    Hi guys,

    sammy and twocam- so sorry about your results this month. That really crappy. I totally understand how disappointed and sad (and angry and impatient) you might be feeling. Big hugs to you both.
    Sammy- was that number two iui?
    Twocam- how are you feeling about Ivf?

    Thanks for all your kind words. I am doing pretty well. The curette much easier physically than I expected it might've been. I am really proud of myself for doing it as I was really petrified of the whole thing. I am so happy I did so well coming out of the general. That means I won't be anywhere near as scared if I have to go under the general for Ivf egg pickup. It is a relief to take away that fear of the general.

    I still have some mild cramping pain so it will be a quiet weekend ahead for me I think. My hot water bottle is my best friend!

    Emotionally I am a bit up and down. My two year old is helping me to go on and get out of bed.a few more days and I think I will be pretty good. I am shocked by how welli can cope with emotional pain now.... That's one thing infertility teaches you I guess.


    I talked to my hubby and we decided to wait a full cycle before continuing with any fertility attempts. My doc said we could begin immediately but I don't think we are strong enough yet. He said one more iui and then Ivf. I am not sure if Ivf will help though. In the past four months I have had one chemical pregnancy and one miscarriage. So it seems fertilisation isn't the problem- it is keeping it. Does Ivf help youtokeep a pregnancy or is it just for fertilisation mostly?

    keep well.

    Hi Katelyn, I'm so glad to hear from you Do take care to heal emotionally and physically before jumping back in the game.

    I have the same problem with implantation - 2 chemicals in 2 IUI cycles. The fertility specialist told me it's hard to know the cause, whether it's poor quality egg or whether there's an issue with implantation itself (I had excellent lining and progesterone levels both months). I guess there are several tests like NK killer cells that they can do before IVF but they aren't normally done. But you should ask your specialist, I gather each fertility clinic is different. Hugs!

    Hey Ladies,

    Katelyn im glad your doing ok. Taking a month of sounds like a good idea. Give yourselves time to accept what has happened and prepare yourself for another cycle. That way you wont feel an overwhelming mix of emotions if you just went straight into another cycle. Just take your time and let yourself recover. Here for you if you need to chat. I know i havent been through what you are going through but im told im an amazing listener.
    Yes that was cycle 2. So we are now into Cycle 3. Which im abit concerned about with moving next week with money.... But we shall see i guess!

    CD1 today. although ive got allllllll the bad signs of AF lol cramping sooooo bad and worst headache! So im just having a resting day today. We are moving next week, so i should be packing but thats the last thing i feel like doing. So im just relaxing on the couch today. My partner is at work, so im just chilling lol

    Twocam im so sorry about another chem. So is it now onto IVF? How do you both feel about that?



    Sammy

    Hi guys...we had our IVF consult, we are going to do 1 more IUI and then move straight on next month. Basically our FS said the success rates for IUI are very similar those first 3 cycles (about 15% per cycle) but after 3 it drops to virtually nil. We are now trying to decide which clinic we will go with for IVF.

    Hi GDY....I wouldn't say we're good with the way forward. But it just seems kind of inevitable. We only have 6 months left before our "no more TTC" deadline so I'm willing to give it everything until then. I figure that we will probably only get to do 1-2 rounds of IVF in that time anyway.

    Good luck with the IUI timing.

    Hi!

    Hoping you are all well!

    twocam- just wondering what you meant when you said that you only have six months until your ttc deadline. Is that a deadline that you have decided for yourself or is there some sort of medical deadline. Whatever the reason, I really am hoping with all my heart for you that you have success before that time .

    Sammy- good luck for some beautiful eggs on your scan.

    I am having some good days and some bad days at this stage. We had a lovely weekend catching up with family so I am feeling pretty good tonight. It's harder on those days when my husband is working but I am at home with my son.....my mind wanders a little too much and I start to get a bit upset sometimes. Overall though I am moving forward so life is good.

    Getting a little bit anxious to feel as though I am doing something towards achieving my goal. My husband and I agreed that we wouldnt do any fertility treatments this month but I feel like I would like to try naturally anyway. I talked to my hubby and he said that would be ok. You just never know I guess and my doc said it would be fine to try ASAP. I am thinking I will just buy an ovulation predictor test and see what happens. Part of my wants to skip the iui next month and just go straight for Ivf so we will have a greater chance of success. It would be so nice to have a successful pregnancy and leave this infertility drama behind us. Just one more child is all we would need to feel complete. That's only one egg and sperm required to change our lives forever. Surely it will happen for us!!!

    Ok enough from me for now. I will quit rambling.

    Katelyn I'm so glad you are starting to think forward. Personally I know the sadness doesn't go away, but I find it invading my thoughts less and less these days.

    Sammy...we're on exactly the same schedule, I have bloods Wednesday and then blood/scans several times in the week after that. And IUI should be the following week. Good luck hon!

    We had decided we will only try to TTC until I turn 42 later this year. After that we will either think about donor eggs or just enjoying what we have together.
