possibly but probably not-update

Just a quick update, well, what can I say?
I am right on the cusp of the IUI vs IVF cutoff, so we'll rescan tomorrow- I have tons (for me) of follicles on the right side but but but they are small, so probably only the top 4 (2 from the left, and 2 from the right) will be even potentially mature. They are confident about 2. We are thinking I will trigger tomorrow night for whatever fun we'll have on thursday, but really? It is looking like IUI since my lead follicle is already at 17 (17,15,13, 13 and maybe 6 more under 10)--- E2 1498.... this decision may be out of my hands.
So, if IUI, I will try to be positive, since it is, after all, how I got pregnant. So it is possible, it can work...

but shit. I hate being on the fence, not being sure what we'll be able to do. And I just want to optimize our chances of success. But hey now, at least I have follicles! And my E2 from saturday indicates they are not decoys... so I will try to focus on being happy about that.

It is the most beautiful crazy warm breezy day here and I want to be home in the hammock after taking a long (orange vested) hike. Alas, work.

**update** we'll see how things are tomorrow but Dr. M is encouraged by my E2 and we may try to push things off one more day to see if we can get more on board. I am happy with this.
I may know more tomorrow.

Kate, thank you so much for stopping by and offering your sweet and wise words.

Keeping my fingers crossed that you get a solid batch of follicles to work with this week.

Ever so silent, but frequently thinking of you.

Here's hoping for more, for either a really over-the-top iUi or a good IVF!

just me, dawn said...

Hi -- thinking of you often even thought I've been quiet. We'll save Liam's polar bear/lamb halloween outfit for you and yours. Hoping to be sending it about 9 months from now. Hang in there, what a nutty and consuming few days of monitoring. Love to you,
Elizabeth

Oh good luck in pushing it another day for more. I hope you get some good news and want you to have a big dose of happy magic. Your hammock sounds delightful, I want to swing and snooze.
