Prayingforourredhead, I shouldn't be since I gave roughly 30-40 vaccines per day to kids for about 11 years LOL totally not the same when it's you getting the pokes! My cramps the night of my IUI were super uncomfortable. I didn't even want to baby dance that night because it hurt so much. I have a really good feeling for you this month!

Enigm8a, what is this circle & bloom you talk about?

Enigm8a- you are halfway through! The 2WW seems to drag on, Im so hoping this is the month for us! We are very close in our cycles and we are close in age... if I remember correctly you said you were 36, and I turned 37 last month

Babydreams- Same here...we didn’t BD last night because I was not up for it at all, I just laid on the couch.
I am also having weird stomach cramps/ spasms today.
Thanks for your encouragement!!

We must have a few of us around the same age. I'll be 37 in a couple of months. We did BD that night, but only because the doctor said to. I would have been happy laying on the couch.

We still haven't told anyone about being pregnant, besides my best friend. We'll probably wait until I'm about 14-15 weeks like last time. Provided I don't blow up like a balloon with all the food I'm eating to help the nausea LOL

I don't think you made the wrong choice. With my hubby's low counts I think they wanted all chances we could get.

Babydreams- that makes sense! I’m the one with the issues...my hubbys sperm count has been great for all 3 IUI’s.

Enigma8- you were asking me about my story. I’m 36 married April 2017. TTC since February 2017. We found out my husband has retrograde ejuculation July 2017. This is where the badder neck does not close all the way at ejaculation and most of his sperm goes in the bladder or the wrong place. They found a large polyp in my utertus and it was where the baby typically implants. I had polypectomy surgery September 2017 to have it removed. So we started IUI’s to get sperm where it needs to go. IUI #1 was 11/30 I got pregnant but hcg was 23.5 it doubled every few days for two weeks then I MC or had a chemical pregnancy 12/29 at 6weeks. IUI #2 in February didn’t get pregnant. IUI #3 on 3/5 we got pregnant hcg was 152 on Monday.

Babydreams- I looked up Circle & Bloom. It appears to be a fertility meditation program to help people relax, relieve stress and be more positive thinking for TTC. Waiting to hear great news about your US Friday. I’m sorry your having nausea but I’m thinking that’s a good sign and won’t last too long for you. This will be my first baby I’m nervous about what’s to come next. How far along did you start having nausea?

Karo- doing good. What’s new with you?

My beta hcg level was 152 Monday and it’s 434 today. I’m very hopeful

Wow! You had great follicles! With your numbers so high did they say you may have multiples?

Prayingforourredhead, I wish he had normal counts but it got the job done :) how are you feeling?

Lyn, sounds like that could work for some people that need to relax since you can't take too many meds when ttc. I'm nervous for the us on Friday. We also had 3 mature follicles! My hcg levels were so low that I doubt it could be multiples, which is totally ok with me haha Although I've seen people with low levels still have twins. My nausea kicked in around 5.5 weeks. The only the long that helps is eating. I'm hoping I don't gain a bunch.
