Yeah!I'm so gale to have someone to go through this with! Looks like I will be about one week ahead, I go in for ultrasound on 4/12. This board has been so quiet for a while. What have you been doing to keep your self busy? Did you get a RE consult?

My biggest struggle is work, I have such a hard time going to work after a BFN or after an IUI. This month I am planning to take a few days off after the wait, to take a rest, the waiting and the 2ww is always the hardest for me.

Take care and keep me posted, Cassy.

Thanks I will need it! I had a male ultrasound tech, and he is the best one! I was nervous about a male too, but now he's my favorite!

Well I had my IUI this morning, we collected our sample at home, as we only love 4 minutes from the clinic. My IUI was at 930am on 4/16. I have had quite a bit if cramping the past few days and now it's even worse after the IUI. I stayed home from work today, to rest which I have never done before. My nurse said some times the follicle will be tender after it releases it egg! I described it today as a "full" feeling. Like when I sit down, I feel all my internal organs? Is that weird??? Lol! Ay way start progesterone on Thursday morning. Its more like the 3 week wait!!, but I am going to test on 13 days past IUI which is a Sunday, so I don't have to be cranky on a Monday morning, which will be 4/29.hope I can wait that long!

Moe,

I had cramping before and after my IUIs also. I stayed home after each one. The 2nd IUI was the worst. I had to lay down for about an hour after we got home because I was in so much pain. DH ended up staying home as well because he was worried about me. I never had to do the progesterone though. Why does your doc have you doing that?

Anyway, good luck. I have been kind of lurking on your posts here, but haven't posted until now since I am not doing an IUI this month. Lay low today, you should feel better by tomorrow.

How did your Lap go?

Doc regularly prescribes progesterone suppositories to support early pregnancy. I also take a estrogen supplement as the Letrozole decreases my estrogen. it's weird how every clinic does things differently.

The Lap went well. He removed some significant amounts of endo and some scar tissue. I went back for my follow up appointment and had to get an MMR shot and my prolactin level was high, so they retested that also. It came back good. Since I got the MMR we CANNOT get pregnant in the next month. After which I think we are just going to be trying on our own for a few months. If that doesn't work, then we will do another IUI. Since I am with an RE now, he does things a little differently then my OB did.

It is weird how docs/clinics do things differently.

How have you been, how many of your follicle came to size after the 16?

I woke up this morning with nausea and a headache, lasted for most of the day. Praying it was from being pregnant and not the flu. Not sure if I can even start feeling the pregnancy 6 days after IUI.

have been good, im not sure about the sizes after the u/s. does your doc do another one before the IUI?? i had some discomfort after this IUI but then i was fine. i did start having cramps wednesday night after BD with DH and it went into yesterday but today is much much better. im hoping the cramps are a GOOD thing.
how have you been feeling? when are you going to test? the 2ww is horrible, i keep telling myself that their is a little ball of cells in there forming and growing into a baby!!! i sure hope we get some GREAT news in the next few weeks!!!

My ob usually measures the follicle until at least one is at 19 to 21, goal is to do the injection when the follicle is around 21.

(trigs)

I have been tired and have cramps. I POAS this morning and it was a BFP, let's hope this one sticks!!
