CD 1

Well, ladies, I made it all the way to my beta day.  When I woke up this morning, I had a strange gassy feeling and knew that it was the beginning of AF.  Went to the bathroom and sure enough, here she was!  I am not too shocked...but I never really am anymore, you know?

Re: CD 1

  • I am so sorry, Jenmaz. I was set to post the exact same message this morning. It sucks.

    Back on the horse, right? This'll be OUR month. What's your plan for the next cycle?

  • Thanks, Coxity.  Definitely back on the horse.  Just got a text from DH that said, "Sorry, baby.  Stay positive!"  So cute and supportive. 

    To answer your question, I am going to try one more cycle on the same protocol I have been on--femara on CD3-7, trigger and IUI.  My Dr. also wants to do an endometrial biopsy this cycle on CD 24 or 25, to make sure everything looks good. 

    I have been taking prenatal vitamins, Vitamin E and B12 for a few months and will continue that.  I will also continue drinking raspberry leaf tea daily.  I plan to add in Vitamin B6 and I am going to try the pineapple core for 5 days following IUI.  I also plan to make it a point to drink a lot of water, get a lot of rest, and walk more as exercise.  Nothing too strenuous. 

    That's my plan....

  • Today is CD1 for me as well. We will all be positive cycle buddies an hopefully this is it!! I think I'm going to try the pineapple core as well. I'm debating on accupuncture. The ONLY thing I'm doing different with this pregnancy and last with the IUI and protocol is that I haven't been doing accupuncture...

     Good luck to you girls!

    IUI #5 50 mg clomid + ovidrel + IUI 10/15 = BFP

    Love him! What a good man you have.

     I'm starting my first cycle of Clomid on days 3-7 and continuing with Metformin. I've been on it two weeks now and I'm really hoping it sets us up for a good cycle. I'll follow your story closely and keep you in my thoughts. September is our month!
