You are just so optimistic... I LOVE IT! :D I don't know why my body is being so stubborn... you would think a low dosage would get things going. But apparently I need more than a little push. My RE kept telling me he wanted to start slowly because he is worried about overstimulation & multiples & all that. But so far none of the stimulation has been enough to do anything! If I AT LEAST ovulate this month... even if I don't get a BFP I will feel much better.
I have a really good feeling for you this month... I truly hope this will be it for you!! (And for me too) It would be great to have each other to talk thru our pregnancies too!! :wink:

Okay, AF is officially here. So today is CD 1 again for me. I am feeling optimistic for this month... praying again for another BFP! I go in Monday for my cycle day 3 work up and then start my 5mg letrozole Monday evening. I will keep you updated on my progress & keep me updated on yours as well! Let me know how your CD12 ultrasound looks!! :)

So went in for cd12 ultrasound this morning. I have 9 follies! but only one is big enough. I have 7 on my right side; one 19, two 14's, three 13's, and one 12. Left side had one 14 and one 12. My endo was 8mm, up one from last month so that is good! i have been taking vitamin b6 because I read it helps increase lining. Looks like it did just a little bit so i will take it!
Are all your provera side effects gone since you are on cd4?

Well that is good news! And as far as only having one follie big enough... All you need is one!! :wink: And that is great about your lining as well! I am on CD5 now so I am still taking my letrozole. And yes, most of my provera side effects are gone. My face is starting to clear up finally. The nurse I saw on Monday said if I don't ovulate this month on the 5mg letrozole that we will have to come up with a new plan. Probably move onto injectables. My only issue with that is the cost.... all of this is so expensive already, I cannot imagine how much the injectables will cost. I am not sure how many months we will be able to afford it all. :( So I am praying & hoping that I ovulate this month (And get my BFP) But at the least I just need to ovulate!!!
When will you go back in for your trigger shot & IUI?

Why don't they move you up to the max dose of letrozole? 7.5mg. That's what I started with. I jknow what you mean about not being able to afford it. I am paying about $700 per month, and I'm not on injectables. My insurance doesn't cover the iui or trigger shot.

Glad to hear side effects are almost gone! :)

I trigger tonight and iui Friday morning.

Can I make a suggestion?? I also have pcos.... I had ovarian drilling... When I was 17 not for fertility but for my cycles and pain. I did end up pregnant but it was an ectopic. Anyway I have two babes now and I firmly believe had I not done the surgery I would be in the same boat you are in. Before you go through the expense of iui and Ivf I would recommend just asking about it. It was a day surgery done outpatient and I was back up and running the next day.

It was the nurse who said if I don't ovulate on 5mg that they will need to find a new plan for me. So it wasn't my RE saying it, so I don't know if she is just assuming he would do something different or what? I haven't seen my RE in awhile bc I usually only see the nurses. So I don't know if he would go up to 7.5 mg or not?? And as far as ovarian drilling that has never been mentioned either. I know that we haven't really tried to many different things... but I also know that what we have done so far is draining our health savings account. My DH & I had a fight about the $ last night. :cry: It just adds a whole other element of stress on top of the emotional aspect of all this.
But I am just going to try to stay positive bc maybe I will ovulate this month on the 5mg & I am worrying for nothing. Yay for your IUI tomorrow!! Soon you will be in the TWW again!!! :D
