I realized last night that I must be a total retard! When I was figuring if I could squeeze this cycle in before I go out of town I was counting my first day of INJECTIONS as CD1, when it was really CD3!!! How could I have done that? I calculated it like 16 times! I was hoping to squeeze in my IUI on Saturday and go out of town on Sunday. Now I am thinking it will be IUI time on Monday. This means either I come up with some kind of "emergency" and leave the conference for half a day or cancel altogether. Luckily it is only 1 1/2 hours away in Orlando.

Oh well, I guess we shall see what happens. I go in for my 2nd follie check this morning. Since I am such a slow starter I don't expect much progress. Perhaps I shall ask if goosing the dosage a bit might get this party started a little faster. Of course I know from all of you out in the blogosphere that I don't want to get OHSS, so maybe that's not such a grand idea...

Back in the saddle again!

Well, woo freaking hoo! My CD3 appointment with the wand monkey this morning revealed that the cysts are gone and I am back in the game! Now I just have to squeeze in this cycle before I leave for a conference in Orlando on the 27th. Please please puuulllleeeeezzz let that work out. So I start the injections tonight. I have informed the wonderful DH that he will be weilding needles nightly once again. Hopefully this will be the last time we have to do this. Then again, I say that every cycle.

Tomorrow night we attend the patient education night about IVF. That is the first thing required before you do an IVF cycle, which is the plan if this injectable IUI doesn't do the trick. If you would have told me a year ago I would even be thinking about doing IVF I think I would have puked from sheer terror! My how things have changed.
