Good job with your sigs! It’s always nice to see someone’s story.
Yes, looks like I’m just a bit ahead of you two this month. U/S Friday, unless I “peak” before then. So the fertility monitors measure lh as low, high, and peak. Peak means you are ovulating. If you are doing iui, if you peak, you do your iui the next day, no trigger needed. My doctor didn’t think it would happen before my u/s on friday, but I’m not so sure. Ovulating doesn’t seem to be an issue for me at all, it’s the actual conception part that isn’t working.
Did my first injection last night. I was very nervous, but my husband rose to the occasion. Unfortunately, I have a vial instead of a pen, so we had to draw it ourselves. He did all that, and I was going to do the injection. Once it was all ready, he just did the injection for me, super easy!
Berkely Mom- Yes, it really stinks that $ has to be such an issue. My husband and I are in a position where we can absolutely afford to have a child, we can even pay out money to do these treatments. But, we can’t afford thousands a month for meds, or tens of thousands for ivf or de. And even more frustrating, I had if coverage when I started treatment, and they actually took it off our plan halfway through plan year, literally right as I met my deductible. I still get sick to my stomach when I think about it! It looks like you had success with clomid before, so you have that on your side!
Jhottinger- I see you’ve used both clomid and letrozole? Could you tell the difference? Until this cycle, I’ve only used letrozole. Last month, my doctor pretty much said with my age and the fact that I only had one follie on the letrozole, he wasn’t really worried about me having multiples. He said he thought I’d be ok with twins, and just asked if I would do selective reduction with more than 2. I assured him I would be willing to do that to save the pregnancy. I definitely feel more pressure on the clomid. I’m really interested to see what’s in the old(and I do mean old!) ovaries on Friday!
Well, it’s great to have found you ladies, it’s always so nice to find people going through the same thing. Hope you’re both having a great day!
