A Better Set Up

on January 12, 2016

I had to brave a minor snow squall this morning to make it to my appointment for my estridol check and follicle scan.  We’re midway through IUI #2.  We’ve been instructed to trigger tonight with the additional instruction to you know….do it.  This cycle the only change made was upping the Gonal-F by 50 iu and it’s seemingly making all the difference. 

I’ve mentioned before how I really like the level of communication this new clinic has with us.  After each visit I check my portal and find all my labs, follicle notes, and instructions and appointments to follow. So today I decided to compare the last cycle to this cycle and was really surprised. Here’s the numbers I have from the same time period during each cycle. 

             Last cycle                       This cycle

Day 8 E2      70.6                               141.2

Day 8 Follies 1×11                       1×10 & 1×12

Day 13 E2.    128                                  470

Day 12 Follies 1×18                 1×17 & 1×18

I feel like while I’m much more exhausted this go around I’m also much more optimistic.  We go in Thursday for our IUI and then a progesterone check a week later. There’s another booster this time but I don’t plan on testing because I know now how long it will take to get it out of my system. Here’s to a great week of good things.

  2. Glad you are having so much more success with this clinic’s communication. I know first hand how much better that feels. Hoping this cycle is the one!
