Hello Ladies,

I hope everyone is doing well. Geeky - good luck on your Clomid round. Daywoo - Welcome! I have unexplained infertility, too, and it's super frustrating. I hope that this works out well for you even without the actual IUI.

In case you ladies are wondering, yes, I am still testing. lol It is 11 dpiui for me, 12 days since the trigger, and my tests are all positive and shiny today. I am praying this is a sticky baby! I had an early miscarriage with my first, so I am going to creepily watch my lines darken at home, and I think I will go in on Friday for my beta so my RE doesn't get mad at me. lol I actually found out I was pregnant with baby #1 the same day/time as this little bebe... so it's a little crazy how this goes. I honestly can't believe that IUI #4 is a BFP. I was really discouraged and losing hope after two failed IUIs (I got pregnant with IUI#1)

I hope you ladies have a wonderful week, and I can't wait to hear your good news. I will update you if I wind up doing my beta on Friday! :)

Much love, ladies! Baby dust!

Ahh, and before I forget... I don't know if I shared my stats for this cycle:

CD 5-9 - Clomid 50mg

CD13 - 10,000miu HCG Shot; Two mature follicles on right ovary (23mm and 19mm). Lining was at 10mm.

CD 14- IUI - DH's count was 57 million with 91% motility post wash (He was sick with a cold, and this was our lowest count out of 4 IUIs).

Trigger shot went on forever and ever, and finally turned significantly darker at 11 DPIUI.

Geeky - all the very best for your round with Clomid!

Pixie - that's amazing news! I'm really happy to hear that there is a positive line - I really hope that the bloodtest will only bring even better news :) It's funny we're on a similar time line: I also got pregnant with my first IUI ever last December/January cycle, then lost the baby end May and now this is - according to my obgyn - the best round statistically for us for IUI. Let's hope that this will be both our lucky round - we would sure deserve it! :wink:
Also, I just saw your post about the count your DH had - that's a great sample! If ours would ever even be close to that :roll: ...

Mglupe - how are you doing with regards to side effects from the Follistem 150IU? It does indeed sound rather high for an IUI round, but maybe that's just what your body needs. I hope not too much emotional chaos from the hormones! :?

You're never going to believe it... I'm not sure I do. I'm pregnant! I told my nurse to shut up when she called. I can't wait until my wife gets home.

Wishing all of you success and sticky babies! ❤

S&V - wow!!! Congratulations!!!! All the very best for the pregnancy!

I'm 7dpiui today and tested out the trigger - it's already gone (that was fast!). So now I just gotta get myself together and prevent myself from testing before 12dpiui (I know, that's still early but seems reasonable enough, haha).
Anyone else planning on testing on Sunday?

Hi ladies!! Just received my follicle scan on cd11 of my cycle. I was on 150iu of folistem. Very disappointed with my results. 19mm 16mm 13mm 12mm. Only on mature folicles and my lining very bad 4mm. Not sure what is going to happen, doc is out of the office. Thursday they have ivf procedures not sure if they will give me a call with the next step to take. Im so disappointed. They dont open on weekends, which would have given me hope that we can continue with a little bit of more mefication to bust my lining.
Any one has had this happen? I feel like im running out of follicles..

Well I was right I'm out this month and I guess next month too. Af showed early this am. Called my RE and he wanted to see me today for my ultrasound. So I went in and he said we can't do anything this month because I have a large cyst on my ovary. I have to do bc pills this month and see if it helps with the cyst. I am so beyond frustrated at this point I don't even know what to do anymore.

Mglupe - so sorry to hear that :((( I know how disappointing it can be when it just doesn't work out the way it should :( When do you usually ovulate? I had a similar situation in this cycle - I had 1 x GonalF 150IU on CD 5, then on CD 8 up till 11 I had tons (!!!) of little eggs, and I was super worried cause in the last rounds I already got the trigger around day 11-13, but this time around it seems my cycle was way longer. On CD16 there was only one follicle left (20mm) and I was also disappointed and then we triggered and did IUI on CD17&18. I remember that on CD 8 my lining was super low (while on other cycles it was already 8mm!) Maybe your cycle is just a bit off this time around? Is there any alternative doctor you could see just before the weekend in case yours is not available?

SA 2007 - oh no...I'm so sorry to hear that :((( And yeah, nobody except of us unlucky ladies in here understands how damn long one month, let alone two, can feel like! Even a single day can feel like an eternity in the TWW! Did you guys set yourself a limit on the maximum number of IUI rounds and think about alternative solutions after that (IVF)?

For me it's 9dpiui and I'm trying very hard not to interpret too much into all the weird side effects (massive nausea in the morning, pulling pain in the lower abdomen) since I know they come from the progesterone I'm taking, but it still already feels like such a long wait :(

Will anyone be testing this weekend?

Hope- my RE set a limit for us we started with clomid and we're supposed to do 3 cycles with that but the first didn't work and the 2nd I ovulated to early. He switched me to femara and said we would do 3 with that. Ive only had one cycle with it since this month didn't work out so I've got 2 more.

Has anyone tried any of the supplements like fertileaid??

HopeSIN - I'm right there with you! Im 10 dp, through I'm going to try to wait until Tuesday to test if I can hold out. I have lots of progesterone related symptoms too and I'm trying to ignore and not get my hopes too high. My temp increased further yesterday and today though so I'm hoping this continues.

Only a couple more days for you !

Mglupe - keep us updated on what your doc says. I hope you can still finish this cycle with an IUI!! Fingers crossed!

Daywoo - I was really bad and tested today at 10dpiui, which obviously is not only counter-productive but even plain dumb since chances of a BFP (even if pregnant!) are really low. Oh well...I'll test on Sunday at 12dpiui again. But I'm totally with you - if you can manage to hold it together with testing till Tuesday, that's of course ideal.

HopeSIN - usually I'm 13 days. Tuesday is when FF tells me to test so I'm trying to follow that .... but it seems like forever!
