TTC after 35

Meds here I come...

Well we are a go for IUI with injectibles next cycle. I spoke to the nurse from the RE's office this morning and she has already ordered my meds. I haven't even o'd yet thismonth but I guess they don't think we have much of a chance even with my shiny, clean tubes.DH and I decided we are comfortable with a 20% chance of twins.

 I told DH last night about his morphology problem but I think I sugar coated it too much. He focused on the fact the count was great and glazed over about the rest. I'll have to clear things up tonight. 

So for those of you who have been through this, what are the side effects of the FSH injections?

  • Hi, Lebraly.

    I haven't been through this, but I just wanted to wish you and DH the best of luck.


  • Bloating, bloating and more bloating. I did the injections and got a BFP on our first IUI. I am STILL carrying around 10 lbs of fluid in my abdomen. Get your fat pants ready. I was a size 6, needed size 8 during the injections because they felt comfortable. Now size 8 are kind of tight. Arrggg. Oh well, I'll take every pound if it means a happy, healthy baby. I'll worry about fitting into my pants in 9 months. I was also weepy and scatter-brained for a few hours after injections. Good luck!

  • Good luck! And who knows? Maybe ordering your meds in advance is a bit like taking an umbrella - if you have them, maybe you won't need them! fingers crossed for you!

  • I definitely have BLOAT with injectables, but that is the extent of my side effects. ?I am afraid of getting psycho during IVF since there are a lot more drugs, but I did 150iu of Follistim with my IUIs and no big deal. ?Hopefully you will have a similar experience! ?Good luck to you!
