Hi Ladies. I've been lurking but haven't posted since I first introduced myself.
This is our first cycle inseminating. We decided to go the clomid route, since the HSG showed an occlusion on my right side, and my RE wanted to make sure we had the best chances possible.
I was on 50mg from CD5-CD9. Went in for US on CD12, and had a 24mm follie on the left, and a 22mm on the right (blocked side). We did the trigger right then and there, and my wife and I headed back 24 hours later for the insemination. We used donor sperm from california cryobank. The andrologist (Sperm engineer lady? ) said after washing there were 9.4 million swimmers.
Insemination went well, had some cramping for a few hours, but felt great otherwise.
It's 6DPIUI, and I've officially decided that this has been the longest 6 days of my life, and it's like watching paint dry. We've been keeping a positive outlook, and even made a little altar. I got really upset yesterday with a friend's comment, although I know it wasn't meant to hurt, but she nonchalantly wrote how after this two week wait, you pee on a stick and find out you're not pregnant, and then you have to go through it all over again.
Anyhow, keeping a positive outlook regardless. Setting my intentions and working on my breathing with welcoming thoughts for our baby. It'll happen when it's supposed to, but I would love for it to happen....right NOW
Thanks for letting me vent. I'm hoping my experience can help others not able to get a known donor and having to go the IUI way.
Just found this group and figured I'd jump right in!
My name is Laura and my Dp is Amy. This month will be our third month of ttc with known donor and home insems. Had a chemical/early miscarriage this month which was horrible, but we've decided to jump straight back on the roundabout.
EIN that is awesome!! It has been a while, I have been waiting on you....
newcomers! GL FXD!
Only right I share some of my news, the rest you all know you can read in my journal.
AFM... Well,I have been gone a few days, in that time, AF arrived on Thursday midday, then we were out looking at homes, and then there was Easter yesterday (Happy Easter - belated) and today, absolutely no spotting, no sign of AF as she ended yesterday evening. So, my doc was called Friday and I have my HSG scheduled for this Thursday! Soooooo much going on. But I am happy AF has come and gone and we are looking at TTC again in a couple weeks. Looks like I have a testing date, tentatively... YAY, seems like forever. Hoping we have some NYs Babies brewing ladies!
I got my first positive for ovulation smiley face on March 31st. We inseminated twice on the 31st and then once on the 1st. It is now the 8th...how soon can I expect a possible positive pregnancy test? I know they say to wait until your missed period but do I really have to wait that long? Also, I don't know how many days cycle I am as this is my first round and I never really paid attention so I'm not exactly sure on which date I'm supposed to start. Any insight?
morriang- since it is the 9th i say wait til the 14th of april then test (:
That is what we were thinking too...SO hard to wait! Going to be so upsetting to get a negative so you are probably right, better to wait as long as I possibly can for better odds of getting a positive test!
