More progress (updated) + June ICLW

Things are looking good:
  • Right Ovary: 10 follies: 16, 11, 10, 12, 11, 15, 12, 10, 8, 12
  • Left Ovary: 5 follies: 16, 8, 10, 14, 12
  • Lining: 8.7 mm (over the 8mm mark! Yippee!)

Waiting for the phone call to tell me if we trigger tonight or tomorrow.

I have continued to eat pretty low carb, which has helped with the bloated feeling.

I'm very, very excited.

For you ICLW'ers - welcome to my blog!

Hi, I'm Jem, a (just) 40-year-old, eager to add to our family. We're smack in the middle of IVF #2, with ER scheduled for either this Wed or Thur. We are MFI, so even though it's Mr. Jem's swimmers that have ruled out us getting knocked up "naturally" I must have something to do with our lack of a viable pregnancy because our first fresh IVF ended in a chemical pregnancy and the second in an ectopic (or something).

Despite those two negative outcomes, we are very positive and full of hope for IVF #2. This cycle is WAY easier, as I know what to expect AND we have swimmers on ice so Mr. Jem won't have to have a testicular biopsy this time (he was a total trooper!!)

Another great appointment! I wouldn't doubt if they hold you one more day before trigger...maybe to just let those few smaller guys grow a little more. Either way, you are doing a great job in there!

Nice to meet you! I hope that you will get that trigger soon and feel better. The drugs, oh the drugs. I'll trigger and do an IUI at the end of this week so we are close in our cycles! Good luck!
