    Oddly enough, I DID read somewhere about the pineapple... and totally unrelated, I bought pineapple on Friday, so I will start eating it after the IUI tomorrow (Oh, and hubby saw the pineapple last time when I had my IUI done, and he thought I was crazy for eating it, and he ate half my pineapple!!!)

    Yes, it is normal for some people to fell crampy. Your uterus is used to receiving sperm in the unwashed form, so having it washed is almost like having a foreign body in there, so your body reacts to it by cramping, if that makes any sense?? That was how it was explained to me. Your uterus is not used to "clean": spermies

    The best thing to do is settle down with something to drink (non alcoholic of course!!), and watch tv or read a book, or even sleep!! You will feel much better in a little bit.


    I'm so glad I have IUI buddies this time!! The last two were killer on the wait, and I had no one to talk to about it.

    Oh, and Cariann, don't worry about skipping a cycle, DH and I did 2 IUI's, skipped last month because he was out of town, and are back to #3 this month. I think it is better because it gives your body a chance to rest. But I am hoping you won't need to worry about that!!

    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!
    I'm so sorry

    hi all!!! I am back The IUI went alright. A bit more painful this time. Apparently my cervix was tipped down today (sorry for TMI!!) so he had to use some tool to lift it up some (FYI- NOT FUN!!). DH's SA was down from last time, but not as bad as the first 1. I am hoping having the other doctor do it will give me a good chance

    so, my funny story of the appointment... I'm in the stirrups, he has the speculum in, then he uses the tongs or whatever to bring my cervix up, and I get the WORST urge to sneeze... I mean, we are talking full on, pee yourself sneezing!!! And I am sitting there scared to death cause I am worried that if I sneeze, the tools will pop out and hit the doctor, or that some gas would pass from one of the open areas down there... I mean, I am seriously freaking out!!! Then he put in the syringe thingy, and I totally lost all thoughts of sneezing...

    I was laughing sooo hard after he left because I kept having this image of speculum popping out and knocking him in the head,

    Transfer went beautiful! DH and my mom were there. It was such an emotional thing! We transferred 2! Out of 16~4 divided properly but they are not sure if the remainin 2 will be able to survive freezing! I am thinking~"We are not going to need them anyway!"
    One embry makes a baby!

    So happy the transfer went well, Icurn!!! I cannot imagine how it must feel knowing your little embies are in there... Sending sticky, sticky vibes your way!

    Lee Ann, how are your little ones doing? Hope they're busy dividing away!!

    I'm stimming along - thanks for asking. I had 10 follies at my CD3 eval on Monday, 11 today measuring right on schedule according to the u/s tech. I'll know more when I get the call from my RN later. Grow follies grow!

    What CD did you start stimming, Malf? What meds do they have you on?

    Just curious... I like reading the various protocols.

    Hey Lisa. I started stimming on CD3 after everything came back ok on baseline monitoring. I'm on 225 of Gonal-F and 75 of Menopur.

    Sounds like it's working! I just got the call, and I have E2 of 82, LH .44 and 11 antral follies, all of which looks GOOD they say. All 11 follies are under 10mm, but they tell me that's ok since I've had only 3d of stims. My only real concern is my lining being 4.5 when it needs to get above 8. This was an issue during my IUI, too. Please send thick thoughts my way, girls! :pray:

    Hello ladies!
    There are quite a few of us in here now! Sorry I haven't been writing much...I do read and stay in the loop with you ladies!!! I'm in the 1ww starting today...no symptoms...not really paying much attention. (big change for me...I usually obsess!) I've been busy working in my studio...I'm going to start selling my stained glass work in my mom's store. I'm pretty excited about it...it really keeps my mind off of everything. We find out in one week if we celebrate a BFP or celebrate sending in our adoption application! I'm excited either way. The application is almost completely finished so we'll be ready by next week if we need it.

    Hello and good luck to all of you new ladies! I hope we all get exactly what we want out of all of this!!!

    Good luck to those of you who have been here for a while too! I'll be lurking!!!

    Good luck to you all ladies! I did IUI my last 2 cycles, but am skipping this cycle due to a cyst that ruptured last week. If I don't get BFP all on my own, I will be doing another IUI next month. I am so anxious to see some success stories on this thread!

    Just a quick note. I was on Clomid for 4 months. The best month that I had was the month that I exercised a lot. Not to the point of pain but about a hour a day 5 days a week. I did not exercise much the rest of the time because one month I was sick and one month I was on vactation. My advice to you would be to exercise as much as possible, get up and move around especially those with PCOS. It really helps.

    Lisa I am waiting for CD 1 to get here finished my 21 days of BC to get rid of right sided cyst on Tues pm. So with any luck AF is right around the corner and then we can start our stims. We are actually very excited about this and hoping that this will lead to some good results. I will keep you all updated, work is really crazy and is keeping me working lots of extra shifts right now.
