  • im just mincing words here. but if you were in my boat...

    we had 8 iui's before we got pg and it ended ectopic.

    So we started trying again after waiting a while....

    For all intensive puposes (and medical records) do you call this IUI 9 or do we start over and say IUI 1 for this try?

    I guess its just a mental thing, but if a dr sees that i have had 12 iui's vs 2 iui's...i don't know....it just looks different that way.

    its like i want credit for the iui that actually worked!! i am so scared that someday its going to be "too many iui's" and the dr will just say "well you've maxed out"

    silly isn't it?

  • Well, we are ttc# 2. We are on our 4th try for our second child. I had a very early miscarriage in the summer. The clinic is counting each IUI in order, It took us 4 tries for our DD, and they call this month IUI#8, and they mark a '+' sign next to the ones where I got pregnant. Not sure if that's how you're clinic would do it, though.

  • I'm sorry things didn't work out this month, Erica. This roller coaster ride is very difficult.

  • Oh and another horribly depressing thing, apparently getting pg doesn't change your odds statistically for the better. My RE told me flat out that prior to cycle #8, we had about an 18% chance each cycle. Now, even with a + on our side, our odds go down to 10% per cycle just because were past 8 cycles. I know it's all statistical mumbo jumbo and statistics don't tranfer well, but it's still a bummer. I also want credit for getting a +. It's just not fair!
