We're a the skin of our teeth

Such a weird saying...teeth don't have skin. I only thought of that after seeing it typed out.

Today did not get off to a good start. Went in for my baseline u/s and had a cyst on my left ovary that was concerning. They did blood work to check the estrogen levels to make sure that cyst wasn't putting off high levels. If it was, this cycle would be out and let me tell you, I would have been one unhappy, ranting, kicking and screaming blogger.

She just called. The doctor likes the levels to be less than 50 to continue forward with the cycle. My level was 48 so apparently the doctor said we're good to go.

I mean, I know I let off a huge sigh of relief. I was all prepared to tell them lets just get on with the Laporoscopy and start again next year. Thank goodness we get one more shot before we move on to the diagnostics.

So the plan is:

Femara 5mg - Cycle days 2-6
Gonal-f 75ml - Cycle days 6-10

Ultrasound on cycle day 9 (since Thanksgiving is on cd 10) then determined which day I'll be triggering and which days we'll be going in for the IUI's since we're doing back to back this cycle. The nurse was assuming sometime between Friday and Sunday.

So I guess for today, I'm really thankful that I at least get a shot this month.


  1. I am so glad you get another shot this month, lets hope it's the last shot you'll need for a BFP. Sounds like your RE has a great protocol lined up for you this month and I am hoping with all my heart that this does the trick. Go BFP!

  2. I am ecstatic to hear of this wonderful news. I believe were all trying to get that BFP before the new year begins. Wish you the best of luck and hopefully Santa comes early this cycle.

  3. This is really nice post works well and easy to configure...thanks for all info.Carpet Tiles Abu Dhabi
