Re: January 2019 IUI

  • Thanks everyone but they finally called and said BFN 😢

    That was way easier to take compared to the first time. Boo

    @inthewoods23 sorry! AF just arrived early for me! Now we officially start our break and will pursue IVF in the near future. 
  • oh no sorry @inthewoods23 & @ispi ;Hope you have a restful weekend...  <3

    feeling twinges and minor cramping this week. No idea if my period is on the way or if I'm pregnant but will find out soon
  • @inthewoods23 and @ispi - I"m sorry. :(

    I test Monday.  I should be optimistic but it's hard. Already thinking about IVF after a break. 
  • @inthewoods23 and @ispi Sorry to hear!  :/
  • I'm so sorry @inthewoods23 and @ispi. This  whole processis so mentally exhausting. @31magnolia ; I hope it works for you this time.   @ispi I'm on a break as well.  We are hoping it somehow happens naturally on our break but if not then by June we'll move onto ivf. I've heard it happens for some people so you never know . 
     Congratulations @sarahtothea. I hope your numbers continue to double.

  • Well I just did the HPT (a cheap and a more expensive), they were both negative. I won't stop the progesterone suppositories until I get the official no after the blood test tomorrow, but I'm not expecting a different result. Like I said, we're going to take a break. This is emotionally draining and expensive. We'll circle back in 2-3 months and will talk about IVF. In the meantime I'm going to make some changes with eating and supplements and continue my acupuncture. Good Luck  all on your journey!
  • @31magnolia so sorry to hear! Take good care of yourself on your break

  • @inthewoods23 Looks like we will be February IUI buddies.  AF came today and it was the most painful 2 hours I've ever had.  Not sure if it was because of all the progesterone, but it was miserable. I guess I have to toughen up for a future labor. FX!

    @31magnolia @ispi - GL with the next steps!  I look forward to hearing how your next journey goes! 

    @sarahtothea so happy to see a graduate of this thread!  Congrats!
  • @clabaughk22 yes my AF was much heavier the first few days once stopping the progesterone which sucks. AF hasn't shown up for me yet but I'm expecting it today or tomorrow.

    @31magnolia I’m sorry to hear! Well I went full ahead on “taking a break” and booked and all inclusive in Punta Cana. No need to worry about Zika! Lol I’ll keep following to watch for the successes!

  • @christis8 any new updates on your BFP? 
  • @bmaty0214 nothing right now.  I have my first u/s Friday.  I'm just praying and hoping all looks well.

    bmaty0214
  • Keep us posted!  :)

    @nancinator you go in tomorrow for Beta? 


  • Thanks everyone. My SO and I had a heart to heart on next steps and what's meant for us. Let's say yesterday was a very emotional day. But I feel a little better today. I'll still be lurking and wishing everyone well. 

    @ispi - your post made me laugh. I'm looking at booking a vacation too. No worries about Zika! Yay! Lol.

    @bmaty0214 Wednesday early morning and will find out around lunchtime. Feeling soo antsy. :#  Anyways I booked a massage Wed afternoon for whatever outcome! If it turns out to be a BFN, I will start going to acupuncture 2x/wk and taking Chinese herbs. I had lunch today with a friend who is an acupuncturist and she's going to refer me to her friend who specializes in fertility. Do you have any Vday/Bday plans? 


  • @nancinator best of luck!!! Oh nice, I got myself a deep tissue prior to staring this cycle and did one round of acupuncture. Hope you enjoy it!!!! 

    No real plans on vday for my bday since it’s a weekday and everything is insane! But did have plans to celebrate my bday instead on Saturday with family. I had an emotional breakdown Saturday afternoon, so not quite certain if I’ll keep those plans. I may just cancel the festivities based on Friday’s outcome. 
  • @bmaty0214 Oh man... it's hard to keep it together! The cycle of hormones... the frequent visits... Hopefully this will be a great birthday present x and if not, keep forging ahead. 
    bmaty0214
  • @nancinator thank you! FX!

    Good luck to you tomorrow! Hope the call tomorrow afternoon is filled with good news! 
  • Sadly, the IUI didn't work... I can feel my period coming and the phone call confirmed a BFN. I had a saline sonogram around Thanksgiving and the doctor was unsure so now after 2 failed IUIs, I'm going in for a hysteroscopy next week. They will take a look inside and see what's going on!  
  • @nancinator I’m soooo sorry! Maybe it’s for this reason alone to check yourself and make sure you’re A-okay. Keep strong and let’s hope that #3 is it for you. 
  • @bmaty0214 Yes, it's good that I'm having a hysteroscopy and dig deeper into the possible issues. I'm glad I'm not going for another IUI this cycle - it would probably be a wasted effort! Let me know how it went for you & happy bday!
  • @nancinator Thank you my dear for remembering. Birthday was yesterday and very well spent with family. It was extra special given the fact that I just got the BFN call. Broke down in tears... cancelled tomorrow’s gathering so that I can sulk in bed. Have a follow up appt with RE next week for the “talk” as to whether or not to proceed. Also have a second opinion consultation with another RE next month. Keeping my options open. 

    Hope you all all had a beautiful Valentine’s Day! 
  • So I have to go back next Friday for another u/s. Dating shows I’m just past 5 weeks so it’s possibly too early to see heartbeat but they see sac.   “Cautious optimism” but we will know more next week. Sigh...  I just hate waiting. This whole process is such a mindF. She said if we don’t see heartbeat next week it’s likely not viable. There’s nothing I can do at this point to change whatever will happen. 

  • @bmaty0214 oh no *Hugs* so sorry. Wish our bodies would let us know what’s wrong instead of it being this huge mystery. Have a glass of wine or 5 this weekend x  

    @christis8 omg that is so exciting! I can imagine this is even more stressful than the TTW in some ways but yay that there is a sac! FX for a heartbeat 💗 
    bmaty0214
  • @christis8 FX for next Friday! 
    @nancinator without a doubt, maybe a bottle or two...lol. Looking forward to a long run tomorrow to feel somewhat normal again.
