In search of a baby ug

I'm 38 and my caveman 45. We have been together for 8 years and in search of a baby ug for 6+ years. We had no idea when we began to this journey for our baby ug that the road that we would venture down would be so difficult. We are cursed with unexplained secondary infertility. After 6 early miscarriages-- and two ectopics complete with tube removal and 2 failed IUI's, we are starting IVF #1.

A Question for the Internet

Thanks to all of you who stopped by and left your thoughts. I am ok. Still here. Still frustrated. The getting pregnant part is what I can do. The staying pregnant is my problem. So why isn't this working??? I have an appt with Dr. G tomorrow. We are going to discuss moving on to IVF. So for those of who have done IVF I have a question for you.

What questions should I ask? I know we will have to get special approval from our ins. They require 3 failed IUI's before you can move on to IVF. My insurance is kick ass and covers it all so other than cost what else do I need to know? My company is based in Boston so I have full coverage on all procedures. I am so lucky to have that otherwise there would be no options. I also know the retrieval is like the procedure Dr. G did to aspirate the cyst. Thanks to Amy I know about the joys of the IM injections. I just don't want to miss anything or forget anything that might be important.

Thanks, you ladies Rock!

POAS Updated

So I couldn't take it anymore and this morning I POAS.


I already feel the signs of AF on her way. Cramps, headache, bitchy.

Beta is Tuesday however, I am sure AF will come first.

This sucks.

UPDATED***Mr. Ug sent this to me today and I laughed so hard I cried and almost peed myself.

That dreaded time again

The IUI was done on Tuesday. Went much better this time than last. Last time my cervix wouldn't cooperate and they kept stabbing at it trying to get in. OUCH! Also, I haven't had the I am going to die any moment cramping like with the last one either. Maybe this is a good sign?

Anyway so it is done and now we begin the dreaded 2WW. The lucky day is the 20th. It is my brothers' birthday so maybe that is a good sign? My office orchid also had 3 buds and 2 are ready to pop any day....another good sign? The fact the iui was done on 6/6/06 a bad sign? I know, i know, i am a crazy girl.

So any suggestions on how to make it through? I am probably THE most impatient person. Mr. Ug always says "you never like to wait"....and this is true. Me? I like that instant gratification stuff. Waiting two whole weeks seems like 2 years.

The latest

So yesterday I took a cab to see Dr. G. It turns out the cabbie and his wife are also patients of Dr. G. Funny how in a few short minutes total strangers are relating our infertility woes and sharing both our pain and hope for the future. So I'm Keeping the 2 vials of Bravelle each evening and Back to Dr. G on Saturday. He also assured meS that I did not say anything compromising during our chat last weekend :)

Last nites injection hurt like hell....not sure if it was the wrong spot or the way I pinched the skin or what however, it was not pleasant at all. :-(

That's all for now
