Ajb38 thanks for sharing your rough time. I am so pleased you are able to move forward and I hope it all goes well for you c

Balsami my name is serica but found that idea on Pinterest. I'm busy at work this week but next week is hols so I will be needing to keep busy too. I'm 4dpiui at the moment. It's going so slowly. I have had minimal cramping yesterday and today but pretty much no symptoms.

Thanks so much Serica. And good luck to all of you too! I find the two week wait after an IUI is even more difficult than trying naturally.

Hi all.
I am definately out of the game. Got AF yesterday. I called my doctor and we have decided next step is IVF. So blood test tomorrow. I was very feeling very sad yesterday but feeling more hopeful today.

Still wondering when and if my time will come.

Hope you all have better news then me!

Goodluck

Hi ladies, welcome Ajb38! So sorry to hear about your ordeal. Hope you find some support in this group.

special_k, sorry about AF, hugs to you! :hugs: Let's hope IVF is the answer!

AFM, 10dpiui, BFN on a 25miu test. The cruel thing is, I woke up with sore boobs and queasy - must be the extra progesterone :(

special_k, I am so sorry about AF, I really hope you get your bfp with IVF, my thoughts are with you, I hope to hear from you again, who knows, we might see each other in the IVF forum...

Ajb38, I am sorry for all that you have been through, it must be really hard... welcome to the forum and I hope your TWW passes by like a breeze!

Serica, our dates are almost the same, I am 3 dpiui today and it seems like time is going by so slowly!

Balsami, 10 dpiui is still so early! At least you know the trigger is out of your system... there is still hope :)

AFM, I'm well, trying to keep myself together. We figured out our plan : IUI in November if this one doesn't stick then a pause in December and IVF for the new year. I'm trying to talk to my friends more, over the phone and I am even going on a trip this weekend to meet a longtime friend in Toronto. I can't wait. Seems like ages since I've treated myself to a special event...

Wish you all well, I will be reading you all :) hugs !

Thank you all for the warm welcome. It definitely helps to have a supportive group to talk to since no one else really understands the struggle of infertility unless you have experienced it.
I am hoping to see lots of BFP's from all of you while I await my IUI:)

Hi ladies. So sorry it did not work for you special k but as geeky gab said I too may see you on another chat next year if mine fails. I'm 6dpiui with minimal symptoms. Don't feel pregnant at all and feeling quite down about it all really for no reason. Think I'm just exhausted. Finish work for the school hols tomorrow so I can get some much needed rest. How are the rest of you feeling? Think these progesterone suppositories are making me so tired.

Hi Ness. Wishing you all kinds of luck on your first IUI.
On my first one I was on just Femara. I only had one follicle grow. So my next cycle I did Femara plus follistim injections. I ended up with around 4 or 5 follicles that month. So the follistim definitely gave me that boost I needed. If this one doesn't work fo you maybe you should ask your dr about adding injections.

Hey yall! Sry ice been outta touch this past week... i buried myself in my work... it helped keep my mind off of this never-ending wait... 9 dpuiu today... i dont know if im having any symptoms or not... everytime i think something is a symptom, i talk myself out of it. So, who knows! Having blood drawn on wed (the same day AF is due). Fingers crossed for everyone still waiting!

Tested today..... Looks like a faint positive to me! My last ovidrel inj was last Sun at noon. Could this still be a false positive? Blood test is scheduled for Wed (same day as my expected period). This is the first test I've taken since IUI.

Hi ladies, sorry I have been keeping myself busy these past few days but now approaching the difficult last few days. I am 9dpiui today. My last cycle I only made it 10 days before my AF came so feeling a bit anxious about it today. I have had quite a few symptoms the last two days of tender breasts, flatulence, cramping and shooting pains, constipation when I am very regular. Don't know what to think as this could be nothing but my normal period. Hate this waiting. I may do a PT tomorrow if my AF has not come. Trying to stay positive.

Serica, I know how you feel, those last days are the worst, plus all the progesterone symptoms just seem to pile on top of one another..

Puttam, I think there is a good chance for the test to be a false postive, unfortunately... you had the trigger 7 days ago? Personaly, I have tested positive (rather strong one too) at 13 days past trigger shot. :( but everyone is different and metabolizes differently. Hopefully yours is showing something else and will get darker over time :)

Is there a preferred time of day to do a PT? Thanks for your understanding have you got your BFP this cycle geeky gab ? Or are you close to testing yet?
Puttam how are you doing? I know you are close to testing too as I am now 10dpiui. Feeling anxious as I have never made it to PT day beforeAF came.

Hi Ness, sorry for the late response I am emotionally all over the place at the moment. I never had any problems with follicles growing my issue is always excess fluid or lining problems so I am now on progesterone pessaries. How are you feeling?
