My last IUI resulted in a chemical pregnancy, I had a little implantation bleeding (then my daughter got really sick and started feeding through the night for 3 nights) - and the acupuncturist was out of town for 10 days - and my geographic tongue got worse and worse by day. (It was perfect at the IUI). Then I was down to one line - BFN
My next IUI should be in a matter of days, my tongue has only just now returned to how a good tongue should look (after the last cycle bringing me down). The acupuncturist says skip this cycle and give my tongue and body a whole month of feeling well. The thing is I turn 43 this month and I know I don't have many time on my side - and next month there may be some other problem - flu - cold etc!
This next IUI will be my last natural one as I will start running out of Sages' donor. If this does not work I plan for two medicated and then one IVF (at a famous and extremely expensive out of town clinic) and then a donor egg cycle.
I worry that if the reason the last IUI didn't work was due to egg quality then I shouldn't be missing yet another cycle - this month's could be a good egg? If the reason was that I was breast feeding too much or something to do with my tongue- and then this can easily be fixed - the acupuncturist is not going put of town - but waiting another month might be better.
To make matters even more complicated the acupuncturist says if I have an auspicious dream then I should go ahead this month! What is that? (I suppose no dreams of the baby being a mass murderer for starters!) And no matter what I decide she will support me. The problem is - I don't know what to do, if I could get pregnant now I could go to a very awesome job interview out of town next month (this sort of job only comes along once in a blue moon, and I stand a very good chance of being seriously considered for it - having said that it isn't in the greatest city). But I won't be able to go through the interview process (out of town) if I am planting the seed next month.
The cycle after that would put me giving birth at Christmas day. I did this with Sage and finding any help from caregivers over the christmas and new year period is near impossible. I would almost miss that following cycle (March) just not to repeat the experience which nearly had me committed to an asylum after Sage was born.
Please tell me what you think I should do! Plant the magic seed this month or wait one more cycle? (The palm reader assured me I will be heavily pregnant or already given birth by november of this year) Stupidly I believe her - but if only she had told me which month to plant the seed!
