I will definitely FB you about my appt! Gosh, I'm sorry about the hsg - it sounds terrible - definitely not what I experienced, but at least you got it over with and you won't have to do it again.

I'll be patiently waiting to hear about everything on saturday...any clue as to how many follies you have???

Best of luck.....

Cd 13-
Today was an interesting day. I was driving to work and i felt like i was going to pass out while driving. it was like things were closing in on me. I was shaking and feeling sick. it was crazy. I stopped and got a coke and that made me feel yucky too. I got to work and ate a bit and felt better after about 10 minutes. Then we had staff meeting, where I learned i am being transferred, i guess you would say...but its a good thing! Then I get a hot flash...all in all i was a mess today. I have had a ton of EWCM, which it has been months since I have had much to report. im hoping that i am not about O, i gotta wait til monday!

Lee Ann- I have no clue about Follies, but i do have that appt tomorrow and hopefully i will learn more. I will FB you this weekend. And yes, my hsg hurt so badly. It is making me nervous about the IUI. the dr who did the HSG was so rough too. i am going to tell Santa to take it easy on me this time around!

I'm sorry that your HSG was a painful experience, but thankfully it was clear! Good luck with the IUI!

This morning we had our appt. We did an ultra sound and we have 2 large eggs and 1 medium egg(there were others but they were tiny). He said they looked perfect. I don't know the size, I was kinda amazed by looking at the follicles and got distracted. I know the big was 25 x something...can't remember exactly. My uterine lining was a 10 and he said they want it to be atleast a 6, so that was good too.
I got the shot in the belly. Funny thing was--the huge needle it came with---was the mixing needle...they used a tiny diabetic needle. the shot didn't hurt a bit, but it is sore. It was kinda funny that I had pumped myself up so much for that big needle, then it was a tiny little thing!
as far as symptons-- I had alot of EWCm yesterday and nothing really today. I am feeling crampy a bit like O is near...We are doing IUI Monday at 7:30! For once in the process I am excited. I feel like my body did what it was supposed too and now we just have to get those spermies to their home!

Today was the day of the IUI and is the day of our 2nd anniversary!
The IUI was a BREEZE--- i literally felt NOTHING. We were able to collect 35 million spermies...YAY! that number is on the low side of things, but the dr. said he was happy with that number. Im thinking if 1 out 35 million can't find that egg...they just aren't looking hard enough...LOL!

I will go back next monday for a progesterone test and now I officially start the 2ww!!!!!

CD 17 (2-3 days DPO)
Well there is nothing to report on the home front. i was sorta crampy yesterday, but i just chalked it up to gas pains. those are very confusing--im sure you all know.
I had some shocking news on monday. I had an abnormal pap and I have a consultation to learn more about whats going on. Im probably not going to get into the details of that, but PM me if you have questions about it. I want to keep my journal informative about IUI for the next person who might be going through the same thing.
I will update the PG thing in a few days. I wish i had ssomething great to report...maybe soon i will!
have a great day!

cd 19- 5dp IUI
well i don't know if these really symptoms, but theres been some strange things going on. 1st--what i am labeling as "nipple weirdness" i will have this random pain in 1 nipple, then within minutes, i get it on the other side. its just weirdness...i can't really describe it. strange, i know. and i am having lots of CM, for me. I never have alot, and its creamy/lotiony. but i did produce 2 large eggs, 1 medium and a bunch of little fries, so im sure all that is probably producing some CM just in general and besides my estrogen has been through the roof.
on another note, my insurance, which i was told would not cover anything, has covered atleast 1/2 of all the procedures so far. not sure if that has to with the fact that we had already met our deductable or not, but its nice to see them kick in a little bit. i haven't done the math on all the iui stuff, but its not near what they told us it would be.

I had a dr. appt to check my progesterone to see if i ovulated. They said they like to see it atleast a 5...i was 32! So i did def ovulate and the clomid did work just right. i plan on testing this weekend, I am off. If Af doesn't start by cd 35, i will call them and let them know. otherwise, I will call on my first full flow day and start on clomid again-i guess. fingers are crossed!

So when are you planning to test? You know, I am going to Vegas from Nov. 22 to Nov. 26 and I will not have access to a computer.....how craptastic is that.

I'm still rooting for you

Lee Ann, I think i might test friday with a FR just to clear my mind. but now i feel like AF is about to start. I just feel weird. im worried that its going to be a period from hell, given all the procedures, medicines and stress my body has been through this month. I don't know what is going on with my body. For the first time since we started TTC, i feel like i don't have a clue as to whats going on. i think doing IUI is more stressful than naturally ttc. of course everything is running through my mind as what needs to be done differently? what am i going to do about the other medical issues i have going on...arrghhh....

today i feel like i am getting a cold. i feel awful. im kinda afraid to take anything, but i am def. going to be struggling today. I took a pg test last night...lol, i know its way early and of course it was negative. i left it out (gross i know) and this a.m. i went to throw it away and it looked like a tiny faint shadow. im sure if anything it was an evap. it didn't even get me excited. I had a thought. every month about this time, I run a low grade fever and feel like poopy. im going to bring it up to my dr. what if my body is fighting it off, thinking its some sort of infection or something like that? that would be my luck, right?

I think the first IUI is probably the most stressful, being that it is something totally new. I got negatives early on, so keep your chin up. Hope you start feeling better.

well, not sure if this considered cd 1 or not, but AF is def. here. The iui was a bust. I really feel like we just blew $1000 (glad i had the hsg, but other $1000, no good). I know lots of women are un successful with iui at first but it is a big bummer.
I will call my dr monday and see what are next step is. I have some other medical issues going on, so its going to be a delicate month. not sure what the plan will be. anyways. I will update monday.
