Here’s my boring post. Really boring. I’m just going to write dates and doses here… totally for my own record. So that if this cycle works, I can remember what we did and hopefully use it again in a few years to refer to. 🙂
January 31 – we dubbed CD3, even though it was really cd50-something. Fem.ara, 2 pills once a day through CD7.
CD7 (Feb4) – Last dose of fem.ara with first dose of gon.al f at 150IU, within an inch of belly button.
CD9 – injection. CD10 – ovulation testing (from now until the end). CD11 – injection.
CD13 – ultrasound. 2 follicles at about 12mm each, with several tiny little things scattered around. Continue injections at 150IU, now daily.
CD14 – injection. CD15 – ultrasound, no growth on 2 main follicles… none! Some growth on other smaller ones, now with several measuring 7mm range. Increase injection dose to 225IU.
CD16 – injection. Start period. CD1.
CD17/CD2/Feb 13th – ultrasound to confirm AF. Lining is gone, follicles dying back. Begin over tomorrow/CD3.
CD3/Feb 14th – Oral fem.ara, 2 tabs once a day. Oral dex.ameth.azone, 1 tab twice a day at 1mg each.
CD4, 5, 6 – fem.ara and dexa.methazone.
CD7 – Last dose fem.ara. Still dexameth.azone, adding gon.al f injection at 200IU.
CD8 – Dexa only.
CD9 – Dexa and injection. Nice ewcm happening.
CD10 – Dexa and ovul.ation test (testing until end of cycle). Wow, that’s a lot of ewcm.
CD11 – Dexa and injection. It was the last injection in the vial and there was a little extra, so I used it… um about the 225IU mark? Hey it was almost $500, I’m not wasting this stuff. LOL.
CD12 – Dexa and ultrasound. One large, beautiful follicle… about 24mm!!! Trigger shot of hcg between 6pm and 10pm tonight to force ovulation. (10,000IU)
CD13 – Rest and try to relax.
CD14 / Feb26 – IUI procedure… insemination… aka, my date with a tube. Hubby gives his “sample” at 8:30am. I get the tube at 10am.
Trigger shot hcg stays in system for 12 days post injection. Unable to test for pregnancy until it clears system entirely, or get a false positive. Try to wait 14 days after iui… Ha! Yeah, I’ll try…
