We had our 3rd IUI for baby #2 done on Thursday, August 23. We had a 23mm follicle on the right and a 16mm on the left. I have never had two follies so far apart in size before. I feel like that was going against us. I also ended up with a YI the… Read More Cycle 6 IUI #3
August 19th was 5 years since I was first officially diagnosed with PCOS. 5 years battling infertility. And my fight is still not over. Not sure if it will ever be. August 19, 2013 I went to planned parenthood because I did not have any health insurance at the time and had not had… Read More 5 Long Years!
So our IUI failed. I knew it was a failure by this past Saturday when I tested at 10dpiui and it was negative. I tried to convince myself I had seen a slight line but it wasn’t really there. I stopped my progesterone on Tuesday by not taking my nightly pill. I went in yesterday,… Read More Cycle 5 here we come!

Well today marks CD12 of cycle #3 of timed intercourse. I am not hopeful that this will work. I am pretty sure my CM is creating a hostile environment for the sperm and killing them off.

I keep trying to tell myself I cannot let this consume me like it did. And in a sense,… Read More Worries and Fears this time around

Well, I am back. I am really hoping to stay this time and post again more frequently. It has been almost a year since my last post.

Yesterday, June 28th was our follow up ultrasound. I was 7w2d and I was really nervous. I have been on pins and needles since last Tuesday’s appointment. I was worried to death that since we had yet to hear the heartbeat, that there was not going to be one. I know, be positive you say,… Read More Heartbeat=The best sound in the WORLD!
Well on Tuesday morning, 6w2d (6 weeks, 2 days) we went in for our first ultrasound. They were having problems finding my uterus vaginally so they had to do the abdominal ultrasound.
