Pregnant the first time on a Natural IUI

I'm still in shock that we got pregnant on the first try with a natural IUI, I'm constantly hoping nothing goes wrong as this is our first time and first pregnancy. This is all so overwhelming!

7-17 HCG 15
7-20 HCG 82

Hopefully our little peanut if growing and healthy, will update when I get more numbers.

Just know it totally can and will happen on the first try! We used the smiley face ovulation tests and went in the day after a solid smiley, we had a 10 mil sperm count with donor 4940. If anyone has questions or thoughts I did journal my symptoms and such as I obsessed every day of the TWW.

EEEEK Let's hope this baby is OK!

    Wow congratulations!! We just started our TWW and do believe it can happen on the first try, although it is so uncommon. Very cool - can't wait for the next update. When is your next blood test?

    congrats!! me and my boyfriend are in the process of exploring our options. im leaning a little more towards at home insemination just trying to find people who have actually done it.
  • chaffinslchaffinsl Member Member
    Thanks! I get more blood work on Monday 7/27.

    I have 2 friends who got preggo with at home insemination on the first try- it just has to be timed right. We chose to go to the doc for insemination because the sperm is so costly we didn't want to waste any if it didn't work at home lol.

    how many day post iii did you wait before the pregnancy test?
  • JJZFamilyJJZFamily Member Member
    chaffinsl - anxious to hear your results from today - were they ordered STAT or do we all have to wait a few days with you? ;)
  • chaffinslchaffinsl Member Member
    Okay ladies. Numbers time!

    7/17 HCG 15
    7/20 HCG 82
    7/27 HCG 2700

    No wonder I'm feeling like poop this baby is producing hormones like a maniac! I'm not complaining though, doc was happy- first ultrasound is Aug 7 @315 Est.

    My boobs are huge and killing me. Hubs has been warned not to touch.

    How is everyone else doing??

    @brander- I had a faint positive on 9dpiui and a clear positive on 10dpiui.

    Wow congrats. You have given me some hope that this can work on the first try. I just had my first iui on 8/6 and I go for blood work on 8/13. I have totally been thinking about if it worked every single day. But I think maybe I will try to relax a little more until I find out for sure. Thanks for the sharing and providing updates and good luck.

    "My partner and I will be trying in about 2 weeks for the first time doing a IUI with donor 4462, we fell in love with this donor! Congratulations on your pregnancy, hope you and baby are doing great! Did you do anything before your IUI that you think may have helped in being successful on the first try? "
