Re: New 2ww thread
Feb 26, 2007
Hi Mapia,

I know what you mean. I usually dread beta too because I don't want to hear bad news. Usually my beta is 13-14 days after IUI but for some reason it isn't until 15 days this time. So beta for me isn't until 3/13. Part of me was mad I have to wait the extra day because I don't usually get AF before but the other part of me was relieved to have the extra day. Sounds stupid I know :rolleyes: When is yoru beta scheduled for? I really do hope to see many BFPs this month. This last month was depressing with very few on the board. We are all due for some good news :)

Brown, Yes, HPTs are evil :nono: I have a hard time some months too not taking them. If you have to, at least wait until 13 or 14 days after IUI or O so they are mostly accurate. Next week will just drive you crazy :dizzy: If you feel the urge, post instead. We will help you through it!

Thought I would bump this thread back up since I just entered the 2ww today. :) IUI went great! His count was 45 mill post wash, and the procedure was painless. I've got some cramping going on, and I have been talking to the little spermies all day...telling them to fertilize, fertilize, fertilize! I keep saying, come on, you know you want to! ;)

Holly... I forgot to tell you in the other thread that I am so happy that your IUI went great!! Maybe you won't even have to decide if you are going to do the other thing. Maybe this IUI will work for you and BF!!!:) I really hope so. Try not to psych yourself out thinking about the possible IVF so that maybe this one will just do the trick!!

Good luck. Stay calm during this two weeks. I am a little jealous... it is only cd6 for me.

Okay, I thought I'd move this thread back up since I am getting a little antsy in the 2ww tonight. I'm babysitting my 2 little nephews right now and they are both asleep and I can hear the little one (he's one) snoring on the monitor. It's so cute :) I'm not really sad like I usually am but just really, really want this to happen for me (and all of you too). I'm getting so discouraged with IUIs but can't move on yet because of insurance (yes, I know I'm lucky I have insurance, sorry). I have my IVF consult on 3/28 but wouldn't be able to start anything until mid-late April after another IUI. I just can't wait for that to start. Then I think I'll feel like I have a real chance again and be hopeful. Well that's it. Thanks as always for listening.

I wanted to wish all of you luck during this 2ww. I've been really quite & off the boards since my last bfn, but I wanted to check in and see how you are all doing.
I just entered my 2ww on Friday, when I had my IUI, which was really positive - 87million sp count! And I had 3 follies (1 right, 2 left), so I am cautiously optimistic. Lots of prayers for all of you! Thanksfully work is going to keep me crazy busy over the next 2 weeks, so the time should fly by.

Hi Lori!

I just wanted to let you know that I understand how you feel about becoming frustrated with the IUI's. i have had 4 and am done with that now. I completely agree with what you said about wanting to start IVF to feel like i have a chance again. I have spent all of february and will spend half of march doing all my preliminary tests before starting the IVF cycle and this is the most hopeful i've felt in a long time. ths last BFN was the worst but instead of making me sad it just made me mad and i used that energy to research IVF and make the decision to move on. we may be doing our IVF cycles around the same time. hopefully you won't need IVF and this next IUI will be your lukcy time. but if in fact you do move on there are lots of us with you so we'll all make it through with each other's support. Good luck.

Holly, glad you had fun in NYC. Weekend get-aways with DH are always good to help the 2ww go by a little faster. I know, I can't wait until next week either. I hope we get a whole chain of BFPs!

JustDance, 87 million! That sounds great. I hope this is the one for you too.

Hi CBB, This is IUI #4 for me so I am feeling exactly like you did. I'm done and want to move on. But I have to do 5 before insurance let's me move to IVF. So that means I can probably start BCPs around mid-April to prepare for IVF. Of course, if I don't get a miracle by then! I still have some hope but am just being realistic and am excited about trying a new possibility. Keep me posted on how your IVF is going. We should be starting around the same time or maybe I will be a little after you.

Hi guys,

Mapia, Lori and Holly. Good luck this week!!!! It would be so great to have all 3 of you with BFP!!! :)

Lori- Just wanted to let you know I am right there with you. As you know if I respond well my next cycle we will convert from IUI to IVF. So I still may be doing IVF with you. It all depends how things pan out. I will be hoping you won't have to wrry about IVF but if it get to that point we along with C B B can support eachother!!!

Good Luck you guys!!!

Hi ladies, today marks the 1st day of my 2ww. I had my 8th IUI today. This was the first month that I used injectables and I responded really well. I had 8 follies between the size of 18mm and 22mm which is really good. I normally only have 1 follie so I am pretty excited. We also had a sperm count of 23.8 million which is the highest we have ever had so I am thinking only good things over the next 2 weeks. So I know I am a little behind some of you but if none of you mind I will join in on your thread because I know I will be going crazy these next 2 weeks and will need someone to talk to.


Good Luck to everyone this month, so far it looks really good. Baby Dust all around...

Hi Kari,

I am taking 150cc of Follistim and I took it starting cd3 and ending on day cd9. I had my IUI done on cd11 which I thought was kinda early but my follies were at the right size and my blood work came back with good numbers so I am just going to trust that RE knows what she is doing.
Re: New 2ww thread

Stephaine I take prometrium 2 times a day.It does help stregthen ur lining to support a potential pregnancy.My lining was at 8 before my iui and re told me thats good but for some reason gives me prometrium since I take clomid and that thins ur lining.Well I really dont have many side effects from it.Once in awhile I will get a cramp but nothing bad.Well good luck.Have u started the prometrium yet or tomorrow since u had IUI today my re tells me to start it the day after IUI.

Okay ladies, today is day one of my 2ww already going insane. I do have a question though. I took HCG shot Sunday Morning and then had IUI on Monday morning, but I am have cramping and bloating today. Do you think that they did the IUI to early and that the cramping I am having is because I am ovulating today? I really hope this is not the case because I have high hopes for this month

Stephanie
Re: New 2ww thread
Mar 6, 2007
Stephaine I wonder why they had u do IUI 24 hours after trigger most re's do it 36 hours after trigger cause thats when u ovulate.But that dont matter I mean sperm lives for more then 24 hours after being washed.So they still timed it fine.Dont worry about the cramps its normal.

I am 1 week past iui and I am still getting pains which is real weird feels like ovulation pain.Oh well its funny how we notice every little pain in our body now.So anyway welcome to the 2ww.Good luck.

Mapia
Re: New 2ww thread
Mar 6, 2007
Oh Stephaine u are using donor so am I.Yeah frozen sperm doesnt live as long as fresh that why timing is so crutial.Now I know u ovulate 36 hrs after trigger shot.My re has me doing 2 IUI's a month.So how many cycles have u done?This is my 6th and u might have heard last month I had a chemical pregnancy.So now my Re is relieved knowing I can get pregnant.Anyway I will be praying for all of us.

Mapia
Re: New 2ww thread
Mar 6, 2007
So do you know how long donor sperm lives? i guess this is a question I never thought to ask. i just always assumed that RE know what they were doing. i am going to be very upset if they have been doing this on the wrong cd this whole time. The iui that i had yesterday was # 8. I have never had a pregnancy so I am started to get worried, RE does not seem worried but I am.

Good luck this cycle
