Follicle check - very unhappy

Went to the RE doctor this morning and I am really disappointed. We went through the added expense of the shots and the outcome is the same - one follicle.

I'm sorry, Chouli, (((hugs))) Its never easy getting that kind of news at your U/S. Here's a little inspiration for you... I know someone that had only 1 follie and her Dh's SC was low, and they were still able to concieve on their IUI. Just thought I'd add that in here to let you know that there still is hope. Good luck to you!

Okay, now I know the last thing you want right now is for someone to blow sunshine up your butt, however I *have* to say this.

When I moved from Femara to a Femara/Bravelle hybrid, I had the same response. I STILL only had one follicle. I cried all the way home. Two weeks later, I was looking at a BFP. I lost that baby at 5 weeks.

The next cycle was the same way! Althought that time I managed two follicles (still not the response we were looking for). Again, I cried all the way home and again two weeks later I was looking at a BFP.

BFP despite a crappy follicle count happened to me twice, IN A ROW. Don't lose all hope.

By the way, I would have had you trigger tonight with a 19mm follicle too

Thanks, ladies. I cried, took a nap, and now I'm determined to feel better about this. DH deserves a positive wife and I hate to see him so frusterated/disappointed in me. I think it scared me when he and I were having "a talk" before my nap when he said if all hope is gone for me, that we should just stop trying w/ the RE.

I'm sorry Chouli...but I do hope that the nurse is right and this one egg will do it this time. I totally get it about your dh not getting it. I see my dh kinda giving me the "evil eye" when he sees me on this board often. I can't help it....you girls are the only ones I can talk to abou this kinda stuff......MEN!!!!! :smileymad:

UGH! Those comments, even from medical staff, just do NOT help. I'm sorry things are not looking great right now. Fingers crossed that your 19.6mm is the lucky one!

I am sorry that you didn't have more mature follicles and I know that it can be super frustrating. My IUI will probably be on Jan 1st and I will know my follicle numbers next week. I really hope it works for you this time. My fingers are crossed.
