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 I haven’t updated in a while as things have been very busy. My 3rd timed intercourse cycle failed and we decided to move back to IUI. I started my cycle on June 5th as CD1 and now today, June 20th was CD16 and we did our IUI this morning! This month Dr. S started… Read More Cycle 4, IUI #1
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 honestly have always believed I have this issue. I finally asked Dr. S about doing a post-coital test… Read More CD12 Update…Here we are again
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. Due to all of the issues we were having we did not get to see a heartbeat. This concerns me. Everything else looked… Read More First Ultrasound

Honestly, I never thought in my wildest dreams that we would be here. IUI # 2 WORKED!! YAY!!… Read More IUI Success! I can’t believe this!
Wow, it’s been over two weeks since I last posted. I am slacking. There has not been a lot to report so I figured I would save it all for this post. To update on a few things, I am currently off all of my herbal supplements from Dr. John. I believe they truly helped… Read More IUI take 2!
Meme above is for me! How stupid was I to think this would actually work the first time? Well, let’s just say pretty stupid. I started out the TWW with a lot of calm and serene thoughts. I told myself that it most likely would not work, as this is our first time trying this.… Read More IUI 1…..TOTAL FAIL!
This morning was my follow up ultrasound and blood work. We still have the 2 follicles on the left side and they are officially ready to release some eggies!! I have one measuring at 18mm and another measuring at 20mm. This means they are at their maturity level. Dr. S had wanted them between 18… Read More IUI take 1, here we come!!!
So this morning I went in for my CD12 ultrasound and blood work. They usually start with the right ovary and it wasn’t looking good. I was beginning to have a minor silent freak out because my almost 14mm follie that we saw on Monday was no longer there. I was worried they were going… Read More CD12, On our Way
Today would technically be CD16 but since I kind of started over with the letrozole I guess it’s technically only CD9. Whatever, I don’t even know anymore so not really sure why I am still counting. I guess I just want some feeling of control. That’s been my biggest struggle with this is I feel… Read More CD16, or CD9, who knows anymore!!
