Waiting to o

CD 4 here, one day of clomid done. We'll do IUI this cycle, so I'm guessing next week on Wednesday or Thursday. Keeping my fingers crossed that this is our month Smile

Fingers crossed.
I am here now, not holdingnout hope really anymore, just going through the motions as hubby doesn't want to give up. I don't really want to either but the emotional toll this is taking is not doing me any good. I had a pap smear the other week which was perfect but shethought I may have had thrush so did a swab and that has come back positive for group b strep which can cause miscarraige apprantly so maybe a cause of the very early losses/ chem pregnanies but can't be certain. I had other bloods run as well but they won't give results over the phone so need to make an appt but the doctor is an hour and a half away. If nothing comes of that I am going to ask to be tested fkr MTFHR ( I think I got that right). Beyond that not sure of our next step, we can't really afford ivf so trying to be ok with just having my one amazing boy. Now if he would stop asking for siblings I might be doing better at it

Wow Wendy, that's interesting about the strep b!
I'm sitting waiting to find out if we can do IUI today. I should have done it yesterday, but we were out of town when the dr called with blood results to say come in, and I hadn't got a cup for the collection (and we can't work out the timing easily for DH to come with me). My timing is a bit early this month. Usually I o on CD 13 which is today, so waiting extra day should have been perfect. But the dr seems to think I could have o'd yesterday which means we missed our timing this cycle.
So now I have to wait for bloodwork results before they'll wash the sperm for the IUI
Wish me luck!

Good luck. I asked the nurse about it whennshe called and told me if it could have any effects on fertility. She said it can cause miscarraige and pre term labour. I haven't had much time to do research into it. I did find. One study which is a bit older now with a tiny sample size dealing with strep b and ivf clients. I need to research more but am considering the antibiotics to clear it up just in case

I ended up not doing the IUI today. Dr wasn't convinced that I was surging and decided instead to
Give me a trigger shot and to go back tomorrow for IUI. Sucks because I ended up spending 2 hours + waiting. So, back again tomorrow. Poor DH, this is a lot to ask of him, volume wise!

IUI done. 4 eggs, 8 million sperm with good mobility. Odds are good that we'll be successful this try, right?
