BFN - strike 3 — The Bump
Trouble TTC

BFN - strike 3

I got the call this afternoon (my dr's office has you come in 14 days post IUI for a blood pregnancy test).... BFN.   I have of course been testing for the last 3 days nonetheless but still thought that there was a chance - that it was too early for the OTC tests to show a positive.

Definitely really upset since I thought maybe this time it worked - tmi but have had more discharge than usual.

Since this was strike 3 on the clomid + trigger and IUI, I am taking a month 'off' of meds/hormones (still trying on our own) and then next cycle we start IVF.  Definitely dreading it.  Going in next Tues for an exam and to get the full schedule and learn how to do all the injections, etc.

Really hoping this cycle we can miraculously get pregnant on our own so I can avoid the IVF.  I am going to continue with the acupuncture - maybe that will help after a few more treatments.  Any advice is greatly appreciated on how to stay sane as we move to this next phase.

Hope all you other ladies are getting better news this month.

Re: BFN - strike 3

  • I am very sorry for your BFN @Lady2010 ... Accupuncture can do wonders from what i hear, enjoy the time with DH and hopefully it happens naturally so you do not have to move forward with your IVF.

  • Thank you ladies.  I really appreciate all your kind thoughts.  

    It is incredibly frustrating, and I just had a bday this weekend - so of course you know what I was wishing for (if only it were so easy as making a wish on a candle!)

    And for some reason I really had high hopes this time.  I really thought it may have worked.  Will keep you posted on how things go - and if we can't work some magic on our own this cycle and have to start IVF - I will definitely have a lot of questions for those who have gone through it.

    Wishing you all good luck and sprinkling baby dust on your journeys!!!

  • Sorry about the BFN and moving on to IVF.  It is a little scary (esp if you've never done injects before) but it really is fairly simple - just a lot of nightly shots and morning daily appointments.  Come over to the IF board and read post to see what a lot of IVFers go through.  Read some blogs of the girls.  And keep taking it one day at a time.

    I have finally gotten somewhat ok with the ovidrel shot, so hopefully IVF won't be too bad (can't be any worse than the blood test yesterday when they missed the vein and dug around - nasty bruise now!)

    Wishing you all the best in your journeys!
