Topic: 22weeks1day

This is from the anatomy scan last week. My previa has shifted to being a low lying placenta. Baby boy is in the 52nd percentile which is where my doctor wants him. He weighed a pound at 21 weeks 1 day. There is a concern with some clots they are watching(in my placenta) , but my doctor assures me there is a lot of reserve in the placenta. I am really glad my doctor and I decided to do the lovenox injections. I still won't start putting the nursery together until viability. My doctor told me my only job was to chill out. Another scan at 24 weeks.

Here is an awkward bathroom selfie. I have had a lot of weight gain but am resolved to eat healthy and keep up walking, yoga, and swimming over the summer. (School is almost out! )

@reednakita  You have to upload it to an image hosting site, like tinypic.com.  It will generate a link for you to post that shows the picture since you can't post an image directly to the forum.

Re: 22weeks1day

Hi! I was just wondering how your pregnancy is going? My DW and I (me carrying) are trying with the same donor! It will be our first month ttc. Gets delivered August 10, 2018 with Positive opk happening around 13th or 14th. What timing did you use? I see that you were able to get a BFP both times you tried to conceive (congratulations on your son) and sorry about your miss carriage ????. We are going to use soft cups with a small amount of pressed. Any advice on timing?? Thank you!

Re: 22weeks1day

Hi @shayna

We are doing great at 33 weeks tomorrow.
Only 4-5 weeks left. :-)
Baby is doing well. He’s been sitting in the 63rd percentile for the last two scans. He was 3.6 # at 30 weeks.  I will get another scan next week.

Timing depends on # of vials and type of vials and when you think ovulation happens relative to +opk.
Preseed is awesome! I used it both times.
After you finish inseminating keep yours or your wife’s hips up for at least an hour. Insert a soft cup before going about your day. Pull it out after 8 hours or so.
I put about 1ml of preseed before thawing the sperm.
If you are using one vial of ici I recommend maybe 6 hours and 18 hours post surge.
If you are doing an iui with washed sperm somewhere between 20-24 hours is what I would do.
If you have three go ahead and do the 12-24-36 hour timing it’s a good blanket timing.
I know if I try for a second I will probably just do 1-2 vials at a time.
This last cycle I did 12-24-33 hours with three vials.
The first cycle I did a vial 2hrs-6-14 hrs after + Opk. Good luck I hope you get your bfp! Baby dust!
