First IUI - now TWW *UPDATE* :(


Just wanted to post since I am now in the TWW!! DH and I have been trying for 8.5 years and have had no luck, I have never been pregnant - we have been put in the Unexplained category.

We have just had our first IUI on Wednesday Oct. 3rd after having the daily injections of Gonal-F. The Doctor was very pleased with our numbers, I had one egg measuring at 22mm and DH's post wash sperm count was a whooping 124million!!!! He seemed very positive so we are trying to keep our spirits up!

Just wanted to share as this is ALL I CAN THINK ABOUT!!!!!

xoxo

Update*****


So my first IUI was a BFN - I was devastated.... CD3 today, had ultrasound and blood work... Doc upped my Gonal-F to 75ui - praying that we get it this month....

DH and I decided that we are going to look for a local support group to help us cope as we were both in tears when we got the phone call... I know its only my second attempt but I think it may be my last for a bit, not sure it I can handle the heartbreak of another BFN...

Sorry to hear about your BFN.

I had my first IUI this week and I was using Gonal also. Just wondering what your dose was. I have had cycles with 1 follicle and one with 17, changing your dose slightly can really make a difference.

I had 9 follicles when I did my IUI so I am hoping that one or two take.

Sending you lots of baby dust for this cycle.

First IUI I was on 50ui, so my Doc only bumped it to 75ui, I asked for 100 but he said that we will revisit the amount during my cd8 ultrasound and bloodwork...

9 Follicles, that is awesome! I really hope that it works for you! Please keep me posted

No wonder you only had one egg. I have never heard of a dose of 50 but 50 is a very very low dose.

I started with 150 and they say that is a typical dose. Since I hyper stimulated I dropped to 75. I only had one follicle on 75 so they upped me to 112.5 and got lots. 9 are 1.5 and above but I have several between 1 and 1.4.

The dose for Gonal is in increments of 37.5 so 100 is not possible. I would suggest 75 because it's so easy to overstimulate.

The Gonal-F I am on allows for increments of 12.5, had my CD8 ultrasound and blood this morning and I have 2 follies, one at 17.5 and one at 13.5 so it looks like I will be O'ing early this month!

I am hoping for Saturday morning so I can reals for the weekend.

Hey ladies,

Hoping to jump in here. I am doing my very first IUI this cycle and would love to connect with others going through the same thing. I just had my CD8 u/s yesterday and had 3 follicles: 10mm, 9mm, 8mm. I am going back for another scan on Saturday morning. I am doing 75 units of Follistim (I am not sure how similar that is to gonal-f)??

I was excited about the scan...but wow...2 follicles at 13.5 and 17.5 at cd8 is like superstar, ha!

At what point did your doctors trigger you?

Good luck to you both!

So are you using a trigger? Or just ovulating naturally? I am just curious. 2 follies sounds great! 1 is all you need ;-) Is that growth from just over night?
