I just got back from my CD8 u/s to check my follies for this IUI. Well as soon as she saw my right, the tech was like WOW Immediately I got worried and she moved the wand over to the left, there were about 7 little crappy follies that were lazy as all can be .... then she moved back to the right and they (she & the RE) were messing around trying to measure this big blob on the screen, still not sure if its one huge follie or two, but regardless its nearly ready to go. He wants me to trigger tomorrow (Saturday) night then IUI Monday morning. Needless to say my body is skipping any injects this cycle, that 5mg of Femara blew up the right side with this giant one (or two?). I was worried since it was measuring like 21-23 already ?!?!? My lining is ok too, he said one more day will be better for it to thicken (I thought I saw on the screen is was 6'ish). Anyways, I'm excited but scared now that just this one giant blob will not be enough. I know it only takes one but ......................... was hoping for a little action on the left too. And for sure thought I'd need injects to get things moving. Will stash that for next cycle & hopefully I wont even need it then !!!!

Can't wait to hear about your IUI on Monday. We are looking into it but my doctor charges $1100.

Hooray!!! You're so cute to be so excited! I was the same way about every little step. I hope you get to throw that old Gonal pen in the trash....along with all the wrappers from the multiple pregnancy tests you'll be taking to confirm your BFP! (I took about 15 tests and still have one left!)

I'll be thinking about you Monday! Bunches of prayers and luck!

YAY!!! I am glad the femara is kicking the right ovaries booty!

After years of trying, 2 years of fertility meds, multiple surgeries, blood draws and needle sticks, some awful pre-IVF complications, and endometriosis and PCOS,
We are done TTC. Praying for peace as we accept this...
Hoping for some comfort after our most recent (and 3rd) surgery and starting Lupron!

It looks like we are a day apart in our cycles! I can't wait to hear your bfp!!!

O/t is it just bc of iui or femera for the cd 8 u/s? I finished my script this morning (cd 5-9). My u/s isn't til Thursday (cd14). But we are not doing iui (just trigger and progesterone).
