  • Yep! Check out the two pretty ladies in my siggy.  :)  Although both happened on the third IUI. My kids are quirky like that.
    Nobody said life would be easy. Just that it would be worth it.

  • I got pg on my first IUI with DD. Second IUI two years later, BFN.

    Third IUI, very next cycle, BFP with twins. Yikes! I'm still wrapping my brain around it so  I haven't added a new ticker but I'm almost 10wks. (follistim every time)

  • I have DOR so my RE wanted to be aggressive.  I took Clomid twice last year and had really bad side effects from it.  I have about 5 mature follies and about 15-20 smaller ones.  I'm just excited about the IUI.  I really hope it works.

  • I just had my first IUI on 3-11-2011.  My DH and I have been trying for 4 years since we got married.  last year we tried Clomid under the direction of my OB.  I will never do that again it was terrible.  The side effects are horrible.  Went 3 rounds with that and I refused anymore.  My OB reffered me to my RE. Went threw bunch of tests and found out i have a scar in my cervic that is preventing anything from being able to get up there. So RE put me Straight on Follistim 100 iu for about 2 weeks, I started getting cysts but thank god they disolved on their own.  Then I had to take Follistim 150 iu and Ganirelix (pre-measured) together until I had 3 huge folicles and one small one.  On 3-10 I took my Ovidrel (also pre-measured) and the IUI procedure was 3-11.  Now the waiting game..aguhhh.  My only symptoms of anything so far are slight cramping, my breasts are sore, tired and slight nausea.  Have to wait until 3-25 for bld test.  Crossing my fingers.  Hope yours works.  Praying for you!

    I really hope that this works for you.  I'm just a few days behind you so hopefully we both get good news.
