Hi Ladies! 6 DPIUI for me today, this 2ww is driving me crazy! Oh well not much you can do about that. I've been keeping up with the normal 2ww gym routine, light weights, light cardio and biking to work. Hopefully that isn't too much but we will see.
Springy-when I was on herbs from the naturopath I ovulated way later than usual and my cycles were much longer. Which herbs are you on?
I was on vitex, black cohosh, maca, rhodiola and red clover for beginning of cycle and then vitex, wild yam, maca, black cohosh, and dong quai from ovulation until end of cycle. It tasted AWFUL!!!! Hope it works for you Can't believe it is almost time for your lap, time flies!
Just for the record - I can't pronounce most of those and the ones I can sound nasty!
Harvest - Hope the rest of your TWW goes quickly.
Dizzi - good to see you are still hanging in there what # IUI will this be for you?
Springy - Only a few more weeks for the lap. that is crazy! Seemed like it was so far away.
Hubby and I signed up for a half marathon 8/20. It will be his first. I am hoping we will be around the same pace because it would be fantastic to finish it with him It will be my 32nd bday so maybe he will let me win by at least a few seconds!
AF arrived last Tuesday so I am onto my 3rd & final cycle of IUI next week! I am really looking forward to getting the final one done so I can gear myself up for the IVF process. Here's hoping it is 3rd time lucky though!!
I have joined the 'July IUI' thread, I see most of you ladies are on there. I may not be on here quite as much as before as I am going to try and relax but will update with my figures and any symptoms.
This thread started a year ago so I thought it would be nice to have an update of how everyone is doing. I can't believe I started my first IUI a year ago
After 3 failed IUIs & 1 unsuccessful IVF attempt we are now waiting for the results of immunology results. Hoping to start IVF #2 in June/July. I'm really hopeful about getting some answers after 5yrs TTC.
Hello! Congratulations and good luck on saturday. Funny thing is I went for an ultrasound yesterday and I a dominant follicle that measures 14.9mm, we are going back tomorrow for another ultrasound. If it measures at least 18mm then we are going to have the trigger shot and have insemmination 36hrs after...
To answer your question. (I am a personal trainer) And yes you can workout when TTC and even when you are expecting. It is good for your mind body and spirit. The major thing to be aware of is over heating. You do not want to get your body temperature too hot, the baby will have a tough time with that. But for sure go ahead and keep working out...you may want to life lighter weights and do more reps....
People that have never worked out and decide to start because they are preggers...that's the problem. Their body is not used to working out and they usually go to the gym and go hard. That shocks the body and can cause a miscarriage...but if your body is already used to working out then continue and enjoy yourself!
Feel free to ask me any questions. If I don't answer right away it is because this is only my second time on the website and I am still trying to get used to it.
I think back at the time we all were on this thread initially we qew all way to afraid to exercise. When you struggle with infertility the last thing any of us wanted during the dreaded tww is do anything where you may look back and say "I shouldn't have done this ...."
However now that most of us on this thread have "graduated" to IVF you actually cannot work out once you start stimulating. You could go for a light walk and that's about it - your ovaries get so large that you risk twisting your ovaries and having severe complications. I was given specifi instructions from my re not to run, work out etc once I started my stimulation meds. For my other IUI and normal cycles I actually continued as normal and even played sports. As of Saturday though I won't be doing anything but watching sports
