IUI #6 = BFN (stupid AF!) — The Bump
Secondary IF

IUI #6 = BFN (stupid AF!)

I didn't make it to Thursday to test.  AF showed up today.  I can't really say that I'm surprised.  Despite all my attempts to remain positive each and every cycle, I've come to expect disappointment.

We have to take a break cycle before starting our next IVF attempt.  The nurse from my RE's office called to give me the new protocol last week but I didn't write it all down.  I know they want me to start something on day 21 of my next cycle, and she said my period should start within a few days of that, at which point I'll go in for baseline testing.  I'll start Chlomid on day 5 and then I think she said I'd start Follistim and Ganorelix on day 8 or 9.

This really blows. 

DD conceived naturally in 2009.  TTC #2 since August 2010.  Praying for guidance as we decide what's next.

When the world says, "Give up,"

Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."

  • So sorry to hear!  I think we can all relate to the disappointment, but it never makes it any easier.  Hope you have better luck with your next attempt and have some happy news soon!
