Hello Friends, so good to see this forum where we can share our experience. Just had my first iui after two cycle of IVF. First one resulted in BFP but lost it at 3 weeks. Second cycle was stopped mid way as there were no quality eggs. Iui was done on 24th June and test due on 10th July. Got brown discharge and been spotting since Saturday morning(7dpiui). Worried that it's AF, still taking cyclogest and planning to test on 10th as planned. Anyone who had bleeding during 2ww and still got BFP ? Good luck to everyone ttc.

Maybe it's implantation bleeding? I hope so!

Out of curiosity, how come you're doing IUI after IVF?

I hope do too pandagrl, it's been continuous , still keeping fingers crossed until 10th July when I do the test. The doctor suggested IVF and we went for it as we were ttc since 3 yrs, after 2 unsuccessful cycles , going for iui now. Only learning from forum now that iui is generally done first. Good luck to you , what stage are you in now ?

Hi Daisy, I don't think there are any rules! But you're right, most people start with IUI first and then move on to IVF but I have heard of the reverse and heard of it working so you never know! I'm sure the doctor had a good reason for it. Was this a medicated cycle?

I'm gearing up for my 5th (and most likely final) IUI. After 4 natural cycles and one miscarriage, this will be my first medicated cycle with injectibles.

Good luck warmnsnug! If they monitored O with bloodwork, I wouldn't worry too much about opk results. Besides, the opk detects your lh surge which happens before you O so it sounds like the timing for the IUI was perfect :)

Any body had a BFN on day 13piui, and then a positive on day 14? Took a HPT this morning with no luck, so I'm wondering if I should still have hope it will change tomorrow? I can't think straight!

Ladies, hope all is well! Had to come here and post!! Y'all know I took a break from The IUIs. So I stuck to the herbal tea mom sent me from Kenya. Yucky stuff! I also added FertileCM and got back on Fertility Blend. I fervently prayed. I let it go for God to do His will. Two nights in a row, he worst of cramps in my lower back, radiating to my abdomen. They had me in tears. Starts in the evening, worst when I lay down no matter which position. Then I thought, I better test. AF was due yesterday and my breasts have been tender for more than a week. BFP!!!!! Says 2-3 weeks. I'm still shaking, and crying, and just plain stoked!! God has answered my prayers. 4 and a half years of trying. May the good Lord bless me with a healthy 9 months.
Praying for good news for y'all too!!!

Panda girl and Aly, Thanks so much! We are elated and so sweetly surprised! it does not cancel our Kenya plans though! LOL! I will be about 5 months along so I should still be good for travel. No Zika on that part of the world has been reported so that is comforting. But I will be bathing on DEET no matter what lol! It is safe to use while pregnant I read.
I will keep you all posted on my first ultrasound Tuesday! I am still praying for twinsies lol!
So I have no classic symptoms of pregnancy, what is up with that? lol! I need proof! hehehehe. No nausea, no fatigue to speak of, just some notable weight gain already *sigh* and bloated feeling 24/7. My boobs are tender and growing yay for cleavage! Weird symptom is the night time back pain/cramps that are quickly alleviated with tylenol thank God. But I stick to one extra strength Tylenol one every two days if i suffer the pains. Looking forward to my first appointment so i can know to differentiate the normals and abnormals. I started on Iron since my prenatals do not have any and I supplement the folic acid in my chewables with an extra 800 mg for now.
I am wishing and praying for everybody for the blessings. This journey is rough, and it is not over so I will be hear to support y'all and keep you posted. You kept me sane during the tough times, I ain't goin' nowhere :)
Hugs to all and baby dust!
