My favourite nurse called back yesterday afternoon to tell me to trigger at midnight on Wednesday. Our IUI is scheduled for 1:30pm on Friday – CD 14. The hubs will make his deposit at noon.
I asked about my lining. She said it was 6.8 (I think) and it was on track for where my follicles are.
I asked her if I could have another ultrasound on Wednesday. God bless her soul, she agreed to try to schedule me one! My joy from feeling like my fertility clinic was, for once, listening to my needs was quickly shattered as Wednesday is my OB/GYN’s hospital day. No 2nd ultrasound this month. Whomp, whomp, whomp. 😦
So I did what any Type A personality would, I went through my past 4 medicated cycles and made a list of follicle sizes and IUI dates.
|Dec-13||CD 10||13||CD 15 Natural Ovulation|
|Jan-14||CD 10||14.5||CD 14 IUI|
|Feb-14||CD 11||20, 15, 12, 2-11s||CD 13 IUI|
|May-14||CD 10||2-13s, 10||CD 14 IUI|
I wish I had written down the entire counts instead of just tracking the largest ones. They always say I have a ton of little follicles as well. Overall, making this list did make me feel reassured that my Friday timing will be fine.
I’m feeling crappy though. I slept on my back instead of my stomach last night. My right ovary is constantly tingly. Oh Clomid – how I missed you – NOT!!!
My OB/GYN and my RE both say that I react strongly to my 50mg dose of Clomid. They are leary to bump me up or try me on anything else. Makes me wonder if I even need these drugs! Bah!
My work colleague told me I should work from home if I’m feeling shitty, but I made myself get up, get dressed, actually do my hair and go into work today. I’m not going to wallow in self-pity at home.
The end goal will be worth it. I just need to put on a façade until then.
