so a technicality?
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 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.

its just an ob office,not a clinic or RE. i dont know why im so getting wrapped up in #'s. So there went IUI #9 i guess!

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!
