AF should arrive any day now, and after we plan to get started with our first IUI! I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. My husband has a very low sperm count, and our RE feels like IUI will give us a good shot at getting pregnant without spending tons of money (because this is all out of pocket for us). Also, hubby has been taking Fertility Blend for Men and Clomid (25mg/daily) for the past 6 weeks. On CD5-9 I'll take Clomid (100mg/daily), then go in for an ultrasound CD13,14or 15 to check the size of my follicle(s), he'll tell me when to take my trigger shot, I'll take the shot, then 36 hours later I'll be doing the IUI! Wish me luck.

Ya ya YA! AF finally showed up today. I've never been so happy to see her! I'll start Clomid (100 mg) CD5-9, then I'll be going in for an ultrasound CD14 (Nov 5th) to see when my IUI will be! I'll update when there is an update!

Today I had my CD14 follicle check ultrasound. I have 3 follicles that will be "ripe" by tomorrow, which is when they want me to use the HCG trigger shot, and 1 possible (1.5,1.6,1.7,2.0), and I'll have IUI#1 Friday 11/8. I will start daily progesterone suppositories Saturday, and I have a pregnancy check appointment 11/21 to see if my IUI worked! I'm really excited right now, and I hope everything goes smoothly and is successful.

I think this is going to be a great month!!

Not sure if anyone is even following this thread, but I just wanted to update it because I hate finding these open threads. IUI#1 didn't work out. And they found a cyst on my right ovary, a possible side effect of the Clomid, so we're on a forced break until the beginning of the year. IUI #2 should be sometime around 1/8/14.

Hey Jennifer! I've read your posts and I wanted to wish you luck in January! We have our first IUI scheduled for this Saturday! So excited, fingers crossed! My husband has very low motility so we are hopeful!
