    Morning ladies,

    Today is CD16 for me, I got peak on my CBEFM and went for another monitoring u/s this morning. My regular RE is out of town and the stand in has cancelled my IUI cycle :(

    I have 5 follies, 24, 2*22, and 2*18mm, all ready to pop and he says the risk of multiples is just too high. Last cycle I had 4 and nothing happened so I'm very disappointed. I think we may just BD ourselves and see what comes of it...

    (Lurking) I don't usually post here but do lurk occasionally. I'm so sorry they cancelled your cycle. I would BD and hope that you catch one of your eggs. I hope it works for you this cycle. I am on CD#17 and did my IUI on Friday morning. I think I O'd on Sat, according to my temps. I am hoping they survived long enough for the egg to drop and that we get lucky this cycle. I read another post and their sperm counts were 4-5 times higher than ours, so that was kind of discouraging. But I know it only takes one, so will try to stay positive will on the 2ww.

    I lurk here too!

    I'm up for my 1st IUI next month and I'm trying to figure out which OPK or plain Ovulation test to buy. Should I just buy the $100 machine that reads the test strips for me?

    Darn! Sorry foir the cancellation, but there is still hope BDing it! Good luck!

    Hi french - I use the CBEFM (Clearblue easy fertility monitor) I like it because it takes the stress out of reading the OPKs... is is darker, is that a surge.. I know it's a bit more expensive but i do like mine, and its easy for me - I test once a day with FMU and if I go back to bed without reading the result it stores it for me on the monitor.

    I've used OPKs also and found them easy but i always paniced that maybe i was missing a surge, or had to test twice a day...

    hope that helps,
