Melissa,

What you said is so true about the new love for each other. We found that too!! It is unfortunately not all couples experience that, and not being able to have ones own children may lead to the opposite. I think it's great you guys are embracing your struggles and hopefully will find more happiness when it is over. I agree, I feel our future babies will be so much more meaningful to us if we hadn't worked so hard. Although I hate to admit it, this struggle has been good for me and I think it is important that my DH and I go through it together. You can't learn through success, only failure. I'm glad your DH was able to get his diagnosis corrected, not a great way to find out though! Hopefully this helps, and maybe we are all just waiting for that perfect combination! I'm not sure you feel this way, but I feel a great sense of relief doing IUI (minus the invasive stuff) because I don't have to think about it. I just go there, they tell me what to do, and I wait. Its nice not having all the pressure to "get it just right". Not as fun when you have to try and plan around it.

My next IUI will probably be around the week of the 27th, so I'll keep y'all updated!

Thanks Mrsbertrand! I appreciate this thread and your support!

Great numbers Melissa! I really hope this is it for you!

Kk I also feel like my DH and I have grown closer and more in love going through loss and infertility together...but I sure hope there is a rainbow at the end of all this rain. Good luck with your next cycle!

I'm in the final countdown to my IUI cycle...AF expected around March 30-31. Unless of course we somehow magically conceived this cycle naturally...but I doubt we will be that lucky!

Hi Ladies I'm back after a month of taking a break. Congratulations Swimming!!!!! This give me so much hope!! I'm going a ask my doc about adding injections to my next cycle. I am starting my 2nd IUI cycle. Tomorrow is my 1st apt to get US and order my medications. This time around I am vowing not to spot check, and to continue my workouts. I am adding a supplement called Premama. Has anyone heard of it? It's a powder to add to water that helps egg quality, and support ovulation. It has 200 mcg of Folic Acid, and 200 mcg of Myo-Inositol. I'm also taking a prenatal supplement. Let April be our month!!!! Baby dust to you all!!!

Thank you Wishn.. and good luck. You never know Keep us updated.

Hi Tia. Goodluck on the next cycle. For me, they didn't add injectables until my 3rd IUI. The way my inf clinic does it is that they gradually become more and more aggressive as time progresses. They dont want to be too agressive right off the bat because they're trying to avoid multiples. I'm on my 5th now (only got 1 more shot at this after this one) so they really pushed to get more follies.
Never heard of Premama. Will look into it! Thanks.

Good luck Tia!

My first IUI will be with injectables, so Swimming's success gave me a lot of hope! Our doctor didn't even offer us the option of clomid or femara with IUI, went straight to injectables. I think it's because I'm older (38) and DH's sperm is not great. So I guess our chance of multiples will actually be lower than what the stats say.

I'm 37 and would love a set of twins! So I'm ready to be more agressive. On my 1st IUI I took 2.5 mg of Femara, and only released 1 egg. After reading what other women are taking I am going to request 5mg of Femara and injections. I hope the dr will agree to it

I just have to tell you girls this story!
I have 2 German Shepherds, male and female, 3 years old. My male shepherd has always been very attached to me, he's very protective of me but is so sweet and gentle. About a year ago he started acting weird, he'd wake up in the middle of the night and pace around the room (we can hear his nails on our wooden floors) then he would sit next to my side of the bed and just stare at me. (Creepy!) DH would get soo mad because he would wake him up, DH would discipline him and he'd go back to his bed, but 2 minutes later he was back on my side staring at me. We thought he wanted to go out so we would let him out but he would just sit at the door waiting to come back in. This went on for weeks but we kinda started ignoring him and he would just fall asleep next to my bed. Eventually we found out I was pregnant but we MC at 7 weeks. After I had the D&C he stopped sitting next to my bed. So we thought it was very curious how he only did it while I was pregnant and thought well maybe he could sense it and was just being more overprotective than usual.
Over the weekend he started doing the same exact thing again! He hadn't done it since December2015/January2016. So maybe it's nothing, but if this IUI does work this is going to be very interesting!

Melissa, animals can be very perceptive! They may be able to smell pregnancy hormones before any test can detect them. Here's hoping his weird behaviour means your BFP is right around the corner! I remember during the tww of my conception cycle, my cat snuck upstairs and came and laid right on my belly one morning. Once I got my bfp I was like 'did she know??'
