the plan

having talked myself down from the place of whatthefuckness,
here's the plan:

stim tonight and tomorrow morning then
IM trigger tomorrow night
for an IUI saturday morning

my E2 was 1303
official follicle count from nurse's summary notes (including just the ones of note):
R 17,15,14
L 13,11,10....and others

so by saturday they hope for 4 big juicy ones.

I'm relieved as hell I did not ovulate.
I'm frustrated as hell about not catching this cycle in time to possibly use those other follicles in some way that would increase my chances of success (say, IVF).
And I am hopeful as hell since the barely 5% chance of success IUI worked last time.
Through some miracle maybe it will work again.

And if not, there's always next time.

Counts are pretty impressive by my standards! Good Luck Kate!

Hopefully there won't be a next time, but if there is, you'll know to be pushy on the "monitor me now, people" front. I'll be thinking of you on Saturday.

Fingers crossed for Saturday! This actually sounds like it could be a perfect IUI cycle, you know? I understand that the chances are marginally better with IVF, but you've already had such good luck with IUIs, that I'm already feeling excited for you about this cycle!

Oh I want this to work for you! And now - not next cycle, but this one! Because I'm greedy like that.

It's always great to have a plan. I'm glad you have figured out your plan. With IF sisters I really believe the odds mean nothing, just because they are technically low means nothing, you had a miracle before, and I believe it will happen again for you!!! *hugs*

Plans help make us feel more in control of this really hard process. I love plans! Great numbers.

Looking good - I am sorry that it could not translate into an IVF but I will keep it all crossed for a successful IUI.

Your E2 looks great.

Sweet Kate-I hope everything works out on Saturday. I'll do a special silly dance for you and your sweetie on Friday at midnight for extra good juju.
