A note to self (to be read in 14 days)

Note to self:

In 14 days, when you wake up bright and early to POAS from your first IUI cycle, just remember, TTC is a journey. The journey has ups and downs and at time it feels like you are moving backwards instead of making progress. But don't lose site of the dream, the purpose of all of it. The IUI statistics are not in your favor for only one IUI cycle, it can take time. Don't be surprised or discouraged when you don't see the two pink lines. This is a process, don't give up. Time will tell, and I need you to stick with this for the long haul.

Don't give up.

  1. Here from LFCA to say that you're beyond wise to write this now. While single IUI stats aren't wonderful, in the longer term, IUI works out for many of us. It took me 10 total IUIs (with 7 BFNs, 2 BFJustEffingWithYous (an early loss and a chemical pregnancy), and 1 BFP), but in retrospect, I'm glad that I stuck with it.

    I wish you a lot of luck, and hope that you're encouraged by your strong response to Clomid. I'll be cheering for you from the sidelines.
