IUI Update

RE appt. for monitoring on Friday was a bit disappointing. I only had one large follicle...and one smaller one. I was told to shoot up one more ampule of menopur and come back on Saturday for more monitoring.

Well, today (Saturday) is of course Ohio State / Michigan game day. Matt ended up dropping me off at the doctor's office for my bloodwork appt. at 7:30am and my u/s appt. at 8am. He left from there to go to the Ohio State alumni bar...he needed to secure parking and then a seat for us for the game. The bar was opening at 8am. Well, while he was doing that, my appointment went just fine. I now have two good follicles for my IUI. After my appointment I had to call a cab company to come get me and then drop me off at the bar. Nurse called and left a message. Apparently my estrogen is high, so they are having me do my IM trigger shot tonight. My IUI will then take place on Monday morning (36 hours after the shot). Well, after all of that....BUCKEYES WIN!!! So, all in all, a very good day. Oh, the things we go through in an effort to start a family AND for the love of football!

Yeah yeah your precious buckeyes won the game. Whatever! LOL I am so happy that your appointment went well and that you will be able to do the IUI on Monday! That is really great! You are almost in the lovely 2WW again! Did you buy your sticks? :)

That's right, Tanya...Go Bucks!! No need to buy sticks this time. Someone who no longer needed theirs donated a bunch to me. I think I have at least 3 or 4 tests. That should get me by...
