Praying for our BFP

edited November -1 in Our Train of Hope
We decided to start TTC the being of 2011 getting intune with my cycle the first 2 months, we made our first attempt in March, 01, 2011 with 1 iui vial. To be begginers we thought we did ok. But had major leakage. Of course our 1st TTC cycle was a BFN and we were totally crushed. I was hoping to be one of those women you had some first time luck and recieve a BFP, but unfortunately I wasn't. We toke April off to prepared for May 23, 2011 our second attempted (same donor) 1iui vial again we assume we did pretty good. Boy in our TWW we thought we nailed it with all the symptoms I was showing. Then AF came and rained on our parade. We came to the conclusion that maybe this donor was just not for us. So we toke June off to debate and choose our second choice donor. Ready for July with a new donor 2 ICI vials, before our vials arrived we got a super early +opk and decided we would try for August. Out third attempt August 05, 2011 , were so ready for our BFP, and to become mommies. I just know it will happen for us, I will remain positive and patient.

~praying to be a mom~

    Well AF came and rained on my parade for our third TTC cycle. As plan we agreed to try 3 home inseminations and if failed we would move on to RE assisted IUI. Our first appointment is Sept.23rd . In kinda sad because we have to sit out and wait on TTC ...... I hoping whatever tests are ran come back fine so we can go on with the show !!

    I think it's great that you gave your self a set number of tries and then moved on to getting help. DP and I did the same thing and when after our second try at home, unmedicated, we still got a BFN, she spoke to her OBGYN who did some bloodwork and found out DP was not ovulating on her own, so think of all the money we would have wasted on sperm if we had kept on going, not knowing she wasn't ovulating on her own. We had to sit out for 3 months to get the right dose of clomid to make her ovulate. We then did 3 at home cycles using the clomid and got BFNs each time. OBGYN decided we should go in to see an RE, our second attempt with the RE resulted in our BFP. Although DP did have a miscarriage early we plan on trying again next month hopefully. But anyhow, I just wanted to say I know it is hard having to sit out a few cycles, but in the long run it is worth it to know that everything is working and that you have a pro there to help you when you need it!!

    Good luck, here's to a quick BFP after your RE visit!!!

    Awesome news for us today !!! 1st RE appoinment got bumped to tomorrow !!! I talked to the receptionist to get some things cleared up that I wasnt understanding and some insurance stuff. Apparently she assumed i was in a heterosexual realtionship, she asked how long have me and my husband have been trying.. haha. So I corrected her and explained our journey(same sex relationship and TTC) she then seem to be more sympathetic and understanding of my cry for help. She bumped my appointment to tomorrow asked me to be there at 2pm to dicuss my options on what can be done.

    Yes DP will be taking clomid again, cd 3-7. Just waiting on AF to show, of course the month we want to start trying again AF decides she wants to take her sweet time arriving, the dang witch!!! We will be doing the trigger shot again also, and will have cd 12 u/s done to check size of follies, that is usually the night we trigger too, then in to the RE 35 hrs later for IUI. If the witch doesn't show in the next day or 2 we may be doing ours the same day you gals do yours!!!! Got my fingers x for all of us!!!!

    Well here we are again facing another BFN cycle. Will we ever get our BFP and a baby. Once again we so thought we had this cycle and we would finally get what we been wishing and praying for. I don't how much more DP and I can take of this. We'v actually been TTC much longer than you know, which was before we join the boards using a know donor for 6 months with no success, which brought us to here. Our TTC journey has to be postpone and hopefully we will get to start back up at the beginning of the year.

    Giving an overdue update since the forum has been down. January was our 5th attempt 3rd donor overall but first time trying this donor. IUI was done on January 16th, 21.5 hrs after the +opk. Got my BFP at 9dpo on FRER and PREGNANT on digital at 11dpo. I thought this was so out of our grasp in happening. We just can't believe our little bean is growing inside my tummy !! :)
