The RE said the lining was nice and thick (12mm)...any one know what's considered normal?

He was very pleased with the follies. I had two on the left measuring 29mm and 30mm and one on the right at 22mm.

However, I did get some bad news. The post-coital test was awful. Pretty much all of the sperm were dead. I feel like such a failure. I feel...betrayed. First I got pregnant really easily. Heck, Dominic was a bcp baby. I just couldn't carry. Then my body decided to stop ovulating. I got over that with the theory at least we'll still be conceiving at home...even if we need meds to get me there. But now my body decides to KILL the sperm. Really, is this some sort of cruel joke? Because, I'm not finding it at all funny.

So, anyway, our plan very quickly changed. We're triggering at home tonight (instead of in office this morning) and going in Friday for an IUI. Luckily DH has to do some work that requires the network to go offline so he had scheduled to work Friday night for today. (As opposed to his usual just switching days which wouldn't have allowed for the IUI.)

I feel as though I'm grieving in a way. Grieving my "natural" conception. Betrayed by the fact that my body can't do a single thing right. Terrified, knowing that even if we do conceive on this plan, there is no assurance that I'm even going to be able to carry the pregnancy to term. We never did get an answer about WHY I kept miscarrying.

This is our last ditch effort. We've already agreed no IVF. If this doesn't work, we're done. (Of course, I don't know how many IUIs we'll agree too...)

Crossing all of my crossables that this will be the last time you have to bother with any fertility treatments! With follies like that you stand a great chance of getting pregnant this month. I'm sorry it's been so rough for you though.

Thanks ladies! It wasn't too bad. A little crampy afterwords but not horrible.

DH went with me and got up and kissed me as soon as the doctor left the room. It was emotional as I still hadn't had much time to process it and accept it, but I know we made the right choice. Before getting started the RE told me he hoped that I wouldn't be back. I told him I probably would be but hopefully not for a long time! Then as he was leaving the room he wished us luck.

I really hope this is it. 4 years (1 of not ttc, but oopsie pg anyway, 2 of actively ttc, and 1 of ntnp) is way too long for me!

How are you feeling? The 2ww is almost done. Are you testing.. or holding out?

I can't wait.. never could. I really hope there is a warm little bean nestling in for the long haul.

I'm feeling ! lol I can't get enough to eat! I am 7dpo today (9dp trigger) and it's taking forever. I'm only testing until the trigger's gone then I'll wait until AF's due (maybe late).
