-How old are you when you got your BFP? 34
-Was it IUI #1, #2, #3, etc.? #2 (ovidrel on natural cycle/miscarriage) and #6 (femara and ovidrel/bouncing baby boy!!)
-Double IUI (before & after O) or single IUI (during O)? Single IUI
-How many days past IUI when you got BFP? 14 dpiui on first and 11dpiui on second
-symptoms? Absolutely no symptoms!

As you can see from my response, I did have a natural cycle/Ovidrel IUI with a BFP that unfortunately ended with an early miscarriage. We pressed on, added Femara to our #5 and #6 IUI's and now I have a beautiful one year old little boy who is the light of my life! Everyone tells you that IUI won't be successful after 3 attempts and you should just move on to IVF, but I am here to tell you that is just not the case. IUI is so much less expensive and if you have the time and patience it CAN pay off big time! :D

Good luck, kathees! Hang in there. It will happen for you. Modern medicine is amazing and with a little faith....you just never know!

-How old are you when you got your BFP? 29
-Was it IUI #1, #2, #3, etc.? It was IUI #4
-Double IUI (before & after O) or single IUI (during O)? it was a single IUI
-How many days past IUI when you got BFP? 11 days
-symptoms? not until day 11 when I noticed I was unusually tired. I was on my way to work and had to pull over because I was so tired. I thought that was weird and that night when I came home I took a pregnancy test.
-tips and advice for the others who are planning or currently undergoing IUI. It was better once I stopped sympton spotting. During the first three IUI's I looked at every single ailment as a possible sign of pregnancy. The last one I was more relaxed and tried not to think about it much. To be honest I didn't think it would work because the nurse at the RE's office said there was a low sperm count and if it didn't work I could get a refund from the sperm bank.

Being on this website helped me so much. I found a group of women that were going through the same thing I was going through and it made it easier to talk to someone. After I was pregnant I found another group of women with December 2015 due dates to talk to throughout the pregnancy. I still talk to them now in a private Facebook group and my baby girl is 9 months old now.
