so, um, what to say?
CD10, stim day 8...
Apparently I have not yet ovulated (which is great!) but temp is up more today (which is confusing! I do not have erratic temps generally.)
The ultrasound showed that I have a fine crop-o-follicles, seriously, they are lovely, but
while the left ones are plentiful, they are small (I think I saw 12,11,10,10 and several others under 10)
the right ones are few but much bigger (I think I saw 17,17,15)
bigger enough, in fact, to make it TOO LATE FOR ANTAGON
no chance to recruit the left ones and now we just play this out with the three from the right.
From what the kind nurses said, this means no IVF conversion.
Maybe trigger friday for an IUI this weekend
or natural ovulation before then
But my lining too thin (5.7mm) for anything right now
so here's hoping we'll eke a few more endometrial plumping days out of this.
For those of you asking the REALLY OBVIOUS QUESTION-- why did they wait a whole week to check me? well, last time I was a slow responder on this protocol, and I guess they felt we had time. We didn't. Next time they'll check sooner.
I think it is fair to say I am aggravated (I am not a pissy person otherwise I would probably be ballistic). As my sister said, I do not have time for their learning curve. And it's true. It feels shitty. But it is what it is.
They'll call later with E2 and a plan...I'll post again then.
Cynicalkate says: well, at least it is a relatively short cycle so I can get on to the next cycle sooner. And that thought? That thought makes me sad too.
Ok universe, prove me wrong. I'll be gracious.
