Hi Ladies - I guess I'm the first one here!! Last cycle was super short, prob b/c of the bad eggs and cancelling the IUI cycle... and I thought AF arrived on the 2nd, but the next day I had NOTHING. and started again on the 4th. Doc office said it didn't really matter, I started follistim again on the 6th, and go in on Friday for my first U/S. Hoping for some good follicles!!!!! I'm thinking that I'll have my 5th IUI sometime next week!!! EDD would be 10/9. (both my dad and brother were born in Oct) and my wedding anniversary is 10/16!
Hoping that I'm the only one here, and that everyone has Sept babies
Hey, I'm here too now.

My Ovulation Chart
Starting clomid today. Not sure how this will pan out, I need the follies to get nice and big quickly because we have a long weekend next weekend and I am due to O over that weekend so the best we can do is a CD 13 IUI or a CD17IUI, I tend to O naturally on CD15or 16. The receptionist at the clinic basically told me I knew nothing when I mentioned that and said that you ovualate aon all different days, Umm no, I have been charting for a few years now, I know when I ovulate
I'm starting to feel like a veteran...moving over here for cycle 12. AF isn't flowing yet, but I'm spotting and crampy and know it's a matter of minutes before it's full on.
This also means that I begin cycle monitoring in the next few days. What exactly are they looking for on the first few days of your cycle? I forgot to ask those details.
AF started today so that puts me in Oct. Oct 20th if I conceive this month. DH and I have been trying for over 2 years naturally and this will be our first IUI cycle. I am glad I am not the only one in this month who is doing an IUI I'm sure I will have lots of question to ask. I go on Wed for my first BW/US and then Saturday I start my many many days of BW/US.
Good luck to everyone
Good luck Marianne. Sounds like lots of blood work for you, each clinic does things a little differently I guess, my clinic due to my travel tries to help me out by limiting the amount of trips I need which often means maybe blood work instead of ultrasond, trigger injection at hokme etc.
Julie, I have never had monitoring done so early in my cycle, I get some montoring from cd10/11 to iui and that is all. Hope this cycle bodes well for us all
Wendy it does seem like at lot of blood work compared to what I read about other women. I go in CD3 and then CD6 until the day after I O which should be CD 15ish and it's blood work and ultrasound each time!
Julie I think they start early in the cycle because that's when your body has 'reset' it self. So your hormone levels are back to normal for you, it gives them a base line for what your body will do for the rest of the cycle.
