Thanks Angela

Megg, I am exactly the same LOL and with the exhaustion, surely so easy for me to do little.

For the first 2 days, I basically acted like I had a cold. I only got up to use the bathroom, make food/eat, and walk the dog. The next 2 days I did a bit more and actually left the house and walked around more but still took it very easy. For the remainder of the 2ww I resumed my normal activity but didn't do any heavy housework. It was hard to resist the urge but I didn't want to take the risk. I don't know if any of this made a difference though. I feel like a lot of it was luck.

Name: Ruth
Age: 37
How long TTC: 15 months
Diagnosis or any known issues: Unexplained infertility
Treatments you tried before IVF: 8 IUIs -- 4 unmedicated (some with trigger shots), 1 clomid, 2 Femara, 1 Femara + follistim. Many cycles with progesterone support. Also had some acupuncture, but I stopped before I had IVF.
How many IVF did you do before success: 1st try!
Are you using donor eggs or sperm: Yes, donor sperm
Protocol (meds taken): Long lupron protocol -- BC pills, lupron, menopur, follistim, HCG trigger shot, then after ER, progesterone in oil shots and estrogen patches. And they also had me take valium for the transfer. I had both ICSI and assisted hatching. I've also been taking baby aspirin.
How many follicles at ER: I don't know
How many eggs retrieved: 26; 19 were mature
How many eggs fertilized: 16; 15 made it to day 3; 6 did well enough to transfer or freeze by day 5-6
How many days between ER and ET: 5
How many and quality/rating of embryos/blasts transferred: 2 4AA blasts (and I have 4 more frozen, yay!)
How many days bed rest: 2 (not total bed rest but lounging around, nothing more active than a 2-minute walk. On the morning of the third day I got on a plane.)
Symptoms or issues during 2WW: AF-type cramping, some pinching & pulling
What day you got your BFP: D12 (7dp5dt)
HPT before blood test: yes of course, I'm a POAS addict
Number of first beta: 75 at D14 (then 163 at D16 and 436 at D18)
Number of babies: 1, I'm 8 weeks along and have seen a heartbeat
Anything else you would have wanted to know before you started this process: If you're doing IUIs, stop after 3-4 and go right to IVF if there is any possible way you can afford it. I found all the IUIs to be just horrible emotionally.

Name: Evie
Age: 30
How long TTC: 2 years
Diagnosis or any known issues: DH has very sperm antibodies, I have endometryosis.
Treatments you tried before IVF: 3 x failed IUI
How many IVF did you do before success: We were lucky first time
Are you using donor eggs or sperm: No.
Protocol (meds taken): Buseralin, Gonal-F, Cylogest.
How many follicles at ER: about 12
How many eggs retrieved: 10, of which 7 were mature
How many eggs fertilized: 5
How many days between ER and ET: 5 days
How many and quality/rating of embryos/blasts transferred:2 blastocysts; not sure of quality ! okay I presume
How many days bed rest: None ! ooops, went for a pub meal that night and walk/pub lunch the next. Even had half a glass of red wine. My doc said to chill but bed rest wasn’t needed.
Symptoms or issues during 2WW: A bit dizzy at 12 DPO apart from that nothing.
What day you got your BFP: 14 DPO with FMU
Number of first beta: doc just said “excellent” – I never ask, I have a good relationship with my doc and if she says excellent I take it as read – I’m the sort of person that if I knew the numbers I would go google crazy
Number of babies: find out in weeks time !!!
Anything else you would have wanted to know before you started this process: I had the odd half glass of red wine, I kept going as normal, just quit the gym after EC.

Hi ladies, I am currently doing puregon (follistim) and iui, just had my second one last week. Not feeling to positive about it thought, seems like its just a waste of time. Here you have to go through at least 3 iuis with hormones before you can move on to IVF so Im just sat here waiting, might be moving on to ivf in about a month though

IVF is a whole different ballgame to IUI! But, its worth it... or it was for a lot of us! I hope you get your BFP from this IUI, though!
