Topic: Here we go!

Wow, this has been quite the journey! But I feel I am exactly where I am suppose to be in this process. I am just waiting for my dear friend AF to show which should be today to finally give this another go! I have selected a new donor, and I just feel like he is the guy! So happy about the way things are going just praying that my body cooperates! Thats it for now just wanted to start with my first post.

Re: Here we go!

AF started on Friday September 21. I will be starting 100mg of clomid on cycle day 3-7. I will have a mid cycle sono on October 2 @ 11:00 to see how the follies are doing!

Re: Here we go!

Mid cycle sono was horrible could not find the ovaries or follicles.  Lining was a nine.  RE did an abdominal sono and saw 16mm follie on right side and 13mm on the left.  She then sent me to have bloodwork.  I have not ovulated yet and my estrogen was a 279.  RE is thinking that follicles will continue to grow 1-2mm a day so I will trigger Thursday at 9:30 and have my IUI on Saturday at 9:30.  Trying to remain optimistic!

Re: Here we go!

So much for the plan. My body has its own plan! I got a big  smile this morning, so I called the RE and now we are not doing the trigger and will have IUI Friday 10/5 at 10:30!

Re: Here we go!

IUI was done at 10:30, I had ovulation cramping all night. The nurse said cervix was nice and open. So now 2WW!

Re: Here we go!

Just a little update during the 2ww.  I have been really positive and had a good feeling about having success since the IUI.  I have had a few symptoms like sensitive boobs, a headache that won't go away, bloating, and twinges.  Maybe it is my head playing tricks on me I don't know. I guess we will find out soon! Like an idiot I tested on 9dpo and it was negative.  I think I am going to try to wait until 12 dpo before I test again. Seeing that BFN hurt more than I thought it would. I keep trying to remind myself, "You are pregnant until proven otherwise"

Re: Here we go!

Friday, October 19 AF shows her ugly face! On to 2nd IUI!

Re: Here we go!

Cycle 2 mid cycle sono shows 16mm on the right and 2 14mm on the left.  I trigger tomorrow night and iui will be thursday.

Re: Here we go!

Re: Here we go!

Re: Here we go!

IUI was done at 10 am 36 hours past trigger now in the 2ww!

Re: Here we go!

I love your train! Keep us posted. smile

Re: Here we go!

So RE also prescribed progestrerone suppositories.  I started taking them the morning after IUI. The first couple of days were fine. But now it is gross and messy.  I googled it and it is normal but yuck it leaks, and little chunks of the gel have been coming out the last two days.  They say it is ok and the your body absorbs the progesterone that it needs but yuck! I hope this leads to a BFP, or else I am gonna be mad!

Re: Here we go!

BFN. Unsure of if/when trying again.

Re: Here we go!

So here I go again... Cycle day 1 was march 13 we are doing:
femara 3-7 5mg
gonal f 150 3-5
with a mid cycle sono Sunday march 23 to see how they are cooking!

Re: Here we go!

Tomorrow 3/23 will be first sono to see how the eggs are cooking! Please God be looking good and ready to pop!

Re: Here we go!

Mid cycle sono shows 2 follies on the right 7mm  sad and after much searching 1 on left 14mm.  E2 was only at a 62. Gonal f 150 tonight and tomorrow second sono Tuesday @ 11:45.

Re: Here we go!

Second sono right ovary still had 2 small follies not even in the running. Left ovary was in hiding again had to do above sono to find one lead follie @ 20. I cancelled iui due to the poor response sad  want at least 2-3 follies for the best chance for a BFP.

Re: Here we go!

Another cycle medicated iui with femara, gonal f. Ovaries were easily found usually the left side can't be seen. Feeling optimistic!
