April IUI

Re: April IUI

  • @Imajin99 I don't know the sensitivity of the clear blue but have always used frer. At 12dpiui it was barely positive so if you implanted late it could have been too soon to pick it up. Good luck! 
  • Was away for a few days, getting caught up now that not only on TB on phone... (Am not a TB on phone fan.)

    @kristimh80 @Heidiisboss - welcome!

    @Bababatty - welcome to you too! I am so happy to see you here - I feel like we go way back! ;)

    @morgan&;paul2010 - I'm sorry. :( Sending big hugs your way.

    @lmajin99 - :( FX it is just too early!

    @daisy222-2 - ugh, I am sorry about the CP, but also really hopeful for you - like you said, after years and years of negatives, this means: "that my eggs and my husbands sperm can in fact make an embryo". I'm unexplained too, so that's a huge question for me - like, is it that my H's sperm can't even get into my eggs, or that the cells can't replicate together, or that...? Any signs of progress, at least for me, are good signs. I hope that is your first of several BFPs, and that the next one sticks! Good luck to you!

    @rayoflight80 - yes to mood swings. But for me it's hard to tell what of the mood swings are the hormones and what is the depression/stress related to IF and our string of failures.

    For example, I've noticed sometimes I'm much clingier than usual with my husband. Usually, if I see him talking to an attractive female coworker or waitress, it's NBD. On my 2-3 clomid cycle, that kind of thing made me so upset - like, I get jealous and feel bad and insecure. But I never, ever felt like that when I wasn't on clomid. It was crazy - it's so out-of-character for me, that as soon as I felt it, I was like: "this must be the clomid", just observing the emotions like a zoologist: "the mating female exhibits territorial behavior". 

    But then the other day, I started crying - HARD - about something super minor. My H had made a mildly critical comment about my driving or something, and I was so so upset. I thought about it after and I realized that it was because the IF has taken such a toll on my self-esteem - just the actual work of getting up and trying again and again - that it's making it much harder for me to keep my cool in other situations. When I have healthy self-esteem, little comments and criticisms are like nothing, it's like: "You know, he's probably right, I probably should have signalled sooner", but when I'm down like I am these days, it's like: "THIS TOO?!"... My H is learning to give me a wide berth, and I am trying to take more time for self-care, just to keep something in my tank.

    @wabash15 & @lindyc13 - CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    Good luck to everyone who is waiting on BFPs!

  • congrats @wabash15 and @lindyc13 that's amazing news! I can't wait to hear about betas! 

    @daisy222-2 How frustrating! Did they say anything to you about the eggs growing fast or something before the IUI?  So they canceled the IVF and then converted to IUI? I remember you saying that but wasn't sure why.  Sorry for a million questions.  

    @lmajin99 Apparently the early HPTs detect a lower level of HCG and so there is a pretty big difference in brand. I'm not an HPT fan because I hate seeing the negative and would rather a blood test but I do think the early ones are more effective.  Especially as early as day 12. 

    As for me: I have 3 follies and IUI on Friday the 21st.  Beta on May 4th.  Another long cycle for me.  My OPK is still totally negative.  One of the follies was 17mm yesterday and the other two were 13 so that 17 might take over. Who knows. I trigger on Wednesday though.  I keep remembering that woman that had the quintuplets and has a reality show had 2 mature and 2 that were too small and ended up with 5.  HA!

    @lmajin99 I bet it's just too early. My SIL didn't get positives until she was 5 days late! 

    I had my follicle scan today. Only only mature follicle, what she called my dominant follicle. I had two other smaller ones on my left side, which she said probably won't mature. She didn't tell me the sizes (I should have asked). I am set up for my IUI on Friday afternoon.

  • @Irisheyes81 They cancelled the IVF b/c of just having 3 follies, but also b/c they were weirdly large for being so early in the cycle. Our nurse said these eggs were not likely to result in successful fertilization (via ICSI) because they were immature in age although mature in size. But they still suggested converting to IUI. We were confused by this at the time... if the eggs are not likely to fertilize, why should we do an IUI? And they gave some unsatisfactory answer like "well, they have a better chance of fertilizing inside your body". Hmmm. Honestly at the time I was so sad about the IVF being cancelled that I jumped at this option so as to not waste the cycle and to give myself some hope, but looking back it was probably dumb.  Good luck on Friday! FX for less than quintuplets ;)

  • Had baseline US and BW today. 25 AFC, so dr thinks 100mg clomid will work well. Started it today. next US is on the 24th. Then we figure out when to trigger- so I guess, technically, I am in the wrong "month" now? Sorry!!
    kristimh80
  • Hey all, just an update that while I was going to start this cycle after a month off, my DH and I are going to take a few months off  because our schedules are not lining up to be home enough weeks in the month to make all the necessary appts. We also decided that the stress of planning around all of my work travel wouldn't help matters any. So thanks for putting me on the list, but I'll check back in when we officially start IUI again! For now, it's fun intercourse, timed intercourse with OPKs and hopefully no stress!

    sad about this and want to get going again  but don't want it to be a bad experience. I'll take a month off of travel in august and try then. Who knows, maybe 2 years of trying will trigger a new mindset about it for us? Ha! Yeah right

  • @kristimh80 and @J1006 I'm so excited to have TWO cycle buddies this month.  Everything good happens in threes! I just made that up but good luck you guys.  I trigger tonight. 

    @daisy222-2 that is so weird the follicles grew so quickly. Are they going to modify something for the IVF? Do you pay out of pocket for the IUI? I pay like $450 per IUI so I would have been so mad if they said that to me!! What an emotional roller coaster for you guys this past month!

    @bpietronicco I have a cold right now and have for the past week.  Do you think colds effect IUI? My acupuncture lady didn't seem concerned. I didn't say anything to the RE

    We pay $650 per IUI and the insurance possibly stops covering their 50% after 3, so we could get a bill for another $650 for this last dumb round :(  But yes, they are making changes for next IVF due to the whole ordeal! Adding lupron in with the stims, which is supposed to make follies grow go more slow and steady. I am currently happy w/ my clinic despite it all because the weird bleeding I've been having post-CP counts as my period because my hcg is back to zero(ish), and so we can start the IVF try 2 straight away! (well, 2 weeks on the pill first). I was worried they would make me wait a month to get things back to normal after the CP. Also my nurse feels bad about the whole ordeal and gave me free cetrotide and lupron today, enough for the whole cycle :)  Do I remember right that you are also in CO? you don't happen to go to CCRM, do you?

  • @Irisheyes81They say follicles grow at least 1-2mm a day, so I bet you get moer than 1!  :) If my 2nd follicle check is good tomorrow, then I'll trigger around 8am tomorrow and IUI Saturday morning. We will see! My stomach hurts now when I bend over...so ready to be off meds!

    I've also had a cold since the weekend myself @bpietronicco. I'm never sick, so hoping maybe its a good sign some way. Best of luck on your follie check tomorrow!!

  • @Imajin99 so sorry! Hugs!! @Irisheyes81 RE doesn't seem concerned- the nurse told me to let her know if I ever had a fever over 100 and told me what I could take for it!

  • @lmajin99 hugs. Sorry to hear that. Fx for the next steps. 

    @bpietronicco good to know! How are you feeling today? My cough is still lingering. I hope it doesn't flair up during the procedure. 

    @daisy222-2 I don't go to CCRM. I know they are the best and conceptions too but I just can't bring myself to spend the kind of money they charge. They have three marketing people on staff. I struggled because their live birth rate is inanely high. Like the best in the country. However, my friend had a bad experience before getting to IVF and said they push to the more expensive. Who knows if that's true and I might be knocking on their door after this weeks frustrations with my RE. Do you go there? If so, you are at the same place as Gulianna Ransic :) Sounds like you have a regimen and get to move forward. I wouldn't call the CP month a total loss. You know everything is working now! 

    @kristimh80 good luck today!!! I hope you get to trigger and have IUI tomorrow. I'm totally stressed because I barely had any ovulation cramps. Last month was unbearable and this time was barely twinges. Granted, last time failed. I really hope the trigger worked. 

    @J1006 thinking of you! Fx fx fx for today.

    Don't stress too much @Irisheyes81. Last month I don't remember feeling anything after my trigger. I swear our body plays tricks on us!

  • 5dpiui today...

    Best of luck to my Bump BFF @Irisheyes81 on her IUI!!  

    @kristimh80 Good luck! That is very exciting!

    @Ilky Welcome! Wow! 4 @20mm. You are stocked up! Do you know if there are two in each ovary? You muct be getting uncomfortable. I had a 24.5 and 28.5 in one ovary and it did not feel good until I ovulated. So much pressure. I am very excited for you!

    @Imajin99 So very sorry. I know how devastating that is! Be good to yourself and plan a special treat. 

    @rayoflight80 Thinking of you. What day are you on?

    Thank you @funkykey, @JaeJayStark and @Irisheyes81! I'm excited and nervous at the same time. 

    @JaeJayStark - One on left side and 3 on the right side. My first time I had one big one on one side and one medium size on the other. It hurt when I ovulated and after. So, trying to brace myself for the ovulation pain. I just pray time has come! 

    Good luck ladies!
