Failed Again

I am down in the dumps, big time. I can't believe this is happening. I have lost all hope of having another child. What is going on?! Why is my body failing us over and over again? I hate this so much. And on top of all this, I have to suffer through migraines for the next week or two. I do have a neurologist appointment for January, but since he is a well-liked doctor, I can't get in any sooner.

I don't know what we will do next as far as cycling goes. We have some Follistim leftover so we could do a 4th IUI. We have discussed IVF too. I'll talk to Dr. A when my next cycle starts.

As usual, here's the recap of this IUI. I didn't keep close track of my follicles this time. I was trying to just let whatever happens happen. No scrutinizing, comparing, stressing, etc. All I know was that I had three to four mature follicles at trigger time on CD9.

IUI #3
November/December 2013
CD3 - CD8: 125 IU Follistim

CD1 11/22/13
CD3 baseline u/s
CD6 u/s and b/w
CD8 u/s and b/w = E2 was 268
CD9 u/s and Novarel injection = {lining 9.9mm}
CD10 u/s and IUI 3.1 = (R: 27mm and 20mm / L: 19mm and 17mm}  Post wash sperm count: 29.5 million
CD11 u/s and IUI 3.2 =  Post wash sperm count: 25 million
7dpo Progesterone b/w = 26


  1. I'm sorry. :( I'm eager to see what your doctor says about options for next cycle. IUI #4 worked before and you ended up with a beautiful baby boy. :) Hope is not lost. Hang in there hon. ::hug::

  2. Im sorry =( I could have written this post. We arent even trying because things are so hopeless right now. 3 IVFs have failed since we had Foster andI just cant keep throwing this money that we dont have away. It is so hard to give up what we truly want (another child) though =(

  3. Sorry to see this dear. :( Don't lose hope...I just have a good feeling for you, that there IS another beautiful child in your future.

  4. I've been away from blogging for so long, and am starting to get back into it. I am so sorry that things aren't working out yet :( Please don't lose hope! You guys are in my thoughts and prayers! <3

  5. Oh Im so sorry to read this. Don't lose hope I believe this will happen for you. Hoping you get some relief soon for your migraines.

  6. I'm so sorry, Megs. Hugs, love ya!
