Losing hope...

edited November -1 in Trying to Conceive
So, I am 10dpo today and I have now been spotting for 3 days on and off. It hasn't really gotten any heavier over the past 3 days but it changes in color. Sometimes it is more brick red, others it is more corally/pink, once it looked kind of normal red. At first I was holding onto the hope that it was implantation bleeding...but since its going onto 3+ days I am beginning to think it is and was just AF showing her ugly face really really early. (sigh). I'm almost wondering, if this cycle doesn't work....if we should just skip AI try #3 and just go right into IUI instead. Either way, the next attempt won't be until August at least because I have my stepsons next month and I am not comfortable doing ICI with the boys in the house. I think they would be scarred if they walked in on me doing one lol. This is an old house and there aren't locks on the doors (landlord never put any in)

I think the long time I've been waiting to be a mommy is finally just starting to make me sad :(

    Now that we've had 3 failed at home cycles I am on the IUI bus for good. When this works (And it will...eventually and certainly not in my time) then I will try again only with IUI and meds. But that's still a very personal decision. Many people on here have gotten pg at home with donor sperm and it's definitely possible. But when you're paying for it suddenly it takes on a different meaning. LOL. I'm sorry about the spotting and hope it's not AF. Hope, hope, hope!

    I'm sorry if it is AF! But still hoping that it isn't! We never had the luxury of trying at home and sometimes I wish we would have but I will tell you that I have seen a lot of people get pregnant at home but I have also seen people try at home a bunch and then move to an RE and get pregnant on that first cycle. So I do think it is a personal choice. Whatever you choose I wish you the best of luck!

    3 times at home was our max, then we took a month off to do a consult with an RE and get necessary testing done, bw. GL!
