Hubby needs to call to make a doctors appointment, the problem is he won't get his roster until late Sunday evening and his days off are usually early in the week and it takes a few days to get in to the doctor. That bloody test cost $100, we need to call our private health cover and see if they will give us some back. Not too long ago I had thought of taking all obstetrics and fertility off our cover to try and make it cheaper, I never got around to it so I am glad now.
Ahhh. I see. I understand the pain of booking appointments with shift work. I have that problem as well as my shift changes every week, and then can change from day to day as they need people to work. I hope you get the results soon though!
My follicles are looking good this morning! On my left I have a 12mm one and two 10mm ones. On the right I have one 12mm one. They wanted max 4 so I'm good. There are lots of other 8mm ones, but they think I won't have to worry about those. If any start to creep up, I will just stop the Gonal F and coast to ovulation.
I'm excited! IUI should be middle of next week. Maybe Wednesday but I'm hoping it will be Thursday as I'm off work that day!
Good luck Rachael, things are sounding good. A Mum at DS's daycare has had two IUI's with great success
I got a call from our nurse this morning and it seems my body is responding a little too well to meds this time (they don't want any of those 8mm to catch up as 4 follies is enough for IUI!) so they lowered my dose of Gonal F starting tonight.
I was just thinking...if follies grow 1-2mm a day, I could have close to mature ones Monday (16mm). I wonder...do they trigger when the folly is mature, or do they trigger early so that when I actually do ovulate it's mature? I'm confused...
I have no idea sorry, give them a call, I'm sure they would be happy to answer. I think I am in the TWW now. My temp went up like it does and i am CD 16 and I generally O on CD 15. I haven't used OPK's like normal this month, I did one the other day which was snow white and am trying to lay off the crazy this month
Great news that you are responding so well! I think they try to catch them just before, but i'm not positive. I hope that all goes perfectly!
I'm not sure when I O'd but hope we caught the eggy... waiting to test this weekend.
Still waiting... Think I will O this weekend (if the clomid works right!)
Anyone else still waiting?
My RE always wanted atleast 1 20mm, my girlfriend is doing IUI right now and her RE wants 24mm before trigger
Thanks Audrey. Today I was close to 18 on two so I'm guessing trigger will probably be tomorrow night. I'm paranoid though that we will miss it all and my body will surge on it's own... I'm also worried about the 36 hours after trigger before IUI.... seems too long to me.
I think part of me is done...and this may be my last try. DH and I had an argument last night and it's clear he is done... I just.... I need a sign. If this works then so be it, but if it doesn't, I have no idea what I'm going to do moving forward...
Well, IUI is tomorrow, trigger tonight. Turns out I was right and my body is surging on it's own! That was fast!
Good luck to you!!!!
IUI done. They want us to DTD tonight and tomorrow as well though because the trigger can cause any remaining mature eggs to release in 36-48 hours (any that my body didn't release on it's own). I will stay here until Thursday then after which I guess I'm in the TWW... pregnancy test is May 14!
Bonus, today is Beltaine, which is a day/festival to celebrate fertility! Maybe it will be good luck!
Yay! I'm glad all went well today!
I am hoping to ovulate friday or saturday if it works the same as before. Then I will be right behind you to the TWW.... I am planning to test at 10dpo.

Yay! You are using OPKs, right? How are they going?
I plan to test out the trigger shot. Last time I had one it was gone by 7DPO. I'm going to start testing at 3DPO with dollar store tests (as I ran out of ICs) that way I will know if I'm preggo or not!
I was going to test on Mother's Day, af would have been late by then, but now I give up. Either I haven't O'd or my body hates me, my temp went down again today. I am only what I think might be 4dpo. I give up. I'm trying to stay positive and do affirmations and stuff but this morning I just can't do it.
Hugs! Doesn't a temp dip indicate implantation? I'm no expert though! I was horrible with temping.
Ug...does anyone get super painful "down there" during O?
Even when I'm on just a regular cycle, during O time sex is so painful. It's like I'm being stabbed by knives in my cervix!!
And now with the extra follicles, I'm dying today just sitting here! Uggg.... I'm actually dreading sex a bit tonight. I will have to tell DH to be gentle....
I haven't even got cross hairs, and stupid me tried to relax a bit this month and not use OPKs as much. I do often get a temp dip on 4 dpo, and had it on every single one of my chem pregnancies. It could be implantation, I may just implant early, but without it picking up cover line it's hard to tell, though I am pretty sure I o'd. I put my chart in for those who know more than me.
My Ovulation Chart
I guess I'm here now, should O in the next day or two. Last cycle ended in a chem pg, but this month continued on a lot like usual, just O a little later. I go for my first appt with the RE on Monday, looking forward to what she has to say!
