About to Start 1st DI insem

Hello,

I am so happy that I actually found this board because it totally relates to everything and has answered a lot of questions, but I do have a few more questions and concerns. First of all, I have heard a few of you guys mention baby aspirin, what is that all about? and should I be taking it and when??d Secondly, I do my first DI insem next month and I am a little nervous has anyone been successful on the first try or does it normally take 5 , 6 or more tries. I know that really depends I guess I am more so looking for words of encouragement.

Thanks!

Congrats on your 1st attempt at DI. I know it must have been a long journey to get here. I can't answer your first question and as for your second question - each person is different. It took us three cycles. The first two were with no meds and the third (the one we conceived) I did clomid and a trigger shot. Good luck with your 1st cycle.

Everyone really is different, AND in my experience, every time you try can be very different too. When we first tried DI, I took Clomid, shots, and we did back to back attempts (DI 2 days in a row) to increase our chances of getting pregnant. It took us a full year to get pregnant. It was a real roller coaster of emotions but once our son was born we totally forgot about it.

When our son was almost a year old we decided to try again for baby #2, not knowing if it would take us another year (or more) to get pregnant. This time, I got pregnant on the very first try! The results? 2 boys who are only 20 months apart in age! Life is hectic but so much fun!

Good luck to you!

i really appreciate the feedback and it gives me hope that even if don't happen on the very first try it may happen eventually. Also can someone tell me about the baby aspirin and what that does for you and if and when I should take them?
