Thanks for adding me!

Hoping the cysts will be gone when my pills are done. I am hoping with all the timing my IUI will not fall around xmas time.

It will be my first time with clomid and IUI.

I will be taking clomid 100mg days 3-7. I have no idea if I will be a fast, slow or no responder.

Anyone with Clomid experiences please I would love any info on it. What day did you have to trigger etc.

You can tell I am little nervous about this.

Thanks NatrualMom!

Spotting today, so...
You can put me down as waiting to O, I guess, for IUI#5, 2nd Follistim Cycle. We're going to lower the dose to 50 iu to see if I can develop a few more days. The RE is just not sure if my eggs could really be that mature/capable of being fertilized so quickly. It will be interesting to see if this cycle is any different. If it doesn't work, it's off to ivf next where we can suppress my twitchy ovulation instinct.
I guess I'm okay. I have to just accept the past cycle and move forward. It's a mental relief to be off the progesterone at the least, really muddies me lately.
U/S tomorrow and hoping for no cysts, they've been so common here lately.

I am sure getting ready for donor sperm has a challenging emotional terrain that comes along. Hope the cyst resolves quickly and a successful cycle for you soon!

Oh Poet- this really sucks Its a good idea from your RE though, because you did super resond, and it was atypical. And I hear you on the progesterone...yuck!

AFM- Ordered 2 vials of donor sperm today. It was odd, to say the least. It was hard for DH to sign the forms last night, but he did. 21 more days to get off the BCP's (yes, I'm counting down!!)

Naturalmom - Thanks for starting the new thread! Isn't it crazy that it is alredy Dec!!! I can't believe it! 24 days till Christmas!! Wow!! Anyways, I guess you can add me to the waiting to be ready list since I'll be watching from the sidelines this month. Went to get a 2nd opinion about all these sinus infections I have been having and he said I have sinus polyps and wants me to start a steroid dose to see if it will shrink them and give me some relief. Not too excited about that, but know I have to do something and can't go on living like this! He also said there may be some kind of connection between my nasal polyps and the infertility we have been experiencing. The appt was way too much info for me to absorb it all at that time, but next time i see him I'll have to maybe ask some more questions. Figures, I go through 2 IUI's/3 cycles of Clomid and all that stuff to end up in an ENT's office and have him tell me why I might not be getting prego?!?!?! Go figure - that would just be my luck. Wonder if anyone else has heard about this. Maybe i should post something to see. Good luck to all of you this month with your IUI's , I'll be cheering for you and hope to see a ton of Christmas babies!! I'm hoping to jump back on in Jan, but want to get this whole thing figured out before we spend more money out of our pocket.

After 5 failed IUI's & 6 failed IVF's we threw in the towel w/ ART and then got a NATURAL miracle BFP! Hoping and praying it is finally our take home baby!  Mother to our twins boys in heaven -lost at 22.5wks on 6/20/09 and 1 other little angel in heaven.

Our Miracle has arrived... Caden James...

Thanks for updating me!!! I could pass it by my RE, but at this point in time i really need to deal with the sinus problem before we start trying again. I will for sure talk to them about it once we are back in the TTC mode b/c I don't want to be spending money if there isn't much hope to begin with b/c of this issue that might be affecting our fertility. It is all a mystery!!! One day at a time, is my moto!!!! Good luck to you!

Poet--I have to agree with natrualmom that maybe you responded to soon with the meds and that you might need more "nourshing" time with your eggs. I think one of these cycles you will nail it just right. I think tweaking with your dosage will be beneficial. I was surprised before when you had to trigger early.

Blueyezz4--I hope you are feeling better. Maybe all the stress from the sinus infections is not good for ttc. You are in a lot pain and your body is focusing now on getting better. This is good that you are trying to get your health in tip top shape. Maybe the polpys are causing alot of pressure and fluid buildup in your pituary gland.

Natrualmom--gl this month with the donor. I am so happy for you that you are at peace with this. I think this is so amazing. I really think your whole family will be alright with this. You and poet amaze me on how you girls have been so strong and positive throughout all of this.

sorry I have been so chatty, I just need to talk. I feel so alone and frustrated lately.

Hi wtg4miracle, I have taken 4 rounds of clomid (50 mg days 3-7). The only side effects I have had are hot flashes and a few emotional breakdowns (might not have been related). However, I have heard that the higher the dose the more side effects, but on the flip side there is also a better chance for more eggs. We haven't done a trigger shot, my doctor just times with LH surges/positive OPK. Overall, I don't mind the clomid especially since it has my cycles under control.

Naturalmom - Thanks for starting the Dec thread! I'm excited to try an IUI this month, though nervous about taking the hormones. Just started Clomid today (cd4); I take that for 5 days, then the Menopur (FSH + LH) shot on cd9 and have my 1st u/s scheduled cd11, next Monday. I'm nervous about the hormones - already have a tendency to be moody - plus I'll have to give myself the shot because DH will be out of town that day!

Please update me as I am taking meds this month:
Lissame-TTC#1, IUI #1- clomid/menopur/trigger

Thanks!

Thanks for adding me Naturalmom, unfortunatley we are all back but it's good to have you all here. Some days are better than others, but at least we could all talk and learn from each other. Hope I could be in the December IUI, all depends on if cyst is gone this week.

wtg-took clomid for 3 months. Wasn't bad, just lots of hot flashes. I triggered only on month the day of my 2nd iui, my RE does 2 in one week. That caused a lot of cramping but you seem to deal with anything to get what you want so bad. Good Luck to u.

Do most of you go in for a follow-up appointment before having a beta?

We didn't do it last month with our first IUI. Because we live so far away, they let us skip it and we just planned on doing the same protocol this month of IUI #1 didn't work.

We did IUI #2 last Saturday and Sunday and we have a follow-up appointment scheduled for this Friday. They said they usually like to do it 7-10 days post IUI. Our appt. is later than that because of a referral mix-up. What do you even do at the follow up appointment? Is there an exam? Or do you just discuss the plan for the next cycle in case?

I got the results of my progesterone test. My level was only 5.They want it to be at least 10. I am going to start taking progesterone supplements tonight to help compensate. The Dr. is baffelled. They said that my cycle looked good so they don't know why my levels are so low. It makes me sad that maybe this cycle didn't work

DM360- . I am very sorry. Hoping the supplement brings your level up. I understand that at least a 5 means you did ovulate, though. Is that what your doc says?

Nummies- Updated. How did your procedure go?

DaisyMae- I guess I have never heard of this appointment. However, it may be a good idea to get a gameplan for next cycle just in case. At our clinic, we make the game plan on the CD3 US, depending on what is seen on u/s

Thanks Natrual for the thread! Very efficient!

Poet: so sorry to hear about the spotting. You are completely in my thoughts.

Blueyezz: goodluck with the specialist/sinus issue. It's a real b*tch that you're even going through all that. Hopefully it will be sorted, and you'll be back on the TTC wagon.

So, how is everyone else in the 2WW? Any news? Symptoms to report?
Well, I'm impatiently waiting for Friday, my official test date, to arrive. And the time is DRAGGING in. The first week in my 2WW went by quicker!

No real symptoms to report... the light achy cramp set in today in my lower belly, with a bloated feeling. I'm hoping like mad that this is a good sign...
And that it's not AF getting everything lined up for arrival. Oh, I hope, HOPE, HOPE there is a little bean in there...

Thanks for letting me know that clomid is not that bad. At this point I can deal with anything. I just want it to work.

Yes natrualmom we should have cystfest here. What gets me is that mine were not induced by nothing. I have been off depo-provera for over 2 years now. This is scaring me to bits. Please let these cysters be gone when I am done with these pills.

poet--I am so sorry. I wish I was there to give you a hug. I don't know what to say.

soc--I am praying that there is a bean in there.

I feel for everyone of you here. I will be going through this rollercoaster soon.

We don't do a CD3 US, so maybe that's why the follow up instead?

Dm360-so sorry about the # but hopefully the supplements will do the trick.

Daisy-re has never done follow up after iui. We just wait out the 2ww and go back when af comes or for a beta if af doesn't come, but that nasty af seems to always come.

Naturalmom- we are going friday for u/s, i'll let you knowhow it goes.

DM630, I am praying that you have a bean in there and the supplements help! My doctor also says that 5 indicates ovulation.

Soc, well I am just 1dpo. Obviously no symptoms yet, but I am already going a little crazy wondering what is happening right now. Did the sperm make it to the egg? I wish I knew! Every month the 2ww seems longer and longer. I have chosen my first test date as Dec 13th (12dpo). Maybe everyone here will be able to keep me honest and hold out till the end?

Thanks for all of the positive thoughts sent.

I was able to talk to the nurse again..once I was able to calm myself from thinking it was over.
She reassured me that it doesn't mean that the IUI didn't work, it is just more of a concern that my body does not produce enough progesterone, so the fun progesterone suppositories twice a day should help. I am still holding on to hope.

You can add me to the list, it's my first time doing IUI. I gave myself the trigger shot last night and tomorrow morning I'll have the IUI. I took serophene on CD 3-7. If nothing else, it feels good to at least be starting this process even if this cycle isn't successful. I'm sure it gets old fast, but right now it feels exciting.

Best of luck to everyone on their IUIs this month!

As I mentioned in the other thread my DH is out of town this week. I am having such lovely fertile signs. My temps seem more organized that the last two cycles. Beautiful CM. There was a faint line on the OPK this morning and if it is strong tomorrow morning they can possibly schedule us for Friday afternoon. It really depends on his work schedule. He's about 5 hours away and I don't see any way we could plan a rendezvous.

Thanks WTG! You might be right... maybe all the pressure in my head is causing an issue with my pituitary gland = infertility. You never know. Hopefully if that is the case then after all the swelling subsides it will change things for our infertility. We will see. That would be great. Sorry you are feeling so alone and frustreated lately. Don't feel alone!!! We are all here for you!!!! Take care of yourself in this challenging journey!!

The faint line must have been the tail end of the surge. Today I had nothing on the OPK and my temp went up. I'm sending all my spare fertile vibes out to everyone else in this thread.

I had my follow up appointment today. If this cycle didn't work, we're changing from Clomid to Letrozole. The nurse practitioner thinks 6-7 follicles is too many, but more importantly my uterine lining is far too thin. It was 3.9 at the time first IUIs and 4.1 at the time of my second IUIs. Not good at all.

I'm praying that the Clomid is the cause of the issue, otherwise she said thin uterine lining is one of the hardest problems to deal with.

On CD3 when I had my antral follicle count and wasn't on any drugs my lining was 4.2 and presumably got thicker as my cycle went on which gives me hope that the Clomid was the cause since 4.2 is higher than either of the measurements I had much later in my cycle after taking the Clomid.

Anyone have experience with uterine lining issues? Is there anything I can do to help it? I go to acupuncture once each week and will mention this at my next appointment. Are there any other things I can do? Vitamins? Supplements? Dietary changes?

Please let it be the Clomid that caused this. :
