Finally got to call me first day 1 in today! Was delayed a few months due to CMV coming back positive and such. Excited to start this cycle. My first apt is on Friday and we will be taking clomid. We are unexplained infertility and have been trying for over 2 yrs now and have had zero luck conceiving so hoping this will get us to our end goal :) hope everyone else is having successful cycles!

We did our 1st IUI in DEC which was a BFN. Then because of the holidays We didn't get to start our 2nd until Fe. We had our 2nd IUI on Feb 15. We only had 200,000 post wash so I am not that optimistic about getting a BFP on March 2. I don't' think I'm going to test at all. Just going to wait for AF. Due to DH post wash counts we have decided to get the ball rolling to start the IVF process.


30, TTC since Oct 2014, MFI

 

IUI#1 Dec 2016. 800,000 post wash - BFN

 

IUI#2 Feb 2017 200,000 post wash - BFN

 

Recommended we move on to IVF with ICSI due to poor sperm motility

Travelling to RFP in Calgary as IVF is not offered in NL

IVF #1 - May 2017yahoo.gif

            -March 2nd, 2017 ->Consult with RFP

            -March 3rd, 2017 -> Registered for IVF

Hi New World! My beta is scheduled for March 7th too!

 

This is our first IUI, and I'm already excited nervous!

 

DH post wash counts were 98 million and 43 million

I had one follicle 18mm and 2 that were 9-10mm (probably didn't make it)

 

We had IUI done 12 and 36 hours after trigger.

Hi New World! 

 

I will for sure be taking a HPT before the blood test! I couldn't go in NOT knowing... :/

 

What about you??

 

I have been taking those cheap internet strip tests (one at 3 DPIUI and one at 5 DPIUI) to test out the trigger shot. The first on was fairly dark, the second was barely visible. Hoping it disappears and then comes back!

 

Are you having any symptoms? I don't feel anything different at all. And I'm even on progesterone suppositories at night (1/day) and I don't have any symptoms.

I didn't buy any HPT for this cycle. I might change my mind few days before blood test :D

I'm taking 200mg Prometrium three times a day, in total 600mg per day.

I think that's what gave me cramps for a week since ovulation.
Now I don't have any cramps anymore.

It's great you tested out the trigger.
What was the dose of your trigger?

Looking forward to hearing your results ladies since you all went before me :)
We go in tomorrow for insemination. Fingers crossed all will be good. We had 2-3 follicles on the left of proper size and 1-2 on the right so they figure my left will release. We triggered last night, wishing time moved a little quicker lol

Newworld, I don't remember the dose of my trigger, sorry! Threw the box out after.

 

My RE's office called this morning and they put me on the schedule for 8:45 AM on 3/7/17 for my blood work. So somehow I've got to get through 8 more days!

Hey ladies hope the tww is going well for you all!
When we went in today the dr said we had 5 follicles and 48.2 million post wash so things are looking good for us hopefully! Beta is scheduled March 14.
For those that tested out the trigger how many days did you have before it was out of your system?

Will you ladies get your results on the same day as the blood test?
For me, I have to do the blood work in a community lab, and the nurse from the fertility clinic will call me the next day.
So 1 extra day of waiting for me :(
Another thing is, I won't get my period until I stop Prometrium.
Thus have to wait until 19dpiui to get accurate results :(

Today is 16dpiui No AF in sight yet. But I am on Crinone 8%. I was told that could delay my period. I haven't done a pregnancy test as my blood test is tomorrow morning. Crossing fingers. My fertility clinic has their own blood lab. I think they will call me the same day I'll ask if I can wait lol.

CONGRATULATIONS NMS125!!! That's wonderful news!!

 

I tested out my trigger and it was completely gone (on a cheap HPT strip) on 7DPIUI. No reappearance of a line yesterday or today (8 and 9 DPIUI). 

 

My RE's office will give me the results of the beta test the same day...but I hope to know before going in. I couldn't stand waiting for the phone call.

 

Can't wait to hear everyone else's news! I have such a good feeling for us all this month!

Thank you. It's still hasn't sunk in yet. I waited more than the 2 weeks (17 days) I didn't want to know until the blood work. I didn't want to be disappointed twice, at home and clinic.
