AF arrived... news
Fri, 08-21-2009 - 9:39am

Well, The witch showed up at 4am this morning. Not a really fun way to wake up.

Dh and I talked last night. We are going to go another cycle. We had concerns though, because this cycle is going to be a IUI cycle.

Our first concern was. Since I started AF today my IUI will fall on Labor Day weekend. The concern was that the wouldn't be open.

Well I called this morning to let them know that AF started. Then asked about the IUI. She said they will be there that weekend. They are only closed 3 days a year. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. SO that was a relief.

Our second concern is that DH's sperm is the problem. The nurse said. WIth doing the IUI they will know the count and all when they wash his sperm. And if it looks low we have the option not to do the IUI but she said she would recommend we do it if that would be the case. Just because it only takes one. :o)

So I go in on Monday for my baseline US and blood work. And will start the clomid on Tuesday. Then a midcycle and the trigger shot .. Which if it goes like the last two will be around Sept 4th. and IUI either Saturday the 5th if it shows i am going to surge on my own or if I trigger it will be Sunday morning the 6th.

So, I am looking and thinking on the positive side of this that by the end of May 2010 we will have a new little one.. Even though it will be born close to my sons birthday. He is okay with that.. ;O)

Hi Wendy,

I'm glad you and DH came up with a plan that you both feel good about! I love the positive thinking, I'm trying really hard to do the same this cycle.

Good luck!
