Our Fight Against Infertility

We have been married for 10 yrs. We have a beautiful 9yr old daughter, who is just amazing. We are ready for another addition to our family. We are ready to go, we just need a little help. With two failed IVF cycles and an IUI, we arent sure whats next!

November IUI

So I started AF and went to see our RE on day 3 of my period. He did an ultrasound and checked for cyst's. Everything looked good. I started clomid that night, 100mg for 5 days. This is SOOOO much easier that the IVF that I forget we are evening trying anything this month! I go back on Nov. 4th for another ultrasound, to check follicles. He said he is hoping for 2 good ones on my right ovary. So we will see. It looks like they will do the IUI on Nov. 9th! So I just wait for now. I am really looking forward to Halloween this Friday. We are doing a big neighborhood party. It will be a blast!
Happy Halloween!!!!

Plan B

Well, it look like we will be trying iui next month! It seems very strange to go from IVF to IUI, but I will try anything! The thought behind this is that my eggs are such poor quality that when they are outside of my body they die, they aren't strong enough to survive. So now we wait for AF and I will go for an ultrasound. I will then start meds to produce more eggs, wait and then take a HCG trigger shot to make me ovulate. The hope is I will get enough eggs on my right to make this work. My left tube is damaged. I don't have too much hope for this cycle, but you never know. I will not give up!
