Hi all- can I join you? It's always better to be able to share these TTC experiences with those who get it, because not everyone does!!

DH and I are prepping for our first IUI cycle. He has low morph (about 1% normal forms) but no other issues between us. We were TTC for a year before we started seeing a RE in October. Luckily, since my cycles are regular, we were able to move through testing pretty quickly and get to treatment quickly, too. I am CD 8 today and did 4 days of Gonal-F 75IU. I had a scan yesterday and the doctor saw one 13mm follicle on my right and 18 total smaller ones, so she upped my dose to 100IU for last night and tonight. My nurse called it 'one tiny follicle', but I thought 13mm was pretty good for CD7! She also said my lining was pretty thin, but again I probably wouldn't have expected a beautiful lining on day 7? Haha.. I go back tomorrow for monitoring again, so hopefully they will see some good progress!!

Secret - I know it's hard not to be disappointed but your DH is right, one day at a time. You're never out until AF shows, and while 11dpiui is enough for some bfps, there are certainly plenty of bfps that show later than that. Just try to breathe and get through the day. These last 5 days of the tww are the absolute worst! We're all here for you!

Welcome Maybe! That's cool that you're monitoring so much in this first week so you're able to adjust the medication levels. For this month, we're doing our first monitoring on CD12 and, I would assume, just going with whatever they find. If I respond poorly I wonder if they'll try something different for next month. We're only 4 days apart from one another! Cheers to this month!

I'm so sorry s_secret. Infertility just sucks. You're definitely still not out though. Dont have any expectations and try to distract yourself if at all possible. Let us know.

Savasanna- yes, it will be interesting to know. Hopefully it doesn't, but it's pretty common. Crossing my fingers for you!

So what do they do if your lining is too thin?

Sorry to hear that, Secret. What's the plan? Are you doing another IUI this month?

Ugh, so sorry to hear that Secret. What are your next steps?

As for me, I'm 2dpt, so expect to ovulate today . I had a scan on Saturday which showed I had one 18mm folicle and another 13mm. RE didn't think the 13 was going to make it, but said the larger one would be ready to go. Lining also improved significantly.. I believe it was over 8, so I was instructed to trigger that night. I had plans to see a play with my family, so I had to trigger during intermission. Nothing like sticking yourself with a needle in a playhouse bathroom to make you feel like you're in deep TTC

We had IUI yesterday morning and this morning, with a total count of 20 million motile (my RE only gives us the motile count, so no idea what the overall count was. I guess the motile count is more important anyway ). With DH's low morph, that means about 200,000 good ones are just waiting to meet the egg. Fingers crossed that one of them finds his way! I go back on Thursday for blood work so that they can check my progesterone levels, but as of today, I am in the TTW! Who's joining me?!

Congrats on being in the TWW, maybe! I'll be right there with you soon! I'm guessing I'll end up triggering Friday night and having the IUI on Sunday. We'll see what they say on Thursday, though.

Secret - here we go 2017! I was originally planning on IVF Jan 2017 as well, however we've since decided to try two monitored IUIs before moving on to IVF. So I'll be following suit in Feb/March.

I'm so sorry S_secret. Why are you taking birth control on your month off? Could you try naturally for the month before IVF? They gave me a 20% chance of BFP with IUI. I didn't know that this was the same chance as a women without infertility has each month. No wonder why the average time it takes a couple without any issues to get pregnant is a year!

How's everything going Savasanna?

Hey Maybe_baby! So funny about triggering during intermission. I have had to give myself injections in my car while parking in a parking lot before. I have also done them in the kitchen while my kids are eating lunch. Haha! Anyways, I'm glad your lining thickened up, that's great! I triggered last week and am now 5dpt. Don't know if I will test before beta. What will you do?
