Good omens and trigger shots

Postby Jenn_rn » Thu Dec 27, 2012 7:41 am

Hi all...hope you had a great holiday!
I'm currently sitting in my doctor's office waiting for ultrasound to check my follicles for possible trigger. I had 2-14mm and 2-13mm follies on Monday.
Now for good omen, on Christmas my husband's grandmother, who has Alzheimers, asked him when the baby was due. Obviously we're not pregnant yet and no one in his family knows we're trying. I'm hoping maybe she foresaw good things.
I'm Making my New Years Resolution to get pregnant in 2013, and since everyone knows New Years Resolutions barely last past January I'm hoping this cycle works :-)

How did your appt go? Are you having an IUI this cycle? I was also at the RE this morning getting an ultrasound to check how my follicles are progressing.

My follies looked GREAT! Except maybe too numerous. :-) My largest was a 21mm, there were 6 large enough that they could ovulate. No IUI for us, my RE doesn't think we need it. They gave me my trigger this morning, so now the fun part, then the waiting. I go in next Thursday for an hcg booster.
So how are follicles progressing? Are you using follistim? And are you doing IUI?

Mine were good, I have 3 at around 17-18mm. No follistim, just Clomid. My RE is having me trigger tonight, then my first IUI on Saturday (which also happens to by my mother's birthday so maybe that's my good omen :) ) How long have you been TTC?

How much clomid? It took 250mg to get me to ovulate. Which I don't do on my own at all. I had crazy side effects on the clomid though.
We've been trying for 13 months. I've only ovulated 4 times though, this time being the 4th.
How about you? Been at this long?

We'll be in our TWW together! That's awesome. Hopefully our good omens being our BFPs together

100mg this month. I didn't notice the side effects last month with 50mg, but I was definitely moodier this month. I ovulate normally, my RE just has me taking it to increase the odds. Same with the IUI. This is actually our 13th month as well. Last month was the worst for us. That was my first round of clomid + trigger shot so I had my hopes up. I had a faint positive on a FRER at 16DPO, but a negative blood test that afternoon, then AF finally showed up a couple days later. Hopefully we'll both get our BFPs this month :)

Side note - I just noticed your signature and it looks like we got married around the same time (9/21/09 for us).

Married Around the same time, ttc at the same time and triggering the same day :-) Small world.
I had a line on internet cheapies at 13dpo last cycle, but it was my hcg booster still in my system. It was my worst month dealing with af by far. I also had to take a few weeks after last cycle because my ovaries were still too big. Which sucked most.
They don't know why I don't ovulate, which is frustrating. Especially since I paid for birth control for so long. Lol. My sister went through
infertility issues for years, so that often worries me but gives me someone who "gets it" (besides the dexide ladies on here).
My husband has really been a rock for me. He's attitude is very much "when it hapens it happens".

Yeah, the unexplained issues are the worst. My RE has no idea why I haven't gotten pregnant yet. My husband and I have both been through the basic testing and everything comes back normal. I don't really have any female biological relatives still living so I don't really know if anyone else has had trouble ttc in my family. My step family and in-laws seem to be extremely fertile though so I get a lot of "just relax" type advice. It's definitely nice to be able to come here and talk to other people who really understand.

All of the women on my dad's side of the family and my aunt on my mom's side have had trouble. My parents were VERY fertile though, and my brothers have had the same luck. My sisters-in-law don't get it and seem to get annoyed when my sister and I get emotional over it.
The not knowing why may be the hardest part. They said it was PCOS, but I have no classic PCOS problems. They drew extra lab work for genetic abnormalities though, still waiting on those results.
Haha! Too funny

Had quite a breakdown this evening. Dh and I were leaving for a party and I had hoped to BD before leaving. He wasn't really in the mood. I completely lost it. Ugh. This process is far too exhausting and emotionally wearing. Hoping this cycle works.

I totally understand. It's such an awful thing to be stressed about too. I remember when we first started trying it was a lot of fun, but paying so much attention to scheduling/timing puts a damper on things sometimes. I'm getting a little worried about our IUI tomorrow morning. We have to do the IUI within 1 hour of collecting the sample, but my RE's weekend office is 45 minutes away and it's supposed to be snowing in the morning. Hopefully we'll get there in time.
