Overcoming more obstacles..

This cycle would be nothing if it were not for obstacles.

This entire journey has been one giant obstacle.

I had my CD 12 ultra sound today. All follicles were on my right side there was a 20mm, 17mm and a 14mm and 12mm. My lining was at 7mm. I met with the head of the practice today and we talked about my progesterone levels and discussed taking progesterone suppositories - he wants to wait for my blood work to come back and I am okay with that.

I will take my ovidrelle trigger on Saturday night and they want me to have my IUI on Monday.

Memorial Day Monday my friends - of course I was off, however a co-worker needed a favor and so I picked up his shift for him.

Now I need to find coverage for myself- not an easy feet when the entire weekend is suppose to be a washout- except for Monday, when the sun is supposed to shine down on us.

They also have me going to a office about an hour away because the office down here will be closed on Monday.

So now we are trying to figure out coverage and getting up there. Its added stress that I could truly do without- but we will figure it out. We will find a way.


  1. Kasey, I'm sorry you're having to deal with so many obstacles, it shouldn't be this hard to have a baby!! But, I'm excited for you that the IUI is so close, and when you're holding your baby in your arms all these obstacles will be forgotten, or at least well worth it. Hang in there girl! I hate that some of us are struggling so hard to have a baby, but I know in the end it'll be ok.

  2. Thanks Kristine- everything always has to challenge us in some way shape or form! Its looking like I have coverage thanks to some lovely coworkers who didn't ask too many questions and pulled together for me. Ill remember to thank them if this IUI works lol. Im excited to have a group of good follicles, and a good lining- now I just pray everything works out for us this time<3 Did you see my msg last night on the TTC thread about your scan?

  3. I just saw it now! Thanks for the info. I looked at the article, I still find it a little confusing, it seems like they're talking about follicles resulting in eggs for IVF, so I'm not sure what my follicles will mean for just a regular cycle?? I guess it's good I'm seeing the RE next week, I have many questions for her!
    I hope this is your cycle!! Did your RE think that increasing your clomid has made a difference? Good luck on Monday!

    1. Yea I saw they were talking mainly IVF there, but those follicles means you have a good reserve I believe. I hope the RE can answer all of your questions! He didn't say anything about it, but I think it did make a difference since they are bigger this time. Hopefully my progesterone goes up this time as well. Nothing else I can do but wait and keep a positive out look! I will let you know how I make out on Monday:)

    2. I hope you have a relaxing weekend! Can't wait to hear how Monday goes!
      Oh, I tried to find you on facebook but I'm not having any luck. My last name is frost if you want to find me.

    3. I tried to find you~ there are so many Kristine Frost's lol. Im not sure which one is you lol! I will keep you updated :)

  4. funny, I didn't know my name was that popular :) Hope tomorrow goes well for you!

  5. Thanks :) If you try to find me under Kasey Argenbright it may be easier for you?
