Um…this cycle is still on. Went in totally expecting no change and to cancel the cycle. Instead I got a lovely image on the screen. 3 follicles on my right ovary (15mm,12mm,13mm) and 1 on my left (12mm). Based on the growth my doctor feels confident that I will be ready to trigger Thursday or Friday and set for an IUI this weekend.
I’m in shock.
My lining is still pretty thin but it was much better than it was last time. It is at 4mm so my doctor is going to have me use estrogen suppositories until the insemination. The only problem now is finding a pharmacy that will have them for me today. Apparently the nurse called around and the closest one that had them on hand was in Beverly Hills which is an hour and a half away. She said they could mail them to me but by the time I get them I don’t know if they would do any good. I told her this concern, she said she would talk to the doctor and call me back. I am hoping we can find some way to thicken up my lining so that my lovely little follies will have a nice place to grow.
My insurance also cut me off today. Not that I was expecting them to pay for any of this, but we have been going ahead with just billing them to see. They told me today that every time I go into the office I have to pay everything up front. Plus now I have a huge balance from this cycle. Blah. I hate insurance business.
I now we know that I just make eggs really slowly. Which is good because then at least I don’t get upset when I am not where I “should be” early on in my cycle. As long as we get where we need to be in the end I am happy.
