Didn't have to go in this morning...yay! But, I do have to go tomorrow, and since I absolutely have to be at school by 7:30 for my 8AM orchestra rehearsal... well, I'm going to have to be on their doorstep right at 6 when they open. 35 minutes to drive there, plus a half hour to shower and get ready...that comes out to 4:55AM. I am SO not a morning person...big UGH! Hopefully it'll be worth it with some nice progress on the follies!
Yay for getting most of your preliminary work done! Time for AF to get a move on for that next step!
Wow, that is super early, yikes!!! I'm not a morning person either. When I go to the clinic, I'll take my shower the night before to save time and straighten my hair in the morning but then feel kinda icky. In your case, you gotta work. Me, I can be icky at home, well minus school drop off/pick ups. I also cannot eat first thing in the mornings either, thyroid medication, so I take something with me to the clinics.
Just think, it's all for a wonderful reason!
DH did his sperm thingy this morning, they'll test it and hopefully all is good. He also took them a photo of the kids so it can be passed onto our donor. I think it helps them to see the family they are helping. Some would feel weird about it but we're fine with it. Heck, not even picky about our donor at all.
It was definitely waaayyyy early....sad thing was, I was there just after 6 and was STILL there for an hour and a quarter. Only one Dr. on doing the u/s. I barely made it to school in time. Kind of a mixed bag of results, but I'll take it. Still just one follie at 11 on the right, but also one at 11 on the left this time. The other smaller ones were also apparently catching up (although since it was a dif Dr. doing the u/s this time, and all they record in the computer is how many are <10, I have no idea why she seemed to think they were catching up.) But, one on each side I'll take. Would really like 2 on the left where we know the tube is open, but I'll live with what I can get. More drugs tonight and back for more b/w and u/s on Friday. (Yawn!) Like you said...all for a good cause.
Hope DH's count and everything look good! Odd about the pic thing...I didn't know they did that. Are you having any requirements or a "wish list" at all so far as the donor (hair and eye color, etc) or just going with a little bit of luck?
When I did my IUI, the other eggs caught up, I was surprised! But I guess it all comes together and I can relate about the one tube issue and hoping the eggs are on the correct side. No requirements here for the donor, just fair skin with blue or brown eyes. DH said British or American and they do have British donors, heck, they have donors from all over, every race and such which is so cool. Honestly, we just what whoever available since winter is coming and I'd rather have this started before Jan/Feb. I just remember how bad last winter was here in NJ, sigh.
Last winter was SO horrible...hopefully it'll be a long time until we have another one like it! But I understand wanting things going before then.
So, progress at last. Yesterday at u/s follie on the right was 12 (took all week to get from 11 to 12!) and the one on the left was up to 15. Today 24 hours later, the one on the right was up to 15 and the one on the left was up to 18! Dr doing the u/s said to just schedule the IUI on my way out, since there wasn't any question it was time. So trigger tonight, IUI tomorrow and Monday, b/w on the 20th and beta on the 31st. (Hoping for Happy surprise on Halloween, not a scary one!!!)
Lurking is fun! I'm a pro!
Well, had my 2 IUIs. They went well. Judging by the CRAZY temp jump I had this morning, I definitely O'ed sometime between IUI 1 and 2, so the timing should be about as good as it could possibly be. Just have to wait and see what happens from here!
Quick update here, I start BCP's tomorrow night and my "Mock" cycle/meds on 10/28 & Mock transfer on 11/23. Need a Mammo done too. So it looks like 3 clinic visits total with my hysteroscopy on Dec 1st. Really hoping to do the DE cycle right after since my MIL will be here for December but maybe we'll fly her back out at a later point in time if finding a donor will take months (waiting list, not sure). I'm sure my MIL won't mind, she's wonderful like that.

Yay for progress in the right direction! It's exciting to be getting that "mock" cycle going! Hopefully finding a donor won't take you long at all!
