Thanks for all your reassurance it's much appreciated!

Faithrock- we've been ttc since April 2016, we just expected it would take a couple of months and we'd get pregnant no problem and be on our second pregnancy by now. It's a tough journey!
I tried to keep it a secret between me and DH for a long time, I only opened up about it recently even to my Mum. I didn't want people looking at me with that look of pity and giving pointless advice like 'Oh you're trying too hard' and 'It'll happen when you stop trying'!!!

Had my IUI today!!! Had some cramping before the IUI so I am thinking it was probably ovulation cramps. My Dr. said my husbands sperm after wash had good numbers but the Total Motile was an 8.41 which she would prefer to be above ten. She also said that with that number that she has seen some get pregnant with the number. Wasn't very reassuring! After IUI there was some leaking slightly tinted pink...I am hoping that is normal.

Soshy...Good luck tomorrow!!!

Faithrock... from what I understand your AMH only gets lower as we age and there isn't a reversal. But I could be misinformed.

Maybe...Regarding the trigger shot; my Doc said if I took it then I am ovulating. I just wished they ran a test of something to confirm. And I had my IUI done 36 hours after the trigger shot.

Noticed some ladies are having birthdays soon. Happy Birthday!!!

Karo thank you and good luck as well!!!
It truly warms my heart to see the support from everyone, I appreciate you beautiful ladies understanding this process as it has been very hard to share so I haven't. Can't wait to see this group turn into all BFP post.

Karo- I have read that slight pink discharge is normal as the catheter can scrape you and cause that.
The 2WW begins, hoping you get your BFP!

Thanks for the Brithday wishes too! :)

I agree that we do have a great bunch of ladies here, supportive and encouraging!!

Glad to hear that pink discharge is normal. Was a bit nervous about that. Just wish these next two weeks fly by but as we all know they always feel like they drag on....

Soshy...Great numbers!!!
Emcbee...Sorry. Big hugs. And wishing you the best with round three!

Good Morning Ladies,

Nothing really new to report except that over the weekend I experienced some cramping. Even though my Doctor said I can resume my normal activities I haven't and a bit scared to start back running. May be I will wait a few more days. I don't know. I have an acupuncturist appointment this afternoon so hopefully that will help relax the mind from the 2ww.

Prayingforourredhead....Sending you a bunch of baby dust!!!
