Vanishing line..

today's test had no line that I could see, maybe I have better luck with second MU...or evening testing. I will try again tomorrow morning...but I still feel like I am thinking this is going to work!

I Squinted

and saw the hint of a line...

I am 9dpo today...I tested out my trigger already so any line is a positive, and I am 90% sure that there is a line on today's test, and 10% sure I am imagining it. I have also had every pregnancy symptom under the sun, but most of them are probably more related to the progesterone suppositories.

I can not wait to pee on a stick tomorrow! I hope the line is more obvious so I KNOW that I am not imagining it!

IUI complete

IUI is finished.

I am happy...but now I am in the dreaded 2WW...and I am bored already. How I am going to get through the next 2 weeks I am not sure...luckily its not a full 2 weeks...and I will be testing...test the trigger away, so I will start in 5-6 days. I really hope this works, and I have a good feeling it will, but just how many babies is what scares me...I hope no more than 2.

On a side note, ovulation hurts like HELL when there are multiple killed, I could barely walk this am. Hopefully thats a good sign too!

IUI #5.1

Today's IUI went very well. It started with a delicious breakfast Sandwich that T will be getting me again tomorrow(he doesn't know this yet!) And ended with talk of my own reality if that will happen. I discussed my concerns with getting pregnant with more than 2, he said there is a very slim chance of that happening, but its obviously not impossible considering there are 3 mature follicles and a bunch of small ones.

He joked with me when I aked about multiples; "you don't want to be a reality star?"...haha...NO.

But come a days with OCT.O.MOM, 3 is a spit in a pail...I wouldn't really have a reality, as a dear friend pointed out...if all 3 were to split into identical twins, then I would have me a reality show!

3 mature follicles....yay! one stopped growing, and the 2 little guys stayed the same. I am so thankful! there were tons of little ones they didn't bother measuring as well. It was amazing to see my ovaries on the screen....they looked like popped popcorn!

So we triggered this morning for IUI's tomorrow and Wednesday....I really have a lot of hope for this cycle, I hope the universe decides this time is my time!

Ima Skeered

tomorrow is my Follicle Scan, and likely trigger. I had 6 follicles Saturday....I really really hope there's no more than 4 mature tomorrow.

Clomid made me nervous from the start, I never had an ovulation issue, so this was all to produce an extra follicle or 2...not 5!

Has anyone else out in the internets had trigger and IUI with a clomid cycle? and how may mature follicles did you have? and if successful did you end up pregnant with more than one baby?

6 follicles.....DAMN

it looks like 2 of them are too little to mature (9&10mm) but 4 will likely mature.

That's my absolute upper limit....I hope that is all that's going on on Monday for my next scan.

Will likely trigger Monday too for a Tues/Wed IUI.

Follicle Scan Tomorrow!

I am anxious/nervous/excited to see whats going on in there...I can definitely feel something!

I hope its more than 2 and no more than will end up being an off cycle.

Clomid is NOT my friend!

I feel like death on a stick. Headaches, nausea, hot flashes, moodiness...and I can't sleep any of it off either. 3 days to go!

Cycle Monitoring

on to IUI#5...this time with clomid joining forces to conquer Mt. Pregnancy.

I start 50mg clomid tomorrow (CD3) and take it for 5 days. I am so very nervous about it. I am worried I will have too many follicles, I am worried I will feel like crap, I am worried that it won;t help at all....but I am trying to forget all of that and just let come what may.

I just hope clomid does the trick, and I don;t have to deal with Trying again for a long time (at least a year or so!)

Share our clomid experiences (good and bad) with me! How many follicles did you did it make you feel?

Day One


See RE tomorrow for lovely messy u/s and bloodwork. and he can answer my trillion questions.

Wednesday, June 3, 2009

Thank You Thank You

to all my loyal followers(is that what you all are called) I have appreciated all of the advice...truly.

I am working on a list of questions for the RE...since for all I know CD2 could be tomorrow.

I am having a lot of difficulty with this cycle ending in BFN...Even though I knew it would. If anyone has a link to how much clomid or the like increase pregnancy rates, I would like to know how much extra chance it gives us, or if we should just skip it if it doesn't work after one try.

Thanks :)

Moving forward...yet I feel like I am standing still.

Next cycle is clomid....when I go in for my monitoring appt CD2 which I imagine will be Friday or Saturday.. I have a lot I want to talk to him about.

Why clomid...if I am already ovulating like a machine? How many rounds of clomid before that's a bust too? Whats next after clomid? Are there any other options other than clomid that would be good for my situation? Basically I wan't my bloodwork back to tell me if I have any clotting issues to worry about, and to just move on to IVF...I don't feel like clomid is going to benefit me any, but at the same rate I am hoping thats all it takes, since IVF is so much more pricey than what we are doing.

I can not believe we have done 4 IUI's now and have spent $4000 + dollars and have nothing but a bruised belly and a cranky me to show for it.
