    QOTW: I LOVE summer! My favorite things about summer: Happy Hour on the patio, BBQing on our patio, and summer concerts! My favorite event every summer is Jam in the Valley! It is a country music concert every year from Thursday - Sunday just outside Buffalo and you camp there and everything! My friends and I go every year, and it is a blast! It is always around 4th of July and they have the most awesome fireworks display! I can't wait to go this year!

    You can move me to IUI cycling.  My IUI #2 was cancelled due to no response.  I finish Provera on Saturday so hopefully next week IUI #2.2 cycle will start.

     

    QOTW:  We didn't really have a winter this year, I in the northern part of S. Texas, so it's already spring here.  Things are leafing out and blooming shorts and t-shirts has been part of my attire for a good part of this winter.  So I guess all I have to look forward to is hot weather....

    This is my favorite time of year, the garden is in the ground and my hummingbird/butterfly garden is growing getting ready for migration.

    Update: My HSG is tomorrow. Hopefully, I'll get the all clear from that and my RPL b/w and will be cycling again in a couple weeks. After being at this for so long, you'd think I'd be used to the wait. Yeh, not so much.

    QOTW: Summers in Louisiana are ridiculously hot/humid so I don't look forward to those at all. We're currently sitting at 75? which is just about perfect to me. I love just being outside on nice days, taking DH and the pups for a hike, laying out listening to the birdies, cruising down the river, whatever. Just give me some sun!

    I am on CD4 of IUI#4. Everything looked good at monitoring yesterday and my RE is bumping me up from one vial of Menopur to 1.5. I'm hoping that gives me the extra edge I need. We'll be moving on to IVF if this one doesn't work. I am happy to finally be coming up to a fork in the road. We started with IUIs nearly 6 months ago and I'm ready to move on. 

    QOTW - I love summer for the longer days, longer walks with my puppy dog, warm nights relaxing on the deck with friends and my nieces from MN coming to stay with us for entire month. Love those girls!

    I had IUI #3 on Monday so I am 2dpiui.  The RE called yesterday with my b/w results from Monday and said the procedure was perfectly timed.  This was a crazy cycle though with so many things going wrong so I am having a hard time being optimistic.  Now on progesterone supps and hating them already!

     Good luck to everyone this week!!

    I'm still suck in the back and forth with my beta levels.  They were dropping but today, they are up to 47.  I'm going in tomorrow for an u/s and the methotrexe shot.  Eventually we'll move into IUI #3 but I have no idea when that will be now. 

    I love the warm nights that come with summer.  There's nothing better than sitting outside on  one of those nights, hanging out with good friends.

    IUI 2.0 is underway. AF arrived about an hour ago & I've never been so happy to see her. Met with my RE last week and will be doing the same Clomid + ovidrel + B2B IUI. Fingers crossed! My favorite thing about summer is walking out my backdoor with a margarita and jumping in the pool. Can't wait for swimming weather!
    After 22 months TTC and the loss of our identical twins at 10w6d, we're excited about our rainbow baby!

    My favorite things of warm weather are enjoying my flowers (my tulips are already coming up and I live in Michigan).

    I had b2b IUIs last week--that's how I spent my spring break!  Hopefully it was worth it!!  I'm 8 dpiui and supposed to test on Tuesday, but may try on Sunday.

     Summer:  I love swimming outdoors.  Pool, lake, beach, whatever!

    No new updates from me. QOTW: I am a fall/winter girl. I don't like to freeze but would take it over sweating to death. There's really not much you can do in the deep south once the heat hits. The humidity gets awful and it's hard to breathe outside. That being said, I do enjoy going to my Mom's lakehouse and hanging out in the water or on the boat.

    Update on me: just finished my last day of Clomid last night and FINALLY got my trigger ordered. CVS/Caremark is a PITA, but the shot should be here tomorrow.

    Monitoring appointment on Saturday and I would assume IUI on Weds/Thurs/Friday of next week.

    What am I looking forward to about summer? Getting our brick patio and pergola finished and relaxing in my hammock under the pergola with a good book. 

    Six years of infertility and loss, four IUIs, one IVF and one very awesome little boy born via med-free birth 10.24.13.

    Hello everyone!

    Longtime knot/nest poster - and occasional bump poster.

    We are at the "waiting for the Fertility Dept coordinator at Kaiser to call us back" level to begin discussing IUI.

    DH has issues with sperm motility and his urologist suggested IUI for us to conceive our first child (we've been trying for more than a year on our own and only learned about this recently).

    It's nice to be here and I look forward to being in a supportive environment. Big Smile
