It went well all things considered!
I mean the CD 3 appt is always pretty boring. They're just making sure there aren't any ugly looking cysts (those will get your cycle canceled in a heartbeat!) or other weird stuff going on. Basically just getting the green light to move forward with the cycle. I was all clear.
They also draw some blood to check FSH, LSH and Estrogen levels. They check hCG levels to make SURE you're not pg. I'm like HELLOOOO! I'm bleeding like a stuck pig over here! I assure you I am NOT pg! But they want to be sure sure.
So I start injections tonight and my first follicle check is Sunday morning. They won't see anything measurable that early. They never do. I wish they would just let me skip that one and wait a couple more days - save me some money but noooooo they have their "procedure".
IUI's will likely be over the holiday, July 4th and 5th and that's okay by me. I am going to tryyyy to push it back to the 5th and 6th as DH works the 4th. They can somewhat control your IUI date by a day or so based on med dosage. Ya know, increase it some if you need a sooner IUI date or cut back a little if you need to wait another day.
I have done Bravelle (my new med) before but only in small doses in conjunction with Femara in a hybrid cycle so I have no idea how I will respond to straight Bravelle. Time will tell!
