The RE said the lining was nice and thick (12mm)...any one know what's considered normal?
He was very pleased with the follies. I had two on the left measuring 29mm and 30mm and one on the right at 22mm.
However, I did get some bad news. The post-coital test was awful. Pretty much all of the sperm were dead. I feel like such a failure. I feel...betrayed. First I got pregnant really easily. Heck, Dominic was a bcp baby. I just couldn't carry. Then my body decided to stop ovulating. I got over that with the theory at least we'll still be conceiving at home...even if we need meds to get me there. But now my body decides to KILL the sperm. Really, is this some sort of cruel joke? Because, I'm not finding it at all funny.
So, anyway, our plan very quickly changed. We're triggering at home tonight (instead of in office this morning) and going in Friday for an IUI. Luckily DH has to do some work that requires the network to go offline so he had scheduled to work Friday night for today. (As opposed to his usual just switching days which wouldn't have allowed for the IUI.)
I feel as though I'm grieving in a way. Grieving my "natural" conception. Betrayed by the fact that my body can't do a single thing right. Terrified, knowing that even if we do conceive on this plan, there is no assurance that I'm even going to be able to carry the pregnancy to term. We never did get an answer about WHY I kept miscarrying.
This is our last ditch effort. We've already agreed no IVF. If this doesn't work, we're done. (Of course, I don't know how many IUIs we'll agree too...)

great news about you lining and follies but sorry to hear about your hostile CM. as this is the only test that we haven't had it makes me wonder if i have it, too...
the good news is that with an IUI you bypass th CM so in theory you should be good to go! or, at least that's how it was explained to me!
i've got everything crossed for you augie!
thank you bonnie (cavewoman) for my beautiful siggy!
