First Monitoring!

I had my first monitoring appointment this morning. I paid the $700 clinic fee and then waited in a packed room. I was on the of the last ones there, so I knew I would have to wait the longest. I got my bloodwork taken first, and even that nurse commented on how busy it was today. A while later I was taken for an ultrasound. There was a resident there who started the u/s, then Dr. T came in to double check.

From what I saw/heard, I have 5 follicles on the left and 2-3 on the right. The ones on the right looked bigger to me. I picked up another two days/$300 worth of Gonal F for today and tomorrow, then I go back Wednesday morning for the same thing. Then I will see if I need more meds after that or not.

But from my calculations 8 follicles is too many for an IUI. I don't want to jump to conclusions, but if they all continue to grow this cycle will have to be cancelled or switched to IVF. And I ain't gone do no needles for nuthin'. (Sorry, I read The Help all weekend! Amazing book, BTW)

So glad this is all in God's hands. Thanks so much for all the prayers I have been receiving!

Hey there! SOO exciting to hear - thanks for sharing! I've never done an IUI so am not sure what the follie count should be, but your number sounds great to me!!

Will definitely be keeping you, your dh, and your precious follies in my prayers!! Best wishes, sweet friend.

Sounds promising ... lots of follicles! I hope that the doc takes good care of you.
I watched the movie "The Help" this weekend. I'm sure the book is way better, but I really enjoyed the movie!
