Waiting how are you doing any news or updates? How did your ultrasound go? Was it today? When's IUI? So excited to hear from you and see you bfp in February.

Afm I went in for my ultrasound yesterday and I was very negative because I didn't feel like the femara was working. Yesterday was my first high on the monitor cd 11. On clomid I started highs cd 8 or 9. Well low and behold lining measured 10 and follicule on the right was 21. Perfect. Triggered last night and will do iui friday.

Hi FBG, I'm kinda in the same time line, can I join the tread? I triggered on Thursday and IUI on Saturday! My follies measured 18 and two 16s. I'm surprised the RE wanted to proceed. I just read that they keep growing so maybe that's what she had in mind.

I'm having some cramping. It's unusual but maybe that's the trigger working. I also can't sleep!

Hey! I couldn't remember what this thread was called! Glad I found it again. Ultrasound was one follicule. Measured at 20 on cd 12. Triggered that night! Iui now! In waiting room haha. Did you just get one good follicule too? My doc said that's all I might get on femera. And that if this cycle doesn't work might have to go back to clomid or injections :/

Taking or doing anything during 2 week wait?

Surgar- sure join us! Did you get those two follicule on femera? I've been cramping since ultrasound really too!

WELCOME Sugargully! I am not surprised with your RE decision. In November I had an 18 and either two 15 or 16 size follicules. I was very disappointed in the sizes and then timing. Dh and i were not expecting to trigger so soon so we had planned to bd that night and not the night before. He had lower count but in the normal range. Anyway we ended up getting our bfp. Unfortunately my egg implanted in my fallopian tube.

Basically I believe you have an amazing chance to get your bfp. Relax and enjoy your dh.

Waitingongod1 my doctor told me the same thing. Clomid get you quantity but not quality and affects your lining and ovaries over time. Which I was worried about it thinning my lining and ovarian cyst. I took a baby aspirin daily through my cycle to prevent my lining from thinning each cycle. I have had history when I was younger with ovarian cyst so I always used a trigger to try to prevent any cysts from forming.

I felt the same way as you about only getting one follicule. I thought about asking to go back on clomid because femara only gives me one follicule and NP told me if my follicule was on my left side no iui since my left fallopian tube was removed. I worry that will be next month.

I know it is so hard to decide but I will probably go back to clomid. My iui didn't go that great. Wasn't even excited at all. Already disappointed as soon as we got out hubby has always have good sperm. His sperm was half of what it was before. We've never worried about sperm before. Doc said if this doesn't work we would have to look into it :/ my iui was also very painful they couldn't get it in right and took forever :/

How did yours go? I feel drained

That's good news. My husbands was around 30million. Think that ridiculously low? Before it was 63 million..I don't know why it was so much lower. He had the stomach flu week before. Think that would have affected it?

Yes illness can affect sperm count. Anything that causes body temperature to rise decreases sperm count if it's too long or too often.

Our NP recommended icing throughout the week every so often because my dh works in warm conditions and wears jeans for safety.

We choose to ice and a few other things to get the numbers above normal. Dh does take lots of vitamins which has done amazing things and we make sure to keep an active sex life to keep the swimmers fresh.

I am not really putting much thought into this cycle because there is just too much going on. We are thrilled with dh numbers and follicule size. If something happens it will be a true blessing. Otherwise there is always next month and we have an appointment with fertility specialist.

Sugar and Waiting when do you plan on testing?
