Girl, I went grocery shopping but Dory brain I forgot to go check if there were any cheapies. So nope I didn't test and I'm glad it worked out the way it did. So I will wait till tomorrow night or Thursday morning. Little bit of back pain this evening. I hope it is not AF. Had been on my feet most of the day then came home straight to the kitchen to help hubby fix dinner. And I had been on my feet grocery shopping roaming HEB as usual. *sigh. This mama is tired! They say opks turn positive with pregnancy. Maybe I should do a Clear blue opk see if I get a smilie. It reads HCG like t would estrogen since they are similar makeup I guess. What do y'all think?
Pandagrl don't drive yourself crazy with testing. Since I started this journey, I really haven't been a tester at all!!! I guess I stay away from disappointment. But sometimes you just wanna know and you just keep hoping you see what you wanna see. It's sad the station in life we are in but God is moving us to where He wants us to be. Selah.

Just had my first IUI with donor sperm (husband had vasectomy)
We did an IVF cycle but DH sperm sample wasn't to par.

Today is 3dpiui
I was taking femera cd 3-7 10 mg
And on cd 14 we did the IUI with 2x17mm and 1x15 mm follicle
Turns out my body decided to start O on its own so we did an IUI wuth no trigger
Cross your fingers for me

I know it's too early for symptoms but yesterday I had 3 headaches (never get headaches) heartburn and heavy bloated feeling with cramps

Fingers crossed

I feel like 17 is a small follicle...
Has anyone heard success stories with such small follicles ?

Hi BLewis. I just had my IUI yesterday with 2 follicles measuring 17.5 and one a bit smaller - we are in the same situation! Don't lose hope.

17 is good! They usually like 16.5 or greater.
AFM, heading home, got off work then went to church for child care volunteering class although I already started serving. Missed the last class. A massive headache started while there and it still is lingering. Lower abdominal pain that scared me for a second but shall soon find out if it's baby or AF!!
I just bought the clear blue digital test. Has 3 in it. Will keep y'all posted on the results in an hour or so. I'm getting nervous....

Oh Mrs. R, I'm so sorry :( My heart goes out to you, I know how sad and discouraging it is :(
Are you going to confirm with bloodwork?
I went in for a blood test this morning but I'm not very hopeful. Just want to kill the urge to keep testing at home because af probably won't show until late this weekend or early next week. Can't deal with the mindf*$% of not getting my period for a few more days.
Hope you are doing okay, *hugs*

Pandagrl, It is alright. I tested again this morning just to confirm. No I am not going to do any bloodwork. I think this is the end of the road for me for now, with the assisted fertility. If Gonal F and femara + ovidrel (hybrid cycle) did not work, I need to take a rest from it all. It has been financially and emotionally stressful, and maybe it is just not our time. I realize my husband is older, 49, and our infertility is male factor. But I still cannot help feeling the burden. I just hate the many questions from family, friends, and strangers about if I want kids. Really? Really?
So today I am just going to be sad......

I am sorry to hear the news, Mrs Roulette. I know nothing I can say will make it better. I do understand the emotional and financial pain you are going through. Maybe the most comforting thing is to know you have a support system and a husband who loves you no matter what. I don't know if you believe in God, but focusing on Him is one of the ways I stay sane in all of this. There are many women in the Bible who were barren and their stories provide hope for me. You are totally allowed to be sad; as many days as you need. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you look for the next step to becoming a mom. <3

Sly thx! In God's time, it will all work out. Hubby is very heartbroken but ready to see a male infertility doc to see about increasing his sperm count. So that's where we are at.
Went for a 2 mile walk today. Whoa! These fertility meds have packed pounds on this booty! Terrible!! Then we ordered pizza delivery from double daves. Our favorite since we moved to Austin. Doesn't help the booty does it? Heheheheh. This sista was not about to cook. And we haven't ordered in in more than a year so today it was called for.
Getting ready for bed, went to the bathroom and saw pink stain when I wiped. We bd'ed a few hours ago but I have never bled from that. Seems like it would be too early for AF but I guess she is coming. So odd coz she always comes as dark brown before red. Tmi in sorry. Lol!
Thanks for your prayers aly and God bless y'all ladies as we tread this path of infertility. It shall be well, I know. But it's so hard not to wallow in self-pity and profound sadness. Thank God for supportive spouses and genuine friends; and my neighbor couple that has a wine bottle for me to pop open this weekend ...... :) . The sweetest guys you could ever know!
