Thank you, that takes some of the scariness away! Were you told to lie down right after the procedure for a while? I feel like that would make a lot of sense but I don't know if they do it?
Your lining check is on the 31st? That's when I'll have my ultrasound to see if the 50mg of clomid worked - let's hope it will be a lucky Monday for both of us!

@Sheece
Will definitely keep updating! I was really hoping we could just try naturally (with medication on my end because of the PCOS), but the way I see it now is like this: We could keep trying naturally and it would probably happen eventually, but what the IUI will do is (hopefully) speed things up by several months! So between pride/idealism ("the magic just happened at home" :P) and impatience, impatience definitely won, I am so ready for that baby. X)
BDing around the time is a good idea and then you won't know which one worked, I like that

Fluffy - I think we are the same as you time wise. Too impatient to risk another long cycle, bring on the iui! (with lots of BDing around the same time to disguise :P)

Cookie- you do have to wait about 5 minutes after they're done, but nothing too horrible. I'm glad I could ease some of your worries!

Sheece- I'm hoping they just let you continue where you left off!

Looks like we're all cycle buddies this month!

haha looks like it indeed, somehow we all kinda synched! I'm on CD 7 today, still not feeling much in terms of side effects from the clomid, perhaps a little more moody than usual (or so hubby says :P). Monday next week can't come fast enough, although I'm preparing myself for the outcome that realistically, 50mg clomid are unlikely to have been enough - but maybe I'm in for a pleasant surprise!

I'm on CD11 today - DH says all of the estrogen in my system (I'm up to 4mg/day now) is making me really b*tchy. He can't wait until I'm off of it.

50mg of Clomid may be enough... I guess only time will tell. Hopefully it works!

Haha, small price for him to pay I say Abe :P

I'm a bit behind you girls I think, CD21 today (if I could D & C as CD1). Had ewcm yesterday for the first time this cycle. Feels weird not temping.

We are so not being careful either. Feels wrong to use protection after all this time. I doubt we will get pregnant anyway.

@Sheece
after trying for so long, ever being careful feels like the most pointless thing to do, doesn't it? I have already decided I'm not going to go back ont he pill between pregnancies, if anything we might just use condoms, but no more messing with my hormones!

@abe
thank you! I took my last clomid tablet today, now it's just waiting... will watch like a hawk for any signs of ovulation, but we have a busy weekend with travelling, so I can't temp. Hubby also said he thinks the clomid made me more irritable, but honestly I think it's the stress of everything more than the clomid X)

AFM:
Currently talking to both his and my insurance to see what they will cover, yikes... lots of forms, lots of delays! This cycle we are definitely paying out of pocket, but I'm hoping we can get things in order for next cycle, that would be great. So far it seems my meds are all covered by my insurance (which is half the cost!), but for the actual IUI, we will probably only have half covered. That would leave us with 100-200 € (about 80-160 pounds or 120-240 $) to pay by ourselves in future cycles, which is something we can absolutely deal with. This cycle it will be the full 400 €, but hopefully only this once. Don't even want to think about how what will/won't be covered if we have to go through IVF later and how much that will cost...

Fluffy, I'm the same as you with the Pill. I came off it 6 years ago, after being on it for 10 before that, because it was just making me very emo and depressed. Vowed never to go on it. Fast forward to my last appointment with specialist and he told me that between pregnancies / after our last baby I'll have to go on the pill to prevent the endo coming back. NO way! I hope there's another alternative because I really don't want to go back on hormonal birth control. We were planning on OH to just have the snip :/

Insurance sucks hey :/ Our IUI will cost us about $2,000 out of pocket. My insurance cover won't kick in until September and we are saving it incase we need IVF. IVF I think is about $10 - 15k, but with insurance we will "only" pay $4k. Most of the expense is hospital fees I think.

But we both won't need IVF all good IUI will be the trick! Positive vibes and all that

Yes Sheece, we won't need it! I agree Yikes, I wonder why IUIs are so much more expensive where you live?

I have good news to report, finally: A good egg (just the one, which is what we want, doctor said) is building on only 50mg of clomid. Yay!! I will do a trigger shot with ovidrell Tuesday at 4am and then we will do our first IUI Wednesday morning. I'm so so excited, we will finally have a chance!! Really didn't think 50mg would be enough, the doctor seemed surprised as well, but the ultrasound was very clear he said
