Post op

Just wanted to give an update on my post ob. The only thing he found was very very mild endo. He said it wasnt even stage one. He said with cleaning it out that it upped our chance of conceiving by 5-10%. With our male factor he said we should do a medicated IUI cycle. We are going to do half clomid half gonal F. He also said that he thinks I do need the PIO which makes me really happy. I really believe thats what we need to have this work. I don't wanna do it but I do.

No word on foster care, still waiting on State to sign our paper so we have day care. So much for 2-3 days, it's been 2 weeks.

If you want more of an update see my youtube channel.

CD 7-3dpiui

Sorry I've been so bad at updating, I've been so sick.

I ending up stimming for 9 days. 150IU of gonal F the first 7 and 75 the last two days. I was sick the whole time.

I did IUI on Friday. We had 12.6 million sperm. I had three mature follicles and possibly two more that might have caught up. They had a really hard time getting in my cervix but finally did with a lot of cramping. I'm on crinone this time and I like it much better. I hope it helps!

Yesterday 2dpiui I started having really bad pain in my ovaries and back. Couldn't even sit up this morning at 3dpiui. I finally talked to the doctor and he said based on my E2 level day of trigger he doesn't think it's ohss. He thinks my ovaries are just inlarged and swollen. He told me to keep drinking gatorade and track of my weight and if I gain more then 5lbs call him. I hope thats all it is but I'd really like to not be in pain. I pretty much slept all day today and I have tomorrow off already since my brother is in town. Hopefully I can at least make it to lunch even if I cant go to the lake.

Tuesday they started me on 150IU Gonal F, first 3 days went well. Day 4 of meds, yesterday cd5 I got really sick to my stomach. I can't keep any food in me at all. TMI warning*****************

About 2 or 3 hours after I eat, and it doesn't matter what I eat I'm either throwing up (thats only happened once) but most is horrible diarrhea. I can only assume it's from the gonal F. Its really not fun. I have spent way to much time in the mall and walmart bathrooms over the past two days. Who lives like this?!

Anyways I had my cd5 US and it showed 5 or 6 lead follices. I got back Monday for another US. I really hope this is out answer.

CD2 Appointment

I met with the PA today and she said she is still really positive about my case. I start gonal F tonight. 150IU for the next three and then US Friday. They don't know why I started bleeding but they are going to change me to crinone first before switching to PIO.

I'm scared but I'm so ready to do this. I've decided I'm going to focus on me this cycle and stop worrying about everybody else. I just can't give give give all the time.


10dpiui- spotted twice so I was hopping it was implantation bleeding

11dpiui - spotting got much much worse so I figured I was out but still hoping it was implantation cause I'm on progesterone.

12dpiui - I've been bleeding to the point I need a tampon, not as heavy as normal but much more then spotting. Tested before all this this morning and it was neg so.

How do you start your period on progesterone? I've never had a cycle this should. I'm so annoyed. I have an apt tomorrow to go over my injectibles and I'm going to talk to her about why my cycle is so short. UGH anything else I should ask?

Test was neg this am so it must have been trigger. I've never tested positive before 12 so it would have been crazy. Ugh a few more days!
