Just want to say congrats on the 4 follies!! Sounds great to me! How big were they?
1667717 tn?1331164410
I have one that's 20 something, 18 some, and the other two are not quite there but should be by sunday, they were at 16 an 17, doc said he wants them 18 and up......

How does that sound to you? I just did my trigger shot... pat on my back, first time i did it myself thank you very much..lol.

But Ladies ... this is only our second cycle but if this doesn't work we're done, we are fine just the two of us, thought we would give it a go but we just don't have the finances keep doing it, and the doctors office want you to pay as you go...it's crazy!!

I had 4 folls and did not get pregnant, but my lining was thin and the doctor thought that might be why. A few months later I had 1 foll and a good lining and did get pregnant! It only takes 1, with 4 you should have a great chance! Best of luck to you - I hope you get a BFP!!

Had IUI today.... hoping all 4 eggs release ...sperm count 80 mil 90% motility....doc said my lining looked good too.

Just been crampy today.

That sounds awesome! All looks good so fingers crossed that this is it. All it takes is one so you've already quadrupled your chances! I hope to join you for part of the 2ww! Looking forward to the daily updates....

Hi, I had four follies this cycle, and did iui last Thursday.  I started with pain Thursday night and all day on Friday.  Let me know if you get pain and read my journal to compare. All I can say is I never hurt so bad!  Sending you lost of baby dust, you get to join me in the 2ww.

Follicle sizes definitely sound great! I had only 1 that advanced past 15 and it made it to 20 day we did IUI so that was all it took. I was told anything over 16 was good so sounds like you have some great odds! I am sure praying for you this round, I know financially it is hard to keep going. Good luck and keep me posted! 2 days down and 12 to go :)

My first IUI I had mild cramping the whole 2ww.....so far with this one i had cramping the day of ....pretty good cramping actually, been fine so far except a pinch here and there, I went to the gym tonight and I started cramping half way through, think i may have over done it....

If your hurting really really bad you might want to contact your RE, I don't know much about it but heard of a small chance of infection from IUI......

Baby dust to you and I will check out your journal!!!
1667717 tn?1331164410
That's awesome..... i just wish for the same luck... I feel a little different so far with this one than the last one....not cramping as much, not as tired and discharge is different....cervical mucus last time was thin clear the two weeks before, today it was thicker and milky ...TMI i know :/

I am not going to worry about it too much... Like I said I pray it happens but if it doesn't we'll be ok too :)

How are you doing? My cramping was mostly the day after IUI and since then feeling fine.  I have one more week until my beta, June 9. When are you doing your beta?  Sending you baby dust!

Just FYI - I had period like cramps from the day after IUI through about 9 weeks pregnant!  Cramping can be a very good sign =)
1667717 tn?1331164410
well I can do my HPT on the 12. I am now 5 days piui and I am a little more crampy today, pinch here and there and feel like i have alot of pressure "down there" I dunno... I am not too worried about it, the trigger shot played lots of tricks on me last cycle....so i just take it day by day....
Have you had any crampiness at all since the day after?

Yea your two days ahead of me...lol...any other symptoms?
1667717 tn?1331164410
Thank you for the info....makes me feel better that the cramping can be a good sign :)
What's your story.... I would like to compare?

And congrats!!!
1217293 tn?1467357944
I have had a little cramping here and there, but nothing major. I am taking progesterone this cycle.  No feel much yet, but hoping this is the cycle I get good news!!!
Sending you baby dust!

Hi,

I am doing pretty good with the cramping, not so bad this cycle, my boobs starting hurting a tad today...not severe by any means and have a pretty bad headache today but other than that no symptoms!!!  Going for my LH tomorrow so i'll let you know how that goes, have you done your LH yet?

BBD!!
1217293 tn?1467357944
My RE office doesn't do any tests during the 2ww. Beta is Thursday and I feel like it is so far away.  I am still hoping for good news, but don't seem to have any real symptoms yet.  Good luck!

My progesterone came back at 14.6 RE said that was very good...my last two progesterones last two cycles were 9 .... i don't know what this means, besides i ovulated.

I also got severe sharp pains on both sides tonight, lasted about an hour, now i'm fine, even thou I feel a mild pinch here and there now...pretty scary,, made me feel sick.

What do you think? How are you feeling?
1217293 tn?1467357944
Progesterone is good, they do want it around 15 when you get a positive beta so you are just about there.
I had a headache late afternoon that did not want to go away! Felt a sharp pain on my right for a few minutes, but not much more.
Sounds like your body is trying to do something! Sending you baby dust,

When are you going to test? I am going crazy waiting for you!!!
1667717 tn?1331164410
LOL.... I can test on Sunday!! I have been very bloated today... don't know if just gas or what but my husband was shocked to see how distended my belly was when I got home ;/ Hoping it's good news!!
Had a little more cramping today too..... I dunno... I don't want to read too much into it...
1667717 tn?1331164410
One more day!!! How are you feeling? I am excited for you.....can't wait!!
1217293 tn?1467357944
Well, mostly just sleepy which could be the progesterone. I will do beta, but so far hpt neg. How are you feeling?
Sending baby dust,

1667717 tn?1331164410
Oh man... did you test too early?

I'm really sorry, i truly hope your Beta is positive. Sleepiness is a good sign.

I feel fine, been bloated on and off, boobs are hurting sum, but it's no different from the last cycle...the only thing that was different was the distictive pain I got on Monday...but that's it.... i told my husband i don't feel like i am pregnant and I don't know if we should really continue on with this journey...

let me know about your Beta!! Hoping for good news.
