For anyone who is here for the first time, as a quick recap, we did our first IUI (unmedicated) in August 2010. After a nice vacation to visit our families in North America in September, we did our second IUI (with Clomid) in October 2010. I over-responded with 9 follicles, but thankfully 2 were well ahead of the rest, so we were able to salvage that cycle by triggering a little early. I got pregnant that cycle but at our 2nd ultrasound, the baby had no heartbeat and I was diagnosed with a missed miscarriage.
At the end of December, we did our 3rd IUI, also with Clomid, which failed. During January, February, and March, we did IUIs #4-6 with FSH injectables. All of those cycles failed as well. After a 2 month break I am now waiting to start Lupron late next week to begin our first IVF cycle and I have lots of hope that we are getting closer to our elusive take-home baby! You can find a more detailed version of our story here.
Also worth mentioning is that we live in Israel - as North American transplants, navigating the Israeli system is always a grand adventure (and occasional source of unprecedented levels of frustration), though we are very blessed and grateful to have full infertility coverage as part of the socialized healthcare system here.
