Checking for symptoms.

I am guilty! During the 2 week wait, I drive myself crazy thinking about possible pregnancy symptoms that I could have…breast tenderness, fatigue, nausea…you name it. Now, don’t forget, I am on progesterone right now, so I decided to look at the potential side effects and…yep.  Wanna guess?   breast pain, fatigue, nausea, and the list goes on! 

So I am making myself crazy for nothing.  As of right now, no news is good news…lets keep it that way!

7 days down, 7 days to go…

If AF does not appear before next Monday, I will be heading for the blood test Monday morning.  

To test or not to test???  I have not decided whether to test on my own or not.  If I do, I will at least wait until this weekend.  Geesh, the wait is so hard!

14 days and counting…

The IUI’s are done and now we wait.  The sonograms today showed that 3 follies had released as of today…one more was at 22 so it could possibly release I guess.  I start porgesterone on Thursday.  PLEASE let this work!

Trigger tonight!

So my appointment went well today! I’ve got 3 strong follies…IUI Sunday/Monday!

  • Right: 22, 20.5, 17.5(she said that the 17.5 has a 70% chance of releasing)
  • Left: 20
  • E2: 1186
  • Lining: 10.5
Cross your fingers!

Another day, another appointment…

TGIF!!!! What a week! So I went in today for another appointment for a follies check and we are getting closer!!!!

Here are the stats:

  • Right=18, 18, 15, 13 
  • Left= 16 

Estrogen went up to 996 and lining was 9.something.  I seem to be stumping him…even on such a low dose my estrogen is rising quickly.  He said he is a control freak and is unable to control my what is happening inside my body.  Oh well! What this all means…NO SHOTS tonight, but get to go back in tomorrow morning for bloodwork and sonogram…what’s another $180!! Anticipating either a Sunday/Monday IUI or Monday/Tuesday IUI…stay tuned!

After the appointment, I will be off to cheer on the longhorns! Hook ‘Em!

Appointment Update #2…

I went yesterday for a follies check and things are moving right along…

Right is still in the lead with a 15, 14, 10, 10, and the left has a 12.5.  My estrogen shot up from 117 to 462, so they lowered my dose to 37.7 for last night and then back to 75 for tonight.  My lining looked good at 6.8.  go back on Friday!  That is all for now…off to school…we are going on a field trip to the pumpkin patch today!!

Appointment update.

Oh what a Monday.  UGH! It started off with bloodwork at 7am, then headed to docs for 7:45 appt, then rush to school in rush hour traffic…I feel like I have been up for 2 days! But who’s complaining…not I !!??!

Got a good report from the doc…Right follies are in the lead with a 13 and 12, and the left follies are close behind with a 10, 9, and 8. Lining was a 4.2 and Estrogen 177, so I will continue with a dose of 75 tonight and tomorrow.
