6th cycle. I've been trying since June of last year. Only did 2 IUIs last year. This year  2 IUIs and 2 tries at home. 1 with frozen one with fresh at home. I've been checked out so I guess it has just been timing and not being able to try every month. But now with this donor being cheaper we can try more often. Doing just twice a year with frozen will take years lol @2HopefulMommies. And I'm 38 so I just need for this to happen and be over with.

@2HopefulMommies I'm trying next month. 5 vials of fresh shipped sperm this time. Last time I did 2. Our donor just has us pay for shipping which was 100 bucks for overnight. Now he's doing 5 vials at a time for 250 all together for the kit and sperm.

@2HopefulMommies yes we found one online. He has alot of success. With AI and shipping. We're doing shipping. I'm done spending all this money on frozen. My other kids came from fresh sperm. Thank you. I will keep you inform when we get out BFP and try again. Best wishes on your BFP I'm exciting for you guys!! And with known donor I can try every month if need be. With frozen I was only able to try twice a year with a RE so expensive.

@2HopefulMommies awww so excited for your news! And excited for your Wife to go to a Fertility doctor. Sending stucky baby dust your way. I just try so hard not to think about the TWW window. I keep busy by going out and enjoying time with my Wife and kids. Catching up on shows or books. Next time I try will be my 5th cycle. I started June of last year at the clinic had test run and everything is fine. Seems like timing was my issue. And I believe fresh sperm will be better for me since it lives longer. So I will be doing AI the next cycle that I try.

@2HopefulMommies hey hey I'm 8 days past trigger shot and 8 days DPIUI. I went in last Friday for a scan. I wasn't expecting to inseminate until maybe that  following Sunday or Monday. But at 10am my OPK was almost positive. By 12pm that same day it was super positive. 1pm was my scan and I had a mature egg on the right side size 22mm. A couple on the left biggest on the left was 15mm. So my doctor said we needed to insem that day! So she gave me the trigger at 1pm and came back at 4pm to inseminate. I tested the trigger shot out. It was out day 7. So I'm testing now everyday until we get a positive.

@yogibaby how are you doing and your pregnancy? Not to much longer for you. Excited to see which donor you conceived with.

24

(90 replies, posted in Trying to Conceive)

@2HopefulMommies I'm excited for you guys to find out answers! It could be absolutely nothing wrong. They say it can take up to 6 IUI to conceive. I've heard of it taking years for trying at home. We tried once at home and now the next couple of days will be my 3rd IUI. So fourth cycle. I got pregnant my first IUI at the fertility clinic unmedicated but I had a chemical pregnancy. So this is my first medicated cycle.

(90 replies, posted in Trying to Conceive)

@2HopefulMommies hmm definitely hoping it's implantation bleeding. And that's the joy of 2 moms both can try! And yes I would check out fertility clinics that's the route we've been taking.

26

(90 replies, posted in Trying to Conceive)

@2HopefulMommies when is her cycle supposed to start? Could be implantation bleeding! I'm hoping so. Has she been to a doctor to be checked out just to make sure things are good? I would go to a fertility doctor and go from there if you guys haven't already. That's what I did and I go to the fertility clinic for my IUI.

(90 replies, posted in Trying to Conceive)

@2HopefulMommies lol! Oh I understand the excitement trust me. Yes I'm so ready girl. My cycle was almost 2 weeks late this month! Which never happens. It's funny because I prayed and asked God to make sure the timing lines up perfectly so I can get pregnant and have our healthy baby our next try. Then my period didn't come lol. So I said hmm this will all work in my favor. So now this moves my cycle to the end of July instead of beginning and IUI probably like the 1st or 2nd of August. I'm doing medicated for the 1st time.

(90 replies, posted in Trying to Conceive)

@2HopefulMommies I was just coming on here to say almost time to test in a couple of days you beat me to it lol! I sure hope this is it and a baby will be on the way. I start testing around day 10 and continue until I get a positive. When will you guys test again?

(90 replies, posted in Trying to Conceive)

@2HopefulMommies she's lucky to not have side affects I heard they are horrible lol. So that's good!

44

(90 replies, posted in Trying to Conceive)

@2HopefulMommies I was just about to say wow that's early. Yes I've heard of it making the surge earlier or later than usual. This will be you guys time! Everything sounds so good. Glad she's feeling better.

(90 replies, posted in Trying to Conceive)

@2HopefulMommies hello there. How has your Wife been on the clomid?

46

(90 replies, posted in Trying to Conceive)

@2HopefulMommies that's understandable. My doctor told me don't count the day of spotting as day 1. The day of full flow is day 1. All these years I counted the day of spotting lil. TTC this way has taught me ALOT. I cant wait for the good news this time. I feel you next month will be the first time we did medicated so it is new. I'm scared to do the trigger shot at home though. I hear it's not bad though. Hopefully the timing is to where my doctor can give me the shot that will make me feel better lol.

47

(90 replies, posted in Trying to Conceive)

@2HopefulMommies yayy! Glad you guys got it! And my cycle is 27/28 days also. And right me and my Wife really don't care as long as the baby is healthy. I will check in to see how your Wife is feeling on the Clomid. Femara has way less side affects that's why I chose that one. I'm ecstatic for you guys

48

(90 replies, posted in Trying to Conceive)

@2HopefulMommies that would be amazing us pregnant at the same time and due a month apart. Some people do says 3-7 and some do days 5-9. My doctor has me doing days 3/7. Hopefully your Midwife is down for the cause lol. Yes 6 girls and 1 boy. Funny thing is I want another girl Haha ☺

49

(90 replies, posted in Trying to Conceive)

@2HopefulMommies sorry to hear that! Next month will be cycle 4 of trying for me. I got pregnant the first IUI ended in a chemical pregnancy. I don't have fertility issues it's all about timing plus I have 7 kids. So this time I will be using Femara. It's like clomid it helps with a stronger ovulation for women who ovulate on their own like me and your Wife. And helps women who dont ovulate at all to ovulate. So it boosts our chances. I'm doing the trigger shot also which makes you ovulate between 24 to 36 hours. When will you guys be trying again?
