CD1, Cycle #25, IUI Cycle #2

Thanks for the support ladies, means alot.

Yesterday was rough, I'd planned an inspection yesterday to keep me busy as I knew i'd just mope around if I was working at home. I started spotting mid afternoon during the inspection. I fought back tears but held it together. I did really well until about 9pm last night when I got a message on fb. Remember I mentioned friends of our were pg again after having a loss, well the girl sent me a fb message with ultrasound pictures and a message written, as if from the baby's perspective. It broke me. I literally opened it up and burst into tears, was inconsolable. DF was at work so couldnt answer his phone and my two best friends who knew about the IUI didnt pick up their phones either. I got pretty worked up but eventually talked myself down after meg came and gave me a lick and a cuddle. DF called me back a bit later and I got a little upset again but did ok, he was pretty annoyed theyd sent the message not knowing whether the IUI worked or not. I just kept saying it wasnt their fault I couldnt get pg.

I got some sleep last night, not much, but some. We have tickets to go and see Robbie Williams in concert in Manchester tonight. this morning I said that if the tickets hadnt cost so much I wouldnt want to go, but now i'm feeling a bit better and think it might help to cheer me up.

I finally spoke with the nurse at the fertility clinic - after calling about 10 times this morning. I am THE worst patient ever! Plan is to go ahead with IUI#2, I start taking Clomid 50mg again today - through till CD6. First scan CD12 which is 29th June at 9.45am. We'll go from there. We talked about adding/changing anything and she said they wouldnt do anything different after just 1 failed IUI if nothing abnormal cropped up - which it didnt. She said after 3 tries with no success, theyd consider moving to injectibles with IUI. (I am entitled to 6 IUIs on the NHS). She said try not to feel too disheartened after 1 try, she said for most women its try #2 or #3 that works. I said ye, its easy to say but its not just 1 IUI, itll be cycle #25 this time around. She was really understanding.

Anyway, I better pull my socks up and move on - need to find some more positivity for IUI #2 so any you ladies can share will be appreciated. I'm still feeling pretty delicate and will likely for a few more days but will be around as much as I feel I can be. you all

I'm so sorry Jen! I completely understand. I was devastated after our failed IUI. My SIL had just found out the week before that she was pregnant again. I was at her house for the week when my period started. She has been sending me pictures of her newborn son. I love him and cannot wait to meet him next week but I often cry when I receive the pictures. I definitely think going to the concert will be good for you. I hope you guys have fun! Pamper yourself a little. :-) We are all here for you!

Jen, you are a very very very strong woman! You do so much just by being here and giving all of us info that the least we could do is support you through this! You will have your beautiful little family soon and I truly believe that. I am glad to hear that your nurse was understanding. IT's always good to hear that since it is so rare. I like Caitlin's idea of you going to pamper yourself. I think it will do some good for you. Here's to fingers crossed for IUI #2 working for you! If I was there we could have a girls night, full of crying, wine, probably chocolate and a good amount of laughs and hugs!!! Keep your head up lady, I know you can but remember that it is ok to have your down times and to cry. IT is completely healthy and most of the time very much needed!! We all love you and are here for you.

CD4, Cycle #25, IUI Cycle #2

Nothing much to report, boring CD4. Still taking the Clomid - nto feeling any side effects yet thankfully.

I think we're due some thunder and lightening here - its been so muggy, close and warm today and its still feeling close now at 23.25 at night! At least with DF being away tonight I can sleep with the windows open!

I just told one of my bffs that the IUI failed - this was the message I got back "awww f*ck sake, has everything crossed for you. it will happen hun, i dunno how or how long but it will and you will be a great mum when it does. Love u" I really dont know what I'd do without my friends

CD7

I'm not in a great place today, I woke up exhausted even though I feel like I slept ok. I've basically been a walking zombie all day i'm so tired. I'm feeling really low in mood to, maybe cos i;'m tired but I dunno.

I finished my Clomid yesterday and so far feeling ok, had a headache saturday but nothing some Paracetamol didnt deal with. Got my first scan on saturday, hopefully i'll have some good follies growing by then.

Looking at the calender, i'll be ready for testing around my birthday - 14th july. 15th july is our two year ttc milestone. As its my birthday me and DF are going to edinborough for the weekend so at least we'll be doing something nice, I just hope AF or a BFN doesnt spoil it for us.
