Chantilly- I'm so sorry for you and your DH :-(. It's so hard to be in that position. But don't lose hope!! I've been there and things may be better this time...

Fingers crossed for everyone in torture... I mean TWW! It's so impossible not to test even when you decide not to!! Lol.

Thanks for the support ladies, I'm still super bloated and getting more tired and irritable by the day. Today I was a bit nauseous right before lunch when I was hungry. We will see tomorrow with the ultrasound... fingers crossed it's a real viable pregnancy... worried about a blighted ovum.

Boat- your symptoms sound really promising!!

Chantilly - I am so so sorry. I know that there are no words to ease the heartache, but try to remember that this is not the end of your journey, only the beginning - and once you are holding that baby, it will all be worth it!

Juls - How did your ultrasound go today? Hopefully your nausea goes away sooner rather than later!

mglupe - It's like I have an addiction to testing haha!

AFM - Currently 13dpiui ... still getting stark white ICs, so I've basically given up at this point and am just waiting for AF. :( The spotting on 9dpiui is just throwing me off, I never, EVER spot anytime before AF....so I'm thinking maybe the Femara did something to me to make that happen. Not to mention that I've gained like 3lbs, which is insane for me ... I've spent my entire life drinking 4 protein shakes a day trying to gain 5lbs and never anything. Dang nabbit. :doh:

I got good news today! There is no visible fetus or heartbeat just yet (5w4d) but there was a yolk sac in the uterus that was normal sized and my corpus luteum was normal by some miracle too. The femara seems to have gotten me off to a good start. Next ultrasound is in 2 weeks when they hope to hear a heartbeat. I kept having left sided twinges so very glad it's not ectopic.

How is everyone doing in the TWW? Any new symptoms? Boat do you have a beta coming up?

Hi

I am new to this site, though I am happy to find some individuals going through a similar journey. We tried two natural cycles and didn't ovulate, so this cycle we did femara on days 3-7. U/s on cd12 and found a follicle at 14 mm, was told to use trigger shot on cd14 and iui with donor sperm on cd16. Had iui done yesterday.

Now the tww starts....

Mgulpe - so sorry to hear af arrived. Whatever you decide - natural or iui - everytime there is the hope and a chance that next time it will be the one time. What is your specialist saying? Any suggestions for other tests? Would ivf increase your chances?
Chantilly - im so so sorry. Lets hope that your beta decreased and your body sorting itslef out. And getting ready for a next try.
Boat - nothing is lost yet girl! Just because tests are negative, does not mean you are out yet. My friend got negative on 14dpiui. When she repeated on 18dpiui it was positive.
Juls - so good to hear the good news!!! Fx for you and your little bean!
Lovebove - welcome :)
Asiula - how you doing?
Afm - im 7dpiui and it felt like the longest week ever! I have no symptoms. Yes, a bit of cramping here and there, itchy nipples, moody at times but all that is so normal for me prior to af. I wish this wait was easier!

Hello, I can't fall asleep so I might as well update you.
Mglupe - wish you best of luck on your next try whatever path you pick.
Chantilly - stay strong. Please focus on your health and rebuilding your strength after this situation.
Boat - it's not over until AF comes.
Juls - keep growing and enjoy every moment of it. Glad they keep testing you to check your progress.
Lovebove- welcome aboard in crazy 2ww town :)
Mininionka - hang in there. I write you this so you can say the same to me LOL Don't worry about not having symptoms. That makes us two haha. I had bit pulling on the center/right side yesterday morning and light cramps today, but nothing unusual. One week to go.

Love reading your updates. Thx for sharing ladies.

Juls - Awesome you got great news! So excited for you and your little bean! :D
Love - Welcome! How are you feeling? Try to keep yourself busy so the tww goes by fast!
mglupe - I am so sorry :af: showed up...maybe September is just a lucky month! :wink:
miminonka - Hang in there girl, one week down - only one more to go!!
asiula - How are you holding up during the tww? Almost there! Baby dust!

AFM - Good reason those HPT came back negative....the dang :af: showed up yesterday afternoon....right on time according to my Ovia app! So, here we go again. I think I have come to terms with it, because I just knew when I got that BFN on 13dpiui, even though there was still a shred of hope - I would've rather braced myself for a surprise BFP than expect it and be crushed. I did go to Disney Saturday night and I did heed on the side of caution, no rides, no soda, no adult beverages - although now I wish I would have! I think I will switch to Clomid for this upcoming cycle and hope this time works! Baby dust to you all! :D

3rd IUI yesterday morning. DH's motility was much higher this time so I'm hopeful. Fingers crossed!
2013-2015, Trying without medical intervention.
March - May 2016: clomid + ovidrel, ovulation = BFN (4 times with clomid in all, continued to thin lining even with estridial)
June - July 2016: femara + ovidrel + IUI = BFN
August - Sept 2016: clomid + ovidrel + IUI = BFN
Last week in Sept 2016 to date: Informed that my BMI was too high for the clinic to perform IVF. Told to take 6 months and try to lose the weight.

Hoping im really hoping this ttc has made our bank account very low we have not been able to catch up. So one more month not traveling or paying for the injectable and trigger shot will help. The only thing will be not knowing how many folicle i will gave nor knowing what my lining be messuring at ovulation time, but i also have some estradiol that will take on day 10 to ovulation day. Let this cycle being jijiji

Hello ladies,
Sounds like you have a plan for this month mgulpe. Fx and baby dust!
Boat, are you going ahead with iui this cycle?
Asiula, hang in there for sure!!! :)
Afm - yesterday (9dpiui) have been a day of cramping. Carried over to this morning. Same cramping as before af. I strated to feel rather stressed about this tww. On one hand cannot wait till saturday to test. On the other hand - i want to postpone it in case its bfn. Crazy state of affairs!

Miminonka - Yes! We are trying again this cycle. I am switching to Clomid because my RE initially wanted me on that, but I had read so many horror stories, I opted to try Femara instead. I am also adding in the mid-cycle ultrasound to see how many follicles I have and how well I am reacting to the Clomid. I go in for CD3 baseline tomorrow, hoping my lining is thinner than it was last time (CD3 it was at 8.3). Try to relax this last week! Just stay positive and try not to analyze every little thing..I know it's hard! Fx you get your BFP on Saturday!

Hoping - Babydust and fx for you on this round! 3rd times a charm right? :D

mglupe - Maybe a little bit of time off and 'enjoying each other' will do the trick! :wink:
