Thanks! we are crossing all fingers and toes!

The IUI itself was a breeze, the injectables were slightly annoying, mildly confusing for the first time user and really expensive(thank goodness my insurance covered it!). After all of the meds(second round clomid 150ml, gonal F and hcg trigger) I only had 1 follicle!!!

The boards here are filled with useful information!

Good luck with your search and thanks again!

Woohoo!!  Congrats to you!  I'm 45 and ttc#2 after 2 mc due to health issues a couple years ago.  Of course the RE said we have a chance in you know what since I'm over 40, but I'm hopeful.  Did they have you do a Clomid challenge test first to see what your FSH levels did?  They're asking us to do that and I'm nervous about it.

Thanks fairy!

1st IUI unmedicated BFN. 2nd IUI 100ml clomid, novarel trigger 2 follicles BFN. This cycle 150ml clomid and gonal F with 1 lonely follie. My FSH were fairly high on the last round of bloodwork, I don't recall the numbers but it was over 20. My RE didnt seem too worried about the high #s though.

Good luck! This journey is far from over, but it's nice to know I have some peeps on my side ;)
