Sangria - I had the immuno testing, I think, as part of the miscarriage panel that I had after my chemical last cycle. They wait to it because it's an expensive test (but luckily, my insurance, which covers NOTHING else, covered this), and I think these problems are pretty rare.
Kala - I am so excited for you... I had been reading along and hoping that after all the travel, you would get your BFP this time, and it looks like that's happening!
Lisa - That is incredible that they are making your DH jump through such hoops. And I hope his family situation calms down!
Bei - I think the success of IUI depends on what the problem is. We did 3 IUIs on a natural cycle, since I seem to ovulate normally. Then we found out our problem is DH's morphology (0% normal), we could have done a million IUIs and never had a success. Overall, IVF is more successful, and of course, much more expensive. I think your doctor would be able to give you decent advice about if it was worth it to try IUI.
Karling - I thought your beta was for a 14dpo (9dp5dt), in which case it seemed REALLY high. For 17 dpo, maybe not so drastic, but it still seems high to me!
All you POASers are making me want to take a HPT and I haven't even had my tranfer yet!
For those who have done FETs, any problems with the estrogen? For the first few days, I felt really great, and now I'm getting super cranky. Lucky for DH, he's gone this week and missing out on my emotional roller coaster. I have bw/us on Friday and then we'll be all set to go next Friday! I keep telling myself that a month from now, I'll know how it all turned out, but I'm just so anxious.
Me 37 DH 41 (male factor, morphology)
3 failed IUIs
IVF #1 - 5/09 BFN
IVF #2 - 7/09 chemical
FET 10/09 chemical
IVF #3 - 1/10 chemical
