Cysts, again?!?

MjAxMy0xZjU2NjEwN2VmOGZmNzRjAt 12dpiui I took another HPT and it was negative, and I just knew that this cycle was over and IUI #3 had failed. I stopped taking my progesterone and had my follow up appointment this morning. They made me pee in a cup for a urine pregnancy test. Typical protocol, but just felt like a slap in the face….again. Then I met with my RE, he suggested we go ahead and do an ultrasound today to check for cysts to determine what we would do next. Looks like I have 2 cysts, so I have to take a cycle off.

Baseline ultrasound

Feeling much more hopeful today

Today we had our IUI#2 follow up appointment. If it had worked today would have been our first beta test, but since it didn’t we just met with our RE in his office. R came with me today, and I’m really glad he did. I feel like today was the most thorough conversation we’ve ever had with our RE. He suggested we move onto IUI with injectables or IVF. Since we switched insurance, and as soon as our deductible has been met (not too much longer) 70% of IUI’s will be paid for we’ve decided to stick with our original plan of several more IUI’s before considering alternative options. When the RE started going into the risks of triplets or more with injectables could feel R’s anxiety. He was literally squirming in his seat, lol. Continue reading


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? Continue reading
