It turns out my hCG is only down to 8 and it needs to be below 5 to be allowed to start a medicated cycle. So, no. No medicated cycle this month. AND, the news I really did not expect, it needs to be below 5 before they will consent to doing even a non-medicated IUI. So at this point, looks like this month will be a natural cycle.
But optimistiKate says things might change.
I retest for hCG next wednesday and if it is below 5, the doc may reconsider doing an IUI. And if he says yes at that point, maybe I can also ask if we can trigger. I will know my level next Thursday. So I guess we're on to a 1ww of sorts.
And, some very good/bittersweet news: I had 14 resting follicles! Go body!
