My first round of Clomid was April 18, 2009 and we paired it with natural intercourse & trigger shot.
Second Roud of Clomid was June 13, 2009 and we did our first IUI with Trigger shot
Third Round of Clomid was July 11, 2009 and we did 2nd IUI with frozen sperm (DH was outta town, fishing in Alaska) and Trigger shot.
Fourth Round of Clomid was September 7, 2009 and we did 3rd IUI and Trigger Shot.
The reason we did not have consectative months of Clomid is because most of the time I had cysts and could not take it.

Jan. 8th: u/s scheduled, exacty 5 weeks, My Dr. didn't see anything but he said his machine is older and sent me for a specialist high tech imaging place. Beta Checked: 1965.
Jan. 11 u/s, 5wk 3day, the u/s showed a sac but it was empty (measured .5mm). Beta checked: 4120
Jan.25 u/s scheduled, 7wk 3day, sac was empty (measured 1.3mm) and showed little growth. Definetely looking like a blighted ovum. NowI sit and wait to see what the next step is going to be. Went for bloodwork,16,000.
Feb. 12, 2010: I am not updating like I should. I definetely officially miscarried on Feb. 11th. I had been crampy really bad since Saturday. Wed. morning it was so severe it woke me up at 4am. The blood was so bad and the cramping was 10times worse then I ever imagined. I was very thankful it happened in the comfort of my home. I passed the deflated sac it was about the size of a plum. The bleeding is still really bad and the pain has moved to my back. A heating pad has been my saving grace as well as some viciden
and loritab. I had blood work done today and it has dropped to 7000 so 10000 in one weeks time. I hope that it continues togo down and I getback tozero soon.
Feb 14, 2010: I was up all night with horrible cramping and pain. The bleeding had basically stopped and the pain was the worst. We ended up paging my Dr. at 3am he said he would be at the office in the morning and to come in, also said to watch my temp and if I got a fever to go to ER immedietly. I didnt get a fever so I took a ton of pain meds and went to his office the folloiwng morning. He did an u/s and my cervix was still closed, the sac was there and collapsing and he saw something in the sac. My uterus was full of bloodd and being that my cervix closed I was reaching a dangerous place for possible infection. He recommended doing the D&E as soon as possible. So we left his office and went to the OR I was emotional. I really wanted this to pass naturally but my body had different plans of course. I am now recovering at home. Taking some pain meds and antibotics. We will be on a 2 month break.
June 8, 2010. Diagnosed with DOR, Diminishing Ovarian Reserve. Levels are .21.
June 14, u/s showed 3cm Endometrionum on right side. No longer canidate for IVF and after this cycle no more treatments until surgery to remove.
2nd Round Injections, June 14, 2010. Did follistim cd 3-10, 100ui per day, trigger on cd11 and IUI on cd12. Sperm count 12.4million, I had 1 follicle on right (17mm) and 2 14mm on left side. Beta blood test on July 8th it was negative. Waited for AF, she never came and week later I called Dr. sent in for progesterone, estrodial and beta. Progesterone was super low less then 1, Estrodial high 441 and beta negative. Looked like I was in follicular stage, did u/s and confirmed 30mm follicle on right, thinking trigger did not take and I never ovulated back in June? Bd like crazy. Calling the Dr. Monday for status update.
Oct. 10, 2010 AF finally came on her own! No meds which I am happy about!

Love the miracle stories...I have not been on here in a long time since maybe November??? I need to update. We had a life changing chain of events happen in our lives on October 14, 2011, 2 months after our miscarriage. We were not "looking" to adopt or even in the process of, but it seems that is what God's Plan was for us. All the right people in the right places and we were working with a woman that wanted to place her unborn baby boy up for adoption. I was so confused and over joyed and confused-lol. We took it one day at a time, he was due January 7, 2012 but again life took us by surprised and he was here via emergency c-section on November 18, 2011 7 weeks early, 5lbs 1.4oz of baby boy bliss!! We were with him the entire time as he spent 15 days in the NICU, now he is 3 mos and my guess 11-12lbs and so stinkin cute- I never thought I could be so in LOVE!! We are amazed at this path our lives have took and feel completely blessed.
