Well I'm doing fine... I'm doing fine.

Yesterday I had an appointment with my RE. It was the last appointment before the IUI.

As you all know, I was hoping for 3 or 4 mature follicles. Instead I have one. Maybe two. I'm pretty devastated. I make one egg on my own, without all the extra expense. I'm just disheartened and jaded and pissed and sad.

I have a 19.3mm and a 15mm. Who knows if the 15 will actually rupture. I asked my doc and he said he didn't know, but that it wasn't the good one anyway.

I trigger tonight and go in on Thursday morning for the IUI. I will start progesterone on Saturday.

I already feel out and I'm not even in the TWW yet.

  1. Im sorry hun. That is frustrating. Is there another Re in your town/city? Could u get another opinion? I was told by my re that a follie grows 2mm a day roughly and to release it needs to be around 18mm. So you follie may make it!!

  2. Kara,
    I'm sorry! I can relate to those pissed, angry, sad feelings! I agree with Travica though, is there maybe another RE close? my RE won't trigger until there's 2 or more follies at 18 or 20... I think you've still got a good chance though! try not to feel "out"... :) <3 hope you have a good day!

  3. I am sorry. That sucks.
    However, at least you are doing the trigger shot and there is no worry about going in at the wrong time! That must be a relief!
    I am thinking of you and hope that that one follie is all you need!

  6. I'm sorry. I know you are frustrated and I would be too. All hope is not lost though... it only takes 1. I know you'd like the more chances, but try to think of it this way, even if you had 3 more, maybe that 1 you've got would be the one to make a baby. I had 3 eggs and got 1 baby out of the deal. I always think - I could have just had that one and it would have still worked. :)

  12. Sorry for the lack of follicles :( There is a good chance the 15 could have an egg in it though, so hoping! Hang in there, sending lots of positive thoughts your way.

  16. **HUGS** Lord do I know how frustrating it is just to get 1 follicle. Hopefully the 15mm has a nice little mature egg in it as well though.

  17. I know you're disappointed but there is hope. I got my BFP from an IUI with only one mature egg. So it CAN happen and I hope it happens for you!! Good luck!
