Well we had our first series of ICI this weekend. Now we have to wait till this friday for a blood test, and then wait some more. This is our first time so its all very new to us. We're just keeping our fingers crossed.
I don't know anything yet but thanks for asking. I'm not do for my period until Aug 2nd but I will probably start testing on Friday because I can never wait. I really torture myself with testing but when I had the m/c I found out I was pregnant 10dpo and then had it confirmed at the doctors office 12dpo. So I'm hoping it will show up early again but every pregnancy is different. 8-O AHHHHHH!
This is our 5th try since the m/c in Jan and I'm trying to stay positive but I'm so emotionally wiped this cycle. We just want it so bad. I will probably skip next cycle to get myself back together if it doesn't work.
eapicella, Well I hope that this time around everything works out. I will be thinking of you this Friday! As far as my partner and I, we think that my issue has been timing. Those OPK's can be hard to read, or at least mine were. Finally I bought the $40.00 digital that gives a smiley face :) when the LH surge happens. I found it much more friendly to use. I will probably take a pregnancy test on August 4th. It's funny because I can get obsessed with the "tests", but my partner could wait a month if we had to. Her patience is incredible!
dvz, Good luck to you guys! I know the waiting game is horrible, but the outcome is FANTASTIC! Hang in there! I've been on the clomid for the last 5 days and will start estrogen tomorrow. I go in on Wed for an ultrasound to see if I'm ready to ovulate (probably won't until Thurs or Fri though) and then get inseminated on Saturday. :)
Imamomnow, well we are on our second series, the progesterone test they did at 7 days indicates that I did ovulate. So on Monday we go for the PG test. I plan on trying an at home on Friday to see what it says. fingers are still crossed! Deb
dvz, Good luck to you! The Clomid produced several eggs, but for some reason I have not ovulated yet. I go in tomorrow for another ultrasound (#3) and if they haven't gotten any bigger then I take progesterone to make AF come and then start 100mg of Clomid to see if that will work. FRUSTRATING!! :X
Imamomnow, We're sorry to hear that you haven' ovulated yet, but hang in there!!! Did your doctor suggest giving you a trigger shot of HcG to release the mature eggs from the follicles? About 3-4 days before ovulation we would go in for the internal sonogram and then our doctor would figure out when we should do the trigger shot.
We're thinking of you! Best of luck!!! Here's some baby dust ********** Proud Moms :)
ProudMoms, We went out to day 19 and instead of getting mature, they "fizzled" (their words) so I gave up on this month and went on the progesterone to counter the estrogen so that I will get AF on schedule. I'll stop taking all meds on Sept 2 and should get her in a day or two. Then call in on day 1 to make a day 10 appointment and start on the clomid (100mg this time) on day 3-8. They said if this double dose didn't work then I'll have to consult the doctor for a different plan. I don't know what that means, but if it's IVF then we're out. That's definitely not in the bank...so I'm praying that this double dose will work. My usual cycle is mature follicle on day 12, trigger shot on day 12 and then inseminate on day 13. My body has decided to betray me and start acting weird...ovulate on day 10 one month...not produce mature follicles the next month... :X It's pretty frustrating, but I went through 8 cycles before I conceived my son so I'm not giving up yet! How are you guys doing??
Imamomnow, No luck this month! They are running blood test for my FSH again waiting to see results before we try again. This is our last shot its just too $$$$. We will try later with my partner, after we save up again. She is younger, but I wanted to at least try.
Imamomnow, Well we are on cycle 3, 3rd times a charm right? All my lab results were good so we are trying again, we even did an ultra sound after I go the positive LH and it showed the eggs were ready to go. We did two rounds of IUI one on 9/11 and the other 9/12.So now we wait 7 days for a progesterone test 9/18 and then the pregnancy test on 9/25. This is my last try so have my toes & fingers crossed. If its meant to be it will, if not then we try in January with my partner.Will keep you posted.
dvz, Lots of baby dust to you!! Please keep me posted on your results :) I go in on the 18th for an ultrasound to see if the 100mg of Clomid worked..so hopefully I can do the IUI next week too. Stay positive!
Wishing you both the very best (that sounds like a Hallmark commercial)! Baby dust to both of you!
Things are going very well - being pregnant is quite a different experience. I don't want to go on about it because I know how it feels when you are trying to get pregnant and everyone around you is pregnant and keeps talking about it.
Please let us know your news...either way....we've been there 7 times when it was "not pregnant" and 1 with a "pregnant."
Hi, my partner and I (she will be carrying)are going to the dr's sat to do the ultrasound and then hopefully inseminate on sun and mon. When they do the ultrasound and the folicules are not mature will they mature the next couple of days, or do you have to wait until the next cycle to inseminate?
