Miz - I am so sorry. :( Fx your next cycle gives you your BFP! Just stay positive.

Miminoka - Welcome! How did you feel after your trigger? Good luck and baby dust to you for your IUI tomorrow!!! :babydustg:

Juls - Yay for great numbers!! So happy for you! :fingersx:

asiula - Good luck on your IUI today! I'll be thinking of you today! :D

Tiger - It's not over until the :af: shows her face! You're having all good symptoms though! I am feeling okay, starting to notice some symptoms and it makes me think it worked, only because I didn't get a trigger shot - but I definitely don't want to get my hopes up.

injie - Not over yet! Fx for AF to stay FAR away!!

AFM - Having been feeling so great the last 2-3 days. I have a mild "cold"...but it's the middle of summer and I live in Florida, so I'm not sure where that came from. Also, I noticed that my bbs are extremely veiny....something that I haven't seen before, not even with my DS (although that was 8 years ago, so who knows!). I also threw up this morning after going to let the dogs out, my dogs are in need of a bath - but the smell just hit me and it all let loose. I am just hoping to get this TWW over with to know if it worked or not! These symptoms sound promising only because I had no trigger shot, but who knows - this game is one with no rules!

Fx for all you ladies getting your IUI today and tomorrow!! :babydustb:

I'm out for August. :( AF decided to show up today. I'll keep a track of how it is this month to see if the clomid/ovidril is truly changing my cycle. I'm not too down because I had been expecting it. Next month we aren't doing another IUI because we are going to be off on a trip during the most important stages so here's hoping we conceive naturally! ;) Anyway, I'm most likely out for September as well but Baby dust to all you lovely ladies! I'm hoping for BFPs for you all.

Boatlife, thank you. When are you checking? Sounds like something is happening for you!
I did not feel any different after trigger but have a rather big red bruise. Have you done triggers?

Asiula - how are you? Sending hugs

Tiger - im so sorry. This is such a rollercoaster. Try to relax and rest on your hols and who knows?

Mininonka - I'm ok. IUI was bit uncomfortable today but nothing crazy hurtful. We had 17 million post wash and 73% motility, and the nurse was very pleased with the numbers. We have doctors order - LOL - to BD tomorrow morning to wrap the process and count days till testing day.
Good luck on your IUI tomorrow.
Tiger - sorry that witch decided to come :( Enjoy your vacation and keep trying.
Boatlife - your symptoms look promising. Keep my fingers crossed for BFP this month for you.

Boat your symptoms sound exactly like mine right before the good results... hopefully good things to come!!

Bloodwork continues to be good so far, I can hardly believe it! Ultrasound scheduled for a week from today, which will hopefully show normal things... eek.

Hello ladies, what is your insight in regards to timing IUI after trigger. I got my trigger on cd10 as I had good follicles and that threw me off with the LH surging and pinpointing exact ovulation day. It looks like I had my IUI 25.5hrs after trigger. When did you have yours scheduled?

Aug 18/cd10 at 8.30am (trigger, 22mm and 17mm follicles)
Aug 19/cd11 at 10.00am IUI
Aug 20/cd12 BD am

You mostlikely ovulated that same afternoon so cd12 is day one. Good luck!! Lots of baby dust for you.
I have had 5iui in total we have try all 24 30 36hr none has work for me. I think i personaly like 24 hr to give my swimers som time to greet the egg. Jijiji. Usually ovulate 30 hrs after the trigger shot.

Asiula, my schedule was bit different.
August 16/10cd scan, follicle 12mm
August 18/12cd scan, follicle 16.5m (8.30am) and trigger shot at 8pm same day.
August 20/14cd IUI at 12pm.
Not sure why those timings of trigger shots vary so much?

Thanks mglupe for your post as well miminoka. I'm just confused because I usually have EGWCM when I ovulate, and I didn't have it this time. I had and still have bit of O craping. Not sure if the clomid and trigger contributed to that weird effect. I just hope I ovulated. Honestly, I feel discouraged.
Thanks for all of your support. Baby Dust !!!

quick input. I had my trigger at 8 AM on cycle day 13 (after I detected a natural surge on cycle day 12 at 4 PM) AND IUI ON CYCLE DAY 14 AT 10 am. mY FOLLIE was 16.5 on cycle day 12 scan.

Well I had my beta this morning and despite my clinic being closed I logged onto my ehealth account and got my results before my RE will tomorrow. My beta came back at 18? I googled my face off some sites claim anything over 10 is a positive others say anything over 25. I have never had a number over 1 in all my iui cycles. I am concerned with the low number perhaps it indicates a chemical pregnancy? I wish I never even looked now I am confused and scared. I cannot even tell DH since I don't wan him getting excited for nothing.. I don't even want to get excited for nothing. any one ever heard of a beta that low? I have a repeat test Monday. guess I am in limbo until then? this might be the most nervous wedding anniversary ever tomorrow :(

your so sweet! I am trying to relax and just lay around. I am calling my RE as soon as his weekend hours start although I know there is nothing they can do until my repeat beta on Monday. I am just trying to stay calm until then. A tall order for sure! I think its just that after almost 6 years, multiple surgeries and 5 iuis I am scared to get my hopes up too much and keeping it from DH is difficult but I'd rather not tell him until I know for sure.

Hi Chantilly,

Congrats on the positive number!! I second the advice... they should keep checking you every few days to see if it rises. So you should know soon what the situation is. Fingers and toes crossed that it rises and things go smoothly!!

Oh chantilly, its so difficult to wait and not know! Especially around special occasions like anniversary! But your number was positive and now lets hope it is growing and growing and will give you a nice reading tomorrow.

AFM - i had iui yesterday. The sample was good, my lining looked good. The process was tad bit painful, but went well. So i am oficially on day 2 of tww! I have been from one extreme to another. Stats for me do not look good due to my age and being my first iui. And yet i hope! I suppose without hope we would not go on this journey.
Warmest thoughts and wishes to you all.
