All Set for Saturday

We are all set for the IUI Saturday morning. Follies at 1.9 and 1.5, today the lining is at 8mm so I'm hoping that it'll thicken a bit more by Saturday.

I had the double pleasure of getting both a belly and butt injection today. I was a bit surpirsed to be getting follitropin at the same time as the trigger. If I'm being triggered, why make the follies bigger? But then I'm not a reproductive specialist who sees hundreds of women a week, so what do I know.

Speaking of hundreds of women, the clinic was super busy this morning. I saw loads of other foreigners there. I often see one, but today I counted five other foreign women there at the same time as me. I also had to wait at every turn. Perhaps it is now the season for fertility treatment.

I'm hoping that the discomfort I'm feeling will have passed once I ovulate. I'm also considering whether to test for the trigger leaving my system, but I haven't decided whether I can take the stress or not. I've come to terms with the fact that the early symptoms I had last IUI were probably just the effects of the trigger, so I'm hoping to wait to test until at least day 10 post IUI.

All sounds great - 8mm is really good for endo, I think :) Could the follitropin be to help them mature or is that what the HCG is for?
As for it being busy, Spring is meant to be the best season for fertility treatment, so that could be it!
Hope it all goes smoothly on Saturday and you start to feel a bit more comfortable.. don't be surprised if it takes a little while as it takes some time for the ovaries to go back to normal size xx

I have no idea about medication but trust that they know what they are doing. It's just a few days away know! Hope the transfer goes smoothly for you.

Congrats on finally getting a date set for your IUI!

As China Doll said, don't be too surprised if it takes some time for your ovary-pains to go away. If they are enlarged now, it will take sometime (3-4 days?) for them to go back to normal and not bother you.

I hope they know what they're up to with your meds.

Thinking good, happy, hopefully soon-to-be pregnant thoughts for you!

Thanks everyone! I'm currently in bed waiting for my husband to call and say he's done his deposit so I know what time to get to the clinic. The sperm washing takes 2 hours. Have quite a lot of tenderness so hoping that's ovulation.
