    Paula and Sassycagirl68,

    Thank you ladies so much for your help! I am currently working with my OBGYN and he will not do any of the tests mentioned above. He told me that if I want to do those tests, I would have to go to an RE. My RE charges $300.00 for the appointment alone!! DH and I are going to go broke soon with these medical bills. So I was trying to use my OB dr but after my conversation on Friday with his office, they stated that they were willing to put me on the 50mg of Clomid for 3 months and then up me to 100mg for the next three months. He said if we did not get a BFP then he would refer me out to an RE. Urrrggg I am so frustrated. Puala, I will PM you soon. I have so many questions for you. I am heading to bed now though.

    Sassycagirl68, Good luck to you and I hope you get some good results on the day 21 progesterone test. Keep us posted!

    Default Hoping 3rd Times the Charm

    3rd IUI cycle with Femara. Had ultrasound today. One big follie (20 mm). I trigger tonight, then we do IUI on Wednesday morning.

    If we're not successful this cycle then we're taking July & August off from medical assistance. My husband needs to do some travel for business and I figured this was a good opportunity for me to start a new workout/diet program and maybe take off about 10-15 pounds. Then if we don't have any success the "old fashioned" way, then in September we'll try a couple rounds of injectibles and IUI.

    Anyway, I'm praying the 3rd times the charm and this cycle is the one.

    I would start checking at CD 9, and you might want to check 2xs a day if they aren't going to US monitor. I have missed my surge by not checking twice a day.

    ICURN...Great news!!! It is so exciting!! Wed. is so close...best of luck

    Lisa...the trigger went very well. DH stepped up the the plate like a pro! I didn't even hurt. It is a bit sore today though, but the ovarian cramping makes me forget about it quickly. I am glad you shots are going well...I hope you get some great follicles!!

    My retrieval is tmw at 7AM...I hope I get a few good ones too. Wish me luck.

    Cheryl,

    I can't believe your ob won't do any those tests. Those tests really tell you a lot of info. Do you like your dr? Just asking because that would frustrate me. My previous dr wanted me to go immediately to a specialist w/o even trying!!! She still did the testing, not all, and put me on Clomid. I got pg in 4 months!!! Didn't last but I did. She was shocked. Anywho, changed after that and a few other things. I am sorry your dr won't do the tests. I am hoping for the best for you!!!

    Good luck Cariann!!! Don't be nervous, it is really very easy. They put in the speculum, insert this floppy "needle," then squirt it all in. You may feel pressure when the needle is inserted, possibly a little cramping, but it is over rather quickly. I will have #3, most likely on wednesday (tomorrow is my u/s, and possible trigger shot), and it doesn't really phase me anymore. Just keep positive thoughts, think about the beautiful baby you will have, and relax!! (Hope this all helps!! it's really not that bad, I was scared to death the 1st time, and DH couldn't be there with me so I was alone with the dr and nurse. Honestly, it was more uncomfortable feeling during the 2nd IUI when DH WAS there... but it's over fast, and you may have the results you want in the end!!)

    Good luck!!!

    ahh thanks guys!! nope i didnt end up doing the trigger shot.. i was gonna call today to see if i should but instead i got a positive opk! so if this iui doesnt work i will definitely ask for the trigger shot next time... i am thinking that this will be feeling like the hsg test i had done... if it is like that i will be fine... a little uncomfortable but not to bad! and my dh will not be able to be there either... he is in the marine corp and they are getting ready to go to iraq so they have been doing allot of training.. i am getting him out of some of it tomorrow so thank god they let him out for a minute! anyways... thanks again girls!!! im so glad i have someone i can talk and ask questions too! i will definitely be keeping you up to date! ill probably have a dozen more questions before this whole cycle is over with!!!

    Icurn, that is great news!!! Can't wait to hear the updates on your embies. Grow babies, grow!!!

    Lee Ann, thinking of you and hope all went well this morning. KUP!!

    Ladies, I am officially right behind you! Went in for CD3 monitoring yesterday and got the green light to start stims last night. I learned that I still ovulate while on bcp (seriously? and I still can't get pg? what's up with this body of mine??) and that lupron over suppresses me. So I am done with lupron, and they bumped my gonal-f up to 225 but left menopur at 75. I'll know more on Thursday when I go back for my next monitoring appointment.

    to all!

    I would like to join this thread, you all seem so supportive of each other.
    This is my story. My husband and I have been ttc for 3 years, or at least haven't been preventing for 3 years. We started our "fertility journey" last fall.
    My husband had a vericocele repair in December, with no significant changes to his count. So, we moved on to Clomid...thinking that's all we would start with. The doc encouraged us to do Clomid with IUI right away.
    This is our first round... We did Clomid days 3-7 and then Hcg shot on day 13, after an ultrasound. I had one good follicle. IUI was on day 15, and that was a week ago.
    They have me on progesterone and I feel very symptomatic...dizzy, hot flashes, moody and VERY tired.
    My husband feels like this is it, I pray he's right. I kinda feel it too, but I know I'm holding back to protect myself. I know God is in control no matter what, and that's what I keep clinging to.

    Got my beta results back yesterday...<2....

    AF today just to rub in the BFN. DH is wanting to move right ahead with IUI #2, but I really do not want to deal with the disappointment again - so I am not sure what I am going to do, but I have to figure it out quickly!

    Mal...It will all happen so quickly now!!! How exciting!!!

    Update on me is OK, but not so great. After the retrieval and fertilization we are only looking at 2 embies that are on the go. I think in stimming so long the lead embies were all past due and there were a lot of immature follicles. But I only need one for a baby!!

    My plan is when I get a call that both are ready...either Friday or Sunday...I will be putting both back.

    KC---I am just so sorry. Been there. 17 cycles, one of which was an iui.
