tulipdazey :  I hope your progesterone goes down by tomorrow!

larissakay :  I love seeing day to day progress.  I’m hoping to go back in tomorrow too.  That’s sounds good for an IUI.  Most of my follicles are between 11-15.  I forget how many little I think I had about 3 little ones.

Hi ladies!

I’ve been MIA for the last little while, but just wanted to pop in and say I’m still reading. It sounds like a number of you are in the middle of some very exciting (and stressful!) times, so wanted to give you a shout out and let you know that I’m wishing you all the best!  I really hope this works out for all of you!

Sorry I’ve been kinda quiet….busy few weeks. Wishing all of you, especially those in the middle of IUI and IVF cycles, much luck this month!!!! I’m on CD18 with no O yet. I haven’t been using OPKs because I am all over the place and have been out of town (2.5 hours away from home) this week. Still using Ava to temp.

tulipdazey :  I also love that we all go to monitoring on the same days.  So food, I haven’t really changed my eating habits except for chugging gatorade and sunflower seeds (goodbye ohss chance!).  I have cut back a bit on caffeine.  I love coffee and I’ll admit it, I’m a soda junky.  I cut out soda before we started shots.  I’ll have one if we go out to eat, but I don’t buy any when I grocery shop.  I’ve also cut out my nightly black tea and canged it to an herbal tea.  That’s all I’ve done though.  TBH, I have been eating like crap this week, I’ve just been so busy and hardly home to cook.  I wish I was eating better but it is what it is.  I’ve decided that eating bad isn’t the worst I could be doing.  I’m not drinking, and I quit smoking over a year ago so there are worse things in my opinion.  I’m also not convinced eating perfect will do anything, our issue is male factor so I don’t know if anything I’m doing can help that.

Good luck to everyone who has monitoring appointments coming up! They never called with the next step after my sonogram, so I finally called on Wednesday. They want to see me Tuesday for bloodwork.

Monitoring went great this morning!  I have 10 mature on my right and 6 on my left, a whole bunch sitting right at 15 as well.  Probably going to trigger tongiht, depends on bloodwork.  Waiting for the call from the nurse, it should come in this afternoon.  Egg retrieval should be on Sunday.  I’m so anxious and excited!  I also woke up this morning so bloated and my ovaries feel like they are ready to explode.  I’m so uncomfortable it’s not even funny.  I can’t wait to get them out.
