Update: I have a 16mm follie on the right and a 13mm on the left. They are supposed to call me this afternoon after they get the bloodwork back. He said he will see me in 1-2 days with trigger that night and IUI Fri or Sat. I am hoping for Sat so that the little follie has a chance to catch up. I am so bloated right now, I feel like I am already about 8 wks pg! Hopefully that's a good sign!
Ok, I heard back from the RE's office. I have to do two more Follistim injections -- boo, I thought I was done! (I only did 8 days of injections last time and this will make 10.) But I do think the extra two days will help grow these two follies so hopefully they are both ready for trigger on Thurs. I will go back for another u/s and I think b/w on Thursday morning.
What do you all think -- I had some EWCM tonight! I think we will DTD tomorrow, save up for a day, do IUI Saturday, and DTD afterward. Just in case!! Does the EWCM mean I am ovulating already? I am a TTC moron because we have never really TTC like normal people do, so any insight is appreciated!
I usually get EWCM for three to five days before my ovulation.... But I am sure it varies with everyone. It is definitely a good sign though! Good luck your plan sounds good!
So I tested yesterday and got a BFN, so sad, I know it could be early still but I felt saddened by it cause I would think it would be positive by now. But no signs go AF....so I guess I will re test on Friday if no AF. I just so want this to work, I don't want to have to escalate to injectables, this is turning out to be even harder this time. I am feeling extra emotional but that could be premenstral too. UGH!! I wish that this could be easy for all of us!
Ok....mini rant/vent over....I am now composing myself to move forward. Thanks.
Gwenn_ Good Luck! Oh I can't wait until tomorrow.
Yellow_ so sorry for the BFN and hoping its just early yet. I understand the emotions.
Katie_ I'm thinking of you and hope all goes well.
Anyone else I missed sorry, I have been away for awhile and a little behind. Hope to get caught up in the next few days.
Yellow -- You are still a little early right? No AF is the most important symptom so I hope she stays away for another 9 months!! Thinking of you!
Gwenn -- Good luck tomorrow, KUP!! What CD are you?
AFM -- Had my appt today, the follie on the right looks great but he didn't see anything worthwhile on the left. He could tell I was disappointed so he told me a story about another patient he has with a similar history to mine who had final u/s results just like mine and got pg with twins. I would settle for one, lol, but twins would be ok too! I wish I had one more follie so I had another chance, but everything else about this cycle has been going well so I guess I can't complain. My RE likes to have 1-2 good follies and he does a really good job keeping patients from having higher order multiples so I know he knows what he is doing. IUI will be Saturday morning.
The other thing I'm not sure about is the progesterone supplementation -- he told me to do the suppositories (100mg) 1x/day. Last cycle that worked, I did them 2x/day. He said I don't need to do them 2x/day because I will also be doing the HCG boost, but I am afraid to change anything away from the way we did it last time when it was successful. What do you think? Also a box of 21 suppositories is $86 so it will be much more expensive if I do it 2x/day... but if that's what my body needs I am ok with that. IDK what to do!! I'm supposed to start them Monday so I have a few days to figure it out.
Thanks for listening to my long story today!
Sounds like you had a good appointment, although I understand being disappointed in your situation. Good luck Sat!
I'll be CD 13 tomorrow. I usually O late, too, so I don't expect to be ready yet, but Monday was just too long to leave it without monitoring.
So with me-my cycle is at i think 75 days. Do you think I should call my doc and see if they can give me some provera so I can get it started? This is the longest it has been in a LOOOONG time!
75 days is really long. I think you should call.
I had my cycle monitoring appointment today - details here.
Gwenn: sounds like great follies....FX for you.
Katie: good luck tomorrow! I am not sure what I would do with the progesterone but going with your gut sounds smart!
Sara: 75 days?!? Wow...I would probably call, hope you get AF soon.
Auntmommy: thanks for the understanding. What's going on with you?
So no AF for me yet. No cramping or anything either. Just some achyness in the ovary area. Tomorrow will be 15 dpiui si if no AF in the AM I will test again. The RE told me the progesterone isn't enough to keep AF from coming and eluded that it shouldn't delay her either, but I still wonder whether that is what is going on. Time will tell I suppose. I will be sad if I am not but will move forward to injects cause a girl has to do what she has to do! I will keep you posted....
Yellow -- I hope the injects do the trick for you! Sorry about the BFN. I agree about not wanting to waste those precious expensive progesterone supps!!
Sara -- I hope they call in the provera for you so you don't have to wait much longer to start your next cycle! It's been long enough for you as it is!!
Yes I am curious too. What does pineapple core help with?
