ugh ya Miskas, I understand your frustration, when you've been trying so long every month counts! But maybe after you do the saline procedure it may increase your fertility, so that may help...anyway keep us updated

Is it a sonohystogram or something like that? That's the only other saline procedure I can think of. If it is, it should be the last of your big tests before you can get the ball rolling full speed. Once it starts, everything moves so quickly!

Yes holly that's it! A sonohystogram.. I couldn't remember what it was called... I was still bummed... But on a good note my father in law has started his chemo treatments today.. We are really hoping that this works and he gets to meet a new grand baby.

He had prostate cancer about 18 yrs ago, has been in remission, but it's come back and matastized to his bones.. Drs are hopeful the chemo will help and give him 2-3 more yrs. he is only 70..

Ugh, the tww has been torture! Lol! I've been feeling nausea, stinging/tingling nipple, sore sides of boobs, on and off pricking feeling near uterus..my temp keeps rising and dropping, ugh I'm just praying I get a bfp next week!
How are you doing sassy? Any side effects from your treatment?

Pricking feelings sound promising! When is your beta? Will you be testing at home ahead of it? Best of luck!!!!

I'm alright.. Trying to remain calm. Drinking a lot of water and green tea.. Since I think it's supposed to help CM. Have you heard that?

I'm kinda finding peace by making a 3 month plan. If this cycle doesn't work, we will try injectables and iui 2-3 times, and if that doesn't work, ivf time. I never thought I'd have to go that route, but I'm really having doubts about iui working. I feel like it would have worked by now (4 tries) of it was going to. I don't really understand why injectables have higher success rates, I'm going to ask my doctor on Sunday. If I'm already ovulating every month, what can injectables do for me?

I'll be testing at home next week, starting Wednesday .
Yes I've heard drinking water helps!
I think that 3 month plan sounds great. Injectables have a higher success because they cause more mature follicles to develop. So if you got one follicle with femara and 2 follicles with clomid, you could get 4-5 follicles with injectables, which increases the probably of sperm meeting egg, or multiple eggs!
Keep me updated!

Sassy, I agree with Cali about the injectables. How many mature follies did you have on your previous IUI rounds?

I had my day 10 today... For the first time in many months, my lining is 5.9, so I don't need an Estrace boost. I have 5 follicles.. The largest is 1.3, and there are 4 that are 1.0. I really hope a few of those 1.0s catch up. Usually by now I have at least one 1.6 or larger. My doctor said that if they mature too quickly it could be bad for egg quality... So hopefully this totally different cycle is my lucky one!

As for injectables, my doctor insisted that they have better success rates because of egg quality, not because there are simply more follicles. Sounds encouraging... This will definitely be my next move.

Calinina.. And telling symptoms? Just a few more days!!

Sassy that sounds great! Hopefully 2-3 of the 5 follicles will mature .
I'm dying during my tww, I actually took a test this morning (11dpiui & 13dpt) and I got a faint positive, I'm cautious though since it still may be the trigger. I'll test again tomorrow! My symptoms are larger nipples, mild nausea, trapped gas feeling, extremely tired, poking feeling...but we'll see
