I went in for my follicle scan today thinking I had no mature follies and feeling very minor ovary tenderness. Turns out I have one at 25mm. Wow. So I'll trigger this afternoon and IUI tomorrow - Surprise!! It was cute b/c when she put the "magic wand" in there her first words were "awesome lining!" I said, "yeah, its my best feature."

Girl, that is an awesome follicle and don't worry about not feeling it. I had over 5 over 18 my last IUI cycle and I didn't feel a thing! The truth is most women can't feel mature follicles and only some can even feel O.

As far as when you will O, if you trigger this afternoon I wouldn't expect O until tomorrow at the earliest which is perfect timing for your IUI.

I don't think you could have asked for this cycle to go any better.

Congrats, and we are practically on the same cycle. Oing at the same time and all. How long are your cycles? I'm at 24 days.

I was always a 28 day person, but since I've been doing IUI, I will know on 12/12. Cycle buddies!

Today I had the nurse who has obviously been doing RE work for years. She is calm, nice and super informative. She always answers my questions. Some nurses aren't confident enough to answer and claim the RE will have to tell me. Anyway, I got super-nurse and when I told her I was worried that I only made one follie, she said that's normal for Femara. She said in 10 years of using it as the first-line medical intervention, they've only had a 3 or 4 cases of twins. She said it almost always causes only one or two follicles. It was good to get reassurance that I respond well enough to the med. I was afraid I should have been producing more.

Wonderful news, Chouli! All the best, hope this is the one for you! It's weird how someone like you, who is so in tune with the twinges etc, can get such a surprise! A very nice surprise though, crossing everything for ya! B
