Guess I'll get the party started over here. I'll be on my own this time as the clinic will be closed more than likely when I am due to ovulate . Considering my luck so far I think this will just be a holding month. We have one more IUI and then I guess it's IVF, the doctorhasn't given me a good indication on that though and it will be a few months so we can save up for both the procedure and drugs
Joining you again and cheering you on...
We will continue with Vitex again. I seemed to have ovulated on this.
Motherhood after Infertility
I'm here too.
So dying of envy today. one friend just found out she's pregnant (our mutual friend Wendy), another just announced on FB that she's having twins and one of my best friends finds out the gender of her baby today. *sigh* I'm absolutely thrilled for all of them, just depressed/sad for myself.

My Ovulation Chart
I know how you feel Mel. I just got an Invite in the mail to a baby shower, from a friend of mine who was due a week after me before my miscarriage. With a note that says 'I really hope to see you there, you have to come!" I just don't know that I can do it.
Hi Ladies, I'll be joining you here
Wendy - have you done 1 or 2 IUI's? (I haven't been posting lately, so I haven't kept up) Sucks that you can't do another one this month!
AFM - well last cycle was our first on injectibles, but only created 1 egg! Anyway - BFN and AF showed up, while on vacation! (luckily my bad mood only lasted 1 night, and I was better the next day, b/c I was surrounded by goof friends/family and sunshine and the beach!!) anyway, the 1 good thing that I took away was my luteal phase was 13 days this cycle! (it's only been between 11-12 the past 3 IUI cycles) and barely had any spotting beforehand! Now I don't know if it's the acupuncture, vitex, vitamin B-6, or combination of them all!
I go in to doc tomorrow for more bloodwork and US to see if I can do injectibles again with IUI...I'm going to ask them to "up" my dose since last cycle we only had 1 egg. (and I ovulate on my own, so why not get more "bang for your buck" when using these meds!)
Fingers crossed for everyone!!
oh yes ladies, can def relate to the friends telling you they are pregnant....I actually "quit" FB. One of the reasons b/c of so many people's announcement. I just couldn't take it. I too also just received an invite to baby shower for a friend. (who got married in May, and immediately got pregnant on their honeymoon!!!)
HUGS to everyone!! it WILL happen for us!!!!
I'm not officially here, but not feeling super optimistic about staying in August. Mainly I'm not sure when I o'd - it was either CD 13 or 15. If CD13, we have a good chance. If CD15, there's little chance - we didn't DTD close enough.
Anyways, BFN this morning (AF is due Friday if I o'd on CD13) so it's likely a matter of time. :-s
We just did our second, one more left and then they recalculate their plan of action so not sure what that will be, I think possibly IVF. Not sure that will be doable for us simply because of the time and cost involved, we have the money there but it is for other things. A Mum at DS's daycare had three iui's with the same clinic using frozen sperm and she never got pregnant, lucky for her while they discussed IVF she fell pregnant naturally.
