What day are you scheduled for your FET? I hope it goes well, are you excited??

I'm just going for my first IUI probably Tues or Wed, they haven't triggered me yet and I already have 4 follies, the biggest at 2.0 so I hope we don't miss the boat on this one. I have to put my trust in them though because I'm sure they know best.

I'm praying that this cycle works although that would be a miracle since the chances of the 1st IUI working for a couple are very slim. And that coupled with MF it's even slimmer lol.

May I ask what your fertility problems are based on?

Anyways good luck with your FET!! ^_^

My transfer is scheduled for Dec 4. Frankly I'm getting a little fed up with taking all this medication. I really hope this works or we're going to be exploring other options.

Sounds like we'll be finding out our outcomes at similar times. Wish you lots of luck.

How did your transfer go?? :th_acheerlead:

I guess we will be testing around the same time, plus/minus 2 days. I'm 5dpo right now and none the wiser lol..I don't have high hopes for this cycle but of course holding out for a miracle. Hope you get your BFP!!

Are you going to hpt?


Oh yes, maybe I'll see you there! lol

I'm definitely going to do a hpt, i've been doing them every 3 days to see if the HCG is out of my system. I did one this morning and it looks like all of it is out of my system so I know that if I get a line even a faint one when I test "really" and obsessively lol at 12dpo and on that it will be a true bfp.

I am so anxious to know, it's all I can think about. Whether positive or negative I just want to know now, you know what I mean? I feel like my tummy is in knots from all the anxiety and excitement of the wait!

LOL, I know what you mean about the waiting. I just don't know about the hpt. If you keep getting a negative, isn't that crushing? As opposed to just finding out once?

Well not really, I sort of don't mind because then it's not as much of a shock. I took another one this morning at 10dpo and it's almost identical to the one at 8dpo so I'm not sure if the hcg is still in my system or if it's those darn cheapie tests. I always get a faint line with the $1 tests. I have terrible heartburn the last 2 days and headaches that I can't get rid of. I had the same with my son last year shortly after i missed my period.

But I'm not sure what to think...could it be the progeste3rone, or could it be pregnancy or could it be the cold weather etc...

How are you feeling? Will you test before your beta at all you thinki?

I think it's too early to tell if you have symptoms. I want to feel something but unfortunately I feel quite well. My only problem is that I feel tired at night but that started when I started taking progesterone. I'm feeling tempted to test at home. Still not sure what to do.

Are you seeing Cooke or Williams? I like Dr Williams.

Oh wow!!! Congratulations, I am SOOO happy for you!!! :Emoticons01015:

Sorry I have not kept in touch, I had a BFN for my first IUI cycle. We just did our second IIUI this morning with 5 million post wash so I don't have big hopes. I promised DH we'd do Oone more IUI before moving to IVF...or starting to save money for IVF that is lol..

I am so so so happy for you! Congrats again and I wish you the best 9 months ever!! :th_acheerlead:

I guess I spoke too soon. I ended up having a miscarriage this week. I had no idea until we went in for the ultrasound and they could not find a heartbeat. It's crushing.

Best of luck. Please let me know how you do. Not sure why, but this section of the board is fairly quiet. Nice to know someone else is out there.

Oh I'm so sorry that happened. I wish you strength in this, it must be so hard to have gone through so much and then be let down so hard. I can't imagine what you must be feeling right now. Please know I'm here to listen if you need to talk.

What will be the next step for you?

I am starting BCP in March for IVF in April. I have my beta on Feb 3rd but my hopes are very low for this IUI cycle. We had 5 mil and 2 mil and only 2 follicles.

Talk soon!

It's hard right now to make decisions and we have to wait a couple of months anyways so gonna take the time to make good decisions.

If you have any questions about IVF, I'd be happy to answer them.

Wow, it's been a long time. But turns out my Feb 3 beta was positive! I ended up having a little girl, she was a preemie but she is healthy and well.

We are starting testing with Dr. Cooke again in July. I am surprised that everyone has to do a month of cycle monitoring now but I'll play along :)

How are you doing??
