So I'm super confused with my ovulation. Anyone had this kind of situation while taking trigger, I had ovulation cramping today, some EGCM, and pimple on my face as during ovulation. So I would ovulate on my own today, but I got trigger on Thursday to speed up ovulation. Doing math, it all ended the same. I had no symptoms that I was told trigger causes. I feel normal as I would without trigger. I'm afraid, the shot messed up my chances for this month. Not sure if IUI was scheduled right.
Sorry if I whine too much past few days, I'm just lost :(

Tiger - I am sorry AF showed. :( Maybe trying naturally without the stress is just what is needed! :wink:
miminonka - I did not have a trigger. I caved and tested yesterday (8dpiui) even though I know it is way too early, but of course it was BFN. I am going to test again later this week. My RE's office doesn't schedule me for a beta test unless I get a positive test on/after 14dpiui.
Juls - I am staying positive, especially since you had similar symptoms! How early did you test, or did you wait for beta? Also, had a question - did you have implantation bleeding? My computer isn't letting me go back past page 8...grr.
asiula - I am not sure about triggers, I've never had one. Fx for you girly!!
Chantilly - Staying positive is the best thing you can do for that bean right now! I found this:
hCG levels in weeks from LMP (gestational age)* :
•3 weeks LMP: 5 – 50 mIU/ml
•4 weeks LMP: 5 – 426 mIU/ml
•5 weeks LMP: 18 – 7,340 mIU/ml
•6 weeks LMP: 1,080 – 56,500 mIU/ml
•7 – 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 – 229,000 mIU/ml
•9 – 12 weeks LMP: 25,700 – 288,000 mIU/ml
•13 – 16 weeks LMP: 13,300 – 254,000 mIU/ml
•17 – 24 weeks LMP: 4,060 – 165,400 mIU/ml
•25 – 40 weeks LMP: 3,640 – 117,000 mIU/ml
so it seems 18 is a good number!! Keep us updated after your beta today!! Thinking of you! :babydustb:

afm - Finally kicked this "cold"! Just have a little bit of a lingering tickling throat. No more nausea since last week, but I have been eating a ton....and when I mean a ton, if anyone knows what Kobe's is - I killed my whole plate, then asked to go get ice cream, ha! I read in another forum that a few women got extremely hungry during implantation, but who knows.

Side note everyone....I think I am out this cycle. I just went to the bathroom and had some (TMI Alert!) brown discharge in my underwear. :doh:

I am hoping for the best and praying it is implantation bleeding! The next few days will definitely be telling...

Asiula, it sounds like you are very stressed about the trigger. Was that your first? Maybe it did not mess with your cycle, maybe it did its job? Try to stay positive. Fx
Boatlife - hoping with you that this was implantation bleeding!
Chantilly - was thinking about you girl and your test today. Let us know how did it go

Boat- I did have Implantation bleeding! Early too... 4 dpiui. I thought I was out. Hopefully you're having Implantation bleeding today!

Chantilly- hope you get good test results today!

My bloodwork is good so far, with an ultrasound scheduled for friday. Here's hoping there's a real, developing embryo in there! Trying not to think about it too much but it's hard!

my second beta came back at 26. not even close to a double. The bottom line is I am either waiting for a miscarriage or a ectopic pregnancy. I have a repeat beta on wed and a appointment with my RE. I still haven't tested or told DH. I am broken. I feel like my body had failed me and this child.

Hugs to you Chantilly!!! Don't lose hope!!! I went through 3 situations like the one you're in now, but things seem to be better this time. Hopefully they just need to adjust some things for you. Or maybe your numbers will take a big jump for the next beta? Have you had this happen before? So sorry you're going through this... it's so hard :-(.

tis is a first for me. I have never had a successful iui. I have no idea what the RE will say because I get my blood results before they do. I only know they are sending me for a repeat beta but I just don't see the point. All I can hope for is it isn't a ectopic because I don't want to risk damaging my tubes. I am just exhausted from it all and not looking forward to telling DH. This was supposed to be my belated anniversary surprize and now I just want to make it stop happening.

I'm so so sorry :-(. Just make sure you're not blaming yourself. You did everything you could. Treat yourself to some comfort food... and your other favorite things. I'll be thinking of you for your next appointment. *hugs*

Chantilly stay positive everything will be ok. Im praying for a healthy sticky beans for you and for your beta to triple up. Just remember it worked.
As for me i have done 5 iui and nothing this cycle didnt go thru we try on our own. Its very tiring, my level of emotions i dont know any more. I tested today just because its 13 dpo negative. This cycle i took it very easy, didn't do the triger shot, no progesteron just the clomid day 4 to 8. I try to keep my hope up but its hard. Usually the doc would cancel iui if you develop to many follicle i have been in with 6 and nothing. Take it one day at the time. You are closer than yesterday. You got a positive!!.
Keep us posted and wish you the best.

Chantilly I keep my FX for you. I'm sorry you have to go through all this.
Juls you are such an inspiration and good hearted person to support all of us here. How are you feeling?
Mglupe hopefully you will see your positive very soon. Every month of trying and being medicated can definitely take a toll on our emotional state.

I'm "4dpiui & 3dpo" and feel just fine. I got my answer that, I in fact, I ovulated. I was testing with opks, and on Monday the test line started fading giving me peace of mind after being in a limbo with trigger. The nurse also confirmed that it would be highly unlikely not to ovulate after trigger. I still have long way before HCG testing day, and hope it will go smoothly. I can't deny thinking about the whole process. It wears me off, and I can't just stop thinking about it even while doing graduate school and working. I wish it was easy.

Baby Dust to all. Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi ladies,
Chantilly, maybe your body has its own way and not all is lost for this month yet? You also seem to be carrying all stress on yourself. Which is so difficult. Fx for you and your little bean.
Asiula, im happy to hear that chat with nurse gave you more confidence in trigger shot. We have to trust something! Especially when this tww is so out of our control.
I am 4dpiui and i am trying to pick up every little signal from my body. Is this cramp minigful? Shall i be using this cleaning product? Those questions and thoughts are always there at the back of my head. I think next week is going to be even harder.
Warmest thoughts to you all.

Hi Ladies - how is everything going?

asiula & miminonka - How are you ladies feeling today? This is now 5dpiui right? Fx for you 2 to get your BFPs!! :D

Chantilly - How did the bloodwork go yesterday? Praying for good news for you! :hb:

Juls - How are you feeling? Good luck for your appointment tomorrow! :D

AFM - I had brown discharge on 9dpiui, but after that it was back to white milky/stretchy. Not sure what that was about, but I am hoping for the best. Done tests since 10dpiui and all BFN. :( AF is due Sunday....so to hold out until then or not, that is the question. I just got a whole bagful of ICs that are calling my name....but every time I see a stark white one, I decide that it's game over and I'm going to stop testing, then in the morning I test again. :doh: I wish Sunday would come already.

Chantilly you have us very ansious wating for news. What your status, i really hope it triple.
Juls sending positive vibes to you and good number as well.
How are the rest of the ladies doing?

As for me, i guess im also out this month rf should be here any day. Not feeling nothing, no sign of rf no bloating, NADA!!
Im officially a year ttc under a specialist, not even once have had sign of bfp. Hobby is fine i have done all sorts of test everything comes back normal. Did a D&C to make sure everything was normal inside, hsg test tubes open. No explanation as to why i cant get prego, its frustrating. Not sure if i should continue trying iui i feel its money down the drain when they cant tell me why i cant get prego.

third beta came back at 27. So a increase of one. Re said its either a blighted ovum or a ectopic pregnancy. Repeat beta tomorrow and now we need the numbers to go down. That is how we know my body is breaking it up on its own if not then another beta every 2 days until it lowers if it increases I will need a ultrasound to detect where the fetus is and possible medication or surgery to remove it. I finally told DH and he took it pretty hard I did not prepare myself for his grief he wants to continue with betas and not do any thing at all he still believes the numbers will correct them selves. He doesn't seem to want to understand that by 7 days they should have moved way up. RE says I am unlikely to be able to try again for 2-3 months which is fine because I will need that time just to try and heal from this.
