Still TTC after 2 years

~Russell & Cass~

We have been TTC for 2 years now and I am trying to stay hopeful. We took Clomid last summer (3 months) and then haven't had insurance til' now. I see my new OB/GYN this Friday the 24th of February and I might need Clomid again. Last cycle was anno and 41 days long. I am CD14 now and waiting to ~O~. We are using PreSeed, DH no baths, OPK's, and I am drinking greentea etc. I hope and pray that we are successful before I get too much older. I am now 36 (DH 30) and don't want to get too much older for TTC.

I am hoping we can get our BFP, we had two m/c's right away when we started TTC and now no BFP for a year and a half Sad

God Speed!

IUI here we come!

Well we didn't get pg last cycle. Today is CD1 and I am looking forward to this new cycle. I saw my new OB/GYN and he is so great! We are going ahead with IUI this cycle and it has me hopeful! Smile CD5 I will take clomid through CD9, then u/s CD10 to check for follicles. I am drinking green tea, taking vitex, etc. DH has is SA yesterday (his 3rd) and the results were great Smile

Volume - 4.0
Motility- 70%
Count - 66 million
Morphology- 80% normal


The only problem is he has 50+ WBC's (infection) in his semen. Dr. Hudson is out until this Thursday and I can't wait find out more about it. Once the u/s shows good follicles we go in for the IUI followed immediately by an HCG shot to make me ovulate, then repeat the IUI in two days (no shot) progresterone at CD21, and hopefully get our BFP Smile

Well tomorrow is my first u/s to check for follicles, CD10 Smile I will also get an E2 blood work done. I am hoping for good results! I have been really frisky lately with lots of creamy cm so hopeful Clomid has me really going this cycle. Russell is taking his antibiotics. I hope we can do the IUI soon and get our BFP. PreSeed should come in the mail tomorrow or so and we will use that too to increase our chances Smile COME ON BFP!

Well I had two really big follicles Smile 4 cm one on each side Smile My E2 level was 262 and I saw my doctor the next day (Tues) and they gave me my trigger shot and had me come back 6 hours later at 1 pm and did my first IUI. OUCH! It hurt and I cramped and cramped! Sad My doctor had me come back the next day at 2 pm for my second IUI, more cramping..... but now it is done and I had a huge temp spike this morning Smile We have been Bding to add more spermies to the pot. I really, really, really hope this works! The cost was more than I was told originally. Instead of just $69.00 per sperm washing, I had to pay for the HCG shot and the insemination, that is not what I was originally told. But I paid it, and here I am. I would be so happy if this works! I really do not see how it couldn't. I had good eggies, DH had 80% motile sperm for the first IUI and 60% for the 2nd. My lining was good, and I feel I ovulated in time. I pray those spermies find the eggie and it sticks! Now I go for a progesterone check CD 21 (3/31/06) and then on CD 28 (4/7/06) the pg blood test.

I just really want this to be it!

This is my worse 2ww ever! I am going crazy wondering if the IUI worked or not. I had my progesterone done Friday and it was 25.5! which is great, they look for 14+. I had a blood serum done 6dpo because I was ill (anxiety attack) and it was negative. Yesterday at 9dpo I tested and got a BFN Sad I am gonna try to wait til' this next Friday for my HCG titer. I hate those BFN's! They really hurt my feelings. I started having nausea last night and it lasted through the night and I still have it. Tried to eat and it has made it worse. I do not want to start thinking pregnancy. I am pretty sure it is from progesterone. Progesterone causes all of these pg symptoms and when AF comes and estrogen takes over, I feel great again. This 2ww is getting to me, I want to know now! I want to POAS! I am losing my mind. It is not good to want something so bad. I need peace and calm and to put my just trust in God.

5 days and counting til' Beta.

Well my IUI failed and I quit TTC completely in April 2006..... well June the 13th I discovered that I am pregnant. I pray this little bean sticks. I have had m/c's before and do not want to repeat history.

God Speed!
