Follicle check - good news
20
Thu, 10-28-2010 - 8:26am
Woohoo! :smileyhappy: I have two dominant follicles on the right ovary - one is 19mm, the other is 19.9mm. There are two on the left ovary that are 13mm each, but that's too small. The nurse was happy and to wait for the doctor to call and tell me the specific timing, but that I'd be giving myself the shot tonight and IUI on Saturday. She said my lining is 11.5 thick . I think that's good.
I'm ready. Very ready.

Chouli, those are awesome follicles! Two at 20mm? I couldn't ask for a better follicle check and yes I would expect them to tell you to trigger tonight. You don't want to let them get much bigger and you O on your own and mess your IUI timing all up. So I would expect your IUI to be Saturday morning.

Yep! Trigger shot sometime between 6-8pm. DH's appt to "handle his business" is at 7am Saturday, with the insemination at 10am. The nurse told us that the possibility of twins is very real and we would only proceed if DH and I were ok with that.
WTH!!?? YES, bring it on! LOL

My very last cycle, I had 5 definites and 5 more maybes and they made me sign a form stating my position on multiple gestation as they were VERY worried about it. Turns out I couldn’t even get one I sure hope you have that “problem”! :)

I loved it when my IUI fell on a weekend! No time off work!

Wow I wish I made that many follicles, the most I ever had was 3. I've toyed with the idea of changing meds, but Femara has done its job. I get follicles, and it hasn't damaged my lining.

Oh yeah - you don't want to mess with the Femara if it's working. I only got those kinds of follicles off injectables which make for a super good lining in addition to lots of follicles. Unfortunately, niether the Femara or Clomid ever gave me more than one follicle most of the time. Once or twice I got two but usually just the one

Do you think the left follicles have a remote chance if they were 13.1 and 13.8? The left ovary has been hurting as much as the right. It feels active.
