Hi ladies!!! It look like is us three left on this board.
Ckatta, i hope you had lots of fun in your dh birthday. Are you ready for the new cycle?
Panda, i feel you, its hard especially when our biological clock is clicking. But what will be will be. Lets it just flow, enjoy life day by day. You have a gold and you will succeed eventually all of us will get our little bundle.
As for me yesterday got my positive surge and guess what my dh hurt his back at work :( no baby dance last night or for the rest of this week. I feel so bad i was trying for him to get engaged but he said not this one. He was hurting pretty bad. Will like i said hoping day 11 bd the sprem are still alive and meet my eggy. Dontblook like this cycle will be to promising.
Baby dust to us let the two weeks begin!!!

Panda that's a lot to think about.. Definitely take your time figuring this out and be sure when you make your decision. I wouldn't worry so much about the clock ticking, you o on your own you've still got time. If things look promising with the guy you're dating then take a little while and see where things go. You have time left, don't rush yourself into a decision, take your time :)

I did get af and am Into another cycle. I'm not using opks or doing anything this cycle as of yet. We are going camping next weekend, school has started and with sports life is crazy right now! I think this month I'm gonna let it go and see what next cycle brings :)

Mglupe you still have a shot with that bd the day before your surge!! Fx for you!!!

Thanks Ckatta, I'm trying to follow your advice, but it's so hard to let go of the pressure.

Glad to hear it's another rest cycle for you, enjoy the craziness of the start of the school year! :)

mglupe, this happens to me sometimes too, i surge for a long time. i think the important thing is that you will ovulate and hey, maybe if the ovulation is a little delayed this month it gives you more time to bd :) fx!

Hi All,
Hope it's ok that I join in.

I was drawn here because I've just had my first IUI with Gonal F and Ovidrel and I'm in the middle of my TWW.

thanks for sharing and helping with the many questions I've had. Look forward to reading more. xx

Panda apperently you were right :), those sprem do live longer.
Ladies i have not been able to confirm with a positive test, but as today 11dpo these tww have been a roller coster of bobbies issue. From day 3dpo my nipples were kinda sensative, from day 8dpo omg my boobies have been hurting so bad they are enlarge tender and they just hurt. My cervix had drop and them went back up high like for ovulation and my cm has dry up. Bloated in the afternoon woth little mild cramp. Trust me i have been testing since day 8 and NADA!! But for some reason i know from day 3 I im. Fx and praying for a healty sicky bean.
How is everyone else doing?

Good morning!
Thanks Chakka and Mglupe for the welcome.

This tww thus far has been interesting to say the least. I've had some serious ups and downs.
So I think I mentioned this was our first IUI with Gonal F, 125 CD 5-10 and trigger CD11, 1st IUI on CD12 and second on CD12. Our doctor said sperm count was excellent both days. I don't know how many follicles but I know there was 'at least one good one' I'm slowly trying to wrap my head around the process and what questions to ask.

Mglupe - I hear you about the boob situation. They've felt tender and sore and larger from the get go for me. That's been my main symptom. I typically don't experience bb sensitivity leading up to AF. But I've also been on progesterone sup for the first time.

How's everyone doing today?

Mglupe any update???? Fx that your instincts are right!!!

Panda how are you??

Sweetpea fx for you too!!! When are you expecting your tww to be over if you don't get your bfp???

I'm in my tww but don't know how many dpo. I did no tracking, no opks, and no bd-big. I've been so sick for almost 4 weeks that bd has been the furthest thing from my mind lol. I'll wait out this cycle and see what happens next cycle :)

Hi ladies! :)

Mglupe, omg, I'm feeling super excited! What's the 411? Have you had a chance to test yet?

Sweetpea Butternut, welcome to our looonggg convo. It takes a while to learn all that's involved with your cycles and the IUI process but I seriously hope you don't have to learn any more of that stuff because your first cycle is the lucky one and you get pregs. Good luck!

Ckatta, sorry to hear you've been sick. There's something going around my office too and all of us have taken a turn. I'm getting close to O this cycle and thinking about trying naturally with my partner. So freakin' nervous though.. I'm seeing a new therapist and she seems to be good, she specializes in fertility stuff and had two children with donor sperm because they couldn't with her husband's sperm. Her kids are adults now. Anyhoo, she's great but I am having very weird feelings, like I'm way less into having kids then I was. I think getting to the point of doing IVF completely freaked me out, made me do a full stop and re-assess my whole life and situation. It's weird how you can want something so badly for so long and then just kind of stop caring... at least it's weird to me! I hope I'm not lying to myself.

Get better C! Mglupe, I'll looking for your news, fx! :)
