All systems go...

I went for my CD16 ultrasound today and it didnt look terribly promising. On the left I now have 3 follies at 9mm, on the right I had a 15.5, 13.3, and a 9. This means that the lead follie is 15.5 so we are trying to get it mature enough to trigger ovulation. Overall my RE was hoping for better growth by now but we will take it. At that time he told me that we would have to wait for the blood work but that he thought I would do 2 more days of 225IU Gonal-f and then trigger on sunday night and have the IUI on tuesday morning. So I left and I waited.....

This afternoon they called to tell me that my e2 was 428!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS SO GOOD FOR ME! It was 66 on tuesday so this means that this new dose is helping me, finally. So they said that they wanted to do one more night of 225IU Gonal-f and then trigger tomorrow (saturday) night around 9:30 and IUI on monday morning. Sound simple, right?! Well, its not. We are leaving for Pittsburgh sunday morning to go to a wedding of one of my best friends from college. Due to the fact that monday is memorial day the office is only open for a small time to do the inseminations. So we have to be there to give them our "sample" between 7:30 and 8 and then the IUI will be at 9am. Basically we have to leave pittsburgh at like 3:30am. WOW. I promised Justin that I would drive, so I guess I wont be drinking too much at the wedding, darn!!!

I was thinking this totally sucked till a few of the girls on the board pointed out to me what a story that would be for my child someday if this IUI was it for us. PLEASE let this be it.


  1. I am really excited and hopeful for you. Enjoy your weekend and drive safely! Good luck!

  2. wishing you the very best of luck with this iui.
