Just checking in at 9dpiui...nothing much to report. I've got so much going on between work, the upcoming holidays, and my parents coming into town that I haven't had as much time to obsess over symptoms. I bought a dollar store cheapie test the other day and I'm sooooo tempted to POAS on Friday, which would be 11dpiui. I know there not really as sensitive, so the likelihood of seeing anything is pretty slim even if there is something to see, but I'd love to have some inkling of an idea before Christmas...either way.

Babyfever....please stay positive! I'm crossing all my fingers and toes and hoping this is your sticky bean!

Boatlife/KC/Rachel...you guys hanging in there? We're getting closer!!!

Omg babyfever3-4 I am with you at the, this didn't work phase and it is brutal!! Trying not to let it consume my thoughts so I can stay positive and happy. This is my 2nd iui cycle and I am nervous!

And jkbabe!! Paying out of pocket is sooo ridiculously expensive and bleeding is dry, yet we will continue on because we are determined to get through 4 iui cycles before we reconsider our options. However as each month goes by it has become even harder to commit to four cycles. So much build up and hope and then a crashing let down. Way harder than I thought. Women who have done this time and time again, how and where did you find the strength??

Hey KC,
The last couOle of nights have been awful. It's almost like I am too exhausted, I've been falling asleep really early but then waking up after some crazy dream in the middle of night and not being able to go back to sleep. I'll admit I was up at 3 am , taking a preg test. Oh yes I'm fully aware I had to look look like a crazy person :) it was negative but I'm only day 11 so here's hoping !


Baby dust and holiday magic to all!

Hey MMG , I am hanging in ! So many weird symptoms the last couple of days , so I am still hoping. Still afraid to get too overly confident! But It is 6:34 my time and I am already in bed !

Try to resist testing early it is such a disappointment and it could just be too early !

Hey ladies, just popping in at 9dpiui. No real symptoms other than some interesting mood swings, but that typically happens before AF shows, booooo. Still taking my progesterone, 200mg every night before bed since 1dpiui. Trying to figure out when to test, cause I want to know before Christmas! It would be such a great surprise, but I know it's still very early! Here's to hoping for a Christmas miracle for us all!

I'm hanging in! 11dpiui and finally starting to get over this cold. I bought a couple digital tests and had hubby hide them from me so I won't be tempted to test early :) I plan to test on Saturday morning at 13dpiui so maybe my Christmas won't be ruined. I still don't have my usual symptom of sore bbs and I've had more mucus than usual. Have been through this so many times, so trying to keep my mind on other things before I test. Been dreaming of seeing that bfp...

Rachel--that's the worst! I'm getting antsy to test but trying to wait it out. Don't lose hope! I'm feeling exhausted still too, but I think this cold is a big part of it. I keep praying for a surprise before Christmas and being able to tell my hubby.

Any of you ladies still have the trigger in your system 12 days after you had it? Today is 12 days post trigger for me and still have a very faint line. I don't think it's a real bfp because I feel after coming on. Last month the trigger was out of my system in 8 days so I'm really confused.

Well ladies, I caved and POAS early, and on a CB digital at that, well...it came up BFN! Merry Christmas to me. I know it's only 10dpiui but I think I've given up. I don't know how so many of you do this for years, it's only been since August and I am so emotionally drained every time you see the negative. I'll continue to take my progesterone until day 14 but at this point I have no hope. Good luck to you ladies, I'll check in on you all and passing all my baby dust to you!

Hang in there ladies. This is one of the hardest things to go through and I wouldnt wish this stress on anyone.. I don't know how couples go through years of this either! Hubby and I have grown closer together through this ttc journey and I'm learning to cope with the stress by praying and journaling my experiences.

For a little more about us...After 14 months of trying, we finally started seeing an RE. We're both 23 and never thought it would be an issue for us to conceive. Our trouble is mainly due to low sperm count. I've always had normal cycles and everything is good with me physically. I'm taking thyroid meds to help lower my tsh levels due to hypothyroidism.

I say all this because after being disappointed month after month, we still have hope. We've laughed and cried together and have renewed our faith in God. Whether you believe in Him or not, I'm sure many of us believe everything happens when it's meant to happen. Please don't give up!!

I'm new to this site. I have had my first IUI this month and now in the two week wait. Since the procedure, two days ago, I have been having hot flashes and unable to sleep. I have been trying to see if others are experiencing this issue.

I started spotting ever so slightly today, a light brown discharge that I always get right before af. I'll spot 2-3 days before I get full af. So I don't think it took this go around :(
I thought for sure there was a chance because my bbs are always sore before af comes. Even now they're still not sore. I'll never understand my body..
