Hi everyone! I have been checked out for awhile (taking a break, on vacation, etc.), but am back in the game.
First of all, huge congratulations to Cananny!!! It is so exciting and gratifying to see those of us who have been trying for awhile get our BFPs. I am so thrilled for you and your DP, and excited about the good beta news.
I am a bit behind on reading this thread and keeping track of things, so I won't try to do other personals, but I am thinking of you all, and hoping for more BFPs soon.
AFM, we've had a lovely two months off the ttc train, and are now back on. We just came back from two weeks of glorious New England vacation (Providence! Provincetown! The ocean! The gays!), during which I started taking Femera for the first time. I had my cd10 ultrasound the other day, and there are two big follicles ready to go. I triggered last night, and will go in for my IUI tomorrow morning. I am a little disappointed that there aren't more follicles- I was making more on clomid. However, unlike my clomid cycles, my lining looks great, and I haven't had any of the horrible emotional side effects. This will be our fourth cycle overall, and our third one with drugs. If we don't get a BFP this time, our RE wants to move on to injectables or straight to IVF. Seems a little early for all that to me, so I'm not sure what we'll do. On the other hand, we have a cap on what our insurance will pay ($10,000 lifetime total for infertility), so I don't want to keep eating that up with failed IUI cycles, and then have less left for IVF if we end up there. Meh. I hate that insurance coverage governs the decisions we make about how to make our families.:/
But for now I will stay positive, and hope that this is our last cycle of trying! To that end, could I please be moved to waiting to know? (Technically I'm still waiting to O, but by the time I get back on here tomorrow we'll have inseminated, so let's keep it simple...)
Sending hugs and baby dust to everyone.
