Had my midcycle monitoring yesterday. It wasn’t very encouraging 🙁 lots of follies, but all but one were really small (8-9mm). The largest was only 11mm after 5 days of 7.5 mg of Femara. Nurse basically said results were inconclusive and that they needed me to come back Wed for another scan. If they don’t see at least a 4mm growth by then, the nurse said we’re looking at a hybrid cycle in Jan of Femara and injectables. They’re hoping I’m just a very slow responder (which with only one ovary/tube I guess isnt too abnormal) and that I’ll just need more time, but it doesn’t make me feel any better about any of this. Still hoping and praying for a Christmas miracle though!
And I opened up to my SIL via email and told her we’ve been trying. She was super sweet and said that they’d been wondering if we were trying and would continue to pray for us and then my mom, Mother-In-Law, cousin, best friend and some of you awesome charters all checked in after the appt just to see how we were doing. It is so helpful to have the support of everyone esp after its a discouraging appt. Thanks ladies.

hogoboom2012: Many good vibes for a nice 4mm or more growth by Wed!!! It’s so nice to have real life support. I opened up to my mom once and to my friend about our struggles. It’s nice to be able to chat about it at times. Also sending you prayers for a little miracle soon. <3
AFM, AF is on her way. So thats TTC cycle #1 a bust. I’m just hoping AF comes tomorrow and not on Xmas eve. I just want to start again now.

hogoboom2012: Sorry the mid cycle monitoring was discouraging but you aren’t out yet! I had a clomid cycle with a 10mm and a 12mm at mid cycle monitoring and they told me to come back in four days and we would see if anything grew. They both grew and the bigger one had already ovulated by the time I went back in. So checking in two days sounds good to me – don’t give up hope yet.
AFM, I also have monitoring on Wednesday. Added in 50iu of gonal-f yesterday. But I forgot my injections yesterday and took them 6 hours late. I was so focused on icing my ginger snap cookies! Not sure when to take them today now.

FreckledFox: I’m sorry about AF coming, I hope she arrives sooner so you can move on to the next cycle.

FreckledFox: One cycle under your belt. Wish it was the one for you guys, but it sounds like at least the idea of TTC again is easier now that that one is out of the way? Getting impatient instead or nervous is a good thing! Wishing you all the luck in the world on your next cycle. Obviously this one was a bust so we could be preggo buddies together from cycles in January, right? 😉
Feist: Oh no! Does you doctor have an online portal or someone on call you can ask? Personally, I set a few reoccuring alarms on my phone at 30 minute intervals just before and when I need to take my meds. One for a reminder that it’s soon and one to actually do it lol. Gingersnap cookies sound amazing btw! No wonder you were distracted!
hogoboom2012: Sorry you’re appointment wasn’t ideal. Are all your follies about the same size or varied? Slow is ok to a point. I wouldn’t worry yet. On the bright side, you have lots of follies, which is super awesome considering you’re working with one ovary. I’m a little jealous TBH 🙂 I hope they grow well enough for a good cycle.
arielmerms: I hope your results get better. MFI sucks 🙁

hogoboom2012: I’m sorry your appointment was disappointing 🙁 but there’s is still hope! They know it took 10 days of femara last time, so why didn’t they put you back on more femara? So nice that you were able to get some real life support — there’s nothing like a real hug when you need it. Either way, virtual ((hugs)) to you, and good luck today!
FreckledFox: I’m sorry your first cycle was a bust :(. I’m really hoping and believing that 2016 will bring SO much happiness for you and your husband – don’t give to hope yet!
Feist: Good luck today! I have no idea about the late injection, but hopefully you got ahold of a nurse who could answer your question. Remind me – this is for IUI, right? And I hope your husband is rocking his interviews and gets his top match choice!
Hi guys, I’ve been following along periodically, but my husband and I decided that for this last cycle of 2015, we would try but pretend we are not trying, to keep the crazy at bay a bit. It’s working great for me, but unfortunately my poor Darling Husband is having a really tough time. He turns 30 next week, and he’s just having a bit of an existential crisis, saying he’s worked so hard to provide a life for a future family, and he really thought it would have happened by now. I’m used to being the one needing consoling, and seeing him so upset it really hard. Also, AF is due on his birthday, and he mentioned that a positive test would be a really great birthday present, so I’m worried he’s just going to be crushed when it doesn’t happen. Anyway, I am still here cheering you guys on!!!

Had my monitoring today. 3 follicles 10-11mm and a lining of 5.3mm which is as thick as it ever got last cycle! So really on track for a decent lining for once. And the rest of the follicles have fallen back so not going to have too many which was the worry with PCOS. Originally they told me to come in for monitoring on Christmas but then they called and told me to start the cetrotide on Christmas but to come in the day after.
