I was so busy having a couple of wonderful breakthroughs, I almost forgot I wanted to do an update about the cycle I am in now. Medicated IUI #6.
Monday was the start with my CD3 U/S and bloodwork. Everything looked good so I started the follistim. This time they started me on 150UI instead of 75. My last 2 cycles they started me on 75 for 4 or 5 days and then increased to 125 or 150. Apparently it was the best thing because I am responding great!
I went in yesterday for CD6 check and everything seems to be going well. They said I had a bunch of growing follicles and my estrogen was rising perfectly. The Dr even commented that I have a perfect/textbook uterus. That made me giggle because I was told that 2 years ago by my OBGYN. I guess it's true. The only problem was of course my ovaries were hiding again. They always do so ol' wandy gets shoved up there so far and moved around so much I'm surprised they couldn't see my heart on the U/S machine! The Dr even wrote down in detail where she found each ovary so hopefully the next U/S is a little easier.
Well, I went back today and they must have moved again, because even with the detailed directions from yesterday they were hard to find. Do they make an ovary GPS? Maybe they should be captured, tagged with a tracker and then released back into the wilds of my pelvis? (been watching too many wild animal shows) With all the searching yesterday and today they really irritated my insides. I think the spotting is finally stopping.
Anyway, today I was told my estrogen is still rising perfectly. My lining is at 8mm and I have 2 - 13mm, 1 - 12mm, 2 or 3 - 11mm and a bunch of little ones. I continue with 150UI tonight and tomorrow and go back Sunday morning for another check. Come on follies grow!!!!!
On that note I need to go wrangle the Hubby off the computer so he can give me my shot. I like when he does it.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
