My faith in this cycle just isn’t there. I am going through the motions and unfortunately those motions are accompanied by a persistent dull headache that just does not seem to want to go away.
I have been doing my OPK’s and since yesterday I still hadn’t had a natural LH surge I called the clinic to schedule my IUI for Saturday. They are the type of clinic where you never talk to a person when you call. It’s always leave a message and we will give you a call back. My last clinic was like this so it’s not a huge deal but my last clinic was great about calling back in a timely manner. I called at 12:30pm and left my message that I needed to schedule the IUI and needed to know what time to take my ovidrel.
I didn’t hear back from them until 5pm to which point I was already beyond frustrated. Whatever, they actually called me so great. We are scheduled for an IUI at 10am Saturday morning.
I just hate not knowing my follicle size before triggering. I had follicle sizes 16, 15, 12, and 12 on Monday. Assuming they grow only 1-2mm per day that would mean by Saturday morning/ovulation they should be 20-24 and 19-23 (with the assumption that the two smaller ones fizzled out). I know these numbers look good but I would have liked to know for sure that they were ready. Oh well.
Of course this morning I woke up to tons of EWCM and think that I am ovulating today and we are totally going to miss the window but hopefully that’s just me over analyzing and worrying.
We will see just how different the actual procedure is with this place tomorrow. Regardless I have already picked up my BCPs to start if this cycle doesn’t work and plan on scheduling my injection class for as soon as I can after I know this cycle works or not.
I do hope this works, with every ounce of my being, but I am preparing myself for the next steps so no time is lost if it doesn’t.
