2WW after IUI
Nov 13, 2004
This is my first time posting. DH and myself had our first IUI done on Wednesday Nov 10 and now I have to wait until Wed Nov 24 to find out if worked. I'm afraid to get my hopes up. We have been TTC for 3 1/2 years. DH had a varicocele and I have a tumor on my pituatary gland. I finally got pregnant last year around this time but MC on December 7 at almost 7 weeks. It's been almost a year since my MC and I still can't seem to get over it. I'm looking for someone that has a common problem that I can chat with. These next two weeks are going to be so hard. Here is my profile:

I'm 27
DH 28
TTC 3 1/2 years
MC on December 7, 2003
First cycle on Folllistim
First IUI done on November 10, 2004

I'll be looking forward to hearing for you. :wave:

hi kmlow. I am also in the 2ww, find out on the 19th if it worked. I did an IUI with gonal f. I think gonal f and follistim are the same (both brands of fsh). This is my second round of gonal f with IUI. Had two clomid cycles with IUI as well. No luck so far. It sounds like you really responded well with 7 follicles. You have lots of reasons to be hopeful with all those follicles, I would think! My doc also monitored me very closely while on gonal f. I only had three mature follicles this time around. My doc said he wants to see between 2 & 5 so I guess that was ok. I was hoping for more though. It's stressful. I am 28 years old. We've also been trying for about three years. I have never been pregnant. I am really sorry about your miscarriage. I hope this cycles works for you. I know how stressful it can be going through all this at a time when it seems everyone around you is poppin babies out like crazy. If this doesn't work for us, I think we're doing one more cycle of gonal F with IUI and then we'll move on to IVF. Our issues are that my husband also had a slightly low count, had a varicocele and surgery for that as well. It only improved a little though. But the RE gave us the impression that he wouldn't have recommended the surgery cause his counts weren't that bad to begin, not bad enough that he would think that was the reason we weren't getting pregnant. I had a large fibroid tumor removed in january that they thought was the cause of the infertility. We tried on our own for a few months and then started the treatments. No luck so far. But we'll see.
Well, good luck to you! I hope we both get what we're wishing for!

Thanks for your responses. Last Saturday and Sunday I did have a lot of discomfort. I just kept praying that everything wound be okay. I was so afraid of having OHSS. My doctor made that sound so bad. I was going to call him on Monday morning but when I woke up all the discomfort was gone. Its now Saturday again. My husband keeps asking me if I feel pregnant. When do you start to "feel" pregnant? I know 1 week is way too early to look for any symptoms. My breast are extremely sore but that's probably because of the progesterone that I'm taking 3 times a day. I'm so scared about going on Wednesday to find out if it worked or not. I have myself prepared for the worse. I still pray all day,every day for a positive. It wound be such a miracle in two ways. My sister is going to start on the injections this month. She is also going through this infertility battle. She had surgery last week for the 2nd time for endometriosis. Her insurance doesn't cover the follistim. I had gotten $4,200 worth of medication that my insurance covered. I had to buy 10 300IU vials of follistim for which I only used 2. I would love to be able to give her my follistim since she'll have to pay cash for it. Well thanks again for your responses. I find so much support at this sight!

Hi Km,
I'm glad that the discomfort has passed. It's hard to not think of the worst!
I think everyone is different when they start to"feel" pregnant. I've heard of some people having symptoms right away....and other's not until they've missed their period.
It's hard to not think too much of what our bodies are doing during the 2 week wait! I really hope that wednesday brings great news and that your sister is doing ok!

I'm a nervous wreck today. I took an EPT. Its been 14 days since my pregnyl injection and 4 days before I go for bpt. Well, there were two lines, one was very light though. I'm worried now that it could be a false positive. Maybe it was too soon after the pregnyl injection. I should have taken stacy's advice yesterday. She said if I took it than I would probably worry even more. I don't think I'll make it until Wednesday. I have another worry, if I am pregnant, how do I tell my sister? I know she would be happy for me. We both have been going through this together for over 3 1/2 years. I know I would be happy for her. I just know it would make her so sad for herself and I don't want that. Last year when I was pregnant, I didn't tell her until the morning I mc'd. We had a dinner planned for our mother's 50th birthday and when I woke up that day I knew something wasn't right. I mc'd that morning and of course I had to tell her. I felt horrible about it and I don't think that she's gotten over the fact that I didn't tell her right away. We are very close. I was just trying to spare for feelings but she felt she should have been one of the first to know.

I feel your pain about taking the test early! I won't say I told you so ;) , but I will tell you to call your doc and see if you can come in early for a blood test. They will probably take you. My doc was going to take me early but I live far away and couldn't make it in time. I am sooo excited for you, I hope this is your month! It was the 15th day after my hcg shot and my nurse did say that she believed it would be out of my system by then and she was optomistic. So I would say you can be optomistic too. Most likely it would be out. You can take another test tomorrow and see if it's any darker. The first one I took was wednesday and it was light, thursday was also light, friday was darker I think. I know it's so oooo hard cause you don't want to get your hopes up, but I hope you get the same happy results as we did. I am praying for you!
I am sure that your sister would feel so much happiness for you and that your success would give her hope. She will also probably feel sad for herself. IT's only natural. I had to tell a friend who was cycling with me going through exactly what we were going through at the same time that I was pregnant. She was happy for me I think, but I also felt horrible to tell her. I know I would have been happy for her and sad for me at the same time. It's a difficult situation but you and your sister sound very close and I am sure you will get through it together.
Best of luck!

Well, I actually decided to take Stacey's advice this time ;) , I've tested all three days. Actually a couple times a day using different brands of tests. I went to Eckerd last night and spent $45 more on pregnancy tests. I bought the EPT Digital and when I took it, it probably didn't even take much more than a minute to register "pregnant". It's so nice to see those words. When I removed the strip the lines where as blue as can be. Surely, 16 days after taking the Pregnyl, there wouldn't be enough hcg to make the lines that dark. I have my hopes so high. I'll be so upset if I find out that I'm not pregnant tomorrow. I have myself convinced that I really could be. I even went and bought a bib that says "I Love My Daddy". I thought that would be a perfect way to tell my DH. If I do get a negative tomorrow, I know one thing, I won't take ept's again. I'll just suck it up and wait for the bpt. Wish me luck tomorrow. Thanks for all your support!

OH MY GOD! That is the best news! I hope so much that you are pregnant and I really think you don't have anything to worry about. 16 days and getting darker that's a great sign! Congratulations. I know it's sooo hard to try not to get excited, I am still not convinced it's true for me. I am truly soo happy for you I hope we can join each other on the pregnancy board and go through this together because I will need someone to talk to about this!
Let me know your results tomorrow and best of luck! I am rooting for you! I know it will be good news, I just know it. Funny how we went through the exact same thing about a week apart. :bouncing: :bouncing: :bouncing:
Hope to hear the good news soon!
Stacy
