  • Hey ladies, like @wabash15, we also took the latter half of march off after our March 1 IUI (first full try) resulted in a BFN. 

    I wont go in for my baseline until April 15 or so, so looking at a late April IUI #2. Prob around April 27. 

    We're just going all-natur-ale this month while my month is busy with work travel which prevented us from trying again. 

    I love spring because I love seeing all the perennials come up and everything turn green like the beginning of a new cycle! And it's my birthday in may!

    IUI number: 1

    Date of planned IUI: April 9th-ish
    Test date: April 23rd-ish

    Favorite springtime activity: Getting outside and walking! 

    I'm feeling a bit nervous about this, we've moved on to donor sperm (we tried IVF in Jan/Feb) but I know this cycle will be way easier than IVF. (I'm not doing injections)

  • Please ignore my last post!  I went in for my baseline and I had about 6-8 cysts, so I'm currently doing 3 weeks of birth control pills.  I'm still hoping to have an April IUI but it won't be until the end, most likely.  Good luck everyone!

  • Hello April IUI ladies :)

    I just found out that my 1st IVF cycle is cancelled due to "overly rapid follicle development", and we are converting it to IUI. It will be my 4th. I am super bummed (we had been prepping for this cycle for 3 months, ughhh), but I guess this still gives us some hope this month. My IUI is actually the last day of March, but I would rather start w/ a new-ish board and get to you know a bit, so here I am.

    IUI number: #4
    Date of planned IUI: Friday 3/31
    Test date: test at home 4/14

    Favorite springtime activity: gardening! and walking around our neighborhood looking at everyone else's more beautiful gardens ;)

    Me: 34 ("unexplained IF"), DH: 40 (he is fine!), Married since 2013, 2 cats :)

    TTC since Aug 2014

    May 2016: laproscopy, found & removed moderate (stage III) endo (largest growth was on R ovary)

    Summer/Fall 2016: 3x IUI w/ clomid & trigger shot, 3x BFN

    Jan 2017: 2 months of lupron depot to quiet endo (ugh). Done!

    March 2017: IVF #1 (antagonist) Cancelled/converted to IUI #4 on 3/31/17, CP :/

    May 2017: IVF #1, try 2 (Lupron added). ER 5/23 (14 retrieved, 11 mature, 10 fertilized, 3 blasts frozen, 2 PGS normal). FET in late July!

  • Had my cd12 ultrasound today- I have 4 follicles on my left and 3 or 4 on the right I can remember. I think I'll be doing my trigger tonight and then IUI on the first! I'll be waiting for my nurse to call for sure about the trigger but my biggest follicle was 17 and 21 I think that's okay?

  • wabash15 thanks!  It sucks, but I am feeling somewhat good about this IUI. I have been doing all this very expensive acupuncture 2x/week to get ready for the ER, so maybe it will do me some good w/ this :)    Do you know your IUI date yet?

    morgan&paul2010 those numbers sound good!  Good luck on Saturday!

    So I got more details from the nurse! I have 6 totally follies and ALLLLL of them are mature!  So they told us the risk of multiples but with trying almost 7 years we are willing to take those risks.
  • @daisy222-2 I have my follie scan today so if things go like they have in the past I'll trigger today and IUI on sunday

    @morgan&;paul2010 GL with your IUI. fx you don't end up with HOM but do get at least one.  DH and I have had a lot of discussions and we won't trigger with more than 4 mature follies, but we also already have twins from a previous IUI.

    Thanks! Totally understandable for sure. We only have 1 son thru adoption so I've never been pregnant. We have talked a lot about it abd with our faith we trust there is a purpose in all and it gives us hope that we have a greater chance for 1 healthy baby with that many follicles. 

    How ow did you scan go?!

  • I went in for my u/s this morning, 2 measuring at 16 on each side and 1 at 15. At the ultrasound they prescribed me with two additional days of Menopur and to come back on Wednesday.  Then at noon they called me back urgently and said the BW is showing a natural surge and I need to come back for my trigger shot (which I did at 3 pm today) and booked for IUI in 24 hours.  I voiced my concern about the the follicle size being too small and the assured me that since I have a natural surge my body is saying it will be time to release an egg and they shouldn't wait.  Anyone been a similar situation? Can a follicle at that size hold a viable egg?

  • @lmajin99 - those sizes sound fine to me. If your body is going to surge anyway, waiting to trigger won't make a difference- it's not like you can suppress it now. Good luck!
