Hello girls,
I was supposed to be having my first attempt at IUI this Thursday but when I went for my final scan today my follicles were only 12-14mm and the consultant wanted them to be at least 18mm so she said it wasn't worth going ahead with the insemination on Thursday. :(

As it was our first go, it was trial and error with the level of drugs but lucklily this doesn't count as a proper go. :) and we still have 3 attempts with super-ovulation IUI.

I have to have a further injection tomorrow and go back for a scan on Friday - that way they will know for next time how much drugs we need.

Good news is that I have 3 eggs ready to pop so she said lots of babydancing this weekend once I have given the injection to make me ovulate ;) - one of DH's little swimmers surely has a chance of reaching one of 3 eggs ;D

I feel fine about it really and am going to make the most of this weekend!! Hopefully we will go ahead next month but I suppose it may be late Dec / Jan now.

Hi Lucylee

Sorry to hear about your postponed cycle - it's a killer eh? I had my last one postponed cos I had too many follies and they thought there was too high a risk of a multiple pregnancy! Thankfully, as you say, these abandoned cycles don't count! I am on my third cycle, second insemination and am now on the 2ww. Due to test on 27th of this month!

Love and good luck to all you ladies in the same boat!!!

Take care.

I also had my IUI postponed this month. (dec)

I was on my second attempt of IUI, first attempt went ok. My follies just scrapped through for size and not many. This time they upped the dose, so my body was very slow working then suddenly my follies incresed and I had too many!! :eek: So the insemination was cancelled :( Have to wait now till Feb to start again. 2 days before xmas my follies were hurting thought I maybe overstimulated, so went to bed and rested hoping the pain would go away :-\ Luckily for me it did.
One consellation was that I could drink over xmas :D

Hope all is well with you, and everything works out soon.

Rachel (Coops) :)

Hi Rachel,

Welcome to FF!

Sorry to hear your IUI was abandoned. That happened to me too back in May. I was devastated but like Chick says time does heal and you will move on to your next go.

Wishing you much luck.
