Thanks, Kate

btw: how do you get a signature to always be there? I filled in my stats, but it doesn't show up...
I'm no expert, but my RE initially told me to wait two weeks and two days before I took a test (so that's 16 DPIUI). Then after the second IUI she said to test 14 DPIUI. I am attempting to wait until 16 days just to be sure that I don't think AF is coming and that whatever the test comes back with is more accurate. Don't know if I was much help.....

I'm thinking about testing at 14 dpiui. AF sometimes plays games with me so I may wait until 15 dpiui to me sure... I figure AF should show by then if she's going to. It also depends on my will-power to resist the pee sticks--they start calling my name at about 13 dpo

WOW - I am EMOTIONAL today - there have been two different times when I have almost burst into tears over minor issues...

How is everyone else doing today?!

Lynne: sending you good vibes!!

Hi ladies!

I was convinced that AF was coming this last time. My symptoms were very AF like but when I went to the DR I was pregnant.

Is anyone on progesterone because this will add to AF like symptoms.
GL everyone

That will take some serious discipline! but I'll try - I have so long to go anyway... 4DPIUI
So far, no symptoms, just trying not to think about it. ha ha ha.
It WOULD be nice if the symptoms for preg and AF weren't so similar - I saw another post lamenting that we didn't just get eye spasms or that our earlobes turned purple.... ha ------ it is weird, cause I'm hoping for nausea - think that's the only unique one!

Well, tomorrow is test day. I am VERY nervous. I don't believe I am pregnant... just a gut feeling! I know that we are going to try to for two more months... just feel like that might not be enough. Then again I am not sure how you ever shut the door. This is the end for us and after these three attempts we are closing the door on trying. So, I am sure this all just has me a little overwhelmed!

Hope the rest of you are hanging in there. I know there are few of you out there who are getting ready to test as well. I wish you all luck!

Good luck Lynne with all the emotions - I totally understand how you feel about "knowing". This cycle is strange for me since I don't think I can trust that feeling with all the drugs going on - you're taking clomid? maybe they will try injectables next time - I've had a pretty easy time of it - and from what i gather, it's not as crazy making as the pills - but we're all diiferent! Tomorrow is only day 7 for me, so i have a while to go... I'll be thinking of you and looking to see how it all went... btw - I'm somewhat bloated and ugh, not sure if it's the prometrium, or the pizza...

I thought of you yesterday and this morning....I knew it was your test day today. Weird to think about some random stranger I don't know, but I was. I am so sorry. So very sorry. I know this is an emotional toll and to see that BFN hurts like a punch in the gut. What CD are you on then since you said that you're waiting for AF? Technically I'm on CD39 and still no AF.....I believe that the injectables have really messed with my cycle and that despite the fact that I haven't started doesn't mean I'll be seeing a BFP later this week.

Again, I'm sorry and wish you luck with what you decide to do in the future.

AFM: Scan today. Had ~5 follicles although 1 is probably over-mature (23-24 mm) and two may be under-mature (17-17.5 mm). IUIs tomorrow and wednesday. This many eggs is maybe playing russian roulette with the high order multiples thing, but after 6 IUI cycles, all but one with 2-3 eggs.... Anyway, wish me luck.

Yeah, I'm there as well. I know the risks and all, but...

Well, I resisted testing this morning. But now am obsessed with how massive/sensitive my boobs feel. Could be anything I suppose.... sigh. I'll probably test tomorrow... did we all move to the July group? or do we stay here?

Kate: any news from you?

Tomorrow is test date for me... but I'm thinking AF is on the way
post #78 of 81
Hi Kelly... I tested yesterday (SUN) BFN. I resisted today as I am visiting my Mom, and brought only one test... I think AF is on the way too Tomorrow is my official beta day, but I guess if I'm neg on an HPT, then, what's the point? I just called PFC to ask what happens now - when do I stop the prometrium? when can I start again?
Feeling pretty blue, but reading a good book for all IUIers - The Pharmacist Mate.
Going to play tennins today and go to the beach, but I'm a little worried that I am on my way to a mini break down. I felt so positive going into this, and I KNOW it's a long haul - and it's been even longer for many of you... just feeling so pointless not being pregnant.

fingers crossed for you Kelly!

Hi Kate: I'm sorry to read about your BFN. I read your email and that is exactly how I am feeling too. I was so positive but not I'm blue... blue--that's a good way to describe it.

No AF yet for me but my temp is down. Today is day 15. I got my beta yesterday but haven't called for the results because I assume it's negative.

Sunday night was a bad day for me because at that point I was fairly convinced it didn't work. I hope I'll bounce back from this soon to figure out how to proceed with this next cycle. I feel like such a failure.

Hang in there Kate, it's nice to know we're not in this alone.

Well, this morning was my official test day, and a BFN, followed directly by AF. weird! At least there's no waiting for that...feeling kind of numb, but my boyfriend is amazing and I have to be thankful.
I am angry at my body.
more later - then I guess we move over to July...
