IUI today

I was feeling like no support this cycle my doctors really wanted the inject cycle. But I choose femara cycle and on Thursday had my mid cycle scan and had a 16mm follie on the right and a 22mm on the left. I surged yesterday on my own and will have my iui today.
I am so excited that I had a follie on each side since we started with this whole process each mid cycle check was either lots of tiny or really big on the left. So yay for right follie.
Fingers crossed this willl be a successful cycle :

Married 3 year started TTC journey November 2012

Me-

First IUI natural, extra bleeding after IUI blood work showed no ovulation, even with positive OPK no charting

Next IUI cycle cancelled due to pylop found surgery to remove

Second IUI cycle 50mg clomid BFN

Third IUI 50mg clomid, stair step with 100mg clomid BFN

Fourth IUI 150mg Clomid BFN

Fifth IUI 5mg Letrozole, BFP 14dpiui Beta 1 25 low progesterone put on crinone suppositories, second beta 48 CP

Next cycle cancelled for HSG test, both tubes open

Sixth IUI 5mg letrozole crinone suppositories starting 2dpiui BFN

Seventh IUI 5mg Letrozole, crinone suppositories starting 2dpiui, BFP 11dpiui beta one 27.8 progesterone 22, beta two drop, CP

RPL blood work 12/27, showed a balance translocation in chromosome 11;22 Meeting with GC 1/23/14, IVF seminar 1/23/14, RE consult for IVFw/PGD 2/5/13

Meeting with GC confirmed my fears I have pretty low chances of having a normal egg that would lead to a normal embryo. Prior to meeting with her I knew this wasn't something I would want to give to my child and at the meeting I was told that with PGD you cannot tell a difference between a totally normal embryo or a normal embryo with the same balance translocation. So IVFw/PGD is not for us.

Met with gyno to plan for induced lacation now that my SO will try and get pregnant. Also meeting up with a lactation consultant to form a plan soon. 


SO

Met with RE 2/5/14 to start process of IUI with SO. RE stated ovaries look polysistic, we did a trail round with OPK, got the smiley and confirmed with blood work she did O on her own. 

IUI #1 planned end of march non medicated cycle BFN

IUI #2 non medicated 



 

 

 

 

Re: IUI today

  • That is excellent news! Congratulations and good luck!!
    ****loss discussed*****

    We're queer. I'm 33 and don't have any fallopian tubes left. My love ("Manada" on the boards, 32) was diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve. We did Partner IVF (my eggs, her uterus). We lost our twins Tavin and Casey at 21 weeks gestation.

    Our TTC and Infertility history:
    with @Manada: IUI# 1-7 (December 2012- September 2013) all BFN. Tried natural, femara, clomid, puregon/follistim, clomid and menopur combo, both the ovidrel and HCG triggers.

    with me: blocked tube dx'd via HSG in December 2012; polyps dx'd via sonohysterogram in 12/2012 and removed via hysteroscopy in 1/2013; hydrosalpinx & ovarian cyst dx'd in 5/2013 via transvaginal ultrasound. Laparoscopy performed 6/2013 to deal with hydrosalpinx--dx of Stage IV Endo & bilateral salpinectomy during surgery. Repeat hysteroscopy 10/2013 with two polyps removed.

    Our IVFs:
    IVF November/December 2013:
    Cancelled IVF due to poor response

    IVF January/February 2014
    BCPs and lupron overlap
    Stimmed: 1/22-2/2: Bravelle and Menopur (dosage ranged from B300 and M150 to B375 and M150 to B300 and M225)
    2/4 retrieved 10 eggs. Endo was much worse than expected. Only 3 eggs fertilized; February 7 transferred two day 3 embryos, froze one. All great condition.
    HPT BFP on 2/13 evening (6dp3dt); Beta 1 (2/18 at 11dp3dt): 110; Beta 2 (2/20 at 13dp3dt): 175; Beta 3 (2/22 at 15dp3dt):  348; Beta 4 (2/26 at 19dp3dt): 2222; Beta 5 (2/28 at 21dp3dt): 4255
    1st ultrasound (3/6  6w 1d): TWINS!!!! Twin A measuring 6w1d with a heartbeat of 118bpm. Twin B measuring 6w0d with a heartbeat of 113bpm. 9 week ultrasound (3/26): We saw both move! Twin A measuring 8w6d with a heartbeat of 182 and Twin B measuring 8w5d with a heartbeat of 180.
    ***July 18, 2014 we lost our beautiful babies at 21 weeks gestation. They were born too early. Tavin Sara T. and Casey Elizabeth T. are beautiful and precious and we will love them and miss them forever.***
