bls81 I am actually 15 dpiui today. I did a HPT this morning and it was BFN. I went ahead and tested myself before I go in for my blood work today that way if it comes back BFN with them to I would have already known...I guess not as big of a let down. This is my first IUI w/clomid, progesterone suppositories and ovidril. I am really hoping that it worked. I have had 2 miscarriages 1st August 30, 2007 2nd December 11, 2007 both with Ovidril as a trigger only. We found out that DH has low count with low motility so now its on to IUIs for us. We have been ttc for 2 years so I hope something happens soon.

I am so bummed. I went in for my blood work and it was NEGATIVE. I am so confused. I had my IUI on January 24th. I usually have 28 day cycles which I was due for on monday the 4th it never showed. Now 4 days later no AF and a BFN agh....Doc says come in again for another beta on monday the 11th. We will just have to wait and see what happens.

Mommyhopeful- I'm sorry about the BFN. I've heard that the Progesterone Suppositories can delay af as well, that could be it :-{ Maybe you will have good luck on Monday when you have another beta! Maybe you jsut take a long time to build up HCG? Im keeping my everything crossed for you!

MOMMYYHOPEFUL- did the Dr. mention anything about coming off the progesterone?


Mommyhopeful - February 9

Well I have left a message for my doc to call me today in regards to stopping the progesterone. I should here from him anytime. It just confuses me because I have been on progesterone before and started my AF on the 28th day of my cycle exactly like I usually do. This is just so confusing. Well I will know something by monday I suppose.

Well before the Doc ever got a chance to call Af arrived agh well I guess we just will have to try again......

So I tested yesterday at 10dpiui / 11 days post trigger and got a BFP...albeit the test was definitely lighter than the control...but a faint line is still a positive from what I hear/ read. So being guarded since I also had the trigger shot 11 days prior I wasnted to test again this morning. I did and the line is definitely darker than yesterdays. I am trying to stay guarded b/c of the trigger shot, but today is 11dpiui/ 12 dp trigger, so it had to be out of my system by now! Right?
I will test again tomorrow and Monday than at 7am Tuesday I go in for my beta. I don't quite know how to feel just yet...b/c again I'm staying guarded and I don't know how to be pregnant. I mean I've gotten the sorry speech soooo many times from the doctor over the past 14 months. I don't know how to actually get a positive! Such a mixed bag of feelings. So for now we are just thankful that this may have really worked for us....finally.
Anybody else have success stories of IUI #1 and / or success stories of any IUI? I would love to hear!

Hey all, I just tested and got a BFP!!! My very first IUI and it worked holy cow, husband thinks I should test again tomorrow. I might., I will have to go to cvs and get another test. I still can't believe it, not even sure how to feel, we've been trying so long.... I'm spreading my babywish and dust to all of you as well.

how common is it for the docs to do medicated IUI. I am going to the doctor for an appointment soon, but I have never had a problem with getting pg in the past. My current husband is the reason for IUI. Would they try unmedicaed first or just go straight for the medicated? Brandy


ZenGirl - February 16

our RE gave us the final say with the decision but when we chose medicated, she decided what that would entail.


bls81 - February 16

Well my first beta Tues (14dpiui) was 198 and my second thurs (16dpiui) was 490! It more than doubled in 48 hrs! So now I go for my first sono on Tues 2/19, I can't wait! aprilntom did you test? Did you get AF?


faith4ever - February 17

hi everyone! This is my first IUI with injectables. Was on clomid for 3 cycles but it didn't work. I'm on my 12dpiui and in 2 days my 2WW will be over. I hope this cycle works for me. I've been praying and trying my best to stay positive. Wish me luck!! babywish and bls81- congratulations to the both of you!


Jen T. - February 20

Yep!! IUI worked the first time. We were relieved to find something that finally worked after 2 + years of TTC with unexplained infertility. My son is now 10 months old. So glad we kept trying when we felt nothing would work! Good luck to you all!!!
