When is your 1st scan Loopy? Let me know how it goes.
Just out of interest, how did you find the IUI? Did you have any side affects to the drugs. I start taking the Nor... something or other (cant remember the full name) on Sunday. This is supposed to bring on my period at the right time to enable to me to start taking the other drugs at the right time. All very confusing isnt it x

Hi Kelebel2901 our 1st scan is on the 28th May so 10 days and counting I'll let you know how we get on.
I found the IUI ok tbh hun. I was taking suprecur and gonal f injections, the only trouble I had was bloating and constipation (sorry if too much info). I didn't take anything to bring on my period I just had to wait for AF to arrive and then call the clinic. Good luck I bet you can't wait to get started.
Any questions feel free to ask, I think I ask a million and on when I was just getting started x

Hi, MrsB, have you changed your name?
How are you going? ok i hope x
I went for my 11 day scan on Tuesday and it it turned out I had 9 follicles. The nurse said I have reacted too well the the drugs and am too fertile, so they wont go ahead with the procedure this month. I felt so disappointed i nearly cried infront of the nurse , I'll have to start again nxt month but they will reduce the dosage of the drugs I take. Fingers crossed it goes better nxt time x

Hi kelbel so sorry for the late reply I've been having trouble getting on the site. Yes I have changed my name (long story) lol!
So sorry to hear that you had 9 follicles, that was a worry for me too as I had 5 at one stage but they put me on a very low dose and it took me 30 days to be ready for the IUI but definitely think the slow approach is better rather than to risk having is abandoned. When I was reading up before my IUI a lot of ladies said to look at the first one as a trial at least now they know how your body responds so that next time they can get the dose smack on. When are u starting again??
I'm ok thanks I had my 12 week scan on Thursday and everything is looking great. So nice to be over the 12 week mark as you can't help worrying.
Good luck for next time keep me posted x

Hi Mrs B, Really glad 12 week scan was ok. Time has gone so quick since you announced your bfp, cant believe its been 12 weeks already. I bet it seems even more real now?
Im going for an 11 day scan on Monday so I am hoping and praying that all is ok so we can go ahead this month. Ive only taken the clomid this time so hopefully will not have too many follicles. I couldnt bear to be disappointed again.

kelbel2901 it seemed to go really slow in the beginning because I was wishing the days away to get to 12 weeks but things seem to be speeding up now I suppose its because the scans have put my mind at ease a little.
Wishing you the very best of luck for this month hun let me know how you get on x

Hi Mrs B,
Hope you are well.
I had my iui today, but came away slightly disappointed . It started off well... I had 3 good sized follicles and DH's sample was good, but the nurse had trouble getting the catheter through my cervix, she said I have '2 doors' so to speak. I have no idea whether that is normal or common. I did have a feeling that there would be trouble because I couldnt have to hycosy test because of the same problem, so had to have a laparoscopy. So anyway, to reduce anymore trauma she decided to implant the sample inbetween the '2 doors' (those were her words). She said its not the ideal place, but it is further than it would normally get. So I can still be hopeful. I realise now that this is prob the reason that I havent become pregnant so far although they havent said that in so many words. I have been researching and i think I may have a posterior cervix. I have to wait the agonising 2 weeks now, but the nurse said that if it doesnt work this time, then next attempt will be done in theatre where they have better equipment to be able to get round it. I was wondering why they didnt do that this time as they wouldve known the problems I had with the hycosy. I shouldve asked really at the time. But ha ho, it is what it is, im still gonna try stay positive x
