First time IUI success ?

Good morning All !


I am a lesbian who has never tried to get pregnant before. My partner and I have been together for 6 years (married 1 year on November 10, 2011). We have a beautiful 7 year old little girl that we were blessed to have placed into our lives at 2 months of age but now we would like to add to our family. She doesn't seem to be nervous or worried but I am ! All of my blood test came out great (except that I tested positive for CMV which my OB/GYN said is common and I do not actively secret the virus). I had an HSG done June 24th (it hurt like hell ! felt like i was going to pass out) and that test came back great. So all in all, I am a normal, healthy woman trying to get pregnant without male assistance (in part ). So, we decided to go with the round of Clomid instead of doing a natural cycle because my doctor says I have a better chance at getting pregnant like that and we just picked a donor (OFFICIALLY) on yesterday but I'm feeling a bit discouraged because I've been reading all over the place that the success rate is only about 6-26%. I really want this to work on the first time although I'd try as many times as I needed to and do anything I needed to do to have this baby for us. I start taking my Clomid on cycle day 3 which is 11 days away, then let the games begin ! Is there anyone up here who's gotten pregnant with their first IUI ? I'd love that positive feedback right about now.

Re: First time IUI success ?

ABSOLUTELY!! I was desperately searching the internet for success stories on first round iui about a month ago. I was soooooo disheartened when I couldnt find many, but hubby said that it was probably because everyone who does get pregnant straight away on iui moves to a different topic. To cut a long story short, I had my first iui 3 weeks ago and am now pregnant. Be positive Adore, it can and does happen Best of luck Hun xxx

Re: First time IUI success ?

Our first IUI was a success also - we now have our 20 month old son - so yes it can and does happen! I swore I was not pregant, took home tests and they were negative, but the blood test was + so I was!

We are about to embark on our 2nd IUI attempt.

Good Luck!
