3rd ultrasound was just devastating. After being on meds for 14 days we looked no better today. I have only 1 mature follie on my right and 12 less than 8 on my left. The problem is that I have a right blocked tube and is risky to go ahead with the procedure. The doctor is not confident that the IUI will work and why spend the money if there is a slim chance. They now want to check my tubes to see if the left is open and I am not sure why. If we are moving to IVF I feel doing a tube flush is a waste of money. Right now I have so many mixed emotions. I called out from work since I cannot look at any of the pregnant women, plus I am an emotion wreck. I am not sure how to feel right now. The next step for us is IVF. We know I can produce eggs it is just a matter of getting them to grow. I am sorry that this is all rambled together but I just cannot think straight right now. I can’t help but wonder if I will ever get to have another child and give my DH want he truly longs for. After all the tears, money, and sweat and we have nothing to show for it. I never thought in a million years I would have to go through this.

Oh Katrina, I'm so sorry. That really is heartbreaking. Does he have any explanation why the follicles aren't developing beyond a certain point?

I don't blame you for not going to work. Take the time you need at home away from all the reminders. Many hugs.

There's not much I can say, except that I feel for you. No one should have to go through this. I hope things start looking up sooner than you think! ((hugs))

I am so sorry to hear that the u/s didn't show any improvement.

I totally understand about not going to work. It can be so hard to concentrate and worry about possibly start to get upset and cry while at work. This is a lot to deal with, and take all the time you need to get through it.
