Postby lindsaypaige » Mon Feb 15, 2016 9:45 am

Hello everyone I had my first iui Friday and now im in the dreaded tww! I am 28 and husband is 36. we have unexplained infertility. I took clomid on cycle days 3-7 and had a hcg shot on cycle day 13, Then I had procedure two days later. Husband sperm count was good at 59 million and I had two follicles at ultrasound. Hoping for good outcome.

Hi Lindsaypaige - I am one day ahead of you. I had my second IUI on 2/11! Hope this TWW goes by fast. SO far I am a bit more relaxed this cycle. :) Any symptoms yet? I know the meds can play tricks on us tho :(

Welcome Lorsm! I had mine that day as well! It is my second IUI which went better than my first last month lol I was super tired first few days after IUI where I had to nap every day at 5pm. But I am thinking it was due to the trigger shot. Yesterday I had my 7dpo progesterone check and it was only 10.2. Makes me sad b/c I should be at least 15 or more. They told me it was still good and indication that I had ovulated. Also, I guess that number fluctuates throughout the day. I am on progesterone suppositories so that will help. I felt like the number being low means I am probably not pregnant. But I am assured that doesn't mean anything that I still might be and its early. Only other symptoms I have had was wednesday and last night from about 6pm until I went to bed I had cramps almost like AF which was freaking me out. I was thinking it is too early for AF to start! But each morning when I woke up they were gone. I also have had mild breast tenderness on the sides mainly, but that is not uncommon for me before AF. I go to the dr for follow up next Thursday which will be 14dpiui. How about you any sysmptoms? How long have you been trying??

I'm in my first TWW!

Postby Tails89 » Fri Feb 19, 2016 2:14 pm

Hi guys, my partner and I are in our first TWW after our first IUI. We used injectables and are now on day 7DPIUI. I've had a lot of symptoms, strong twinges in the left side of the groin, cervical twinges, nausea on days 5&6 and some tummy cramping. We decided to do a test today as impatient and it came back negative :( I think it's too early though, I was convinced due to what I've been feeling I would get a positive result so I'm putting it down to testing too early. Hoping that we've been blessed first time!

Hello, dbliz and all others,

Tails89, I hope you will be blessed the first time as well!!

This would be my first IUI. Here's a little background, Husband is 31, myself 28. TTC for 5 years on and off. Last two year it has become more serious. I am trying not to obsess over it as I usually do every time but I am. We've been diagnose with unknown infertility as both our results came back completely normal. I have normal menstrual cycles, and O naturally. So to fall under unknown seems as bad of news as knowing what the issue was. Now we don't know what needs to be corrected. Obviously something is wrong. Anyway, I have done clomid for 9 cycles, used preseed, opk clear blue, drink fertility tea, extra vitamins, lost 45 lbs, pretty healthy and still nothing. Husband is just as healthy. We both come from big families, and are the last couple not to have children so it is quite heart breaking seeing my sister in laws have babies for the last 4 years. You just want it to once be you!
AF- Took letrozole from days 3 to 7 / Clomid doesnt seem to work for me
Day prior to IUI: Trigger shot 10,000mm? I believe. 2 mature follicle of left, 4 follicle on right ovary, not expected to mature.
IUI - Cramping afterwards all day / super thirsty. Probably normal
Day 1 - 6, no symptoms, just thirsty, headache off and on probably side effect from shot. PT test everyday with cheap test just to see the trigger shot level reduce. False positives
Day 7 - AF cramps, gassy, too early? so maybe a good sign? Still positive PT test.. but false positive due to HCG shot
Today, still cramping and thirsty. Nothing to out of the ordinary. My Sister, mother of 3, says I shouldn't feel anything in the uterus, but i swear I felt some tugging.. Probably just me over exaggerating. If the test is still positive in the next 3 days then I may become ecstatic since it will be 10 days pass the trigger shot. lol Day 8, PT is still Positive, kinda hoping it just stays positive. =D

Sorry so much, but I love reading all the stories on here. So how is everyone's 2ww going thus far?

Hi Ladies!

Anyone test early today?? I tested this morning 11dpiui and it was a BFN :( I might just stop my progesterone suppositories as well now b/c it just artifically delays AF for me 10 days! ugh I have a Dr appt Thursday as well.

Hope someone gets a BFP!! Baby dust!! :)

@ dbliz ahhh I'm sorry ti hear it's a BFN for you, but I think you're recommended to wait 14 days so maybe, just maybe, there's still hope?

I'm on 10dpiui, we tested early on 7dpiui as were excited and got a BFN. I want to test tonight when my partner gets home from work but we are worried we get another BFN and also that it may be a false result??

BFN :(

Postby Tails89 » Tue Feb 23, 2016 1:15 am

We did a test last night which was 10dpiui and still a BFN. Holding out until day 14 but I think it's going to stay a negative which is weird after all the symptoms I experienced last week..

Tails - 10 dpo is still early! We always have to try and remain positive until AF arrives. I plan on testing again as well Thursday morning 14dpiui before my Dr appointment. I keep hoping that it will show a positive so I can walk into the Dr office and show them! lol

Dbliz it would be great if you got a BFP for your appointment! Keep posting on here as I'm keen to follow your story. I haven't created a main post of my own yet I've just found myself reading everyones stories and commented on this thread so it's nice to have someone at the same stage :)

Dbliz any changes? We did a couple of tests last night - 11dpiui - and the negative lines were clear as day but there was also a faint other line. I'm resigned to the fact I'm not pregnant and looking forward to the next cycle of treatment in the hope that I will get a nice surprise on the stick by Friday (day 14). What day are you now? Fingers crossed for you!

Hi Tails - One test you took had a faint line? What brand? I would test again today or tomorrow!! That might be a good sign for you!

I was tempted to test this morning but I didn't want to be dissapointed again. I stopped progesterone like I mentioned on Monday. Still no AF but that doesn't mean anything b/c progesterone suppositories delay my AF. I don't feel pregnant or anything really. I am actually in a semi good mood past couple days and not really tired like I have been. I hope I am wrong and the blood test tomorrow at the dr office is positive!! I am 13 dpiui today. Either way I guess I am ready with whatever the outcome is...

Dbliz how did it go at the docs?

I've done several tests all appearing positive then I took a clear blue digital and it poppednup 'Pregnant 1-2 weeks' so I got my BFP!!! Can't believe it! I really hope you had some good news?
