Down to Two…

I went in for monitoring this morning, and my three lead follicles that I had on Monday are now down to two. The nurse couldn’t even find one decent size follicle on my left ovary today, when on Monday there was one beautiful 10 mm folly! So I now have two follies on my right ovary – one at 13 and one at 14 mm. They’re growing away! I keep telling myself that this is good, that two follicles means two chances, and all I need is one. But my previous two IUI’s had three follicles each, and I only got pregnant with one baby each. No, two follicles equals two chances – this is good!!! (Definitely trying to work on my attitude…) The lining looks good at over 9 mm, so that’s good.

My bloodwork looks good: Estradiol at 392, LH at 3.13, Progesterone at 1.25. I’m supposed to continue with 75 of Gonal-F, start doing the Ganirelix tonight, and also start doing the Lovenox tonight. Oh boy, 3 shots each day! Definitely not looking forward to that…

The great news is I seem to be progressing such that I would trigger Friday night and have the two IUI’s on Saturday and Sunday, which would be wonderful as I wouldn’t have to miss work and make up some excuse as to why I have to miss two mornings in a row! AND – if I have an IUI on Saturday, then one of the IUIs can be with fresh sperm, as the hubs flies out on Saturday. We can only hope.

  10. You're right, all you need is one. Maybe the past IUIs didn't work out because it needed to be this egg from this cycle. And just because the past two didn't work out, it doesn't mean this one won't. There is always hope.

    I've got my fingers crossed and you are in my prayers.
