Re: ~*~ IUI Check In ~*~

  • Happy New Year Ladies!!

    Again (this is my weekly apology) sorry for slacking with this! Same excuses as always but this past week this website takes FOREVER to load for me and I just couldn't spend the time waiting for it. If anyone thinks they could be better about regularly posting this on Fridays than  definitely speak up. If not I will continue to try my best to get it posted on Fridays!

    Update: I went in for my beta this morning. Last week they tested my progesterone and put me on supps so where as usually I would end up with AF before beta I have absolutely no clue this time because the supps will keep her away. :( On top of that I made my way through the snow this morning to get my bloodwork done and because of the snow the courier cannot pick up there today to bring it to the lab so I will have to wait until tomorrow for results. So I probably won't find out until late afternoon. So stressful.

    QOTW: I really have been keepin focused on working out and losing weight. I figure that if I'm not pregnant at least I can keep focused on something I have control over and makes me feel good.

  • Could I join?  Today is CD2 for me, tomorrow morning I go in for baseline u/s & bw.  We are going to be doing our first Femara cycle this time, but it will be our third IUI TTC#2.

     QOTW:  I have been working out regularly.  I hope to lose some weight, but even if I don't lose a bunch of weight I just want to be healthier in general.

  • Do you mind if I join? I am usually on the IVF Group as we skipped IUI's initially and went straight to IVF due to MFI. However we are taking a step back now and trying to save money - and we are going to give some IUI's a shot! 

    Doing our first IUI this cycle. Did Clomid 50 mg on CD's 3-7.It's CD 10 today...1st follie check on Friday. I feel like I have lots to learn about the process and hope you ladies are willing to help guide me!

  • Iced- I think you're doing great.  My guess is that we're all cool with whenever you get around to posting :) 

    Not much an update, 8dpiui on unmedicated IUI#2.  Went in for my progesterone check yesterday, lining looks good.  I did find out that I was reading MH's post wash numbers wrong, so the count was actually over 10 million motile sperm, which I was really thrilled about!  It wasn't as good as the first time, but much better than I thought it was the day of the IUI.  Not feeling as excited as the first time around, but I guess that's normal.  Good luck to my fellow 2wwers!

     QOTW:  I'd like to buy a house by the end of the year, we'll see what happens...


    TTC since 10/09 Dx: MFI

    IUI 1&2 (unmedicated)= BFN
    IUI 3 (100mg Clomid + Ovidrel) = BFP 2/14/11 missed m/c 3/18/11

    IUI 4 (100mg Clomid + Ovidrel) = BFP!!

  • I'm kind of in limbo, would it be ok if I re-joined for the time being?

    Update:  Dh and I had moved onto a IVF cycle starting back in late Nov, but during follie check #6 on Monday (yes, IVF cycle can be a long process), 3 of my 15 follies had minds of their own and quadrupled in size, which was very unexpected and not planned for...so I was given choices that needed to be decided that day, so I decided to convert IVF # 1 to LUCKY # 7 IUI.  I am 1dpiui today.  Beta is 1/25.

    QOTW: I would like to re-focus on my physical, mental and spiritual self.

    TTC #1 Since 11/08 - Dx: MFI & PCOS
    7 IUIs = All BFNs

  • Update:  yesterday was DIUI #2.  I'm not feeling so confident since I managed to O before the IUI.  Plus I only had one follie.  So, we'll wait our two weeks, but not so hopeful.  I'm going to call my RE and ask about moving on to injects for the next cycle. 

    QOTW:  I'd like to learn to cook more things.  I'm slowly growing my repertoire of dishes.

  • New to this board but would like to be added to this check in. I'm feeling discouraged when I see the number of people who have failed IUI's and have moved onto IVF because I don't think it is financially possible for us to do IVF.

    I had IUI #1 on Saturday. I am going to TRY not to test until my beta on the 22nd. I usually spot a few days before getting my period so I feel like if it is bad news, I'll know I'm not pregnant long before I go for the beta. Still trying to think POSITIVE and hope for the best.

  • Me, newbie, IUI #1 on 01/10/11, 2ww. Don't have confidence that this will work, but have to do this twice (ins reasons) to move onto IVF.

    My goal is to pay off our credit card debt. This way if I do stop working (if I ever get PG) and decide not to go back, then it won't hurt us too much financially.  


  • I get to start my CLomid tonight.  Hopefully I react as nicely as I did last cycle. 

    QOTW:  I want to sort out our debt and savings.   We were all set prior to TTC, but life and DH being laid off for a bit messed everything up again.  I want to pay off our CC and beef up our savings.

  • I had my lap/hyst on 12/30 and have my post-op appt. this Friday. We'll find out then if I'm going on Lupron or if I'll be cycling early February.

    QOTW: Other than IF related goals, do you have anything you would like to accomplish in 2011?

    I need to lose the weight I gained in 2010 and stop accusing my husband of putting my jeans in the dryer;)

  • Hello, I'm new to the group! I just had a very unexpected IUI on Sunday. Basically what happened is I went to another RE for a consultation on Thursday, 1/6. He examined me and said I was getting ready to ovulate and let's give an IUI a shot! I was thinking I'd have to go straight to IVF. I had my trigger shot a couple hours later. My husband has sertoli cell syndrome and we have to use donor sperm, so Thursday night we searched for, picked, and ordered the DS and shipped it overnight for Saturday delivery. On Saturday I went in for the IUI and the egg had not yet released so they told me to come back in on Sunday, and so now we're in the 2ww. Crazy. I don't have incredibly high hopes for this cycle but you never know!

    QOTW: We are working on paying down debt (lots of student loan debt). We were pretty hardcore about it last year then found out about our fertility issues. We stopped what we were doing and started putting all the extra cash towards an IF savings account. With the new year we decided that we could still go through this IF nightmare and still accomplish our goal of being debt free, although it may take a little longer than expected. But we're working on it!

  • IUI #3 was canceled and we're moving on to IVF


    Other than IF related goals, do you have anything you would like to accomplish in 2011?

    Probably but I can't think of them today.  These past few weeks have been consumed with work and IF. 


    TTC #1 Off of HBC December 09 Dx PCOS, no ovulation, HSG + SIS normal 9/4: 100 mg clomid + ovidrel trigger: BFN 10/15: Gonal-f (75 IU, 112.5 IU, 150 IU) + ovidrel trigger + IUI: BFN 11/15: Gonal-f (112.5 IU) + ovidrel trigger + IUI: BFN 12/17: Gonal-f (112.5 IU, 150 IU): cycle canceled due to no response IVF #1: 1/18 start BCP, 2/1 start Lupron, 2/10 start stimming, 2/20 ER, 2/15 ET, 3/6 beta 1: 216, 3/8 beta 2: 420 *saifw*

  • Update: I had my lap on Monday, with a 10cm ovarian cyst removed. No endo, though, which is good! Given the surgery, my RE is having me take the next cylcle off as well before IUI #3.

    QOTD: I will be finishing my master's in 2011 after working on it for a while! I would also like to start exercising more regularly this year.

    After 2 1/2 years TTC, 3 IUI's, endo, and a lap, a surprise BFP brought us Alexandra Marie!

  • Hi there. I must have missed last week's post. I looked for it, but I must not have gone back far enough.


     We're just waiting to see if we can cycle this month. AF is due Jan 18th. If the results of our blood work is in by then, we'll move ahead. If not, we're waiting till February.


    QOTW: I'd like to maintain a healthy lifestyle, both with eating and working out. I'd also like to finish paying off my debt, and I'm so close. Hopefully, I won't be sinking it all back into IF.


    Big hugs for all you ladies!

  • b/b IUI #1 was Jan 6th and 7th.  3 follies and good turnout from my hubby.  In my first 2ww and trying to be emotionally neutral.  Can't help but to notice every little twing and gurgle of my stomach.   Test on the 21st.  So many people know of my situation because of work and travel plans for the procedure (live in Louisiana, procedure in California).  Dreading having to face the masses if it's a BFN!

  • Update: 3rd IUI- BFN....we are taking a break until March 2011...a little sad... my mom is undergoing surgery in another state...life is so crazy right now....would be hard to keep up IF related appts.

    Other than IF related goals, do you have anything you would like to accomplish in 2011?

    Besides a BFP?? What else is there?

    CAREER: graduating with my Master's in May, new job less travel more $$

    FINANCIAL: Purchase a TH

    TRAVEL: European Trip in Spring, Family Wedding in Jamaica in Summer, Martha's Vineyard for our anniversary

    Attend 2 additional charity events and monthly cultural events...


    The key to life is to enjoy the journey IUI#1 & #3=BFN (2010) IUI #2=c/p (2010) IUI#4-BFP,but ruled ectopic(2011) IUI#5: Feb 2012 (clomid, bravelle & ovidrel)
  • I have been on a break from TTC for a few months now (well aggressively anyhow). Had some issues with aunt flo and found out I have a fibroid and cervical polyp. Was told that it is not affecting the fertility. SO, we're gonna try again in February! My OB's office now does IUI's in their office, which is wonderful because I wasn't too crazy about the specialists office I was going to before. 2011 is the year for us to get prego ladies! :)
