no_im_not_pregnant_tee_shirts-re6624c992d4f403fa1b5ff48ee0c7771_8n2rj_512Well, not only did IUI #1 not work but now I have a cyst on my right ovary from the Clomid so we are forced to take this next cycle off. It doesn’t hurt, and it’s not bad. It’s actually pretty common with Clomid. It should go away on its own, but if you get pregnant while you have one there could be serious complications, which is the reason for the mandated time off.

What now? I’ll stop taking the progesterone suppositories and AF should arrive within 2 days. Also any day between CD5-11 I’m going to have the HSG test performed to make sure my tubes are opened. RE said he has no reason to believe they’re closed (b/c of my previous ย numbers) but said since we wouldn’t be TTC this cycle it would be a good time to make sure. Then wait for AF again. Hopefully we’ll be doing IUI #2 in January. So for ย now I just sit back and wait some more. I’m going to try and relax (yea right) and focus on weight loss and exercise this month (horrible idea to start this around the holidays but what else am I going to do?!?).

Please continue to send positive thoughts and prayers our way. Today has been an awful day. One of those teary days where once the tears started they didn’t turn off. I really appreciate everyone’s support, it means so much to me!

  1. Ugh. I’m so so sorry. It’s just awful. Sending you lots of peace and love. I hope you get to take good care of yourself.

  2. So sorry to hear. Thinking about you guys today! Stay positive- I’m also on the ‘get healthy’ kick in between ttc. Not easy around this time of year, but focus on the important end goal! Hugs! XX

  3. Hi Jen,
    Keep on staying strong. Emotionally, it is hard but the outcome will be such a blessing. It’s okay to cry, let it all out. What helped me was the support of everyone, talk to family and friends to get you thru. I pray that God will give you your heart desires.
    I started weight watchers during my fertility process. I felt like eating healthier and losing weight helped allot especially with PCOS to get pregnant.

  4. Boo! I’m sorry! We will be taking December off too if we don’t get a BFP this month and I’m trying to look forward to all the wine and coffee I will be drinking to make it not as bad. Red wine is good for you, totally acceptable during your health kick ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Well, I’m hoping you don’t have to take a break at all….but if you do at least you’ll be in good company! Girl yea, red wine will help get me through the holidays!

  5. Hey, I had one of those days yesterday. I was supposed to start my first IUI cycle on Friday only to find out from the nurse that the IUI approval from my health insurance hadn’t gone through yet. I was so frustrated because the nurse should not have given me hope that we would be starting this month when she knew all along that it could take weeks for this approval to go through. So, now we have to wait ’til January, too. I like the “I’m not pregnant” t-shirt ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I’m sorry to hear this!! Will your insurance pay for 100% of your IUI? That’s awesome if they do! Hopefully January’s IUI goes smoothly for you. LOL….it’s so not funny that it’s funny.

      • Good morning ๐Ÿ™‚ My insurance pays 50%. The nurse at SGF said we could do it this month if we pay out-of-pocket…uhmmm…if I had the means to pay out-of-pocket I wouldn’t have waited this long to go to a fertility clinic…anyhow, that’s a whole different story…lol. Thanks for your quick response! I’ve just started my blog yesterday and had no idea there’s such a great infertility section on here which I can relate to all too well! I will have to work on my blog though. But I’m not ready yet to write about our infertility issues yet. Only family knows about that so far. Keeping fingers crossed for both us for next month ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Well, it’s still something, so that’s cool! Yes, the infertility bloggers are great….they’ve been a great source of support for me. I’ve told a few friends about my blog, but I’m basically anonymous, which is nice!

  6. Hubby (42) and I (38) have been ttc for 2 years and I never thought we would have to go this route since my brother has 5 kids and my sister has 4 which doesn’t help my mental state if you know what I mean. I did have a mc in May after 10 weeks. I know I should see this as a positive that I was able to become pregnant but considering my age it can make you panic a bit. I wish I had met my hubby sooner…but it is what it is. Just wanted to give you a bit of a background since I haven’t posted any of that on my blog yet…I’m not just some stalker…lol.

    • Yea, I know exactly what you mean, although age isn’t really an issue for us just yet as I’m 27 and hubby is 32. My younger sister is now pregnant with her third. Yes, I guess you’re right it is a positive thing that you were able to get pregnant! Hopefully all you need is a little bump, and that IUI will be the bump you need. LOL, I don’t think you’re a stalker.
