I'm 9 days post iui and dying to test. Anyone ever test prior to the 2 weeks and got the correct result?

I didn’t test soshy but I would think it’s still too early. As well as maybe not yet picking up a positive, There’s a chance of false positives if you triggered with hcg.
Last cycle was my first IUI and first time I managed to hold out until period. Much less stress and angst as a result!

One follicle at 18mm today. Triggered with pregnyl in clinic and back tomorrow for IUI. Good luck all!

Soshy- I would totally wait until missed period to test. Or at least 12-13dpo.

Hopefulmoms- I have always wanted to try acupuncture but it makes me a little nervous.

Prayingforredhead- my husband had 26 million this time. That’s the highest count he has ever had during our journey and his retrograde. So that’s good but the motility was 42%. Last time it was 83%

I start taking Endometrin (progesterone suppositories) on Saturday, 3 Times a day again.... yuck. But anything to Increase our chances of getting the little one or ones here

I start my Gonal F injections tonight 75iu daily until I have a scan on Tuesday. I was on alt days last month so I'm hoping my follies react better this month.

Lyn17- I thought the progesterone suppositories were definitely the worst part of the whole cycle, YUK!!!

I've been going to acupuncture for awhile, I have to say I really enjoy it. Started it ever before my TTC journey, I find it really helps my mental health.

Soshy- Hoping you get your BFP!! Just a few more days, it’s so hard to hold off from testing!

Emcbee- Hookng your IUI goes well tomorrow! Exciting’

Lyn- WOW! Huge improvement on your Hubbys count! That’s awesome, although I know motility wasn’t as good..the count has got to make you feel good!

I didn’t notice any hot flashes with femara. I just get really emotional with the injections. Glad I only do 2 or 3 shots because I would be a mess

IUI tomorrow at 7:45am. I'm excited and nervous. This cycle they had me on clomid and ovidril (which I took lastnight). Not sure why I wait till tomorrow...one good follicle at 21.5...

Enigm8a- thats a really nice size follie! My fingers are crossed for you!

I don’t have any rituals “yet” lol, as last month was our first cycle and I really didn’t know what to expect...this month I know the drill...have you read about eating pineapple core? Does anyone know if this really works or not?

I'm super curious! what is that!

I'm very surprised I only had one follicle. I was told I might have multiple due to the clomid. I don't want multiples but I did want to increase the chances of having one baby. we shall see.

Enigm8a- according to a few websites on fertility..Pineapples are loaded with an enzyme called Bromelain which is supposed to encourage implantation when ingested at the right time. Google pineapple and fertility. Supposedly you shouldn’t eat it before you ovulate but once you ovulate eating a slice or two of fresh pineapple with the core for a few days after supposedly helps. There are lots of women that claim it works...I just don’t know what to think?!
