Luck, or lack thereof.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

As "luck" would have it, today is CD1. AF arrived with a vengeance this morning.

I called my RE's office and made an appointment for tomorrow at 11. I will be printing my FF chart to show my RE the super low temps. Also to show the short LP.

Prior to using injectible meds, I had 15-17 day LPs. Every time. The past two cycles have been 11 and 12 days, respectively. That is unacceptable in my book. This cycle I was even on progesterone.


So tomorrow I will go in, demand some Follistim. And not some puny dose, either. I want lots of eggs.

How much more of this can I endure? This will be IUI#5. I'm exhausted just thinking about it.


Update on weight loss!

The Weight Watchers program I was in is now over. It was 10 weeks long. I lost 9.5 lbs. I'm ok with that. Obviously I'd have liked to have lost more weight, but without exercising, I'm happy with what I lost.

I ordered a weighted hula-hoop off of Amazon. It came in the other day. I'm going to try that bad boy out tonight! I thought it might be fun to watch TV (more like watch Buster play Call of Duty...) while "hooping". Kelsey will probably think it's a toy, however, so we'll see how it goes.


  1. Eff that bitch. Drink some green beer (eww!) and march into Awful's office with your paperwork arsenal cocked and loaded. I'm not even going to say "Good Luck!". It seems a cruel thing to say today. May the bitch be with you...

  2. :( sorry for all of this. hoping your RE is able to give you what you want or at least have some good suggestions for you.
    Great work on the weight watchers by the way,.

  3. Congrats on the weight loss, that is great!
    Good luck with the RE tomorrow. You have tried it his way, now it is your turn!!!!
    I hope you get your Christmas baby!!!

  4. Blech. Sorry about the witch. I hope things get better with your RE.

  5. Aww, boo to CD1. But congrats on the weight loss! I hope your doctor is open to the ideas, good luck!

  6. I'm so sorry that AF came. That sucks... Definitely talk to the RE and demand some help! And congrats on the weight loss - that's wonderful!

  7. Dang, sorry about the BFN. But congrats on the weightloss! About a pound a week without exercising is pretty darn good!

    Crossing my fingers for the next cycle.

  8. Well first, congrats on the weight loss! 9.5lbs is pretty darn awesome :D

    Boo for AF arriving though and only having a 11-12 day lp! BLEH Makes me kind of wonder if I actually had a cycle on my own if mine would be longer than the 11 days lps I get on injections.

    Anywho, I hope your doc won't object to you getting put on follistim to get lots of eggs!
