    Re: Just did my first iui

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks Holly I can now add faces.

    I'm feeling good today. My bbs are a little sore but I'm not sure if its due to the hormones or other things. So I'm trying not to look at that as a sign. It's hard because everyday I'm look for something.

    I'll keep everyone posted. Everyone have a good day and keep smiling its contagious.


    Hope I didn't overdue it with the faces I'm just so excited that I can add them. Its allows me to write with more expression.

    Re: Just did my first iui

    Yes, have 2ww. This coming Monday, July 2, 2007 I have an appointment for blood work and an ultra sound. I asked the nurse if it was an internal ultra sound. She said that it would be for right now. She said they were going to check to see if I needed an extra shot of progesterone to support a pregnancy. I'm still a little uneasy about that. I thought it would be bad just in case I did get pregnant to do an internal ultra sound. When we go in on Monday my dh and I will ask further questions.

    My dogs must be in dog heaven. To pass the time I've been taking them to the dog park. Especially since we just moved into an apartment and no longer have a yard. I picked up a book to read over the week. Sad to say I spent about an hour in the Sams club when all I had to pick up was 4 things if any. One of my friends is getting married back in New York, and she asked me to help her find a reception hall that would fit her budget. I excited to surf the internet and make phone calls to help her. I enjoy doing things like that so hopefully it will make the time fly. I'm glad I could help her especially since I can't be there in person.

    Re: Just did my first iui

    Hi hi Chase!!

    I'm so very glad that you have something busy, and not too strenous, to pass the time. I'm sorry that you cannot be with your friend for her wedding, but it's really good that you help still!!

    July 2!! I will be praying for you very hard that day, cherie! But is it safe to do internal ultra sound? forgive the question, but I have never heard of one since I came here. Oh I see, you are confused too. When you find out, please tell us, okay? Or perhaps one of our IF sisters will enlighten us, eh?

    Very good, reading!! It has been nice weather to read outside! I'm so praying for you, my dear. Let us know how everything progresses, yes?

    ****BABY DUST****

    Re: Just did my first iui

    Hey Princess

    The waiting is driving me crazy. Do you believe I was actually considering taking my last pregnancy test when I know there is no way in the world it will tell me this early. I have to wait until (july 9). I'm a little confused about the transvaginal ultrasound. I tried to research it but the only thing I found out was that its used to check the uterus, abnormalities, and ectopic pregnancies. the article said that it was usually done starting 4 1/2 weeks prenant. I'm so confused.

    I called the nurse to ask it it was an internal ultrasound. She said yes and that the rest would be internal too. she asked if I was getting hyer already because I called to ask a question 1 day after IUI. She said it in good nature. I really want to call back and get a better understanding as to why. I thought about waiting until Monday morning and asking her before she does it. Should I go ahead and call or just wait until Monday. Any advise.

    Re: Just did my first iui

    Salut cherie!!

    My dear, I would advise you call right away. If you have a question, you should ask, becuase you don't want to have it festering, especially since it's weekend. You don't want to waste your weeknd with that on the back of your mind, true?

    I trust the article, but logically, it confuses my mind If there is baby in there, shouldn't it be left undisturbed? Ah well, they know better than I, I suppose. But you must ask, to be sure. It's your first IUI, correct? They must expect you will have many many questions.

    Hahaha, you are so cute, cherie! Wanting to take a test so early! And very understandable!!! Take it now if you so want, but don't be saddened if you see no pink/blue/second line/+ becuase you are right, it is too early.

    Keep us posted, I am thinking of you!

    Re: Just did my first iui

    Salut Mes Amie,



    Thanks for the advise. It was just on time. The office closes at 12pm on Friday and I just called at 11:30. My nurse wasn't in today so they transferred me to another nurse who covers. She explained that the ultra sound is to check the size of my ovaries. If my ovaries are not too big I would get a hcg booster to give me additional support. I welcome any additional support. She said it wouldn't tell if I'm pregnancy because it is way too early. I feel so much better, you were right I couldn't last the weekend. If I would have called earlier it would have saved me a lot of internet surfing for answers.

    Now I won't anticipate finding out if I'm pregnant on Monday since its just a shot.

    Merci,
    Au revoir (please forgive me if I spelled it wrong)

    Re: Just did my first iui

    Chase just wanted to let you know that it is safe to do transvaginal U/S while preggo. That is the only way they can see the baby at an early stage and they can't see them until around 4 1/2 to 5 weeks I think. I was 6 1/2 weeks along when I found out I was preggo with my son and they did a transvaginal u/s then and they did one at 7 1/2 weeks and another at 8 1/2 weeks. They won't hurt the baby because the baby is in your uterus and the u/s probe only goes in the va ja ja. Hope this makes you feel better. Good luck and hope you get a bfp on July 2nd.

    Kelly

    Re: Just did my first iui

    I went to the doctor today for my ultrasound and blood work. The ultrasound showed that I still had some follicles or cycst but nothing major. Since they weren't too big they were able to give me an hcg shot to support a preganancy. Later on the nurse called me back with my progesterone level she said it was 20+ I'm so excited. She said everything is going well. The only thing is that since I received a hcg shot I won't be able to test if I'm pregnant until July12. The hcg could give me false reading. She also told me not too look for any signs of pregnancy because the hcg shot causes bloating and tender bbs.
