IUI #1 is a go! — The Bump
Secondary IF

IUI #1 is a go!

I had my CD 12 appointment with the RE this morning.  The ultrasound showed that I have 4 follies (one at 19mm, one at 23mm, and two around 14 or 15mm).  I'm to take my trigger shot (ovidrel) this evening and the IUI is scheduled for Friday morning.  I know chances are still against us so I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but that's pretty impossible to do.  No real point to this post, I guess, other than to say I'm excited and nervous!  Any feedback or advice on how to get through the next 2 weeks is welcome.

TTC #2 since 1/2012

  • Good luck!

    Also, we might be cycle buddies as I have a monitoring appointment tomorrow and I'm hoping for a good response!

  • Good luck! Sounds like a good report. I always get my hopes up, even when I say I won't too. But I figure that the disappointment will be there whether my hopes were up or not, so it doesn't hurt to stay positive in the 2WW.

    I had day 3 monitoring for IUI #1 today and although had some cysts, my estrogen level was low enough that I was cleared to start clomid tonight.

  • Thanks everyone for the support.  I just gave myself the shot, which was a little surreal.  Even my husband said that seeing me do that made it somehow more real that this is what we are dealing with.  I know one shot is peanuts compared to what a lot of people go through, I'm not trying to compare, it's just a sign that clearly we need some assistance!  Which is ok.

    @tislay84 - good luck tomorrow!  I'd love for us to be cycle buddies.  I hope you have great numbers!

    @AlmostWright - that's a good way of thinking about it.  I might as well be excited while I can, right?  Having hope is why we're all willing to go through all of this crap.  And good luck to you this cycle.

    Thanks to everyone for the well wishes.  It means a lot to me, really.  I wish everyone the best of luck this cycle as well!
