries. My PCP was pretty pissed about it. Anyway, it went away right after AF.

I've only had symptoms on Christmas Eve. I was literally nauseous all day. Then I got some ginger ale later that night and felt better since. I'm 8dpiui so a little less than a week to go!

Thank you guys for your input. I haven't had any real pain just a dull ache. Just worried about my chances of bfp this month..

Julie sorry about you being sick:( hope you get to feeling better.

Muraski finally a little less than a week! Are you waiting it out until the 1st? I think I'm probably gonna test Thursday morning since we will probably go out for the new year.

I test on Wednesday. Beta. I am so nervous because I haven't had many problems at all except this sore throat and cough. My husband said I smell "different" today and yesterday. Not sure if thats progesterone. And I have lots of CM.
ONE thing my husband said last night was that I was glowing last night. But he didn't elaborate on it.

Well I hope everything Is alright with you two others....
