Hey folks! Sorry for the radio silence over here. I’ve been going in every morning for monitoring ultrasounds and blood work, but since I don’t get the blood work results until the afternoon, I end up getting behind on the update.
At any rate, yesterday my largest follie was up to 16mm (up about 1mm). The others have all been dropping off and are all under 10 at this point. Sad face for that – I was really hoping another one would come out of nowhere. 🙁
So here are my numbers from yesterday (Tuesday) morning:
Estradiol: 232 (up from 174.4)
LH: 15 (up from 5.8)
Progesterone: 1 (up from .5)
Lining: 7mm (up from 6.9mm)
Right follies: all under 10…I think they were 6, 7, 8 if I remember right
Left follies: 16mm (hopefully my future baby!), 6, 7
I’m still waiting on blood work results from this morning, so I’ll post about that in a bit. Thinking I’ll probably be triggering tonight, driving to Denver tomorrow, and doing the IUI on Friday morning. I’ll know more after I talk to the nurses and find out what the RE wants.
Thanks for all the encouragement and support ladies!! It’s so weird to have so much emotion and hope involved in a cycle again. It’s been awhile. I’m hoping to get into my acupuncturist one more time before I leave too – it just does so much to help me relax.
On another note, part of the reason I didn’t post yesterday is that I was up snowboarding again. Yeah, I’ve been going a lot lately, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to go this weekend thanks to the IUI (which is a bummer b/c it’s closing weekend – super fun!), so I was trying to get a couple days in quick pre-IUI. 🙂 Sadly I only got 12 days in this year but 12 is better than none I guess!
Because I was riding with a friend yesterday who doesn’t know about the TTC/IUI stuff, I ended up sneaking my needles and menopur with me into the restaurant we went to for apres-ski because I knew we wouldn’t get home by 6pm. LOL.
