We are now entering the week of IUI #2. To date this cycle has been pretty lovely with zero pharmaceutical side-effects and the ease of having been through an IUI before. I feel even more confident because there is always something we are doing to prepare, whether it be ultrasounds, the femara, or even post-IUI meds. I have always said I am a body in motion and this mini-stim protocol is a perfect distraction.
Tomorrow is the all-important CD11/12 ultrasound to check how my little ladies are doing. Hopefully they have been quite busy nurturing at least a couple gorgeous follicles. I would really love 3 or 4. I can’t say that I am not nervous for this appointment though. I know that many of you lovely ladies had great responses on letrozole and I am really, desperately praying that I will have a similar response. Please, oh please, dear follies, show some fantastic stuff in the am!!
In the meantime, I received our all important druggy package. Funny how those really small suppositories and itty bitty pre-filled syringe came in such an enormous FedEx box. Talk about overkill. I did get a little nervous butterflies while I investigated that Hcg syringe…needles are so awful. And I totally get the irony of me making such a statement. It is quite funny, when you think of it.
Side note: My intestinal resection/anastomosis patient is doing fantastic!! I am so thrilled. She is eating and was happily trying to play with her owners when they came to visit today. We are still not out of the woods but I feel so much more optimistic about her recovery!!!
