IUI #5 = BFN

Tue, 08-25-2009 - 11:15pm

So, IUI #5 was a bust. I wasn't so shocked when AF showed up today though. I POAS on Sunday just to get it out of my system. I knew it wouldn't be positive. But, I had a baby shower to go to that day, so I figured since I'd already be depressed I might as well get my money's worth. To be honest, I just feel sort of numb at this point. I'm not at all surprised I'm not pregnant and I really am not sure if it will ever happen.

The baby shower on Sunday was fun though. My friend brought her newborn baby and there were five extremely pregnant women there-- not including the one who the shower was for! I really couldn't believe it! I thought it was bad enough when we went back to work on Friday (meetings only, no students) that two teachers brought their babies that were born this spring. Really? Can't I escape this somewhere?!?!

Anyway, I was planning on doing injectables with this cycle, but I'm not going to be able to. My clinic requires that I attend a one hour class on how to mix and administer the injection. This class is given once or twice a week but only at 9am and 2pm. So, basically I would have to take a half day off of work for someone to teach me something that would basically take five minutes for a nurse to explain one on one. Grrrr... I can't miss school this early in the year. I'm already going to have to take time off for the next useless IUI, so I don't want to take time off for something unless it is absolutely necessary.

On a more positive note, my first day of school was today and I seem to have a great group of 8th graders... Hopefully they'll stay that way!

Thanks Nat. I really don't think I would have gone if I knew there were so many preggos there! She's a good friend though and my hubby and I have known her since middle school, so I would have felt guilty. Although, she is the one who told me it took her so long to get pregnant b/c she didn't time ovulation right. So, maybe that was my issue. SHE GOT PREGNANT THE SECOND MONTH OF TRYING!!! But, I guess I did let that go months ago, so no reason not to go to the shower. =)

Thanks Sally. I'm going to talk to my dr when I go in for this month's IUI. I really just feel too busy and mentally drained to call and argue with them this month. So, we'll try one more natural IUI and then hopefully move on to injectables next month. I think I am going to have DH go by himself to the class if I can't get out of it. I really am going to fight it though b/c I see no reason why either one of us should have to take time out to do this. I haven't heard of anyone else having to do it! Anyway, we're going to try three cycles with injectables before moving on... I'm really praying one of them will work!

Thanks Lauren. I'm pretty mad about the whole thing. I'm going to try one more natural IUI this cycle... I really don't have much hope for it, but I can't do nothing. KWIM? So, i'm going to talk to the dr when I go in for my IUI to see if I can get out of the class. The receptionist told me that it was mandatory, but I think my dr can be swayed. If not, I'm going to try to just send DH. Lame.

How are you doing?

Thanks Terri! I am pretty bummed about the whole class thing. I'm going to try another natural IUI this month-- mostly just because I know it will at least be a little more useful than trying on our own which is pointless. But, I'm really not holding on to a shred of hope. I just don't want the what ifs. Anyway, when I go in for the IUI I'm going to try to talk the dr into not making me take the class. The receptionist said it was mandatory, but I seriously doubt that is the case. We'll start with the injectable IUIs next month. He's only suggesting to try three before moving on, so I'm praying one of them works.

How are you doing?

Thanks Cynthia. I am going to try to get out of the class, but if I can't I'm hoping DH will be able to go alone... Just have to talk him into going with all the women. =)

Thanks Grace. It's definitely been a tough few days!

How are you doing? Getting excited for the upcoming IVF?

Grace,
I'm so excited for your IVF. I have a great feeling that this will be the one! FX that everything goes perfectly!

I hope I can cut class, too! =) But, if not, then I'm hoping DH can just go for me. Either way, I'm going w/ injectables in October. If I have to miss some work, I guess I will. I just can't miss these first few weeks.

Take Care!
