Hi Stace

Would you believe that you turned my whole cycle around? I came into work this morning with no intention of going in for my 11.45 scan due to the LH surge on Friday and lining being so thin. I was sitting down at my desk with a cup of tea and I read your post and then darted like a woman possessed to my clinic (2 hours away!) and just made the appointment!

I went in for my scan ... and the follicle was still there!! And my lining had increased in size from 3mm to nearly 7mm (not perfect but not disastrous I don't think)! So they did IUI with me there and then! I can't thank you enough .. if my some stroke of luck I manage to get a BFP it will all be down to you... :snigger:

Good luck fairydust - it is a rollercoaster but all worth it in the end! :smile:

Hi ladies, it sounds like there's a lot going for everyone here at the moment.

Coxyloxy- it looks like Stace had a premonition!!! That's fantastic news...now just take it easy during your 2ww. Keeping my fingers crossed for you hun.

Stace-great to hear you've started your drugs for IVF. We had our review appointment this afternoon...I'll update my diary later this evening after dinner (which DH is cooking. Keep us posted with how it's going.

Fairydust-glad to hear the injection went ok this morning.

Slyfox-hopefully AF is just around the corner so you can get started soon.

AFM-DH and I have a lot of thinking to do but we think we know in our hearts what the next step is for us.

Ah coxy I'm so glad you went to your appointment! See that'll teach you to live by your own rules and have some pma! I told you, I learned a lot from your attitude!

That's exactly what happened to me, I was given the trigger there and then and insemed within the hour! Got everything crossed for you, it sounds like it was meant to be (and not to mention more convenient not having to drive all the way back for insemination another day!!!)

I thought it was amazing when I turned up and my follie was still there... It also made me wonder about the first 3 or 4 goes of iui for me, when they insemed on day of surge... As we use frozen donor sperm it's likely the acidity in my uterus killed the poor buggars before even my follie was released as frozen ds doesn't last as long as fresh...

Look forward to hearing your updates wannabe later on.

Fairy dust, glad the jab was okay, deep breaths, not many more now, count them down to that pupo day!!

I start my stimms on wed which will be cd21, so I'll keep gatecrashing here... You can't get rid of me, I'm an iui veteran now!! Xx

Hi again IUI/IVF'ers..

Stace: I am also questioning my whole approach over the past few months ... I have always assumed that you will always ovulate within 48 hours of first LH surge and BD'd accordingly. Apparently not. My clinic told me that you can get the surge up to 5 days before ovulation! And I have had an LH surge for 5 consecutive days now. So I think there might be an inherent flaw in IUI for me .. if they had done the IUI on Saturday (day after surge) it would have been a complete waste of time as its now tuesday and I still dont know if I have ovulated and am still surging!

Thats the great benefit of IVF - everything is so much clearer ... I found the 2 rounds I did absolutely fine and I'm going to crack on with another one in the new year .. going to give IUI 3 rounds first though as thats what my new clinic recommended....

Wannabe: do you mean IVF? If so, honestly, its not as bad as you think ... I even quite liked it, especially going under general :snigger:

:bye: Hello my lovely ladies,

Just update on me... AF showed early monday morning which was very happy too see. I went early this morning for my bloodwork at local hosptial since my RE is out of town so no baseline scan this time. So I will be starting my femara tonight an then on day 10 do my OPK testing with TI an day 21 will have my blood drawn again too see how strong things are this time around. woohoo

My DH goes to his specialist Oct 21 to start his meds. My DH appt was in dec but we called them an told them what doing an wanting to see specialist ASAP an they said ok.. OCT 21 we will see you all. :weehee: Which that is great.

On my blood draw today I should hear someething by Monday next week hope they are good. :pray:

RE done said if AF shows next month he will be doing a day 3 scan then start meds again ,day10 OPK testing with TI alone with day 12 another scan then day 21 blood drawn again. So me an my DH is prayn it happen fast this time instead of taking a yr.

So for right now we will be doing med opk testing an TI for 4 months, Then RE said if nothing happens then we will be doing IUI for a bit. So we're praying we don't have to do that this time.



To all you lovely ladies,
I'll be praying for all of you all to get a BFP very soon. I know how hard it is to wait for that special day to come. Don't give up as you will soon see that BFP an will be rejoicing how wonderful it is to have it.

Well I got to go an do some chores at homefront. So will post update when find out how bloodwork was. May you all have a great rest of week an weekend again.

Ladies, I have some news and I bring you hope. My third iui actually worked!!! I got a BFP on Monday 4th!! I was naughty and tested before monday and had a faint positive so i spent the next couple of days terrified i wouldnt get one on my otd but luckily i did and its been getting darker. Its all very surreal and as you ladies probably could tell from my previous posts, i had completely given up i really had. So what i want to say really is please please try and stay positive i know its hard but finally and long overdue we have a BFP in the IUI thread and there WILL be many more to come!

Sending all of you lots and lots of luck and if anyone has ANY questions at all, just give me a shout xxxx

I know I've already congratuated you but now it's official I want to wish you all the luck in the world with your pregnancy. it really has given me some hope for my third go and I'm going to try to stay positive during the whole 2ww this time :) I'm just trying to decide whether to go for it with next AF which is due at the end of this month...need to make my mind up as I'll need to get my drugs ordered in advance!

Please keep us posted with how you're getting on. I'll be keeping an eye out on the pregnancy boards!

Hi ladies

How are you all getting on?

I am 8 or 9DPO ... no pg symptoms .. and this morning my BBT was right down and I had some spotting this morning - so AF is on her way ... I am quite shocked as I was given tamoxifen for luteal phase defect and now I still seem to have it ... don't really know what to do next...

Hope you guys are having more success! :yes: X

Hi y’all,



Well not good news my end … Af arrived only 9 days after ovulation … and 10 days after the procedure … Disaster … I have had luteal phase problems for a while but the tamoxifen was supposed to solve it but has only extended it by a day. So frustrating.



Even more frustrating, is that the consultant rang and said there was some abnormal forms on my scan pictures that they need to investigate before any more treatment. So no IUI this cycle – whilst I go and have a contrast scan (£350!!)



I won’t be able to have any treatment now until January as we are away in November and then its Xmas and the clinic closes…



I had a complete meltdown at work yesterday and locked myself in the loos crying uncontrollably for about an hour. Then I woke up at 3am and started crying again, and woke DH up who was brilliant and calmed me down.



Feel much better today – I have these breakdowns when the whole outlook seems so bleak and grim and hopeless. Then I get over it and my positivity comes back (until the next knock!)



PrincessRebekah and Fairydust: am rooting for you! Those amount of follicles sound much more promising than my 1 ever did!

PrincessLH: thanks for the optimism, sadly not to be this month!

oh coxy, I am so sorry, I really hoped that all of the sudden change with your cycle was a sign of lady luck being on your side this month. It is heartbreaking isn't it.

not sure how I will feel if I get another BFN this cycle, I am kind of hanging all of my hopes on IVF but it's certainly not a sure thing.

Sounds like you have an amazing DH, i don't think any other couples really understand each other until you've been through something like this together, it really makes you realise how much of a rock they are.

well hunny, just look after yourself, and hopefully your scan will uncover anything that might be hindering your chances, and you can start in 2012 with a new year and a fresh slate. What are they expecting the contrast scan to show up? I'm not familiar with it.

good luck to all the other ladies cycling this month. I have my baseline scan Tuesday to check that my natural cycle has stopped and my lining is thin etc, and then hopefully I'll be onto the injectibles, and egg collection will be w/c 31st October for me as long as I respond well and make lots of nice follies.

fingers crossed for all you ladies, Rene, Ailly, Babymaybe and now PLH are our inspiration to keep going... it is possible guys so keep the PMA up.

I'll keep checking in on you all xxx

Hi ladies

Rebekah- how did your scan go? I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all goes to plan and you can insem next week.

Fairydust- yay not long til your I sem now :)

Coxy- I've posted in your diary Hun xxx

Stace-lovely to hear from you. I've been popping into the cycle buddy chatter to see how you're getting on. Sending you lots and lots of follie growing vibes!

AFM- I've ordered my drugs and the bill should be a bit cheaper this time as I have sone buserilin left over and have asked for less Gonal F as I hardly needed any of it last time to make the follies grow (typically that's the most expensive drug out of all the IUI ones). Just need to phone and pay on Monday and then wait for AF

Hi girls.

Fairydust- we're in the exact same position almost!!

Coxy- same thing happened to me on my first go! It gets better hun x

Ive updated my diary but for anyone who cant read it, here it is>>

Ok, as far as treatment goes- Had a scan friday. Wasnt good. Lining is only 5.6 or something and the follies were around 8mm still. Lining especially should have been alot thicker and I dont understand why it isnt if my follies are actually growing. Shes upped my dose to .75 of menopur and told me to go back yesterday. Yesterday the follies had grown but lining was only 5.8!!

Ive got two 11mm follies, one 10mm and one 9mm. I paniced a little about my lining and she said it could take off this week but just incase im on eastrogen tablets until my next scan friday.. Im SO nervous girls.

she doesnt want to cancel my cycle and seems fairly positive, but the fact i need help with the lining to me isnt great at all. The first time was almost perfect up until i came on early. Has anyone got any experience of this? Im just so worried it will be cancelled again and dont understand why im not responding well this time?!

princessrebekah i wouldnt worry huni try and stay positive ano its hard i feel really down aswell due to my follkicles not grown but the reason why the nurse said is because i am on a low dose of menopur (150) and you are on a lower dose than me so it will take its time huni and if your on tablets for your lining am sure they will work for you good luck huni xfingers for you chic xxxxxxx

Hello Ladies,
I had been doing opk testing from day 10 an was getting worried as wasn't seeing no + so thought wasn't going to see a surge as I usually see my surge on day 12 or 13 but on day 14 later in the evening I got my + but we didn't bd. Went too see our RE yesterday an had day 15 scan an he was happy with what he saw. He said I was doing good on meds an I had one mature follie @22mm, lining at 11+ an I was getting ready to O so he said for us to get busy with BD. The follie was already starting to collapse. So when got back home we BD. I go to hospital next week to have progesterone checked too see how is.. xfingers Before the RE walked out room yesterday he said don't see no issues why not get pg no matter DH has count at 13million an the motility is great an shapes are normal. So we got xfingers that we see a BFP soon. DH hopes to get me pg this month.. :snigger: My DH was suppose to go see his doctor this friday but have to wait due to his doctor had to go out of town unexpectedly.. So DH goes see his doc Nov 1 to start his meds again to help his T-Levels.

Today is start of my 2ww....Will start my pineapple an other things today for 5 days..

Our RE said he wants us to try til Jan if not pg then when come back will start IUI again but for now he only wants us to do meds, opk an TI as he thinks we can do it on our own..

Congrats to the one that got a BFP not long ago..

To all others got my xfingers that you all will get your BFP very soon..

Hi ladies

Princess Rebekah - try not to worry about your lining. On my last cycle it went from 3mm to 6.8 in 3 days - so things can move quickly .. Good luck hom x

Slyfox: good luck for the 2WW!

Stace: thanks for your message, it made me feel much better :happy: ... I am now following you down the IVF route, so we can be cycle buddies (almost, I will be a couple of months behind you, but almost!) I will lkeep an eye on your progress - do you have a diary?

As for moi ... the last week has been pretty grim ... have felt tearful and the sight of a radiant young woman with a bump is enough to send me off..

However, my current plan of action is to have Chicago immune testing done, get the contrast scan done to see what on earth they are seeing near my lining, and then start monitoring cycle at ARGC in December - scary but unfortunately think its come to that...

Speak soon XXX

Hi ladikes

Fairydust and Becky - sorry to hear that it's been slow going but try to be patient. I'm keeping my fingers crossed it'll work out okay for both of you (Becky I've posted in your diary).

Coxy-I hope your scan goes ok and they can tell you what's going on. I'll be popping into your diary to see how your IVF is going over the next few months.

Slyfox-trying naturally sounds like a good idea and it sounds like you've got a really good doctor.

AFM-I'm all set to go, just waiting for AF now so I can book my baseline scan

Hey has anyone ever had to do menopur from vials you make up yourself? You're given 1ml of water and a little vial of menopur power, draw it up, change the needle then inject the whole thing? It's a whole ml in the syringe?!

Ive been doing those the last couple of days and im struggling. The needle is actually less painful but the injection hurts more. I think its down to volume. However its a measured .75ml dose exactly. I just dont get why the volume is so high! Surely it doesnt need to be diluted that much?!

Also, has anyone one ever had Progynova to help your lining thicken? If yes what dose were you on?

Hi girls,

Princess Rebekah, just popped on and though I'd answer your question.

I had to do that menopur last time for the last few as they were cheaper than the big kit as I only needed 3 days worth at the end of my last iui. I have also been given it this time for my ivf cycle too... Apparently the old sort with just one vile which lasted 10 doses or so has been taken out of production...?

Anyway, yes I have to mix up one water to two viles, it is a faff, changing needles etc and also, I find that I lose about 0.1ml due to air bubbles and not being able to get all the solution. I am hoping that won't make a difference.

The injection is a little sharp, I agree it's cos it feels like more liquid, have you tried the leg instead as it's not s fiddle tryng to pinch your belly etc.

Can't help on the proxynova I'm afraid, just on the red meat to try and get my lining nice and thick!

Hope you other iui ladies at good! Miss you! Xx

I just wanted to drop by and let you all know that I had my first scan at 6 1/2 weeks and all was perfect we saw a little heartbeat flickering away. I have to go back at 9 1/2 weeks for another scan and then i will be with the local midwife.

I want to wish everyone the best of luck with there cycles this month and i hope that this gives you some real hope that even when u have given up, iui does work. Im still going to be hanging around here seeing how you all get on. It will be so amazing to see some iui ladies over in the first trimester xfingers xfingers xfingers xfingers xfingers xfingers xxxxxxx

Hi Fairydust, i think it must be as it was at the fertility clinic and everything measured ok so i guess they must do a follow up. He did say come back in 2 weeks but they couldnt fit me in for 3 weeks. The doc just said as they have seen a heartbeat the chances of m/c have dropped and if everything is measuring as it should at the next scan then it drops considerably. Gota say im a little nervous again but i got the most nervewracking one done now.

Lots and lots of luck for this cycle Fairydust ill be checking back to here ur bfp announcement! xxxx

Hi girlies. Sorry for being MIA. I had a bit of a toughtime after my last tx was abandoned. But hey these things happen and I'm feeling much more positive. I was basted on Thursday and went for a scan yesterday to be told I hadn't ov. So I was triggered again and told to have timed bms. I only had one juicy follie at 2mm. Fx this is the one even with the false start. My otd is 9/11/11.

So how r all my girlies. I haven't had a chance to read back and catch up. But as I saw a congratulations is overdue for plh. That's such happy news. How is everyone else getting on? Xxxxxxx
