    IUI #7 all done. They checked and I did ovulate.

    Hoping the (1) Big juicy follicle is on it's way to meet with DH's 200 million sperm! also praying my right fallopian tube is open. (was opened by new doc in December).

    gng in on monday for my hcg booster.

    Also, ran to acupuncture. She told me to EAT LOADS OF Pineapple. So I just stocked up on my way home.

    Praying like mad, or will be back for IVF #2 soon. God bless you all. have a great day!

    BEST OF LUCK! When will they tell you? can you use your own, if you don't like the ones they choose?

    UGh. Isn't this a lovely game... this infertility??!! Anyway, mine has been late a few times too. They normally take me in for blood and then measure my #'s. They can normally predict if AF is on it's way. Did you get a blood test?

    I am a little worried. I have a short luteal phase. And am normally on Progesterone (prometrium) or with IVF the pio.

    This is the first time Doc had me take Hcg and will get my booster on Monday. he said he doesn't think I need Progesterone.

    does the Hcg help there? will it replace the need for progesterone?

    I always worry. And feel like when I leave the docs, I still have 300 questions I forgot to ask. Any help would be great.

    I will post in the IUI room too!

    That is was is so confusing. My cycles are extremely regular and I have had an ovarian cyst before and it never interfered with AF. I guess they will do a blood test if she doesn't show by Monday.

    Ive never heard of HCG helping with progesterone. Did he check your progesterone numbers? I would ask why he isnt concerned if it has been an issue in the past. It cant hurt, right?

    Hey girls. Been really busy lately. Work crap and such.....sigh. I have been,however,TRYING to keep up with all of you. So much goings on! Some of you gals are so close!

    AFM~ I'm just waiting on AF to get here so I can call my clinic. Today is day 27. Any other time it would be here. But of course that is a story I need not tell any of you.

    Keeping up with you all best I can.(pretty sure I'm ADD) I'll do better soon. Have a fantastic evening!

    AF was late for me. Didn't arrive until 6 days after my last BCP. That has NEVER happened. RE did blood work and was definitely able to tell that AF was on the way. When I went back to RE a few days later the nurse told me that I should have had AF within the past 2 days......and she was right. Your bloodwork will be able to tell what's going on. Good luck. Praying for AF to come quickly so you can start your protocol.

We'll see about that!! If I got even 8 proper follies I'd fall over with shock.

    U/S is on Monday and now I just wait it out. 2 more days of work and then hopefully I can spend a decadent weekend going back and reading the last few pages of this room!!
    I love that you only have to do one injection! I don't think Elonva is here in the states. I'll ask my RE when we meet with her. It would be a dream! Hope Monday comes here in a hurry so you can see how you're doing. Sending you lots of

I usually see a little dot and then wipe it, but just now I actually needed to get tissue. I'm not sure how much, if any of the menopur was mixed in the blood. I don't know if all of the stim went in. I just called the RE office to see what I should do. Hopefully they'll call me back by the time I get to work. I have 2 more vials left. My increased doses of menopur will be arriving this afternoon. Help
    I usually give myself shots in the belly, switching sides each time. I have gotten some blood before, but nothing major. I read below that you nicked a vein - glad everything is OK! It's hard being a human pincushion, but the payoff is BIG if it works!! Good luck!

    The injection costs almost 1000, which I think is around $1200. I think different countries price things differently, though. I wonder if it's out in the US yet, or only in Europe. If it really works the way they say it should, that will make the whole IVF thing a lot easier for everyone!
    I can't wait to find out if that medication is here in the states AND if it is an option for me. I'll let you know what my RE says at our next meeting (should be this month sometime, I hope)

    Hmmm...I've had cysts before, but nothing that has stopped a period. The only time I was late I was pregnant (I tested positive 6 days late). How late are you?

    I don't know. My acupuncturist said she's heard great things.. And said the women she's treated swear by it after ovulation or transfer. I ate pineapple all day thinking and praying for all of u. I will call doc to discuss progesterone tomorrow. I am still a little worried.

    OK, ladies i have to tell you something, dh and i did another IUI, we had our first beta on tuesday the 1st and the second one was today, unfortunatly it went from 43 down to 27 So this is now our 4th m/c, i am sorry i did not tell any of you what we were doing, i was hoping to wait until i was 12 weeks and then let you all know the good news, but i did not say anything for this reason. I am ok, i had a little bit of a meltdown today, even after 4 it does not get any easier. We are still going to ttc on our own, unfortunatly we cannot do another IUI, i am out of insurance money for the meds, so i could do another IUI itself, but i dont have 4 grand to do the meds. I actually ran out of meds and insurance for them at the end of this cycle, my re's office donated meds to me to finish the cycle. I was on progesterone this time, both the vag gel and the shots for the two weeks from the IUI, i guess we just got another bad egg. It was so hard not saying anything to you guys, but i did not want to get you all excited and then we lost it again. I guess i knew it would not make it, i actually got a positive test last thursday, i had the first beta done on tues, the hcg should have been over 100 and it was only 43. I tried to have hope, but i knew. I will still stay on here and support you ladies, and just pray for a natural bfp. Sorry for the downer ladies, i was really hoping i would have had some great news for you. I had it all planned out too, i have this cute Elmo that says expecting, i was going to put that in my siggy along with the ticker and see if you noticed, sigh oh well.

    I posted in IVF room too. I wish there was a IVF / IUI room!
    B/c the girls in both rooms are fantastic!
    I also have a short luteal phase. I have done both the hcg booster and the progesterone suppositories. The hcg boost worked to increase my LP to 14 days. The hcg boost improves the function of the corpus luteum (which is the follicle your egg came from). The corpus luteum produces progesterone which keeps your lining thick for implantation. The progesterone supplementation will also give you extra progesterone to keep your lining thick for the embryo to implant. My RE says it doesn't matter which you do, that they are equally effective. I tried both individually and when I didn't get a BFP I tried them together. My next cycle I will do an hcg booster and twice-daily progesterone suppositories.

    Hope this helps!!! And I'll be thinking of you in your 2ww!

    Thank you so much ladies, i wanted to tell you all about the iui, but was afraid this would happen again, and i feel like i let everybody down when they all know, my hope was to announce it at 12 weeks, or at least when we had a heartbeat.

I was on progesterone this time, both the vag gel and the shots for the two weeks from the IUI, i guess we just got another bad egg. It was so hard not saying anything to you guys, but i did not want to get you all excited and then we lost it again. I guess i knew it would not make it, i actually got a positive test last thursday, i had the first beta done on tues, the hcg should have been over 100 and it was only 43. I tried to have hope, but i knew. I will still stay on here and support you ladies, and just pray for a natural bfp. Sorry for the downer ladies, i was really hoping i would have had some great news for you. I had it all planned out too, i have this cute Elmo that says expecting, i was going to put that in my siggy along with the ticker and see if you noticed, sigh oh well.
    Oh Chris, I'm so sorry. You're such an amazing and wonderful woman. I pray and wish you much success with your natural cycle.
