Cycle #16, CD 5

Went to see Journey with Loverboy and Pat Benetar on Wednesday night. We went with a large group of people and had an amazing time. Got a little tipsy and danced the night away until we went back to our friends hotel room and stayed there until 3:30am. Seriously, one of the best nights that I had in awhile! Well, the concert was in Columbus and I had my u/s and blood draw in Dayton at 11am. So I got up at 8am to drive back to Dayton. Plus it was fasting bw, so I couldn't eat anything that next morning. Then we ran some errands, got lunch and took naps!

Again, the u/s went well and the bw is pending. I have my HSG on Monday, so hopefully that will be normal/clear as well!

Looking forward to a relaxing weekend. Hope everyone else has a great weekend!!!

Cycle # 16, CD 9

Well, as I posted on the main board, my HSG went really well. I did have spotting until last night. It was interesting, it looked very very different from AF. I have f/u labs on Thursday and then an u/s on Saturday. I'm becoming very optimistic that we will be able to do IUI this cycle!!!! I will be picking up my ovidrel this week before my appt on Saturday. It stinks that it costs $200 (as I need 2 shots)! Oh well, if it gets me a sticky BFP, it won't matter in the end and it's still a lot cheaper than IVF! I'll know more about the impending IUI, i.e. insemination, shot, etc...on Saturday!!!

I had a wonderful long weekend. Of course, it was busier than expected and we had more outings than I anticipated, but it was still wonderful! I'm very happy that I only have a 4 day work week and next week, I only have a three day work week!

200 is much better than 20k! Friend at work was telling me her husband and her have been trying for almost 9 years and now they're trying to save up for IFV... and the doc told her it'd probably take 3+ chances at 20k a pop... Hope it sticks for you though

Cycle # 16, cd 11

I am not feeling well today. It started last night. I had an upset stomach, which turned into diarrhea. I also had it this morning. I'm not sure if I'm sick or if its the antibiotics that I'm taking. I started doxycycline on Sunday for the HSG. Sadly, I'm allergic to a lot of antibiotics--i.e. hospital, breathing machine, etc.... The ones I'm not allergic to, give me intestinal problems, hence the diarrhea (I always try my best not to take antibiotics!) I'm feeling very drained because of this. I also had bw drawn today, so that may be another reason why I feel weak. I'm at work, but I just want to go home. The worst part about this is that I will be ovulating soon! DH travels a lot and is always worried about getting sick, if I tell him I'm not feeling well, he may not want to BD. I think I'll tell him that it's the medications, so he'll still be up for it tonight! I'll probably take it easy most of the day and not work out tonight so that I can feel better.

I swear, of course I get sick right before the holidays and IUI!

Yep! At the HSG on Monday the RE wanted me to postpone the day 10 u/s to a day 12 u/s, which is Saturday. If the follies look ripe then I will likely take the HCG shot one night next week, followed by the insemination. Of course, I have to wait for Saturday to know if it's definitely a go and what day we will have IUI. I hope that we can do it on Tuesday, as next week is our Thanksgiving. We're travelling to Pittsburgh on Thursday and planning to stay there until Saturday morning. Of course we will come back early if needed for IUI, but I'm hoping my follies will be nice and ripe and I can be inseminated early next week!

Cycle # 16, cd 12

So yesterday after work I went to DH's office, as I haven't seen it yet. DH works for the Air Force and used to work in a rather secret program where only those workers who needed access to the floor could enter, meaning I couldn't see his office. He worked in that program for 7 years. Now he is the lead structures engineer for the F-35. We sell those planes to other countries, so not as secret.

Well, anyhow...I toured his office and talked with his boss. My DH has worked for this man before, so I know him and his family pretty well. Well, DH's boss adopted their son. They couldn't have children, because his wife had a hysterectomy in college (not sure why, not my place to ask). My DH told his boss (and some other close friends) about our ttcing, because DH travels a lot for his job and wants to stay at home, as much as possible for our fertile time. Well, DH's boss pulled us into the office and talked all about their adoption experience. I'm so happy that they had a wonderful experience, and their son is awesome--he's in college now. And though I'm happy for them, I really don't want to think about adoption at this time. I know that it's a possibility that we may not be able to have children of our own, but I think it's too soon to think about these things. I'm still excited about IUI and then IVF. I told DH this and he agreed, but did remind me that we might have to think about it. And though, I agree, I'm optimistic that MA will work. Of course, now I'm worried that I'm too optimistic. Just thinking about the possibility of not having our own children makes me really sad, so I'm going to try to keep a positive attitude and hope that IUI or IVF works for us. Of course, if this fails, then adoption will likely happen.



Thanks for reading ladies, I know this is a long one!

First I just want to say how I am for you to be trying IUI!!! I will say lots of prayers that it will work for you!

Secondly, I completely understand how you are feeling. It's so hard not get your hopes when you are taking a new exciting step. KUP.

I can say that I definitely understand how you feel regarding the adoption option. Both my brother and I are adopted and my mom was always bringing up the "well, you can always adopt!"... but I didn't WANT to, and honestly, it wasn't an option I would even consider ...

However, we're all waiting for that BFP when you IUI

I also get the adoption thing. My brother and I are both adopted, so people who are open to it will always have a special place in my heart. I am so freakin excited for your IUI on Monday!!!

So I think the HCG shot is working! I'm having some pre-O symptoms, high CP, EWCM and increased sex drive. Too bad I can't BD with DH, as he needs to conserve his goods for tomorrow's IUI.

Just wanted to note that I'm proud of myself for sticking to our budget. DH and I started budgeting to save money and pay debt. Last night, friends of ours invited us onto their party bus to celebrate our friend's 30th birthday. We declined, though we knew we would have a great time, we just didn't have it budgeted.

That is all for now. Still have a busy weekend planned, work-out, movie, dinner with friends....

ooooh, I didn't know you had a journal! Good luck with your IUI tomorrow!

Oh, and I know about hiding pregnancy tickers in here, but let me know if I should hide the child ticker when posting in here. I'm not sure about the rules on that, but wanted to offer support since I saw you had a journal.
