CD 10 follicle check

omg!! The appt couldn't have gone better!

Three follicles – with two mature today. 19, 18.5 an 14.

Lining was 8!

They gave me a small dose of low dose hcg to try to get that 14 to catch up.

They are gonna call me in a couple hours with instructions. No more meds and they said to stop the Estrace - uhhh okay lol

We will be triggering either tonight or tomorrow. I'll know when they call. I hope we trigger tonight because if we trigger tomorrow that means a Sunday IUI and we can't do that because of DH’s schedule at work! I explained to bitchy nurse that we need to try to make it tonight if possible and she was actually really nice about it and said she would do everything she could.

I feel SO VINDICATED! I went with my gut on not using the Femara or the Estrace this month and it worked out for me big time. If I had gone the way my dr told me to go, we'd have a repeat of last month. I am so glad that I trusted myself. Dr’s don’t know everything! Sometimes you have to be your own advocate.

Just waiting on the call from the nurse now about when to trigger. After that we just need to keep our FX for a great sperm count!

Oh, Celle, I am so happy for you. Did you just do the bravelle? I know you didn't wanna do the estrace. I have such a good feeling about this cycle for you. GL!!!!!!!

Yeah, I only did the Bravelle this cycle. Femara thins my lining and Estrace apparently keeps my follicles from growing so I didn’t take either one and it looks like I did the right thing. Lining is great and follicle count was great too. I can’t speak to what is and isn’t going to work for women in general but I know what each medication does to me and I knew I had to stay away from the Femara and Estrace.
