Hey Becky, don't give up! Those insurance people are my least favourite people! They will take our money easily but when they have to pay up they will fight it like crazy. Not fair!

ps. you and I started our last cycle on the same day hehe. The difference is I didn't ovulate yet

Becky! You already know how PO'd I am at the insurance company. I can't believe (well, actually I can) that they are ignoring their own verbage when it comes to not being able to produce sperm (same sex couples). I'm glad that you and DH are still going thru with the procedure. You know you two are in my t&p's all the time that this will work for you on the first try. I still think it's a bunch of BS what the insurance company is doing.....it's not fair.

Thanks, ladies! We're not giving up, not on proceeding, and definitely not on appeals. We're hoping & praying that our IUI this next cycle will be successful, but we're still going to appeal this decision as it's just not fair. And I would hate for any other couple to go thru the same thing. DH & I were devastated finding out the news he was infertile, but the insurance denial on top of that was too much. I'll keep you all posted on where this goes.

now talk about getting nervous & excited all at the same time - I'm counting ahead and from knowing that my LP is 11 days (sometimes 12), this cycle will be ending next Sunday or Monday - basically less then a week from today. This is so close!!!

easier said then done to not be nervous. I'll have some distractions in what will be the 2WW. My Mom will be coming up to visit, and I'll be taking time off work to spend with her and I know we'll be busy. I'll be taking her around to see our various relatives as well as spoil her with shopping & movies. That should hopefully keep me from obsessing as much, shouldn't it??? And it would be so WONDERFUL to share news with her in person!!!!!! (now I'm really crossing my crossables that this works!!!!)

Thanks, ladies!! You all are the best!!!

Today is a mixed bag for me. It's nice & quiet for now, but I know that'll change soon. We have a retirement party to get set up for, and will have to run out to get the last minute stuff. Then have a meeting that was scheduled yesterday for this afternoon after the party. And it's not going to be a "fun" meeting either. In the middle of all this, I'll be in touch with my brother (probably via texts) on how my nephew's appointment is going. He sees the specialist today regarding his aneurysm, and we're hoping to get some good news. So, please keep him in your T&Ps today.

I'm 9DPO today, and if my cycle is consistent like it normally is my LP will only be 11 days, sometimes 12. Eeek, it's getting closer. I can already feel my tummy twisting up in knots. Silly Bek!!!

Thanks ladies & I'll keep you all posted!!!!

Don't be nervous! Just make sure you get those lil spermies there on time!

Nephew is in my t&p's. KUP when you can.

Well, I don't really have a definite update on my nephew other then this may not be as bad as we'd originally been told. The specialist looked at all the scans, and doesn't think it is an aneurysm. He does see the cyst-like masses on the back, and thinks this may be more of the same in the front. He's ordered a more in depth cat scan to be done, once the referral is given, and has lifted the restrictions of playing any kind of sports and bike riding. Yay!! So, we wait for now for more answers.

and with me & this cycle, I know I should be very happy that my LP has been getting longer, but I'm starting to get impatient now. Come on AF, show up already, so I can get this next cycle started!!!!

AF finally arrived for me this morning, and she's definitely letting me know she's here. So, now I'm waiting impatiently for the RE's office to open at 8:00 so I can make the appointment for Friday CD3 to begin the process. So, time for being excited & nervous all mixed together.

We are a go for this cycle! My u/s on Friday (CD3) showed 13 potential follies, and the nurse called and said my bloodwork was great. I'll be ordering the donor sperm today, and started the clomid Friday evening. Our tentative timeline is as follows:

Sat - July 11th - Monitoring appointment - hoping follies will be big enough to have the trigger injection this evening.

Mon - July 13th - 1st IUI

Tue - July 14th - 2nd IUI

Wed - July 29th - beta

Now I've never O'd around CD14, so I feel it's highly unlikely that my follies will be ready on Saturday. I usually O around CD19, but we'll know more next Saturday when the monitoring starts. I am taking clomid cd3-7 instead of cd5-9 when I took it before, so maybe it'll assist me in Oing earlier. I am getting more side effects from the clomid this time, that I didn't have before. Hopefully this difference means good things are coming!!!!

Thanks, Jess! I'm excited too!!! I got the call from the sperm bank yesterday afternoon that the vials have shipped!!! Yay!!! They gave me the FedEx tracking number, and those swimmers will be with my RE this afternoon. Wow!! It's just getting closer & closer. I'm so glad I'm off work tomorrow, as I don't know how I'll concentrate.

I was so surprised at Saturday's monitoring appointment!! My body was cooperating and working perfectly with the clomid. I had 1 huge follie on my right ovary - 19.3, my uterus lining was a little over 10 (which the doc said was perfect)!! Yay!!! I was terrified we'd either have no follies developing or I'd have alot. I did not want to have to choose to cancel the cycle, but DH & I had already determined that no more then 3 mature follies would be our cut off point. The doc was willing to consider up to 5 before he'd automatically cancel the cycle. So, we triggered Saturday evening. I had the 1st IUI yesterday at 11:30, and will have the 2nd one today at 10:00. Wow!!! It's unreal how fast everything is happening!!!!

Thanks ladies! I greatly appreciate all prayers, wishes, & dust!!! My 2nd IUI went very well yesterday. I had yet another doc who did this procedure, and I didn't even feel the catheter at all so I guess my cervix was opened up even more then the day before. The doc was very happy with the numbers. He indicated yesterday the count was 20mil & Sunday's was 19mil. He said typically with frozen sperm, the numbers are around 5mil. Wow!!! I guess our donor is a super donor with super fertile spermies!!! Come on little guys - SWIM!!! You can get thru the traffic jam (as Jess puts it). I started taking the progesterone today - twice a day. If we get that BFP, I'll be taking the progesterone until I reach 12 weeks. It all seems a bit unreal . . . I feel like pinching myself just to make sure this is actually happening.

I still feel like pinching myself, along with my head spinning & feeling like I'm in another world lately. It still seems so unreal. I usually try to ignore my chart, but can't seem to do that this time. My temps were pretty flat for a several days and then dropped some yesterday which was so depressing. But today, they jumped right back up and were a little higher then before! Wow!!! I didn't believe it at first that it was 98.29 so I took it again, and it was 98.30. So now I can't help but get my hopes up again!!! I almost pulled out a test to POAS, but decided to wait. I know, that's hard to hear for my pushers. I figured if the temps are high again tomorrow, I'll POAS and see what we get. It's probably still way too early . . .
