I've been lurking for awhile but it's time I said hello
I triggered last night. Been on Tamoxifen (Clomid equivalent) CD2-10), FSH inj (25iu CD5-8; then 50iu CD9-15). Yesterday was CD 16 with a 9.4mm lining and 1 x follicle 18mm.
We are doing 'natural' fertilization, so it's been DH turn to keep up his end of the bargain. Mam, your story about DH is so typical. I'd told DH to lay of the beers weeks ago, he cut back but not altogether so let's hope his swimmers do their job!!
Now for 4 hCG injection to do, a mid Luteal bloods then the magical test on 16th July
Now to consider ourselves pregnant-until-proven-otherwise. Good luck to both you Mam & Green fairy and I hope you don't mind me joining in the tww with your both.

Green fairy glad to hear its going well and good luck! Hope the TWW flies by!
Mam how exciting that sounds promising!! Don't worry about the timing of your DH & the IUI, we DTD the night before our last IUI and it didn't affect his result at all. Yay good luck!!
Welcome tropical bub! That sounds like a complicated regime, why do they have you on tamoxifen? I havent heard of that before, did they explain why?
AFM I have ovulated naturally!!!!! I can't believe it finally after all this time!! So I'm in the TWW but no high hopes, I'm expecting to be jabbing again soon

Wow what an unusual combination!! Are you allergic to clomid or does your fs just not like it?? That's a great result so its obviously done the job!! Go follie!! So happy we are all in the 2ww together almost be testing on the same day I think!!!! It's my cd 18 today, I have never ovulated this early before so I am totally stoked!!!! DH made his deposit this morning so iui in an hour. YAY!!! Last one before IVF, I am so excited to be moving on!!
I'm sure that a few beers will be ok, has he had a sperm test yet?? Is this your first cycle??
Thinking of you all!!! Xoxo

How did your iui go mam? Great news on the sperm count! I won't be in the same tww afterall... Had another scan this morning and nothing is happening so I'm up to 82.5 and another scan on tues. I'm happy to go slow and steady but fs is away for a week from the 7th so hope I get to trigger before then. I've done 10 shots now so hopefully by tues I'll have some action.
Have a great weekend girls and fingers crossed for you all that the conception magic is taking place

Hey munchkin, I know how you feel with the emotional breakdown, I have cried non stop since I found out that both my tubes are blocked, seems like everything that can go wrong has lately, I was meant to have an appointment at a clinic that charge around 1500 a cycle for ivf, but the nurse called me today to inform me that I don't fit there criteria, as my bmi is high and I have a low ahm level , I explained to her that I was working on my weight but they still can't help me, we are taking a month off and trying to get our heads around it all, hope all is good for those jabbing and in the 2ww
have a great weekend ladies
