Hi Ladies,

I've been gone for a while on vacation but am back and getting caught up on everyone's stories. I missed this board while I was away.

Just a quick update on me - I went to my RE for a blood test yesterday and found out that my third IUI cycle failed. We don't want to try a fourth IUI so have set up a consultation with our RE to discuss a new plan (I'm assuming that we will move to IVF as soon as possible). So we will be doing a natural cycle this month. I hate the idea of "wasting" a whole month but it will be nice to have a month-long break from the meds and monitoring appointments (not to mention the cost of all of this!).

I'm so very sorry Jenn. I can only imagine how difficult this is. Stay optimistic, IVF has resulted in many BFPs!

I'm so sorry to hear about your BFN. SO sorry.
I think moving forward with IVF sounds like a good plan.
Also, having a month break will really help your emotional well-being before you do something so BIG, ya know.
Keeping you in my T&P.
KUP on what your doc says.
I'm excited for you!!

Im sorry about the BFN Jenn.
I hope you had a good vacation?

Good luck with IVF and enjoy this time away from all the meds, i know it might feel like a wasted cycle but this way your body will be well rested from all that stuff before you try IVF

I'm so sorry this IUI didn't work, Jenn. I really hope that the next plan is the one that results in your BFP.

I'm so sorry Jenn! I think if you're doing IVF next cycle then a month break will probably do you some good even though you don't want to waste a month, that way you will be totally ready for your BFP!!!

Awww man! I'm sorry about the BFN... that sucks!

A month off was always my biggest fear AND my best choice when it was all said and done. I LOVED coming back after some time away.

I hope you get a new plan in place soon so that we can start stalking you again!
