So I am booked in for a IUI in MAY ( I am praying very hard I concieved this month and wont need to go through it)
Hubby is all good, my tubes etc are all good but I was told yesterday I have a low egg count and therefore should not really waste any time trying to concieve naturally esp if I want more than one kid.
My FS says they only do 2 rounds of IUI and then they advise you to move on to IVF.
I cried my eyes out...even this morning I just feel like a failure....
Im trying to look at the positives of tubes are clear, hubbys swimmers are very good...still ovoulating just the clock is ticking fast...just so worried if it doesnt happen soon then I will never be a mum, I just turned 36 and i feel like this is my last chance!
Thing is if its something like you dont ovoulate then you know that can be fixed but with a low egg count ...its now or never ...so sad so disheartned, i really pray IUI works first time i honestly dont think I can handle it if it doesnt
Well AF came on Friday evening do calling the hospital Monday to see when I'm having scans and to start taking all the meds! I can't believe it's all starting, I just hope we get a BFP especially after 2.5 years if trying with no specific reason why we can't get pregnant
Star7474, we are on the same day! I had my 1st follicle scan yesterday (CD 5) and got the clomid, so next I go back on Monday for another scan and if a few of my bazillion follicles (I have PCOS) are good to go I'll get the trigger and do IUI on Tuesday. If they're not "ready" yet I'll go back 2 days later, so sometime next week will be my first IUI! Fingers crossed for all of us!!!
I seriously had a ton of follicles - like 12-15 on one side and 18-20 on the other. She swore it was normal with PCOS, and that they still expect just 1-3 of them to advance to being dominant. But she warned me that since it's our first cycle and we don't know how I'll respond to the clomid, we may want to NOT bd and just wait until the next scan in case a bunch of them progress. Don't want to end up with like 10 eggs I guess!!!
Ive now finished my clomid and 2 lots of menopur 75iu, im feeling really undr the weather, nauseated and tired i think its just the meds. im due for my scan tomorrow to see what my folicles are like then hopefully we can get the IUI done this week. My other half is very positive and hoping with the pills & injections that it will all work 1st time, but from reading other peoples stories im not sure if it will work 1st time around. Im trying to stay postive and hopefully if the scan is good it might make me feel better.
I had my scan Monday which I was quite disappointed with the results as it showed only 3 follicles but I had another scan today and I've got 5 one side and 6 the next, although the largest is 16mm, I'm feeling very bloated and achy tummy. I've got to go back tomorrow for another scan to see if there grown but worried they may cancel my IUI due to lots of follicles
Star7474, I know what you mean - I feel like my ovaries are about to BURST! But I got kind of a let down, as much as I feel like I'm IUI-ready, my day 12 scan on Monday showed no follicles that are maturing. So sad. So I go back tomorrow (day 15) to see if there's one now, but most likely my IUI is off. I don't understand how I can feel ready to burst but have no follicles maturing. All I had was one cyst, which they saw on day 3, that must be all I'm feeling. I'm SO frustrated, I really thought this was going to be it.
Hope your nausea and everything goes away and that your scan tomorrow goes well!!
