Hey gals. I feel like its been forever since I logged on. Its been crazy around here. As you know we lost the dog a few weeks ago. Last week we finally had enough of the quiet and adopted a new dog from the Humane Society. she's so cute! its bittersweet Rogue is great but sometimes makes miss my Brodie even more. On top of that ive finally kicked in to gear with my job. (everything went better than expected, the boss came in mid morning and sat down with me & the guy I replaced. He explained the hows and whys of everything to the guy including why he had me tell him. I was right he just need me to get the conversation started because they are friends. The guy was better than expected and has even been a huge help. They are going to try him in another position.
I've been trying to check in here and there, sorry for anything i may have missed. First off congrats to all BFPs and hugs to those who need them. So this cycle I was benched because we tried 3 cycles of clomid and still no baby. RE wants us to do clomid and clomid injectables my next cycle, since clomid was starting to show improvement. He left the choice of TI or IUI up to us. We have decided IUI. I been wrestling with coming to terms with it for weeks. I agree with my husband that if we are doing all this we might as well increase our chances by doing iui. However it's been hard coming to terms with conceiving this way. No body dreams of this you know. We never plan on IF either but a small part of me hoped we could still concieve "the old fashioned way" with the help of meds. Bummer, but DH is right. I know it must be done and so i am pushing myself forward. So now my question is (after all that long rambling), what do I expect from the IUI process. Is it painful? Uncomfortable? Any difference during the 2WW as opposed to TI? i dont want to think it worked if its a typical symptom. I am nervous and excited. What are some tips for getting ready? Anything experiences you want to share would be appreciated. Thanks in advance! (Sorry for being long winded! Lol)
