    18 million sperm post wash.
    Weds 1/13 I had 3 follies 12mm 14mm & 24mm. They didn't recheck my follies. They acted like the 24 would not be too large against everything i've read. . . I'm hoping I had the 24 and possibly the 14 up to a 16-18 by Friday??

    Any thoughts?

    I don't really know how to feel right now. I'm kind of numb. It has been a lot of stress (as you know) just to get to this point.

    Also, the RN did my iui. . . is that normal? I've only seen the RE 1 time for my 1 hr consult and then 1 time in passing in the hall where he briefly chatted with my RN and said "sounds good". I was at least expecting him to perform the iui even though it was a simple procedure. What's up with that????
    I am hoping this is it for you guys!!!
    The RE's have always done my IUI's but I do know some practices that have the nurses do it.

    Oh Robin I am so sorry...big HUGS HUGS!!! I hope he can give you some options like IVF with donor eggs, I know it would be crazy expensive but maybe you guys could swing it.

    It sounds promising to me - you have at least one, hopefully 2 follies and the sperm count is good. I have been staying busy to keep my mind off the 2ww but it still feels like there is a long time til I get to test. I have had 2 IUI's and the RE has done both of them. I hope it works for you!

    OH Robin!!

    I'm so sorry to hear the torment and torture you are going through. Reading this I can feel your sadness and frustration in the pit of my stomach.

    I know for me I wanted and still want (another) biological child, but recently dh and I have been talking more about adoption. The more we discuss it the more that it is starting to just feel right as an option for us in the future.

    I really hope one of the other paths will open up for you and soon, having more options such as embryo adoption or donor eggs could be the right path for you. It is good to have more options so you don't feel stuck and helpless (like we all have at some point).

    I honestly just hate hearing this, it ruins my day and you deserve to be a mom sooo bad. It's not fair at all. I'm praying that God will open the doors to the right path for you and to give you much peace and comfort throughout this process as possible. I don't know about all of you but seeing those helpless little children in the media that are hurt and starving in Haiti right now speaks to me a lot. Take care sweetie!

    Default Looking ...

    Hello everyone,

    I don't thing I have posted here before? Or maybe my mind has forgotten. But I was looking for a place to share with other ladies about Embryo Adoption/Donation. I know it's not the full IVF cycle like this treat is but would it be considered like an FET cycle where the use of DE and DS would happened? If so could I join the group? If not can you lead me to a group more suitable please?

    Thanks.

    Welcome Helene... As far as I know this thread is for all types of ivf or fet. I had ivf done and it failed then moved on to natural fet which means they went on my natural cycle and it worked...

    Good luck, praying this works for you hun.

    thanks melissa. I am completely open to adoption and DH is open to it as well. but he still wants to do everything we can to have our own child before we move to that route. He desperately wants a bio child bc he is the only male to be able to keep his family line going.

    I know how you feel, DH is the only son of an only son. It was hard to have to go donor but that was our only option.

    I am so, so sorry, Robin.

    I am going to pray for you to find some peace. I know donor is not the route many people want to go, but I really have seen so many happy success stories from donor eggs or sperm...I pray that you get your miracle, girl. I am so, so sorry that you have to go through this.

    I couldn't, and didn't

    After our first IUI, I called everyone in my family and yelled "IT WORKED!!! IT ACTUALLY WORKED!!!"

    Then I went to work and put printed out pictures of the positive pregnancy test on everyone's desk since they all knew we had done the IUI.

    Big congratulations to you!!!!

    I was totally freaked out by this because I hadn't ovulated on my own naturally at a decent time in FOREVER!!! lol. Dr was confident that with my hormone meds I would be fine. So I went in for baseline, then went in 12-13 days later and I produced an eggie all on my own. So after they checked my levels, they had me trigger with Ovidrel 2 days later (I believe it was 2 days after) and 5 days after ovulating I had my transfer. Day before transfer I had another u/s to make sure my lining was great and then I had my transfer. The only med I was on is the progesterone shots starting ovulation day. That was it. It was super easy, easier than clomid or any other medicated cycles ;-) good luck!!!

    Have you considered injectable meds? they seem to produce more follies than clomid. Best of luck. Keep your chin up. I know that feeling. It sucks.

    I am so sorry. you are in my prayers. i will pray God gives you (and all of us) the strenght to continue trying. Best of luck in your new game plan.
