Re: ****IUI CHECK-IN****

  • I am no longer in the 2ww -- moved on to IUI #2. Finish up my Femara tomorrow.

    QOTW: Someone has this quoted in their siggy, and I really like it:  "In the end, everything will be ok. If it's not ok, it's not the end."  (or something to that effect!)

    GL to everyone testing soon!

    QOTW:  Share your favorite quote/phrase/saying that helps you get through the lows of IF.

    I posted my favorite quote the other day in a post but here it is again :)

    "I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."
    ? Audrey Hepburn

    Just started Clomid yesterday for my first IUI cycle :)

    QOTW: I saw this one here I think, maybe in a TTGP post...

    Anyone can give up, its the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength. (author unknown)

  • I'm just waiting for my next cycle to start.  Praying that our 4th attempt will be successful.

    *Note:  Successful meaning my cycle doesn't get cancelled and I actually O and get to have an IUI.  A BFP would be a bonus!


    After more than 2 years of fertility treatments, FET did the trick!
    IVF March 2012 - BFP! - Severe OHSS = 8 days in the hospital in kidney failure
    No heartbeat at 10w6d
    FET August 27,2012 = BFP!

  • Hi Punky!  IUI#2 seems to be a bust.  I tested at 12dpiui yesterday and it was stark white.  We just moved to VA so I am in search of a new RE which will take a while having to go through all the hoops for a referral.  So we can be moved to trying on own.  We will start IUI#3 or a lap sometime in August hopefully.

    QOTW:  coloradoalyssa's is my favorite.  I don't really have one other than "a positive attitude might not solve all your problems but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort."

  • I guess the 2ww officially started today :) We ended up doing 5 days of Menopur (have always just done 3 days with IUI#1 + #2). I triggered on Monday night and did IUI's yesterday and today. I am scheduled for beta on 7/13.

    QOTD: Lately I have been referring to my uterus as "the palace of my child" (which is the name of an acupuncture point that I have had every week for the last 6 weeks). It makes me smile and is much better than what I used to call it (cold and hostile).

  • I am currently 12dpiui, and right now still getting a VERY faint positive from what I think is the trigger (I have been testing it out and it just never really went away).

     

    I don't know if this counts as a "quote," but it has certainly been something that has helped me in IF:

    "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6

  • You can add me to your list: mesila21.

    This is my very first IUI.  I am currently on my 2ww, 11dpiui...I have my beta scheduled for 7/5/11 (fingers crossed). 

     

    IUI#1: gonal f CD2-7, Ovidrel trigger CD8, IUI 6/19/11 (Father's Day).

  • Had my baseline on Monday and my cyst had shrank enough to start injects! So as soon as AF shows, I'll be shootin' up nightly CD2-?.

    QOTW: These are some of my favorites depending on my mood.

    Faith can move mountains, but don't be surprised if God hands you a shovel.

    If you can't find hope, look in a new direction.

    For nothing is impossible with God. Luke 1:37

    Let your tears come. Let them water your soul. ~Eileen Mayhew

  • Update: Well, our IUI is finally on the way! I refuse to call it IUI #4, because I got pregnant on our 3rd cycle (and it was our first MEDICATED cycle) and I think I need a clean slate- so I'm calling this IUI #1 ;) ;) Clomid starts today and I am HOPING that we'll be able to do the IUI next Friday bc the clinic is closed next weekend.  Keeping my fingers crossed, what else can I do??

    QOTW:  I really don't do inspirational quotes, but here's a funny one:

    ?Only caffeine and chocolate can rejuvenate the infertile soul.? :)

     And I've always liked Halle Berry's quote:

    ?Nature has got it all wrong: When you are younger, it should be harder to get pregnant, and as you get older it should be easier. When you are so ready, you can?t do it to save your life. And when you are 21, you are so not ready, but you are ripe as could be. The eggs should become more developed the older you get, not die slowly from the day you?re born. That?s one thing God got wrong.?

  • Well I just got my Clomid for my next IUI and have my u/s's scheduled, etc.  Having AF from hell this time around, I think my uterus is protesting all the poking & prodding, lol.  Start the Clomid on Saturday, yippee, NOT.  :)

     QOTW:  Share your favorite quote/phrase/saying that helps you get through the lows of IF.

    I like the quote:

  • Thanks again Punky for doing this!

    No real update from me - still on birth control for the cysts.  I am excited that next week at this time I'll know if the cysts are gone and what our plans are for the next step. 

    QOTW:  I don't really keep track of quotes - although I always love when SAIFers say "it was worth the wait" - that keeps me motivated.

    Anyways, my favorite quote is Jeremiah 29:11 - "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

  • Still in the 2ww here, currently 12dpiui. Beta is this Friday! I could use some good vibes if anyone has any to spare.

    QOTW: I have a couple that get me through.

    You never know how strong you are, until being strong is the only choice you have.

    When you get to the end of your rope... Tie a knot and hang on.

    When the world says "Give up," Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."

  • Hey ladies! I hope everyone is having a great day. Punky, thanks so much for keeping the check-in running. ;-0)

    I'm 11dpiui and just waiting to see how it all plays out. I got a very, very faint positive yesterday and I'm trying to keep it my emotions in check because I'm not sure if it's true, or if it's an evap line, or even the trigger. I didn't tell DH because with the convos we've had lately, it it's a BFN I have a feeling he'd take it a lot worse than I will. I guess we'll know for sure in a few days.

    QOTW: I don't have any inspirational quotes, but I like what everyone's shared so far.

    Good luck to everyone and hugs to those that need one!

    After 22 cycles and 4 failed IUIs, Serafina joined our family through IVF/ICSI, born 8.28.12
    Our surprise baby, Juliette, is due 12.8.14!

  • Please add me.

    This is my first IUI cycle, today is CD 5 and I am starting Clomid tonight.  As one of our issues is MFI, the RE didn't give us great chances of success here but he wanted me to do the Clomid challenge test, so we are proceeding with the IUI anyway.  I won't know the exact dates for a little bit - but looks like I'll trigger a week from tomorrow.  If it's a bust, we'll likely move to IVF in August.   

    This is IUI number one... would love for it to be an only but have a feeling it won't end there. 

    Unsure when beta will take place but approximately July 24.  I plan to POAS before so as not to go into it unto it unprepared.

  • Hi ladies!

    We're back on the IUI train and our monitoring apt is tomorrow 6/30. I took Femara from cd 5-9 (stupid story about starting late). IUI #2 (if I haven't already o'd on my own) should be like Saturday.

    QOTW: Dum Spiro Spero -  Latin for, As I breathe, I hope.

    I love this quote and it's going to be my second tattoo.

  • Dah!  I'm so late to the game because today has been soooooooooo busy!  Waiting for AF so I can start IUI #2!  (that's not really an update)... buuuuuuuuuuuut... the nurse called today to let me know that I'm going to have estradiol patches up to trigger day and progesterone support in the 2ww this time around!  I'm so excited!

    QOTW: "You are X days pregnant"... I tend to repeat this a lot to myself during AF... especially CD1... cuz just because the last cycle failed... doesn't mean this cycle won't!  It's kind of silly but it has kept me from crying at work on more than one occasion

  • I'm officially in the 2ww of IUI #2; 1 day down, 11 to go (I have a 12 day LP).

    This IUI is not too promising since my CD 12 ultrasound on Saturday only showed one 14.5 follicle on my right side. We waited until Tuesday, cd 15, to do the IUI in the hopes that it would be mature enough for fertlization by that point, but who knows. We didn't want to do another ultrasound since we're completely OOP, so I'm not really holding out too much hope for a BFP.

    The saying that has been keeping me going is "Keep Calm and Never Lose Hope", but I also like "The night is always darkest before the dawn" when I'm in my darkest IF days. I also really liked ColoradoAlyssa's Audrey Hepburn quote.
