Follicle check update
Tue, 05-17-2011 - 12:50pm

So sorry it has taken me so long to update this! Work has been crazy busy and taking a half day off for this stupid appt yesterday didn't help!

So follicle check was just so-so.





Lining was at 7.5 (which is great, I am VERY pleased with that).

The plan was to go in for another follicle check today but the blood work came back showing very high E2 levels and that I was probably only a day away from ovulating on my own so I was told to trigger this morning and we will have the IUI tomorrow morning.

The 16.47 will almost surely be 19 come IUI time and the 14.06 would be 16 maybe 17. So that leaves me with one for sure MAYBE two. Not my greatest cycle but I just keep telling myself, the two times I got pg last year were off one and two follicles and the only reason I didn’t stay pregnant was because my lining was not even 6 and implantation just could not complete correctly. If a sperm can manage to get to one of those eggs, I feel like I could stay pg but that first obsticale is a big one.

So IUI tomorrow…I am praying for decent sperm count (I would be happy with 20mil post wash and okay with as low as 12mil post wash) and I also pray that they are able to reach my uterus without a problem. Last time, my cervix was giving them a lot of trouble and they weren’t even sure if the sperm were deposited into the uterine cavity or just the inner cervix.
