Good morning ladies,
I am really sorry nahakanak, both for your bfp and for your initial RE not advising you properly.. it is so hard because we have to trust the specialists. Personaly, I had to switch RE too, after I got so angry. He looked at my husband, during one of our follow-up meetings and told him, while I was sitting right next to him that "He would have to accept that he did not marry a spring chicken" (its French equivalent, anyhow), I was LIVID.
I know you didn't want the break, but I hope you find time to take care of yourself. You deserve it.

Welcome Kimman and goodnightelisabeth!

Mini, any news ? :)

AFM, triggered yesterday and IUI tomorrow at 11 a.m. I am thankful it is on the weekend and that I don't have to take more time from work! how do you ladies manage? I have 3 "sick days" per year and even when I break them up into half days, I always have to go on my own time.. I mean, only this month, I will have gone 5 times to the clinic!
Best of luck to everyone, and I am thankful for this site, it gives my DH a break.. lol

Hi Ladies,
How long does it usually take your AF to come around after you get a BFN? I had my iui done Aug 2nd and got my BFN Aug 16th (14dpiui). My doc told me to not bother with the blood test until I get a BFP. I'm patiently waiting for AF, but it looks like she's late and if I look ahead, my next iui will happen over Labor Day weekend. I doubt my Kaiser RE will be opening their doors that holiday. Argh! Looks like another month off for me...

Kimman and Cosmonat, everyone's different however I noticed that on my medicated cycles, my luteal phase appeared longer the more follies were mature...

Hi Ladies! Looks like we'll be scheduled for our 3rd iui on September 1st. I'll be going in Tuesday for my baseline ultrasound and will start letrozole. I got pregnant in July on our 2nd iui but it wound up being a chemical which was absolutely devastating. I'm so scared it's going to happen this time around also. I've never experienced any type of miscarriage and I'm hoping the 3rd time is a charm!!

Hello to all,

Just officially started the TWW, IUI done this morning.

Anyone else starting soon (or in the last few days)?

I felt my temperature rising today... I hope we didn't miss the egg by a few hours! It's so hard to be hopeful, but I have to!! If this try doesn't work, we're doing a last round with injectibles...

Hello to all the ladies:) I think i initially posted this in the wrong month/discussion .... Still trying to figure the forum out:)
I am new to IUI process and thought i join a forum. Found this one and i liked it, so decided to join. I am 39, TTC for 1.5 years. DH tests were good, mine were too. So unexplained for us.
I took clomid days 3 to 7, then went to u/c on day 10, on 8/18/17. I think the results were not too good: on the left, 1 follicle at 15mm, 1 at 10mm, 2 at 9mm and 4 not worth to even measure. right side: a possible cyst:( and 1 at 12.3mm, 1 at 10mm, and 6 less than 10mm. My RE was not too excited i dont think.... She said probably only one will mature (the biggest one). Tonight (8/20/17) i am scheduled to do the trigger and IUI on tuesday. I dont think they will be doing another u/c so i am a little concerned as to what are the sizes of my follicles and how many continued to mature. Also did OPK test this morning and it is negative.
Any one had the same situation and actually conceived? Thank you all so much!!! We all need support in this.

Hi ladies,

Straightforward question : for those of you who had one, how did you react to the trigger shot?

Very unusal for me, I triggered last Friday at 11 pm. 5 and 6 days later, I am REALLY energized. Days at work are crazy but I am feeling relaxed, positive, I have high energy and even lost weight?! For the last cycles, I was all the contrary : depressed, anxious, super tired and bloated. I am feeling quite a bit of heartburn and nauseous though.
The TWW is so confusing. lol

Welcome sunshine! :)
Take care!

Hi all!

I am very new to this whole process/TTC Boards.

My DH and I have been trying for a year now and had our first IUI on August 24th. We have MFI; low morph and low count post wash (only 1.25 million *cries* )
I was given clomid from cd 3-7 and trigger shot on Aug 23rd. Had 2 follies on the left side only 21mm, 19mm with 10mm lining. (Darn you right ovary! Do some work!)

I am 4dpiui right now with no real symptoms. Plus, I'm trying SO HARD not to symptom spot. Ugh, I feel like any little twinge is something! - But it's probably not.

I feel like because DH post wash was only 1.25 million that we're out. Even though I try to keep thinking, "it only takes one!" Its just so irritating sometimes, ha.

Anyone else 4dpiui or dealing with MFI?
