So I feel like I have taken more of everyone's time than I should be, but I figure if people don't care they can just ignore my posts
Those who know me know I am not always a debbie downer, but this cycle I feel like that's all I have been and I apologize.

Just to back up- Saturday they scan showed 2 follicles but they were large 22 & 24 I think (and a 15 trailing behind). I really feel I am not meant to go to CD14 and should be triggered CD11 or 12.
My temp went up meaning I O'ed yesterday but like I said in another post, I hope the large went yesterday and the smaller one/s went today. Wishful thinking.
So I did the IUI today and she also wondered if there was actually a polyp or not. Seems odd to her but it happens. I can't have an HSG because of the iodine allergy. She agrees that I need to have a Saline infused sonogram but it can't see if my tubes are blocked or not. But since I got pg she knows at least one is okay (I think both are). She thinks we need to do this before ivf for sure. She said the endometrial polyp could cause m/c, but again doesn't think I have one per say.
So here's the problem (isn't there always one?), I would have to have this done after AF but I will be on vacation next cycle :/ So it's out for next cycle. In fact I am not sure I will even be here for my CD3 bw at this point.
So we decided to not waste the next cycle and go ahead with Femara (increase the dose) and IUI ( I will be back just in time). I think this will be our last IUI but its all up in the air. I am not sure since the testing is still up in the air. I wondered if maybe I can do it while on the BC for the ivf if that's what they will want me to do. I dunno and I am trying to figure out how to get answers since we are not yet patients doing ivf until we pay for a cycle and I don't want to do that until we are 100% and the IUI have or have not worked y/k? I think maybe email. I can't remember what he said.

After the IUI we went to the UR to go over the results. It was interesting. So you ladies were right... Because DH's count is so high it kinda makes up for the morph. On top of that (again, Dr TTCMAs was right) that they dont even really know what to do with the strict morph and there is debate. He said it's useful for ivf but they really aren't sure in regards to fertilization.
He did however find that DH's testosterone is low. We kinda suspected that. He said that alone wouldn't hurt fertility (because if it was hurting his count wouldn't be so high) but now he wants to check his prolatin and see if that is elevated which that we suspect also. If that is elevated, he will have an MRI on his pituitary gland to see if it's a tumor or just occurring- so surgery or medication depending on the results IF his prolactin comes back high.
He said beyond that we have exhausted the testing and such with him. He said we can keep going with IUI but if it doesn't work we obviously need to move to IVF and figure out when that would be (financially and emotionally).

I also got the fee rate from the IVF clinic and it was about where I thought. Now I need to figure out which plan to pick (single a la carte or a package). We have some coverage on diagnostic but no coverage on anything including medication oh well!

So just a side note: My Dr told me some interesting news, I guess the medical foundation that she works for is acquiring the IVF clinic I went to. So weird but cool because she can send all her stuff easily to them when it starts.
And then the UR we went to is in the same building as the IVF clinics second location and that's where DH got his SA (and while all other tests can be done elsewhere, the IVF clinic requires an SA with them so we hope this counts) even tho they are not intertwined.
I swear this is the bay area and not some small area so this is kinda weird!

SO I hold not much hope for this cycle and I am trying to focus on vacation packing instead of 2ww. I say this now but we will see 10 days from now lol!

Now gonna basically copy and paste this to my blog

Thank you loves for all the support!!

I am praying you don't have to worry about anything else because this IUI worked!! Hopefully vacation can be a nice distraction. But it seems like you kinda have a plan in place or at least know where the path is leading if the next two IUI s do t work. However you won't need to because this one worked!

I think that sounds like a solid plan.

I'd push to go earlier than CD14- We learned with me on Clomid there was no point in me coming in before CD16, as I never was ready that early, but on Femara I was ready to trigger on CD12.

Crazy enough to try all over again for a second together baby! Hoping for a much less wild ride this time!

TTC with PCOS for 5 very long years. Annovulatory cycles. Multiple doctors. Different meds. One horrible loss. And then one wonderful success, born 2/18/14.

I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26/13
