  • Ok. So my 2nd AF since the d&c is due to arrive at any time now. DH and I haven't talked much about what we're going to do with this next cycle. I am so 50/50 on this. We did decide that meds would be used for our next IUI due to our history. I might see if we can do the trigger, but not clomid, since I seem to ovulate on my own (can you do that). I haven't brought anything up with DH and I was hoping he'd bring it up on his own. Maybe its just not something he knows how to bring up? Grrrr.

    I am SO on the line here. If AF is late, then I might wait to see if I get a little more regular. It took quite awhile for the first AF to arrive after the surgery. Everyone keeps telling me to listen to my heart, but my heart is going both ways! I really want to be pg for christmas! I am scared to have a failed IUI and scared to be pg again for fear of troubles. But I am anxious to start again because I don't want to wait forever! I guess I just don't know what to do and as soon as AF gets here, there's some decisions to be made (gee I love having to do the IUI thing!)

  • Well, honey, come sit next to me. We are in the same boat on these decisions. I hope to get to point where I can overwhelmingly say I am going for it, but I'm not there right now.


    I hope dh gets on board for you. I know my DH would never bring it up for fear of upsetting me.

  • I just think that our DH's don't think about it or if they do, they're afraid that we'll be offended/hurt/reminded to the point of tears so they avoid the subject like the plague!

    It's hard when your heart is in both places at once. I think that's a totally normal reaction. Maybe once AF arrives, the future will be less cloudy and you'll have a "parting of the seas" moment in which everything in the plan becomes clear!

    Okay, so if that doesn't miraculously happen, try the old standby--a pros/cons list and see how it all shakes out.

    Whatever you decide, keep us in the loop so we can support you!

  • still no af as of this morning, but the temp keeps dropping, so i expect it soon. as much as i want DH to bring it up, i think i'll just breach the question tonight. what am i afraid of? that he'll all of a sudden say, I don't want to try anymore...and I know that's not true! So anyways. here's to another day!

    tonight. It's definitely a hard conversation to have, I know. I hope it goes well and he's receptive to helping you figure out a plan.
