Prayingforourredhead, I've never done acupuncture for fertility, but many women in my support group have & swear by it. When do you trigger? I think having one follicle at 15 (it will still grow 1-2 up until ovulation so that's good) & a lining of 8 is amazing! We only had one follicle when I got pregnant with our son! So many positive thoughts being sent your way for this cycle to bring a sticky bean!

Karo, I took Coq10, prenatal vitamins & Gonal-f. Not sure if that's what you mean by supplements.

Lyn, I totally see it as well! I'm so stinking excited for you! I'm not surprised that your husband isn't acting excited or being super supportive. Inside I'm sure he is, but I bet he's also protecting himself right now. He'll come around be soon. He likely took the miscarriage very hard & is still struggling. My husband is very sensitive & I could see him being like that had we had a previous miscarriage.

Thank you everyone for the encouragement, I really needed it today!

Lyn- I will definitely let you know how Accupunture goes
I’m excited to try it and hopefully it will stimulate blood flow to my ovaries and help with follicle maturing!

Babydreams- I trigger Saturday night between 10pm and midnight

On a side note: I knew my follicle would be on my left side as yesterday and all day today I have had twinging pain in my left ovary. I’m still getting it as I type this, hoping that means it’s maturing at the 2mm per day rate!

So I just finished my first ever acupuncture...I was a little nervous as I’m not a needle fan...but I really enjoyed it.
My body felt really heavy and very relaxed. I’m going back again on Monday morning before the IUI..
She works with lots of patients TTC, said 6 of her patients got pregnant in December.
So I don’t know if it will help getting me pregnant but it certainly was relaxing!!

Nice. Thank you for the update. I will definitely have to try. We can benefit from some relaxation especially when TTC.

Lyn- have you peed on any more sticks? If so did your line darken? I know your blood test is tomorrow! Praying for good beta numbers!! Can’t wait to hear all about it!

Babydreams- how are you feeling? Your U/S is this coming Friday ...that’s got to be so exciting!!

How is everyone else doing?

I’m going to look up circle and bloom I’m curious to know what it is. I hear I’m on my other TTC tracker newsfeed as well.

Yes my home test are definitely darker. Doctor called today and my beta hcg came back at 152 so I’m really excited. December cycle it came in at 23.5 and they didn’t seem to thrilled. I definitely feel pregnant. I go back Wednesday for another beta text to make sure everything is headed in right direction. RE scheduled us for an early ultrasound on 4/5 to check everything out. Im looking forward to graduating from RE office this time

Praying for you ladies. I really want to hear about more BFP’s this month.

Hey all! We've been busy running around & I'm terrible at keeping up with everyone. I'm doing well. More nausea but that's about it. I can't wait for Friday!

Prayingforourredhead, I'm so excited! Sounds like timing & all was perfect! How did you feel after this IUI? Any cramping at all after? I'm terrified of needles which is why I haven't tried acupuncture again. I did like it the one time I had it done. I feel a bfp coming in about 14 days!!

Lyn, your number sounds great! My first one was 23.6 I think. That ultrasound will be here before you know it!

Sticky dust to all! I'm ready to see some sticks when that time comes :)
