Happy ICLW thanks for stopping by!! If you haven't followed along so far here is a quick update for our Journey So Far.
If you aren't familiar with ICLW its a wonderful group of women who have become some of my best friends and biggest supporters- you can read more about ICLW here. If you are looking for a group to help pick you up and cheer you on they got your back :)
So far IUI #5 has gone like this-
-First no follicles wanted to grow.
--Then no follies grew again.
---Then one follie showed some initiative and grew enough to keep the cycle moving forward and left a little hope.
Which brings us to today- first off my lining is T/L 12mm which is prime baby making goodness. Three cheers for uterine lining!
My Right Ovary- which was 11mm and (2) 9mm follies- today they are 16mm and (2) 13mm -my cyst seems almost resolved. He didn't even measure it.
My Left Ovary-which was 9mm and 8mm follies- today they are (2) 13mm
So we went from little to no hope to possibly having to cancel the cycle because if they all continue to grow we would be talking about the possibility of 5 mature follicles.
Dr O says he doesn't want me to trigger yet and I need to come back again in Monday for yet again another ultrasound and more blood work. Im also continue 225 IU Menopur and Dex .25 daily.
**edited my APN just called and told me my estrogen is still low and they do want me to up my Menopur to 300 IU daily till Monday. Which officially scares me, but she says its going to be just fine.
There are a few scenarios here-
Scenario 1- I surge on my own and ovulate prior to Monday's appt. IUI would be canceled and DH and I should proceed with caution on TI b/c lord only knows how many follicles I could release. I have a friend who had twins with a 14mm follie.
Scenario 2- I don't surge on my own. I return Monday and the perfect/ideal number of follicles continue to mature. 3 at most continue growing and then I trigger and have my IUI Wednesday.
Scenario 3- Anything over 3 matures and the IUI is cancelled fearing high order multiples.
So now I go from praying "grow grow grow" to asking for God to only let a few grow and stop some of the others. I feel like I am being picky here, but quintuplets is not something I am ready for, however I am ready for a baby or two.
God has a plan here. Praying it all turns out exactly how its suppose to.
Happy ICLW my friends and thanks for all your well wishes, happy thoughts, and prayers. IUI 5 is still moving forward- however with caution.
