Baseline follie scan & blood work

well today I went in for a baseline ultrasound and estridol(sp) blood test. I am only CD10, so I didn't think there would be anything there. Well to my disbelief, I was on the ultra sound much bigger follies than the last time. Last cycle my ultrasound was on CD 23 and I only had one follicle that was about 11mm this time at CD 10 I had four that she measured as big and a little bigger. The nurse said that they were normal sized for that CD. So, I will be doing 3 more days of follistim shots and then another ultrasound on Thursday morning. I am hoping, & wishing, & praying that on Thursday I can get the go ahead to trigger and we can do the iui soon after. If not, we have wasted way more money this time.

I will update when I know something on Thursday. For now the rain is making my bed call!!! I am headed to bed.

Thankful for...

I have been so busy these past couple of days I haven't had time to post about Thanksgiving. So here goes!

This year I am so thankful for my fabulous family and that we were all together on Thanksgiving at my parent's house. I am super thankful for my friends! I have some of the most wonderful friends, they are there for me through thick and thin. I am so thankful for my job. I have a dream job! The people I work with are so great, they would do anything for you not matter what. I am most thankful for my loving husband! Throughout all these months of ttc, he has been the rock. I have lost my cool, freaked out, sobbed, etc and he always has been there and had positive encouraging words for the whole ordeal. Sometimes I feel like he is living in a dream world, but he is always positive and patient with me, which deserves the husband of the year award! :)

I am super happy and thankful for everything I have. The only thing that could make it any better would be a baby. But, I know that when God is ready for us to be parents it will happen!

I just can sit out of the game for long...

Well. I started on my own no doubt! No provera woo hoo! But that made me really start thinking about the whole waiting til Jan. thing. I was really torn on wether to wait or not. I mean who am I kidding its the holidays, I will not be dropping a lot of weight.... SO, I yelled Put me in coach today. I am CD 3 starting clomid tonight. Have an appointment tomorrow to learn how to inject myself and start injectables on wed. I have a base line ultrasound and blood work on Monday the 29th at 7:45. So we shall see how the injectables work. I am praying they work and we have a little christmas miracle this year!

another one bites the dust...

Its amazing... That was my theme song in college and first few years of living on my own. But for totally different reasons. Boys.... Now it takes a new meaning to cycles of ttc.

Well since this cycle was/is a bust, I can only imagine what Dr. K will say tomorrow. I have an appointment I just knew I wouldn't have to go to back when we scheduled it because I would be pregnant by now. Well here we are, and no pregnancy etc. and I am sure that he will push the losing more weight to see what happens. I am just wondering if he might try upping the clomid anyway.

I have a proposition for him though. I want to wait til Jan to try the iui protocol again. That gives me some time to lose some more weight (including the weight I have put back on since the cancellation of this cycle's iui). But, wonder if when we start again if I can move to injectables. But we shall see. I need to make my list of questions and wake up bright and early and see what he has to say.

I just keep reminding myself:

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1
