On to IUI

So my blood tests were negative - no big surprise. It helps to be in the same general area when you are ovulating. I have to go and pick of prometrium and get AF started (supposed to take even in AF starts). CD1 I call in for my u/s. Things are happening!

Sorry your beta was negative. The positive news is that you can get things started. Things are getting exciting.

I was not really expecting it to be positive. I am not totally sure I O'd, with all the stress it would not surprise me if I didn't. I am good. Ordered some ICs so I can test out the trigger and keep testing Biggrin I am addicted to testing.

Sorry about your beta...but I'll be following you with the IUI. That might be our next step if this cycle doesn't work out.

OMG, OMG, OMG!!!

Today is CD1 and I have my u/s tomorrow!!! Craziness! This is happening!!

I have to see if my one friend can take me to the hospital and to the pharmacy that I need to get my meds from. There is one pharmacy in the city that keeps everything in stock, my regular pharmacy would take 2 weeks to get everything in Sad

Did AF come on her own then?

Yes, but they wanted me to take the progesterone to "clean everything out" so I am still taking it.

It's all so exciting when you have new hope. I remember the first time DH and I DTD after his vasectomy reversal I didn't sleep a wink that night because I was so excited that there was actually a chance I could get pregnant. I remember laying there so still. Little did I know at that time that it wouldn't be just as easy as a surgery.

The u/s showed no big cysts. Had some blood taken, picked up my meds - holy expensive, one cycle is $1000, I only had to pay $17 (Sean's plan needed pre-approval for hcg but mine covered 80% of it). Unless I get a call that there is something wrong with my blood work then I take my first needle between 6-8 pm tomorrow night. The pharmacist went over how to take the meds and such.

Next u/s is on November 13th.

Glad your u/s went well and you can get things started tomorrow. What meds will you be taking? It's nice to have the advantage of your insurance helping pay for the meds since that is one of the more expensive things of IF treatments.

The first cartridge is out of the fridge so it can warm up before injection between 6-8 pm! Crazy!

OK, did not feel anything. I was nervous putting the pen together, I think it was more excitement. I was a bit shaky to put in the first needle but I felt nothing so it is all good. DH had to hide out in our bedroom until it was done!

Take it DH doesn't handle needles well. DH doesn't like getting shots but he's ok giving them. When I got my hepatitis A vaccine I made the nurse give it to me instead of DH. Even though he's a physician, he just doesn't do shots enough for me to feel comfortable enough for him to give it to me. But now that I think of it he did give me all my PIO shots and I was good with that.

My husband offered to give me mine, but I was worried he would pass out. I was still a little shaky giving myself my first shots - but seeing as I tried diabetes it was a huge thing for me to do. Made me realize that it is not that big of a deal, especially to do something like that once per day - at least not to me. Now, finger sticks.... that is a whole other story.

Sean is more worried it would hurt me. Find it interesting that You would find it difficult to do. I am still a little shaking until I press the needle in. And finger sticks are a pain! I have been doing them for 11 years and still hate them. My one glycometer allowed me to test on my arm, so much nicer. The nurses in the antinatal ward wanted it for the babies as it took such a tiny drop. Nor sure what you meant by "tried diabetes"

Added on to all the other meds - double ear infection with both ear drums rupturing! My first ear infection was when I was 19 years old, wonder if I am too old for tubes, LOL.

Ouch Margaret!! Hope you can catch a break soon and feel better. Seems like you've been sick a lot lately.

We keep passing the flu back and forth Sad I usually get one really bad ear infection a year, I have too much fluid in my inner ear to begin with and it seems to get infected more easily. I wish I had normal middle ear infections. I think why I have been so sick lately is with the quick travel and the stress.

Going to bed as soon as Sean gets back from the grocery store.
