    Yay your man is back!

    Im doing pretty well actually. Given we postponed IUI until May we got one more go at trying naturally - but hubby has a problem with his "equipment" (he is on a waiting list to see a urologist to get it fixed) so he was only able to give it 1 go. I have been prettty acceptin gof it this time, where as last time he was able to try twice but not the third time and I sobbed my heart out. But I am still urging him to try again tomorrow. "yes it hurts you, but if we dont get pregnant now then I have daily injectins, blood tests, internal examinations, and IUI with speculum which REALLY hurts me! SUCK IT UP!" lol And that's me being more accepting haha!

    Really hoping we can try again tomorrow. But I have no idea when I'm ovulating! My calculation is different from the app on my phone. I tried LH tests and they seemed useless. And I dont know how long the mucous looks good for, or how long you are fertile when you notice it looks good.

    At least I warned my boss that I will be having a lot of medical appointments and maybe arriving 15 mins late to work some days and she was ok with me using flex.

    OIC - sorry you feel it isnt happening this cycle I hope IVF works for you! I'd love to now how different you find the process as i really wonder what the point of IUI is!

    I've given up on this cycle. BFNs for 6 days now. Blood test is on Friday. At least i'm prepared for the answer. And i'm sick of the progesterone pessaries! think it's given me a touch of the itches ARGH!
    We've decided to switch to IVF too! I'm feeling that if i'm going through all of this, then i want better odds! Glad that we started out this way though, a good learning experience. Definitely having the next cycle off ART though! Need a break! (and it's only been 2 cycles!!) Would have been great if it worked but now i'm more confident that i can handle the big bad world of IVF!!

    SJ when do you think you will start? Do you need to see the FS again or meet up with the nurse and get drugs and instructions?

    Have an aweful headache today tht i just cant shake, don't want to take any thing but panadol just incase. making me feel even more blargh.

    Hope you're doing well!

    SJ did you have a good birthday in the end?

    Hello lovely ladies! Sorry I have been absent. Life got in the way!! We went away, I barely had signal came back to work and just settling back into routine now. I have been pretty stressed because I work for the federal government and my job might be in the firing line. It's so stressful. Just what I need! :|
    ANYWAY, how are you both going? Sorry to hear that you got a BFN again but I'm keeping everything crossed for both of you this cycle! Give me the details

    DH and I have changed our fertility centre. Believe it or not I started the contraceptive pill earlier this week. Seems *** backwards but they use it to get your injection cycle perfect for IVF apparently. At the clinic I'm at now anyway. I don't believe everyone does. Anyway, no chance of pregnancy this month lol
    I start IVF injections around the start of June and have egg collection on June 16 all going well. Insem will be the 20th, also all going well. DH will be heading over to Brunei in the next week or so and has told his work that he has to be back, no exceptions! He might be in the US the cycle after, so if it doesn't work this time he will have to leave his goods in the freezer lol

    Anyway, hope you both are well!
    Sending big hugs your way!

    SJ89 - glad you had a good break and sorry its stressful at work! My hubby has not been able to get a job longer than contracts of a few weeks, for over a year now, so I am the breadwinner - it stresses me out because I dont know how long this will go on and because I dont want to be forced to go back to work right after having a baby! My work is also stressful as we are down one staff member which leaves me, in that specific role only half the week, to try and fit more work in. Even when I dont work harder I still carry the s tress of the never ending work being given to me.

    I had my first IUI today! Feel a bit crampy or something though. Bring on the weekend!

    Furbabymum - that's awful about DH!! Is it to do with the government as well. It is definitely another stress that is NOT required during this process. I hope he finds something more permanent soon, so that you can enjoy MAT leave!
    So so soooo exciting that you just had IUI! Every being in my body is hoping this works for you!!! Keep us posted on how you are going. From the moment I had IUI pretty much until a couple days before I got my period, I was cramping. Maybe I'm just really sensative. Dunno, anyway goodluck!!! 😇

    Iv to give myself a shot of pregnal I think its called on oct 1st and 5th.

    Im in qld, brisbane you?

    Its all so nerve racking all the lead up and I dont think the 2ww will be any better lol

    Good luck! !
    2cute4u85 what did your hubby do to increase his motility - I have so many issues in regards to fertility myself - and my hubby has low motility (4 times the average volume *fist pump* according to him!). I know it only takes 1 swimmer to get you pregnant but I would like my hubbies swimmers to be at their best!

    Hi BeckG7

    I have confirmed PCOS and scar tissue on my cervix so that paired with hubbies low motility means we have been advised that IUI is our best shot at getting pregnant.

    I know it only takes one good swimmer, but its been such a long journey to get here I want to give it our best go. So if what you did worked for your husband I'd like to let my hubby know

    @BeckG7 I am kind of shocked that they would recommend IUI if your hubby isn't great. I also suffer from PCOS and my husband is perfect in the swimmers department and my specialist gave us a low success rate and it didn't work.

    But your FS knows your case best!! I have moved over to IVF now and am actually stimming for that at the moment. Just from what I have read and been told I thought the best option for male problems was IVF it ICSI.

    Hopefully some of the other ladies can help you out. When do u start IUI? Are u stimming or on clomid?
    GL and I hope you are lucky with it!! ☺️
