Sounds like you will have your hands full for the next 3 weeks. Hopefully it will distract you from your IPS and the tww.

I'm going to test on Friday. However, I started getting my "just-under-a-week-till-AF-nighttime-cramps" so I'm not too hopeful. But Friday is the day. I got a date for my consent signing for IUI though, so that makes me feel a little better. November 13th is the date! Which means I'll be able to fit in one IUI before Christmas (provided the clinic isn't too busy - which I hope it's not).

Thanks Nicholle! I'm hoping the same . Also it would be nice to not to have to fork over the $2000 bucks (though I know that's a lot cheaper than IVF). My actual IUI will likely be around the 25th of November

CD 25 (12/13 DPO)

As, as expected, a stark white BFN this morning. I wasn't surprised, but it doesn't make it any less depressing. I temped because I figured if my temp had dropped I wouldn't bother testing, but it hadn't. I'm going to test again Sunday, and then AF will be here Monday or Tuesday. I'm in a crabby mood. I don't want to wait another month until IUI. I just want to be pregnant now. We all deserve to have our sticky BFPs now!

(There was a story in the news the other day about a girl giving birth on the floor of a jail. UGH. It kills me to read that sort of thing.)

Sorry for the depressing post, but I know you ladies know how it is sometimes. Hope you all have good weekends!

Ugh. Start of our last natural TTC cycle. I'm going to take a few days away from JM - I often like to hide the first few days of my cycle. I'll be back though! Talk to you ladies soon

Thanks ladies You warm my heart knowing you're thinking about me.

CD 19 (7ish DPO)

I'm back!

Sorry I've been MIA lately. I was just trying to take a step back from all things TTC, since this months we've sort of been BD every couple days, just enjoying it, not stressing about temps or OPKs or anything. I can estimate my O date based on symptoms but it's just a guess.

We had our consent signing for IUI on Tuesday. Had a good long talk with the RE about how we would start, and decided to do a completely unmedicated cycle (with no trigger shot) since we're still technically 'unexplained infertility'. DH's latest SA came back not nearly as good as the first, slightly low mobility. But I know how much that varies. It went down like 40% from last time! DH was shocked, and is now keen on taking vitamins, eating healthy, cutting back on booze etc., so that's a great outcome . So CD1 is due next weekend, I go in and pay the bill on CD1, and then starting CD10 I go in for daily LH blood tests. I expressed how inconsistent my results can be on OPKs so my RE wanted to use blood instead. So that's great. No ultrasounds or any other kind of monitoring this round. If IUI#1 doesn't work, we'll move onto IUI + Clomid for #2 which will be in January (we're buying a 'three-pack' of IUIs ).

I'm excited it's finally in action!

How is everyone doing?

Woo hoo! Glad that you are back!

We will be IUI buddies! I'm going medicated for this one, but not injectibles. If this doesn't work, we might do injectibles, but we might just go IVF. Hopefully it will work the first time for both of us!!! GL and KUP with all of the details!!!

I know how you feel, I was hoping that I didn't need MA either. But, sooo many women have their babies because of IUI, and hopefully we will be two of those ladies!!!! F/X'd that we are both successful right away!!!!

Thanks ladies

CD 24 (11ish DPO)

I caved and tested this morning. I'm not sure why I did it, I'm not sure what I was expecting to see, and sure enough, it was nothing. I wasn't even that upset, because it seemed silly that I even tested. Ha ha.

Otherwise, I'm just getting really excited about CD1 so I can call and get things booked! Hung out with SIL/BIL on the weekend/ They are TTC #2 (she was pregnant when I started TTC - one of those UGH moments ) and we were explaining about IUI to her. She seemed to assume that it would work right away, and I had to explain the success rates to her, and that it's not guarenteed etc. Hopefully she doesn't go overboard and get all excited for me before there is a reason to! She means well with her enthusiasm, but sometimes it's a bit much.

We have a busy week of dinners, get together, appointments etc.! Hopefully it just flies by and AF is here before I know it!! I wish I had a short work week like some of you ladies
