Second try for IUI

Post by Alleycat on Fri 9 Sep 2011 - 18:38

09 September 2011 (CD1) - heavy AF

Ok I am back. AF started today at 15:00 and let me tell you I am in hell!! I don't know if it is still last cycle's meds that is working out but hell it is bad .... AF

The plan of action for this cycle:

CD 2 - Half a clomid (50g) (And must go in for scan to make sure I am "cleaned out")
CD 3 - Half a clomid (50g) + 112 Units Gonal F injection
CD 4 - Half a clomid (50g) + 112 Units Gonal F injection
CD 5 - Half a clomid (50g) + 112 Units Gonal F injection
CD 6 - Half a clomid (50g) + 112 Units Gonal F injection
CD 7 - NOTHING
CD 8 - 112 Units Gonal F injection
CD 9 - SCAN

Now I can only pray, I am doing everything I can and I am totally killing my bank balance but keeping the eye on the price.

Please let it work this time Come on

10 September 2011 (CD2) ~ Heavy AF

Took first dose of clomid and went for the scan. All clear and ready to go, tomorrow is the first injection!!

I am excited and more scared than before, was updating my mom this morning and had to admit to her that his is all just getting to much for me. My body is in a total shamble of the pass few months drugs and stress.

She is a little bit against all this meds and procedures and just want me to let it go and let it happen on it's own by the grace of God.

I think I just need an holiday! Will consider after this cycle to maybe take a month or two of no drugs and just BE. But first I will do everything I can to make this cycle work and MAYBE it will be the last cycle .....

good luck holding thumbs for this cycle.

Dont let your mom get to you, some people need help falling pregnant and we are lucky there is help out there. Just wait and relax cant fix all the problems out there.

A break if this cycle does not work sounds like a good idea but hopefully it will not be necessary.

Thanks everybody!!

DC - no my doctor do not want to give me anything for estrogin! I got upset with him but he told me nicely that he is the doctor and I must trust him.....

HELLO PLAYGIRL ... *drukkies* mis jou stukkend!!! how are you doing?

Kerry, ag I know about my mom, she just cares and I love her for bits but she just will never understand this but it is ok!! She is my bestfriend and I cannot take her opinion away even if I wanna kill about it .... hahahaha


12 September 2011 (CD4) ~ AF winding down
Taken next clomid with another injection, the head ache were better today but I was feeling so sick the whole day!! And then this afternoon the mood swings started, EVERYBODY works on my nerves and then I get so MAD with myself for the littlest thing that I ended up in tears. I know the meds are working me and I do not want to complain coz it is real proof that things are going on inside me but it just gets to me somedays.

It is like I miss the old me .....

13 September 2011 (CD5) ~ AF gone with the wind!!! yah



Today is much better, pills and injections taken. Not feeling so sick today just a little head ache but nothing I cannot handle.



So far so good!! Had a good night with liefie's little one so she has put plasters on the raw places with all of her love!!! Over the past month or two we have grown much closer to one another, I don't know if it is because she is growing up or maybe I am allowing her closer to me ... maybe both. But she does make not having a child of my own better to cope with!



The other part is that I picked up that liefie is really stressed out about this cycle, I am not sure if the last failed cycle made it more real for him but I can see it is getting to him. I just have no clue how to make him feel better about this ....

AI AC, my maatjie, ek sien nou eers jou post!

Well I hope the meds stop making you ill, it's the worst feeling in the world! I fainted in the gym when I was on clomid, soooo embarrassing!!

I'm glad to hear you're giving it another go this month and lets cross all crossables that this is THE month!

Maybe try to talk to DH to find out exactly what it is that's bothering him, maybe he doesn't understand something that you can shed some light on or maybe he just needs to talk about his feelings. Men donít handle these things the same way we do, and even when you're pregnant you'll see how different it will be for him.

Good luck with everything and thanx for your daily updates, I'll follow your progress from now on!!

16 September 2011 (CD8)

Last injection taken, I really had another bad day of headache and vomiting but hopefully it is over now that the meds are finished.

It is starting to affect everything (I think it is all the meds the past year), my skin is so bad, pimples oily, same with my hair ... in such a state. I have picked up even more wait .... keeping the eye on the price ....

17 September 2011 (CD9)

I was so stress out before the doctorís appointment.... it felt like if I am going to breathe that everything will just fall to pieces, me will fall to pieces and that I will never find the pieces again to put myself together!!

The verdict:

Two follies one on each side, the one are 16mm and the other was 19mm, my lining was long (never seen it that long before) but still thin (5.5mm). Doctor said I must not worry about that now coz it is still early in my cycle. He did put me on estrogen tabs, 2mg in the mornings and 2mg in the evenings. Then I was off to do the bloods. Doctor phoned to say bloods are in order and WE ARE READY TO GO!!!! We did the ovidrel trigger at ten on Saturday night, that was a nasty one, it burnt like fire.

So Monday morning (CD11) DH must deliver his sperm at the clinic at 9:30 and then I must be there at 11:00 for the insemination .....

This is it!!!

Yay !!! So glad everything is working out so well and that dr FINALLY put you on estrogen ! I was always put onto estrogen for all my IUI's and IVF 's - it helps build a beautiful lining , and I never had any lining issues.

So excited for you and pray that this is the month for you ! Good luck !
