Hi Ladies, my levels are 222 today :) I go back again Wednesday. Then my first ultrasound will be on 1/3

I am shocked and so happy at the same time.

My wife and I just went in for our IUI this morning and I am over the moon with my counts this month. This is our 3rd IUI with the first one having 9 million pre and 2 million post wash (low motility), second one having 44 million pre and 10 million post (75% motility), and this one having 88 million pre and 24 million post (80% motility)! We are very hopeful this month (really most months, even after trying for nearly 2 years). Thinking positive sticky thoughts and entering the TWW optimistic.

Haven't really had any symptoms...been eating pineapple...but I also have been working a a lot too to try and keep my mind off stuff. Manjula I'm sorry things didn't work this cycle for you...but I know it will happen for you...and for all of us. How are you doing? Ajb how are you?

Future- good luck to you and your wife. My husband and I just found out last week we are pregnant from IUI. He had 6 million post wash and 83% motility. So it can happen. 24 million is awesome. Sending positive vibes your way :)

ggarcia- sending you juju and baby dust lol. Wishing you the best of luck. Try and keep busy. Take care

Ggarcia- thanks for asking. I am doing well. I'm around the same as you, I am 6dpo. Not doing any fertility treatments this month was the best thing I could do. I'm so less stressed about it. Not even symptom spotting....yet!!! Looking forward to a busy Christmas weekend.

I had my second IUI this past Saturday. This time around things have been different. The 1st IUI I got TERRIBLY sick after the HCG (Ovidrel) shot. It made me feel like I was already pregnant and had morning sickness. BLAH! This go round I used Femara instead of Clomid and did 7 days of the Gonal shot instead of 5. Everything on my husband's side looked GREAT and my eggs matured to the right size. Last time I did not cramp nor spot after the IUI but this time I did. FINGERS CROSSED that it worked this time!!!

Rachel- my fingers are crossed for you. Good luck to you.

Update for me. Today my beta hcg level dropped to 7.5 and I have been bleeding since last night. The nurse says it looks like I’m having a miscarriage. This sucks. I knew in the back of my mind this happens with your first pregnancy but I tried to think positive and not think about it. I got back next week to make sure my levels go back to normal.

Rachel17- I’m doing okay thank you for asking. The ladies on this thread so far haven’t had a BFP and were taking a break this month to let their body rest. I think January they will be back and ready to go again.

I’m sorry you got sick with the Ovidrel. I’m got lucky and didn’t get sick from it or any of the medications I took. May I ask why your doing an IUI? My husband has retrograde ejaculation so this is why we’re are doing it

Are these holidays keeping you busy enough through the tww?

I have NEVER had a BFP either. This is my second IUI and this one has been sooo much better other than the TWW. My 1st IUI was February 2016 and of course BFN and I was awfully sick. My husband and I have unexplained fertility and it is soooo frustrating. We've been trying since 2005. We have adopted a precious little girl and wouldn't trade her for the world.

Hi ladies, I hope everyone had good holidays. I did, but now back to the grind.
Lyn17- I am so sorry to hear your news. I had a miscarriage back in May and it is awful. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Rachel17- you should be pretty close to testing. My fingers are crossed for you! Unexplained fertility is the worse. That is what I have besides old age, lol.

I went for my day 3 appointment today. Start femara tonight. Should have my 5th IUI on the 13th or 14th. And then that is it for me.
