RE appointment today

Met with the RE today to discuss an injectible IUI cycle next month, we decided not to do it mainly due to cost, it was going to be around $5000 for everything and we just don't have that money available to us right now, the other reason we decided not to go for it is because statistics show not that big of an increase in pg success with injectibles vs. clomid at my age, it is a little bit of an increase but not enough to spend that kind of money. Dr. decided that we have done clomid long enough it was time for a break and if no BFP this month (IUI on 100mg clomid end of this week) we will switch to Femara, I am happy with that. I had an u/s that showed a follicle measuring 22, it is CD12 today and Dr was very pleased with that, there were also 2 other follies close behind. My lining was almost a 6, he said it should get thicker in the next few days so that is ok too. I have another fibroid that is causing some issues but he doesn't think we have to talk surgery again yet, ugh. Dr. also said my FSH number at 15.5 is nothing to worry about with that kind of response to clomid, YAY!!! =)

Got my fingers crossed for a positive this evening! I know it has to be agony to abstain- just a little longer maybe,

Thanks, still no +OPK yet and it is morning CD15, ugh! RE tells us no dtd for 2 days prior, well you have to guess at that so we are going on day3 of abstaining, for us that is HUGE! Lol.... It stresses me out too because I know we should be putting some guys up in there now! I am sure I will get a + this afternoon or evening, it is always on CD15 I just hate the waiting when it is this close, but waiting is what we do.... sigh....

Hey LaRae. I'm glad you got some answers today. I wouldn't invest that kind of money for only a slight rise in the odds either, plus I don't have it to invest anyway.

Sounds like you have a very good RE. I hope he doesn't have to change you meds because of a BFP but glad he is on top of things.
