DLT, Oh I am SO sorry. It's terribly hard esp. at this point to get af/bfn and I send you countless
for your week.
Just not fair.
Kim, Yes to a blood test even though you don't think your timing last month was good. How did you and your doc decide last month was a false pos? Did you use a digital opk? And when did you get your "surge"? When you had your IUI, did the nurse say your cervix looked ready to O, os open, cm, etc.?
Sorry for all the ques. I'm just trying to decide how to feel about this month!
Biomama, Excellent for confirmed timing (a golden thing I think, having had none), great s. count and two follies! My nurse got back to me about the uterus sperm life issue too and said what yours did, but added that they're not as fast/strong after 12 hours. I also didn't realize that it's much better to O w/in a 6 hr. window of the IUI due to the chance of an ectopic w/ all these fast swimmers hanging in the uterus. Crud. Dh had a lot of fast ones and I was def. outside that 6 hr. window. What can we do? We are all such brave souls over here. As far as the egg, so that means it could last 8 hrs min, 36 hrs. max?
Leah, That was great to see the "live" O! Wow! A whole new level to add to my visualizations! LOL
Moi? I'm having lots of progesterone supp. symptoms, tired, bloated, big bbs, a little nauseous. Good times. Hoping and praying. I go in Wed. for the P level test and also to assess what these 3 clomid cycles have done with the RE. I've had a P level test on prog. before and it doesn't always make the blood test super high. The highest I ever had was after taking 100 mg of Clomid and then 200 mg of prog. That gave me a 14, which is passing but not conflated from the drugs.
