Waiting to miscarry after iui


I had my first <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">IUI</a> on October 3. This was my second cycle on meds (femara + ovidrel trigger then estrace and progesterone)

On my first cycle in September, I responded “too well” to the medication and had 6-8 mature follicles and we didn’t go through with the

<a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">IUI</a>.

So I was excited when that month quickly came and went and we could finally go through with it. The doctor lowered my femara to 2.5mg from 5mg.

The 2ww was hard as usual and when I was called with my first beta results it wasn’t great news. My hcg level was only at 23. I couldn’t go back in 48 hours because I was traveling but after 5 days went back and my levels rose to 588!

I finally took a test and received my first BFF!!!! Two days later though, my hcg had only rose to 882 which wasn’t bad but didn’t double and that made me nervous plus the doctors concern doesn’t help. The doctor wanted me to do just one more beta before scheduling an u/s to be sure it was still going up and it didn’t. Instead it dropped to 497. I was told to stop progesterone and estrace and await a miscarriage.

So now I wait... and cry.
