Transfer went well today. We transferred one of our blasts (they only needed to thaw one). Beta is on August 21!

I've got the full story up on my journal.

Fluffy - thanks for telling me that, it really helped! I guess the fear of the unnknown got me a bit.

I'll have to email the clinic again today because I haven't heard back yet. Not that my body is doing anything cycle wise. Still have spotting, no AF. Last time I had spotting like this was my first miscarriage so hmm. Hope I didn't have a chemical or something :/

Abe - I just commented on your journal, but yay! Glad it all went well and can't wait until you find out!

@sarah
I should wait until the 20th because of the HCG injections (don't want to get a false positive), but my TWW is technically over on Wednesday 16th. So I will try and wait until Sunday, but I might break down before then and test any day after that Wednesday :P

@abe
Yay!!! We'll be testing one day apart, let's hope this is our lucky month!

@Sheece
I'm glad it helped ^^ I tried reading as much as possible about the IUI beforehand, I was just as nervous. Hoping you'll hear from the clinic soon and can get things moving forward.

AFM:
7dpo today, statistically speaking this is implantation day... I wish I could say I feel one way or another, but while I do feel different, there is no knowing if it's due to the HCG injections or actually being pregnant. *sigh* Next week I will finally be able to do a test that actually has a chance of being positive, after all these months, for the first time on my TTC journey! While I really really hope it will be positive (obviously), I'm honestly just glad to finally be at a point where things could be working out and hopefully will within the next few months

Well we've had some developments in my ongoing saga. Last night I started bleeding more and feeling more periody so I figured that it was starting.

That kinda made it all feel real to me so i start like half panicking and go out to OH & say oi we have to make a decision now what do you want to do. Straight away he says try natural. And my guts been telling me the same. I've been feeling really weird about the prospect of IUI this month :/

So thats probably a really stupid decision but we've decided to go full guns blazing and try natural for one more cycle. Ive got the new prenatals, clean eating, more excercise, he is off the booze again & we will do the deed every 2 days to help his swimmers out, like we did when we conceived.

I feel better about the decision than i do about IUI, but still feel like we could be wasting time :/ but hey whats one more cycle. I just have to trust my gut feeling I guess. Hasn't led me wrong before :/

And of course no sign of period this morning though so who knows what games my body is playing today.

So now I'm second guessing myself again because the clinic got back to me and said DR is happy for us to go straight to IUI. Then OH said ok lets do it, and that he was just wanting to hear from the doctor.



I have to have CD2 screening done if we go ahead so I'll be making a quick decision when I get AF I guess.

Sheece, exciting, things are happening fast for you now! In the end, it really comes to down to whether you are happy to wait longer or not. Can your doctor give you an estimate of your chances with each? Ours said with IUI, our chances are 23-25% per cycle, while naturally without the monitoring and everything, he estimated more like 10%. So roughly, it would take twice as long: we should expect within 3-4 months with IUI and within 6-9 months with just clomid. That made it an easy decision for us to go for the IUI!

Whatever you decide to go for, I'm crossing my fingers for you!!!

The timing thing is the big thing im worried about. At the moment im leaning more towards IUI so we will see.

Seems like my cycle is currently playing silly buggers with me too, so if its another long one (already CD39) that will definitely make up my mind :/

Thanks fluffy How are you feeling? any symptoms or are you trying to not symptom spot?

I feel for you so much with this decision because I only just went through it three weeks ago and struggled emotionally as well. It's not easy.

I swore I wouldn't symptom spot, and since 2dpo I have been symptom spotting all day long X'D It's impossible to tell though because of the HCG injections (at 3dpo, 6dpo and 9dpo), so while I definitely feel different, there is not telling until at least Monday if it's due to th injections or due to pregnancy (my own HCG). I've been having really weird and vivid dreams and most noticeably my boobs have been sore for days and I think they look bigger. I'm also fairly tired, but I've just gotten over a cold so that could be why.

Monday (12dpo) is when the injected HCG in my blood should start getting noticeably lower, so that is when I might get a first indication of anything. Wednesday (14dpo) my period is due, so that will be a pretty strong indication. If AF doesn't show, then the next few days will be a battle of wills because it's not 100% safe to test until Sunday because of the injections, but if my period still hasn't shown by Friday, I think I might just give in X) By then I should either have a pretty faint positive from the injections or a really strong one if I am pregnant... hubby really wants me to wait until Sunday to test to not get false hope, but it's SO HARD!

Well I think the decision has been made for us.

I'm on my 9th day of spotting which is heavier in the afternoon, but still not what I could class as AF. So obviously I'm over it and I've googled, and seen a few people have had the same thing after a D & C and their doctors have told them its their AF. The first AF after d & c can just be light / weird.

So we've missed the IUI window anyway! I'd be on CD9 today.

I guess we get our one more natural cycle after all heh.

Fluffy - it's so hard to not test early, I have never ever been able to not test early! Ideally in my head I'd wait though because it just causes more drama with trying to see squinty lines and sadness at early bfns.

My fingers are still crossed for you!! Hurry up Sunday
