First and foremost, best of luck to everyone who is trying this month!

I'm just joining this August IUI train. This is try #4 for me (the 3rd with Femara and Ovidrel). After three tries, I needed to take the summer off... so I am coming back to trying after a little bit of a hiatus. I am rejuvenated, focused, and optimistic.

I had my IUI on August 22nd (so... today). My last ultrasound (8/19) had follicles at 18 and 16.5. The numbers of my washed sample were 22mil with 97% motility.

I'm sending good thoughts to everyone! Let's hope for some May babies!

Hi everyone! I was hoping to join for some support during the TWW. I've been TTC for a little over a year and I had my third IUI yesterday, using letrozole and follistim. Had 2 follicles around 19 when I triggered, and I've never had 2 follicles before! I'm hoping that means better chances that one will stick, but also nervous about the possibility of twins! If this one doesn't work we are moving on to IVF so I'm hoping this is it! It sounds like many of you are in the same spot (or a few days further along in the TWW) and I have FX for everyone!

Yay! From what I read, multiple follies totally increase your odds! Prayers for double pink lines in 2 weeks :)

I'm 11dpiui and testing Wednesday. I wish I would have found this thread earlier because the 2ww has made me nuts :/

Hi everyone!

This is my first time posting on here but would love to have some friends who are in the same boat as me! Forgive me, I don't know all of the acronyms but I'll do the best I can! This was my first cycle using Gonal F + Lupron + Ovidrel and I had an IUI August 18th (6 days ago). At my last ultrasound on the 16th, the on-call physician recommended I cancel this cycle and abstain from intercourse because I had 4 mature follicles and 2 that were right behind them. I refused to waste the whole cycle so we triggered the night of the 16th and planned to have intercourse the next day. Well, after spending the whole evening Googling the chances of ending up with triplets or quads and it seemed so low (although I know it still does happen). I called my dr on Monday morning and asked if it was my choice to go through with the IUI or if he was completely against it, too. He knew I was hoping for twins and that's why we went for Gonal F even though we only tried Clomid for 3 cycles. I reacted well to both meds but considering I am 35 and my husband is 38, I know time is ticking and it's only going to get harder from here. We got pregnant the first month we tried, exactly a year ago, but it ended in a miscarriage at 6 weeks. It took about 3 months for my cycle to get back to normal and then we tried again, with no success. Unexplained infertility... ain't that a b!tch. At least if there were a reason, is feel a little better!!!

So, here we are, 6DPO. I've also been using a progesterone cream since 3DPO. Loads of fun! Well, I pray this is the month for all of us!!!!!! Best of luck, ladies!

We are no longer in the running. AF arrived today and I could scream. But no... we'll remain calm, proceed to next cycle. This was #5 (total dr assisted IUI; doesn't include the amateur at-home tries!). Now, thru IUI #6 - we investigate more about what our insurance will cover and ask more questions about IVF. I'm trying hard not to be bitter this round, but it's tough. If you'd like to connect on Twitter, we're tweeting at @MrsAndMrsTTC.

I wish all you ladies the best of luck! *BabyDust*

Sorry to hear that, emilyjoan.

I totally get bitter... it can be very frustrating. Keep your heads up, and best of luck with the next round!

I hear you Tanoushka - when I started broaching 24 cycles TTC, I deactivated my FB because it was making me too upset. But since, I've been back on, hiked up my big girl panties, and am trying my best to be genuinely happy for everyone. That is HARD! Especially when no one know how hard this whole process is.

Welcome madhurib! I had the same thing happen to me. I had just ovulated before my IUI so here's hoping they caught us in time! I'm currently 7 DPIUI and just praying this cycle works.

Thank you mtnscrumble.

And then you have the random inquiries " when are you going to have a baby". I have been "working on it" for 3 years people. Get a clue! I don't need to write it down for the world to see (except here of course)... The whole thing is just frustrating. I am on my 6dpiui and I have a hard time to believe it worked....trying to read all the positive stories Out there...I just don't want to get disappointed again... :wink:
