my 3 little piggies

I want to thank you all for your wonderful comments over the past couple of days. I really don't know what I would have done without you. Your comments really helped me. You gave me straight forward answers and calmed my nerves.They made me smile and some even made me laugh which was awesome! I will get to replying soon. I have to comment from my phone because reply is not working from any computer still so it's a little difficult. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Well the cycle is still on track. I have 3 beautiful follies on my left side. One 15mm and two 17mm! They were cute and just looked like chubby little things so I am calling them my 3 little piggies. I have a whole bunch of little follicles on my right, but they won't get anywhere. My lining is really good too.

I was told to take one more shot of 125UI follistim tonight and I will be going back tomorrow morning. As of this morning the plan is to trigger tomorrow night and do the IUI on Sunday morning. The past few IUIs we have done the IUI 24 hours after the trigger. We only did 36 hours with our first so I don't know what they plan on doing. We shall see tomorrow.

The Hubby and I have had many conversations about multiples. We understand the risks to Mom and baby and don't prefer it (if we did IVF we would only transfer one embryo), but if it happens we will welcome them. We also would not do selective reduction unless there is a major, major health issue. I just couldn't do it.*

When the Hubby came home I told him about the three follicles and asked him if he was still ok with possibly having twins or triplets. He did his little joking around that he does and then got serious and told me he is up for it if I am. He is just worried about possible complications and my health.

So we are gonna do it!


*I do not judge anyone who does selective reduction, I personally wouldn't be able to do it. Everyone should be able to choose what they want to do without any judgement.

  3. I'll keep my fingers crossed that at least one of those little piggies makes a nice and strong house to stick around in for the next 38 weeks. <3

  6. What a beautiful cycle this is shaping up to be! Your ovaries are total rock stars and I'm super proud of them :) My doctor offers back-to-back IUIs one at 24 hours and one at 36 hours. It was $550 for one or $700 for two so we always did the two. Might be worth asking about this time around.

    1. We have asked about that in the past, but with the Hubby's sperm they say its not worth it. I am going to trust their expertise.

  8. Sounds like all systems are go - good luck! FYI, I listened to a fascinating podcast about selective reduction recently by a doctor who performs it - check out http://www.blogtalkradio.com/creatingafamily/2010/01/27/fetal-reduction-to-reduce-risk-of-triplets-and-mor. No one ever wants to be in that position but it gave me a different perspective on people who are - and heck, it helps pass the time during the two week wait!

  10. I'm hoping that of three at least one follicle holds a good quality mature egg. Sorry if this sounds like I'm a pessimist but after IVF I've learned about how the follicle count doesn't always mean quality eggs. Good luck! I hope this cycle will give you a BFP!

    1. I understand that. That's why I'm glad we have more of a chance.
