RE Update

Just got back from my follie check. I have a 19mm and a 14mm on the left and a 16mm on the right (all rough estimates since he never tells me the exact number, I just watch the screen as he measures). The doc actually wants me to go ahead and trigger tonight rather than do one more day of Follistim and then trigger. Not exactly like last time, but hey, thats OK right? Actually, I think it's because he really tries to avoid doing a Saturday IUI at all costs and he knows Monday would be too late, but thats just me. However, I am going to remain positive about him and this cycle, so I will trust him and trigger tonight. The way I figure it, if they grow 1mm per day (including the rest of today since my appt. was so early) they will be 22(will release), 17 (probably won't release) and 19mm (most likely will release too). So, we are looking at 1 or 2 contenders....I'm good with that. I mean hello, thats all we had in Sept. and it worked and in Jan we had 3 (possibly 4) and nada...so it really is quality, not quantity.

I have a secret to reveal here....I actually bumped up my Follistim last night by a notch (roughly 10IU's) so I'm not *too* worried about the lack of meds tonight. Plus Dr. JA (hmm, maybe I should use a new abbreviation since I am in fact going back to him) always says the trigger usually adds a mm or two right before O, and I don't O until at least 36 hours post trigger.

IUI is set for 8:30 on Friday morning. So, we are going to BD again tonight around 8ish (to keep up with our EOD pattern) and that will give us about 36 hours of abstaining, which should be fine since DH has run a consistent 60mil/mL.

So, thats it.....testing begins around St. Patrick's Day, give or take a day, and AF(should she arrive) will show up around the 21st or 22nd. Also, that gives us one more shot for a 2008 baby if this is a bust.

All in all....I'm good right now, and I am going to try and stay that way =)

good luck! It sounds like everything is right on track! We are probably going to be quasi-cycle buddies this time around...
