Question for you ladies who have been through this before. I triggered last night and currently have ovulation cramps. Nothing major, my ovaries feel like they're the size of water balloons and sore. Is this normal?

Hey SarahElise, I think this might happen but it is not common. Some of us feel the trigger more than others.I personally don't at all (triggered 4x)

So, we're after IUI today.DH sperm was even worse than last time:( Well, the count was 4 mil-worse, but motility 80% post wash. HE is on Clomid so I think I feel dissapointed. I so hoped for a better count. He was always 50mil-100mil and dropped that much in 2 months.We don't know why:/

I know I should be happe with better motility, because hey, you only need that 1 guy, right? But... I try not to show, and it's going great because I am away for 4 days for work (that means no BD tonight and tomorrow too:/)But oh boy am I sad and devastated in this empty hotel room :(

I don't want to sound like I already know that it didn't work, because my feight is greater than the moon. I am trying to think as positive as I can, but when you lay down before IUI and the nurse is telling you "Your husband's results are really poor" it does not make you feel any better. I just wanted to cry and run away :(

I wish someone could tell me that 4mil and 80% motility gave a BFP at least 1 happy family :(

Hey bella, dont be disapointed. My doct has said to me that anything over a million and 80% is good. When u buy sprem its usually under 10million per sample.
Chain up, all u need is one.

As for me cd13 follicle scan today still mot ready but they give me the heads up of multiples since i have over 10 follicle on the raise. 17mm 16 16 14 14 14 13 13 10 9mm 3 more days of stimulation. Uff very scary but anything that can give me a better percent of a bfp. Feeling a little uncomfortable. Overy feel full and little tender in my uterus

3rd IUI here we come...

CD 1 today. Hoping this one is the one. Wonder if they'll have me only on Clomid and the trigger again. More vitamins for DH.

Sorry to hear that, Angel. :hugs: I hope this is your last IUI month, and everyone gets their BFP. I'm not naive but it would be wonderful if it worked out that way.

This morning at the scan: Nothing going on with my right side (growth stopped), but when they went to scan my left side a massive follicle popped up. I wasn't sure what I was looking for until I saw it and then it was extremely clear that that was it. So they told me to trigger tonight, and IUI would be Sunday. But when they called with my blood work they said it looked like my body had already started to surge. Any others had this happen to them?

Still triggering tonight, but IUI will be tomorrow early afternoon. I'm not terrible interested in multiples but had hoped at a shot at more than one egg to increase our chances. I have to admit that I'm a little disappointed that my "competiting" follicle disappeared. I have a million questions running through my head and am trying desperately to trust my doctors.

Any thoughts on whether we should BD tonight? No issues with DH, so I think it shouldn't greatly affect our numbers right?

Good luck to everyone getting their IUI tomorrow!! I'm off to figure out how I REALLY feel about giving myself a shot...

Sjf if iui is tomorrow you dobt want to bd tonight. Safe everyone of them for tomorrow. They will get a nice head start when they deposit them right on your uterus. Good luck.

Thank you so much for your support. It really helped. I think in my head I thought the more the better. A year ago DH had 100mil so I thought with that number BFP is 100% certain. But it doesn't work like that.

Wow, that's a lot of folliciles. Congrats! Don't worry it's better to worry about to many children than having none, right :) ? That is a good thing! Are you taking clomid? Can I ask how old you are? I ask because I took 100mg of clomid for 2 days and than 50mg for 3 days and that got me 1 follicile on the raise :(

The only thing we are not doing is the egg retrival we are going for one more iui possible on Wednesday morning.

First iui is done! I was a complete nervous wreck as the nurse was going over everything and can't remember DHs exact numbers. They were all above normal so that's good!! Nurse said everything went perfect!! Now to play the waiting game.

We go in Tuesday & Wednesday for our first iui! Not sure what to expect but praying this will work. After the procedure did your doctors let you go to work?

SaraElise Thanks and I hope your IUI went well today. Now comes the 2WW :/

I had my 2nd IUI this morning. DH's numbers were great, according to the doctor. Hoping for some good news after 2 weeks. If this cycle does not work, we would like to do IVF next cycle.
