: Waiting to be ready :
Lissame-TTC#1, IUI #2
Needle in the Hay
Poet- Wow, can't they just trigger to catch that dominant follicle? then you could have at least 1 18mm to work with. I have read that if they are too big (26mm) they will be too old. Have you heard that too? And whats up with the cyst? How exactly can they tell by U/S thats its a cyst vs. follie? I had a something growing outside my ovary today...doc wan't certian what it was. What was your daily Folsitim dose? What it that was decreased? UGGGG...why is nothing ever easy????
AFM- Got my estrodial results, 846, so my doc says there looks to be 3-4 ready follies. My doc has been doing infertility for a million years and he said he has only 2 selective reductions, 2 sets of triplets, and a boat load of twins. I can handle twins, so we are going for it. Lets see my superman sperm work!
Poet- Even tho you are responding super early-your follies may be mature, as your estrodial is always higher. However, if you went to IVF, are you at risk of overstimulation/OHSS? Just wondering cuz my doc says he worries if the estrodial goes over 2000. I bet the IVF ladies knows this better than I. Glad you are triggering tomorrow so you can catch your big follie and some of the smaller ones too. How do you feel about multiples? Oh yeah, we will be cycle buddies too!!!
VictorianPatch- Welcome and hope your short here is short!!
AFM- Going over to my friends in one hour for the trigger. IUI Wed morning. My doc says he will be there to do it so no evil @#$% assults me with a tenaculum!! Thanks for everyones support and feeling that this is my cycle. I kind of feel it too, which could make the disappointment that much bitter. One day at a time....
I noticed since HCG trigger last night my ovaries are almost unbearably sore and my belly blew up like a balloon, (I don't carry extra weight, so its really noticable) I think I'll tell my doc at my IUI tomorrow.
I just wanted to jump in and say I'm joining you at the last minute for a January IUI as my IVF was just converted to IUI due to poor response. I was devastated on Monday at my first scan (only 3 follies) but now I figure - whatever will be will be.
BUT - I've got 3 good follies for IUI! 14, 16 & 17 mm today. Day 8 of cycle. I was on the full regimen of IVF meds since 12/31 after a month of suppression.
I trigger tomorrow AM and IUI on Friday.
Question - do you take the lupron when you trigger, or no Lupron day of trigger?
Another question- they say I don't have to do PIO shots after IUI even though I've been on Lupron because with IUI you still have your corpus luteum to make progesterone. Does this sound right? Has anyone done PIO after injectible/Lupron IUI?
