Update on IUI Cycle #2

I started my Folli.stim injections on CD 3 and took my last one last night...or so I thought.  If you remember, I'm doing the same protocol as last month - 100 iu per night for 6 nights. 

Well, I went in for my monitoring appointment this morning and I had 5(!) measurable follies - 4 on the right and 1 on the left.  (WTF is up with my lazy left ovary???)  They ranged in size from 12 - 15 mm.  I also had bloodwork to check my estridol levels.  I checked my voice mail a little while ago and my levels were "good" according to my nurse.  She told me the numbers, but I can't remember.  So the plan is to do the Folli.stim injection tonight and tomorrow night then go back to the RE for another ultrasound and more bloodwork on Thursday.  My nurse feels like I'll be ready to trigger on Thursday night and the IUI will be Saturday morning.  EEK!!  Can't believe it's already time again.

Oh and by the way, if you're wondering about my lining...."It's great".  Those were my nurses exact words.  Today it measured at a 7.2 and she said it would continue to thicken as the follies grow.  Plus, the trigger shot will help prepare it for implantation.  Not sure if this is due to my shorter period this month or the blueberry pom juice I've been drinking everyday.  Who knows? Who cares??

I really hope this is it.  I have a good feeling about this cycle.  I feel like it's finally okay to have some hope. 


  1. Wow, that all sounds great! I have hope for you too. :)

  2. Hope everything continues as planned and your IUI is on Saturday! Exciting!
