Update for JenH and others not on FB

I took a break from the last loss. I wanted to start back up in September is, but my body had other plans. I spotted for almost a month and when I finally made an appt and went in AF showed the day before. I figured we would get started but the doc wanted me to have a 'real' cycle first.

I'll post what I wrote in my discussion board so I don't miss anything b/c I would type those up right after my appts.

Wrote 11/25/10
Went to RE on Monday (CD4), he put me on 250mg of clomid days 4-8 and 150iu Follistim days 9-10 and back in Monday for u/s....

12/2
Nothing new to report....they couldn't really see my right side, but the left has 2 @ around 9mm, so keep on 150ui and go back monday. ( can't find this post, but they called me after the blood work and told me to come back in 2 days instead)

12/4
hello...just got my hcg shot iui tomorrow its weird bc they had trouble seeing on the u/s but e2 is up n lh is 34 so im surging...ohh n wooo i had ewcm a rarity for me

12/10
Went for my booster shot. Well it turns out my ovaries just felt like not cooperating when it mattered...no problem finding them today. I o'd from 4 on one side and 2 from the other (that I could see her actually measure). Timing is on my side b/c i was supposed to see the Dino doc today and my lovely doc just came in between IVFers, asked me if I had a lot of follies and grabbed my folder, made a face and said no booster, too many follies, so he Rx'd me crinone (finally) for 8 days.

12/17
12dpiui = BFN ...I really wasn't feeling it this month and only tested b/c i had to get a scan of my leg done.

12/19
AF

12/21
well.......i have cysts left over....he said we can check them next week or in two weeks i opted for two weeks so i can get drunk off my butt for NYE....this is the first time i ever had cysts left over....he said bc i dont cycle on my own if things look well in two weeks i can start then. And the best part...i am actually ok with everything

1/3/11
Went for follow up....no more left overs from last month....starting 250 clomid today then shots start on saturday and i go back on Monday.....get this...my BETA from CD 3 was 5.42....i didn't have the heart to ask if it was a chemical or possible left over from the HCG shot which I doubt..... (I started 250mg clomid again for 5 days and then 150 follistim )

1/10
I don't understand why this doc always wants to see me after just two days of injects....but of course there was nothing going on.....just little ones starting to develop ...which is ahead of last time...b/c i had nothing at all after 2 days. stayin'g on 150 and going back on thursday.

1/13
I had 12 and 13 on the right side....3 more days of shots....

1/16
I am so tired of my wacky body. So I went in on Thursday and they said come back Sunday. I had a 12 and 13 on the right. Friday morning, I had EWCM. Last night at 3AM my TMI nips were tingly and I just knew I was in the process of O'ing. I figured, I'd go in today and they would tell me I am ready to pop and tell me to take my HCG tonight. Nope, instead this tech (after doing trans vag and abdominal u/s) says I have 13/14 and something else. My nurse said there's three and I asked her how could the numbers be so low if they were 12/13 3 days ago....she said different techs different measurements. Doc said 2 more nights of follistim and then come back on Tuesday w/ my HCG. On the way to get the HCG I talked it over w/ DH and we decided no IUI b/c 1. our copays went up in the new year and 2. we just shelled out a butt load of cash on Friday to fix the car. We had success in June w/o the IUI so what the hay. So I waited to see if the doc would call me, b/c I just wasn't buying that my follies barely grew b/c my nips are tingly. And at 4pm he finally calls. E2 is 1816, P4 3.5 (so it's starting to rise) and HCG tonight at 8pm DTD next three days. I freaking knew it man. I just feel like I need to be monitored daily once afollie sprouts b/c I like go haywire or something. What also convinced me that I was ready is the last two cycles w/ follistim I need 8 days of shots and yesterday was the 8th day. Sad part, I only have about 6 days worth left. Oh and the doc said the follies were probably in the process of collapsing. So, wish me luck guys!!! lol

And that's where I am right now....eek!!! :)

Wow, I really appreciate that!

I only knew from your chart that you were cycling again and I have had all my fingers crossed for you!

I also had an ovary that would hide until the very last second. I was often told that side wasn't making anything but I knew better. You don't feel that much pressure if nothing is growing!!

Best of luck!!!
