Hi ladies! I hope you're all having a fantastic weekend so far!

My cyst shrunk to 15mm and I was able to continue with my treatments. I ended up triggering last Wed and had my IUI on Friday. I had two follies and my DH had 10 million sperm after wash. Now I just sit and wait. The Follistim sucked. It was worse than the Clomid for me. It gave me massive migraines and nausea. That stuff was horrible!

I hope we don't need to worry about any of this crap after our current/upcoming cycles because we all get our BFP's!! Babydust!!!!
Amanda: 34: DOR, POF, LPD.
DH: 41: Concentration: 58 mil. Motility: 38% Volume: 1/2 ml Morph: less than 3%

Amanda: that's great news that you were able to proceed with your cycle and ended up with two follicles! Sorry that you dealt with those side effects though. Fingers are crossed for a BFP! :luck:

AFM, I'm on my second day of Femara. Will be starting Follistim in just a few more days. I'm getting really anxious about things. It's still kinda surreal that DH and I are actually trying again. I guess on one hand it's kind of good that I'm busy with work and packing so we can move. Its helping keep me from obsessing over this cycle as much as I have in the past.

Choob: Sorry that you had such miserable side effects. I actually have fewer side effects with follistim than I did while taking Clomid. Hopefully you'll get your BFP and won't have to go through it again. Good luck!

Hoping: Sounds like you have some follicles responding! Hopefully not too many more days and you'll be able to trigger.

AFM, my first follicle tracking u/s is on Sunday morning (CD 11). In the past, I've never been ready to trigger before CD 16, so I'm not expecting much, but hopefully there will at least be something starting to respond. I'm getting anxious and excited!

Just popping in to see how things are going. Also, if you ladies get a chance, I entered a local contest and could use a couple of votes to get back in first place. Just got to http://a.pgtb.me/CNf199, log-in with Facebook, click "like" in the upper right hand corner, then check the box next to "vote" under my story that was titled "My husband and best friend". Thanks!

Had my first follicle tracking ultrasound today. So far, I have four 11s on the right and a 9 and 10 on the left. I go back on Tuesday to see what is responding at that time. In the past, I've never been ready to trigger before CD16, so since today is only CD11 it's hard to tell what will happen. I'm praying for just one good follicle on each side.

Good to hear from you! When do you plan on testing? :luck:

I'm currently 4dpo and using prometrium vaginally twice a day. My RE doesn't check progesterone levels when you're on supplements, so I won't have any blood work unless I get a BFP at home first. I plan to start testing out my trigger on 6dpo. In the past it was out of my system by 8 dpo and I got almost all of my BFPs on 9dpo. I'm getting anxious to figure out if this cycle worked or not!

planing to test 16dpiui as suggested by re... well he told me to test 15dpiui if af doesnt show, I told him dat progesterone prolongs af from coming so it would be false hope if she doesnt come... so he told me 16dpiui..

how many follies did u end up having, I know u said four from ur earlier scan..

so nervous, dont want it to mess up my weejend, so Iwill just prob wait till 16dpiui...

how ling do u have to do the progesterone suppository? im just doing once a day (100mg) for 14 days... my re told me the suppository won't get in ur bloodstream, just straight to ur ovaries/lining... he checked just in case he needed to prolong my progesterone...

good luck! wish us both BFP!!!

I ended up with three 17s and a 15. We've never done iui before, so just did TI again this time too. My Re usually recommends iui with injectables to increase you chances of a successful cycle, but since I got pregnant so many times without it, he said we could skip it again. If I get a bfp, I'll continue the prometrium until about 8 weeks. Then, at 16 weeks I'll start weekly injections of 17p to help prevent preterm labor.

I'm so sorry about the BFN :(

I'm 9dpo today and having been testing out the trigger since 6dpo. On 8dpo I barely had a line anymore, but it was back this morning. I'm hoping that means I'll end up with a BFP this month, but I'm still nervous that it might be the trigger. I have a post with pics on the POAS forum.
