July IUIs - Page 8

post #141 of 281
Congratulations Kiki! That is great news!

::::

Here's to hoping your luck rubs off on me! Tomorrow is the u/s then on to IUI. I picked up the Ovidrel on Saturday. It's now sitting in my fridge and I'm going to really really hope I don't forget to bring it with me.

And again! Congrats!

kiki!!!!! yay!!! I'm so happy for you and your DH, that's so cute how you told him. : That's so fantastic!

Kim, I'm so sorry. When it rains, it pours. I'm glad you are getting kidzilla back. You know that is the cutest thing that you call him that. I always get a kick out of it.

Leah, sorry about your sunburn... and about MDC eating your post. Sometimes if my post doesn't go through I can click "back" and it's still there. I know it's too late now, but next time?

Angi, good luck! I hope it's the only IUI you will ever need! (unless you want more kids, of course).

as for me, my temp today seemed to be cooperating more. I talked to DH about that book I was reading, and he helped put my mind at ease. I trust my RE too. And clomid does seem to be helping me, at least in terms of how many mature follicles I have. Now let's see if it actually helps me get pg. Oh, and I read online that clomid is used in normally ovulating women to increase their LP, which could be useful for me, since mine is usually 11 days. I'll let you guys know what happens at the RESOLVE meeting tonight.

and one more big congratulations to kiki!

EastbayK - sorry to hear your run of bad news. I hope that things start falling into place for you soon.

angi - GL for your IUI. Hope it goes well!

kiki - : congratulations!!! That's such exciting news and definitely gives me, and I'm sure others here, hope that it will happen. Here's hoping this month is full of BFP's!

biomama - I'm glad you're starting to feel a bit better about Clomid and see the positives in doing this. Keep you chin up, things will come right. :

my update - I had my first progesterone injection last night which was quite sore, but I'm just sitting here through the 2WW patiently waiting (ok, not sure how long the patience will last....)

Which Dollar Store?

I keep hearing about these amazingly inexpensive dollar store HPTs. Where do you get them? Which Dollar store? I went to the local Dollar General last night, and they had none! Zippo. But then again, they didn't have any bc either.

But there was a conditioning hair creme that my mother used to use back in the 70s. Go figure.

So is it Dollar tree? Family Dollar? 99 cent store?

Kim - so sorry and hugs!

Kiki - Way to go! Keep us posted!

Bio - I'm curious to how you found your RESOLVE meeting and is it free?

AAM - Just waiting and reading into every little sign I have. Peeing a lot, nauseous, and gassy. Hmmmmmm. Only 10 more days till my HCG test at the docs.

Angi - dollar tree is where we get them. But I've found you can get them even cheaper on ebay! I just bought 25 for 11 including shipping and supposively they pick up 10miU! So we'll see how they work.
post #150 of 281
Congrats to Kiki! It's so nice to come here and see good news.

We had IUI yesterday. They confirmed that I had one big follicle (19.5) on Monday. I got my surge Monday morning and I took the shot then. We were supposed to have the IUI on Monday but couldn't do it then. We did one IUI today and we will do one tomorrow and then I have to come back on Thurs for US to make sure I really did release an egg. DH came with me into the room for the IUI. He said he should be present at the conception of all our children. I thought that was cute.

That is so sweet that your DH wanted to be there. How wonderful for you Glad your first IUI went well.

corikodjo - I know, how hard it is to wait these 2 weeks out! Hope you find ways to entertain and distract yourself. Please share if you do find.

Can I just tell you guys how sweet you all are! I am SO GLAD I found this forum. I truly believe talking about all the rounds of drugs and shots and waiting with people who truly understood helped relax me enough to get me out of my head and...heehee..get pregnant. (I'm still in shock btw)

To answer your question blueyezz I've had 5 cycles of IUI's, 2 IUI's per cycle. 2 unmedicated, 2 clomid, and the last one (hopefully) was with injectables. 3 with the HCG trigger shot, and one with progesterone suppositories. Not a fun ride but I'm sure you all know that. We were one cycle away from IVF...it's amazing how things happen sometimes. (I'm sorry if that's more information that you bargained for)

Kim - I'm so sorry

Angi - GL with your IUI I hope it goes (or went if I'm on the wrong coast) well. Hopefully nothing like your caulking gun dream - which was hysterical btw.

DLT - good luck with your 2WW. I hope it goes quick and ends with great results!

biomama - that's what my RE told me about Clomid as well. My LP is only 11 days as well. The only reason clomid didn't work for me was because it made my lining waay too thin otherwise it did what it was supposed to by producing multiple follicles. I had 3 with the last round of Clomid I did as well. I'll be crossing my fingers for you that it does what it's supposed to. Have faith...

post #155 of 281
thanks Kiki. And I'm in the middle of the US (Texas) so the IUI will probably be on Thursday. Unless the pain I'm feeling in my side is mittleschmerz. Then it probably will be tomorrow (Wednesday)

And I'm also hoping for no caulking guns.

kiki99, you give us all hope! I couldn't be happier for you. Thanks for sharing your story, and I hope you have the most blissful pregnancy, peaceful birth, and wonder-filled journey into parenthood.

snowbell, your chart is awesome! That is a real thermal shift, my friend!

Angi, good luck! Keep us posted!

Ellien C, I hope you caught the egg! Very sweet about your DH. I totally get that. I was really bummed that DH missed one of our IUIs this cycle. Let us know how the U/S goes!

Kim, how are you holding up? How is your kidzilla?

Cori, as far as I know RESOLVE meetings are free, but I ended up not going to the RESOLVE meeting last night. A few things came up, including finding out my newly pg friend's fetus died. She is waiting for the m/c. It's pretty upsetting, and she is already baseline a bit depressed. She's the one I was about to tell about our IF struggles, but she told me that she was pg so I couldn't really say it after that. Now I don't know if the timing to tell her is worse or better. Obviously I'd wait a while anyway... she has to heal.

thanks guys for the comments about my chart. today it went down though...i guess it's normal to go up and down?? i had been awake in bed for a little bit before i remembered to take it though.

kiki, i am still so happy for you. are you going to post a picture of the BFP? what day did you test on?

angi, how did the u/s go? i'm eagerly waiting!

Kim, lots of hugs to you. how is kidzilla?

Eileen, that's great you get an u/s to see if you released the egg. my RE gave me the impression that it's not possible to see (or that it's really hard). i wish my clinic would do a post ovulation u/s.

biomama, i'm so sorry about your friend. have you told anyone about your fertility stuggles?

have any of you told people about IF struggles? i have been somewhat open about it. sometimes i'm glad i am and other times not so glad. one reason i'm glad i've been open is because whenever a friend or sibling gets pregnant (which is happening at a very fast rate) they are very respectful in telling me.

Step 1: Complete

Ok. First step is done. I had the transvaginal ultrasound today.
Everything is where is it supposed to be, and it's all there. That is good.
Anyway, the tech was wonderful. He had a sense of humor, too. When I apologized for the furry legs (I rarely shave), he said: "No problem. I didn't shave either". I think I'm in love.

Here are the results:

There are no polyps, blockages, or other abnormalities that he could see.

This month is the left ovary with a 21.6 mm follicle. The endometrium (sp?) is currently 9.9 (mm?). I get to give my self the Ovidrel shot between 7 and 9 tonight.

I've never given myself a shot, but there is a very nice instructional sheet and she showed me a few tips on doing it. So that should be good.

The IUI is scheduled fro Friday at 8:45 am.

Eeep. :
