TTC after 35

IUI tomorrow!

My first IUI is tomorrow! I'm super excited and nervous all at the same time. I'm trying to prepare myself for the worst if this doesn't work. It seems most people don't have a lot of success the first shot it seems. I'm trying to walk the fine line if staying positive and not getting my hopes too high. Ugh this is going to be the longest 2 weeks EVER!

Re: IUI tomorrow!

  • So exciting!  I hope it goes really well, and that the 2WW is better than you're anticipating.  FX this is it for you!

  • Good luck tomorrow and during the 2WW.  I think you have the right attitude in being cautiously optimistic.  And FWIW - there are a few ladies on these boards who have gotten pregnant on an IUI so don't rule it out.

  • Good luck!

    Can't help but research the procedure and read some people get trigger shots a few days prior to the IUI. Do they not do this the first time around?
  • Good luck, gal. I hope that the first time is successful for you!

    Good luck! The trigger shots depends on your doctor's approach. Some want you to ovulate naturally, mine prefers the control of the trigger so I had the trigger every time. I'm coming to understand this stuff is as much art as science.

  • CaraH - it's an art vs science, very interesting and true perspective i'm sure!  i have not been down any testing roads yet, still trying for natural. but i love how you phrased that.
    TTC#1 since Aug 2013, I'm 37, DH 41.  
    Maya Arvigo Abdominal massage (daily self care), plus TTC meditations.
    I'm very sensitive to diet (gluten, avoid processed foods) and environment. Have a history of inflammation and tendinitis before going off gluten in 2009.  
    July 2014 - RE Visit #1: Eggs look good, Endometrioma on R ovary, HSG showed blocked R tube close to ovary. DH SA normal 
    DX: Endometriosis probably the IF cause and gunking up tubes.  Since egg reserve is high, RE says I can wait a couple months and then get laproscopic surgery to remove endo & clear tube.  If that doesn't help then move to IVF. 
    Dec 2014 - Saw new RE - does not recommend surgery on tube as it isn't likely to help.  Doubts I have endometriosis.  My endometrioma shrunk to neglible size (yay!) 
    Seriously considering IVF in March/April
    12/17/14 - Natural BFP!
