TTC after 35

i think i'm out

Even though it's 4 days before AF is due, I've been feeling PMS-y, so I POAS this morning. BFN. Guess it could be wrong, but I'm just not feeling it.

If IUI#2 is indeed a fail, I may take Aug off.  After the rush to get all my testing done, then 2 cycles of IUI, I'm totally over doctors / meds / early morning appointments. Maybe we'll take a break cycle and try naturally, then get back on the horse in Sept. I think my RE will say to try a few more IUIs. I responded well, at least 3-4 follies each time. And I only had to take the Ovidrel shot the 1st time. But we're OOP for the rest of the year, so we have to make some financial decisions.

On top of that, I have a raging headache today. Just want to stay in bed in the AC all day, it's nasty and muggy here in NYC. What a yuckface day.

Going to see Cowboys and Aliens tonight. Maybe a Mr. Daniel Craig kickin' some alien butt will cheer me up. Bonus if he gets naked!


Me = 38, Husband = 31. TTC since 1/10. M/C at 8 wks 5/10. Started trying again 9/10. All tests normal: AMH/MIS, FSH, HSG, SA. Estradoil high. 6/20/11 - Clomid+Ovidrel+IUI#1=BFN. 7/17/11 - Clomid+IUI#2=BFN. 2 natural cycles = BFN. 10/6/11 - Clomid+Ovidrel+IUI#3=BFN. 10/31/11 - Clomid+Ovidrel+IUI#4 = BFN. 11/26/11 - Follistim+Ovidrel+IUI#5 = BFN.
