Puttam, I hate to tell you this, but I have tested positive 11 days after trigger. I think it just depends on each persons body how fast it metabolizes. I sure do hope it is the beginning of a BFP for you!

Serica, I was never a "believer" in FMU since I always have to go to the bathroom at night and I'd rather not do a PT at 3 in the morning (or I'd never go back to sleep), so I end up testing in PM or evening, most of the time, after holding it for a few hours.
I am at 8 dpo today and been having exhaustion and nausea. Last time on progesterone, my energy levels were ok. Every cycle is different and this drives me nuts!! lol
I think I might just test the trigger out and start today, I got a box of easy@home tests... I think I'd be able to stomach it this time. I'm just not sure whether or not this is helping me to pass time or creating more anxiety.. Oh well.. we'll see!

I just got back from the dr for my day 10 scan. I have 3 nice big follicles on the right and one that could possibly turn in to something. Nothing on the left. Since I have one that is already 19mm and one that is 21mm I am triggering tonight and doing the IUI on Wednesday morning. My RE was worried if I waited any longer that I may ovulate sooner on my own and we would miss it.
So hoping that all it takes is those few follicles on the right!

Geeky gab I have kept myself so busy on my first days holiday that I am exhausted now. Been having a full feeling in my uterus. This whole cycle feels totally different to the ones before but still pessimistic. Good rest tonight for me and. HURRAY I have passed my 10piui AF today for the first time.

S3r1ca, yay for not getting AF yet. I have no idea how you are resisting the PT. I feel like they are always calling my name around 10dpo, lol

I'm too scared to be honest. The longer I leave it the longer I can hope I am pregnant. Silly I know x

Hi everyone! Today I am 7dpiui #1. I took 50 mg of clomid on CD 4-8 and ovulated on my own on CD 12 (I used OPK's). I'm 37 years old and if this took, it will be my first pregnancy. I've been symptom spotting like crazy and I hate it. I keep counteracting the symptom spotting by reminding myself that my chances of conceiving the first time trying is pretty low, but I can't help but be hopeful since I feel so different than any other cycle. I had no side effects from the clomid, but 4dpiui, I had one hell of a migraine that did not leave all day, and I had severe bloating on 6dpiui. I'm having minor tugging pains in my lower belly and it feels heavy. This was the first cycle I actually felt ovulation pain, making me think with the clomid, I ovulated more than one egg. I will test 14dpiui, which is a week from today and Halloween. I'm praying for a BFP!

9 dpiui, 11 days past trigger shot, I got a BFN on a cheapie. I was able to go back to sleep during the night and then rushed to the bathroom once I got up, lol. So I guess that test is valid...

How is everyone holding up? What are you up to? Here, work work work. Once I get home, I am so exhausted, good thing DH steps up and cooks dinner. :)

Im good. Nice to hear from you ladyliz. I am 40 and this will also be my first pregnancy if it takes. I am putting on a brave face to be honest. The excitement of getting to 11dpiui I decided to do a PT this morning which was a BFN. I was so nervous I felt sick. I have had all of those symptoms too ladyliz and feel different to the last failed iui cycle. Still hoping this is too early to get a result and bought some more sensitive PT for the next few days. I feel sick with anxiousness as I am so desperate for this to work. The alternative is unbearable as IVF is so expensive when self funding.

Thank you for your post, S3r1ca. I’m getting nervous myself. I almost want to keep testing with cheapies until 12dpiui or until at least Friday which will be 10dpiui. I now have a moderately painful migraine; I haven’t had this many migraines in years! I’m so bloated it hurts to move. If I’m not pregnant, I feel like I’m being punished for trying, as silly as that sounds. Baby dust for all of us!

Lost my optimism a little bit. Not sure if I will test again until 14dpiui. But not feeling hopeful. I hate this and just want to know now one way or another. I have really sore bbs and some bloating today. I'm also super exhausted but feel like I'm bringing some of these symptoms on with my anxiousness.
Hoping for a major sprinkle of baby dust the next few days. X

S3r1ca and Ladyliz, I'm so sorry you are both feeling so anxious. I truly believe that the TTW with an IUI is much worse than just a normal month because our expectations are that much higher.
I have my IUI in the morning so I will be in the same boat in about a week.

12 dpiui, 9 days since last hcg inj, still getting bfp on all tests, no matter what time of day nor brand (cheap amazon ones included). Quant test tomorrow morning... im so anxious! I probably won't sleep a wink! I still don't know what to count as a symptom or just my looking for symptoms... the only symptom i know for sure i didnt conjure up in my anxiousness, is the random sharp pinching/pulling cramps and consistent low back pain. Fingers crossed inj is not the reason behing the near 10 BFPs i have gotten!!! I will update as soon as i hear from my dr office with result tomorrow!
Serica, i am especially keeping u in my thoughts! Hopefully this is your time! Thnks for being my waiting buddy lol

Baby dust for everyone still waiting!!!
